If we don’t educate society about harmless non-sexual nudity, who do you think will?

Here’s an article from a leading UK newspaper: the subtitle is “The group of University of Bristol students stripped off to raise money for charity” while The Sun’s headline of course reads: “Saucy students strip off for Bristol University naked Christmas calendar”.

A week at a naturist camping resort in Croatia – sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? Well, very nearly, however, and in the words of Robin Williams’ indefatigable Genie: “there are a couple of quid pro quos…”. Let’s start with the positive.

Naked European Walking Tour 2015 – Wednesday
