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…

Nude Home Parties
Where do you start with nudism?

The nude beach or a nudist resort are obviously the most common answers but they do not necessarily reflect the truth. Most often, nudism is something that starts at home. The reason why people tend to name certain social nudist places as their first “nude experience” is just because often home nudism is not really seen like nudism at all. When people asked us in the past about when and where we had become nudists, we would have answered “around 2010 at camping Bleesbruck in Luxembourg”. Now we know that this isn’t exactly true. Ever since the day we left the metaphorical nest (being our parent’s house) we did spend a lot of time in the nude. We slept nude, we walked from the bedroom to the bathroom to the kitchen for a midnight snack in the nude. On lazy Sundays we often didn’t wear much clothes either. We were nudists without even ever considering the term.

Our steps into social nudism all happened somehow by accident. If we hadn’t gotten that coupon which led us straight to a nude sauna and if the textile part of that campground in Luxembourg hadn’t been so full and loud, chances are that we would never have discovered the fabulous nudist lifestyle. It’s very likely that our nudism would have stayed between the four walls of our apartment.

There are many statistics about the amount of nudists per region or country. In western countries like most of Europe and the USA this number tends to be around 5% of the population. Which isn’t much. If you’d count the number of people who sleep with a teddy bear, who eat hamburgers every day of the week or who think that the world is flat, it’s likely that they could outnumber the nudists. This is mainly because even though many people like to spend some time in the nude, they don’t necessarily consider themselves nudists or naturists. Many people enjoy nudity at home but don’t feel any need to be naked around strangers. Some live in countries where social nudism just does not exist or is even illegal. And many others have concerns about nudist places or gave it a try but didn’t like nudist resorts. They like to be nude in their house and garden. But maybe it would be better if it was shared with some others. Continued…Read full original article…

That Naked Feeling

We’re headed on vacation in a week. Just a quick getaway for my wife and me. We’re headed to Cypress Cove in Kissimmee for the first time. I’ve heard good things and considering that we live in the Midwest U.S. and haven’t felt 75+ degrees since October, understandably, we can’t wait to go.

Yes, I’ll be writing a blog post about our experiences and why (or why not) Cypress Cove would be a great destination for the first time or new naturist/nudist couple. Today though I woke up extra excited for our trip. It’s still a few days away but for me, the trip has already begun in my head.

While most of our friends don’t know too much about the naked vacations my wife and I go on throughout the year, the few that do always hit on the same topics. “Isn’t it really sexual?” Nope, not at all. I know it sounds impossible, but it is actually not a sexually charged environment at all. It feels more freeing and open. No one is judging one another. It’s all about body acceptance and enjoying the day in your own skin. I’ll explain more later.

“Isn’t it embarrassing walking around naked with your privates hanging out?” It’s actually pretty comfortable and when you’re naked and everyone around you is naked too, you really don’t notice. I’ll admit, at first it was unnerving walking around without clothing but that lasted all of about 15 minutes. And surprisingly, when you’re around other naked people, you really don’t notice it after awhile. Your skin is your “clothing.”

“What do you do all day when you’re naked?” Well, it’s really what won’t you do… which brings me to the purpose of this post. I can’t wait to get to Cypress Cove. I’m excited to see their property because they offer so much to do. Yes my wife loves laying by the pool and tanning in the sun or skinny dipping in the pool. I do too. But for me, it’s all that plus everything else that you can only experience when you are at a safe, clothing optional/nude property and surrounded by other like-minded individuals. Let me explain because here’s where a naked vacation is unlike any other trip you’ve ever had. Continued…Read full original article…

BadeLand Wolfsburg – My first experience of a German Sauna

Until you’ve sweated it out in a full-on German sauna, you can’t really claim to be a proper sauna aficionado. Happily it’s an experience I can now tick off my bucket list, courtesy of a free morning while on a work trip to Wolfsburg in Lower Saxony.

Wolfsburg is of course the home of Volkswagen, and the famous VW logo is everywhere in this city. A little research identified BadeLand (www.badeland-wolfsburg.de), a waterpark with separate adjoining sauna area as a suitable facility. Located on the River Aller, it’s within walking distance (25-30 minutes) of the iconic Volkswagen factory with its four chimney stacks dating back to 1938, as well as Volkswagen’s Autostadt museum and customer centre which is well worth a visit. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel is located next door to BadeLand for anyone looking for a convenient place to stay.

The fact that BadeLand’s website is in German only caused a few reservations about whether I would have problems finding my way around, but the helpful lady at the desk explained in perfect English that a half day entry fee of €16.20 would allow unlimited access to both the pool area and the sauna area. If you need towels, they are €2 each, and flip-flops are also recommended – I brought my own. You do need to have swimwear to use the pool side, whereas the sauna area is textile free.

At check-in you are given a wristwatch type sensor that allows access to the various areas, as well as locking your chosen locker and recording any drinks or other items you purchase in the bar area.

Changing facilities for the sauna area are unisex, though there is also a dedicated female changing area. So it was off with the clothes, and with a towel wrapped around me, into the fray. Continued…Read full original article…

Laying bare the real truth about naturism
Taking in the warmth of the sun on your bare butt while trying not to stare at anyone’s penile jewellery is easier said than done, says Kelli Maria Korducki.

In the Canadian city where I used to live, there was a nude beach where I spent a lot of time.

It was no rare occurrence to find, near the beach’s northern boundary, a small but fervent cohort of nude baby boomers distributing Naturism 101 pamphlets.

IStock

In an outsize font on an ancient webpage they’d set up, the beach naturists dared visitors to “!!BE NATURAL AND FEEL THE FREEDOM!!’’ They outlined etiquette (no come-ons, no sex) and suggested recreational pursuits (flag football, a potluck).

The naturists could be a little doctrinaire — once, someone wearing nothing but a Tilley hat chided me for my bikini bottom, bellowing, ‘‘Way to be clothed!’’ — but they would usually feign tolerance at the beachgoing public’s ignorance of their framing principles.

“Naturism” and “nudism” are used interchangeably to describe a doctrine of communally convening outdoors in the buff.

But “naturism,” with its Thoreauvian connotations of fresh air and vigour, seems preferred among the true believers. Continued…Read full original article…

The Naturist Talks: Georgina from the UK
Naturism is a wonderful lifestyle that started in Europe but is now expanding towards the whole world. Most of the time we share our own views on the different aspects of nudism but once in a while we like to pass the mic to hear about how someone else’s experiences.

Our guest for today is Georgina from the UK, who will tell us everything about her naturist lifestyle and experiences.

Hello Georgina, tell us something about yourself
My name is Georgina and I’m 39 years old. I have two children, a boy and a girl. I’m a photographer of weddings and portraits. I live in Lincolnshire, UK.

How and at what age did you become a naturist?
I was 37 when I discovered naturism. A new relationship led me to research it because he was a naturist. I knew nothing at all about it and after he mentioned it and showed me pictures from events he had been to I got curious. I found a naturist spa meet an hour’s drive away and booked myself and my boyfriend on it. I didn’t tell him until I had booked us on it. He didn’t think I would be interested because of my body insecurities and I too didn’t know if I could go ahead and attend but I wanted to experience it and see what it was all about.

We attended along with around 20 other people. All ages and sizes. I was extremely nervous but within 5 minutes of being there and being naked I forgot about my insecurities and started to relax. I enjoyed the evening, we went in the sauna, the steam room, the Jacuzzi and sat talking to the other attendees while enjoying a drink and something to eat. I came away from that event feeling more at ease with myself than I ever had done before and I realised I wanted to attend more events. Since then we have attended nudestock organised by British Naturism, other spas and swims and beaches. We also went to waterworld, an annual event organised by British Naturism.

Is naturism allowed in your country and what’s the public opinion?
I live in the UK and I believe there are a few naturist beaches around and some naturist organisations. Everything we have attended though has been a private function within a private setting. I’m not really sure what the law is with regards to naturism. It’s not something I do on a daily basis. I am happy to attend organised events. Continued…Read full original article…

Grinning and baring it at the Nelson Sun Club
A Nelson naturist club has turned 50. Warren Gamble went to uncover truths and misconceptions.

As the sun sets over the Nelson Sun Club, we go for a stroll.

A tui flits across the fairway, a cooler breeze rustles through the gum trees. I’m not dressed for the drop in temperature.

As part of my mission to get the full naturist experience at the club – motto: Stay a while, we’ve got nothing on – it’s all or nothing. I choose nothing.

Camaraderie is a key benefit of the club, members say.
Camaraderie is a key benefit of the club, members say. Virginia Woolfe

Walking with me on the rolling fairways of the club’s pitch-and-putt nine-hole golf course are secretary Lorraine, wearing just a leopard-print head scarf and a gold chain necklace, vice-president Andrew, in a hat and sandals; committee member Geoff in a floppy hat and red t-shirt and president Russell, positively overdressed in an akubra-style hat and floral shirt.

Not a pair of pants in sight. I’m equipped with only a pen and notepad, which subconsciously moves south towards areas that have not seen the sun in a while. It takes an effort to keep writing.

It takes an effort not to chicken out of the whole thing. Fifty-plus years of conditioning that you wear clothes in the outdoors, especially in company, is a hard thing to shrug off. Continued…Read full original article…

Why millennials keep getting naked in public
Right now, hundreds of Aussie millennials are stripping off in public places and sharing pictures of their exploits — here’s why.

Backyard cricket is an Australian summer tradition going back generations — but this year, millennials have made one very crucial change: They’re doing it completely naked and documenting their exploits on Instagram.

On Australia Day, Get Naked Australia posted a photo of one such game, showing a guy — nude apart from his Akubra — being bowled LBW by a woman wearing nothing but an impressive tan line, as their naked mates fielded.

The photo went off like a prawn left out in the midday sun, accumulating several thousand likes and numerous comments, including one user, who posed a very valid question: “But why?”

Good question, mate! These young Aussies are a part of a growing millennial movement, who like to let it all hang loose with their friends at Australia’s prettiest beauty spots then post photos of themselves on to social media. Continued…Read full original article…

First time nudist: A complete guide

The big survey about naturism we’ve done a while a go showed us that the large majority, more than 60% of our participants, have started with nudism out of curiosity. A huge number. And it made us wonder… these people were curious and actually made the step to give social nudity a try. How many others are out there who haven’t taken the step yet?

From the messages we receive on Facebook, Instagram and this website it seems like there’s still some confusion about the how, where, when and with whom to start with nudism. Some “experienced” nudists will tell you that the first step is nothing. Just take off your clothes and that’s it. From our own first experience we know that it’s not always that easy. We have tackled this topic a couple of times before, but our knowledge is scattered among different blog posts. So we thought it was about time to put it all together in on big complete guide

Why are you interested in nudism?

It’s important to consider this question for a couple of minutes. We’re not going to give you a philosophical disquisition about what nudism and naturism is, but you can have many different reasons to start with this great lifestyle. Finding the perfect place for your first nudist experience depends a lot on the answer to this question.
There are only a few wrong answers. If you want to become a nudist because you think it’s easier to find a sex partner among nudists or because you think it’s fun to spend your free time looking at naked people, nudism is nothing for you. Other than that, pretty much all answers are good ones. Continued…Read full original article…

A Lighter Look At Life: Stripped bare… the naked truth about naturism
Yes, I peeled off for the convention – and spent the weekend shunning those individuals considerably bigger in the trouser department

Surprised, frankly, by the number of intellectuals at Saturday’s gathering of Young British Naturists (YBN). Doctors, solicitors, civil servants and IT specialists let it all hang out at the Midlands homage to “body confidence”.

They believe nudism is socialism in its purest form: only by shedding designer clothes and expensive bling can we be free from judging individuals by their chattels and accoutrements. In the buff, we’re all equal, claim naturists.

So why are there no nude photographs of Lenin?

Mike working hard to bring you the nudes, sorry, news

As a philosophy, it’s deeply flawed. Yes, I peeled off for the convention – and spent the weekend shunning those individuals considerably bigger in the trouser department.

Rip away the trappings of wealth and mankind simply finds other things to be envious about.

One teacher asked during the flesh-fest at Erdington’s Clover Spa: “Have you read Marx?”

“Yes,” I admitted. “I think it’s the wicker furniture.” Continued…Read full original article…

The Nude Effect.

So you have decided to give nudism/naturism a try, good for you. Unlike those people who win the lottery and claim it wont change them, most naturists won’t make that same claim. In a textile dominated world, those of us who see clothes as an option rather than a requirement are going to do things a little differently once we escape from our fabric prisons. Your life will change, mostly for the better, and as a result you are going to make some changes too. We spent most of the holiday season with family, and that meant sadly wearing clothes. It did however get Tara and I talking about how we have changed and what changes we have made or intend to make. I made some notes and decided to share with all you wonderful people because it is winter, I live in Canada, and blog worthy naturist experiences will be a bit fewer and farther between for the next few months.

Change comes in many varieties, some are simple enough, others are more complicated. The first thing you will do is change your main living space to make it naturist friendly. I have discussed this from a few different angles in previous blog posts, how to survive a Canadian winter is a perfect example. When I moved in with Tara last year, she was more of a part time naturist and only made a few minor adjustments prior to my moving in. Now that this is my home as well, some agreed to make some additional upgrades. We are lucky her backyard is very private, just some new evergreen shrubs and cedars needed planting in one corner to fill a void created when the trees and bushes go bare in the fall through to spring. Having a dual income to work with also allowed us to splurge and get a hot tub installed. For naturists and textiles alike I would highly recommend this expense, we use it almost daily no matter the weather. Even a basic model is not exactly cheap however, and we wanted something more midrange. Add to that the cost of installation, leveling ground, a new electrical hookup, and so on, this was a huge expense that we did not make on a whim. The reward however, you cannot put a price on it. We still enjoy the occasional visit to our nearby Naturist resort that has an indoor pool and sauna, but it is hard to do better than the convenience of a hot tub steps from your back door. We have ours placed so that it is fully private but open enough we can be outdoors year round enjoying the hot water and no silly swimsuits. I understand this is a luxury beyond the reach for many, it was for us before we became a couple and pooled (pun intended) our resources. If you can manage it I highly recommend the investment. The only other major change to the house was at the front door, There are two accent windows that gave almost full view into part of the home, and a large glass insert in the door that also had some very transparent sections. Some DIY frosting for the accents was cheap and easy enough, the insert was a bit more expensive but totally worth it. That last upgrade actually came via a readers suggestion after my recent embarrassing encounter at our front door, a “smart” doorbell with camera to avoid any further surprises. We got a good deal in the boxing day sales but I have yet to find time to install it. Continued…Read full original article…

Eating Nude: Why Naked Restaurants Are Not Good Business…Yet

For a while it seemed that naked dining was going to be the next big food thing in cosmopolitan cities of the world. The opening with great fanfare of several nudist restaurants that attracted global media attention seemed to be the harbinger of a new taste for ‘food in the nude.’

One-time events at clubs, bars, cruises and private celebrations linking eating and drinking with nakedness have popped up over the years, drawing their share of media coverage. But when twin brothers Stéphane and Mike Saada inaugurated the O’naturel restaurant in Paris in November, 2017, they seemed to have tapped an opportunity in the naturism market.

“We’re in the heart of Paris and we’re eating naked,” Yves Leclerc, president of the French Naturist Federation, told The Local at the time. “It’s a little surreal. It’s like when we’re on holiday, but even better.” He lamented that “at home, I have to put my clothes on to go to a restaurant.” Continued…Read full original article…

Inside Bristol’s first ever naked dining event
The last chunk of bread sits abandoned in the middle of the table – we may be naked but good old British dining etiquette still applies.

It’s not often I find myself completely starkers by the arches on a Tuesday evening, but surrounded by people all similarly unclothed with the tantalising scent of wood-fired pizza wafting in the air, it’s starting to feel like there could be far worse places to be.

Wind back about 15 minutes and the situation was a whole lot more uncomfortable.

Tentatively, I crept inside Flour & Ash for Bristol’s inaugural Dine Naked event to be met by a room filled predominantly with men, sipping from champagne flutes and making polite small talk.

Only the polythene bags ready for clothes to be deposited in set the scene apart from any normal post-work do.

Fighting a strong urge to turn and flee, I did what any self-respecting English woman would do and made a beeline for the bar. Complimentary glass of bubbly in hand, I scan the room for a friendly face and soon strike up a conversation with a nearby man.

He has travelled over from South Wales specially for the occasion and is something of a seasoned naturist as talk soon turns to traffic. Continued…Read full original article…

Of nudists and bad spelling: Anthony Westbury recalls some of his favorite columns
After nearly three decades of prowling the newsroom and St. Lucie County streets, columnist Anthony Westbury is hanging up his notebook and retiring his ballpoint pen on Jan. 2. As he counts down the days, we’re sharing excerpts from some of his favorite columns.

Comfortable in their skin

My assignment Saturday was simple: Go to the beach and count naked people.

What could go wrong?

Well, as my colleague, Outdoors columnist Ed Killer, noted wryly, I was going to count nudists frolicking in the surf on the final day of “Shark Week” while in the shadow of a nuclear power plant.

Yep, only in Florida. Perfectly normal.

I decided to adopt a strict “only look ’em in the eyes” strategy when reporting this delicate assignment

“Everybody here is really open. Nobody cares that you don’t have clothes on. And it’s not a pick-up scene,” said Kelly Spirito, of West Palm Beach, (center) who relaxes with friends July 11, 2015, at Blind Creek Beach, a clothing-optional beach, in Fort Pierce. Many people came out to celebrate National Nude Recreation Week with a group skinny dip.

It worked — most of the time. Continued…Read full original article…

Les naturistes veulent assurer la promotion de leur art de vivre
Grand-Parc. La Fédération française de naturisme s’est mise à nu dimanche à la plage de la Mama pour promouvoir un art de vivre familial et convivial.

Le comité d’accueil n’a pas la langue dans sa poche à notre arrivée. Nous, les textiles, sommes très gentiment prévenus. Rien n’agace plus les adeptes du naturisme, que de lire ou d’entendre les sempiternelles réflexions graveleuses à propos de cet « art de vivre » pratiqué par certains depuis des décennies.

« Chez nous, c’est le respect qui prône, respect de soi, d’autrui et de l’environnement », expliquent côte à côte, devant le stand dressé sur la plage de la Mama, Jean-Louis Ucla, le président de la Fédération Rhône-Alpes de naturisme et Pierre Brocard, le président du club du Soleil du nord Isère. ».

Les organisateurs de cette journée avaient monté un stand sur la plage la Mama, un lieu réservé à la pratique du naturisme, au Grand-Parc.
Les organisateurs de cette journée avaient monté un stand sur la plage la Mama, un lieu réservé à la pratique du naturisme, au Grand-Parc. Jean-Pierre Balfin

Cette première Journée sans maillot sert aussi à cela. Faire tomber les préjugés contre cette manière d’être, choisie par 35 000 membres en France. Des personnes qui estiment que la vie est plus belle quand on choisit de la mener le plus souvent possible, dans son plus simple appareil. À la plage, dans les associations et les clubs de vacances. Mais aussi chez soi. Mais les a priori ont la peau dure et le défi est de taille pour la fédération. D’après un récent sondage Ipsos, 83 % des personnes interrogées ne seraient pas tentées par le naturisme. Même si, comme le confie Jean-Louis Ucla, « il y a une plus grande tolérance de l’opinion publique aujourd’hui. Et puis l’image du gendarme de Saint-Tropez traquant le naturiste n’est plus vraiment d’actualité. Il y a encore des résistances mais beaucoup nous ouvrent leurs portes, comme l’a fait le parc de Miribel avec cette plage officielle ». Selon ce jovial responsable, à l’aise, deux tiers des gens qui rejoignent cette famille pas comme les autres, ont découvert le naturisme par hasard. Justement sur une plage. Et à entendre les adeptes purs et durs, l’essayer c’est y prendre très vite goût. Hier, les sans maillot, nombreux, étaient surtout entre-eux. « C’est difficile de faire venir les gens vers nous sur une plage qui nous est réservée. Mais c’est important d’être là pour faire de la promo ». Sur le sable et dans l’eau, toutes les générations cohabitent. Beaucoup de serviettes de bain, et de rares parasols. Malgré un soleil de plomb.

Le « Tout nu et tout bronzé », vanté sur les ondes par le chanteur Carlos dans les années 70, ne semble pas avoir pris une ride dans ce lieu. Ici, on fait la nique aux coups de soleil mal placés et aux mises en garde des dermatos. Continued…Read full original article…

Going swimming with naturist group at Wigton Baths
I have never looked into people’s eyes as much as this. They are talking. I am staring straight ahead. Don’t look down – look into their eyes…

This was the scene at Wigton Baths last Saturday afternoon during a swimming session promoted by British Naturism.

I had asked if I could attend, to gain some insight into the naturist world. Of course you can, they said. But it would be better if you joined in.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Wigton, get your kit off.

The news that I was writing about naturism attracted more interest from my colleagues than anything I’ve ever done.

“Will you join in? Are you nervous? Will you feel embarrassed?”

How sad that the simple act of not wearing clothes should be greeted with such fascination.

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…

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…

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 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 turned his life around after facing financial ruin.

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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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 Mountain
From Halfway Mountain Giulia Mangione

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…

The Naturist Talks: Bart from Belgium

One of the main reasons why we started this project is to show the world that naturists are not some strange dark commune but that actually everyone could be one… Or could enjoy being one if they took the first step.

Our main example of “everyone” is of course ourselves, we write posts about naturism in general but also about our own experiences. But some of you might be thinking “Yes sure, those two are probably just the strange kids in the block…” (nah, we know you’re not thinking that about us, but we’re trying to write an introduction here). So we decided to let other naturists have a word as well.

So please sit back and get inspired! Continued…Read full original article…

Never let an opportunity to be Naked pass you by.
My husband and I have lived in the village of Tantallon for nearly 18 years and every day when we go out for errands we drive over a bridge that has a creek which flows into the bay.

Tantallon, for those who don’t know, is on the east coast of Nova Scotia approximately 40 miles from Halifax on the highway and Peggy’s Cove on the coastal route.

It was a unseasonably warm day (16 Celsius) or (60 Fahrenheit) and we had some heavy rain over the weekend and the usually tranquil creek became a torrential river.

I knew that this might have been the last time before winter to have some pictures taken so John and I drove up the road along the river and what a sight it was.

The crashing water over the rocks was beautiful and at once peaceful listening to the rushing water. The path along the shoreline with the multi-colored leaves was slippery but manageable. Continued…Read full original article…

The Art of Male Bonding
Back in March I joined a social platform called MeWe and I am part of various groups regarding naturism, skinny-dipping and male bonding. I found this social platform a great way to be myself and open up with others, whether in the chat rooms or a main page.

I have often thought of male bonding and how it related to me. I wrote about a passage of my childhood in my last blog but did not delve into a part of my life and that many men have gotten to experience; having a father to look up to.

I was born last of eleven children (5 boys and 5 girls) and raised in the catholic faith. My eldest sister married 10 months before I was born. My father and my future brother-in-law made a pact on who would have a child first. I arrived 10 months later and my niece five years later.

My father had an untimely passing when he was killed in a vehicle accident while on his way to work. My eldest brother was with him and badly injured thankfully, he survived. I was two at the time and this left my mother to care for us all by herself.

My oldest siblings had to find work to help make ends meet. Even though I had five brothers to look up to, they were much older and had other interests than to look after me. My sisters and I have always had a stronger bond. They were in essence all my mothers. Continued…Read full original article…

1ª Ruta Senderista nudista de AAPNC

Este domingo 21 de Octubre de 2018, y a pesar de una meteorología adversa durante toda la semana, tuvimos un día espléndido en el que realizamos nuestra “I Ruta Senderista nudista de AAPNC”, recorriendo el camino que bordea los acantilados desde la playa nudista de Cantarriján en Granada hasta El Cañuelo ya en Málaga.

Comenzamos la jornada a las 9:30 reunidos en el aparcamiento, donde dudábamos si desnudarnos o no dado el fresquito que hacía aún a esa hora de la mañana. Nos duró poco la duda, pues “a la de tres”, nos quitamos la ropa y comenzamos a caminar.

Iniciamos la ruta subiendo por el arroyo de Cantarriján, que estaba practicable a pesar de las últimas lluvias y poco más adelante seguimos el camino que sube hacia el Cerro del Sol. Continued…Read full original article…

Why I love nudist hiking?
As a true naturist there is nothing I enjoy more then being in nature…without clothes. As I said so many times before, for me there is something very special in the feeling of freedom that is given to you when you are truly becoming one with the nature, without chains of clothes. And nudist hiking is one of the purest feelings of being alive.

Every part of nature is important to me. If I had to choose between the sea, rivers, lakes, mountains, forests I could not choose my favourite. To me, there is something special and unique in every single of them. But at the same time all of them have one thing in common – providing that special feeling of freedom and perhaps more important – feeling of being alive.

There is a peace of my heart that is reserved only for mountains. And nudist hiking. I love hiking in the spring/summer/autumn when the weather is good and it is “easy” to go to the top of the mountain. But I also love to hike in the winter when the snow is reaching over my knees and I really have to invest a lot of effort to make my way trought the snow to the top. And it is worth of it every single time. Continued…Read full original article…

LETTER: Back in the day in Vineland

Having lived in Vineland all my life, I would like to take a walk down memory lane and relate the many experiences, places and people who I knew as a young man in this great city.

Remember, back in the day, there were no electronic devices such as we have today, so we had to communicate by talking to one another, face to face.

A view of 600 block of Landis Avenue as it looked in 1958.

Some of the things we would do as young kids would play box ball in the street, football on the vacant lot on West and Wood streets, and other kids’ games to keep us out of trouble.

Come 4 o’clock, the New System Laundry whistle would blow and we would all scatter for home.

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…

From here to eternity
Europeans are pretty blasé when it comes to nudity.

Although we hate to admit it, modern Indian culture is for the most part, sexually immature. Nudity is closely associated with shame and skeptics are referred to Dr David Dhawan (full time movie director and part time psychologist) who will set them straight on izzat and nanga panga. Why just last week in Goa, we were treated to the spectacle of five gents from Tirunelveli ogling two hapless aunties chastely clad in saris who were disporting themselves in the hotel swimming pool. The situation was rendered even more piquant by the fact that the hotel staff were remonstrating with the ladies that they were inappropriately dressed; the watchmen (pun intended) were having none of it. “They are enjoying, I say, why you are giving trouble, aaanh? Po da.”

Chanda Kocchar

Reading Manoj Das’s short story, “The Naked”, which deals with the travails of, Nathu, an old family retainer requisitioned by the erstwhile Maharani to provide hospitality to a group of visiting European nudists at her crumbling ancestral home, brought back memories of a visit to the Costa Brava many moons ago.

Europeans are pretty blasé when it comes to nudity. Swedes majestically divest themselves of all clothing including bathrobe en route to a sauna, Germans believe a coat of sun-tan lotion is all the protection they need from the elements while the French make Adam and Eve (Saint Laurent) look over-dressed. Indians, on the other hand, tend to giggle helplessly when it comes to revealing what my friend Raymond referred to as “wedding tackle” or when sufficiently spiritually inspired as “yer family jewels, men.” Grizzled grandfathers go through paroxysms of embarrassment in changing rooms performing the shimmy shimmy shake with a towel draped around their nether regions.

Places to Get Naked: Tyagarah Beach

Last week a group of GNA beach goers were lucky enough to visit Tyagarah Beach in the Byron Shire. Tyagarah Beach is located at the end of Greys Lane and is a beautiful, vast stretch of coastline in which people can freely sunbake and swim as nature intended. There is a designated “nude bathing area” as the aggressively informative sign indicates.

We swam, sunbaked and of course grabbed a cheeky photo for the gram and had a great experience here. It was a nice change from the condensed Sydney Beaches to experience the openness of the beach as well as swim in the surf and catch some waves. Overall it was a great day and we are all eager to return! Continued…Read full original article…
