Nude YogaSomehow it seems like naked yoga or naked pilates are becoming a bit of a habit when we visit major cities in the world. Our most impressive naked workout and probably also the one we will remember for the rest of our lives is still our Naked in Motion class on the eleventh floor of a building in downtown Manhattan. A nude yoga class while you’re watching the sun setting over the New York skyline… It’s something you don’t forget that easily.strong>

Recently we found ourselves dropping our pants again for a naked yoga class in another one of the world’s most impressive cities: Buenos Aires. Color Natural is a local organization which organizes naked yoga, dance and body expression classes in artistic and body positive environments spread around the city.

9 Tips for First Time Nudie CoupleWe’ve been talking about how to take the first steps as a man or as a woman, but the best way (at least to us because that’s how we started) is as a couple. Most probably one of the two will drop the idea “honey, this summer I would like to spend our holidays in the nude”. The other half will then respond with a “Yay, I want this too” or an “I’m not so sure about that” or even a “Where the hell did you get that ridiculous idea from?”. It doesn’t really matter, as long as you did your research and know what you’re talking about, your better half might give it a chance.

Even better is of course (lucky us!!) if you stumble into the lifestyle as a couple.

1. This is not the place to be jealous

We like to protect what’s ours, it’s an animal instinct which few of us can get rid of. We see others as a possible threat to our relationship and we want to avoid that. Okay, this is a very reasonable thought and we do understand your concerns but we want you to forget everything about it. Really. Drop that thought.

cyber fortressSo I read the Nick and Lins piece about naturism on Facebook the other day on Naked Wanderings when they lamented the many ironies of social media policies where simple nudity is forbidden, while all sorts of other atrocities somehow slip through the cracks. To be sure, navigating the internet in search of reliable information about people who are earnestly interested in social nudity is a slippery slope that will almost certainly lead your favorite search engine into various porn sites, while helping you find “new friends seeking benefits,” not to mention an unsolicited fan club willing to send you pictures of their genitalia. Who could have imagined any of this back before the digital age?
But here’s a thought for the day: What about all of us who feel so passionately about the naturist cause that we’ve barricaded ourselves in the naked cyber-fortress. That is, surrounding ourselves in naturist propaganda if you will until we actually lose perspective of how one’s quirky desire to doff his clothing is actually perceived in the greater context of the textile-loving masses.

TAMWORTH – The Township of Stone Mills failed in its bid to stop a planning appeal from a couple wanting to expand a clothing-optional campground.
In a decision released last week, the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal denied the township’s application to have the couple’s appeal thrown out.

The validity decision doesn’t settle the matter, it only lets the case go on to a hearing, if necessary.

Last year, Yvonne Gibson and her husband, Hector Gravelle, started the process to have their 40-hectare property on Carroll Road rezoned to allow them to expand the campground at  Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch, which they have operated without the proper zoning since 2012.

winter scene in canadaIt is that time of year again and let's be honest, for many naturists winter is a difficult time of year. We don’t all live in sunny Florida or a Caribbean island so there are going to have to be some sacrifices. We have had to turn the heat on in our home, and the fireplace has been lit a few times already this autumn.
Sadly no more trips to Port Burwell, or Hanlan's Point until spring. Worst of all, my wonderful all over tan that reached a healthy glow over the summer thanks to frequent doses of natural vitamin D, has already started to fade. We are entering into the “dire straits” of naturism. I have blogged about the perils of being a northern nudie in winter before but rather than just repost those I thought I would have another look at what we do to get through the sub-zero season and look at options others might find useful, a sort of Winter Naturist Survival Guide if you will.
