Bride in the buff! Couple with 30-year age gap who tied the knot in the nude surrounded by 40 naked wedding guests say it was a ‘magical’ experience

A couple with a 30-year age gap, who tied the knot in the nude surrounded by their naked wedding guests, are preparing to celebrate their one-year anniversary. 

Vehicle restorer Nigel Seymour, 59, and care assistant Rachel, 30, from Poole, Dorset, met playing table tennis ‘au naturel’ on a Greek island holiday in June 2017.

The pair, who are both members of British Naturism – a society for people who enjoy nudity – got engaged six months later when Nigel proposed in front of 400 naked strangers on a weekend away in Staffordshire.

I have a dream!

I am happy to join with you today in what may go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of man.

Five score years ago, (and fifty years more), a great man, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Nudists who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Nudist still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Nudist is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Nudist lives on a lonely island of shameful nudity in the midst of a vast ocean of textile domination. One hundred years later, the Nudist is still languished in the corners of modern society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

A Naked Honeymoon: One Couple’s Truly Memorable Nude Trip

If we could do it all over again, my wife and I would have gone on a clothing optional honeymoon. To be honest, when we went on our honeymoon to Tahiti we were just beginning our nude journey, and what a trip it has been. From nude beaches and skinnydipping to nude B&Bs and nudist clubs to hot springs deep in the wood and nudist resorts.

Our nude trips have been a great experience for us. We’ve been to many wonderful places and have made many good friends along the way. Including a couple who lives near to us that we’ve vacationed with to Saint Martin and gone nude boating on the Great Lakes.

‘We’re not just a bunch of weird naked people’: the rise of naturism in lockdown

Online events such a naked yoga, pub sessions and a naked coffee morning have had more sign-ups than usual

For Dan and Charlotte Carlson, being naked feels as right as sitting in an old armchair or having their favourite comfort food. The married couple have been naturists for years, and while in lockdown with their daughters, aged 27 and 29, nudity is the norm for the whole family.

“I will take nearly any opportunity to be naked at home,” says Mr Carlson. “Near the fireplace, on the patio as the weather gets warm, and while working at my desk.”

It’s Summer. It’s Time to Get Naked! Ten answers to your naked questions.

It’s summer! The sun is shining and the temperatures are finally heating up. For most of us, our thoughts turn to weekend cookouts, baseball games, swimming pools and fire pits.

It’s also a great time to go outside and get naked. Most nudist camps, clubs and resorts allow guests to try their facilities from Memorial Day to Labor Day. While it may sound a little intimidating at first, a nudist camp is a great way to learn more about nude recreation and can be a great experience for you and your spouse.

My wife and I are not nudist. We don’t sit around the house naked or garden in the buff. It doesn’t fit with our lifestyle, however when we can get some time away from our family, jobs, and other commitments, we’ve found a day (or afternoon) sitting in the sun wearing nothing at all can be a wonderfully relaxing time.

Opinion: Rab McNeil: Bottom line – no nudes is good nudes

A dressing-down for undressing

I WILL be quite candid with you here and confess that I have no inclination to take off all my claes and waddle aboot with a whole load of other folk similarly starkers.

In public at all times, I never let my dangleberries dangle. Nor yet do I yearn to feel a stiff breeze around my Cairngorms. But it seems there are those with no such qualms, folk who traipse hither and also yon, letting it all hang out.

With their brains boiling in the recent hot weather, normally upright ratepayers have apparently taken to stoating aboot their gardens in the scud, and have now acquired a taste for the peculiar practice.

Vitamin D appears to play role in COVID-19 mortality rates

After studying global data from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, researchers have discovered a strong correlation between severe vitamin D deficiency and mortality rates.

The researchers noted that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the UK, had lower levels of vitamin D compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected.

“While I think it is important for people to know that vitamin D deficiency might play a role in mortality, we don’t need to push vitamin D on everybody,” said Northwestern’s Vadim Backman, who led the research. “This needs further study, and I hope our work will stimulate interest in this area. The data also may illuminate the mechanism of mortality, which, if proven, could lead to new therapeutic targets.”

The Only Place to Escape Body Shaming: A Nude Beach

The only place I know of to escape body shaming is a nude beach, resort or campground. Sounds crazy doesn’t it? The only place to escape the unrealistic and material ideas of the perfect body is a place where your total body is on display. Let me explain.

My wife and I have been going on nude vacations for more than 20 years. We started on our honeymoon to Bora Bora. While there aren’t any recognized nude beaches in French Polynesia, topless sunbathing and swimming is the norm. My wife was in her mid-20s and thoroughly enjoyed swimming, sunning and walking the beach without her bikini top on. I certainly didn’t mind either. To me, she is beautiful and even more so when she isn’t wearing anything to cover up.

Debunking the misconceptions about naturism

The folks in that picture look pretty comfortable wearing nothing at all, don’t they? They’re self-confident enough to pose for the camera without any embarrassment. How could they manage that? Perhaps two main reasons are that they like being naked and they’ve come to realize that nudity isn’t anything to be embarrassed about.

But there has to be at least one other factor. They don’t worry about how anyone else in society will judge them for not wearing clothes. Why? Because they understand that all the reasons naturist nudity is so controversial and considered very “abnormal” in our society are simply without merit, at least as applied to themselves. These meritless “reasons” are based on a variety of misconceptions. Anyone else who wants to enjoy naturism without shame or embarrassment should learn how to debunk the misconceptions they’re likely to hear.

‘The View:’ Joy Behar Describes Meeting Her Husband For the First Time at a ‘Semi-Nudist Colony’

Joy Behar of The View is known for her brash humor and tell-it-like-it-is demeanor. The longtime co-host often tells stories of her husband, Steve Janowitz, whom she began dating in 1982 and married in 2011.

Never one to shy away from juicy details, Behar recently revealed the very unique place she first laid eyes on Janowitz – where she saw plenty of him.

Though the two waited 29 years to finally tie the knot, Behar and Janowitz are clearly committed to each other. Behar has one daughter, Eve, from her previous marriage to Joe Behar, but no kids with Janowitz, a retired schoolteacher. The View co-host has previously commented on the long wait to walk down the aisle.

Feeling down? Take off all your clothes: Being naked makes us happier and more satisfied with our bodies

But it seems the opposite is true.

Taken part in nudist activities makes people much more satisfied with their bodies, and even their lives, new research suggests.

A group of researchers from Goldsmiths, University of London looked into the links between naturist activities and how satisfied the participants’ felt with their bodies and their lives in general.

Why Nudism?

I am proud to say that I am a nudist, and that I live my life sans apparel whenever possible. Since I was twelve years old, I have loved being naked, and I have known that clothing is unnecessary, a matter of habit and little more. But what does it mean to be a nudist or a naturist? Is it all about sex? Gawking at privates? Shocking strangers with your dangly bits? Quite the opposite, actually. We become obsessed with genitalia, and sex, the more we keep these parts a mystery. For a nudist like me, a naked person is just a person, not a thing to be lusted after. If I had to sum up our beliefs in five simple words, those words would be: the human body is innocent. That’s it. We believe that men and women have the capacity to respect one another, with or without clothing, without succumbing to animal instinct.

A day in the life at Rhode Island’s nudist camp

The most intimidating part of social nudity is the parking lot. You see more, from the panorama of your windshield, than you could ever absorb in polite company. Eye contact, after all, is an important social skill.

You park alongside a smattering of sedans, pick-ups and a shiny black Caddy and you’re presented with two options: Get out of the car or leave in a hurry, spraying the naturalists in pebbles and dust.

I wonder for a moment if I should wear my prescription sunglasses. I pop them off, then put them back on, open the door and walk over to a cloister of bodies by a cabin with a retro RC cola machine in front. There are thin bodies and robust bodies; hairy bodies and artfully shaved ones.

Discrimination of Men in Nudism

Nudist are a community of people much like an artist, engineer, religious follower, hacker, or Comic-Con attendee, and we may not understand what those communities do or why, but we respect they exist. Unlike nudist, when you do a search of these topics or communities, you are able to find an insurmountable amount of information about them, what they are about, beliefs or code, and how you can join one of these communities. So what happens when you type in a nudist term into your search engine?
