A Naked Assessment

2018 was another great year for me personally as a naturist. Travel: I was able to visit new naturist locales in Spain and in Canada, accompanied by loved ones. Communities: I again ran in the 5K at Oaklake Trails and broke my previous record for book sales at their Fall Arts Festival, also accompanied by […]

Modeling the Naturist Park: Bare Oaks

A short time ago on a long road trip, my wife and younger daughter and I took an opportunity to pay a visit to Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park north of Toronto, Ontario. While enjoying Niagara Falls, we had the idea to visit Bare Oaks rather spontaneously. I’ve been a listener of The Naturist Living […]

Chapter 3 of The Nude Adventures of Doff de Chonez

CHAPTER III OF THE FORTHRIGHT NEGOTIATIONS UNDERTAKEN BY DOFF DE CHONEZ  AS TO THE MATTER OF HIS ROOM AND BOARD Given that Doff de Chonez was unaccustomed to strenuous exercise of the kind that includes the vigorous pedaling of a bicycle, and given that said exercise was doubled by the fact that Bare Glider’s tires […]

Looking Back and Looking Forward

Looking back on 2017 from a naturist point of view, it was a terrific year for me personally. Looking back at Hidden Beach (1) Accompanied by loved ones, I was able to make first-time visits to well-known nudist resorts in Quintana Roo and to a classic naturist park in Colorado.

Updates! Naturist Fiction and Naturism in Mexico

I haven’t posted here in a while, and in part this is because I’ve been helping launch a new site, naturistfiction.org. With my fellow naturist writers (and bloggers) Paul Walker and Robert Longpré, we’ve set up the site to showcase our books and naturist fiction in general, and also to provide original content. As of […]

Urban Naturism in Guadalajara, Mexico

At long last, naturism in Mexico is finally coming into its own. Even though the country has centuries-old traditions related to social nudity, only recently have nude temazcal (sweat bath) experiences become more popular. Even though AANR continues to debate, as recently as earlier this month at their national conference, which areas of Mexico belong in which […]

Upcoming Review on Clothesfree Riviera Maya

My two partners and I recently traveled along the Riviera Maya, staying in and visiting clothing-optional locales. I wrote a review that I was going to publish here, but I decided to see if N, quarterly magazine of The Naturist Society, would be interested in publishing it… and they are! Hopefully it will appear in […]

Bugs and Bares, part 8: To Less Cloth, and More Truth

Fifteen minutes later, Nate pulled up to the warehouse entry boom gate for the second time that day, and saw the same attendant who had been there earlier. Nate, however, had changed into his hotel grounds crew uniform.     “ID, please,” said the attendant, shining his flashlight into the Jeep.     Nate handed him his […]

Bugs and Bares, part 7: Chiggers!

    Ten minutes later, a pair of customers walked into Lola’s just a few minutes before closing. There were just a few shoppers lined up at the cash register, and no one else around except the cashier. Nate and Dr. A began to peruse the merchandise, looking at nothing in particular.     “Can you […]

Bugs and Bares, part 6: Agent Orange

     Lalo looked down at his toes, perhaps to hide a bit of a blush. Then he raised his head and began slowly. “I want to thank you, Miranda, for introducing me to naturism all those years ago.”     “Well I don’t know why,” she began. “You were a spectacularly poor naturist, weren’t you?”  […]
