Nudist idea #32: Participate in World Naked Gardening Day

World Naked Gardening Day is one of those days when nudity and nature are celebrated. You will find more information on the 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.

On top of this, it can bring more people to naturism and to accept their own bodies. It’s a great occasion to organize a clothing optional barbecue at your place and expose people to the joy of being naked together outside. It’s actually one of the most important goals of this day: sharing. Sharing the day, sharing the fun, sharing the experience!

Nudist idea #17: Participate in a WNBR

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.

As it’s written on the WNBR site: “Be creative and colorful in expressing yourself!Bodypainting, bike decorating, kustom themes, and other creative expression is strongly encouraged!”

Nudist Idea #13: Hang a Clothing-Optional sign

NoticeOne of the best ways to increase nude time and our nudist friends is of course to let acquaintances know that you are a naturist. For many reasons, it’s not always possible to shout out loud that we are naturist and we want to spend more time naked. We have seen in previous ideas how to leave traces of our nudism, like leaving our naturist publications openly on our coffee table.

You will find those signs available on Internet. Just go to Amazon, look for “Clothing Optional Sign” and you have tons of options to chose from, including metal and wooden panels, some being really nice.

I particularly like the Notice sign (the one above), indicating that nudists may be see beyond this point. If you hang this one next to door bell, this is a clear sign that anybody pressing the bell may encounter nudist. This is a great way to open the door naked in any circumstances.

Of course, it will also allow your friends and family to ask questions if they do not know you are a naturist. And here comes a great way to break the ice, and let everybody knows that you have adopted the naturist lifestyle.

If are on DIY side, it’s always possible to make your own sign. For instance with driftwood or any recycled material, showing some ecological mindset. Ideas are limitless in this case.

Share if you have such signs at your place and where did you hang them. We appreciate your comments and remember to Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!

What Do I Want For Nudists?

Here’s another article that provides wishes or hopes about naturism. The author makes for wishes:

  • I want nudists to be treated like human beings. I agree, although, I do not think nudists are not treated like human beings, they are just marginalized. Now we have to face a harsh reality: nudists are a minority, and as such our rights need to be recognized. So my wish is that nudists have to be treated like normal citizens with their own rights to get naked, if they wish.
  • I want no one to feel like going naked is something they have to do. Freedom of choice is the basis of any democratic society. Respect is one of its byproducts.
  • I want God to use nudism for good. As usual, not sure about this one, however, nudism is good and should be perceived as such. There’s no shame in being naked and there should not be any shame seeing others naked.
  • I want nudism to be a force for change. This is probably the strongest wish, however, we can only do this if we become a political party, as change as become highly political. Ecological parties are the closest to naturism, fighting to save humanity through the protection of the planet. So, stand out for what you are, come out as a nudist and embrace the political reality to become a force of change. Nudism as to come out of the closet to become a force of change.

Food for though for the week-end. While you think and answer (comments highly appreciated), get naked, stay naked, live naked and share the naked love!

8 ecological positive effects of naturism

Nudism plus nature equals naturism. Ecologists want to protect nature to give our children a clean Earth. Although each of us may have a different point of view on ecology, here are 8 positive effects naturism has on ecology.

  1. Naturists wash less. We wear less clothes, therefore we need to wash less and consume less detergent.
  2. Naturists purchase less clothes. We wear less, we need less, and we purchase less. Bleaching, synthetic materials, transportation put a tax on the planet. By consuming less clothes, we reduce our footprint.
  3. Naturists tend to be more nature conscious. Naturism contains nature in the world. We can see a lot of discussions on green products and behavior on naturist’s forum. I tend to think this is linked to our sensitivity to nature and fragility of the human being.
  4. World Naked Bike Rides are naturist events that do not contribute to increasing greenhouse effect. Riding a bike is healthy and ecological. Bring the city back to pedestrian and cyclists!
  5. Naturists tend to more simplicity. By being naked, we tend to believe in simple pleasure and simpler life. Less gizmos, more connections. Less electronic, more humanity.
  6. Naturist’s locations tend to be nature friendly. Most naturist resorts are in beautiful natural places, doing their best to preserve what Mother Nature has to offer. We need more places to be naturist friendly by observing simple ecological rules
  7. Respect is one of the values of naturism. Respecting nature and ensuring we leave a clean place to our kids is one of the values I have always encountered with naturists.
  8. Most naked activities are healthy and nature friendly. Naked hiking, naked swimming, naked volley-ball, just to name a few activities do not require to harm our natural environment, but to benefit from it.

I am sure there are lots of other positive effects on nature by living simply in harmony with nature, entirely naked. Our nudity makes us more receptive to our surroundings. You are more alert to what nature has to offer to our ears, eyes, nose and overall body.

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