LABSN Editor’s Note: Here’s a very reasonable response to a young lady’s question on skinny dipping.

How I got naked in front of strangers at the nation’s second-oldest nudist resort in Littleton — The Know

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.

Rewilding – Naturism as Therapy | A Canadian Naturist

LABSN Editor’s Note: I found this piece by Robert Longpré on his blog site, A Canadian Naturist, very enlightening so I wanted to share it.

Naturism is a therapy, nature’s therapy for the soul. There is no better way to simply experience the fullness of being alive in the world than to make oneself fully vulnerable to that world. It do…

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…

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…
