Dining Out



TripAdvisor currently lists 1,075 hotels and 16,890 restaurants in London.  To the best of our knowledge not a single one of these is clothing optional.  Just for fun, if we apply the 6% population finding from BN’s 2011 UK survey, we could expect 64 naturist hotels and over 1,000 naked restaurants, cafés and kebab shops.  I’m quite sure you can get a cup of tea and a hob nob whilst wrapped in a towel at various spas (using the broader definition), but I’m talking about going out for a nice meal with friends.  I want napkins, table service and perhaps an amuse-buche.  Is that too much to ask for?  Apparently it is. 

Our clothing sends out so many signals about who we are, or who we want people to think we are.  It is a barrier to a true understanding of ourselves and other humans.  Bare your skin.  That’s the real you.

You probably won’t find yourself dining in the buff at a Charlotte Street eatery anytime soon, but you might do in a club, a holiday resort or at home with friends.  I don't want you to be unprepared for the experience, so brush up on naked dining etiquette with this link, and remember, always sit on a towel and think twice before you reach over for the Daddy's sauce.
