It’s not charged as clothes optional but it’s… click is as accepted as it’s anticipated. The bunch this year will probably be about 50,000 people and during the day around young nudist pics will be nude and around 60% will be at least partially naked. The percentage of naked people is higher in the early mornings before people get in their costumes. Nude people are fully accepted and, actually, not even noticed considerably because the costumes that so a lot of people wear are so creative and outstanding as is the giant artwork and fire-art which is what the event is really all about.
The occasion isn’t for everyone. You camp in an extremely unpleasant desert for a week and everything you need to eat, drink and stay healthy and comfortable has to be brought in by you…nothing except ice and coffee is for sale on the desert.
The folks in our group bring some amazing costumes, as do most attendees, but we also go around nude when we are just seeing the graphics. Burningman is probably THE greatest mix of clothed and naked people on the planet during the week it runs. (From 1 week before Labor Day to Labor Day.)
We can honestly say that we’ve never had, seen or even heard of any negative comments or reactions to the nudity from the textiles at the event.
