The Naked Man of Barcelona

NowAvailable: Naked Man of Barcelona Magnet!


If you're lucky enough to live in Barcelona, you will no doubt see and become familiar with the famous naked man of the city. If you're very lucky, like my mother, you might see him up close (and personal?) while on vacation.

Mr. Dong, as we'll call him going forward is an older guy who blissfully walks throughout the city nude. Well, not quite. He "wears" tattoo underwear. Mr Dong also sports a Prince Albert on his massive penis (dong). I honeslty believe that he must attach some type weight to his penis while around the house as a dong that size while soft is simply not natural.

Think of the problems that walking around naked would create. For starters, you don't have any pockets to put your everyday items in. Mr. Big Dong solves this by strapping a small pouch around his wrist.














As you can see below, he happened to see a friend as I was taking a photo of him. His friend is weaning a pink skirt and white leggings. More proof that people become friends with others that are similar to themselves. In this case, extremely strange.

This man must be one the most photographed people in the city. Yet he must walk around clothed sometimes, no? I would bet that people don't recognize him clothed.

I could go on and on, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy!

could he get a tattoo of a girdle for his gut?

I think he'd look better if he had not gotten the tattoo. It must have been awfull getting it and healing from it. The black sox have to go. They just don't look right to me. I think sandals or flip-flops would look better.

Adeu!

I have just returned from Barcelona yesterday and did happen to see this man with 2 others at the bus station while on a tourbus. Believe me, it was quite a site to see not just one but three...I wonder what the laws are in Spain reguarding this...makes me glad to be back in New Jersey

I actually saw both the naked guy and the fellow in the skirt when I visited in April '07. Naked man was wearing sandals that time.

My pictures are from two different days and in two different parts of the city.

I saw a different naked guy in Barcelona when I was there in October. This one was younger, had no tatts and was wandering around with a day pack on his back - you need somewhere to stash the ciggies and lighter - just wished he hadn't bent over to open the day pack though!! Friends who had been there a few weeks earlier had also seen a naked guy - again not the one with the tatts. What's the go?

That is his friend. They're sometimes seen walking around together. Weird, right?

I am a language teacher who just returned from a trip to Europe with 7 students...Our last stop was Barcelona and both days we were there, we saw this man. With nothing but his socks, shoes and a beer in his hand, he casually walked up to some guy on the corner and started having a conversation. The guy he was talking to never once looked down - amazing. I found this to be incredible, not knowing at the time that it is perfectly legal to roam the streets of Spain nude and asked our tour director, "Sergio, isn't that illegal??!!!?" He just shook his head shamefully and said, "I sorry, I sorry 'bout that." Meanwhile, half of the ladies in our combined group were snapping pictures. I got a photo of his backside on the second day, but didn't have the guts to snap the frontal view. Especially not in front of my HS students. I'm glad I found this blog, so I can show everyone what we saw!!!
I agree with mike's comment about the girdle. Or maybe he could break out a belt - or a fanny pack - that would solve both the gut and pocket issues all at once!!!

Me and my other half flew out to barcelona the very next week after this was reported for the f1 weekend. We had a great weekend but on the monday when the cars had all gone home we were shopping like any normal couple. Them we noticed this man who was completley naked saying hello to 2 police men. We could not believe our eyes. As we were only shopping we did not have a camera with us, something marc has learned never to do again. We came home and no one really believed us. Now i have proof. Thank you to your mum for getting the picture i sadly could not get. Long live naked old men!

I saw this man in Barcelona outside the Olympic Stadium while over there on 21 July to be filmed to be in Madonna's new video (fingers crossed!). When I got home I was googling images to go with my blog, typed in 'barcelona smoothie las ramblas' and there he was on the 10th pic google found - unrelated to what I was looking for!
So now I'm actively googling for info on him, which led me, like so many other people, to your blog! lol
At least with the internet we can all find confirmation that no we didn't imagine it! ;-)

LOL, unbelievable. We saw this man walking down La Rambla at midnight during our stay there this summer, and along Barcelonetta during the day. I've gone as far as to nickname him "Cockzilla" =P. Definitely a highlight of our visit to Barcelona :)

am a student in barcelona. heard from our professor that this man and the other two naked guys are walking around the city unclothed to protest talk of changing the laws and making it illegal to walk around the city nude. I thought it was kind of a neat way to do a silent protest.

I'm in Barcelona for business and after my meeting decided to check out the city. We ended up walking through Las Ramblas and saw an older man riding his bike Naked!!! We were standing waiting to cross the street and I looked over and saw him. I signaled for my friend to turn around and there he was! All 2 inches of his Uncircumcised penis! Oh my! Then about an hour later we were blessed with seeing him a second time! I snapped a pic as he rode away. He may have had a smaller penis...but he was in pretty good shape for an older guy! LOL

Are you guys talking about the guy with the shlonker down to mid calf!! we saw him toooooo! couldnt believe our eyes!!

I was just discussing this with a Spanish colleague and he found it hard to believe because it is also forbidden to walk topless (men and women) on the streets outside of beach areas, You can be fined for it.
BTW. He's also known as "The elephant man" :)
