It’s a crying shame that they are gathering virtual dust in that locked portion of your smartphone. They are, after all, art.
News.com.au reports on a racy new campaign from Art Series Hotels called No Robe. And it’s what it sounds like, a program that asks guests to share their nude selfies in the name of artistic endeavor. According to its website, guests who book the No Robe package ($229 per night) will have a camera unit sent to their room.
It’s there that guests will take as many nude pictures of themselves as they like. Choosing one, it will be sent off to an artist who will line draw the image and send to the address given so you can show off to friends or, if you like, keep hidden from view.
The package is available at the group’s seven hotels in Melbourne, Bendigo, Adelaide and Brisbane and is available from May 1 to June 15.
The huge item of note is Art Series Hotels guarantees all of your photos will be deleted immediately after the artist sketches them, assuring you your privacy for this not-so-private moment.
The following video is the hotel’s funny ad for the campaign. Be warned that it does contain NSFW nudity:
And, as the following Instagram post states, those who do take the naked plunge and grab this nudity package are entered to win a free stay:
Will Deague, CEO of Art Series Hotels, explains to News.com.au: “Art Series Hotels are passionate about supporting the arts and delivering unique art inspired experiences for our guests and welcoming them with their creativity. The No Robe campaign certainly goes back to the history of the nude form in art and self-expression.”
The CEO also added: “We want to encourage our guests to dare to be different and bold — to celebrate their individuality and feel liberated in their own skin. It’s about stripping away hang-ups and be free — nude or not!”
In other nude news, Original Group promised its second couples-only nude cruise, which is set for April 2018.
So if you find that you pack extremely light and love the feel of the open air on your entire body then you have some tantalizing options around the world.
If you are brave enough to bare all, it may just win you a free trip. Maybe then you will keep it on.
