Musings About Naturism and Religion

Musings About Naturism and Religion

This is one of those subjects which we’ve been trying to avoid during all those years of blogging. The combination of naturism or nudism and religion. The reason for this is that it’s such a difficult subject to take a stand. There’s no right or wrong. There’s no proof to rely on. It’s all just about ideas, beliefs and opinions. And it can be seen from so many different angles. Is it possible for naturism and religion to go hand…

Naturalis 2019: More Than Naturism and Yoga

Naturalis 2019: More Than Naturism and Yoga

We have to admit, the first moment when we walked into naturist camping Quinta Do Maral was something many might call… ehm… a bit awkward. We had parked our car, walked to the reception and in the distance we spotted a group of about 25 naked people. Nothing particularly strange for a naturist place, except that all of them were in an intimate embrace.   There is a reason why we didn’t mention this in our review of Quinta Do…

How to Book Your Nude Vacation Without a Travel Agency

How to Book Your Nude Vacation Without a Travel Agency

Exactly two weeks ago, news from the travel industry hit the world like a nuclear bomb. Thomas Cook, the world’s oldest travel firm collapsed. Resulting in chaos at airports and in hotels all over the world. Just like that, Thomas Cook stopped existing. But was it really just like that?   Honestly, we kinda saw this one coming. Not Thomas Cook in particular but travel agencies in general. The last time we booked a trip via an agency was back…

10 Biggest Fears of a Beginning Nudist and how to Overcome Them

10 Biggest Fears of a Beginning Nudist and how to Overcome Them

Nudism is probably one of the easiest lifestyles to get started with. You don’t need any particular skills, there’s no minimum or maximum age and you don’t need to be in a particular shape. Neither does nudism come with a specific diet and it only takes as much of your time as you’re willing to spend. Becoming a nudist literally only takes seconds. The time needed to take off your clothes. SAY WHAT? Take off my clothes? Exactly. This simple…

How Voyeurism and Exhibitionism fit into Nudism. Or Not.

How Voyeurism and Exhibitionism fit into Nudism. Or Not.

The other day we came upon a year old blog post by Dan Carlson, a.k.a. the Meandering Naturist, about naturism and exhibitionism. Since Dan’s blog posts are often thought provoking, we can rarely resist to share our own thoughts on the subject in a comment. One which often competes in size with the actual post. It wasn’t any different with this one about naturism and exhibitionism, but then we figured that we could as well publish our ideas here. On…

Why French Families go Massively for Naturism

Why French Families go Massively for Naturism

Ever since the beginning of naturism, France has been the number one country in the world where people like to drop their clothes. Today it’s not different. Nowhere else can you find such a huge amount of naturist places like in France. For many years, a common misunderstanding was that all the French just loved spending their time in the nude. They did not. Even though their country provided so many facilities for naturists, the large majority of the naturists…

Why Nude Hiking is Becoming so Popular

Why Nude Hiking is Becoming so Popular

Here’s a funny anecdote. Ever since the beginning of Naked Wanderings we now and then receive messages from naturists asking us when we will organise our next nude hike. A bit surprised we always answered something like “Sorry, ehm, we’re a naturist travel blog, we don’t organise nude hikes”. After a while it became just too strange that people kept asking us about this specific naturist activity.   It became clear when we noticed that we received this question almost…

Why is the Nude Spa More Popular than the Naturist Resort?

Why is the Nude Spa More Popular than the Naturist Resort?

The spa culture has been growing fast during the last decade or two in Europe. Especially countries like Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands are seeing a growth in visitors of spa centres. We’re talking about “centres” and even that might be an understatement. A Western European wellness center is pretty much a water park for grown ups. Often there are several swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, cold baths, warm baths and the possibility to more different kinds of massages…

6 Steps to Become Comfortable Naked

6 Steps to Become Comfortable Naked

There are many reasons why people are reluctant to engage into nudism. We believe that the number one reason, with head and shoulders, is how even the idea of being nude makes them feel uncomfortable. Basically, it comes down to shame. And basically, many of the other reasons people come up with like jealousy, religion and modesty also come down to the same thing. We don’t really like how we look. We have all these little or big things we…

When Do You Get Nude at a Nudist Resort?

When Do You Get Nude at a Nudist Resort?

This is one of the questions we often receive from first time nudists. They’ve decided to give social nudity a try, picked out a nudist resort which looks very nice and then start thinking about the most scary part of the whole experience: The point where they will have to undress. When exactly does that happen? From when are you supposed to be naked? Do you undress in the car, the moment you’ve passed the gate? Will they tell you…
