Channing Tatum is an at-home nudist

In a recent interview with Elle magazine, those lucky fashionistas, Channing Tatum spilled on his passion for the human body and followed up on claim his wife Jenna Dewan made about him getting naked as soon as he gets home. Tatum responded to that reveal: “I don’t really know. I have a really nice back porch where the pool is. Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstairs just follows at some point.” Elle later asked about Tatum being a sculptor, to which he replied: “I really love anatomy, in general. I like sculpting bodies.” He added that mainly it is sculptures that look like his wife’s pre-pregnancy body, and that live, nude models maybe “on the docket.” Tatum certainly does a good job sculpting his own body. We’ll get to see it all again soon in...

FCC considering lifting ban on nudity, expletives on broadcast tv

Nudity and expletives normally reserved for cable television would be allowed on broadcast TV under a proposal from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). In an announcement that received little attention but could have a major impact on America's families, the FCC April 1 announced it is considering changes to the current broadcast indecency policies that would permit "isolated expletives" and isolated "non-sexual nudity" on broadcast TV, something that currently could draw a fine. The FCC is asking for public feedback on the proposed policy. The deadline is the end of April. In its three-page public notice April 1, the FCC said it is seeking public comment on whether the commission should treat "isolated expletives" as it did in a 1987 case -- in which an expletive had to be "delib...

New naked magazine coming out in fall

I just signed up for a free digital subscription to Go Naked Magazine, which I think you may find interesting. Go give it a try. There's not much of a write-up on what they expect to do, but here is what I found: GoNaked is the magazine for and by real nudist men. Real Men. Really Naked. Mission GoNaked is the magazine for and by real nudist men. Real Men. Really Naked. Consider us a pictorial experience for the naturist set. Great articles, great information, great naked men, travel advice, interviews, an every-changing calendar of events, reader submitted stories and inspiring photographs, we aim to provide our readers with the information they need to meet other naturist males. Our readers tend to be over 40 years of age, but with that age comes greater knowledge, need for information a...

Facebook Pulls Down ‘Penis Size Matters’ Study Link

A story from Alice G. Walton in Forbes: Yesterday the powers that be at Facebook pulled down a post from Scientific American, linking to a news story from their sister publication Nature, one of the most highly regarded scientific publications around. The piece covered a well-executed new study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences – another of the world’s most prestigious scientific journals – looking at women’s preferences for male physical features, including penis length, height, and shoulder-to-hip ratio. The problem, apparently, was not the content of the piece, but the fact that it included an accompanying graphic showing computer-generated images of nude males. Facebook’s tight rules on nudity apparently don’t extend to science, although they do allow certain works of ...

4-Corners gay campout

Hey guys, Every year for the past 18, the gay community of the Four-Corners area in Durango/Cortez do a campout. Last year, they had about 70 people show. I was made aware of this by the guy who runs one of the Denver gay nudist groups and they have gone down several years. Yes, the campout allows nudity in certain areas - yaay! Info on the Four Corners Regional CampOUT is here: http://www.campout.moonfruit.com/ It is July 18-22, the weekend before we have scheduled our Pionude Day campout, and I am wondering about moving ours to the four-day 4th of July weekend this year. I intend to do to the 4-corners regardless of whether the group wants to go as well, but I'd love some familiar company. This is not a UMeN-run event, and UMeN rules wouldn't apply, but the camp rules would. But, their m...

‘The Atlantic’ on San Francisco’s nudity ban

The Atlantic chimed in on San Francisco's nudity ban, calling it pretty dumb: In San Francisco next week, it will remain perfectly legal for a 50-year-old man to seduce an 18-year-old, impregnate her, ridicule her physical appearance until she is brought to tears, walk out on her, seek out her mother, seduce that mother for no other reason than to further hurt the jilted daughter, draw a graphic novel of the whole sordid chain of events, and publish in on the Internet. But it'll be illegal for him to be naked outside. Does anyone think the resulting moral signal is desirable? Conclusion: Americans are bombarded with images of semi-clothed people all the time. It just happens that they're all beautiful actors and actresses, magazine cover girls, television underwear models, and porn stars. ...

Truenudists

Hey all! I don't know if any of you are members of other national and world sites, but my favorite is TrueNudists. Most of the others seem to be more of swinger sites, which turn me off. This one is pretty much along the same likes as UMeN with their rules and such. Just thought I'd pass that along. -Michael aka JeepNekkid
