"Nudity is our ideal state, our pure state, our natural state, our default state. Clothing is always a deviation from the default and is, therefore, a compromise and an aberration.."

"Body shame originates in our minds with our thoughts and perceptions. Neither our religion nor our culture makes us ashamed of our bodies, only our belief that we should be ashamed. Shame comes from our own thoughts which we have the power to change. If we perceive no shame then there is none. No one can make you feel ashamed without your permission."

Picturing Myself Naked

This morning, while perusing my Twitter feed, I happened upon a link to Why I Don’t Agree With Many Naturist Groups by Lim, a Taiwanese naturist whose blog I referenced previously in Nude Hiking in the Alps. While on his site, I perused many other articles he’s posted. One of the things he’s adamant about […]

Naked Dream Memory

Today Facebook presented me with the following memory from seven years ago:

“Had that dream where I was the only one naked. In this dream everyone was totally oblivious to my nudity. It was no big deal. Cool, eh?”

In the past decade, I haven’t found the infamous naked dream to be about insecurity, fear, and embarrassment. […]

International Read Naked Day

Yet another day set aside to do something naked. Reading, like so many other activities, is something that I prefer to do whilst in my natural state, yet due to infringements from the textile world, I do not not have enough opportunities to pursue it in in that way. Today was no exception. Life goes […]

National Camera Day

Apparently, today is National Camera Day and in my Twitter feed I saw that AANR-West was promoting the day with images of nudists wielding cameras which struck me as a bit ironic considering that many nudist venues prohibit or restrict the possession or use of cameras on their grounds. Some venues ban photography entirely while […]

Hiding in the Shadows of Fear

Hiding in the Shadows of Fear

I am lucky in comparison to so many who are trapped in their workspaces and living spaces by the weather. I remember looking out on sunny winter days when the temperature was harsh, longing for a bit of freedom to escape au naturel into the world.

At least I was clothing […]

Why I prefer Naga Yoga

Some reasons why I prefer Naga Yoga as my practice:

Comfort. I feel more comfortable nude. I accept my body as it is which gives me a foundation for change.
Awareness. I tend to be more aware of the wholeness of my body rather than a collection of parts. I’m better able to visualize my alignment and […]

Naked Time

I enjoyed some extended naked time today. I had a naked lunch, watched a couple of films on Netflix and did some reading. Why do I enjoy my naked time? I believe that it’s because I simply enjoy the comfort of being nude. Other factors such as the feeling of freedom, the physical and mental […]

Penultimate Day, 2012

“I simply find myself caring about the issue less and less. It’s not a passion for being naked that draws me to nudism, but ambivalence about being clothed. For some people it may be about a thrill, or a movement, or even some sort of cause, but for me it’s just about being comfortable.” ~ […]

The Freedom to be Free

Freedom to be free

I admit it. I am frustrated and kind of angry that there aren’t more places to be nude, places where I am free to connect with nature in a way that I feel God intended.

First, I don’t know why on Earth it should bother people that anyone is without clothes. […]

25 Words or Less

From Share Naturist Beliefs: "How about it, naturists? Can you state your naturist ideals in twenty five words of less? Would that explanation make sense? Do you understand it yourself?"

Let me take a stab at it.

Naturism is being comfortable in your own skin, acceptance of and respect for yourself and others and a powerful expression […]
