Ah, youth! Ah, urbanness! The combination of the two is intoxicating, eh?

Well it is for some of us. If you are one of the few, the proud, the "not too proud to pay for it" crowd, then this page is for you. Yes, this is the page where we ask you to pay a small subscription fee to see big pictures of the University of Michigan jocks (and a few jockettes, believe it or not) running naked through the streets of Ann Arbor in their annual rite of spring, the University of Michigan Naked Mile.

We've got nearly a hundred photos to show you from 1998, and we've divided them into five groups:

Each group can be viewed for free in small (thumbnail) size. To view in large size, you must be a member (except group 1, which is free).

We also ran nude in this race in 1999. We're working on those photos and hope to have them up by the end of June. In the meantime, you can see samples and read interviews here.

In the chart below, click on any photo. You will be taken to a page where you can see small copies of other photos in the same category. Then you can move on to large versions of the same photos (if you're a subscriber).

Thank you for your contribution, thank you! God bless you! God bless America! Thank God we live in a free country, where students, jocks, admirers, and dirty old men like me can join together in a common struggle, freeing ourselves of the bondage of clothing and societal inhibition. You are truly, truly wonderful!!

Unless, of course, you are one of the homophobic assholes who tried to assault photographers, including myself, who were taking pictures of people with pen ises such as yourself. Details here. Get over your fears, man! Get over yourself! Grow up a little! You enjoyed looking at the women who ran naked; why get upset about someone enjoying you? Peace, dude -- I came in peace! I meant you no harm! Kindly return the favor.

Check out the photos of that march (scroll down to photo #6) and decide for yourself.

If so, does that mean he's on the same Extremely Naked Sports Tour as I am??
Scary, dude! But welcome to the Tour!!

(1999 note: Yes, it is. I had no idea he'd travel to be nude in public, too!)
