Are you sick and tired of trying to make your relationships work? Have you had enough of putting your own needs and desires on the back burner while you try to fulfill those of someone else? Here's the reality of the situation: dating is not about trying to make things work, and it's not about putting off the things you want. What dating is all about is finding the person who is the best match for you. The problem is that too many people aren't willing to get naked, that is, to be honest with themselves and with their prospective mates. They hide who they really are inside, become frustrated with their partners, and then the relationship ends up on the rocks. Imagine how easy dating would be if you knew exactly who you were dating from the get-go, and the other person knew the same thing. In this informative book, dating expert David Wygant takes you on a journey that will change your life forever. David will help you conquer your relationship fears and insecurities once and for all and attract the kind of people you want to meet, date, and build long-term relationships with. Being single and dating means that you have the freedom to meet the right person, and the power to finally get it right. Being single can be the most amazing adventure if you're willing to reveal the real you-both to yourself and to others. Within these pages, you will discover how to use the Law of Attraction in dating to your advantage, how to speak from your heart, how to understand exactly what you want out of life, and how to communicate honestly-with yourself and with your mate. By the time you're done reading, you'll be naked, too-and you'll be well on your way to finding your perfect partner.

A riotous collection of memoirs which explores the absurd hilarity of modern life and creates a wickedly incisive portrait of an all-too-familiar world. It takes Sedaris from his humiliating bout with obsessive behaviour in 'A Plague of Tics' to the title story, where he is finally forced to face his naked self in the company of lunatics. At this soulful and moving moment, he brushes cigarette ashes from his pubic hair and wonders what it all means. This remarkable journey into his own life follows a path of self-effacement and a lifelong search for identity leaving himself both under suspicion and over dressed.

»Juliet, Naked‹ ist so gut, so lustig und so schräg wie seine Vorgänger ›High Fidelity‹ oder ›About a Boy‹.« Brigitte Nick Hornby tut das, was er am besten kann: Er schreibt über Musik und die Liebe und die Überraschungen, die das Leben für alle bereithält. Tucker Crowe, ehemaliger Rockstar und Ikone einer kleinen Schar glühender Anhänger, lebt zurückgezogen in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt. Seinetwegen stellt Annie im weit entfernten England ihre Beziehung zu Duncan in Frage ... Tucker Crowe, der 1986 kurz vor einem Gig spurlos verschwand, kann kaum glauben, was er im Internet alles über sich lesen muss. Dort tauschen seine glühendsten Fans Informationen aus, nachdem sie alle Stätten seines Schaffens besucht haben, sie lesen seine Songtexte rückwärts und tun noch manch andere merkwürdige Dinge, um Hinweise auf seine Person und seinen Aufenthaltsort zu erhalten. Zu dieser leicht ­verblendeten Community gehört auch Duncan, der mit seiner Freundin Annie an der englischen Ostküste lebt. Annie hat sich nach 15 Jahren einigermaßen an seinen Spleen gewöhnt und lässt ihn gewähren, doch als dann plötzlich, welch eine Sensation!, ein neues Album von Crowe auf den Markt kommt, stellt sie eigenständig eine Kritik des neuen Albums ins Netz. Duncan ist entsetzt. Für ihn ist das der Beweis, wie ignorant Annie ist. Tucker Crowe himself wiederum fühlt sich zum ersten Mal verstanden, und er nimmt Kontakt zu Annie auf ... Von der englischen Ostküste nach Amerika und wieder zurück führt diese Geschichte, in der zwei einsame Menschen ihr altes Leben satthaben und vor einem Neuanfang stehen.

The best place to hide is in a lie... I could never fit in to the life my parents demanded. By the time I was thirteen, it was too much. I ran away to New York City...and found a nightmare that lasted three years. A nightmare that began and ended with a pimp named Luis. Now I am Dirty Anna. Broken, like everything inside me has gone bad. Except that for the first time, I have a chance to start over. Not just with my parents but at school. Still, the rumors follow me everywhere. Down the hall. In classes. And the only hope I can see is in the wide, brightly lit smile of Jackson, the boy next door. So I lie to him. I lie to protect him from my past. I lie so that I don't have to be The Girl Who Went Bad. The only problem is that someone in my school knows about New York. Someone knows who I really am. And it's just a matter of time before the real Anna is exposed...

A Novel of Lady Godiva

We know her name. We know of her naked ride. We don't know her true story. We all know the legend of Lady Godiva, who famously rode naked through the streets of Coventry, covered only by her long, flowing hair. So the story goes, she begged her husband Lord Leofric of Mercia to lift a high tax on her people, who would starve if forced to pay. Lord Leofric demanded a forfeit: that Godiva ride naked on horseback through the town. There are various endings to Godiva's ride, that all the people of Coventry closed their doors and refused to look upon their liege lady (except for ‘peeping Tom') and that her husband, in remorse, lifted the tax. Naked is an original version of Godiva's tale with a twist that may be closer to the truth: by the end of his life Leofric had fallen deeply in love with Lady Godiva. A tale of legendary courage and extraordinary passion, Naked brings an epic story new voice.

Barefoot & Naked on the Banks of the Altamaha River rises and falls with joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, hope and despair. At times, it is governed by a smidgen of faith, other times, mustard seed faith. The stage is set in the deep-south in the era of black and white TVs, rotary phones, party lines, unlocked doors and windows. Small bottle cokes cost five cents, large ones six cents. There were Dime Stores instead of Dollar Stores. The scene is set in motion with a young girl living in an unspoiled world of love, laughter and friendships. The scene-scape moves and changes rapidly. As years pass, this perfect world is blemished by bitterness, anger, and hate as death, adultery, and sickness erode the spirit and cripple the soul. Amid the years were trials and tribulations, flights and fights, and storms that brewed, and, there were some deep shit bipolar times. This was the era of growing up, of love and laughter--the era of innocence. It was life at the highest and life at the lowest ebbs. From southern girl who is nurtured to southern matriarch who nurtures, it is a tale spawning from first light to midnight. It is the eve of a new dawn.


A Cultural History of American Nudism

In 1929, a small group of men and women threw off their clothes and began to exercise in a New York City gymnasium, marking the start of the American nudist movement. While countless Americans had long enjoyed the pleasures of skinny dipping or nude sunbathing, nudists were the first to organize a movement around the idea that exposing the body corrected the ills of modern society and produced profound benefits for the body as well as the mind. Despite hostility and skepticism, American nudists enlisted the support of health enthusiasts, homemakers, sex radicals, and even ministers, and in the process, redefined what could be seen, experienced, and consumed in twentieth-century America. Naked gives a vibrant, detailed account of the American nudist movement and the larger cultural phenomenon of public nudity in the United States. Brian S. Hoffman reflects on the idea of nakedness itself in the context of a culture that wrestles with an inherent sense of shame and conflicting moral attitudes about the body. In exploring the social and legal history of nudism, Hoffman reveals how anxieties about gender, race, sexuality, and age inform our conceptions of nakedness. The book traces the debates about distinguishing deviant sexualities from morally acceptable display, the legal processes that helped bring about the dramatic changes in sexuality in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as the explosion in eroticism that has increasingly defined the modern American consumer economy. Drawing on a colorful collection of nudist materials, films, and magazines, Naked exposes the social, cultural, and moral assumptions about nakedness and the body normally hidden from view and behind closed doors.
