Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNote — Skyclad

My response to a question about being skyclad. Taken from Wicca: General Chat from the Timerift Forums

If you are going to be embarrassed, don't do it.

If you are somewhere that has anti-nudity laws and there is the slightest chance that you will be seen, don't do it. Don't count on 'the cover of darkness," white untanned skin shows up exceptionally well at night, especially a human bottom.

Any naturist will tell you that nudity does not equal sex, although it might be a while before your body learns that. So a little excitement is perfectly natural at first.

Away from the city and the concrete and asphalt, it can get a lot cooler at night. Use common sense, don't get yourself chilled. Believe me, the gods will understand.

Night flying bugs are attracted to light colors such as untanned skin. Bugs are also attracted by the carbon dioxide in your breath and the smell of your sweat. Move around a lot and there will be more bugs.

Do some scouting before hand, make sure there are no varmints that might feel threatened by you. Respect them.

No clothes means no protection from some of the most basic things. Even sitting crosslegged on the ground can give you a nasty set of scrapes and scratches in places you don't normally think about. Take something to sit on.

Put your clothes in a safe place so they don't get varmints or bugs in them when you are not using them.

Now with all that said, I get a real rush out of ritual in general, but even more so when there isn't clothing between me and the gods. There is something very primal about it. Singing to the moon under a sky of stars, or chanting to the sun as it rises, there is nothing quite like it.
