Only Two Things - Nudity & Nude Golf International

.
Tonight on "Only Two Things" we're going to lay things bare... so to speak... on the topic of nudity.

Several days ago I came upon an announcement for a very unique golf tournament, Nude Golf International.  It's an annual event that takes place in New Zealand and yes, as the name implies, the dress code is quite... um, relaxed. ~ With the majority of players opting to play entirely in the buff there'll be no need to post rules regarding skirt length... and there certainly won't be a cargo pants controversy either.

The 2011 tournament is coming up on February 11, at the Wairau Valley Golf Club in Marlborough, New Zealand's picturesque wine producing region.

In ancient times, athletes competed nude at the Olympics and Pan-Hellenic Games in almost all disciplines, however today, nudity tends to make people uneasy... to say the least... particularly when it involves an individual who is not classically beautiful.  Earlier today I asked friends and contacts on the social networks if they would ever consider playing in a nude golf tournament.  Responses included numerous jokes, and replies that varied between "willing to give it a try" to "why on earth would anyone want to?"... with quite a few "it would depend on who else was playing" variations thrown in.

Tonight on "Only Two Things" we'll be welcoming the founder and organizer of Nude Golf International, Kay Hannam, to talk about her unusual tournament... why people participate, and how people react to it. Kay and her partner run Wai-natur Naturist Park, a clothes-free resort so she's uniquely positioned to speak on the subject of nudity, and keeping with the nudity theme we'll also be talking to award winning golf artist Paul Milosevich, whose work hangs in many national museums and a number of golf venues, including the USGA Museum, The PGA of America and the World Golf Hall of Fame.  He'll be speaking about his beautiful and evocative series of female nudes called "The Golf Widows".

It promises to be a provocative and interesting show and and we'd love to have you join the conversation with comment or questions... on-air... by using our call-in number, which is: 917-889-9592...  or, weigh in at the chat room.  So join us for "Only Two Things" tonight on Blog Talk Radio. We'll be live at the Sport City Chefs channel from 9:30 - 10:30 ET.
