On the joy of being naked
Nudity is permitted beyond this point.

Normality has been restored

Douglas Adams fans may have recognised the title of this post. Normality has been restored is from one of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books.

If you like fun, laughter and some good reading, I can recommend the books.

But... on to the topic itself. Normality.

Last week we were at a wellness centre again. It's a huge place, with lots of saunas, swimming pools, steam baths, you probably know what I'm talking about. The weather was great for it (a bit of sunshine and 19C / 66F), so lots of things to like.


Also lots of people to see. Naked people. People who have no body issues - at least as long as they're there, at the spa. Folks who think that naturists are what's portrayed on specific site, should go to a spa and have a look there. Folks who think that we're all supposed to be what the fashion and beauty industry says we should look like, should go there and see the many different bodies around.

That's normality.

No fussing around with bits of fabric to hide what we already know is there. This keeps amazing me. Those bits of shame-fabric are useless. Yes, shame-fabric. They're called bathing suits, but those things aren't suits (too small for that) and they don't help anyone when 'bathing'. Has anyone ever become a better 'bather' by wearing that stuff?

The answer, of course, is YES. Because the industry invents smaller, sleeker bathing suits for speed bathers at the olympic games. (Sidenote: looking for 'bathing' in a search engine shows mostly people in a bath or shower. Do they wear 'bathing suits' too? LOL!)

'Bathing suits' are not normal. Normality is not wearing such a thing at all. Normality is being naked the way that is healthy. Our naturist kind of normality. No need for the weird bits of shame-fabric that people are made to wear to hide their 'shame', or their 'naughty bits'.

For this, we like to go to a spa/wellness place. There, normality has been restored.
