Liberating. Enjoying the taboo. Thrill seeking. Pretty harmless if you ask me, but the Puritanical minions in the US have tried to make it into a sexual deviant / sex crime over the years. Uptight, white, straight, suburbanites..... you just have to pity them sometimes.  Wink  Big grin

I used to streak when I was in college. I find it funny regardless of how attractive or unattractive a person may be.
When I was in high school, I had a teacher that always boasted about when he would go streaking at the University of Texas back in the late 1960s. The scary thing was that he was a big fat dude with a beard.

We could do a "Caption This Pic" Thread using the two security guards behind the streaker. Their facial expressions are interesting, to say the least.

Streaking is a big pastime at Dartmouth, too -- people streak the library, the dining hall, etc. It's so frequent that students barely care and safety & security doesn't even bother to do anything about it.

Back to the topic, The West (mainly the United States) has made the human body so shameful that people do things like this. Who cares if people feel comfortable walking around in only a pair of shoes and a smile. Unless they are being nasty about it, why does it matter? If authorities would not spend so much time going after streakers, or people that just want to not wear clothes, others wouldn't make such a big deal about it. I know I wouldn't mind if I saw said streaker coming down the lane at me....

Yes, but in India their lifestyle is to be highly modest in day to day life, whereas in parts of Africa the naked body is preferred. Every country has their reasons.

On a serious note, I think India is less obsessed with body image than in the United States. I think the United States and parts of Europe are so obsessed with keeping the filthy naked human body under wraps that things like streaking and clothing optional beaches are taboo and sought after. Maybe if conversations went more like "Oh look... a naked person. What were you saying about Aunt Gladys?" instead of "OH MY GAWD!!!! They are NAKED!!! Shame shame SHAME on them!!!" maybe streakers would not streak so much.

But, it would still be funny!

All streakers are attention-whores, period.

Which is why you find them doing it in widely televised sports events, where it is sure to catch the camera.

I actually streaked at least once, at home when I was a little boy (6 or 7 years old, in the early 1980s)!

I got a spanking from my mom for it! (My older sister spanked me another time for streaking too).

I have even had a dream where I was naked in church; I dreamed that afterwards, I got outside into a black car and was spirited away.

Yeah, that's true! I don't understand the horrible-ness of streaking. What harm is it doing? Everyone gets a laugh. It gets everyone's attention better than suicide bombing. Plus, everyone goes away feeling good! People still get a laugh over seeing David Niven being streaked.

For the same reasons that a lot of people don't like guys with body hair. It's all just a preference.

I, for the record, do not discriminate in either way  Wink as long as we're not talking about a Yeti, though I will say I find at least a little body hair sexy, it's not a requirement.
