“Nakedness doesn’t democratise social experience, as the naturists seem to suggest….Instead, it offers something better: a shared preoccupation.”
My wife and I had the good fortune of being invited guests (along with several other bloggers) on a ZOOM session with the Irish Naturist Association a few days ago, which makes this piece from an Irish newspaper particularly interesting.
Unlike most news pieces about the ebb and flow of naturism, this piece focuses on the author’s personal journey in coping with life in general, and the role the local nude beach played in that journey. An intriguingly different approach, and quite different that the typical news coverage of social nudity.
