Thoughts on Naked Stars in the Media

Royal Naked Stars:
Naked Celebrities – The past few weeks have been fairly active with stories of http://crazypublic.com appearing in public in one way or another. Perhaps the two most intriguing naked celebs involve members of the British Royal family – Prince Harry, second-inline to the throne and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, his sister in law and wife of heir to the throne Prince William.
The manner in which they seemed, nevertheless, could not be more different.
Prince Harry apparently had a great time in http://x-public.com , prior to shipping out to Afghanistan for military service. To be fair, Harry did not seem naked in public. Instead, pictures were taken of him during a party he was having in his hotel suite with friends old and fresh. His security detail did not confiscate the phones/cameras of guests prior to entrance, and the photos were definitely released without his approval.
One of the challenges we face as nudists is the manner in which the media depicts nudity. In America, society is already programmed to equate just being nude with sex and unacceptable conduct. Stories that usually make the headlines involve celebs like Prince Harry, actress Alison Pill (who this week accidentally tweeted a topless photo of herself), Kansas Representative Kevin Yoder (who went for a naked swim in the Sea of Galilee on an official trip to Israel) or people committing crimes while nude.
Prince Harry Is One Of The Naked Celebs
Catherine’s topless sunbathing in France, on the other hand, is more in line with what we’d consider a typical, uncontroversial nudist activity. This should, if anything, be a positive for nudism – Catherine is well-liked in the United Kingdom and abroad. Yet the vast media these photographs are receiving seem to reinforce the perception that what she is doing is naughty and unbecoming a royal.
Does the nudist movement have a chance of ever winning over the media? Are we destined to be eternally associated with strange offense and celebrity sleaze? Our buddy Tom Mulhall has made inroads with some posts over at The Huffington Post (see: “Kate Middleton’s Topless Break Was British and Appropriate”).
