So who was hurt by this?

10 myths about naturism and naturists

by Felicity Jones As naturists, there are certain false assumptions we hear over and over again, and myths that are perpetuated by the media. Here we debunk 10 popular myths about naturism and naturists. Myth #1. Naturists / nudists are naked all the time. Most of us can’t be naked all the time. Even if we live in a nudist club, it’s still necessary to venture outside, and that usually requires pants. How often one can be naked depends on climate, location, what nudist spots are nearby, etc. Also, many nudists don’t want or don’t have a need to be naked all the time. Some people get home and immediately undress out of constricting uncomfortable work clothes. Others switch into pajamas or take off only their top or bottom. Of course, there are also those who can’t be home nudists because of...

Video – Jan Fabre Mount Olympus – To glorify the cult of tragedy

The centerpiece of the 2017 Belgrade international theatre festival was a 24-hour performance of Jan Fabre’s majestic, exhausting and exhilarating Mount Olympus: To Glorify the Cult of Tragedy. A hallucinatory vision of Homeric themes and characters, it presented a Dionysian orgy of madness, murder, incest, feminism, music (rave and arias) and extreme sports (skipping, dancing, fighting, loving).

Naturist idea #33: Be a naked model

Being naked is natural. There’s nothing more natural than just being who you are without any artificial cover. Posing nude for art students is one of the most natural and normal artistic activities. The human body is one of the most beautiful creations. There are numerous wonderful nude paintings. However, to learn how to paint human bodies, artists need models. A lot of art schools are asking for models to pose naked or clothed. Being a naturist, getting naked should not be big a problem. Staying still for hours will be, but art teachers will provide ample poses so you can relax, and move. Of course, you may argue that posing naked is not truly enjoying nudity. It’s true that staying still for hours may not be the best experience of your life. But, for some, it’s a great way to make some ...

Naturist idea #32: Hang and display your nakation pictures

We all love pictures and keeping memories of our past good times and holidays. However, when it comes to nakation, the question of sharability of our pictures can be asked. Let’s think for a moment. Most of us, if not all, would hang our best family pictures on the wall. We would as well hang beautiful art pictures or paintings, some depicting nude bodies, like the picture on the left. The question is why not mixing both, and hanging holiday pictures of our nakations? What is wrong with it? sOur friends and families may see us naked would you argue? If you are a naturist, many people have seen us naked and this has not created an outcry. When you look at your past holiday pictures, you are happy, naked or not. Therefore, I believe we should not make any difference when it comes to naked pi...

Naturist Idea #31 – Join a nude swim

Some naturist clubs and federations around the planet organize nude events at a local swimming pool. The Paris Naturist Association, for instance, have made possible to swim naked three evenings every week in a public swimming pool in Paris and to workout naked five times a week. In Utah, Wasatch Naturists hosts a monthly nude swim in Ogden the third Sunday of the month (with some exceptions). The cos a is $20 for one, but bring a friend and it's $20 for both! You can also look for a public swimming pool that would agree to open its doors at some specific hours to naturists. If you gather enough naturists who are interested, this may be possible, as other’s experiences prove it. Not only is swimming a very healthy exercise, by joining a naturist swimming club you will help spread the messa...

Naturist Idea #30 – Do your house chores naked

We all need to do some chores at one point. Typically, it’s a time to get wet and dirty, so the ideal clothes for this are no clothes! As simple as this, and so much more comfortable. Washing the dishes, mopping the floor or dusting your library seems much more fun when done naked. I really never understood why, and I doubt there is any scientific study about this, but it’s a personal fact. House chores seem less painful when done naked. And if you can share them with your spouse, they are even funnier. Now, let’s think a minute about our nudist lives. If you live nude most of the times indoor and outdoor, doing house chores naked is kind of obvious. However, if you are thinking about nudism, but do not know where to start, this could be one activity you want to discover naked. It’s a grea...

Naturist Idea#29 – Start a naturist-friendly AirBnB

You have available space in your house or apartment. You are a nudist. Why not creating a nudist friendly AirBnB or the gay-friendly Mister BnB, space, make some extra money and meet new people? Sure, renting a room or a part of your home requires some preparation and effort. Particularly making people feeling at home is a great part of the experience. However, this is what users of AirBnB are looking for: a great interaction and experience. Although nudism/naturism is not a search criteria, you can make it clear in the House rules and inform your guests this is a clothing-optional facility. I would highly recommend you hang a clothing-optional sign, as advised in the Naturist Idea #13: Hang a Clothing-Optional sign. This way, the tone is set as soon as your guests arrive and you can infor...

Naturist idea #28: Get naked as soon as you come back home

We all lived in a clothed world, even for those of us who chose to live in nudist communities. We all have to get clothed to go to work, run errands, or visit non-nudist friends or family. However, we can make our home a nudist haven, where we can be as naked as we want. Here’s a little ritual you can follow. As soon as you close the front door behind you, kick your shoes off, put some cool music on and head to your bathroom. Get naked and take a soothing shower. This will clean you from your day, both physically and psychologically. Then, pamper yourself with some cool body lotion and fragrance, step on a comfortable pair of shoes or stay barefoot, and enjoy the rest of your day or evening, in your birthday suit! For there on, stay naked until the next morning. You really don’t need to we...

4 ways to explain to friends and family why you are a #naturist

Special submission For many nudists, nudism is either a lonely activity or a hidden one. A lot of nudists go to the nude beach or to nudist resorts, without telling their friends or their family. They refrain taking pictures of themselves to avoid disclosing their sheer joy of being naked socially. While I believe it’s truly important to be accepted as who you really are, I understand the fear of consequences of disclosing you are a nudist. Here are four ways that I find useful to explain nudism and why you are a nudist. This complements my post on 10 reasons why I am a nudist. Use the International Naturist Federation definition: “Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature, expressed through social nudity, linked to self-respect, tolerance of differing views together with respect fo...

10 reasons why I am a #naturist and you should be too!

Special submission As we progress through life we meet other naturists and, of course, non-naturists. I do not know about you, but I have been sharing openly with more and more people that I am a naturist and I am spending a lot of time nude. I am intentional about this because I want people to feel fine and let them know that, if they come to my home without warning or if they are invited to spend a Sunday, I may be naked. The first question I generally get is why I am a nudist. Here are the best reasons I found over the years to answer this question. Because I like it To me, this is the number one reason. If I had to choose one, this would be this one and no others. No clothes, no constraints. You can move around completely free of clothes. Your skin breathes. You feel the air, the sun o...
