Subject: Re: Streak
Having been recently graduated when the first streakers were exposed here
in Georgia, I wasn't there at the event(s); however, from my understanding,
the term derived from the rapidity of movement of said bare ones. Unlike
strippers whose purpose is slow removal of garments, streakers are
"pre-buffed" and zip quickly past their intended audience, streaking by.
Avoidance of arrest seemed to be the primary motivation, though perhaps the
speed and tendency of viewers to focus on "forbidden" body parts gave the
undressed hopes of remaining incognito.
