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

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

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

(Y)our first time naked in public

(Y)our first time naked in public

How many people have seen you naked already? Maybe a handful of previous partners? Maybe some close friends or family members? Maybe nobody at all? In our case, that would be many thousands. Maybe hundreds of thousands. We didn’t really keep track.   Does that idea sound daunting to you? It definitely did to us, the first time we were about to enter a place where “naked” was the official dress code. From the number … 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

Our Naked Identity

Our Naked Identity

Cypress Cove in Florida, one of the USA’s most popular nudist resorts, recently appeared in a new Netflix series called Worn Stories. Something we very much applauded, even before having seen the episode. Every time that naturism appears in mainstream media, it’s a step forward to normalizing nudity. It’s yet another time that our voices are heard and that people get to see what naturists do and what they look like.   But naturism in … Read more
