Interview of Anna and Steve, from England
It’s been a long time since we’ve welcomed a naturist couple to be featured on Nude & Happy. Today, we are going to the UK and more precisely to England to meet Anna and Steve, the wonderful family founder of A Naturist World.
Anna, thank you very much for having accepted to be featured on this series of naturist couple’s interviews. Let’s go right to naturism, was there a first naturist who introduced the other to naturism?

When you’re together, where do you practice naturism?
Basically if we have the opportunity and the temperature is supportive of our needs, we will be naked. If one of us has to be off doing something that involves clothes, the other is lucky to be able to continue enjoying naturism wherever we may be. While we lived in Spain, we only dressed for school pick-ups and shopping. In the UK we do not force the issue. If we are cold the …
