YNA Review of the 8th Annual Indoor Naturist Naked Volleyball Tournament

Ontario Indoor Naked Volleyball Tournament Review Friday, January 8, 2016, I left my sleepy little town and headed up to the Great Green North to attend the 8th Annual Winter Indoor Naturist Volleyball Tournament in London, Ontario at a place called Spikes Indoor Beach Volleyball. Spike looks like it used to be an old factory that someone purchased and then installed 4 regulation-size sand volleyball courts. One day per year, Spikes is reserved for naked volleyball. Besides the 4 sand courts, Spikes also has several picnic tables where people can sit and socialize, watch the games, or eat the food served by Spikes snack bar. A photo of Spikes Indoor Volleyball can be seen below. Source: YNA http://youngnaturistsamerica.com/naked-volleyball-indoor-naturist-tournament-london-ontario-review/

Charting the rise of nude fitness

An interesting examination of the clothes free fitness trend in Australia A GLOBAL TREND WITH HISTORIC ROOTS While exercising in the nude is enjoying an international revival, the Greeks were happily competing in track, field and martial arts without clothes 2500 years ago. Historians seem divided on the actual reasons for the ancient clothes-free competitions. Some claim that rather than being the great leveller, having to compete nude separated the upper-classes from the working classes as the pampered rich were able to train more frequently and therefore look more ripped and have an all-over tan. Whatever the ancient Greeks’ reasons for nuding up, a wave of global sports enthusiasts are again embracing the idea of naked events and exercise. There have been nude bike rides in London; nude cross-fit classes attracted so much attention (both positive and negative) at a Danish gym, they had to be taken off the timetable; nude yoga classes are all the rage in New York, while across the US “nakations” (nude vacations) are growing in popularity http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/fitness/charting-the-rise-of-nude-fitness/story-fnlsv23r-1227052992323#

Volley Brawl is on at Sunny Haven – guest blog

by Chris A day that changed our lives forever. It’s funny how the people that introduce you to nude recreation always hold a special place in your heart. That first day you wonder if you will be accepted and fit in. What will it feel like to be naked around a bunch of strangers in a strange place you’ve never visited before? The overwhelming feeling of freedom and peace can change your life. About 4 years ago I met my future wife Stephanie. We had only dated a few weeks and it was time to “come out of the closet” about my love for running around naked. I was nervous because we had been getting along so well and I really was falling in love already. I had prepared for the moment for days. I had AANR brochures and practiced what I would say. I finally got up the courage to tell her. She had questions and needed reassurance but was very open minded and understanding. After a conversation that probably only lasted a few …
