Naked Old and Unattractive people on the playa?(Revisited)

Postby Sham » Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:53 pm

This thread started out with a younger person rather nervous about seeing unattractive people unclothed. It turned into a great discussion that's worth reading.
Click here for entire thread
So this will be my first year attending the burn.. And my sister just told me it is a total nudist colony and everyone gets naked, and when I think of everyone only 10% (if that) of people are attractive, I assume she was just exaggerating because I have seen some really cool pictures of costumes so i know everyone is not naked. I am bringing my girlfriend and honestly I don't want to have my eyes fall out or be forced to look the other way every time someone walks by us that should be wearing clothes. I wanna keep our innocence from this kind of stuff, So if I attend Burning Man is this just out of the question?

that really was a good discussion. I think lots of opinion and such was aired, and much to learn.
I'm a never nude..........scared someone would call "Greenpeace" and try to return me to the sea. (Beluga beaching in Nevada, rescue team STAT).

but I do appreciate others willingness.

I'm hearing rumors, of a Pershing county ordinance, perhaps still pending, that would preclude public nudity in the county? if so, I wonder if it would effect BRC or not? Are private events excepted?

I do want to clarify one thing about the original poster - this is what they posted when they returned from their first trip to the playa:

So i bet everyone was wondering what happened so i have decided 2 give an update of my experience, i know i am a lil late but i have been busy.. first of my first burn was the most intense experience of my life, i did not expect the burn to be like it was AT ALL.. wow!, great job 2 everyone that participated in it.. hope 2 one day join you in that..

so back to my original topic, before the burn i was not really wanting 2 see the old and unattractive ppl on the playa, but honestly after the first hour there i was so over it.. i felt out there it didn't really matter cuz everyone was so cool.. Yea if ppl did that outside BM it would be wierd, but out there it is so hot that i totally understood, i even join critical dicks in the march to a non-nude camp, it was Hilarious, they even had a syrin and a banner dropped down that said no nudity and had squirt guys and it was just good times..

So i apoligize again fer what i had said before, i now support nudity on the playa 8)


Proof that opinions can change, and Burning Man is a great place to give yourself the freedom to change some!



Still doesn't mean you'll ever see me naked in public out there... :lol:

I actually joined the local gym, started consuming only fruit/vegetable smoothies from my vitamix, and have been visiting the tanning salon in order to prep for BM. Want to make sure I get invited on the cool kids party floats.

I'm also considering botox...on my ass

I've been to more than a couple nude spaces...

The moment clothes come off, nudity just becomes flesh colored clothes. Fades to the background. Becomes a "So what?!" vs. an "Oh dear!"

My only real worry is people who are embarrassed for themselves. They give off an embarrassed energy and make other people embarrassed for them.

So... don't worry, we love you, get naked. Or don't! That'd be delightful too!

Ooo.. in that case, you may want to consider finding a way to get a set of these, too..

Make sure you get lots of gel to spike your hair up. Actually you'll just need one day's worth, and the playa dust will do the rest.

Where do they sell tickets to get on the really cool party floats? Do you need a wrist band? Oh man, I'm going to bring so many of those Mardi Gras beads and hand them out to literally every person on the Playa!

I can tell already that this is going to be the best music festival ever!

I have clearly been wasting my time on my sub par scarves. I should have been making some of these for the mammary-challenged eplayans:

OK, I don't care what your persuasion, preference or perversion, that is really disturbing. I think I changed my entire opinion on this thread. :roll:

VultureChow, that is a very cool scarf. Now you need to work on a belt for the guys! :D

So demanding! Just walk around naked like everyone else! :lol:

Might be a lot of work to come up with a pattern, let alone knit one. I don't even knit. Of course . . . I'm picturing how this would be done anyway: A sporan-like pouch (the balls, if you will) with a horizontal tunnel on the back top, to admit a man's pre-existing belt of 11/2 - 2 inch width. The flap covering the pouch would be the, uh, rest of the business. Oooo, you could sew a jingle bell on the end. Anyway. The yarn could be in a range of skin colors, including green (for aliens) and khaki. One could create a poll here on ePlaya, in which gentlemen could list the average distance from belt to the top of inseam. And then of course decide whether the pouch should be worn, or WORN, because this affects whether you make the back of it somewhat open, or in fact closed for carrying your bathroom flashlight & cigarette lighter.

. . . I think I have a fever right now. BRB, Advil. :shock:

I had only one fairly large cup of coffee today around noon. It's really that I'm kinda sick right now and I think my brain is like . . . cooking. Maybe I shouldn't take the Advil, and see what ELSE happens.

if you're feeling wacky, and maybe out of control, but don't want to take the advil, just to see, I'll be happy to come sit with you. Just to keep you safe and all.

Savannah, that was great. It's definitely a fever and caffeine (and probably Nyquil) talking. Now, who can knit? :D

Yeah, though in my vision, the knitted balls should either hold a man's stuff, or . . . all of a man's "stuff", and the crowning touch is stuffed with cotton or wool.

Ohhh. You could put a squeeze-light in the end. :shock:

Okay I totally posted this last year and I think everyone thought I was psychotic. I made it for another event: Image

For the record, it works best when you put something to weight the shaft down a bit so it hangs right. I used some change and a lip balm. The scrotum is a drawstring pouch. I like to keep jelly beans there. With sufficient weight in the head, the whole thing just hangs perfectly over a very thin belt. You can take it off easily too. Image You can't really read it here, but the lettering says "amaze balls"

Crochet cross-dressing. Nothing like it.

When I was a boy, I routinely scrubbed my grandma's back in the bathtub, from I was just tall enough to reach until she passed away when I was a teen. Nudidity was a non-issue.
