Israeli swimming champ Guy Barnea is crowdfunding for a movement to create discreet opportunities for people to swim naked. […]
He explains: â€œAfter that photoshoot, we decided that this is just a fun experience that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy. Iâ€™ve been a swimmer my whole life and I have to tell you â€” naked swimming is something else.â€
How can you help Barnea in his quest for discreet public freedom? You can join hisÂ Headstart fundraising campaign, of course! But donâ€™t confuse this with a ploy to make a quick buck.
â€œItâ€™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,â€ writes Barnea, who stripped down in 2015 for aÂ Yedioth Ahronoth photo shootÂ 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 â‚ª500 ($142) and get a free swimming lesson with the Olympian himself â€” with swimsuits on, we presume.
