Celebrating 15 Years of Naturism in the Amazon

Naturism in Brazil may not yet be a widely held philosophy, but it does at least have a well-established national federation with clubs and parks that have been around for decades, and new groups still forming. Most of these parks and groups are located in southeastern Brazil, where the majority of the population lives, and […]

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.

What is Naturist Fiction?

Reading and writing are becoming lost arts. More specifically, long-form reading and writing are falling away in favor of short-form.
