Nudist idea #6: Speak to your Friends about #Naturism

We all know that for most of us nudists, sharing with non-nudists our love and passion for nudism is not always easy. However, it’s a necessary step for a wider acceptance of nudism in our society. We all should be ambassadors of nudism with our close circle of friends and family.

Having said this, we need to acknowledge the fact that naturism is a legal lifestyle in most countries in the world that have a local naturist federation. And I would reiterate the advice to become of member of this federation, as it legitimates your status as a naturist. Of course, you do not need to be a member of your naturist federation to claim you are a naturist, but I personally found it helped.

One way to break the ice during a conversation is to share that you generally swim naked whenever it’s possible as it’s really a wonderful sensation. Most people will agree, and you can go on staying nudity can also be experienced in nature and with other through naturism. It’s then good to share the definition of naturism from the INF: “Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment”.

That some of your friends and family will find you are nuts. However, true friends will hopefully not judge you, as you are not forcing them to become naturists. However, if they are not against your views, you may propose that they join you for a day or a week-end at your naturist club, and that you will be very happy to introduce them to naturism, as it’s a wonderful lifestyle that promotes self-respect.

Who knows? If you do not try, you will not get the opportunity to bring new naturists in and to get naked more often. Naturism is an awesome lifestyle and I believe it should be shared widely if we want to live in a more tolerant world.

9 Reasons Why You Should Garden Naked

The first Saturday of May is World Naked Gardening Day. It’s come again on Saturday, May 6. The site hgtv.com published a blog post describing the 9 reasons why you should never, ever garden naked. Here are the same 9 reasons why you should in fact garden naked as much as possible, and not only on the first Saturday of May!

1: Because some bugs bite. Some bugs bite through fabric too, or can go inside the clothes, like ticks, for instance, while naked, you may spot them. Of course, do not go fetch honey in a hive naked… reason should always prevail! But to my experience, bugs will not bite you more if you are stark naked except if you move a hive and become the target of the disturbed bees.

2: Because garden tools are sharp. Protect your hands and pay attention. Knives are sharp too, you do not wear gloves to cut your steak! Of course, if you are using powertools, you will require protection!

3: Because thorns. It’s not because you are naked that you do not wear gardening gloves (see point 8) and pay attention. Of course, if you have to work on your rosebush, wear some protection. Here again reason prevails.

4: And poison ivy. And all other things that are dangerous in nature like thistle, nettle and other thorny bushes… if you have to cut those plants, cover yourself with the right attire of course.

5: Because sunburn isn’t cool. And because sun cream is there to protect your skin. Don’t you use it when you go to the beach? Use it too when you are outside in your garden.

6: And gardening involves lots of leaning over. And even when wearing a pant, nothing prevents you to kneel on a blanket.

7: But naked means no legit reason to wear Wellies. Wearing boots, you can still be naked!

8: Or colorful gardening gloves. I love them! They go well with my skin complexion!

9: Or cute safari hats. It’s not because you are naturist, you are stupid. Of course a hat is the right protection agains the sun, particularly if you are bald!

Come on, gardening naked, like any other naked activities is just awesome.

5 reasons why you should go on naturist vacation with children

A great post by SpotNaked. If you do not know what to do next holiday and have kids: pick a naturist resort and book your stay! The 5 good reasons explained are:

  1. Save Money and Time. Pack less, pay less!
  2. Easier for the small ones and less comparison. Don’t ask the kids to get dressed, no need to show off with your fancy clothes!
  3. Children learn about their body. And learn respect!
  4. Diversity leads to acceptance. We are all the same while we are all different!
  5. Get Back to You. Your natural and inner you!

And I would add a sixth one: Meet like-minded people and kids. Naturists are mostly friendly and the most naturist friends you have, the more naked time you will enjoy!
