It’s that time of year again! Now 7 years old, the annual North East Skinny Dip has taken place again in Druridge Bay in Northumberland, UK. Their most successful event yet saw 737 people braving the far-from-warm North Sea water to raise money for mental health charities. Next year we’ll try to announce it BEFORE it happens!
The Coach and Horse, a pub in Soho, London, believed to be the first and only pub in the country to have a nudist licence, is under threat of takeover by one of the large chain brands. I think it’s safe to say that a national chain is not going to go along with naked events!
If you are an environmental concerned exhibitionist you really need to give the World Naked Bike Ride a try. It takes place in an ever-growing list of cities, so there’s a good chance that there will one near you in 2019.
There seems to be a growing proportion of people out there who support environmental causes and aren’t shy about getting naked in public to show their support for them:
Of course, even if you are a little shy, it’s a whole lot easier to strip off in front of lots of other people if everyone else is going to be naked too. For some people, it’s an important enough cause to be worth overcoming their shyness or embarrassment to make a statement. For others, they love to be naked in public, rarely get the chance and this is a great opportunity for them. Others love to see lots of people naked up close and are confident enough to get naked to achieve that.
Human psychology is a complex thing and people fall into all sorts of categories. The fact remains, if you want to a “justified” excuse to get naked with lots of other people in a place nudity usually would not be accepted, events such as Tiger Streak, Bear All for Polar Bears and World Naked Bike Ride are becoming more widespread and popular.
