Totally Nude Dance Party

Never has the phrase “let it all hang out” been more appropriately assigned. Nearby nudist resort and campground Bell Acres hosts a dance party Saturday featuring local DJs Nate Mitchell and Mahogany, so if you’ve ever wondered what your favorite disc-spinner looks like in the buff, now’s your chance to find out. Here’s the catch: You’ve gotta strip, too. But don’t worry: Mitchell says his first foray into nude partying last month was a revelation. “Approximately 20 minutes after disrobing, the initial self-consciousness wore off and the liberating appeal of naturism became clearly evident, creating an environment of body-positivity that runs in direct opposition to what images and messages we are constantly bombarded with by media and advertising while living in the USA.” Yeah, yeah, but also: wieners!
