You didn't forget about Nude Recreation Week, did you? It's a celebration that takes place every year to introduce newcomers to the world of clothing-optional vacations. To inspire you to take it all off, nudist clubs and resorts across the country are throwing concerts, Open House barbecues, even games of "Dress Poker." You wouldn't be alone....according to the American Association for Nude Recreation, the number of nudists has increased 76 percent in the last ten years. We asked spokesperson Mary Lou Aguirre on the line to give us the skinny on why nude vacations are so popular.
