No thank you ! (Above)
Time for another post…its number 50 !
This time I’m trying to deal with (or mention) those blogs/websites ,that claim to be all about naturism, but fall well short of the mark. While doing this hopefully I’ll try to separate naturism itself from the murky world of glamour, porn and other stuff that news channels report about almost daily.
The inspiration for this post came from a blog I came across today, which said it was all about naturism but on further inspection, seemed to me to be only a glorified photo album of young women, which the blogger had found via Google on the net. All these women were young in age and all of them hardly had an inch of fat anywhere. I messaged the writer, via the comments section “where are the men ? where are the bigger men and women and where are the couples ? As of yet, I’ve not unsurprisingly received a reply.
Later this morning, I noticed this time via twitter, a tweet which had a link to a nudist webpage. I clicked on to the page which at first glimpse, had photos of a normal kind of nudist lifestyle. Click on to the other pages and you get membership offers and the chance to access “my xxx rated photos”. I then recalled that in 2011 a Hampshire man and his partner who ran an international paedophile ring were jailed for child sex offences. The couple had set up a nudist forum website as a front for the sex abuse they later committed, six other men were also later convicted of sex offences. This is the sort problem that seems to blight the naturist movement these days, as it attempts veer away from this trash and the struggle with public opinion, to distance itself from the sexual image, that these sites portray. In the media it’s seen as weird to want to take your clothes off, whereas in practice its comfortable relaxing and rather nice. Being naked should be seen by society, governments, the judiciary and by the media as being something that benefits all people. Whether it be, in the form of health benefits or just an escape from the mental issues and stresses of modern life.
To me a naturist blog or website should be just that, all about the delights of being naked ! It should recount peoples own experiences of naturist lifestyle. Whether it is going to the beach, a club, for a naked walk, a nude boat trip or barbecue at home. If you want to post photos they really should mainly be your own, in other words put your “money where your mouth is “or in this case “your own body on display”. In this blog I try to do just that and only go to other images to break up the monotony of seeing the same ones or to illustrate something (as here) in this post. I have to admit to at times especially in the winter having little or nothing to post. If we lived in a sunnier and warmer climate I’d probably have no problem. Naturist blogs should include travel tips and advice like “take your insect repellent” not just show photos of naked young women. Naturists come in all shapes and sizes and that should be shown too. If naturism is to flourish like most want it too, it has to attract and nurture the image, that it’s good for all regardless of age, size, gender, colour and sexual preference. These sites should show that naturism is for everyone ,that it is a family lifestyle as well and that any families participating in naturism, shouldn’t be discriminated against for it. The time has come for people to realise that “Skin is In” and that it’s “Cool to be Naked “
