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.

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

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…

El placer de la desnudez

Nuestra necesidad de absorber el sol por todos los poros de la piel corresponde a una necesidad biológica. …Es una manera de cuidar de nosotros mismos y de honrar este cuerpo que nos ha sido entregado bajo nuestra responsabilidad para que vivamos plenamente nuestra vida terrestre. (France Guillain).

Son muchos los que muestran dificultades en desnudarse en presencia de otras personas. La única razón de esta molestia parece ser la culpabilidad que ha sido inculcada por una educación estricta que considera el cuerpo y los órganos sexuales como algo vergonzoso. Sin embargo, el desnudo aporta muchos beneficios físicos y psicológicos. Es un excelente aprendizaje con el fin de liberarse de la vergüenza, saborear las pequeñas cosas, encontrar más autenticidad en la relación con los demás, desarrollar el respeto y la buena relación con los demás. Igualmente es un sedante de la violencia sexual. Los movimientos naturistas han sido pioneros en esta experiencia armonizadora y liberadora. 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.

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. Cont…Read full original article…

Me quité la ropa y los prejuicios para pasar un día en un camping nudista

Nudismo. Ya está. Solo con escuchar la palabra es casi inevitable que te hayas imaginado una playa con gente en pelotas, seguramente mayor y sin depilar, a la que le gusta exhibirse y mirar a otros haciendo lo mismo. Pero solo tienes que googlear esta palabra para saber que la concepción que tenemos del naturismo, un movimiento mucho más amplio que el nudismo ‘a secas’, no deja de ser un saco de prejuicios. Para mí, como mujer milenial que cada día intenta no juzgar su cuerpo, sigo siendo incapaz de hacer topless si hay algún miembro de mi familia o algún hombre a quien yo conozca y que no sea mi pareja. Así que, pensé, si tanta gente lo hace, mucho de bueno debe tener y yo quiero saber qué es. Y me fui a buscarlo, esta vez completamente desnuda, a uno de esos centros del respeto por el cuerpo y la naturaleza: un camping naturista.

Camping El Templo del Sol
Camping El Templo del Sol

Después de conducir hora y media desde Barcelona hasta L’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Tarragona) mi pareja y yo (a quién llamaré M. en adelante) llegamos a El Templo del Sol, uno de los nueve campings nudistas que hay actualmente en España y que, según me cuenta Ferràn Pujol, su Director de Comunicación, es de los mejor considerados. Ferràn me espera en la entrada para darme la bienvenida, para mi alivio, vestido. Me explica que allí todos los empleados llevan ropa para evitar malentendidos. Así que M. y yo todavía tenemos algunos minutos de margen para ‘enfrentarnos’ a nuestra desnudez pública y a la preocupación que le genera el pensar que va a pasarse todo el día empalmado.

El camping que, por cierto, está tan a tope de gente que no hay ningún bungalow, caravana ni tienda de campaña libre donde podamos pasar la noche, es la ‘torre de vigilancia’ que cuida de la zona. Lo único que la asociación naturista que protege la playa natural de El Torn y sus alrededores permitió construir con el fin de repeler a los rascacielos y los adosados típicos de las costas españolas. A día de hoy, aproximadamente 2.000 personas llenan este complejo, creado hace 25 años por una pareja francesa enamorada del naturismo y la Costa Dorada, y pasan el verano haciendo barbacoas, bañándose en su piscina panorámica y montando en bici. Lo mismo que tú o yo haríamos en un camping, pero en pelotas. Cont…Read full original article…

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…

How Nude Beaches Work

Beaches, for many sand-loving humans, are glorious paradises. Ideal areas to sunbathe, swim, play volleyball or simply hang out – and in some places, let it all hang out. We’re referring, of course, to nude beaches.

Nude beaches are exactly what you think. They’re places where people congregate for typical recreational beach activities, but instead of covering up with bathing suits and towels, everything is on full display.

Let’s settle one critical point straight right away — nude beaches aren’t typically a pornographic hodgepodge of hedonism or voyeurism. They are, quite simply, a lot like regular beaches, only some people are naked instead of clothed. Cont…Read full original article…

‘Sex pests’ spark calls for nude beach relocation at Byron Bay

Byron Bay is renowned as a global destination for free-spirited tourists, but locals say a clothing-optional beach to the town’s north is attracting sexual predators.

Colleen Graham lives at Tyagarah, just off the Pacific Highway in northern New South Wales, and said she could no longer walk through the local nature reserve or along the beach without being confronted or harassed.

“I’ve had a range of encounters. The most common one is lying on my towel reading a book and a naked man moving his towel very close to me and masturbating,” she said. Cont…Read full original article…

12 Progressively bold things to do naked
Being naked feels great, doesn’t it? It’s the way we came into the world, and it’s the way nature intended us to be.

The feel of the sun, wind and water against our bare bodies is so natural and freeing.

The ancient Greeks knew this and celebrated the naked human form, especially when it came to sports and competition. In fact, the word gymnasium comes from the Greek word “gymos,” which literally means naked.

The original Olympic games featured nude athletes running, wrestling, and boxing. In Sparta, even the female athletes competed naked, much to the enjoyment of the Spartan boys who were allowed to watch.

We also know that ancient cultures in Egypt, India, and the Orient practiced nudism. And many remote tribes in Africa and South America wear little to no clothing even to this day.

Why did we start wearing clothes? Cont…Read full original article…

‘It is such a liberating experience’: Naturists get real about life in the raw
A naturist lifestyle is about much more than getting your gear off.

When executive Stuart Whelan first decided to visit a nudist beach, he didn’t tell his wife. But she had suspicions he’d been up to something.

Stuart Whelan and his wife left their corporate life in Sydney to own and operate a naturist retreat in Nelsons Bay.

“When I got home she looked at me and said ‘Where have you been? You’re just beaming’”, he says. “I’d always planned to tell her, and she said ‘Wow … I’ve got to have some of that.’”

Thus began a journey that led Whelan, in his early 50s at the time, and his wife, from their corporate life in Sydney to owning and operating a naturist retreat in Nelsons Bay. For Whelan, getting naked in nature was “transformational”. Cont…Read full original article…

Nude awakenings: the misunderstood world of naturism

Andrew Welch would like to make it clear he has never had an orgy, thank you very much. Nor has he ever cavorted, prepared to cavort or even thought about cavorting. He is not a pervert, he is not corrupting your children, and he is not – for the love of God – ‘offending’ you. Andrew Welch is just a naturist, like millions of other people, and he’d love for you to join him some time.

Naturists being naturists, not a mass suicide

“The British public tend to have this absurd stigma about it,” Welch says, with a touch of exasperation. “It’s about nakedness in general. They think there’s something immodest or unnatural about it, that by being naturists we’re doing something illicit. It’s so far from the truth that it’s laughable, it really is.”

Welch has been Commercial Manager for British Naturism (BN) – the national organisation for social nudists – for over a decade, joining a small and committed staff of part-timers at the Northampton-based non-profit.

It’s his job to change minds and address the reputation surrounding a pursuit many dismiss as distinctly odd, conducted at best by elderly eccentrics with an unnerving love of volleyball, or at worst by sex-crazed elderly eccentrics with an unnerving love of volleyball. In reality, they barely even play volleyball. Cont…Read full original article…
