Israeli swimming champ Guy Barnea is crowdfunding for a movement to create discreet opportunities for people to swim naked. […]
He explains: “After that photoshoot, we decided that this is just a fun experience that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy. I’ve been a swimmer my whole life and I have to tell you — naked swimming is something else.”
How can you help Barnea in his quest for discreet public freedom? You can join his Headstart fundraising campaign, of course! But don’t confuse this with a ploy to make a quick buck.
“It’s important for me to emphasize: The goal of the project is not to make money, but to allow people to experience the most liberating and natural experience,” writes Barnea, who stripped down in 2015 for a Yedioth Ahronoth photo shoot of nude Israeli professional athletes.
Barnea even gives a little incentive in the name of the cause. Gifts for joining the campaign include anything from a free shirt to an invitation to join Barnea and his friends on a private yacht. Donate a mere ₪500 ($142) and get a free swimming lesson with the Olympian himself — with swimsuits on, we presume.
