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.

Asia for nudists: the best places to bare it all on holiday

ThaiWHILE Thailand is known for conservative values typical of any Asian country, nudist or “naturist” resorts where tourists can unabashedly bare all are thriving in the kingdom.
There are currently at least four such getaways – in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket – catered exclusively for the naturist, all opened by Danish Gregers Moller and his wife.
At these clothing-optional resorts, visitors are allowed and in fact, encouraged, to go in the buff within the compound, where they can mingle with other like-minded individuals on holiday.
According to Moller, a 8,000 sq ft campsite dedicated for the nudist colony will be opened by year-end at a location somewhere between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi, the South China Morning Post reported.

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.

Terror gang targets German nudists

Nudists were told they would be ‘exterminated’ after a gang of Muslims stormed into a German swimming pool yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’.
Bathers at a nudist beach in northwest Germany say they were insulted and threatened by a group of “Mediterranean-looking men,” one of whom reportedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar” at them.
Staff at the Freibad Xantener Südsee said they were forced to call the police after the men refused to stop abusing naked bathers at the resort, which is near the town of Wesel.
Eyewitnesses told the German newspaper Rheinische Post that the group “looked Mediterranean,” had beards, and wore their hair long.
They are alleged to have shouted “Islamic remarks” including “Allahu Akhbar,” according to another German newspaper, Junge Freiheit.

This is a worrying development as it’s the first time that nudists, already treated with suspicion and sometimes scorn by some sections of the population, have been directly targetted by extremists, if that was indeed who they were..
Now is not the time to panic. We must stay alert and look out for one another of course, but otherwise, to use an old British wartime slogan, we must “Keep calm and carry on”.

Nudist Resort Report – Cap d’Agde, France

When “The Cap” Fits. My love / hate relationship with the “nudist city” of Cap d’Agde

My partner and I have just returned from Cap d’Agde, the famous nudist resort in the glittering South of France. Not so much a nudist resort as a nudist city it is one of the largest of it’s type in the world, and during the day the nudist facilities are superb. It is a clean, friendly, innocent and happy place, which for once lives up to expectations. I could write pages about our stay in Cap d’Agde nudist resort and still not tell the whole story. But, space and time are limited, and you wouldn’t believe half of it anyway.

So I’ll just say that the journey was murderous, the weather was great, the accommodation was good, the facilities were brilliant, the beach was clean, the nudist resort was amazing and the entertainment – both official and unofficial – was, umm… entertaining. Although there were nearly 40000 people on the nudist resort, there was none of the loutish behaviour that spoils so many other resorts, and even at night-time when the “demi -monde” emerged for their nightly revels, the atmosphere was always relaxed. good-natured and friendly.

It is a good place for children, but after dark you may want to avoid some of the more outrageous venues, or you might have some embarrassing explanations to make! You see, when night falls, the place loses its innocence. Wholesome nudity is replaced by outrageous exhibitionism, the bars and cafés feature near explicit sex-shows, virtually anything goes, in public, and the site becomes a sort of Sodom on Viagra.

In short, Cap d’Agde after dark is just the sort of nudist resort that we as genuine nudists should disapprove of and never go near again.

And that, my friends, is a problem.

Because I loved it!

And will we be going back? You bet!
