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. Realistically there is alot of mental illness out there that this event could trigger/effect. Continued…Read full original article…

A Matter of Principle or Cutting off my nose to spite my face

Today was supposed to be my first Naturist swim at our local pool. The group organizer on Facebook contacted us to say that the pool double booked with another naturist group.

Normally this might not have been an issue but as I know the other group and their principles, I opted not to go feigning the onset of a cold.

Why would I deny myself a chance to go skinny dipping you ask? Well, you see, I once tried to join this other group only to be refused membership because I was a single male naturist. Their reasoning? They want an equal men to women ratio and said I could join if I brought a female companion. What a load of *%#! Continued…Read full original article…

Kate said she wanted to see if she was “brave enough to immerse herself” in the world of artist Natasha Brooks, who regularly swims naked.

Describing her nude dip, she said: “There’s that middle bit where it creeps over your thigh.
“I can’t speak because it’s so cold.”

The Springwatch host has previously revealed her fondness for sunbathing naked in her French holiday home and claims she once danced naked in the desert with her husband. Continued…Read full original article…

Blotebillenduik Twiske warm en druk! (filmpje)
Natuurlijk hebben wij elkaar klokslag twaalf vannacht een gelukkig nieuwjaar gewenst, maar eigenlijk begon 2018 pas echt vanmiddag om 14:00 uur.

De traditionele blotebillennieuwjaarsduik In het Baaiegat in ’t Twiske markeerde een genoeglijk fris begin van het jaar dat voor ons ligt.

Wij waren erbij, genoten ervan en zagen dat de opkomst weer groter was dan vorig jaar. Na afloop werd er geproost met glühwein, chocomelk en champagne. Continued…Read full original article…

The Silver Strand in Barna, Co. Galway and Corballis in North County Dublin also make it into the top five.

Brittas Bay is said to be one of the best naturist beaches on the east coast and is very popular with nudists.

The main beach is clothes only and attracts campers and caravans at the weekend and during peak holiday season. Continued…Read full original article…

Balance de playas-temporada 2017

Fieles a nuestra cita anual y una vez finalizada la amplia temporada(mayo-octubre), volvemos con nuestro balance que en esta ocasión alcanza su tercera edición. Aparte de las fichas específicas de cada playa(que acompañamos junto a cada una de ellas), a través de la actualización post temporada os traemos la actualidad que acontece en cada una de ellas.

En cuanto a lo meteorológico, podemos decir que ha sido una temporada más o menos normal, principalmente en cuanto al viento de levante se refiere, sobre todo si la comparamos con la temporada anterior donde constituyó una clara incomodidad, soplando con las ganas que lo hace algunas temporadas y que como decimos en esta nos ha respetado.

Aunque en todas las localizaciones promocionadas por nosotros no existe problema alguno de masificación o incomodidad, bien es verdad que el tráfico sigue siendo un problema en cuanto al acceso y aparcamiento, sobre todo los fines de semana en las playas de Bolonia y Cañuelo, llegándose incluso a cortar el acceso desde el cruce de la carretera N-340. Y es que la fama de Tarifa tiene sus consecuencias, aunque solo sea en la práctica entre el 20 de julio y el 20 de agosto. Por estos motivos nosotros no contabilizamos ninguna visita a Cañuelo y Bolonia en todo el mes de agosto. Continued…Read full original article…

Why this man thinks more people in Devon should get naked
“There are times when clothing is uncomfortable and unnecessary – nudity is often far more practical.”

A national advocate for open nudity has spoken about why he thinks the attitude to being naked needs to change.

Peter Wright, 64, a legal volunteer for the British Naturism group, got in touch after reading several stories about naked people on DevonLive last week.

They included reports of a man spotted walking naked down Exeter High Street and a couple who were caught having sex in a field in Holsworthy.

But Peter has told devonlive.com that he believes public nudity should be more acceptable. Continued…Read full original article…

5 Tips For Going Nude In Greece
If you’ve been following us via this blog or on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter during the last months, you probably noticed that we’ve spent a lot of time in Greece. A real necessity, even if we only wanted to get the slightest impression of the country. When you look at the country on the map, it doesn’t seem very big. Its size is roughly the same as Austria and Switzerland combined and a bus ride from one side to the other rarely takes more than several hours. What people tend to forget (well, at least we did) is that Greece has over 6000 islands. It’s like the Japan of Europe, but with better options for the nudies.

We don’t want to call ourselves a reference for nudism in Greece, even though we’ve spent a lot of time in the country, we know that we’ve only seen a fraction of it. But from our experiences we’re sure that we can give you some valuable tips when it comes to getting naked.

Embrace clothing optional

Although Greece is a popular holiday destination for nudists, it doesn’t have a decent nudist organisation or any nudist clubs and only a handful of nudist resorts, villas or camps. So if you only like to be naked among the nude, your options are limited to one of those places. Even though one could easily spend two weeks inside Vassaliki resort and wish there were two weeks more to come, you’ll miss out on a lot of the fun. Continued…Read full original article…

Hiding Our Nudity

I’ve written about modesty in the past and with all the sex abuse scandals popping up in the media I have to wonder how this might affect Naturists in the future? I fear that naturism will be labelled even more shameful than it currently is and soon there will no longer be any safe haven for us.

I re-posted a blog from Clothesfreelife.com regarding an article in the Montreal Gazette that they do not want nudity in changing rooms at a public pool in Brossard near Montreal. I still can’t believe that society has such a hang up with nudity and could this be the tipping point that spells the end of body freedom? The article stated that many changing rooms in the future will be gender inclusive with separate stalls for changing and showering and will thus eliminate nudity altogether.

John brought up an interesting point as I was discussing the issue of the pool in Montreal and he said that there could also be a religious aspect to it that I hadn’t thought of and seeing anyone nude can be offensive to their faith. If that is the case isn’t it like everyone trying to be politically correct by saying Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas? Continued…Read full original article…

My first time : Connie
Our posts ‘My first time’, also published as ‘My nude debut’, has been a popular, if irregular series at SLN, and draw on reports we receive, or commission, as to our readers first experiences of naturism in its broadest sense.

They seem to be like buses 🙂 you wait for ages and two come along at once!

Here’s the first of two recently received reports, the first from Floridian reader Connie, about her first experiences of skiing dipping in her parents’ pool with a friend and, later in the week, there’ll be another in this ongoing, irregular series, following an inworld conversation I had with an avatar at a naturist sim.

Ella

Hi, I’m Connie, from Vero Beach, Florida. Or I was, 10 years ago as a middle teen. My nudist experience comes from I was living with my Mom in Florida. My parents are divorced and my Dad lives in Tampa now. Mom still lives in Vero Beach, but I’m now resident in Kissimmee after university there, finding a job after university and then marrying. I’m 25 now and the proud Mom of my own baby son. About 10 years ago, I was 15 going 16, my parents split up and Dad moved away. It was an amicable divorce and Mom got the house, complete with pool. At the time my Mom was young enough to think about dating again (she eventually married a boyfriend she met in that time) so used to go out every Friday night. I was pretty young, but she had enough faith in me for me to be at home if I had a friend over for a sleepover most Fridays.

Olivia would come over and stay until Saturday lunchtime when Mom drove her home, so we’d go home from school on a Friday afternoon, Mom would fix us some food, and we’d change into our bikinis and laze by the pool.

The sun would go down but it’s Florida, still warm enough to sit out in a bikini until midnight and beyond it you want to in the summer months.. Which was what we did. We’d put on some music, order a pizza or light up the BBQ, cook some food and chill. We’d swim a bit. Continued…Read full original article…

As Nature Intended – an insight by a female first time naturist

Naturism, nudism…it seemed the same to me. I couldn’t tell you the difference between the two concepts. I never thought of it beyond stereotypes: something done by “eccentric” people, somehow related to exhibitionism, and mostly done by men.

However, some time ago a friend told me about naturism, how she became a member of Irish Naturist Association and how much she enjoyed naturist outings and being in contact with nature, as nature intended. She also told me how popular naturism is in some Central European countries, how naturism is practiced by families plus the benefits for children as they learn to appreciate and accept their own bodies and other people’s bodies, apart from sexual connotations, in a respectful environment. Talking to her inspired a genuine curiosity in me and I felt that I should try, at least try.

However, I always told her that my preference would be to experience naturism in a warmer location than Ireland. I am quite a shivery/chilly person, and the idea of going nude in Ireland was inconceivable for me. I have never worn sandals or shorts in Ireland and I’m always fully wrapped up. Of course, I have never dipped my feet in the Irish Sea, despite the insistence of my children. I have always been a little envious of people swimming throughout the whole year in places such as Seapoint or the Forty Foot.

A few days ago, my friend invited me to join a naturist group of people to go to the beach. As this was likely to be the last sunny and warm day of the year, I did not want to miss this opportunity. So finally, I postponed my commitments and decided to join, ready for my first nudist experience. Continued…Read full original article…

El pleno focense debatirá el jueves la práctica del nudismo en las playas
El BNG presenta una moción para que se retire el bando editado en verano al entender que una norma local no puede solapar una europea. El alcalde dice que hay un arenal autorizado

El verano se está extendiendo como nunca en la comarca y no solo en lo metereológico, pues motiva incluso el debate en la corporación focense, que el próximo jueves, 26 de octubre, abordará la práctica del nudismo en las playas. Lo hará a través de una propuesta del BNG, en la que reclamará que se anule el bando municipal que prohibe esta práctica en todos los arenales del municipio, excepto en Os Alemáns.

«Existe tradición nalgunha das nosas praias da práctica do nudismo e non existe ningunha norma que o impida en todas elas», recalca la portavoz nacionalista, Lorena Seivane, quien alude a que desde la aprobación de la Constitución «non é posible apelación algunha nas nosas leis a consideracións de tipo moral, polo que o dereito ao desnudo dedúcese da Constitución, mais tamén da Carta Europea dos Dereitos Humáns, como así afirma expresamente o Tribunal Europeo», agrega la edil.

Por su parte, el grupo de gobierno ve oportunismo en traer ahora este debate cuando el bando se publicó en agosto. Una medida que se tomó, explica el regidor, Javier Castiñeira, para evitar «situacións puntuais» que se dieron en verano y que generaron cierta controversia con los socorristas, que tendrían así una norma en la que basarse en caso de tener que reclamar a alguien que cesase en su actitud de hacer nudismo.

Despite the hostility, what makes people take up nudism?

Nudism can mean different things to different people. For some, it’s the most natural state of being, a life path. For others, it may be a way to protest, a symbol of transgression, a path to enlightenment, a muse of artistic creation.

But what is it that makes people take to it, despite it being a taboo and a punishable offence in most nations? Continued…Read full original article…
