nude yoga field 1The UK's official naturist organization has seen a boost in membership for the first time in 15 years after hosting public bare all events designed to make nude lifestyles more mainstream.

British Naturism reported this week its representatives had swelled by nearly 10 percent this year, with the increase partly credited to a shift in approach away from behind-closed-doors functions to public outings including trips to restaurants, theatres and galleries.

Naked yoga and running classes were also said to have helped encourage newcomers to the movement as well as outdoor festivals such as Nudefest and Nudestock.

Club Orient

Club Oreient farewellFor those of you who have been following our postings online or read the emails we have previously sent, what we’re about to say should not come as a total shock. But, please read it carefully and understand the following only affects Orient Beach Club (OBC), which employs all of the staff and operates the resort. The Copropriété (Copro) which owns the land on which Club Orient is built and is similar to an HOA is responsible for the vast majority of structures.

OBC received its insurance money in full on October 31, 2017, which included business interruption insurance. It has now been over a year that OBC has been waiting for the Copro to receive its money, so the rebuilding can begin. 
OBC has had to pay “chomage partiel”, which is similar to unemployment in some countries, but different in that the company must pay out 85% of an employee’s actual wages and is reimbursed at only a percentage of minimum wage rates. This form of unemployment has been a very expensive proposition.

In their coffee chat, Jenni Parry shares with Matt Collins her nudist journey, including why she initially started taking off her clothes in public and what her children think about her nude ways.

nude sports bikeNudity during intense physical activity, although practiced by many ancestors could become in France an innovative approach to sport-health well-being. More than the state of mind sought by some, we will develop in this essay the benefits of naked sport on health. Let's discover sports naturism!

Although in France we are one of the countries with the largest number of centers for naturism, mentalities on this way of life evolve only very slowly. While in some Scandinavian countries like Denmark, this is a common practice and even a state of mind. In France, we still tend too much to associate nudism with vulgarity and sexual exhibition. Outside of nudism has nothing to do with sexuality. It's just the pleasure of being naked and in harmony with nature.  Nudity is just natural!

When you are naked, new pleasant sensations are perceived. Our senses are awake. We feel the water, the wind, the sun on our body.

Whether you grew up in a "naked house" or still feel squeamish in the flesh even by yourself, reaching the point where you finally feel good in your own skin—without any sartorial accoutrements—is a liberating moment.

It makes sense, then, that the body seems to like being naked. A cursory review of the research aligns time spent in the nude with an increased sense of self-confidence and improved health. Scientists agree that sleeping naked is a good way to start, especially for male fertility. "Out of 500 men, they found those who wore boxers during the day and were naked at night had 25 percent less damage to their sperm compared to the guys who wore tight briefs or boxer briefs," said functional medicine expert Will Cole.
