Birthday-suit parties all the rage for Ivy League students(Bush Twin '02?)
http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/international.cfm?id=36...

STUDENTS at America's prestigious Ivy League universities are rebelling against their colleges' stuffy reputations, casting off society's norms along with their clothes to hold naked parties.

The Pundits, a secretive society at Yale University, initiated the events - which profess to be non-sexual in nature - in the mid-1990s, open to a select few. The society claims that president George Bush's daughter, Barbara, attended a naked party during her second year, in 2002. The White House has always declined to comment.

But the naked parties are now fixtures among liberal students being primed to become the nation's elite.

While one campus source at Yale - to which Euan Blair, the Prime Minister's son, has won a scholarship - says naked parties are "the No1" thing to do before graduation, students who attend the six to eight parties held each year say it can be a life-changing experience, far from the "frat-house" bawdiness portrayed in films such as Animal House. Megan Crandell, a final-year Yale student who has attended six naked parties, said: "The dynamic is completely different from a clothed party. People are so conscious of how they're coming across that conversations end up being more sophisticated. You can't talk about how hot that chick was the other night."

Another Yale student, who did not want his name to become known by campus authorities - which do not try to stop the parties but do not encourage them - said: "Part of it is just the mystique of not knowing where you're going. It's become a hip thing to do."

1. This has all the earmarks of a student-instigated hoax.
That's how it seems to me.

But can America and the World cope with this race of Superhumans, who work out perform Brain Surgery and understand Quantum Electrodynamics??

4. I know a few naked party-goers.

Of course, they're all in their 40s or 50s. Didn't know college types went in for that sort of thing. Glad to hear there is hope for the future (even if I do find them kind of silly).

And, FYI, they have EVERYTHING to do with sex. They're not orgies or anything like that. But it is all about advertising oneself.

5. My band used to have naked parties all the time.
Back in the late 80's/early 90's. We were way ahead of the curve on the whole salad tossing thing as well. Rookies.

6. I've been to tons of naked parties. Been a nudist for many years.
I met my wife and her family in the nude. Some people take to it, some don't. It can be non sexual and it can be sexual. It is all in the mind you know. It is a much different experience than most but very few people look good naked so it isn't all that much of a turn on.
