Here’s a question I saw on Tumblr today: “Mass participation in pubic hair removal has lead to hairless genitals now being the norm. Would mass erections at nudist events and locations lead to better acceptance of the erection as a natural state of the penis?”
In my mind, the answer is “No.” The natural, default state of […]
How marvelous it is to go commando in Ohio in February. When the temperature is in the mid-sixties I usually take advantage of the opportunity. When temperatures are warm enough to permit full nudity I’m frustrated that society is not enlightened enough to permit it as well.
Nudity is our natural state, our default state of […]
Charlie Hebdo and Naturism ~ Stéphane Deschênes, Bare Oaks Blog
The article doesn’t so much relate naturism to the Charlie Hebdo attack as it talks about intolerance of views contrary to your own and taking offense to opinions, life choices and behaviors that you don’t embrace.
Blasphemy and offence only exist when people who consider the ideas, […]
Nudity is our default and natural state. We all entered the world in that state and we felt no shame or embarrassment as we saw our first light and took our first breath. As we grew older we learned how to feel shame and embarrassment about our bodies from our parents, our teaches, our churches, […]
PETA’s ads featuring nudity and saying “We’d rather go naked than wear fur” are not positive statements about nudity. Obviously, they make the point that wearing fur is bad. They also infer that being naked isn’t good either but it’s preferable to wearing fur, the lesser of two evils.
Personally, I’d rather […]
“Body acceptance is the idea…Nude recreation is the way.”
Body acceptance and nude recreation are, in my opinion, only starting points in the naturist lifestyle. For some, that may be enough while others take it further and look upon naturism as a genuine lifestyle. I suspect that even those who are content with the recreational […]
A couple of items from the 3 June 2010 Nudist Day blog:
A Canadian nudist has been ordered to cover up in his own home! The 63 year old gent had thought that it was well within his rights to be nude anywhere on his property in Repentigny, Quebec, but neighbors thought otherwise and called the […]
There has been much talk about the full body scanners in the aftermath of the “Christmas bomber”. I’ve read much of it but generally haven’t gotten involved in the discussion. I’m opposed to them, not because some TSA employee will see a naked image of me but because I feel it’s another government intrusion of […]
A Skinbook member posted Top Ten Things That Are Killing Australian Nudism and expanded on each as he felt it applied to nudism in Australia. I’m not going to reiterate his comments. Instead, I’ll add my own interpretation of how these points affect naturism in the U.S.. If you’re on Skinbook, you’ve probably seen the […]
Leave mooners and nudists alone is an editorial that appeared in the August 2,2009 edition of the Orange County Register. Despite a few factual errors, it’s very supportive of nude recreation at San Onofre.
Southern California still has the international reputation as being a fun-in-the-sun place. The reality has been whittled away by government officials and […]
