This excellent blog post hit home in a big way. The authors make an excellent point that hiding your face when posting about normalising naturism is actually antithetical to the cause of…normalising naturism. Personally, I use a pseudonym while blogging, and exercise caution regarding facial recognition, as an important tenet of my job involves working […]Read More Why are we Hiding?
Fridays have become “Discerning Nudist Day,” where I post thoughtful pieces by other authors related to social nudity. This piece by a brilliant young writer speaks to the commodification of bodies and how that plays into the psychology of why just about anyone with even a hint of self-awareness may not be eager to participate […]Read More Bodies for Sale
Been a while since I’ve posted here, but as it turns out, this post is about me! Met an online friend in California and we took to the trails for an au naturel hike! It was great, and Fred’s a excellent writer. Here’s his account of our day in the sun. As much as we […]Read More Big Moronga Canyon Trail Freehike
Children have a natural curiosity about nudity. Being naked around your children—whether occasionally or regularly—can teach them what a “normal” adult body looks like.

So… the Discerning Nudist is essentially a blog about other peoples blogs, along with other news clippings about social nudity, so why not feature a blog post about bloggers, along with a lively debate between bloggers on blogging about nudism? Be sure to read the comment thread at the end. The “debate” between/about several well […]Read More RE: What Happened to the Nudist Bloggers?
I’ve been mired in a discussion around this topic on the subreddit:nudism, which has become something of an endless loop, as a handful of us regulars toss around speculative theories while watching the median age at most nudist venues grow increasingly skewed by, shall we say, the more seasoned members of the human race.

Meet Kate. A British 30-something girl who has fallen in love the most remote places in New Zealand, and the joys of being able to get naked there! Seems she stumbled into naturism quite by accident, finding the whole experience so liberating, that she’s decided to document her travels and write a travel book. SPOILER […]Read More Free range humans: Naked Kate
I think the Thoughtful Naturist is one of the most intelligent voices on naturism on the web right now, particularly in this piece where he reconciles his own feelings about embracing his proclivity for naturism. In doing so, he finds that most people are more accepting of social nudity than one might thing… at least […]Read More Should Naturists Be More Assertive?
Eager to get this blog up and running again, which was intended to highlight some of my opinion pieces, well written blogs from other authors who I think are especially insightful, and pieces from mainstream media that help explain naturism to the unsuspecting public. I thought this piece from my twenty-something friend Addie was an […]Read More The Joys of Sharing Naturism with Others — The Meandering Naturist
