Get Naked or Keep Your Shirt On?

Well we’re all supposed to be Europeans now, so why is there such an intolerance here of naked flesh when over in the German city of Munich they have given people the go-ahead to get naked in public. Officials have declared six designated areas where naturists are welcome to strip off and show their bums and other bits without risking arrest. But while these nudist spots offer some privacy, they are not fenced off or hidden away. Instead they are in parks and one is only 10 minutes away from the city’s main square and a stream popular with tourists. The city, the third largest in Germany, brought in the “urban naked zones” after previous laws on nude sunbathing expired in Bavaria during the autumn.

Meanwhile in Southend, baring your beer belly is off the menu this summer, as visitors to the Adventure Island funfair are being told to please keep their clothes on. The park’s new ‘Wear Your Shirt’ rule will be enforced no matter how high the temperatures rise, and has been inspired by similar dress codes used in U.S. theme parks which urge men to stay covered up in a bid to maintain family-friendly standards. A spokesman for the park said: ‘We don’t have a strict dress code as such, but would like our male customers to show some decorum.

Perhaps they need reminding that in 2010, more than 100 people stripped off their clothing and went for a roller coaster ride at Adventure Island to raise money for a local hospital while setting a world record.  The roller coaster ran three times to Ensure all of the nude people had a ride. The event raised more than £ 22,000 for Southend Hospital.
