Tapes such as those authored by GM Video and Albedo Productions (those reviews also appearing in this issue) illustrate the carnival aspects of flashing. Videos such as Public Exposure #3 get down to the grittier, more forbidden side of it.
The tape is divided into two parts, the first half of which is devoted exclusively to the Bohemian-looking, world-savvy Nicky who takes us on night time public nudity expeditions along Park Avenue, in Grand Central Stations, cabs, restaurants, buses and limos. Minimal breast and pubic area exposure vs. total nudity is essentially what it boils down to with Nicky offering comments and philosophical observations. "There's more people into it (flashing) than you can imagine," she says at one point. Then, when she doesn't provoke the horrified response she expects, Nicky comments, "People don't react properly." Then, again, we're not talking Cindy Crawford here, either.
The daylight, safety-in-numbers aspect of flashing is personified by Haze, Tee, Poison and Sidney, a quartet of the unlikeliest chemistry since the infield of the 1927 New York Yankees.
Haze, a redheaded lower east side Janis Joplin lookalike, gets the ball rolling when she withdraws her huge mams in the backseat of a stretch limo. One by on,e the other ladies, of dark-skinned persuasion, take turns to the delight of passing motorists. Daredevil Haze takes the initiative by popping out of the sunroof, Jack-in-the-box style, to expose himself.
Give the gals credit. They're trying this routine out in a city whose fabled urban nonchalance wouldn't acknowledge a dead body on the sidewalk.
