Caught Naked

You are at home, naked as the day you were born and happier for being so, minding your own business. When it happens, there is a knock at the front door. What do you do? Most naturists have been there before and I believe most of us have a plan of action for such occurrences, at least those who do not live at a naturist park or resort and have to think about who is on the other side of the door. Unfortunately I do not live at a naturist park or resort, and nudity laws are still on the books where we live so we have made some preparations. Tara and I added frosting to the accent windows next to our front door and replaced the glass insert with a fully frosted one as well. And just for convenience we each have a spare set of clothes tucked away in the front hall closet so we don’t have to run up stairs and miss out on a delivery.

Like many naturists, we choose to keep a hard line between our naturist world and our textile friends and family. I know many of you are much more open and that is wonderful, however my chosen career path and my very conservative, very religious family make this close to impossible. To keep the peace and avoid the drama only our closest friends and fellow naturists know the truth about our naturist life. Sometimes we do blur the line a little, and we have one close friend in particular that allows us to do so easily. Cathy (not her real name) is not a naturist but is very “liberal” leaning, and the three of us have been friends since high school. Not only was she one of the first to know when Tara and I became a couple, but she was also one of the first to know we are naturists. Thanks to Cathy’s openness and comfort with us, when she visits Tara and I are free to remain nude while she remains clothed although even Cathy dips her toe in the naturist water if only a little. Our new hot tub (great addition to the naturist home!) is primarily for “nudes only” and she loves the hot tub enough to take part au natural, although usually not before a glass of wine. We also have a new tradition of sorts when watching hockey games at our house, the three of us each wear only a hockey jersey. Its a pretty great arrangement that allows us be naturists at home even when a close friend visits, and allows her to be a bit more “liberal” without crossing the line into full naturism for which she is not ready. Yet. Continued…Read full original article…

The older, the nuder.
Interesting how things can change in a moment.

When I first thought of the title for a new post (this one: the older, the nuder), I had an idea where this was going. Until I started investigating the idea, which made me see things in a much different way. Let me tell you what I thought and what I’ve learnt!

My initial idea was that, when people get older they get less flexible. I’ve seen it everywhere and still do. I’ve seen it with my parents too.

That brought me to the conclusion that older people should stay nude more for the simple reason that putting on clothes requires some agility, and since older people have that less and less, not having to put on clothes would make life easier for them. Are you with me so far? Sounds logical, doesn’t it? Continued…Read full original article…

What two nudists want you to know about learning to love your body.

Cherie Lidbury was on her lunch break when she first tried nudism. It was the late ’80s, she was working in a sales job in Perth, and took herself down to a clothing-optional beach at Swanbourne, pulled there by the warm weather, cool water and her own curiosity.

“I sit down on the sand. There’s naked people laying around, and it’s like ‘I’ve got nothing to lose. No one knows me.’ So off I strip, in the water I go,” the 57-year-old told Mamamia.

Kat Campbell was 19 when she started nude modelling.

“As a teenager, I was definitely not comfortable in my own body at all. I was someone that was kind of bullied in school. So I just kind of retreated into myself. I had no body confidence. I didn’t think I was pretty,” she told Mamamia. “But modelling was different. I just had this feeling that I wanted to do it – I couldn’t explain why. It’s just something that makes me feel at peace and it gives me freedom.” Continued…Read full original article…

Nude Beach Etiquette & Rules
The Best Australian Nudist Beaches.

When someone tells you they’re coming to visit our vast and beautiful country, what’s the first thing you’ll suggest they see? Kangaroos? The Sydney Opera House? Bondi Beach? The Outback? Australia is known for a lot of things. After all we’re one of the most popular destinations in the world. The land down under boasts incredible tourist attractions and activities. But how about this for a crowd puller? Nude beaches. Yep that’s right. Nude beaches give new meaning to a land down under. I mean, they’re not a tourist attraction you usually find on a mainstream tourist itinerary. But we have plenty of them. So why not get your kit off, take the plunge and visit one?

Whether you’re daring and adventurous, or even just a little curious, Australia’s nude beaches are for you. Like most Australian beaches they’re bedazzlingly and beautiful. Nudists and naturists rave about them. So come on, let’s go on a nudie run through nude beach Australia to find out just how spectacular Australia’s nudist beaches are and what to expect when you’re on one.

Nudism is not a new movement or idea. It’s been around for more than 100 years. The first Olympics featured nude athletes. The first nudist colonies were set up back in 1891 in British India. They’ve been going strong ever since. Continued…Read full original article…

Pagano nudista Intelectual

Primeramente se preguntarán, ¿y qué tiene que ver el naturismo con el nudismo? Ambos términos se emplean muchas veces como sinónimo, aunque en realidad, el naturismo supone una concepción más global que el simple hecho de ir desnudo, concibiendo el nudismo como parte de una forma de vida basada en el contacto directo con la naturaleza. Según la Federación Española de Naturismo se define como tal a una forma de vivir en armonía con la naturaleza, caracterizada por la práctica del desnudo en común, con la finalidad de favorecer el respeto a los demás, a uno mismo y al medio ambiente. Mientras que el nudismo se define como la práctica por parte de grupos de personas (nudistas) de distintos tipos de actividades desnudos, generalmente en público.

A un nudista le gusta disfrutar de los espacios libres, el sol, la arena, el agua y la naturaleza. Un naturista, además de esto, busca ser uno con la naturaleza, la comprensión de las verdades y los principios poniendo su mente en movimiento, además de compartir una preocupación por el medio ambiente, la naturaleza, el ecologismo, y sentir que necesita hacer algo para proteger un legado. Esta concepción considera que la prohibición moral de la práctica del desnudo público es origen de problemas psico-emocionales, entre los que se encuentran falta de autoestima, una pobre autoimagen corporal y morbo sexual.

Volunteering at your naturist club
Years ago, after we had set our first careful steps into naturism and when we were browsing the internet for a new naked place to visit we stumbled upon a mention “federation membership required”. What was that supposed to mean?

Until then, a naturist campground to us was just like a textile one where you could show up, pay and setup your tent. Now, apparently, we were in need of some membership card.
It only took a couple of clicks to figure out that naturism was in fact something pretty well organised. That there were actual federations taking care of the rights of naturists and guarantee a safe environment. They organise events where it’s possible to get in touch with other naturists and what appealed the most to us, they would give us a card that promised entry to places where until now we wouldn’t be allowed.

Unlike in many other countries, in Belgium it was not possible to directly become member of the naturist federation. One has to become member of a naturist club. So that’s what we tried to do. We picked one of the 10 or so clubs, it didn’t really matter which one as long as we would be able to get federation membership, and received a form to fill out. Name, age, gender, address, all the regular questions, and then “What can you do for our club?”
Well… euhm… yeah…

What can we do for your club…

Pay the membership fee? Continued…Read full original article…

Wonderful reasons to start as a nudist

If you think about it, compared to other hobbies getting naked for fun is a pretty weird thing to do. So why are there so many weird people undressing for fun and talking about it? What could possibly motivate these people to get together with a bunch of random folks and strip down just for fun? Maybe to just be different? Or maybe they are simply being strange? Everyone has their own explanation for it, but it’s certainly not a logical hobby. But hobbies like drinking alcohol and smoking are illogical as well and don’t make a lot of sense, and yet millions of people still do these activities daily.

Nudists are no different, except that there are no unhealthy benefits. In fact, as we’ll see, it’s quite the opposite. Let’s start with the intellectual benefits.

If you ask a serious nudist to define the most important benefit from being naked, the first answer he or she would give is the sense of freedom and liberation (which I would fully agree with!). There is nothing comparable to start undressing your clothes and expose your body to the elements of nature; to feel the sun and a slight summer breeze on your body.

The first time when you get naked outside in nature is the best experience ever but the feeling never leaves you, no matter how long you remain a nudist. Combining your bare body with nature is a magical sense of release, especially in the constrained world we live in today where it’s increasingly challenging to find a true sense of freedom. Nudism provides us all with a simple path to authentic liberation. Continued…Read full original article…

Why you should visit a nude beach this summer
Young woman who stripped naked with her friend in public says it was life-changing – and has kept going back to ‘frolic’ with strangers since

Visiting a nudist beach is something many people – prudish or otherwise – could not imagine doing.

But one young woman is urging all women to try one this summer – in order to feel more ‘liberated’.

Jessa O’Brien, 29, from the Gold Coast, recalled her first experience at a nudist beach on the Great Ocean Road in 2013 – and the joy of ‘frolicking’ naked with strangers.

Jessa explained her first trip to a nudist beach (pictured) happened five years ago, when she and some friends had visited the Great Ocean Road

‘It was nearing the end of 2013 and a group of friends and I had hired out a house along the Great Ocean Road for New Year’s Eve,’ Jessa recalled on her blog.

‘While the party house boasted an awesome pool, not being big fans of tan lines at the time, my best friend and I were looking to get away and get topless.’

Jessa said she had been sunbathing topless for around four years beforehand, but had never fully gone nude on the beach.

However, that evening on her New Year’s break, she and a couple of friends decided it was time.

‘After a walk along Southside Beach, the further down we walked, the less bikini-clad the beachgoers became,’ she recalled.

‘Destination reached! Off came the tops!’. Continued…Read full original article…

How nudity brings sheer happiness
It’s not a big surprise, is it?

It’s probably not a surprise to most of you reading this: being nude brings happiness. This of course counts if you can be nude in the right circumstances.

A right circumstance.
A right circumstance.

As the above image shows, simple things in life can make a person happy, and there is no need for anything like clothing involved. Even the basic action of removing those layers of fabric, leather, plastic or whatever people put on is a reason to be cheerful. Which reminds me of an album by Ian Dury, by the way… Continued…Read full original article…

The day I was mistaken for a nudist
“Hey Tim, are there any ocean beaches near Canberra where I can legally swim naked?” audaciously asked an email from ‘‘Celeste’’ that lobbed into my inbox a few weeks ago.

As someone who prefers a ‘togs-on’ patch of sand on which to spread my towel, I was somewhat taken aback by the next line of Celeste’s request which read, “Someone told me, you’d be just the man to know!”

After a flurry of subsequent email exchanges, it turns out my curious correspondent confused your Akubra-clad columnist’s vocation of a naturalist (one who studies nature) with that of a naturist (basically, another term for a nudist).

Armands Beach on a sunny summer’s dayARMANDS BEACH LEISURE GROUP & SAPPHIRE COAST TOURISM
Armands Beach on a sunny summer’s day

What’s more, after a bit of digging, due to similar spelling of the two terms, apparently Celeste isn’t the first to make the error. In fact, some nature-based businesses have felt compelled to inform their potential customers of the crucial difference.

Take for example Aurora Expeditions who entice nature-lovers on adventure cruises to showcase the natural wonders of Antarctica and beyond. Continued…Read full original article…

Can We Live Naked On A Permanent Basis?
The answer to the title of this post is a resounding yes, without any doubt or hesitation. It’s not about throwing all your clothes to the trash, but to decide to wear as little as possible and to remain naked as much as possible. Here’s why and how.

Nudity is a natural state of any mammal in general and the human being in particular. Being nude at home, in your intimacy, is a normal state. The first advice I give to the aspiring naturists is to start by sleeping naked. There is nothing more comfortable. If you used to sleep with pajamas, a nightgown or any other garment, the first night would seem odd to you. You’ll probably feel like you’re doing something wrong. Don’t worry; you’re not doing anything wrong. On the contrary, you’re doing something healthy for your body and skin.

If you are afraid of being cold, add a blanket or put a goose-feather duvet. In the morning, when waking up, stay naked, if the temperature allows it of course. If your home is well insulated and the temperature around sixty-eight degrees in the winter,you can comfortably stay naked. The feeling of cold often comes from the feet,put on warm slippers to remain at home. Prepare breakfast and take it naked. If you live with other people, you may not want to be naked in front of them right away. It’s coming! Continued…Read full original article…

How to stay nudist during winter?
As the colder day arrived, one of the most questions I receive in my mail is: “How to stay nudist during winter?” I am not the queen of nudism, and I can´t give you some rules you have to obey, but I can share with you how am I dealing with winter and give you some ideas.

If you have a home where you can be nude all day, it is a win. You can call over your nudist friends and have a party, play some games or have a nice dinner and enjoy the nudist company. But, not all nudists are so lucky. Some of them live with families that don´t like nudism and therefore can’t be naked all day long in the comfort of their warm home. So, if you are one of them you have to get out.

If you can’t enjoy nudism in your own home, or you just want to socialize with fellow nudists, you can research nude clubs and restaurant near you and enjoy there for the whole day or just for a few hours.

There are many nudist resorts all over the world, so I am sure you will find some close to you to go for a fantastic nudist getaway. Most of them near where I live are open only during the summer months, but there are some that are more indoor-oriented and therefore open all year long. Continued…Read full original article…

Size does matter: big vs small nudist camps

The difference in nudist camps is enormous, ranging from the small 10 spot campground which normally caters only to members and once in a while a guest to huge naturist villages like Cap d’agde in France.

The choice can be difficult, where do we want to go?

Both types have of course their advantages and disadvantages, and what seems to be an advantage for one isn’t necessarily the same for someone else.

To help you find out what fits best in your perfect nakation, we’ll give you some of the characteristics.

It’s easy to imagine that the amount of facilities on the bigger camps is much bigger than on the smaller camps, but that doesn’t make them better. Swimming pools for example. Most nudist camps have one and the smaller camps often won’t have a 25 meter pool. But what’s the need when you only have about 20 guests at one time? Unless you’re planning to practice your swimming skills, you’ll have enough space in the smaller pool. When, on the other hand, there’s only one big pool on the larger camp, it might get a cramped from time to time. Continued…Read full original article…

The history behind Milwaukee’s first-ever nudist camp
The 1930s were a stressful time in Milwaukee. Was all that constrictive clothing to blame?

Milwaukeeans needed distraction during the Great Depression. Urbanism, it seemed, was failing them. The great brick and mortar works that had once powered the city were quieting and people were growing desperate and questioning things they had never before questioned.

So, in the spring of 1934, when Dr. Alois Knapp arrived in Milwaukee promising to build a state-wide movement back to nature – and out of clothing – people paid attention.

Mirror Lake in Sauk County, where Wisconsin's first-ever nudist camp was established in 1934.wikicommons
Mirror Lake in Sauk County, where Wisconsin’s first-ever nudist camp was established in 1934.

Knapp was an Austrian. He had trained as a priest, but found the law more intriguing. He and his brother left their homeland between the World Wars and settled on a huge plot of Indiana farmland. Finding Americans to be a people in desperate need of a relaxing and affordable means of escape from the speed of modern life, he transformed 180 acres of the land into a nature resort. At Knapp’s resort, dubbed “Zorro Nature Camp,” clothing was forbidden, bringing to the US the long-established European practice of nudism.

Knapp found a following in both Indiana and across the Midwest. In Milwaukee, a local man named Max Hilbig became such a devotee of Knapp that he pledged 100 acres of land in Sauk County to establish Wisconsin’s first-ever nudist camp. Knapp came to Milwaukee in April 1934 to dedicate the camp and drum up support for his cause. Continued…Read full original article…

‘How I set up a nudist retreat after losing $500K retirement savings’

Retirement should be a time to relax and enjoy the proceeds of a hard-working life – but for some, it can come with some major money pitfalls that can result in devastating financial ruin.

While many retirees in that situation may choose to work for longer or lean on family to get by, one man completely changed his lifestyle in a drastic move to regain some of his lost savings – and he’s never been happier.

Rainer Mueckenberger, 69, lost $500,000 of his retirement savings when a scheme he had invested in fell through, forcing him to sell up properties and move to a new state for a fresh start.

Refusing to let the financial blow defeat him, he instead took his remaining savings and slowly built up his own nudist retreat, offering sensual getaways for couples and friends from across the world on the Sunshine Coast. Continued…Read full original article…

Is our youth becoming more prudish?
Even though we are already in our thirties, we still like to think of ourselves as youth. But every now and then reality gives us a punch in the face and puts our feed back on the ground. Then we notice that youth isn’t exactly how we remember it.

Last week we had one of those days that actually came quite as quite a shock.

A documentary on the Dutch TV revealed that teenagers in sport clubs often chose not to shower naked. Either they shower wearing underwear (with an awkward towel dance at the end) or they wait until they get home to clean the dirt off.

Has this world gone mad?

The first question that flashed through our heads was: “How did we feel about public showers when we were kids?”
Well, there wasn’t exactly an option. After sports you showered. Naked. Together. Period.

Did we always enjoy this?

Probably not.

All adolescents struggle with their body image. They want to be normal, but they feel abnormal and they are very much afraid to become the joke of the day.

But in those days, if you didn’t dare to shower naked, you were the joke of the day. Continued…Read full original article…

‘Totally gutted’: Locals angry as nude beach in Australia set to stay

A councillor in Australia wants the local New South Wales government to intervene after the council voted to keep a remote Byron Bay beach optional of clothing.

Councillor Paul Spooner said the decision to keep the clothing optional declaration at Tyagarah Beach showed the council was “not listening” to locals.

Locals protested outside Byron Shire Council for the clothing optional declaration removed from Tyagarah Beach.

“They are elected as representatives for the residents and it’s clear to me that the residents of that community do not want a nude beach anymore,” he said.

Tyagarah Beach was officially made clothing optional 20 years ago after locals petitioned for a legal nude beach, and has been enjoyed by people keen for a skippy dip since then. Continued…Read full original article…

No male nudity on beaches please: Karnataka Women’s Commission Chief writes to CM
In her letter, Nagalakshmi Bai told the CM that male nudity on the beach was a threat to the safety of women and also posed a security threat.

The Chairperson of Karnataka’s Women’s Commission NG Nagalakshmi Bai, in a letter to the state’s Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, has come up with an unusual request – a dress code for men on beaches.

Nagalakshmi’s letter was prompted by the sight of nude men she saw at Gokarna Beach earlier this month when she was there for a holiday.

“I was in Gokarna three weeks ago and observed men walking around the beach nude. They should wear at least a little bit of clothing to cover themselves up,” she said, speaking to TNM.

In her letter, Nagalakshmi told the CM that male nudity on the beach “is not only posing a threat to the safety of women and children but also a security threat (sic)”.

She called for more police personnel to be posted on beaches for security reasons. “There are many women and children, including young women who are selling items in the beach, who are affected by this. There have been accusations of sexual assault against them,” she said. Continued…Read full original article…

The wealth of being in nudity
Hey. You.

Yes. You. Do you like being nude? Do you like being among other nude people? Yes? If so, do you know how wealthy you are?

Really. I’m not kidding. I’m convinced that people like you and I are among the emotionally wealthiest folks around. The most mentally mature too in ways. Because we know people. Real people.

Nude people. Surprising? Hardly, I’d say. Nudists and naturists have overcome the ‘problems’ that so many people in this world have with skin, with a proper body. We know how real people look. We don’t need Photoshop to look our unattainable best either. All we need to do it take off our clothes and there we are. Our naked best.

The more time I spend in the nude, either alone or with others, the more I am surprised how being this way can ever be a problem. Of course, we all know it is because of the big brainwash that is advertisement, crazy body ideals that will never be possible, and the general fear of nudity as proclaimed by many forms of religion and other groups.

Nudist ranch zoning appeal wins early victory at planning tribunal

The Township of Stone Mills failed in its bid to stop a planning appeal from a couple wanting to expand a clothing-optional campground.

In a decision released last week, the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal denied the township’s application to have the couple’s appeal thrown out.

Yvonne Gibson of Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch says she is encouraged by a planning appeals tribunal decision that will let her continue to fight to expand a clothing-optional campground at a property near TamworthElliot Ferguson/The Whig-Standard
Yvonne Gibson of Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch says she is encouraged by a planning appeals tribunal decision that will let her continue to fight to expand a clothing-optional campground at a property near Tamworth

The validity decision doesn’t settle the matter, it only lets the case go on to a hearing, if necessary.

Last year, Yvonne Gibson and her husband, Hector Gravelle, started the process to have their 40-hectare property on Carroll Road rezoned to allow them to expand the campground at Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch, which they have operated without the proper zoning since 2012.

In April of this year, Stone Mills Township council voted 4-3 to refuse the rezoning application, a decision that went against recommendations from township staff and consultants report. Continued…Read full original article…

Texas naked lady – nude vlogger
If you don’t know her yet, we would like to introduce you to the nude vlogger who calls herself the Texas naked lady. Our committed mission is sharing the stories of ordinary people who practice clothes free life. Other folks cover the celebrities of naturist travel and experience. We like to find the everyday folks who like to share their stories to inspire others to live everyday life clothes free. A few months ago were fortunate enough to come across the vlogs (video blogs) of the The Texas Naked Lady (Nicola) on Vimeo. We believe the vlogs are an expression of authentic clothes free life as experienced by a deaf woman. She shares her life working on crafts projects, swimming in her pool, planning activities of everyday life just clothes free. It isn’t often that we hear the “voice” of the hearing-impaired or deaf in naturist circles. We eagerly share our interview with Nicola who vlogs under the name of the Texas Naked Lady.

I am just a normal woman. A wife and mother and wanting to enjoy life to the fullest. I was born in England but moved to the US when I was about 10 (and am now a US citizen). I’ve gone to school and worked and raised my family. I love sewing and other crafts and always like to keep busy. My husband spoils me and supports me in everything I do and I try to do the same for him. He helps me learn English better and I teach him sign.

I started this Vlog to reach out to both deaf and hearing, naturist and nudist, and just anyone who will listen. I want to share my ideas and thoughts on topics that I feel are important, and just some of my daily life. Hopefully I can reach out to people and share my thoughts and let people see that I am a normal person. I want to let people see that being deaf or naked or anything else for that matter, is not wrong, just maybe different than what you are used to at the moment. Hopefully by listening and watching, they will become more comfortable with both and learn to be more accepting.

I have made a lot of videos when using sign language but not nude. Most of my messages to deaf friends are recorded videos (sign language). I made a few nude ones for family and friends just having fun, but this is my first time really public. I have always enjoyed the freedom of being nude. It is just so much more comfortable and free and open. I decided that I wanted to have more of that in my life and don’t mind sharing my experiences with others.

This is my first public Vlog or blog. I wanted to start one before but really didn’t know how or where. Most websites I knew had rules against nudity so would hardly be a good place to show my videos. Vimeo gave me the perfect place to start.

I hope that they will see me and see a part of my life. I hope that they learn about being deaf and to accept people for who they are, not for their first immediate differences. The same with nudism. Most people are so nervous about it until they actually get a chance to be with someone who talks about it openly. So many times we’ve had people join us skinny dipping and the first words out of their mouth is always “Oh I could never do that!”. Then they start asking questions and we just answer them. Before you know it off comes the bathing suits and their next questions is “When can we do this again?”. Continued…Read full original article…

Naturism in the jungles
Being nude is normal in many cultures, not surprisingly, mostly in tropical regions. Hot and humid climate discourages clothes. Amazon Indians are a prime example, but primordial naturism is everywhere.

Goran Šafarek is a world traveler and river expert. He has encountered many such cases during his voyages. You can read more on his blog. Here, he will write more about being nude in the jungle.

The state of nude is natural to many native people around the world. The clothes are welcomed as a protection against the cold and other elements, including insects, it could also be cumbersome. But, even in civilized place, I have witnessed that being naked is nothing to be ashamed.

I remember paddling on a wild river in west Madagascar. After a hard day on the river, scorched by the sun in our wooden canoe, we have finally landed on a nice sandy beach. It is almost savannah, with scattered trees and lots of tall grasslands. The clouds were already red and yellow from the setting sun.

As we were pitching the camp, the people from the nearby village came. They were clearly peasants, poor, but proud. They greeted us and we greeted them. Older women started washing the clothes and dishes, while a group of young girls entered to take a bath. They were around 16, maybe older, it was difficult to guess. They were totally naked, not more than ten meters in front of us, vazaha, and in front of their parents and other adults. Their slender, wet bodies glistening on the red sun were darker than the milky brown river. Continued…Read full original article…

Doncaster nudist festival confirms it will return for tenth year
A popular nudist festival which attracts naturists from across Britain will be held in Doncaster again next summer.

Until Fairly Recently, The YMCA Actually Required Swimmers To Be Nude

Last week, I was eating lunch with a friend and her dad in Manhattan on 23rd Street, directly across from what used to be the McBurney YMCA, when my friend’s dad had a sudden recollection.

Apparently, in 1968, as part of a freshman requirement for the city college he attended, all male students took a swim class at the YMCA. For reasons somewhat unclear to him at the time (and, we joked, probably repressed until now) the Y had a particular rule: If you’re going to swim, you must swim nude.

Aquatic directors did the "visual inspections" before a boy could enter the pool.
Aquatic directors did the “visual inspections” before a boy could enter the pool.

“Nude-nude?” I asked. “Totally nude,” he said.

He remembers the instructor telling them something about it being more sanitary that way. “But,” he conceded, “no one really questioned it.” After a moment, he paused.

“What the hell was that all about?”

I thought I’d investigate. Was my friend’s dad just recalling some adolescent nightmare? Was his swim teacher some pervy old dude? Or was this requirement legit? And if it was, why? How would not wearing a bathing suit be any less sanitary than skinny-dipping? Continued…Read full original article…

The Story of Clothing Optional Home Network

When my wife and I started our first Clothing Optional B&B in 2011, we had no expectation of making it a larger business. We simply wanted to take advantage of having a large home with beautiful grounds that was now just shared by two of us since we were now empty-nesters. With our backgrounds and experience in the naturist world, customer service, hospitality and food & beverage…we knew we wanted to offer an “experience” for our guests and not just another bed and a breakfast. We were gratified and pleased with the response we received.

From the beginning, our guests were so complimentary and shared that they wanted more places where they could have a similar naturist experience. The concept of building a network of similar naturist bed and breakfast destinations with a low key, quality experience began to form. The dilemma was how to have more locations, but still have some influence on the guest experience. So, in formulating the plan we knew that screening & vetting of hosts, training, inspection and follow-up was the only way we could assure the level of quality at each location.

Certainly the “home-sharing” business model is big right now. However we also knew in that mass-market model there was NO screening, NO training, NO site inspection and NO follow-up on the guest experience other than guest reviews (which are sometimes less than reliable). We also felt that the large home sharing business model is the Wild, Wild West of the hospitality industry. Continued…Read full original article…

Do you still think of being naked?

That’s something I realised a while ago. Being undressed in the right weather / temperature conditions has become so natural to me that I hardly think about it.

That’s also the reason why I opened the front door naked a few times this summer; it was Very, really Very Warm for a long time.

Out on a forest walk.
Out on a forest walk.

The interesting bit was that some people, after their initial surprise, seemed to pay little mind to my (lack of) attire. Especially after explaining why I wasn’t wearing clothes. It was – in a way – weird to find that many people at the door understood the reason immediately, but that I had to explain the why to them first.

After hearing that, most of them agreed that it was a clever thing to do. Such encounters tell me that being naked is basically accepted by many people, but that the actual doing is something that doesn’t cross their mind until they see someone who actually does it. (Leading by example, anyone?)

But back to the original question: Do you still ‘know’ you’re naked when you’re naked? Continued…Read full original article…

Is Family Nudity and Nudism Really Good for Children?
Is Nudism, and Family Nudity Good for Children? Aren’t Kids Nudists Anyway?
Is Nudism Good for Children and The Truth Behind Nudity in the Family:

Benjamin Spock, Ann Landers, and Abigail van Buren, all popular authorities on child-rearing and other matters, have often warned of the dangers of exposing children to nudity. Though their theories on the matter are well-known, are they truly valid? Is there solid research to prove it? Studies of how nudity affects kids are actually sparse, though they have slightly increased in number in recent years.

The findings and their interpretations are often influenced by researchers’ own preconceptions, including findings that may better explain the effects of parents’ attitudes toward nudity on kids rather than the actual effect of children being exposed to nudity.

Family nudity – How does it affect childhood development? We consult the research!
Family nudity – How does it affect childhood development? We consult the research!

However since the late 1970’s, more objective and controlled research has taken place in an effort to identify the truth of how exposure to nudity affects child development. All of this nudism research indicates not only a lack of negative effects, but a whole list of benefits to children.

One of the first truly objective studies was developed by Dr. Marilyn Story, a researcher who sought to examine the role of family social nudity classification on body self-concept development in preschool-aged children. Dr. Story interviewed 264 children aged three to five years as well as their parents. The children were classified in one of three categories: social naturists or simply put – nudist kids, at-home nudist, and non-nudist kids. Continued…Read full original article…

Plans for Ireland’s first official nudist beach given bum’s rush following objections from residents
Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council was about to erect public notices at Hawk Cliff in Dalkey to warn people of potential nude bathers

Plans for Ireland’s first official naturist-friendly beach have been given the bum’s rush following objections from residents, we have now learned.

Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council was about to erect public notices at Hawk Cliff in Dalkey, Co Dublin, to warn others about seeing bathers in the buff.

But our revelations led to a flurry of complaints including a petition signed by 33 locals opposed to the becoming a “Nudist Friendly Area”.

As a result, the plans have now stalled as officials wish to get the views of councillors “before any further action”.

Irish Naturist Association chief Pat Gallagher had hailed the move as a “milestone for Ireland”, saying: “Every other country in Europe has these kind of signs.”

The signage — to forewarn about seeing punters wandering about starkers — came as a shock to the community who were not informed of the move. Continued…Read full original article…

Winter Nude

It is that time of year again and lets be honest, for many naturists winter is a difficult time of year. We don’t all live in sunny Florida or a Caribbean island so there are going to have to be some sacrifices. We have had to turn the heat on in our home, and the fireplace has been lit a few times already this autumn. Sadly no more trips to Port Burwell, or Hanlans Point until spring. Worst of all, my wonderful all over tan that reached a healthy glow over the summer thanks to frequent doses of natural vitamin D, has already started to fade. We are entering into the “dire straits” of naturism. I have blogged about the perils of being a northern nudie in winter before but rather than just repost those I thought I would have another look at what we do to get through the sub-zero season and look at options others might find useful, a sort of Winter Naturist Survival Guide if you will.

SURVIVING AT HOME

Staying home is likely the easiest and therefore best option for naturists in winter, even if it means a little less nature. We spend a fair majority of our time naked at home already so it makes a good place to start. One of the best decisions you can make is to invest in a smart thermostat. It was not something I considered previously, Tara has had

one for a year or two and now that I have moved in I don’t know how I lived without one. Even a basic model lets you control the current settings, or schedule changes right from an app on your phone. This means we turn the heat off almost completely during the day when we are at work, and it is scheduled to be nice and warm when we arrive home. Should you somehow mange to be going home early, you just make the change from your phone and in the time it takes to make the journey, I am always clothes free within minutes of arriving home. We also keep the temperature very low after we go to bed. A heavy blanket and each other more than does the job of keeping us comfortable while we sleep. We have the heat kick back up about an hour before our alarm goes off. It’s our hope that by turning the thermostat low during the times we don’t need it, it will recoup some of the added cost of keeping the house at a slightly warmer temperature when we are actually there and wanting to be as clothes free as possible. Ours is an Ecobee and we love it, it came with added remote sensors and connection to Alexa (Amazon) but there are plenty of options out there, and I have done no other research other than using the one we have, so I wont make any recommendations.

A nudist’s guide to body confidence

“The lady sat next to me was knitting a scarf, naked, except for flip flops and the guy on the other side was reading the newspaper, totally nude,” says Jane Baker, describing a scene of apparent domestic bliss. Jane, 52, who has been part of the naturist community for over two years, is one of a growing number of Britons who have taken to a starker way of life.

Indeed it seems nudity is having something of a moment, with British Naturism, the UK’s official organisation, noting a sudden increase in membership for the first time in 15 years. With 8,900 members – up from 8,300 last year – we appear to be edging towards the ‘nude not crude’ way of thinking.

More of us are waving goodbye to textile environments—the term used to describe our restrictive, clothed world by those in the know—and embracing our natural state. Continued…Read full original article…

Dublin gets its first ever nudist-friendly B&B
Guests must follow ‘naturist etiquette’ or face being kicked out

Dublin’s first ever naturist-friendly B&B will allow guests to walk around nude – but with a few rules.

The Pine Tree House, located in Dublin 8, is offering rooms for prices as low as €55 a night, the Irish Naturists Association told its members.

Described as “more relaxed than typical guest accommodation”, the B&B will allow guests to walk around in the nude, the Irish Sun reports.

Breach of rules may result in booking cancellation with no refundAirBnB
Breach of rules may result in booking cancellation with no refund

But guests must follow “naturist etiquette” and accept the current law which says: “Public nudity is only deemed an offence when someone is intending to cause fear, distress or alarm, or engages in sexual activity.”

Any breach of the rules may lead to a booking cancellation with no refund.

The AirBnB advert for the property says: “We have a lovely 4 bed period house in the heart of Dublin 8, where you can kick off your shoes and the rest of your clothing if you so wish.

Clothing at the four-bed Victorian mid-terrace home is “optional” which means it’s about to individual guests whether or not they want to wear clothes. Continued…Read full original article…

Why do teenagers turn away from nudism and is that such a big deal?

Toddlers are born naturists and not only literally (although they’re obviously delivered naked). In fact they might well be the most genuine kind of naturist there is, they don’t even question their nudity. Most of them will question clothes though and if they see an opportunity to get rid of them they’ll often take advantage of that. Our memory doesn’t go that far back, but we would like to remember the day when being nude was not an option anymore. Yesterday it was completely normal to run around the garden naked, jump through the sprinklers on a hot summer day while everyone smiled and agreed with your joy. The next day this was not possible anymore… Bathing suits suddenly became the norm.

What went through our heads?

Did we question this at all?

While naturist children get a lot more options to be naked and until a much older age, they are not exactly spared from having to wear clothes, even not when weather clearly asks for the least possible textile. They have to go to school, they have to go shopping and on the non-naturist beaches a naked 10 year old is just not done. Continued…Read full original article…

Skin cancer is more common among men ‘because they avoid sun cream’ as death rates have jumped by 70% over the last three decades
Australia has the highest melanoma deaths – it kills 8.3 people per every 100,000
Slovakia and Slovenia are placed second and third, while the UK ranks 15th
Rates are up in all but one of 33 wealthy countries around the world studied

Skin cancer death rates have soared in wealthy countries across the world over the last three decades, research shows.

Rates of melanoma – the deadliest form of the disease – have risen for men in all but one of 33 countries studied since 1985.

Skin cancer rates and higher and rising faster among men, who experts say are more likely to die from the disease because they're less likely to wear sun cream and protect themselves
Skin cancer rates and higher and rising faster among men, who experts say are more likely to die from the disease because they’re less likely to wear sun cream and protect themselves

Australia has the worst relationship with the cancer, with 8.3 deaths from it per every 100,000 people, followed by Slovakia and Slovenia. The UK ranks 15th with 4.2.

And the rates are worse, sometimes more than twice as bad, among men – in Britain and Spain 70 per cent more men are dying of skin cancer than 30 years ago.

Experts say this could be because men are less likely to use sun cream or protect themselves properly from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Continued…Read full original article…

Naked and Vulnerable Even When Clothed

Sometimes there is a real need for darkness. Darkness is a place where we are the least sure of ourselves, and perhaps that is a good thing. Why do I say this? Well, more often than not, our ego gets in the way of our becoming wiser, more complete beings. In the darkness, we fall asleep and enter into a level of connection to something bigger than the boxes we put around the world and ourselves using our minds. In darkness, we give up control and the doors open to a universe beyond all of our imagining, a world within which we find ourselves at home – curious, isn’t it?

In the underworld of dreams
In the underworld of dreams

When we wake up to the light of a new day, when night is pushed away, we dismiss the dreams, the forebodings, the flying, the embracing of everything that is too absurd for our conscious mind to accept. We know better, or so we try to convince ourselves. And so, we arm ourselves to do daily battle with the outer world, encase ourselves in protective armour whether that be a business suit or other uniform that validates ourselves as “one of them.” Continued…Read full original article…

Would exercise work better if we did it naked?

The ancient Greeks found the nudity practical and pleasurable, and wore draped clothes that could come off in a matter of seconds if the need arose. They discovered that training for athletics while enjoying the advantage had its share of the benefits, but historical evidence also suggests that students attended classes without wearing clothing. The lack of clothing was so common, in fact, that it became part of the tradition of the Olympic Games.

The oldest form of the Olympic Games dates back to 1100 BC and already in the seventh century BC, reports appear of the Spartans discarding their clothes during the competitions. When they were not restricted by clothing, naked athletes won such a high proportion of contests that other competitors began to copy their style of “birth attire”. From then on, nudity became an integral part of the Olympic tradition, until the games were banned by the Christian emperor Theodosius in 393 AD to embrace polytheism.

The good life in Denmark by Giulia Mangione
In her three-year book project Halfway Mountain, Mangione tried to unpick the secret of happiness in the country. Now on show in Italy

In the yearly World Happiness Report, Denmark, along with its Nordic neighbours, continuously ranks in the top three spots. But what is it about the Danes that makes them so happy? “After three years, I still don’t really have an answer,” says Giulia Mangione, whose book Halfway Mountain seeks to uncover this very question.

From Halfway MountainGiulia Mangione
From Halfway Mountain

Mangione started the project in 2014, as part of a photography course she was taking in at the prestigious Danish School of Media and Journalism. Her experience as assistant photo editor at Calvert Journal and interning at MACK Books had helped her “develop a taste for documentary photography” and photobooks, she says, and, after showing a dummy of her project to Corinne Noordenbos – a celebrated educator and former tutor of contemporary photographers such as Rob Hornstra and Viviane Sassen – she decided to expand on it.

Her first draft had been based on Danish traditions, but over the next three years Mangione started to photograph aspects of everyday life in Denmark instead, focusing in on themes that would eventually form the rhythm for the image sequence in the book. She was particularly drawn to twins, old people, nudity, and also hedges – and she spent a whole month exclusively photographing the latter. Continued…Read full original article…
