The Naked Truth About Public Naked-ness

Good Morning Di,
(we are with Di this week and next while Grant takes a well deserved break)

As regular listeners will know Monday to Thursday I give my insights on various issues of national and community significance and on Fridays, well Fridays are fun and a chance to look at some unusual topics.

Today is one that most of us wouldn’t normally look at let along talk about.

This year only half a million Germans maintain the once strong German tradition of public nudism....that is: Getting their clothes off.  

In Germany, where nudism is reasonably well accepted, nudist friendly areas are becoming more restricted and numbers of nudists are getting a bit, well, skinny.

The representative community group “German Free Body Culture” says that they are worried about shrinkage, to be specific, their numbers are shrinking.

Although just a few years ago there were over three million Germans getting their gear off, today,  the German Free Body Culture group says Germans, particularly the young people, prefer to show off the latest fashions rather than venture into public with just their bare-essentials.

Yeah, sure!!!.....

..... Blame the falling popularity of nudism on people who prefer to wear clothes...

...Turn It Up

& a Quick P.S.

With all the latest medical research warn us that we do actually need some exposure to the sun for our health including to produce Vitamin D levels for our health perhaps that is another reasons.

And if the nudist movement in Germany isn’t so concerned about their health then perhaps it might be that young people might be turned off the nudist movement because courts tend to fine those who a caught nude on bikes, horse riding or hiking.....yeah right blame it on fashion and riding horses and bike riding.....hardly comfortable at the best of times....

I can see it now German nakid tourism seeks creative director to pad copy and generally ….oh you can figure the rest out........



This week's hottest topic in Australia is the climate change....

National Press Club home page

National Press Club Climate Debate, Climate Change, The Sky is or is not falling.

below is an extractfrom The National Press Club's summary of who the two speakers were at yesterday's press club debate on climate change.

I do find it interesting that no Australian stood up to be the against carbon tax side, but well done to Lord Monkton for a very well articulated and entertaining approach.
