* Creator/DrewBarrymore was once quoted as saying, "I'll drive in Ireland and park my car and run out into the field and rip all my clothes off and just run in the wheat fields naked. That's for no one to see. That's to have that freedom of feeling at one with nature. So I am completely unguarded, still."

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms campaign setting. The Good-aligned female Drow worshipers of Eilistraee dance nude outdoors in the moonlight. (She's big on dancing in general, actually. Her worshippers are fond of Prestige Classes that involve the MagicDance and DanceBattler Tropes.) The nude moonlight dance (which is generally performed alone: the drow finds a moonlit glade, then asks Eilistraee to smile upon them, then disrobes and starts dancing) is for all followers. However, there are some more passionate collective rituals are reseved to her ''female'' worshippers -- it's an obligation for her clerics, but her rare male priests have to [[GenderBender spend the dance as a female]] (this is mostly due to the nature of Eilistraee, and to the fact that one can truly feel the Divine Dance of Eilistraee only as a female. They do not have to provide the gender-bending themselves, however). This has changed as of the 1490s DR, since genderbending is no longer required, and male clerics can normally join even the more passionate and intense dances.

* Leetah and Nightfall's forest dance in ''ComicBook/ElfQuest: Siege at Blue Mountain'' probably qualifies, aside from its obvious [[LesYay sexual implications]]. (It's actually foreshadowed by a mention, in one of the novelizations, of couples doing that sort of thing.) The novel twist here is that - in an unusual variation on GoneSwimmingClothesStolen - Moonshade, the tribe's seamstress, sneaks in and switches their clothes with new outfits and the pair are delighted she did with compliments on the new apparel.

* In ''Film/TheBigLebowski'' The Dude is part of the sparse audience watching his landlord ineptly perform one of these on stage, thankfully in a [[NudeColoredClothes flesh colored body stocking]] tactfully embellished with ivy instead of actually naked.
