      Another naked mass outdoor run event, again showing the gender imbalance most of these suffer from. We need a campaign for nude equality.

      A vicious circle – loads of men go because “yay they’ll be loads of naked women”; women stay away because “there’ll be loads of lecherous blokes there” (yes I’m probably generalising!)

      I don’t know how we fix this?

      My research shows that just as many women as men like to be naked in front of other people. There’s some evidence that it’s actually a greater interest in women than men. When men contact me about taking part in the experiments, they almost always want to know more, discuss cost, etc. There’s rarely doubt in their minds as to whether they are prepared to take part. When women contact me, it quickly becomes obvious that they are not just finding out more, they are mostly trying to justify it to themselves, to see if it is something they could do.

      I probably get around 4x as many men as women contact me. Of those, about 90% want to take part, but with the women, it’s closer to 20% want to go ahead with it, but less than half of those actually do anything. Maybe it’s my toxic personality, but I don’t think so.

      Maybe having a female contact person would help (particularly one who had participated in a past experiment)?

       

      Sorry Ed – I had always assumed you were a fella!!

      We’ve had two or three female contact people over the years but, after a few months or a year or so, they always get disillusioned by the lack of people who are serious, the massive gender imbalance and the men pretending to be women (that STILL happens).

       

      lol – I am male BTW.

      Now that some women have participated, perhaps ask them?

      I have. Interest levels there are pretty close to zero. 🙁

      Back to the original post, it’s a fantastic event I’ve never heard of. Definitely adding this to my nude wishlist for the future ! Thanks for sharing.

        I like “nude wishlist”, I hope I can borrow it to use for my list of things to do nude. When I was younger I wanted to do a parachute jump, as I got older I lost interest in that and hadn’t really considered doing it nude. A few years ago we were having a conversation at a nude beach about what we’d all like to do nude that we hadn’t yet done naked. A nude parachute jump was what we decided we’d like to do as a group of friends. I loved the idea that we were going to land somewhere, that we probably wouldn’t have much control over, without any clothing. When it was clarified in the UK that it is OK to be nude in public I thought we might stand a better chance of doing it, as the more cautious people in the group couldn’t say we might be arrested any more. So far there is no progress!

      Watching the videos reminds me so much as to why I love being a nudist who loves seeing other nude people, its far more interesting than watching clothed runners!
