This naked dinner aims to fight negative body image and push women outside of their comfort zone.

Body image is an ongoing struggle for many women and it doesn’t discriminate – women of any age, body type and relationship status can feel self conscious about the way that they look. In an attempt to fight poor body image, Gypsy Artemis and Lauren Monty are hosting the Shameless! Fully Naked Dinner in the hope that it will encourage women to feel more confident, celebrate their beauty and push themselves outside of their comfort zone.

Let Yourself Be Seen

Inviting women to join them for the ‘out there’ dinner experience , the duo say that they were inspired to host it after seeing the impact of conventional ideas of beauty on the way women perceived themselves. “Most women have something about their body they would like to change…maybe a little something that doesn’t quite fit our culture’s idea of ‘beautiful’,” they said. “By being naked, we are allowing ourselves to be fully seen in all the ways: physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally…as we leave ourselves little to hide behind.” Guests will be served a gluten free, vegan meal and the event is strictly alcohol free.

Getting Personal

Lauren’s high school experience, and her attendance at a ‘naked dinner’ last year, inspired her to get involved in hosting the event. “I was so severely tormented in High School because of my weight,” she said. “That created deep wounds that were compounded with layer after layer of shame and self loathing from the brainwashing of our society telling us how we SHOULD look. I had the pleasure of attending a naked dinner in 2018 and it was such an incredibly liberating experience.”

With the rise of social media, and the growing prevalence of filters and photo editing, the pressure to look perfect can be overwhelming. Events like these offer the chance for women to reclaim a sense of confidence and support each other in embracing their flaws and insecurities.

The dinner will be held on February 16th from 5:45pm at the Umina Beach Yoga Studio, with tickets available from Eventbrite.

  • No, I honestly dont think it would be very comfortable and would make me more aware of how I look.

  • I’m not sure. I think maybe if they were people I didn’t know and everyone else was naked it wouldn’t be so bad. If it was friends they’d need to be people I feel comfortable with.

  • Probably not. Not sure if I would be comfortable eating naked. I dont do it home so I doubt I would do it out.

  • I went to Japan once, where female only naked bathing is the norm. It did wonders for my body confidence. It really helped just seeing with my own eyes that women come in all shapes and sizes, and my goodness, there are some weird variations out there! I used to worry about how I looked, but I don’t now. My body is not perfect, especially after two children, but I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin, and my husband is so thankful for my body confidence. Not sure I’d want to do this with people I see in everyday life!

  • Hmmmm, I don’t get the concept, surely there are other ways to be yourself without showing all of yourself, your private bits are your private bits, I’m sure they are not going there because they feel their vagina is subject to ridicule or some such so why not cover at least that for heaven’s sake.

  • Nah, I don’t feel the need to do that. Very unnatural.
    I don’t agree with what they say “By being naked, we are allowing ourselves to be fully seen in all the ways: physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally”. Because who is really allowing him/herself to be fully seen emotionally, spiritually and mentally by strangers at a dinner party like this ? So why then is there a need to show your physical nakedness to strangers
