ONLY FIVE DAYS TO GO!

Hey all! As the United States prepares to celebrate “Freedom”, let us all over the world celebrate “f-READ-om” – the freedom to read what we want, when we want, and do it naked if we want (yes, we want)! JOIN US THE 5TH OF JULY – TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES – AND READ A BOOK! SHARE OUR FACEBOOK EVENT WITH YOUR F-READ-OM FIGHTER FRIENDS! Nude Readingby Vargas For centuries, being able to read was a mark of privilege and progress.  Those who could read were held in high regard.  Being able to devour books and literature at your leisure was set aside for the upper classes.  Sometimes, even owning books was dangerous and could get you killed. As time marched on, literacy became more and more prevalent until now we take the that very skill for granted.  As a culture, we no longer savor reading.  We no longer touch it with our whole bodies.  At best, we may read in passing, at as high a speed as we use…

World Naked Bike Ride LA 2015 Recap

My wife and I loaded up our bikes and headed to downtown LA for the 2015 WNBR on Saturday. This was her first time participating and it was my second. There was a new meeting spot which was near Chinatown and it was much better than last year. Kudos to the organizers for getting us a dry spot to get ready in. Once again there were way more men that women. I am not sure what the ratio is at other rides in large cities around the world but here in LA the ratio is probably 20-1 leaning towards men. This is very disappointing but now that I have gone with my wife to the ride I can say that without a doubt she will not ride the event again. Why? The creep factor is high. There are too many fully clothed men “participating” in the ride with cameras. Their sole goal it to capture nude people. One annoying photographer asked my wife 4 times if he could take her…

5 ways #nudism will enhance your social life

Originally posted on Nu et heureux – Naked and Happy:
You may or may not be a nudist, but the title of this post has trigger some interest. What? you ask yourself. How is getting naked can enhance my naked life. Let me ask you a couple of questions: have not you felt sometimes the need to find new friends and people to exchange ideas with? Do you sometimes want to try new activities but do not know how? Are you feeling people may not be completely sincere with you? Well, let me introduce you to why getting naked with other nudists will enhance your social life, in a naturist club, during a naked hike or at home if you want to throw a naked party: Meeting like-minded individuals. Nudists all love to get naked. Some will get naked only in a naturist setting, like a clothing optional resort or beach, others will get naked in nature, others will be naked at home, but all nudists share that same love of being naked with others.…

Do You All Have Your Bottoms On, Ladies?

…asked the cop on a motorcycle after he noisily putt-putted up to us on the lawn behind the Columbus Circle fountain. Yes, we said. It was true. We all had our bottoms on. Though not one of us was wearing a top. “All right, then,” he replied and putt-putted off again. This on the same day that marriage equality prevailed in the Supreme Court. Can you imagine how wide our smiles were? Oh, and a random guy came over and asked, “Are you that pulp fiction appreciation society…?” And was totally cool and nice about it. Really couldn’t have been a lovelier Friday afternoon in the park, with old friends and new. (We welcomed one from Brazil! And we do welcome her, gladly. But how sad and wrong it is that a Brazilian woman should have to come to New York if she wants to lie bare-breasted in the sun. In Brazil, she could get fined or arrested for it.) Authors on hand?

With the approach of our second time hosting the World Naked Bike Ride approaching, we’re keeping an eye on the weather. A few days ago it was announcing 80% chance of rain however, recent checks of the weather shows that it’s only a 40% chance of light showers. We believe we’ll just go ahead and do the ride since it will be 30°c with the humidity and a little rain isn’t going to bother us when its 30°c outside. May we remind you that Daniel and I are going to be the pace leaders in front and you’re all to remain behind us (Do not pass us) and follow the traffic rules and police escort. Last year, we had a little issue. Police wants us to try to stick together and NOT fall behind like last years ride (mainly the night ride when people were distracted with the un-cycles doing tricks. This is fine to do when we’re stopped in traffic but PAY ATTENTION when we start moving again. There is…

Writer ventures into naturist community and produces a book

One man’s year as a nudist Despite gradually becoming more relaxed about being naked in public, Haskell Smith always had last-minute nerves about removing his clothes when he re-entered a nudist environment. “These fears are really all inside your own head. The nudists really don’t care. The people you usually see naked are almost all actors and models on TV and in advertising so we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that’s what a naked person should look like. “Naked people really look like everyone else so I think the idea of accepting your body and other people’s bodies is really healthy. Our society needs all kinds of tolerance and this is a good place to start,” he says. read the full article on BBC magazine
