PUBLIC NUDITY: now even the Germans are covering up

For decades Germans have extolled the benefits of free body culture – or being naked in nature. But a German SEXOLOGIST has claimed that the practice of FKK, as it is widely known, is dying out due to a new “nudity taboo”.

“FKK is no longer a trend,” states sexologist Hans Onkok in his new book, Nudity Congestion, in which he argues that a practice that once dominated large parts of German holiday resorts is now considered old-fashioned and too regulated. “Now stretches of beach dedicated to FKK are reduced and often even combined with the stretches of beach reserved for dog walkers.”

Nudism pioneer Lord Monboddo was Scottish - so I blame Brexit.

What is the dividing line between nudism and exhibitionism?

Does FKK stand for Frei Korps Kulture?

Very popular just after the First World War, I understand.

Freikörperkultur, ffs.

Delighted_User - 08 Aug 2019 15:04:20 (#5 of 22)

Never mind, just got it.

'He blames a drop in membership on a social media-driven desire for the perfect body'

Hmm. Who wants to look like a nudist on Instagram?

Skinny jeans are preferred to skin I suppose.

FredDee - 08 Aug 2019 16:24:16 (#9 of 22)

what a relief that nobody will make silly puns out of phrases such as

'drop in membership'.

Poor fuckers. Relegated to the dog shit beach.

Lubmin was stowed of with saggy pensioner flesh, two years ago. One couple even cycled down to the beach, dogs in tow.

In Dresden, today, there was not a single person unclad.

Making them stay clothed fueled resentment and thus Hitler.

Wearing clothes = Being a Nazi.

Most people look better when they're clothed.

TheVoiceOfReason - 13 Aug 2019 09:15:34 (#18 of 22)

Speak for yourself, Rosy!

RosyLovelady - 13 Aug 2019 09:18:45 (#19 of 22)

Of course I do; but in the course of a longish life I've noticed that it's a general rule.

Reality tv buff that you are, you don’t fancy a shot on Gok Wan’s How to Look Good Naked programme?
