People do love to take off their clothes, with nudism and naturism definitely alive and well.
Another wonderful World Snooker Championships in Sheffield where the city centre takes on a buzz and excitement rarely felt at any other time.
Some years ago you could barely, (no pun intended) watch a sporting event without seeing a streaker and the Crucible was no exception. Where have they all gone?
One of the most prolific streakers of all time Mark Roberts made two appearances at the World Snooker Finals at the Crucible, once at the Graham Dott and Ronnie O’Sullivan game in 2004, and again in 2008 when Ali Carter played Ronnie.
After a few good years of notoriety, during which he was banned from every football ground in the UK, he hung up his boots which were often the only things he wore!
Streakers apart, people do love to take off their clothes, with nudism and naturism definitely alive and well. And it can be closer than you think!
A farm in Doncaster is holding the annual ‘Nudestock’ event in May which is certified by the British Camping and Caravanning Club. However, the week-long event is well managed, doesn’t hurt anyone or cause any trouble with local people, and really if that’s what floats your boat! The theme this year is ‘Space’ to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lunar Landing, although I seem to remember the astronauts wearing quite a lot on the way of protective clothing, which would have been quite useful given that one of the sporting activities is darts! Ouch!
It is a chance for naturists to socialise with other like-minded people and is a real family affair. Other activities include yoga, body painting and Scottish dancing and there is live entertainment.
