London police reported the naked man, who appeared to be in his 30s or 40s, climbed atop the bronze statue of the 19th-century duke of Cambridge in the late autumn chill.  It was around noon when he balanced himself on the duke’s head.

The man came down the statute when police and emergency services surrounded the area. The statute is near several government buildings, memorial statutes, including the prime minister’s official residence. Scotland Yard reported the man without clothes was detained under Britain’s Mental Health Act.

Nudity is a form of freedom of self-expression and many are fascinated by it as part of radical culture. Public nudity liberates a country when people tolerate it with an open mind. An area that tolerates public nudity, such as San Francisco, becomes a safe haven for political activists, and immigrants from all over the world. Public nudity has a spirit of liberation and celebration of life.

Some people watching the naked man in London might have been struck with creativity and humor.  The naked man likely made people’s heads spin. Nudity and artistic sexual self-expression challenges inhibitions and inspires people to shed a shield of physical body shame or fear.

People used to seeing people in the nude, such as when they attend a Burning Man festival in Nevada, face life-changing and heart-warming experiences. Some find nudity to be a cultural progress. If the situation were to happen in the U.S., people might support the naked London man by claiming public nudity to be an inalienable right.

Some say public nudity in the U.S. is protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution as a right to freedom of speech and self-expression. The 14th amendment, which guarantees equal protection rights, may also come into play when naked people are not treated the same as clothed people.

    i would love to live in a “safe haven” where there is a “celebration of life” and such things as “body shame” and “fear” might be banished. however, as a resident of san francisco’s castro neighborhood which is in the midst of a social experiment involving public nudity, i can tell you the scenario is anything but ideal, with numerous creepy old white men wearing wigs and sunglasses and waving their genitals covered in oils and adorned with “jewelry” at everyone. it’s not pretty. i hope someday the world you envision comes true, but for now i am against public nudity. north of san francisco is the small counter-culture town of Bolinas. Known as a “hippy” town, it embraced public nudity until the same thing happened… too many weirdos and then several women were raped. that’s the world we live in, sad to say.
