También en invierno el nudismo es posible, al menos para algunas personas que parecen inmunes a las bajas temperaturas, o que acostumbradas a éstas no tienen ningún problema en bañarse en aguas gélidas, revolcarse en la nieve, hacer una marcha por la montaña, o incluso practicar algún deporte de invierno, todo ello naturalmente en completa desnudez. Esto y más muestran las 22 fotografías que componen esta exposición temporal de fotografías.

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. Read on for my expert tips at getting even more sext-ual pleasure out of nudes. Continued…Read full original article…
Roshan Adhihetty is a Swiss photographer who joined a group of nude hikers on their various hiking trips across Europe.
The series is called ‘Die Nacktwandere’, German for “the naked hike”. Shots feature tasteful depictions of average nature-lovers who simply prefer to hike naked.
While Adhihetty never actually joined the naked hikers in taking off his clothes to stroll the trail nude, his photos almost make us want to.
The nude treks took the crew over beautiful mountain tops in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Even though the hikers went without clothes, regular hiking gear like backpacks, walking poles, and packed lunches were still in order. Continued…Read full original article…
The snow yesterday morning wasn’t quite as deep and crisp and even as the photos have, but we had a light dusting nonetheless.
With the children off at various extra-curricular school activities yesterday morning, we took ourselves off to the ‘beach’ that lies just beyond the fence at the end of our garden. I often take a walk, or jog, there with Jim, and I’ve written about sometimes squeezing in some naturist activity, as two friends do, on a ‘tracksuit kind of day’ ; going out for a jog in the hills in summer, finding some mountain stream, stripping off and cooling down in the water.

Ballarat East Bowling Club have come up with an unconventional fundraiser: a nude calendar featuring some of their best bowlers.
The calendar features members doing the usual club duties, such as mowing and updating the score board, while stark naked. Around 150 copies are being printed, featuring people between the ages of 21 and 86.
Club sponsorship manager Catherine Phillips said there were some “raised eyebrows” initially, but members still agreed to strip off.
It is 1:33 a.m. on a Saturday night and I am at church. Or more precisely, I am standing on the roof of a Ukrainian cathedral in North Melbourne. “I can feel the wind through my pubes,” Jordan giggles from the other side of the domed structure. I glance over and see the hazy outline of his lanky body, backlit against the glittering panorama of the CBD.
Oh, did I forget to mention? We are butt naked.
This is how Jordan, a 21-year-old Bachelor of Science student, regularly spends his free evenings. He is vegan, an avid reader of Chuck Palahniuk and a nudist. Continued…Read full original article…
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!
My long-time pen pal Ed organizes an annual summer solstice naked hike in Vermont, and though I could never make it for this group hike itself, I went on the same route with Ed and another friend, Matt, just later in summer (mid-August).
The route includes a part of the famous Appalachian trail, so you’d expect a few fellow hikers, but it’s great to have the law on your side – just make sure to leave your car naked, and you don’t need to hide!-) Continued…Read full original article…
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.
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…
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.
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…
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.
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.

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…
A group of veterinary students have truly gone back to nature in a daring shoot that saw them strip off for a charity calendar.
The students who are all studying at The Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies bared all in a recent shoot that saw them pose alongside the animals they care for.
The calendar released in time for the New Year is titled When Vets Undress and sees the students conceal their modesty by hiding behind alpacas and covering themselves with adorable puppies.
The photos were taken in some of Scotland’s most scenic locations with the brave vets facing the bitter winds of the highlands in order to capture the perfect photo. Continued…Read full original article…
To all the techno-geek engineers out there who over time created the capability for me to build a photo album of naturist memories without concern of what developers might see, who might find out, where copies might end up, and what might happen…..thank you! Thank you from the bottom of my gloriously nude heart. Because looking back on fond memories is one of my favorite pastimes. Nude memories can now be easily included in that.
I suppose the Polaroid provided the same capability many years earlier but on a much smaller scale and certainly with less fidelity. So, I’m not really counting that. But I did utilize a camcorder to provide the same purpose — documenting my new found nudist experiences.
In my younger years, I filmed many of my nude activities — really boring stuff really….cleaning, vacuuming, walking thru the house, my first foray into being nude outdoors, etc… It was just everyday life, but nude. I really enjoyed looking back on them later. It was like getting to step outside myself and get so me living as a naturist. Just going to and fro, nude. It wasn’t focused on seeing my penis and butt. It was about seeing my naturism. Continued…Read full original article…
It’s all made up, anyway. Beauty standards are fleeting, arbitrary, and often impossible to reach.
And besides, if we were all ‘normal’, it’d be pretty boring. Our wonderfulness is in our difference.
That’s the message 22-year-old artist Francesc Planes hopes to explore in his photo series, The Normality Project.
Francesc photographed people who have been bullied for the things that make them different – from a prosthetic eye to their weight – but have learned to embrace and love their bodies. He asked these people to strip naked for a joyful photoshoot that celebrates the things that aren’t ‘normal’, but are glorious anyway. Continued…Read full original article…
When you think of naturists, you probably cringe in horror remembering the time you went skinny dipping after a few too many sangrias.
But as photographer Amelia Allen’s new book Naked Britain points out, naturism is something that’s happening in Britain right now; and though you might not think it, encompasses every shape, age, colour and career.
Here, she explains how shadowing British Naturism clubs for two years changed her perception of ‘beauty’, and helped her learn to love her body.
“I’ve been a fashion photographer for quite a few years”, she told Cosmopolitan UK. “And I spend a lot of time photographing what you would call ‘conventional beauty’ and ‘aesthetically pleasing models’ to promote clothes. I enjoy that industry; it’s fun and creative, but if you leave that bubble, you realise how warped it can make your perception of the human body. Continued…Read full original article…
Christmas is a time for family and festivities, but for one young woman, it was a time of great discovery.
A Tumblr user who goes by the name of “Gallusrostromegalus” on the site saw a picture online that poked fun at women today.
The photo was a meme and it joked that women back in the 1800s and 1900s were much more modest than women are now.
Once she saw it, she recalled one Christmas she’ll never forget. She happened to come across some revealing photos of her great-great-grandmother that were taken in 1890 couldn’t help but disagree with with
Naturally, the story was so funny, she had to post it online for others to enjoy — and boy did people respond to it! While people everywhere are tickled by her story, she didn’t share the original photos themselves — they may have just been too private! Continued…Read full original article…
Gerhard Riebicke was a German photographer who photographed, amongst other things, the naturist movement of the 1920s/1930s, just before naturism entered its darkest hour, tainted by association, for a while, with the entire Nazi philosophy of young, energetic and Aryan.
While some of his choreographed nude photography has a dubious element of faintly echoing later, disturbing imagery of the Nazis (not, incidentally, photographed by Riebicke to my knowledge), we can marvel at his capturing of movement and shape. Continued…Read full original article…
La larga tradición del desnudo en el arte nos ha dejado muchos genios, obras, polémicas y, por supuesto, fotografías. Desde los orígenes de la fotografía encontramos el desnudo artístico como tema. Ha servido para mostrar la belleza del cuerpo humano, pero, sobre todo, ha sido un vehículo para transmitir abstracciones, formas y universos personales (obsesiones, pasiones, fobias…).
La fotografía de desnudo, pues, ha sufrido muchas etapas pero siempre esta ahí. Por eso, es un género constante y presente y muchas veces tabú y que cohibe a muchos fotógrafos que les atrae pero que no lo llevan a cabo. Pero nunca es tarde para iniciarse, así que vamos a desglosar algunos consejos y vamos a conocer a algunos autores para quien quiera sumergirse en ese maravilloso mapa que es el cuerpo humano con todo lo que conlleva y puede representar.

Apps are designed to be a kind of internet-shopping-dating-experience, where you go by looks rather than personality. You’ve only got a few seconds to lure someone in before they swipe left. Looks are what make people give you a chance to explain yourself.
And all dating apps have an element of ‘looks first’ about them, it’s an attitude especially endemic in the LGBTQ community. Apps like Grindr and Scruff are often unforgiving and prone to body-shaming. Men list what they don’t want in their bios – ‘no fats, no hairy, no old’ are not uncommon.

As I stood in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in New York City, all I could see in every direction were artists, models, and swarms of photographers. Today, though, was so much more than an average flashy New York event. The artists, you see, were not pulling out regular cans and tubes of paint, and the models were not donning fancy clothes — on the contrary, the streets were filled with people taking their clothes off.
Today, in the middle of the bustling city, was the annual BodyPainting Day NYC, and for the first time ever, I was ready to join the fun.
I stood in line for body-painting artist Yvett Darcie, who asked me “Give me three words to describe yourself.” I was nervous to remove my clothes and allow myself to be vulnerable enough to let my body be a canvas for her creativity. The thought of being 60-years-old and naked in the streets of New York City with my aging body made me hesitate, but I also wondered how this experience might change and empower me. Over the past year, I have learned that change never happens in the comfort zone, so I looked at Yvett and answered “A Warrior Goddess” as I started to remove my clothes.

Sharing my naturist lifestyle Santana is back with another story about her life. This time she’ll be talking about reactions from her loved ones, after they found out that she started the naturist lifestyle and the way that she shares that with the world. Enjoy reading her story, I found a nice quote online which describes her story pretty good.
As you all have seen already, Harmen and I take a lot of pictures of our naturist lifestyle. We share these photos with friends and family but with other naturists aswell. We do this to promote naturism and to show how nice it is to be a naturist.
Unfortunately this isn’t accepted by everyone. Especially by some of my friends and family. Because Harmen is naturist for a big part of his life, most people that are close to him don’t ask questions about why he does what he does. Me however, am new to this naturist lifestyle and some of my friends and family are having troubles seeing me live this lifestyle. It’s hard for them to accept it, especially that I share nude pictures of myself with the world. My ” best ” friend gave up on our friendship when she found out that I was naturist and made pictures of it. She didn’t want to be confronted with it and was afraid my pictures would be used for other things. Cont…Read full original article…
David Gillham is a man who has been searching for the truth about UFOs for more than 20 years after spotting something he couldn’t explain in the skies above his Truro home.
He was so intrigued by the unusual sight that he started to look into other sightings around the local area, made contact with Army and RAF bases and even started a weekly meet-up for like-minded people to share their experiences.
At its peak, the group had 100 attendees all interested in mysterious activity over Cornwall.
While the group stopped many years ago, Mr Gillham has been inviting “open-minded people” from across the county and farther afield to attend the annual convention hosted by the Cornwall UFO Research Group (Cuforg).
The convention aims to help people learn more about the different theories that could explain unidentified flying objects, share their own stories and find out more about the many sightings reported to Cuforg every year. Cont…Read full original article…
Last week, my iPhone camera needed fixing. To diagnose the problem the Apple employee had to go into my photo gallery. Snatching the phone back to make important deletions first, I asked: ‘Does everyone have stuff to hide on their phones?’
‘Like nudes?’ came the reply. ‘Oh my God. Every phone that comes in, and I mean every one — old, young, men, women — everyone has them now.’
“La ropa es nuestra segunda piel. Se disfraza, revela, puede reflejar nuestro ser más íntimo o ocultarlo. A través de su ropa, él o ella es capaz de exhibir su profesión, estatus social o estado de ánimo. Un traje nos permite asumir que el portador es un banquero, oficinista, agente de seguros … En nuestra sociedad esta es una característica distintiva de respetabilidad. Pero, ¿con qué frecuencia es cierto este supuesto? ¿Podemos confiar absolutamente en esta cobertura? ¿Qué hay realmente debajo? ¿Podría la ilusión ser destruida en el descubrimiento de un tatuaje, o dejar a la persona tan inescrutable como antes? Aquí tenemos la oportunidad de ver las diferencias en la percepción entre una persona vestida y desnuda.”
Ver personas desnudas en internet ya no sorprende a nadie en absoluto. Tal es la fascinación de la red global por el cuerpo que a golpe de click podemos encontrar cualquier persona de cualquier complexión, no sólo desnuda sino en situaciones de todo tipo. Sin embargo, la mayoría de esos desnudos son eso, puro porno, industria, personas arrancadas de su humanidad exhibidas puramente en su valor económico. Cont…Read full original article…
We are promoters of the naked lifestyle, all of you who have visited this website before already know that. And we think that getting naked and enjoying nudity has a lot to do with getting out of your comfort zone, especially in the beginning. It’s often pretty difficult to explain to someone how comfortable your non-comfort zone can actually be. Getting out of it is sometimes a bit difficult and does require a certain amount of guts. Guts to take the first step, guts to give it a try, guts to drop your pants, guts to sign up for a naked Pilates class.
When we were staying at Vassaliki Naturist Club in Greece we had the opportunity to have Pilates classes in the morning. Lins started jumping around the room from excitement when she read the news, she had taken (clothed) Pilates classes before and loves it. Nick on the other hand… well… he’s already happy when he can touch his knees when he bends over. But we are naturist bloggers, we like to try new things and when we see an opportunity, we have to take it with both hands.
Is the naked part really an advantage?
On the info sheet in our room it said that, even though we were in a naturist resort, it was not obligatory to follow the Pilates classes naked. But we figured that we are nudists, we are at a nudist place, we are allowed to be naked and most of all, there would have been no way that Nick would have joined if it had been clothed. So there we were, on a sunny Monday morning at 8am next to the swimming pool. Five naked people, including the instructor, ready to have some exercise. Cont…Read full original article…
Can the contrast between Britain and Germany be more stark than when it comes to public nudity? I come across it on my cycling tour of Germany’s largest island, Rügen, almost as soon as I pedal across the bridge that connects it to the mainland and the elegant Baltic port of Stralsund.
I’ve done just a few miles through shady woodlands and sleepy villages of quaint thatched cottages. There are cycle paths almost all the way and I’m enjoying myself. The sun comes out. In a lovely patch of forest, I swing off down an unmarked track. Who cares about directions? You can’t go wrong here, and I want to see the sea.
I emerge by the water and take a coastal path that soon degenerates into a boulder field. I carry the bike to a beach that is a metre wide, and on it, basking magnificently, is a middle-aged man with a pot belly that is almost a metre deep and sun-ripened to walnut brown. Not a stitch on him. I pause, then edge past. There is no one else around. He is the only person I can ask for directions. Cont…Read full original article…
“Two out of three of my friends have body image issues,” photographer Caroline Fahey told HuffPost. “Most girls I know do.”
In her series “Silver Lining,” the 22-year-old photographer unravels her own complicated relationship with her body in front of the camera. Her self-portraits, captured in bedrooms and bathrooms, backyards and hotel rooms, reject an oversimplified idea of body positivity ― one that implies a hashtag here or a selfie there can yield unremitting self love. Rather, Fahey invites viewers to revel in her moments of confidence, self-loathing and ambiguity, privileging not one above the others.
In one image, Fahey looks out at the viewer from the shower, the clouded-over glass obscuring the edges of her form. A small area of the door smudged clean reveals an egg-shaped sliver of flesh, a fog-framed abstraction that hardly resembles a human form. In another, Fahey bathes in an outdoor shower, while drops of water ricochet off her bathing-suit-clad form. She is Boticelli’s “Venus” in a bikini, both nonchalant and sensual as she gazes off-camera. Cont…Read full original article…
