Best-of body-painting & shooting

LABSN Editor’s Note: I’m  just so impressed with this site. Here are a series of photographs of bodypainted people, but it’s done in such a unique way that the difference from a typical bodypainting makes it its own genre. Hope you like it as much as I do.

LABSN Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting article about a women’s first time experience at a nudist resort.

 

The Mountain Air Ranch bills itself as a family nudist resort. It was founded in 1935 for the purpose of Social Nudity, which means that you can be naked in a relatively public setting without infringing upon the privacy of others who don’t want to see your bits.
