S Korea Nudist Resort Forced to Close

Bad news for nudists from S Korea, where attitudes against naturism and social nudity appear to be hardening.

The closure of the site follows a report, featured on this blog, that Korean tourists are feeling increasingly uncomfortable when encountering nude beaches abroad.

This may be a sad development for the international naturist community, but we should realise that other nations’ culture and values are different to ours, are no less valid and must be respected.

Australias’ Nude Olympics moving to New South Wales

Queensland has lost a nudist event worth $2 million-a-year to New South Wales.

Tnude olympics photohe annual Nude Olympics, which pulls more than 600 people a year to Noosa’s Alexandria Bay has been cancelled. The Australian Naturist Federation decided on the move after police  started to fine nude men swimming in Alexandra Bay with wilful exposure. Nude women were not fined.

The event, organised by the Australian Naturist Federation, will now be held this March at Byron Bay, either at its legal Tyagarah nude beach or the north Belongil Beach. Negotiations have already  begun with Byron Shire Council to hold the 2017 Nude Olympics at Belongil Beach.

ANF spokesman Stuart Whelan – who owns a naturists’ retreat in New South Wales – said the decision meant several million dollars in accommodation and restaurant takings was now lost to Noosa.

“We are talking several million dollars that will no longer be going through the local economy,” Mr Whelan said.

The logic of the decision to begin arresting nude male bathers, but not nude female bathers is frankly bizarre. Not only is it discriminatory and sexist but it will cost the local economy dear. I can only assume it was taken to demonstrate a smug sense of PC-ness on the part of the authorities.

Yet another case of the growing sanctimonious puritanism which is becoming so popular right now? It is replacing common-sense and in this case costing real money.

Let’s hope the voters remember.

LATEST: MINISTER DEFENDS POLICE ACTION

“German nudist clubs shed more people than clothes” says president of DFK

At the nudist camp Germany has long been known as one of Europe’s – if not the world’s – most nudist friendly country, with social nudity practised almost anywhere, including urban public parks, riverbanks and lakesides.

Now, however, times are changing.

According to Kurt Fischer, president of the German Federation of Naturist Clubs (DFK), total membership for Germany’s 145 clubs have fallen two percent a year to about 40,000.  The largest contingent is currently in the 50 to 60-year-old bracket, and members under 25 have become rare.

Fischer blames radical changes in people’s working lives, with irregular hours making it hard to commit to FKK clubs and associations.

“Twenty years ago almost everyone had the weekends off,” he said. “Now in almost all jobs, we must be flexible and free time is dictated by the employer.

“This is a problem for organisations that have their own structures and that want to bring people together for an event at a specific time.”

He also cites the changing demographics of the country, pointing out that young people with immigrant backgrounds and from Muslim cultures, where the unclothed body remains taboo, have proven impervious to the lure of nudism.

No need to worry about the future of nudism in Germany just yet though.

Between eight and 12 million Germans still engage in nudism in the summer months said French geographer Emmanuel Jaurand, author of a comparative study on the nudism in Germany.

In his study, Jaurand concluded that Germany remains committed to “urban public nudity that is uninhibited and quiet” and “detached from any sexual connotation”.

So that’s alright then.

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?

Nudist tour operator stripped of £2m funding

The future of Travelzest, the company behind the British based nudist vacation operator Peng Travel is in doubt this week after the company failed to secure £2m pledged to it in a fundraising.

Despite the uncertainty, the company is continuing to send out flyers for its naturist winter vacation programme.

A source close to the company claims that two shareholders withdrew an offer to inject fresh funds into the company after they tried to change the terms of the deal at the last minute.

AIM-listed Travelzest thought it had raised £5.7m through the issue of new shares, funds it needs to meet lending agreements with its banks. It announced on Friday morning to the stock exchange that investors had approved the share placing.

However, after the market closed in the afternoon, the company said that investors accounting for £2m of the new funds had failed to meet the deadline for paying the money, and that it would need to find an alternative means of securing the funds.

It has asked for its shares to be suspended, “pending clarification of its financial position”.

We’ve been a great supporter of Peng in the past, and we continue to wish them a great future, but if you’re planning to book with Peng this winter we would advise that you find out exactly what the position is before you commit yourself.
