Hot Weather: Partly from "The Secret Naturist Handbook."

When I opened up the next chapter, there was nothing in the folder! The title is “Hot Weather.” I suppose we could fill in the blank spaces on this topic. This is my Arizona kinda territory…So, off the top of my head, I’ll get the ball rolling.
There are basically two types of hot weather, dry and wet. Either way, TAKE PLENTY OF WATER!

My desert is dry. The temperatures can shoot up into highs of way plus 100F. Fortunately, they plunge each day after sundown 20 to 30 degrees and more, not picking up until mid- morning the next day. Hike in the morning before the heat, or a full moon hike in the desert is fabulous.

The wet regions have a less dramatic temperature variation, generally.

Clouds are a relief, like shade on a hot one. I like seeking shade in a riparian area, or forest.

I get accustomed to the heat. I get acclimated to around 102F for walking. Anything more gets too dangerous. This only works when I am fully naked, just shoes and a shady brimmed hat. Any amount of clothing, even a pair of underwear makes a considerable difference.

My skin gets accustomed to the intense sun; still, I’ll generally carry something to protect my shoulders, in case I find that I’ll stay out longer than planned.

I wouldn’t expect many people to be acclimated to this. Jumping into heat is dangerous. It does make it safer to walk outside nude. People just don’t come outside. Few even look out of their windows, particularly bedroom windows. There is little risk to getting a complaint, if no one is there to complain. I have had numerous people on a hot day comment that nude makes sense, when they have happened upon us.

The wet heat, like forests, humidity back east, or jungles can wear me down much quicker than dry heat. There is generally some water to dip into and cool off.  In the desert, we sometimes wet a cloth for around the neck, or a shirt. It works for a little while, but on a truly hot day, I’ll stay bare.

Anybody want to fill in on wet heat?

You'd probably get by on a typical nude beach. There is no real authority. I remember a guy who just got out of prison, who had a flame on his penis, that could grow. But it would depend on the ownership/management at a privately owned resort. You need to ask them individually, or wait for them to say something. No telling what the people around you would react like.

Then, there are some resorts that tolerate, or encourage swinger lifestyle, if you don't mind them.

Lola Bunny bent over! How would you know that it was her? In the short shorts, I presume? If you see her face, then on a thigh would the face be close to your...indeed very curious, Ellar.

 Some people have genital jewelry purely as a sexual fetish that gets seen. This sounds like a lot of "Depends."

General Naturism Discussion / tattoos - need advice
« Last post by ellar on January 08, 2022, 06:07:30 PM »
I have never tried naturism in a social setting, like a naturist reservation or a public nudist beach, but I would like to do so in the future. However, I have quite a number of tattoos on me, a small number of which are rather sexually explicit. One of them is the size of a palm (Lola bunny bent over), the other the size of a magazine cover ( a porn star pleasuring herself). Both of them are placed on my thighs, so they are covered by clothing, even during the summer. Now, I am not ashamed of them or anything, I got them done a way back and for my pleasure only, but I do know as much that social nudism is about being comfortable in your own skin and is not about being sexual. Also, it is supposed to be kid friendly according to my understanding. Given all this, would my tattoos cause me any trouble in a social nudist setting? Would I be asked to leave the venue because of them? Personally I do not consider them to be of bad taste as I have seen tattoos much more extreme than mine, but my sensibilities are not of others, so...

Makes sense. You read that? Then it is verified to me. I'd think it like clown paint and a real person.

Naturists seriously need local naturist organizations

Naturism in the U. S. is not doing well, especially in comparison to how it is in western European countries, such as France, Spain, Germany, England, and even Croatia. Much of the problem is due to outdated cultural attitudes towards nudity. These bad attitudes, however, are not being adequately countered by U. S. naturists and their organizations. Consequently, many if not most naturists feel they have to be secretive about their enjoyment of nudity. And that secrecy, in turn, prevents naturism from thriving as it should.

What follows is an examination of the problem – and what could be done to deal effectively with it.

Found this NaturistPlace Blog   I agree with its take declining naturist participation and on the need for local nudist groups.

I have accumulated many miles over the years. Eight World Naked Bike Rides on tarmac roads. Four holidays in Fuerteventura during which I rented a bike and mixed it with the surfers on rough lava and sand roads. A couple of rides on dirt roads on a sheep station in New Zealand. What must be hundreds of short rides in my local forestry plantation on earth tracks.

A wide selection of saddles, and not a trace of a problem or any sign of others suffering. I suspect that most of the WNBR participants do not indulge in naked cycling very often.

Their loss!

Somewhere along the way, I read that Groucho always painted his moustache on for the movies, and only grew one for real when he began hosting "You Bet Your Life" on TV.

I've never liked those thin stiff racing seats, with our without pants. They have been uncomfortable right from the start. Ive always found a larger padded seat. Springs, if I can get them. A suspension system works for comfort and back issues.

If I'm riding in the dirt, I'll spend lots of time standing up for the challenges of uneven trails, of terrain. I used to spend hours riding around, mastering trails and finding air. But not nude.

My sole nude bike excursion of any length was with painted on pants to avoid detection. It was an evening asphalt run along the river walk. For that, on a borrowed bike, I wrapped the seat in cloth. I sat the whole time. It was probably less than 20 miles round trip. I took an hour or two and not much stopping, if I did, I sat stopped on the bike. It was nearly 20 years ago, so I don't clearly remember the details.

I got no chapping. The smooth seats are not much different than opposing smooth thighs. Oiled thighs might be helpful with some seats. I didn't return bull legged, but may have felt slight rash the next day. I haven't been riding, but on occasion, the last thirty years or so.

So style of seat, how thick the thighs and duration, must be key factors for comfort.

I intend to get a bike for the river ride, etc. since I've become urban. I'll certainly get to figuring strategies for minimalist attire once that hobby kicks in. I've thought of Velcro wraps, G-strings in some of the more remote areas of the biking system andevening full moon rides in paint.You can river park ride it all over the valley, linking in every direction and what is rated as on of the most bike friendly cities in USA.

Can a WNBR person supply us with more details? None of those people seem to be concerned, with anything but paint on the seat. I have seen pics of paint rubbed off.

al my naked excursions are solo , i tend to go locally on spur of moment or when travelling and spot a likely looking spot....usually a small parking spot with a footpath or bridleway leading off .  wife isnt really into cycling or hiking.

i havnt done a lot of naked cycling but dont find it a problem , i guess the legs actually take a lot of the weight if youre actively pedalling.

 have always enjoyed fog, when it has dropped into my life. It is an unusual alien environmental transformation...ie. FUN.

I love the quiet, the sense of some kind on intimate solitude in a natural place with a sense of housing, roof and walls.

It feels like quite and experience, with a wow effect, out driving in it every ten or twenty years.

It is something different.
