Positive Scientific Study on Naturism

LABSN Editor’s Note: I found what at least reads like a scientific study on the positive effects of naturism on body image and self-esteem.  I’m going to reference this study whenever I need to convince someone one that naturism is good for you, but really it only verifies everything I’ve already have experienced as a naturist. What do you all think?





LABSN Editor’s Note: It seems I meant to post this more than a year ago, but just found it in my pending queu, so I’m posting it now. Then again I may have already posted this and during my attempt to do so, I may have opened another posting page and this one has just been sitting here. Hope you’re not as confused as I am. 😉


À quoi penses-tu? | Modele Vivant a Quebec

LABSN Editor’s Note: I’ve been following Rolland’s blog for some time and and find it so well presented I want to share it.
It is usually written in French and I have to run the text through Bing Translator, which I’m sure missing the nuances of the poetry. But even with the literal translation I get the sense of his passion.
Rolland also has wonderful art at the top of each post and always credits the artist.
I’ve included the Bing translation at the end.
Hope you enjoy this post.

À quoi penses-tu?   À quoi penses-tu? Pour que subitement, tu t’es tu? Devant moi, tu me racontas ta journée, Pendant que je prenais plaisir à te dessiner.   Ai-je dit un mot qu&rsq…

English translation by Bing:

A masterpiece directed by Noble Roro of France
What are you thinking?

What are you thinking?
So that suddenly, you were you?
In front of me, you tell me your day,
While I was taking pleasure in drawing you.

Did I say a word you shouldn’t?
Would I have crumpled your soul in your heart?
If that’s the case, forgive me my beautiful,
Because, thanks to you, my life has become a marvel.

That you have become my model over the days,
And over time in my eyes a lovely lady,
But during our torrid nights, you became my tender Muse,
To be honest with you and a little with me, all this in me amuses me.

Will! Since we have to keep going, let’s continue!
With a few strokes of pencils and towards you my only passion,
To make a true homage to the noblest of all femininity,
Your naked body, now, forever and I swear to you for eternity.

Navigating Gender – Not Just What the Naked Body Tells Us | A Canadian Naturist

LABSN Editor’s Note: The Canadian Naturist always has some wonderful words of wisdom. I thought this was especially poignant.

“Gender is an aspect of our individuality.”  These words from Thomas Moore got me thinking about gender and my own identity. When a person is nude, gender is an obviously physical thing as this ima…

Skinny dip: World record broken on County Wicklow beach

More than 2,500 women have stripped naked on a beach in the Republic of Ireland to break the world record for the largest skinny dip.

Magheramore Beach, just south of Wicklow Town, was the venue for the women-only event on Saturday morning.

The combined efforts of the 2,505 women broke the existing Guinness World Record, which had been set in 2015 when 786 people bared all on South Beach in Perth, Australia.

The event marked the sixth year of the annual Strip and Dip charity swim, which was founded by Deirdre Featherstone when she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

Humans (Like P!nk) Have Nipples And People Are Losing Their F*cking Minds About It

LABSN Editor’s Note: The reactions to Pink’s nipples are what we may expect from such a conservative society, but the author of this piece handles the comments with wit, sarcasm, and wisdom.

Stop trying to police women’s bodies and their clothes based on your own views of modesty and propriety. Seriously. STOP.
