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.
– Jeg elsker følelsen af at være nøgen og få sol på kroppen. Det er fantastisk at bade nøgen, for man føler sig som en havfrue eller delfin, fortæller Rikke Laursen. Continued…Read full original article…
Nature is glorious. It can make us feel a whole lot of ways — sometimes nature’s splendor makes us want to charge all the way up a mountain, or break out our stupidest dance move on the beach at sunset, or strip down to our birthday suits and skip through a field of wildflowers.
But what happens when our deepest instinct is to strip down naked to take in a primeval forest or a spectacular mountain vista, in a place where a lot of other people are definitely going to be around to spectate? Like in a national park, for instance. Turns out, you wouldn’t be the first person ever to have that impulse. But like so many other impulses, it’s important to know whether it’s legal.

Ok, I hate the term nudist colonies. It feels as this was a kind of a sect or secret cult. Then the use of strange seems to mean that this is a kind of a weird places. Any nudist club or resort is neither a sect nor a weird place. It’s a just a place where people live their own lives while enjoying total nudity.
However, the post Strange Rules and Little-Known Etiquette for Nudist Colonies is much better than its title implies. It describes the unknown rules to non naturist that are applied to almost all the nudist resorts in the world, and uses wonderful paintings to introduce each of it. Let’s list the 12 rules described in this post: Continued…Read full original article…
Never had I imagined I would become a naturist overnight. But after visiting Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in East Gwilliumbury, Ontario, that is exactly what happened.
I moved to the area six short years ago, and must have passed the highway sign more than a hundred times. Each time I thought, “‘I wonder what it’s like, I wish I had the nerve to bare it all in public.”
Naturism—for those who don’t know—is the practice and advocacy of personal and social nudity. I would soon find out there are different degrees of being a naturist. Some people are recreational naturists, and others refer to it as a lifestyle based on personal, family and/or social nudism.
Here is how naturism found me. I had been passing that naturism highway sign for nearly two years until I realized that the only thing stopping me from following my curiosity was a thin layer of cotton fabric on a hot summer day. Continued…Read full original article…
A Nudist may have many reasons for being naked. Some common reasons are self-acceptance, getting closer to nature, physical comfort, and more authentic human connection and relationships.
Nudists feel that a deeper or truer understanding of people can be attained by first stripping away outer signs of class, wealth, and style. A nudist person will argue that mentalities like “clothes make the man” are superficial and judgmental. By removing the means of preconceptions – clothing – people can see each other as human beings and not as their socio-economic status.
A lot of people prefer to live the majority of their lives fairly fully clothed. Some might even spend a good deal of their time focusing on shopping and putting together stylish outfits for this purpose. But there are also a good number of people who prefer to live just the opposite and embrace nudism.
That is, nudism is a lifestyle that is shared by many communities across the world. For some, it offers an alternative or “more natural” way of living. As a side note, “naturism” is actually the term preferred by many nudists today. While nudism and naturism both refer to the practice of going nude in a non-sexual setting, naturism tends to have a philosophy and values behind it. It isn’t just about nudity but about acceptance, equality and respecting others and the environment. Continued…Read full original article…
Hemos querido recuperar una entrevista que se realizó a Emili Vives a día de hoy propietario del primer pueblo naturista de la península ” El Fonoll ” donde se hablaba de las libertades y el veto que sufre el nudismo.
Emili Vives, naturista, decidió poner en marcha El Fonoll hace 20 años con mucho trabajo y mucha ilusión. Aprovechando la entrada en vigor de la prohibición del nudismo y el seminudismo en Barcelona, hablamos con él sobre ésta y otras cuestiones. Continued…Read full original article…
My husband and I wondered why the advertisement for the Sunshine Coast rental property described it as “nudist friendly”. We naively believed it must have been because the place was secluded enough to go clothes-free without offending anyone. How nice to have such privacy, we thought.
On moving in, we discovered our landlord was a travelling naturist, who ran a colony for fellow “clothing optional” enthusiasts on the adjoining property.
When I was a kid, my father always used to sunbathe nude in our garden at weekends. In public pools, children of all ages were allowed to run around naked all the time.
Even today, I’m comfortable with getting naked in the sauna or gym changing room. Maybe it’s because I’m German.
Nudism is traditionally popular in Germany, a country considered buttoned up and conservative compared with, let’s say, Italy.
In Germany, nudism is known as Freikoerperkultur (FKK), Free Body Culture. Baring all is normal in saunas, swimming pools, the park and on the beach.
Summer in the parks of Berlin and Munich brings the chance of encountering a middle-aged, bronzed German wearing only a hat and the BILD-Zeitung, Germany’s favorite tabloid. Cont…Read full original article…
The pressures of modern life can be wearing, and many of us have experienced the urge to quit the job, cancel the rental agreement and travel the world in a tent.
But how many of us would do it nude? As crazy as it sounds, it’s something you might want to consider once you’ve read the story of Lins and Nick, a Belgian couple who are doing just that.
Lins and Nick’s encounters with naturism began about eight years ago – after dabbling with nude spas in their mid-twenties, the pair took the plunge into full-on naturism when they visited a crowded campsite in Luxembourg. Cont…Read full original article…
By the turn of the 20th century, there was a full-fledged nudist movement unfolding in Europe. This wasn’t the oil-soaked, full-penetration nudity of the Roman Empire, but a communal understanding among “nonsexual social nudists,” folks that felt the sting of the Industrial Revolution in their lungs and wanted to get back to nature. They were, predictably, mostly German and they let it all hang out in parks and naturist resorts. Though the trend made its way across the Atlantic, it morphed in America, becoming a beach thing – and, eventually, becoming a subcultural thing.
Mark Haskell Smith, who reports on subcultures for a living, shed it all to live as the nudists do for his book Naked At Lunch. Smith weaves his American and European nudists adventures with the fascinating history of nudism. Inverse talked to him about the future of the no-clothes pastime and what not to do at a nudist resort. Cont…Read full original article…
Nuestra necesidad de absorber el sol por todos los poros de la piel corresponde a una necesidad biológica. …Es una manera de cuidar de nosotros mismos y de honrar este cuerpo que nos ha sido entregado bajo nuestra responsabilidad para que vivamos plenamente nuestra vida terrestre. (France Guillain).
Son muchos los que muestran dificultades en desnudarse en presencia de otras personas. La única razón de esta molestia parece ser la culpabilidad que ha sido inculcada por una educación estricta que considera el cuerpo y los órganos sexuales como algo vergonzoso. Sin embargo, el desnudo aporta muchos beneficios físicos y psicológicos. Es un excelente aprendizaje con el fin de liberarse de la vergüenza, saborear las pequeñas cosas, encontrar más autenticidad en la relación con los demás, desarrollar el respeto y la buena relación con los demás. Igualmente es un sedante de la violencia sexual. Los movimientos naturistas han sido pioneros en esta experiencia armonizadora y liberadora. Cont…Read full original article…

Os presentamos un espacio naturista situado en los pirineos franceses mas concretamente en el Domaine de l’Eglantière, un espacio de 45 hectáreas de tierra naturista a lo largo de la región de Gers, acompañadas de un precioso río. Sin lugar a dudas un marco impresionante en comunión con el medio ambiente.
Con los senderos naturistas se puede explorar una zona verde y en muchas ocasiones se pueden ver ciervos, ardillas, liebres o erizos. Dependiendo de la temporada, los visitantes pueden disfrutar de la cosecha de bayas (moras, fresas silvestres …), setas, castañas e higos.
In some of the first articles on this website we told you how we experienced our first time nude among others and how we accidentally landed on a nudist campground. This is pretty much how we rolled into it. At the time we didn’t ask ourselves too many questions about this, it was what it was, and we enjoyed it. Only later, after talking to several other nudists and after reading about it on the web, it occurred to us that we were actually pretty lucky because we were born in a country where nudism is quite accepted and because we both stepped into it together. We hear so many stories where one partner really had to convince the other to give it a shot, sometimes resulting in a life long nudist couple but other times the answer would remain a plain “No” and so there was one more closet nudist. Or worse.
In several other articles we’ve tried to give you some reasons to engage into nudism. 7 Reasons to become a nudie is such an example, but also in Undress to destress or Improve your body acceptance by going nude we’ve been talking a lot about the advantages of being a nudist.
All of the philosophies which you can find in above articles are not ours of course. But because we strongly believe in them, we’ve brought them to you in our own words.
Sometimes, however, a smart ass will ask us: “Yeah, yeah, we know about the feeling of freedom and the equality and the lack of tan lines and stuff like that, but tell me, why did YOU decide to be nudists?”
And they don’t want to hear the stories about how we accidentally rolled into it, they want to know why we stuck to it, why we got interested in it, to such an extend that we even started writing about it. Cont…Read full original article…
Nudismo. Ya está. Solo con escuchar la palabra es casi inevitable que te hayas imaginado una playa con gente en pelotas, seguramente mayor y sin depilar, a la que le gusta exhibirse y mirar a otros haciendo lo mismo. Pero solo tienes que googlear esta palabra para saber que la concepción que tenemos del naturismo, un movimiento mucho más amplio que el nudismo ‘a secas’, no deja de ser un saco de prejuicios. Para mí, como mujer milenial que cada día intenta no juzgar su cuerpo, sigo siendo incapaz de hacer topless si hay algún miembro de mi familia o algún hombre a quien yo conozca y que no sea mi pareja. Así que, pensé, si tanta gente lo hace, mucho de bueno debe tener y yo quiero saber qué es. Y me fui a buscarlo, esta vez completamente desnuda, a uno de esos centros del respeto por el cuerpo y la naturaleza: un camping naturista.
Después de conducir hora y media desde Barcelona hasta L’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Tarragona) mi pareja y yo (a quién llamaré M. en adelante) llegamos a El Templo del Sol, uno de los nueve campings nudistas que hay actualmente en España y que, según me cuenta Ferràn Pujol, su Director de Comunicación, es de los mejor considerados. Ferràn me espera en la entrada para darme la bienvenida, para mi alivio, vestido. Me explica que allí todos los empleados llevan ropa para evitar malentendidos. Así que M. y yo todavía tenemos algunos minutos de margen para ‘enfrentarnos’ a nuestra desnudez pública y a la preocupación que le genera el pensar que va a pasarse todo el día empalmado.
El camping que, por cierto, está tan a tope de gente que no hay ningún bungalow, caravana ni tienda de campaña libre donde podamos pasar la noche, es la ‘torre de vigilancia’ que cuida de la zona. Lo único que la asociación naturista que protege la playa natural de El Torn y sus alrededores permitió construir con el fin de repeler a los rascacielos y los adosados típicos de las costas españolas. A día de hoy, aproximadamente 2.000 personas llenan este complejo, creado hace 25 años por una pareja francesa enamorada del naturismo y la Costa Dorada, y pasan el verano haciendo barbacoas, bañándose en su piscina panorámica y montando en bici. Lo mismo que tú o yo haríamos en un camping, pero en pelotas. Cont…Read full original article…
The human body is self-regulating. It knows what it needs. Most of the time, the body is able to find balance within itself, without dictates from the brain. The body always seeks balance. I got out of my clothe inside my tent. I stepped out and stood up, naked from head to toe. My body needed the warmth of the summer sun, the gentle breeze of fresh air. My body said thank you, this is right for all of us. I let my body tell my brain there was no need for feelings of anxiety or shame. There was no need for those feelings because there was no room for them. I looked for them in all the usual places; the way I hold my arm in front of my belly, the decline and forward pitch of my head, the small space between my shoulders and my ears. I looked but I saw no shame, no embarrassment, no fear. My arms were relaxed, my shoulders were settled. I looked up and out, my collarbones spread wide, heart open. What I felt was bliss. What I felt was, in fact, me. My body and my brain agreed. I had made a right choice for them both and all was in balance within me.
I didn’t think it was the right choice a few hours ago. I had waited until the last minute to gather some things from the garage, and I wasn’t finding what I needed. I still had many questions buzzing around in my head. Were the campgrounds guarded at night? Should I bring a chair? What if I hate it? The afternoon was now tumbling into evening and I still had not finished packing the car. This early morning I took the car in for an oil change, but I forgot to get gas. I had a 3 ½ hour drive. Campsites at Turtle Lake Resort are not reserved and are given out on a first-come-first serve basis. I was hungry and I was stressed and I was anxious. Even though I called the resort no less than three times with questions, and perused the website countless times, I still had more questions. Could I have a campfire? For a moment I thought I should just wait and leave in the morning. I didn’t want to have to set my tent up in the dark. I stopped buzzing around and ate. Finally fed, I decided that I still had enough time to drive up to Michigan before sunset–at least 5 hours of daylight left. As I finished packing the last bag, I thought it was funny how empty the bag was without clothes. Cont…Read full original article…
“A filosofia naturista prega a nudez social sem agredir o outro, em contato com a natureza, respeitando ao próximo, a si mesmo e ao meio ambiente. Ela vai além da nudez e despe, também, dos preconceitos e amarras sociais”.
“O praticante é julgado pelo seu caráter e não pela vestimenta que está usando. Sem o julgamento que é possível fazer pela roupa que o outro veste, somos todos iguais”.
“No dia a dia, o naturismo é aplicado em coisas simples com separar lixo reciclável, não comer ou beber muita porcaria, ter árvores em casa, não comprar em estabelecimentos que arrancam a árvore da calçada, não desperdiçar embalagens e papel e não comprar coisas desnecessárias”, Cont…Read full original article…
Life is full of opportunities. Some you jump at, go after, grab. Others, you take a pass, let go. Hopefully that decision is made after careful consideration. But sometimes time isn’t on your side and you have to go with a gut reaction. But when you do have time, you need to make sure your decision is based on sound reasoning, on facts, on “the important stuff”. Unfortunately, for many, decisions are often made on supposition, misconception, misunderstanding, and emotions like fear and lack of self confidence and self esteem. Those decisions can lead to the R word — regrets.
Regrets….well, they suck. Just no other way to put it. Wishing you had done something, tried something, said something different than what you did, can be hard to live with. It’s like a recurring nightmare that pops into your head every now and then to remind you — you make mistakes, your not infallible, and this one time…..you blew it. Great, thanks. Experiencing the memory of a regret leaves you hollow, again, kicking yourself for the decision you made, no matter how understandable it might be.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. The way I try to look at events like these aren’t as a regret, a moment where I blew it. But as a time where I learned a lesson in how not to do something. What’s that old quote about Edison inventing the light bulb and not having success after many attempts. “I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. He didn’t regret those 10,000 times. He learned from them. Doesn’t mean he wouldn’t have liked to have had success on attempt #1. It just means he didn’t dwell on all the misses. He kept moving forward. Cont…Read full original article…
