Now we may be the first to get our panties in a twist in the bare bootie convo, but this is different.
Quite literally every newsie blog we saw (NYMag, Gawker, HuffPo to name a few) blasted a story last week about Naked Space in Park Slope Brooklyn and their no ladies allowed, this is a boys-only no-girl-cooties yoga rules. No, we do not think dudes getting naked to do yoga together and letting their wangs fly freely in the downwind is news. Nor is it really a big deal ladies aren’t invited. Though they’re not usually banned, how may men are asked to attend Shakti Moon Circles?
The best answer? Well, what do you usually do when you get an erection? *snicker* pause for reflection.
From Naked Space FAQ:
What if I get an erection? Congratulate yourself for having a healthy reproductive system. Seriously, erections are natural. Some guys will get them, some won’t; either way, it’s not a problem. What you choose to do with your erection is another matter. Be responsible for your actions and aware of the other people sharing the space.
So yeah, dudes, you can totally go to Park Slope to Naked Space and find out for yourself. The ladies will just have to use your imagination, or your rights to create an all chica class. (Turns out there are some Naked Space co-ed events, too.)
Honestly though, the shock value has long gone from the thought of nudie yogis, and we’re not talking buck naked bakasana in the window of Lululemon, this is in an enclosed, and hopefully hygienic environment. And be real, how many times have you taken the liberty to practice at home in your underwear, or less?
Clothes are oppressive. We say, let the men strip down and practice however many legged down dogs they want! Our only request is if it goes beyond yoga’s borders into orgyland we don’t need to hear about it. Now free yourselves!
Naturally this calls for a YD poll. Vote!
