From films and books to cartoons and beyond, nudism has found its way firmly into the zeitgeist over the years. If you’re like us, you might be more than a little obsessed with tracking its various representations and stereotypes. We decided to switch things up a little bit for this week’s #UndressedThread and put together a little trivia quiz!

50%. Oh well. But Shel Silverstein was a Playboy cartoonist at the time. He started writing children's books later.
70% not terrible at least.The cartoon questions got me.
8 very lucky guesses.
7/10. I don't know my authors or physicists very well.
As far as other pop culture examples go, I kept thinking I wanted to write about the character Minami from the Netflix show Million Yen Women, who stands out as one of the most well done examples of a nudist character, but it turns out I already did back in 2018: https://reflectedgaze.wordpress.com/2018/05/14/worth-a-million/
I will also add, since Tommy is in the banner image, the episode of Rugrats where all the babies give nudity a try and Tommy gets into it is burned in my brain as one of the best early examples of nudism I experienced.
80% missed two
Not well!! However - the knowledge I get from reading Planet Nude helped me to choose most of the correct answered that I did choose. 😊😊
7 of 10; never been much of a "pop culture" guy. I remember Shel Silverstein Playboy special, from when I would occasionally buy a Playboy and read it furtively: I always wanted to see if there were hints of naked full-frontal men, and I was excited at his cartoon with the caption, "Are you really going to draw us naked full-frontal?" - but the cartoon was from the knees down!
I was certain of 2 answers. 1 was a wrong guess. I didn't guess the rest, as they are all geared towards USA people / tv series or to people who watch a lot of films.
I simply had no clue. :-)
80% - missed the first question and the physicist question. Fun! Thanks for putting this together.
100% maybe I spend too much time online reading about nudism
I got a perfect score... but two of my answers were just guesses.
50%. Guesses where mostly wrong. Only knew about three of these. I need to get studying.
50% the only ones I KNEW were Helen Mirren, Peter Sellers, and Benjamin Franklin. Got lucky on two others.
80% missed numbers 5 and 8. Tough quiz!!
8 of 10.
Only 60%. I need to study!
I got 90%; only missed question 1, but 3 and 9 were guesses.
Missed 1,3,and 5. Oh well.
Family Guy, the family meets a naturist family, while it’s mainly a good example of naturist/nudist life, it’s a comedy so....
Smokey and the Bandit 3, without Burt Reynolds sorry ladies, Sheriff Buford and Junior stumble into a nudist resort. Junior tries it, his Daddy makes him leave. Comedy again, so they make fun of nudism/naturism.
It seems most of the time, nudism/naturism is used in mainstream media to either be a comedy piece, is used for the shock factor, or worse, to be titillating. None of which truly represents what Naturism/Nudism is about.
