In Chapter One of my novel The “Volunteer”, Dr. Lorraine Slater gives Danielle several examples of casual nudity in popular culture in her pitch for her sociology project. While The “Volunteer” is fiction, the things cited by Dr. Slater are real.
Of course, in the novel, it all starts with Andrew Martinez, who has his own Wikipedia page here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Martinez
Brown University does host a Nudity Week, usually in late September or early October: http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/19624/
ESPN Magazine does publish an annual body issue which has its own website here: http://espn.go.com/espn/feature/story/_/page/body/espn-magazine-body-issue
The Naked and Afraid TV show has been very successful on the Discovery Channel: http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/naked-and-afraid/
Dating Naked is still airing on VH1: http://www.vh1.com/shows/dating-naked
And Buying Naked aired on TLC Network: http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/buying-naked/
Including such real world examples in Dr. Slater’s justification of her sociology experiment firmly sets the novel in today’s world and should make for a more enjoyable reading experience. The “Volunteer” is available in both paperback and Kindle editions on Amazon and other retailers: https://www.amazon.com/Volunteer-D-Jonathan-ebook/dp/B01HAM329Q/
