Nudist idea #94: Organize a beach cleaning event, naked

After winter, the beaches are not generally as clean as they were during summer. Winter storms have thrown on the shores many trashes. Spring is an ideal time to help get the beach clean for the warm season. Why not offering your arms to your municipality? With one twist: clean the beach naked to promote naturism?

Image result for nudist beach cleaningOf course, if you want to clean a naked beach, you will not need any authorization. However, if you want to be a good citizen and offer your arms, it will require some negotiation. Propose to your nudist club to go and see the municipality to see if they need help to clean the beach. Tell them you are ready to do this for free with the help of your nudist club members. You will clean the nudist part of the beach and may be others if the municipal council agrees.

If the weather does not allow you to be naked, so be it, but ensure people know that you are from the nearby naturist club and promote naturism, by offering a free day at the club to newbies. You will kill many birds with one stone: promoting naturism, recruiting new members and setting your club in the normal social setting. Icing on the cake, you will have a clean beach for spring and summer!

Nudist idea #49: Open the door naked to a delivery

If you live naked in your house, it may happen that you order something, either from an online retailer or from the local pizza restaurant. What to do when the delivery guy arrive? My answer has generally been just to open the door, as you are!

Image result for home deliveryWhat harm will you do by opening the door naked? You may shock the delivery guy, or not. I know those guys have seen generally much worse, and on top of this, they are generally in a hurry for another delivery, so they will not spend time thinking about what’s happening.

You may want to warn him or her that you are stark naked. However, if you have hung a clothing optional sign by your door, this will not come as a total surprise. You can tell the delivery guy that you are naked through the door, and ask if he/she’s OK with it? I’ve done this many times and never get a no. I’ve actually had many people telling that they themselves are nudist but never dare to do this. So, you may have some negative comments, but probably more positives than negatives. Just be yourself!

Note: I’ve chosen not to include any picture in this article, as this is generally a topic used in porn movies, and I want to make a clear cut between nudist living and any form of sexual behavior.

Nudist idea #48: Have a walk on a beach naked at night

As nudists, we all know how comfortable it is to be naked in nature. Unfortunately, not all places are nudist friendly and it’s not always possible to shed all our clothes wherever we want. However, if you are near a textile beach in the summer time, there’s some good chance you can enjoy some nudity at night.

sea-2563382_1280Very few people are going to the beach at night. Some may light a bonfire, some may try skinny dipping if the water is not too cold, but very few will and this provides a great opportunity on a cool night to stroll along the seashore, just wearing your smile enjoying the coolness of the atmosphere.

Of course, some beaches may be too lit to get naked, and you may need to find a more secluded place, but my experiences show that when there’s a will, there’s a way, and a really peaceful and enjoyable way.

Nudist idea #47: Go skinny-dipping

Skinny dipping is one of the possible entry point into nudism. Generally, you’re with a group of friends on the shore of a lake or at the sea, in a secluded spot, and one decided to go swim naked. By a ripple effect, all get naked and jump into the water

Image result for skinny dippingA lot of people already went skinny dipping. It’s interesting to read in the Wikipedia article about nude swimming that it was a common practice in a lot of public swimming pool until the early 60’s and is coming back (slowly though) with the advance of naturism.

Image result for skinny dippingGenerally skinny dippers tend to wrap themselves into towels once out of water for modesty. However, if one or two stay naked without towel, it’s a great opening to having more people to stay naked and join nudist activities. If you are a seasoned nudist, grab any opportunity to go skinny dipping and explain to people the many benefits of social nudity and nudism. We all know it’s a great healthy lifestyle and the more the merrier, therefore thank you for sharing your experiences and comments below.

Nudist idea #22: Go to Burning Man

This is one event on my To-Do list. 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.

Image result for naked people at burning manAs 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 have a lot of people enjoying Burning Man naked, as also using their own body to do art.

There are many other principles at play at Burning Man that are nudism compliant, if I can say, as “leaving no trace” and “community responsibility”.

Image result for naked people at burning manBut of course, the main objective of Burning Man is art. And enjoying or performing art naked when you are a nudist is a kind of a Holy Grail. Since the event is in the scorching desert of Nevada in Summer, be prepared to get some serious sun lotion and stock it as almost nothing can be purchased locally during the festival (including food and water). Despite many criticisms over the year, Burning Man remain strong and a wonderful time to be socially naked while enjoying art.

Why #nudism is critical and matters to society

Nudists know the many benefits of nudism and shared nudity. However, a vast majority of people, who are not nudists, see nudity as bad. We know this feeling is rooted in education as well as the fact that society has been sexualizing nudity for years. Therefore, people associate nudity to sex, and because sex is private, nudity should be. End of the story for many people.

Image result for happy nudist

Nudists have disassociated nudity and sex. Being naked is therefore normal, natural and social. With this, every nudist has been exposed to all sorts of nude bodies: every color, gender, body shape, scars, etc. Nudists know that nudism is all about being comfortable in our ones skin, with ones own body. When kids are exposed to nudism early or adults later when they embrace the nudism lifestyle, they understand that people are all different and come to respect, and appreciate, those differences.

Every time I am discussing with a nudist I do not know at a club or resort, I’m always nicely surprised by how friendly he or she is. We immediately bond because we share this wonderful lifestyle and we immediately show respect and interest. I come to believe that if nudism was more spread and accepted, people will show more respect to each other and we will face less sexual harassment situation. I am not saying that those situation do not happen in a nudist environment, predators and disrespectful people are everywhere. However, these people are faster spotted in a nudist environment, and I come to believe that by disassociating nudity from sex, people will show more respect and consideration for differences.

We have recently seen that the opening of a nudist/naturist space in Paris, in the Bois de Vincennes, has not creating an outcry, but has actually dragged a lot of naturists over the week-ends to enjoy shared nudity. Because it’s a public place, non nudists and nudists shared the same space with peace and acceptance. This proves that we can live together, that nudity is harmless, and has actually exposed nudism to more people, who may have been curious, are respecting others’ choice and may become nudists later. I hope to see this space will open again next year, sooner than this year, and that many other cities will follow suit, exposing the lifestyle to more and more people.

Nudism is probably one of the most respectful and peaceful lifestyle on this planet. There’s nothing wrong with naked bodies is the message we, as nudists, need to repeat again and again. We need to talk about nudism more and to invite all our friends and family to spend time naked together at our local club or resort, or to go on a nakation. I believe nudism is one of the best ways to grow respect among mankind, and is so critical to our well-being.

Time to grow up – nudism is normal and natural!

I find it hard to react with nothing other than hilarity that people are getting off on the idea of naked bodies, their mental capacity often stuck at age 14 regardless of however many years they’ve lived on this earth. ‘Tee hee hee…it’s a willy‘ [insert alternative pet name for penis here] shrieks some girls […]

Nudist Idea #15: Drive Naked

Driving is one of the many activities you can definitely do naked. You actually do not really need any clothing to drive. You just need to understand whether it’s legal or not in your country or state of residence, as the law may not be on your side.

Image result for naked drivingActually, even if your car is a private property, you can be seen by the public and it may therefore be illegal to drive naked. In all cases, you will use a towel to sit on and wrap around your waist in case you are stopped by a police officer.

Beyond the legal aspect, driving naked is like many other activities very enjoyable. No pants, no bra, no clothes that limit your skin breathing and your movement. You are just free as a bird, and as you can regulate the temperature in the car, it’s always very comfortable, temperature-wise.

For any naturist, driving is another activity that do not require clothing and can therefore be carried naked. The question of when getting naked and when getting dressed will pop up. If you start from home, you can probably get in your car already naked. If you start from another point where nudity is not allowed, then you will undress in your car. Depending on where you go, you may have to get dressed to get out or stay naked. Common sense will prevail.

One last point. Because you will be on public grounds while driving naked, this can be seen and interpreted as exhibitionism. But in the true naturist sense, it’s not about being seen, it’s about feeling great. And this is why the towel is a requirement. Have fun and stay safe, particularly when driving.

Nudist Idea #14: Ask for Permission to Get Naked While at Friends’

Related imageYou are invited at a barbecue or pool party at one of your friend’s place. The weather is forecasted beautiful. What are you going to wear? If your friends are naturists and know you are one, your option to get naked is open. However, there may be non naturist people at the event, and even naturists may feel uncomfortable. We’ll look into this in a moment. Now, if your friends are not naturists, your option to go naked is low. But, it’s not zero, it’s actually never zero, until you ask.

Image result for nudist among clothedBecause this is ultimately what it is all about: asking for permission to get naked! This may sound strange or awkward at first, but it will become a second nature as soon as you realize it’s totally appropriate, natural and normal! One of the best ways I found was first of all not to take any swimsuit. If your friend has a pool, just ask if it’s ok if you go naked in the pool as you have not taken your swimsuit and you are comfortable being naked. In most of the cases, at the notable exception of the presence of kids that may be shocked, it works wonderfully and you can take a swim naked. From there on, when you get out of the swimming pool, stay naked and act casually. There’s little chance your friend will ask you to dress up. Some people may actually join you skinny dipping. This will be a great victory having more people join nudism.

Image result for nudist barbecueIn case of a barbecue party and there’s no swimming pool, wait a little while. After a couple of glasses of wine or beers, inhibitions are lowering and the temperature makes people more comfortable, start taking your shirt off and at one point, ask your host if they are comfortable by you getting naked, as you are a naturist and enjoy being naked. Tell them, there’s nothing sexual here, it’s just your lifestyle. In most cases, your host will be OK and you will be enjoying some nude time, while sharing your lifestyle with others.

The fact is a majority of people are ok with others’ nudity. You just need to ask. Once again, there’s nothing wrong with being socially naked. Nothing to be ashamed of. The worst that can happen is that you get a no to your question. But, even with a no, you will have an opening to start the naturism conversation and this is priceless to get more people to become naturists.

What is it about being naked?

Come on, it continues to blow my mind, what is it really about being naked and nudism? We all have a body. All women are made the same way, all men too. Of course, some are fatter, thiner, bigger, smaller, darker, lighter, etc. However, we are all coming from the same mold (we share all a lot of the same DNA).

Therefore, the body you are looking in the mirror when you are naked is not very different from another body you could look at when naked. So what the fuss around naked bodies? Well, it’s just the way society wants us to rethink our relationship with our body: money and shame! You need to be ashamed so you can spend money, on clothing, on religion, on stupid useless stuff.

Of course, you need to get protection when it’s cold or dangerous. But in all other case, when the weather is warm, when you cannot be hurt, why wearing clothes? Because you were told so, I presume. Because you were told nudity is shameful. But no, nudity should be shameless, nudity does not equal sex.

In mathematics, equality is symmetric. Therefore if nudity equals sex, then sex equals nudity. However, you do not need to be naked to have sex. Actually, sexually attraction works generally better with lingerie or revealing clothing. Sex does not equal nudity, therefore nudity does not equal sex.

So if nudity does not equal sex, then what is it all about being naked? Actually, it should be nothing. Nudity is our natural state and should be accepted widely as soon as the temperature allows it. Nudity, once accepted in our daily life, feels really great and comfortable.

Every nudist will tell you that they love to be naked because they feel so good, without any hindrance from clothing or social convention. Nudism is a form of freedom. Social nudity places the human being at the middle. You are not judged by what you wear but by who you are. This is why so many people find relaxing to go to a nudist resort and why so many people find nudists so friendly. Nudism is pure freedom and happiness. So there’s nothing really to talk about nudism. Just get rid of your clothes and live naked! So what is it about being naked? Nothing, just be it!
