As God created us

Danish Christians living clothes free make the case for Christianity and Clothes free living As God created us Most people have prejudices that Christians are more modest and conservative with respect to the body than naturists generally. So it surprises people that one can be naturist and Christian. Most people think that Christians have a different attitude to sexuality, but it is rooted in the prejudice that naturists have a wild intercourse with sex, he explains. He has met many people around the naturist who were also Christians, and think really that among Christians is probably a greater proportion nudists than among non-Christians. It is remarkable how many Christian naturists I run into in. I could imagine that there are more Christian naturists because Christians increasingly think about their choices in life. In Denmark, one different from the vast majority of people when one is believing Christian. Therefore, we used to not be similar to most. It also means that you might be less bound by what the others are doing, and so it may …

wandering at Ostia Antica, inspired by Ancient Greek statues

Happy Nude Year! Here is a treat for you, and hopefully some inspiration for the New Year! It would probably be more appropriate to post something winter-themed, like my Russian banya with an ice hole experience, but hey, it’s summer in Southern Hemisphere, and then there are parts of the world where it’s summer all the time, so here is something neutral, another collection of autumn photos. This one has been waiting to be published for a few years now, but it’s well worth a wait. Special thanks to Joe for photography. Ancient Greece, with its deep traditions of nudity in sports and other activities, has been an obvious inspiration for this website (look at out Gymnasion section), just like it was many ways inspirational to Romans. So, when we visited Ostia Antica, a large archeological site, which was the location of the harbour city of ancient Rome, we were tempted to do some nude photography with such a beautiful background and mild sunlight of late October. I rarely pose in…

The photographer censored on Facebook

Mother/photographer banned from Facebook share her story in interview The photographer censored on Facebook: At first I was shocked when people send me angry messages ………. I do not. If you see the true manic, bad people, not from the pictures that I post or Jock Sturges, where everyone is open-minded, and are naked. For me to know that people are happy to see someone like me and write me I’m empowering … Look, for me there is a special move. I live well. If you see me at my house, I would not say I’m a nudist, but I prefer to be naked. To me there is nothing amazing or unusual about that read more -Spanish Original post is in Spanish quote translated using Google translate Related articles Study: Facebook Saves And Analyzes Your Unpublished Posts And Comments (ivebeenmugged.typepad.com) Facebook Knows When We Self-Censor and What Makes Us Do It (hawaiireporter.com) Facebook is studying your unpublished updates (smartbrief.com)

Doctor Who gives us a possible future where clothes are unnecessary!

Originally posted on Get Naked, Get Awesome:
I hope you all had a good Christmas and, if being nude for the holidays was important to you, I hope you had the chance to be. My girlfriend and I have previously had a holiday tradition of “Naked Christmas” – it would take place before actual Christmas, we’d exchange gifts, eat Christmas food, all without clothes.  This was because due to family commitments we would never be together on Christmas day, so we’d pick a day a few days before to do things our own way, just the two of us, and clothes free. However this year there was no Naked Christmas, as we had arranged to be together, with family, on Christmas day.  So this year we got our Christmas day together, albeit clothed and in the company of her family. One tradition we were able to keep up this year was watching the Christmas day episode of Doctor Who on BBC One.  This year we were able to share a knowing grin at some of…

Opening Up More and More

opening up Opening Up More and More I am changing as I open up more and more, as I tell the story of who I am through poetry and prose. I am changing as I open up in my relationship with others. I think I am becoming more authentic in the process. Becoming more authentic doesn’t mean that I become more handsome or more likable to others. What it does mean is that I can live easier with myself, more gently with myself. And this is new territory for me. And, I think it is unfamiliar territory for almost all of us. read more

Finding the courage to enjoy social nudity

Originally posted on Naturist Philosopher:
Our society in the U. S., as in most other counties, is generally quite hostile to open nudity. It’s considered OK for a person to be naked in a few limited circumstances, and even to enjoy that nakedness in some fewer cases. But there’s a strong taboo against going naked openly and by choice with all but a certain very few people. In various ways this taboo is even stronger now than in recent decades – unless one is some sort of a celebrity or meets quite narrow aesthetic standards of bodily appearance. As a result, it takes a fair amount of courage for most people to try social nudity – and to admit that they enjoy it, if they are successful in trying it. It takes courage to explain to skeptics of social nudity, let alone people who are actively hostile towards it, what is so good about it. But almost inevitably one has to undertake such explanation to the skeptics and hostiles in order to justify a choice…

2013 – the year I lost control of my image!

Originally posted on walking with freedom:
Celebrities understandably fear the photographer who seeks to capture them going about their ordinary lives. Whether that photographer is paparazzi, or an amateur who stumbles across them, the fear is that they lose control of their image. The carefully posed and manicured photo commissioned by Hello! is a world away from the ordinariness that could be captured by a photo in the streets. Before participating in the World Naked Bike Ride in Brighton this year I had always felt in control of my nude image. That is despite the proliferation of nakedness of my good self on the internet since the mid 90s. This feeling of control was because I took the photos – and I decided where they would go and who was likely to see them. For the many embarrassing or less than flattering images – there existed the delete key to deal with those. This year’s decision to participate in the World Naked Bike Ride meant that I was going to lose all control. And I…
