Back to Costa

img_0274

I’m very happy to say that Molly and i will finally be returning to the wonderful Costa Natura resort for the first time in thirteen months. It’ll be so great to drive through those gates, unload the car, find our apartment then get naked!!

Ten whole days away from this dreary weather will certainly lift our spirits and wash away those post winter blues. There will be a lot of lounging around as Costa isn’t really geared up for fast paced living! But that is kind of the point of this kind of holiday. Pool, beach, sun loungers, jacuzzi, sauna, good food and cheap fizz. And of course our Kindles will be preloaded with plenty of interesting reading material.

Last but by no means least the company of my beautiful girlfriend. Molly never looks more radiant than when she’s bathed in sunshine enjoying the total body freedom that we naturists are so lucky to enjoy without the inhibitions of our textile friends!

Hopefully see y’all there!

#nakedselfiefriday

A few weeks ago myself and some friends on Twitter decided to start a little campaign to promote body positivism and naturism generally by posting a naked selfie of ourselves at some point on a Friday. Ok so we aren’t the first people to try this idea out but it doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a go. Twitter is a great platform for naturist activity and discussion.

We’ve met a lot of nice people and learned about many interesting and relevant subjects and issues facing naturist people today. If you’ve never been naked online before then this could be the way to dip your toe. Just remember that tweets are open to the public so anyone can see them. The chances of somebody you know seeing anything you have posted is pretty slim if they aren’t actually following you or searching out naturist tweets in general.

So join in. If you’re not already on Twitter come and have a look. Or if you already have a standard account then set yourself up with an alternate naturist one. We would love to see more women taking part too, there always seems to be more men braving #nakedselfiefriday than ladies. That is obviously  a problem with online naturism generally. but there are some interesting female twitter accounts helping to promote naturism.

Below is the tweet that started it all!

More of the bougainvillia

Thought i might as well add the other photos of that beautiful bougainvillia with the even more beautiful Molly setting the scene. Oh and one shot of myself looking not so glamorous!

Keep things clean

29036658933_6d8bd1c9ce_o

We always try and keep our naturist internet experience clean. This is about mind and body freedom. If one wants porn there’s enough of it out there which is completely fine but it has nothing to do with naturism and recreational nudity.

Free your body, free your mind!

Blue skies

I’m glad Christmas is finally over. Even though we enjoyed the festive period it’s nice to get into a new year and look forward to what might be ahead over the next twelve months. Predictably we are really looking forward to some much better weather making an appearance here in Cornwall.

But we are also dreaming of the chance to take ourselves away on holiday again to get some proper naked sun worshipping done quite probably in Spain although Portugal might be a good possibility. There are certainly naturist holiday opportunities there that need investigation. I’m sure there is plenty of information on the net and a quick check through back issues of H&E magazine has given me a few hints so i think some further reading is required. If and when i find anything really interesting i shall report back here.

Blue skies soon please.

Bougainvillia

img_0230

One of the most beautiful sights in Spain are those huge colourful walls of Bougainvillia. So vibrant when it is in flower. A shame it doesn’t do so well in the UK although it does cover nearly a whole wall in our conservatory and it’s still happily flowering away now in late December. Of course there is another beautiful flower in this photo and she is most certainly still very much in bloom!

Why Nude Photos are Important to Naturism

Asian American Naturist

IMG_1536 This is an example of who we are. There is no shame, lust, or degradation.

Imagine if you will that this blog wasn’t about naturism, but about camping and backpacking.  In my theoretical camping blog I’d write about my travels, offer advice, discuss issues within the camping/backpacking community, and show you pictures of my trips.   No one would get upset about pictures of Yosemite or the Grand Canyon.  But in reality my blog isn’t about camping, but nude recreation and the naturist lifestyle.

Since its early days, naturism has been portraying the nude human body in photography.  In fact, it was nudist magazines that set the legal precedent for nude images to be published.  Up until 1958, it was illegal for nudist magazines to be mailed by the U.S. Postal Service. In SUNSHINE BOOK COMPANY v. SUMMERFIELD, The U.S. District Court of Columbia ruled that nudist magazines could…

By the pool

img_0218

These photos are taken by the beautiful pool at Costa Natura in Spain. This was just after one of our early morning swims when it is rare to see anybody else using the pool so also a good opportunity to take a couple of shots without upsetting any of our fellow residents. A naked swim before breakfast is one of lives true pleasures. The jacuzzi is usually pretty empty at that time of day so it seems rude not to spend twenty minutes or so in there too.

It really is a pleasant well maintained pool area at Costa. It’s obviously good to get there early to claim a good sun bed spot but out of season it isn’t too tricky finding a nice place to while away the day with an engaging read and a cool drink. The pool does become an essential tool for keeping cool and relaxed though.
