BadeLand Wolfsburg – My first experience of a German Sauna

Until you’ve sweated it out in a full-on German sauna, you can’t really claim to be a proper sauna aficionado. Happily it’s an experience I can now tick off my bucket list, courtesy of a free morning while on a work trip to Wolfsburg in Lower Saxony.

Wolfsburg is of course the home of Volkswagen, and the famous VW logo is everywhere in this city. A little research identified BadeLand (www.badeland-wolfsburg.de), a waterpark with separate adjoining sauna area as a suitable facility. Located on the River Aller, it’s within walking distance (25-30 minutes) of the iconic Volkswagen factory with its four chimney stacks dating back to 1938, as well as Volkswagen’s Autostadt museum and customer centre which is well worth a visit. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel is located next door to BadeLand for anyone looking for a convenient place to stay.

The fact that BadeLand’s website is in German only caused a few reservations about whether I would have problems finding my way around, but the helpful lady at the desk explained in perfect English that a half day entry fee of €16.20 would allow unlimited access to both the pool area and the sauna area. If you need towels, they are €2 each, and flip-flops are also recommended – I brought my own. You do need to have swimwear to use the pool side, whereas the sauna area is textile free.

At check-in you are given a wristwatch type sensor that allows access to the various areas, as well as locking your chosen locker and recording any drinks or other items you purchase in the bar area.

Changing facilities for the sauna area are unisex, though there is also a dedicated female changing area. So it was off with the clothes, and with a towel wrapped around me, into the fray. Continued…Read full original article…

Skin stories: The nude
On an evolutionary level, the human species lost much of its body hair. Thus, the dress, when initially officiating as a cover before the cold, became a focus of cultural aspects not only in reference to fashion, but also in what has to do with “covering” our nakedness, at least in large part West.

A nudity that is conceived only in terms of whether the genitals, buttocks and breasts are visible at the public level, while other parts of the body such as face, legs, feet, arms, hands, back, etc. They can be exhibited to people without major problems depending on the contexts, since it is not the same to be in a bathing suit on a beach than in a museum.

The nude can have an erotic, artistic, spiritual-religious, medical, political, aesthetic, etc. But the sacred value or rather “tabuizado” that is granted, would make the nakedness refer to the authentic, to the external expression of the inner being. To something essential, pure or profound.

On the other hand, the nude would appeal to privacy, to the vulnerability of someone, to the expression of something of the order of the private, which if exhibited without the consent of others in public spaces, may even constitute a “violent attack on modesty”.

It should be noted that Greek antiquity exalted nudity as an ideal of beauty, and that the valuation of the nude is traced back to prehistory, as evidenced by the statue called ” Venus de Willendorf “. Just as many cultures outside the West have never felt the need to “cover” their bodies.

However, the Judeo-Christian tradition through its myth of origin, homologated the original sin committed to access knowledge through disobedience to the deity, with the blame for the nudity resulting from having lost the innocence for pretending “To know”, to which the tradition generalized in a knowledge on the sexual thing.

The older, the nuder.
Interesting how things can change in a moment.

When I first thought of the title for a new post (this one: the older, the nuder), I had an idea where this was going. Until I started investigating the idea, which made me see things in a much different way. Let me tell you what I thought and what I’ve learnt!

My initial idea was that, when people get older they get less flexible. I’ve seen it everywhere and still do. I’ve seen it with my parents too.

That brought me to the conclusion that older people should stay nude more for the simple reason that putting on clothes requires some agility, and since older people have that less and less, not having to put on clothes would make life easier for them. Are you with me so far? Sounds logical, doesn’t it? Continued…Read full original article…

Wonderful reasons to start as a nudist

If you think about it, compared to other hobbies getting naked for fun is a pretty weird thing to do. So why are there so many weird people undressing for fun and talking about it? What could possibly motivate these people to get together with a bunch of random folks and strip down just for fun? Maybe to just be different? Or maybe they are simply being strange? Everyone has their own explanation for it, but it’s certainly not a logical hobby. But hobbies like drinking alcohol and smoking are illogical as well and don’t make a lot of sense, and yet millions of people still do these activities daily.

Nudists are no different, except that there are no unhealthy benefits. In fact, as we’ll see, it’s quite the opposite. Let’s start with the intellectual benefits.

If you ask a serious nudist to define the most important benefit from being naked, the first answer he or she would give is the sense of freedom and liberation (which I would fully agree with!). There is nothing comparable to start undressing your clothes and expose your body to the elements of nature; to feel the sun and a slight summer breeze on your body.

The first time when you get naked outside in nature is the best experience ever but the feeling never leaves you, no matter how long you remain a nudist. Combining your bare body with nature is a magical sense of release, especially in the constrained world we live in today where it’s increasingly challenging to find a true sense of freedom. Nudism provides us all with a simple path to authentic liberation. Continued…Read full original article…

How to stay nudist during winter?
As the colder day arrived, one of the most questions I receive in my mail is: “How to stay nudist during winter?” I am not the queen of nudism, and I can´t give you some rules you have to obey, but I can share with you how am I dealing with winter and give you some ideas.

If you have a home where you can be nude all day, it is a win. You can call over your nudist friends and have a party, play some games or have a nice dinner and enjoy the nudist company. But, not all nudists are so lucky. Some of them live with families that don´t like nudism and therefore can’t be naked all day long in the comfort of their warm home. So, if you are one of them you have to get out.

If you can’t enjoy nudism in your own home, or you just want to socialize with fellow nudists, you can research nude clubs and restaurant near you and enjoy there for the whole day or just for a few hours.

There are many nudist resorts all over the world, so I am sure you will find some close to you to go for a fantastic nudist getaway. Most of them near where I live are open only during the summer months, but there are some that are more indoor-oriented and therefore open all year long. Continued…Read full original article…

‘How I set up a nudist retreat after losing $500K retirement savings’

Retirement should be a time to relax and enjoy the proceeds of a hard-working life – but for some, it can come with some major money pitfalls that can result in devastating financial ruin.

While many retirees in that situation may choose to work for longer or lean on family to get by, one man completely changed his lifestyle in a drastic move to regain some of his lost savings – and he’s never been happier.

Rainer Mueckenberger turned his life around after facing financial ruin.
Rainer Mueckenberger turned his life around after facing financial ruin. Rainer Mueckenberger.

Rainer Mueckenberger, 69, lost $500,000 of his retirement savings when a scheme he had invested in fell through, forcing him to sell up properties and move to a new state for a fresh start.

Refusing to let the financial blow defeat him, he instead took his remaining savings and slowly built up his own nudist retreat, offering sensual getaways for couples and friends from across the world on the Sunshine Coast. Continued…Read full original article…

The wealth of being in nudity
Hey. You.

Yes. You. Do you like being nude? Do you like being among other nude people? Yes? If so, do you know how wealthy you are?

Really. I’m not kidding. I’m convinced that people like you and I are among the emotionally wealthiest folks around. The most mentally mature too in ways. Because we know people. Real people.

Nude people. Surprising? Hardly, I’d say. Nudists and naturists have overcome the ‘problems’ that so many people in this world have with skin, with a proper body. We know how real people look. We don’t need Photoshop to look our unattainable best either. All we need to do it take off our clothes and there we are. Our naked best.

The more time I spend in the nude, either alone or with others, the more I am surprised how being this way can ever be a problem. Of course, we all know it is because of the big brainwash that is advertisement, crazy body ideals that will never be possible, and the general fear of nudity as proclaimed by many forms of religion and other groups.
