    I have to think this one over about eating in the buff.

    And that comes from a former dickdancer guy who walked around bars in his bbing posers and briefs. Guess I am confident in myself.

    Around the house, I cook in gym shorts and no shirt. Guess I'm half-way there. Thanks for sharing the news article. I do love French food!!!

    Going to pass on this one, eating while naked does not equal sexy to me. I can separate those two.

    The poor staff who has to clean the chairs.

    I once co-hosted a formal Thanksgiving dinner for 12 in Minneapolis. Formal because I wore a black bow tie - and not a stitch else. Nor did the guests, all gay guys from a social group to which I belonged.

    In preparing the table I placed a folded white towel on each dining chair. Which were upholstered in a brocade cushioned fabric, so essential they remained clean. It’s SOP for naturists (nudists) to sit on a towel, never directly on furniture. I would presume this restaurant will provide the towels, and not expect their customers to arrive with them draped over their arms, or in a gym bag.

    Saw some eating-in-the-nude at the breakfast buffet line at Island House in Key West. I'm a bit of an exhibitionist and like seeing naked guys, but I have to agree, seeing a bunch of dicks brush down the buffet wasn't a pretty sight.

    Yep I agree with the majority on this one. I love being in a naked environment, and I definitely plan to hit up a naked bar when in Paris next summer. But eating dinner with a bunch of naked French people just seems plain unappetizing.

    My favorite gay bathhouse (when I was single) was Club Lauderdale here. Actually not its business name, but how it's commonly known. A bit upscale and expensive, not your often rundown, sleazy bathhouse.

    On weekends at 1 PM they would serve a poolside outdoor lunch buffet. And a very complete buffet it was, including a carving station with a guy in full chef's whites. A bit incongruous, with everyone else stark naked, lounging around the outdoor pool. Except in the serving line.

    I used to laugh at the announcement over the PA: "The buffet is now open. The buffet is now open. Gentlemen, please wear at least a towel in the serving line."

    And everyone did. Who wants to spill hot gravy on his dick? icon_eek.gif

    No thanks. Unless it's the Sean Cody annual reunion dinner.

    Besides our private nude club affairs, I've also eaten in the buff publicly in Key West. May again this January, when we have our next reservations.

    As for escargot, I first had it in 1979 in Communist East Berlin. A "friendship" dinner among the occupiers of divided Berlin, a division still in effect over 30 years after the end of WWII. Officers from the 4 powers of America, Britain, France, and the Soviet Union.

    The Soviets (Russians mostly) hosted this one. Terrible meal, the coffee undrinkable. And one of the features was snail toast, the escargot all minced. I didn't want to eat it, but it would have been undiplomatic to refuse it.

    It actually wasn't bad, compared to the rest of the awful meal. And back in the States I started to ask for escargot, and today enjoy it. I figured if it didn't kill or gag me that time, I could have it again. It's the only personal benefit I can think from my experience with the Cold War. Oh, and cheap wooden Christmas oraments from East Berlin. Along with lots of stories like this one.

    I love escargot. My mom used to prepare it and served them in large shells. Delicious! I was introduced to the at about 10 years old.
    It surprised my parents that I loved escargot and mussels, despite being a really picky eater as a kid.

    BINGO! Yes, my parents called me a picky eater, too. I wish they could have lived longer, especially my Father. To sit down to dinner with them, and demonstrate what I eat now. (And of course for many other reasons, I miss them greatly)

    Today I eat a lot of things my Dad did, that I thought were weird and yucky as a kid. Like mussels. And raw oysters. Hell, he'd buy a bucket of them in water, live, and had a chopper thing. He'd split open the shell, which kills them, and he'd slurp it down.

    As a kid I'd run out of the kitchen. Today raw oysters are one of my favorites. Dad would be so surprised to see what I eat. But then I knew by my mid-40s that I was turning into my Father. Gastronomically and in many other ways.

    My Dad would eat anything. It was part of his military survival training. But one night we were out at an Indonesian restaurant and I wanted to try shark fin soup. How bad could it be? Pretty horrible it turns out, soapy tasting, oily. I couldn't eat it. My father smiled indulgently and slid it over to his own placemat. He took a taste and paused. Then he slid it away from him. LOL Nothing was said about the soup.
