Travelling to a nudist event

I will shortly be travelling from London to the South of France to take part in a "clothes free" event.

In keeping with my life philosophy, I plan to be naked for as much of the journey as possible.

Should I disrobe before clearing security, or would it be advisable to wait until boarding the aircraft before removing my clothes? I am not sure on BAA's policy on conducting searches of naked passengers.

I don't think you'll even get to your destination if you follow your philosophy in practical terms!

As a naturist, who has travelled to many a nude beach holiday ... I can say that I travel in the mental state of my approaching destination but not the physical as the draughts are just too uncomfortable.

Welcome aboard nudeflyer, as first posts go - that probably takes the trophy - or the clothes as the case may be ... If you are simply trolling in the wee small hours (I'm working!) then you may find your welcome here to be as warm as you hope the beach will be.

Start as you mean to go on, travel to the airport naked and then pass security in that condition, you won't have to worry about taking your shoes or belt off.

Just remember to wash before you go.

Thanks, nudeflyer. You made me laugh on a cold, rainy summer's morning.

I see no practical reason why I could not travel naked, and I intend to be a pioneer of this modus operandi.

Of course, I am fully aware of textile sensibilities, but I'm sure my fellow passengers could simply avert their eyes during this short flight.

On a practical note, a small bumbag should suffice to carry my passport, and indeed to cover my "fleshy flagpole" (as Mum used to call it) at the most important moment.

Hopefully you won't be reading about me in the news!

Dimly recall from law school days that it's a public order offence; if you tried it in the terminal you'd be carted off by airport police and probably be arrested.

Of course, it would be quite interesting to see how the cabin crew would handle it if you waited until airborne before disrobing... (I am, of course, not encouraging this).

(I can't access Tightslot's link; forgive me if i've missed something material as a result).

[Edited to add: this is in fact a response to stewmath's post, which now mysteriously appears below mine].

I could just imagine someone walking through airport security naked wearing nothing but a bumbag. Just makes me think of some of the stuff the guys do on jackass. (not calling you a jackass by the way. lol just the name of the program).

But on a serious note would the airport even allow you to walk through security naked? Im certain theres going to be set policies or laws on it, maybe clearing it with the airport first might be a good idea.

he shed his attire in the plane toilets and stepped out into the cabin presumably to the unbridled delight of other passengers and crew, as he was arrested upon arrival at Edinburgh airport after refusing to resume his togs during the remainder of the flight. Gough was charged with breach of the peace and public indecency and so made yet another appearance in Edinburgh Sheriff Court on 19 May,

I firmly believe it is my right to travel as god made me.

If people can tolerate a screaming scrote of a kid for a couple of hours, I don't see why the sight of my bare body should offend anyone.

It is time for people to get their principles out of the stone age.

You might believe it's your right but it's also people's right not to sit next to a naked man or woman if they so wish, on a full aeroplane it's not as if they have a lot of choice where they sit.

You can and will offend somebody, somewhere and you will make someone feel uncomfortable. Are you that selfish for the sake of a few hours?

However, the bottom line is you won't be allowed to travel in the buff.

And can I choose not to sit next to an obese heffer who takes up half my seat? Or a person with bad body odour?

Have you considered the consequences, if the a/c is full of shell suite chavs well boozed up? Or you start to get a little stiffy on when an attractive cc member (no joke) walks past? And if your 'straight' how would you feel sitting next to a gay male passenger who takes great interest in you, bet you'll be too up tight to have a doze/40 winks.

Nudist traveller, stone age clothing was mainly made form animal skins and bits of bone to fasten it together, so what are you saying about stone age principles?

How many people have you seen wearing animal skins on flights recently (no tailored varieties allowed.)

Apart from zulus and mess with them at your own peril as you might find out why an iklwa is called an iklwa.

I wonder, if you travel nude, do you still have to submit to the new "body-scanners" at some major airports? The ones people say show you nude to the security officers
