Sussex nudists enjoy days out, country walks and yoga classes in the buff
For a growing number of people in Sussex being naked is simply more comfortable and allows them to enjoy a sense of freedom. While the majority would be embarrassed to bare all on a country walk, naturists are now organising a range of activities across the county and it doesn’t stop at nudist beaches and swims.
From naked yoga, hikes across the Sussex and Kent countryside, ten pin bowling, cream teas, meals out and trips to art galleries – it seems naturists are enjoying all sorts of ordinary activities in the buff.
Every Sunday, people drive from Horsham, Crawley, Tonbridge and Rye to the Edwardian Motcombe Swimming Pool in Eastbourne to enjoy a weekly naturist swim which has been running for 35 years.
Philip Baker from the group said, “The pool and naturism date from the same period and both were considered modern, healthy activities at the time.
“We use the term naturist rather than naked for our swim to emphasise that this is not a hedonistic, but a natural activity.
“Our ethos is respect both for ourselves and others, regardless of shape, age, gender, size, colour, or disability.
