Volleyball


This guy is about to play volleyball, and normally in my world that would make him a nudist.  He looks more like a model or a bodybuilder than a nudist, though.  No ordinary man is built like that.

  1. There are several games I'd rather play with him...than volleyball.

  2. Je ne te comprends pas Jerry, les culturistes ne peuvent-ils pas ête nudistes?

    I don't understand you Jerry, can't bodybuilders be nudists?

  3. For once there is no sportswear on which to comment... other than, perhaps, to observe that any number of gymnasia - coming from a Greek word γυμνός (naked) from the verb γυμνάζω (gymnazo), meaning "to train naked" - in the Victorian period where training as well as indoor games - such as volleyball and badminton - were often undertaken in the nude. I have a contemporary illustration of a French gym in the late Victorian period where all the men are starkers, so we know this to be historical fact rather than titillating fancy. A naked volleyball player might well have had this splendid specimen's physique in 1890.

    1. The Olympic Games of antiquity were played naked, I don't see where the harm is.

    2. This particular player was a Ferrero model. See below.

  4. It turns out that Bryan B. recognized this as Michel Belloucy in a Jean Ferrero photo. Ferrero was known to work with some of his models (and occasional bystanders) in French nudist resorts. Thanks, Bryan!
