General Naturism Discussion / Re: Now it's bikes in Philadelphia!

Without seeing all the details It's difficult to know but it looks to me as though the nudity regulations were made by different sub-committees and ratified "on the nod" by the main council.

Free Range Naturism / Re: How was your month for Free Range Naturism?
« on: September 16, 2018, 07:05:36 PM »
Jbee's post reminded me that I felt a bit strange the first time I went to the Euronat baker's to get fresh croissants and rolls - I was the only nude amongst a couple of dozen fully clothed customers, but I was in the right - not them.


That looks like a great place to live or to visit.  Shame the natives don't take advantage of their own freedom.   Or were you meaning tourists from other places who don't go naked?
The two dozen were all holiday visitors who were (presumably) naked at other times.
Apparently they dress when they get out of bed so that they can undress again later in the day.
I stay totally naked 24/7 except that my wife likes me to dress for dinner in the restaurants so I wear espadrilles.

I wonder where I stand on all this - carefully laying the dinner table to the "correct" knife, fork, spoon and drinking glasses set-up and then dining totally naked.

Which Boston? Your profile doesn't give me a clue.

General Naturism Discussion / Re: French bike safety ad
« on: September 06, 2018, 06:36:35 PM »
I agree that banging your head is difficult - I have come of bicycles and motorcycles without touching my head or helmet.
I have also gone over bicycle handlebars twice - once when the front mudguard came loose and locked the front wheel and once when I found out about the French "priorité á droit" rule the hard way. In neither case was my head injured in any way.

I seem to remember that "risk compensation" was deemed responsible for an increase in accidents to Volvos when  they were the acknowledged only cars with a safety cage.

I may have posted this in another topic but early this year when I removed my trousers for an X-ray I was offered a gown which I refused as I couldn't see that an extra layer of cloth after needing to remove one would improve the image.
My explanation to the effect that I would be naked on the beach next week and they had seen it all before many times so why bother was accepted without a murmur.

I have health insurance that pays for helicopter rescue.

I, in common with the rest of us, sincerely hope that the helicopter bit is a complete waste of money.

I understand from posts about it on the BN forum by a Spielplatz resident that the differences were all sorted before the programme was made but, of course, they were features because they make good television.
Aparenty this is standard practice.

Good job they had wrist straps, John. At one venue I use they only have safety pins on the keys but it is only a small venue where everybody knows each other and nobody bothers with locking up their clothes.

Not climate - weather

You have reminded me of a statement by a Canadian that Britain has a wonderful climate but terrible weather while Canada has wonderful weather but a terrible climate.

Factory Farmed Naturism / Re: Fuerteventura = Hotel Gran Natura
« on: July 28, 2018, 10:34:58 PM »
If I recall correctly the property was semi-derelict before the Gran Hotel Natura took it over so I suspect the ground landlords decided that they could make more money by leasing it so somebody else - possibly in the textile market. However there are several other such semi-derelict properties at that end of the town and the beach at that point does not have any obvious appeal to textile holidaymakers so I suspect that their greed will be counterproductive.
There are not many textiles wanting direct access to a naturist beach and there seems to be plenty of naturists who are quite willing to dress in order to walk a couple of hundred yards to a beach so I suspect the operators of GHN will have moved on elsewhere.
I strongly suspect that the new "Petit Natura" on Gran Canaria is operated by them and will report back when I return from a week there in November.

That's what other people say about naked men, isn't it?

Most nudists say nudism is about "body acceptance."    That is the antithesis of rejecting your own natural body.
I tend to think nudism is more about total people acceptance so, while I would never shave my body or have piercings or tattoos, I fully accept other people's preferences even though I sometimes find them distasteful to look at.

Free Range Naturism / Re: Being seen while getting mail.
« on: June 11, 2018, 10:28:59 AM »
try walking or cycling down a road youve been driving down for years and think you know well..... youll see things that youve never noticed before.
That's exactly why I don't hire a car on my Fuerteventura holiday, but use the regular service buses to get around and when I am driving my wife never mentions anything interesting she sees until after we are past it just in case it distracts me from driving.
We were taking to the wife of a couple who do hire a car a little while back and she couldn't understand our attitude at all because she didn't drive.

one passing fuel oil lorry and 2 other trucks came by .... all of them whilst i was in the vicinity of the gate... no crashes so i guess they wernt looking over the hedge. ;)

Or, likely one or two of the drivers saw you and didn't care.  Being seen naked gives the lorry drivers an opportunity to accept that naked is normal.

From observation of the many vehicles passing when I am naked and theoretically visible, drivers are concentrating on the road and will not see you unless you are very conspicuous.
