Sally Golan has mastered the art of the social icebreaker: At her Naked Painting Party, mingling is fueled by brushes, pigments and an hour of free cocktails. Golan emphasizes that the shindig is about having fun painting each other’s bodies, not hooking up: Voyeurism, personal photography and X-rated activity are not allowed, and behavior monitors ensure that everyone is comfortable and having a good, creep-free time. “I don’t like gawkers because it’s all about the participation,” she says. “My rule of thumb is: Drop your inhibitions, but keep your respect.” Still feeling shy? Guests are welcome to keep their underwear on—just be willing to sacrifice any garments in the name of art.
