Men and Their Unconscious Fascination with Their Penis | A Canadian Naturist

LABSN Editor’s Note:Robert always has great insights into a variety of topics. I thought I’d share this one, but check out his blog site: A Canadian Naturistsand see “The world through a naturist’s lens.”

It’s slightly depressing out as far as weather is concerned and I have a cold adding a level of misery to the situation. Of course, this means that my approach to the world is tinged with a sense o…

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…

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.

How to make nudism available for everyone and everywhere

LABSN Editor’s Note: randomfactsgeekjga is passionate about making nudism/naturism a normal state of being and this article articulates his ideas well.

My Blog

nudism should be available for everyone everywhere

Nudism is one of my passions. I want it to be promoted, widespread and accepted. We should definitely promote nudism, and for many reasons. Nudism deserves to be promoted, widespread and accepted. We need to promote nudism in a positive way or else nudism will still be rejected by the prudish public, nudism will still be associated with sexual perversion and society will not practice nudism more often. We need more nudists in this world anyway.

I want to have nudism become available for everyone and everywhere in this world. That would sound awesome! Precisely, how can we make this happen? I present my ideas here, hopefully this can be something done and you can give me additional ideas in the comments if I have missed any.

Nudism should definitely be available for everyone and everywhere. Nudism does not discriminate against anyone. There are nudists everywhere in the world, from…

Here’s What Happened When A Woman Walked Around Topless In Montreal (PHOTOS)

LABSN Editor’s Note: This is from 2014, but I just found it and thought it was interesting. The writer, Lili Boisvert,  argues the right of women to go topless in public in a very logical, calm manner.

If we combine heterosexual women and homosexual men, there’s a large percentage of the population that is attracted to men’s, not women’s bodies.

So why is it OK for men to go topless, but not women? Does it mean that women’s and gay men’s desires are worth less than those of heterosexual men?
