What We Are Reading This Week

Body Image
- At 419 pounds, Stavros Luca is not your typical beauty pageant contestant. But that did not keep this body-assured man from entering the Mr. Gay UK contest. With overwhelming support from the audience, Stavros won 1st place! The story is awesome and inspiring, but it does not quite have a happy ending. The local news coverage erased him in the storyline, and event coordinators determine to disqualify on him two days later on a bullshit technicality. Read the complete story here, and the short Guardian documentary (embedded at the end) is worth seeing. [ ]
Results from one of BuzzFeed's Body Image Survey Questions
- BuzzFeed began a Body Image Survey on Friday. Up to now almost 60% of respondents said they have a poor body image and 33% said they believe negative thoughts about their body "more than a couple of times a day." The second question asks if you think you look better naked or clothed - only 16% said "naked." Additionally they polled about how much you love or hate particular body parts. Only 13% said they adore their vagina. But for the manhood question, 91% said they don't have a member, so perhaps men weren't interested in this survey at all? Regardless, one thing is clear: there is still much work to be done on the body image front!
- Famed "plus size" model and body approval promoter Tess Munster went on HuffPost Live to talk about posing nude and her past and current struggles with her body image." model and body approval advocate Tess Munster went on HuffPost Live to talk about posing naked and her previous and present struggles with her body image.

Topfree Equality
Thus far I'd describe the consensus as "well intentioned, but shallow and amateurish." The New York Times described it as "first and foremost the cinematic equivalent of a billboard." For now, here's among the positive reviews that I loved in Time, which focuses on why topfree equality issues.
Naked Yoga
- Another writer tried a NYC naked yoga course at Bold & Naked Yoga, and gave a cunning, favorable report of her encounter. [Nicely Great]
It focuses a nudist club in Britain called Spielplatz. Based on click , it sounds just a little glum. The whole 45-minute documentary can be streamed on YouTube. [The Guardian]

- To promote their new movie, Seth Rogen and James Franco did a spoof episode of Naked and Afraid. There were some good jokes, and they managed to do it without body-shaming. The best line: Seth asking for a giant blur on his crotch area. It's possible for you to watch it online here.
Oldie but Goodie
- Initially printed in Bitch magazine in 2012, this in-depth report on naturism is exceptional. It's favorable overall, but the writer brings up some valid criticisms and questions about the future of the naturist movement. Anyone concerned with the future of naturism should read it.

FKK Explains What's it Like To Be A Nudist

What Is it Like To Be A Naturist?
What's it Like To Be A Nudist - For starters, this picture below is a rendering of how nudists are perceived in today's society as well as how nudists see themselves. We hope you like it :) Think of it as our little way of shedding some light on how we ourselves are perceived by many in today's society. Then view our very own interpretation of how we young nudists and naturists see ourselves!
Nudism described:
Many folks in America, which is still mostly puritanical, look askance at nudism. Some have been citing it as one of the wayward social developments of the 20th century. Far from really being a prurient or deviant practice, a large part of people in the U.S. comprehend that nudism offers a means to recover the integrity one had as a kid.
What Is it Like To Be A Fkk
Nudists And Their Philosophy:
As a person grows up in America, he / she is often subjected to influences that cause body shame. In essence we need to be saved from ourselves. Islam and Catholicism are punitive, inducing many, particularly girls, to live in anxiety for something that should come as naturally to them as the atmosphere they breathe.
It keeps coercing us into feeling that we, as our natural selves, are inadequate and this inadequacy can simply be remedied by using their products. Untold numbers of energy are wasted on the unnecessary stress that these trends create. with the simple, healthy lifestyle of the nudists. In the nudist naturist community you'll be accepted as you are. Imagine not having to bother with -ending baggage, both actual and psychological, that the "textilists" inflict. No longer will the thing that houses your spirit be viewed as a fetish object or something to be laughed at. and acknowledgement that nudism supports stands in stark contrast to the assault on the ego that airbrushed pictures perpetrate. As a naturist, you will see the body as it was meant to be in all its individuality. is a method to fight the unhealthy strictures that conservatives have imposed on America in recent decades. At a nudist resort you will, for the first time in several years, be truly free. and the self-respect at these areas is actually uncommon. The nudist resorts and various functions are almost the only places where one can relax and be oneself without worry.
Some mention safety as a concern when considering a visit to a fkk community. You'll be reassured and happy to know the entry conditions are more stringent than those of the best country clubs. Some might do background checks to ensure that your stay will be enjoyable and beneficial. There's less of a chance that something will occur to you or your family members at a fkk resort than at Disneyland.
Its professionals frequently cultivate habits that smarter and healthier that those of the mainstream. These customs include nude yoga and vegetarianism. It is all part of an outlook on life that encourages the unencumbered actualization of the person.
The thought that nudists put into their lifestyle makes certain that few have regretted their decision to become

A Rant About Climate Change

Along with naturism, I'm interested in lots of other things. Including the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which are quickly (not slowly) ruining the planet Earth.
Now, I adore summer and warm weather, and I'm just as eager as the next naturist to leave the clothes in my own dressing table and run to the closest naked beach or club on the first decent springtime day. (Sunshine!! Spring! Flowers! Sunscreen! I get really excited.) But there am more worried than excited this season. With all the record breaking hot temperatures throughout the U.S. (80 degrees, Chicago, in March?!), you may have been wondering like I haveIs it merely part of the natural weather cycles? Or is itdun dun dunGLOBAL WARMING ?
Only concerning the March heat waves, that question will take several months of research and analyzing to reply. But global warming, more precisely called climate change, IS NOT ONLY a natural weather cycle. It's occurring, it's human-caused and we must do something about it. Yet according to a Gallup poll, only 34% of Americans agree that it is a serious problem needing immediate action. Have you seen or read about scientists or anyone debating the event of climate change? And debating whether it's brought on by individuals or not? Newsflash: It Is not a debate. The world's leading scientists have gotten together, did their studies and research, and supported that. Actually, based on the publication Think by attorney / legal analyst Lisa Bloom, the UN brought them together 4 times since 1990 to validate that it's a human-caused occurrence taking effect right now.
The National Geographic Society, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the EPA, NASA, NOAA, all agree the effects of climate change can already be seen in rising ocean levels and melting glaciers. An incredible number of folks will be forced to relocate or flooded from their dwellings and villages, and yet people in the Pacific island nations for example, will have nowhere to go.

Meanwhile, apathy appears to rule the American population as well as the U.S. government. United Nations has long been criticizing the U.S. because it's not adopted a comprehensive domestic plan for reducing its own greenhouse gas emissions, according to the NY Times article, Global Warming & Climate Change.The last large climate change bill did not make it past the Senate.
Now I understand that we now have tons of other problems to worry about in the world like poverty, captivity, FGM. But who cares about the slaves and the poor people if they're going to die in a huge cyclone in the close future? If url can no longer live on this planet, I (like Bloom) argue that all the other issues become secondary. Including naturism, if we don't have any planet to go nude on.
Though climate change is a huge world-wide menace, elected officials are sitting on their hands. Thankfully, we can battle it on an individual level. So what can we do? have also never seen a much better reason for going vegetarian or only eating less meat. Another recent study says we must cut meat consumption in half by 2050 to avert climate disaster. See resources below for more ways to cut back emissions and slow down climate change.
So, what does one think about global warming / climate change? Do you believe it is a problem? Are you currently taking action and if so, how?

Is The Petition For More Clothes-Elective Areas Worthwhile or A Big Waste of Time?

Guest site
White House Request for Clothing-Optional Places
More clothes-optional areas - For those of you unaware, on January 13th, Larry Darter of the Dallas Examiner created a "We the People" request that calls for all Federal lands to have clothes-optional areas. It is puttered along for several weeks and AANR has set their stamp of approval on it. Currently 's just over 2,500 signatures of the 100,000 wanted. With only two weeks to go, it doesn't seem like it'll meet it's aim. Some may see this as an indicator of the downfall of naturism or that naturists have serious privacy concerns, making them frightened to death of really putting a signature on anything. I've a slightly different stance.
The "We the People" campaign is made by the U.S. Government in 2011 as a means to receive feedback from its citizens about political, social, and economical dilemmas, giving the average person a way to petition the government about their matters. Initially, only 5,000 signatures were needed for the White House to issue a reply. Immediately after launching, the amount soared to 25,000 and now it's 100,000. Despite of signatures needed ever growing, reaching the goal does not guarantee an official statement. Previously there have been petitions to label GMO food, legalize cannabis, and close Guantanamo Bay that have all exceeded the demands, but still fell on deaf ears. The White House is simply cherry-picking what they deem relevant and will get them the most press. Even if this request for more clothing-optional outdoor spaces does reach its goal and the White House picks it as among their significant issues, there's no index that the reply will truly address the issue or be serious by any means.
We the People White House Request
Another thing to mention is that there now are not any national laws against everyday, non-sexual nudity. Every one of the laws on record have been made firmly by the states. The consequence of the petition is that every national park and forest would quarter off sections for clothing-optional use. After that, who dictates where these clothing-optional areas are? Or how about the rear of any cave inhabited by a grizzly bear? Sure, they are clothing-optional too. Now, with authorities sanctioned clothes-optional places all over the place, there would have to be means to control all the nude people from wondering out of these designated regions. It wouldn't be long before a national law was signed, making all nonsexual nudity illegal. is actually nothing to legalize.
Do not get me wrong, I have nothing against a world with more nudie spots. It would be great if I turned out to be erroneous, and the petition ended up receiving an official, positive reply from your White House. FKK did post about the petition on Facebook and Twitter. Obtaining approval of the human body is what it's all about. But as it pertains to social nudity, I don't believe that creating modest clothing-optional zones is the answer, and by using the government's "We The People" website, with its fiddling responses and lack luster track record, does not help with the credibility of the cause.
It should be noted that the Naturist Action Committee issued an advisory responding to the petition (link below). Rather than urge everyone to sign, NAC essentially said they leave it up to the individual to decide whether to sign it.

The Northeast Naturist Festival 2011!

Summer is when most people get out of town on weekends, making excursions to the nude beach and our favorite naturist places. But some of the finest weekends are when a group of us take a trip to the same location such as to the Northeast Naturist Festival. This annual festival takes place at Empire Haven, a fkk resort / naturist campground in upstate NY that's been around for about 50 years. It was our first time at the NNF and at Empire Haven.
The holiday was a wonderful uplifting time! Six days of nonstop action, with numerous diverse workshops going on at every hour of the day (sessions more jam packed than at the TNS party). We tented (as usual) in their open rear field, and Empire has a vast area of trailers and tenting space, with and without comforts hook up. is made up of clubhouse with a snack-bar a big and little hot tub, wet sauna and heated pool. call the "khaki shack" was a cozy room lined with shelves of books and games. Just nearby is a cute and well-kept playground and two outdoor pavilions where meals were served. (The food was mostly good, but expensive.)
In between is lots of grassy yard used for workshop areas. The facilities are all fine except for the bathroom scenario- no nice public bathrooms.

But, we managed to do a lot! From African dance and drum classes to NAC / nudist topic discussions to meditation to a hike to Potters Falls, the tasks were varied and generally with 3 or 4 happening at any given time.
As a side note, I found that the TNS gathering in June was best suited to naturists that have a heavy interest in associated issues, laws, politics, and in what's going on with naturists everyw here ; whereas this festival was more about fun leisure activities, learning new hobbies, healing mind workshops and physical naked fitness sessions.

Each night was the notorious drum circle. We gathered around the fire pit with surrounded by an extensive ring of sand for folks to shimmy and dance around the fire. Various sorts of drums were available along the edge of the ring for individuals to join in the pounding.
The drum leader introduced the beats for everyone to drum in unison. On of dancers swung their cloths, Poi (those light-up balls), or shook their bells to add to the music. The coordinated thumping and primitive atmosphere were soothing and arousing at the exact same time.
We also attended a workshop with a synopsis of NAC dilemmas. I think it was too brief of a time period to discuss anything in depth and gain further insight into the issues brought up. But the top-free rights discussion was pretty relevant for

Understanding Nudism

Image titled Develop Into A Nudist Move 11
Notice that nudity is not flat. We're delivered nude which is our state that was pure. It doesn't mean it needs to become worn at all times, although garments retains people hot and it is typically essential to use in public places. There exists a period regarding permitting your natural personal you should be. Picture the liberty which will have emotion the atmosphere and sun hint your skin layer not only locations which might be usually revealed.

Photograph named Develop Into A Nudist Stage 22
Become familiar with nudism's goal. Nudism is all about greater than the straightforward act to be unclothed; additionally it is about obtaining nearer to nature. Inside your condition that is organic, you'll find no limitations between oneself and the world that is normal. How emptying and invigorating wouldn't it experience to rest comfortable in your own skin and naked about the seashore, or under a woods, one together with the pure world? Folks choose naturism to achieve this particular level of joy.
Graphic titled Develop Into A Nudist Action 33
Understand that nudity isn't generally sex. Nudity itself does not need to not be asexual, although indeed, folks have sex undressed. Since it leaves more towards the imagination unveiling clothing is often more than being absolutely naked sexually suggestive. If youare worried that learning to be a naturist implies youare opening up yourself to undesirable sexual activities, know that for most naturists, it's regarding being free not lecherous.
Being fully a naturist isn't about revealing yourself to others or obtaining public gender. are small people who choose naturism not, and for your causes that are above as a way to intimately relate genuinely to people.
Having said that, nudity might be attractive towards the detects in a means that is sexual. The senses are awakened by the feel of water or air flowing consistent across your complete body and might be stimulating. That is pure and healthy. You should unashamed to have or discover these feelings that are sex. Quelling sexual thoughts is unhealthy generally speaking, and halting these while in naturism negates' framework the healthful benefits of a lifestyle that is naturist.
