There are so many ways we can choose to live our lives, times spent at school, seeking love, making money, beginning a family, and in the end we should be asking ourselves, ‘Have I made great choices?’ and ‘Has my life been an example to others?’ If we all make the SAME choices and do the SAME things, nothing changes! ~ The only way humanity evolves is when we “find” new, happier ways of living and perfect those! It really is a simple concept, and many instances of “new” (and nude), honest, healthy ways of caring do exist all around us! ~ Have an excellent day!
Make a positive example of this life!
I wanted to “Crop” sections of this image or even draw boxes on it to highlight a few curves and graceful details, but my LG tablet does not have the proper “Editing” App for that! The message I wanted to express was how even parts of exposed bodies are extremely attractive, to me, to many, and they should be to all. There is no part of the human body that isn’t an amazing miracle created by G-d or the universe, and respecting the sacred beauty of this all is showing respect to G-d or to all of creation for being permitted to witness it! We witness the miracle of living every day, and those persons doing “random violence” are the worst possible humans to ever live!
I simply want to say, “How day YOU treat this beautiful creation with such disregard!!!” to anyone disrespecting a person’s right to enjoy life freely! Peacefully. Without fear.
Humans need to stop being “shitty” to each other!
Meet the New Generation of British Nudists (Feb. ’14):
Naturism as a Way of Living has seen this photographer’s work with this group of younger people and it is good. The essence of social nudity is individuality, and yet those who do it thrive in small groups, revel in defining it as they see fit and simply enjoy it. Yes, there are rules of etiquette and behavior for social nudity that have been developed over decades, over generations, but these represent a foundation for anyone trying it, and the shape of the “next house” may be up to you!
Out of the many millions of people that have never skinny-dipped, posed for an art class or photographer and only go without clothing for baths and showers, there may be another one-tenth of one percent seeking something different, something better than what they know. Pioneers and social explorers have already forged another path, practiced new skills, and taken greater control over who tells them how to live, where to live and what living means.
Nudity is only as complicated as anyone makes it.
Nudity can be as beautiful as you allow it to be.
Humanity should get a second chance at simply living.
Humanity needs another tool for equalizing things.
Humanity needs another way to grasp peace.
Words are not enough, treaties barely hold.
Demonstrations of unity, peace & freedom might.
Unity lasts when people are fully dedicated.
Peace lasts when it is an actual priority.
Freedom is a state of mind.
Freedom is a belief of the heart.
Freedom once achieved cannot be let go.
Freedom grows, freedom allows, freedom lets the individual be themselves and respect others as they do what supports all these things.
Still true. Just did not get NOTICED so much the first time.
The older nudist photographs teach us a great lesson about our own ability to interact peacefully with each other. As I look at them, what I see is normal people doing ordinary, everyday things. This is a part of the shift in mindsets which may happen to ANYONE as a result of viewing simple nudity! It is not aggressive, not dominating in any way, and there is an inherent tranquility expressed in many of these “classic” images. So, are the images a reflection of “those times”? What else was happening in the world at THE SAME TIME?
Maybe social peace movements, music festivals, anti-war protests, yes, but concurrently there were fuel shortages, growing concerns about animal testing and welfare, families living in American “slums” or ghettos AND politicians deciding where the next bombs would drop! Elsewhere in the world cruel dictators ruled, forced labor camps existed, and some people did not have much in the way of clothing to wear even though they wanted it.
There must be so many stories yet untold.
Some of the storytellers, those who lived through historic moments, well some of them are gone and some never knew of the Internet, social media or even cellphones; and yet we have these telling images.
Do you ever wonder if WE are living in moments people will talk about, write about, or see later? This is why tumblr exists; it is not about ONLY the images, it is about images given context. Be a context-giver, be a storyteller, because we are living it.
This image seems authentic to me. Consider: Both are playing tennis nude, or have just finished playing a game of tennis, and now they have stopped to pose for the camera. That is a specific act with intent. This image may very well have been taken for a nudist lifestyle magazine, or a website, but it “feels” wholly promotional of the activity pictured. The photograph was not taken covertly, secretively, or with an apparent intent (to me) that it would remain absolutely private and then someone decided after the fact to publish it openly. The couple is not wearing hats, do not have their faces obscured with sunglasses, and the scene is all inclusive of the surroundings; these are a few of the things that make it “good” in my opinion. It is accurately representative of two people doing an ordinary thing minus the clothing so many people believe is critically necessary.
@alinudist @socalyoungnaturist @lazing-naturalists hey guys, I am interested in buying a house and renting out the rooms to fellow nudists/naturists. If you were to do something like this, how would you go about finding the right people to participate in this with? Basically what I am trying to do is create a space where other people can feel at home and be themselves in environment that is welcoming and warm. I am trying to use this experience to help me understand the implications of what this could possibly mean for the future when I set the foundation of nudism in my household for my family to grow up with.
I think it will be necessary to identify a suitable rental property first, figure out all the expenses necessary to maintain it, and THEN find like-minded people to cohabitate with you. It will make all the difference if a really great house is going to cost each person $1,800 per month OR $2,500 per month; some may be ruled out as candidates because they cannot afford the dollar per square foot amount. Plus, six bedrooms, eight bedrooms, couples and singles welcome? It almost sounds like starting a nudist resort from scratch, except you will have all the “up front” and “recurring” costs figured out.
Good luck with this project!
Lets call her daughter of a close friend, since I never expect to have kids. I would want more details before making that call. How big a difference in reputations? If the school that would make her wear clothes is amazing, and the naked-friendly school is kind of bad, then I think her education comes first. Also, does she want to naked? Probably since she’s asking for this advise.
If the reputation’s not to bad, I would say go to the school where you can be naked. I think spending your teenage years naked would be very healthy, avoiding so much of the shame and insecurity that all us sadly clothed teens felt.
I like this kind of fantasy hypothetical you’ve asked. Everyone please feel free to send more like this.
