The Price of Naturism

The Price of Naturism

Every now and then, the discussion about the financial aspects of naturism seems to pop up on social media. It’s one of those endless debates that live on a pilot light most of the time, but a little spark is enough to start yet another series of heated tweets. Recently, such a spark came from Hector Martinez (quite known for not fearing controversial topics), when he talked about how censorship on mainstream social media forces … Read more

Will the future of the internet be beneficial for naturism?

Will the future of the internet be beneficial for naturism?

During the last year or so, we have been bombarded by new terms coming from the online world: Metaverse, blockchain, Web 3.0, NFTs, DAOs, only to name a few. And just recently, the news got out about Elon Musk buying Twitter, the last big stronghold for online naturists. This covers us in a blanket of uncertainty. Are the days of online naturism officially over? Or will these new changes actually create many new opportunities?   … Read more

Musings about Naturism and Sex

Musings about Naturism and Sex

We’ve talked about naturism and sex before on this blog, and it’s a topic that has been discussed more than enough in naturist circles. Or is it? The reason why we decided to tackle this once again is two comments on our content during the last week that show that there still is quite some misunderstanding.   By now, we believe that most people already understand that naturism is not a synonym for orgies and … Read more

What can we learn from Latin American nudists?

What can we learn from Latin American nudists?

When you think about naturist destinations, countries like Colombia, Peru, or Bolivia probably aren’t the first that pop into mind. And if they do, it’s probably more in the sense of “Wouldn’t it be great if there was naturism in Ecuador?”. Well, we can tell you, there is. And not just in the aforementioned countries, but also in several other parts of Latin America.   Don’t expect Caribbean-style resorts or French-style village-sized campsites though. Naturism … Read more

Naturism vs. Nudism: It's a cultural thing

Naturism vs. Nudism: It’s a cultural thing

Are you a naturist or a nudist? Or something else?   This question is a very common topic in naturist communities, especially online ones. Until about five years ago, we would have told you that we are naturists. No doubt. Because where we come from, if you can come up with any other reason to enjoy being naked except for just the sake of it, you are a naturist.   In fact, to us, the … Read more

Can you really get naked on every beach in Spain?

Can you really get naked on every beach in Spain?

If you’re following the naturist news on social media, it was hard not to notice the interesting news update that came from Spain. The City Council of Cadiz in Andalucia announced that from now on, all the local beaches would be naturist friendly. This might have come as a surprise to some of you because Spain happens to be that one country in which it’s known that it’s okay to be naked on all beaches. … Read more

GetNakedGermany: A Chat with the Founder

GetNakedGermany: A Chat with the Founder

Everywhere we go, there always seems to be someone who’s completely convinced that naturism is declining. The clues are everywhere. Naturist federations struggle to get new members, naturist clubs see their average age rising, and newspaper articles report on how bathing suits have become the norm at communal showers. Our youth has become prude is a common conclusion.   We refuse to believe this. Something is happening, that much is sure, but we are rather … Read more

Will mass tourism kill naturism?

Will mass tourism kill naturism?

About a year ago, we visited the Racó del Conill nude beach, just south of the Spanish city Benidorm, for the first time. Little did we know that due to the upcoming travel restrictions, this would become our naturist getaway for months to come. We loved spending time at this beach. It was the middle of winter, but thanks to the surrounding mountains that blocked the cold wind, clothes-free sunbathing and even an occasional skinny … Read more

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
