Are we making a joke of ourselves?

Are we making a joke of ourselves?

Our friend and colleague blogger, The Meandering Naturist, decided some months ago to take a break from blogging. A pity, if you ask us, as this blog has numerous times been an inspiration for our own blog posts. Luckily, Dan’s writings don’t come with an expiration date and continue to influence our own thoughts and ideas.   Like the other day, when we stumbled upon this short article about the 5 funniest names of nudist … Read more

The things you don't say to a nudist

The Things You don’t Say to a Nudist

We have been wanting to write about this topic for a while, especially when we see yet another social media post about nudism, and the comments section is filled with remarks about the person’s physical appearance. Many times, those comments don’t leave much space for interpretation. A “you look great” could be considered sweet or friendly, a “nice boobs babe” is rather… well… yeah… Pretty annoying.

When the INF-FNI Suddenly got Two Presidents

When the INF-FNI Suddenly had Two Presidents

Back in 2018, we attended the World Congress of the International Naturist Federation (INF) for the first time. We had little to no idea about how organized naturism works, but we figured that this was the event that we had to attend if we wanted to be inspired. It turned out to be quite a disappointment. Instead of hearing about great plans and visions to make the world more naturist-friendly, we mostly spent our time … Read more

The things we often miss while glamping

The Things We Often Miss While Glamping

The summer in Europe has come to an end, many naturist campsites have either already closed their doors or will do so in the following weeks. Half a year ago, we didn’t dare to imagine how busy this summer would end up being. Then suddenly, the world started opening up again and we quickly started making plans to hit the road. Before we realized it, we had a busy itinerary ahead of us, one that … Read more

Naturist Talks: Interviews with naturists and nudists

Naturists Share their Best Newbie Tips

When we wrote a blog post about our first time naked in public a while ago, it occurred to us how long this has actually been. Meanwhile, there’s so much time and experience between those first scary steps into naturism and where we are today, that we wonder if we are actually still a reliable source of information for those who want to try naturism today or tomorrow.   For a long time, we have … Read more

Naturism as a Business Model

Naturism as a Business Model

The other day, we took part in an interesting Twitter conversation (if we had a dollar for every time that happens) about whether or not naturism should become more commercial and whether there is a need for naturist business models. Will it improve naturism as we know it? Or will it backfire and take down the whole non-profit concept on which naturism was initially built? Will fully embracing capitalism be the next step towards normalizing … Read more

8 Worldwide Naturist Destinations for Foodies

8 Worldwide Naturist Destinations for Foodies

When we travel, we prefer to stay in resorts where we can spend at least some of our time without clothes. Not just because we love to be naked or because we find it more comfortable (and time-saving) not having to stand in front of a closet or backpack picking an outfit. Equally important, because we like naturists. We like the friendly social atmosphere that is so typical at naturist resorts.   Spending time at … Read more

5 Tips for Planning Last Minute Naturist Vacations

5 Tips for Planning Last Minute Naturist Vacations

A couple of months ago, we were among the first tourists that were allowed to enter Italy again after the 3rd strong wave of the COVID pandemic. That was in early June, quite a popular travel period as the weather in Italy is not that hot yet as in the high season, but definitely already naturist-friendly. From our talks with the resort owners during the weeks that followed, we learned about the many cancelations.   … Read more

Why does the naturist get dressed for dinner?

Why Does the Naturist Get Dressed for Dinner?

During one of our first naturist camping experiences, we were invited for a communal dinner. This is pretty common at naturist resorts. Sometimes it’s a kind of potluck where everyone brings something, other times one of the guests or the staff cooks the meal and you just pay for it. In any case, it’s always a great opportunity to meet the other visitors of the resort and often a very social experience.   We didn’t … Read more

The Geographics and Demographics of Naturism

The Geographics and Demographics of Naturism

What’s the deal with naturism around the world today? Is it growing or shrinking? Are naturists getting older or younger? Is gender imbalance still such an issue?   During our naturist travels to different countries and continents, we’ve learned that evaluating the evolution of naturism or nudism on a global level is pretty impossible. We noticed, for example, that in regions where a naturist culture is still quite new, like in Asia and South America, … Read more
