Meet Nick and Lins, the Belgian naturists travelling the world – naked (via metro.co.uk)

Backpacking. Sometimes it’s an adventure – sometimes it’s a lifestyle choice. The pressures of modern life can be wearing, and many of us have experienced the urge to quit the job, cancel the rental agreement and travel the world in a tent. But how many of us would do it nude? As crazy as it sounds, it’s something you might want to consider once you’ve read the story of Lins and Nick, a Belgian couple who are doing just that.

Getting Bendy In The Buff: Londonist Goes To Naked Yoga (via Londonist)

“I look up and see the gaping chasm of someone’s arsehole.”

“Imagine everyone in the room is naked!” That’s the advice you’re given when you’re nervous. And in cases of severe nerves, I’ve been advised to imagine everyone naked on the toilet. I’ve purposely disregarded this advice, as I can’t imagine anything I’d less like to picture. But today, this unappetising image has been made manifest in the flesh, as I’m opposite a naked man, who looks as if he’s doing a difficult poo.
I am at a Naked Yoga class in Clapham and we are currently in Chair Pose. As the name suggests, you squat like you’re about to sit back on a chair, and this man in my eye-line is struggling, his face distorted as he strains. I feel I’ve had an unsolicited insight into a private battle he’s having with his bowels, and I resolve to always eat enough fibre.

A recent Court victory, and the lessons learned (Sept. 2017) | Naturist Action Group | NAG (via Naturist Action Group)

A recent case involving nudity in a public place (2017). Here is a brief synopsis of the case. It is hoped that we can all learn something from it. It is published with the consent of the accused, though anonymised to avoid further unnecessary suffering. X has been a naturist for over 20 years, and has often driven his car naked during the last 17. He was travelling alone in his car on his way to collect his wife from work, and was driving naked, when he was stopped by traffic lights near a city centre. Y and his wife pulled up in a higher vehicle alongside and glanced across, and saw that X was naked. The Ys were ‘outraged’. X saw Y looking at him, and quickly pulled a pair of shorts across his lap. The lights then changed and X drove off. However, Y followed him and dialled 999 and asked the police to apprehend X, which they did by Y following for some miles and guiding the police to where he was driving using their mobile phone. X was arrested, taken to the police station and told

YNA Guide: How To Raise Naturist Kids and Introduce Naturism Part 1 (via Young Naturists America)

YNA series on how to raise naturist kids — an interview with naturist families and addressing a common question about naturism and dress codes!

When parents decide to raise naturist kids or introduce their children to naturism, there are some common questions and concerns that tend to arise.

Since we occasionally get emails from parents looking for answers and guidance, we decided the best way to address this is to ask naturist parents from our community! This will be a 3-part series addressing different questions. This article, part one, introduces the families I interviewed and also addresses the question of how to teach young kids about naturism and dress code rules.

Rangitata man greeted curtain makers naked at front door (via Stuff)

Man made appointments for quotes on curtains then greeted women naked at his home.

A South Canterbury man welcomed curtain and blind hangers, who had been asked to help him redecorate his house, by standing naked at the doors of the property, the Timaru District Court has heard.

Robert Johannes Adrianna De Weert, 58, of Rangitata, was convicted of seven charges of doing an indecent act with intent to insult and sentenced to five months’ community detention, nine months’ supervision, and ordered to complete 120 hours of community work.

Judge Tom Gilbert said De Weert had an appointment for a woman to come to his house on February 25, to measure up for blinds in two of his bedrooms and provide a quote for them.

Rise of the nudist: Our next generation (via Chinchilla News)

A GROUP of young Aussies are trying to show that naturism isn’t just for old folks.

THINK of nudists and you might conjure an image of jiggly, leathery old folks playing volleyball.

But Sydneysider Matt O has made it his mission to change that. He and a few friends founded the Young Nudists of Australia in 2016, with the aim of introducing 18-40 year olds to benefits of getting together, and getting nude.

The group quickly amassed a membership of over 350 people interested in exploring the nudist lifestyle.

I Practiced Yoga Naked Every Day For A Week And It Taught Me To Be Kind To My Body (via Elite Daily)

Namaste nude.

Every yogi has a reason for why they started practicing, and why they continue. My yoga journey began promptly after a panic attack landed me in my doctor’s office with EKG chords spread out on my chest like a dartboard. It’s been a long time since I’ve endured a panic attack as intense as that one, but I continue my yoga practice as a way of sustaining a healthy relationship with my physical body, as well as the mixed emotions of love and resentment I sometimes feel toward it. To celebrate National Yoga Month and take my practice one giant step further, I set out to learn how to do yoga naked without passing judgment on my outer shell. I committed to five days on the mat, clad only in my birthday suit, and completed my experiment with a newfound sense of gratitude.
