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.

Good Naked Morning: Sleeping Nude and Promoting Better Health

Good naked morning!

Hey friends, it’s a new morning! Hope y’all slept well last night…and nude, I hope. You know it’s funny, because so many people are so afraid of the human body they don’t realize the best way to sleep is when you’re wearing nothing at all.

I grew up in a family where my parents slept nude, and funny enough we kids wore pajamas to bed. And now, as I’ve gotten older, my parents still sleep nude (although my mom’s more modest about family members seeing each other nude) and now in my own place I sleep nude, which I have learned over the years is truly the best way to sleep. I’ve worn all from warm pajamas to hot gym shorts, and I used to sweat in bed a lot. As I started getting older, I started just wearing underwear to bed. For years growing up, I enjoyed the freedom of being naked, but I was always afraid to do so because of what people would think if they saw me in the nude. Finally, after working as an art model and finding enough confidence in myself to officially proclaim myself a nudist, I started sleeping nude all the time…and since I have never regretted it.

You know it’s funny, because every time on TV you see people sleeping in bed, whether it’s for a sleep-aid, or a bed being advertised on TV the couple is always depicted sleeping with clothes on. It’s like when you see ads for families riding in the car, the kids are always in the back seat, because of course they want to promote safety for children. Or fast food commercials for kids meals and the kids are nowadays always eating healthy apples or mandarins instead of fries, to promote better health. Well I know one reason why they always show people in beds with their clothes on, and it’s because of the common myth about society widely looking on nudity as something sexual and shouldn’t be shown on TV. Well, to me, I just feel like depicting people sleeping clothed in bed is a way of boosting that myth, showing that nudity is bad—isn’t that ironic? If people really want to promote better health, I feel they should promote sleeping naked instead of outlawing it. It’s just like the media makes you think bald eagles sound like red-tailed hawks, just to make their ads or movies look and/or sound more attractive.

Like we all know, the porn industry makes money off of the human body—and many have resorted to the fact that because so many see nudity as something sexual because of what the porn industry has done to make money, that all nudity should be bad and shameful, and it’s just not right. And online you read so many articles nowadays about the benefits of sleeping casually nude, and how it’s truly healthier.

Society has put a big lie on what life is really all about—and because of this people, worry about seeing casual nudity, “Oh am I going to be aroused?” “Oh, you’re naked!” “Whaaaat?” SERIOUSLY PEOPLE, THERE’S NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT! And the best way in my opinion to get comfortable with it is to practice simple nudity in your home, and the best way is to lose the clothes and sleep the way nature intended you.

The only thing wrong with nudity is the way people look at it—and because of that, the way people are taught by society to embrace it. Big wake-up call needs to be done, because nudity is not something bad or to be ashamed of, it’s a perfectly normal thing. And you do not need someone with a naïve mind telling you or showing you that sleeping nude is anything more than probably the healthiest way to sleep.

I’ve seen The Doctors talk about sleeping nude, videos from the Discovery Channel, they’ve talked about it on the Today Show on NBC, experts have shown sleeping nude is healthier than sleeping with clothes, so I think if people are going to take the time to advertise things having to do with sleep, show the healthier way of sleeping, with nothing on! And I think this display of simple, non-sexual nudity will help people see being naked really is the better way to live and nothing to fear.

Have a great day friends, and #NudeOn! I will talk to you soon.

hiking the Appalachian trail in Vermont… as nature intended

Active Naturists

naturist 0004 Appalachian trail, Vermont, USA

Although the US has a fame for being a prude country, there are some local exceptions, and Vermont is one of them: there is no state law against public nudity (though there is one against disrobing in public :D) And with all those green mountains around (just think of the state’s name etymology), it’s a perfect destination for naturists!

My long-time pen pal Ed organizes an  annual summer solstice naked hike in Vermont, and though I could never make it for this group hike itself, I went on the same route with Ed and another friend, Matt, just later in summer (mid-August).

naturist 0000 Appalachian trail, Vermont, USA

The route includes a part of the famous Appalachian trail, so you’d expect a few fellow hikers, but it’s great to have the law on your side – just make sure to leave your car naked, and you don’t need to hide!-)

Good Naked Morning: Think Positive and Don’t Judge!

Good naked morning, friends! I hope you’re enjoyin’ this wonderful Saturday morning, nude I hope!

Unfortunately it’s a rainy Saturday up here in my neck of the woods, and yeah it’s fall, a little too cold to be outside without a coat, but you know what friends? Let’s celebrate anyway, it’s another day to be alive and see what the new day has ahead of us. If you’ve ever heard of or seen the musical “Mame” (whether Angela Lansbury on Broadway or Lucille Ball on the big screen), take her advice, and declare a holiday because according to Mame, this very minute has history in it. It’s today! Plus fall means apple season, and I’m looking forward to going out for a hot apple dumpling and some ice cream later today.

Yeah, so a reason I’ve been away for some time is simply because I’ve been working almost every weekend—many of you may know, I work for a community cable TV station, and there’s constantly been things going on each of the last few weekends, plus a few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to also get some time to get out with one of my friends to go out hunting (even though we didn’t see anything, it was just too warm of a morning). So I really haven’t had much time to just relax on a Saturday morning and write to you.

I’ve also just been battling a headcold all week—last weekend I was filming a local high school volleyball tournament all day Saturday, and I think I caught it while I was going around the school all day. Tuesday I actually had to take the day off work just ‘cause I felt so lousy, and the medicine I was taking in addition to a headache and being to lazy to eat made me sick to my stomach. I did return to work the next day though, and now I’m starting to feel quite a bit better. But that Tuesday, I did spend much of the day resting in bed, in the nude! Being naked did help me cope with how sick I felt.

Friends, I remember seeing this old pic of our friend Marc from the UK, whom I interviewed earlier this year and shared his story, and thought I’d share ’cause there’s a wise piece of advice here we can relate to.


“Look at yourself first before judging others.” (Credit: @MarkNudy via Tumblr)

So this post reminded me of when I was checking my FB feed a couple weeks ago to learn the news that a kid I graduated with in high school had passed away. This kid had to be one of the geekiest kids in the school, I admit it, I used to tease him, and I wasn’t the most popular kid in school myself—since then, I’ve grown up a lot and am sorry for what I did, and I was shocked when I found out he’d passed away, nobody knew how this kid died. But yeah, just as he wasn’t perfect, neither was I and still am not to this day. I feel sorry for his grieving family, and wish the best for them.

I know, we’re all guilty of judging others before we judge ourselves—we’re all our worst hypocrites. But we constantly have to keep reminding ourselves we’re not perfect and we should not put others down for being different than ourselves. Naturism has been a great way of helping me remember that, and showing how everyone is uniquely beautiful and matters no matter what we look like or what we agree/disagree on. Like I said, I’m only human, and there are some things I don’t agree with, but I’m working on it, just as we all do every day.

Again, have a great day friends! Think positively, and remember, we’re all human and imperfect, make somebody smile today—even if they’re a lot different than you. Best to y’all, and #NudeOn!

Good Naked Morning: Swimming in the Buff and the Good Ol’ Days

Hey friends, good naked morning on this lovely Sunday. Yeah, normally I blog on a Saturday morning, but I was workin’ all day yesterday—almost passed out. For the beginning of fall, these past few days have felt like how July and August should have felt if only we didn’t have such a cold summer. We hadn’t really had a 90-degree day up here in my area of Northern Michigan until really this weekend, THE FIRST WEEKEND OF FALL! I was down filming a local festival, and yesterday I was filming their queens’ pageant which was a good 2 hours out in the scorching sun and I’m in my sweaty polo—my bottle of water I’d been drinking all morning gone, both of my cameras’ batteries were on the verge of dying…and so was I. The pageant started at 10, and didn’t get over ‘til about 12:30, and I felt so sorry for those girls who had to brave the heat changing behind the tarp curtain in the small bandshell. Luckily when it was all over, the concessions were nearby and I got some pizza for lunch and best of all…an ice cold bottle of water! I started feeling a lot better afterwards.

Right on the edge of the park there in Atlanta is the Thunder Bay River, and I was so tempted to jump in for a swim—especially after I got a notification from one of my [textile] friends from a Christian ministry I belong to, he was working all day but took a break to take a cool swim in the river. I was practically green with envy…I so wanted to do the same, but I couldn’t because I was still on the job! Plus I didn’t have my suit…wish I could’ve just swam nude, but knowing the surroundings and how professional I had to be, I JUST COULDN’T!

That makes me think of a couple recent articles I read about recently, about how guys in high school swimming classes used to swim in the nude. Oddly enough, though, the girls had to wear suits that covered almost their whole body—isn’t that ironic? And this one blog I read online from a guy in my home state of Michigan, no less, talks about how his school (back in the 70s) made guys swim in the nude—and this guy tells what sounds like a horror story for him going through the experience. And a lot of it came from his fear of getting a boner…and seeing other guys’ penises flopping around—why seriously has this world taught us that it’s so awful to be naked because somehow it’s got to be linked with sex?! And this kid ended up wimping out of the team. Nowadays, especially on hot days like we’ve had up here in the past couple days, I wish we had nude swimming! My goodness—my high school didn’t even have a swim team, that would be wonderful if only we could have nude swimming back now for public high schools, let alone just public pools and beaches.

I think if people were more exposed to it, they would come to accept that there’s really nothing sexual about simple nudity! Too many people worry about the sexual factor, and just being more exposed to it I think will help many accept it better. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m not perfect either—and even naturists like me have our insecurities, and I’m a Republican no less living in a rather conservative area of the state—and I know there are lots of people who still disagree, but I do feel if we truly try we can help people see how great nude swimming is again. We need to have better sex ed classes I feel in schools, which teach kids about that kind of stuff—and better stewards in the media who are more vigilant in what is broadcast on television. You see ED medications being advertised on mainstream TV, and to think in the past that was all kept for safe-harbor hours. And nowadays, it’s all about big companies trying to make that extra dollar in advertising. Not caring at all about the kids in the audiences who could possibly be watching.

It makes me think of the song “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Ol’ Days)” by The Judds, a classic 80s country song I remembered hearing a girl sing in a local festival pageant a couple months ago (I remembered hearing that song years ago in my dad’s old truck, good old days for me), and about how the woman in the song asks her grandfather about how peaceful the world was and how good and respectful people were back in the day. And don’t get me wrong—there’s been disagreements and crime for years, but why do we seriously have to make our actions go so far they hurt someone else? And nowadays, you see Lady Gaga and how skimpy-dressed she is sometimes, and I remember hearing on the radio when a mother called in voicing concern about her daughter wanting to be Lady Gaga for Halloween…or in one of my college composition classes, my professor talking about how his niece asked him what a disco stick was about after hearing it in one of her songs. Nothing personal towards LG, but I just feel too many kids are being exposed to overly risqué stuff that’s so sexually hyped, people have linked it all towards the naked body and that’s just made simple nudity so much more taboo, in my opinion. This shouldn’t have to happen if we teach our kids how harmless and wholesome simple nudity really is—and the more we all are more exposed to it, I feel the better off we’d be. No matter how liberal or conservative you are, I feel at least swimming naked should be more widely accepted.

I’d like to get your thoughts—what do you think about nude swimming in public schools back in the 70s? Did any of you have experiences with this?

Anyway friends, I hope y’all have a great rest of your weekend, and I will talk to ya soon. Best to y’all, and #NudeOn!

Good Naked Morning: Out of Our Boats

Good naked morning, friends!

Well it’s that time of the year again—the “Summer vacation” season is done, and all the kids are back in school, and the chilly air has come upon us here in Northern Michigan. Fall is just around the corner, and unfortunately a lot of our favorite nudist/naturist destinations are closing for the season. But don’t fret friends, I know next summer’s a long way off, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the colder weather, even if you do have to wear clothes. And you can still visit friends and spend time in the buff at home…just keep in mind, you might have to turn up your thermostat a bit, like me, but I’m still managing.

Matter of fact, since I’ve moved up here for work, I’ve really come to embrace each season in its own way—because there’s unique stuff that goes on each time of the year. So I can’t be nude for it all, especially not for work, but fall is exciting because one, it’s apple season—our local apple farm is back open and I’m actually thinking of getting some hot (and possibly hard some time in the future too from their tasting room) cider again today and one of their famous donuts! Plus it’s hunting season, and I’m looking forward to going back out with my pastor and her hubby and have some better luck out in the blind getting hopefully a buck this year. Plus they’ve been great helping me get out on the water on a couple of our many nearby lakes recently to do some fishing, even though I’ve just been catching little ones–I’d always wanted to get more involved with the outdoors, but I was always afraid to ask before (and didn’t know where to start)! Plus it’s fall festival weekend and I got to try kielbasa for the first time last night over at Posen’s Potato Festival, which is a festival up here every September all about celebrating a long-time legacy of local potato farmers and the area’s major Polish heritage. When I come back tomorrow, maybe I’ll try some polka dancing, despite not knowing much about polka music.

One thing I know—many of my friends are happy to see me get out of my boat, as many of my brothers and sisters from church say. I’ve truly been blessed to find a family that cares about me opening up to all I can experience—many of them know there are still certain foods I don’t like, and things I haven’t tried yet—and just as Jesus said, if you’re willing to follow him to get out of your boat and let go of the things that hold you back. I feel like I’ve slowly been doing just that, continuing every day to try new things and conquer my inner fears that hold me back. Well either way, it’s never too late to try something new—good grief, if I hadn’t been so shy, I could’ve asked one of the lovely ladies in the festival’s royal court for a dance, silly me…at least I tried kielbasa, that was a start, which I’d never tried before—that was a real treat.

Friends, that’s one expression many of us can relate to—many of us who are naturists now weren’t always naturists from the start. Some of us are, but some of us found naturism out of some kind of curiosity, like I did. Many of us grew up in more “modest” families like I did, who had hangups about themselves and were afraid to have anybody see them nude—which is odd, because for instance my mother never used to care when we were kids, but as she got older she became more self-conscious about herself. We all still have our hangups, even as naturists—we are only human. But we can all slowly come more and more out of our boat, conquering our fears and opening our minds to new things, as we help more of society get out of their boats and realize how simple nudity is not anything sexual or anything to be censored or ashamed of.

I mean, like I said I’m not perfect either—there are people I’m still afraid to tell that I’m a naturist, and it’s of course something I don’t talk about in the workplace. But I feel I’ve slowly broke the news to others and in the end I’ve felt much better, sometimes it’s hard to speak up because we’re afraid of what will happen in the end—I come from a family of people whom I feel worry way to much, and because of that I know I worry way more than I really should. But I feel within these past few years I’ve been an official nudist/naturist and just within this time I’ve been able to make a new life for myself as a young adult, I’ve slowly been coming out of my boat (my “comfort zone”) and opening myself up to all the world has to offer. And if we help fellow members of society get out of their boats and see how wonderful simple nudity is, we can all be a happier society. Tell a friend about naturism today, or at least find something new that opens you up to something new and make you a better person. And that happens to be one reason, it just shows, we naturists are happier, because we’ve come to find our simple nudity and imperfect bodies are OK and not as bad as society has made us think they should be.

Friends, have a great day, and hopefully nude if you can. Love y’all, and I’ll talk to ya later—till then, have fun and #NudeOn!

All together in the alltogether. Family nudism.

Happy Bare

aaBeing naked together as a family is an important way to share core body image values with your children.  From a very early age they will learn that their bodies are healthy and normal. The chance that they will acquire body image problems and issue in later life will be greatly reduced.  Teach your kids to love themselves and to love their bodies.  They’ll grow up to be happy, healthy, normal adults.

Good Naked Morning: Labor Day & Fighting the Good Fight

Good naked morning, friends!

I don’t know about you, but up here in my neck of the woods, it’s been a pretty chilly summer at times, and it’s hard to believe it’s finally coming to a close. Well it’s nothing we can control as human beings—only the good Lord above knows the right time for everything. But at least I’ll be getting back to my regular naturist destination, Spruce Hollow, this weekend for Labor Day tomorrow and Monday, which I’m excited about.

It’s just been a busy summer for me—with lots of events taking place around Northern Michigan here where I live, including numerous local summer festivals and county fairs, and within the next month, fall festivals. And it just hasn’t been easy being able to get out there in naturism as much as I wish I could have. Especially as my nearest club happens to be a good two-hour drive for me, but at least we can kick the summer out the right way, weather looks great in the high 70s and mostly sunny for Sunday (and hopefully the rain will hold off Monday ‘til evening, I’m prayin’).

All I can hope is that next summer can bring me better luck in the nudist world—one big thing is living where I do, it’s just very hard to find naturist friends who have a lot in common with me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve met lots of great nudists/naturists in person and over social media, but I just feel like it’s still hard to be me sometimes when I know I’m in a minority in so many things—it’s not easy to find fellow naturist friends who love the country and outdoor living, as well as being a Christian and having a more moderate or Conservative view on life. I mean, I know the majority of our society is concentrated around urban areas and most naturists may have more liberal views on things than myself, but I’m sure there are other nudists/naturists out there like myself—they’re just a lot more rare to find because there just aren’t as many of them.

Getting off the naturist subject a little bit, just living in rural America can be hard sometimes. I love it, don’t get me wrong, and it’s the main way I’ve known to live my entire life, but I just feel like we in rural America always get the short end of the stick. Pretty much almost every ad I see on national network TV, or a good 90-95% of the national news you see on TV, seems to target more the city or suburban type, and you next to never see advertising geared towards the small-town/country man. I mean I understand the majority of US population is concentrated as I said before around major cities, but we in small-town America are just as important and unfortunately not a lot of us get the opportunity to get our opinions heard—and it’s funny, because we the 15% or so of the country’s population but we make up about three quarters of the country in size. And I know how it’s like being overlooked, especially as I was bullied as a kid for being different. Well I just feel like that whole trend goes on in society, people don’t understand each other enough and because of that, there’s a big cultural divide.

And going back to being a naturist, I think that’s important—and that’s one reason I decided to speak up, because I know there are other naturists like me, we just don’t as often get our voices heard. I mean just because I’m not the most liberal person in the world and don’t participate in World Naked Bike Rides doesn’t mean I can’t be comfortable in my own skin and feel connected more to nature when I’m my true, simply naked self. And it isn’t easy when a lot of people who I do have stuff in common with don’t agree with my decision to be a naturist. All we can do is, like any minority, fight the good fight and keep our hopes up that some day our voices can be heard and we can be accepted just as we are.

Plus just work can get ya like it did me—living almost paycheck to paycheck, and working for a local cable station covering all these events around our region doesn’t leave me a lot of time to take the long trek just so I can socialize with fellow nudists/naturists, it just isn’t easy. But again, all we can do is think positively and know that even though summer may be ending, we can still find strides to connect with fellow naturists and there’s always next summer.

Friends, I hope you have fun this Labor Day weekend, and I hope you can kick out the summer with a bang, hopefully nude. ‘Til later, y’all have fun and #NudeOn!

Good Naked Morning: That Don’t Impress Me

Good naked morning friends!

Yeah, I know, it’s a Friday morning instead of my usual Saturday—well fact is, I’m goin’ out of town for the weekend today—after a rough day at work yesterday, I’m glad to finally have a day off, and I’m gonna go down to see my parents for their 30th anniversary…and yeah, I’m gonna be dressed the majority of the time. Well I am looking forward to seeing them, because one I’ve been real busy with work (hence why I haven’t had a Saturday morning blog post in a while), and I just haven’t seen my folks in a while.

OK, I was just literally watching The Today Show this morning, and during the Popstart segment, Sheinelle brings up country-pop artist Shania Twain’s 90s hit “That Don’t Impress Me Much” in which she mentions in the song “OK, so you’re Brad Pitt?…that don’t impress me much!” And it all has to do with a nude centerfold Pitt did for Playgirl magazine, and Shania remembered seeing it in the ladies’ “Playboy equivalent” mag and how much it didn’t impress her, as she says “we see people naked every day.” Well, I got two ways of looking on this issue.

First of all, I remember reading not that long ago in an online article about celebrity nudists, that Brad said in a CNN interview one that he’s “naked all the time at home”—which is great, it’s good to see there are celebrities who are nudists.

Other way I look on it, yeah Shania says, we see naked people all the time, and not all of us are as “handsome” or sexy looking as Pitt, but you know what? That’s OK, too. Because truly, no matter what you look like, man or woman, you are wonderful and you deserve to be happy in the skin you live in. A majority of society seems to dictate in advertising or everyday life what a perfect body is supposed to be—fit, hairless and sculpted, to supposedly feel happy with yourself. It’s not everyday people see somebody who might be overweight, or thin, or what some “high-life” a**holes would consider ugly, and because it’s something we don’t see everyday, it can be hard for some to accept their bodies as they are.

And worse, it’s things like magazines like Playboy (or Playgirl, for the ladies), the porn world, perverts and peer pressure that really hurt people’s looks on the body, and because of that there are so many people afraid to see them nude, especially for a non-sexual reason, and that just isn’t right. So you may have a little excess body hair on ya, you may be overweight, you may be thin like me, whatever breast size or genital size or whatever. God created us each very unique, and he did that for a reason. One thing, wouldn’t life be boring if we were all exactly the same?

The way I see it—every man and woman should be, as our friend Marc has said before, #HappyInUrOwnSkin. Being an art model was a great step for me to gain confidence in myself, in addition to the inner urge I just seemed to have when I was a kid to get naked (but was always afraid to back then, because of people’s reactions), and I really came to accept my body for what it is. So should you, you are awesome just the way you are, and you have every right to be happy in your naked skin just as anyone else should be—it’s you, you’re unique and you’re awesome! Let the real you shine through.

Friends, let’s think body positive—love the skin you’re in, and I hope y’all have a great weekend–naked if you can, or even if you’re dressed like I’m gonna be, still have a great weekend. Plus next weekend I’m looking forward to goin’ back to my regular nude club, Spruce Hollow, for Labor Day weekend! It’s all good. #NudeOn y’all, and I’ll talk to ya soon.

#YourNudeOnStory: Mike’s Story

Hey friends, we’re back with another special edition of #YourNudeOnStory. Today, we sit down and chat with Mike, a 70-year-old longtime naturist and fellow blogger from southeast England. A friend of our page for some time, let’s learn about Mike’s experience with the clothes-free way of life.

So I understand you’ve been a nudist for quite some time—how did it all start for you, what drew you into nudism/naturism in the first place?
I’m now 70 and consider I’ve been a nudist/naturist since I was about 17. I sort of stumbled into it, when I visited a stretch of beach called Formby nr. Liverpool and happened to see a couple strolling by the shore naked – that did it for me off came my trunks and I spent a blissful day paddling and sunning naked. It was the freedom from covering any of me and from that day I was hooked! I must admit I could see no reason why we should be constrained by clothes and I stated to buy HE magazine marveling at the bodies within, naked in all sorts of places. I continued to be naked outdoors whenever and wherever I could be and indoors – I threw out my P’J’s and slept naked and have done ever since.

What reactions did you get when people found you were a nudist?
I got married at 21 and my wife embraced the lifestyle we went to naturist beaches in this country and abroad and to resorts like Euronat in France and raised our 2 daughters without body shame, though they’ve gone and got families of their own and are too busy to bother about the naturist life! I did get in a spot of bother on 2 occasions when someone complained about my outdoor nudity and I got a visit from the Police but no prosecutions just a warning to be more careful!

Do you have any special place(s) you like to go where you can enjoy yourself and just be nude? What are some of your favorite things to do?
I love to go for nude walks in our lovely countryside and whilst I carry a cover-up I don’t rush to put it on if come across another walker and have only had a couple of negative reactions usually a cheery good day suffices! It is legal in England to be naked in public if there is no intention to alarm or distress. I mostly always am nude at home I find doing housework and cooking and decorating is best done naked. I dress for certain visitors quite a few are comfortable seeing me as I am.

How do you feel sharing your nudist/naturist way of life has made an impact on you and others you may know?
I think with the growth of Social Media it has been possible to see how many naturists there are all over the world and connect with them, and also to share the lifestyle with “textile” people and I think to show myself as I truly am, warts and scars and all should give some confidence to others who are thinking about naturism and maybe too shy to try!
Unfortunately my wife had a severe stroke some years ago and cannot talk walk and has to have soft foods so I now care for her and we cannot go out to beaches, etc., so Social media is my main contact with other naturists. The carers that come in to assist my wife’s personal care are quite ok with me being naked, they’ve seen it all before!

What advice would you give a non-nudist who’d seem willing to try nudism/naturism?
I would say to anyone thinking of trying it, just go naked at home for a full 24 hours, then find a nude beach or look for a naturist group, swim or club there are lots and give it a go! There is nothing better than being naked on a warm day better than sweating and totally natural!

Thanks for joining us, Mike—I truly admire your dedication to naturism. You can also check out Mike’s blog called Naturalian, give it a look. Friends, if you’re interested in sharing #YourNudeOnStory with us, be sure to DM @teamcloptzone on Twitter, I would love to talk with you about your experience as a naturist to share on our blog, as part of our mission of spreading the positive word about clean, wholesome nudism/naturism and body acceptance. The better we band together as fellow naturists, the stronger we can be about showing the world how natural and truly normal nudism/naturism really is, and in turn I feel it can become more accepted and more people will be willing to join the clothes-free way of life. So #NudeOn friends, together WE ARE #TeamClothingOptional.
