Don’t get me wrong. This is not a post about body painting. I’m going to delve a little into the side of naturism of other ethnic groups. People of colour. Black people. Hispanic people. And why? Because I have found that around 95% of the naturist contacts I have on the internet are white. Caucasian.…

Get buff in the buff this new year.
On Jan. 5 at 6 p.m., the fitness studio will have its first nude personal training session. The studio initially plans to host three sessions a week: one mixed, one for men, and one for women.
Located in SoHo (42 Wooster St, New York, N.Y., 10012), the class will be a “total body workout that uses your body weight as resistance to work the glute, butt, legs and core — making you look and feel good naked,” the company said in a press release. New year, nude you, they say.
Hanson studio founder Harry Hanson, fitness guru, said in the release, “Our approach makes sure our members get and stay in the absolute best shape, and our new naked personal fitness sessions are no exception. This new development brings with it a range of fitness and health benefits and allows our members to have a little cheeky fun in the process!”
While naked yoga has become an increasingly trendy and popular exercise, few places do full-body workouts in the nude. NKD Training in the UK has naked gym training, but it’s for men only.
Hanson Fitness says that working out nude keeps you cooler, releases endorphins, increases body awareness and gives you unrestricted movement. Plus: less laundry!
If guests are uncomfortable training in the complete nude, nude-colored underwear is permitted. Contact the studio to book a spot, find out about private sessions and inquire about costs.
If naked yoga is more your speed, head to Bold and Naked Yoga Studio in Midtown West, which has naked and clothed yoga classes, private sessions and other training programs.
I wrote this essay as part of a first year writing course I took this fall with Dr. Andrew Joseph Pegoda. To put this into context, I am a senior (5th year) undergraduate mathematics major taking this particular English core requirement for the third time. The original assignment was to define a mores or ritual in American culture. In freaking out I decided to write in a style that I was more familiar with. With that in mind, here is the result.
Who Cares About Your Genitals?
In 2003, Stephen Peter Gough began hiking naked through the United Kingdom “earning the nickname ‘the naked rambler’.” His more than thirty subsequent arrests resulted in “almost seven years in prison” (Gough 6 and 160). Given the potential consequences of public nudity, we can see how strongly western culture values the ritual of clothing oneself. Thus, we define socially mandated…

One of the best ways to increase nude time and our nudist friends is of course to let acquaintances know that you are a naturist. For many reasons, it’s not always possible to shout out loud that we are naturist and we want to spend more time naked. We have seen in previous ideas how to leave traces of our nudism, like leaving our naturist publications openly on our coffee table.
Another way is to hang a clothing optional sign next to your door, to your swimming pool if you have one or in your lounge. You will find those signs available on Internet. Just go to Amazon, look for “Clothing Optional Sign” and you have tons of options to chose from, including metal and wooden panels, some being really nice.
I particularly like the Notice sign (the one above), indicating that nudists may be see beyond this point…

Its a idea. Let’s think about it for a moment. And yes, I am being serious here. Maybe we should start protesting. It would give us great visibility and help spread the word about naturism/nudism. But maybe protest is too strong, too angry. Maybe the idea of a Naturist March would be a good idea. Yeah that’s the ticket.
Since the gays, the non-binary gendered. and the Social Justice Communists have been holding rallies, protests, and out right riots as of late i started thinking, “Why don’t we stage a peaceful march in support of the Naturist Community?” We are definitely a minority, and maybe we could claim some kind of victim status (although personally i do not want to do that). We could start a peaceful march during one of the Naked Bike Rides and spread from there. Now i know what the next question is: “What do we protest/march for?”
- More Nude Spaces. I suggest when we march we claim that we are asking for more nude beaches, trails and parks where we can go nude. Since we are paying our tax dollars to maintain these areas, we as naturists should be allowed to enjoy them in the nude as well.
- Change the Indecency Laws. Right now a number of laws say you can be arrested for being seen nude via the window inside your house or being seen in the nude on your own property. These laws need to be changed.
- Speaking Out. We need to speak out and talk about being nude and the health benefits of it. The march/protest would be the perfect chance to do so.
- Body Positive Outlook/Movement. This one is totally optional. While it will probably garner support from the SJWs and feminists, I am not sure I want their help since they are a bunch of communists and special snowflakes. They’ll make us look more like loons then sane people.
Well that’s all i can think of for right now. But i do wonder would any of us be willing to actually protest in the nude?
