When K-Mack and I were in the ninth grade, we found a toll-free phone number listed in the back of Premier Movie magazine about "Free Body Culture" that encouraged you to call for more information about the freedom of nudity. Of course we called the number and added pretty much everyone we knew to their mailing list. My mom, for example, got nudist brochures for years. She would write them letters, begging them to remove her from their database of interested parties, but the mailings just kept on coming. I was looking through my old stuff and I found one of the brochures they sent.

This is the cover. What's kinda creepy is that the brochure is filled with videos you can buy for $65 of these people playing frisbee and having pool parties, which leads me to believe this "culture" was more about exhibitionism than it was naturalism, but whatever.

And here are a couple tame pictures of from inside the brochure. You want to know two things that should never go together? Nudes and a pummel horse:

This also looks ill-advised:

Anyway, I just dailed the number to see if they are still in bidness, but it seems as if they are now defunct, so I'll have to find new ways to embarrass my mother. Which isn't really that challenging anyway.

Embarrass Mom? You are so mean. She is a saint!

I think just being a wise ass gets her all revved up. I didn't know she got these things for years.

Oh, and how come I wasn't on the mailing list?

What a bad kid! Hilarious...but bad. Did you ever tell her it was you?

Naked frisbee also sounds dangerous. Getting hit with one of those buggers smarts even with clothes on.

Where are their towels? After reading David Sedaris' latest book, the towels seemed an integral part of the nudist colony lifestyle.

while i was in college working on the newspaper, we would dial this number and forward it to a colleague's phone.
"touch it...feel it..."

still works, by gum.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:35 AM did you get a hold of my old family albums?? Now I must go dial 1-800-Wet-Butt. Fun.

1-800-Wet-Butt? I'm almost curious enough to do it from work. Probably not a good idea.

Now I am convinced it was you who has added my name to the International Male [ing ]list. Don't deny it. God knows I would never buy anything from there. Except possibly this...

Who doesn't love "sparkling" capes?

At least it's always an hilarious read when I get it.

You could get a free sample of KY sent to her...

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:05 PM  

I didn't sign you up for that, but you can also get the Seinfeld Puffy shirt there, for real.

I don't believe you. But keep the thongs and capes coming because I have decided that is going to be my halloween costume for next year. I don't care if I am fat will be more humorous that way.

I'm the one that sent all ya'all the bed wetting stuff. My mom even mailed them for me. I think I remember Stacy saying her mom got phone calls for years on that one. And I know Geckler didn't find out it was me until years later. When I mention it to my mom, she & I still laugh out loud unbelievably hard.

By Blogger hot babe, at 8:52 PM  

I think it is funny how long you utilized the humor in sending them.I got mine our senior year.

By Blogger Stacy, at 2:58 PM  

I remember you doing that! Didn't you also put Grandma M. on the mailing list? Did you ever tell mom it was you who put her on the list? That was a really good one cuz mom got all embarassed and dad was all "Hmmmmmm..." {{{snicker}}} good one.
