UK's first ever naked shopping event held

The UK's first ever naked shopping event has been held in Central London.

There was a poor turnout for the event with only about 15 naturists turning up at the Plaza shopping centre in Oxford Street.

Oona Graham-Taylor, spokeswoman for the Plaza centre, blamed the disappointing turnout of naturists on the Euro 2004 football championships.

She said the centre would "possibly" consider holding another naked evening, says BBC News Online.

"We were actually hoping for more but it is the first event we have run and the football cut numbers down", she said.

Naturists were invited to register as naked shoppers before being allowed entry on the night. Many of the centre's shops and restaurants also offered discounts to the nude bargain hunters.

Staff remained fully clothed during the event.

Nick Mayhew, co-author of naturists' guidebook Bare Beaches, was on hand to sign copies of his book.

Oregon nudists win increased exposure

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Squaw Mountain Family Nudist Club member Phil Moriarty sums up his attraction to nudism in three words: "I hate clothes."

Moriarty's simple philosophy is more illuminating than it might seem. It points to the essential component of a lifestyle far removed from the preconceptions of nudist organizations that have existed in the past. As the number of nudists in Oregon grows, the stereotypes are crumbling and a growing number of people are shedding more than their inhibitions.

As of today, there are eight clubs in Oregon officially affiliated with the American Association for Nude Recreation, the largest nudist organization in the United States. AANR represents 240 clubs and nearly 50,000 individual members.

The organization's name alone proves an increasing acceptance of nudist lifestyle. Until recently, the AANR was known as the American Sunbather Association, a much more ambiguous title that afforded its members a little secrecy in their nudist practices. But a more vocal defense of the lifestyle has perhaps resulted in less reason to hide. The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
