Paris hosts nude picnic 

In Paris, the Nudists Association is hosting a nude picnic for naturists. If you want to eat in the buff, the location is Bois de Vincennes park.

Would you do a spot of yoga in the buff or eat a sandwich in your birthday suit?
If the answer’s yes, and you’re in Paris on June 24 — you’re in luck.
The city’s Nudists Association is hosting a giant picnic for naturists aimed at newbies and pros alike.
The event will honor the inaugural Parisian Day of Naturism, which the Association hopes will become an annual event celebrated on the last Sunday of June each year.
The group hopes it will be a “symbolic day,” bringing together Parisians in the nudist area of the Bois de Vincennes park. [ . . . ]
