Why we need to distinguish nudity from sexuality

There has been an awful lot of misunderstanding this past week about the nude wave-pool event at a Calgary leisure centre that was cancelled. A lot of people expressed concern that the police were not taking worries seriously and that there would be children present and, therefore, pedophiles.

These concerns are certainly valid, and it’s understandable why someone would be confused as to the nature of the cancelled wave-pool night.

We all care about the safety of children, including participants of the cancelled event.

Being naked on vacation is becoming increasingly popular

Naked travel or “swimming” was already named as one of the fastest growing trends in the travel industry earlier this year. Naturism is an age-old concept, but the trend is increasingly reaching the general public through the many health benefits and tranquility and space that a naturist vacation brings.

Three pillars that tourists are often looking for these days. France 4 Naturism, the largest provider of naturist holiday villages in the most charming areas of France, will reopen its doors to visitors this month. For anyone who wants to be one with nature and is looking for an oasis of peace in luxury camping accommodations, a naturist vacation can bring exactly that result.

Virtual event breaks world record for charity ‘strip and dip’

An event raising money for childhood cancer has broken an official Guinness World Record for the “most photos of people in water uploaded to Facebook in one hour”, as part of a fundraising ‘Strip and Dip’ drive.

It is the second world record for Strip and Dip, which has to date raised €780,000 for childhood cancer, and purchased a house for the children’s cancer charity Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.

In 2018, it broke the record for the World’s Largest Skinny Dip, with 2,505 women in attendance.

Why the hell am I naked and sober in the middle of a field? A first-hand experience of the alcohol-free festival.

A couple of years ago, feeling fed up of come-downs and hangovers, I googled ‘festivals with no alcohol’ and discovered Buddhafield, which takes place annually in the middle of the Somerset countryside. What makes this event unique is that attendees do not consume any alcohol or drugs for its duration. There isn’t a single bar in sight and you can’t bring your own drink.

It seemed unusual to find an event that didn’t expect revellers to be getting completely out of it, so I felt inclined to investigate further. Check out the official Buddhafield website here. None of the photographs in this post are from the actual event as I didn’t have access to a camera or phone. For official photographs of the festival, visit this page. It’s well worth a look. The images are of an excellent quality and really paint an accurate picture of the warmth and freedom that was so integral to the event.

The emerging long-term complications of Covid-19, explained

“It is a true roller coaster of symptoms and severities, with each new day offering many unknowns.”

At first, Lauren Nichols tried to explain away her symptoms. In early March, the healthy 32-year-old felt an intense burning sensation, like acid reflux, when she breathed. Embarrassed, she didn’t initially seek medical care. When her shortness of breath kept getting worse, her doctor tested her for Covid-19.

Her results came back positive. But for Nichols, that was just the beginning. Over the next eight weeks, she developed wide and varied symptoms, including extreme and chronic fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, tremors, headaches, difficulty concentrating, and short-term memory loss.

I had a dream… and it came true.

What would you say is the definition of success?

Stereotypically, when we think of successful people we think of wealthy people. Yet everyone has their own version of success and even the smallest achievements are still successes. I don’t believe success is how much money you have in the bank, or how many people recognise your achievements. I used to think a happy life equals a successful life, but then I realised happiness comes and goes, it can last for months or just flitter through you for a brief moment. So I’ve been thinking perhaps success is turning your dreams into reality. The dictionary definition of success is “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.” Whatever aim we have for our day, whether it’s big or small, if we achieve it then that is a success, therefor we can all be successful everyday. It just comes down to whether we put our plans into action.

The 12 days of ‘Operation Bug’ – The Madrid region’s disastrous plan to save its senior residences

On March 26, the premier of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, announced an action plan to curb coronavirus contagion in the region’s senior residences. By the time the Popular Party (PP) leader had made the announcement, 1,130 nursing home residents had already died from Covid-19. Hours later, the so-called “Operación Bicho,” or Operation Bug, got underway. This was the code name used by the person who, without any relevant experience, was tasked with protecting the health of nearly 50,000 seniors. That person was Encarnación Burgueño.

Burgueño is the self-appointed managing director of Cardio Líder, a trading name that is not properly registered as a company. On the same day as Díaz Ayuso’s announcement, Burgueño was placed at the helm of the regional health department’s response to the crisis. This consisted of providing medical assistance in senior care homes, instead of transferring patients to hospital.

Getting naked in quarantine: Interest peaks in nudist lifestyle during COVID-19 pandemic

After months of COVID-19 related closures, naturists are removing the shackles of life in quarantine by removing their clothes.

“There’s something about taking your clothes off that makes you feel like you’re really finally losing all the shackles of society and all the rules,” says Stéphane Deschênes, owner of Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park near Newmarket, Ont. “You almost feel cleaner because your body is breathing and you can feel the sun on your skin. Makes you feel very alive.”

And Deschênes is not alone. The naturist resort has been welcoming more visitors than usual during this time of year, especially thanks to sunshine and summer-like temperatures last weekend.

Birmingham nudist Clover Hotel ‘uncertain’ over reopening after lockdown rule change

Tim Higgs, the owner of Clover Hotel and Spa at the clothing-optional venue in Erdington, said half his income comes from spa facilities which the Government said must remain shut

The owner of a Birmingham nudist hotel said he could partly reopen his business after lockdown restrictions were eased by the Government – but may stay shut because spas are still banned.

Tim, who has run Clover Hotel and Spa in Erdington for almost a decade, would be able to safety open his hotel and gardens after Prime Minster Boris Johnson announced the lifting of rules in the hospitality sector.
