A billboard for bodycare brand Ecoya, which features a naked woman straddling a horse, has been blocked from running on outdoor sites in Australia.
The Outdoor Media Association deemed that the ad – which was permitted to run in New Zealand – breached its code of ethics and did not treat sex and nudity with due sensitivity, and would be seen by children as well as its target audience of adult women.
The image is running on Ecoya’s website, with a number of others of naked women with animals. Ecoya’s New Zealand-based chairman Geoff Ross said he had also tried to run an image of a woman posing with an owl on Australian billboards. But that was also refused by the OMA.
On Puur op reis we posted a newsitem about San Francsico nudity. If there is an update on the subject, please let uw know.

Of course: just run Google translator to be able to read in in English or any other language.

American art photographer Spencer Tunick is fully aware of the brewing controversy surrounding his project at the Dead Sea. But the photographer known around the world for taking pictures of large groups of nude figures at popular locations has no plans of not going through with the installation.
"It's about promoting the body as an art form, not as a pornographic entity," Tunick told Israeli media at a May 11 Tel Aviv press conference. "I know that the separation is sometimes difficult for people but there has to be separation."

I believe naturists can make a contribution to the fight to preserve the ecology of our planet. We will never convince the mainstream to join us in nudity, there are too many prejudices. But, we can call attention to destructive practices and in doing so, in time, bring about changes. One we can look at immediately, is the toxic chemicals absorbed by the skin from clothing. Cotton may be the largest source of dioxins found in the human blood stream. Polyester, a petroleum product, has reproductive side effects. There are many issues like this that we can actively work on.
I have been a nudist all my life. I enjoyed being nude as a child, although I was made to feel guilty about it (tut! tut!). In my early 20s, I discovered a nudist spot on the banks of the Yarra River, outside Melbourne (Australia), and started going nude there (generally alone). I enjoyed sunbaking, swimming, and floating down the river on an inflatable mattress (all nude of course). I also discovered a nudist beach, so spent my summer vacations either at the beach or by the river.
