I don't care much about your genitals.

But if you're hairy and fat and your balls hang down to your kneecaps, then please don't run around naked, okay?

When I go jogging, I wear form fitting polyester underwear under my shorts to keep everything in place. It must be really uncomfortable for a guy to have his junk flopping around while he's running. Another reason I wouldn't go running nude - I would find the laughter of the people watching me to be very distracting.

Also this guy sounds like a Grade A attention whore. He should have shown up to court in nothing but black socks and dress shoes. I wonder if the judge would have been as tolerant if he had to look at this guys junk throughout the entire trial?

Ooh. He's been a nudist/naturist for 18 whole months! What with gay marriage being discussed and all.

Sounds like SF booted him out of the Castro district for being too freaky.

This, and the fact that the people most willing to shuck their clothes are generally the ones that really should keep em on, not to mention that when I go for a walk I generally end up with at least one insect bite, I cant imagine having a mosquito or horsefly bite on mr franknbeans....

Well, at least his nuts are shrunk right up to his taint so they're not flapping about. I'd image having your balls flap around while jogging wouldn't be the most comfortable thing...

Mr Pointon said yesterday he enjoyed the freedom of not wearing clothes and began running naked about 18 months ago because he thought New Zealand was becoming more liberal, particularly with discussions around gay marriage.

"It's just another lifestyle and I want respect for it."


I was sympathetic up until this point. Now I just think the guy's an attention whoring dumbass.

You do realize that for the vast majority of mankind's tenure on this planet, we didn't have tighty-whiteys, right? We evolved as running apes well before we ever gained the sophistication and/or need (Africa not being very cold on average) to have junk-paralyzing undies. I'm not saying it is necessarily a fun thing to do, but evidence suggests long-term free-ballin' doesn't do that much, if anything; the evidence being our existence, since our species would have died out well before becoming our species if it did bad things to the meat-and-two-veg

Everyone probably died around age 30 something back then and I'm sure there were a lot of scrotal injuries from getting it snagged on thorny bushes.

I'd imagine a certain amount of shrinkage while jogging would prevent that, even in well hung guys.

My mother had a video of a naked guys exercising (she found it at a garage sale)
It was a straightforward exercise video, they were just naked. It did look pretty uncomfortable.
I wouldn't go jogging without a bra either.

Umm, he's been a naturist for decades. He started jogging nude a year and a half ago.

Also, he's been doing this for 18 months and only one person has been bothered enough to make a complaint? Let 'im run.

Is there any culture in the world (I'm thinking tribal) that usually walks around buck naked?

If not, why not?

There are probably reasons for covering the genItalia. Why do we dress in clothes nowadays? There's the obvious one, protection from the elements.

Anyway, I guess the issue I'm dancing around is sexuality and inappropriate/dangerous/damaging sexual behavior. Sexuality is a contiuum. From those who are very modest about their bodies to those who would have sex with a woman on stage in an auditorium full of screaming fans.

So it varies for different people. For most people, it's not as casual as say it is for a hardcore nudist or a porn actor. But it's not quite as repressed as a fundamentalist Muslim woman wearing a full burqa.

Are people going to be negatively impacted if they encounter naked strangers? I think it would uncomfortable for a lot of people. The first thought that would pop into my mind is "Insane or sex offender."

I don't think any human culture is perfect. I don't think ours is going to be improved by allowing people - men - to walk around in public spaces, completely naked.

"When in doubt, don't whip it out."

FunkOut: Everyone probably died around age 30 something back then


Nope. the development of a fairly long post-menopausal lifespan in humans indicates we were living reasonably long lives.The problem with pre-modern life expectancy figures is not that they represent the common age everyone keeled over, but that they are averages with a fairly high infant mortality component. Getting to a week old was a serious accomplishment, getting to a year was unlocking an achievement, to 20 was a climb, but after 20 or so you had about as much of a chance to hit 60 as anyone before 1900

Pretty much. The whole "life expectancy was 30! Everyone died young!" was an AVERAGE, not the mean. Three of five infants didn't live to age five, and only one in five made it to puberty. However, anyone who lived past that probably lived into their fifties. The other thing skewing the average down is that women died young in childbirth; and men tended to die young in battle; neither of those are caused by disease or physical ailment. Anyone physically healthy who wasn't a warrior and had good pelvic clearance was going to survive okay.

Yes there are. Bushmen in Africa I believe, among others.

My mother lived in Africa in the 60s and was used to seeing people naked out and about. Not Bushmen, I don't know what people though. It's not like everyone was nekkid all the time, though.

A beautiful naked person is an invitation. A fat, old, hairy person with droopy tits, saggy balls or skin that looks like a NASA photo of dunes on the Gobi desert is a turn-off.
