Naturism and Images – It’s All About the Intention – Part 1

This article states exactly what i have said in my own blog many times.

Sky Clad Therapist - The Naked Psyche

Genital free “safe” image. Obviously nude but not threatening.

There is a continual controversy on Twitter and on other social media sites that purport to deal with naturism, that argue about images that are tagged as naturist where and when the genitals are seen. I know I waver back and forth between allowing full frontal images of myself and “safe” photos where body positioning or judicious cropping takes care of the possibility of offending. But when I do this, I become the problem. At that moment, I stop being authentic and hope that somehow I can be in the collective, well at least a small corner of the collective.

See me? I have a Penis.

Many of the images are blatantly not about naturism, but rather about individuals desperately posting images of themselves with the focus fully on their genitals – “see me, I have a penis … am I…

Nude Is Not Lewd

ReNude Pride

Often, we see many professional athletes, who are paid enormous and outrageous amounts of money get physical with one another to reward a job-well-done. In both the National Basketball Association (NBA) and in the National Football Association (NFL), countless team-mates give each other a pat or a slap on their buttocks in a congratulatory gesture of goodwill and friendship. Even coaches do the same as a show of support to their players and a way of offering encouragement. No one complains of bodily harm, excessive violence, sexual harassment or indecency.

The art of nude hiking

Nu et heureux - Naked and Happy

FYN_03

Take a famous brand of sports gear, Columbia, take a great outdoor activity, hiking, mix this with nudism, and you get an article on the art of nude hiking on the Columbia’s blog. It’s just awesome! Here are their 9 tips for hiking nude:

  1. Protect your feet. Walking barefoot on rocky track is not really neither comfortable nore secured. Good hiking shoes are required. However, if you want the ultimate experience in nude hiking, Vibram Five Fingers will become your best friends. I talked about using them for running, and some models are just great for hiking!
  2. Nudist Welcome. Pick a spot where you can extend your nude hiking experience, by going to a nudist resort or B&B. You may find other nudists to go and walk with you. Nude hiking is much funnier with a group of like-minded people.
  3. Avoid the public. If simple…

Naked on the Nile

Nude model thrown in jail like a Dog

A NUDE model claims she was flung in jail after she was caught posing for a secret photoshoot inside one of Egypt’s ancient temples.

Marisa Papen, who describes herself as a “free-spirited and wild hearted expressionist”, traveled with photographer Jesse Walker to Egypt for a spectacular photoshoot inside and outside some of the country’s most famous landmarks.

In a blog post reported by various media outlets over the weekend she claimed she was put in jail an hauled before a court as a result of her nude al fresco outing.

However the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities has disputed how accurate the images are suggesting they may have been faked or taken some time ago, reports Gulf News.

The Belgian model said: “The last two years I have walked wild and free in at least 50 countries. Rarely do I end up in precarious situations. Until April this year, in Egypt.”

Marisa, from the Flanders region of Belgium, met up in Cairo with photographer Walker who flew in from Australia to do the shoot.

And even though the duo said they were aware of the cultural, political and religious differences between Egypt and the West, the adventure ended differently than they both expected.During a first photoshoot near the famous pyramids of Giza, the two got into trouble.

They reportedly bribed a security guard to start the photoshoot when suddenly two young men showed up.

Papen said: “I was suddenly completely awake, like a cold shower at 5am in the morning.

Okay lets be honest here.  While i admire her work and her passion, she obviously broke the law and did something very stupid.  Like going into a Muslim country and doing a nude photoshoot!

Naked Social Experiment in Italy

Naked Woman parades through streets of Italy

According to the Daily Star Online, the brazen lady was taking part in a social experiment and was fined £3,000 for public indecency.

The Star also reports that one of the men put his arm around the woman who brushed off his creepy advances.

The provocative female reportedly addressed the group of men saying: “It’s a social experiment, to show that we’re all good people.

“You are good, aren’t you, boys?”

Okay…not exactly the way to promote Naturism.  More like a good way to promote being arrested.  Meanwhile in other news a couple in the same area started having full on sex in the public view and no one gave a damn.  Yeah I ain’t moving to Italy any time soon.

I introduced my bff Mandy to naturism

Bare Thoughts

It’s been a while, but Santana is back with a new story. We hope you enjoy!

Curiosity will always win from fear.

When Harmen and I were still in the beginning of our relationship I told my friends and family about him being a naturist. After a while I also became a naturist and we started with the blogs later that year. With that being said, my friend Mandy started asking questions about it. I always answered them with full honesty and I could really sense her curiosity. She even joked about joining me to our favorite naturist resort Flevonatuur. Untill yesterday…

She was spending the night at our place because we didn’t see each other in a while. Harmen also had a chance to sleep at home so we had a great night with lots of talks and laughs with the three of us. At one moment we were…
