that's the best punishment you could come up with? i think meuon needs to contribute a "punishment for todd" link, or something. (i'd ask another of the regulars, but they've clearly all gone walkabout, so...)

If you're looking for some serious smackdown, it'd be hard to offer punishment more severe than the coolest picture ever over on Pete's blog.

Argh! My eyes!

I've got new stuff up on my front page, too.

It's a punishment link. it's supposed to anoy you into posting ergo today's Flutterby traffic. My ploy is to seed the punishment links with really cool links so everyone will continue to follow the links. Muhahahahaha...Pete that picture is pretty darn evil. I may have to print a hardcopy and use it instead of verbal abuse. I want that report by 4 or I'm bring out the picture

Oh, there's more where that came from...

I think maybe we could have come up with a tougher-to-swallow link....see "TheReckoning.jpg"

PJ; Am I missing something? I don't think that's a particularly bad/damning picture of the guy. Personally, I'd love to see more women posting nudie pics of their partners (and more 'male review' strip clubs... and... )

Saw a great commercial last night: All the women in the office shoved various things into the copiers and, called the company to complain that it was jammed, then gathered around for the arrival of the cute repairman. That's how we restore the balance, IMO :-)

Yes, Shawn, I'm amazed by the number of people that say they are confused. I really don't care what anyone thinks of the photograph, it is payment-in-kind for having MY likeness (in similar garb - nuthin') posted on the net without my permission. So if you like it, repost the link (which is really from www.vbloke.com). If you didn't like it, repost the link. Fair's fair. I expected to get bad-mouthed over this, by the way. You've surprised me.

Oh, sorry I didn't realize this was directly personal. I get it now. Personally, I think none of us should be as uptight about our nekkidness as we are in our society (forget "casual days" at work - I'm voting for "no clothing days"). But that said, I also think that if somebody doesn't want some picture/work of theirs distributed then it shouldn't be.

And I'm also 110% for equality - of the 120% kind. If guys are posting pics of their [ex-]girlfriends, then those women should absolutely be posting pics of them in return. It's all part of my master plan for More World Nudity ;-)

Well now, Shawn --
Personally, I think none of us should be as uptight about our nekkidness as we are in our society...
It's all part of my master plan for More World Nudity...
-- I hadn't known we shared this sentiment. :-) May I recommend the Naturist Society as a first contact point? ("In a recent Roper poll...80% of respondents agreed that people who enjoy nude sunbathing should be able to do so without interference from officials as long as they do so at a beach that is accepted for that purpose." At least that's a start...) Then there are events like Bare to Breakers (my report from this year is short but readable, and here's a photoessay on this year's soggy wet run). And I recommend nude hiking as a good start: most of the people you pass in national parks are surprised, but open-minded about it. (And the photography that can result: there is nothing as spectacular!) It'll take some time before Americans are more used to nudity, but with time and the right approach (e.g. those of us who are parents can demonstrate a healthy body consciousness and comfort, modeling and encouraging a more accepting attitude in our kids), we may be able to at least rise to the European level of nonchalance about nudity. Will we be able to go to the office "clothed with the sun"? Not likely. But we can surely improve attitudes and move closer to the time when nudity is just No Big Deal.

Thanks Diane (I didn't know about you either ;-). I do keep half an eye on the naturist/nudist community but I still haven't worked up the gumption to attend social events and gatherings in general in any state of [un]dress. I'm a hard-core cave troll type geek (translation: I don't leave the house much except to go to work - when I have a job, that is). Problem is that I'm also a closet drama queen, so there's a lot of internal conflict going on here. I'm working on it but it's slow going. I keep telling myself all it'll take is to make those first few relationships to start the ball rolling....

And then there's the fact that I feel pretty much the same way about sex, which I find doesn't sit well with many of the "official" nudist/naturist bent (some of whom can be quite rabidly conservative and opressive about sexual issues).

holy crap, i didn't mean to turn all that loose....in the meantime, the site with the nude pic went down...

PJ, that's the great thing about Flutterby, we've got wonderfully rambling threads that always seem to go somewhere cool. And completely unexpected.

Shawn, I know how you feel. I've run into some of the organized nudist groups that seem super-conservative. But when I get various flyers for "nudist videos" in the mail at home, some of which seem very pedophilia oriented, I can understand some of the backlash. Just not into it myself. As for being naked in social situations, it's worth dealing with that super-conservative attitude to see how dynamics change when everyone's naked. I highly recommend it.

Well, as long as I've gotten you onto nudity(I was only trying to increase the audience for a payback photo), check this link. It will help out those of you who want to be nekkid wherever/whenever possible. It's safe, I personally guarantee...

I can personally vouch for the Frying Food entry. But I think going a la Emperor [with his new clothes] to the PTA meeting would be a hoot.

#Comment made: 2002-07-04 05:39:37+00 by: Diane Reese

Well Shawn, we're together on this one. Stop on by sometime and we'll set up the BBQ and fire up the hot tub. As for the "Don't" list, I have either done, or have friends who have done, all of the following in the nude. The best reasons for clothing are safety and warmth, and most of the "Don't" list features things that would be eminently unsafe if tried unclothed. Some I wouldn't try even with clothes on (e.g. cleaning up hazardous waste).

BBQ sizzling meat (just use care), Baseball (just don't slide), Break dance, Chain Sawing, Chop firewood, Drive during rush hour (best in a tall car, if you're female), Drivethrough Fast Food (ditto), Fry bacon (with care and a splatter shield), Frying Food (ditto), Make a snow angel (best when there's a hot tub or sauna to pop into afterwards), Shovel snow, Sit on hot vinyl car seats (not recommended, but I've done it), Slide down a hot slide (ditto: you stick to it, ouch), Snowball Fights (these are really FUN in the nude!!), Trim the hedges, Work around a grill.

Why just this morning I was making sausage and frying polenta nude. I'm as much of a fan of nudity as anyone, but an apron is a good idea.

#Comment made: 2002-07-04 23:20:09+00 by: PJ

I must live in a backward community. You never know. I personally wish, fewer men would allow themselves to be seen in SHORTS! At least, I guess, if they were nude, the Overhanging Fat Belly and knobby knees wouldn't be so obvious. This post just has not brought the responses I expected, at all....which is fine!

#Comment made: 2002-07-05 02:13:53+00 by: meuon

Dan.. an apron with a pocket (or two).. my biggest problem with being nude is the lack of pockets, so I settle for some wonderfully soft shorts with pockets. If we were marsupials... it'd be so much easier.
