Topless Revolution

An Auckland woman says it is about time women felt comfortable enough with their bodies to go topless on public beaches, launching a Facebook facampaign to encourage women to bare their breasts.

Shannon Claire says male toplessness being okay, but female toplessness not, is a double standard.

Ms Claire says it’s time for us to follow European beaches into the light.

The 31-year-old has been sunbathing topless since she was 14-years-old. She says she is totally comfortable with her body, but this summer, Ms Claire has been copping flak from others who are not.

Instead of covering up, she has decided to take a stand, by starting a campaign for women to join her topless revolution.

Get Naked: It’s Good for Your Brain

Okay, buck naked? I am. Fun. Toes wiggle in the shag carpet. Butt cheeks stick to the chair. Nipples goose-bump. We’re natural... nudists! Our huge organs (skin) tingle with sensual data that’s zipped to our thrilled brains. We feel... wild, healthy, alert, spunky. Alive.

Clothing is crushing us! Trapped in tomb-like textiles, we exile our flesh from experiencing the environment. We atrophy the majority of our epidermis. If you put a plaster cast on a broken arm, the skin starves for Vitamin D; muscles weaken due to strangled range of motion; nerve synapses depress to a whimper of their former joy. Twenty-first century hominids shroud the entire skin palette, obliterating symbiosis with the planet except via face, neck and hands.

Nudists Endorse Controversial Full Body Scanners (PHOTO)

While privacy advocates have denounced the full body scanners for generating images so graphic they are tantamount to "virtual strip-searching," the American Association for Nude Recreation, the largest group representing nudists in the U.S. and Canada, have endorsed the controversial new security technology.

"Airport Scanning that 'Takes It Off' is Good for America," the AANR wrote in a post on its website, officially expressing their support for full body scanners.

The press release issued by the AANR included the following explanation for their endorsement:

"Put this issue in its proper perspective," recommends AANR Executive Director Erich Schuttauf. "A trained security professional in a remote monitoring station takes a few seconds discreetly screening passengers to be sure they're only bringing what nature gave them aboard. In exchange for safer skies, AANR believes it's completely worth it. But you don't have to be a nudist to agree these measures are based on common sense."

Adds Schuttauf, "Polls regularly show that about one in five North Americans have skinny-dipped in mixed company already. So if travelers just think of the screen as a virtual skinny-dip, something regarded as American as apple pie since before Norman Rockwell, everyone wins in the name of better air travel security. And as an added bonus, you can add the experience to your 'bucket list' as a virtual dipping of one's toe into taking a Nakation - that's a nudist vacation!"

Tickets sold out for all-nude, outdoor Florida beach party

(NBC) –  Some people might say the two biggest inconveniences on New Year's Eve is figuring out your wardrobe and how to get home.

Well, Haulover Beach is having its Nude Year's Eve bash this year so you won't have to worry about any of that.

What better way to ring in the New Year than to ditch the threads and go au natural?

"You were born naked and so why not," one beachcomber said.

Granted, this year's Nude Year's Eve bash on Haulover Beach may be a bit toned down because of the chill in the air.

When asked if he would be open to it if it weren't so cold, a beachcomber said, "No, I have nothing to show, a lack of pride."

Some have other plans for New Year's Eve.

"We're going to see Fish at the American Airlines Arena," one beachcomber said.

James Carlson and Shamra Zorns will be fully clothed even though they are nudists themselves.

"We live nude every day so it's not a big deal," Shamra said.
