Mary Beard to present new show about history of nudity

Historian and broadcaster Mary Beard is hoping to challenge attitudes with a new factual series about nudity.

BBC Two have commissioned the University of Cambridge classics professor to present a two-part series that’s been described as a “singular exploration of the role of nakedness” in society.

In The Nude Uncovered, Beard will follow the history of naked human bodies in art and their impact on society’s idea of beauty and gender politics.

The 2019 show was announced during the Edinburgh television festival, where executives from BBC Two explained that “Mary will take in a huge range of images; reinterpreting star artworks like Manet’s Olympia and Michelangelo’s David while shining a light on the hidden corners of image making.” The channel further promised that the programme would challenge attitudes to nudity and nakedness.

Fui a la primera discoteca nudista de París
Recomiendo a todo el mundo que vaya desnudo a una discoteca, siempre y cuando el resto de gente también vaya desnuda, claro.

Tras varios años intentando averiguar dónde encajo yo en el mundo queer, parece que por fin he empezado a reafirmar mi relación con mi cuerpo, mi género y mi sexualidad. Para poner a prueba mi nivel de autoconfianza, el siguiente paso no podía ser otro que ir en pelotas a una discoteca llena de desconocidos también en pelotas.

Lucie Etchebers pour Vice

A principios de este mes se organizó en Francia la primera noche de juerga nudista en Point Ephémère, un centro de usos múltiples de París. El evento se llamaba 222-32, que es el código que utiliza la justicia francesa para tipificar el delito de exhibicionismo público. El concepto me parecía intrigante no solo por el elemento de la desnudez colectiva.

Sentía curiosidad por ver qué ocurría con las normas sociales en un espacio con personas desnudas y bebiendo. Los organizadores ya anunciaban que estaba “estrictamente prohibido cualquier comportamiento de naturaleza sexual”. ¿Serviría esa medida para hacer que la gente se sintiera más liberada o provocaría que nos cohibiéramos más de lo normal?

Emma Dante: Bestias de escena, una mirada al mundo

Según comenta Emma Dante en su website: Bestias de escena, una mirada al mundo (Bestie di scena) llegó a su verdadero significado en el momento en que renuncié al tema que quería tratar originalmente. En un inicio, quería contar el trabajo del actor, su cansancio, su necesidad, su abandono total llegando a la pérdida de la vergüenza y, finalmente, me encontré delante de una pequeña comunidad de seres primitivos, desorientados, frágiles, un grupo de idiotas que como gesto extremo ofrecen sus ropas sudorosas al espectador, renunciando a todo lo demás.

Todo este proceso ha comenzado desde esa renuncia, creándose una extraña atmósfera que no nos ha abandonado y que ha hecho que el espectáculo se genere solo. En Bestias de escena hay una comunidad que huye, expulsada del paraíso al igual que Adán y Eva, llegando a un lugar del pecado, el mundo terrenal, lleno de trampas y tentaciones. Se engañan a sí mismos para vivir, encontrando en ese escenario todo lo que necesitan: el odio, el amor, el camino, el miedo, el mar, el naufragio, la zanja, la tumba donde llorar a los muertos, los restos de una catástrofe… Continued…Read full original article…

Nude gallery visit an ‘incredible success’
Waiting list of 30,000 for Paris event which follows opening of naturist zone in park and naturist restaurant

Naturists have hailed their first nudist visit to a Paris art gallery as an “incredible success” with a waiting list of 30,000 but only 161 visitors allowed in.

Numbers were kept strictly limited for the closed-doors event at the Palais de Tokyo Centre d’Art Contemporain, which was held before normal opening hours when ‘textiles’ arrived.

Naturists from as far as the US arrived fully-clothed then undressed in a side room before viewing the Discorde, fille de la nuit exhibition. Guided groups of six were led by uniformed gallery staff to see works by such as Kader Attia, Neil Beloufa and Jean-Jacques Lebel.

Later, they had a celebratory drink, naked, on the roof of the gallery that looks over to the Eiffel Tower.

The Association des Naturistes de Paris hailed the visit as an “incredible moment, what a success!”

It added: “Mentalities are changing and naturism is becoming normal. For this visit, we had many young people; delighted women and men.” Continued…Read full original article…

Uncensored nude dating show causes a stir after hitting Kiwi screens

A reality TV dating show with full-frontal nudity has proven to be a turn off for some Kiwi viewers.

TVNZ confirmed the broadcaster has received complaints about UK series Naked Attraction, which sees potential love interests introduced by gradually stripping bare in completely uncensored footage.

Season one of the show has joined TVNZ 2’s Friday night line-up, with the first episode featuring an average of five penises and two vaginas every minute, according to the Daily Mail.

A TVNZ spokeswoman said the show was unlike anything screened on TVNZ 2 before.

Someone tried to sell Sia’s nudes, Sia leaks them herself
The singer posted the image on Twitter with the caption ‘Everyday is Christmas!’

Sia has one-upped a website selling her creepy, long distance lens nudes by posting them herself on Twitter. The photo, which was shot without her consent or knowledge, was for sale on a website charging to unpixelate the image. The watermark for paparazzi agency FameFlyNet is visible on the image.

Not wanting to let anyone make money off non-consensual images of her nude body, Sia, famously protective of her image and privacy, posted the image herself on Twitter with the caption: “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” Continued…Read full original article…

Taking time off….
What to do and where to go during the next 10 days is the question we now are asking ourselves. Now that we’ve finally got time away from work together,we want to go somewhere interesting and enlightening and at the same time try not to waste it by just sitting around.

Going to the club is kind of out of the question now the weather has turned colder although we could use the sauna. We have stayed before in November but most of the time it’s not really conducive to staying overnight in poor weather let alone going clothes free.

We could go walking along the coast on the nicer days maybe or even go and visit gardens near us providing of course they’re still open.

Essex on the south eastern side of England is one of the driest counties with a choice of wonderful gardens to visit. It is home to one of the RHS gardens – Hyde Hall which can be visited any time of year. There are also gardens close to Colchester, Chelmsford and Braintree.

Some of theses gardens history are fascinating too, Beth Chattos garden for example was created on a very difficult site and is a great example of what can be done with determination. Continued…Read full original article…

Sarah Silverman Explains the Full-Frontal Nudity ‘I Love You, America’
The comedian reveals why she had two audience members sit naked during the premiere episode of her Hulu variety show.

The debut episode of Sarah Silverman’s brand new Hulu variety show I Love You, America features some startling full-frontal nudity. The moment comes during the comedian’s opening monologue, in which she tells the crowd that instead of picturing the audience naked, she’d prefer to see some real-life nudity.

Erin Simkin

The camera quickly turns to two of the show’s attendees, Scott and Stella, both seated in their chairs completely naked, prompting a mix of gasps and giggles from the rest of the crowd. With a grin on her face, Silverman greets Scott and instructs the cameraman to pan down to his “pubes,” as she puts it. “Great penis, Scott,” she explains, before turning her attention to Stella and her privates.

The uncomfortable bit, it turns out, was developed early on in the writers room. “When someone pitched the picture-the-audience-naked concept, I went, ‘Ugh, that’s so trite. You thought of that because you’ve seen it before on television,'” Silverman explained to The Hollywood Reporter after the taping. “So we just leaned into that trope and made it into something totally, in my opinion, original.” And after all, this is a streaming service, not some broadcast network with strict standards and practices limits. “I wanted to take advantage of the fact that we are on a network where we can see nudity, clinical nudity.” Continued…Read full original article…

Bloot op tv is gewoon, en toch is de Nederlandse tv preutser geworden
Op 9 oktober 1967 was voor het eerst een blote vrouw te zien op tv. Twee borsten kwamen zomaar de huiskamers binnen. Vele primeurs volgden, en vijftig jaar later kijkt niemand op of om wanneer een naakt lijf in beeld verschijnt. En toch is de Nederlandse televisie preutser geworden.

Het eerste naakt

Verscholen achter een opengeslagen krant verschijnt een vrouw in beeld. ‘Phil Bloom’, spellen de letters op het scherm haar naam. Twee over elkaar geslagen blote benen piepen onder het papier uit, erboven beweegt een paar zwaar opgemaakte ogen over een nieuwsbericht.

'Adam zoekt Eva Vips', uitgezonden in 2017.RTL
‘Adam zoekt Eva Vips’, uitgezonden in 2017.

“De VPRO zet schaar in naakt van Phil”, klinkt de stem van de vrouw. “Fotomodel Phil Bloom komt 9 oktober niet naakt op de televisieschermen.” Nadat beelden uit de tweede aflevering van het tv-programma ‘Hoepla!’ zijn uitgelekt, waarop de kunstenares in evakostuum reacties op aflevering één voorleest uit Trouw, hebben de omroepbonzen de uitzending volgens het artikel verboden.

Toch is Bloom die negende oktober 1967 in menig huiskamer te zien. Met een stalen gezicht leest ze het bericht uit. Dan vouwt ze de krant dicht, waarmee alsnog een stel blote borsten en dijen achter het papier vandaan komen: een wereldwijde primeur voor de televisie. Continued…Read full original article…

“I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That’s natural & that’s human. You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don’t see what everyone else sees. Know that it’s completely normal to feel insecure and it’s accepted.” Cont…Read full original article…

Diez días desnudos en A-3
La cadena privada apuesta como gran su ‘show’ de la temporada por el éxito internacional ‘El contenedor’

Once personas de cuatro hogares españoles vivirán durante diez días despojados de todas sus pertenencias, incluida la ropa, mientras mantienen sus rutinas diarias como ir al trabajo, a clase y al gimnasio. Este es el sorprendente planteamiento de ‘El contenedor’, nueva vuelta de tuerca al género del ‘reality show’ que, tras triunfar en media Europa (con el título original de ‘Stripped’), llegará a España de la mano de Antena 3, como una de las grandes apuestas de esta cadena privada para la temporada en curso.

El programa, emitido por primera vez en Dinamarca, ha sido presentado este jueves, 7 de septiembre, en el Festival de Televisión de Vitoria (FestVal), por la directora de Programas de Entretenimiento de la cadena, Carmen Ferreiro, y la directora de Entretenimiento de la productora Shine Iberia (‘Masterchef’, ‘Me resbala’…) , Ana Rivas.

El punto de partida del programa es sencillo: los habitantes de cuatro hogares deberán vivir durante 9 días y 10 noches despojados de todos sus objetos personales y también del mobiliario y resto de útiles domésticos, de manera que no tendrán ropa, cama o sofá. Todas sus pertenencias estarán guardadas en un contenedor situado a un kilómetro de la vivienda. Deberán desplazarse hasta él -se las ingenian para no estar en la calle completamente desnudos- y cada miembro podrá recuperar un solo objeto al día. Cont…Read full original article…
