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.
This was theTV programme that started us on our naturist adventures. First shown on BBC TV in 1979, it was responsible for a major surge in interest in UK naturism. Courtesy of YouTube. Apologies for the quality.
Fun-loving over-50 Brits are casting aside their inhibitions on holiday as they embrace the opportunity to behave badly, according to a new survey by travel insurance company Staysure, with six percent admitting to using a nudist beach whilst away.
The survey discovered that mature Brits aren’t nearly as reserved as the rest of the world believes, with body image, shyness and money woes all forgotton as liberated middle-aged Brits cut loose on holiday and get up to all sorts of misdemeanours that they’d never dream of doing at home. Full story here.
I guess Canada isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think of relaxing on a nude beach, but it can boast some world class clothes-optional beaches and yes, the weather is often plenty warm enough!
The law regarding public nudity in Canada is not straightforward. There are dozens of nude beaches across the country, though only a handful of them are legally recognized as clothing-optional beaches. Many others are unofficially recognized as clothing-optional beaches where authorities do not arrest nude sunbathers. This article from The Huffington Post shows you where to go. . .

Rebekah Kendal comes up with some ideas about where to get naked in South Africa. The article itself is a little giggly, and she doesn’t mention the magnificent Sandy Bay beach at Llandudno, Cape Town, but there are enough useful links ( one of which I couldn’t get to work!) to get you started if you happen to find yourself in that part of the world.
