Naturist cleaners??

Naturist cleaners

Yes, you saw that right. And this is not about ordinary naturists cleaning their own homes in the most comfortable fashion.

As I was looking over the information that Google Alerts sent me the other day, concerning all kinds of things about naturism, there was a reference to ‘naturist cleaners’.

The headline:

Women in Croydon wanted to clean homes while naked

I found this odd. Many people may think this is a cool idea but not me. I see things differently. I went to read the article (you can see it for yourself at http://www.croydonadvertiser.co.uk/women-in-croydon-wanted-to-clean-houses-naked).

This proved me right.

Women apparently can make £45 per hour for cleaning. That is a lot of money. They have to do it in the nude though. Is it surprising that most of the clients of the company offering this are male?

Some clients prefer to stay dressed and just watch our cleaner or just want a nude cleaner to have a different experience

Yep. That is typical for naturists, right, wanting to watch a nude cleaner.

The lady running the company offering this service states that most clients are naturists themselves, which is a good thing. Still I can’t shake the feeling that this isn’t the way this works.

What are your thoughts?

Best effort, involuntary stereotyping

Stereotyping

I keep seeing it and it keeps surprising me. Stereotyping. It is (actually it was) very visible on my Twitter feed. All those people posting images of nudists and naturists. Not themselves, of course.

They post pictures of young, fit, happy people in the nude.

Mainly young women.

Wrong

You may wonder why I think this is wrong. Let me explain.

When I go to a nude beach, a naturist resort or a clothes-free sauna, I see all kinds of people. The thing is: least of all I see the young, fit, nude women that are splattered all over the naturism promotion feeds.

Instead I see the kind of people here on the right. The older, balding, not so slim, not so fit one. The people with wrinkles, who have been nudists and/or naturists all their life without giving a damn about how they look. They have the right attitude. Don’t make everyone think that your body becomes young, fit and pretty once you pretend to be a nudist or naturist. That’s not going to happen, not now and not in thirty years when you’re even older and wrinklier (unless someone comes up with a happy pill that does it for you).

Be a real naturist. Go naked because it makes you feel good. That is the happy pill we have now, and it works on another side of you. On the inside. The mind. Having the right mindset will make your mind, your spirit young and fit. And you have the benefit of real freedom, inside and out.

Twitter feed

As I said, my twitter feed had a lot of those images.

It doesn’t anymore. I have stopped following those picture-cannons which spread false images and ideas about our life style. I don’t agree with them so I don’t need to see them.

I’m convinced they feel they’re doing naturism a favour, otherwise they wouldn’t be putting so much effort into all this. I’m also convinced they’re missing the point and attracting the wrong audience.

Digambara. The naked monks.

Naked monks.

Yeah, that got your attention, didn’t it? Naked monks. Yes, they exist. In India.

Acharya Vidyasagar, a prominent Digambara monk of modern India

I was very surprised to find information about monks who are not allowed to wear clothes. Clothes are seen as embellishment and these monks don’t embellish themselves.

This sounds all sweet and wonderful, but there is more to being a nude monk than not wearing clothes. If you love your big screen TV, kiss that goodbye when you become a Digambara monk.

There is a Jain text that says:

Salutation to the Ascetic (Sādhu) abound in faith and knowledge, who incessantly practises pure conduct that surely leads to liberation.

— Dravyasaṃgraha
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Attitude and… weather.

It may be obvious that you need the right kind of attitude to become such a monk as you have to give up all worldly goods. You need to beg for food and you can own only the fewest bits of man-made utensils. A Digambara monk is allowed to keep only a feather whisk, a water gourd and scripture with him.

Also make sure you live in the right region. When you’re in an area where it gets cold it’s smart to choose another occupation. One that has heating and/or clothes.

Happy Newd Year!

Naked around the house. (And inside it.)

Naked around the house.

I’m curious how many naturists and nudists (let’s assume there is a difference between them) are able to be naked in and around their house.

The problem that many face of course is that their house is open to the view from the street. As far as I know there is no country where the law says you can be naked inside your own property, regardless if people from outside can see you or not.

Backyards.

Nudists with fenced-off backyards often are in luck. They can usually be naked as much as they want and do all kinds of chores there without the bother of clothes. Things like painting, like the lady on the left does here, will be easier too. Splatters of paint are removed from skin much easier than from clothes.

There might be a problem with neighbours though. Not everyone can lift their mind over such things as a naked body.

Apartments.

This is where I come in. Literally, because I live in an apartment.

My place is on the fifth floor , there are frosted glass panels between the balconies so neighbours don’t see me, and there is no building opposite where I live. I can be naked as much as I want, and sit outside like that whenever the weather allows.

I’m lucky like that.

The house in the street.

Okay. Nudists who live in such houses have a big disadvantage if they don’t have glass curtains or something like it. You’ll be seen from the street, and if you have a garden you’ll be seen by the neighbours. Do you have a house like this? How do you deal with it?

The house on the prairie.

This.

This would take away so many problems…

This is how it can be. Enjoy your holidays, dear friends.

A nudist wiki.

Hey you all.

You have missed a post last week. That’s because I didn’t post a post here last week. It was kind of rough as on Tuesday I was told my contract wasn’t renewed. So much for that job.

Now to the topic at hand. Wiki. You all have heard of it, right? Wikipedia? On a hunch I jumped onto the Internet (don’t worry, not much got damaged and I hid the evidence) and I discovered there is no proper nudism wiki! Did I miss it in my search?

If you know of one, do let me know.

Wikis are great ways to convey information in a clear and easy to understand way, like this Wikihow page on becoming a nudist. It would be very simple to set up a wiki on this site.  Would I have some support in setting this up and especially maintaining it from the people who read this post? Do you think it would be something valuable to have, to point people to, to spread the reality about our preferred lifestyle?

Oh wow, I had no idea you’d be running up for this opportunity! 😀
