Taking a #naked break

My dear nudist readers, I am taking a break from blogging for the next 2 months, or so. Not that I will stay clothed, to the opposite, but I need some time to work on serious projects, including, among other things related to nudism, my Nude Tales book. I won’t say more for the moment. I may pop in once in a while on Twitter or on WordPress, but will publish far less. In the meantime, as autumn will start pretty soon, I wish you all naked warm days and keep the nudist spirit up!

Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!

Edit: This does not mean I will stop publishing here. I’ve planned posts every three or four days for the next 10 weeks. I will just be much less present to use my time in productive work. Stay tuned and stay naked!

What is the way forward for naturism?

Larry Darter, the Dallas Nudist Culture Examiner, has just released an article on the way forward for naturism, somehow in réponse to Reg Barlow’s article, from Naturist Action Group, entitled “Is Clothing Optional the Way Forward for Naturism?“.

Whereas Reg favors clothing optional for nudity acceptance, Larry favors nude only places. Both have strong benefits that you can read in both posts. However, I think Larry has a point when he talks about rational arguments that do not work with irrational people: “…the minds of people who are opposed to public nudity on the basis of any of them [rational arguments] will most likely never be changed because irrational people are rarely impressed with rational arguments.”

When reading that statement, I immediately thought of why naturists are naturists? We are naturist because we feel good naked. Up to a point that if you want a non-naturist to become naturist, the best argument is “try!”. To me naturism is irrational. We can explain it rationally, but it’s only by being naked and feel how liberating it is that naturism becomes an obvious social activity.

So I agree with Larry, we need more nude beaches, nude parks, nude places where nudity would be enforced by volunteer patrols similar to the Beach Ambassadors organization at Haulover Beach in Miami-Dade County, Florida. And we need to become a vocal minority to reclaim our rights to be nude and have more nude places.

What do you think? Is clothing optional or nude only the way forward to naturism?

Women in naturism

I just wanted to share this article from All-nudist on women and naturism. It’s generally agreed than there are less women in naturism than men. Though if you have female friends or spouse, share this article and the resources it points to. They may help get more women embrace this awesome natural lifestyle.
