Put It Away, Nude Flakers!

Its nude people with psoriasis! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

Its nude people with psoriasis! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

I really don’t know how this one slipped by me. Apparently, police on an island resort in Hainan Island, China, have started cracking down on nude sunbathers – many of who have psoriasis!

South China Morning Post reported on the news, saying that flakers started appearing at the resort’s Sanya beach in 2002. Fast forward to today and there are up to 500 middle-aged men flopping around the beach per day, many of who “believe the sun’s rays heal skin diseases such as psoriasis”.

Another Chinese state news agency, Xinhua, quoted an appropriately named Mr Wang as saying that “the menΒ were not at the beach to expose themselves but to treat their skin diseases through sunbathing.” Unfortunately, they didn’t buy it and told him to put his wang away.

I don’t believe that people with psoriasis are being targeted. I’m sure dangly bits of all colours are banned, not just red ones. But it’s saddening to hear that fellow brother and sister flakers are getting chased around by police just for trying to get a bit of sun on their sexy bits.

‘It’s not Chinese’

Nude sunbathers were apparently condemned by Hainan communist party chief Luo Baoming, who said it was “un-Chinese, anti-tradition and uncivilised.” He also said it was not consistent with China’s cultural traditions and even “corrupted public morals.”

Err… sorry? I might have agreed with the ban if there were horny, 70 year-old flakers masturbating furiously on the beach, but they’re just trying to catch some rays man. Don’t you know they’re good for us, Luo?

And the whole argument about it being against culture. Well, smoking opium after your shift at work was pretty normal back in the day, why not bring it back. As was killing missionaries by a “thousand cuts”.

Culture isn’t static, it shifts and evolves all the time. It’s a lived experience, and that means societal norms and beliefs, be they about public nudism or psoriasis, are always fluctuating. That’s probably the reason why they ventured out in the first place, because they feel more comfortable about having psoriasis and have more awareness about it. Can you imagine a flaker having the guts to get naked in public in the Middle Ages, when they were considered lepers?

I think Chinese culture is great, but this time I’m on the side of flesh. Naked flesh.

About the Author

I'm just an average 28 year old living with psoriasis. Over the last decade, I've tried everything, from real snake poison to rubbing banana peels over my body. I've finally found an approach that's working for me, and I'm sharing it with all the flakers out there. But Psoriasis Blob is not about one man, it's a growing community of great, red people.

    No problem πŸ™‚ If ingesting ACV works for you then dietary changes that raise alkalinity levels “should” also help. Good luck!

    πŸ™‚ I’ve used different coal-tar based shampoos, but not MG217 or PsoriaTrax. I will try them for sure. I’ve started drinking ACV and i am going to see how it’s going to work for me. If it didn’t work i’ll try applying it to my scalp. Thank you again. πŸ™‚

    Hi! Your recommendations are great. My brother who has psoriasis on his arms has started using apple vinegar and it’s working. πŸ™‚ I have psoriasis on my scalp and it’s really annoying. Do you have any tips about that? Thank you.

      Hi Vess! Cheers for the nice comment. Like most natural remedies, using ACV is all a matter of consistency. Hope he continues to see improvements! In terms of scalp psoriasis, you can try ACV too, I’ve heard about people diluting it and applying onto the scalp overnight. Have you tried using a coal-tar based shampoo? The brands I can vouch for are MG217 and PsoriaTrax. They’re a godsend!
