Dancing Bare is an amusing, thoughtful and informative tale about Rigby, an impossibly innocent young man who swaps the suffocating confines of middle class New Zealand for love and liberation in nineteen-sixties London and Europe. Revelling in the freedom conferred by anonymity, he becomes an actor, stripper, rent boy, lover, teacher and dedicated traveller through Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, where travellers were uncommon and countries still retained many of the differences that made travelling so interesting.
Rigby meets with a wide variety of people, life styles and customs, eventually settling in Paris where the state did not consider his sexuality to be a criminal offence.
A moving and amusing story of hope and love, sex and sexuality, theatrical showmanship and artless innocence, laced with a little philosophical speculation as he wanders the world in pursuit of true love.

Beautiful- captivating- lovely
If there was ever a man who walked this earth who deserves yet denies riches, it is Rigby Taylor. Having read his books, he has earned my deepest respect and love. I hope to meet a man such as him someday. Note that this is coming from a 15 year old bloke in a small village on Ohio! This book is absolutely enthralling. I felt as if I was living Rigby's life, of only mine could be so full.
