Clothing Optional

The title pretty much says it all. A blog all about positively promoting nudism/naturism, body acceptance and social nudity, and showing how simply being nude is not porn, sexual or anything shameful.

3rd visit Hoek van Holland: The confrontation

So sorry to hear your story! Unfortunately there are lots of perverts out there, it’s sad.

Bare Thoughts

Last week, on the 25th of July, we went back to nude beach Hoek van Holland for the 3rd time. Hoping for a better experience then the visit before, we packed our towels and drove towards the beach.

Once we arrived the clock already reached 8pm. But since it was 30 degrees Celsius the complete day, it still didn’t cool down. Only the sun wouldn’t be up for much longer. We found a place in the middle of the beach and even though it was 8 in the evening there were still around 20 people present.

We decided to go for a swim while the sun was still there. At first we thought the water was colder then last time, but we quickly realized that wasn’t the case. The temperature on the beach was warmer then last time so the water felt colder but it wasn’t at all. Because it…

It’s not a Seattle nude beach, but that’s not stopping nudists — All Nudist

Naturist Holidays in Europe

Jason Rantz has an idea for the Madrona residents who are offended by the many sunbathers at Denny Blaine Park — an unnoficial Seattle nude beach. Admin: You’ll love this! People availing themselves of their LEGAL ability to be nude responsibly, and the LAW can’t touch them! Maybe someday, my friends, the rest of America […]

I don’t have a perfect body. Most of us don’t, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate who we truly are.

Summer may be winding down, but that won’t stop me from being the naturist I am.

Flevonatuur. My favorite naturist resort 

Bare Thoughts

I mentioned the name Flevonatuur several times in my blog. And this isn’t without a reason. For me, Flevonatuur is one of the 3 places I feel like home. The other 2 are my actual home and my truck, where I spent most of my days.

Let’s start from the beginning. Like I mentioned before, my first experience with naturism and social nudity was at Flevonatuur with a good friend. I also said she was like a second mom to me. What I didn’t say, was that she was married at the time I met her. The reason I didn’t told you guys before, is because her husband Mario, died several months later to cancer. Within 3 months he lost his battle to this horrible disease. Now Mario was like a second father to me. He didn’t only taught me how to be a truck driver, the first company I…

2nd visit Hoek van Holland… Public sex?!?

Bare Thoughts

Yesterday was the second time we got the chance to visit nude beach Hoek van Holland. And summer 2016 really started yesterday with temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius. We arrived at the beach around 6 pm and we knew, with this kind of temperatures, there would be way more people then last time. Excited as we were to take our clothes of, we took our stuff, locked the car and started walking.

When we entered the nude beach area, it was very clear that our expectations were a fact. There were around 30,40 people. Mainly men and couples, but from all ages and nationalities. We found a nice spot in the middle of the beach, close to the sea and got undressed. The sun was still pretty warm so after we had a smoke and some cherry cola we decided to go for a swim. We thought the water would…

Becoming a More Comfortable Home Nudist Day by Day

Hey friends,

I hope you are all having a good week so far. Well, my week is getting better–especially now that I am home from visiting my family, finally naked in the comfort of my own apartment. Especially after spending the last four days in at least boxer shorts all day.

Today, I actually watched “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” for the first time on TV, as my dad had the AMC network on. I was so surprised and amazed when I saw the scene in which Sherlock’s brother Mycroft Holmes (played by Stephen Fry) was at home completely naked. I gotta say, I have to applaud that! But it also made me think about how much I really wanted to be back home and naked.

Yes I know I have been officially a nudist for almost two years now, but now it’s really becoming more and more every day a normal thing for me to be naked on a normal basis when I am home. Now that I have interacted with so many nudists and seen how many of them see casual nudity as a normal thing around the home, I have become more comfortable not slipping on my bath robe when I wake up in the mornings and more comfortable just getting out of my clothes at the end of the day as the sun goes down.

Not to say that I don’t still have insecurities of my own, because I do. But nowadays, when I am home, it has taken time but now at home I just feel more comfortable when I am at home to just shed everything off once the day is done and I know my landlady is sure to not just show up at my door unexpectantly once the sun goes down. I truly enjoy not wearing a stitch of clothing in my home, and once the clothes come off in the evening, that’s the way it is (unless I must step outside for something, when I must slip something on, at least some shorts) until I step out of the shower the next morning to get dressed for work.

Just thought I’d share my thoughts, as I really felt like getting my opinion across tonight as I sit naked and relaxed in the comfort of my own home.

Hope y’all enjoy the rest of your week.


Visiting nude beach Twiske

Bare Thoughts

It was July 19 of this year when I loaded my truck for a company in Zaandam. This is a big city close to Amsterdam. I knew the unloading was for the next morning so I asked my girlfriend if she wanted to come over for a few hours.

Close to that town there is recreation lake called Twiske. It has a small nude beach aswell and since the weather was perfect, we decided to give it a look. After a short 20 minute drive we arrived at Twiske. It’s paid parking but in exchange for that you get one of the cleanest beaches I’ve ever seen. Once you enter Twiske, it’s still a 10 till 15 minute slow drive towards the nude beach because it’s all the way in the back.

We parked the car, took our towels and started walking towards a small island in the lake, only…
