It was a chilly night in Melbourne on Thursday - but that didn't stop Gold 104.3 radio stars Jo Stanley and Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann launching Australia's first ever NAKED restaurant.


The Jo & Lehmo breakfast show duo bared almost everything as they joined a host of completely nude foodies to sample the menu at The Noble Experiment in Collingwood.


But it was all about celebrating healthy and positive body image as guests enjoyed the clothing-optional event, with Lehmo declaring the next morning: 'It was a full party.'



Clothing optional: It was a chilly night in Melbourne on Thursday, but that didn't stop mother and daughter Vicki and Estelle Ferrie stripping off to attend Australia's first ever naked restaurant


The occasion dubbed 'Jo & Lehmo’s Nude Food' was inspired when the co-hosts heard about London's first naked restaurant Bunyadi, which has over 30,000 people on the waiting list.


But far from being a titillating affair, the clothing-option eatery instead championed different body types, including those of all shapes and sizes and people affected by disease and injury.


The guest list included Alison Zarafa, who is in remission from a very rare form of cancer, who said proudly: 'The way I look at it, it’s OK to have fear but don’t let fear stop you.'

Survivor: The guest list included Alison Zarafa, who is in remission from a very rare form of cancer, who said proudly, 'The way I look at it, it’s OK to have fear but don’t let fear stop you'

Celebration: The Melbourne radio station later posted this group photo from the restaurant on Instagram

Baring all: All of the guests arrived clothed but many stripped naked to enjoy the unique dining experience

She continued: 'I fought an extremely long and hard battle for a year and these days I look at life extremely different, and I’m blessed every single day of my life.


'I have amazing family, friends, and partner and gorgeous son... and I want to look back when I’m old and I want to laugh about the things I’ve done, and this is one of them,' she concluded.


Meanwhile, pictures from the night show a variety of Melbourne residents looking in thoroughly good spirits as the enjoyed food and cocktails in the buff.

Covering up: Jo and Lehmo seemed to spend the night bundled up in white bathroom robes, but most of the other diners stripped off soon after arriving

A social event: Radio personality Lehmo noted that there were partitions between the tables to start with, however as the evening progressed the partitions were pulled down


Diners Jordan Kettle, 22, and Rebekah Jackson, 20, smiled as they perused the menu, while cheeky barman Buck flashed his bottom in just an apron while mixing up a drink.


Lookalike mother and daughter duo Vicki and Estelle Ferrie also smiled for the cameras while sat at their table against the backdrop of rustic brick decor.


Helen Belyea, who is 30 weeks pregnant, also perused the menu with her partner Ryan Wilshire, who stood out from the unclothed crowed in a woolly beanie.

On Friday morning, they said on-air that the response to their naked dining experiment had been overwhelming.


'Everybody was in such a good mood, I was nervous for the people who were doing it but they went down there, they got their kit off, they enjoyed it,' said Lehmo, 46.


'We had partitions up between all the tables, they pulled the partitions down. They were all swapping tables by the end of the night, it was a full party,' he added.


Mingle: Radio co-host Lehmo said, 'Everybody was in such a good mood, I was nervous for the people who were doing it but they went down there, they got their kit off, they enjoyed it'

Breaking the ice: He continued, 'We had partitions up between all the tables, they pulled the partitions down. They were all swapping tables by the end of the night, it was a full party'


Earlier this week, 43-year-old Jo experienced what it was like getting naked with strangers for a radio segment - as she didn't want to strip off in front of colleagues at the restaurant.


'I just sort of felt like I don’t want to get nude at the restaurant because there will be people there that I work with, namely Lehmo, and that’s weird,' she explained.


'But I am sort of interested in this process of understanding your body in a different way, such that you might like it regardless of how it looks. 


'That would be so freeing for me, free of that self-talk that makes you think, "That’s not right",' she concluded.


A Noble Experiment indeed! The name of the restaurant was appropriate for hosting a clothing-option event

Success! After cheerfully posed for photographs at the Gold press wall, Jo and Lehmo said on-air on Friday morning that the response to their naked dining experiment had been overwhelming
