Overexposure

Walking home from work in mid-June, I encountered the annual Vancouver nude bike ride.  About 100 naked people rode down Robson Street with or without body paint.   It was fun to watch the tourists on the street react.

I later mentioned this event to H. who is Japanese.    She laughed and said it wouldn’t happen in Japan.   Women in that country couldn’t even let their bra straps show through their blouses. 

H. then told me about a Japanese friend of hers.  This woman felt undressed even when she took off her glasses.  The friend got contact lenses after years of wearing glasses.  She then felt so exposed that she bought a pair of glasses with plain glass in them and wore them over her contacts.
