Freelocalsex - Nude speed dating

This week, in the name of journalism, I was sat stark naked in a private room at The Exhibit in Balham.I was there alongside 30 other single men and women, all with their bits, boobs and balls hanging out. No, this wasn’t the annual meeting for London’s unofficial nudist club, but the UK’s first naked speed dating event, brought to you by the 33-year-old founder of Date In A Dash, Rob Ryall.Women are also more flirty with their clothes off, there’s no awkwardness.

To book a naked speed dating evening, you need to be really proud of your body.

‘The demand for the male tickets was incredible, it was the fastest selling speed dating I’ve ever done. Generally it’s the other way around, you struggle to get the guys in.’ But, let’s get to the stuff you really want to know about, shall we?

In our pre-event interview, I ask Ryall, who has a girlfriend, whether this was just a big ploy to get a bunch of women together so that he could ogle our naked bodies.

‘For me, naked speed dating is just a really quirky and fun way to meet people’, says Ryall.

I said yes to three men in total and matched with two, one of which I took home that evening. Since then, I’ve had a sex offer from one — we didn’t actually match but exchanged numbers on the night — which I politely declined, and I’ve been contacted by another, who found me via Twitter.

The latter was very sweet and asked me out for dinner, but his Twitter profile didn’t have a photo and I can’t remember his face, so I said no to that one, too.

Metro bloggers Miranda Kane and Bibi Lynch co-host the show, chatting to a different guest about all things sex and relationships each week.

Think good cop bad cop – but with more handcuff action.

‘The idea came from the popular TV show Naked Attraction.

I’ve been doing speed dating for seven years and we’ve had great success with it, but physical attraction is so important. ‘People coming to this event are very similar, in terms of their outlook on life and interests, they’re going to be very confident people.

‘You get the initial looks out of the way first, but then it’s just general conversation that you would have on a regular date.’ Gemma agrees: ‘The guys have been really respectful. The conversation hasn’t revolved around us being naked, either.
