At sunrise on Sunday, June 2, 2019, 125 people posed nude in front of Facebook and Instagram’s New York City headquarters at Astor Place to challenge social media censorship. In collaboration with the National Coalition Against Censorship, artist Spencer Tunick created a photographic artwork as part of their #WeTheNipple campaign.

Get buff in the buff this new year.
On Jan. 5 at 6 p.m., the fitness studio will have its first nude personal training session. The studio initially plans to host three sessions a week: one mixed, one for men, and one for women.
Located in SoHo (42 Wooster St, New York, N.Y., 10012), the class will be a “total body workout that uses your body weight as resistance to work the glute, butt, legs and core — making you look and feel good naked,” the company said in a press release. New year, nude you, they say.
Hanson studio founder Harry Hanson, fitness guru, said in the release, “Our approach makes sure our members get and stay in the absolute best shape, and our new naked personal fitness sessions are no exception. This new development brings with it a range of fitness and health benefits and allows our members to have a little cheeky fun in the process!”
While naked yoga has become an increasingly trendy and popular exercise, few places do full-body workouts in the nude. NKD Training in the UK has naked gym training, but it’s for men only.
Hanson Fitness says that working out nude keeps you cooler, releases endorphins, increases body awareness and gives you unrestricted movement. Plus: less laundry!
If guests are uncomfortable training in the complete nude, nude-colored underwear is permitted. Contact the studio to book a spot, find out about private sessions and inquire about costs.
If naked yoga is more your speed, head to Bold and Naked Yoga Studio in Midtown West, which has naked and clothed yoga classes, private sessions and other training programs.
A NUDE model claims she was flung in jail after she was caught posing for a secret photoshoot inside one of Egypt’s ancient temples.
Marisa Papen, who describes herself as a “free-spirited and wild hearted expressionist”, traveled with photographer Jesse Walker to Egypt for a spectacular photoshoot inside and outside some of the country’s most famous landmarks.
In a blog post reported by various media outlets over the weekend she claimed she was put in jail an hauled before a court as a result of her nude al fresco outing.
However the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities has disputed how accurate the images are suggesting they may have been faked or taken some time ago, reports Gulf News.
The Belgian model said: “The last two years I have walked wild and free in at least 50 countries. Rarely do I end up in precarious situations. Until April this year, in Egypt.”
Marisa, from the Flanders region of Belgium, met up in Cairo with photographer Walker who flew in from Australia to do the shoot.
And even though the duo said they were aware of the cultural, political and religious differences between Egypt and the West, the adventure ended differently than they both expected.During a first photoshoot near the famous pyramids of Giza, the two got into trouble.
They reportedly bribed a security guard to start the photoshoot when suddenly two young men showed up.
Papen said: “I was suddenly completely awake, like a cold shower at 5am in the morning.
Okay lets be honest here. While i admire her work and her passion, she obviously broke the law and did something very stupid. Like going into a Muslim country and doing a nude photoshoot!
According to the Daily Star Online, the brazen lady was taking part in a social experiment and was fined £3,000 for public indecency.
The Star also reports that one of the men put his arm around the woman who brushed off his creepy advances.
The provocative female reportedly addressed the group of men saying: “It’s a social experiment, to show that we’re all good people.
“You are good, aren’t you, boys?”
Okay…not exactly the way to promote Naturism. More like a good way to promote being arrested. Meanwhile in other news a couple in the same area started having full on sex in the public view and no one gave a damn. Yeah I ain’t moving to Italy any time soon.
There are times when modern art and Nudity do not mix. This is one of those times. I warn you that this shit is disturbing and cringey.
This is a few videos from some event called Atlanta EKE in 2010. It was some kind of performance art. And when i say some kind, yeah some kind is about as best as i can describe. I’ve seen 4 yr olds do better in a Christmas play.
There’s more. This is not art. Its some form of twisted exhibitionism posing as art.
I wonder how much people paid to have there eyes burned out by the bad “art”.
You know what. I would love to protest this as a Naturist. But i think this so called art destroys itself so there’s no need.
And finally i will conclude by saying this. I feel sorry for the women who participated in this garbage because they will forever be labelled as morons who did weird shit naked on stage. And finally, but most of all i feel bad for the parts who paid out tens of thousands of dollars a year for some fancy college, only for their daughters to end up like basically doing a glorified strip tease in front of a few hundred people.
The parents could have just booted them out when they were 18 and got the same damn thing and saved a lot of money.
A person once said a picture is worth a thousand words. And he was right, it is. But this picture is supposed to help support the argument for women being topless in public in Sweden. This is the same nation that fucking bends over backwards to accommodate the Muslim refugees that are swarming the country. And with the number of rapes, and murders, tripling in the country due to Muslim refugees, why in God’s Holy Name would you want to push for topless equality at a time like this? Do you want to give the Muslim rapefugees a easier way to target who they can rape? Priorities here people of Sweden. Get them, and then get them in order.
Now the next thing i have to say about this picture is how off putting the two people in the picture. The both of them look very androgynous and like hipsters. Why not use two older people like a hairy chested male and a average looking female? Why does the picture use two young and somewhat ugly looking, androgynous hipsters. When i first saw this picture i looked at the male and my first thought was, “Why do they have a flat chested woman and not so flat chested woman in this picture? It makes no sense.” In other words the androgyny of the male completely throws the picture off and obscures the message. Sadly enough the Northern Europeans tendency to want to be SJW and PC destroys their own message in this case.
And so to get to the final point about this one must remember that the Topless movement does not support naturism . It is a feminist movement that only supports WOMEN BEING ALLOWED BY LAW TO BE TOPLESS IN PUBLIC THE SAME AS MEN. While we as naturist can support the Topless movement, do not expect the same Topless movement to come to our aid. Remember most of the Topless movement is populated by young feminist, liberal types who flit from one social justice topic to the next with no care for the wreckage they leave behind and many of them are so body shy they’d never go totally nude in public, let alone at a nudist resort or beach. So i say why bother supporting them unless it truly benefits us. These same women would be the first to protest public nudity on the basis that it may trigger a transsexual or some body shy person. After all these are the same people who think a naked, flaccid penis is some form psychological and physical aggression. So these people will never be okay with the law allowing men to walk around naked because penises trigger them. But some of them may be okay with women walking around nude because female body privilege and “muh patriarchy oppression” and all.
Well thats my two cents on this topic.
Sand Volleyball Courts, Peter’s Point, Rock Creek Park and Potomac Parkway, Washington D.C. May 2016. One of the more common “criticisms” of my walks through urban places is that I shouldn’t walk bare-chested where men don’t appear bare-chested. Aside from the obvious fallacies in that argument, I offer this photograph, taken less than a mile from my M Street walk, right in the heart of the city. Male bare-chestedness has become so normalized we don’t really see it anymore.
Right up front, the effects of the naturist male voice in the topfreedom conversation is a delicate subject for me.
Delicate because I personally appreciate the backing of naturists who support topfreedom for authentic reasons, (body positivity, gender equality, etc,) but I also hear a chord of inauthenticity from some who identify as male naturists.
I haven’t done the exact figuring, but I would guess that a majority percentage of my…
