Wimborne Sun Club

Wimborne Sun Club Swim
Wimborne Sun Club Swim

Wimborne Sun Club is the long-established naturist club for Bournemouth, Poole and surrounding area (member club of British Naturism)

You are invited to join us as a visitor and then hopefully as a member. You can come along up to four times a year as a guest but after that you have to apply for membership.

The club operates on the tradition of voluntary service. It keeps costs down and pass that on to you. So to swim and socialise without any clothes does not cost appreciably more than any other activity.

Naturism  is a wholesome activity, not to be confused with “swinging”, nor is it a dating opportunity. You are expected to behave appropriately and to join in with the convivial atmosphere. Anyone who can accept this is welcome.

You can just turn up at our Wimborne swims but please bring some ID with you the first time.

Yorkshire England Naturist Club (in Spanish)

Hidden behind the north of Bransholme in England It is a world that few of us are aware of. A place where people are naked.

The Yorkshire Sun Society is one of the oldest naturist clubs in the country and was built in 1932. It is not the easiest place to reach and I had to go through a door and a track before coming through a green iron gate imposing

I was greeted by Chris Thomas, fully dressed, opened the doors and welcomed me. The company effectively operates a holiday camp on 26 acres of idyllic forest, even during the rainy season.

He welcomed me into the club for a naked Sue Binns and, I admit, was disarmed slightly. However, to Sue and the other members, it is so natural that in a short time I was used to being in a room with tea and cookies with a group of naked people.

“People come from all over the place for a vacation here,” said Sue. “There are very few from West Yorkshire, although there are some local people. We actually changed Kingston upon Hull to be closer to here. ”

“We had children of members who grow up coming here and now bring their children. Earth has to be maintained throughout the year, but that mostly spent summers and weekends here. ”

Eastbourne Naturist Swim Club and ‘The Renaissance Nude’
I happened to see an article online about Paris naturists arranging a visit to a modern art gallery – the Palais de Tokyo. It made the news not the least because 30,000 people wanted to get tickets to be naked in the art gallery. Although this was a private event and only 161 people were able to attend it was notable for being so newsworthy.

A friend of mine suggested we try the Royal Academy and specifically the exhibition ‘The Renaissance Nude’. I wasn’t sure this would have great appeal and I thought that pictures that were 500 years old might be difficult to relate to. After all many naturists believe that staring at others (dressed or not) is rude and we engage in eye to eye contact much more that non-naturists and that gives new naturists a comforting experience as they are given the confidence that people are interested in their personalities rather than their looks.

So actually we are viewing the pictures, much as a non-naturist might, to find out what people really look like, except that we know when we see an idealised representation that is unrealistic. This period from around 1400 turns out to be very interesting and the reasons for painting nudes then was often quite different from the current, often commercial, standpoint.

I wrote to them and a group visit was quite easily arranged, although we would be segregated as usual from the public having to attend after normal opening hours. The Royal Academy provided online ticket arrangements and organised a low key media release.

62 naturists visited and we were provided with a room to undress, the cloakroom stayed open, a photographer from Getty Images made some pictures and we all proceeded naked up the grand staircase and then up some glass stairs to the top gallery. Here we had the exhibition to ourselves for two hours. We were able to purchase audio guides and the main shop stayed open. There are also quite a few free galleries available to see and although there were several members of staff in the building who were not officiating with us, there were no signs of awkwardness. The staff who looked after us were very welcoming and at ease. Any trepidation that there might have been from the RA’s very first naturist visit soon evaporated and by the end we were discussing a repeat visit and we are keen to do so.

Mountain Air Ranch Lays Bare the Benefits, Challenges of a Nudism Club

Chuck’s parents weren’t sure how to introduce him and his younger brother to their lifestyle choice. But as the boys got older, they decided it was time to take them to Mountain Air Ranch, Colorado’s family-friendly nudist club that was then almost thirty years old.

“Everybody thinks that seeing your mom and dad naked for the first time is a total shock. For a twelve-year-old kid, maybe,” says Chuck, recalling his first visit to the club in 1962. “But I love this place. It either works for you or it doesn’t.” And it works for Chuck, who’s considered the ranch his home away from home since he returned from serving in the Vietnam War. (He, like many regulars at Mountain Air Ranch, gave only his first name for this piece.) Continued…Read full original article…

A regular at one of Britain’s oldest naturist clubs has revealed what action could see people asked to leave and what activities are available inside the camp

A nudist has revealed the one thing that will get people thrown out of one of Britain’s oldest naturist clubs.

Mo Thomas, a regular at the Yorkshire Sun Society, says the club doesn’t have many rules but anyone who gets “sexually stimulated” is asked to leave.

“We will give them a period to cool off but otherwise they have to go,” Mo said.

The naturist club in Hull is one of the oldest in the country after it was established in 1932.

It effectively runs a holiday camp for its naked members set in 26 acres of idyllic woodland, the Hull Daily Mail reports. Continued…Read full original article…
