I, like many other women, went through a transformation when I was in a nudist environment. Surrounded by people of all shapes and sizes, I went topless in Ibiza. In that moment, I didn’t suddenly love my body — but, I accepted it. I learned to say “fuck you” to hating it. I started to enjoy life, free from the constant anxiety that my body wasn’t “good enough” to do so.
This is sort of a slow starter, so I hope you will “bare with me” until I get to the twist! I was chatting with my millennial friend Addie the other day about outing oneself as a naturist through social media, noting that we both work in education related fields that frequently involves working with […]
Okay…in the spirit of my last post i will start the Nude Seniors picture post idea that i had some time ago.
You know the hardest thing about getting old is realizing that you are getting old. Just recently one of my young co-workers offered to lift a heavy box because he was worried that i might hurt my back “at my age” he stated. Yeah that kinda stung, but I’m literally old enough to be his father since i am 39 and he is 19. So yeah I guess to a 19 yr old, I am getting old.
But just because we get old, doesn’t mean we can’t be nude and that we have to stop living. Just my 10 cents for this post.
So after all these years this revelation finally hit me. All of you have been to the standard beach and as you look around you see the usual young girls in their skimpy two piece bikinis correct. And yet when you look at the old and fat you see this:
I never thought about it, i never even realized that yes we still discriminate against the old and the fat on the beach. You see the old and fat have been told, weather openly, through the media, and through going to the beach as well that they don’t own their own bodies the moment they hit the beach. They need to cover up because no one wants to see their fat and/or wrinkled bodies.
Now this is something that I could say that we as Naturist can point out and use it to encourage people to frequent nudist and topless beaches. But there is a problem. The problem is that young people still react harshly to seeing the old and overweight in the nude or topless, and many will stop coming to nude beaches and nude resorts if they feel they have to look at old bodies all day. Of course this is just egotism and youthful arrogance speaking, but it is a problem when we want to attract more young people to the Naturist lifestyle.
Suffice to say i don’t have any grand solutions to this. But i will say that by now you’d think that the fat and elderly women would have broken this mold of shame about their bodies and have strode onto the beach in a two piece bikini without any shame and ignoring the stink eye given to them by young people.
For the past five years, the idea of a sports competition between the various naturist groups in Southern California has been steadily on the rise. This year, however, the day-long multi-club competition on August 8 at Olive Dell Ranch really captured the imagination of the region.
An estimated 75 people participated in the 10 events, representing several different clubs, and everyone – including the onlookers- seemed to have a good time as the “athletes” fought hard in games designed to test strength, endurance, and intelligence.
From the crowd reactions, the favorite games were the paper cup relay, the noodle race around the pool, Frisbee toss for accuracy, and the balloon toss.
I found this article and the picture to be hilarious! I mean c’mon folks its not like she’s doing the same thing Kathy Gifford did or something in that vein. Plus its a advertisement for a gym. But i thought it was funny. I’d want to go to that gym. How come we don’t have nudist gyms popping up around the country?
You know i just had a idea. Yes…yes naturist/nudist gyms popping all around the nation! We can have naturist gyms, and there you will exercise in the nude as a basic rule! Then the 20-something hipsters will join the gym thinking its the new hip thing to do! And then we’ll traumatize them when they get to see all those old, wrinkled bodies!!
MUWAHAHAHAHAHA!! Imagine their shocked faces when they have to look 30 years into the future and see what hard work, children, and gravity does to the body! Oh yes we shall give their spoiled little butts nightmares for years to come! Oh and we’ll get healthy too. Can’t forget getting healthy.
So help me come up with a name for this nude gym franchise. I’m thinking “Fit to Naked” or maybe “Natureal Fit”.
