"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 […]

Body Acceptance

Body acceptance is one of the basic precepts of nudism and naturism. We accept our bodies and the bodies of others as they are with all of their colorations, markings, scars, tattoos, piercings, folds, cellulite, et cetera. Everyone’s body is unique and there are no “perfect” bodies. Even if we don’t find some bodies aesthetically […]

Naked Yoga

In recent years I have found two things that have been life changing and have changed my outlook on life in general. They are naturism and yoga. Each has a philosophy behind them that I find appealing and I have found many common threads between them so it seems natural for me to combine them […]

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 […]

Sauna Etiquette

This isn’t exactly Naturism but since my earliest mixed-gender nude experiences took place in the sauna and the sauna is a place where being nude makes perfect sense and should be a requirement, I thought these 5 Simples Rules of Sauna/Steamroom Etiquette seemed appropriate.

Don’t SPIT on the sauna rocks!
Get permission before you crank up the […]

Sexuality and Nudism

Most nudists will emphatically declare that nudism is non-sexual. We tend to deny the existence of any sexuality in nudism so much that most people think we are either covering it up or are completely against sex. Whichever impression people get, it’s the wrong impression.

I can only speak in terms of my own experiences and […]

Naked Friday in the office

A business consultant in Britain boosted team spirit and performance in an office by having them work naked. He had them perform various tasks in the days leading up to the Naked Friday to help them get over their nervousness. The experiment was filmed and Naked Office is to be screened July 9th on the […]

A Perspective on Nudism

Here are some words on nudism and naturism written by nuderunr in the forums on the True Nudists site. He’s new to the lifestyle and, as of the posting, had not yet experienced social nudism. But he clearly has done his homework and understands what nudism is about.

My Perspective on Nudism

I actually did […]

Body Acceptance

When I go to a buffet I always notice people who should not have the phrase “All you can eat” or the word “buffet” in their vocabularies. I know that sounds judgmental but I’ve always had a problem with obesity in that I can’t comprehend it as a lifestyle choice. That also seems to be […]
