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.

– 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…

The naturist campsites in Wales where happy campers strip off for their stay
“The place to be when you’ve nothing on”

When you’re going camping, it’s important to pack essentials like a sleeping bag and a tent.

But if you’re visiting one of these places, you might want to unpack your clothes.

A number of naturist campsites can be found dotted across the country, and they encourage guests to embrace the naturist ethos by enjoying their stay in the nude.

Located in quiet and often rural areas, many of the sites provide camping pitches, campervan hook-up points and even cottages or chalets to rent.

Some also offer facilities such as hot showers, swimming pools and game courts.

But one thing they do all have in common is that they’re frequented by people who prefer being in the buff. Continued…Read full original article…

Nudity Isn’t Illegal in National Parks, But Don’t Do Anything Weird

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.

Signs prohibiting nudity are posted on San Onofre State Beach trails in North San Diego County, Calif. There's actually no federal regulation against it in national parks, but some states prohibit public nudity, so don't assume you are safe to strip down because you're in a national park.

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.

Strange Rules and Little-Known Etiquette for Nudist Colonies

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…

1,000 families project: naked among the oak trees—a mom of two embraces naturism
In this family, mom practises naturism and enjoys hanging out in the nude with her two naked little cherubs. Dad? He’d rather keep his clothes on.

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…

Nudism, Nudists and Everything You Want To Know About The Nudist Lifestyle and Nudism!
Introduction to Nudism and what does being a nudist mean?

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…

What I learnt living next to a nudist colony

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.

Our landlord ran a colony for “clothing optional” enthusiasts.

Nudity in Germany: Here’s the naked truth

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…

When Will We Accept Nudity?

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.

El placer de la desnudez

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…

Why we chose to be nudists

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…

Me quité la ropa y los prejuicios para pasar un día en un camping nudista

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.

Camping El Templo del Sol
Camping El Templo del Sol

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…

Out Of My Clothes And Into My Body: My First Experience with Nude Camping

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…

Conheça a filosofia naturista e viva mais feliz.

“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…

Taking a Leap

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…

‘It is such a liberating experience’: Naturists get real about life in the raw
A naturist lifestyle is about much more than getting your gear off.

Stuart Whelan and his wife left their corporate life in Sydney to own and operate a naturist retreat in Nelsons Bay.

Nude awakenings: the misunderstood world of naturism

Andrew Welch would like to make it clear he has never had an orgy, thank you very much. Nor has he ever cavorted, prepared to cavort or even thought about cavorting. He is not a pervert, he is not corrupting your children, and he is not – for the love of God – ‘offending’ you. Andrew Welch is just a naturist, like millions of other people, and he’d love for you to join him some time.

Naturists being naturists, not a mass suicide

“The British public tend to have this absurd stigma about it,” Welch says, with a touch of exasperation. “It’s about nakedness in general. They think there’s something immodest or unnatural about it, that by being naturists we’re doing something illicit. It’s so far from the truth that it’s laughable, it really is.”

Welch has been Commercial Manager for British Naturism (BN) – the national organisation for social nudists – for over a decade, joining a small and committed staff of part-timers at the Northampton-based non-profit.

It’s his job to change minds and address the reputation surrounding a pursuit many dismiss as distinctly odd, conducted at best by elderly eccentrics with an unnerving love of volleyball, or at worst by sex-crazed elderly eccentrics with an unnerving love of volleyball.

Do naturists have the right idea raising kids around social nudity?
A study shows those who spend time naked or partially naked around others like their bodies more, regard themselves more positively and are more satisfied with life.

Growing up, Andrea Budzey’s only notion of being naked in a social setting was through hearing about so-called nudist colonies.

But after passing the sign for Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park on Highway 404 near East Gwillimbury, Ont. for years, she had grown curious.

Andrea Budzey made her first foray into social nudity at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in East Gwillimbury, Ont. when her first child, pictured here, was just 5 months old. Research shows that people who spend time nude or partially nude around other people like their bodies more, regard themselves more positively overall and are more satisfied with life overall.

“I found out that naturist meant nudist, because I was unfamiliar with the term. And then I was just blown away knowing that it was actually close to where I lived,” she says.

A new mom, Budzey decided that a visit to Bare Oaks should go on her bucket list. So on one beautiful summer day when the weather was just right, she packed up her then five-month-old son and made the trip.

El nudismo genera millones de euros anuales a Italia
La cultura del naturismo gana adeptos y le genera a Italia crecientes ingresos turísticos, que podrían aumentar para estar a tono con otros países europeos.

La cultura del naturismo, que además del nudismo implica contacto directo con la naturaleza, nutrición sana, nada de alcohol y deportes en el exterior, gana adeptos y le genera a Italia crecientes ingresos turísticos, que podrían aumentar para estar a tono con otros países europeos. Desde las playas de Guvano en Liguria al Oasis de Capocotta en Lazio, desde Punta Ferruccio en Abruzzo a las Lagunas del Mort en Véneto son algunos de los 50 sitios específicos donde se practica el naturismo en la península.

Los italianos representan una minoría huéspedes extranjeros entre los clientes que se alojan en algún destino naturista.

A Italia todavía le falta camino por recorrer si se compara con otros países, comenzando por Francia que inauguró su primer parque público nudista; Croacia, destino top del estilo durante este verano y España, en especial las Islas Baleares. Estos son los paraísos donde la Frei Korper Kultur (FKK), la “Cultura del cuerpo libre” surgida en Alemania en el siglo XIX tiene menos restricciones y está reglamentada por leyes propias, aunque en la península itálica también se espera que la tendencia produzca “un pequeño tesoro”.

The North Side of Naked Mallorca

After a few edgy opinion pieces, I thought it might be time to get back to documenting our naturist travels, leading out with a few words and pictures of our naked explorations on the north side of Mallorca.

This was our second visit to Mallorca, and likewise, our second stay at Skinny Dippers Naturist Retreat; an idyllic little haven just a few minutes drive from the famous naturist beach, Es Trenc. During our first stay about a year ago, we were so mesmerized by the place that we scarcely left the side of the pool, lacking neither the energy nor motivation to get dressed and explore.

This time, however, we decided we should see a bit more of the island, one day setting off on a train excursion from Palma to a little German enclave on the eastern shores of Mallorca, then another day driving directly north to check out a couple other renowned naturist beaches on the island.

En anteriores artículos hemos estado hablando acerca de lo que va a ser del nudismo en “El futuro del nudismo“. Por resumir, creemos que el nudismo “tal como la conocemos” desaparecerá con el tiempo y dejará lugar a un nuevo tipo de nudismo, “Nudismo 2.0” si lo desea.

Este nuevo tipo de nudismo se centrará mucho más en lo que la generación más joven quiere. Menos torneos de bolos, menos noches de natación y menos noches de concurso. Sí, soñamos con trabajos desnudos, con entrenamientos desnudos y con partidos de fútbol desnudos, pero hay bastantes eventos que ya están sucediendo.

Los nudistas 2.0 tendrán sus propias fiestas, festivales de música, carreras y paseos en bicicleta. Harán todo lo que los textiles hacen… pero sin el “textil” o ropajes. Cont…Read full original article…

The Naked Truth About German Nudists

A FEW YEARS AGO, a black-and-white photograph emerged of three young women walking along a dock with an expanse of sparkling water behind them. All were smiling and were naked, and soon after the picture appeared online, gleeful commenters across the web began insisting that the woman on the left was Angela Merkel. The German chancellor’s office declined to comment, and while many now believe the photograph’s association with Merkel to be a hoax, there’s plenty of reason to think that Merkel, who grew up in a small East German town north of Berlin, came of age frolicking in the nude.

Germany’s millions of nudists, like those shown here, tend to be older, plump and proud.
Germany’s millions of nudists, like those shown here, tend to be older, plump and proud. Roshan Adhihetty

It would hardly count as conspiracy theory. Public nakedness is common in the former G.D.R.: Of the 8 to 12 million nudists in Germany, the majority live in the east and are over 50 years old. One regularly observes men and women of all backgrounds — from dull public servants to service workers to members of the German intelligentsia — relaxing and socializing without any clothes. They read alone in the park or chat in groups at the beach; some prepare to swim, while others wash down bites of bratwurst with pilsner.

They consider themselves members of an informal movement known as FKK, an abbreviation of Freikörperkultur, which translates to Free Body Culture. Despite the aggressive-sounding name, there is nothing confrontational or self-righteous or even erotic about it. Unlike in America, where public nudity typically has gay or countercultural connotations, in modern Germany it seems to have none. What began in the late 1800s as a kind of philosophy of physical health transformed, under authoritarian rule, into a mode of quasi-dissident leisure, and then later into something more temperate, a culturally ingrained but ultimately apolitical national pastime.

‘Voyeurism and accidental observation’ – Naturists object to 450-homes in Telford over fears they will be left exposed
Naturists have objected to a scheme to build 450 houses in Telford – because they fear they will be overlooked by home-owners.

Members of Telford Naturist Club warned of the risk of voyeurism or “accidental observation”.

An objection on behalf of the club’s base, Windings Caravan Site, raised concerns about the proposal.

Comment devient-on naturiste?
J’ai choisi délibérément de poser cette question en titre, pour éveiller la curiosité des non initiés et en espérant ouvrir la discussion avec des naturistes chevronnés.

Il y a quelques semaines, j’ai de nouveau été conviée à découvrir deux lieux de vacances. J’aurais pu dire non. J’aurais pu réfléchir un peu. J’aurais pu mettre ce mail directement aux oubliettes. Mais j’ai accepté derechef! Une peu trop derechef d’ailleurs, parce que j’avais un naturismo-sceptique à la casa. L’occasion était trop belle pour moi, trop osée pour lui. J’ai donc fait ce que font toutes les personnes saines d’esprit, en cas de contrariété intense: j’ai boudé!

Alors Nino, à la vue de ma mine déconfite, il s’est dit que ça devait me tenir à coeur. Il s’est dit que peut être on pourrait tenter l’expérience. Il s’est dit que j’étais une tête-de-mûle-fais-tes-valises-on-s’en-va-mais-laisse-un-slip-au-fond-du-sac-au-cas-où-au-moins-pour-moi. (Je t’ai déjà dit que j’étais éperdument amoureuse de lui!)

Je n’avais aucune appréhension. J’avais bien lu les communiqués de presse qui m’avaient été envoyés. Je savais que les endroits étaient sécurisés et j’avais confiance en l’agence qui m’avait contactée pour le test. De ce côté, j’étais tout à fait zen. Nino moins. Cont…Read full original article…

Naked truth about naturism: Meet some of the people who love to strip off
Elland naturism club bares all for the first time

A naturist club revealed all this weekend when its members opened up for its first ever open day to mark The Great British Skinny Dip.

And no matter how many times you tell yourself that it is the most natural thing in the world it’s still hard not to feel at least slightly startled by the sight of stark naked men discussing Town’s chances against Southampton over a game of pool while their equally naked wives enjoy a cuppa and a chat.

Dieses Pärchen reist nackt um die Welt
„Hallo, wir sind Nick und Lins, ein belgisches Pärchen in ihren frühen 30ern, das es liebt die Welt zu bereisten. Seit einigen Jahren haben wir eine neue Art des Reisens entdeckt: Die nackte Art. Wir laden dich ein, deine Klamotten abzulegen und mit uns zu kommen!“ – so stellt das junge Paar sich auf seinem Blog vor. TRAVELBOOK haben sie von ihrer ungewöhnlichen Art zu Reisen erzählt.

Nick und Lins sind zwei sehr sympathische Menschen. Lins ist 31, arbeitete als HR-Managerin und trotz ihres nackten Körpers ist ihr fröhliches Lächeln das erste, was einem ins Auge sticht, wenn man sich die Bilder auf ihrem Instagram-Account ansieht. Nick ist vier Jahre älter, arbeitete als IT-System-Administrator und wirkt, als könne man mit ihm verdammt viel Spaß haben. Beide kündigten kürzlich ihre Jobs, um den tristen Büroalltag gegen das Leben unterwegs einzutauschen – so oft es geht nackt natürlich. Auf ihrem Blog „Naked Wanderings“ berichtet das Paar von seinem Backpackerleben fernab von kneifenden Unterhosen, Bräunungsstreifen und Outfit-Fauxpas.

Warum nackt?

Wie sie auf die Idee kamen nackt zu Reisen? „Wir lieben den FKK-Lifestyle und sind leidenschaftliche Reisende. Den Schritt, dies miteinander zu kombinieren war also naheliegend. In gewissen Teilen der Welt, besonders Europa, den USA und Australien gibt es so viele Reisemöglichkeiten für Nudisten, die wir unbedingt selbst entdecken wollten“, verrät das Paar TRAVELBOOK. Zu dem Entschluss, über ihre Erfahrungen zu bloggen kamen sie, also ihnen bei einer Recherche auffiel, wie wenig Informationen das Internet für Nudisten bereithält und dass viele Seiten viel zu altmodisch waren. Sie wollten den Nudismus auch online salonfähig machen und zeigen, wie normal es eigentlich ist, gemeinsam nackt zu sein. Cont…Read full original article…

Research Study Shows How Naturism Improves Body Image, Self-Esteem and Life Satisfaction

At last, we have an actual research study about naturism and its positive effects on body image and happiness!

The research was published online in the Journal of Happiness Studies on January 21st. It set out to investigate the “possible psychological benefits of naturism.” As the author notes, naturists have long been making claims about how naturism improves self-esteem, body image, happiness and has many other benefits.

Hénansal. Un camping naturiste en projet
Bertrand Pilard, déjà propriétaire de deux campings à Saint-Jacut, veut ouvrir un camping naturiste à Hénansal, à quelques kilomètres de la plage du Lourtuais, à Erquy (22). Si les autorisations arrivent, il pourrait ouvrir au printemps 2018.

« J’ai grandi dans un camping ; mon père tenait celui des Hotieux à Saint-Jacut-de-la-mer. Aujourd’hui, j’ai repris le flambeau et depuis 2006, je suis aussi propriétaire du camping de la Presqu’île à Saint-Jacut. Naturiste depuis 16 ans, Bertrand Pilard, avait à coeur d’ouvrir un camping pour les personnes qui souhaitent vivre nu. Pour l’instant, il n’en existe qu’un dans les Côtes-d’Armor, à Bourseul. « Cela faisait très longtemps que je cherchais un emplacement du côté de la plage du Lourtuais, une très belle plage naturiste, bien surveillée et bien gérée par la commune d’Erquy. Je suis alors tombé par hasard sur le site de la Bonnais, une ancienne ferme qui accueillait un camping et une auberge et fermée depuis 2011. Il fallait aussi l’accord de la commune d’Hénansal et du maire qui m’a accueilli à bras ouverts ». Sur ce point, il reste quelques autorisations à obtenir et en particulier une modification du Plan local d’urbanisme intercommunal avec Lamballe Terre et Mer. Cette question doit d’ailleurs êre aborder dans quelques semaines en septembre.

Bertrand Pilard, 48 ans, est déjà propriétaire de deux campings à Saint-Jacut-de-la-mer et naturiste depuis 16 ans.

Une piscine couverte en vue
Acheté il y a environ deux ans, le site, d’environ 5 hectares, est en plein travaux. Car Bertrand Pilard ne manque pas d’ambition pour ce nouveau projet qui lui tient vraiment à coeur. L’ancien corps de ferme, qui doit être rénové, pourrait dans les mois qui viennent pourrait abriter un restaurant, un bar, une salle de réception avec une cuisine pour les groupes, mais aussi une salle de jeux. « Je vais aussi construire une piscine couverte avec des jeux aquatiques, ainsi qu’une paillote avec une fausse plage de sable », précise Bertrand Pilard. Côté hébergement, difficile de connaître la capacité exacte. Néanmoins, le gérant du futur camping prévoit des chalets, des emplacements pour des mobilhomes, des caravanes, des tentes et tout un aménagement paysager pour embellir les cinq hectares. « Il y aura également quatre chambres à louer dans la longère », précise-t-il.

Vecinos de Vera emigran a otras playas por la suciedad del agua de baño
En una reunión mantenida en el Consistorio en presencia del alcalde Félix López, Veraplayazul abordó la necesidad de dar solución a la presencia de “burbujas y manchas” en el agua de baño a lo largo de los 7 kilómetros de playas, incluida la de Marina Bolaga, que tiene bandera azul. La asociación insta al Ayuntamiento a sumarse a su denuncia por vertidos residuales al mar.

Veraplayazul anima al alcalde de Vera, Félix López, a denunciar los episodios de suciedad que sufren los bañistas, detectar su origen y reclamar una solución. En la última reunión celebrada en el Ayuntamiento de Vera, la asociación vecinal alertó al regidor y a sus empresas municipales y contratas, sobre “los vertidos que siguen ensuciando, con burbujas y verdil, el agua de baño cada mediodía y que son especialmente visibles durante las tardes”, explican en un comunicado.

Los miembros de Veraplayazul incidieron en que más allá de los análisis que muestran que el agua es apta y de la capacidad de depuración de las instalaciones de Vera, son múltiples los vecinos que emigran a otras playas por la suciedad del agua. “Si el origen no está en Vera, habrá que determinar de dónde viene y cuál es la causa de las burbujas y las manchas, aunque nosotros estamos convencidos de que proceden de la deficiente depuradora de Villaricos y de los emisarios de Cuevas de la Almanzora”, manifiesta Miguel Jurado, presidente de Veraplayazul, antes de invitar al alcalde a sumarse a la denuncia pública de lo que constituye el principal hándicap de la campaña turística en la población.
