 Streaking - TvWiki, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A streaker will enter a hidden or out-of-the-way spot, undress when and where nobody is looking, and then will surprisingly and unexpectedly dart as fast as he or she can across streets, malls, sports stadiums and lawns completely naked, or, for female streakers, at least leaving the breasts and/or pubic area exposed.
Streaking usually differs from nudism in that a streaker usually intends to be noticed and shock people and will choose a place with a large audience for their act.
Streaking also has its fair share in sports, particularly in the sport of cricket, where it is not uncommon for a streaker to run out to the field purely for shock and entertainment value, or occasionally for political purposes.

 Spartanburg SC | GoUpstate.com | Spartanburg Herald-Journal
Naked walking, naked hiking, or Freehiking is a sub-set of the modern form of social nudity.
Modern naturism in nude-tolerant societies is moving out of the private enclosure and towards the arena of public nudity, where it is deemed ok to be not only naked in public, but where it is also ok to be active (from a stroll to action sports) in the nude.
The point about being active is that many people appear to find static nudity acceptable, for example in the media (porn magazines or page 3 girls in newspapers), and theatre (non-moving Greek-statue-like nudity), but moving nudity, in contrast, seems to generate heated feeling.
