Naturist Hub - Is it possible to create a genuine online platform for naturists?

Is it possible to create a genuine online platform for naturists?

This is the question that kept us awake one night in the early spring of 2020. We had been active on social media as naturists for years and although we managed to create quite a genuine community, we were still often disappointed, discouraged, and disgusted when we received yet another dick pic or sexual comment. Had these people learned nothing from our posts? Was all our promotion of non-sexual nudity just an illusion? And most … Read more

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

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

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

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

Will Vloggers Inspire the World to Get Naked?

Will Vloggers Inspire the World to Get Naked?

Last week, The Meandering Naturist asked a question that most promotors of naturism are struggling with: Is social media worth the effort in a naturist world? Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and the likes are often seen as the enemy because they have strict censorship rules that demonize the human body in its natural form. Why would we invest time (and let alone money) in something like that?   On the other hand, these are unique tools … Read more

The Misconceptions of Naturism, What we Know Now

The Misconceptions of Naturism, What we Know Now

One of our very first blog posts, which we wrote almost 5 years ago, was called “The Misconceptions of Naturism“. It quickly became a cornerstone article and set the path for what Naked Wanderings would become. We would answer the questions that people often have about naturism. We would inspire others to give it a try and remove the taboo by tackling the misconceptions.   Today, we believe that we can say that we have … Read more

Normalizing Nudity, What are the Next Steps?

Normalizing Nudity, What are the Next Steps?

After 4 years of Naked Wanderings, we like to think back to how it all started. How we had this crazy idea to quit our jobs and start traveling the world in search of naturist places. How we decided to be completely open about our naturist life and share every aspect of it on this blog and social media. How scary it was the first time that we appeared butt naked in a newspaper and … Read more

Living in a nudist community

Living in a Nudist Community

When we traveled to Spain, several months ago, our initial plan was to arrive in Alicante and start traveling south from there. One of the places we definitely wanted to visit was Vera Playa, a so-called “naturist village” in the north of the Andalucia region. That was the place where we had hoped to write this blog post because people are actually living there and spend their lives (when the weather permits it) pretty much … Read more

Naked Digital Nomads

Naked Digital Nomads

For a long time, digital nomadism was just this new hippie thing for the younger generations that didn’t want to settle down just yet. People who wanted to travel the world, but didn’t really have the savings to do so for a very long period of time. The internet created opportunities, and especially in the ICT sector, it became quite easy to find a job that didn’t require you to come to an office every … Read more
