Au Naturel

I read an article today about a guy who has a real aversion to wearing clothes.

So much so that he has spent the best part of the last 6 years in prison and clocked up 18 convictions.

Whilst I don’t understand his motivation, you have to admire his perseverance, that’s some serious jail time, and this guy takes it to the next level. We are not just talking a walk in the countryside in the buff, he shows up to his court hearings nude, refuses to put clothes on upon release and perhaps bravest (stupidest) of all refuses to wear a stitch whilst being held at her majesties pleasure.

He has even walked (twice)  from Lands End to  John O’Groats wearing nothing but boots, socks, a backpack and the occasional hat, with his 2006 trip taking 8 months due to his various incarcerations.

For a lot of  people getting naked even in the confines of their own home, with someone they love still requires at very least the use of the dimmer switch, if not total darkness so I’ve never really understood the desire to “rock out with your cock out” but you know each to their own.

Mr Gough states that

“The human body isn’t offensive, that’s what we’re saying, as human beings, then it’s not rational.”

And to a point he is correct, however it is all about context, if this dude wants to run around his own house pants free then hell, power to him, but his most recent prison time was incurred due to taking an “au natural” stroll past a children’s playground, and that’s just not right!

But it’s a difficult situation, this guy, whose only crime is an aversion to wearing clothes has cost the taxpayer a similar amount as someone serving a sentence for a serious violent crime, and based on his attitude he has no intention of dialling it down a notch and putting some trousers on for a trip to the shops.

So what’s the solution?

So far the only suggestion is shipping him back down south to England; you know that notoriously liberal country where people frolic around naked all the time.

Oh wait!

The only thing I can think of, perhaps unfairly, is to stop segregating him from the other prisoners when he goes inside, if TV and Movies are anything to go by, I’d hazard a guess that after a six month stretch as the “naked guy” he ‘d suddenly find that wearing pants has its advantages.
