The BOP Times reports:
An attempt at breaking a world-record for skinny dipping planned for Mount Maunganui is being labelled unacceptable and indecent.
The idea was raised by The Edge radio station after listeners voted the nudie run at the Bay of Plenty beach would be the best way to herald the start of summer.
Marketing manager Emily Hancox said the skinny dip world record attempt would, hopefully, be held on December 1 “as a bit of fun”.
“It’s not for people to be shy or embarrassed. If people can see the fun in it and try to get New Zealand on the map for that [world record], it will be great,” she said.
What a great idea.
However, national director of Family First NZ Bob McCoskrie said holding the event in such a public place would be “completely unacceptable”.
Very smart idea of The Edge to get Bob to condemn it, as that should help them get more publicity for it 🙂
The world record for a collective skinny dip was set by 413 people in the United Kingdom last year.
Hell, easy to beat.
