Throughout 2016 – and specifically from 2nd to 4th September – BN are inspiring people to strip off and take a skinny dip, to discover how being naked is good for you and to help change our country’s attitudes towards nudity and body image.
The Great British Skinny Dip has been organised to create an up-beat, health-focused, exciting event for anyone in the UK to take part in.
So what are you waiting for?
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 lastminute.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.”
