Getting naked in Messinia, Greece

As the end of the summer, and thus the end if the naturist season as well, in Greece was fastly approching, we had to evaluate our options for the next ten to fifteen days. Our main plan was actually to head north, in the direction of Thessaloniki and try our luck for finding some last Greek nude beaches over there, but then our eye fell on an entry in our Google search saying Kalokeri Villas. Well, it was mostly the word “villas” that got our intention because we had no idea what “Kalokeri” means (meanwhile we know that it means “summer holiday”) and a villa was a type of accommodation that we still had to cross from our list.

So we went back the same way we had come only weeks ago, we’d been to north Peloponnese, east and south-east Peloponnese, but for some unexplainable reason we never considerd visiting the south-west of the peninsula. Until now. Continued…Read full original article…

Will Tyagarah remain a clothes-optional beach?

Getting rid of sex pests and other inappropriate behaviour is the main issue for everyone including residents, councillors, naturists and other beach users at the clothes-optional beach in Tyagarah and the surrounding area including the tea-tree lakes. How to respond to the situation is being debated at the upcoming Byron Shire Council meeting this Thursday, October 26 where councillor Paul Spooners has put forward a notice of motion (NoM) to remove the status of the clothes-optional beach at Tyagarah.

Local Tyagarah resident of 21 years Gwen Gould supported the beach being declared clothes optional in 1998 and continues to today but recognises that there are many issues with the area.

‘I swim down there naked all the time,’ said Gwen.

‘I’m 76 and I love to go down there and swim naked but I have been harassed so many times. So often you have to deal with theses aggressive, offensive people. I’m really conflicted. I love the freedom but I hate the hassle.’ Continued…Read full original article…

Byron’s clothing optional beach gets a reprieve

In a move that has given hope to both Tyagarah residents and naturists, Byron Shire Council today (Thursday, October 25) resolved to continue to allow nude bathing on a reduced stretch of Tyagarah Beach, starting 200 metres south of Grays Lane and ending well north of Elements Resort.

The amendment by Cr Basil Cameron, to Cr Paul Spooner’s original motion to close the beach to naturists completely, was carried with the support of Greeens councillors Michael Lyon, Jeanette Martin and Sarah Ndiyae, together with independent Cate Coorey.

The motion commits council, after four years of inaction, to erect signage on the beach within two weeks indicating exactly where the clothing optional section is, and also requires council to review the situation again in three months.

In the meantime, council will liaise with police, naturists and the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) in an attempt to establish whether there is a more suitable alternative for a less remote clothing optional beach in the shire. Continued…Read full original article…

La playa de los Moros, una cala nudista a los pies de Adormideras
Un pequeño arenal entre rocas es utilizado por naturistas desde hace años pese a no tener esa catalogación

En A Coruña no hay ninguna playa nudista. Eso dice la teoría. Pero en la práctica, un pequeño arenar rodeado de rocas junto al barrio de Adormideras tiene como usuarios mayoritarios a personas naturistas. Durante estas semanas de buen tiempo y días festivos esta cala se ha masificado, ante la mirada curiosa de quienes pasean por el parque de los menhires.

C.A.L.

La zona es conocida como playa de los Moros, en clara referencia al cementerio musulmán reconvertido en la Casa de las Palabras, un punto de encuentro multicultural que permanece cerrado. El arenal tiene una longitud de 25 metros y una anchura de 15 metros hasta el mar.

Varios residentes en la zona no son capaces de concretar el momento exacto en el que la cala fue tomada por naturistas. Unos dices que, hace «un par de años», apenas se veían. Continued…Read full original article…

Getting naked on Paros, Greece

From our Naked Wanderings Cyclade Islands Basecamp on Antiparos it was only a fifteen minute ferry ride to the neighboring and much bigger island Paros. So on a nice Sunday morning we woke up early, walked to the scooter rental shop, went through some useless price negotiations and ended up with a black and blue 50cc beast.

Only minutes later we embarked on the ferry with high expectations. If we had been able to find such a nice range of nudie places on a small island like Antiparos, what would it be on its bigger brother?
We have to warn you, this is not a happy story. Continued…Read full original article…

A prude’s guide to baring all
The debrief: from nudist beaches to Hollywood waxes, is it ever possible to feel comfortable getting naked in front of a fully dressed stranger? Self-confessed prude Catherine Hufton investigates

There’s no beating around the bush (no pun intended) but I’m a self-diagnosed prude. I always have been, always will be. On my first girl’s holiday to Newquay as a teen, my very confident friends decided to skinny dip in the sea after several bottles of Lambrini. I stood on the sand with my arms crossed feeling completely at odds. ‘What the hell is wrong with you – get in!’ they screamed as their boobs bobbed up and down in the dirt-grey water. ‘I’ll just stay here and watch the bags,’ I yelled back. ‘It’s way too cold for me!’. 15 years later and I remain the prude of the group, the one they’ve never seen naked. Ever.

As a grown woman, I’d like to say that I’m not quite as frigid as I used to be, but the thought of many everyday beauty treatments still brings me out in a cold sweat. I’ve never had a spray tan, and still have nightmares about a Brazilian wax I got a few years ago. A massage is about the best I can do. Am I alone? Turns out I’m not. I spoke to a few fellow prudes about their own experiences of baring all, while turning to the beauty experts for tips on losing one’s inhibitions. Cont…Read full original article…

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.

Nudists, Don’t run away!

We’ll sketch you a scene here: A beautiful Tuesday afternoon , there’s a beach on Antiparos, one of the amazing Cyclade islands in Greece. The sun is high in the sky, the water is in different shades of blue and the soft sands are calling to put down your towel.

The reason why you picked this beach and not one of the many others on the island is because it’s one of the only official nudist beaches in all of Greece and once you got to the place you were happy to see the sign saying “official nudist beach since the seventies”. When you looked a bit further a more unpleasant sight caught your attention… Textiles.

So you walk down the beach, past the hordes of textiles, spotting a single nudist here and there and you wonder “what happened?”. Until you pass a dune and there, in a small secluded area where the beach is more rocky and less shady you’ll find the nudists. Packed together.

Does this sound familiar?

Unfortunately, to many of you it must do. Based on the reactions we often get when we write the 724th blog post in favour of clothing optional. Many nudies have the idea that textiles are taking over their beaches, chasing us away or into a corner. Cont…Read full original article…

The Young Nudists of Australia are bringing naked mini golf to Sydney
A GROUP of young Aussies are trying to show that naturism isn’t just for old folks. A Sydneysider is leading the charge.

THINK of nudists and you might conjure an image of jiggly, leathery old folks playing volleyball.
But Sydneysider Matt O has made it his mission to change that. He and a few friends founded the Young Nudists of Australia in 2016, with the aim of introducing 18-40 year olds to benefits of getting together, and getting nude.

Hitting up a nude beach in Sydney is a popular activity for the YNOA.

The group quickly amassed a membership of over 350 people interested in exploring the nudist lifestyle.
Matt says being nude is a “hugely empowering and liberating experience” and one of the greatest equalisers in modern-day society.

“I’m healthy but not overly skinny but if anybody thinks only physically stunning people try naturism, one visit to a nude beach or resort and they will see that isn’t true.

“Once I realised that myself, it makes you feel so much better about yourself. Nobody is judging you, nobody is critiquing you and that just makes you feel so accepted. That feeling of acceptance is why I love it. Cont…Read full original article…

Españolas hacen más “topless” y nudismo que mujeres de otros grandes países

Las españolas son las mujeres que practican con más frecuencia “topless” y nudismo en la playa entre las ciudadanas de ocho grandes países, según un estudio del instituto demoscópico francés Ifop difundido hoy.

El sondeo se realizó por internet entre los pasados 6 y 9 de junio en Italia, España, Francia, Alemania, Holanda, Reino Unido, Estados Unidos y Canadá, entre una muestra de unas 1.000 mujeres en cada país con edades a partir de 18 años.

El 49 % de las españolas afirmó haberse desnudado de cintura para arriba en al menos una ocasión en la playa, seguidas por las alemanas (41 %) y las holandesas (35 %), de acuerdo con la encuesta, elaborada para la página web francesa de pornografía PLAISX. 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…

Nudists Protest for the beach “Dolphin” in Bulgaria

Nudists and campers protest against the management of beach “Dolphin”, which has performed serious violations of its contract while preparing the beach for the summer season.

Nudists and campers are protesting in front of the Bulgarian Ministry of Tourism in order to protect one of the last natural beaches left in Bulgaria. According to the protestors, the firm concessionaire of the beach has performed series of legal violations which contradict the concession contract. It was demanded by the protestors that the contract between the ministry and the company “Tiva International” be ended immediately.

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…
