naked australiaLet’s play a word game. We’ll say nudist and we’re guessing that the first thing that springs to mind is a leathery old dude letting it all hang out on Sydney’s Lady Bay Beach. 

Well, think again. Nudism in Australia is having a bit of a renaissance and it isn’t just those well-seasoned at life who are getting their kit off. 

The next generation wanting to bare all is a little younger, around the ages of 18 to 40 years old, and are sharing their nudey moments via Instagram.

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?”

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.
