Nigel, you have been very distant...come back to the fold, we are still nattering vigorously and would greatly welcome your views and input as in ancient days!
John

Don't worry, I'm still around! I'm much more involved with BN these days so I'm more often at one of the clubs being collared about the latest political issue or looking into a dispute; haven't done anything free-range for ages. Still getting the sun though, in the garden or at my local club.

Well it's always great to hear from you, Nigel.
Perhaps you could be our BN roving reporter and keep us posted on the thrills and spills of naturist internal politics*!
Which is your local CO club?

We're both members at Spielplatz in Bricket Wood.

I wouldn't want to inflict BN's internal politics on anyone but I think we do a lot of useful stuff too, and the events (The Gathering, Nudefest, Splashdown and the rest) are great fun!

I have a mild ambition to visit Spielplatz.  It's on my backburner action list.  I shall take the opportunity one day.  However for the last decade it's been a 2+ hr drive away, so not really on top of the priorities!
Maybe we could rendezvous there!

Hi Nigel, I think that's a fair summary of the situation at BN :).

I also have thought about visiting Speilplatz, but its a long way around the M25 :(.

One thing Nigel did not mention was the BN Members holidays. (I am really looking forward to the Croatian Cruise. Last time I asked there were still a couple of spaces left.)

And John, you are right; it is time you joined. (I wonder what Mrs N would make of the BN Magazine dropping on the doormat every few months  ;) )

Have fun,


Ian.

This is one of the things that stops me joining.  Her discomfort that I was 'visibly' clubbing with other naturists.


She thinks you lot and BN are a danger to me in that I might be terminally perverted into joining groups of naturists and being naked all the time and things like answering the door naked or such. She has trouble working out why people post pictures on the forum - she thinks its exhibitionism.  She is right in a way but no more so than people posting a selfie on facebook.  She hasn't, despite my very occasional attempts to enlighten, grasped that we don't recognise the naked human form as anything other than normal and unremarkable so anything we report is no different from someone putting their holiday snaps on a forum or social media. She's not ready for BN even if I am!


But there are little victories - I was sunbathing naked in the garden today and she came onto the patio and tut tutted.  She was worried because a friend said she may pop round but didn't give a time.  Obviously I would not want to be caught naked in full sight of a tolerance-untested stranger any more than she would want that.  However, she looked at my shorts next to me and said "Oh, you've got something to cover up" and so didn't ask me to stop being naked just in case the friend called (which she didn't!).  Small result.

I would chalk that up as a significant step. She has noted that you are conscious of not causing her any embarrassment. That trust is valuable and was one of the cornerstones of Carole's becoming more relaxed about my preferences.

Once that trust is firmly established, it will be far easier to be naked when she is around without getting a pushback.

Great stuff. Keep having fun,


Ian.

I wouldn't use the word "perverted" or "a danger", but..."might be," or "terminally?" I figure she's correct on that count! ;D

I agree with Ian, John. Thatís a good sign.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if such a thing did happen and nothing happened?
