Another Good Reason to Get your Kit Off – The Microwave Bra!

Microwave braI’ve long known that clothing can kill you. In fact I devote a whole chapter to the subject in my book Nice Girls Can Be Nudists Too.

I’ve also been banging on for years about the close connection between wearing bras and breast cancer as pointed out by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer in their 1995 book, Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras.

Quick summary of their findings in case you’ve not come across this yet:

According to the authors, wearing a bra can cause all manner of unpleasantness. It seems that ladies who wear bras for more than twelve hours each day except for bed are twenty-one times more likely to get breast cancer than those who wear bras less than twelve hours per day. Those who wear bras even in bed are one hundred and twenty-five times more likely to get breast cancer than those who don’t wear bras at all!

These findings have been disputed but never invalidated, and more recent studies, such as a 2009 Chinese study that found that not sleeping in a bra dropped a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 60%, have reinforced the initial findings (1).            Continue reading

Naturism makes you a happier person – official!

Happy nudists

What took them so long to find out?
Social nudity might make you happier, according to a new study from Goldsmiths University of London. 
Researchers surveyed 849 people, and found that those who had spent time in the nude outdoors with other people were happier, felt better about their bodies, and had higher self-esteem than those who didn’t shed their clothes. Continue reading

Yet another beach closure due to “fake naturist” behaviour

The Department of Natural Resources in Wisconsin announced today that the nude beach near Mazomanie would be shut down on weekdays. The DNR said that the move was to combat the growing menace of so-called nudists having public sex and doing drugs in the woods.

My last three posts have been about closures and clampdowns due to the behaviour of people who I refer to as “fake naturists”, ( ie. the sex, swinging and flashing crowd who have hijacked our movement.)
I’m really, really, disappointed, and more than a little tired of fighting against these people. Am I fighting a lost cause? Does anybody else care? Or am I doomed to become a solitary nudist, restricted to the confines of my own back garden, having relinquished control of the beaches and resorts to the fakes?

The Top Five Nude Beaches in the World


By Liz Boudreau

The very thought of heading for a nude beach gives many people the shakes. For others, it’s a natural occurrence and a natural consideration. If you’re comfortable in your own skin, they argue, why not head out in just that skin?
There are a variety of things to consider when choosing a nude beach. Many experts say location is one factor as you probably want some measure of privacy (and most nude beaches offer this). Other factors to consider are the age range of people who visit the beach (you’ll likely want to be with a group
around your own age) and other factors that really have to do more with your own comfort level.
If you are considering heading to a nude beach, why not head for the best? Here’s a list of the top 5 nude beaches, as chosen by the Travel Channel.
1.Montalivet, France.
This area is called the international birthplace of the naturalist movement. At this beach resort,
you can camp (most popular) or stay in one of the 172 bungalows. This is a family resort, so if it’s in your comfort level to include the kids, you won’t be the only ones. This resort features a wide variety of classes that range from soccer to yoga and everything includes the whole family. This gives new meaning to the term au natural!
2.Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
Famous for its many beach resorts, this area of Jamaica also includes the Couples Resort, which is an excellent start for the new nudists. The resort itself it not a nudist resort, but there’s a beach just offshore that’s for nudists. Featuring a pristine beach, private cozy nooks all around and a cabana bar, this island is private and safe, making newbies feel comfortable in their newly exposed skin.
3.Wreck Island, British Columbia.
This four-mile stretch of beach is so named because a huge wrecked sea vessel once inhabited the sand. At this friendly beach, you can enjoy the nesting area of the bald eagles, and know civilization is just a few steps away (the University of British Columbia is just a few hundred steps above the beach). One of the most lively parts of this beach is Vendor’s Row, where you can shop (in the nude) for souvenirs, handmade items and other goodies (including sunscreen, which you’ll need in abundance).
4.Samurai Beach, Australia.
Located in Port Stephens, this beach backs up to the clothing-optional Bardot’s resort. At the beach, you can enjoy nude volleyball, Frisbee, and tug of war. This is the spot of the famous Nude Olympics, which are held each year. Events include Nude Surfing, Nude Beach Girl and Guy Competition and Nude Torch Relay.
5.Hedonism II, Jamaica.
Yes, laid-back Jamaica can claim two of the top five nude beaches. At this clothing optional resort, expect a good party. There’s nude swimming, sunbathing and volleyball, as well as what the resort calls a “lush garden of playful passion”. Designed for playful couples and singles, the resort features a big party scene, lots of lush and delicious food and a nude good time all around.
