Top 10 naked hotels in the world

By Lu Na (China.org.cn)

Famous German travel website Trivago.com recently published its top 10 most welcoming "naked hotels" as favored by travelers.

Germany's FKK (Freikörperkultur or "free body culture") movement is a cultural phenomenon across Europe, proposing people spend their days naked and in harmony with nature. It goes without saying that most of the hotels are located in Europe.

Most of the hotels allow their guests to remain in the nude when sitting in their restaurants, bars, gyms and hot springs. However, some hotels only allow their customers to be naked in the hot spring area.

Take a look at the following 10 unique hotels and resorts:

Stand Up For Women's Rights: Show Us Your Boobs

If you really gave two nipples about women's equality, then you'd take off your shirt already.

In conjunction with Women's Equality Day, women and fans of women will descend on Dolores park sans shirts on Sunday at noon for Go Topless Day, because if men can walk around topless, then damn it women can, too. (Note to prolific nudists: This bare-chested bash is permitted).

But this isn't totally about getting rid of those bikini top tan lines -- it's about getting rid of inequality.

Go Topless Day always falls on the Sunday closest to Women's Equality Day, which is Aug 26. It was that day in 1920 that women (aka people with boobs) earned their right to vote on the basis of Gender Equality. In 1971, the U.S Congress declared Aug. 26 Women's Equality Day, and the president is summoned to celebrate this day each year.

Gaga embraces being naked



Lady Gaga was comfortable shedding her clothes from a young age.

The singer often turns heads for her outrageous costumes and earlier this month featured in a video for performance artist Marina Abramovińá in which she walks around nude.

The star, real name Stefani Germanotta, admits she was never a modest child and her mother often went to great lengths to control her extrovert daughter around company.

"I definitely walked around naked a lot as a kid," Gaga revealed on Sirius XM's The Morning Mash Up.

"And my mom used to joke with me because I would always try to freak the babysitter out and... hide behind the couch and rip all my clothes off and run around and singing The Little Mermaid or whatever."

The Applause singer is now finding great purpose in feeling free to be in the buff.

She's fascinated by how well she can express a new character by using little more than her nude body.

"And now really what it's more about is I find it very interesting to be able to transform as much as possible with very little makeup and nude," Gaga explained.

Shirtless Goes the City

California strikes. Manhattan is becoming Malibu. Once, in the long-gone “Mad Men” days, it was considered de rigueur for New Yorkers to wear a hat and gloves in town. Now dress codes have devolved to the point where folks wear fleecy slippers on the subway, flip-flops to the ballet, running tights for every occasion, repurposed pajamas as daywear and, recently, very little at all.

We are referring here to a curious trend among men in the city to go walking about without shirts.

Note, for instance, recent tabloid pictures showing Orlando Bloom strolling through TriBeCa with his dog on a leash and son in a stroller. The British actor was dressed in shower shoes, a baseball cap and cargo shorts slung low enough to brand-check his red briefs and to see a solar tattoo inked south of his navel. And that was about all.

Sure it was hot. Temperatures had been hovering in the 90s for seven days running. Furnace blasts radiated off sidewalks. To stand on a subway platform felt like getting too close to a Weber grill.

Naked above the waist, Mr. Bloom was doing what a sensible person might to stay cool, if that person lived on the Pacific Coast Highway and was headed to Malibu Country Mart for an iced cappuccino.
