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

Musings about Nudity, Censorship, Copyrights, and Cleo

Musings about Nudity, Censorship, Copyrights, and Cleo

Last week, Cleo from Topless Topics announced that she’s throwing in the towel. Although we should rather say that she’ll wrap it around. For the longest time, Cleo has been promoting gender equality and the right for women to be top-free on pretty much every social medium out there. But one after the other kicked her out and shut her down. Why? Because she leads her movement by example. In all her content, she would … Read more

How to get More Diversity in Naturism?

How to get More Diversity in Naturism?

During the second Simply Naked Episode, we talked quite a bit about how we see the future for naturism. About what is going well and what might need to change. Or updated, if you wish. With quite a young panel, the topic of the aging naturist was quickly brought up. Not just the fact that many naturists we meet are often older than ourselves, but also the stigma that has been created by this phenomenon. … Read more

The Pressure of Going Naked

The Pressure of Going Naked

A couple of years ago, we’ve been front row spectators of one of the saddest scenes that we ever encountered on our naturist travels, and we’ve seen quite a lot. Remember, we’ve been to Cap d’Agde once. This had nothing to do with sex though. We were lazing away in the sun beds of a very genuine naturist resort and in the corner of our eye, we saw a new couple arriving from the reception … Read more

10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Visiting a Nude Beach for the First Time

10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Visiting a Nude Beach for the First Time

These days, you can find a book for pretty much everything you’d like to try. We all know (and often own) the For Dummies series, for example. With more than 2 500 titles, they have a guide for almost everything. Wanna learn about the World of Narnia, beach Babies Jigsaw Puzzles, or Zombies? There’s a For Dummies Guide for that. Some even have a double “for”, like eBay For Canadians For Dummies. But there’s no … Read more

Musings About the Double Standard in Naturism

Musings About the Double Standard in Naturism

During our first years as naturists, we thought that we had a pretty solid idea of the scope of naturism. From our experience, naturism was generally practiced as a couple, most naturists are middle-aged or above (with the exception of a handful of naturist families) and naturists can be found on campgrounds, on beaches and in spas. It’s an idea that stuck with us for quite a long time. Until we started exploring what else … Read more

How to find other nudists

How to Find Other Nudists

Nudism is a social thing. Although there definitely is a large group of home nudists, the large majority of nudists do enjoy social nudity. The most obvious choice for your first nudist friend is, of course, your partner. Next up are your kids. Just like so many things in life, also nudism is better if you can share it with your loved ones. But what if you don’t have a partner or a family or … Read more

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.

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
