Review: Domaine Laborde in Monflaquin, France

Review: Domaine Laborde in Monflaquin, France

Our trip through the French Aquitaine region was already half way and we figured that it was time to leave the coast behind. We had visited several wonderful naturist beach campings and our next destination, Domaine Laborde, would take us towards another very famous tourist destination: The Dordogne. Domaine Laborde is part of the Natustar group, a collaboration of six naturist campings in France with the purpose of promoting their domains and naturism in the region in general.   We…

The Naturist Talks: Raven from Canada

The Naturist Talks: Raven from Canada

One of the main reasons why we started this project is to show the world that naturists are not some strange dark commune but that actually everyone could be one… Or could enjoy being one if they took the first step.   Our main example of “everyone” is of course ourselves, we write posts about naturism in general but also about our own experiences. But some of you might be thinking “Yes sure, those two are probably just the strange…

Review: Arnaoutchot in Vieille-Saint-Girons, France

For the next stop on our little “Tour de France” we drove further south towards a department called Landes, another popular tourist destination at the Bay of Biscay. A major landmark in the southern tip of this region is Biarritz, once a hotspot for the rich and famous in the early 20th century and now mostly known for its magnificent surf. More north of Biarritz is the huge regional park Landes de Gascogne with a mix of wetlands and pine…

Why do teenagers turn away from nudism and is that such a big deal?

Why do teenagers turn away from nudism and is that such a big deal?

Toddlers are born naturists and not only literally (although they’re obviously delivered naked). In fact they might well be the most genuine kind of naturist there is, they don’t even question their nudity. Most of them will question clothes though and if they see an opportunity to get rid of them they’ll often take advantage of that. Our memory doesn’t go that far back, but we would like to remember the day when being nude was not an option anymore….

Review: CHM Monta in Vendays-Montalivet, France

Review: CHM Monta in Vendays-Montalivet, France

The origin of naturism has been subject to a lot of debate. Many historians who studied the lifestyle will point out a period in early 20th century when the German Dr. Heinrich Scham wrote the book Nacktkultur. Some however say it started already during the industrial revolution when a Belgian guy first used the term “naturism”. And others will tell you that it was way earlier, during the Roman times, when naked sports were more common than clothed ones. Honestly,…

Review: Euronat in Grayan-l’Hopital, France

Review: Euronat in Grayan-l’Hopital, France

When people talk about going to the south of France, immediately the Mediterranean coast pops into mind. The mild weather, the long beaches where bikini tops have always been a rarity, places like Nice, Cannes and Saint Tropez where half of Hollywood has a boat in the harbour and of course the world famous naturist destination Cap d’Agde. We often forget that the south of France has another coast, the Atlantic one, which is (at least to us) even more…

24 Hours naked in Paris

24 Hours naked in Paris

We are often surprised about how many textiles still think that naturism is only practiced in our own “naturist camps”, or worse… (oh, the horror) in our “colonies”. Come on! This is the 21st century! The times when we spent all our pastime being naked around a lake somewhere far far away in the woods is long gone. Now that naturism starts to attract more and more young people again, the options have to be larger. Although we like an…

That time at the INF World Congress

That time at the INF World Congress

More than often we have been aiming our arrows towards the INF-FNI (International Naturist Federation), we complained about their inability to modernise and worried about whether one day it will all fall apart. Most of all we wondered what they are actually doing for the naturists or naturism in general. Over the years we’ve sent them several e-mails to which we never received a response and so we just criticised them a little more. As a consequence, we started to…

O’Naturel: The first naked restaurant in Paris

O’Naturel: The first naked restaurant in Paris

During our last days in Canada, the clear blue sky started to look more like a pattern of fifty shades of grey (pun intended). When eventually there were more days when we preferred a good jacket over our naked skin, we knew it was time to go. The Canadians tried to convince us that an Indian summer, when temperatures would rise again, would definitely be coming, our minds were already made up. We had something else to look forward to,…
