Fat? Why your body is not a problem to be fixed

Pretty much the first thing that fat studies scholar Dr Cat Pausé asks when I contact her to see if she'd like to contribute to our story on fat is, "Are you going to use any photos of headless fatties?" If we are, she's not interested. Awkwardly, we were going to, actually. For the cover, we had planned to use a photo of a headless fat person with the headline, "What's wrong with this picture?" and then earnestly point out how frequently the media uses images of headless fat people and how problematic they are.

Even though it was meant to be sympathetic, meant to open discussion on the problems of being fat in a society obsessed with the thin, Pausé, a Massey University senior lecturer, said no. It's still a headless fatty. Even if you're trying to be clever with it. No interview. "Why not use a photo of happy, smiling, laughing fat people with the same headline?" she said. "When do you ever see that?" She has a point. Because we all know the photos she's talking about. They're the ones usually accompanying the headline "Obesity Crisis". We see those pictures on the news, in the papers all the time: fat people's bottoms walking along a street, fat people in the mall, and the Holy Grail: fat people eating and drinking. (Because, how dare they?) The photos are snapped sneakily, to avoid the need for permission, and to avoid embarrassment. (Because they should be embarrassed, right?)

Return of the naturist: Why liking your body shouldn’t be a crime
Danish artist has been battling Copenhagen’s authorities in order to show her larger-than-life naked depictions

Getting her work displayed in central Copenhagen has been no easy feat for Mathilde Grafström. For years, she has been fighting censorship and criticism from the public and the police. Grafström is persistent in her mission to improve body acceptance and promote education regarding the female body.

Too prude to go nude?

Her March exhibition ‘Female Beauty – Celebration of the Feminine’, which will be on show in Nytorv square until March 31, is a larger-than-life, eye-catching display of completely nude female models posing in natural surroundings. “Danish people have an image of being very free and very relaxed, and it might be that we are compared to other countries,” she explained to CPH Post. “But in general, loving and showing the body [here] is very looked down on these days; you are being judged a lot if you enjoy or like your body. This is a negative trend amongst young girls.”

Bare With Me: An Introduction to Naturism

Someone walks past you on the street. She’s wearing a shirt of an unpopular band, jeans that went out of style ten years ago and shoes you know she bought from Walmart. A businessman rushes past you and bumps right into her – he spills his Starbucks latte on his Armani suit. It clearly wasn’t her fault but she kindly apologizes and offers to buy him a new drink. He takes one look at her and immediately dismisses her, rolling his eyes at her ill-fitting, tacky band shirt, and continues on his way.

Clothing serves several purposes. It protects us from the elements, gives us opportunity to express ourselves and feel comfortable, and helps structure and identify individuals and groups in schools and workplaces. But it also makes it very easy to judge people. It’s so easy that most of us don’t even think about it. The girl in the band shirt clearly wasn’t worth the rich businessman’s time. A college student in a Hollister polo shirt and khakis won’t feel the same kinship with his hipster barista than with someone who dresses similar. We form opinions on people based on what they’re wearing and internally place them in social classes. Clothing becomes a layer of judgement we place over others. But what happens when we remove those layers?

Good Naked Morning: Swimming in the Buff and the Good Ol’ Days

Hey friends, good naked morning on this lovely Sunday. Yeah, normally I blog on a Saturday morning, but I was workin’ all day yesterday—almost passed out. For the beginning of fall, these past few days have felt like how July and August should have felt if only we didn’t have such a cold summer. We hadn’t really had a 90-degree day up here in my area of Northern Michigan until really this weekend, THE FIRST WEEKEND OF FALL! I was down filming a local festival, and yesterday I was filming their queens’ pageant which was a good 2 hours out in the scorching sun and I’m in my sweaty polo—my bottle of water I’d been drinking all morning gone, both of my cameras’ batteries were on the verge of dying…and so was I. The pageant started at 10, and didn’t get over ‘til about 12:30, and I felt so sorry for those girls who had to brave the heat changing behind the tarp curtain in the small bandshell. Luckily when it was all over, the concessions were nearby and I got some pizza for lunch and best of all…an ice cold bottle of water! I started feeling a lot better afterwards.

Right on the edge of the park there in Atlanta is the Thunder Bay River, and I was so tempted to jump in for a swim—especially after I got a notification from one of my [textile] friends from a Christian ministry I belong to, he was working all day but took a break to take a cool swim in the river. I was practically green with envy…I so wanted to do the same, but I couldn’t because I was still on the job! Plus I didn’t have my suit…wish I could’ve just swam nude, but knowing the surroundings and how professional I had to be, I JUST COULDN’T!

Nudist colony bares its way into the Commons

A nudist colony was officially unveiled Friday in Commons 569. The colony, named Studiously Streaking, was founded with the intent of providing students with a safe space for optional clothing.

At the revealing, nudists from the community came out to show support for Capital’s first on-campus nudist organization along with representatives from the local chapter of the American Association for Nudist Exploration. “We are very excited to see the next generation of nudists showing some skin and taking some risks,” Bertha DeSoot, the Columbus chapter president of the AANE, said. “We’re hoping that the actions taken here today by Nick Edd and his group will help inspire students at other schools like Ohio State and Otterbein and help them realize there’s nothing wrong with stripping down to the basics.” The colony, which is accepting of any and all students, will remain in its designated Commons throughout the school year.

We did not invent clothes simply to stay warm
Clothes are not a necessity for everyone, so why do we bother wearing clothes at all?

Stephen Gough likes to be naked; so much so, it has cost him his freedom. He has spent a combined total of 10 years in prison for showing too much skin in public, having been arrested multiple times.

At some point early humans needed to cover up

Gough, also known as the "naked rambler", prefers to get naked when temperatures warm up. He is not a danger to the public, but when he walked naked from John o'Groats to Lands' End in the UK in 2003, he caused outcries around the country. When he attempted the journey again he was quickly arrested. In prison he was often put into solitary confinement for his refusal to wear clothes.

Nudism = Happiness

Are nudists and naturists happier than the rest of the world? Are they more connected with Nature and does that deep connection gives them different (even better) understanding of themselves? I am thinking about it for some time now. Since the beginning of my naked journey, my life has changed to better without any doubt. But the questions are why and how naturism/nudism changed my life?

The most obvious thing that changed in my life is that I started to spend any time that I can, being naked. And the more time I was spending naked the more I was paying attention to my body. I started to treat my body as my temple, as my home. I started to appreciate my own body. It was not, and it is not a perfect body, but it is the only I have and I can’t get a new one. If I want it to be healthier, if I want it to look better I have to work on it, take care of it. Before my nudist journey, I was taking my body for granted. Wasn’t eating good, wasn’t working out at all… All I have done for my body was to wash it and use body lotion twice a year (if I even had remembered).

That Time I Did Stand Up Comedy… Naked

You know when you’re nervous about public speaking and your friends advise you to “imagine the audience in their underwear?” Well, that’s exactly what I did when I performed stand-up recently at one of the most fear-inducing shows I’ve ever done … except in this scenario there was no “imagining” and there was no “underwear.” My audience was full on real and full on nude.

Yup. They were completely, totally, utterly butt naked. The dress code was semi-formal “birthday suits” and the guest list included penises, boobs, and vaginas galore. I told jokes for twenty minutes to a bunch of bare booties, although I was less focused on their bare booties and more focused on my own. See, I was equally garmentless. Yup. I was completely, totally, utterly, bare-butt naked. At this point you’re probably wondering HOW? WHY? HUH? WHAT? WHY? WHY? WHY? Excellent questions and ones I’ve been asked by multiple people, including my mother, but her inquiries were more along the lines of “Oh my god, Jess, why?? Do you need to borrow some money?” and “Please, how much money do you need to borrow?” I explained to her that I didn’t disrobe out of a desperate need for quick cash. I said yes to the gig because I wanted to do it, because it was a unique opportunity, and because it was an experience I knew I wasn’t going to forget anytime soon.

Woman wants Tofino to get a nude beach
“They may enjoy a surf and then walk around naked and just be free.” A Tofino resident is laying bare her desire to see the community adopt a nude beach.

“We’ve become a major tourist destination and a nude beach is inclusive and allows people to be free while they’re on vacation and it allows people who are local to feel that they can gear down comfortably without such a moral compass on their bodies,” Rachel Sutton told the Westerly News.

Rachel Sutton looks out over Cox Bay on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. The Tofino resident and vacation rental operator is raising the idea of bringing a nude beach to the community.

“The ethos of Tofino and Ucluelet and the West Coast is fairly irreverent and we are a population who value uniqueness and doing things in a creative and spontaneous manner…They may enjoy a surf and then walk around naked and just be free.” People of all genders are permitted to be topless in B.C., but full nudity is illegal on public lands. However, the province does offer an assortment of nude beaches. NaturistDirectory.com, a website that promotes destinations to travellers looking for clothing-optional opportunities, lists Vancouver’s Wreck Beach, Nelson’s Red Sands Beach, Hornby Island’s Little Tribune Bay and Crescent Rock’s Naturalist Beach as its top four B.C. beaches.

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.

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

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. 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.

The day Monifieth was a goose pimple away from a bare-all beach
It was the day Angus came a goose pimple away from joining the likes of St Tropez as a nudist hotspot.

The county’s chilly conditions might not make it the obvious option for unclothed capers, but Monifieth was once in the running to become the first place in Britain to open a bare-all beach. Dundee District Council received a request from the Central Council for British Naturism 40 years ago and identified an area of beach at the east end of Monifieth, next to the army camp, caravan site and golf courses.

The notion was not exactly welcomed with open arms. Monifieth West councillor Dorothy Pattullo said at the time that she wanted to give the idea the cold shoulder and described nude bathing as “socially unacceptable in this country”. She said: “I imagine the sight of people running about naked would not be very good for golfers’ handicaps.” And while she noted the potential to bring in additional tourists she warned the downsides of the idea were no laughing matter. “Monifieth has a great many elderly people who would be rightly disturbed by nude bathing at the beach,” she declared. “If the naturists want to take off their clothes it is all right with me – but not in public and certainly not in Monifieth.”

Spanish holiday islands including Ibiza and Mallorca vote in favour of protecting tradition of nude beaches
A motion to protect nudism throughout the Balearic Islands was brought to the regional parliament and was unanimously approved on Thursday

Holidaymakers jetting off to Ibiza and Mallorca can let it all hang out this summer with the popular holiday isles taking measures to protect and promote their “naturist tradition”. A motion to protect nudism throughout the Balearic Islands was brought to the regional parliament by left-wing party Podemos and was unanimously approved on Thursday by the parliament’s Commission for Social Affairs and Human Rights.

It called on regional president, Francina Armengol, to respect nudism. “The parliament of the Balearic Islands urges the government to recognise the naturist tradition of the Balearic Islands and its practice in freedom, tolerance and respect for people and the environment,” the motion read. The parliament will also urge the government to properly signpost beaches where stripping off is allowed. “It is a way of living in harmony with nature, characterised by the practice of being naked together,” it said.

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.

How to stay cheerful in the torrent of miserable news

I have been searching the newspapers over the past week for encouraging news, but I have not been all that successful. The news seems to have been uniformly bleak. Neighbour has been turned against neighbour, friend against friend. There is no peace in the land.

GEORGES GOBET/AFP/Getty Images

The times in which we live are undoubtedly distressing, but so, I suspect, have been the times in which everyone has lived. And that leads to an interesting philosophical problem: how are we to react to the tensions, and setbacks that assail us every time we open a newspaper or listen to a news broadcast? This is where the nocebo effect comes in. We all know about the placebo effect, which may make you feel better because you think that what you are doing is going to have a positive effect. The nocebo effect is the opposite of that – it is the negative effect that people feel when they think that things are bad, and are going to get worse. In extreme cases, it can kill you. If you think you are going downhill, you will.

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".

Nude swimming sessions are still going strong in Chester after 43 years
The sessions at Northgate Arena have been held since 1976

Each Saturday evening, around 50 people meet for a swim at Chester's Northgate Arena. It's a group made up of members of various ages, and it's a great chance for all of them to socialise, keep fit and have a good catch up. Nothing unusual about that, you might think. But actually, there's just one thing that's different about these swimming sessions as opposed to regular ones. All the swimmers are completely naked
Nude swimming sessions are held at Northgate Arena by Wirral Naturist Club

They're members of the Wirral Naturist Club, which has been holding regular sessions at the Northgate Arena almost every week since 1976. Member Rod Burkey explained more about the club, which was founded on the principles of 'family naturism' and consists mainly of couples and families with some singles making up the membership. "We have members of all ages, backgrounds shapes and sizes," he said. "We're a friendly group, who enjoy socialising and keeping fit – although you may very well find that there is more talking than exercising! "Our swims are open to all ages and we are happy to attract and welcome anyone who wants to give naturism a try. Prospective members have to fill out a form and attend three swim sessions before being able to become members which gives all involved a fair chance to find out if they wish to continue," explains Rod. And if you haven't tried Naturism before, Rod insists there is no need to be embarrassed - it is 'a most pleasurable experience'. Continued…Read full original article…

Strip tease: Nudists protest apartment block to be built behind their Costa Blanca hideaway
NUDISTS are angry about an apartment block that has sprung up behind their strip of Costa Blanca beach, claiming it will subject them to voyeurs and peeping Toms.

The women’s group Aquarela, who organised a naked protest bathe last week, say they used to enjoy the seclusion offered by tamarisks and pine trees on the L’Almadrava beach in Denia to go about their hobby in peace. But now a concrete block of five floors with 68 apartments has stripped the nudists of privacy, and will bring unwarranted ‘stares’, ‘aggression’ and ‘judgements’.

“I arrived here 15 years ago. This beach has remained virgin until now and it was a joy to enjoy its tranquility,” an Aquarela member told Levante. “We have bathed naked without problems — but now we have to defend what we have done with naturalness and freedom.” The nudists say L’Almadrava has long been neglected due to its thick sand and posidonia seagrass. But it was precisely this undesirability that has kept the ‘last virgin beach’ in the comarca of Alta Marina quiet, secluded and untouched. Continued…Read full original article…

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…

An RNLI lifeboat crew was also scrambled to join other rescuers in case anyone else had been in the vehicle.

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…

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 couldn’t believe it. I am baffled – mentally scarred,” said the mother who took the photograph.

“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…

Happy St Pirans Day to all our followers and naturist communities in Cornwall.

St Piran Day Perranporth
St Piran Day (Perranporth) ©

Saint Piran or Pyran (Cornish: Peran, Latin: Piranus), died c. 480, was a 5th-century Cornish abbot and saint, supposedly of Irish origin. He is the patron saint of tin-miners, and is also generally regarded as the patron saint of Cornwall, although Saint Michael and Saint Petroc also have some claim to this title.

St Piran’s Day started as one of the many tinners’ holidays observed by the tin miners of Cornwall. Other miners’ holidays of a similar nature include Picrous Day and Chewidden Thursday. The miners of Breage and Germoe observed St Piran’s feast day as that of their patron saint until at least 1764.

What’s it like to go to a family nude swimming session?
“At my first event, I slung a towel over my shoulder and went down for breakfast – naked.”

Events organiser Pamela Fraser, 27, went to her first naturism event 14 months ago. She’s been to 20 since.

Spa days, archery, yoga, cider-tasting and even a Fawlty Towers-themed night with actors playing Basil, Sybil and Manuel – all without an item of clothing in sight.

She describes the first time she got naked at a large gathering as a “non-event’, adding “you soon realise people aren’t interested in what you look like.”

On Saturday, she’ll join around 300 others of all ages, paying up to £21 for a skinny dip at Blackpool’s Sandcastle Water Park.

“It’s no different to going swimming with your costume on,” Pamela believes. “A lot of female costumes don’t hide much anyway.”

Pamela Fraser says she has "never been worried about what I look like"

So why take your clothes off?

“The whole idea is you’re stepping back from the stress of life and the feeling that you have to fit into a certain mould.”

“You wouldn’t take your work clothes with you when you go on holiday and when you go home you probably get changed.

“Sometimes I get in from work and take all my clothes off – that’s me saying this is now my free time.”

Pamela is one of 9,000 people who pay about £44 a year to be members of the British Naturism (BN) organisation. 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…

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…

Petition launched against nude family swim at Blackpool’s Sandcastle – this is what naturists have to say about it
Campaigners say allowing children at the event ‘is a massive safeguarding issue’

A nude family swim session at Blackpool’s Sandcastle Waterpark has attracted a backlash from campaigners who say children should not be allowed at the event.

We revealed how the skinny dipping event is taking place this weekend and open to adults and kids of all ages.

Organised by British Naturism, visitors will be ditching their costumes and trunks to ride the water slides and wave machines in nothing but their birthday suits.

It’s the group’s tenth year at the Sandcastle, where they’re expecting around 300 visitors this Saturday evening, but not everyone is happy with the event.

An online petition has been launched by Emma Hadaway, from Crewe, who says: “I truly believe this is a massive safeguarding issue, children being naked around adults neither their parents or themselves know.”

She adds: “It may be a private event but children should be protected no matter what and should not be allowed at such events. The solution to this would be either to make it an 18s and over only event or to not allow the event to happen full stop.

“I have absolutely nothing against naturists and their lifestyle choice except when it comes to the safety of children.” Continued…Read full original article…

Skin stories: The nude
On an evolutionary level, the human species lost much of its body hair. Thus, the dress, when initially officiating as a cover before the cold, became a focus of cultural aspects not only in reference to fashion, but also in what has to do with “covering” our nakedness, at least in large part West.

A nudity that is conceived only in terms of whether the genitals, buttocks and breasts are visible at the public level, while other parts of the body such as face, legs, feet, arms, hands, back, etc. They can be exhibited to people without major problems depending on the contexts, since it is not the same to be in a bathing suit on a beach than in a museum.

The nude can have an erotic, artistic, spiritual-religious, medical, political, aesthetic, etc. But the sacred value or rather “tabuizado” that is granted, would make the nakedness refer to the authentic, to the external expression of the inner being. To something essential, pure or profound.

On the other hand, the nude would appeal to privacy, to the vulnerability of someone, to the expression of something of the order of the private, which if exhibited without the consent of others in public spaces, may even constitute a “violent attack on modesty”.

It should be noted that Greek antiquity exalted nudity as an ideal of beauty, and that the valuation of the nude is traced back to prehistory, as evidenced by the statue called ” Venus de Willendorf “. Just as many cultures outside the West have never felt the need to “cover” their bodies.

However, the Judeo-Christian tradition through its myth of origin, homologated the original sin committed to access knowledge through disobedience to the deity, with the blame for the nudity resulting from having lost the innocence for pretending “To know”, to which the tradition generalized in a knowledge on the sexual thing.

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…

And the Bride Wore, Um, Nothing (the Groom, Too)

When Carolyn Hawkins, 75, officiates at weddings, sometimes she dresses up and sometimes she dresses down. Way down. Like not at all.

Ms. Hawkins is a nudist. She has been a nudist for 38 years. Last year, she performed five nude weddings.

“The bride and groom are usually naked if they want to have a nude wedding, and sometimes they ask me to be. Sometimes I just wear a cover-up,” said Ms. Hawkins who has officiated at nearly 20 nude weddings, typically one or two each year, since the early 1990s. “I do whatever they want me to do.”

Jack Seay, 64, and Colleen Gordon, 66, married July 23, 2016 at Wildwood Naturist’s Resort, a 118-acre clothing-free facility, in Decatur, Tex.
Jack Seay, 64, and Colleen Gordon, 66, married July 23, 2016 at Wildwood Naturist’s Resort, a 118-acre clothing-free facility, in Decatur, Tex.

There are 31,000 registered nudists in the United States, according to Ms. Hawkins who is also the director of club relations for the American Association for Nude Recreation. She resides in Kissimmee, Fla., at Cypress Cove Nudist Resort, a 300-acre facility with hotel rooms, apartments, campgrounds, restaurants and a clubhouse, where she marries couples.

“Usually they’re in their late 20s, 30s, 40s,” Ms. Hawkins said. “One couple I had last year was 62. They had been together for quite sometime and weren’t really planning on getting married. One day they approached me, ‘Hey if we get our marriage license, would you marry us?’” She did.

Couples who opt for clothing-optional weddings are often nudists, but not always. Some brides and grooms have other motivations. Continued…Read full original article…

New routes, new airlines and new tech for Cornwall Airport Newquay
The year ended on a high with passenger numbers up 20% year-on-year in November and 7.3% in December compared with 2017.

A busy 2018 at Cornwall Airport Newquay (CAN) saw a number of new routes announced, including the much anticipated link into an international hub, London Heathrow; StobartAir adding London Southend (under the Flybe franchise) to its portfolio of routes; and a new airline partner, Scandinavian flag carrier, SAS, introducing a new link to Copenhagen. There was also an increase in passenger numbers in the winter months with Ryanair extending its popular Alicante service to a year-round operation as well as technological advances in both the passenger check-in process and onsite car parks.

The year ended on a high with passenger numbers up 20% year-on-year in November and 7.3% in December compared with 2017. 450,000 passengers used the Airport with projections for overall passenger growth by the end of the financial year meaning a 5th consecutive year of growth.

Cornwall Airport, Newquay
Cornwall Airport, Newquay

Last year saw the Airport make some exciting announcements for both new and existing customers. New charter holiday provider Superbreak announced short breaks to Iceland (Q1 2019) which was enthusiastically received by customers. This continued with Ryanair’s extension of the Alicante summer route becoming year-round, offering a much demanded winter sun destination from Newquay.

Eurowings added to the Airport’s strong German portfolio with new routes, improving the connections for European tourists, an added bonus for many local businesses. This growth within the Eurowings offering gave Scandinavian airline SAS the confidence to announce a new Copenhagen route, bringing the opportunity for further inbound tourism into Cornwall from the Danish and wider Scandinavian market.

Managing Director Al Titterington comments: “We’ve had some fantastic new routes announced over the last year. The Copenhagen route has already proved popular with the Danish market, with flight dates being extended before the first flight has even landed!”

“With our German routes already bringing new visitors into Cornwall, it is hoped that we see this replicated with Scandinavian customers and will continue to grow the international passengers keen to see more of our beautiful county. With our new connection to London Heathrow starting in March this year, we hope that we will see far more tourists from further afield, such as the USA and Asia, who can now easily connect to Cornwall via Heathrow.” Continued…Read full original article…

The four seasons of naturism: winter

Fall is gone, Winter is here, our naturist life isn’t over. Naturism in winter! Really? Yes, you can! You can do it!

Being human is first to remember that the human remains an adaptable animal to the wilderness. In winter, it seems tough, but our body is designed for that! Feeling the cold on your skin is quite bearable. The body adjusts to the cold. Shivering is a normal reaction to cold that actually helps burning calories.

But why being naked in winter? It might seem paradoxical to get unclothed in winter. Let me give you three reasons for us, naturists:

  • To appreciate and feel the perfection of our body.
  • To continue promoting naturism.
  • Because we are naturists who simply enjoy being naked.

So how do we live a naturist winter and survive this cold season? 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…
