‪You need to learn how to say no to situations, people and opportunities that do not support your path. Don’t do things out of guilt or remorse, that’s not authentic and it only creates resentment towards others and ourselves. Never feel bad for honoring your journey.‬

A better, more positive Tumblr



Since its founding in 2007, Tumblr has always been a place for wide open, creative self-expression at the heart of community and culture. To borrow from our founder David Karp, we’re proud to have inspired a generation of artists, writers, creators, curators, and crusaders to redefine our culture and to help empower individuality.

Over the past several months, and inspired by our storied past, we’ve given serious thought to who we want to be to our community moving forward and have been hard at work laying the foundation for a better Tumblr. We’ve realized that in order to continue to fulfill our promise and place in culture, especially as it evolves, we must change. Some of that change began with fostering more constructive dialogue among our community members. Today, we’re taking another step by no longer allowing adult content, including explicit sexual content and nudity (with some exceptions).  

Let’s first be unequivocal about something that should not be confused with today’s policy change: posting anything that is harmful to minors, including child pornography, is abhorrent and has no place in our community. We’ve always had and always will have a zero tolerance policy for this type of content. To this end, we continuously invest in the enforcement of this policy, including industry-standard machine monitoring, a growing team of human moderators, and user tools that make it easy to report abuse. We also closely partner with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Internet Watch Foundation, two invaluable organizations at the forefront of protecting our children from abuse, and through these partnerships we report violations of this policy to law enforcement authorities. We can never prevent all bad actors from attempting to abuse our platform, but we make it our highest priority to keep the community as safe as possible.

So what is changing?

Posts that contain adult content will no longer be allowed on Tumblr, and we’ve updated our Community Guidelines to reflect this policy change. We recognize Tumblr is also a place to speak freely about topics like art, sex positivity, your relationships, your sexuality, and your personal journey. We want to make sure that we continue to foster this type of diversity of expression in the community, so our new policy strives to strike a balance.

Why are we doing this?

It is our continued, humble aspiration that Tumblr be a safe place for creative expression, self-discovery, and a deep sense of community. As Tumblr continues to grow and evolve, and our understanding of our impact on our world becomes clearer, we have a responsibility to consider that impact across different age groups, demographics, cultures, and mindsets. We spent considerable time weighing the pros and cons of expression in the community that includes adult content. In doing so, it became clear that without this content we have the opportunity to create a place where more people feel comfortable expressing themselves.

Bottom line: There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.

So what’s next?

Starting December 17, 2018, we will begin enforcing this new policy. Community members with content that is no longer permitted on Tumblr will get a heads up from us in advance and steps they can take to appeal or preserve their content outside the community if they so choose. All changes won’t happen overnight as something of this complexity takes time.

Another thing, filtering this type of content versus say, a political protest with nudity or the statue of David, is not simple at scale. We’re relying on automated tools to identify adult content and humans to help train and keep our systems in check. We know there will be mistakes, but we’ve done our best to create and enforce a policy that acknowledges the breadth of expression we see in the community.

Most importantly, we’re going to be as transparent as possible with you about the decisions we’re making and resources available to you, including more detailed information, product enhancements, and more content moderators to interface directly with the community and content.

Like you, we love Tumblr and what it’s come to mean for millions of people around the world. Our actions are out of love and hope for our community. We won’t always get this right, especially in the beginning, but we are determined to make your experience a positive one.

Well it looks like my blog might be closing. It was previously flagged as explicit for some reason and my previous efforts to overturn this have gone unanswered. I’m really hoping they review all pages and can tell that this is just a nudist blog with no offensive or explicit content at all! We will see…

The Natural – under new ownership


The Natural Curaçao: a beautiful future assured! 

The Natural Curaçao is known worldwide as a clothing optional resort where peace and nature are central. Over the years, the resort has experienced a healthy growth. A unique concept is at the heart of this growth. Our loyal visitors come from all over the world with one goal in mind: enjoy peace in a suitable place where respect for everyone is paramount. Our visitors are both experienced naturists as well as people who are enjoying their first experience.

On the 1st October, management was taken over by us, a Belgian couple, Judith and Kris. Thanks to our ambitions, a perfect combination of naturism and tranquillity can exist within this beautiful location in the middle of nature of Curaçao, an island in the Netherlands Antilles, in the Caribbean, off the cost of Venezuela. 

Kris: "When we were looking for an appropriate investment a few months ago, it was very important to us that we could find our soul in our future project. We love everything that nature has to offer and realize that everybody needs some moments of peace. The world of today keeps on running at a hellish pace and demands its toll every day. Burn-outs and depression are the worst ailments of this century. The Natural Curacao is the perfect medicine. Just charging the batteries within an oasis of peace works wonders. I speak from experience. We therefore decided to fully retain the current concept as it is: being able to enjoy being naked, in calm and natural surroundings. When we saw the reviews on various booking sites, it was clear that the resort is very much appreciated. As people always say: never change a winning team!

The current daily rates also remain valid. We will soon expand the number of available accommodations (especially the safari tents are very popular!) and start up new internal activities (e.g. setting up a small, cosy bar where visitors are welcome in the evening). We like to listen to the wishes of visitors.

We focus on all ages (from the age of 14), with a clear appeal to young people who unfortunately still think too often that enjoying free times is only possible within a world of luxury and entertainment. We prove that it can be done differently and that enjoyment can be simple. Naturism is for all age. We never doubted the “clothing optional” formula that we offer. Everyone is welcome and if one still hesitates whether or not to enjoy their stay naked, we do respect their choice. The Natural Curaçao has a loyal audience. 

May we welcome you soon? We are looking forward to it.

Sunny natural greetings

Judith & Kris
