A naturist’s view on the future

How many of you think of the future in terms of naturism? I’ve discovered I’m doing that quite a lot lately. And why is that?

According to this article on the British Naturism website, their membership is on the rise since a long time, and they ‘blame’ (haha) the heatwave of this past year for that. That, I say, is a good sign for the future of naturism.

Heatwaves are going to be more common than they were, so there will be more opportunity, temperature-wise, to undress and be the way we like, naturists, nudists alike.

And although this sounds wonderful and great for ‘us’, there is of course the other side of the coin: heatwaves. Also drought. Ice caps melting. All those things aren’t that great for ‘us’ or ‘the others’ (the textile based life forms)

I realise that being naked as much of the time as possible isn’t going to save the world, but buying fewer clothes (which in turn makes that fewer have to be made) is a good start. It’s scary to consider, time and again, how much crap gets tossed into the environment by the clothing industry, one of the holy cows of society.

I sincerely hope that the world at large will come to its senses and stop messing things up for humanity. And no, “Save the planet” isn’t needed. The planet will survive us all, unless someone can’t keep his hands off a specific red button.

Not what anyone is waiting for…

Not at all what we want. Hot is good as we can take off our clothes, but let’s agree there are limits to the kind of heat we all can take.

  1. I think about naturism to a certain extent as “We are born naked, so it’s natural to be naked.” More, though, I believe that we are alienated from nature, including the part of nature that’s under our clothes. Everybody’s undressing wouldn’t suddenly solve environmental problems – there are a lot of nudists without a clue about nature – but coming home to our bodies can be a beginning of coming home to Earth.

  2. One of my pet peeves is the yoga-clothing-industrial complex. How silly to wear clothing when doing yoga, which is about being in touch with your body. Clothing not only physically gets in the way of doing a pose, but it also keeps you from having complete sensory feedback about the pose.
