This is really the best way to hike if the weather’s good enough for it. You wouldn’t believe how quickly that is: hiking makes you warm. I hope for everyone to be able to do this at least once in your life.
Every serious nudist/naturist knows there are lots of things you can do naked. Not everything is ‘acceptable’ in our narrow-minded society, because simply walking down the street in the nude isn’t exactly something you see everywhere. Odd, because it’s one of the simplest things you can do in the nude.
It’s probably not the first thing you’d consider but it’s done. And done often. Just give your favourite search engine a swing with ‘naked skydiving’ and you might be surprised about the number of hits.
Of course you can wonder why people do this anyway, regardless of their state of dress. Most people assume there is nothing wrong with the airplane so why would one jump from it?
I can state that this is true. While I never had the opportunity to do this in the nude (alas, unfortunate, sad), I’ve done 2 tandem jumps and the thrill is beyond explanation.
A tandem jump is where you don’t learn actual skydiving but you’re hooked up to an experienced skydiver who does the real work. You do learn how to behave in the sky so the descent is safe.
Something to consider is that it’s cold. You start the jump from quite high and no matter how hot the weather is, it will be cold or at least chilly. I’d love to experience that, though. The rush of being so free, ‘floating’ in the air without any ropes attached, and seeing others fly around like that is amazing.
The need for speed?
Granted, you ‘float’ downwards at an insane speed. When you do a normal, controlled jump, you’ll go down with speeds around 180 km per hour (112 mph). I think that’s fast enough for a naked person. Trained skydivers who perform a ‘speed dive’ (limiting the air resistance as much as possible) can reach up to 320 km/hour (almost 200 mph).
Do you remember Felix Baumgartner?
In 2012 made the highest and fastest recorded skydive ever. He started at 39 km (24 miles) and during his drop he reached a speed of 1342 kph (834 mph). Hardly the location and speed to do naked, but I thought I’d let you know about this anyway. It might give you a challenge. 😀
Some people take on nude skydiving for a challenge. Here’s a video of a young man named James Young who accepted such a challenge to raise money for a good cause:
We all know twitter. We all love it. Many others love it too. There can be people who pretend to be naturists and follow all the naturists they can round up. Only… these yokels aren’t naturists. Not nudists either. They’re out to collect images of nude people.
Sometimes they are easily detectable because they assume everyone enjoys the same things they do. Their profile image will then relay something like this:
Not the kind of person I like to be followed by.
Other smart ones don’t show themselves. They simply keep themselves out of view. Still it can be very simple to detect them. If they have nearly no tweets to their name, yet follow an incredible amount of accounts, you can bet that this isn’t a serious naturist/nudist/clothes free person:
4454 accounts are followed by this non-communicating account. This is not a naturist. I checked.
There’s a pattern in which these folks follow others. First they go for the obvious: women who display themselves. Then they go for porn accounts. Then they go for naturists.
Not all follow this pattern but I clearly spotted the ‘waves’ of followings in distinct ‘areas’.
Share and eliminate.
For those on Twitter: you are probably aware of the blocked accounts list. Once you block an account it will appear on the blocked accounts list.
To get to that list, open the menu for your profile and go to ‘Settings and privacy’.
In there you’ll find an option called ‘Blocked accounts’.
That’s an important one. That’s where every account you’ve ever blocked is stored. The good thing is that you can export this list into a file.
If you share that file online, others can download it and import that list into their own blocked accounts list which saves them the trouble to hunt down each one on their own.
It’s easy to share such a list: just dump it into e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive or Onedrive, get the public / shareable link (each system has its own way) and tell the world where it is. People can then grab the file and import it into their own list.
Don’t be scared that any sensitive, personal information is shows in the blocked list. It’s simply a file with numbers. When I open it in Libre Office I see this:
As you see, nothing of my eating habits or preferred colours are in there.
I’ve just uploaded my most recent blocked list to my Google Drive.
In case you wonder about this image: it’s a snip of the banner from a group on MeWe. MeWe is a rather unknown social media platform totally unlike Facebook. Where Facebook collects and sells everything you put there, MeWe leaves your things where they belong: with you.
On there I’ve found a nudist/naturist/clothing optional group. It feels like a good group, one with the right attitude. Porn mongers and other unlikable characters are removed to keep it a safe and sound environment.
Being clear on do’s and don’ts.
To make things clear from the get go:
Naturist/Nudist pictures in a Naturist lifestyle setting is always welcome, feel free to post, but any pictures with the sole focus on sharing genital pictures will be removed.
Enjoy yourself otherwise.
Please partake, share information and ideas.
Its more fun when everyone pitch in from time to time.
Not everyone is comfortable with nudity, not everyone is comfortable with their own bodies. Believe in yourself. !!
If you’re here to talk to true Naturists, hopefully gain a better understanding of the lifestyle, then I welcome you to this page.
Whatever your sexual orientation, no discrimination will be allowed.
Please note: Any member who don’t treat the ladies (or men) with respect, or by sharing dick pics, making lewd remarks etc will be banned and blocked without a second warning.
This is the first warning.
It’s that simple. If anyone is looking for a good place to hang out with nudists without having to be careful with images like at Facebook, Google+ and lately also on Pinterest (I know because my account there got killed), this might be worth your investigating while.
Yes, you’ll need an account on MeWe. Just like everywhere online these days.
If you don’t like setting up yet another account I suggest you move away from the Internet. 😉
Will we see you there?
It won’t cost you much. Just some time to get your account set up and the (simple) application to the group. We don’t let anyone join just like that to warrant the safety inside as much as possible.
A few weeks ago I was out as I had to get some new clothes. At times even naturists/nudists need to go through that. I don’t know about you but I hate clothes shopping. These places are usually very busy and at the same time they go against how I feel about their merchandise. I usually don’t want to wear clothes. Another reason against them: the price. Good grief, it’s insane what you have to pay for even more simple things if you want them to be comfortable.
I don’t know how it’s where you live but even when the temperatures rise way above what’s necessary to be naked, I see people who dress like it’s wintertime. A while ago it was 22C (71.6F) and very sunny here. On the way home I wondered why I hadn’t driven most of the stretch in the nude. Outside the car I saw people in thick, black winter coats and one man actually wore a wool hat. In the sunshine. I thought to myself that he was overdoing it, without his mittens. What’s wrong with people these days, acting like that?
I know. I’ve said this before. Clothes are good to keep your body temperature at a certain level but they are at the same time very good at fooling your body to think it’s cold while it’s not. Because only parts of your skin are exposed to the real world and the rest of your body is nicely close to boiling inside your clothes, the difference is large and makes a body think it’s cold while it’s not.
Many of you probably discovered the odd awareness that you start feeling warmer as soon as you’ve taken off your clothes.
That’s exactly what happens then. Initially you can feel cold because the (close to) overheating parts of your skin as suddenly exposed to what seems to be cold air. After that has regulated itself there’s no longer any cold.
