Nudist idea #31: Stop buying swimsuits

I cannot believe I started this thread of 100 ideas already one month ago. Already 30 ideas were published and read by more than 20,000 people! Thank you for all your comments and encouragements. So coming to the idea #31, it goes well with the nudist idea #29, avoid textile beach. When you do not own swimsuits, you will not be able to go to a textile beach.

I have only a couple of swimsuits left, and I am not sure what I will do when the last one get so old, I cannot wear it anymore (I may need to keep one, in case of, but not even sure… time will tell).

It just shows why we need all beaches to become clothing optional, so the world can get rid of this useless piece of clothing. And once you do not own any of those swimsuits, textile beaches are no longer an option and sharing your love for nudism becomes easier as you will have to tell friends and families that you need to go to the nude beach or that you will be naked if they join you on your premises if you have a swimming pool.

Nudist idea #29: Avoid textile beaches

Swimming and getting tanned naked is a kind of a no-brainer. If we can avoid bathing suits at all costs, we will. Hence, we need to avoid textile beaches!

There are dozens if not hundreds of nude beaches, have a look at those two previous posts Top 10 World’s Most Popular Nude Beaches and Some of the World’s Best Nude Beaches. Now, there may be beaches closer to home or the place you are spending your holidays (if not, you need to rethink your next holiday, with the nudist idea #23: Plan your holiday with #nudism in mind). And if there are definitely not a single sign of a nudist beach in the vicinity, you may walk a little bit more, to find a secluded area or a spot further away from textile sunbathers to disrobe completely.

It is noted that some beaches are clothing optional, without being tagged as official nude beaches. Common sense should prevail in those instances, and you may get naked if you are not the only. Although I’ve noticed than in some cases, sometimes the first one who gets naked sends the nudity signal, and others generally follow through. Not always the case, but you may want to try if you are brave enough. If you happen to be a group of nudists, you can all get naked and create your own portion of clothing optional beach.

You will not want to avoid some beautiful places on the planet under the reason they are not clothing optional. The solution is then to wear as little as possible and accepted a swimsuit, and take it out as soon as you are in water. You will not avoid totally the tan lines, but you will enjoy some nude swimming.

Nudist idea #11: Go on a Naked Cruise

I am not a big fan of cruises, but they are gaining in popularity every day. Join naturism and cruise, and you get naked cruises. Some travel agencies specialized in naturist holidays are proposing those cruises that happen in the Caribbeans, the Pacific and on the Mediterranean.

Of course, one of the immediate benefit of a nude cruise is the ability to be naked while on board during the whole journey. And since, it’s a nude cruise, you will be surrounded by like-minded people. The First-Timer’s Top 10 Lessons is a great article to get an idea of what to expect from the cruise.

As the Bare Necessities travel agency states, “there are no strangers on bare necessities cruises, only friends you have not met yet.” And I would say this is mostly true of any nudist venue. Being with nudists for some time, you will get new friends as you will have at least one this in common: your love for nudity.

A naked cruise will allow you to get two things for the price of one: having a nakation and traveling to new places. There are naked cruises for everybody, from small sailboats to big massive cruise ships. Looking over the internet, you will find some travel agency who specializes in such cruises. So if you think about spending a vacation on a cruise, consider a naked cruise, a great alternative to simple cruises and a great way to come back with this all over tan you wanted and wonderful pictures for your photo album.

How to deal with voyeurs at the nudist beach

Imagine the following. You are quietly reading and tanning. The beach is big and almost empty, with very few people scattered around, each naturist enjoying the biggest possible space (and that is being 15 to 20 meters away from each other). Then all of a sudden, a man sets his towel at exactly 2 meters away from you and your spouse.

On the positive side, this person gets naked, so fits in. On the negative side, he stares at you, and more intensely at your spouse. This creates almost immediately an uncomfortable feeling.

This just occurred to us yesterday, as we were enjoying the nudist beach. It happened that we were actually about to leave, so the situation just accelerated our departure.

However, the question of voyeurs remain. I believe this guy was there to watch us, enjoying the naked beach. On the one side, since he was naked, he can enjoy the naked beach. He can watch people too as long as his attitude is not lewd. On the other side, by the place he chose, we felt watched. Did he voluntarily sat there to watch us, I do not know but it felt like this. So the question is how to approach this situation?

If we were not about to leave, I would have approached and asked this man why he sat 2 meters away from us where he could have any other places further from anybody? And I would have shared that we felt watched by him. What would you have done? I would appreciate your comments and ideas?

The 10 commandments of the naturist at the beach

Ok, it’s winter! If you can, you may be on a nudist beach in the Caribbean or in Central America. If not, you are sitting naked close to a warming fire thinking about your next nakation. In all cases, next time you are at the nudist beach, here are 10 commandments to observe for your wellbeing and the one of the other naturists who share this piece of sand.

  1. Thou shalt be entirely naked.
  2. Thou shalt not stare at others.
  3. Thou shalt not take picture without asking permissions.
  4. Thou shalt behave appropriately.
  5. Thou shalt cover your body with sun lotion.
  6. Thou shalt take enough water to stay hydrated.
  7. Thou shalt leave the beach clean by taking your garbage with you (including your cigarette butts if you smoke).
  8. Thou shalt make nudity respected by asking textiles to get naked if they want to stay on the nude side of the beach.
  9. Thou shalt help to expel gawkers and exhibitionists.
  10. Thou shalt participate to organized activities.

And an eleventh pour the benefit of naturism development:

11. Thou shall invite family and friends to join you so they can discover the joy of naturism.

My First Time At A Nudist Resort

What can we expect more that those kind of articles that stands as an epiphany for the naturist lifestyle? This post from Abigail Moss on Refinery29 titles My First Time At A Nudist Resort is more that a just a story of a first timer, it’s a great testament to what naturism is about. Here are some exceprt I really liked:

  • “I am not a naturist, I suppose is what I’m saying. Or, at least, I wasn’t, until a couple of weeks ago.” Well, when the article finishes with “Next summer, we’re going back.” I bet Abigail is now a naturist, particularly with the below.
  • “I took the shorts off and nobody looked, nobody pointed, nobody laughed. Obviously not. Everyone else was naked too.” And yes, this is the first “surprise” of any non naturist visiting a naturist resort, naturists don’t see naked people, they just see people who happened to be naked. Respect is probably the number one value among naturists, and nakedness is definitely shared.
  • “On a beach, being naked just makes good practical sense. No swimsuit for sand to get all caught up in, no tan lines to worry about.” All is said.
  • “And once you’ve been naked on a beach, why not at a bar, or in a corner shop, or a swimming pool?” Yes, this is the beauty of feeling well naked and being with naturists, it just becomes the new normal. It’s actually quite strange how it becomes so natural quickly. No t-shirt, no pant, just you!
  • “We’re all just people. Various sizes and shapes and levels of hairiness and wrinkliness and tan, but, basically all the same.” Yes, this is the second “surprise” from non naturist: body acceptance, oneself and others. You may be surprised the first times, then do not pay attention to it anymore, we are just human beings and feel great to be among people who are not making a statement by wearing so and so clothes.
  • “Being naked, I realised, doesn’t expose you at all – it makes you anonymous and equal.” This is a huge discovery and probably the most important ones, as it explains why our body is not sexual by nature, we have sexualized it over time. Gaining our freedom back to be naked makes us better, I think.
  • And the last: “Flying home to headlines and TV reports filled with hatred and division, there’s something very comforting in having discovered a place where people are just people.” Naturism is the best lifestyle I know, the one that makes people who they truly are, just human beings who aspire to a good life.

Share this article among your non naturist friends and you may convert them to naturism. They may join you to your next club meeting or naturist holidays. It’s said nakations are the best vacationsm and it’s even better with good friends!

Every Beach Needs to Be Clothing Optional and Here’s Why…

I cannot agree more. Actually, I believe ALL beaches should be clothing optional. Wear something or nothing! But you may say that people will be offended by nudity, sure, but nobody obliges them to stare. Nudity should one of the available clothing options. Good read on body shame and “real” people.

Clothing Optional Trips

Yes this post is my opinion as to why every beach should have a clothing optional section but my reasons for this are probably not what you would think. Follow me and see if you agree. /Cover photo from PeterGreenberg.com

kardash There is nothing real about the Kardashians yet they are role models to many young women and men.

Nothing about the Kardashian family and their “reality” is real. Yet they are undeniably the hottest thing in Hollywood and are role models (dear God did I just write that?) to countless fans including many young women. Their fashion, their product endorsements and their bodies sell.

While I disagree with a lot about what the Kardashian sisters represent, it’s their bodies that I have the most trouble with and why I wrote this post. I know you’re asking, “What do the Kardashians have to do with promoting access to clothing optional/nude beaches…

3 naked activities for a spring week-end

Eh… TGIF! And tonight the week-end starts. So as I was thinking about what to share today, I came up with three activities that I will do over the week-end weather permitting of course, and that you can do too. Nothing fancy, nothing expensive, nothing incredible, just three simple activities that do not require clothes apart from a hat if the sun shines and good shoes if the terrain is spiky. Here we go!

  1. A naked hike. Open a map of your surroundings, a hiking map if possible, spot a nice track you have not done, grab your shoes, your hat and some sunscreen. Pack some snacks and water, a lot of water, and off you go. 4, 5 or 6 hours of total nakedness in nature.
  2. A naked swim. It’s beach time again. The water will be chilly for course, but cold water is very good for the skin and for overall health. So grab a towel, sunscreen, snacks, water and head to the nearest naturist beach. A great way to gently start your overall tan for the coming summer.
  3. Naked gardening. If you happen to have a garden, take care of it. Mow the lawn, prune dead branches and gather the remaining of the leaves from the last winter. Make your garder beautiful so all flowers blossom in wonderful colors and shape.

As I said, nothing fancy, nothing expensive, just pure happiness in the best suit ever, your birthday one. Many if not all activities can be undertaken in full nudity, so go for it, it’s the best feeling ever!
