Why Society Is Better Off Swimming Nude Without Bathing Suits I’m not one of those nudies that feels compelled to be naked 24 / 7, and I would say that many nudists can’t be and don’t care to be naked everywhere, all the time. (I’ve mentioned this before in the common myths about nudism.) I’m quite comfortable wearing clothes in the winter. I get cold very easily and am grateful for the sweaters I have to keep me warm. Though I’m not much into fashion or clothes shopping, I do like dressing up sometimes and expressing myself with certain colors, fabrics ... Read more
A Social Media Guide For Naturists, Artists and Anyone Who’s Tired Of Their Nudes Getting Censored As a naturist, my problems with censorship and social media are never-ending and I know many in my community can relate. I’m currently in Facebook jail, yet again, for posting nudity. I’ve had photos censored on Instagram, videos banned from YouTube, and my Pinterest account was even deleted without notice or warning. Facebook censorship of nudity and its meaningless community standards Most of the major social media sites have rules against showing nudity and female nipples. They either ban it altogether or say it’s ... Read more

The beach was once a safe, family-friendly environment that attracted several hundred people on summer weekends. On the convenient eastern end, people in bathing suits came to exercise their dogs and watch the world-class surfers practice their skills. The more ... Read more
The Life of Artist Lucian Freud and His Magnificent Nude Paintings ”What do I ask of a painting? I ask it to astonish, disturb, seduce, convince.” — Lucian Freud The late Lucian Freud was a contemporary painter most known for his figurative art and portraits. The grandson of Sigmund Freud, Lucian was born to Lucie and Ernst Freud in Berlin in 1922. In 1933, he and his family fled to Britain to escape the growing persecution and fascist policies of the Nazi party. They settled in London. As his parents were well-to-do, Freud attended various private schools and then studied ... Read more
Nudism & Gender Issues: Let’s Talk About Safety and Harassment It was good to see that my last article about naturism and single male policies generated a lot of discussion on our website and on social media. It seems like most people actually agreed with us that naturism should be inclusive rather than exclusive. I’d added a poll at the end of my article asking if nudist resorts, clubs, groups, etc should restrict entry to single men in order to have a better gender ratio. Out of over 400 votes, the overwhelming majority – nearly 80% — said “No.” Twelve ... Read more

The couple is originally from Germany and when they moved to Ontario, Canada, they saw a market for a year-round naturist club in their area. They found some farmland to buy and together with Hans’ ... Read more
Why The NSFW Filter Isn’t Good Enough On Ello and Other Social Networks April 2018 Update: So it’s been almost 4 years since I wrote this post, and I’m glad to report that Ello is still around as an ad-free network that primarily caters to artists. I still use it and would recommend it to naturists, even though I don’t think it’s attracted very many people from the naturist community. The network has also continually grown and added new features. However, the NSFW filter remains the same, and Ello still groups nudity in with “adult” and “sexually explicit” content. (And they ...

How the Textile Industry Demonized Nudity and Flourished in Times of Colonization Guest Blog by: African American Naturist While most people don’t think about the historical political impact of the clothes they wear, textiles and the textile industry has in fact had a tremendous impact on societies around the globe, and still do today. It must be remembered that prior to the European Renaissance and Industrial Revolution, the majority of Earth’s human population was (and still is) centered about the equator in tropical and semi-tropical regions. European and other temperate zone, sub-arctic, and arctic populations traditionally required hand-made clothing (typically ... Read more
