author Anthony Crowley seeking to expand naturist options in hometown

Naturist calls for more facilities in Dudley LONDON’S first naked restaurant has just opened its doors and now a naturist is calling for Dudley to follow suit and offer more facilities for those who feel more comfortable in the buff. Anthony Crowley’s hopes for the borough include library reading groups, exercise classes in leisure centres and places to sunbathe. He said: “It would obviously need to be private and away from the general public out of respect but I think the public should be more accepting of these things, it’s 2016 now, times have changed. There should be more facilities and recreation areas for naturists.” The author and poet said there are naturist facilities in Birmingham and Telford that he visits occasionally but said it is “too far away”. read more – Source: Worcester News

A photographer learns that baring it all isn’t so bad

#The Naked Truth of Washington’s Clothing-Optional Park The word “nudist” comes with some baggage. It conjures the image of sexual deviancy and a world where standard rules of ettiquette don’t apply. Jordan Stead, a staff photographer for, found the contrary to be true. Nudism, or “naturism,” has a lot of rules. Most of the etiquette at the nudist park he photographed is common sense. Don’t stare. Children must always be supervised by a parent or guardian. All members and visitors need a background check. The “take-everywhere sitting towel” is a necessity, because as the official park rules stipulate, “it’s a common practice to place something between your bare buns and any public surface you sit or lie upon Stead first became aware of Fraternity Snoqualmie’s family nudist park when he saw a portrait by Alan Berner of the Seattle Times. Three older men, completely nude, were photographed holding volleyballs in front of their nether regions. The picture remained in Stead’s mind until April 2014, when he embarked on a photo story about the park …

Ottawa Naturists President tells CBC “Being a naturist isn’t about sex or exhibitionism”

Being naked is a ‘sense of freedom’ for naturists He describes naturist (also known as nudist) gatherings this way: “It’s a sense of freedom, lack of badges of your status in society, and everybody is the same. You can’t tell right off the bat whether somebody is a lawyer, a member of parliament, or a teacher or a plumber or whatever.” Thompson is the president of the group Ottawa Naturists. Members hold family-friendly events and meetings in private spaces like camps. While the gatherings are meant to be fun for like-minded people, Thompson says there are some stereotypes they regularly have to confront. See video where Thompson describes naturism as ordinary people doing things without clothes. Source: CBC News Ottawa

Mid Winter Naturist Festival Review – The UnMasking Ceremony Workshop

Although my husband and I only went for one day, it was a beautiful day of the Festival. We met so many wonderful people. We encountered so many wonderful things, wonderful families and children. It was a wonderful sight. We do anticipate returning next year for the whole festival. That one day gave us a great taste of the wonderful world we would encounter or live in if we just removed the sexualization of the Human Body we were all programmed to have except for the children raised on this camp and camps similar to it. Anyway, for those of you who have yet to experience such a festival, I truly recommend you visit at least once and experience the naturalness of the human body Source: Mid Winter Naturist Festival Review – The UnMasking Ceremony Workshop

The why of being naturist

The Who, the What, and the Why of Being a Naturist If you check the archives of this site you will see a gap of three months, the time I spent in Mexico at the beginning of 2014. It was as if I was denying naturism and my role in that world. I was trying to twist myself into a more acceptable version of myself, one that would more easily be in relationship with those closest to me, and the world in general. I still struggle with how I can be in my world and be a naturist at the same time. I already knew that being nude, especially in nature was therapeutic for me. Yet, I began to doubt that this was a therapy that I truly needed, that perhaps there was a better way to be mentally well. I had tried counselling, psychological analysis, meditation, Buddhism, and so many more therapeutic modes for more than twenty years without being able to achieve the level of inner peace that I had found in nude …
