Naked Time is Summer Time: Five Answers to Your Concerns about Getting Naked this Summer

Clothing Optional Trips

tumblr_nu4qhiE6rh1sjx31vo1_500 What’s the most comfortable bathing suit on the beach? No bathing suit!

I’ve always loved summer time, but the older I get the more summer means getting naked and spending time with my wife outdoors. Honestly there is nothing better than feeling the sunshine on your skin and a warm breeze cooling your body. After 45 years, I can honestly say being naked outside on a warm or hot day is the best. Sound like something you and your spouse or special friend might want to try? There is no better time to be naked than summer time.

Our blog is about encouraging couples to try social nudity. For my wife and me, we’ve found it to be a wonderful bonding point. We are not nudist. We live very normal lives in the suburbs. Most days were are getting our children off to school and working long hours at our jobs…

The Naked Truth continues...

Is there anything better than taking your clothes off ?  Probably not !
In every group of friend, there’s at least one person who’s always the first to suggest a trip to the clothing-optional beach or a midsummer skinny dip. These are the “naked people,” or those among us who have discovered that there truly is nothing better than being nude. But opting to wear only your birthday suit can sometimes get a bad rap. Naturists, who make a lifestyle of living in the nude, are often misunderstood or stigmatized as “hippies,” creeps or, worse, perverts. In reality, the naturist credo is quite simple: Living comfortably in your body is the best way to live. In fact, going nude has tremendous psychological and physical benefits.

Effort to get people to cover up in Ile du Levant, France, exposes discord in longtime nudist colony

By Noemie Bisserbe

ILE DU LEVANT, France—On a blustery morning on this Mediterranean island, dozens of naked men and women marched arm-in-arm in defense of their right to bare bottoms.

The target of their protest was Jean-Yves Gacon, who is wielding his authority as head of the island’s homeowners association to force people to wear clothing. The coverup has the backing of the mayor’s office as well as local police who are stopping anyone who dares stroll through the village square without clothes.

“The traditions of this place need to be preserved,” says Elizabeth Varet, a 70-year-old retired English teacher who attended the protest, held last year, in the buff.

Mr. Gacon, 67, wearing a black shirt, white trousers and sunglasses inside his office, refuses to back down. “Asking a person to…

Raw Photo Series Asks People To Take Off Their Clothes And Discuss Self-Love

Photographer Anastasia Kuba has learned that although body positivity is important, beauty is much more complex.

Priscilla Frank Arts Writer, The Huffington Post

Photographer Anastasia Kuba grew up feeling beautiful. She had light eyes, blond hair and big breasts, attributes conventionally defined as such. From a young age, she was showered with attention. But Kuba still struggled intensely with self-esteem. “My self-worth was connected to my looks,” the artist explained to The Huffington Post.

Kuba’s self-identification as a beautiful woman shaped many of her life choices growing up. “There was nothing else I thought I had to offer. I was young — I hadn’t really established my identity yet, who I was.” To support herself in her early 20s, after moving from Russia to the United States, Kuba worked as a topless dancer. It wasn’t a defining moment in Kuba’s life, but an affirmation of what she already felt — that her…

Naturism As A Lifestyle

A very interesting article about what naturism is about.

Social Change

Naturism is not:

  • just sunbathing
  • just visiting nudist clubs
  • just going nude in or around the house
  • just eating, washing and entertaining guests in the nude
  • just camping, hiking, or canoeing in the nude
  • just writing and talking about it.

Naturism is all of these things and more. It not only represents a value system shared by over 20 million people worldwide, it also represents a lifestyle, a way of life.

In more conservative Western societies such as Canada, England and the United States, naturism presents hurdles for those who embrace its gymnos philosophy – hurdles of public and private roles, image definition, balancing textile (clothed) and naturist behaviours, and of habitation arrangements regarding location, privacy and access.

As with other things people hold true or worthwhile, naturism is called upon to be defended or justified. Due to its basic value of body shamelessness, it is defended more frequently than…

Naturism in Latin America moving forward

I’m a proud member of FNM but couldn’t make it to ELAN this time.

A Big Step for Organized Naturism in Latin America

For the sixth regional Gathering, or Encounter (Encuentro / Encontro), the selection of Mexico as host also holds special significance. The Federación Nudista de México (FNM)* is not quite five years old, yet Mexico is – by far – the most populous Latin American nation after Brazil. At the previous ELAN, the Brazilians, who are the most organized, pushed to support Mexico as host to help build strength in the region. And whereas Brazil has a dozen or so official naturist beaches with legal status, in Mexico there were not, until this very event, any such official naturist beaches, only arrangements with hotels (for example, along the Riviera Maya) or else the impetus of tradition, such as at Zipolite where social nudity has long been tolerated.

At the event, which was the first such international naturist event in Mexico, only Mexico…
