Naked Lesbian Epee & Sabre Fencers? Yes!

I always try to appreciate the simple pleasures in life, like the pale skinned girl with long red hair who jogged past me today, twice. Thanks to Kathz from Quaker Fencer I found part of my fencing education that had been missing: watching lesbian sabre fencers fight naked.

The Swiss HIV awareness campaign, reported in the BBC, uses naked female fencers and nude male hockey players to get across the message: no action without protection. This epee poster is going on my wall, and probably on a T-shirt to wear at the next fencing competition. If you go to the Swiss site, you can send posters of lesbian or gay naked athletes as an e-card to whoever you want. If only I had know about that before Mother's Day!

The site also offers a look at the Swiss TV spot, or you can download it here. After seeing the sparks flying between these lesbian sabre fencers set to stirring music, my naked fencing home movies seem sadly redundant.

For those interested in lesbian pirates, or fans of Boobs Ahoy, I recommend taking a trip to Switzerland; they seem to up to some very interesting training over there.

I've already watched the commercial about 5 times - I just can't figure out how to make it BIGGER!

kathz said...

It's tiny on my work computer too and I can't even download it on the one at home. Have you seen the film about the making of the commercial yet? I only managed to get it in German.

If you go to the website and play the spot, on the right there are options to download either in MPEG or Quicktime - the size options are reversed - to get the 4.5 MPEG, click on the 2 MPEG link. Haven't found the making of yet but would appreciate any more links you can find.

Try the same site www.stopaids.ch/stopaids.php and hit campaign and then spot - and you get options of TV or Making Of. Well, it worked in the office.

Hitting Media also gives further options. Hope you find it. I don't think too much about what I'm doing when I navigate a site - it's all a bit intuitive.

Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth! oooh - Naked sports people. How can you go wrong?

I would still rather see people fencing in Zorro outfits, though. **sigh** One day...

Is it wrong that I got turned on by the picture of naked fencers meant to warn me about the dangers of unprotected sex?
