Fuerteventura – A Naturist Holiday with Holly

I remember my first naturist break away from the “real” world five years ago. I went to a naturist campground and spent five days in a setting which only required that I wear clothing when I got cold [it happened – Canadian prairies in early June]. I did have to put on clothing when I left the sanctuary of the Green Haven Sun Club. Years later, my wife and I went to Costa Natura in Spain for two weeks. Like at Green Haven, once I left the grounds of the large naturistcommunity, nudity wasn’t an option.

Clothing required – but when an opportunity presents …
Clothing required – but when an opportunity presents …

Holly, my Twitter friend, has just returned from her first naturist holiday to a site in Fuerteventura. And as to be expected, once outside the complex and away from the clothing optional beach, she wore clothing. And, as you can see in the photo, she accepted that condition with grace. In a recent post she stated: “I may be clothed but you don’t need to be naked to be a naturist – it’s a mindset not a state of dress!”

Now, I have to confess that I cross the line from naturist site to clothed [textile] site and find myself daring to go nude, taking risks. Of course, I try to be extra careful in setting up the photo scene. An example was yesterday when I visited my friends at Prairie Suns Naturist Club. On the way home, which I was doing while driving nude, I stopped at a creek which had overflown its banks – Eagle Creek. There, I again set up my camera and took a photo, just one photo, of myself in front of the creek. I was seen by two separate passing motorists. Luckily, no one stopped to investigate.

Creator of body positive Instagram feed filled with snaps of NAKED hikers enjoying the great outdoors claims it’s been ‘shadow banned’ by social media giant

  • Naturist Brendan Jones, 27, has slammed Instagram after account was shut down
  • Get Naked Australia feed features nude hikers of all shapes, ages and sizes
  • Healthcare worker, from Sydney, says images do not sexualise bodies
  • Claims the feed is no longer searchable for anyone other than existing followers

The man behind a body positive Instagram account that encourages followers to share naked snaps of themselves enjoying the great outdoors says it’s been ‘shadow banned’ by the network.

Naked Britain: Fashion photographer to open naturism exhibition
Fashion photographer Amelia Allen took off her clothes to document naturism in Britain. As an exhibition of her work opens in Edinburgh, she talks about how the project changed the way she felt about her body

How did you come up with the idea for this project?

My inspiration for the book Naked Britain came from an image taken by Magnum photographer Elliot Erwitt from 1968 of a naturist couple in Kent. I first saw his exhibition in New York when I was 16 before studying his work in photography at A level. I often photographed my friends naked and loved that the images where people appeared most vulnerable and raw were the most beautiful and honest. This triggered an interest in a community where people were naked all the time and I researched naturism to see if this existed in the modern day and particularly in Britain where our attitudes to nudity seem slightly dated.

An image from Amelia Allen's book Naked Britain
An image from Amelia Allen’s book Naked Britain

Being a fashion photographer means that I have spent the majority of my career photographing conventionally beautiful and aesthetically pleasing models who are used to display clothes. Everything surrounding this is, of course, to do with body image and having to look a certain way to fit a specific societal construct of what is seen as beautiful. Growing up today, through such a politically dynamic time, where women’s rights are a huge issue, I wanted to create a project that took liberation and freedom of body image into the limelight. I wanted to photograph a community that represented equality in body image, appearance, sexuality and gender.

As the project progressed I was fascinated by the fact that one week I was shooting London fashion week runway shows, and just 20 miles away was an entirely naked community, lounging in their own freedom of self love, liberation and body acceptance. Continued…Read full original article…

What You See In a Photo of Someone Nude

There is something very interesting about photos of nudists, naturists, and otherwise just naked people. Though you see the body, perhaps in your opinion, too much of their body, you don’t see what lies beneath the skin.

The conscious self is only ego and skin deep.

One of my friends, Lanie is an artist-model, more often than not doing her work in the nude. I have followed her career as a model and I am continually surprised at what the next set of photos reveal about her … or is it what it reveals about the photographer?

FKK-DDR

I found a tranche of photos online purporting to be examples of East German naturism (i.e. the DDR).

I can’t vouchsafe for their authenticity, although one or two definitely are -the book and magazine covers in the first two photos.

Another has a ‘DDR’ plate on a car. The car’s from East Germany, then, but it doesn’t necessarily place the model in the country, or underline her place of birth.

When Germany was divided in two after the war and the east fell under communist rule, it was run with an iron fist in many respects, its citizens under surveillance. The Stasi, the East German secret police, spied on its citizens, and one had to be very, very careful who one spoke to about what. So paranoid was the state that the security services analysed garbage. Yes…having your bin (i.e.. garbage can) searched for evidence of ‘western food packaging’ was part of their remit.

What Makes a Photo a Naturist Photo?

The sky is overcast today with just the occasional whisper of a shower from time to time. It is quite warm, regardless, and we are enjoying the day. This morning we went for a shorter walk of just over four kilometres rather than our usual ten kilometres. Rather than wearing our Kiniki bathing suits, we wore clothing for the walk along the shorter section. Since it wasn’t sunny, it almost seemed pointless to wear bathing suits. Besides, swimming wasn’t on our agenda. Now that we are back, I have time for some writing and blogging.

I wondered for quite a while before deciding the theme for today’s post, quite some time actually. It wasn’t as if there is nothing to say, but whatever was to be said had to what emerged from within me rather than be forced by my head. It was the photo I took that had me realise that it was the use of images in social media in general that needed to be addressed. This photo above obviously shows that I am fully nude. It is Facebook friendly for a photo of a male nude though not Facebook friendly if this had been a photo of a woman. My nipples are safe while a woman’s serve as triggers for some, especially the good folks at Facebook. Continued…Read full original article…

WNBR – Mexico City 2017

It’s been a month since the devastating earthquake in Mexico City, and let’s hope it will recover well, to be better than before. I saw quite a bit of this city in June during one of the most fun events imaginable: the World Naked Bike Ride! Already in my first ever WNBR – in Madrid 2009 – it was clear that such rides provide an amazing way to see the city, and in the company of hundreds naked (or so) people. Can you think of a better city tour? And it’s all for a great cause to promote cycling to be the major mode of urban transportation in response to ever increasing pollution and overpopulation. Nudity here helps to get the message across: cyclists use the pure power of human body (so, show that body!) – and yet we are the ones who are most prone to the truly indecent exposure to the traffic and vehicle pollution.

And it doesn’t hurt to get some more specific messages written on those naked bodies, so in the beginning of the event, many people spend time with body-painting and decorating themselves in other funny and creative ways. I had ‘energía pura’ written on my thigh, and this guy – ‘fragile’, another reminded to keep the distance of 1.5 m away from cars (‘distancia de autos 1.5 m’), others just acknowledged their love to cycling, etc etc. Continued…Read full original article…

A Kiniki Experience With Holly – Before and After

I’m in Olon, Ecuador waiting for another walk along the beach. It hasn’t exactly been the sunniest time I’ve spent along the Pacific Ocean, so it is hard to tell at this point just how well my Kiniki [tan through] bathing attire will work out when I am on a public beach. I’ve written previously about the bathing suits I bought to replace my previous briefs that definitely didn’t allow any sun to colour the private areas.

Holly decided to get such a bathing suit for her use, which finally got a work out during a trip to Gambia in the recent past. She graciously provided me with an image of her bathing suit before use, and another post-use which is also included in this post. Now, the whole idea that we need to own such a bathing suit is beyond ridiculous. Since more than 99.99% of the population has either a male or female body [I’m not talking about gender identity which is a completely different matter] there is nothing to be seen that isn’t as common as a grain of sand when clothing is set aside.

Beautiful And Peaceful Loch Ailort

During my recent Scotland trip we had a day out. As lovely as it was around Glencoe, we decided to travel out to the most western part of mainland Britain. On the way we passed Loch Ailort. We still had the low cloud, but it looked so beautiful we had to turn around and find a place to park. With the tide out we had plenty of space to wander out and have a look around. Once away from the road it quite secluded, and incredibly peaceful.

Got the wellies on now as i wander about a bit.
Got the wellies on now as i wander about a bit.

My mate is used to me stripping off at times when out and about on our photography trips, so is fine with me taking time out to enjoy the freedom of being clothes free. The air was very still, the temperature mild, and with the secluded peacefulness of the area, i could not only get some photos, but have time to really take in the beauty of the place whilst nude.

I don’t think most people really understand why some of us love being naked in the great outdoors. Clothes are there to protect us when we need it, but the feeling of the air against the body, to feel like you’re a part of the natural environment. It’s our natural state, and a state i strongly believe we should be able to experience much more. Continued…Read full original article…

A holiday mindset?

I’ve become convinced that, like a summer holiday, Christmas is a time when people can ‘let their guard down’ a bit.

Many women who would never contemplate going topless (or nude) at home will happily shed their bikini top, or more, when taken out of their usual habitat and routine. It’s a time to do things that are a bit ‘silly’.

The same goes for Christmas. Another, different, holiday period when people’s inhibitions are lowered. Continued…Read full original article…

This Gold Coast nude blogger says she gets body shamed for being thin
Her body-positive Instagram feed hasn’t stopped the haters from hating.

There’s no arguing that we live in a social media world. And while we use Instagram as a platform for inspiration, motivation, and most importantly, to showcase the best version of ourselves, some people really have nothing better to do other than to find enjoyment in leaving nasty body-shaming comments on posts.

Although you might be thinking body-shaming only applies to a particular group or size, The Nude Blogger, aka Jessa O’Brien, explained in a recent post that even she has endured body-shaming as a ‘thin’ person – calling out what she says is a ‘”double standard”.

The Gold Coast local has over 74,000 followers on Instagram, where her feed is, you guessed it, filled with images of her posing nude – in the ocean, doing cartwheels, at yoga, taking an outdoor shower, you name it. While it might not sound exactly PG-rated, O’Brien accompanies her snaps with captions that focus on self-esteem and acceptance. Continued…Read full original article…

There’s a Tribe of Modern Day Nudists in Australia
Stepping up to a mind-melting lookout, whipping your clothes off and letting your unmentionables dangle as freely as the day you were born. Welcome to the secret life of modern day nudists.

He never really understood the big fuss around nudity and never developed the awkward inhibitions that he reckons society places on us. “It’s no big deal in my eyes, we’ve all got the same parts and we’ve all seen it before!”

How It All Began

Like all good things, it started out as a bit of innocent fun. As a modern day Christmas gift for his fiancé, he snapped twelve shots of himself at Sydney’s most scenic locations, each with a common theme: only a birthday suit allowed. He turned the cheeky pics into a calendar, covered it in tinsel and made his partner’s Christmas that year.

For a giggle he also created the Get Naked Australia Instagram page. It would seem there are a few closet fans of naturism out there too, the page went viral and in a little over a year the page has grown to 216k followers and become one of our favourite social pages in the digi-sphere.

Initially it was just his friends joining the starkers party, but it quickly snowballed and now fun folk from the length and breadth of the country share their prized snaps with Brendan. Continued…Read full original article…

7 Tips to Elevate Your Nude Selfie Game

Taking nude selfies is an act of erotic expression, and sharing them with a trustworthy partner can deepen your intimacy (plus make for tantalizing foreplay). Sadly, the joys of this pastime are often eclipsed by anxiety over photos being stolen or shared without consent. Considering the pervasive mixed messages about our bodies and sexuality, it’s no wonder that sexting has become such a fraught topic.

Ever since writing an advice book about sexting, I’ve been fascinated by the politics of this most modern of subjects. Taking a naked picture of yourself and sharing it is consensual adult sex; distributing such pictures without the subject’s consent or looking at them without their permission is abuse. As long as everyone involved enthusiastically consents at every step of the way, taking and share nude photos is one of the hottest things you can do.

Hiking the Appalachian trail in Vermont… as nature intended

Although the US has a fame for being a prude country, there are some local exceptions, and Vermont is one of them: there is no state law against public nudity (though there is one against disrobing in public :D) And with all those green mountains around (just think of the state’s name etymology), it’s a perfect destination for naturists!

‘I dare you’

A flurry of recent ‘My first time’ contributions got me thinking. Looking back over some of those posts, it’s clear that for many of us there’s an element of initial ‘dare’ about our first exposure in public. This doesn’t have to be a direct ‘I dare you’ approach, but can manifest itself in different ways.

The most recent ‘My first time’ contribution from Deborah suggests she didn’t want to appear prudish or embarrassed, and thus dove into the experience head first. My own naturist debut was a little bit similar.

Peer pressure.

So I made up a notecard which I distributed inworld to SL friends (who have identified as naturist in RL…some of my SL friends are only SL naturists) asking two simple questions. Continued…Read full original article…

Photographer takes pictures of naked – and beautiful – old women

Libby Magness Weisberg waits at her Cherry Hill condo in a plush pink bathrobe and animal-print slippers. In a few minutes, she will pose for photographer and artist Nancy Hellebrand — completely naked.

Weisberg is 90.

Photographer Nancy Hellebrand is creating nude photos of women’s bodies, often focusing on parts and small details.

Her body bears witness to the progression of life, of carrying and breastfeeding three children, of age spots and wrinkles and sags, of hips that creak and shoulders that hunch, and all the other travails and indignities of getting old.

Some might call her body a battlefield. Hellebrand calls it beautiful.

“I love their wrinkles,” says Hellebrand, 73, tall and lean with a shock of wild gray hair and round, red glasses perched on her nose. “I love their skin, the way light is on their skin. It’s a different version of beautiful. In younger women, the skin is taut. In older women, the skin is the opposite of taut … and it has its own strength.” Continued…Read full original article…

Riding BAREBACK: Female jockeys strip with whips for VERY saucy calendar
FEMALE jockeys have stripped off and left just their helmets on as they pose for a cheeky charity calendar.

The riders are pictured on horseback and in front of a racecourse for the sultry photoshoot.

In one shot, the women pose with riding whips and crowd into a tub.

In another, the girls tap each other’s backsides as they gaze into the camera in nothing but their jerseys.

Facebook asks users for nude photos in project to combat revenge porn
In Australia pilot effort, company will ‘hash’ images, converting them into digital fingerprints that prevent any other attempts to upload the same pictures

Facebook is asking users to send the company their nude photos in an effort to tackle revenge porn, in an attempt to give some control back to victims of this type of abuse.

Facebook is working with an Australian government agency to pilot the technology.

Individuals who have shared intimate, nude or sexual images with partners and are worried that the partner (or ex-partner) might distribute them without their consent can use Messenger to send the images to be “hashed”. This means that the company converts the image into a unique digital fingerprint that can be used to identify and block any attempts to re-upload that same image.

Facebook is piloting the technology in Australia in partnership with a government agency headed up by the e-safety commissioner, Julia Inman Grant, who told ABC it would allow victims of “image-based abuse” to take action before pictures were posted to Facebook, Instagram or Messenger.

Someone tried to sell Sia’s nudes, Sia leaks them herself
The singer posted the image on Twitter with the caption ‘Everyday is Christmas!’

Sia has one-upped a website selling her creepy, long distance lens nudes by posting them herself on Twitter. The photo, which was shot without her consent or knowledge, was for sale on a website charging to unpixelate the image. The watermark for paparazzi agency FameFlyNet is visible on the image.

Not wanting to let anyone make money off non-consensual images of her nude body, Sia, famously protective of her image and privacy, posted the image herself on Twitter with the caption: “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” Continued…Read full original article…
