Naturism is not only on week-ends and holiday

A lot of naturists I’ve talked to think about naturism only on week-ends and on vacation. They pick a place to relax because it’s naturist, but they rarely enjoy naturism on a daily basis. As I am writing this post, it’s Monday evening and I’m fully naked, enjoying the freedom of being clothes-free.

Naturism should not be associated with a time of the week, the month or the year. Naturism can be lived whenever and wherever you wish, weather and temperature permitting, of course.

Looking out the window

The moment you are home, consider taking your clothes off. For instance, if you sleep naked, which you should consider if you are not yet (read why), when you wake up, just stay naked. Prepare and get your breakfast naked. Push the moment you need to dress to the last minute.

In the evening, when you get back from work, have a shower to relax and stay naked for the evening. If you do so, you will have spent more than half of your day naked. You’ll be naked from the moment you come home in the evening to the moment you leave home the next morning. Why should you do this? Because it’s incredibly comfortable. If you are naturist on the week-end, be naturist during the week as well.

But, what is you live with others? Bring them along! If they are reluctant getting naked themselves because they are not naturist, have them accept your shared nudity. It’s a wonderful way to reinforce your self-confidence. And who knows, they may eventually join you.

Sail naked in beautiful Croatia!

by Jim Hutton BN Sailing Group leader

For the last three years, the British Naturism Sailing Group has organised a flotilla to the Ionian Sea of Greece. This year we decided for a change to explore the highly rated sailing of the Croatian coast – and we were not disappointed. We found well-equipped marinas, beautiful scenery, quiet bays, and historic ports to visit

In past years we have based our trip on a commercially run flotilla, with lead skipper etc. Our trip this September was based instead on self-chartered boats, each with a BN member as skipper. This approach worked really well – each boat was free to do it’s own thing, to choose where to go and what to do, and to meet up with the other boats if and when they wished to. So some nights we were together in a quiet bay, other times some of us moored in a smart marina, or on the quay of an old fishing port. We shared group meals, or found our own special place, or cooked on board. In fact we did meet up quite a lot, and the whole group had a lot of fun together.

Croatia has a reputation for being an expensive place to sail.  This was not our experience – cost per person for the two weeks averaged around £1000 including boat charter, flights, transfers, mooring fees, fuel, in fact all costs except food & drink.

This year’s trip was so successful that we have already planned a repeat.. The dates are 5 – 19 September 2020, to Croatia again.  No sailing experience is required. Four boats have already booked, and another still has places.  So if you are interested in joining us, do get in touch. We have negotiated special ‘early bird’ discounts, so the sooner the better !

I was born and grew up in Grimsby, at the time the world’s biggest fishing port.  My grandfather was a trawler skipper, and other members of the family were involved in the fishing industry.  I learnt to sail dinghies in Grimsby Dock. For many years I sailed with friends on their boats, never imagining I could skipper myself.  But one year I went on a Sailing Holidays flotilla to Greece with a naturist friend,, and discovered it was possible.  I took all the exams, and since then have skippered in Greece, Turkey and Croatia – always with naturist crew.   I love sailing naked, and now lead an annual naturist flotilla.

Hotel only for daring

For years, Europe has been projected as the capital of nudism or naturism. One of the reasons is because it is attributed to France, the birth of the Naturist-Nudist movement. While Spain has been one of the countries with the largest number of beaches dedicated to this practice. According to the Spanish Naturism Federation, they exceed 400.

However, in the whole world there are a large number of beaches that embrace this philosophy. In fact, an article published in 2018 by the CNN news portal in Spanish, listed 12 of the best nudist beaches in the world. Among these: Mpenjati Beach, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa; Cap d’Agde beach, France; Es Cavallet Beach, Ibiza, Spain; Red Beach, Crete, Greece; Buhne 16, Sylt, Germany; Lady Bay Beach, Sydney, Australia, located precisely on the other side of the world.

Snooker in the Pool

The beaches of Massarandupió, Bahia, in Brazil were also part of the list of beaches aimed at this tourism sector; Little Beach, Maui, in Hawaii; Black’s Beach, La Jolla, in California; Wreck Beach, Vancouver in Canada; Zipolite Beach, Oaxaca in Mexico; and Anse de Grande Saline, in St. Barts.

But even closer to Puerto Rico — for those interested in joining this naturist-nudist philosophy or who are curious about this tourist trend — there are other alternatives available in the Caribbean. For example: Ocho Rios and Hedonism II, both in Jamaica, which are openly and officially nudist. The latter has become very popular since it is not only a Caribbean paradise, with beautiful landscapes that embraces the nudist philosophy, but because the hotel complex of the same name was developed on its premises, where guests can give free rein to their most daring fantasies. One of them walking naked 24 hours a day, if they wanted to.

Colorado City Council Decides 11-Year-Old Girls Can Now Walk Topless In Public

Stunningly Brave Victory For Equality And Over-Sexualization Of Minors

Following a ‘Free the Nipple’ campaign in Fort Collins, Colorado, feminists have won a victory allowing women–and girls as young as eleven–to be bare-breasted in public.

After a three-year lawsuit, activists have won a case where a topless ban from city law has been removed by Fort Collins City Council.

Colorado City Council Decides 11-Year-Old Girls Can Now Walk Topless In Public

The removal of the law will allow girls as young as eleven to legally walk around the city topless, costing the city over $320,000 in fees.

According to Fox Denver 31:

The Coloradoan reported that Fort Collins City Council agreed Tuesday to remove language in the public nudity code that barred women and girls over age 10 from exposing their breasts in public.

City officials say the ban is expected to be removed Sept. 17.

Officials say a district court judge and a federal appeals court have ruled against the policy in the past two years.

City Council voted in May to stop defending the ordinance in court after spending about $322,000 on a three-year lawsuit.

Officials say the deadline to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court passed, so now the city cannot enforce a topless ban that only applies to women.

‘I hate clothes’: What life is like as a practising nudist

Naturist Caryn Kettle, 63, always keeps her Melbourne house very warm, especially on chilly winter mornings, so that she can do her housework in the nude. “I hate clothes!” she says.

A naturist, or a nudist, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is “a person who goes naked in designated areas”– like private homes and gardens, designated beaches, and specific public spaces.

So, what sort of home features do you need to practise a naturist lifestyle?
Stocksy So, what sort of home features do you need to practise a naturist lifestyle?

Kettle, vice-president of the Australian Naturist Federation, has been a naturist since she was 16. “It’s lovely feeling the wind on your skin. It’s liberating in that I don’t have to think about what I am going to have to wear today – that takes a huge weight off my mind,” she says.

Anything can be done sans clothing, she says. “You can vacuum, you can dust, you can polish, you can do the washing, you can chop wood.”

For hygiene reasons she draws the line at cooking nude. “Men shouldn’t barbecue naked!”

A Christian Naturist Retreat!

Hello, everyone!

I haven’t written for a while… but that might be changing soon… more on that below.

I’m just letting you know about a new Naturist Retreat that is being built in Livingston, TX (near Houston). And it is specifically Christian!

It’s being established by a pastor named Jim Moore.

Eden Ranch

How could a Pastor do such a thing, you ask?

Well, it’s like this… when someone comes up to you as a pastor and asks you to help them talk their Christian friend out of being a “nudist,”

  • and you agree to do so… 
  • and you’re responsible enough to come into such a meeting fully prepared with all of the biblical direction that speaks to the issue… 
  • and you’re honest enough to seek what the Bible really says… 
    and you’re committed firmly to the authority of God’s Word rather than the traditions of men…
  • and you discover that the bible doesn’t actually say what you expected it to say…
  • and you tell the person that asked you to meet their friend what you actually found in the bible..
  • and so you suggest that they might want to JOIN their nudist friend instead…

Then… you ask yourself… “So, what am I going to do now?”

Devoted naturist loves every minute being naked

A member of the world’s southernmost nudist club wishes she could be naked all the time.  

Alison Bennett is among 28 members of Southern Naturally, which is near the western Southland town of Otautau. 

“All my life I’ve been a naturist … I love it,” she says.

“It’s a bugger when you’ve got to put your clothes on to go to town.”

Members of the world's southernmost nudist club, Southern Naturally, from left, Lynn Cooke, Alison Bennett, Scott McGowan, Russell Cooke and Wilma Kremer, will be celebrating National Nude Gardening Day at the club's property, near Otautau, on Saturday.

Southern Naturally is the only nudist club in Southland and was formed 40 years ago.

Bennett, 52, said It was not compulsory to strip during visits.

“When people come out we don’t tell them to get their gear off … you can wear clothing if you want.”

The club’s members, including eight from Dunedin, range in age from 30 to 82 and are mostly retired. When Bennett joined 14 years ago there were only eight members.

Indoor sports for the naked human

And perhaps not so human, but I shall leave that up to you.

Being naked and doing sports is fun for most people. Of course, there are always people whose body isn’t up to sports, either never was or isn’t anymore.

For those who enjoy it, having an indoor option is important. As you can see in the above image, the volleyball players have a lot of fun. In the sun. The times, they are a’changing though, as Bob Dylan already knew long ago. The times are bringing low temperatures, rain, cold things and a general unpleasantness for being outside. I am sure you see my point already.

Naked volleyball – a naturist’s favourite, it seems.
Naked volleyball – a naturist’s favourite, it seems.

This depends a lot on where you live and how many nude sport-folks you can round up. Going to a gym for a nude sports hour once a week sounds great but there’s hardly a gym that wants to open up for two people. Still, a nude gym hour is an option.

Here in the Netherlands, many swimming pools have an evening per month for nude swimmers. Sounds like a good option too – unless you’re not in the Netherlands. Sorry.

Following swimming is the good old sauna. Nude in the heat, what is better?

Social nudity in naked places and open spaces

“Clothing-optional” is another phrase for nudity beaches, nudity retreats, and nudity resorts. Naturalists’ destinations around the world offer naked fun in the sun. “Naturist” is another word for naked—diving, dining, and dancing in your birthday suit. Social nudity refers to naked people being naked together.

Peruse the 15 best nude beaches on planet Earth. “Although still taboo in many places, casting aside your clothes at the shore has become a customary practice around the world in recent times. From rocky coastlines to talcum powder fine sands, and big city bays to secluded shores, there are now hundreds of beaches where it’s perfectly legal (or at least de facto legal) to sunbathe, swim and otherwise frolic beside the sea in nothing more than your birthday suit,” according to a CNN article. .

There is an American Association for Nude Recreation and National Nude Weekend is in July. Who knew? You can stay in the USA and bare your soul—I mean your body. TripSavvy lists the best clothing-optional resorts and nude beaches in the USA.

Hmmm. Suitcases would be lighter on airplanes.

However as a golden oldie, a public nudity scene is not on my Bucket List for a relaxing get-away trip. Viewing wrinkly old gals and hairy geezers is not my idea of a vacation paradise. Old folks, put some clothes on and cover up those shiny heinies. But there is no such place as a nude beach for senior citizens—or is there? Surf the internet and read about clothing-optional lifestyles for oldsters. That’s fancy talk for aging bums in the buff and topless tanning on a towel.

Blind Creek Beach is a nudity place in Ft. Pierce, Florida. Old geezers would certainly go blind if they get a gander at my saggy female parts. And I do not want to see male body parts waving in the wind either.

The old ladies I know don’t have a desire to take their aging bodies back in public places. We can celebrate ourselves by being fully clothed—and drinking Margaritas at an outdoor tiki bar.

But what if you decide to vacation at a nude place?

The TravelSmart website says, “Once you’re on a nudist beach, don’t stare, gawk, point, or giggle.” And slather sunscreen on exposed areas. Put a towel under your bare bottom when you lounge on chairs.

Art In The Nude Report

On the 9th April, a mild Saturday evening, in Newcastle two hours north of Sydney, a group of people lined up outside the Newcastle Regional Art Gallery in preparation for a private tour of the gallery. The tour was organised by the ROSCO Nudist Club and made possible by the Australian Naturist Federation (ANF) with some help from TAN magazine. The evening provided a rare opportunity to visit the gallery and have a guided tour while naked.

The idea behind the tour was to provide not only a unique experience for Naturists, but also to provide the opportunity through the resulting media exposure to spread the word about the existence of the ROSCO Club and the ANF, as well as providing the opportunity for members of the public who may have an interest in social nudity to participate in an organised event.

As an added incentive for those looking for “an excuse” to attend the event, it was advertised that profits from the evening would be donated to the McGrath Foundation’s mission to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increase Breast Cancer awareness in young women. A total of $500 was collected via donations from the night.

The event also saw the issue of media releases and a number of radio interviews and press coverage resulted. It is important to let people know that Naturism is a legitimate lifestyle and such mainstream media coverage is a great way to normalize clothes-free living in our society.

At the appointed time the doors were opened and the gallery staff directed those in attendance to a secure room where they could get undressed.

People with cancer have posed for beautiful portraits to own their mastectomy scars as a show of strength against the disease

So empowering.

Sixteen incredible men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer have taken part in an empowering photoshoot for Stand Up To Cancer, giving an honest and unfiltered look at the disease.

The inspiring project, called Defiance, has been released as part of Stand Up To Cancer, a joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, and aims to showcase the gritty and raw reality of cancer. These men and women have embraced scars and changes to their bodies, big or small, as a show of strength against the disease.

Stand Up To Cancer

Shot by photographer Ami Barwell, the project is a follow-up to her Mastectomy series in 2017. Following an outpouring of positive responses to her previous photographs, Ami has broadened this series beyond mastectomy scars, to reflect a diverse range of experiences and we’re so here for it.

Speaking about the poignant series, she said: “To me, Defiance is an act of rebellion. Cancer isn’t pretty, it can be dark, painful and destructive. But we aren’t playing to cancer’s rules. These people are strong, beautiful and, most of all, defiant.

“My previous Mastectomy series was inspired by my mum, who has had breast cancer twice, and a mastectomy, so this was a subject very close to my heart. I wanted to raise as much awareness for breast cancer as possible, showing women baring their scars in a series of gritty and honest portraits. I received an overwhelmingly positive response, with emails from women worldwide explaining how my photographs had inspired them and given them strength. For many, these were the first photographs they’d seen showing women post-mastectomy as beautiful, sexy, strong and amazing. I knew I had to carry on raising awareness with Stand Up To Cancer and empowering people through my photographs.”

Body Image Rollercoaster

“Boy am I out of shape!”

That’s what I thought when I looked at this photograph after it was taken. And it’s true, I haven’t been diligent in recent years at getting exercise. As the rigors of life have taken over my schedule, I’ve found myself with less time to tend my own garden, and so I’ve let some things go.

Body Image

At the same time, I’m not that out of shape. In fact, I’ve been running 3-5 miles per run for several months now. This could very well be the body of an athlete, albeit one who has gained a few pounds since starting to run again.

I run because I love it and this body completes the routes I set for it. I’m slower than I was half a lifetime ago, but I enjoy every minute of it. I no longer run out of hatred for my body, out of a desire to reduce my weight drastically because I have disordered thinking about my body. In fact, I run because I love my body and all the trials it has helped me to survive up until now.

Reflections on naturism and religion

This is one of those topics that we have been trying to avoid during all those years of blogs. The combination of naturism or nudism and religion. The reason for this is that it is such a difficult issue to take a stand. There is no right or wrong. There is no evidence to trust. It is only about ideas, beliefs and opinions. And it can be seen from so many different angles. Is it possible that naturism and religion go hand in hand? Or does one automatically exclude the other? And who decides on that? The naturists? Christians, Muslims or Buddhists? God?

Reflections on naturism and religion

We have to underline that there is a very important word in the title of this blog post: “Musings”. What you will read here are nothing more than reflections. Thoughts and ideas. Do not wait for the definitive proof that naturism and religion go together. Or just not. You will not find it here. But we believe it is an interesting topic on which the muse. Maybe this blog could even help you on your spiritual path in the search for the right answers.

The idea of ​​writing this post existed for quite some time, but recently it was triggered by a discussion that began in our blog post about the biggest fears of starting nudists. In short, Andrew (a long-time Naked Wanderings follower) had seen “the light” and turned against us. Tell our other readers not to listen to our “false teachings” because God does not want anyone to be a nudist.

A Cordovan running that is already a classic in the mountains, aimed at men and women from 18 to 80 years.

The marathon “Cross Country Nudist” already has a confirmed date for this new cycle 2019 that will once again take place in the Yatan Rumi Naturist Reserve located on Provincial Route 28, on the way to Los Gigantes and a few kilometers from Tanti.

It is a curious and controversial Punillense career, which was born as controversial in 2005 and that after 14 years, it is affirmed as a Cordovan running classic, characterized by running free of clothes and traveling a whole path in the middle of the mountain landscape.

Marathon nudist in Tanti

This year, the competition will be held on December 8 from 10:30 in the morning and will be divided into two categories: Elite (6 kilometers) and Amateur (3 kilometers), for both men and women 18 – 80 years old

It should be noted that being a nudist sports activity , it is governed by the standards of the International Nudist Federation, so that nudism is a mandatory requirement for all participants and the audience in the place. Promoting thus, the respect for the own body, the other people’s, and for the nature.
