Time for those kids to go off to college, and get tossed into the Program all over again!
Here we're going to explore some ideas for how to get a Program like concept working in the university. Some of these ideas might work, some might not.
This page hopes to be a sort of 'collective list of writer's tips' for 'Naked in College' stories. Hopefully soon the NiS will have a similar page for 'Naked at Work', and maybe one for 'Naked in genre' - each collecting tips and ideas from writers and fans to encourage future writers.
Additional suggestions are welcome and desired.
If you have an idea, send it in.
If you have ideas, send them in. Some I had are:
At some point in their four years, the student will get picked for the Program. Once they are, it becomes a requirement to complete it if they want a degree from Naked-U, or if they want to transfer their units within the next 5 years (so if you drop out for 5 years, you escape, but at what cost?).
This one probably won't work unless society is really pushing the Program.
In a way this idea is the utopian flip side of Idea 1, 3, or 4. Where Idea 1 'blackmails' you into it, Idea 5 assumes a world where you want to get in. This model works best in the 'Utopian line' of the Program, but with a little creativity an author might be able to flip it around, somehow.
And you *know* that a few others may well make volunteering for a week in the Program during "Hell Week" part of being initiated into the fraternity/sorority.
I can also see various grants etc that would be available to students who were willing to do a *term* in the Program.
And some courses that might require you to be in the Program for the term.
On the other hand, at college, there are apt to be more "I'm just going to go naked today" folks. Especially guys who forgot to do the laundry :-)
So I can see a need for an armband or something to distinguish the Program participants from the casual nudists.
After all, it's a lot harder to separate "school activities" from "non-school" activities at college. I'd not be surprised if it was "on campus, and at all school activities off campus". Or even "at all times".
Evil Thought: If someone is enrolled in several of those classes in the same term, the odds are against the *assigned* nude weeks lining up. Which means they could wind up spending quite a few weeks nude (and subject to Reasonable Requests).
True. Or you could assume they limit your ability to enroll in a lot of them. I made several of them have the high numbers typical of upper division classes to 'imply' that they probably have a lot of entry pre-reqs (though I didn't list it that way specifically - wanted it to really just be an idea mine to be warped to the needs of anyone inspired by it).
If making pledgers "volunteer" for the Program during Hell Week is allowable, then if I was the college admin, I'd restrict Program participation that week *to* the pledges who had "volunteered".
It'd save wear and tear on innocent students.
Other likely "special rules" for Hell Week:
A pledge can back out without gaining extra Program time. But he or she won't get any credit for the time spent either.
Because of this, the fraternities & sororities are allowed extra leeway. They can make it a condition of joining that the pledge consider certain types of requests reasonable.
In other words, a Pledge might be told that they had to allow requests for oral sex. Barring unusual circumstances (say a request for a blow job from a guy whose cock was filthy) they'd have a choice between doing as "requested" or not being accepted in the fraternity/sorority.
The Administration keeps an eye on on this as do the Program officials. But since the pledges *can* opt out, it's tolerated.
Anybody trying to force things (or trying to have "secret ceremonies" that are dangerous or involuntary will get their house suspended at best). At worst, they could get prosecuted.
There is some speculation that the administration feels that allowing this sort of "out in the open" hazing is better than the drinking binges or dangerous hazings.
Of course, there will be houses that *don't* do thios sort of thing. As well as ones that push the limits. And everything in between.
Checking out what sort of things the house you want to pledge to has done in previous years is a *really* good idea. :-)
