The Naked Professor: Meet the man posting nude photos to encourage people to live a better life
It all started with a lack of sexual fulfilment and a growing interest in personal development

When trying to encourage positive change in the world, it can be hard to make your voice heard and stand out, no matter how noble the cause.

But one man found a unique solution: strip off and pose for pictures.

Meet The Naked Professor, an Instagram account and blog dedicated to encouraging people – and men in particular – to become more connected to themselves, free their minds, reveal their true selves and be proud of who they are. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudity and Sensations

One of the more noteworthy observations I have made as a naturist is the sometimes feeling of being more naked than other times. When you are nude most hours of the day it almost becomes so commonplace that you forget it. You forget how special it is, because it has become the norm and isn’t really special anymore.

Mundane nudity

But some days I just feel more free than others. Some days my nudity is far more noticable. The breeze is just that much more sensational on my skin, the sun is that much warmer. Sometimes it’s just the blissful feeling of nothing. I just am. Naked. Open to the world. Continued…Read full original article…

Naked Utopia: how England’s first nudists imagined the future

The naked body is as old as humanity. But nudism as a social form, organised into clubs and societies, only came of age in England in the 1920s. Its practitioners were from a range of backgrounds and included those with interests in “physical culture” (today we would refer to this as body building and beauty contests). Many were interested in natural health, including vegetarian and raw food diets, and new exercise regimes from hiking to yoga.

Nudism was particularly embraced by artists and intellectuals as part of a wider set of progressive practices associated with free thought. Many were internationalists inspired by longer standing German nudist traditions, which were far more popular and organised on a larger scale than English efforts. They understood disrobing to be part of a wider ideal of physical, mental and spiritual liberation. Continued…Read full original article…

Que consideramos Bio Nudismo

Menos estrés y más autoestima, eso es lo que inicialmente puede ofrece el nudismo, a las personas que han conocido la forma de vida naturista. Toda una filosofía de vida, donde pierden validez los cánones de belleza impuestos por las modas y que ayuda, y mucho, a la autoaceptación de nuestro propio cuerpo.

El nudismo y en extensión más clarificadora el naturismo, llevan un enorme componente en lo que se refiere al respeto al medio ambiente y a la conservación del planeta.

“El nudismo es una filosofía, una mentalidad, uno es nudista siempre, lo practique o no, porque es una manera de pensar de la persona sobre el cuerpo humano. Creo que todo el mundo es nudista desde que nace y luego la sociedad nos impone la ropa y nos hace pensar que hay algo malo en el cuerpo, pero posteriormente algunos nos damos cuenta de que esta imposición es muy negativa y logramos superar las barreras que nos han inculcado hacia nuestra anatomía”.

Nudity Isn’t Illegal in National Parks, But Don’t Do Anything Weird

Nature is glorious. It can make us feel a whole lot of ways — sometimes nature’s splendor makes us want to charge all the way up a mountain, or break out our stupidest dance move on the beach at sunset, or strip down to our birthday suits and skip through a field of wildflowers.

Signs prohibiting nudity are posted on San Onofre State Beach trails in North San Diego County, Calif. There's actually no federal regulation against it in national parks, but some states prohibit public nudity, so don't assume you are safe to strip down because you're in a national park.

SCHABEN/LA TIMES/GETTY IMAGES

But what happens when our deepest instinct is to strip down naked to take in a primeval forest or a spectacular mountain vista, in a place where a lot of other people are definitely going to be around to spectate? Like in a national park, for instance. Turns out, you wouldn’t be the first person ever to have that impulse. But like so many other impulses, it’s important to know whether it’s legal.

Randonnées naturistes
Si vous deviez croiser cet été votre premier randonneur dans son plus simple appareil, voici quelques informations sur les randonnées naturistes, activité qui fait de plus en plus d’adeptes !

La randonnée nue est une activité pour laquelle la France détient un record du monde en popularité. Cette pratique ne vise pas uniquement de vivre la nudité en commun, c’est davantage un moyen de se rapprocher de la nature. Dans plusieurs centres naturistes Natustar, vous pouvez trouver de magnifiques sentiers pour faire des randonnées naturistes, sans tracas.

A l’extérieur des centres naturistes, les randonneurs nus ne sont pas exhibitionnistes. C’est avant tout la sensation de bien-être et de liberté au contact de la nature qui conduit ces naturistes à faire de la randonue, et non un esprit de défi ou de provocation. Ils sélectionnent et organisent des circuits de randonnée hors des sentiers battus, loin des routes et des maisons visibles. Continued…Read full original article…

Mother defends sharing bath with 10 and 11-year-old sons

A mother who shares baths with her 10 and 11-year-old sons is at risk of “confusing” her boys, a life coach has said.

Ben Edwards, who is a father himself, appeared on British breakfast programme This Morning to debate the issue of nudity in front of your children, and said that, as boys approach puberty, they “tend to fantasise about their mother”.

Journalist Lauren Libbert explained that she was naked in front of her sons and they bathed together often.

His comments came after journalist Lauren Libbert said she continues to bathe with her sons even though they are 10 and 11 – something she said is a “normal” and “enjoyable” part of their family routine, the Daily Mail reported.

Mother-of-three Holly Willoughby suggested Ben was “over-sexualising” the matter, but viewers watching at home appeared to agree with his point of view – tweeting that the mother-of-two’s decision to be openly naked in front of her children was “weird” and “not normal”.

Byron’s nude beach gets stay of execution

Byron Shire Councillors voted at last Thursday’s meeting to continue a trial of changed conditions at the shire’s only official nude beach at Tyagarah but emphasised there was no guarantee the beach would remain clothing optional in the longer term

A spokesperson for the local naturist group told public access that the current trial, which was originally slated for three months but has continued for five, had been a success in clearing out seamy sex abusers whose presence on the beach had increasingly riled beachgoers and local residents.

She called for the beach’s clothing optional status to be confirmed, following the erection of signage, daily police patrols and a range of initiatives by her group. Continued…Read full original article…

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Amongst the Military and Veterans

Today, we share an infographic titled “The Silent Enemy: How PTSD Damages Our Soldiers”.

This infographic points out that many of the serving or veteran military personnel who are diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are simply not receiving the clinical or financial support they need.

This is despite the fact that PTSD is more understood than ever before. In fact, as the infographic points out, doctors have been treating soldiers for psychological effects of combat since World War I. Continued…Read full original article…

Es una de las playas más famosas de España, y no lo es por su belleza, que sin duda posee, sino por albergar una de las construcciones irregulares que más páginas de periódico ha ocupado en los últimos tiempos, se trata de la Playa del Algarrobico.

Es de baja ocupación y normalmente hay dos o tres puntos de máxima concentración , el extremo más próximo a Carboneras en el que encuentras caravanas y pescadores básicamente, a pie del hotel donde encuentras bañistas textiles y en el extremo más alejado del pueblo (más próximo al sopalmo) donde se encuentra la zonanudista.

El naturismo proporciona igualdad entre hombres y mujeres
Si usted disfruta de la Naturaleza, en plena libertad y la vida al aire libre de manera sana, sin malicia o prejuicios, entonces el naturismo es su opción ideal. Si usted acepta estos principios básicos, entonces ya está dispuesto a convertirse en un naturista.

El naturismo es el arte de utilizar al máximo los agentes naturales (agua, aire y sol) viviendo en armonía con la naturaleza en plena desnudez común con otras personas de ambos sexos. No tiene por fin no sólo salvaguardar el equilibrio entre hombres y mujeres de la era moderna por el contacto pleno que proporciona con la Naturaleza, sino también favorecer el respeto mutuo entre los dos sexos y fomentar una mayor consideración de las leyes naturales que rigen el medio ambiente.

Desafortunadamente, el naturismo todavía es poco divulgado en Brasil, aunque ya es practicado por cientos de miles de personas desde hace bastante tiempo en muchos países. Este movimiento internacional, de la cultura del cuerpo libre en contacto con la Naturaleza nació en Europa en la década del 20 y hoy hay naturistas esparcidos por los cinco continentes. La Federación Naturista Internacional representa los intereses de las asociaciones regionales afiliadas, de 22 países. Continued…Read full original article…

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…

Vlaamse internationaal vermaarde pianist veroordeeld voor opnames met camerabril in nudistenkamp
In Bordeaux is een Vlaming veroordeeld tot 5.000 euro boete nadat hij in een nudistenvakantiepark vrouwen had gefilmd. In Amerika is de man een ­gerenommeerde ­pianist en ­orkestleider. Kristof V.G. (45, foto links) zelf zegt dat er een vergissing in het spel moet zijn. “Ik ben al vier jaar niet meer in Frankrijk ­geweest.”

Terwijl zijn gezin een uitstapje maakt, koopt V.G. zichzelf een dagticketje voor het naturistisch vakantiepark. De feiten spelen zich af in de ­zomer van 2017 in La Jenny, ten westen van Bordeaux. In zijn bril zit een camera verstopt waarmee hij urenlang de vrouwen in het park filmt.

Kristof V.G. filmde met zijn bril urenlang vrouwen op een nudistencamping.

“Hij liep vreemd rond, soms scannend, soms ging hij gericht achter anderen aan”, klonk het gisteren bij de rechter. Dat vreemde gedrag en de te grote bril op zijn neus trokken de aandacht van de nudisten en een badmeester. Ze spraken hem aan en vonden de camera. Op de beelden bleek dat hij één vrouw zelfs een hele tijd gevolgd had. Omdat ­anderen filmen op de camping verboden is, moest hij voor de rechter komen. De opnames heeft hij wel nooit openbaar gemaakt. Continued…Read full original article…

Naturismo para borrar los complejos de la adolescencia

La tradición naturista de l’Hexagone está bien establecida. Si cada vez son más los que pisan el suelo de Francia para probar las alegrías de un naturismo respetuoso y tolerante, el naturismo más joven sigue siendo discreto. Hagamos un balance…

¿Una generación púdica?

Si la práctica del naturismo se ha vuelto gradualmente democrática después de décadas de mojigatería, las generaciones nacidas en los años 1990 y 2000 tienden a vestirse. Sin embargo, el naturismo nunca ha excluido a los jóvenes, sino todo lo contrario. Desnudos, las diferencias en edad o riqueza se desvanecen, reforzando la personalidad de un adolescente a menudo desorientado. Desnudos, asumimos lo que somos, ignorando las complejidades y otras imperfecciones que se vuelven menores. Continued…Read full original article…

Deje que vaya desnudo. Cuadernos de Derecho Local

A raíz del incremento de los ataques contra la libertad de expresión hacia los Naturistas por parte de algunos ayuntamientos, y de la asombrosa calificación por parte del Tribunal Supremo español del Naturismo como “no-ideología”, desde el movimiento Naturista venimos pidiendo a profesionales del derecho y a juristas de reconocido prestigio que se pronuncien.

Naturismo, un camino hacia la auto-aceptación

Muchas personas a las que invitamos a conocer más de cerca el Naturismo dicen que primero tendrían que bajar de peso y adelgazar, pero eso nunca sucede. Sea como sea, quienes no se aceptan como son, se comparan a sí mismos con alguien. Inevitablemente es una búsqueda ilusoria, una excusa para ocultar sus frustraciones. Esta frase puede resumir perfectamente la dificultad de cualquier ser humano a sentirse aceptado por el resto de las personas. Muchas personas habrían probado la experiencia de nudismo mucho antes y algunos que no lo han hecho por el motivo de no aceptarse tal y como son.

Existe una teoría bastante fundada, que un cuerpo es mas bonito al desnudo que vestido, muchas personas “ganan” mas cuando se quitan la ropa que cuando intentan esconder aquello que los hace diferentes y seguramente bellos!.

Quien practica el nudismo / naturismo se encuentra a un paso de su auto- aceptación en la medida en que debe reconocer que las diferencias corporales constituyen la imposibilidad de la existencia de un patrón a seguir. Continued…Read full original article…

How to become nudist?
You want to become nudist? You heard about nudism / naturism and you think this is perfect for you. But where do you start with that kind of lifestyle? How to become nudist? Do you just take off your clothes and walk around naked proudly saying “I´m a nudist!”? NO. It is not just as simple as that and there are several valid reasons for that. So, let´s start – step by step guide on how to become nudist from my personal experience.

First things first – feeling good in your skin

This can sound unnecessarily to say but thrust me this is the most important step when becoming a nudist / naturist. Feeling good in your skin can be so much more harder when you have absolutely no clothes on. That means you can´t simply hide your small or big imperfections. You can´t even accent things you love about yourself.

That can be hard for both men and women. We all look different, and we all have different definitions of what looks good. And, let´s be honest – we all want to look good. No matter how good we look to the others we will always find something on our bodies we are not happy with. That is just how it is.

But nudist beach is not catwalk! And don´t ever forget that. Nudist beach is not a place reserved for top models. Regular people just like me and you, people that have couple of kilos too much, people that have couple of kilos too many, short, tall, with long legs, with short legs… that are the people that you will see on a nudist beach. Normal people you can see everyday in your neighbourhood with two important things in common – they feel good in their skin and they love being naked. Continued…Read full original article…

Cuando el cabo Piris ordenó retirar ‘La maja desnuda’ de un escaparate por pornográfica

Raro es el día que no nos levantamos con un nuevo caso de censura en estos tiempos aciagos para la libertad de expresión. Cuando no están encarcelando a algún rapero por cantar las verdades del barquero, un juez decide que secuestrar un libro es lo más normal del mundo (aunque consiga el efecto contrario) o la feria Arco hace un gigantesco ridículo al retirar una exposición por su incoveniente mensaje político.

CRAS: Nudity
This week I present a re-post of a blog I wrote over on my other blog, I hope you like it!

If you’re not familiar with my term “CRAS” go here for an explanation.

Clothing demonstrates to others our character. What we do or do not wear projects our character to the world. As Christians we should strive to project Godly character with what we wear. We do not want to give a false impression of God’s people to the world. We should be humble but also project joy. We should dress according to occasion. Somber times (and corporate worship) call for somber dress and somber face. Joyful times, such as weddings, call for more joyous dress.

Nude Torso
Nude Torso DripTorchStudio

But what about nudity? In my quest to become more Biblical in my thinking and less influenced by culture, this topic has come to mind any time a discussion of “modesty” comes across my newsfeed.

What we wear can demonstrate to others our openness or reservedness. Nudity is to be fully open and exposed. Which is why people generally do not like it. People do not like to be vulnerable. Sins and scars can be hidden with clothing. Continued…Read full original article…
