Nudity is often associated with live performance art, but is it sometimes used as an excuse for getting naked in front of an audience?
This performance piece is a little strange, I think everyone would agree, but is it actually art? Are some “artists” just using art as an excuse to get naked in front of a large number of people without anyone calling the Police?
The idea is simple: Between 4 and 6 brave volunteers are posted in a gallery and everyone gets 24 hours to vote for whoever they want to lose an item of clothing. At the end of 24 hours, the participant with the most votes loses an item of clothing and the next round begins. Everyone who didn’t lose the previous round, keeps their votes, the winner’s votes are reset to zero. Then the voting begins again!
The challenge isn’t over until at least one participant is stripped COMPLETELY naked!
If you are daring enough to risk losing all your clothes in our community site, further instructions are available here.
We lined up 5 volunteers who are prepared to let the public vote their clothes away. It’s the first fundraiser event for our NakedExperiment Community and gives everyone an opportunity to make five average people to suffer the embarrassment of being stripped naked for all to see.
It’s taken way too long to get here but the detailed written account of the third Naked Experiment session is finally out on Amazon.
Five members of a women’s amateur netball team, aged between 36 and 45 needed help preparing for a naked fund-raising calendar. The rest of the team were happy to take part in the calendar shoot, but these five lacked the body confidence and wanted help overcoming their shyness.
Follow their progress as they tackle ten challenges that lead them gradually from shyness to nudity. This written description includes introducing the participants, the challenges, interviews afterwards and conclusions drawn from the results. 80+ pages of transcripts and descriptions, with location diagrams but no photos.
It’s taken way too long to get here, but the full report on Naked Experiment session #2 is finally complete and available on Amazon.
We got six people together, three women and three men, with ages ranging from 22 to 52, to try out a range of situations involving casual nudity. These included:
Someone being chosen at random to be the first one naked and the group watching them take off all their clothes.
A person is given the opportunity to strip any one person naked.
Participants voting on who should be naked, then watching that person undress.
Everyone given the option to get naked together.
A presentation where the presenter is presenting their own naked body.
An outdoor fully-naked challenge for one participant.
There are also short interviews with the participants after the session and each participant had the opportunity to pose for a souvenir photo where they are completely naked and the rest of the group is fully clothed (photos NOT shown in the report for privacy reasons).
The report is available as a Kindle publication. Don’t worry, you don’t need a Kindle to read it. The free Kindle app is available on PC, Mac, Web, Android, Windows Phone and iOS so almost every portable device is covered.
Sorry to disappoint everyone again, but the written report for Naked Experiment Session #2 is still not complete. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, lack of time. I run this site, and the community here, entirely as a hobby. I have a full-time job to pay the mortgage and work is particularly busy for me in the lead up to Christmas. Grabbing spare time to work on the write up keeps getting harder. Secondly, the second experiment session was longer than the first and, because we were more efficient, we got a lot more done too. There’s simply a lot more to write up.
It will be done soon. I’m about 7/8ths of the way through it now. There will be a big announcement here, in the community and on Twitter when it’s ready to download.
In the meantime, if you haven’t seen the full report on the first experiment, you can see it HERE. Download a free sample any computer, Kindle, Windows Mobile device, Android device or iOS device. Don’t forget – if more people download report #1, it increases the incentive for me to get report #2 finished!
