Nude runs

I'm fascinated by nude runs, nude cycling events and so on. It is quite obvious that lots of people want to be naked in public, but needs such an event to take the leap. It would be interesting to know how many people who have first been naked in such events, have thereafter been naked in public in other settings.

Or is it the other way round? Maybe the people who take part in nude runs have been secretly being nude in deserted places, and finally had the courage to be naked with lots of people around?

It is also interesting to see the amount of publicity such nude runs get. Is this a sign that there are lots of voyeurs in journalism? :-)

Sadly, I didn't go to Roskilde this year, so I could not take part in the nude run (or see the participants). So I guess I'll have to have my own nude run somewhere...

(Sorry for not blogging lately, by the way - I've been busy being naked on the beaches of Oslo in the warm weather we've had...)

Wish you had gone to Roskilde. With so many photos of it, you'd surely have been captured in one of them (smile). I've really longed to participate in such an event, such as WNBR. Too bad, it's never been able to get off the ground here in Tokyo - although I've tried.

Not much nude running here in New Zealand either, but we do do annual nude rugby in the middle of winter: http://uroskin.blogspot.com/2009/06/that-time-of-year-nude-rugby-again.html
