I have a friend who watches Naked and Afraid.
Personally, I’ve never seen the show.
Once Survivor started giving me anxiety, I had to give up on all Survivor-esque shows including Naked and Afraid.
For someone who frequents nudist resorts this might seem strange to you.
Obviously I don’t object to nudity, so why drag my heels?
It’s because I dislike bugs.
One thing you can be sure of, my vacations at Burning Man seldom involve bugs.
They involve a lot of sunblock, and I’m wearing clothes at the Burn (usually), but no bugs.
I can just picture my skin getting fried by the sun and chewed up by bugs out in the wilderness.
I get WELTS from mosquitoes.
Do you suppose Canadian mosquitoes are more polite than American mosquitoes when they suck your blood?
The last thing I want is to get naked in a swamp with an army of mosquitoes just waiting to eat me.
I can barely sit my naked ass down on a redwood tree to relax for fear of splinters and dirt, what makes anyone think I could survive in the wilderness with nothing to protect my fragile body from the elements?
I’ll take gross food eating with Bear Grylls over naked in a jungle every day.
They must be paying these people lots of money.
