An unidentified 18-year-old woman who took time out of a cycling tour to spend Saturday night at the Sunsport Gardens Nudist Resort in Loxahatcheea Florida was hospitalized early Sunday with stab wounds, according to local police.
While exploring the resort’s 40 acres on Sunday morning, the woman went out on a nature trail. A person she described as “young” confronted and stabbed her without warning or provocation.
Fortunately her wounds aren’t serious. There were no witnesses and it was unknown whether the assailant lived at the resort.
This is shocking news, not only for the young lady but for the whole naturist movement, which prides itself on the safety, friendliness and usually crime-free nature of any naturist gathering.
However there is nothing to indicate that this was anything other than an entirely random attack, totally unconnected with the nudist environment in which it took place. So, unless evidence to the contrary emerges, let’s just send best wishes for a speedy recovery to the victim, and hope that the authorities find, and punish, the culprit swiftly.
A bevy of models, Playboy playmates and stars of reality shows, feature movies and video games are asking a federal judge to award them more than $1.6 million in compensation for the use of their images without permission or compensation.
The case has been brought against Caliente Resort and Spa, a popular resort in Land O’ Lakes Florida, who, it is alleged included their photos on websites and other promotional items and continued with the unauthorised use even after being sent a “cease and desist” letter in September.
The case continues. Read more. . .
