Taking it off: what did you expose by stripping?

DNTO March 29

Taking it off: what did you expose by stripping?
We've all had that dream. You know the one: when you're heading out in to the world, only to look down and realize that you're not wearing any clothes. Scary, huh? But why do we have such an intense reaction to taking off our outfits? 

This week, DNTO features stories of people who have removed an item of clothing for all sorts of reasons: from a woman who has a deeply complicated relationship with her hijab, to the man behind "strip spelling bees."

So when did you take it off? And what did you expose by doing so?

It's only two letters long, and yet it's such a complicated word: N-O.

DNTO March 1

What was the animal that changed your life?
Whether it's the birds in your backyard or the deer on the side of the highway, we all share our space with creatures big and small.

What did you get from an act of theft?

DNTO Feb. 22 / Mar. 4

What did you get from an act of theft?
Although we might not care to admit it, we've all had a moment when we've been tempted to steal.

What drives your competitive spirit?

DNTO Feb. 8 / 18

What drives your competitive spirit?
As the world turns its attention to the games in Sochi, watching the finest athletes in the world ski, skate, and snowboard... we thought we'd offer our own take on competition.

Because even if you're not a super-jock hurling yourself head-first down a luge run, chances are good that you're competitive about other things in life. 

Maybe you're a dad who won't let your own kid win at Monopoly, or a lovesick fool competing for someone's affections - there's a little bit of that 'need to win' in all of us.
