The four seasons of naturism: winter

Fall is gone, Winter is here, our naturist life isn’t over. Naturism in winter! Really? Yes, you can! You can do it!

Being human is first to remember that the human remains an adaptable animal to the wilderness. In winter, it seems tough, but our body is designed for that! Feeling the cold on your skin is quite bearable. The body adjusts to the cold. Shivering is a normal reaction to cold that actually helps burning calories.

But why being naked in winter? It might seem paradoxical to get unclothed in winter. Let me give you three reasons for us, naturists:

  • To appreciate and feel the perfection of our body.
  • To continue promoting naturism.
  • Because we are naturists who simply enjoy being naked.

So how do we live a naturist winter and survive this cold season? Continued…Read full original article…

Winter Nude

It is that time of year again and lets be honest, for many naturists winter is a difficult time of year. We don’t all live in sunny Florida or a Caribbean island so there are going to have to be some sacrifices. We have had to turn the heat on in our home, and the fireplace has been lit a few times already this autumn. Sadly no more trips to Port Burwell, or Hanlans Point until spring. Worst of all, my wonderful all over tan that reached a healthy glow over the summer thanks to frequent doses of natural vitamin D, has already started to fade. We are entering into the “dire straits” of naturism. I have blogged about the perils of being a northern nudie in winter before but rather than just repost those I thought I would have another look at what we do to get through the sub-zero season and look at options others might find useful, a sort of Winter Naturist Survival Guide if you will.

SURVIVING AT HOME

Staying home is likely the easiest and therefore best option for naturists in winter, even if it means a little less nature. We spend a fair majority of our time naked at home already so it makes a good place to start. One of the best decisions you can make is to invest in a smart thermostat. It was not something I considered previously, Tara has had

one for a year or two and now that I have moved in I don’t know how I lived without one. Even a basic model lets you control the current settings, or schedule changes right from an app on your phone. This means we turn the heat off almost completely during the day when we are at work, and it is scheduled to be nice and warm when we arrive home. Should you somehow mange to be going home early, you just make the change from your phone and in the time it takes to make the journey, I am always clothes free within minutes of arriving home. We also keep the temperature very low after we go to bed. A heavy blanket and each other more than does the job of keeping us comfortable while we sleep. We have the heat kick back up about an hour before our alarm goes off. It’s our hope that by turning the thermostat low during the times we don’t need it, it will recoup some of the added cost of keeping the house at a slightly warmer temperature when we are actually there and wanting to be as clothes free as possible. Ours is an Ecobee and we love it, it came with added remote sensors and connection to Alexa (Amazon) but there are plenty of options out there, and I have done no other research other than using the one we have, so I wont make any recommendations.

¿A dónde viajan los nudistas en invierno?

¿Qué hacen los nudistas en invierno? ¿hibernan? ¿viajan a lugares más cálidos? ¿se abrigan? El nudismo se puede practicar perfectamente en invierno, pero el asunto se complica cuando toca viajar. Lo más lógico es que los nudistas viajen a lugares donde brille el sol en invierno, pero hay nudista a los que nos le importa pasar un poco de frío.

¿Nudismo en invierno?

Cuando caen las temperaturas muchos nudistas dejan de practicar el nudismo, es lo que se llama “nudista de temporada”, según indican en la web Info Nudismo. Cuando vuelve el buen tiempo se deshacen de su ropa, pero hay otras personas que practican el nudismo durante todo el año.

El nudismo que se practica en verano no tiene porque ser diferente al de invierno. Las personas que practican el nudismo en invierno lo pueden hacer a nivel individual o con otros/as naturistas. El nudismo invernal se suele realizar en casas propias, hoteles, centros o asociaciones naturistas. Son espacios es lo que se puede estar desnudo y no pasar frío.

Lukas Enjoying Winter Snow While Nude

Snow fell in the Netherlands allowing Lukas to experience winter that is a bit more like what I did more than a month ago. It is too cold now in Canada and I am currently in Peru before heading off to Ecuador where I hope not to experience any more snow, at least until Easter time when I am back in Canada.

Running barefoot in the freshly fallen snow.

When it snows with a temperature around -5 Celsius, it brings out the child in a man. And I, like Lukas here, take advantage of this magical time to play. I have made snow angels, shovelled snow, tried meditation, and going for short hikes in the countryside, especially if there are trees around to slow any passing breeze.

La cara más divertida del invierno

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.

A Nudist Guide to Winter

As I sat across from a nude Rich Hauver, I wondered if the rest of the people I interviewed over the phone had been completely unclothed at the time, too.

Rachel Fox

We were on the first floor of an inconspicuous two-story house on Vassar Street with an in-ground pool, hot tub and sauna in the basement right below us. This house serves as the main meeting place for Naturist Rochester. Hauver serves as the treasurer, swim host, scheduler and “benevolent despot” of this group.
Naturists like Hauver prioritize a connection with nature a little more than their nudist counterparts, although the terms ‘naturist’ and ‘nudist’ can be interchangeable depending on with whom you speak. Hauver first started exploring nudist lifestyle in the early 1980s. Continued…Read full original article…

Alternatively Speaking !

When the days are sunny so much seems right with the world and when its warm it just makes everything perfect. Alternatively sometimes the weather can take a turn for the worse and we sometimes endure days of really inclement grey damp and extensively cold days. The United Kingdom receives a temperate maritime climate with all four seasons but no extremes of temperature.

While those dwelling in the UK probably wouldn’t agree, the UK’s climate could be summed up in one simple word: mild. As it is a relatively small land mass, there isn’t a great deal of regional variation. However, there are a number of micro-climates; rain and temperature variations are caused mainly by elevation, proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, and to a lesser extent, latitude.

Deep and crisp and even

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.

Waiting for a South American Summer in December

No matter how hard I try, it is extremely difficult to catch the true colours of predawn skies. Typically, like in this image, the sky ends up being brighter than it actually is. The colours seem just a tad less intense as well. Still, the effort is worth it when one considers the idea of not having any sort of photo to capture this moment in time.

Comparing the Netherlands and Canada in November

I have a good friend who lives in the Netherlands. Well, actually, I have other friends who live there as well, but this blog post is about this particular friend who is a naturist like me. His name is Lukas and he has appeared here in the past. He has new photos that he has shared of being active outdoors in November, something I have managed to do as well. But there are differences in our photos as you will see.

On the Canadian prairies, winter has arrived with a dump of more than fifteen centimetres of snow. Snow started falling in the final hours of October 31st and has continued to fall in bits and pieces until today (more is apparently coming). This morning I took the challenge to clear off our driveway and the sidewalk in front of our house wearing as little as needed to accomplish the project. I worked until I had cleared the sidewalk, and the garden path into my neighbour’s yard before the sun had risen. It was a challenge that invigorated, and left a certain part of my anatomy rather chilled. Continued…Read full original article…

Winter Naturism

Well, it’s that time of year once again! For us up in the northern hemisphere we’re already feeling the bitter snow in the west, and fall like temps to the east (Canada).

Does this mean it’s time to do like the bears and hibernate in the warmth of our home? Of course not! Sure, many of us rather the summer like temps such as us to be able to spend the whole day outdoors being natural. There are many things you can do to enjoy winter a little more by taking these ideas into consideration. Check to see if your local Naturist federation or club has indoor activities! Yes, some federations and clubs do offer winter recreation. For instance, here in Quebec/Ontario there is the Federation of Canadian Naturists, Federation of Quebec Naturists and the Ottawa Naturists. Events and activities vary, however, they offer similar things. Swimming, Spa, exercise gym, badminton, Tennis, Christmas and or New Years Dinner or parties, etc! If you give your local federation(s) or club(s) a try to enjoy it, please support them by becoming a member. This enables them to use the money for future events!

Hurricane Irma Wrecks Caribbean Islands and Club Orient Resort

Though many parts of Florida were bracing for the worst from Hurricane Irma this weekend, the storm seems to have caused the most damage to a number of Caribbean islands last week. This includes the island of St. Martin, where at least nine people died and Dutch officials said 70% of homes were damaged or destroyed.

Veterinarian students embrace their animal magnetism as they strip down and pose with playful pooches for cheeky nude calendar in a bid to raise money for drought stricken farmers
Wearing just a pair of leather boots and a farm hat, veterinarian students have dared to bare all in a cheeky photo shoot.

About 70 Queensland students stripped down to pose on tractors and hay bales, not forgetting to include dozens of cute pooches.

Nothing was off limits in the raw shoot, with the students exposing their derrieres in everything from cattle yards to horse stables.

Cornwall: Hitchhiking to Land’s End
Cornwall is full of picturesque landscapes, tales of mystery and dark legends.

Located in the most southwest of England, I set off on foot as I hitchhiked my way across the county, and what I discovered will forever stay in my memory.

Cornwall is a beautiful, with a wild heather landscape that’s filled with fauna and an abundance of flora, not to forget to mention its comfortable climate. I started my journey from the eastern part of the Cornish peninsula.

It didn’t take long for the one of Cornish locals to stop their car along the roadside to assist me with my journey. My general experience with the residents was that all were openly friendly, welcoming and had a permenent smile on their face. For me it wasn’t hard to wonder why they were in such good spirits, because there’s a power present in the nature and landscape of Cornwall that absorbs you in a positive energy.

Hurricane Gert is coming to Cornwall to dash hopes of summer finally arriving

Rumours of a glimpse of summer coming to Cornwall this weekend may have been dashed by the news that Hurricane Gert has formed in the Atlantic.

The weather system, originally designated as a tropical storm, was upgraded overnight – and could spell more wet and windy weather for the UK.

Météo oblige, les naturistes poitevins sortent couverts

Sale temps pour les naturistes dans le Poitou ! Des températures en-dessous des 20 degrés, une pluie torrentielle ces derniers temps… Bref, ça ne donne pas envie d’enlever le haut et le bas. Mais que font les vrais de vrais ? Reportage au “Club du Soleil” de Château-Larcher, dans la Vienne.

On est tous tenté de remettre une couche sur les épaules, le matin, en ouvrant les volets. Des nuages gris, de la pluie, et des températures dignes d’un mois de novembre. C’est dans ce contexte que les naturistes tentent de résister, coûte que coûte, à l’appel du vêtement. Une petite laine ? Un tee-shirt ? Un slip ? Se vêtir, est-ce trahir ?

Un petit tee-shirt et ça suffit à se réchauffer.

Cela fait dix ans qu’Yves et Nathalie pratiquent le naturisme. “Mais uniquement l’été”, s’empresse de rajouter le couple de Chauvigny. C’est bien là le problème. C’est le seul moment de l’année où tous deux peuvent jouir en toute tranquillité de leur pratique. “C’est vrai qu’on n’a pas trop le moral, du coup, avoue Yves, tee-shirt sur les épaules. Avec le tee-shirt, ça passe. Mais pas question de l’enlever pour l’instant.” Read full original article…

Cockington Fayre cancelled on ‘safety grounds’ because of weather

Torquay’s famous Cockington Fayre, due to be held on Wednesday August 2, has been cancelled due to bad weather. It is the first time the event,which was expected to raise up to £10,000 for the village’s St Matthew’s Church, has been called off in more than a decade.

A traditional English summer fayre in the grounds of Cockington Court, it has been a fixture on the summer calendar in Torbay for more than 50 years.

Families enjoy last year’s Cockington Fayre Hannah Maltwood

Organiser Ron Ashcroft said he and his team had been left with no option but to call off the event. He said: “Unfortunately due to the heavy rain recently and the expected heavy rain due on Wednesday we have reluctantly had to cancel the Fayre on safety grounds.”
