By: Nick & Lins

It’s that time of the year. Reindeers are making their nests on snow-covered roofs. Friendly bearded men in red pajamas are bringing joy to the families and Mariah Carey seems to be everywhere again. We know what that means. 2019 is about to end. Time to start making your new year’s resolutions. How many people are you going to make happy in 2020? Which foods and drinks are you going to leave behind? More exercise? Less smoking?
We can’t help you with that. But we can help you figuring out which nudist blogs will be worth a read in the new year. Below are a number of nudist blogs that we’ll definitely keep an eye on in 2020.

Musings about the Terminology of Social Nudity

By: Nick & Lins

We got into a discussion the other day because we had decided to add The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society to our list of promising nudists blogs for 2020. The other party was correct. This blog has very little to do with nudism or naturism. They don’t talk about nudism or the different aspects of it. They don’t talk about naturist resorts or nude beaches. There is a huge case of gender-inequality. Basically, it’s just a group of women who get nude or topless together. Although their blog is largely non-sexual, in one of their latest posts they do talk about the erotic side of nudity and even about orgies.
Everyone who has just read this first paragraph will agree with our friend that this blog has nothing to do with nudism at all and that we’ve made a mistake adding them to our list. Then the question arises: “if they’re not a nudist blog, then what are they?”.
We can’t say that it’s a sexual blog because 95% of their posts are non-sexual.
It’s has nothing to do with swinging either.
A feminist or female-liberation blog might be an option, but where do we put the social nudity in that picture?
We have a serious terminology issue here.

The Naturist Talks: Mark and Tracey from the UK

By: Nick & Lins

Naturism is a wonderful lifestyle that we try to enjoy as much as possible. In as many places as possible. Most of the time we share our own views on the different aspects of nudism but once in a while, we like to pass the mic to hear about how someone else’s experiences. Via this Naturist Talks interview series, we listen to naturists from all over the world. They share their experiences, tips and stories about naturism and thanks to them we keep learning about the different aspects of life in the nude.
Today we’re listening to Mark and Tracey, a naturist couple from the UK.

 

Hello Mark and Tracey, please tell us something about yourself

Hi, we are Mark & Tracey and we have been married now for 31 years. We have two sons and a daughter and Bob the dog. I (Mark) am also a petrol head and race myself. Our eldest son and Daughter are both now married which just leaves our youngest son still living at home. Tracey is now beginning to feel comfortable while nude and is a Hammers fan. She is also now an amputee of the left lower leg for 5 years.

Happy Nude 2020!

By: Nick & Lins

Oh what an amazing year was 2019!
This is already the 4th time that we (as in Naked Wanderings) are wishing you a wonderful new year. This blog post is the 344th one on this website. And this is also our 3rd year of traveling. Meanwhile, it has become a bit of a tradition that in this first blog post of the new year we reflect on what’s behind us and try to have a peek at what’s waiting down the road.

 

For Naked Wanderings, 2019 has been a success story. We visited so many naturist campings, B&Bs, resorts, beaches, clubs, and events. In 2019, almost 1.4 million different people from 234 different countries have visited this website. We don’t know the exact stats but we do believe that this makes Naked Wanderings one of the most read naturist/nudist publications in the world.

21 Nude Festivals and Nudist Events in 2020

By: Nick & Lins

For a long time, the top nude event of the year was some kind of petanque or volleyball tournament, organized in the local naturist club. Members only. We can imagine that it was a lot of fun, having the whole club together for a day or maybe two, engaging in a communal nude activity. On the other hand, those nudist events didn’t seem much different than any given Sunday at the club.

During the last years, nude events have broken out of their original settings. British Naturism was among the first to realize how cool a nudist event could be on a national level and several other naturist federations quickly followed. Today, in many cases we can hardly still talk about a nudist event, but rather of a nude festival. Nudists from all over the country and often even from all over the world gather for a couple of days of great activities, music and social nudity.
With more and more nudist events and festivals being organized all over the world, it becomes harder for bloggers like ourselves to list them all. Which is something we can’t be more happy about. Nude festivals are conquering the world! If you still have some empty spaces in your agenda, we’ll quickly fill them up for you!

Naturist Thought #99 – Practice

By: Marc

Practice makes perfection. You may have heard about the 10,000-hour rule introduced by Malcom Gladwell in his famous book Outliers. So goes naturism I think. The more time you spend naked in naturist setting, the more nudity becomes natural and you’ll soon become an expert naturist.

If you grasp every opportunity to get naked, be it at the beach, on a hike or at home with friends, you’ll soon be very comfortable in your own skin. Sometimes, at the beginning of your naturist journey, you may feel awkward being naked, particularly in a mixed audience, with clothed and other naked people.

But the more you practice, the more nudity becomes normal and you can get naked more frequently. You’ll soon discover there are plenty opportunities when you can be naked, more than you can imagine. Keep practicing!

Naturist Thought #98 – Entitlement

By: Marc

People seem more and more entitled these days, starting with kids. I do not know whether it’s true or not, or just an effect of time, however my feeling is we are not entitled to many thing but keep fighting. Social, non sexual nudity should be a right, most naturists agree and naturist federations and associations fight for this right to be enforced.

But is nudity an entitlement? On one side, I really think it should, as it is simply giving back humanity without the artifice of clothing. On another one, being nude should not be a privilege or a benefit, which an entitlement is, but the simple expression of our humanity, in its simplest form.

So, with some thinking, I come to realize that being naked in nature, at home or in naturist places is not an entitlement, it’s a choice that we have in most countries and that we should enforce through laws. However, as, for most people, nudity equals sex, we need to constantly educate about naturism and its many benefits, this is the only way the right to be naked will prevail. Not as an entitlement, but our simple basic right.

Naturist Thought #97 – Longevity

By: Marc

Many people have been trying to increase human life. Of course, we all would like to live as long as possible in good health. In an article published in Psychology Today and entitled The Naked Truth About Longevity, Prof. Kravitz, from the University of New Mexico reveals the secret of longevity: minimizing stress, maintaining physical activity, keeping your brain active, socializing, and laughing more.

IF you’ve ever spent some time in a naturist setting, all this can be applied and even magnified. Spending time in nature is a well known way to reduce stress (read this article from the American Heart Association), spending time naked in nature adds another level of stress reduction, IMHO.

Naturism is inherently a social activity and many clubs organize activities both for the body and the mind to keep fit and alert. So can naturism be a good way to increase longevity? I do believe so. Naturism knows no age, no gender, no religion, no sexual orientation and no color. What if it could lead to a longer and happier life?

Naturist Thought #96 – Heaven

By: Marc

What is heaven for a naturist? A place where he or she can be nude all day long with like-minded individuals. Most naturist places look like heaven when the weather allows to get and stay naked.

Hell on the other side is a place where you could be naked but need to be clothed, like a textile beach where being nude will lead you to jail. Being naked is so comfortable that it’s always a mystery to me that people still want to wear clothes when they could be heavenly naked.

So heaven on earth is definitely a naked heaven, and hopefully if there’s an after life heaven, it has to be naked too. In the meantime, life’s better when lived as much nude as possible, whenever and wherever possible.
