There is (was?) an artist named Frederick S. Fudala, somewhere in upstate New York, who (a long time ago) was on deviantart and created this drawing which I “embedded” into “‘Tami Smithers Was Here’” on the writingsofleviticus site. It’s called “Druuna’s Ascent”, a tribute to the graphic novel character created by Paolo Serpieri. As I recall Mr. Fudala’s original comment was: “I picture Druuna, having been stripped by a gang of thugs, escaping by scaling this cliff, only to find herself thrust into yet another peril which she will have to deal with while naked.” It fits in with Tami’s plight in general, and in particular her scaling the cliff to get away from teenage toughs at the end of Part 29 of “‘Tami Smithers Was Here’”. Fred, I’ve been trying to find you for years, please contact me!
Blanke Schande College, in California, has two campuses, one in Olive Beach (San Diego County), and one in Alturas (in the far northeast corner of the state). It is like any other small college, except that female students are required to be naked at all times. It’s not what you might think. Once they get over their initial embarrassment, it’s the women who have the advantage. The men can look but they can’t touch unless specifically given permission.
Blanke Schande life is not one big orgy. There isn’t any more sexual activity than at other colleges. “The female nudity policy is not about sex,” says the college president, Eleanor Grimes Ferguson (who does all official business in the nude). “It is about creating strong, independent women, and men who are strong enough to respect them.”
As far as I know, Blanke Schande is a unique concept. It was created by “johnnycancer” in 2002 using photos of clothed men and naked women doing everyday things as if the women were as clothed as the men. (It’s actually pretty hard to find such photos.) With johnnycancer’s encouragement I wrote these initial stories about BSC to set the tone. Others have since written about it since. Some are on Amazon.
