Just half an hour ago, a friend WhatsApped me with a crisp, ‘What are you doing now?’ I placed my Samsung S7 Edge (which I can attest to be the best selfie camera in the world now that Samsung Note 7 has been withdrawn from the market) some distance from me and took a pic with the voice control feature and sent it to him in reply. It took me only 2 minutes to pose and take a selfie and upload it on WhatsApp. This is the age of the selfie camera phone and words are now unnecessary. In reply to the question what I’m doing now, a selfie is worth more than a thousand words. I sent him this pic which was precisely what I was doing at that point in time – reading a book I had just received a few days ago from bookdepository.com:
Why Be or Become A Nudist? Here are the top 10 reasons!
As if You Really Need Reasons To Become A Nudist 😉
Reasons to be a nudist – Practicing nudism is often misunderstood and misinterpreted by many. However, there are in fact many benefits for being a nudist. An educated understanding and an open mind will unveil the many reasons why people choose to become nudists.
1. For Nudists, the human body is demystified
Often, we feel intrigued about naked bodies because they are hidden. However, sometimes we fail to understand that human body is not something so secretive that we can only look at it with immense curiosity, and sometimes even a sense of guilt or shame. Being a nudist will familiarize people with naked bodies and what they look like. It’s especially great for kids to learn what bodies look like. They’ll grow up without body shame, and they…
If you came here for detail of how to walk down to the naturist Beach at Fairlight Glen, Hastings or what the beach looks like when you get there then you are going to be partially disappointed. If you want to enjoy some of the natural beauty of the walk there kindly set off by my co-walker, Richard Collins, then you are in the right place.
Access is through the Country Park to the East of Hastings. We took a route from free street parking to approach the Park from a different angle to what you’ll find in the route advice links but eventually our path met the usual route from the car park and it is here that we stripped off to make the final naked…
This is the valley of the River Ouse on its journey from Alfriston to the sea at Cuckmere Haven. About 15 minutes earlier and a kilometre upstream occurred a little altercation which meant that all was not as peaceful as it seems. I was out walking the countryside naked with Richard and Will and after a mid-walk pint we were looking for a place to undress again to continue. We strode onto a wooden bridge over the river which Will declared that was a suitable place to get naked and then he proceeded to do so….
A male voice rang out. At first it seemed jokey. We looked around and there 5 – 10 metres away partially hidden on the river bank under the bridge was a burly middle aged man will a large video camera on a low tripod. The camera was pointed at the bridge.
Burning Man festival this year saw the second installation of our theme camp Gymnasium, which refers to the Ancient Greek institution for athletics, philosophy and socializing. You can read more about the concept of our camp on its webpage, but here is our report with some imagery that should help you imagine what it was like (or evoke some good memories, if you participated in our events).
Even though our theme camp was first conceived with an idea to revive the ideals of the Ancient Olympics, this year besides the athletics we put more effort into another aspect of the concept of ‘gymnasium’ in its original meaning – philosophical discussions (with wine). For one session, each participant received a quote of a Greek philosopher and lead discussion on its subject, which let us cover all kinds of topics. We also had a session when we talked about our personal attitudes towards nudity as well as our…
A few years ago Molly and i went on our first naturist holiday together. At the time we decided to book through Chalfont Holidays, an online naturist travel agents who were very helpful indeed. We chose to goto Charco Del Palo, a small holiday village on the north-eastern coast of Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands.
Nudity is permitted everywhere in the village and the site is open to all however its isolated location helps to ensure a certain amount of privacy. On our visit we stayed in an Obona apartment. Obona are a German travel company that own a couple of blocks of properties in Charco but most of the apartments are privately owned. There are plenty of reasonably priced apartments for rental on the nudelanza.com website.
I had been on a normal textile holiday to Lanzarote in the past so already had an…
Some other ideas to complement the ones in the above post:
Make your own naked place – Get a few naturist friend along with you, go to the beach/forest/trail and plant some signs stating this is a temporary nudist place.
Make your home clothing optional and let everybody know – Put a clothing optional sign close to your front door inviting people coming to drop their clothes and letting them know you will welcome them in the buff.
Have naturism promotion leaflets on your coffee table – Leave those to your non naturists friend so they can understand naturism and its various benefits
