“Hard” issues

Erections do happen in nudist settings, but we nudists have found ways to hide them efficiently - from wearing a towel, lying on our belly, jumping into the pool or the sea, taking a cold shower, going to the loo, or simply withdrawing from a social setting under any excuse.

Bedsheets

I have a feeling that if there's any snow this winter, it will be wet and the ground won't freeze over as it's supposed to and there will be mud everywhere. I sincerely hope this winter proves me wrong. I wanna make a snow angel naked, without getting all muddy.

What to expect when you take off your clothes in public for the first time?

If this is your first time naked outside the house (or at all, in which case kudos to you), the quality of air, the breeze, and the feeling of the sun against your skin (particularly in regions we're told should always be covered) may surprise you a bit. Don't let these sensations throw you off. Enjoy them; embrace them; they're one of the things why nudism is so fabulous!

The “Shamedress”

If I ever see someone using this silly thing I don't think I'll be able to stop laughing - first at the silly way this whole process looks, then at the sheer foolishness of the person using it.

In support of Stephen Gough

[W]e consider ourselves a democratic and free society. However, as Stephen has noticed but cannot articulate why, this doesn't go very far. This high opinion of ourselves is baseless because some of us - our Human Rights Court judges (no less) included - are not ready to accept this in all possible instances of our exercise of that democracy and that freedom.

The pros and cons of running naked

Back when I was still a beginning nudist, I often thought of things I can and can't do in the nude. One of the things I put in the "can't" category was running. I always thought that, well, things would start flapping around uncontrollably, if you know what I mean.

Skinny dipping

I'm still, in fact, surprised that there is a special term for [skinny dipping] at all. In fact, I would sooner have swimming in swimsuits labeled as "textile dipping" if for no other reason then to stress the fact that you're really just wetting your trunks and not enjoying a swim.

How to stop being ashamed of your naked body, Part 3

The most difficult step for some might be that first time of simply being naked for seemingly no reason. I can relate to the feeling of being watched, laughed at, sneered at, from every tiniest crack in the window blinds, through the keyhole of the locked door, from the closed closet - and if you're doing it in a pitch black room, lying on your bed (covered or not) naked, from the side, or under your bed, or looming above you a figure staring critically at the shape of your body beneath the sheets just waiting to get you should a patch of skin show; and even though it's completely dark you think that they can see you.

How to stop being ashamed of your naked body, Part 2

In my previous post I mentioned something called the shame spectrum. This may be a misnomer, though, since I find it possible to visualise each person (in the context of social and non-social nudity) as a line on a two-dimensional plane, which shows how much they are nude in situations of varying social engagement.
