Singing and dancing in public with no fear of judgement or humiliation would be great


Are we talking in the streets or like performing?

This thread makes little sense to me because if I want to do something then I do it. If I have some sort of reservations then that means I don't really want to do it and therefore I do not do it.

Not performing, more like having a song in your head and just singing it outloud and dancing even though you know you probably dance terribly and look stupid.

Ok just so we're on the same page. So what does stop you from doing it? Is it the public? Do you do those things by yourself or with friends?

What stops me from doing it is fear of humiliation. I might sing and dance in my room, or, if I'm drunk, in front of my friends, but I'm a very private and reserved person, so it's not in my nature to just start singing out loud on campus, at the library, or on the streets. Plus, some of the songs I like are in other languages, so people would find that even more strange.

This has nothing to do with private or reserved. If you want to sing and dance around in public then do so. I am a wierd combination of reserved/insane, I don't much like public places but if I'm there then I'll do what I feel like. Having people look at you wierd or think you're 'retarded' is half the fun.

I never said it was ok but maybe I should reiterate, by wanting to do something I mean wanting it enough to accept the consequences and as such I do not want to do things that get me into trouble I just like carefree entertainment.
But as long as no one gets hurt and no laws are broken then the worst people can do is think that you're stupid. If you want to do those things then go for it but remember that when you openly offend someone they usually will react to it so expect to be confronted.

Theres nothing wrong with getting funny looks, or singing in public. i was walking down the road in the town i live in and realised i was getting some strange looks, soon realised that i was singing along to "rape me" by nirvana. though i will say, i think the sex in public is a bit far, mayb a public place, but out of view (and hearing range.)

Yeah, lol, that's right awakened.
I have to admit, though, although I'm afraid of public judgement and humiliation, sometimes I'll just have a bout of total disregard of judgement. Mmostly it happens in situations where I think public nonsense is neccessary. For example: Wal*Mart. Two times I've gotten what I call "Wal-Mart phobia" where I start to feel all panicky and thinking we're all like cattle, just consumers, so I run to the kids department as a refugee among the toys. One time I found a Darth Vader mask and a red light saber and decided "Hey, why not?" and walked around the entire Super Wal-Mart humming the Darth Vader theme song. It was great to see people turn around and smile.
Surprisingly, little kids didn't care much. It was mostly the adults, young and old, who found it funny. They would either start making the deep breathing noises or say "Hey, Vader!" but none of it was in any way mockery of myself. They all thought it was great fun and had a joyful smile on their face. I would always bow in recognition or laugh maniacally towards the sky. It was great to break up the drudgery and boredom of the day, especially in a soul-sucking place like Wal-Mart. Last time I went I found the same Darth Vader mask but walked around playing a children's accordion I found in the toys section. People didn't think it was that funny because I didn't play the accordion that well, but I enjoyed it just the same.

rancidkitty26, and anyone else who feels shame in showing their body nude -
Assuming you're not looking for a sexual experience, I would recommend modeling nude for a university life drawing class. I modeled nude for four years (age 24 - 27) and found that, after the initial paralyzing fear wore off, it was one of the most personally liberating feelings I have ever had in my entire life. Things to expect:
1) Of course there will be somebody in the class that is taking it so they can catch a glimpse of a naked person, but the class will be so structured that you may not even be aware of it.
2) Feeling the eyes of 20+ people on your naked body will bring you emotions from the entire emotional spectrum untill you start to feel more comfortable with yourself.
3) At some point, you will take a look at a drawing that one of the more talented artists has drawn and you will feel flattered and filled with such an unexplainable sense of "seeing yourself for the first time" that you will want to tell everybody about it - BE CAREFUL HERE - not everyone is comfortable with their own nudity, and may not receive the idea of you posing nude without judgement.

Oh - and as to what I would like to do in public that I have never done - I would like to say whatever I thought about somebody if something really caught my attention. I don't mean only the acceptable things, like saying "thank you" or telling someone that they were helpful. I also mean simple things like telling a beautiful woman that she is beautiful without her acting like I am trying to get in her pants.

I love that song, and I can imagine the quaint looks people would have shown.
