Nudist idea #23: Plan your holiday with #nudism in mind

If you want to increase your nude time, one easy way is to pick a location where you can be naked for your next holiday. Of course, it should not be the only criteria, but one among many.

Image result for nakationThere are plenty of places in the world that have nude beaches, nude resorts, nude hotels and even nudist friendly B&B. You should plan what you want to visit, how much you want to be naked and what kind of setting you would like. A while back, I’ve written 7 tips to plan your next nakation. I encourage to read it to put your ideas into a tangible plan. It’s not rocket science, just careful planning to ensure great nude time.

Image result for nakationWhat I really find cool is it seems there are more and more options for naked holidays, even in countries where not so long ago it was difficult to find a naturist resort or beach, like Thailand or South Africa. This allows for Northerners to go South in winter to spend some cool nude time, outside of the classical Central America or the Caribbeans, where options are plentiful! This will allow to mix some relaxing nude time with the discovery of a new country, new people, new culture and great place to visit. Having best of both worlds is a kind of a gift these days. As for many things in life, spending a little time to plan your next holidays with nudism in mind will increase your naked happiness!

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.

Nudist idea #21: Invite your friends to undress when coming to your place

Unless everyone knows you are a nudist and expect you to be naked when coming to your place, this is not an easy one! However, it’s a very pleasant one, as you can be yourself, naked, even if your friends are not embracing a naked status.

Image result for naked friends at home

Image result for nudists at homeBeing naked with friends is a pleasant experience. All nudists know this. Bringing non nudists in a nudist setting is, I believe, even more pleasant, as it enriches their own experience and enlarges our nudist circle of friends. Although the first step is to to share to your friends that you are a nudist, and we went through some ideas on how to do this, like, the Nudist idea #7: Leave your #Naturist Magazines on your Coffee Table. Once they know, then ask if they would like to share some nude time.

If so, you can start at home or at your local club. I tend to prefer the local club, as it provides a total naturist experience with people who are used to welcome newbies. Once this step is over, you can propose that they join you naked at your place and therefore get naked on arrival if you have invited them for a moment at your place. Nudism is a wonderful lifestyle, as nudists know it. For sure, we cannot be naked every single minute, but the more, the merrier, and inviting your friends to drop their clothes off is a great way to increase nude time!

Nudist idea #20: Participate in World Naturism Day

As per the Holidays calendar, the International Nude day takes place on July 14. However, a World Naturist Day exists as well and takes place the first or last Saturday of June. Whatever the right date is, you may ask your national naturist federation about the exact date they are going to celebrate.

Image result for journée mondiale du naturisme

Because this day is generally backed up by your national naturist federation, it’s an excellent opportunity to organize legal events about naturism. For instance, organize a nude beach for a day at your local lake, or an open door at your club. Whatever the activity, it’s a day to break the ice and invite people to discover naturism and naturists.

Image result for journée mondiale du naturisme

The World Naturism Day is fun, family oriented and a day of sharing. Sharing our love for naturism, our respect for mankind and our openness. It’s a day to show people that naturism is about being free and happy with our own body, respecting others and nature, and having fun with friends and family. So if you have not yet planned anything, have a discussion with your naturist federation, and plan fun activities for this day. An excellent way to strengthen our naturist bonds and bring more people into this awesome lifestyle!

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.

Nudist idea #19: Participate in nudist forums

Sometimes, home nudist can feel alone. Hopefully, the Internet provides a lot of opportunities to interact with other nudists through forums. There are many nudist forums, from Reddit to Naktiv, and many others.

Image result for nudist in front of computer

The first time you connect, you will be required to create an account. Participating in forums is important. It’s not just about being a spectator, but really being an actor. Share your experience, comment on others, participate actively. It is said that the more you give, the more you get. And one important thing you will get is a better understanding of nudism. You will discover that there is a ton of people out there who share the same desire to be naked, to have more nudist time and are true nudists.

Image result for nudist in front of computer

On very important point is to be respectful of others. Nudists pride themselves of being respectful to others. We love being naked and with other naked people, since we do not judge people on how they look. The same should happen on nudist forums. Of course, there will be disrespectful people, however those will generally be banned by the administrators quite quickly. So show consideration and be a respectful nudist participants. And beyond all this, have fun! Being a nudist is all about being happy naked, sharing this joy is a blessing!

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 #18: Garden Naked

This is one of my preferred naked activities: gardening. If you happen to live in a house with a garden, you have no choice but to take care of your garden. And this is definitely an activity that you need to carry naked with a pair of good shoes, gardening gloves and a hat.

Whether you prune your trees, dig a hole, plant something or mow the lawn, you can stay naked. One of the only exceptions will be when you are using power tools like a chainsaw when protection is required. Other than this, being naked is much, much more comfortable.

Image result for nudist gardener

One of the many benefits of gardening naked is that you will not dirty any clothes. You may get dirty, but a good shower will clear your skin completely. Another benefit is that you can sweat freely, without having sticky clothes.

Of course, one of the main questions is what about if your neighbors can see you? Well, you will need to check with them, as they may be annoyed. Being naked on your premises is always challenging if people around you are not aware. But once they know and agree, it may be OK. Have fun gardening naked!

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.

Image result for wnbrAt a WNBR, you can get entirely naked, wear as little as you want or have your body painted. Your choice! 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 #16: Live entirely naked for 24 hours

A great way to appreciate nudist living is to commit to living as much as possible naked. One way to get more into it is to commit to spending a full day and a full night entirely naked.

Image result for having a nudist breakfastLet’s say you wake up on a Saturday morning at 8AM, commit to not wear any clothes until the next morning! If you commit to doing this at your local nudist club, it will be much easier that if you commit to doing this at home or in a public place. However, you can plan it ahead!

Plan to spend a full week-end at your local nudist club one summer. Arrive early on the Saturday or even on the Friday evening and leave all your clothes at home (if you can drive naked) or in your car, until the end of the week-end. Try to commit to this, even the evening is a little bit chilly. If it’s the case, plan to stay in your bungalow or tent until the temperature gets warmer.

Image result for home nudistIf you decide to stay at home, stock enough food to avoid having to go shopping and plan some cool activities like reading, watching the series or the movies you wanted to watch, or catching up on DIY projects. Whatever you chose, stay naked until the next morning.

One thing you will notice over time will be you forget you are naked. Your nudity will become so normal, wearing any piece of clothing will feel strange on your skin. Nudity will become so comfortable you will want not only to spend 24 hours naked, but the whole week-end and probably more. This will be the sign that nudism has really sunken into your skin.
