Educating Julie nudist movie

Here’s another nudist curiosity – an educational nudist movie that at the time was widely touted as an ideal introduction to naturism.
Production values aren’t all that great and the acting is, shall we say, acceptable, but it has a certain charm about it.
The storyline is basic. A timid college student, Julie, is assigned to write a research paper on “Nudity in the 1980’s”. She and her boyfriend, Steve, visit several nudist clubs in England, the south of France and in Florida to learn about why people like nudism. And that’s it really.
Believe it or not, this was quite an influential movie at the time, so just in case you missed it first time round, here it is again, courtesy of Youtube. Enjoy.

Caliente nudist resortA bevy of models, Playboy playmates and stars of reality shows, feature movies and video games are asking a federal judge to award them more than $1.6 million in compensation for the use of their images without permission or compensation.

22 Best Places to Skinny Dip ( according to CNN)

Nude Woman at the Waters Edge

CNN might not be best known as avid supporters of the nudist lifestyle, but they’ve come up with a list of 22 of what they consider to be the best places to skinny dip worldwide. The post also contains a slideshow of of the dazzling locations mentioned.
Be warned! You might not need swimsuits, but you’re going to need deep pockets to take advantage of some of the places on offer!
The locations really are worldwide, and include  Japan, China, Croatia, the USA, France and loads more. Dear old UK only gets one mention, ( Lady Falls, near Brecon in Wales) but I can vouch for this one as it’s not a million miles from my home and I’ve used it several times. Unlike some of the others it’s free to use, but you’ll need to prepare yourself for the breathtaking coldness of the water when you take the plunge!
If you’ve used any of the places mentioned, why not  comment on your impressions?

Nude Beach Closures; Is Pirate’s Cove next on the list?

Pirate’s Cove is one of the prettiest spots on California’s San Luis Obispo County’s southern coast, and one of the best nude beaches in the area. Up to now it’s always been a quiet, undeveloped spot passed over by the masses who head to Avila and Pismo.
That may all change in the next couple years as the county converts the area to a public park, complete with a paved parking lot, improved trails and restrooms.
Are we in danger of losing yet another fine beach?

Beaches at Fire Island New York no longer nude thanks to bad behaviour (and hurricanes.)

After hurricanes Sandy and Irene flattened the dunes on the Fire Island National Seashore, exposing beach views to the rest of the island, the National Park Service has decided to ban nude bathing because of the behaviour of some so-called “naturists”.
Prostitution, voyeurism, exhibitionism, public sex and masturbation have all become problems at the beach surrounding the Fire Island Lighthouse.
Yet another nudist resource lost, and another stain on the character of the nudist movement, because of the actions of these perverts masquerading as naturists.
Sometimes, increasingly these days,I despair, I really do. . .

New Nudist Beach at Key West?

Proof that the world recession isn’t wholly a bad thing.

The City fathers of Key West, Florida are “considering whether or not to allow nude bathing at one of their beaches”, citing the success of the designated naturist beach at Haulover Beach Park on Miami Beach.

The clincher may be the economic situation. Commissioners point to the success of Haulover and also the increased tourist revenues of nearby Cuba, which has official nudist beaches.

The commissioners hope to put it to the ballot in October. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
