Why You Have to Try Nudism While in Your Thirties

What’s a good age to start with nudism? Maybe the best timing is just from day one. The moment you’re born. You’re nude anyway, so why don’t just stay like this for the rest of your life?

If you’re not born in a naturist family, someone will take away your nude freedom within the next minutes.   The following years aren’t much … Read more

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 campsite 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 … Read more

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 centers. We’re talking about “centers” 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 … Read more

6 Steps to Become Comfortably 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 … Read more

The Truth About Nudism and Sex

The Truth About Nudism and Sex

It’s probably one of the most discussed items about nudism: Where comes the sexual aspect in the picture? Nudists keep saying that their lifestyle is non-sexual, but how does that really work? Are they really not attracted to other naked people? Don’t they get excited by seeing all that nudity? If nudism is such a non-sexual thing, are nudists having any sex at all? At the very beginning of Naked Wanderings we already tackled this … Read more

Is Home Nudism also a Form of Nudism?

Is Home Nudism also a Form of Nudism?

Family Naturism: Let's Just All Get Naked

Nudist Families: Let’s Just All Get Naked

We are always surprised when we receive the question of whether naturism can be practiced with the whole family. For us, family naturism has always seemed a very normal thing. Although neither of us was born in a naturist family. Yet there seem to be many doubts about this. We are asked whether we find it okay that a child sees nude adults and whether nude kids won’t attract people with wrong intentions. Some adults … Read more

How to make nudist friends

How to Make Nudist Friends

Let’s start with saying what this blog post will not be about: online nudist friend finders. Some of these are certainly a good place to get in touch with other nudists, where you can chat about your life as a nudist and where you can share your nude vacation photos. Much better though is making new nudist friends in real life. And that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today.   Especially for beginning … Read more

Does naturism really provide freedom?

Via the a survey about naturism we’ve done some time ago, we asked more than 1000 naturists (or nudists as 35% of the participants prefer to call themselves) what naturism means to them. One of the most impressive numbers came from the question about what people see as the advantages of naturism. What they gain from it. More than 86% mentioned a “feeling of freedom”. The fact that naturists feel more free when they shed … Read more
