Nearly 200 skinny dippers braved chilly sea temperatures as they stripped off and bared all for charity.
The event, in aid of the mental health charity Mind, was held at Summerleaze Beach in Bude on Sunday morning.
Organiser Ruth Hunt was inspired by the work of the North East skinny dip – an established annual event now in its seventh year which has raised over £40,000 for Mind.
Teacher Ruth said she spends time simply listening to children who come to her with their troubles and sees first-hand how the pressures of modern day life are affecting the well-being of children and young people as well as adults.
Contrary to popular belief, Mother’s Day was not invented by a worldwide conspiracy of florists and confectioners. It grew from the desire of one Anna Jarvis to honour the memory of her own mother, and was first celebrated in 1908 although it was not proclaimed an American national holiday until 1914, thereafter spreading around the world to be celebrated generally on the second Sunday in May.
World Naked Gardening Day, on the other hand, is celebrated on the first Saturday of May and is the creation (naturally) of two men, Mark Storey and Jacob Gabriel, who founded the Body Freedom Collaborative in 2005 to promote a day for gardening au naturel. Boys will be boys, but this intended prank took off when it was endorsed by various nudist organizations. This year we evidently celebrated the fourteenth annual Naked Gardening Day. I am tempted to assume that it is being secretly promoted by sunscreen and insect repellent producers.
Some of us were privileged to attend a private viewing of an exhibition, The Renaissance Nude organised by the J Paul Getty Museum in association with the Royal Academy of Arts. The latter housed the chosen works of Renaissance masters (and mistresses) within its Burlington House headquarters in London. But there was a difference; everyone who attended the exhibition were themselves naked.
I have visited the RA in London many times over the last 35 years: but usually to attend their Summer Exhibition. This annual event has been one of the highlights of the artistic year in England now for over 250 years. The grand courtyard entrance, marble foyer and steps to the galleries are as familiar as my own home, but then step into that space without clothing then the feeling is unsettling and dreamlike. Yes, indeed, it was like that anxiety dream we all have.
My fellow Naturists drifted up the steps, past the friendly but nevertheless frozen faced security staff on our way to the main gallery. As we entered the subdued lighted rooms, the purpose of our visit began. Which was what exactly?
On the surface, it must have seemed like a bit of a wheeze for the gallery. “Let’s put on a show about how nudes were portrayed in the 15th and 16th Centuries and then get a bunch of 21st Century nude people to look at the art works.” And for the Naturists themselves? Well, any opportunity to get naked and promote naturism as a reasonable and mainstream activity is always welcomed. But then we have the obvious problem: what connection is there really between the two? It might just as well have been an exhibition of steam engines. We might all have been dressed as Firemen.
Some years ago you could barely, (no pun intended) watch a sporting event without seeing a streaker and the Crucible was no exception. Where have they all gone?
One of the most prolific streakers of all time Mark Roberts made two appearances at the World Snooker Finals at the Crucible, once at the Graham Dott and Ronnie O’Sullivan game in 2004, and again in 2008 when Ali Carter played Ronnie.
After a few good years of notoriety, during which he was banned from every football ground in the UK, he hung up his boots which were often the only things he wore!
Streakers apart, people do love to take off their clothes, with nudism and naturism definitely alive and well. And it can be closer than you think!
A farm in Doncaster is holding the annual ‘Nudestock’ event in May which is certified by the British Camping and Caravanning Club. However, the week-long event is well managed, doesn’t hurt anyone or cause any trouble with local people, and really if that’s what floats your boat! The theme this year is ‘Space’ to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lunar Landing, although I seem to remember the astronauts wearing quite a lot on the way of protective clothing, which would have been quite useful given that one of the sporting activities is darts! Ouch!
It is a chance for naturists to socialise with other like-minded people and is a real family affair. Other activities include yoga, body painting and Scottish dancing and there is live entertainment.
In ancient times, even before the classical era, for example, during the Cretan Minoan civilization, athletic exercise was an important part of everyday life. In fact, the Greeks credited several mythological figures with athletic achievements, and the male gods (especially Apollo and Heracles , sponsors of the sport) were commonly represented as athletes. While Greek sculpture often showed men completely naked, a new concept appeared for women, "venus pudica" (or partially nude), see " Nike of Samothrace ".
Nudity in sports was very common, with almost all sports performed naked. As a tradition it was probably introduced for the first time in the city-state of Sparta, during the late archaic period.
The civilization of ancient Greece (Hellas), during the archaic period, had an athletic and cultic aesthetic of nudity that typically included adult men and adolescents, but sometimes also children, women and girls. The love for beauty also included the human body, beyond love for nature, philosophy, the arts, etc. The Greek word gym means " a place to train naked ." Male athletes competed naked, but most of the city-states of the time did not allow female participants or even spectators at those events, with Sparta being a notable exception.
The origins of nudity in ancient Greek sports are the subject of a legend about the athlete Orsipo de Megara . There are several myths regarding these origins; in one, Orsipo loses his clothes during the race for the stadium of the XV Olympic Games in 720 BC, which gives him an advantage and wins. Other athletes emulate it and fashion is born.

Naked in the city Naked in public, supposedly can be seen as an act of madness, free, a disdain of decency.
But for the lenses of artists like Spencer Tunick , Pablo Saborido and Erica Simone (in the photograph above), however, the attitude gains new meanings: stripping naked in the urban space can also be a way to strip the urban space itself.
The king paraded in his carriage, showing the population his new and magnificent visible clothing, according to the supposed tailors who produced it, only for the most intelligent people. And all those who attended the stop, elegant as they were, made a point of praising the fabric, the cut, the colors of the clothing of the clothes except a child who, noticing the obvious and screaming , the king is naked! He made the people understand what he was actually seeing: a naked king.
For different reasons - social, political, cultural, economic - the distinction between what is public and what is private becomes increasingly complicated. Few people know, today, what belongs to each other's terrain. At the same time cause, consequence and "solution" of urban conflicts, the construction of closed shopping centers and condominiums, for example, ended up transforming the city into a place full of walls and surveillance cameras and empty of encounters and visibility. We are so locked in ourselves that others or the other are somewhat invisible in our day to day.
And it is precisely the meeting or the direct contact, without any barrier between men and women of the city that the American Spencer Tunick promotes by registering crowds of naked people in various parts of the world.
Spencer Tunick in Valencia – April 2019 I have taken part in Spencer Tunick’s art installations before & I love both the experience & the resulting art, so when I heard he was coming to Valencia I didn’t hesitate to book some cheap Ryanair flights direct from my home in Ireland.
Through previous installations and the Spencer Valencia dedicated Facebook page I met with some friends old & new including two other friends from Ireland for a meal the night before. There was a real international flavor to our group with people from Russia, Norway, the Netherlands, the UK, Brazil & Ireland all having a good time with no politics at all. There was much speculation about what Spencer had planned and several of us had spotted a few cherry pickers (raised platforms) around the city but as usual none of us really knew what Spencer had planned.
The morning of the installation we met in Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània Carrer Museu, a museum in the centre of Valencia at 5 am. We gathered outside and the air of anticipation was palpable and even for people like me who’d taken part before it was hard to resist being swept up in the buzz. There was much nervous chatter and introductions, I got chatting to a Spanish girl who was alone so I introduced her to my friends so she felt part of a group.
Finally the door opened to the museum & we were filtered through a small entrance way where we had to hand in our model release forms before proceeding into a large courtyard with a walkway around it; here the men & women were separated with the men being brought into a second separate courtyard with a similar walkway around, there was more waiting and nervous chatter.
After a relatively short wait Spencer came in and with the help of a male & female model Spencer demonstrated the poses he wanted us to do during the various installations he had in mind.
NAUGHTY nudists tucked into a fish-and-chip supper on a naked canal cruise last night.
The 40 naturists looked in ship shape as they streaked down the Shropshire Union Canal in Stafford, Shrops on a steamed-up barge.
British Naturism members flaunted their figures as they scoffed fried fish from paper bags throughout the evening.
Organiser John Rodgers confirmed there was a strict no-clothes rule on board the canal boat.
He said: “A naturist environment inspires freedom, body positivity and has been proven to make people happier, improving mental health and wellbeing.
“It is a positive family lifestyle.”
Dine Naked is an organisation hosting naked dining events in Bristol, but now it is coming to the Isle of Wight.
The three-course naked banquet is taking place in the function room at the Castle Inn on Saturday, April 20 at 7.30pm.
A spokesperson for the event said: "All Dine Naked events involve non-sexual nudity, and are only for people aged 18+.
"Being naked in a safe, friendly environment can be a really positive, life-affirming experience.
"The only people who'll see you will be other naked diners and the restaurant staff.
"The windows will be curtained, so nobody will be able to see in.
"Wear sandals, slippers or flip flops — but the point of Dine Naked is to be naked, so please don't wear anything else.
"Arrive normally dressed. We'll welcome you and explain things, then you can find a seat and get undressed."
The lively procession began at noon at the Jane Warner Plaza in Castro and continued to Haight and Stanyan in Golden Gate Park.
Many held signs with messages supporting nudism such as "Born this way" and "Freedom of choice."
Parade organizer and nudist activist Gypsy Taub shouted out over a megaphone: "Don't believe the lie. Your body is beautiful," and "It doesn't matter what size or shape your body is, it doesn't matter what age or gender. Your body was made by God, and God doesn't make mistakes."
Along the route, people stood on the sidelines snapping photos on their phones.

A nude family swim session at Blackpool’s Sandcastle Waterpark has attracted a backlash from campaigners who say children should not be allowed at the event.
We revealed how the skinny dipping event is taking place this weekend and open to adults and kids of all ages.
Organised by British Naturism, visitors will be ditching their costumes and trunks to ride the water slides and wave machines in nothing but their birthday suits.
It’s the group’s tenth year at the Sandcastle, where they’re expecting around 300 visitors this Saturday evening, but not everyone is happy with the event.
An online petition has been launched by Emma Hadaway, from Crewe, who says: “I truly believe this is a massive safeguarding issue, children being naked around adults neither their parents or themselves know.”
She adds: “It may be a private event but children should be protected no matter what and should not be allowed at such events. The solution to this would be either to make it an 18s and over only event or to not allow the event to happen full stop.
“The lady sat next to me was knitting a scarf, naked, except for flip flops and the guy on the other side was reading the newspaper, totally nude,” says Jane Baker, describing a scene of apparent domestic bliss. Jane, 52, who has been part of the naturist community for over two years, is one of a growing number of Britons who have taken to a starker way of life.
Indeed it seems nudity is having something of a moment, with British Naturism, the UK’s official organisation, noting a sudden increase in membership for the first time in 15 years. With 8,900 members – up from 8,300 last year – we appear to be edging towards the ‘nude not crude’ way of thinking.
More of us are waving goodbye to textile environments—the term used to describe our restrictive, clothed world by those in the know—and embracing our natural state. Continued…Read full original article…
For nudist clubs in the Puget Sound region, Halloween marks the end of an active summer season. From painting their bodies to adding masks or capes, nudists try to incorporate humor and creativity into their costumes.
“I was a treasure troll last year, so I wore a red wig and had a blinky thing in my belly button,” said Dawnzella Gearhart, 56, a member and spokeswoman for the Tiger Mountain Family Nudist Park in Issaquah. “One year, I was Miss Piggy and all I had on was a blonde wig, feather boa, high heels, tail and a snout.”
Puget Sound nudists are holding their celebrations this year amid declining membership in nudist clubs nationally, according to the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). Fewer people have been joining the clubs over the past decade because nudism is mainly popular with generations that are aging and has failed to gain traction with millennials, according to AANR spokeswoman Mary Kolassa. The group serves about 30,000 members in the U.S. at 180 affiliated clubs and resorts.
Tiger Mountain, formally known as Fraternity Snoqualmie, first opened in 1945. Gearhart said the park has around 250 members, but was home to as many as 500 in the early 2000s. Club membership was especially hard hit following the 2008 recession, when people cut non-essential spending, she said. Continued…Read full original article…
Seeing the Naked Truth nude tour advertised I thought ‘how often do you get the chance to be naked in an art gallery”. Arriving at the Crawford 20 minutes early I meet Leticia. I knew she was with the nude group as I saw her Irish Naturist Association hat on. I introduced myself and she made me feel welcome. Seeing my name on her list made me realise I was really doing this. Thinking I needed a rum and coke I went into Cashmans pub next to the Crawford Art Gallery. I got back to the gallery when all the textiles were leaving. (I got the lingo now). I must have walked with confidence as the door man gave me a nod and said ‘you must be with the group’. I felt proud nodding back saying that I was.
I have never got naked in public before never mind in an art gallery with a hundred other strangers. Everyone was chit chatting. We were brought up stairs to wait where I walked from painting to painting trying to figure out was there anyone else on their own. We were brought into a beautiful room which I think was the library. I sat on a seat. This man sat next to me and we started chatting , he was on his own too. Then another women sat next to him. I asked her was she on her own. She was, so the three of us kept each other company. I told them it was my first time doing something like this. A man spoke about a charity close to his heart which I think was a cancer charity called ‘bare to care’. When he finished talking I glanced around and saw some people were naked already. I took my shoes and socks off while still chatting to the man and women. The three of us agreed it was time to undress too. Trousers next, then knickers, then the long top and the last was the bra undone. I stood there naked and said, “well that’s it, it’s my first time”. Another man walked past and shook my hand for my bravery and said “well done”. Continued…Read full original article…
Despite some nippy weather, members of a Wellington naturist club have taken part in New Zealand’s first ever National Nude Gardening Day.
The Naturist Federation celebrated 60 years of baring all this year, and now boasts 1600 members.
Brent Henderson hopes National Nude Gardening Day, which was celebrated on Saturday, will help grow that number.
“It’s like a country club, that all you have to do is take your clothes off,” he said. “The old world was the old nudist colony and everyone thought we were all weird. Now we’re trying to come out into the world a lot more, to say, what’s the big deal?” Continued…Read full original article…
During our last days in Canada, the clear blue sky started to look more like a pattern of fifty shades of grey (pun intended). When eventually there were more days when we preferred a good jacket over our naked skin, we knew it was time to go. The Canadians tried to convince us that an Indian summer, when temperatures would rise again, would definitely be coming, our minds were already made up. We had something else to look forward to, we were planning to experience the end of the European season at a place which is still considered the mecca of naturism: The south of France.
It may seem like a big leap to move all the way from Canada to France just for a couple of weeks of sunshine, but for us it would also be a possibility to make a short stop in Belgium afterwards to visit our friends and family who we haven’t seen for more than a year by now. And to be honest… How can we keep telling people that we’re a genuine naturist travel blog when we haven’t written anything about France yet?
The ecological damage we’re making by crossing another ocean by airplane aside, the flight from Canada to France is not as long as one would imagine. We’ve left Montreal around midnight and seven hours later we already touched ground in Paris. Little sleep on the plane (as budget minded bloggers we always prefer price over comfort) and a six hour time difference are the perfect ingredients for a decent jetlag and the smartest thing we could have done was probably take a 15 hour nap. But hey, this is Paris! One of the world’s most magnificent cities! How could we be sleeping when we might as well… eat? Continued…Read full original article…
The UK’s official naturist organisation has seen a boost in membership for the first time in 15 years after hosting public bare all events designed to make nude lifestyles more mainstream.
British Naturism reported this week its representatives had swelled by nearly 10 per cent this year, with the increase partly credited to a shift in approach away from behind-closed-doors functions to public outings including trips to restaurants, theatres and galleries.
Naked yoga and running classes was also said to have helped encourage newcomers to the movement as well as outdoor festivals such as Nudefest and Nudestock. Continued…Read full original article…
Members of Reading Naturist Group (RNG) say they have been defeated by the ‘uncaring’ management of Reading Borough Council (RBC).
The group previously gathered at Arthur Hill Pool before the 105-year-old facility was closed in October 2016.
Meetings were moved to The Meadway Sports Centre in Tilehurst, but a hike in prices has seen a decline in the number of members.
Mark Young, a member of RNG, said: “The naturist swim would almost certainly have remained significantly better attended at The Meadway if the council had not disrupted the dynamic of the existing group by refusing to offer a swimming session on Thursday evening, the day the swim previously took place at Arthur Hill and instead insisting on the swim moving to Friday evening.
“This is even though many of the council’s own public swimming sessions in the late evening at The Meadway seemed to have a lower attendance still than the swimming session run by RNG.”
Just two weeks after the Australian golf star bared it all for ESPN’s Body Issue, an Australian nudist couple, Bruce Jensen and Julie Jarvie, hosted the first Wandering Bears Nude Golf Day at Humpty Doo Golf Club, according to Northern Territory News.
Jensen, who owns the nearby Brujul Nude Retreat, is a regular player at Humpty Doo, and realized that the relatively quiet setting would allow him to make a public course go fully-privates.
That required bending of the club’s relatively traditional dress code, which reads: “Members and visitors are required to maintain a standard of dress considered to be in keeping with both style and neatness according to the character and standing of the Club. Neat and tidy attire at all times.” Continued…Read full original article…
Summertime is prime time for a visit to Howe Caverns, the hot-weather destination in Schoharie County that has lured thousands to partake in atmospheric spelunking 15 stories underground. From impressive rock formations to other geological wonders, Howe Caverns rates as a must-see.
On Saturday, July 14, however, there will be much more to see than stalactites and stalagmites. In celebration of International Nude Day, Howe Caverns will host “Naked in a Cave,” extending an offer to nudists to spend an evening engaged in au naturel activities. Even Sarah Danser, a survivalist star of the Discovery Channel’s cultish reality series Naked and Afraid, heard about Howe’s special occasion and will travel from Honolulu to the Cobleskill area to get in on the action.
It wasn’t hard to rouse attention for this unique event. Howe general manager April Islip simply posted the news on the venue’s Facebook page at the end of April, and she’s been fielding inquiries ever since. Islip said “Naked in a Cave” is a response to requests from nudist groups for years about holding such an event amid Howe’s natural surroundings.
So how far away are people traveling for this night? “We have a couple flying in from Chicago and a couple from the Washington, D.C., area,” Islip said, “and we have a big party coming from Virginia.”
Regarding the nudist enclaves that are closer to home, Islip noted, “We have a lot from the Massachusetts-Berkshires area, there are quite a few from Troy, and a lot from Rochester are coming.” The event is “close to a sellout,” Islip said at press time, with a maximum head count of 350.

If there is any time to consider going nude in public, it’s during the sweltering Phoenix summer.
If you’re ready to or curious about baring it all, consider heading to the clothing optional resort Shangri La Ranch in New River during Nude Recreation Week, July 8-15. Hosted by the American Association for Nude Recreation and the Naturist Society, the week brings awareness to nude recreation and is celebrated at more than 200 clubs across the U.S. and Canada.
“It’s an informational week and chance to get out there and enjoy nudism as a form of wholesome, family recreation,” said Danielle Smith, who handles public relations for the resort. “We encourage people to come out and have fun, and see what it’s all about and get rid of the stigma.”
Smith encourages anyone new to nude recreation to call the resort and ask questions, or just come out and the $26 daily rate is waived for first-timers. Guests just need to bring a towel in order to sit on surfaces at the resort. Continued…Read full original article…
When: 31st July – 11th August 2018 Where: West Northwood Farm, St Neot, PL14 6QN Cost: FREE!
Bodmin Moor is now a sparsely populated wilderness, but it was once a hub of civilisation. The moors are peppered with the remains of Bronze Age life, from stone circles, to burial mounds.
But while some of the signs of a successful Bronze Age population are obvious, many of the most important clues can only be recovered through careful, archaeological excavation.
Where did people live? What did they eat? What was life really like for them? And most importantly, how do archaeologists find the answers?
A Bronze Age village has been recently discovered at West Northwood Farm, on the southern slopes of Bodmin Moor, near St Neot.
With distant views to the sea, the settlement contains at least 7 roundhouses. This year, DigVentures is leading an excavation along with St Neot Local Historians. Together, our aim is to recover traces of life from two of the round houses.
Never done archaeology before? Great! Tried it before and want to do it again? Brilliant!
Register to join the dig, and you’ll get to learn hands-on about archaeology, and help unearth the secrets of Bronze Age life, while taking part in a real excavation…
You can join the dig for a day, a weekend, the full two weeks, or any number of days in between
Everyone who takes part in the excavation will get to:
Dig alongside our friendly team of archaeologists
Learn hands-on how archaeological discoveries are made
Record any discoveries you make using our online app
Learn how to do archaeological drawings
Make a real contribution to our understanding of Bronze Age life in Cornwall!
Always wanted to try archaeology? This is your chance!
I am very late writing this but last year, on the 22/23rd September 2017, I, along with 400+ people did the annual North East Skinny Dip at Druridge Bay, England. Men and women of all ages and different shapes and sizes stripped off their clothes and ran into the freezing cold North Sea to raise money to the mental health charity, MIND and to celebrate the autumn equinox.
This was my second time taking part in the NESD, as I had done this dip in 2015. When I did the first dip, it was my first time stripping off and running naked into the sea with hundreds of people that I didn’t know. At the beginning of the event, I was so nervous about the occasion and if people would look at my body but once I got into the sea, it was fine and I found it exhilarating. It was an experience that I would never forget and something that I would have to do again in the future and maybe considering doing naturism.
Fast forward 2 years later, I am back in the campsite at Druridge Bay on the Saturday evening wearing my Irish hat and necklace, being greeted by new and familiar faces and arrive to a massive, roaring fire and people playing guitars, singing along, having a drink or two and a dance and enjoying the warm up to the event. I met numerous people from different parts of the country who arrived for the first time telling me how they heard about the event, why they wanted to do it, etc. It was very interesting hearing some of the stories that they told and how they’ve overcome adversities in their life and want to have a new experience. I felt very sympathetic hearing their stories and although they were very nervous as first timers, I was able to share my experience of the event and told them that “once you do it, you will be back here again.” Continued…Read full original article…
With the air temperature hovering around 7 degrees Celsius, a record number of participants arrived in the dark to don red swimming caps supplied by organisers and steel themselves for the event, held annually as part of the Museum of Old and New Art’s (MONA) festival of the bizarre.
The stampede began at 7:42am, with waves of bodies throwing off the towels and heading towards the River Derwent, where a relatively tropical water temperature of around 14C awaited.
In 2017, just over 1,000 people registered for the event, catching out organisers who had factored in a number of no-shows — resulting in too many bums and not enough towels.
This year more than 2,200 signed up, with Dark Mofo learning the lesson of 2017, with plenty of linen on hand this morning at Long Beach, in Sandy Bay. Continued…Read full original article…
For the first time, visitors will be welcomed by naturist islanders in Loch Lomond on Doors Open Day when famous and historic buildings reveal their secrets.
The Scottish Outdoor Club, based on the loch’s Inchmurrin Island is celebrating its 80th anniversary and is offering curious members of the public an opportunity to look around the 11-acre site in an attempt to attract new members.
Teena Gould, the social convener of the club, said the organisation was delighted to be included in the event after being approved last week.
She said: “We are over the moon that a few ramshackle huts in Loch Lomond has joined an illustrious list of cathedrals and city halls that will be open to the public for free.
“At first it was a bit of a pipe dream but when I started to look at the criteria, I was convinced we were suited.
If you’re a fan of shedding your clothes, you may be interested to learn that a giant picnic will be held in a public park in Paris to celebrate the inaugural Journée Parisienne du Naturisme (Parisian Day of Naturism). The event will take place on 24 June at the naturist area of the Bois de Vincennes, east of the French capital.
The event is being run by the ANP L’Association des Naturistes de Paris and the plan is that it will be held in future on the last Sunday of June annually. This year, a yoga class will be held at 11.30am followed by the picnic, and the event itself runs from 10am to 6pm. The naturist area at the park opened for two months in 2017, and has re-opened for six months this year, forming part of the city’s “open-minded vision for the use of Parisian public spaces.” The zone is open between 8am and 7.30pm near the park’s bird reserve until October.

IRISH nudists plan to kick BUTT this morning for World No Tobacco Day.
Birthday suit buffs, who recently celebrated the awarding of a skinny dip spot, will gather on a beach near Brittas, Co Wicklow, to fight the fag-ends problem.
It comes as the Irish Naturists Association prepares to celebrate Ireland’s first ever flesh-friendly dip site.
Earlier this year, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council agreed to erect public notices at Hawk Cliff in Dalkey, south Co Dublin, warning others about bare-cheeked bathers.
We revealed the move followed law changes which mean naked swimmers are doing nothing illegal. And ahead of the official unveiling of the signs, naturists want to attack the rubbish issue. Continued…Read full original article…
Ayer leyendo noticias en un periódico digital leí una noticia sobre la World Naked Bike Ride, una prueba de cicloturismo que consiste en ir en bolas y en bici, y me hizo recordar las veces que he pensado que el deporte nudista no tiene sentido.
Estoy de acuerdo con la libertad de expresión, de acuerdo con el nudismo, totalmente a favor que cada uno haga lo que quiera con su cuerpo, lo que le apetezca siempre que no haga daño a nadie, pero la verdad no le veo ningún sentido a hacer deporte desnudo. Continued…Read full original article…
