A man who was caught naked in a Planet Fitness thought he’d get away with it because the gym considers itself a “judgment-free zone,” officials said.
Eric Stagno, 34, of Massachusetts, was arrested on Sunday at a gym in Plaistow, N.H., after gymgoers allegedly caught him exercising in the nude, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.
Plaistow Capt. Brett Morgan said police were dispatched to the Planet Fitness location after receiving a call from witnesses that summarily said, “the guy walked in, stripped down right there in front, left the clothes and belongings at the front desk, walked back and forth across the gym a couple of times and then settled in over at the yoga mats.”
As I stated in my last post I am a Christian. This may come as a surprise to you, especially since much of the nudist community has shunned religion. The shunning is unfortunately mutual in most circumstances.
But, just like politics, nudists come from many religious backgrounds. Personally, I come from a very conservative sect of Christianity.
How does this mesh with my naturism?
Honestly, I don’t tell people at church about my naked tendencies. For me it’s a matter of conscience where for many of them it’s a black and white matter of morality. Since nudity is so tied to illicit sex in our culture it would be potentially disastrous to tell my fellow believers about my position. Continued…Read full original article…
Turner V. Stokes’ favorite outfit was when he was wearing — as he liked to say — nothing but a smile.
The 90-year-old leader of various nudist organizations died Saturday from prostate cancer in Nanjemoy, Md.
Born in Washington, D.C., in 1927, Stokes enlisted in the Navy in 1945 and later worked for military contractors testing electronic equipment.
He told the Washington Post’s Lee Hockstader in 1984 that when he was younger, he sometimes went skinny-dipping with his cousin in the Chesapeake Bay and remembered as a teenager seeing his first nudist magazine, called Sunshine and Health. But it wasn’t until he turned 50 that he persuaded his wife at the time to join him at a nudist camp in Pennsylvania.
The Post reports that he said he was drawn to nudism for its “physical feeling,” which he felt was “mentally stimulating” and gave a “feeling of freedom.”
In the 1980s, Stokes fancied himself a “naturist,” which, he explained to the Post, was different from a “nudist.” Naturists preferred to be nude in nature — not confined to a camp or resort like nudists. Continued…Read full original article…
Nature is glorious. It can make us feel a whole lot of ways — sometimes nature’s splendor makes us want to charge all the way up a mountain, or break out our stupidest dance move on the beach at sunset, or strip down to our birthday suits and skip through a field of wildflowers.
But what happens when our deepest instinct is to strip down naked to take in a primeval forest or a spectacular mountain vista, in a place where a lot of other people are definitely going to be around to spectate? Like in a national park, for instance. Turns out, you wouldn’t be the first person ever to have that impulse. But like so many other impulses, it’s important to know whether it’s legal.

People all over the world enjoy nonsexual nude recreation. Some call themselves skinnydippers. Some call themselves nudists. Some call themselves naturists. There are nudist or naturist vacations, clubs, resorts, campgrounds, groups, cruises and beaches across the globe.
We asked American Association for Nude Recreation President Beverly B. Price about AANR and nudism.
How would you describe AANR in one sentence?
The American Association for Nude Recreation is the oldest and largest organization in the Western Hemisphere advocating for and educating about nude living. Continued…Read full original article…
Like to walk around in your birthday suit? Worry about getting enough Vitamin D? The 1930s had a great option for you: nudist colonies. In 1933 a group of more than fifty prominent Forth Worth young people formed their own nudist colony in the woods on the edge of town. Why?
Simple: They wanted to “engage in their hobbies of psychology, astrology and nature, and a general pursuit of health.” Far from a salacious affair, the colony genuinely just wanted to hang out, exercise together, and take a lot of “sun baths.” The people who originally formed the colony included married and unmarried couples, their children, some “stags” and “single maidens.” To keep it all on the up and up they even hired a “physical instructor” who was educated about the “pitfalls” and “assets” of nudism.

In 1929 the flow of German immigrants and tourists began bringing the roots and ideas of the nudist lifestyle to America. It was Kurt Barthel, a German immigrant, who got the ball rolling by informing people that nudism was very common in Germany and France and spreading to other countries. On Labor Day of that same year, Kurt and 3 other couples in Peekskill, New York began American Social Nudism. Just a few months later the American League for Physical Culture ( ALPC ) was founded and within a couple of months they had over 50 members. In 1931 the Reverend Ilsley Boone came on board. He was elected vice president of the ALPC. Now things were really moving. Social nudism received national attention in North America with the forming of the National Nudist Conference, then several years later it became the American Sunbathing Association and just a short time ago it became (and is still known as) the American Association for Nude Recreation.
It was not as easy as it sounds. Many of the above clubs were raided by police. In 1956, in the state of Michigan, a Christian radio evangelist took it into his liberty to close down the Sunshine Gardens Nudist Resort, although to our satisfaction, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled naturists have the right to practice nudism within private resorts.

The American Association for Nude Recreation has officially designated the second Saturday in July as International Skinny Dip Day.
Skinny-dipping, a tradition as old as mankind and frequently shown in art and movies, celebrates the joy of plunging into water without the hindrance of clothing. To celebrate this rite of summer, the association declared July 14 as the day when everyone can free themselves of clothes and inhibitions by taking a dip au natural in their backyard pool, a secluded spot on a river or lake, at a sanctioned nude beach or at one of the association’s 200 clubs and resorts throughout the U.S., Canada and internationally.
International Skinny Dip Day serves as the culminating event during National Nude Recreation Week, an annual celebration for individuals and families to visit clothing-optional clubs for a “Nakation.” Events throughout the week at the association’s locations include open houses, dance parties, sports tournaments, chili cook-offs, “bare buns” fun runs, health screenings and art shows.

With one of the longest and chilliest cold snaps in years taking hold across south Louisiana, everyone seems to be bundling up. Even nudists.
“We may be nudists, but we ain’t stupid,” said Travis David, who does maintenance work at the Indian Hills Nudist Park in Slidell — Louisiana’s only such attraction.
David was fully clothed — heavily clothed — from head to toe Tuesday, responding to calls about broken pipes from the prolonged freezing temperatures the roughly 50-acre park just west of Slidell has seen over the last few days. Continued…Read full original article…
In Western culture, there are very few laws specifically prohibiting simple public nudity and yet we are encouraged to think of covering the body as an obligatory requirement for social interactions. We cover our bodies for “impression management, style, panache, and careful bodily representation.” We even feel compelled through social pressure to wear at least minimal clothing, even when swimming, and other activities that really do not and should not require covering. But clothing does serve a purpose beyond covering. We use clothing and other accessories for an outward expression of our identity and group affiliations.
In the National Geographic Channel documentary Taboo: Extreme Living, Psychology Professor Matthew Westra spoke to the ideologies in the US surrounding nudity. “Nudity is a taboo in America because we primarily equate nudity or nakedness with sexuality and we have taboos about sexuality,” he began, “a lot of it has to do, I think, with the Puritan and Victorian heritage that we have, which says that any kind of temptation will lead you into hell.” Continued…Read full original article…
Standing steady as stone, like a Renaissance statue with movable lips, Paul Cronin hears artist Joan Rooks behind him blowing her nose. He cannot help but to offer some friendly advice.
“At the first sign of a cold, have vitamin C and Echinacea on standby, and hammer it with everything you’ve got,” he says, still holding his pose. “And make sure you cover your head. That’s the simplest, low-tech method to bypass or minimize a cold.”
So says the naked guy in the drafty, old art school.
Because someone has to do it and because a man needs to make a living, Cronin has been disrobing in the name of fine art since the 1970s. Go ahead and multiply roughly 32 hours a week by four-plus decades by thousands of artists. Cronin has. He estimates there have been some quarter million renderings of his lean nakedness.
He owns a few of them, gifts from the artists. He keeps them rolled up in a closet under his stairwell. One, drawn years ago by the now famous Jerome Witkin, is probably worth something.
It’s 6 p.m. on Monday, and Cronin has spent the afternoon naked at a Williams College drawing class. Now he’s here in the drawing room at IS 183 Art School for three hours of posing on a platform beside a space heater at the weekly open studio.
His clothes hang upon an easel. His shoes are set tidily together in a corner with his socks draped loosely across them. Cronin has taken his position in the center of the room doing what he’s become famous for in art circles within an hour radius of Albany: He is keeping perfectly still.

A man is under arrest after police say he was caught posing nude for a woman photographing him on a Utah bridge.
The couple apparently decided to take advantage of unseasonably warm temperatures and stage a photo shoot on a railroad bridge near Mountain Green on Wednesday afternoon, the Standard-Examiner reports.
Union Pacific railroad workers noticed the couple and called police because they thought they were fishing off the bridge. When Morgan County sheriff’s deputies arrived, they discovered the man was posing for the woman.
The man was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespass and lewdness. The woman was cited for criminal trespass. Police say the couple is from Layton, but their names were not immediately released. Continued…Read full original article…
Although the US has a fame for being a prude country, there are some local exceptions, and Vermont is one of them: there is no state law against public nudity (though there is one against disrobing in public :D) And with all those green mountains around (just think of the state’s name etymology), it’s a perfect destination for naturists!
My long-time pen pal Ed organizes an annual summer solstice naked hike in Vermont, and though I could never make it for this group hike itself, I went on the same route with Ed and another friend, Matt, just later in summer (mid-August).
The route includes a part of the famous Appalachian trail, so you’d expect a few fellow hikers, but it’s great to have the law on your side – just make sure to leave your car naked, and you don’t need to hide!-) Continued…Read full original article…
There is nothing like fun in the sun. Anytime that one travels, fun in the sun, enjoying nature, and just relaxing is a must. Relaxation and fun in the sun is even better when you have options and can be liberated in every way possible without the restriction of cloth and materials.
One may even question such places to relax. If you’re reading this, then you are about to embark on a journey to some of the best clothing optional beaches on the east coast United States. Continued…Read full original article…
Soma had been chronically depressed since the time he’d graduated from Bethel College in the late 1970s. The next couple decades he recalls “not doing much.”
By 1990, he’d been prescribed “tons and tons of medication” for anxiety and depression, leaving him in a drugged haze. At night he couldn’t sleep, and aimlessly wandered the streets of the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. One night he got mugged. Another time he found a murdered woman’s body.
Then one day Soma passed out on the floor of his apartment, lying unconscious for hours. A neurologist determined he was suffering from something called “serotonin syndrome,” brought on by taking several times the normal dose of Prozac, among other drugs.
Libby Magness Weisberg waits at her Cherry Hill condo in a plush pink bathrobe and animal-print slippers. In a few minutes, she will pose for photographer and artist Nancy Hellebrand — completely naked.
Weisberg is 90.
Her body bears witness to the progression of life, of carrying and breastfeeding three children, of age spots and wrinkles and sags, of hips that creak and shoulders that hunch, and all the other travails and indignities of getting old.
Some might call her body a battlefield. Hellebrand calls it beautiful.
“I love their wrinkles,” says Hellebrand, 73, tall and lean with a shock of wild gray hair and round, red glasses perched on her nose. “I love their skin, the way light is on their skin. It’s a different version of beautiful. In younger women, the skin is taut. In older women, the skin is the opposite of taut … and it has its own strength.” Continued…Read full original article…
WESTMORE — It’s a little too cold now for swimming – with or without a bathing suit.
But the Westmore Select Board is not done with its consideration of banning nude sunbathing come next beach season at popular Lake Willoughby’s Southwest Cove.
That beach, secluded and accessed by a walk through the woods and down a set of stone steps, has been a clothing-optional beach for decades.
Every so often, controversy over the nude beach bubbles up, and that happened this past summer, with allegations coming to the town’s selectmen over women being bullied by naked sunbathing men.
Those allegations led the board recently to meet with the town attorney to consider a draft public indecency ordinance for the Town of Westmore that would put an end to the clothing-optional beach enjoyed by the naturists – the term naked sunbathers prefer. Continued…Read full original article…
The activists had wanted to place a 45-foot statue of a nude women on prime land on the Mall. They said it would be a symbol of feminine strength and power, a sign that women should never feel ashamed in their bodies.
The Naked in Nature Movement There’s a new movement taking the hiking community by storm: the naked in nature movement. While yes, it’s partly about shedding your clothes and baring your bits, at its core it is all about promoting positive body image. And I’m all for it!
I was first introduced to this movement when a fellow hiker posted about the topless movement in Arizona. A group of women had started taking their tops off at certain hiking destinations in the state, and posing for photos with a bare back. This had me intrigued. Were these women simply looking for attention? Or was there another reason they were unveiling their breasts?
Turns out, the only attention they wanted was to shine light on body positivity. Instagram accounts like @getyourassintonature, @unlikelyhikers and @fatgirlshikeing are changing the way we see ourselves, our bodies and the way we look at others. They help remind us that our bodies are not just tools of pleasure or something to be gawked at. Our bodies are instruments to help us navigate the backcountry, climb mountains and carry 35lb packs on our backs. Continued…Read full original article…
My first time : Connie Our posts ‘My first time’, also published as ‘My nude debut’, has been a popular, if irregular series at SLN, and draw on reports we receive, or commission, as to our readers first experiences of naturism in its broadest sense.
They seem to be like buses 🙂 you wait for ages and two come along at once!
Here’s the first of two recently received reports, the first from Floridian reader Connie, about her first experiences of skiing dipping in her parents’ pool with a friend and, later in the week, there’ll be another in this ongoing, irregular series, following an inworld conversation I had with an avatar at a naturist sim.
Hi, I’m Connie, from Vero Beach, Florida. Or I was, 10 years ago as a middle teen. My nudist experience comes from I was living with my Mom in Florida. My parents are divorced and my Dad lives in Tampa now. Mom still lives in Vero Beach, but I’m now resident in Kissimmee after university there, finding a job after university and then marrying. I’m 25 now and the proud Mom of my own baby son. About 10 years ago, I was 15 going 16, my parents split up and Dad moved away. It was an amicable divorce and Mom got the house, complete with pool. At the time my Mom was young enough to think about dating again (she eventually married a boyfriend she met in that time) so used to go out every Friday night. I was pretty young, but she had enough faith in me for me to be at home if I had a friend over for a sleepover most Fridays.
Olivia would come over and stay until Saturday lunchtime when Mom drove her home, so we’d go home from school on a Friday afternoon, Mom would fix us some food, and we’d change into our bikinis and laze by the pool.
The sun would go down but it’s Florida, still warm enough to sit out in a bikini until midnight and beyond it you want to in the summer months.. Which was what we did. We’d put on some music, order a pizza or light up the BBQ, cook some food and chill. We’d swim a bit. Continued…Read full original article…
It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to close Young Naturists America by the end of this year.
We originally started this organization about 7 years ago with a few goals in mind – to bring about social change, to bring naturist values back into the modern nudist movement and to introduce more young adults to naturism.
And we did succeed in this through our grassroots outreach, hundreds of published articles, online social groups, gatherings and events, media coverage, Radio / TV appearances and more.
Our events brought together hundreds of people from all over the USA (and a few from overseas as well) who were looking for an acceptance-based community of people like them. Every single event we ever did brought people that had never tried social nudism before, many of whom had a life-altering transformational experience. These events and gatherings also resulted in many new friendships being formed and even a few marriages! We ourselves met so many beautiful people over the course of running this organization.

Normally all of these tales are based on personal memory, but this one is hearsay. However, the source is one of my oldest and dearest friends and I would trust my life to his recollection above almost any other, in what is, fortunately, becoming a long life with many, many friends and acquaintances.
This tale originates in Western Pennsylvania, where I grew up, and involves three of my best friends and an unknown young woman that were enjoying a wonderful Pennsylvania summer participating in a very popular activity. This likely happened about 1961, and it was then fashionable for young people to enjoy nice cooling swims in the Ohio River at a favorite place, one I enjoyed many times when I was home. At the Neville Island Park there was a long rope swing that allowed the swingers to fly out over the river and splash into the deep, cool water. Normally the park was open from about noon to near sunset.
Now in 1957 I departed to pursue an education and I was never home again in summer due to various jobs which kept me away. However, my friend Nick and his now wife, Linda along with another old friend, Paul and his girlfriend kept up the tradition and continued to make the 20 mile drive to enjoy the swimming at Neville Island Park. I learned of this escapade at a 50 year class reunion in 2007.
On a hot sultry summer night, when the idea was hatched, prompted mostly by Paul, to sneak into the Neville Island swimming area about 11 p.m. and go “swimming in the dark!” Now 50 years later, Nick couldn’t remember if the plan was to do a co-ed “Skinny Dip” or whether it was just to be an unplanned swimming in full clothes or partially clad, but Linda remembers that they didn’t bring swimsuits!

The debut episode of Sarah Silverman’s brand new Hulu variety show I Love You, America features some startling full-frontal nudity. The moment comes during the comedian’s opening monologue, in which she tells the crowd that instead of picturing the audience naked, she’d prefer to see some real-life nudity.
The camera quickly turns to two of the show’s attendees, Scott and Stella, both seated in their chairs completely naked, prompting a mix of gasps and giggles from the rest of the crowd. With a grin on her face, Silverman greets Scott and instructs the cameraman to pan down to his “pubes,” as she puts it. “Great penis, Scott,” she explains, before turning her attention to Stella and her privates.
The uncomfortable bit, it turns out, was developed early on in the writers room. “When someone pitched the picture-the-audience-naked concept, I went, ‘Ugh, that’s so trite. You thought of that because you’ve seen it before on television,'” Silverman explained to The Hollywood Reporter after the taping. “So we just leaned into that trope and made it into something totally, in my opinion, original.” And after all, this is a streaming service, not some broadcast network with strict standards and practices limits. “I wanted to take advantage of the fact that we are on a network where we can see nudity, clinical nudity.” Continued…Read full original article…
When I was about 10, my parents were afraid that if I fell off a boat I might drown, so they enrolled me in a swim class at the local YMCA (Westfield, New Jersey). In the indoor-pool all-boys class, nudity was mandatory for the students. I loved the body freedom and the equality with my fellow students.
As soon as I was old enough not to need a babysitter, my parents would leave me alone when they went out for the evening. Whenever they left, as soon as their car was out of sight, I’d run to my room, ditch my clothes, and return to the living room or kitchen to spend the rest of the evening gloriously naked. I continued going nude around the house when my parents were out, and in my room after they had gone to bed. I remember warm summer nights lying on my bed without sheets as balmy breezes from the open windows wafted across my entire body. I felt wonderful!
I longed to repeat the feeling of freedom I’d had at the Y but had no opportunity for 12 years, until at age of 22 I moved to California to attend graduate school. A friend a year ahead of me showed some slides of the San Francisco Bay Area, one showing a road sign for which he narrated. “Below this sign is a nude beach.” I memorised the sign as he flipped to the next slide. Soon I suggested to my wife that we go to the coast and, without saying why, I took her to that nude beach, Bonny Doon. When we arrived on the beach, I spread our blanket and took off my clothes. For the first time since my teen years, I was delighted to feel the breezes blowing over my entire body! I knew I was home. Continued…Read full original article…
Among the upcoming Final Friday exhibitions is a show at the Phoenix Underground that artist and organizer Brent Learned is sure will offer a unique experience not only in subject matter, but also in its assemblage.
Native American Body of Art is an exhibition featuring 30-plus nude paintings of Native Americans by nine Native American artists from different tribes. The idea for the show was conceived by Learned, a Cheyenne/Arapaho artist from Oklahoma City and a 1993 University of Kansas graduate, who said he had “been kicking it around for a while” after talking with artist friends about the lack of Native American nude portraits that are not exoticized or hyper-sexualized, but created in the classical sense.

In San Francisco you’ll see naked people on bike rides, lounging on Baker Beach, running in the Bay to Breakers or walking around at the Folsom Street Fair.
A few years ago Bay Curious listener Kelly Hardesty was walking in the Castro with her daughter when they saw a naked man, who wore nothing but white tennis shoes. Her daughter said, “Mommy, Mommy he’s naked.” She replied, “Yeah, he is.”
Kelly didn’t want to make a big deal about it, since it wasn’t exactly the most unusual sight in the city, but then a mailman looked at her and said, “I remember when I first started my route, and that used to shock me, too, but now I don’t think anything of it.”
North Rincon Beach (locally known as Bates Beach, named after the beach’s access from Bates Rd.) is at the southern tip of Santa Barbara County, just north of Rincon Point.
The beach was once a safe, family-friendly environment that attracted several hundred people on summer weekends. On the convenient eastern end, people in bathing suits came to exercise their dogs and watch the world-class surfers practice their skills. The more remote western end served many people who enjoyed a clothing-optional beach experience. These traditional uses of the beach served the public well for over 40 years
Beach tourists ate at local restaurants, stayed in local hotels, and brought in estimated half-million dollars into the local Carpinteria economy. A cooperative attitude worked well for the local community and allowed law enforcement officials to focus on significant incidents.
In 1977, in response to complaints of inappropriate behavior at several other nearby nude beaches, the county passed an ordinance banning public nudity throughout Santa Barbara. The law was used to close most of the beaches to nude use, except Bates, which continued on with few problems for another 20 years. Cont…Read full original article…
Though many parts of Florida were bracing for the worst from Hurricane Irma this weekend, the storm seems to have caused the most damage to a number of Caribbean islands last week. This includes the island of St. Martin, where at least nine people died and Dutch officials said 70% of homes were damaged or destroyed.
St. Martin is also home to a premier clothing-optional vacation resort, Club Orient. The large resort sustained severe damage to its property, facilities and 130+ rooms. A number of buildings were flattened, and Orient Beach (a clothing-optional beach accessible to the public) is gone.

It’s been a while since we were debating Scott Wiener’s nudity ban, which took effect in 2012 and has resulted in several older nudist gentlemen who frequent Jane Warner Plaza in the Castro having to wear small socks on their dongs. The ordinance, which was supported by some of Wiener’s constituents in the Castro who were tired of the dong parade, was seen by many as another example of San Francisco slipping ever further away from its kooky, libertine, bohemian, and anti-authoritarian roots. But how far back do those roots really go?
That’s the question addressed in a piece by KQED, which takes a broader historical perspective on nudity here by the Bay. There were no laws against public nudity in SF until the 1960’s — under state law, indecent exposure is illegal, when it is sexual in nature, however flaccid-dong nude sunbathing and standing around, as many have observed in the Castro, falls under the purview of local governments. By the time the Summer of Love arrived 50 years ago, conservative San Franciscans decided they were going to draw the line at seeing hippies frolicking nude or having sex in Golden Gate Park, and the city passed a law against nudity in public parks.
Thomas J. Cahill, who served as SF’s chief of police from 1958 to 1970, once described it like this: “It wasn’t uncommon for a gal to come out of the bushes there in the Panhandle without a damn stitch and stand right in front of you with her hands up. I was out in the park and two started going to it on the lawn beside me.” Cont…Read full original article…
Paradise Gardens Resort, Cincinnati’s only resort for nudists, has been sold to a developer, ending decades of clothing-optional camaraderie and controversy, according to resort owners.
“What I’ll miss most of all are the people. All the friends you make. It was like a big family,” said Ron Coleman, president of Paradise Resort Inc., operator of Paradise Gardens on Blue Rock Road in rural Colerain Township.
The little-known nudist resort spread across 34 acres was sold Friday for an undisclosed amount to a Cincinnati-based developer who plans to build five new homes on the property, according to Coleman.
Coleman said he doubts the new homes will raise the ire of neighbors, who occasionally have complained about the resort and even banded together to block proposed developments there. Cont…Read full original article…
So… your blog talks about Europe, the Caribbean, Africa… and even naturism in Asia? What about getting naked in America?
Well, we’ve tried that. With passion and diligence.
And in fact, sometimes we still practice naturism in America, be that at a nearby nudist club, Palm Springs, or if we’re feeling particularly adventurous, a nude beach in California or on the Jersey Shore. In fact, my last major internet endeavor involved a web site dedicated to family naturism in America. At the time, our children were typical adolescents; quite willing to participate in naturism when we went to Europe, but pretty much put off by the entire idea anywhere else in the New World.
