Can We Live Naked On A Permanent Basis?
The answer to the title of this post is a resounding yes, without any doubt or hesitation. It’s not about throwing all your clothes to the trash, but to decide to wear as little as possible and to remain naked as much as possible. Here’s why and how.

Nudity is a natural state of any mammal in general and the human being in particular. Being nude at home, in your intimacy, is a normal state. The first advice I give to the aspiring naturists is to start by sleeping naked. There is nothing more comfortable. If you used to sleep with pajamas, a nightgown or any other garment, the first night would seem odd to you. You’ll probably feel like you’re doing something wrong. Don’t worry; you’re not doing anything wrong. On the contrary, you’re doing something healthy for your body and skin.

If you are afraid of being cold, add a blanket or put a goose-feather duvet. In the morning, when waking up, stay naked, if the temperature allows it of course. If your home is well insulated and the temperature around sixty-eight degrees in the winter,you can comfortably stay naked. The feeling of cold often comes from the feet,put on warm slippers to remain at home. Prepare breakfast and take it naked. If you live with other people, you may not want to be naked in front of them right away. It’s coming! Continued…Read full original article…

Is Family Nudity and Nudism Really Good for Children?
Is Nudism, and Family Nudity Good for Children? Aren’t Kids Nudists Anyway?
Is Nudism Good for Children and The Truth Behind Nudity in the Family:

Benjamin Spock, Ann Landers, and Abigail van Buren, all popular authorities on child-rearing and other matters, have often warned of the dangers of exposing children to nudity. Though their theories on the matter are well-known, are they truly valid? Is there solid research to prove it? Studies of how nudity affects kids are actually sparse, though they have slightly increased in number in recent years.

The findings and their interpretations are often influenced by researchers’ own preconceptions, including findings that may better explain the effects of parents’ attitudes toward nudity on kids rather than the actual effect of children being exposed to nudity.

Family nudity – How does it affect childhood development? We consult the research!
Family nudity – How does it affect childhood development? We consult the research!

However since the late 1970’s, more objective and controlled research has taken place in an effort to identify the truth of how exposure to nudity affects child development. All of this nudism research indicates not only a lack of negative effects, but a whole list of benefits to children.

One of the first truly objective studies was developed by Dr. Marilyn Story, a researcher who sought to examine the role of family social nudity classification on body self-concept development in preschool-aged children. Dr. Story interviewed 264 children aged three to five years as well as their parents. The children were classified in one of three categories: social naturists or simply put – nudist kids, at-home nudist, and non-nudist kids. Continued…Read full original article…

Why do teenagers turn away from nudism and is that such a big deal?

Toddlers are born naturists and not only literally (although they’re obviously delivered naked). In fact they might well be the most genuine kind of naturist there is, they don’t even question their nudity. Most of them will question clothes though and if they see an opportunity to get rid of them they’ll often take advantage of that. Our memory doesn’t go that far back, but we would like to remember the day when being nude was not an option anymore. Yesterday it was completely normal to run around the garden naked, jump through the sprinklers on a hot summer day while everyone smiled and agreed with your joy. The next day this was not possible anymore… Bathing suits suddenly became the norm.

What went through our heads?

Did we question this at all?

While naturist children get a lot more options to be naked and until a much older age, they are not exactly spared from having to wear clothes, even not when weather clearly asks for the least possible textile. They have to go to school, they have to go shopping and on the non-naturist beaches a naked 10 year old is just not done. Continued…Read full original article…

Never let an opportunity to be Naked pass you by.
My husband and I have lived in the village of Tantallon for nearly 18 years and every day when we go out for errands we drive over a bridge that has a creek which flows into the bay.

Tantallon, for those who don’t know, is on the east coast of Nova Scotia approximately 40 miles from Halifax on the highway and Peggy’s Cove on the coastal route.

Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia

It was a unseasonably warm day (16 Celsius) or (60 Fahrenheit) and we had some heavy rain over the weekend and the usually tranquil creek became a torrential river.

I knew that this might have been the last time before winter to have some pictures taken so John and I drove up the road along the river and what a sight it was.

The crashing water over the rocks was beautiful and at once peaceful listening to the rushing water. The path along the shoreline with the multi-colored leaves was slippery but manageable. Continued…Read full original article…

The Loss of Innocence and the Joy of Skinny Dipping
Fall and winter will soon be upon us and already I am thinking of summer and the warmth of the sun on my bare skin. We certainly should never wish our lives away as time goes by much faster than when we were younger.

Fond memories of my younger days come to mind when my family lived in the country and I would spend the hot summer days with my neighbor that was my age and also my best friend. He was much more fit than I as he lived on the farm across from our house and all the boys had to help with chores once they got back from school. This was before high school and he was the first boy I saw naked and he convinced me to join him when he had some free time.

Even though I had five older brothers and five older sisters, I had never seen any of them naked. Being from a large catholic family, being nude was a definite no no.

The first time my friend and I were nude together was when we went on a bicycle ride and stopped by a river to have the sandwiches we had packed for lunch. I remember it was a hot and humid day in July and my friend had taken off his shirt. At 11 years of age he was quite toned and tanned compared to my scrawny white skinned body.

Strictly star Claudia Winkleman, 46, reveals she walks around naked at home…to the horror of her 15-year-old son

Strictly Come Dancing star Claudia Winkleman has revealed that she waltzes around naked at home – much to the horror of her teenage son.

The presenter says she and her movie producer husband, Kris Thykier, like to wander around their house in the nude despite the protests of Jake, 15.

The couple also have a daughter Mathilda, 12, and younger son Arthur, aged seven.

‘Everyone is naked. It is like, “Let’s all have lunch. Take our clothes off first… I have made a fish pie”,’ said Winkleman, 46.

‘The 15-year-old is appalled but the whole point about mums is that they are meant to be embarrassing.’

I Let My Toddler Run Around Naked & I’m Not Sorry

My children spend most of their lives naked as little jay birds. I’m pretty sure our property has been unofficially designated a nudist colony. This past summer, I don’t think my daughter had clothes on when we weren’t leaving the house. But even beyond our borders, my kids have never had any qualms about “putting themselves out there.” Now that they’re getting a little bit older, I try to teach them the importance of “time and place,” but when they were toddlers? Ha. I let my toddlers run around naked in public and I’m not sorry.

Look, it’s not like I defiantly march them nude into libraries and grocery stores to make some sort of body positive, political statement. I don’t look at signs that say “no shirt, no shoes, no service” and, in protest, encourage my kids to disrobe. If we leave the house we put on clothes. But they regularly failed to grasp the concept of which body parts are supposed to be hidden from public view and which are fair game. They’d run out of a public bathroom with their underwear around their ankles (or, when they were younger, remove their diapers all together). My daughter had an inexplicable habit of lifting her shirt or dress above her head everywhere and anywhere for no discernible reason. It’s not that I’d let these things go unchecked — I would casually put an end to their random acts of streaking — I just didn’t get flustered or bent out of shape about it. I’d usually chuckle, snap a picture (because what is parenting if not a decades long blackmail scheme?) and tell them it was time to put their clothes back on. This casual approach is very much intentional. Continued…Read full original article…

Making Your Coming Out as a Naturist

You are a naturist, but no one from your friends and family knows! You dream of spending days naked, but do not know how to ask your friends! You keep going to the nudist beach all by yourself, while you wish to be accompanied. These are some situations that some naturists live, due to the fear of judgment of others. To live your naturism every day, it is important to annihilate this fear and make your “coming out.”

Naturism is Normal

What could be more normal than being naked? For many people, if not a majority, nudity equals sexuality. This is the first idea we need to get rid of. If nudity in intimacy is normal, socially, it is also. In my post, 10 ways to become comfortable with nudity, I explain how to reclaim your nudity and naked body.

Society, religion or culture amalgamates sexuality and nudity. They limit the naked body to a “sexual being.” Unless you have been raised in a naturist family, it will generally be necessary to deconstruct this paradigm, to see nakedness as a normal and natural state. Being naked must not create a malaise or be taboo. A naked body is just a naked body, not the sexual manifestation of a human being. Continued…Read full original article…

¿Dónde nació la cultura del nudismo?

Las vacaciones de verano se han esfumado casi sin que nos demos cuenta. Parece que fue ayer cuando llegábamos a una ciudad costera, abandonábamos las bolsas y maletas en la puerta de un apartamento y corríamos a la playa más cercana. El único requisito para colocar el primer pie fuera del marco de la puerta era haberse puesto antes el bañador.

Hay algunos sitios donde esto último ni siquiera hace falta. Los que prefieren pasearse en cueros por la arena ganan un tiempo precioso: no tienen que preocuparse del traje de baño. Ni del principal, ni de ese secundario que algunas personas llevan para evitar humedades incómodas. Continued…Read full original article…

Rikke er naturist: Vi skal stoppe med at være så kropsforskrækkede
Naturisten Rikke Laursen har altid elsket at være nøgen. Hun gider ikke være perfekt og har fundet friheden på naturistcamping.

På naturistcampingpladsen ved Kysing Strand går naturisten Rikke Laursen og klipper hæk med sin veninde, som er på besøg.

Veninden er ikke naturist og er en stor kvinde på omkring 140 kilo, så hun har ikke lyst til at være nøgen. Men det er varmt at klippe hæk og lige så stille smider veninden tøjet.

Til sidst er hun med nede og bade nøgen, og for første gang nogensinde kunne Rikkes veninde hvile i at være nøgen. For rundt omkring dem gik andre naturister med et par ekstra kilo på sidebenene, og det er fuldt acceptabelt.

Og det er netop det naturisme gør; at man føler sig fri, ifølge Rikke Laursen.

Nudist swims for kids defended as ‘safe, happy and healthy’
Ryedale Naturist Club offered children free tickets to its naked swims :: Leading naturists said the sessions are in children’s ‘best interest’

Naturists have jumped to the defence of naked child swim sessions, claiming they are in children’s “best interest”.

Leading lovers of nature hit back against “mass hysteria” prompted by Ryedale Naturist Club’s free swim offer to under 18s.

A council investigation was launched into the club after The Gazette disclosed details of an advert encouraging kids to swim nude alongside adults at Derwent Pool, near Malton, North Yorkshire .

References to children, and the club’s free entry offer, have since been deleted from the club’s website after a flurry of online anger.

But British Naturism (BN) stood by the sessions, saying: “A naturist environment is a safe, happy and healthy environment for a child to be a part of.

“Prudery, not openness or nudity, harms children.”

Andrew Calow, from BN Yorkshire, said it is in a child’s “best interest” to see real bodies rather than explore the internet.

Children in Naturism

Our children are being raised in a society where we are constantly bombarded with messages that make us feel ashamed and insecure about our bodies. We are told that we are only worthy if we reach the impossible ideals of the beauty myth. Concurrently, our bodies are also being objectified and over-sexualized. Naturism is the very antidote to all those ills that afflict our world.

Children raised in naturism learn to accept the human body and recognize that everyone is unique. Comfort with nudity combined with naturist values lead to a healthy self-image and strong self-esteem. Although good parenting is by far the most important factor in raising children, naturism helps to promote their confidence and understanding about their bodies.naturist / nudist baby

Anyone who has observed children knows that they are enthusiastic naturists. We have never seen young children who are self-conscious when nude. In fact, you may observe them squeal with delight when they are allowed to run around nude. It is only in their later years that they are pressured into being self-conscious and adopt older people’s phobias about the body. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudist Reality vs. Cancelled Calgary Nude Swimming Event

It’s 2018 and the community that wears a swimsuit in the pool or ocean has a long way to go to understand the nudist lifestyle and values Recently the city of Calgary cancelled a nude swimming event planned for an indoor swimming/recreation facility sponsored by the group Calgary Nude Recreation.

This wasn’t the first time a nudist group had rented a city of Calgary owned facility for an event and it won’t be the last either. Unfortunately this time, public outcry and threats of violence pushed city officials to cancel the event. An online petition supported by more than 22,000 people framed the argument against the event stating the following concerns:

“I respect the concept and believe in an 18+ setting it could be a popular event. However, having naked children around a bunch of naked adults doesnt seem like a good idea for any reason.

The Naturist Talks: David From Belgium
As you may have read in the very first post of this blog, one of the main reasons why we started this project is to show the world that naturists are not some strange dark commune but that actually everyone could be one… Or could enjoy being one if they took the first step.

Our main example of “everyone” is of course ourselves, we write posts about naturism in general but also about our own experiences. But some of you might be thinking “Yes sure, those two are probably just the strange kids in the block…” (nah, we know you’re not thinking that about us, but we’re trying to write an introduction here). So we decided to let other naturists have a word as well.

I’ve become convinced that, like a summer holiday, Christmas is a time when people can ‘let their guard down’ a bit.

Many women who would never contemplate going topless (or nude) at home will happily shed their bikini top, or more, when taken out of their usual habitat and routine. It’s a time to do things that are a bit ‘silly’.

The naked truth about sunbathing … and here’s a titillating glimpse of me and Mrs Wells in the buff
Columnist Martin Wells decide to throw of the constraints of moralistic suburbia and go naturist on their European tour

As I’ve hinted at before in this column, there’s something intensely liberating about being alone in a foreign country with no one but each other to worry about.

My wife and I are free to be who we want to be and, indeed, free to be who we’d like to be. There are none of the restraints you find in normal social situations, where the company of friends demands a certain conformity and you are scared of ‘letting your hair down’ for fear that someone you know might be watching.

And judging. Continued…Read full original article…

There’s a Tribe of Modern Day Nudists in Australia
Stepping up to a mind-melting lookout, whipping your clothes off and letting your unmentionables dangle as freely as the day you were born. Welcome to the secret life of modern day nudists.

He never really understood the big fuss around nudity and never developed the awkward inhibitions that he reckons society places on us. “It’s no big deal in my eyes, we’ve all got the same parts and we’ve all seen it before!”

How It All Began

Like all good things, it started out as a bit of innocent fun. As a modern day Christmas gift for his fiancé, he snapped twelve shots of himself at Sydney’s most scenic locations, each with a common theme: only a birthday suit allowed. He turned the cheeky pics into a calendar, covered it in tinsel and made his partner’s Christmas that year.

For a giggle he also created the Get Naked Australia Instagram page. It would seem there are a few closet fans of naturism out there too, the page went viral and in a little over a year the page has grown to 216k followers and become one of our favourite social pages in the digi-sphere.

Initially it was just his friends joining the starkers party, but it quickly snowballed and now fun folk from the length and breadth of the country share their prized snaps with Brendan. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudists Always Play Volleyball
Undressing at the nudist resort.

Although every one of us enters this beautiful, ruined world naked, sometimes it’s hard to believe that nudity is our natural state. Being born is the one true leveler, the last time most of us will ever arrive in a room lacking the social signifiers that clothing confers. For a few heady moments we’re free—free!—before they bring in the onesies and the teensy beanies and booties and swaddle our shame in respectability.

From then on, being naked is reserved for a few sanctioned occasions in life: bathing, sex, maybe sleeping. But some people demand more liberation from the shirts and pants and ties that bind. Last summer, my husband Adam and I decided to join a few thousand of those people on vacation. Call them naturists, nudists, exhibitionists, perverts—the guests at Koversada, one of Croatia’s largest nudist resorts, don’t really seem to care what labels the outside world chooses to place on them. They’re too busy working on their all-over tans and disconcertingly harmonious relationships. Continued…Read full original article…

Vintage Season, 2017 (3)/First time : ‘I was that naturist child’
Frank, a reader in the US, provides a short, yet very valuable, recollection of his first experiences of naturism and the values it instills in people from a. very young age. He writes…

Hi Ella. I saw this photograph [attached by me, Frank an attachment in his communication : Ella] online and it reminded me of my own childhood, growing up as a naturist child to parents who belonged to a landed club here in the US in the 60s. I can’t actually remember my first time as nudism was always there in my family. I’d have been taken maybe weeks after I was born and been wandering around there before I can consciously recall. I took some of my first steps at the club and learned to swim at the club. I can recall running around playing with other kids, male and female, all around the same age, without ever thinking ‘hey, she’s different from me’. We were just kids loving life in the sun most weekends and vacations.

I can’t remember now, but I guess I’d eventually have begun to notice differences in boys and girls as we all hit puberty but it still didn’t seem to matter even though we were all going through that highly-charged period of our development. I also recall developing a crush on a girl a couple of years older than me when I was about 14-15. It had nothing to do with her being a beautiful (and naked) young woman and more to do with her just having such a sense of fun, of being the life and soul of the teenager events the club held at weekends. We’d dance to Beatle records and just have the most fantastic time with much more in the way of the freedoms than non-nudist children. Being outdoors at weekends, naked in nature, also gave us a love of nature. The girl I had the crush on, being a couple of years older, seemed so wise and educated. I could sit there for hours, open-mouthed, while she talked about the bugs and birds that we’d find around the club. 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.

Why nudism is critical and matters to society

Nudists know the many benefits of nudism and shared nudity. However, a vast majority of people, who are not nudists, see nudity as bad. We know this feeling is rooted in education as well as the fact that society has been sexualizing nudity for years. Therefore, people associate nudity to sex, and because sex is private, nudity should be. End of the story for many people.

Nudists have disassociated nudity and sex. Being naked is therefore normal, natural and social. With this, every nudist has been exposed to all sorts of nude bodies: every color, gender, body shape, scars, etc. Nudists know that nudism is all about being comfortable in our ones skin, with ones own body. When kids are exposed to nudism early or adults later when they embrace the nudism lifestyle, they understand that people are all different and come to respect, and appreciate, those differences.

A mummy blogger has revealed how she and her husband are ‘more than happy’ to be naked in front of their children.

Celine Bell, 37, from east London, said she is relaxed about stripping off when at home with her sons Arthur, three, and 18-month-old George.

She explained that her youngsters meanwhile ‘revel in being naked’, and are ‘proud of what their bodies can achieve’.

However, she admitted there will come a time when she and her husband Pete, 39, will have to be ‘mindful’ of their children, and cover up.

Writing on her blog Bell From Bow, she said: ‘It when we are not out of the house, we are as laissez faire as we’ve always been, and that includes being naked in front of the kids.’ Continued…Read full original article…

Our First Wedding Anniversary

On November 18th, John and I celebrated our first official wedding anniversary so I thought it appropriate to write about how John and I met. This is but one of many “special” dates that John and I acknowledge having been together starting our 23rd year!

Call it fate, serendipity or cosmic alignment, I was taken with John since I was nineteen when my sister Lucille came home from our sister-in-law Donna’s mother candlelit suppers. She showed me a 45 rpm of one of John and Scot’s music. She said they played a few songs at the piano and she said she thought they were gay. I was still questioning my own identity at that point and that peaked my interest. I’d listen to both sides over and over and said to myself “I’m going to marry him one day”. With a face like that, how could I not be smitten? Continued…Read full original article…

Traumatised?

So often we read stories featuring adults who say, in relation to nudity -in or out off a naturist context- ‘but my child might see this!’

Let’s be honest : children aren’t traumatised by simple nudity.

They may be taught to be ‘traumatised’ by it, but that’s down to you, the adult failing in your parenting skills. Continued…Read full original article…

Sección de libros: Le sein, une histoire

A finales de septiembre estuve en una comida familiar, y entre otros temas, se habló de cómo ahora se está promoviendo entre la clase médica el hecho de dar el pecho todo el tiempo posible, sin límite temporal: sólo cuando el niño dejara de querer teta, o bien cuando la madre se quedara sin leche. Las dos primas que introdujeron el tema recordaban como, cuando ellas tuvieron a sus retoños, o bien se pregonaban las bondades de las leches artificiales maternizadas, o bien se propugnaba que el periodo de amamantar debía limitarse a los cuatro meses de baja maternal. La reflexión que subyacía en todo esto era que opinaban que el cambio de parecer entre la clase médica tenía que ver, muy probablemente, con una política de exclusión de la mujer del mercado laboral, para así reducir las cifras del paro (lo habían oído en un programa de Radio Klara -la emisora libre y libertaria de València-). Argumentaban que antes, al ser necesaria la presencia de la mujer para cubrir los puestos de trabajo, se intentaba que los periodos de lactancia se acortaran al máximo o incluso que no existieran, para que se reincorporaran cuanto antes a sus puestos de trabajo; pero que en la actualidad, como no hay puestos de trabajo suficientes, se fomenta la exclusión del mercado laboral a la mujer fomentando la lactancia materna todo el tiempo que sea posible…

Astarté, diosa nodriza (dea nutrix) fenicia

Cuando acabo la comida, en la despedida, me dirigí hacia mis primas y no pude hacer otra cosa que recomendarles la lectura de este libro:

Ahora mismo, estoy tentado de escribir un resumen del libro, diciendo que nos describe con total precisión, y basándose en la información historiográfica disponible (la escultura, la pintura, los escritos de cada época) como la visión del pecho femenino ha evolucionado, siempre bajo la atenta mirada y el prisma masculino, que ha impuesto según su conveniencia una visión u otra del mismo; por ello, en unos tiempos se ha fomentado la lactancia materna de la madre en exclusiva, y en otros se han impuesto las nodrizas… (yo realmente no sé si he tenido nodriza o no, pero en mi vida ha existido una teta Carmen… aunque también es cierto que en Valencia a los hermanos se les ha llamado siempre tete y a las hermanas teta… hasta que llegó la identificación sexualizada de la palabra -bien reciente- y ha desparecido prácticamente del vocabulario).
