I Love a Good True Life Naturist Story

Stuart Whelan and his wife left their corporate life in Sydney to own and operate a naturist retreat in Nelsons Bay.

For 48-year-old Jenni Parry, becoming comfortable in her own skin has been the best thing about going naturist.

A Happy Tale

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?

Frosted Window for Protection

What a compromise. New school gets a frosted glass window so old naturist doesn’t have to change his lifestyle. The world is getting better!

But for whose protection: his from being overlooked without causing problems or the kids from having to see a human body?

Paris Bites the Bullet

Two naked persons walk past a sign reading "you are entering a space where the practise of naturism is authorised" at the Bois de Vincennes park in Paris.So Paris finally did it. It has a nudist area at Bois de Vincennes. Oh that every city had an area like this!

What needs to change for naturism to be accepted — Nu et heureux – Naked and Happy

As naturists, we feel good if not better while naked. Many of us would like to be able to be naked more frequently not facing negative consequences. For this, we need to continue, if not increase, to tell the naturism story and its many benefits. However, I was asking myself the question: what needs to […]

Different Countries, Different Cultures

This entertaining article about German naturism from The New York Times Style Magazine illustrates how different naturism (or nudism if you prefer) is in different countries. The article discusses German attitudes, fleetingly compared to US, and the differences, as we all know, are huge. Can you imagine city centre (center) parks in DC or NYC allowing clothing optional sunning? Nope, nor me! World’s apart.

But so are the differences within Europe itself. UK is more reserved, as one would expect, and naturists are expected to cover up in public with bare acceptance at nudist beaches, France is the naturist destination of choice for many but is only now getting round to public naturism away from designated nude beaches, Italy is still trying to decide, but Spain – the repressed country of my childhood under Franco – is head and shoulders ahead with nudity no longer illegal anywhere.

We often hike along a France/Spain border trail wondering what reaction we would receive from the authorities of either nation. A moot point – there are hardly ever any other hikers, let alone anyone in a uniform.

Nevertheless, cultures are different and must be respected. But roll on the day when we can all enjoy total freedom of public unclothed recreation in cities, countryside and coastlines and bask in open acceptance by the masses of any western country.

Después de ocho años de trabajo, Spencer Tunick hizo desnudos en Colombia

Spencer Tunick: worldwide ambassador for naturism. OK, its for art really, but it gets people naked and some will enjoy it enough to continue – alone, at home with family or or out there socially. It’s got to be good, right?
