The European Spa Etiquette

The European Spa Etiquette

Many naturists take their first steps into social nudity at the nude beach. But in parts of western Europe, another phenomenon is quickly becoming the new number one place where people get naked with strangers for the first time. Or even with friends. Especially in countries like Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, the wellness or spa center has proven to be a great stepping stone for naturism.   Of course, these countries are not particularly … Read more

23 Idyllic European Private Winter Getaways on Airbnb with a Hot Tub

The winter months are typically not the best time of the year for naked vacations. Many naturist resorts in the northern hemisphere have closed their doors and the options are limited to indoor naturism. Like the spa and sauna centers in western Europe, for example.   Although we definitely agree that there’s nothing better than skinny dipping at a naturist paradise with the summer sun warming up our bare bodies, there is something about being … Read more

What You Need to Know Before Having a Nude Massage

What You Need to Know Before Having a Nude Massage

We love massages. They are so relaxing, and if they’re done well, we feel like a different person once we walk out of the massage room. Our muscles feel as if they’re brand new and that sweet smell lasts until your next shower. If we were rich, we would probably have massages every day. In fact, that’s pretty much what happened in Thailand. We didn’t get rich there, unfortunately, but the massages are amazingly low … Read more

European Countries with a Nude Spa Culture

For many European naturists, including ourselves, a visit to the spa was the first experience of social nudity. This isn’t a coincidence. The step to try a nude spa is just a lot smaller than a visit to a naturist club or resort. While the latter encourage nudity, bathrobes and sarongs are embraced at the spa. Nudity is only obligatory inside the pool, the jacuzzi, and the other facilities. If you prefer some covering when … Read more

Why is the Nude Spa More Popular than the Naturist Resort?

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

Your first time at the public sauna

In one of our first blog posts, It all started with a coupon, we told you about our first time in a nude sauna. Since this was also our first time going “publicly nude”, we’ve talked a lot in this post about ourselves and how we felt before going in. But what does such a sauna look like? Is it the same as a spa? Is it really without a swimsuit? Which kind of people … Read more

It all started with a coupon

We love new experiences. That’s probably the main reason why we like to travel so much. We love the adrenaline of doing something we’ve never done before, to be lost in translation in far away countries, to have a cold shower at minus 25 in the Andes mountains, to discover that we’ve been eating cow stomagh while we thought it was some kind of vegetable, to jump in rivers, swim in oceans and sleep in … Read more
