Rogue resort's racy ad has nudists flustered
You know, one never hears about nudist-colony associations until something weird happens. This time, a clothing-optional retreat in Florida called Paradise Lakes Resort has had its membership in the American Association for Nude Recreation suspended over its racy advertising for a G-string pageant. The AANR says the ad, showing a hot blonde chick straddling a motorcycle, "sexualized the nudist experience." It was probably naive of them to expect anything else from a place that sounds like a strip club and holds G-string contests, but hindsight is 20/20 and all that. Really, we just hope this goes to court. The jury will have no idea where to look.
