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.

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.

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.

Nude-A-Palooza Clothing Optional Concert at Cypress Cove Nudist Resort

Nude Concert Raised Nearly $350K for Cancer Research

What do you get when you mix six tribute bands, lots of naked people, and a passion for finding a breast cancer cure? Nude-A-Palooza! Hosted by Cypress Cove Nudist Resort in Kissimmee, Florida, Nude-A-Palooza is an all-day charity concert, now in its 12th year, that has raised nearly $350,000 for breast cancer research. Held on Saturday, October 19 beginning at 12 Noon, the event is open to the public and features six bands with tributes to Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Blondie, Santana, Doobie Brothers and Prince.

“We have different bands every year,” says Regis Pearch, Cypress Cove’s Director of Activities and Nude-A-Palooza event coordinator, “we work hard to include bands and genres for a variety of tastes. The tribute artists are among the best from the Orlando area and it’s amazing how much they look and sound like the originals.”

Not surprising for a nudist resort, Nude-a-palooza is a clothing-optional event where spectators can choose to enjoy the event au natural. “Spending wholesome time outdoors in the nude is what we’re all about here,” Pearch notes. “Many people come to the concert and decide to participate nude, but nudity isn’t mandatory. It’s also about enjoying awesome music and knowing that you’re there to support a good cause.”

That cause is breast cancer research, awareness, and support. According to Cypress Cove General Manager Peter Sewall, “being able to raise nearly three-hundred-and-fifty-thousand dollars over the past eleven years has been an honor for us. In past years, proceeds have gone to Rock Pink and the American Cancer Society. This year, proceeds go to Ribbon Riders a 501(c)(3) nonprofit made up of lady motorcyclists that host fundraising events to help breast cancer patients with their medical costs.”

Tickets for Nude-a-palooza were just $30 per person, and raffle tickets to aid the benefit were only $20 for 40 tickets. For 2019 event information, visit Cypress Cove Nude-A-Palooza or call Cypress Cove Nudist Resort at 407-933-5870.

‘Naturist’ couple’s unusual request for staff at their wedding
An engaged couple are desperately seeking waitstaff for their wedding after three other companies pulled out over one unusual request.

The unnamed couple posted an anonymous advertisement to Bark last weekend offering an above-average hourly rate to any person willing to serve food and drinks at their wedding – but there’s a catch.

Writing that they are in desperate need of help after their wedding staff cancelled due to the “nature of their wedding,” the couple explained that they “don’t require much” from the new staff they’re hoping to hire.

At least the bride will be saving money on a wedding dress, since she won't be wearing one.

“They just need to help serve food and drink throughout the day,” the couple write, which seems simple enough.

“The only thing we do ask, is that they do it naked.”

And that’s the sound of the other shoe dropping.

The couple go on to reveal that they’re naturists, as are their family and friends, meaning they spend most of their time in the buff and have therefore planned a fully nude wedding – waitstaff included.

Naked run organisers in northern France ‘overwhelmed’ by interest
Organisers of a naked 6km running race have had to impose entry limits after being overwhelmed with the level of interest in their event.

The Hauts-de-France Naturistes group were astonished when a post promoting the first ever nude run in Berck-sur-Mer in the Pas-de-Calais département was viewed 600,000 times on Facebook.

The post, featuring a stylised drawing of naked runners, asked viewers: “Do you like to run naked or have you always dreamed of doing it? Come and join us on Sunday, September 22th on the naturist beach of Berck.”

The 6km beach run is organised by a local naturist organisation.

“We didn’t think we would arouse such interest,” says Philippe Lehembre, president of the Hauts-de-France Naturistes.

“It’s true that this is the first time we’ve organised a race, but we do activities all year round,” he told Le Parisien.

In fact local officials became so worried about the potential size of the event that the group was forced to apply for a permit and limit numbers for the race – which consists of two laps around a 3km circuit on the beach – to 60.

World Naturism Day – Nudist Record, July 7, 2019

On Sunday, July 7, 2019, World Naturism Day was celebrated, set by the International Naturist Federation (FNI), and from the Catalan Club Association of Naturism the First Nudist Record was organized in 24 beaches of nudist tradition in Catalonia. The proposal was to make a day of promotion of nudism in the beaches of nudist tradition, to claim it, to demand more respect towards nudists, and to remember the resolution of the Catalan Ombudsman on nudism that asks the municipalities to ensure that nudism can be done in all the coastal municipalities and that indicate the beaches of nudist tradition.

In most of the beaches where the first nudist record was organized, it worked very well, with very good acceptance from the users and with a very good participation. Only on some beaches there were few participants, or the chain could not be made. In the vast majority chains of tens or more than a hundred naked people were made.
The result was that 1,932 people gathered among the different beaches, who had previously been handed a commemorative bracelet and had explained the proposal. In addition, as expected, a count was made of the total number of nudists in each beach that was more than 6000, a fairly important fact.

On some beaches a shared vermouth was also made and commemorative reusable cups of this day were distributed to sensitize against single-use plastic. For this reason the label was used in the networks: #NusxPlaneta

NUMBERS BARE UP Irish naturists getting kit off during heatwave weather with ‘nude meet-up’ at Dublin’s Hawk Cliff
IRISH naturists let it all hang out as they lap up the heatwave and declared: “Come and join us.”

The buff lovers gave the boiling weather the bum’s rush by getting their kit off by the sea.

Our pictures show members of the Irish Naturist Association holding a “nude meet-up” yesterday [22 July 2019] at Hawk Cliff in posh Dalkey, south Dublin.

With the country set for more sweltering sunshine today, nudie bosses stressed the importance of suncream as temperatures soared to 26°C.

And speaking to the Irish Sun last night, INA president Pat Gallagher told how they have been blessed with their bare share of new members recently — and insisted they would welcome new more recruits.

He said: “We hold events across the country on a regular basis and everyone is welcome.

“When you get the good weather, you always seem to attract the numbers.

“Our membership has been increasing in recent times. There are more and more events across the country.

Woman, 52, is the ‘happiest she’s ever been’ after ditching clothes to become a naturist
A WOMAN has opened up about how “whipping of her clothes off” helped her regain confidence after “everything went wrong at the same time”.

Jane Baker, a first aid trainer, hit rock bottom after losing her job and relationship.

But when the 52-year-old spotted an advert in a local paper for an event at a naturist B&B, it all changed for her.

Now the mum-of-four admits that stripping off at the nudist hog roast party changed her life.

Speaking about the experience, Jane, from Carmarthen, South West Wales, said: “I stuck out like a sore thumb when I arrived. [It was] surrounded by three dozen or so strangers, all completely nude.

“But after I whipped off my clothes I felt the most comfortable I had in years.”

HAPPY: When she began naturism it changed her life

Jane, whose confidence was at an all-time low, will never forget her first foray into nudity.

She added: “Everything seemed to be going wrong at the same time and I knew I wanted to get away from it all, but I couldn’t afford a holiday abroad so decided to look for somewhere closer to home, which was when I found Acorns [Naturist Retreat in Tiverton, Devon].

“Driving down there I had to pull over twice and collect my thoughts – I was nervous beyond belief. When I finally got there it turned out to be one the most surreal moments of my life.

“On one side of me was a woman absolutely starkers doing her knitting by the pool, on the other side of me was a gentlemen in the buff doing the Telegraph crossword.”

“But the thing that struck was that, after 10 minutes, I completely forget that everybody was naked and started seeing people for who they are.

“That’s the beauty of naturism. When you take your clothes off you’re quite literally taking away the barriers and that’s the best way to meet new people.”

They were greeted by a bit of a mixed bag of weather but there was definitely no covering up against the elements when a group of naturists descended on Northumberland on Saturday evening.

Members of British Naturism headed to The Alnwick Garden for a special event which saw them have full access to the visitor attraction including the chairs in the Taihaku Cherry Orchard, The Ornamental Lake, The Poison Garden, Bamboo Maze, Ornamental Garden, The Grand Cascade.

They also tucked into homemade food and fresh coffee in The Pavilion Kitchen.

While of course it still raises a few eyebrows, Naturism is perfectly legal and British Naturism has over 9,000 members with events in waterparks, campsites, hotels and art galleries in the UK.

Ahead of British Naturism’s visit The Duchess of Northumberland, who owns Alnwick Garden, said “We are quite sure the naturists will have a marvellous time.

How To (Legally) Celebrate National Nude Day [USA]

Sunday, July 14 is National Nude Day, a day dedicated to celebrating the benefits of naturism and nudism. (While some use the terms interchangeably, other use naturism to refer to a philosophical approach to social nudity, and nudism to refer to a more casual approach to occasional social nudity.) If you enjoy the occasional skinny dip, this is a great time to embrace your naturist impulses and let it all hang out. On the other hand, if you’re only ever naked in the shower, this day is a chance to consider if you really want to live life as a never-nude.

“Naturism offers a unique combination of recreational activity, social engagement, healthy lifestyle, and environmental philosophy all rolled into one,” explains Liz Egger, author of The Complete Guide To Nudism, Naturism & Nudists. Naturists believe that going nude outdoors is beneficial to your health and decreases the risk of certain diseases. For some, there’s also a spiritual aspect — famous naturist Paris Jackson has said that naturism helps her connect with “Mama Gaia.”

Despite common misconceptions, nudism is not sexual, degrading, or dangerous to children, Egger says. “That’s what I call ‘lewdism,’ and it is practiced by those who are unable to separate nudity from sex. For them, nudity is just another sex aid,” she explains. “Real, genuine naturism, as it is practiced by millions of ordinary genuine naturists, is a natural, wholesome and refreshing remedy to the pressures of modern life.”

Naked activism

Nudity as a lifestyle as most of us practice it isn’t the only way the naked body is ‘used’.

The World Naked Bike Ride is a prime example of this. You probably know about it; a world wide event where, at a certain day per location, as many people as possible come together to ride bikes through a city naked, to protest car and promote the safety of cyclists. London is a famous location, as is Bristol and Brussels. Many more towns have a similar event, which is good.Continued…Read full original article…

Local nudist resort sees influx of new members, faces development challenges
Officials at Emerald Lake Resort, Montgomery County’s lone nudist resort, are gearing up for the annual celebration of au naturel fun as National Nude Recreation Week — celebrated this year from July 7 to July 14 — begins Sunday

But despite a growing membership and increased interest in the lifestyle, the resort faces an uncertain future due to a yet-to-be-determined development on the property adjacent to the resort.

Located off Loop 494 in Porter near U.S. 59, Emerald Lake has a long history in the Houston region as the only designated and officially recognized place for the thousands of Southeast Texas nudists to visit sans clothes. The resort, which has been owned by several different people and entities since the 1980s, sits on the former site of a gravel pit that was mined decades ago during construction of U.S. 59. The gravel pit, which filled with natural spring water after it was closed, is the center piece of the sprawling resort that features offices, two bars, a swimming pool, small beach and space for dozens of campers.

With National Nude Recreation Week beginning on July 7, management at Montgomery County's lone nudist resort — Emerald Lake in Porter — say the resort is seeing an influx of new members, especially people who are younger and also who identify as LGBTQ. The resort is hosting one segment of the 2019 World Record Largest Skinnydip on July 13 as part of the week-long celebration.

The resort is hosting one segment of the 2019 World Record Largest Skinnydip on July 13 as part of the week-long celebration.

Jonathan Gockel, the resort’s on-site resident manager, said the resort will be hosting events throughout the celebratory week of July 7-14, capped off by participation in the nationwide World Skinnydipping record attempt, scheduled for 2 p.m., Saturday, July 13.

“We try to be involved with as many of these events as possible to bring awareness,” Gockel said of the event, which is part of the resort’s partnership with the American Association for Nude Recreation.

Activities and preparation for National Nude Recreation Week began in early June when the resort hosted an “Olympics-style” game day involving pool volleyball, cornhole and other activities. Campers and other RVs with license plates from New York, Missouri and other states dotted the wooded resort as members of all ages frolicked sans clothes and cheered on participants in the cornhole contest.

Naked bodies against the “textile invasion”
Between sanctions, prohibitions and judicial resolutions of all kinds, on July 7 is celebrated the International Day of Naturism with calls to participate in more than sixty Catalan beaches

“Naturism is a way of living in harmony with nature, characterized by the practice of common nudity, with the aim of promoting respect for oneself, towards others and towards the environment.” Promotes social equality; In many cases clothing puts artificial barriers, naked people are more equal among them, regardless of social class, ideology, religion … Naturism is a socially constructive philosophy and respectful to everyone, with their differences and just waiting the same respect. “

This is how the Catalan Naturist Club is presented, one of the four naturist associations that are part of the Naturist-Nudist Federation of Catalonia (FNNC), a coordination umbrella that works on the development of nudism in Catalonia and in the Interpel. With the administration, society and the media. On a wider scale, these associations are also part of the Spanish Naturist Federation (FEN) and the International Naturist Federation (FNI).
The latter is the convening of the World Naturism Day, a day of nudity promotion to be held this Sunday July 7 and, in Catalonia, becomes a call for the first nudist registration in more than 60 beaches of nudist tradition. “As a naturist entity we want to take advantage of this day to raise awareness about the need to protect the planet from climate change and the need to protect the Mediterranean Sea and plastic pollution beaches,” he said in the CCN call manifesto.

Festival goers strip for naked fun run covered in nothing but paint
CHEEKY festival-goers took part in a naked fun run today, with nothing but paint protecting their modesty.

The official Naked Run took place at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, ahead of music artists Robyn, Wu-Tang Clan, Vampire Weekend and Underworld hitting the main stage on Friday.

Lasses laughed as they took part in the stunt, some of them holding hands in camaraderie.

There was also some creative flair in the artwork the nudists daubed over their nipples, stomachs, boobs and bums.

Many lasses covered their boobs with naughty handprints.

GOING FOR IT: These women appear to hold hands for courage

Others cheekily painted hearts over intimate areas.

One creatively decided to turn her boobs into giant pink flowers — with a leaf covering her modesty lower down.

Despite it not concealing anything, another lass decided to paint orange bikini bottoms over her lower half.

And it wasn’t just the girls — some lads had funny ideas too — with one drawing elephant ears in a bizare place.

Calgary Nude Recreation to hold clothing-optional wave pool event

A controversial nude advocacy group operating out of Calgary is putting on a clothing-optional wave pool event this week, more than a year after much public outcry over a similar planned event.

Calgary Nude Recreation has booked out a facility that includes a wave pool, hot tub, steam room, water slides and a rope swing for the event set to take place on July 7.

An event organizer who goes by the name Naked Jeff told Global news the group is “all about body-positive values and encouraging people to be comfortable in their own skin.”

Jeff also said his group believes people have the right to be shameless about themselves and be respected “regardless of what they are or aren’t wearing.”

In January 2018, Calgary Nude Recreation cancelled their first planned major swim event at the Southland Leisure Centre after the facility received a volatile threat that caused safety concerns. Petitions against the event also circulated on Facebook in the days leading up to the cancellation.

Jeff said even though the January event had to be cancelled, they have held monthly events since without seeing any threats.
