Yesterday at the National Conference of State Legislatures annual meeting in Nashville, I set out on a search to find the weirdest booth in the massive exhibit hall. Hands-down or, more precisely, pants-down, the winner was the American Association for Nude Recreation.
The nudists, fully clothed, were passing out literature that I would rate PG-13. It extolled the merits of nudity, described the group's work and listed dozens of nudist organizations such as the Buff-A-Teers (Arizona), Bare Essentials (Delaware), Chesapeake Jay Birds (Maryland) and Healthy Hides of Houston (Texas). [All sites mildly not safe for work]
So why would these folks want to influence legislators? Their literature explains, "We ask them to remember YOUR right to practice nude recreation in appropriate settings." Translation: They don't want to be treated like perverts and sex offenders.
