France is the world’s leading nudist tourist destination with 3.5 million regular practitioners flocking to spots reserved for those willing to go au naturel every year, according to the French Naturist Federation.
And while 1.5 million of them are French, a whopping two million foreigners come to France each year to practice naturism. And there are an increasing number of British naturists heading to France for a naked holiday.
So if you’ve been flirting with the idea of baring all — or perhaps you’re just looking to try something new — now might be a good time to become one with nature. Continued…Read full original article…
One of the main reasons why we started this project is to show the world that naturists are not some strange dark commune but that actually everyone could be one… Or could enjoy being one if they took the first step.
Our main example of “everyone” is of course ourselves, we write posts about naturism in general but also about our own experiences. But some of you might be thinking “Yes sure, those two are probably just the strange kids in the block…” (nah, we know you’re not thinking that about us, but we’re trying to write an introduction here). So we decided to let other naturists have a word as well.
Det är det bästa valet bland lokala naturister tack vare den pittoreska Magelungen sjön, liten mysig sandstrand, fin grön gräsmatta omgiven av träd. Det finns också grundläggande bekvämligheter som dusch och picknickbord. Kolla runt bara, så hittar du en bra plats för dig själv, antingen bredvid andra människor eller i ett lugnt hörn.
Den plana gräsmattan är utmärkt för att sola, naturligtvis men det skulle också vara perfekt för många aktiviteter, som volleyboll eller fotboll, yoga, kampsport och whatnot. Synd att lokala naturister verkade inte nytta av detta. Jag lärde min lokala värd, som jag fick veta tack vare TrueNudists nätverk, några grunder av akro-yoga. Vi kan bara drömma om att ha något liknande i New York City! Det var några personer som simmade och i slutet av maj var vattnet tillräckligt varmt för det redan. Continued…Read full original article…
The naked body is as old as humanity. But nudism as a social form, organised into clubs and societies, only came of age in England in the 1920s. Its practitioners were from a range of backgrounds and included those with interests in “physical culture” (today we would refer to this as body building and beauty contests). Many were interested in natural health, including vegetarian and raw food diets, and new exercise regimes from hiking to yoga.
Nudism was particularly embraced by artists and intellectuals as part of a wider set of progressive practices associated with free thought. Many were internationalists inspired by longer standing German nudist traditions, which were far more popular and organised on a larger scale than English efforts. They understood disrobing to be part of a wider ideal of physical, mental and spiritual liberation. Continued…Read full original article…
Byron Shire Councillors voted at last Thursday’s meeting to continue a trial of changed conditions at the shire’s only official nude beach at Tyagarah but emphasised there was no guarantee the beach would remain clothing optional in the longer term
A spokesperson for the local naturist group told public access that the current trial, which was originally slated for three months but has continued for five, had been a success in clearing out seamy sex abusers whose presence on the beach had increasingly riled beachgoers and local residents.
She called for the beach’s clothing optional status to be confirmed, following the erection of signage, daily police patrols and a range of initiatives by her group. Continued…Read full original article…
Almost 20 years to the day since Byron celebrated an historic Nude Ain’t Rude rally on Belongil beach, local activists and nature lovers are asking if it’s time to hold another.
The call follows the arrest of four people in just a few weeks for swimming naked in a quiet area of beach well south of Brunswick Heads but outside Byron Council’s (recently reduced) official clothing optional area.
Dean Jefferys told Echonetdaily he took his three-month old daughter to the rally, which was held on Australia Day 1998, not long after having a fine for offensive behavior quashed by the courts. Continued…Read full original article…
As I’ve hinted at before in this column, there’s something intensely liberating about being alone in a foreign country with no one but each other to worry about.
My wife and I are free to be who we want to be and, indeed, free to be who we’d like to be. There are none of the restraints you find in normal social situations, where the company of friends demands a certain conformity and you are scared of ‘letting your hair down’ for fear that someone you know might be watching.
Austrians have taken the title of ‘Most Likely to Go Nude at a Beach’ from the Germans, in a naked wrestling match no-one wanted to see, with a quarter of the country saying they have stripped off in public on vacation at some point in their lives.
Although many consider Austrians to be a formal and rather conservative people, the extent of nudity in Austrian culture may surprise the visitor to Austria.
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…
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…
