And on the seventh day, Christina Aguilera and her husband created…Naked Day.
Yes, the newlyweds owe their fervent passion to a ritual of parading around their home in the nude each weekend. Apparently, they cook, clean and presumably watch TV au natural on Sundays. But don’t credit those two zany lovebirds with originating “Naked Sunday.” Back in the day in Madrid, a nude Penelope Cruz and her entire naked family used to clean their house every Sunday while listening to classical music by Bizet or Prokofiev.
Even more revealing is “Naked Sunday” at Fitworld gym in Amsterdam. Come March 4, patrons will leave their inhibitions in the locker room and work out unfettered by spandex and Lycra. The gym’s owner got the idea to offer bare hours from the preponderance of pole dancing classes at other health clubs. He also promises that gym goers will be required to put towels down on weight machines and that disposable seat covers will be fitted on stationary bicycles.
How to look great naked—just in case you might feel disinclined to get dressed this Sunday? Three quick tips:
- A little fake tan goes a long way. Just be sure to bronze those pesky anatomical crevices and avoid going overboard. Too much fake spray tan will leave you looking like an overcooked slice of bacon.
- Mind your spine. We’re all inclined to hunch over and cover ourselves when we take off our clothes. Don’t. Stand up straight and pretend that you have a cupcake atop your head as you walk. Good posture can take 10 pounds off your appearance.
- Don’t be a dour nudist. You need not caper about the living room, but be sure to have fun and laugh about the fact that you just got stuck to that leather sofa.
