“Dutch people want to be naked in the sauna”
Amersfoort: Every year, around 1.8 million Dutch people go to the sauna. Despite the fact that people have been entering the sauna naked for hundreds of years, more and more wellness complexes offer a swimwear day in the Netherlands.

Does this mean that the Netherlands is going to waste? Not according to the branch organization. ” With swimwear days, the wellness resorts tap into a large new target group of people who want to relax, but feel reluctant to do so. Ultimately, many swimwear wearers switch to a bare sauna visit. ”

Most swimwear visitors come to see others not seeing them without clothes, although some women find it acceptable if this is with women. Bare Simply! – interest group for nude recreationists – notices that people who spend more time recreating naked start feeling more positive about their own body. Especially seeing other naked people reinforces that positive self-image. Because ‘the perfect body’ that is often shown in the (social) media is rarely found in real life. Almost everyone has something that he feels insecure about.

A large survey among 1,300 Dutch sauna visitors shows that only 17 percent of them visit such a bathing suit day in the sauna. About half of these sometimes go naked into the sauna, the other half only go to the sauna with bathing suits. The research shows that visitors to swimwear days are mostly relatively young people and people for whom a sauna visit is relatively new; they are visitors for whom going naked to the sauna is too big a step. Almost half of the wellness resorts in the Netherlands respond to the swimsuit wish.

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…

Bloot op tv is gewoon, en toch is de Nederlandse tv preutser geworden
Op 9 oktober 1967 was voor het eerst een blote vrouw te zien op tv. Twee borsten kwamen zomaar de huiskamers binnen. Vele primeurs volgden, en vijftig jaar later kijkt niemand op of om wanneer een naakt lijf in beeld verschijnt. En toch is de Nederlandse televisie preutser geworden.

Het eerste naakt

Verscholen achter een opengeslagen krant verschijnt een vrouw in beeld. ‘Phil Bloom’, spellen de letters op het scherm haar naam. Twee over elkaar geslagen blote benen piepen onder het papier uit, erboven beweegt een paar zwaar opgemaakte ogen over een nieuwsbericht.

“De VPRO zet schaar in naakt van Phil”, klinkt de stem van de vrouw. “Fotomodel Phil Bloom komt 9 oktober niet naakt op de televisieschermen.” Nadat beelden uit de tweede aflevering van het tv-programma ‘Hoepla!’ zijn uitgelekt, waarop de kunstenares in evakostuum reacties op aflevering één voorleest uit Trouw, hebben de omroepbonzen de uitzending volgens het artikel verboden.

Toch is Bloom die negende oktober 1967 in menig huiskamer te zien. Met een stalen gezicht leest ze het bericht uit. Dan vouwt ze de krant dicht, waarmee alsnog een stel blote borsten en dijen achter het papier vandaan komen: een wereldwijde primeur voor de televisie. Continued…Read full original article…

Techno festival on nude beach Zandvoort (NL) may continue, the local Christian party tried to prevent it but failed
Techno on a nudist beach…

A techno feast on the usually so peaceful nude beach? The local CDA (Christian party) in Zandvoort tried to prevent it.

The party submitted questionnaires regarding the requested license for the Loveland Beach festival. The festival would inconvenience and would not match the character of the nude beach, which is a nature reserve. Cont…Read full original article…

The best weekend of our life, our first mini-vacation together!

Wow people, what an amazing weekend did we have. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, we visited the island Vlieland. And even though we thought weather would be crap ( it was when we left our home ), we actually had sun all weekend!

Harmen

We arrived around 8.30am at the port of Harlingen and 30 minutes later the ferry left main land behind us. It’s about a 1,5 hour trip with the ferry to Vlieland. Because our hotel was only 1,5 kilometer from the port of Vlieland, we decided to walk instead of renting some bicycles. Our feet regret that decision very much haha. We walked a lot this weekend. Well… a lot for us, people that don’t walk a lot. But I’m very sure that we walked at least 20 kilometers this weekend.

Anyhow, we arrived at the hotel and even though check-in usually is around 3 pm, we had the luxury to enter our room immediately. Because this weekend was for just the two of us and no kids were with us, Santana had to collect her breastmilk, otherwise her breasts would explode! Luckily the people at the hotel were nice enough to offer her some room in the fridge to keep it fresh enough to bring home for Jaxson. So thumbs up for that. Cont…Read full original article…
