NZ GardeningGardeners have kicked off the long weekend by not only stripping away winter debris from their backyards but also their clothes.

Saturday marked New Zealand's first Nude Gardening Day and Mary Spackman and Terry Doe need no encouragement to tidy their grounds completely starkers, so they naturally got behind the movement.

"It's about being able to take your clothes off and enjoy freedom when you're gardening," said Spackman, who has lived a nude lifestyle for the past six years.

Why aren’t there more women in nudism? And what can we do about it?

Consider the following scene which might take place in a nudist setting:

A young, beautiful, completely nude woman approaches a pool.
She gracefully performs a swan dive into the crystal clear water, penetrating the surface with barely a splash.
Her lithe body moves elegantly beneath the surface. Water flows freely around the curves of her bare skin as she swims to the other end.
She reemerges on the shallow side, where she stands and wades the rest of the way to the pool's edge.
Goosebumps cover her body. Droplets of water fall from the tips of her hard nipples. Warm sunlight makes her wet bare skin glisten.
She smiles and looks up at a young man, himself also completely nude, standing near the edge. “The water is beautiful,” she says to him. “Join me?”

israel nude movie

Eighty participants from all walks of life attended the screening of Naked Normandy. 'I can sum it up as 10 minutes of complete embarrassment, followed by two hours of why have we never done this before?'

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers may not have been on the program, but the special screening in Tel Aviv last week of the new French comedy “Naked Normandy” was clearly a “cheek to cheek” heaven. No stylist was needed and no expensive frocks were prepared for this unusual event: the first-ever nude film screening to be held in Israel.

nude yoga

When's the last time you got naked? Not sexy naked, or lazy naked, but naked for the sake of wellness?

It's January, which means you're still honouring those New Years resolutions: you might call your parents more, you maybe bought a class pass that you're absolutely going to use this time around and perhaps you're drinking more water.

That's all well and good, but you're probably not doing these things in the nude, and that's a big problem. Why? Because, as it turns out, there are a whole host of benefits to being in your birthday suit.

Joschi Schwarz and Monica Werner, co-owners of Bold; Naked yoga studio in New York and authors of old Naked - Let Your Body Talk, tell us what's to gain from taking it all off.

nudist beaches 09 08 2018

While living in Barcelona, Radhika Sanghani has made it her mission to visit as many as she can this summer.
I’m ON a beach on the; Costa Brava. The sand is smooth and white, the sea is turquoise and clear, and there is naked flesh everywhere.

It is impossible to escape. There are families running around with bits dangling, older couples with lined folds and bronzed women slathering their bodies in factor 30. No matter where I turn I’m confronted with bums and boobs.

The sight is overwhelming. I have never seen so much nudity. In my normal London life, the closest I get to public undressing is in the yoga changing rooms, or the occasional topless sunbathing session at the Hampstead ladies’ pond — where you have to put your bikini back on before you go for a swim.
