Free Range Naturism / Casual Hotel Nudity on TV.
« on: July 25, 2019, 12:20:59 AM »
I usually don't watch a TV show called Hotel Impossible.  Its about some guy who goes to independent hotels having management troubles, and helps the owner redecorate and upgrade management to improve their business. 

Today I saw Season 5, Episode 1.  It featured an 50 room place called "Streamline Hotel" in Daytona Beach, Florida, near the auto race track.  Somewhere in the middle of the episode they got a big bank loan and planned to close for 30 days while they renovated.  The owner talked about taking care of residents who lived in the hotel while they renovated.  The TV film editor cut in a few seconds of a male resident standing naked in the hallway talking casually with some lady from maid service.  The maid's cleaning cart had been strategically placed to censor his parts, but he was clearly casually naked in the hotel hallway.  I had to back up the program and look again to be sure that's what I saw.

I didn't hear or see any mention of Clothing Optional or casual nudity anywhere else in the program. They just assumed that casual nudity wasn't worth talking about on the program, although it was shown.  Maybe its a trend toward more people being naked in hotels as part of the general hotel industry.  This show makes a big deal about upgrading the hotel industry. 

Anyway if you happen to see Hotel Impossible, Show S5 E1, watch for the naked man in the hallway.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (March 4, 2019) – The American Association for Nude Recreation is pleased to announce that Erich Schuttauf, JD has accepted the position of Executive Director. 
 
Having served in many capacities for the organization founded in 1931, Schuttauf  has walked the halls of the Tallahassee legislature and halls of Congress promoting the positive economic impact of nude recreation on the U.S. tourism economy, during his tenure he has also visited many state law makers advocating on behalf of nudist rights in advance of legislative sessions on bills, and worked with federal agencies such as National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management in support of nudity on appropriate public lands.
 
A member of AANR since 1991 (when AANR was still known as the American Sunbathing Association/ASA), he is also a longtime spokesperson on wholesome family-style nude recreation, having appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews, O’Reilly Factor, CNBC, ABC’s Good Morning America and been interviewed by such notable publications as the New York Times, Orlando Sentinel, Details Magazine, among many others.
 
“I see my role as AANR’s Executive Director as one to lead our members as the voice of advocacy on behalf of individuals and families to enjoy outdoor pursuits in the way God made them, whether it be at member Clubs or their own backyard. I’m eager to build on decades of AANR’s core values of wholesome nude recreation where appropriate,” notes Schuttauf. “I’m also committed to growing the diversity of our membership. Our largest growing demographic is African-American.  The demographic most loyal: Latin.  Those most willing to experience nude recreation: Millennials.  I want all – regardless of age or ethnicity -- to feel welcome as AANR members and members of our affiliated clubs, resorts and campgrounds.”

He still says "at member clubs or their own back yards."   That is not the same as advocating a universal right to control our own bodies.

Dr. Glenn Smith wrote, "We need to manage naturist environments differently, so that the experience of naturism as sometimes erotic is not stigmatised or criminalised, while those who are experiencing social nudity as asexual do not feel exploited, harassed or abused. How we address this dilemma should be the main focus of any discussion.

The idea that naturist environments potentially offer a unique space to explore the breadth of sexual feelings, and to experience these in a more balanced and real way, could make them very attractive to a younger generation. And breathe new life into naturism."

Clothing brands and retailers should pay a penny on every garment they sell to fund a £35m annual recycling scheme.

That's the view of MPs, who say "fast fashion" is a major contributor to greenhouse gases, water pollution, air pollution and over-use of water.

But, of course, the MP's solution to a problem is MORE TAXES rather than to allow and encourage people just to take off their filthy rags.

Free Range Naturism / Government Shut Down -- New Freedoms.

'I've Never Hiked Naked Before': The Government Shutdown Changed That
Elizabeth Whitman | January 18, 2019 | 6:00am

Brandon Hankins didn't plan on taking off all his clothes.

It just felt like the natural thing to do, on a day in early January at Arizona's Chiricahua National Monument, with the federal government shut down and no one to see or stop him.

Science demonstrates that Natural Sunshine is what reduces many health problems and results in longer lives.  Sun blocker prevents the health effects of sunshine.  And, taking artificial Vitamin D has no beneficial effects. 

For a long time science has known that people with low Vitamin D levels have higher death rates from a list of causes.   But a recent study with 25,000 subjects taking Vitamin D supplements had no beneficial effects.   Vitamin D may only be a "marker" or side issue for the beneficial effects of sunshine.

This article is specifically about Seattle, WA, USA.  The court decision and law cited applies  to the whole state of Washington, and is similar to Oregon and California.   Despite nudity being legal anywhere in my state, few nudists venture out beyond AANR resorts and a few limited "generally CO locations."    Over here on the eastern side of WA, you would almost think nude is illegal. 

It's legal to be naked (anywhere) in Seattle

Nudity was made legal here in the case of Seattle v. Johnson. Yes, really

Little known Seattle factoid: City law allows you to be nude anywhere, any time.

Not, however, if you flaunt it and make others uncomfortable. (Flashers, be warned.)

Despite this free range law, nudists stick to pockets of the city where others openly express their nudity.

General Naturism Discussion / Sweeden is better because they get naked.
« on: December 28, 2018, 03:36:23 PM »
I copied this link from Facebook.   Parts of it are insulting and bigoted but it is quite positive about getting naked.  Every naked helps.

General Naturism Discussion / Full Moons Rise over Brighton.
« on: December 24, 2018, 11:50:11 PM »
 THE heating was set to extra warm on the i360 pod as 33 naked passengers took a flight wearing nothing but tinsel and Christmas hats.

The event was organised by Brighton Naked Bike Ride, with participants leaving their bikes – and their clothes – behind them for this festive reunion.

Nick Sayers, Brighton Naked Bike Ride co-organiser, said: “I was thrilled that Brighton Naked Bike Ride were treated to a clothes-free flight on the city’s iconic British Airways i360 in June and we were proud to appear as the back-side of the Brighton and Hove Calendar.

“It was fantastic to be invited back in December for a special Christmas reunion.

General Naturism Discussion / UK London restrooms go gender neutral

Mayor of crime ridden London focuses on gender neutral toilets despite study showing it puts women at risk

London mayor Sadiq Khan has replaced female toilets and shower rooms at London’s City Hall with “gender neutral” facilities.

This has given rise to worries that the changes will be made across the city putting biological women at risk.

The changes have been made in the staff areas on the upper floors, according to sources inside the headquarters of the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Mayor of London offices.

BN members have done it again.   Flushed with the success of BN getting acceptance of public nudity in England and Wales, a BN member has negotiated similar freedom in Scotland.  They still won't just come out and say "Naked is fully legal" but they will say that sans sexual activity the police won't arrest people for being naked in public. 

Quote
The Chief Inspector had discussions with his counterpart in Command and Control and it was agreed that where a Naturist was using their garden, beaches or out walking naked callers would be advised that it is not illegal to be naked and no further action would be taken by the police. They will only investigate if there are indications of disturbed, disruptive or sexual behaviour. By disturbed they mean behaviour suggesting drug, alcohol or mental health issues. If there is no indication of any behavioural issues police will take no further action.
