Full of lovely paintings that might lead you astray: The Renaissance Nude reviewed
Even during the heyday of Michelangelo and Raphael depictions of naked human bodies were not necessarily all about art

Early in the 16th century, Fra Bartolomeo painted an altarpiece of St Sebastian for the church of San Marco in Florence. Though stuck full of arrows, the martyr was, according to Vasari, distinctly good-looking in this picture: ‘sweet in countenance, and likewise executed with corresponding beauty of person’. By and by the friars of San Marco discovered through the confessional that this image was giving rise to ‘light and evil thoughts’ among women in the congregation.

It was removed and eventually sold to the King of France (who was presumably less bothered by that sort of thing). So even during the heyday of Michelangelo and Raphael depictions of human bodies without any clothes were not necessarily all about art. This is one of the themes of The Renaissance Nude, a truly marvellous exhibition at the Royal Academy. This show is packed with lovely things to look at. There are beautiful bodies aplenty, and the roster of artists includes many of the great names in painting and sculpture — Dürer, Titian, Raphael, Signorelli, Memling. As a visitor, that’s really all you need to know.

Why naturism is good for children
Its regular practice improves self-esteem and acceptance of one's own and another's body, as well as inculcating respect towards others and the environment

Eider is a 22-year-old girl from Bilbao who has practiced naturism since her memory reaches her, when as a child she ran naked on the beach with her parents. He just paused "when he was the age of the turkey", because of his own body's shame, until at 16 he enjoyed it again because it gives him "an inner peace, a feeling that you are part of nature as you are . I have been lucky that my aitas instilled this to me: it is a human body and nothing else ". Among the benefits that are associated with the usual exercise of nudityis not only that of a more natural acceptance of the human body (own and foreign), but also a better self-esteem, a greater ecological awareness, respect towards oneself and towards others and even a healthier mind, so it does not exist no reason for the little ones not to do it freely. "When children are young, it is when they have to be taught that it is natural. It has an important educational component that school does not give you, "says Ibán, father of Eider. And Ismael Rodrigo, president of the Naturist Federation of Spain and advisor to the International Human Rights Foundation, adds that "depriving children of the vision of natural nudity transmits a disastrous ideology: that there are parts of the human body that are bad, that should be hidden, even if the parents do not realize it.

"Nudity must begin at home, in the bosom of the family," he continues. "At bath time it's an easy time. Although it is better to extend as much as possible, especially in summer. When you get home, take off not only shoes and part of the clothes, but all of them and place towels on sofas and chairs. At home, your clothes are your home. " If you have a garden or terrace with an inflatable pool, do not put clothes on the children, "and if the area is discreet, do not take it ourselves. If we go to the beach, do not put clothes on the little ones. And in the changing rooms, it is better that the children enter with the mother and the girls with the father, to accustom them to the nudity of the other sex ". All this will teach them to appreciate the beauty of the body regardless of its form, a process in which the role of parents as models is fundamental.Lasexologia.com . "If parents show them that they take care of their body, that they celebrate and accept it by tolerating their" shortcomings "and appreciating" their strengths, "they are offering them a very valuable model." Eider, on the other hand, tells that from his gang of friends there are people who are naked and people who do not, "and you respect yourself the same".

Parade organizer and nudist activist Gypsy Taub shouted out over a megaphone: "Don't believe the lie. Your body is beautiful," and "It doesn't matter what size or shape your body is, it doesn't matter what age or gender. Your body was made by God, and God doesn't make mistakes." Along the route, people stood on the sidelines snapping photos on their phones.

Working Naked

No, I did not forget to put pants on before heading into the office one day. I am not that out of my mind yet. It is a privilege for a select few of us, the opportunity to work from home on occasion.
No, this is not me!
No, this is not me!

In a previous job I was able to do so two or three times a week. My current position requires a more hands on approach so working from home is not something I do very often anymore. However in our modern and very connected world, no one thinks much of it if once a month I play the “have an appointment” or “the roads are terrible” game as an excuse to work from home, avoiding the office and the terrible torment of getting dressed. I hope this is something each of you gets the opportunity to try at least once in your life because being naked while working makes working much more fun. Just for fun, I thought I would document a recent work naked from home day. Continued…Read full original article…

Naked rambler near Lothian nursery sparks fury and bewilderment
A STUNNED passerby told of her shock after spotting a naked man strolling through West Lothian woodland.

The disbelieving dog walker managed to snap a photograph of the unexpected sight as the mystery man brazenly made his way through Invy Park in Livingston yesterday.

She warned others to steer clear of the area and expressed concern at the bizarre behaviour close to Ladywell Nursery and Inveralmond High School.

The man was snapped walking in a patch of woodland in Livingston.

“I walk there regularly with my dogs as do others it’s more the fact school kids use that same track to get to the school wouldn’t want my daughter seeing something like that.”

She said she wanted to “raise awareness” and avoid anyone else inadvertently stumbling across the naked walker.

He was snapped wearing nothing apart from a pair of shoes and socks, with a bag slung over one shoulder.

Bemused posters took to social media to speculate the dark-haired man’s motives for his lack of attire in temperatures of around five degrees. Continued…Read full original article…

Naked Penketh cyclist defended by British Naturism
NATURISTS have defended a man who was seen riding a bike naked in Penketh – claiming the cyclist had committed no crime.

Residents reported a male cycle with no clothes on near to Fiddlers Ferry Boat Yard and Penketh Mount on Sunday afternoon.

Cheshire Police confirmed that it was investigating these reports.

But British Naturism – a members organisation which promotes naturism in the UK – believes that the man was acting innocently.

It cited the Sexual Offences Act 2003, which states that naturists are free to roam in the nude as long as no malice is intended.

A man was seen riding a bike naked near to the Ferry Tavern pub on Sunday.

Andrew Welch of British Naturism said that its members were ‘horrified’ to hear the news that the cyclist had been reported to the police.

He said: “It’s an important point and it frustrates us.

“I think that there is a presumption that a naked man must be up to something, when in fact the law is now incredibly clear.

“There is no action needed unless a crime is being committed.

“Naturism – taking your clothes off specifically because you want to sunbathe or feel the air on your skin – was named as an exclusion from the Sexual Offences Act.

“A naturist just doing his or her normal thing is not committing any kind of crime.

“It doesn’t have to be behind closed doors or in a designated area – anybody can take their clothes off and be a human being without committing a crime, unless they absolutely set out to offend someone.” Continued…Read full original article…

Me and my vulva: 100 women reveal all
First it was breasts, then penises – now photographer Laura Dodsworth has taken portraits of 100 vulvas. She tells Liv Little why.

Towards the end of last year, I published an essay about my vulva – in a book, and then in the Guardian. At 25, I’d spent years considering labiaplasty and having sex with the lights off, because of things ignorant boys had said, as well as some of my friends. I felt a deep sense of shame about my body, which over time became crippling.

‘The little mole looks like a chocolate chip.’
‘The little mole looks like a chocolate chip.’ Laura Dodsworth

It’s this shame that photographer Laura Dodsworth is aiming to overcome with her latest project, Womanhood. In a book and accompanying film for Channel 4, she tells the stories of 100 women and gender non-conforming people through portraits of their vulvas. It’s the third instalment in a series: in Bare Reality and Manhood, Dodsworth photographed and talked to people about their breasts and their penises, respectively (both stories featured in Weekend magazine). The photographer has described the series as an “unexpected triptych”; she didn’t know the project would take this direction at the start (and, when it was first suggested to her, she didn’t want it to). But the more she thought about photographing women’s vulvas, the more necessary she felt it was. Continued…Read full original article…

Is it nude? Fun with censorship

A couple of weeks ago a friendly follower pitched us the website #isitnude. Basically it uses artificial intelligence to figure out whether a picture contains nudity or not. Sounds familiar? If you ever had a Facebook or Instagram ban for nudity (often not legit, but that’s another story) you know exactly why we found this subject interesting. Although we don’t have proof of this, we’re pretty sure that these artificial intelligence algorithms are exactly what social media is using to figure out whether our photos are appropriate or not. Maybe after the machine check a real person does a double check, but we honestly doubt it. Based on some of the photos for which we have been banned, the big anti-nudity machine seems to be nothing more than… exactly… a machine.

We’re not going to bother you with many of the details about how this system actually works, if you want to read more about it, you can find all info Here. What it comes down to is that just like for face recognition it searches for skin patches and based on their positions and sizes the system tries to figure out whether the skin is part of one of those body parts that should remain hidden for the world (according to them, not to us). One could call it “penis recognition” or “female nipple recognition”… One term even more disturbing than the other. Continued…Read full original article…

Why Are People Ashamed of Being Naked?

Genesis tells us about the moment humans first “realized” they were naked, quickly followed by the moment they were first ashamed of being naked — but it doesn’t explain why humans were ashamed. Animals are naked (albeit furry), and for tens of thousands of years, so were human beings. So what changed — and if we wanted to, could we change back, and unlearn our shame? Recently, some British researchers attempted to find out.

Their theory is that the shame of being naked was codified in (most) human societies as a way of protecting mating pairs. (Perhaps it’s no coincidence that humans are among the few mammals that mate for life — and they’re also ashamed of being naked.) The thinking goes that humans’ natural gregariousness and need to interact outside the family group, coupled with nakedness, created too many temptations to stray from the mating pair.

Más allá de Facebook e Instagram: ¿Por qué se censura el cuerpo femenino?
Pixon Project denuncia, con ironía, lo absurdo de censurar los pezones femeninos.

Claudia jugó con los límites de Instagram… y perdió. O perdió a medias, porque encontró un nuevo enfoque para su arte. Eso, y una comunidad entera de creadores que han convertido las redes sociales en su campo de batalla en la lucha contra la censura del cuerpo. Del femenino, sobre todo. Porque en Internet, el paraíso de la pornografía gratuita y accesible para cualquiera con una conexión, el desnudo de la mujer sigue siendo tabú, y el castigo consiste en eliminarlo.

Hay anacronismos que surgen de otros anacronismos. Si lo de quemar sujetadores nos suena muy sesentero, que esa imagen naciera de una de esas fake news tan siglo XXI no es menos chocante. 7 de septiembre, año 1968, un grupo de mujeres se manifiesta a las puertas del centro de convenciones de Atlantic City. Dentro se celebra el certamen de Miss América. En plena explosión de la llamada Segunda Ola Feminista, la traca final de la protesta prometía ser una gran pira en la que se quemaran los “instrumentos de tortura contra la mujer”, con el sujetador como eje central. Se amontonaron cientos de sostenes, se tiraron a los cubos de basura situados en el centro de la protesta… pero el fuego nunca se produjo.

La (no) imagen fue tan potente que se convirtió en símbolo. Una joven reportera del New York Post, Lindsy Van Gelder, mencionó la hoguera de sujetadores en una columna, más como un deseo que como una realidad, pero el suceso caló y los medios replicaron la noticia falsa en grandes titulares. Había nacido un mito, y medio siglo más tarde el pecho de la mujer sigue siendo el arma predilecta de la lucha feminista, y su peor enemigo, la censura.

Un sábado de marzo, la artista valenciana Claudia Sahuquillo amaneció sin cuenta de Instagram. Ningún aviso, sólo un mensaje en la pantalla: “Se ha desactivado tu cuenta porque infringe nuestras condiciones”. Casi 80.000 seguidores a la basura de un momento a otro. Su proyecto #SkinIsTheNewCanvas convertía efectivamente el cuerpo desnudo de la mujer en su lienzo. Y sí, las fotos mostraban pezones. Pintados, pero pezones. Recuperó su perfil el lunes después de justificar, a través de un formulario, que en lo suyo no había pornografía, sino todo lo contrario. Igual que se fue, volvió. Pero a ella el susto sólo le confirmó que lo que hacía tenía sentido. Continued…Read full original article…

Is getting naked the answer to our self esteem problems?
As season 4 of the widely debated Naked Attraction takes to our screens, Leah Crossman comes to terms with the naked body and the huge amounts of positivity that we could all benefit from if we stripped off once in a while.

Naked attraction – take away the dating aspect and it is a wonderful display of naked bodies of all ages, shapes and sizes. Where most people feel awkward viewing such a thing on national television, I was fascinated. To see five real human bodies lined up next to each other, you understand how delightfully unique every single one of them is and it makes you realise that to have differences is not so different after all.

Naked Attraction

Self-confidence, particularly amongst young people, is something that we’re all lacking. This is understandable from a lifetime of unattainable body images being ingrained into us from the moment we signed up to Instagram. Tell us that it’s photoshopped however many times you want, but we will still try the latest fad diet to get that dream body. According to the Centre for Mental Health, one in 10 teenage girls say that they’re unhappy with their body and as our use of social media is only increasing, so are our body insecurities.
Keith Gordon from Naturism in Cornwall agreed: “The more people are used to seeing normal naked bodies and being seen themselves, the more they realise the natural beauty of human bodies without surgical enhancements or chemical introductions. This develops self-confidence and body confidence which leads to greater happiness and fewer distorted pouting photographs on social media.”

I’m not particularly overwhelmed with my body, I have the things I would change just like the next person and social media definitely doesn’t help with that. I long to have the bodies I see every day scrolling down my feed, but by doing that, I’m trying to live up to a body that doesn’t exist – is this because I never really see bodies that do exist?

For generations society has told us to cover up and partly, I think this is to blame for our self-esteem problems as for so long it has been seen as a bad thing to be naked. Older generations are more conservative and in fact, my own Grandma was pretty horrified by the show. She said it was obscene and there was no need for full frontal nudity. But for what reason? The only outcome from that mindset is us having no idea what our bodies should look like because we are never actually exposed to what a real body looks like. In search for this clarification, we have turned to Instagram, where our perception of the human body is distorted by camera angles, lighting and editing software used in excess. When we see a real body, or more importantly our own bodies, we label it as abnormal because it’s not the kind of body we’re used to seeing every day. Naked Attraction unknowingly addresses this struggle by showing us real and very different bodies.

Dove ‘Real Beauty’ campaign
Dove ‘Real Beauty’ campaign

Many have had a stab at this ‘naked taboo’ too. Take the Dove ‘Real Beauty’ campaign, a celebration of real women, in all kinds of variations and exactly the kind of naked, body positivity we need more of. It makes people feel confident in their own bodies to see how different every other body is, but it needs to be more prevalent.
Celebrity stylist, Gok Wan, also campaigned for body confidence to be a compulsory part of the PSHE curriculum in 2011. His work found devastating statistics such as, 70% of participants stated that they did not like what they saw in the mirror and 71% of participants said they felt self-conscious about their body in changing rooms. Unfortunately, just as this scheme was going to be passed, the general election happened and the campaign lost momentum.

I think Gok hit the nail on the head though, we should start with schools and strike youngsters as soon as they discover what an insecurity is. We should teach them that it’s normal to look different to one another and to love their bodies by looking past the photos they see on social media and tell themselves that those bodies aren’t real. Then as Keith from NatCorn mentioned, this would hopefully lead to less edited photographs online, which fuel this dangerous cycle of body issues and mental health problems.

Gok Wan campaign for body confidence
Gok Wan campaign for body confidence

Whether you agree with being naked or not, it can’t be denied that Naked Attraction holds some educational value. The way I see it, the more we get naked, the more realistic our perception of what a real body looks like. We would learn to love and embrace ourselves, instead of resenting ourselves for actually having a normal human body. From having the confidence knocked out of me throughout my teens, to being filled with body positivity as I watched Naked Attraction was almost euphoric. If one episode of Naked Attraction has that kind of power, then isn’t it time to get your kit off?

‘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.

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…

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…

Italian Villa covers nude statues that upset Facebook
THE hosts of a fine dining event at a venue whose nude statues offended the robot censors at Facebook have issued a cheeky apology.

Beales Gourmet found itself in the national news after the Daily Echo told how its dining club had been unable to post its adverts on the social media platform.

Facebook’s algorithms had rejected the ad for their “sexual or erotic” content. It turned out its algorithm had spotted two 1924 Romanesque statues in the grounds of the Italian Villa at Compton Acres. Since the Echo ran the story on Tuesday, Beales Gourmet has featured in The Times, the Daily Mail and BBC Radio Solent.

Commercial manager Justin Cohen has since had the statues’ modesty covered with Beales Gourmet aprons.

He wrote: “Dear Facebook, We’re so sorry you were offended by the fine physiques of our Herculean statues. To spare your blushes, we’ve taken the necessary steps to cover up the offending items. We trust this will be to your liking. Tastefully yours, Beales Gourmet at The Italian Villa.” Continued…Read full original article…

O’Naturel: the first naked restaurant in Paris

During our last days in Canada, the clear blue sky started to look more like a pattern of fifty shades of grey (pun intended). When eventually there were more days when we preferred a good jacket over our naked skin, we knew it was time to go. The Canadians tried to convince us that an Indian summer, when temperatures would rise again, would definitely be coming, our minds were already made up. We had something else to look forward to, we were planning to experience the end of the European season at a place which is still considered the mecca of naturism: The south of France.

It may seem like a big leap to move all the way from Canada to France just for a couple of weeks of sunshine, but for us it would also be a possibility to make a short stop in Belgium afterwards to visit our friends and family who we haven’t seen for more than a year by now. And to be honest… How can we keep telling people that we’re a genuine naturist travel blog when we haven’t written anything about France yet?

The ecological damage we’re making by crossing another ocean by airplane aside, the flight from Canada to France is not as long as one would imagine. We’ve left Montreal around midnight and seven hours later we already touched ground in Paris. Little sleep on the plane (as budget minded bloggers we always prefer price over comfort) and a six hour time difference are the perfect ingredients for a decent jetlag and the smartest thing we could have done was probably take a 15 hour nap. But hey, this is Paris! One of the world’s most magnificent cities! How could we be sleeping when we might as well… eat? Continued…Read full original article…

Nudity in Ancient Greece

While in today’s society the naked body is often seen as something to be ashamed of, in the ancient world nudity was seen simply as a part of everyday life. For the Ancient Greeks, the human body was a sacred thing that was meant to be celebrated in both art and everyday life.

Nude bull leaping

In Minoan culture, while complete nudity was not as prevalent as in other parts of Greece, the Minoan believed in equality for both genders in regards to being bare-chested. A popular sporting event at the time involved young adults, both men and women, who displayed their gymnastic skills by leaping through the horns of a charging bull. For practical purposes, the competitors would wear only a small, thin loincloth to ensure that they had freedom of movement and to avoid any hindrance due to clothing (getting caught up with a bra strap while facing a charging bull is one wardrobe malfunction you definitely don’t want to have).

A few words about why…

Let’s just get this out of the way in the beginning. I’m fat. There I said it. I. AM. FAT. So many people have in their heads that people who enjoy being naked socially are those that are bronzed, in shape and beautiful. As far as the bronzed thing goes well, sometimes yes and sometimes no. Are there people that never miss a day in the gym involved in social nudism? Absolutely. But quite honestly, the percentage of those people are the same as you would find anywhere at any time.

Beyond this point
Beyond this point

In addition, however, there are also MANY people who are considered the “average body” or even the body types that are outside the preconceived norm that are the body beautiful, because they are being unabashedly and honestly themselves. I use average body in quotations as that is a stereotype that we have been sold for years and years through advertising and, well, this isn’t a story about that.

So, why in the world do I enjoy just being naked? There are many reasons, but for now I will just give you a few. Continued…Read full original article…

Debunking the Myths About Nudism

Recreational and social nudism has been a part of the public sphere for a while now, and heading into the new decade, more individuals are dipping their toe into the waters of nudist life and activities.

Some millennials have began embracing nudism out of pure curiosity, and to become members of a group that has been spreading body positivity for straight, gay, trans and non-binary folks alike.

Nudism is more popular in areas that have access to the ocean, like Florida and California. For midwesterners, clubs may be the only option. In Chicago, there are a few clubs that allow nudity.

Inclusion has always been a part of the naturist experience. It has been a core tenet of these groups since their inception, and the friendliness you’ll come to find from these people creates a welcoming, non-critical environment that appeals to the young and old. Steve*, co-founder of the Chicagoland Fun Club puts it this way: “It’s an extremely accepting environment, it’s a great place for you to be yourself. When there are no clothes, there are no judgements or predispositions… It’s a great melting pot of all different types of people you can imagine,” Steve said. With the mindset that no one is perfect, people within the nudist lifestyle acknowledge that and embrace their differences.

Steve’s wife Katie, who helped found the club, said the rise of younger people adopting the lifestyle isn’t surprising to her. “I think we have more younger people because millennials tend to be more accepting of people and their differences. I think there is a lot more hang-up from older generations, where it takes time and age for you stop caring as much,” Katie said. Continued…Read full original article…

Is all nudity sexual? [NSFW]
Do you find creative nudity to be artistic in anyway, or do you simply see all nudity as sexual?

If you see nudity as sexual then I think you need to open your mind a bit and think outside of the box that society has held you captive in likely all of your life. Being closed minded is not always a good thing.

What do I think?
I believe that nudity is NOT sexual and I see it as artistic or beautiful, until people make it sexual for example a person sitting in a chair, cleaning house, or just relaxing nude is not sexual at all and should not be viewed as such. However, a person performing sex acts on the other hand, I would consider that sexual and that should be kept behind closed doors.

Enjoying my backyard nude! – 2017
Enjoying my backyard nude! – 2017

There is a difference between sexual nudity and just plain nudity. Which takes me to my next point in this article.

Warning! Nudity ahead!
If you find all nudity to be sexual then you probably should just leave this post now as this post contains nude images of myself depicting what it is like to live life as a nudist.

The Nudist Lifestyle
Majority of the people I know in real life do not know this fact about me but may learn about it after seeing this post. However, I’ve decided to come clean and be open about my lifestyle choices in 2018. Much like many gay individuals have come forward in recent years however, I’m not gay.

The fact is, I enjoy the nudist lifestyle and I have been enjoying it since I was a child living at my parents house and sneaking around nude whenever possible. Let me explain a bit more… Continued…Read full original article…

Baring all for art’s sake: Cork’s Crawford Gallery to offer nude tours
The hugely successful ‘Naked Truth’ exhibition at Cork’s Crawford Gallery is about to get a whole lot more naked — thanks to a nude tour of the artworks.

The gallery in Cork city centre is to host the first tour from the local Cork Clothes Free group, who will get an opportunity to view au naturel the 80 or so artworks based around the human body.

In another twist, artist Elizabeth Cope, who has a number of paintings at the exhibition, will sketch the group as they view the artworks.

The exhibition opened on July 12 and features works from the likes of James Barry, Robert Ballagh, Dragana Jurisic and Francis Bacon.

It seems to have worked if footfall is anything to go by. Curator Dawn Williams said the gallery has experienced an additional 5,000 visitors each month on average since it opened.

The exhibition does not finish until October 28. Continued…Read full original article…

Cops allow nudist to garden in the buff as long as he doesn’t touch himself
A dedicated nudist has been allowed to garden in the buff by law enforcement officials despite outraging his neighbors.

The man, who lives in Stuart, Fla., was told by sheriff’s deputies he can do yard work in his birthday suit as long as he doesn’t touch himself. Melissa Ny, who lives opposite the naturist, is among those who have complained.

She told WPBF: ‘I came out Sunday night to put the trash out, and I look over and he is bent over, winding up his hose, and I’m like, “That is my view of the neighborhood”. ‘He works on his car, and he does it naked, and everyone has called the police. ‘He is just out there doing his yard work, whatever he needs to do outside – naked.’ Continued…Read full original article…

I Let My Toddler Run Around Naked & I’m Not Sorry

My children spend most of their lives naked as little jay birds. I’m pretty sure our property has been unofficially designated a nudist colony. This past summer, I don’t think my daughter had clothes on when we weren’t leaving the house. But even beyond our borders, my kids have never had any qualms about “putting themselves out there.” Now that they’re getting a little bit older, I try to teach them the importance of “time and place,” but when they were toddlers? Ha. I let my toddlers run around naked in public and I’m not sorry.

Look, it’s not like I defiantly march them nude into libraries and grocery stores to make some sort of body positive, political statement. I don’t look at signs that say “no shirt, no shoes, no service” and, in protest, encourage my kids to disrobe. If we leave the house we put on clothes. But they regularly failed to grasp the concept of which body parts are supposed to be hidden from public view and which are fair game. They’d run out of a public bathroom with their underwear around their ankles (or, when they were younger, remove their diapers all together). My daughter had an inexplicable habit of lifting her shirt or dress above her head everywhere and anywhere for no discernible reason. It’s not that I’d let these things go unchecked — I would casually put an end to their random acts of streaking — I just didn’t get flustered or bent out of shape about it. I’d usually chuckle, snap a picture (because what is parenting if not a decades long blackmail scheme?) and tell them it was time to put their clothes back on. This casual approach is very much intentional. Continued…Read full original article…

A Skinny Dipping Story

I spent a couple of days up in Cairns last week and after hiking up Glacier Rock, I decided to take a dip in Stoney Creek. I wandered all the way up the creek, as far as I could get, which was only a couple hundred metres but it was far enough away from people that I could skinny dip without too many people coming across me! There was a little cascade at the end and it was real pretty and super peaceful.

The water started getting cold so I got dressed again and that’s when 2 older women arrived. I later found out that they were 60 and 70 year old sisters who frequented the area, in particular, this spot.

The elder sister approached me and said “I dont want to offend you love but we’ve come here to go skinny dipping.” My eyes lit up and I laughed, telling them they’d run into the right person!

We all went skinny dipping together and got talking. The 70 year old woman was telling me that she grew up in the 60s and 70s and she started skinny dipping and getting naked in nature when she was in her 20s and has been doing it ever since! She explained that it was completely normal at that time and it’s just what everybody did. Continued…Read full original article…

¿Por qué no vivimos en un mundo perfecto (desnudo)?

Tiempo de confesión: viviría desnudo las 24 horas, los 7 días de la semana, si pudiera, y sospecho que no estoy solo en este aspecto. Odio la ropa. Bloquean la luz del sol, el aire y la mayor parte del cuerpo por el sentido del tacto. Son irritantes, candentes y, en ocasiones, tienen ganas de comer, por no mencionar costosos y mucho trabajo que mantener. ¿Cuánto tiempo se desperdicia lavar, secar y doblar la ropa interior? ¿Cuánta agua, para ese asunto? Creo que hay muchos miles, posiblemente millones de personas, que irían sin ropa si se les diese la oportunidad.

El clima frío y las quemaduras solares a un lado, la ropa no parece ser muy útil. Algunas personas argumentan que es necesario para el adorno, para hacer que nos destaquemos, pero las joyas, la pintura corporal, las perforaciones y los tatuajes también se pueden utilizar para acentuar el cuerpo y expresar la propia individualidad. En todo caso, una sociedad libre de tabúes corporales permite mayores posibilidades de moda. ¿Imagine un atuendo del futuro, hecho sin las restricciones impuestas por la vergüenza? En cuanto a mí, el cuerpo desnudo es infinitamente más hermoso. La evolución nos ha estado diseñando durante millones de años. A través de un proceso de selección sexual, hemos estado decidiendo las cualidades que encontramos más atractivas en hombres y mujeres. Continued…Read full original article…

Eastbourne nudists organise naturist trip to the Towner Art Gallery
Baring all for a quick skinny dip is something many have experienced, but how would you feel walking around an art gallery in the nude? A group of local naturists recently did just that because, while many find nudity awkward, naturists feel that being naked is natural, comfortable and helps them to better enjoy their surroundings.

Philip Baker, of Eastbourne Naturist Swim Club, explained, “Naturism is about using the largest sense organ of the body – that is the skin – in addition to our other senses to fully engage with the natural world.”

Philip and a group of like-minded people recently enjoyed a trip around Eastbourne’s Towner Gallery without wearing any clothes. Members of Eastbourne Naturist Swim Club worked with national organisation British Naturism (BN) to organise and promote the gallery trip. They approached the Towner team with the idea and were delighted with the ‘immediately welcoming’ and non-judgemental response they received. Continued…Read full original article…

A naturist’s view on driving naked.
Driving naked

I talked about this before. Intrigued as I was by the comment of Artur, I decided to look into the Dutch laws about the need to be dressed while driving. I spent several hours going through all kinds of law texts, searched for stuff on a Dutch law website, and I came up with nothing related to the need to be dressed. The only law article that came up several times was the famous 430a, which ‘regulates’ the options for being nude in places. It decrees that you can’t be nude in public places. Places that are obviously not suited for it. Places where lots of people pass by.

This brings up the argument if the inside of your own car is a public place or not. I would assume it’s not. In a public place everyone can come in and sit down. That is not the case with my car. Now you may argue that it’s public enough for people to look inside and see a nude person in there. Correct. However, in the Netherlands it’s legal to be nude in your own house without having all drapes or curtains closed. People looking inside do so on their own risk.

Also it is okay to be naked in outside places where people can ‘look in’, meaning that you can be naked without having to take precautions not to be seen (a.k.a. ‘offend’ others). Places like this, on the right. Hardly a through road, right? Continued…Read full original article…

Little boy asks mum awkward question after seeing next door neighbour sunbathing naked in the garden
The mum is at her wit’s end with her neighbours – but people can’t agree on whether they should get their kit off in the garden or not

We can end up finding out quite a lot about our neighbours from living next to them.

Seeing their familiar faces come and go every now and again, we find out a bit about their habits and what they like to get up to.

But what happens when you get more than you bargained for?

‘It’s not about sex’: The naked truth behind Perth’s oldest nudist club
What’s the strangest situation you’ve ever found yourself in? Whatever it is, I think I’ve got you beat.

On Saturday evening I was asked to judge the best-dressed competition at a Perth nudist club’s Italian night. That’s right. Best. Dressed. At a nudist club.

How did I get here?

Feel the sun on your bare skin at Perth's only nudist hideaway.

Italian night at Sunseekers Nudist Club is not for the faint-hearted. A guest of the club on Saturday, I was nervous before I’d even set foot on the property. I didn’t grow up in a nudist family, I have no nudist friends, I really like clothes.

What was I doing there? I was curious.

Were these people swingers? Would there be an orgy? Would it be sexy? Continued…Read full original article…

200 naked people vs the police: The battle to be nude on East Yorkshire beach
Fraisthorpe beach near Bridlington has long been associated with naturism

Despite being one of the East Yorkshire coast’s most popular picturesque beaches telling someone you are heading to Fraisthorpe will still produces a wry smile.

Today the beach is full of families and you can even enjoy a drink in the new Cow Shed Café.

Facebook pulls Auschwitz photo for nudity
Social media giant later apologizes to Anne Frank Center for decision.

Facebook deleted a post this week that included an image of starving children in Auschwitz because of its policy against nudity.

The post was shared by the US-based Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect last week. It linked to an article on the DailyKos about the need for Holocaust education in the United States.

But on Wednesday, the Anne Frank Center complained on Twitter that Facebook had deleted the post.

“Hi Facebook, you removed our post promoting the need for Holocaust Education for apparently violating community standards,” the organization wrote. “You haven’t given us a reason, yet allow Holocaust Denial pages to still exist. Seems a little hypocritical?”

Around six hours later, Facebook responded to the Twitter post.

“We put your post back up and sent you a message on FB,” the official Facebook account tweeted. “We don’t allow nude images of children on FB, but we know this is an important image of historical significance and we’ve restored it. We’re sorry and thank you for bringing it to our attention.” Continued…Read full original article…

Nude paintings removed from cathedral art display after complaints of ‘distress’
A SERIES of nude paintings have been removed from a cathedral’s art exhibition after they “distressed” visitors and worshippers.

The four acrylic canvas works by local artist Joe Greenwood were on display at Portsmouth’s Anglican cathedral as part of a summer show by the Portsmouth and Hampshire Art Society (PHAS).

But a cathedral spokesman said that a number of visitors complained about the paintings, leading to the decision to remove them.

Facebook rejects Montreal museum’s ad over Picasso nude
A Canadian museum whose ads featuring Picasso nudes were rejected by Facebook says it is pleased the social media giant is reviewing its nudity policy.

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts online ad for its big summer exhibit was blocked because it showed abstract breasts painted by the modern master.

The museum eventually had to reach out directly to Facebook in order to get the posts authorised.

The painting used “wasn’t shocking”, said museum spokeswoman Pascale Chasse.

In fact, Pablo Picasso’s Femmes à la toilette was the one of the main promotional press images for the show, which looks at the influence of African art on Picasso and the artist’s subsequent impact on contemporary African artists.

It was being used in print and television ads and on the main banner hanging outside the museum in downtown Montreal. Continued…Read full original article…

Farmers strip down to help mental health services in rural and remote Australian farming communities
MADDISON Smith is, of course, normally fully clothed while she’s out on the land, but this time she has stripped down for a very important reason.

MADDISON Smith is a fourth generation sugar cane farmer from the Mackay region.

She’s normally found working hard on the farm, but she’ll soon appear in a calendar as a nude model.

She’s one of many farmers who have agreed to strip off as part of a push to promote mental health issues and prevent suicide in rural and regional Australia.

The movement was started by Ben Brooksby, a fifth generation farmer. Most days, the 25-year-old can be found working alongside his father and grandfather on the family farm in regional Victoria.

But he’s just returned home from a trip across Australia collecting photographs of nearly naked farmers. Continued…Read full original article…

How to act around nudists

For almost two years we have been publishing two articles per week for nudists. Tips, tricks, stories, Naturist Talks and lots of reviews of all the nudist places we’ve visited.
Well, sorry fellow nudies, but we thought it was time for a change. This article is not for you. This one is for the textiles.

The idea was brought to us via an e-mail from one of our readers. Many nudists have textile friends and family and even though they know a little bit about the lifestyle, they know you like to be naked and they know that it’s not about sex, sometimes it’s still a bit awkward. Especially when they unexpectedly ring your doorbell and suddenly you’re standing there butt naked in front of them.

Their cheeks turn red.

They have no idea where (or where not) to look.

They want to say something but the words are not coming. Or certainly not in the right order.

And you wonder… “I told her that I was a nudist, right?”

What were you supposed to do? It’s your best friend for god’s sake. Should you be putting on pants and a bra for your best friend?

Some time ago we already gave you this basic guide for living with a nudie that you could send around to all your friends, family and colleagues to explain in a nutshell what nudism is all about. Here’s an addendum for the guide, which explains how THEY should behave.

So actually… This article is for you anyway. Continued…Read full original article…

Naked Before God – Just As We Are

I have a friend, Allen, who I met a number of years ago at the NOOK, an online social network. For a number of years we have exchanged emails as well as the occasional interaction at the NOOK. I find it interesting that those who become friends at various social media sites soon find a way to enlarge the connection via other media.

“one will never have to say, when one draws one’s last breath, there was never a time when I felt alive.”
“one will never have to say, when one draws one’s last breath, there was never a time when I felt alive.”

Sometimes, as Allen pointed out to me, the plumbing of the depths of the other happens over time simply through reading blog posts. Since I write a lot, others can get to know me better through my words, especially when they are read over time. Time has a way of exposing the core of who one is. As a result, our friendship over time has become stronger. When I felt it was time, I asked Allen to allow me to bring some of his images and words here. Because he has learned to trust me, he agreed. Continued…Read full original article…

The benefits of sleeping naked

Depending on whose statistics you believe, about 10 to 25 percent of the world population sleeps in the nude. That’s not much. Of course we can understand that if you’re an eskimo living in an iglo or a nomad sleeping on the floor of a tent in the desert at temperatures going well below zero that you may perfer to put some socks on, but other than that, why on earth would you chose to wear clothes in bed? And yet, more than three fourth of the world population prefers to do so.

We’ll let you into a little secret here… wait for it… YES! We sleep naked!

Since long before we became nudists, or better, since we started to consider ourselves nudists we have chosen the option to sleep in the buff. We never actually gave it a lot of thought really, it always felt natural. Pyjama pants just got stuck in our butts, causing annoying wake-ups in the middle of the night involving pulling and squeezing and turning and meanwhile waking up our partner who was not particularly happy with the sudden energy in the bed either.

At least, that’s how we imagine that things would go, we sleep naked since way before we met each other and here’s why you should too. Continued…Read full original article…

Man fined for naked sunbathing in Ballymahon on hottest day of the year

Longford Court heard that Glen Wrather was sunbathing in a communal area of Thomond Court, an apartment complex in Ballymahon on the 6th July last.

He told his solicitor Brid Mimnagh that it was 31 degrees on the day in question – one of the hottest days of the year so far.

The court heard that a woman who was putting clothes on her line had to pass him and saw he was sunbathing face down, naked and became upset. Continued…Read full original article…
