Welcome to Nude York City.

Some folks are stripping down to escape the scorching summer temperatures - but others aren't waiting 'til they hit the area's clothing-optional beaches.

The au naturel look is catching on at city restaurants, a Midtown yoga club and even a stand-up comedy joint.

"We're just more comfortable nude," said John Ordover, who rents city eateries for dinner parties with a strict dress code - no clothes allowed.

"We're not out to shock or put on a public spectacle. We want only to do things that other people do in the way that we are most comfortable doing them. That, for us, is without clothes," he said.

4. Yeah, and the really hairy and naked ones will kill an appetite
While body and pubie hairs winding up on the dinner plate may appeal to some, I would be
skipping dinner myself.

3.  Yeah-- it would be a lot more comfortable for
"We want only to do things that other people do in the way that we are most comfortable doing them."


Yeah-- it would be a lot more comfortable for me to belch loudly in movie theater, or let an epic fart rip whilst at the Museum of Modern Art rather than waiting until I get home... it's all natural, right? It's just on of those things we do, right? It makes me more comfortable, right?

Sheesh. People are getting so uptight about wearing clothes these days... :evilgrin:
