The world is full of famous , naked people - but sometimes they get dressed too, for a cold wind, to make a film, to wage war, for a pop concert, to give an interview, to go to work, for example. The people listed below are not necessarily nudists, they are however known to be naked on a reasonably regular basis. Some of them may even be nudists too, but these two ideas are not necessarily related . You should know some of them, and if they think nudity is ok, why don't you? Look down the list - some of the names may surprise and even inspire you. It is clear that there are many more people, than we know about, who engage in active, but private, nudism where they feel no-one should be allowed to find out about it, because they feel this may be detrimental in some way to their social standing, or career, or that people will infer something else from the state of nudity. One day people in the public eye may, (in the same way as homosexuals were at the end of the twentieth century), be outed for being nudists, naked enthusiasts, or even nacktivists. Perhaps then this list will grow so long it won't be worth keeping track of. In the meantime I welcome further submissions in similar vein.
