Me quité la ropa y los prejuicios para pasar un día en un camping nudista

Nudismo. Ya está. Solo con escuchar la palabra es casi inevitable que te hayas imaginado una playa con gente en pelotas, seguramente mayor y sin depilar, a la que le gusta exhibirse y mirar a otros haciendo lo mismo. Pero solo tienes que googlear esta palabra para saber que la concepción que tenemos del naturismo, un movimiento mucho más amplio que el nudismo ‘a secas’, no deja de ser un saco de prejuicios. Para mí, como mujer milenial que cada día intenta no juzgar su cuerpo, sigo siendo incapaz de hacer topless si hay algún miembro de mi familia o algún hombre a quien yo conozca y que no sea mi pareja. Así que, pensé, si tanta gente lo hace, mucho de bueno debe tener y yo quiero saber qué es. Y me fui a buscarlo, esta vez completamente desnuda, a uno de esos centros del respeto por el cuerpo y la naturaleza: un camping naturista.

Después de conducir hora y media desde Barcelona hasta L’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Tarragona) mi pareja y yo (a quién llamaré M. en adelante) llegamos a El Templo del Sol, uno de los nueve campings nudistas que hay actualmente en España y que, según me cuenta Ferràn Pujol, su Director de Comunicación, es de los mejor considerados. Ferràn me espera en la entrada para darme la bienvenida, para mi alivio, vestido. Me explica que allí todos los empleados llevan ropa para evitar malentendidos. Así que M. y yo todavía tenemos algunos minutos de margen para ‘enfrentarnos’ a nuestra desnudez pública y a la preocupación que le genera el pensar que va a pasarse todo el día empalmado.

El camping que, por cierto, está tan a tope de gente que no hay ningún bungalow, caravana ni tienda de campaña libre donde podamos pasar la noche, es la ‘torre de vigilancia’ que cuida de la zona. Lo único que la asociación naturista que protege la playa natural de El Torn y sus alrededores permitió construir con el fin de repeler a los rascacielos y los adosados típicos de las costas españolas. A día de hoy, aproximadamente 2.000 personas llenan este complejo, creado hace 25 años por una pareja francesa enamorada del naturismo y la Costa Dorada, y pasan el verano haciendo barbacoas, bañándose en su piscina panorámica y montando en bici. Lo mismo que tú o yo haríamos en un camping, pero en pelotas. Read full original article…

Seagull rips off man’s testicle as he sunbathes naked

A rogue seagull ripped off a man’s right testicle as he sunbathed naked in his back garden, it has emerged.

Experts say the fearsome bird mistook the man’s exposed privates as a couple of birds eggs and dropped in for a tasty snack.

As the man – who has not been named – dozed on his patio in his detached home near Ipswich, the seagull swooped from the sky, and with one bite of its beak ripped away the right testicle.

He woke screaming in agony, and saw the bird flying away with one of his ‘crown jewels’ wedged in its yellow beak. Read full original article…

Britain: still a nation of nude prudes

In a recent poll, market research company YouGov found that British people tend to feel uncomfortable naked and are rarely nude in the house or sleeping – and most agree they are too easily offended by sex and nudity

Not only are British people notoriously shy about sex, studies have found that in recent years the nation is having less of it. Due to busy lives, stress and money worries, sexual appetites have been in decline; the sexual revolution of the 60s and 70s, it is said, “came and went”.

According to the poll, 59% of British people are either out-and-out uncomfortable naked, would prefer not to say or are unsure, while 42% are comfortable in the nude. Women (63%) are significantly more likely than men (36%) to feel uncomfortable naked. Read full original article…

Nudist women and why does naturism have a lady problem?
Why aren’t there more women in nudism / naturism today?

It’s no secret to most in the naturist community that naturism has a lady problem. While men tend to flock far more easily to social nudity, as though it’s their life calling to be naked, women tend to be far less open to the experience. While it does vary from place to place, in the U.S., men tend to outnumber women at naturist events, nudist resorts and clubs.

Sometimes the divide is quite extreme, and sometimes it’s more reasonable. But regardless of the situation, as a whole, the uneven ratio is still noticeable. The question is: why?

For those who may not have experienced social nudism, I know what many of you must be thinking: “It’s all heterosexual men who just want to see hot naked women!” But, from my many experiences, this is generally NOT the case. Read full original article…

Tal com vam venir al món
Els naturistes s’enfilaven per camins i penya-segats per gaudir del mar en pau, sense curiosos i sense violentar els tèxtils

Pocs dies abans de morir, quan triava la roba amb què volia ser enterrada, una vella amiga va deixar anar: “És ben bé que a aquesta vida només hi venim a buscar la roba: naixem despullats i ens enterren vestits”. Aquestes paraules són un bon resum de la polèmica que envolta el nudisme o naturisme, segons el punt de vista.

Per uns, els que parlen de nudisme, la cosa és anar despullat, sense més misteri. Per als altres, els que s’anomenen naturistes, el fet de no dur roba és tornar als orígens, al nostre naixement, al dia que arribem a aquest món sense roba.

En qualsevol cas, els amants de banyar-se en pèl han anat conquerint al llarg dels anys racons de la costa on poder prendre el sol sense cap roba de bany i, sobretot, sense que ningú se senti incòmode. La tònica general era i és dur banyador, per això els natu­ristes, respectuosos, s’han amagat per no molestar.

En aquesta recerca de llocs apartats, els naturistes han descobert i han acabat habilitant cales que són veri­tables paradisos terrenals. Fins fa ben poc, el públic en general es banyava a les platges de més fàcil accés, mentre que els que volien fer-ho sense roba caminaven una mica més, s’enfilaven per camins i penya-segats, i gaudien del mar en pau: sense curiosos i sense violentar els tèxtils.

Toronto loses more than a sunbathing spot whenever Hanlan’s Point Beach closes
Reopened after high water levels forced the clothing-optional beach to shut for three months, Hanlan’s is a rare public space that encourages body positivity

Before Shane Hollon visited Hanlan’s Point for the first time in 2013 he had no idea Toronto had a clothing optional beach.

On the recommendation of a straight couple, he and his boyfriend (now husband) made the trek to strip down. Hanlan’s was his first time exploring naturism – going nude in a social setting, usually outdoors – and while he doesn’t consider himself a full-time nudist, the beach became a special space of acceptance and body positivity.

“As soon as we stepped foot on the dunes and saw the naked bodies in various states of repose we knew we were home,” says Hollon, a Toronto-based performer and activist union member. “Undressing in front of strangers can be intimidating the first time. Here, where it was encouraged but not enforced, we didn’t feel any shame.”

This summer, prospective beach-goers to Hanlan’s Point were heartbroken by extensive flooding that left swathes of Toronto Island Park submerged for most of the summer. Read full original article…

À Saint-Marc-sur-Mer, les naturistes veulent revenir sur la plage de la Petite Vallée

Depuis le 1er juillet 2017, il est interdit d’enlever son maillot sur la plage de la Petite Vallée à Saint-Nazaire. Colère des naturistes qui ne comprennent pas la décision du conseil municipal. Ils demandent à la mairie de revenir sur cette décision.

Les naturistes sont priés de se rhabiller ! Depuis le 1er juillet, des panneaux ont été installés à l’entrée de la plage de la Petite Vallée à Saint-Marc-sur-Mer (Saint-Nazaire): la zone naturiste est supprimée, décision de la municipalité. Du côté des adeptes du naturisme, c’est l’incompréhension. Ils souhaitent que la mairie revienne sur sa décision.

Ils ne s’attendaient pas à cela en arrivant sur la plage au début de l’été. Les naturistes habitués à profiter de la plage et de la baignade sur cette petite crique ne sont plus les bienvenus. Avec La Turballe et Préfailles, Saint-Nazaire est la troisième ville de Loire-Atlantique autorisant, la pratique du naturisme sur certaines plages. Depuis la fermeture de la Petite Vallée, il n’en reste qu’une, celle de la Jaunais. Read full original article…

Nudismo en el Campo de Gibralter

Bienvenidos a nudismo en el campo de Gibralter. Lugar de promoción de los exceptionales parajes para la práctica del nudismo que encierra la comarca, donde un entorno natural privilegiada y un clima extraordinario se dan la mano.

Las singulares condiciones que se dan en ella, hacen que sea un destino para la práctica del nudismo de una calidad extraordinaria, vinculada a una costa aún a salvo del turismo de masas y donde la armonía del desnudo con el entorno cobra una enorme fuerza. En este espacio trataremos desde los enclaves, su evolución y estado, a toda clase de temas vinculados a la filosofía del nudismo, su defensa y promoción. Read full original article…
