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.

Sharing my naturist lifestyle

Another great story!

Bare Thoughts

Santana is back with another story about her life. This time she’ll be talking about reactions from her loved ones, after they found out that she started the naturist lifestyle and the way that she shares that with the world. Enjoy reading her story, I found a nice quote online which describes her story pretty good.

As you all have seen already, Harmen and I take a lot of pictures of our naturist lifestyle. We share these photos with friends and family but with other naturists aswell. We do this to promote naturism and to show how nice it is to be a naturist.

Unfortunately this isn’t accepted by everyone. Especially by some of my friends and family. Because Harmen is naturist for a big part of his life, most people that are close to him don’t ask questions about why he does what he does. Me however, am new…

Chapter 3: Family values

Bare Thoughts

Wow, this was one amazing weekend. I arrived Saturday morning in holland with the ferry from Killingholme to Hoek van Holland after a beautiful trip to Wales. I’ve never been there before so it’s another country that I can get of my checklist. I unloaded some stuff at our company, hooked up another trailer and drove back home with the truck. This isn’t something I always do, but since I have to unload today in the north of the Netherlands it was the best thing to take the truck with me.

Because I was home around 1 pm and my ex had plans around 2 pm, she brought my daughter to my parents. So after having some breakfast together, we drove to my parents, who live 45 minutes away from me. As some of you already read on Twitter, my daughter walks since last week and it was amazing to…

Naturism & parenting

Some wise words here!

Bare Thoughts

As you all know, I didn’t grew up with naturism. But when I heard in December of 2014 that I was gonna be a father, it was very clear to me that naturism was gonna be a big part of how I was raising my daughter. When I look at young families on resorts like Flevonatuur, I notice a lot of differences between children growing up with naturism and children growing up without it. I’ll try to describe those differences and explain why I think it’s important that children, the future keepers of this planet, should get involved with naturism.

Now, I know that for a lot of people this will be a no-go subject. It’s not. If you read all my previous blogs or did some research about naturism in general, you’ll know that naturism doesn’t harm anyone. This goes for normal social nudity like on the nude beaches…

It’s All About the Comfort and the Freedom

Naturism & social media: It can work. 

Some good advice here!

Bare Thoughts

It was last year when I made my first naturism based profile on Twitter. In the beginning it was meant to follow other naturist accounts and make some new friends, but quickly after opening my webshop 2Bare2Wear it became something else. I started tweeting my products, even made flyers of every product and did all I could to get the name known. I changed my profile name from my personal name to 2Bare2Wear, made the outlook more ” professional ” and started posting selfies of me with the products. Nude photos were very rare at that time on my profile, so I guess you could say there has happened a lot this last year.

One of the biggest problems of ” online naturism “, is that you never completely know the intentions of the other people. Even when a profile looks completely trust worthy, they can still proof you otherwise…

Falling in love with a naturist…

Bare Thoughts

I asked my girlfriend Santana how it was for her, to fall in love with a naturist guy while she had never thought of doing naturism herself. Here is her story, in her own words. Uncut. Enjoy.

I met Harmen on a dating app called Badoo. We talked about everything, like things we like to do. In the app, there’s an option to have private photos. I asked Harmen if I could see them. He gave me access almost instantly. I opened the map and couldn’t believe my eyes. I saw Harmen…. Naked! ( most of these pics are used in my first blog: How naturism changed my life ) I didn’t expect these kind of photos and didn’t know how to react. Sure he mentioned a few times his love for naturism, but blue as I was, I wasn’t expecting those kind of photos on his Badoo profile.

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.
