Yeah, okay, I’ll admit it: I clicked on this article in the Baltimore Sun because it had the word “nudist” in the headline. If you prefer to preserve your self-respect, though, read on: I’ll summarize the weirdest/most salacious aspects of the “nude feud” story for you:

+Catherine Holmes just lost a lawsuit against the Maryland Health Society, a nudist camp; as a result, she had to move out of her cabin. She told the Sun that she had wanted to move in the nude, “but it was a little bit cold.”

+Holmes had a history of complaining about sexual activity at the club. Not that she ever actually saw any naked people doing anything untoward while there; but she heard about it.

+Also: she saw a “sexually suggestive sign,” and spotted a member drinking from a “phallic ‘sippy cup,'” whatever that might look like. She was further offended when she spied a fellow member wearing a ring, as the Sun oh-so-delicately puts it, “on his genitals.”

+The club’s case against Holmes is a lot more boring, as it centers on contract disputes and lease language, rather than naked people. You can read all about it here, if you’re so inclined.

+The club tried to bar Holmes from the cabin over the past few months, but she’d just lock the door from the inside and crawl in through the window. Nude? Unclear.

+If you’re interested in signing up, the Maryland Health Society sits on 98 beautifully wooded acres in Davidsonville. It features 25 cabins, a clubhouse, a pool, a bathhouse, and a babbling brook. Annual membership costs $400 for singles, $775 for couples.
