The World Skinny Dipping Record has been broken. 2505 women stripped naked on a beach in the Republic of Ireland and ran into the sea to take the record by a convincing margin on Saturday.
I’m guessing that holding a women-only event made it less embarrassing for those taking part.
The previous record was held by South Beach in Perth, Australia with just “shy” of 800 participants back in 2015.
This is the sixth year that the annual “Strip and Dip” annual charity nude swim has happened, raising money for Breast Cancer.
The Western world seems to be getting more at ease with nudity. With the proliferation of naked protest events including the World Naked Bike Ride and Tiger Streaks at several UK zoos, game shows on television such as Naked Attraction on Channel 4 featuring prolonged full-frontal nudity, could this be the start of an era when nudity is much more widespread and accepted? We can only hope!
NakedExperiment.com is working harder than ever to get our experiments off the ground and hope to have at least three experiments take place during 2018. With a little luck, the first mixed-gender experiment will be taking place in the next few weeks. With participants picked and a venue in progress, we’re almost there.
If you want to find out more about our experiments, click here. There’s still time to get involved if you are interested.
Here’s hoping we have a year with more nudity both on television and real life and that our experiments in nudity take off and become the success we all hope they will. Over time it should be possible to locate more suitable venues in other parts of the country and hold experiment sessions in a range of locations. If you want to try out being the only one naked in front of a small group of other people, our experiments are the safest way to do it.
It’s fun to watch videos of strip games being played or to view photos of such activities, but that doesn’t come close to the thrill of playing a strip game in real life. Just imagine watching your opponent removing their clothes right in front of you or having to remove your own in front of them!
I’ve found from experience, that most people who want to play strip games don’t because they don’t want their friends or workmates to find out. It’s also difficult to organise games with strangers and there’s an element of risk there which puts most people off trying.
NakedExperiment is trialling a new feature – organised strip games in the UK. By hiring a safe venue (near Cardiff), ensuring a sensible set of rules are maintained and that players are vetted prior to any game taking place, we are organising a safe and confidential way to enjoy the thrills and fun of playing a proper strip game without the risk of your employer, friends or family finding out.
You’ve always wanted to give it a go but never had the opportunity? Now’s your chance!

There’s lots going on in our NakedExperiment community. The site’s being gradually revamped and improved. A few bits will disappear and I’m aiming to simplify the general experience to make it more friendly and intuitive to new arrivals. I’m also working on a range of ideas to work alongside the experiments and to make everything clearer.
This new colour scheme and theme have already met with a positive reaction from community members. There are many more changes on the way. This will include reducing the number of groups to around a dozen. Some will combine, some will be removed and a few will become gallery pages instead. I’m looking into the possibility of adding a chat forum too, but that’s not definite.
While the improvements and tweaks are going on, there are bound to be glitches and outages. I apologise in advance for any that occur and will work to minimise this.
Hope you like the changes and feel inspired to get more involved in the community in future.
All the best,
Here’s a great opportunity to try out being naked in front of other people:
This year my local one (Cardiff, UK) is taking place on Saturday June the 17th. If you’re going to be attending, please let me know. Maybe members of our community could meet up at the start. The event routinely has well over a hundred naked people take part and it would be great to do some coverage for an article or three on NE and get some feedback from people who take part, especially those doing it for the first time.
Many of us didn’t have the best year in 2016, so here’s hoping that 2017 is a MUCH better year.
Our naked community here will be seeing some drastic changes and improvements during the year, but I haven’t yet decided what those will be. If you’d like to get involved in the discussions about the changes, please visit the News and Announcements group.
So, Happy New Year!
It’s been a terrible time for Belgium, so as mark of respect and solidarity, I have tinted this community’s logo to the black, yellow and red of the Belgium flag.
I fear this sort of thing is never going to stop while violence is driven by medieval beliefs.
Now this girl is very brave.
There are many countries in the world where this would have been considered a crime, but thankfully not here.

In the 1600s until Victorian times, toplessness was socially acceptable, far more so than revealing an ankle. But during the reign of Queen Victoria that changed and, in terms of female appearance, it is probably the only Victorian rule we are left with. What is the problem with women’s breasts?

The community has now successfully completed two months of intensive testing. We’ve made numerous tweaks, many additions and improvements. Some safety features have been added and a few community rules too. Everything is in place and we have gathered over 200 active members too.
Now it’s time for this community to take off. Obviously we need more members, to help ensure that there are people online whenever anyone visits. However what we really need is more active members, willing to participate in discussions, vote in polls, meet new people, contribute to groups, share useful information and generally get involved.
I will be promoting this community on social networking sites and several other appropriate locations, but the very best form of promotion is word-of-mouth. I can’t do word-of-mouth promotion myself. If every member of this community can recommend it to two other people, activity rates will go through the roof, the community will be transformed and it would be a fantastic launch for the whole project.
Can you think of a person or two who would be interested in this community, the groups, the growing collection of photos and videos, and possibly making some new friends too?
