My Bodybuilding Crossfit Life – Body Image, Nudism and Health (Part Two)

Originally posted on All Things Rabyd:
I must have struck some sort of cord with this mini series.  The first part has been trending for the entire week.  In that one I focuses on nudism’s relationship to body image and health focused on the body image part.  This time I would like to focus more on the physical health benefits of nudity.  It is something I have hinted at in other posts but never really delved into the subject. I understand this is a debatable point as many would argue about exposing yourself to elements as disease would be easier but that is a little bit of a misnomer.  Disease is spread either by contact or through the air and regardless of how much clothes you are wearing you get exposed to diseases like this.  The only way to truly protect yourself from this is to live inside a sterile glass bubble.  Fact is clothes and hair for that matter can hold on to disease bearing elements and keep us exposed to them as well so I am not sure exposure to…

To RT or not to RT -what we reveal online when clothes free

My name’s Björ C. and I tweet pretty much daily under the pseudonym @IbanSaram. Like most naturist tweeple, my feed is made up of pictures from my own life, pictures and quotes I find on the internet that I think will either be informative or entertaining, and RTs (or retweets) of things the people I follow myself have posted on their feeds. I like to keep things light-hearted, but every once and a while things get a tad more serious. This past weekend (21 and 22 December 2013) was one such occasion when things got more serious. It all started when I noticed during the previous weeks that some of the people I follow often post pictures of themselves, but they crop the pictures at the shoulders, i.e. the images may include their entire bodies from the toes up, but they end at the bases of their necks. Some of the images are rather good and the captions on some of them are indeed inspiring, but the more of those headless pictures I came across, …

These beaches provide naturists with the safety requirements to practice social nudity in a proper place and in accordance with the law. These beaches are not for the use of naturists, exclusively, so providing a good environment for those who want to start practicing naturism without nudity obligation.
