"The thought of exposing your pale winter flesh to strangers may be totally horrifying, but what better way to cultivate a positive body image than by bravely stripping down with a bunch of friendly people of all shapes and sizes? Grab a friend for moral support, and give these naked activities a try." Read it here: Where to Get Naked in NYC
"The depression hit Britain in late 1929 and it saw a ‘shanty town’ of unemployed men and a few women develop on land near Hendon\. The site bordered the Brent Reservoir (commonly called Welsh) and bathing in the lake was also permitted. In the summer of 1930 some of the men took to sunbathing naked, having chalked up notices on trees warning the public not to intrude if they were offended by nudity.
Nothing this bold could be kept secret forever and by June roughly 40 men and women would sunbath naked – or topless – on the banks of the Welsh Harp Reservoir at a weekend."

"The origins of yoga can be traced back to 500–200 BCE, and some believe it actually was practiced by Vedic priests long before. It came to the attention of educated Westerners in the 19th century and has been a mainstay among the health conscious ever since. So when the developers behind the social network TrueNudists.com launched Nude-Yoga.com in 2013, it was more of a way to bring the past to the future and incorporate modern-day naturism with what has been considered natural for centuries."

"If we were like the other 99.9% of mammals, we would have been born with fur. According to scientific theory we hominids have been hairless for at least 1.2 million years. Nakedness seems to have come about the same time as we learned to make and use fire. Maybe (this is in jest) we lost our fur so we would not catch on fire if we sat too close to the flames."

"Recently my Facebook news page had a picture removed by Facebook with the advisory “your picture breached community standards blah blah blah, please remove any other pictures of this nature”, they did not penalise me with a timeout in the sin bin, probably because it was a first offence.
The picture in question was a photo from behind of myself after I was body painted at the Samurai Beach Nude Picnic held on the 6th of April 2013. Then they hit me again..." Read Nudeyman's Article: FACEBOOK “COMMUNITY STANDARDS”

"Today, I got naked. At the beach. Fully, stark naked. SO I DID!! In front of the entire beach, I whipped off my dress, nothing underneath and I slid into the water. It was AMAZING!
The water was crisp and cool over my entire body and as I paddled about I listened to a bunch of people who were talking about the dolphin who visited the beach the day before. It felt civilised."

"I strolled through the woods completely free, listening to the birds, feeling the sweat glisten on my skin in the humid air. I just felt, relaxed. I was happy for once, it taught me that there was a therapeutic way to rid myself of the anxiety.
Not only because I was nude, but because I was in a place where I was accepted. Nakedness and all."

"I stumbled upon a controversial photograph on Facebook earlier today. It’s an image of an adult’s bare torso, showing from just above ribs to just below hips. Not a big deal. The problem is that this wasn’t a shot of some guy out jogging or sunning himself on a beach or walking to class on a warm day. It was of a woman’s torso." Alexandra Rosado on FB
