Why we use censorship on Naked Wanderings

Why we use censorship on Naked Wanderings

This is probably the number one question that we are being asked (with “How do you make money?” as a close second, but that’s for another blog post). Some propose their own opinions. Are we prudes? Are we not really naturists? Are we posers who are just looking for quick fame on the internet? Are we keeping the juicy stuff to put behind a paywall?   Truth to be said, as Naked Wanderings evolved over … 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

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

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

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

9 Great Naturist Content Creators that Deserve Your Support

9 Great Naturist Content Creators that Deserve Your Support

When we started with Naked Wanderings, we felt that there was a gap in the information about naturism that could be found online. There were static websites, often in need of an urgent makeover. You could subscribe to newsletters from clubs or federations. And there were not much more than a handful of naturist bloggers, whom we happily joined.   After more than 4 years of blogging on Naked Wanderings, we’ve seen many other naturist … Read more

Nude Online Meetups: The Next Step in Social Naturism?

Nude Online Meetups: The Next Step in Social Naturism?

The general opinion about naturism is that it’s something social. If you like to hang out in the nude while watching Netflix, you’re often considered “just a nude person”. Only when you frequent nude beaches or visit naturist clubs or resorts, spending time with other nudies, people start considering you a naturist.   Before we started Naked Wanderings, we didn’t have a clue about the existence of home naturism. Being nude at our home has … 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

12 Awesome Nude Instagram Accounts You Just Have to Follow

12 Awesome Nude Instagram Accounts You Just Have to Follow

Until today, we still haven’t completely recovered from the shock that our Instagram account @nakedwanderings suddenly got banned. We were speechless, helpless, sad and angry. Almost did we buy a ticket to Silicon Valley to go kick some butt. Or show some butt, we hadn’t really figured that one out yet. But then we realized that if we want to keep promoting naturism to the outside world, we need mainstream social media. We need to … Read more

Online Harassment of Female Nudists

Online Harassment of Female Nudists

Last month our friends at Get Naked Australia have put a sad but understandable message on their Facebook page. They were going to stop posting the pictures they receive from their following and which have made them world famous in the first place. And not for the obvious reason that Facebook would put them in their jail, but because of the comments these pictures are receiving. Meanwhile they’ve reconsidered this and restarted posting pictures, but … Read more
