Jaybird smoker

One of the odder 1960s nudist magazines was an outfit called "Jaybirding," 
as in "naked as a jaybird."  They even had articles on the jaybird lifestyle.  
This photo of a man smoking came from on of their issues.



  1. Kind of weird to have smokers when it had already been known for a couple decades how dangerous smoking was, and nudists are generally health nuts.

    1. You make a good point about nudism promoting healthy lifestyles. Even though it was already known that smoking was harmful, the anti-smoking movement didn't really get going until the Surgeon General's Report of 1964. This photo was made around that time, probably a year or two later. Obviously, this guy didn't get the message, and almost 60 years later some people still smoke.
