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
OK… Sorry Scottish football (soccer) fans. I had to look up Jim Duffy. Turns out he’s a big deal in the football circuit, or at least he was at one time. In any event, I thought this piece was really well written. He makes a really compelling case for holistic naturism, at least until the […]Read More Naturist resorts aren’t what I thought they were.
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?
First posted this on my personal blog, The Meandering Naturist, back in 2016. The article bounces someplace between sarcastic and snarky, but the author raises some thoughtful points, along with a bit of insight from Phillip Carr-Gomm. Hope you think it’s a good read. Some people dismiss streakers, naked protesters and even nudists and life […]Read More Naturism & Exhibitionism: Enemies or First Cousins?
A New York Times reporter takes the plunge for a full immersion experience while interviewing the locals at a German naturist park. Particularly interesting are the reflections from long-time naturists who remember the meaning of social nudity before the wall came down in 1989 – and how the western influence has turned a non-event (getting […]Read More A Reporter’s Dilemma: Should I Take My Clothes Off?
So as best I can tell, dw.com is an on-line magazine dedicated to helping ex-pats, especially Brits, understand life and culture in Germany. In this installment, they take on the cultural norms surrounding social nudity in Deutschland, along with a brief history thereof. An embedded slideshow walks you through the last one-hundred years of naked […]Read More Why Germany’s nudist culture remains refreshing
To find out what young people get out of being naked. I’m a little reluctant to post this article from VICE (an online magazine) as the author points out one of the awkward truths about naturism – that’s attendees at such events are frequently predominantly male. As one of the objectives of this blog is […]Read More I Went to a Nudist Festival for Millennials
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
Have gotten away from this blog in recent months, intended to publish thoughtfully written commentary on naturism, mainly not authored by me. (Though I do throw in one of my pieces every now and again.) This is a great piece about the practicality of naturist hiking that is actually published in three parts. I’ve only […]Read More Liberation on the Trail — The Free Range Naturist
While maybe leaning to a bit to the esoteric extreme, it is refreshing to see this recent commentary from the New York Times giving a somewhat muted endorsement for naturism. What is most pleasing, actually, is the author made it through the entire piece avoiding all the typical puns and stereotypish gags about social nudity, […]Read More Letter of Recommendation: Naturism
