“The Naked Man is going to revolutionize the one-night stand like the forward pass in football or the slam dunk in basketball,” said Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) during last night’s episode of “How I Met Your Mother.” And we think he’s right.
A revolution in man-dom, “The Naked Man” is a last-resort move to get laid, used when you have nothing to lose at the end of a mediocre first date. And it all comes from the prophet, Mitch. In the beginning of last night’s episode, Ted walks into the apartment to find Robin’s date, Mitch sitting on the couch buck naked. Mitch, explaining his lack of clothing, tells Ted all the rules to the Naked Man:
1. “You’re on a first date, you’ve had a few drinks and you make an excuse to go up to the girls apartment.”
2. “Once she is out of the room you strip down naked and wait.”
3. “When she gets back, she sees you naked and laughs. She is so charmed by your confidence and bravado she sleeps with you.”
Now this might sound completely crazy, but something tells us it’s worth the risk of trying. But you have to be willing to fail some of the time (and maybe get the cops called on you.) As Mitch explains, The Naked Man works 2 out of 3 times, so chances are you’re going to have at least one chick freak out. But when it works with the other two, it’ll all be worth it.
And remember, The Naked Man is for a one night stand only. Any date with the girl after will be a “I’m Not A Slut For Sleeping With You Just Because You Were Naked Date” that will be miserable and awkward.
