1933 film of a nudist camp, ‘Elysia (Valley of the Nude)’

This 1933 documentary film shows a reporter assigned to write an article on a nudist camp. The film was designed to be shown at small movie theaters as a shocking, exploitation-type movie. Movies of this type were frequently shown at circuses, sideshows, and other traveling shows. The 35-minute film is basically a tour of a nudist camp, showing the people at meals, playing volleyball, baseball, hiking, jogging, playing leapfrog, and other daily activities, except they are all nude. A somewhat amusing and funny film, especially when watched today.

Study: Swim naked to avoid sea lice

The editors of the U.S. Public Health Service professional journal advise people to swim nude to prevent sea lice infection. "In the interest of good public health research and practice, we feel compelled to note that abandoning swimming garments altogether, usually referred to as 'nude bathing' or 'skinny dipping,' might go a long way to reducing the occurrence of this disease," the editors wrote. Their suggestion appears in an issue of Public Health Reports, at the bottom of a study about the risk of developing the seabather's eruption, a rash that can afflict ocean swimmers from March to August. The rash, commonly called sea lice, generally appears in areas of the body covered by swimsuits because microscopic jellyfish get trapped beneath the material and release a venom that irritates ...

Danish children’s show is about a man with an extraordinary penis

John Dillermand has an extraordinary penis. So extraordinary, in fact, that it can perform rescue operations, etch murals, hoist a flag, and even steal ice-cream from children. Danish public network DR recently began airing a new animated series aimed at four- to eight-year-olds about John Dillermand, the man with the world’s longest penis who overcomes hardships and challenges with his record-breaking genitals. Since premiering, opponents of the show condemned the idea of a man who cannot control his penis. “Is this really the message we want to send to children while we are in the middle of a huge #MeToo wave?” wrote Danish author Anne Lise Marstrand-Jørgensen, according to The Guardian. Gender researcher Christian Groe believes the program’s celebration of the power of male ge...
