Emma Nelson goes on vacation

No. She doesn’t. I do. I go on vacation, and I’m taking Emma Nelson with me. Of course that’s not her in person, but the third story I’m trying to keep going.

I think I made comments about how hard it is to write crime stories before. In case you missed those:

It’s bloody hard to write good crime stories!

Just so you know. The third story is slowly moving along, but that has to change.

That is where vacation comes in.

I’m off on a vacation at the end of this week. I’ll be out of the country and on the island of Fuerteventura, to be with a special person who is not Emma Nelson. Still, there will be time to write, because a day without writing is a day without writing.

My plan is to only work on the third Emma Nelson story while I’m there, to see how much of a kick in the naked butt I can give it. I’ll be gone for a week, which should give me ample time to get some text down on the typewriter. (In fact it’s a laptop, but I type on it to write, so that makes it a typewriter. 😉 )

There probably won’t be Sunday Noon Nudists and a sort of weekly post next week, unless something amazing happens, so you’re warned.

Have a great day, and keep it nude when you can.

The games people play

First off: I am not a ‘gamer’. I’ve tried to play video games a few times and they confuse me, annoy me, bore me and whatever me. I’ve found that some that look interesting are impossible for me to try because they depend on colour a lot. Being colour blind doesn’t make that a big pile of laughs, but I’ve lived without games for over 60 years. I’ll survive the next 60 without them as well.

What I’m wondering about, with the weather in the Northern hemisphere going south (insert laughter again), is two-fold.

Do naturists play games in the nude? And also, are there games that show actual nude characters (without going into the porn sector of things, obviously).

Nude gaming

This sort of answers my first question, and I’m not really surprised. Of course naturists will game naturist-style if they can. As far as video games and board games goes, there’s no limit to what can be done. Almost anything done dressed can be done even better in the nude.

Which gets me to part two of this post, and that’s where I will need your help, dear reader. (You are reading this naked, aren’t you? 😉 )

Are there naturist games? Games with naturists in them?

Nudity in games
“Gods of War”

It seems that there are plenty of games that show nudity. There are even people who think there is too much nudity in some games. Now, I doubt this is the kind of nudity I’m thinking of.

So that is why I ask you, here, in all honesty.

Do games with a naturist setting exist? Seriously, I don’t ask this for me. As I already said, I’m not into games. I’m a writer. But I bet there are lots of naturists, nudist, nakists and other -ists out there that would appreciate one or more video games that are in favour of their (our) lifestyle.

Researching this as I write this article, I suddenly came upon this site. PCGamer actually has an article about “Metal Gear for nudists: free action game Sabotage”. The article links to https://warpdoor.com/2019/10/10/sabotage/ from where there is another link to https://deepnight.itch.io/sabotage where you can play the (old fashioned looking, atari-style) game online!

It even has the old-fashioned game computer sounds.

Such fun, I hope this makes someone happy. And if you know of other nudist-friendly games, please share them in the comments, for others to enjoy!

Stay safe, stay naked!

Nudies down under

You may have guessed it. This post attempts to put the spotlight on naturism in Australia, and perhaps also New Zealand. Let’s see how far I can drag this out. 😉

Without a doubt, naturism is popular enough in Australia. There are plenty of Australian websites dedicated to naturism, there’s an Australian nudist podcast called The Naked Nerd, and on all the social media that allow nudity (i.e. Twitter and Mewe) you can find lots of naturists from down under as well.

As we all know, Australia has its special charms, in the form of creepy crawlies. Getting naked there requires some additional attention for those creatures, I would assume. Note that I’ve never been to Australia, so I have to rely on the tales of eye witnesses and other experience-experts.

Naturism in Australia is popular enough for its own magazine: TAN Magazine.

I’ve scanned their website for a bit and I found lots of interesting articles there, for instance about problems with naturism vs. your loved ones, something on art, naturist communities like the Townsville Naturist Community, and much more. I was actually pleasantly surprised about this magazine!

Australia also has a Naked Gardening Day:

“Grin and Bare It” isn’t just about that though, it’s an extensive series of videos, well made (I watched a few) and ‘safe’ enough to be hosted on Youtube. It’s worth having a look.

And, of course, Australia has its own Naturist Federation. This shouldn’t surprise anyone.

(Sorry, New Zealand. Maybe next time…)
