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 afternoon relaxing just like anyone else and we do appreciate a game of petanque once in a while, we want more!

 

We (like in Nick and Lins) love city tripping for example. A couple of days away exploring a different culture, tasting different foods and watching life from a terrace with some craft beers or local wines… Who doesn’t like that?
Some time ago, these kinds of vacations were hard to combine with a nakation. But nowadays the cities start to see the advantages of also providing options for the naturist traveler who wants just that little bit more. Paris, which happens to be one of our favourite cities in the world, is luckily also one of those cities where you can combine the traditional city trip experience with a whole new clothes free one. No, sipping a wine on Montmartre in the nude is still not one of the options, but today you can easily extend your city trip with a naked day.

0:00 – 11:00 Sleep
One of the reasons why people travel is to relax and to get away from the rat race and sleeping is of course an important part of the relaxation process. Normally you would find yourself a nice hotel or Airbnb but for your naked day you better find an option that better serves your needs.
The website NaturistBnB already gives you some options. For those who really want to stay in the centre of town there’s one in the Marais (that’s like really really in the centre) and a cheaper option can be found just outside of the city in Saint Denis.

 

Of course, especially for the European naturist, camping is in our blood. But no worry, if you prefer to travel with your tent, there are two naturist campgrounds south of Paris called Heliomonde and Bois de Valence.
Waking up naked without having to worry where you left your pants yesterday evening has never been easier.

11:00 – 15:00 Relax
Sleeping is relaxing, no doubt about that. But do you know what’s even more relaxing? A spa of course. Clothing optional spas are big in Germany and the Netherlands but France is finally starting to pick up the ancient tradition of bathing naked as well. And it was about time! Seriously, swimming in a costume is annoying but who on earth wants to be in a sauna with a bathing suit? Personally, they could not get us into a clothed sauna with a burning stick.
Luckily in Paris there’s no need for fire or sticks. Aqua Saint Paul lets you be as naked as you want to be.
Warm up in the sauna, chill in the hammam and the hot tub, maybe treat yourself to a nice massage and afterwards have a drink and a bite in the bar. The afternoon has just begun and you’ll already feel like a new person.

15:00 – 19:00 A walk in the park
Okay, you’re all refreshed and honestly, you didn’t come to Paris to spend your time inside, right? Let’s get some sunshine!
Although Paris is a huge capital and concrete is everywhere, there are several very nice green spots to be found. One is even prettier than the other and now there is even one where you can be naked: Bois de Vincennes. We have been there just recently and if you don’t want to make the same mistake we made, do check the actual location of the naturist part before you get over there. This park is huge and there are no signs pointing towards the clothes free part. If you did forget to check the location, here’s how you ask the locals: “où est la partie naturiste?”.

 

Anyway, one of the advantages of not being well signposted was that we didn’t see any peeping Toms while we were there. The naturist part of the park was very well separated from the rest and surrounded by woods. We arrived on a sunny Saturday afternoon and even after 6pm there was a pretty large crowd. The only thing that did bother us a little was that the large majority of the visitors were men. Nothing against that, but we can understand that the single woman or group of women might not feel completely comfortable.
We are huge fans of the park though, come on, how many major cities do you know where you have an outdoor spot to be naked right in town? So here’s a big shout out: If you go there, please take your wife, your sister, your female chemistry teacher, your grandmother, your friend Judy, whoever… Let’s help rising the amount of women at Bois de Vincennes so all women can feel comfortable there!
If you’re a woman and you’re not sure about visiting the place, ANP organises a monthly picnic during the summer months and then the crowd should be more diverse.

19:00 – 22:00 FOOD!
France is all about “du vin et du pain” (bread and wine), but the French cuisine is something that has no equals. A visit to Paris means little if you’ve been living from McDonalds during your whole stay. A disadvantage of being in such a tourist city is that often you’ll be served average food for a ridiculous price. We’ve all been there, we were promised a real French dinner and were served something our blind 99 year old aunt Jenny could prepare better. Honestly, we feared that O’Naturel, the first naked restaurant in Paris would be a similar tourist trap. It was nothing like that at all! Although they easily gained world fame because of the nudity, they served us the most amazing dishes we had in a long time. And that in the centre of Paris, we could barely believe it. We even keep telling our textile friends that they have to check out the place. “Just go naked, the food will make it worth it”.

22:00 – 23:00 Train it off
We knew from before… our visit to Paris would be a serious attack on our weight. Why does everything over there have to be so delicious? Why did we really want to have a desert at O’Naturel?
If you’re concerned about your weight, we have a pretty good solution for you. From Monday to Friday, ANP has a gym ready to train away all those newly gained kilos. A naked gym of course! If you just like some exercise to better digest that dinner, you could also opt for a late night swim. Also naked of course.

 

 

23:00 – … The night is young
Honestly, we don’t really have something particularly for this last hour of the day. But we also didn’t want to call this blog post “23 hours naked in Paris” (that would be really ridiculous).
There are some options though. You could get back to your bed and sleep naked from 11pm to midnight. You could check out the Moulin Rouge, they won’t allow you to be naked but at least it has something to do with nudity or (and this is our best advice) check out the event page of ANP and book your stay according to one of their events. Maybe you’ll exchange the gym for a nude bowling, maybe you’ll exchange O’Naturel for a theme dinner or maybe you’ll spend that last hour on one of their monthly drinks… We’re sure you’ll find something to remain clothes free until the end of the day.

  1. First this .. “…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”

    Then this “Anyway, one of the advantages of not being well signposted was that we didn’t see any peeping Toms while we were there..The naturist part of the park was very well separated from the rest and surrounded by woods.”

    Hm .. lol.
    But anyway, im gonna have to not really agree about the 21th cent thing .. the 21th cent is nothing to be dwell about ,cause even u see how many problems u have with FB and Insta, ,and if it wasnt for such or any social media, if u look at mainstream TV, newspapers and kiosks , the only close to nudeness,sexual or not, u would see is on MTV ,Fashion TV ,or porn.
    Having that in mind, id say the 21th cent is a major hypocrite cent so far.
    I say and shall always, that if there is a decade that can be talked about as a tolerant and most openminded in those sences ,is of course the 70s.. 60s too prolly, i ment all this in the modern era, ancient times had theeeeir thing, but that was long long ago ,cant really compare.

    But ya who knows, times might be coming back, its always like a circle that goes around.
    Its like that with everything.

  2. Nick & Lins you just sold us on a trip to Paris! Yet again your account of what the city has to offer the Nude explorer sounds too good to be true. But your words are like gold to us and we believe that if you say it it is so!….Mind you! Nothing would make Michelle and I happier than to tour da France with y’all!😍 Maybe if we win the lottery some day!

    Until then be well Mes Amis! Loving your blog posts more and more each day! Cheers!🥂🍾
