Clothes. I wear them. A lot lately.

Clothes. Really. I wear them.

Naked woman in the rainIf you want to stop reading now, do so.

The rest of this article might shock you if you’re a hard core naturist that never wears clothes. (And if you manage to do that, do let me know how you pull that off!)

Weather of late has been quite sad. Rain, drizzle, unpleasant temperatures.

Not the summer most of us dream of unless you’re a needy plant. In which case you’re always naked.

So what to do when the weather’s not nice?

There are a few smart options.

  1. Go on vacation to a warm place where you can be naked all the time.
    Nice plan if you have the time and the money for it. I’m sure at least 12% of the people reading this recognise that one. đŸ˜‰
  2. Turn up the heating of the house and be naked.
    Would work, but I don’t do that. I try to be environmentally conscious and not doing the heat up thing has a place in that mindset.
  3. Put on some clothes.
    Shocking, I admit, but it’s a tactic people have used for centuries. One that works.
  4. Move to a place where it’s warm all the time.
    Now that’s smart!

But… but… you’re a naturist!

In the woodsTrue. I see myself as a naturist but one that’s not made of penguin or polar bear.

I’m a human who doesn’t like the cold. Interestingly I’ve gotten more cold-sensitive over the last few years; I’m sure that age has to do something with it. I’m approaching 60. Are there any people in their second youth who have noticed something similar?

Anyway, this is how I deal with poor weather conditions. At first I wasn’t showing the real naturist but then something made me grin. There are those naturists who claim that a true naturist doesn’t have tan lines. Well, trust me – I don’t have any!

Things will get better. Sooner or later.

It is only a matter of time for things to get better again. Either on a vacation, a summery end dash or something I can’t even imagine now. If nothing else happens there’s always the shower or the sauna.

This is how I handle piss poor weather. If you have other ways, perhaps even better ways, I’d love to hear them. We’re all in this weather together so we can learn from each other.

Stay happy, stay as naked as you can.

Nudity and a lack of summer

The weather here in Europe has been appalling for naturists and nudists alike when it comes to going outside. Cold, wind, rain, all those goodies – and a lack of sunshine.

Scenes like this one have been happening here more than once over the past month. I’m probably not the only one who starts to feel vitamin D deprived, and that’s horrible. It’s sad when we have to go without our favourite source of that vitamin.

vitamin DOf course you know that one.

The sun. What else?

There are alternatives, like fish, wheat bread and such but…

nothing beats soaking up the sun with all of our skin. Unfortunately I have no good cure for a lack of sun. If however you are looking for good ways to be naked while the sun is not around…

You could meet up with naturist friends either at your home or in theirs. Get together naked, have a good time. Talk, watch a good film, interact – and leave your smartphone in the pocket of your clothes!

naked in the saunaYou might consider a visit to a sauna. Saunas are great places to be naked, at least over here in Europe.

In a sauna you can meet other naked-minded people there; perhaps even make new friends.

A great way to be nude as well is of course in your home. You may need some precautions because there are always the very curious ones who think it’s their obligation to stare into your living room and point out what’s wrong. And you bet that those are the same people who think being naked, even inside your own four walls, is wrong!

curtainsGlass curtains can be your friend here. It blocks the view from outside quite effectively and if someone is still able to peek inside an accuse you of being an exhibitionist it won’t be hard to convince others that this person is a peeping Tom. Or Tina.

 

If you don’t like having those curtains up all the time there are ways of clipping them up if you want your privacy and easily taking them down as soon as you’ve had enough of being naked. (Inserting time to laugh here.)

I hope that people who are deprived of their nudity can find some solace and tips in this post. If you can, take a vacation to a warm and sunny place where nudity is okay. This however isn’t within everyone’s reach, and for those I tried to come up with some viable and not too expensive alternatives.

Be happy, everyone. And be naked.
