LABSN Editor Notes: What a refreshing viewpoint this new blog is. Well worth subscribing to.
How Abbey caves changed my life.
A year and a half ago a chance encounter in a cave changed my life forever. Some may say it was pure chance, or good fortune, that brought us together that summer’s day in New Zealand. Others may say it was fate, the gods or the universe. Personally, I like to believe it was meant to happen and we were fated to meet. But who really knows? One thing I am certain of is that no matter what made it happen, I am bloody glad it did!
The story starts back in 2016, in a salvation army second hand shop in Queenstown, N.Z. I’m with my friend, Trinity, an American from Bend, Oregon. We work together in an Italian restaurant in town. Both on working holiday visas, living the dream in N.Z, on extended holidays. Working dead end jobs only when we have to…

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: I thought this blog on Meandering Naturist expressed many of my thoughts on nudism and exhibitionism.
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.

Naturists or Exhibitionists?
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…

LABSN Editor’s Note: This is a well produced video on body acceptance.
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.
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.
Quebec City, Quebec
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.
Video produced by Erinn Kerr.

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.
LABSN Editor’s Note: Three very good writers are sharing their ideas about a writing genre they all produce. I thought I’d share one of the posts, leading you to their blog site.
LABSN Editor’s Note: Since Felicity Jones closed down the Young Naturists America blog last year, she has started a personal blog on “naturism, censorship, topfree equality, body image and other fun topics.” Here’s one of the first she posted and the follow-up interviews can be found on her blog.

LABSN Editor’s Note: Nick and Lins, a Belgian naturists couple, have a wonderful blog, Naked Wanderings, of their travels to naturists venues around the world. This post tackles some social media issues I’ve been thinking about also.
