Let me make this clear: "Co-ed Naked Philosophy" is not your usual, poorly written naturist ramble. As the title suggests, this is a (well-written) book, with a lot of philosophy discussed in its entertaining pages. The plot centers on a group of college students who use nudity as a form of protest. While certainly not a new event, or idea, the kick here is that the professor mentors them, turning what could have been a random, fractious event--to raise the ire of the faculty more than anything else--into a cognitive, rationale argument for nudity, public, or otherwise. Along the way, we have brushes with authority--faculty, police and others--personal conflict and relationships, from budding to long-term. Author Forest also throws in a hurricane for good measure!
"Co-ed Naked Philosophy" also deals with sexuality, frankly and honestly. In too many instances, naturist publications tend to gloss over the fact of our sexual natures, as if we actually resemble the genderless people in those old, fifties nudist mags, with their genitals airbrushed out. Yet, he handles such scenes competently, not falling on either side of the line--one side being pornographic, the other ludicrous--keeping the descriptions from going over the top. Personally, I like to see the natural progression of the various characters' sexual relationships done like this. Who says naturist stories have to be sexless?
Having said all of the above--though "Co-ed Naked Philosophy" is a pleasure for a naturist to read--the story deals more with the philosophy of naturism than life at a nude beach or some tropical vacation mecca. Author Forest also adds enough excitement and tension to keep the reader involved with the story. When you arrive at the last page, you want to say, "Why didn't I think of that?" and you feel as if social nudity, were it the law of the land, would teach us so much about ourselves and our perceptions.
"Co-ed Naked Philosophy", when all is said and done, is a novel--a good novel--for anyone to enjoy. If you're not a naturist, you'll find in its pages an engaging story that makes you think about the role of social nudity in our society. If you are a naturist, this book is a MUST for your personal library!
A college professor struggling for tenure but facing the termination of his course decides to try a revolutionary new idea. His class will be conducted nude, first himself, then any of his students that wish to follow suit. Controversies suddenly rain down like a summer hailstorm, though the idea begins to spark interest among the students. Soon the majority of the professor's students are not only attending class nude, but also organizing supportive events. Battle lines are drawn as the story races toward its ultimate conclusion, complimented by a cast of characters on both sides of the issue, a little romance and a little intrigue.
Co-ed Naked Philosophy is not a sexual tale, just as the naturist lifestyle is not. The underlying message is simply body acceptance, the fact that we're all different in size and shape, skin color and race, and an assortment of flaws, yet beautiful in our own way. The book shines a light on the future, in that there are those among us who recognize Mother Nature's grand designs add a neglected, wrongfully maligned work of art to the overall mix ... the human body. I highly recommend Will Forest's book, and you might have more fun reading it if you do so naked.
