Title: Naked News
Post by: Daft on June 30, 2010, 02:48:51 pm
What do you think of Naked News?

http://www.nakednews.com/ (http://www.nakednews.com/)


It's a aprox. 15-minute news program, hosted 6 days a week, that features the news provided by naked anchors. The program recently completed 10 years of existence.


Although of course it isn't a naturist-related program, do you think it portraits nudity in a good way?

During reading the news, the anchor strips (it's not a striptease as there are no tease part). The quality of news as far as I know is higher than your standard ones you get on TV. If it takes naked news people to get the public to watch the news, then yeah for naked news people.

If "naked news" would be only news about what happened/happens in the Naturist world i think i would watch it but just to see an anchor strip no.
Normal news is good enough for me (http://www.postimage.org/templates/images/smiley/smiling/16.gif) (http://www.postimage.org/)

If it was only about that, it would turn boring. Not much news worthy stuff happens in the nudist world...

Yeah, they used to have both men and women as anchors.

But now are only women.

---

Although they don't explicit support naturism, the program sometimes is hosted from a naturist beach in Canada. And the segment 'Naked in the Streets' features an anchor interviewing people in the streets topless. I guess that must be legal in Toronto.

I've seen a couple of them and think they are a bit of harmless fun really. The reporting is average, so without the nudity they wouldn't have survived the 10 years.

From what i've seen its had kinda "eh" news. The nudity aspect as shock value or to get my attention doesnt really work with me being a nudie and all. to get news from them specificly seems kind of a pain when google is much easier. though i admit much less entertaining.

Naked News not degrading


There is nothing degrading to women in e.tv's late night Naked News, the Broadcasting Complaints Commission (BCCSA) said on Wednesday.

The complaint lodged with the commission could not be upheld because the nudity in the programme was not indecent or obscene, it said in a ruling.

The BCCSA tribunal had to decide whether the show, which airs on e.tv after midnight and features bare-chested women reading the news, contravened the Broadcasting Code.

"The tribunal could find nothing degrading to women in Naked News."

Nudity as such was not prohibited in publications or films, and age restrictions and classification strived to exclude children from seeing it.

The BCCSA said the nudity portrayed was unlikely to contribute to violence against women, or to rape.

"The mere fact that the nudity makes no contribution to a better society is irrelevant in law. It is part of the freedom of choice of adults whether they wish to watch the Naked News or not," the BCCSA said.

According to the complainants, who were not named in the ruling, Naked News was "soft porn". They found it "really disgusting" that such a show existed.

"Pornography should not be transmitted into millions of homes."

The BCCSA argued that if people found nudity offensive, they could switch channels or turn the television off.

I strongly hate those people. They should learn to use the remote control and learn that the world doesn't revolve around making the content they want to see.

I believe naturist news exists? Has anyone seen Clothesfree TV?
http://www.clothesfree.com/videos.html (http://www.clothesfree.com/videos.html)

I wouldn't pay the 50$ or whatever it is to watch them, but it seems like it might be news about naturism.

Naked News is alright, but it mostly is just chicks telling you news you can get anywhere else for free, while taking their clothes off in a non-sexy manner in the process.  They do have editorial sections and interviews though...so you get to see and hear what they really think about local, national, and global matters.  Is it a good representation of nudism?  No, but there's FAR WORSE representations out there. (like the Bang Bros. "The Nudist Next Door" movie)  They're pretty innocent, really...and only the stuffiest and elitist of nudists (which are fucking RIDICULOUS to me) would be bothered with the site at all.

Yes, there were male anchors for a while, but they didn't work alongside the female ones...they had their own section, but now all evidence of that is GONE.

The thing I find funny is whenever either the Naked News or the Clothesfree show are brought up, they're always refered to as shows you can watch on television when they're both only online where I live and you have to pay for them.  Maybe they're on the air in other regions, but where I live, they're impossible to watch unless you suscribe.

From what I read, Naked News is high quality news and includes international news. If you live in the US and prefer to have a newscaster tell the news to you rather than reading them on the net, it can be a great alternative to shitty news channels.

NN does cover a lot of subjects, from domestical (USA) news, to international news, technology, nerd stuff, interviews, celebrity gossip, movies, music, etc. The problem here is that because of the small runtime (about 15-20 minutes a day), some approaches are kind of superficial.

But yes, it does serve its purpose to inform.

Title: Interview with Madison Banes
Post by: Danee on January 29, 2016, 04:19:14 pm
(http://aipdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Madison-Banes-cover-620x330.jpg)

Hello Madison, for those who might not know you please let us know you are and please describe yourself? My name is Madison Banes. For the past year I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the Naked News Family as their movie anchor. I also have been teaching Yoga for the past five years.
You are a reporter with the Naked News. For those that don’t know what that is and what it’s about, please explain?
The Naked News is a news program that’s been around for 15 years,reporting six days a week on world news. What makes us way more entertaining then your typical news station is, you have super smart and sexuality ladies getting naked as they give you each story! So basically I tell you want movies you are going to watch while stripping. Win win.
So now that we know what it is all about, how did you get involved with the Naked News?
I’ve been lucky enough to have Eila on my top 5 list of friends. Eila is like my fairy, she ultimately gave me the push to audition. l honestly went into the audition with no expectation. I was just excited for the thrill of getting naked on camera. I’ve put a lot of hard work into my body for the past years so even auditioning was gratifying.
What are your main reporting duties, if you have a specific job?
My main segment is Naked at the Movies. I report on the latest movies on the big screen as well as what’s coming out on Blu-ray or Netflix etc… I also let you know which movies are a must see, while giving you my two sense in hopes to save you from the duds. Oh! Did I forget to include I get naked? I know… my job rocks!
What would you say is your favorite segment you have done?
My favorite segment would have to be the SuperKick’d Pro Wrestling show I covered! It was so much fun! I had never been to a live show. The energy was insane. I would definitely recommend going if you ever get the chance.
If you had a choice to do any story, what would it be?
I would be able to die a happy Madison if I could interview Jennifer Lopez just once! I just need to ask her how she did it, how she knew what to do, and  if she would do anything differently. She is someone I’ve really been inspired by my whole life.
Obviously you are very attractive so I was wondering if you have ever thought about or been approached about doing more modeling, nude or clothed?
I’m taking modeling day by day. I absolutely love it and it definitely keeps me busy on any down time I have. For me I’ve always dreamed of being in Playboy, and I guess now the magazine can go in either column nude or clothed. For me I don’t care about being nude or clothed in a photo as long as the photo is tasteful and makes a statement. I don’t want to just be another pretty face. I want the pictures I’m part of to be stuck in your head for days because they are just that captivating. I want to be part of art, creative art.
You also have a website, MadisonBanes.com (http://madisonbanes.com), where people can see some of your photo sets as well as a blog. What lead to the creation of the site and are planning any changes in the near future?
I wanted a place to share my thoughts. I got what I wanted and my website was born. I really want my website to grown and I’ve been promising myself I’ll write three times a week but clearly am slacking. This question alone makes me want to blog. I want to create  a space where people can get to know me and I can share myself. In the future I want to have more yoga on the site so I can work out with my fans! I’m sure time will tell.
You are also a yoga practitioner. How long have you been doing yoga and what is your favorite part of doing it?
Yoga has helped me maintain myself healthier and with more awareness. I’ve been overweight in past years to the point I couldn’t cross my legs. The fact I’m am able to move freely is a miracle to me. To be able to share that miracle with the world and help others find freedom in movement also, has to be my favorite part.
Seeing that you are from Canada, how would you say Canadians differ in their views on sex and sexuality compared to the US?
I feel Canadians are more open minded when it comes to sex. I’m happy to be Canadian.
What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?
When I’m not working and it’s winter I’m a Netflix and chill kinda girl. When it’s nice out you will never find me inside unless it’s to sleep. I love the outdoors I just hate being cold. I am however that typical chick who loves a good shop and a good night out dancing every now and again. You know? A good night to dance your heart out is always good for the soul.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
At the moment I’m in talks to do a fitness competition which will be one off the bucket list! Other then that the Naked News is where it’s at! So I hope everyone joins me to keep informed!

Nothing naturist or nudist about the same - pay TV news.

Earlier anchors looked natural (somewhat in line with the naturist values). However, the present ones have fake boobs and completely shaved pubes.

They made a Docu Series to celebrate their anniversary

Fake boobs are acceptable in US/Canada - even amongst naturists (less in Europe & Australia/NZ).

Page 3 Sun UK remains so popular even after several decades because of Strict natural boob policy.

Personally, I have more respect for a female with mosquito bites boobs rather than Fake Ones - against body acceptance values of naturists.

On the other hand, fake boobs introduce artificial roundness (rather than perkiness) and eliminate the natural jiggle and beauty. It is like telling the world - do not look at me, look at my boobs.

Page 3 UK is still popular today because of wonderful and natural portrayal of feminine beauty.

On the other hand, fake boobs are so common in US/Canada, almost 1 out of every 2 girls is so called "enhanced".

Ummm...no.  Not even close. 5% is not 1 in 2. (https://www.pacificheightsplasticsurgery.com/breast-implant-statistics/)   I do agree with some of your comment though.  It is a matter of personal choice though and no-one should be looked down on for doing that, in my view.    My younger sister was a late bloomer and it stressed her somewhat but small is in, look at runway models and there are big advantages to it.   

Still, natural is natural and I am a firm believer in it but never condemn someone who does it.  I try to talk them out of it, but don't condemn them.

Small breasts are IN! (http://www.cosmopolitan.com/health-fitness/advice/a3460/why-small-breasts-are-good-for-you/)

NN models also have lots of piercings (including nipples and clit hood) and gaudy tattoos (not as natural as naturism expects).

Come on girls - your bodies are not bulletin boards or paint boards.

Title: Re: Naked News
Post by: gj83 on April 20, 2016, 04:34:19 pm
I would respectfully disagree with your sentiment. One of the great things about naturism is that it gives everyone ways to express themselves without fear of judgment. If some women (and men as well) choose to express themselves through tattoos and piercings, then that's wonderful. At least when you are a naturist, you are given the ability to actually express yourself with those parts of your body to more people rather than having to hide it under your clothing. I do not have any tattoos and piercing, because I choose not to express myself that way. However, I'm glad that naturism gives many the opportunity to express themselves that way.

Well, this thread was about whether Naked News can be considered a naturism related show or not?

Skin is the best (and natural) outfit for naturists - the body is beautiful in its entirety - I, personally, do not like extra attention to specific body parts via enhancements, piercings and tattoos?

Anyways, if the same can also serve as a good (and larger one for naturists) canvas, so be it...

I find this interesting this argument over aesthetics of presenters rather whether this Naked News has any news to speak of or whether it is just desperation on the part of TV media in the dying days Roman empire. The Naked News I want is proper honest journalism the clothing they wear or not is up to them.

A couple of men angrily arguing about what women do with their bodies. This is bound to go well. (And yes, I recognize the irony of me injecting myself into the discussion.)

And now, back to the real original question. I do not think that Naked News should be considered a naturist show. It's pretty clear that it is done both to arouse, even if it does convey some legitimate news in the process. Naturism is not about sex, but naked news is intended to be sexual.

Having said that, it's very close to naturism. For large portions of it, they really are just reading the actual news while naked. I think that if they were naked the entire time, there would be less of a striptease element to it. It's that slow unveiling of the body done in order to arouse the sexual interest of the watcher that makes it less naturist and more sexual. I think that removing the striptease element that would make it more of a naturist show.

Like I said, it's very close to being a naturist show. Certainly, it's great that they are doing something to promote naturist locations. That is great advertising for those places, and it's probably not bad for naturism as a whole.

And having given it a little bit of thought, I would revise my answer. The question is too simple to give a good answer. It asks whether something is naturist in a completely binary sense. The question presupposes that either a show is naturist or not with no room for middle ground.

However, I think that there is lots of room for middle ground. It's good that the show promotes the normalization of nudity. That is very naturist. Also, it's great that they often do it in natural locations which shows just how wonderful an experience it can be to be nude in a natural setting. Those things about the show are great, and I'm sure that people who are more acquainted with it can give more reasons why it promotes naturist values.

Having said that, it also does have a tendency to sexualize simple nudity, which is not a naturist value. Also, it tends to teach acceptance of only very specific body types (attractive, generally low-weight females) rather than acceptance of all body types. As a counterpoint, I do know that one of the newscasters did the show while she was pregnant, so that is more in line with acceptance of variously shaped bodies.

So, I would say that it has some good naturist elements and some elements that are not in line with naturism. It's just not one of those things that we can slap a label on of "naturist" or "not naturist" then move on. It does not squarely fit into one category or the other.

It's like the various naked reality shows that have been on basic cable television in the US recently. Some make nudity seem like a gimmick and something to be laughed at, which is not good for naturism. However, they have helped normalize nudity on television. You now will regularly see bare butts on basic cable. That would have been unthinkable 15 years ago. Maybe there will be more normalization of nudity in the next decade or two, and we will have "Naked and Afraid" and "Dating Naked" to thank for it.

So, I would say that it has some good naturist elements and some elements that are not in line with naturism. It's just not one of those things that we can slap a label on of "naturist" or "not naturist" then move on. It does not squarely fit into one category or the other.

It's like the various naked reality shows that have been on basic cable television in the US recently. Some make nudity seem like a gimmick and something to be laughed at, which is not good for naturism. However, they have helped normalize nudity on television. You now will regularly see bare butts on basic cable. That would have been unthinkable 15 years ago. Maybe there will be more normalization of nudity in the next decade or two, and we will have "Naked and Afraid" and "Dating Naked" to thank for it.

Excellent way of putting it, but you have to remember that on these reality shows that have nudity as a gimmick, pretty much all of the participants that appear aren't nudists, or are at least somewhat alright with their bodies. Also on these shows, not everyone has an, "I WORK OUT EVERY GOD DAMN DAY PEEP THESE ABS" body, so that definitely helps. I mean, it's a baby step, but it's still a step. Doesn't need to promote nudism, but normalizing nudity only helps everyone else in the long run, so hey...take it.

P.S. Of course my post would get deleted without warning. I don't regret saying what I said 'cause it needed to be said.

I agree, Kenny, with your view on this .

Your post, and the reply, were deleted as in the view of some staffers, they were offensive.  We are pretty liberal, Kenny, but we do have rules on things and while you might not agree, they are rules for interacting here.    If you read them, you will see that  As fora  warning, you do not want that label on your profile. 

I say this with respect as I have known and liked you for a long time but it is how it is.  Period.    We did not contact you , or the other person asking you to change or amend and apologize for the overuse of profanity (its in the rules). We simply took them off.

well havent seen it, but it sounds like a good step towards a fully naturist society when even the most ordianry and usually serious - like tv news - becomes fully nude ... would be wonderful if all other activities became nude too  :laugh:

There are a bunch of those naked news spin-offs now, NudeMuse News is one example:
https://vimeo.com/214265126

I think they definately serve a purpose in normalizing nudity and that they are positive for the naturist community as long as its non-sexual nudity.

 I saw some comment earlier that many of the models have shaved pubes and enlarged breasts and that thats not accepted among naturists and I totally disagree. I believe body acceptance is a huge part of naturism.

i agree @kobe.malta plus it's all women. it's meant to be arousing IMO

judging by the website, its pretty sexualised. I wouldn't consider it naturist at all

It isn't overly sexualised, but the anchors are very attractive.

i think we might be getting a bit too strict if we demand that nude people should be unattractive  :laugh:  personally i find attractive people - well attractive  :laugh:  can't wait to check this show - thanks for sharing !

Naked News is definitely a fine line of trying to cater to non sexual nudity and people looking for titillation. They have done reports at nudist venues which is nice.


I like the idea of Clothesfree.com, the fact that they interview real nudists and give reports on resorts, beaches and events is great. It gives a better perspective on how resorts and the people are. The production value is pretty terrible though, not worth the pay wall.


That's the difference though, people paying for titillation provides better production quality rather than watching the average nudist read cue cards terribly.

I've seen a few episodes of naked news in the past and I think the nudity was really just used as a gimmick. That being said, I don't ever recall there being a male news anchor? I know the average demographic responds better to the naked female form but it would also be good to see some measure of equality and have both genders represented! Maybe I should consider a change of profession...  :buttshake

There used to be dudes, but they didn't bring the numbers that the women did...
