On the heels of the fresh paint on our sister site myclothesfreelife.com this site will be moving to a new home. So we want to take a moment to tell you what that will mean. First we have told you that we are on a hiatus form posting on this site. That will end once the move is complete. In fact there are new posts and newsbytes waiting. The new site will have a new look and some new features that we have been unable to provide so far like a directory of related web sites with user submission, a new event calendar. We will be migrating our email and web followers to the new site. There might be a down period as we make the switch. Some things won’t change however. Still great original content, still news you want to read, still stories from ordinary people living clothes free. The new site will allow to expand our scope and reach. So so stay tuned for clothes free life 2.5!
Please stand by as we are making a few changes to the web site that may cause a few glitches. For the next couple days we won’t be posting much until we complete the upgrade so “bare” with us. There are some cool things coming on the other side.
I happened to be crossing the bottom half of the state today. I was on my own and with no fixed schedule, so I decided to not take the most direct route home. Instead, I detoured a little south and made a stop at Cedar Trails Nudist Retreat (CTNR) in Peebles. I’ve been wanting to check out this resort for some time, but just never seemed to find the opportunity to drive down that way.In anticipation of going to CTNR, I decided to do most of my driving naked, with the exception of an unbuttoned shirt. The net effect is that I’m sitting in the driver’s seat, naked except for the sleeves of the shirt. I think that this helps to keep people from wondering what is going on in my car if they should notice a totally bare chested man driving down the road. There’s just something about a naked road trip, sun roof open, windows down and the wind of 65 MPH whipping through the car. I love it!CTNR was not difficult to find, but is …
The nudist invasion of a Welsh beach today should not offend – nakedness has nothing to do with sex This morning those who harbour quite literal naked ambition will be heading for the Vale of Glamorgan for The Great British Skinny Dip. The event which invites swimmers to skip into the waves off Monknash Beach unfettered by bikinis, bathing costumes or Speedos has been organised by British Naturism. While everyone else seems to be wondering what is the politically correct line to take on France’s burkini ban, the governing body of British nudists is telling us to get our kit off. Completely. All in the cause of healthy living, of course. Naturists always push stripping as a lifestyle activity as wholesome as a vegan super salad. According to a spokesman: “This great event will provide lots of opportunities for people to try costume-free swimming across many varied locations, whilst having fun and raising awareness of how many people’s buttoned up attitude to the human body is causing them to lead potentially unhealthy lives.” read more …
Topless Parade’ participant gets punched in throat by leering man The attack unfolded at the corner of 47th Street and Second Avenue, after the near-nude woman spat in the man’s face following an inappropriate comment, witnesses said. When the man, clad in a checkered red shirt, tailed and eventually confronted her, the woman spat in his face again, according to bystanders. He then clocked the exposed co-ed in the throat and shoved her before police closed in on the duo. Both were cuffed and led away from the rally, where only about 50 women and men bared their breasts to expose the lack of “equal topless rights for all.” The lack of support did not go unnoticed by those who opted to doff their tops — many taking part in the rally noted the crowds were mostly made of up gawking men and creeps with cameras. read more – Source: New York Post curator’s note The newspaper’s coverage is equally detaining in the way the parade participants are described.
A detail from Michelangelo’s statue of David/ It’s not working the way it should! It used to be longer and harder. What the #%&#@ is wrong with me? It’s one thing to be flaccid as the day goes on, but what about when I am trying to make love to a person I love? There… via Body and Mind – In Harmony or in Conflict — Naturist Lens
A friend of mine in cyberspace sent me an email commenting and wondering about my photos which generally let the viewer know that I am skyclad, but somehow not showing my penis. Now this practice makes sense if using social media such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter; but it doesn’t make sense on a naturist… via Erections and Perceptions — Naturist Lens

I thought that this month it’d be very appropriate to organize a sports competition, mini-Olympics of a kind – in the nude, of course – to remind about the origins of the Olympic games in Ancient Greece, and very much in spirit of Active Naturists and our Gymnasium project. https://vimeo.com/143572484 ? We’ll have a few events throughout the day on Saturday, 20 Aug (raincheck Sunday) at my favorite Gunnison beach on Sandy Hook peninsula (just across the bay from New York City) : long jump around noon; wrestling around 2pm running and swimming races during low tide time – to run on wet sand/swim in shallower water – between 3pm and 5pm; 100m and 500m; discus throw (frisbee) at 6pm; + there are always volleyball games going on at Sandy Hook; and maybe we can even have some gymnastics and capoeira! https://vimeo.com/69651813 Look out for our Gymnasium banner on the right hand side of the beach (looking at the ocean). See you!
“Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one’s mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down.” . Clarissa Pinkola Estés:Women Who Run With The Wolves: I believe in beautiful strong women Love, Naja
Six women strip naked to show off their new bodies after weight loss Three quarters of women dislike their body and one in five say they never look at themselves naked. And if we are honest we all admit to feel a little less than confident with our bodies in front of complete strangers. But for six women fear is in the past after they banished their hang-ups and let it all hang out for a weight loss version of the Full Monty. To celebrate the launch of WeightWatchers magazine’s first ever Naked Issue, six brave members posed nude to celebrate their new-found body confidence. Here are their stories their reason behind their battles: read more – Source: The Mirror
