Should Public Nudity Be Legalised?

A great article about UK and probably worldwide.

It seems very strange that it could be illegal for someone to exist in their natural state: naked. It is not true to say that public nudity is outright illegal in the UK. There are unofficial nude beaches in the UK (such as a small section in Brighton’s beach), so these are a safe haven for naturists (or nudists) who practise and advocate social nudity. Yet while many naturists appreciate the freedom of nude beaches, they are obviously exceptions to the rule – they are small pockets where you can wear no clothes without facing any harassment or threats of arrest from the police.

Where Are The Naturist Females?

However 2 years ago I presented myself in public to promote naturism/acceptance of nudity and tried to find other females to join me only to find that although there are plenty of naturist men in the public domain & on social media, the females are very hard to find.

The lack of women in naturism in conjunction with the lack of youth are the two biggest challenges for the future of our lifestyle.

Although I’ve been a naturist since my late teens, most of my naturist activities were either on naturist holidays or at home.  However 2 years ago I presented myself in public to promote naturism/acceptance of nudity and tried to find other females to join me only to find that although there are plenty of naturist men in the public domain & on social media, the females are very hard to find.  I have been asked the question “Why are there not more females into naturism in the UK?” quite a number of times, so I decided to give it some thought and write something to let you ponder over! So this post is about what I believe might be the reasons for this imbalance.

I do not claim to be an expert but being a female I feel I can shed some light on this.  There are some people who have deeper understanding…

The best reason to get naked in front of a thousand people!

“Look over there, another woman with only one boob!”

Screamed the sarong-clad stranger standing next to me.

I was puzzled and turned to her and asked, “What do you mean?” She pulled down her sarong and showed me her chest, on one side a breast, the other side a scar. I peered in the direction she had pointed, and another woman with a similar appearance was proudly walking out of the water.

I watched as two complete strangers joyfully connected with one another. No words were required, just one look of recognition, a smile and then an embrace. I was in tears, a blubbering mess. It was the purest form of human connection, kindness, courage and love and a story was unfolding before my very eyes.

In the course of one day my life has changed forever. I am a better human being;  I have experienced more joy than I’ll ever be able to express. I didn’t get married, I didn’t save someone’s life, nor did I rescue a small animal. I simply took my clothes off and swam in the ocean with more than a thousand strangers.

The All Important Towel

We’ve heard it said that a towel is the nudist’s “badge” and to some extent, we suppose that’s true. Nudist etiquette calls for us to carry a towel and to use it when sitting on the furniture as a courtesy and matter of hygiene.But for many the towel goes beyond that and is an expresion of their personality.  Some like theirs plush. Some always choose bright colors, while others prefer them to be subdued.

Some carry embroidered towels with monograms.  Others have nudist themed towels that they take to the club or beach with phrases like, “I love my allover tan,” or “Enjoy life naturally.” Some want their nudist park’s name and logo.

We’ ve seen those who launder and use the same “lucky” towel much like the Linus character from the Peanuts cartoon carried his blanket. Others have a minimalist approach and carry little more than a small hand towel as opposed to the extra long ones that could cover two chairs.

A few nudists have novelty towels with a pillow built in, or a zippered pouch for small change. Nudists cherish the towels they received as gifts from knowing family and friends.

Guys may reach for their towel when certain infrequent, but occasional “moments” occur.  Women use towels and pareo wraps to articulate their sense of fashion. And what naturist kid doesn’t appreciate when mom holds open a warm towel to embrace them with after they leave the pool and enter the chilly air?

The towel helps keep sand from getting in the uncomfortable places when we sit gazing out at the ocean.

So we owe our towels many thanks and we never appreciate them as much as when we open the car trunk and realize we forgot to pack one… or not enough.  That scene on the plane mid flight when mom realizes she left Kevin in the Home Alone movie seems to capture the spirit.

Towels… may our banners yet wave.
