It always strikes me as odd how
popular nudism has become in Spain, with a number of dedicated strictly
clothing-optional resorts dotting the Mediterranean coastline. In
particular, that they're for all-ages is astounding. A generation or two
ago teen girls couldn't leave the house without a chaperone. Now they
can cruise a nude beach with their gal-pals without wearing a stitch.
their nudist villages is quite like wandering any coastal Spanish
resort, except in the shops and food courts being nude is completely
acceptable. (In contrast, in most French nudism resorts the women tend
to cover their lower extremities when shopping or walking around.) In
the evenings clothing is generally worn, of course, for the restaurants
and clubs, which actually offers a nice contrast. Also, nudists, when
"dressed" for an evening out do tend to wear very stimulating
attire. There's nothing like very light clothing worn over deeply,
evenly tanned bodies to strike a mood. ("Nudist

"Honey, That's A Good Shot": If
you've been on a nudist beach lately you've noticed cameras are
everywhere, with couples being among the most avid users, particularly
the newbies. "I guess we can't believe we're actually 'doing it',
so we're gathering the evidence," said Nicole, during a recent Muir
Beach outing. Who will she show the pictures to? "Our
friends," she said, during a Nudist Bares picnic on this small
beach outside San Francisco.
Even Facebook seems to be
loosening-up their nudity standards, as more and more people are their
sharing their nude or topless beach experiences there. It's a badge of
honor for some, or a pre-emptive strike in other cases. "If you've
been on a nude beach, someone's photographed you. You may as well be the
first to publish your experiences," said Brett, an avid weekend
Letting One's Hair Down: The
body freedom spirit of a nudist beach creeps onto the balconies and into
the rooms of nudist resorts, and these images offer a nice contrast to
the usual brilliantly lit daytime scenes of a nudist resort.
"There's a shift of intimacy levels when the nudity moves from the
beach to the room, especially when vacationing with friends. Everyone is
looser on holiday, and sort of figure out they don't need to be on a
beach to enjoy communal nudity. Once you're comfortable being around
your husband's best friend totally nude, it really doesn't make a
difference if your lying on a beach or having cocktails on your

Not a resort for
the timidly minded, or sticklers for traditional nudism. It can frankly
be a little naughty, if you're in the mood.

Europe's nudist resorts are distinctly "westernized," in
contrast to the style practiced in Eastern Europe, where FKK principles
dominate and activities center around healthful events and competitions,
occasionally "pagan'" practices of one sort or another, body
painting, communal meals and wide variety of other entertainments,
creating a kind of tribal environment.
