Nudist restaurant in ParisThe owners of the first nudist restaurant in Paris have announced its closing soon. O’naturel is not getting as much response of people who would desire to watch naked strangers having food. The owners overestimated consumers demand to experience the nudist way of life. The cafe will zip up or close its doors in February. The cafe opened in November last year and hasn't been seeing as much as customers as it expected.

Mike and Stephane Saada took the opportunity to start this cafe since Paris is known as a global tourist destination for nudists. Nudist beaches, resort sites for vacationers aren't unheard of. So why not extend it to eating in the buff? They decided to take the lifestyle in the food arena but unfortunately, the decision wasn't favourable. "We will only remember the good times, meeting beautiful people and customers who were delighted to share exceptional moments," the restaurateurs said in a report. They aren't nudist themselves but they opened this as a concept for those who want to try the nudist way of living.

Is topless sunbathing over? It certainly is in France, according to French Elle, if the coverline on its new summer issue is to be believed: "La Fin Du Topless Sur La Plage?" – which translates, verbatim, to "Is this the end of toplessness on the beach?"

cobblers bay skinny dipThe warm days of summer are almost upon us. Nudity on some Australian beaches is inevitable. But exactly how much of our flesh can we bare, and when, and where?

It should surprise no-one that, when it comes to the law and naked bodies, context is everything. The man who strips off for the sauna at the gym without any repercussions could be subject to a fine of many thousands of dollars if, a few hours later, he were to streak across the MCG during the cricket. The woman who plays beach volleyball in her birthday suit at New South Wales’ oldest nudist stretch of sand, Lady Bay Beach, without legal consequences, could be fined an hour later should she not put on some form of covering when walking back to her car.

Millennial here. Hi, hello. Nice to meet you.

As a millennial–a millennial who has visited a fair share of nudist recreation spots–let me start off by acknowledging how comically out-of-place a millennial is at a nudist club. Not out of place in an unwelcome way. In fact, you may not find a more welcome guest at a nudist club than a millennial–really, nudists are so kind and I’ve never felt unwelcome. When I say “out-of-place,” I mean it in the sense that there just are not many other millennials there. The same goes for online nudist social networks: Yes, there are some millennials there, but the group skews significantly older which, of course, is fine. It has never bothered me, as a millennial, that the majority of the other patrons are older, but it does concern me as a nudist who wants nudism to thrive.

As a millennial, I need to be completely honest: There is one nude recreation spot where millennials can be found en masse: the beach. Go to any nude beach and you will find us. We’re there. Is it free? Even better. And I don’t mean to say that I have never seen a millennial at a nudist club. I have seen myself, for one, and my partner.
