Four Cornwall beaches named among the cleanest and safest in the UK
Blue Flags, Seaside Awards, and water quality ratings have all been taken into account

A list of the UK’s cleanest and safest beaches has been compiled by Ann’s Cottage surf shop.

Four Cornish beaches have been named among the top 11; Porthtowan, Porthmeor, Carbis Bay, and Widemouth Sand.

The research has taken several factors into account. Each of the featured locations has earned itself a water quality rating of ‘excellent’, a Blue Flag status, a Seaside Award, and has proven negligible traces of e. coli or enterococci in the past year.

The annual Blue Flag and Seaside Awards were announced last month. This year Cornwall has the second most Blue Flag and Seaside Awards in the UK, behind Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Six beaches in the county have received both Blue Flag and Seaside status; Gyllyngvase in Falmouth, Porthmeor in St Ives, Porthtowan, Widemouth Bay, Trevone Bay and Newquay’s Great Western.

Allison Ogden-Newton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, the organisation responsible for the awards in the UK, said: “Visiting beaches with the Blue Flag or Seaside Award status means beach-goers can feel more relaxed in a setting that is environmentally considerate.”

The 7 beaches in Sussex where you can sunbathe totally naked
There are a handful of nudist beaches scattered across Sussex that you can enjoy while stripped off

It’s not long until summer finally arrives for 2019 in Sussex.

And while it means the potential for long days out on the beach it also means nudists from all over the country could soon be getting their kit off on our beaches after the popular spots were unearthed on a website.

The site, walkingclub.org, lists dozens of nudist beaches across the country – including seven in East and West Sussex.

IRENE ON THE BRIGHTON NUDIST BEACH WITH JANE RIDLEY

There are a handful of nudist beaches scattered across Sussex that you can enjoy while stripped off.

But be warned – while some of the beaches are well established (and some of them are just for those in the know) there are often a number of local rules and regulations in place.

Prosecutors say naturists shouldn’t be targeted unless they are involved in an offence other than public nudity.

They say a balance needs to be struck between the naturist’s right to freedom of expression and the right of the wider public to be protected from harassment, alarm and distress.

Auckland nudist beach Ladies Bay set to unveil name options for historical signs

Is it a lady’s or is it for ladies – the history of an Auckland nudist beach’s names may soon be revealed for all to see.

Ladies Bay in the east Auckland suburb of St Heliers has long suffered from multiple spellings of its name – and a questionable reputation.

Now local politician Colin Davis is looking to solve the former with a new sign that spells out both of the site’s English names – and adds a Māori one.

While “Ladies Bay” is the name at present printed on an Auckland Council sign, the place has also been known as Lady’s Bay, prompting the question, who was the lady?

A local politician wants the name "Lady's Bay" and also a Māori name added to a new sign for "Ladies Bay" in St Heliers, Auckland

Davis, of the Ōrākei Local Board, citing a local historian and reports on a 1940s plan for a flying-boat passenger terminal at the bay, said she was Eliza, Lady Grey, wife of Governor Sir George Grey.

“… hence ‘Lady’s Bay’, which spelling is recorded in a local history and most often in newspapers in the late 1800s, even up to the 1940s,” Davis said in papers for this Thursday’s board meeting where he hopes to persuade colleagues to support his move.

“Sometimes, but not often, the plural spelling ‘Ladies’ – with an apostrophe – was written.”

He told the Herald that work being done, following subsidence, to build new steps down to the bay gave an opportunity to replace the current sign with one that said “Ladies Bay – Lady’s Bay”.

He wants a Māori name added too, in line with Auckland Council policy, and a separate sign explaining the history of the names.

I Have A Few Problems With Naked Beach – For One, No One Is Naked (NSFW)

The first episode of 'controversial' new reality show Naked Beach aired on Thursday night. I’ve put controversial in inverted commas because Greggs' sausage rolls have caused more fuss than this flogged-to-death format is likely to generate. So what’s it all about then? I could say it’s Love Island with love handles, Big Brother with baps, or maybe just Oglebox (apologies) but that would be doing the makers of Naked Beach a disservice because it’s actually a very serious show – nay, a noble 'quest' to make us all feel better about our bodies.


CHANNEL 4

A serious show requires serious people and that's where the fully clothed (boo!) social psychologist Dr Keon West of Goldsmiths University comes in. Dr West's genuinely interesting and insightful studies (including "Naked and Unashamed: Investigations and Applications of the Effects of Naturist Activities on Body Image, Self Esteem and Life Satisfaction") show that people’s body image, self-esteem and life satisfaction could be vastly improved by seeing more "normal, naked bodies and spending more time with our own naked bodies". Naked Beach puts this to the test with the ambitious aim to "help fix the nation’s body confidence issues".

Editor’s Note: Close encounters of the nudist kind
Hawaii's gravitation pull is felt by all surfers, even those who reject boardshorts

Shock and awe are feelings I've experienced in Hawaii many times before—usually due to the power of the waves, their proximity to the reef and how swells there are prone to doubling in size if you take your eyes off the horizon for even half a second. But this was a different kind of surprise. This was simply more nudity than I was expecting to see in a public place on a Wednesday morning. It was an otherwise serene setting in the lineup of an obscure Big Island reef. The rain had just stopped and the sun was coming through the clouds in golden columns of heavenly light. The wind had been offshore all morning and a head-high swell offered tapering rights that folded idyllically into thin-lipped barrels. There was also a rainbow, of course.

Hawaii, the spiritual home of the surfing world--and occasionally nudists.
Hawaii, the spiritual home of the surfing world–and occasionally nudists.

"This guy…" Hawaiian surfer Cliff Kapono said, signaling a disturbance in the dreamy session. On the beach, a middle-aged, Caucasian male with long, dreadlocked hair and a thick beard attached his leash to his ankle and stood proudly in the sun. He arched his back and stretched his arms wide, attempting to create the broadest surface for the morning rays to land. He smiled, eyes closed, his entire body frozen in bliss. He wasn't wearing any shorts. At first I was very confused, but then I remembered something Kapono had said days before, when we encountered a strange, shirtless guitar player in downtown Hilo. "Spiritual refugees," he called them: people who didn't feel at home where they were, so they came to Hawaii hoping to connect with the energy of the islands—or, at the very least, get rid of their tan lines.

Naked in the Canarian paradise
What do the Canary Islands have to be one of the best nudist destinations in the world? Take off your clothes and discover the pleasure of feeling the elements on the skin

David Gray says that she is a nudist from the moment her mother took off her diapers. That's more than 40 years ago. "I have lived naked almost all my life. Obviously I wear clothes when circumstances force me, but in my house I'm naked and I have fingers left over to count the times I've worn a swimsuit, "he explains. Tenerife born and Lanzarote adopted, the warm and privileged climate of the Canary Islands plays in their favor. In fact it is the climatic factor that first names when trying to explain why the archipelago is one of the main focuses of nudist tourism in Spain and Europe. In the Canary Islands the summers are pleasant and the winters are very mild. An eternal spring of sunny days, blue skies and stable temperatures, which invites you to shed your clothes and enjoy a more direct contact with nature 365 days a year.

The second key factor is "freedom" . As indicated by David Gray, president of the Naturist Association of Lanzarote , "The Canary Islands is one of the few communities that has hardly put restrictions on the practice of nudism on their coasts." Only in 4 of the 77 Canarian coastal municipalities (Tías -Lanzarote-, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tazacorte and Breña Alta -La Palma-), nudism is expressly prohibited on its beaches, which on the land means that in the Canary Islands no problem to find where to bathe or sunbathe naked. The catalog is wide and varied, from the kilometer-long beaches of white sands of Fuerteventura, where you can find, for example, the largest nudist beach in Spain, Cofete, to the beaches of the south and north of Gran Canaria, the small coves of La Gomera or some natural pools of El Hierro. "In the north of Lanzarote there is even a village, Charco del Palo , in the municipality of Haría, which is practically nudist. There are naturist lodgings and you can go without clothes down the street, "says David Gray, referring to what is considered one of the first naturist centers in the world .

Woman wants Tofino to get a nude beach
“They may enjoy a surf and then walk around naked and just be free.” A Tofino resident is laying bare her desire to see the community adopt a nude beach.

“We’ve become a major tourist destination and a nude beach is inclusive and allows people to be free while they’re on vacation and it allows people who are local to feel that they can gear down comfortably without such a moral compass on their bodies,” Rachel Sutton told the Westerly News.

Rachel Sutton looks out over Cox Bay on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. The Tofino resident and vacation rental operator is raising the idea of bringing a nude beach to the community.

“The ethos of Tofino and Ucluelet and the West Coast is fairly irreverent and we are a population who value uniqueness and doing things in a creative and spontaneous manner…They may enjoy a surf and then walk around naked and just be free.” People of all genders are permitted to be topless in B.C., but full nudity is illegal on public lands. However, the province does offer an assortment of nude beaches. NaturistDirectory.com, a website that promotes destinations to travellers looking for clothing-optional opportunities, lists Vancouver’s Wreck Beach, Nelson’s Red Sands Beach, Hornby Island’s Little Tribune Bay and Crescent Rock’s Naturalist Beach as its top four B.C. beaches.

The day Monifieth was a goose pimple away from a bare-all beach
It was the day Angus came a goose pimple away from joining the likes of St Tropez as a nudist hotspot.

The county’s chilly conditions might not make it the obvious option for unclothed capers, but Monifieth was once in the running to become the first place in Britain to open a bare-all beach. Dundee District Council received a request from the Central Council for British Naturism 40 years ago and identified an area of beach at the east end of Monifieth, next to the army camp, caravan site and golf courses.

The notion was not exactly welcomed with open arms. Monifieth West councillor Dorothy Pattullo said at the time that she wanted to give the idea the cold shoulder and described nude bathing as “socially unacceptable in this country”. She said: “I imagine the sight of people running about naked would not be very good for golfers’ handicaps.” And while she noted the potential to bring in additional tourists she warned the downsides of the idea were no laughing matter. “Monifieth has a great many elderly people who would be rightly disturbed by nude bathing at the beach,” she declared. “If the naturists want to take off their clothes it is all right with me – but not in public and certainly not in Monifieth.”

Spanish holiday islands including Ibiza and Mallorca vote in favour of protecting tradition of nude beaches
A motion to protect nudism throughout the Balearic Islands was brought to the regional parliament and was unanimously approved on Thursday

Holidaymakers jetting off to Ibiza and Mallorca can let it all hang out this summer with the popular holiday isles taking measures to protect and promote their “naturist tradition”. A motion to protect nudism throughout the Balearic Islands was brought to the regional parliament by left-wing party Podemos and was unanimously approved on Thursday by the parliament’s Commission for Social Affairs and Human Rights.

It called on regional president, Francina Armengol, to respect nudism. “The parliament of the Balearic Islands urges the government to recognise the naturist tradition of the Balearic Islands and its practice in freedom, tolerance and respect for people and the environment,” the motion read. The parliament will also urge the government to properly signpost beaches where stripping off is allowed. “It is a way of living in harmony with nature, characterised by the practice of being naked together,” it said.

Strip tease: Nudists protest apartment block to be built behind their Costa Blanca hideaway
NUDISTS are angry about an apartment block that has sprung up behind their strip of Costa Blanca beach, claiming it will subject them to voyeurs and peeping Toms.

The women’s group Aquarela, who organised a naked protest bathe last week, say they used to enjoy the seclusion offered by tamarisks and pine trees on the L’Almadrava beach in Denia to go about their hobby in peace. But now a concrete block of five floors with 68 apartments has stripped the nudists of privacy, and will bring unwarranted ‘stares’, ‘aggression’ and ‘judgements’.

“I arrived here 15 years ago. This beach has remained virgin until now and it was a joy to enjoy its tranquility,” an Aquarela member told Levante. “We have bathed naked without problems — but now we have to defend what we have done with naturalness and freedom.” The nudists say L’Almadrava has long been neglected due to its thick sand and posidonia seagrass. But it was precisely this undesirability that has kept the ‘last virgin beach’ in the comarca of Alta Marina quiet, secluded and untouched. Continued…Read full original article…

The shaken motorist managed to clamber up to some holiday flats to raise the alarm.

Witness Patricia Cannock said: “He doesn’t remember much but his face was a mess. He must have had a guardian angel looking out for him.”

Paramedics, police and more than 20 firefighters rushed to the scene.

An RNLI lifeboat crew was also scrambled to join other rescuers in case anyone else had been in the vehicle.

Nude beach flap in St. Lucie County after deputy ordered family with 5-year-old to leave

Whenever the discussion turns to nudism — ahem — I recall an episode of the old “Bob Newhart Show” where Bob is to give a lecture at what turns out to be a nudist camp. The director — buck naked — is seated behind a desk in a big leather chair.

Bob asks: “Don’t you stick to your chair?”

And speaking of sticky situations involving nudists (sorry!):

"Everybody here is really open. Nobody cares that you don't have clothes on. And it's not a pick-up scene," said Kelly Spirito, of West Palm Beach, (center) who relaxes with friends July 11, 2015, at Blind Creek Beach, a clothing-optional beach, in Fort Pierce. Many people came out to celebrate National Nude Recreation Week with a group skinny dip.

Last week, our newsroom got an interesting email from Kai Luckan of Tampa. He, his wife and their 5-year-old daughter were visiting St. Lucie County and decided to spend New Year’s Day at Blind Creek Beach.

Which, if you didn’t know, is a nude beach.

More: Don’t miss the news — subscribe to TCPalm!

Well, not officially; the county has never formally designated Blind Creek Beach as a “clothing optional” beach and there are no county signs identifying it as such. Visitors and folks from the Treasure Coast Naturists have used the beach sans “textiles” since 2014.

They tout its “family-friendly” atmosphere. Which is to say, sometimes there are nude kids on the beach, along with their parents. It’s never been a big deal.

It turned into one New Year’s Day when Luckan said his family was approached by a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy who said he’d gotten a complaint about Luckan’s daughter — and the family had to leave.

“He said it was an adult-only beach,” said Luckan. Continued…Read full original article…

Hundreds of competitors prepare to bare all for glory at annual Maslin Beach Nude Games
While hundreds of people strip off at Australia’s oldest nudist beach this weekend for the annual Maslin Beach Nude Games, a nude aficionado has said Australia’s naked history comes from much more than fleshy frivolity.

Key points:

  • The nude games will be held at Maslin Beach in South Australia
  • Hundreds of nudists will compete in a range of events, including the best bum competition
  • A nudist historian says nudism in Australia was influenced by German settlers

Instead, keen nudist historian and editor of Australia’s nudist magazine “TAN” Stuart Whelan said Australia’s fondness for nude beaches stemmed from war and German settlement.

Australian troops once used nudism to mollify “putrid, humid” conditions in the Pacific, he said.

“During the World War [II] the soldiers often bathed and swam naked,” Mr Whelan said.

“A new generation came back with this experience which they wanted to try and emulate here.”

Organisers say the event brings the whole nudist community together.

Mr Whelan said the affinity with nude swimming was “reinforced by European migration”, especially German settlers who saw nudism as more normal.

“They brought those ideas and wanted to experience them in their new country and that was the start of the [nudism] movement in Australia.”

The large migration of Germans to South Australia likely influenced the creation of some of the country’s oldest nudist clubs.

“I’m sure that was one of the things that made the establishment of the earlier clubs a lot easier,” Mr Whelan said.

“It was something wanted by the German community.” Continued…Read full original article…

Of nudists and bad spelling: Anthony Westbury recalls some of his favorite columns
After nearly three decades of prowling the newsroom and St. Lucie County streets, columnist Anthony Westbury is hanging up his notebook and retiring his ballpoint pen on Jan. 2. As he counts down the days, we’re sharing excerpts from some of his favorite columns.

Comfortable in their skin

My assignment Saturday was simple: Go to the beach and count naked people.

What could go wrong?

Well, as my colleague, Outdoors columnist Ed Killer, noted wryly, I was going to count nudists frolicking in the surf on the final day of “Shark Week” while in the shadow of a nuclear power plant.

Yep, only in Florida. Perfectly normal.

Why you should visit a nude beach this summer
Young woman who stripped naked with her friend in public says it was life-changing – and has kept going back to ‘frolic’ with strangers since

Visiting a nudist beach is something many people – prudish or otherwise – could not imagine doing.

But one young woman is urging all women to try one this summer – in order to feel more ‘liberated’.

Jessa O’Brien, 29, from the Gold Coast, recalled her first experience at a nudist beach on the Great Ocean Road in 2013 – and the joy of ‘frolicking’ naked with strangers.

Jessa explained her first trip to a nudist beach (pictured) happened five years ago, when she and some friends had visited the Great Ocean Road

‘It was nearing the end of 2013 and a group of friends and I had hired out a house along the Great Ocean Road for New Year’s Eve,’ Jessa recalled on her blog.

‘While the party house boasted an awesome pool, not being big fans of tan lines at the time, my best friend and I were looking to get away and get topless.’

Jessa said she had been sunbathing topless for around four years beforehand, but had never fully gone nude on the beach.

However, that evening on her New Year’s break, she and a couple of friends decided it was time.

‘After a walk along Southside Beach, the further down we walked, the less bikini-clad the beachgoers became,’ she recalled.

‘Destination reached! Off came the tops!’. Continued…Read full original article…

The day I was mistaken for a nudist
“Hey Tim, are there any ocean beaches near Canberra where I can legally swim naked?” audaciously asked an email from ‘‘Celeste’’ that lobbed into my inbox a few weeks ago.

As someone who prefers a ‘togs-on’ patch of sand on which to spread my towel, I was somewhat taken aback by the next line of Celeste’s request which read, “Someone told me, you’d be just the man to know!”

After a flurry of subsequent email exchanges, it turns out my curious correspondent confused your Akubra-clad columnist’s vocation of a naturalist (one who studies nature) with that of a naturist (basically, another term for a nudist).

What’s more, after a bit of digging, due to similar spelling of the two terms, apparently Celeste isn’t the first to make the error. In fact, some nature-based businesses have felt compelled to inform their potential customers of the crucial difference.

Take for example Aurora Expeditions who entice nature-lovers on adventure cruises to showcase the natural wonders of Antarctica and beyond. Continued…Read full original article…

‘Totally gutted’: Locals angry as nude beach in Australia set to stay

A councillor in Australia wants the local New South Wales government to intervene after the council voted to keep a remote Byron Bay beach optional of clothing.

Councillor Paul Spooner said the decision to keep the clothing optional declaration at Tyagarah Beach showed the council was “not listening” to locals.

Locals protested outside Byron Shire Council for the clothing optional declaration removed from Tyagarah Beach.

“They are elected as representatives for the residents and it’s clear to me that the residents of that community do not want a nude beach anymore,” he said.

Tyagarah Beach was officially made clothing optional 20 years ago after locals petitioned for a legal nude beach, and has been enjoyed by people keen for a skippy dip since then. Continued…Read full original article…

No male nudity on beaches please: Karnataka Women’s Commission Chief writes to CM
In her letter, Nagalakshmi Bai told the CM that male nudity on the beach was a threat to the safety of women and also posed a security threat.

The Chairperson of Karnataka’s Women’s Commission NG Nagalakshmi Bai, in a letter to the state’s Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, has come up with an unusual request – a dress code for men on beaches.

Nagalakshmi’s letter was prompted by the sight of nude men she saw at Gokarna Beach earlier this month when she was there for a holiday.

“I was in Gokarna three weeks ago and observed men walking around the beach nude. They should wear at least a little bit of clothing to cover themselves up,” she said, speaking to TNM.

In her letter, Nagalakshmi told the CM that male nudity on the beach “is not only posing a threat to the safety of women and children but also a security threat (sic)”.

She called for more police personnel to be posted on beaches for security reasons. “There are many women and children, including young women who are selling items in the beach, who are affected by this. There have been accusations of sexual assault against them,” she said. Continued…Read full original article…

Plans for Ireland’s first official nudist beach given bum’s rush following objections from residents
Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council was about to erect public notices at Hawk Cliff in Dalkey to warn people of potential nude bathers

Plans for Ireland’s first official naturist-friendly beach have been given the bum’s rush following objections from residents, we have now learned.

Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council was about to erect public notices at Hawk Cliff in Dalkey, Co Dublin, to warn others about seeing bathers in the buff.

There had been plans to make the area naturist-friendly

But our revelations led to a flurry of complaints including a petition signed by 33 locals opposed to the becoming a “Nudist Friendly Area”.

As a result, the plans have now stalled as officials wish to get the views of councillors “before any further action”.

Irish Naturist Association chief Pat Gallagher had hailed the move as a “milestone for Ireland”, saying: “Every other country in Europe has these kind of signs.”

The signage — to forewarn about seeing punters wandering about starkers — came as a shock to the community who were not informed of the move. Continued…Read full original article…

Skin cancer is more common among men ‘because they avoid sun cream’ as death rates have jumped by 70% over the last three decades
Australia has the highest melanoma deaths – it kills 8.3 people per every 100,000
Slovakia and Slovenia are placed second and third, while the UK ranks 15th
Rates are up in all but one of 33 wealthy countries around the world studied

Skin cancer death rates have soared in wealthy countries across the world over the last three decades, research shows.

Rates of melanoma – the deadliest form of the disease – have risen for men in all but one of 33 countries studied since 1985.

Skin cancer rates and higher and rising faster among men, who experts say are more likely to die from the disease because they're less likely to wear sun cream and protect themselves
Skin cancer rates and higher and rising faster among men, who experts say are more likely to die from the disease because they’re less likely to wear sun cream and protect themselves

Australia has the worst relationship with the cancer, with 8.3 deaths from it per every 100,000 people, followed by Slovakia and Slovenia. The UK ranks 15th with 4.2.

And the rates are worse, sometimes more than twice as bad, among men – in Britain and Spain 70 per cent more men are dying of skin cancer than 30 years ago.

Experts say this could be because men are less likely to use sun cream or protect themselves properly from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Continued…Read full original article…

WATCH: How I punched shark to escape attack at nudist beach

Sydney – A surfer who got bitten by a shark at an Australian nudist beach managed to make his break for freedom after punching the creature until it let him go, he said Saturday.

Paul Kenny was riding the waves off Samurai Beach, a naturist spot 200 kilometres (125 miles) north of Sydney, when he accidentally clashed heads with the toothsome fish, reportedly a wobbegong or a bull shark.

“As soon as I did that he latched onto my arm and all I could do was punch it until it let go,” Kenny, 50, told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.

“When I let go of it I saw its dorsal fin one metre away. I walked backwards as quick as I could and caught whatever wave I could.” Continued…Read full original article…

From wartime defence to naturism battleground
From the first line of defence against a potential German invasion to becoming a more recent battleground over whether naturism should be allowed; it is fair to say Fraisthorpe Beach, near Bridlington, has a fascinating past.

Pillboxes were built along the East Coast in a bid to prevent enemy forces landing during both world wars, with the concrete blocks arranged to prevent tanks leaving the beach and restricting their movement on it.

While coastal erosion means the front line defence at Fraisthorpe have disappeared, the rear line remains intact to this day.

Gary Longbottom

Fortunately the defences
were never required in
wartime and in recent years
the beach has become more widely associated with a much less serious spat over the practice of naturism.

In 1980, the beach was designated as a naturist area
but after concerns about
acts of indecency during
the 1990s, the designation
was rescinded by the local authority.

Years of rows between naturists and the authorities followed and in 2003, a police helicopter was called out to tannoy nudists to tell them to put their clothes back on following a complaint from a member of the public. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudists get reprieve as popular beach near Byron Bay has its optional-clothing rule renewed despite complaints about ‘lewd behaviour’
A popular nudist beach has only just held onto its ‘clothing optional’ rule today Byron Bay council staff attempted to revoke rule after ‘lewd behaviour’ reports.
A busier beach was set to replace as there would be more ‘passive witnesses’

Nudists are rejoicing after a popular beach had its ‘optional-clothing’ rule extended today despite strong opposition by some councillors and residents.

Byron Bay’s council staff had recommended Tyagarah Beach’s nude bathing option be revoked amid reports of ‘lewd sexual behaviour’.

'The idea that children can’t walk from Tyagarah to Main Beach and feel safe is obviously pretty concerning,’ Councillor Michael Lyon for the Greens said, revealing that the beach's remoteness made it more likely for 'lewd sexual behaviour' to occur

However the motion to enforce clothing was opposed and the beach will continue to welcome naked swimmers and sunbathers.

Council agreed to maintain the status quo but ordered a review of the position on a monthly basis for the next six months.

The council also discussed further key actions which could prevent future incidents which included the introduction of security cameras. Continued…Read full original article…

From here to eternity
Europeans are pretty blasé when it comes to nudity.

Although we hate to admit it, modern Indian culture is for the most part, sexually immature. Nudity is closely associated with shame and skeptics are referred to Dr David Dhawan (full time movie director and part time psychologist) who will set them straight on izzat and nanga panga. Why just last week in Goa, we were treated to the spectacle of five gents from Tirunelveli ogling two hapless aunties chastely clad in saris who were disporting themselves in the hotel swimming pool. The situation was rendered even more piquant by the fact that the hotel staff were remonstrating with the ladies that they were inappropriately dressed; the watchmen (pun intended) were having none of it. “They are enjoying, I say, why you are giving trouble, aaanh? Po da.”

Chanda Kocchar

Reading Manoj Das’s short story, “The Naked”, which deals with the travails of, Nathu, an old family retainer requisitioned by the erstwhile Maharani to provide hospitality to a group of visiting European nudists at her crumbling ancestral home, brought back memories of a visit to the Costa Brava many moons ago.

Europeans are pretty blasé when it comes to nudity. Swedes majestically divest themselves of all clothing including bathrobe en route to a sauna, Germans believe a coat of sun-tan lotion is all the protection they need from the elements while the French make Adam and Eve (Saint Laurent) look over-dressed. Indians, on the other hand, tend to giggle helplessly when it comes to revealing what my friend Raymond referred to as “wedding tackle” or when sufficiently spiritually inspired as “yer family jewels, men.” Grizzled grandfathers go through paroxysms of embarrassment in changing rooms performing the shimmy shimmy shake with a towel draped around their nether regions.

Places to Get Naked: Tyagarah Beach

Last week a group of GNA beach goers were lucky enough to visit Tyagarah Beach in the Byron Shire. Tyagarah Beach is located at the end of Greys Lane and is a beautiful, vast stretch of coastline in which people can freely sunbake and swim as nature intended. There is a designated “nude bathing area” as the aggressively informative sign indicates.

We swam, sunbaked and of course grabbed a cheeky photo for the gram and had a great experience here. It was a nice change from the condensed Sydney Beaches to experience the openness of the beach as well as swim in the surf and catch some waves. Overall it was a great day and we are all eager to return! Continued…Read full original article…

While the bride wore a flowing veil and the groom sported a dapper bow tie, the professional couple ditched the traditional outfits altogether.

The ceremony took place by the turquoise ocean on the Italian island of Sardinia on July 18 this year, and the couple was even pronounced husband and wife by a naked celebrant.

Typical wedding clothes would never have suited the Romanian naturists, with Anca insisting: “It was so wonderful standing there, in such an idyllic setting with my husband, naked.” Continued…Read full original article…

Yes to nudity, no to nails: Tauranga Council unveils beach bylaws

Tauranga City Council won’t be policing nude sunbathers any time soon, but if you want to use an old pallet for a beach bonfire, think again.

The council has updated its Beaches Bylaw, a set of rules for what people can and can’t do on the city’s world-famous beaches, for the first time since 2007.

The law changes also include the use of drones on the beaches.

Councillor Leeanne Brown said the council had tried to strike the right balance with the bylaw.

“We’re not trying to be the fun police, we just want to make a better environment for everybody.”

The updated bylaw included new rules for vehicles, longlines, fires, drones and structures on the beach.

Not included were any restrictions on nudity on the beach, which in circumstances that constituted “lewd behaviour” was a matter for the police. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudism and monarchy
It happens that on traditionally nudist beaches, where their presence was always allowed, textiles now seem to be overwhelmingly major, as in heroic times.

On August 16, 1984, 34 years ago, a parish priest led a group of residents of Cangas de Morrazo who, with sticks and stakes, threatened some nudists camped near the beach of Barra , while the municipal police dismantled their tents and the Civil Guard was there. In Orwellian 1984, nudism had been practiced for 15 years on the beach of Barra and had recently been authorized by the competent Civil Government, that of Pontevedra.

The story of the affair made by El País named a priest from another town, not the one who actually participated. The newspaper publicly rectified that error as soon as it had news (in the Sunday edition, circulation much higher than the other days of the week), but the priest mentioned in the first information sued the journalist María José Porteiro and the publishing company of El País by intrusion in his honor.

Nude Not Lewd rally a cold clothes option

The protestors are adamant about everyone being able to enjoy the beach in a safe community environment. Continued…Read full original article…

My first time

In 1978 on my first holiday in Greece I paid a short visit to the island of Mykonos. Walking around the harbour I saw a notice: “Bathing costumes must be worn at all times. By order of the Mayor.” Was there some danger of freak waves that the Mayor was so anxious for us? Then I realised that what the Mayor must mean was that bathing costumes were the minimum required. From which it followed that people had been known to wear less. From which it followed that nudists actually existed in the contemporary world and not just in jokes about “nudist colonies”. If I had ventured to one of the beaches away from the town I would no doubt have encountered some, but of course I was ignorant of this.

A couple of years later in Karpathos I met an Irish couple who had been to a beach in Crete where people were apt to sunbathe naked. Every day there was a police raid. And before the strenuous walk down the beach the police of course needed to take a coffee at the beach bar. So the proprietor could send someone down the beach with the message that the police were on their way. And the police could truthfully report to their superiors: “We inspect this beach every day and there is never anybody naked on it.”

I had never understood the need to cover up and liked the idea of nudity when it was warm enough, and had occasionally sunbathed naked in a place where I could be sure of not being observed. So I was interested, you might say. But I wasn’t sure that I would be able to take off my clothes in front of a crowd of people. Then in 1984 when I visited the island of Naxos I found that one of the trips advertised by boatmen from the town harbour was a trip to “Aghia Anna Nudist Beach”. Now what was this? Of course at this time there was no Internet, and such things were not mentioned in newspapers or guidebooks. And who could I ask without embarrassment? A Nudist Beach sounded a very organised affair. I had visions of some sort of invigilator greeting me when I got off the boat and demanding that I take off my clothes there and then. Would I be able to? Continued…Read full original article…

Cows permitted to bathe at Swedish nudist beach
Nudist bathers in Småland, southern Sweden, complained to the municipality after they found themselves sharing their local swimming spot with local cows.

But the cattle have just as much right to be there as the human visitors, staff at Växjö municipality’s culture and leisure department decided.

Nudists who use the dedicated beach and swimming spot at Stora Pene, Växjö, had complained that the animals’ presence was unhygienic and could pose a health risk.

The municipality cited Sweden’s extreme heat over recent months as one of the reasons landowners needed to be able to bring cows and other animals to the beach in order to cool down.

Sweden’s summer heatwave and prolonged drought has seen farmers across Sweden struggle to find food for their livestock, with some forced to send animals to slaughter early as a result. Continued…Read full original article…

Pero aunque no lo creas, las playas nudistas también tienen sus reglas y hay que respetarlas para que los demás no se sientan incómodos u ofendidos.

Desnudarte de golpe

200 naked people vs the police: The battle to be nude on East Yorkshire beach
Fraisthorpe beach near Bridlington has long been associated with naturism

Despite being one of the East Yorkshire coast’s most popular picturesque beaches telling someone you are heading to Fraisthorpe will still produces a wry smile.

Today the beach is full of families and you can even enjoy a drink in the new Cow Shed Café.
