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:
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?
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?
So Paris finally did it. It has a nudist area at Bois de Vincennes. Oh that every city had an area like this!
