Naked german dance party protest

Everyone hates paying rent. Everyone likes nakedness. A German group, called Hedonist International, has combined the two. To protest the gentrification of Berlin, a city long known for its reasonable cost of living, they have been setting up appointments to view expensive apartments — as if they were going to rent them — but then instead taking off their clothes, blasting techno, and hosting naked dance parties. 

Is this an effective means of enacting social change? Probably not. Is it a fun way to spend an afternoon, to the bewilderment — and arousal — of a few realtors? Yeah, probably.
