Naturist idea #27: Participate in World Naked Gardening Day

On the 27th Naturist Advent Day, we suggest: World Naked Gardening Day is one of those days when nudity and nature are celebrated. You will find more information on the wngd.org website. It’s happening every year on the first Saturday of May, and this year on May 5, 2018. Why garden naked? I will quote the WNGD website: First of all, it’s fun! Second only to swimming, gardening is at the top of the list of family-friendly activities people are most ready to consider doing nude. Moreover, our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment. Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us–even if only for those few sunkissed minutes–that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet. I really thi...

Nudist idea #26: Live entirely naked for 2 full days (and 3 nights)

You did one day, you can do two! This is just about a full week-end. From Friday evening until Monday morning: Not touching a single piece of clothing for two full days (and three dull night). How does it feel? I can tell you that for having done it multiple time, it still feels great! Of course, this may require a little bit of planning and it needs to be really intentional. A few things to consider to make these two days a success. First, the weather needs to be on your side: warm, including the evening (nothing greater than to spend an evening outside under a full moon, naked). Second, you need to ensure you get everything stocked so you do not need to leave your premises (the best is to spend the week-end at your local naturist club or resort, so everything will be available without re...

Naturist idea #25: Sleep naked

It's Christmas Day and #25 on our Naturist Advent Calendar This is probably the most obvious idea of all and a good start if you are not nudist to appreciate the comfort of your own body. I cannot remember the last time I slept wearing something and I cannot imagine sleeping wearing anything. I know that may be a controversial topic as many people love their PJs and cannot imagine being naked, with all those nasty bacterias and their clean soft expensive sheets. However, there are many, many benefits to sleeping naked that have been described extensively by doctors. Just Google “Sleep naked” to find tons of articles and posts on the topic. One of the many benefits is, of course, the comfort. If you are a home nudist, no need to get up and undress or dress to go to bed! Just sleep as you ar...

Naturist idea #24: Organize a clothing-optional BBQ

Everybody loves barbecue. It’s fun, friendly and yummy. I love as much the preparation of the barbecue as the barbecue itself with a bunch of friends. If you happen to be in a nudist resort, you can also go shopping naked, but I will come back on this in a future post. However, preparing the food, the meat, marinade, sauces, veggies and so on is fun too. Send the invitation to a group of friends, nudists, and non-nudists, and inform all that it will be a clothing-optional party. This means that some people may be naked as, you and others, are seasoned naturists, although it’s not sexual but social. It may happen that some of your friends will not want to come as nudity is not their things. I encourage you to insist a little bit and share them a couple of online resources to educate them on...

Naturist idea #23: Plan your vacation with #nudism in mind

If you want to increase your nude time, one easy way is to pick a location where you can be naked for your next holiday. Of course, it should not be the only criteria, but one among many. There are plenty of places in the world that have nude beaches, nude resorts, nude hotels and even nudist friendly B&B. You should plan what you want to visit, how much you want to be naked and what kind of setting you would like. A while back, I’ve written 7 tips to plan your next nakation. I encourage to read it to put your ideas into a tangible plan. It’s not rocket science, just careful planning to ensure great nude time. What I really find cool is it seems there are more and more options for naked holidays, even in countries where not so long ago it was difficult to find a naturist resort or beaches,...

Naturist idea #22: Go to Burning Man

Naturist advent calendar #22 I've been to Burning Man 3 times. Both for art and nudism. Burning Man is an art and community festival that takes place in Nevada every summer. Burning Man is driven by a set of principles. One is “radical self-expression”, which means that participants are encouraged to express themselves, and as such, nudity is allowed. As the organizers state: “Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.” This leads to having a lot of people enjoying Burning Man naked, as also using their own body to do art. There are many other principles at pla...

Naturist idea #21: Invite your friends to undress when coming to your place

Unless everyone knows you are a nudist and expect you to be naked when coming to your place, this is not an easy one! However, it’s a very pleasant one, as you can be yourself, naked, even if your friends are not embracing a naked status. Being naked with friends is a pleasant experience. All nudists know this. Bringing non-nudists in a nudist setting is, I believe, even more pleasant, as it enriches their own experience and enlarges our nudist circle of friends. Although the first step is to share to your friends that you are a nudist, and we went through some ideas on how to do this, like, the Naturist idea #7: Leave your #Naturist Magazines on your Coffee Table. Once they know, then ask if they would like to share some nude time. If so, you can start at home or at your local club. I ten...

Too naughty for Facebook

I went through the secret Facebook group's photos and deleted anything that was outside their community guidelines. I couldn't just delete them, so I saved a bunch for here: (You can navigate through the photos by clicking on one, then using the → and ← arrows on your keyboard.)

Naturist idea #20: Participate in World Naturism Day

As per the Holidays calendar, the International Nude day takes place on July 14. However, a World Naturist Day exists as well and takes place the first or last Saturday of June. Whatever the right date is, you may ask your national naturist federation about the exact date they are going to celebrate. Because this day is generally backed up by your national naturist federation, it’s an excellent opportunity to organize legal events about naturism. For instance, organize a nude beach for a day at your local lake, or an open door at your club. Whatever the activity, it’s a day to break the ice and invite people to discover naturism and naturists. The World Naturism Day is fun, family oriented and a day of sharing. Sharing our love for naturism, our respect for mankind and our openness. It’s a...

Naturist idea #19: Participate in nudist forums

Naturist Advent Calendar idea #19 Sometimes, home nudist can feel alone. Hopefully, the Internet provides a lot of opportunities to interact with other nudists through forums. There are many nudist forums, from Reddit to Naktiv, and many others. The first time you connect, you will be required to create an account. Participating in forums is important. It’s not just about being a spectator, but really being an actor. Share your experience, comment on others, participate actively. It is said that the more you give, the more you get. And one important thing you will get is a better understanding of nudism. You will discover that there is a ton of people out there who share the same desire to be naked, to have more nudist time and are true nudists. On very important point is to be respectful ...

Naturist idea #18: Garden Naked

This is one of my preferred naked activities: gardening. If you happen to live in a house with a garden, you have no choice but to take care of your garden. And this is definitely an activity that you need to carry naked with a pair of good shoes, gardening gloves, and a hat. Whether you prune your trees, dig a hole, plant something or mow the lawn, you can stay naked. One of the only exceptions will be when you are using power tools like a chainsaw when protection is required. Other than this, being naked is much, much more comfortable. One of the many benefits of gardening naked is that you will not dirty any clothes. You may get dirty, but a good shower will clear your skin completely. Another benefit is that you can sweat freely, without having sticky clothes. Of course, one of the mai...

Naturist idea #17: Participate in a WNBR

Idea #17 in our Naturist Advent Calendar As per Wikipedia: “The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is an international clothing-optional bike ride in which participants plan, meet and ride together en masse on human-powered transport (the vast majority on bicycles, but some on skateboards and inline skates), to “deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world.”  For us nudists, WNBR is a unique chance to be naked outside for a good cause. If you want to know when and where is the next WNBR, the best source is the Official WNBR website. You will find on the site all necessary information to participate in any WNBR. While WNBR is fighting to give cities back to pedestrians and cyclists and is using nudity to increase the conscious of the fragility of human being, WNBRs are fun events. At...
