A Motion Picture with a Nudist Theme

Scheduled for release sometime in 2010, Act Natually is a movie about two sisters who discover that their recently deceased father was the owner of a nudist resort and they have inherited it.

This is an independent production and the producers are still trying to secure all their funding, so stay tuned.

You can see a teaser preview of the movie here. (requires QuickTime software to play).

More Medical Reasons to be Nude in the Sunlight

In April 2009's Esquire Magazine, Dr. Mehmet Oz answered this question:
"How come cold weather makes your joints stiffer and in warm weather they feel looser? Isn't it always 98.6 degrees inside your body?"
His answer: "In the winter, you have less vitamin D because you're getting less sun, which means some of your immune functions become weaker. So you end up with a less resiliant body across the board, and that tends to result in stiffness. Try taking a vitamin d3 supplements during the winter in addition to your daily multivitamin".
You can read the rest of Dr. Oz's column here.

Of course, it's much easier to just shed your clothes and go soak up sunshine for a few minutes a day (or as little as 15 minutes a week). Even with sunscreen on you, you will get enough sunshine to overcome your vitamin D needs.

In every winter month in Colorado, there are always one or two days when it is warm enough to enjoy the sunshine without clothing. In January 2009, I was able to layout two days at Mountain Air Ranch, and one day in February 2009. In March, it looks like it will be 10 or more days. Even last October 2008, I was able to layout at Orvis Hot Springs for a couple of days.

A Nudist At Theaters Everywhere

I never read the graphic novel, so I didn't know that one of the main characters in the movie Watchmen was a nudist. So I was pleased to see the movie last night and to see that they handled his nudity without any cheap tricks and made it seem pretty natural, at least for a glowing blue guy who can change matter with a thought.
I liked the movie, but I have heard that not everyone who sees it does. It seems that some people really like the movie and others are tepid. I haven't heard that anyone doesn't like it, although it is a bit gory in parts.

Good BBC Article on Nudity and Shame

The BBC online news magazine has an article about nudity and shame. There is a broadcast about the same subject tomorrow on BBC Two. If an online version becomes available in the US, I will try to post a link to it.
