Don't assume anything in the Daily Mail or Mailonline is accurate. Here in the UK it's well known for its shameless prejudice and being economical with the truth. There may not be much truth in the story.


I don't know about the Daily Mail, but the same story is in a long list of French and other media.  Here's another link.

As far as I can tell it is a relatively simple incident where a group of clothed youths induld in offensive voyeuristic behaviour on a nudist beach so the nudists stated to sot=rt them out.
It was broken up by the French police who escorted the youths away.
Most of the stories seem to be written with some sort of spin varying from "disgusted of Tunbridge Wells" to not wanting to deter nudist tourists from visiting the area.

apart from anything else the daily wail has a problem with the english language ,  a lot of its reports seem to be written by teenage reporters whose first language doesnt apear to be english,  half the time it doesnt know the differrence between nude and topless.

It's not uncommon for headline writers to refer to "naked" or "nude" people and the story to reference "half naked", ie a man without his shirt on. Sometimes this is sloppy work, sometimes intentional misdirection, but most often the sub-editor's attempt to get a headline in a restricted column width (though that's not a valid excuse on a web page). In the old days of metal type and constrained column widths we never had the flexibility of today's 'journalists', consequently we had to learn our craft properly. I'm often ashamed of the quality of what passes for journalism today and feel glad to be long out of the business.

Want a swim? Come to London

Nobody harassed them except the private security guard at the big apartment complex.  That's good.  More naked people being seen around London the better.

Sort of like "The National Inquirer" here?

Take a rumor and some photo shopped images and create a story so far away from the truth that no one can make any claims against them. Yet the story is out there.

Those rags at the checkout in the stores amaze me.

Warm or cold rain? If warm does it make a difference?

I double posted this because it fits two topics

I saw this article today.   

Naturism booms in France as young eager to ditch clothes

Why are more and more people, especially the young, opting to get naked in France? Hattie Ditton finds out more.

    Brits urged to come to France and get naked (13 Apr 16)

The term "naturist" may conjure up the image of jolly elderly hikers walking bare-bottomed clutching hiking sticks - but it might be time to update the stereotype.
 
Indeed, over the past three years, the phenomenon has begun to attract a younger audience according to the the FNN (French Federation of Naturism), seeing many more young families showing up to camps with their children.

I had to comment where I first saw this in the "Naturism in decline?" thread. Those are huge numbers indicative of a mass cultural change and attitude, more than just half a million gathering at resorts.

It makes sense that the French youth in their 20's and early 30's would be affected by events of their times, question and act and react.

I dug a little deeper into the articles and discovered this "Naturist Test" : http://naturism.france.fr/test-yourself/


My results were of course a naturist with my bags already packed. So I went back and purposely answered negative to see what they would say. After all, we are all naturists, not all of us know it yet.

This is the sly way they soothed the prude: Your result
"You still have reservations!

Naturism is not yet in your nature, that's for sure.

You live in harmony with nature, yes, for a short walk on Sundays.
When it comes to living nude, no way! You may have tried it once or twice, at home in your birthday suit or for a spot of midnight swimming (a moment of madness?) but there's a big leap to it becoming part of your lifestyle, a new place of freedom...

But still, as the saying goes, "only fools never change their minds"!
What's more, in naturist campsite/resorts these days, people go to restaurants or shop at the supermarket with their clothes on, so you aren't left wondering where to put your wallet!
More and more families are choosing naturist holidays and finding a true sense of well-being from it.

Perhaps a little visit to the "Naturist by Nature" website is in order: discover the questions & answers which everyone asks, find the naturist campsites and resorts which meet your holiday requirements in the most beautiful regions of France."

Try this for a naturist wallet - available from camping shops.

Yes, that is a problem.  We can't go to stores or restaurants with our natural human bodies.  I really enjoyed Cap d'Agde where the markets and restaurants were naturist.  I want a free country where we are not harassed by the government for our choice of clothes or not clothes.  We are all beautiful human beings.  We are not indecent or obscene just for being human.

A money belt, a shoulder strap, lots of ways to carry stuff.

Interesting! I scrolled down to find the aforementioned box.

I was wondering how large it was and how much you could carry in it.
The photo doesn't really have anything in to to provide scale.
Soooo, I checked under the shipping options I discovered a curious feature:

Shipping Size:
    Size:      0 cm 0 cm 0 cm
    Weight:  0 kg

I would like to find out if they also manufacture any kind of storage products. My garage and a few of my closets could use a storage unit that occupies "no space". This would mean I no longer need to purge, cull or otherwise get rid of all those important items accumulated during life.

Placing all those things in a folded dimensional unit is not only a brilliant solution with regard to space, but the fact that a zero size in our universe seems to also imply a zero mass in the same universe, means transporting could be done via the postal service!

Why has this idea taken so long to appear? :D
