Will Americans ever “get out” of the Nudist Colony?

I love France for nudism!

The Meandering Naturist

As we near the end of a five week nakation in Europe, I find myself asking the same question I do every year about this time as we prepare to return to our everyday lives in the eastern United States. Really? Aren’t there places we can replicate this at home? I keep reading that more Americans than ever are open to the idea of social nudity. But unless you get on The Big Nude Boat or travel abroad, where do you find this on American soil.

51ac37fe6e30c4a7f1cf9958feecac44Every time I bark up this tree, I draw the ire of those lovingly devoted to their home nudist clubs, who feel understandably irritated when I suggest that despite all the cultural barriers that make social nudity unfathomable to the average American in the first place, the movement is further hindered by the fact that we make that first naturist venture nearly insurmountable.

Naturism & parenting

Brilliant words

Bare Thoughts

As you all know, I didn’t grew up with naturism. But when I heard in December of 2014 that I was gonna be a father, it was very clear to me that naturism was gonna be a big part of how I was raising my daughter. When I look at young families on resorts like Flevonatuur, I notice a lot of differences between children growing up with naturism and children growing up without it. I’ll try to describe those differences and explain why I think it’s important that children, the future keepers of this planet, should get involved with naturism.


Now, I know that for a lot of people this will be a no-go subject. It’s not. If you read all my previous blogs or did some research about naturism in general, you’ll know that naturism doesn’t harm anyone. This goes for normal social nudity like on the nude beaches…

A carpenter claims he likes to feel the breeze while hammering his wood – in nothing but his work boots.

Naturist Robert Jenner works as a carpenter and is ‘not a bad-looking chap’, according to neighbours who regularly see him renovating his home.

The 42-year-old is always careful when using power tools ‘in case of splinters’ and he says he likes the sense of freedom and liberation that naturism brings.

But the former soldier is concerned he may now…

Naturist charged with…

Gutter press reporting…

CasuallyBuff

Here’s’ the problem:

Naturist charged with creating naked “utopia” sex den to abuse children will not testify at trial

Naturistcharged with…”

Not “Pedophile charged with…”

Not “Gay man charged with…”

The gutter press strikes again. And not only this article in the Bristol Post. It appears in that august authority of serious news The Daily Star

But why is this? The man simply used naturism as a means to an end that has absolutely nothing to do with naturism, a clean-living and healthy life-style.

It is simply to sell newspapers. “Pedophile” and “Gay Man” don’t get people’s interest as much as “Naturist”.

There’s a long way to go yet for naturism!

In the meantime, here’s what healthy family naturism looks like:

On The Outside Looking In (The Naked Adventure)

Your comments welcome!

PurpleT and Photography

For anyone following this blog closely you’ll know i have a thing about nudity. I like to get naked. It’s fun. It’s comfortable. It’s natural.

I enjoyed being naked from a relatively young age. Part of the reason i became a life model was to help prove to people that i was serious about nudity and prepared to get naked and not just talk about it. The 20 years as life model also built a serious appreciation of the nude figure in art. I built that nudity into my photography. A theme i use in my photography is how we are forced to hide our bodies away, sometimes by photographing myself in out of the way places or in derelict buildings.

This photograph was taken on a day out in July on my birthday. I took a trip to the seaside town of Scarborough in Yorkshire. Despite the fact that…

Last Chance to See

A wonderful performance!

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

img_3376For the last three nights, our all-female, fully nude production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest has played to sold-out houses in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. (Well, tickets are free, so maybe “sold out” isn’t precisely the right phrase. But packed houses. Standing room only. Let’s call it that.)

img_3138Tonight — Saturday, September 10, 2016 — is your last chance to see the show. If you’re in New York and at all curious, we encourage you to come.

img_3156The show is different in Brooklyn than it was in Central Park in May. The performance space is less isolated, so random pedestrians walking by are more likely to stumble across a mystifying and magical scene. The bulk of the audience is watching from an elevated pagoda, and the lawn before it is flat, reversing the earlier dynamics (in Central Park, most audience members sat on the ground and the stage had a variety of…

Legal Hackette Lunches with the ‘Naked Rambler’

Steve Gough up to date

Legal Hackette's Brief

Stephen GoughOver a picnic of roasted potatoes and mixed nuts on top of Winchester’s St Catherine’s Hill, the man dubbed the ‘Naked Rambler’ shares his thoughts on the burkini ban and the ‘mixed up’ nature of the law, and explains why he chose to spend years in jail to defend his right to go about in the buff.

I meet Stephen Gough at the top of a hill overlooking Winchester prison, one of the jails in which he was incarcerated due to his desire not to wear clothes in public.

Gough has cycled to the meeting point, which he selected. He is clothed in black lycra cycling shorts and an orange T-shirt — the latter of which quickly comes off due to the heat.

After spending more than 10 years in prison because of his wish not to wear clothes, the 57-year-old former Marine has taken to dressing in order to…
