When it rains, clothes aren’t always the smartest thing

Rain. We all know it.

This is no exactly what happened to me a few days ago (unfortunately), but I made the best of the weather anyway.

Naked in the rain

It’s been hot and dry here for a long, long time. Finally, the rains have come. That’s good, because crops and lawns don’t do well on just sunshine. (If you know better, please explain how that works.)

The long, dry period however made that the water drains on the outside gallery of my apartment (I live on the fourth floor, which for Americans is the fifth floor) got clogged with tiny bits of leaves, dirt and other stuff. Which means that water falling from the sky can’t leave.

Now having the whole gallery (where the people walk to get to their front doors) flooded isn’t the greatest thing when the water decides to come inside for a visit. I am sure you can relate to that. No one else on this floor (four homes in total) had the bright idea to look at the drains when it started raining. And it rained hard.

Nudists swelter in sizzling heatwave

Public nudists have come under fire in Germany as Europe sizzles in temperatures of up to 45C in the heatwave dubbed the “Sahara bubble”.

In Brandenburg, police posted two pictures of a man riding a moped naked and called for captions of the images.

“Because we’re speechless,” said police, adding the hashtags #heat, #safetyfirst and #livingontheedge.

As contributions and queries poured in over whether the man flouted any rules, police clarified that it was not illegal to go around nude in public, but only so long as no one files a complaint.

In Germany’s south, topless female sunbathers sparked a row after five fully clad security men walked over to tell them to put their bikini tops back on, Sueddeutsche daily reported.

Several other sunbathers nearby stood up for the women, and one told the newspaper: “We took off our bikinis out of solidarity.”

Couple quit high-flying jobs to set up naked resort in Mediterranean
A BRITISH couple have ditched their careers to set up a naturist resort in Greece.

While some Mediterranean destinations are seeing a dip in tourism due to the uncertainty of Brexit, that’s not the case for Mark and Sam Taylor.

The couple’s naked ambition shocked family and friends when they first launched their surprising venture over a decade ago.

Fortunately for the duo, their naturist resort has paid off and they have grown a loyal customer base over the years.

So far this year they have an unprecedented occupancy rate of 84% and are still taking bookings from Brits who prefer to go naked for their holidays.

Mark, 47, said: “We are aware that the tourism trade has been hit by Brexit but this is our busiest year ever.

“The vast majority of those customers are repeat bookings. We’ve had regulars that have come back every year since we started.”

It Was a Dark and Stormy Day
Yes, it sounds like the beginning of a suspense novel. However, it is simply a description of the current weather. We’ve been hoping for rain for quite some time. Finally, it has arrived. With it, there has been a surprising drop in temperature. Here it is mid-morning with the rain on hold after just more than an inch of rain in the past 24 hours, and it is only 10 Celsius. Naturally, I am spending the morning, for the most part, indoors at the computer.

Genealogy – family tree online
Genealogy – family tree online

Today’s post is meant to serve as presenting a normal picture of life. I am a naturist. At least, that is one descriptor of who I am. Yet, I am more than that. Rather than having my penchant for living as many hours of my life as possible while nude define me, I want to show how much the same I am with the general population of humanity. Now, I am a month shy of seventy years old. Something typical for people my age, is an interest in genealogy. I have had a DNA test done [actually two of them] with the purpose of helping me locate missing strands of the family history.

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.
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!
