Time for a Nakation?

I get several pitches a day from various PR hacks looking to place a story for a cleint. Most of the time I ingore them. Occasionally I ridicule them. But once in a while I simply reproduce a portion of their email verbatim.

The latest travel buzzword to appear in our lexicon comes from the
 50,000 members of the American Association for Nude Recreation
 (www.aanr.com) and the word is: Nakation.

AANR defines a Nakation (pronounced like vacation) as: v. to take a
 clothing optional vacation, esp. away from home for pleasure and
 recreation. n. the part of your vacation you’ll brag to friends about.

Heck, with airlines charging for extra checked luggage, it makes good
 fiscal sense to take a Nakation. This type of pleasure trip also
 eliminates the potential hassle of lost luggage!

This one just requires no further comment.

  1. Nude vacations are very popular. Forbes Magazine reported they are the fastest growing trend in the travel industry.

    For instance we own The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort in sunny Palm Springs, CA. We have one of the highest occuapncy rates in town.

    I heartily recommend that everyone try a nakation. It is lots of fun, and once you vacation “au naturel’ you will never want to wear a wet bathing suit again.

  2. Tan lines suck,as do tourist towns.If everyone’s nude,no one is ever “underdressed”,because nobody is being judged.I LOOOVE coming home with only a day’s laundry to do,because I didn’t wear anything all weekend.A NAkation is the only way to VAcation!! Nude recreation ROCKS!
