I'm surprised at the co-ordinator asking about nudity concerns. In the 5 years I co-ordinatoed for Toronto, I know I would never have asked that question. It raises issues that will be magnificently handled by the B.E. Facilitator as the workshop unfolds. Asking if a prospect has any concerns is appropriate. Let the concerns come from the client

BE used to do the workshops frequently in Dallas and Houston, but I think the facilitators moved on to do other things and now there is no one willing to host or organize the meetings. I haven't heard of one in Dallas in a long time either. 

I use a modified philosophy of BE in my sessions, and I know a lot of other guys do too.

I am a massage therapist and see plenty of nude bodies and I know I would love this workshop .... on the table would be well as off,
I had someone do body electric work on me years ago....It was  an absolutely amazing feeling I had never experienced in my life.
I looked at the schedule and can't believe Tulsa is the one closest to me here in Houston.

Body Electric does a great job of making the participants feel good about themselves before anyone is nude. No matter how shy or self conscientious anyone may be, the process is very gentle and affirming. I think you would enjoy and feel comfortable in this seeting Louis.

I look forward to hear about your Body Electric experience.
I would love to attend a workshop someday, but I am one of those guys who is not comfortable being nude in a group.
Have fun.

Ken, I totally agree.  I worked one summer at Easton Mountain in Upstate New York northeast of Albany; they hold throughout the summer all the three workshops on Body Electric.  I witnessed the transformation of the men during that time.  Due to the fact that I was working there, I did not have the opportunity to do the workshops.  That is why I have signed up to do this first one here in Cleveland.  Thanks Ken for our kind remarks.

Great comment, Marlin.  You're right on about the consistent influence of the USA Calvinistic heritage.  It just takes gathering men together nude for mutual touch to start breaking that barrier down.

Floyd,   I definitely will share what I learn from the Body Electric workshop here in Cleveland on October 10 and 11; they have contacted me as they knew I had a massage table and want to borrow it.  From what I understand, there will be 20 men.   I laughed when the local coordinator called for me to make payment.  He said, "Do you have any trouble being nude I front of other men?"  Of course, my retort to his was "Heavens no."  In fact, I tend to be a nudist and am usually nude all the time in my apartment.  Whenever I go somewhere where there is clothing optional, I never wear any. In my opinion, the male body is the most beautiful object in the world. I did read an article that said that the US is the worst country in the world when it comes to one man's body touching another man's body.  Why?  It goes back to those Puritanical ideas years ago that the body is dirty as is sex.  Well, that is why we are all taking the Body Electric to prove them wrong :)

Martin, will this be your first BE workshop? Enjoy and share your experience and thoughts here.

I will be attending the two day Body Electric workshop here in Cleveland, OH from Oct.  10-11.
