Half of Brits would dare to bare.

MORE than half of British holidaymakers would consider going on a nudist holiday, stripping off to sunbathe or visiting a naturist beach, according to a new report.

The survey from the lastNudist Brit Girlminute.com website revealed that more than a third of British men (35 per cent) said they would consider naked sunbathing this year and 14 per cent would go on a naturist holiday.

However, for women the corresponding figures were 17 per cent and six per cent.

Around eight per cent of those surveyed had been on a naturist holiday, but a third (33 per cent) of self-confessed nudists admitted to keeping it secret from friends, family and colleagues.

The most popular reason to bare all on the beach was to achieve an all-over tan (42 per cent), while 21 per cent did it to “reconnect with nature” and a fifth (20 per cent) wanted to “step out of their comfort zone”.

Andrew Welch, from British Naturism, the UK’s umbrella organisation for the pastime, said: “For those visiting a nudist beach for the first time, the best advice is to relax.

“Enjoy the sensation of the sun, breeze and sea on your whole body and realise that no-one is worried about how you look.”
