Be Careful Picking Your Nudist Resort
UNLESS YOUR NAME IS BOB, CAROL, TED OR ALICE
Quite a few imagine nudist resorts as fronts for a dismal swinging singles experiences, such as featured in early Eighties porn videos. There's real evidence to support this view in forum rants and numerous sites that actually celebrate this sort of recreation.
One could argue that Hedonism II is such a place. It isn't, but it is friskier than other couple's or singles resorts. I guess the good spin is that there are resorts for every taste and persuasion, and we're free to pick and choose our personal flavor, so to speak.
Family Nudism Swim Nights, European Style
If you're a business person whose territory includes Germany, Austria or parts of Switzerland, we know you know what we know. Yes, those business hotel check-in counter brochures for the local sauna or community pool do feature naked people, and they earnestly invite you to pay a visit (which you likely did). Incredible, isn't it?
It's a situation better to illustrate with pictures than attempt to describe with words, but yes, you can, you business pros, taxi over to the local community spa, pay your ten Euros, walk into the coed locker room to disrobe, walk naked to the community shower to rinse, and then enter an Olympic-sized facility full of naked teens, moms and stout men and enjoy the rejuvenating qualities of steam, dry-heat saunas and amazing whirlpools full of nymph-like creatures.
In other words, if your company isn't getting its share of the European market, consider it your duty to get the ball rolling (the downtown Cologne facility is the best we've found).
Family Nudism, Lake Cabin Style
Put out a forum query such as, "Remember when you were young, and your family rented those summer lake cottages, and how you used to skinny dip?" and you'll find a lot of memories are juggled, and boxes of Polaroid stills are suddenly recovered from the attic with naked pictures of your family, including that hippy aunt from Vermont with a strict "no-shave" policy regarding personal hygiene.
It is these photographs that capture best the innocence of youthful nudity and give it its sheen of wholesome goodness. That doesn't mean they don't possess ethereal qualities that can spark creative mischief in our private ruminations (see: "A French Perspective On Family Nudity"). Au contraire, one could say. It's these evocations of nudism that are among the best.
Backyard Nudist Opportunists
We should pause here and give a hand to spontaneity. It's to blame for lot's impromptu summer "nudism" of the back yard variety, that sudden urge to take your suit off and lie naked in the sun. Teens do, moms do it, you've probably done it. In the age of iPhone, there's plenty of evidence that it's a popular past time. It's also a bit risky if you're wearing ear buds. Candid Nudists & Nudity
