‘Landlady’ Pam Fraser’s regulars are staving off the loneliness of isolation by getting together for drinks in the buff… and it’s all completely legal
Every Friday, Pam Fraser meets up with over 100 people to drink and gossip in the pub she runs. But she doesn’t need to worry about dressing up for her “outing” – everyone there is in the nude.
Fortunately, lockdown “landlady” Pam isn’t breaking government rules, as it’s a virtual pub she organises via video call – but she admits it can get rowdy.
Naturist Pam, 28, is single and lives with her mum and two brothers in Preston. She says, “The customers at my pub are all ages and come from all sorts of professions – but the one thing we have in common is we like getting naked as often as possible. I run events for the British Naturism Society, so I know a lot of the regulars. But we’ve been advertising, too, and have had a few new faces join us.
“We get together a few nights a week. I ‘open up’ at 8pm and we have a good natter and a drink. Friday is the big night. There is a quiz on earlier in the night so everyone is pretty tipsy by the time they get to the pub.
“As ‘landlady’, I make sure I chat to everyone and ensure people are okay. It’s great fun, and there is no closing time. People can pop in for a quick pint to say hello, or stay as long as they want. We’ve noticed some new people joining in who feel more comfortable being naked in their own home than coming to an organised event – this way, if they feel a bit self-conscious to start with, they can choose to just show their head and shoulders.
“Obviously you see people fully naked when they stand up to get another drink or pop to the toilet, but it’s not seedy. We’re just sociable people who like to get together and be naked!”
