Monmouthshire naturist club hopes to attract more residents to join

A MONMOUTHSHIRE naturist club hopes to encourage more residents from the area to join and will hold an open day at its Trellech site on Saturday June 16.

Western Sunfolk currently welcomes naturists from as far afield as Ireland and The Netherlands but wants to attract more people from closer to home.

“It’s a wonderful community where everyone looks after each other”, said Ros Clow, who first visited Western Sunfolk with her husband in 1972.

The group’s members take part in the planning, building, and upkeep of all the site’s facilities.

The June 16 event is open to guests of all ages and includes a variety of activities from boules and croquet to sunbathing and swimming.

There will also be the opportunity to try out miniten, a tennis-like game created by, and for, naturists.

Ros is keen to stress to anyone interested that there is no sexual element to naturism, and that the environment at Western Sunfolk is family-friendly. Continued…Read full original article…

A man who completed Kent’s 5k naked run bares all about his experience
He even went for a swim and had some food at the Naturist Foundation

More than 130 people attempted a 5km run in Kent last weekend. There was one catch though. None of them had any clothes on.

Pete Redwood-Smith, 23, owner of Barney’s Pet Supplies, was one of those people and travelled all the way from Essex to compete on Sunday (May 13).

He said: “As someone that’s struggled with anxiety and depression from a young age, signing up for a naked race was a big deal for me. Continued…Read full original article…

Kerry Robinson grew up in Mackay and believes the number of people that live the lifestyle is around 50.

Nude feud: cracks appear at naturists’ colony

A couple ejected from a nudist colony for renovating a bush cabin have laid bare their wrangle with the club as part of legal action over $80,000 in damages.

However, the experience has left the Ninks feeling anything but liberated, as a battle to upgrade their cabin turned into a nasty feud with the nudist club’s secretary that led to allegations of cups of urine being left on a table. Continued…Read full original article…

Congressional candidate bares all about his nudist retreat: ‘He leads a very unique life’
Time to get to the naked truth about Dr. Steve Foster, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Rep. Tom Graves’ 14th Congressional District seat: Foster owns the site of an “adults only, clothing-optional lifestyle retreat” in North Georgia.

Located east of Cleveland in White County, Mountain Creek Grove rents out tents and recreational vehicle spaces to nudists. The wooded site features a pool, a hot tub and a clubhouse.

Early voting is underway in many states as primary season kicks into full gear. In Georgia, one candidate for Congress operates a nudist retreat and might have a good chance of winning the Democratic primary in the 14th Congressional District.J.D. Pooley/Getty Images

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.

This Love Story Started At A Nudist Park

Ten years ago, Tracia Kraemer wanted to celebrate her 40th birthday by trying something new.

So she mustered her courage and visited Indian Hills, a nudist park in Louisiana.

In a StoryCorps conversation recorded in February, Patrick and Tracia Kraemer recall falling in love at a nudist park.

At the very least, she figured she’d return home with a good story. “I thought I’d go to Indian Hills, get naked, get dressed and drive off,” she says.

But the people she met were so nice and welcoming, she says, that she decided to stay longer that day. “Soon after, I got a membership.”

Two years after that first visit, she met her husband-to-be, Patrick Kraemer, at the park.

“It was our third date before we saw each other dressed,” Tracia, now 50, remembers in a recent StoryCorps conversation with Patrick, 49. Continued…Read full original article…

The naturist trail: ‘Once you try it, there’s no going back’
Pat Gallagher, president of the Irish Naturist Association, and his wife, Mary, are among the few in Ireland willing to speak publicly about the lifestyle. They started off by accident, says Pat

You might think that nudists would be fairly visible and easy to track down. Isn’t there a latent exhibitionism in casting your clothes to the wind and stepping out mother-naked into the sunshine? An out-and-proud statement of personal freedom? But when I set out to find them, it turns out that many Irish naturists are keen to keep their identities, if not their bodies, firmly under wraps, and at least some of them are as slippery as eels.

A prospective encounter with a secret group of nudists from north Co Antrim looks promising until it becomes clear that the price of meeting them was the surrender of my own clothes, in the interests of creating “a level playing field”.

“Go on: dare to bare,” they repeatedly urge me. When I decline, pleading a preference for private nudity – I have no problem leaping naked into the surf on a remote Donegal beach, and have done so, but I don’t want anyone else around to watch me do it – the trail suddenly goes cold.

Nudist swims for kids defended as ‘safe, happy and healthy’
Ryedale Naturist Club offered children free tickets to its naked swims :: Leading naturists said the sessions are in children’s ‘best interest’

Naturists have jumped to the defence of naked child swim sessions, claiming they are in children’s “best interest”.

Leading lovers of nature hit back against “mass hysteria” prompted by Ryedale Naturist Club’s free swim offer to under 18s.

A council investigation was launched into the club after The Gazette disclosed details of an advert encouraging kids to swim nude alongside adults at Derwent Pool, near Malton, North Yorkshire .

References to children, and the club’s free entry offer, have since been deleted from the club’s website after a flurry of online anger.

But British Naturism (BN) stood by the sessions, saying: “A naturist environment is a safe, happy and healthy environment for a child to be a part of.

“Prudery, not openness or nudity, harms children.”

Andrew Calow, from BN Yorkshire, said it is in a child’s “best interest” to see real bodies rather than explore the internet.

He said: “Don’t let readers’ prejudices masquerade as facts. Naturism is a family activity enjoyed by people all over the world.

“Children are safe attending a naturist swim with their parents. They attend as part of a family unit.” Continued…Read full original article…

5 questions to NaturistBnB
5 questions for Naturist BnB – an Airbnb for naturists. The idea is to create a place similar to AirBnB but where clothes free lovers can stay naked on their vacations.

We have been naturist for years and spend without clothes most of the time if weather and community around us permits. We have also travelled around a lot and have many great experiences around the world. During the travels we stayed in various accommodations from luxury resorts to cabins and backbackers hostels. Then we came across Airbnb. We loved the concept and eventually decided to try hosting ourselves. It was million times better what we expected! We have gain a lot of wonderful friends and fun experiences – without leaving our home!

What is a bit tricky with Airbnb however is we have to stay clothed while we have guests in our house. Which we don’t like. We did try to list at “clothing optional” or “nudist” at Airbnb, but our bookings fall down dramatically. Apparently textile people are not interested booking with a nudist host.

Then we started to remembering our naturist holiday bookings. It was always a bit challenge to find the place to go and eventually ended in the most obvious places – where everybody else goes as well. Not the freedom to go anywhere as we had when travelling textile. Then we realised it! There is no Airbnb alternative for naturist people. If there would, it would be fantastic opportunity to travel anywhere and enjoy social nudism with a local host. Best parts of both: textile and nudist 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.

‘Sun worship’. Health and Efficiency magazine, 1935.H&E naturist magazine/Hawk Editorial Ltd.
‘Sun worship’. Health and Efficiency magazine, 1935.

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…

Naturist activities in Connaught, Ireland

I must admit that when I was first approached to put something in print about naturism in Galway I honestly did not know where to start. Naturism is around us, wherever we wish to find the opportunity. For me my home and my back garden present the ideal opportunities and as a result I spend most of my time nude. That is very easy for me, my house and garden are relatively private and being a naturist all of my life I am not really too upset if a neighbour just happens to see me from a distance from an upstairs bedroom window or whatever. I have lived in my present house for almost fifteen years and nobody has thus far objected or complained.

However most naturists are not as lucky as I and do not have the privacy. So how and where do they do to get that all over tan for themselves! They must travel to discrete and secluded places to enjoy their recreation and freedom. The Galway coastline is a rugged one, being constantly battered by the Atlantic Ocean. As a result the coast is in the main a rocky one and to a great extent devoid of sand. Those sandy areas that do exist are, in comparison to those on the sheltered eastern coast, small short stretches. However we also have numerous lakes that are suitable for naturism and nude recreation and I shall include these as well, ones that I have tried out on occasions.

Indoor private nude swim sessions are growing in popularity across the country

NUDISTS have been hosted in seven swimming pools – including one with a slide – as the community grows in numbers across Ireland, we can reveal.

The latest new venue to rent out their facilities was Coral Leisure in Co Monaghan which allowed naturists to use its pool, sauna, steam room and even its water chute.

La randonnée nue est une activité pour laquelle la France détient un record du monde en popularité.

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.

Children in Naturism

Our children are being raised in a society where we are constantly bombarded with messages that make us feel ashamed and insecure about our bodies. We are told that we are only worthy if we reach the impossible ideals of the beauty myth. Concurrently, our bodies are also being objectified and over-sexualized. Naturism is the very antidote to all those ills that afflict our world.

Children raised in naturism learn to accept the human body and recognize that everyone is unique. Comfort with nudity combined with naturist values lead to a healthy self-image and strong self-esteem. Although good parenting is by far the most important factor in raising children, naturism helps to promote their confidence and understanding about their bodies.naturist / nudist baby

Anyone who has observed children knows that they are enthusiastic naturists. We have never seen young children who are self-conscious when nude. In fact, you may observe them squeal with delight when they are allowed to run around nude. It is only in their later years that they are pressured into being self-conscious and adopt older people’s phobias about the body. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudist Reality vs. Cancelled Calgary Nude Swimming Event

It’s 2018 and the community that wears a swimsuit in the pool or ocean has a long way to go to understand the nudist lifestyle and values Recently the city of Calgary cancelled a nude swimming event planned for an indoor swimming/recreation facility sponsored by the group Calgary Nude Recreation.

This wasn’t the first time a nudist group had rented a city of Calgary owned facility for an event and it won’t be the last either. Unfortunately this time, public outcry and threats of violence pushed city officials to cancel the event. An online petition supported by more than 22,000 people framed the argument against the event stating the following concerns:

“I respect the concept and believe in an 18+ setting it could be a popular event. However, having naked children around a bunch of naked adults doesnt seem like a good idea for any reason.

Normally this might not have been an issue but as I know the other group and their principles, I opted not to go feigning the onset of a cold.

Why would I deny myself a chance to go skinny dipping you ask? Well, you see, I once tried to join this other group only to be refused membership because I was a single male naturist.

Losing Clothes, Finding Zen: What It’s Like at a Nudist Resort

Each and every pore on my body is flexed shut. My anatomy — I’ll spare you the details — is visibly cold. I had thought November would be a mild month for Big Sur, California, and I was only half right: It was a beautiful and warm day to be naked outdoors among strangers, but by nightfall, freezing winds are blowing over the Pacific and into my bloodstream. Then I plunge my body into a hot mineral bath, and every cell in my body sighs.

Brennan Kilbane

This is hour seven at the Esalen Institute, where I’ve elected to spend the weekend in the hopes of shedding inhibitions, self-consciousness, and clothing for a few days of totally nude R&R. (Vacations are a lot less stressful when you’re not responsible for a beach bag.) I’m also devoting a total of nine and a half hours to unguarded self work with 30 strangers and two professionals who are also strangers. Annoyingly, I’m calling this “emotional nudity.” Do you get it? There is basically one place on earth that asks you politely to share your innermost thoughts and feelings and fears and insecurities with a group of people you have never met before, and, yeah, if you use the pool or baths, would you mind also not wearing clothes? Thank you so much. Welcome to Esalen. Continued…Read full original article…

A quick history lesson, how nudism got started in the USA.

In 1929 the flow of German immigrants and tourists began bringing the roots and ideas of the nudist lifestyle to America. It was Kurt Barthel, a German immigrant, who got the ball rolling by informing people that nudism was very common in Germany and France and spreading to other countries. On Labor Day of that same year, Kurt and 3 other couples in Peekskill, New York began American Social Nudism. Just a few months later the American League for Physical Culture ( ALPC ) was founded and within a couple of months they had over 50 members. In 1931 the Reverend Ilsley Boone came on board. He was elected vice president of the ALPC. Now things were really moving. Social nudism received national attention in North America with the forming of the National Nudist Conference, then several years later it became the American Sunbathing Association and just a short time ago it became (and is still known as) the American Association for Nude Recreation.

It was not as easy as it sounds. Many of the above clubs were raided by police. In 1956, in the state of Michigan, a Christian radio evangelist took it into his liberty to close down the Sunshine Gardens Nudist Resort, although to our satisfaction, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled naturists have the right to practice nudism within private resorts.

Its president Donna Miller said going nude has physical benefits such as absorbing vitamin D without the barrier of clothes.

“It relieves stress and it also [goes] back to when you were a child, when you would run around without clothes and without a care in the world,” she said.

“You’re going back to that freedom … before so-called responsibilities and interactments came in and it’s a great way to be. Continued…Read full original article…

New section opens at Barefeet Naturist Resort – Naturist Association Thailand
Barefeet Naturist Resort has spent the rainy season in Thailand expanding the resort to double the size. The new expansion will officially open on 24 December 2017.

Gregers and Dao (Disraporn) who own the resort noticed that many guests felt there was too little to do at Barefeet Naturist Resort – apart from the obvious of rtelaxing naked in the garden. So they borrowed 3 mill. baht from their publishing business and built the new phase, which has a 10 x 5 meter pool, a hot pool of 2.5 x 2 meter, a sauna and a bigger room for couple massage and a restaurant. The will also be an expanded sundeck both at the pool side and on top of the restaurant.

It is expected in particular, that hot pool will serve as an intro to naturism for the large number of Thai people, who have discovered the pleasures of the Japanese Onsen style washing houses.As it turns out, the Thais clearly enjoy being naked in these Onsen establishments. Since many go there as couples, but have to split because of the gender separation they practice, it is expected that the new fun experience of doing the Onsen together will introduce many new Thai people to the pleasures of naturism.

Strange Rules and Little-Known Etiquette for Nudist Colonies

Ok, I hate the term nudist colonies. It feels as this was a kind of a sect or secret cult. Then the use of strange seems to mean that this is a kind of a weird places. Any nudist club or resort is neither a sect nor a weird place. It’s a just a place where people live their own lives while enjoying total nudity.

However, the post Strange Rules and Little-Known Etiquette for Nudist Colonies is much better than its title implies. It describes the unknown rules to non naturist that are applied to almost all the nudist resorts in the world, and uses wonderful paintings to introduce each of it. Let’s list the 12 rules described in this post: Continued…Read full original article…

Investigan la tala “salvaje” de árboles en el merendero de la playa de Vera
La asociación de vecinos Veraplayazul, que califica el hecho de “hachazo a la convivencia” culpa al Ayuntamiento de permitir el corte de pinos y el destrozo del patrimonio natural del municipio así como de un punto de encuentro de la ciudadanía.

La asociación de vecinos Veraplayazul ha denunciado que una tala salvaje ha destrozado el merendero de la playa de Vera. Un espacio que formaba parte de su patrimonio natural y cultural pues acogía, frente a un conocido hotel, la única pinada de su litoral y era un punto de encuentro y de convivencia en actos festivos como el Día de la Vieja.

Añaden los vecinos que la constructora de una finca colindante “no sólo ha arremetido contra los pinos” que se asientan en su terreno sino que “ha roto la valla del merendero para comenzar el hachazo por los que acogía el espacio vecinal”, siempre abierto al disfrute del público.

Why hockey players in Australia are going nude
“This calendar, as part of the work we are doing at The Perth Pythons, is our contribution to making hockey a more inclusive sport,” a hockey player said.

Lending its strong support to the LGBT community and to discourage homophobic slurs in sport, The Perth Python men’s hockey team in Australia just did the unthinkable – shed all their clothes on the field for a calendar photoshoot.

“I wasn’t able to stand up for others or myself because I was too scared of being rejected by my teammates,” the watoday.com quoted Perth hockey player Reid Smith as saying. Continued…Read full original article…
