Advice: When You Can't Be Naked, Get Creative

Posted By on Fri, Jul 24, 2009 at 3:15 PM

Getting nude on California beaches may no longer be as carefree a pursuit as it once was. A 30-year-old policy allowing people to sunbathe on state beaches in the buff with minimal intervention from law enforcement was recently overturned by the courts. Federal parks, like Baker Beach, won't be affected but other nearby parks will -- including Gray Whale Cove and Red Rock Beach. The Naturist Action Committee is appealing, but we must prepare for the worst. Have no fear, Bay Area nudists. We're here to help. Because that's what we do. Here's a list of ways to feel almost as nude as you used to.

1. Adam and Eve Costume
It was good enough for the first humans on the planet and it's good enough for you. Also, these costumes have the added benefit of reminding others that the reason Adam and Eve first donned their fig leaves was because of shame. Sort of like the shame The Man wants you to feel about your perfect, unique naked body.

2. Hand Bra
It's just like being naked, but with someone holding your boobs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
