This is a great edition of the Naturist Living Show Podcast, not just because I appear at the end from 46mins, but also because of the interview with Serge Pavlovic who talks about the successful campaign to legalise South Africa’s first legal nude beach!
I really think the worldwide Nudist/Naturist organisations should take notice of this victory, which not only got the beach approved but also managed to impose new local bylaws on the beach such as no photography allowed without explicit permission… a first for a nude beach I believe.
There is also a review by Felicity from YNA of the Free The Nipple Movie… oh and don’t forget to listen till the end to hear yours truly babbling on about Nudism in Australia ;)

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 28,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I was interviewed about nude hiking/bushwalking for this article which was published in the Body+Soul health magazine supplement in the Australian Sunday Telegraph in September 2014 and circulated nationwide, it was also mentioned on the CH10 night time talk show The Project
“THEY’RE hiking in the Aussie bush, swimming Sydney Harbour and doing the downward-facing dog in yoga studios. These intrepid fitness and adventure enthusiasts have joined a growing global trend of clothing-optional recreational pursuits. So what makes exercise in the nude so appealing? While supporters of the concept talk about feeling free and “at one with nature”, all of them stress that a less-dressed lifestyle has nothing to do with sex. “Being naked is emancipating,” Nigel Marsh, founder and organiser of the annual Sydney Skinny nude swimming event in Sydney Harbour, says. “It strips life back to its essentials, forces you to accept your real self and shake off the shackles modern society so often puts on us.” The Australian Naturist Federation agrees, saying: “Relaxing nude is more relaxing than being clothed, as you literally strip away all cares and pretensions of daily life.” READ MORE: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/fitness/charting-the-rise-of-nude-fitness/story-fnlsv23r-1227052992323
