Do you know what #Naturism is? "Naturism is a way of living life in harmony with nature, characterized by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment". #INF 1974 | #LiveNaturism pic.twitter.com/t7PUnhou8S

And in America too!
If this is the way that the world is developing, then that’s great. People should be allowed to be nude on their own property – and elsewhere too when appropriate. Good to sse the cops taking a sensible approach. Oh that was universal.
Isn’t it time?
How come our natural bodies became such a source of so much negativity?
This BBC3 article tells us that “päntsdrunk” is the newest, bestest hyyge, plogging, lagom lifestyle choice.
All it requires is that people stay at home on long cold winter evenings and drink alone, wearing only their underwear. OK! But in their underwear? Really? Drink alone in underwear when you can drink alone in the nude – if you must drink alone? Nude with friends preferably of course. And on the subject of drinking alone at home – well, do you? (OK, I do sometimes. “Got to just finish this bottle. Not much left. Go on then!”).
So what should it be called? nudedrunk? drunknude? You choose!
And by the way: I don’t think for one moment that Scandinavians, known worldwide to be free living and unashamed, would dream of sitting around in underwear. They are nude in family saunas, so why on earth would they? Perish the thought!
Early leaders of the modern naturism era – ancient naturism has been around since the birth of man, surpressed only in recent millenia – Germany is to be admired. Even during the breakup of the nation post-WWII, the eastern Germans took to our lifestyle with gusto, even more so than their western counterparts perhaps.
But what of German naturism today? This photo article tells all:
I wonder what our German colleagues think of this?
Sophie explains well in her excellent video:
Naturistbnb is a new website this year catering for naturists in the same way that has been so successful for Airbnb, which we use frequently. Now we don’t have to search for naturist-friendly rents – at least not in the places that offer such accommodation.
It’s a bit limited right now but will suit those who are looking for somewhere to spend their liesure time. Hopefully, it will grow like Topsy – or like Airbnb, in fact!
What can I say – I have been tied up with an unexpected project that has not only kept me away from my blog, but has curtailed my naturist life too. But it doesn’t stop me working nude! When the project is at an end, normal service will be resumed.
Stuart Whelan, in his early 50s at the time, and his wife, left their corporate life in Sydney to own and operate a naturist retreat in Nelsons Bay, Australia. For Stuart, getting naked in nature was “transformational”.
Don’t you just love a great naturist story?
