Did you know that France's first public nudist club night was organized this past summer by Point Ephémère?

The night started off with people trickling in but soon the club filled up and "the longer the night went on, the more it felt like any other club night – people splitting into their natural groups either on the dance floor or off to the sides in conversation. But there seemed something different in the way people related to each other. With sex off the table, interactions seemed more natural, kinder and less predatory. Some light flirting did happen, but it seemed less codified, less bold."

Demonstrating respect for self and for others is a key facet of naturism. Whether you are standing fully, or partially clothed or complete nude it need not matter the way in which a person interacts should not change in any way. The organizers of this event ensured that guest we're aware of the rules and created a "good-natured occasion".

"I'm confident, I'm secure of my self, this is how I would like to present myself to the world..." .- Kate Logan

For those who don't know the name Kate Logan The Naturist Living Show recently re-interviewed Kate Logan who, 20 years ago, dropped her robe during her graduation speech and finished speaking completely nude in front of 200 classmates, faculty, parents, family, and friends. Her story went viral around the world in a time well before Facebook and other electronic social media became popular. She was and is still unrepentant. Her act was filled with meaning and principles. Listen in to The Naturist Livings latest show here: http://skyclad.me/katelogan

We can always count on @nwanderings to share such fantastic and wonderful positive stories about naturism and becoming/being a naturist.

Here's a snippet from Raven's story recently featured on Nick and Lins site:

"So as young as 14 my mom had always pointed out the signs for naturist parks, I was very closed minded about it and had no intentions of ever going! As years went on, signs clearly did my mom in as she took an interest and dove right in! She asked me if I would ever be interested in going with her. This was a big NO for me. I said I would stay locked in the car if she ever took Me, I wouldn’t look at any naked people and I would certainly not join them!"

Then came a weekend where her sisters would be going to a naturist park (Bare Oaks!) for the weekend, so against everything Raven had previously said the past 18 years of her life, she agreed to go.

"As soon as I got to the park everyone was naked! who knew! it seemed so normal though.. the park seemed so welcoming. The people were just all so nice. I watched the welcoming video, and as soon as I got back to my mom’s trailer.. the clothes were off and that’s where the story ends! Or really just began!"

The post goes on diving into questions like "Do you find it easy to make naturist friends?" and "What’s the best tip you have for beginning naturists?"
The one question that caught our attention the most was "What do you think is the best about naturism?"

"The best thing about being a naturist is the community. Everyone feels like family ( especially at Bare Oaks) the ease of going up to anyone and saying even a simple hello is so cool! Most the time people just strike up a conversation, and you never get that in the cities!"

We couldn't agree more that the community aspect of naturism is incredible and can truly be seen everywhere at Bare Oaks. The focus on respect for self and for other drives the community mentally. Bare Oaks is it. own community, whose members genuinely care for one another, and being a part of that is just one thing that makes Bare Oaks a place like no other.

Has a trip to Ireland ever been on your bucket list?

If as a naturist you ever wanted a quiet gateway in Dublin we have found a place for you! Pine Tree House B&B has just opened in Dalkey, Co Dublin.

The four-bed Victorian mid-terrace house is “clothing optional — which respects the choice of each individual guest, allowing you to be nude or not, depending on your preference”.

Guests of the naturist friendly B & B are told "they must follow “naturist etiquette” and accept the current law which states: “Public nudity has only deemed an offence when someone is intending to cause fear, distress or alarm, or engages in sexual activity.”

Check out the rest of the article from The Irish Sun here: http://skyclad.me/dublinnaturistbrb

Who's going to Dublin?
😮🇮🇪🏡🛏️🚫👕🚫👖️👍

Do you wear anything to bed?

"Anna Swanson isn’t squeamish about admitting that she usually sleeps without clothes."

According to a new survey released this past summer, Swanson falls in with the majority, particularly in her Millennial age bracket of sleeping in the buff.

"Two-thirds of Millennials report sleeping in the nude, the poll by the mattress review site MattressAdvisor.com. Based on the survey which included 1,000 people across the country, 58 percent of whom said they sleep in the nude."

The results are further broken down base on age and relationship status. Want to know the rest of the results? Read the USA Today article here: http://skyclad.me/sleepbetterinthenude

How comfortable are you in your bare skin? Can you enjoy every curve and crevice your body has earned over the years? And are you willing to relax and indulge in your nudity? 

If you’re already uncomfortable, it’s even more important to consider it.

“We use clothing as a shield to project a certain image. We believe so strongly in the power of what we wear that we are never fully comfortable with our true self,” explains Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park owner and host of The Naturist Living Show podcast, Stéphane Deschênes.

Bare Oaks is where visitors come to bare it all, and we don't typically share videos of guest but in this case, we couldn't help it! The visitor wasn't our normal bare guests, it was an actual bear!!! 🐻😮

This is not the first time a bear has been spotted this year. Generally, they are still afraid of people which is a good thing. But they keep coming back because they find food. For information on how to repel bears and avoiding bear-human interactions: http://skyclad.me/bearnotbare

For us, naturism is a way of life. We know that living this way leads to a wholesomeness and stability of the body, mind, and spirit.

"Naturism, or nudism, is a lifestyle choice the majority of people do not understand or see the appeal for. But for those who do, it is an enlightening experience they couldn't live without."
This is a quote pulled from an interesting Podcast Matt Collins did back in September with Jenny Parry. The discussion touches on a number of topics including the very common "Is there ever a concern for the men, and the woman for that matter, that certain parts of the male anatomy may get aroused?" and then others such as "Why do you think there is such a negative stigma surrounding being naked in public?, and Was it important you instilled that relaxed view on clothing to your children?".
