BBC – Travel – Why Germans love getting naked in public

LABSN Editor’s Note: This is a short history of the nudist culture in Germany, which some say is the birthplace of today’s nudist movement.

“Free-body culture” promotes harmony with nature, and today some Germans sunbathe nude, strip down to play sports and even hike in the buff.

LABSN Editor’s Note: An interesting take on changing mores.

S

Someday in the near future, no later than 2040, you will go to the beach and see more than a few people not wearing a bathing suit, or anything else for that matter. People will be able to get thei…

Purists v partiers: the battle between two popular nudist resorts | Life and style | The Guardian

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this Guardian newspaper of London captured the contrast between the two camps of nudists.

One of Florida’s oldest and most staid communities, Lake Como, and nearby Caliente Club struggle with being misunderstood – and with each other

Why Germany′s nudist culture remains refreshing | Meet the Germans | DW | 06.06.2018

LABSN Editor’s Note: This article appeared on the DW.com/meetthegermans website in 2018. I thought it had some interesting information, especially about the history of FKK in Germany. By-the-way, DW.com has a wonderful English language station. There’s internatiional news, culture, and art programs.

From lakes to saunas and parks: Is Germany’s nudist culture, known as FKK, dying out or still making waves? It’s still strong enough to inspire a change of attitude for Berlin-based expats.

Naturism & Exhibitionism: Enemies or First Cousins?

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this blog on Meandering Naturist expressed many of my thoughts on nudism and exhibitionism.

 

Meandering Naturists

Some people dismiss streakers, naked protesters and even nudists and life models as ‘exhibitionists’ without fully appreciating that we are all, to a greater or lesser extent, motivated by exhibitionism. We learn to be that way in order to stay alive. A baby needs to be seen and to be noticed by its mother, and this need continues to operate in us throughout our lives… Every human being is motivated by this deep desire to be seen, to have attention paid to them, to be noticed and to be heard.

I keep trying to figure out how the social media thing coincides – in a meaningful way – with the naturist cause. I recently re-established my presence on Facebook and Instagram, (simply waiting for someone on a minimum wage salary to shut off my account for too much…

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…
