Il nudismo è sovversivo

Nudismo sovversivo Molti nudisti praticano la nudità nel quadro di una certa filosofia di vita (e alcuni di loro si definiscono “naturisti”), ma pochi si rendono conto di quanto la loro pratica sia progressista e sovversiva.

La nudità collettiva, banale e familiare, praticata da nudisti e naturisti, è forse sostenuta e diffusa da molti mezzi di comunicazione? Persone influenti la additano forse come modello da seguire? È un modo di vivere la vita comunemente propugnato? No, al contrario: il senso comune, le grandi ideologie, le religioni, le norme di numerose società più o meno civili sostengono piuttosto la cosiddetta pudicizia e tendono a sviluppare schemi mentali che associano la nudità alla vergogna, al sesso e al peccato.

Con questa situazione è inevitabile che i mass media finiscano per dare risonanza alla minoranza di nudisti libertini, i quali non soltanto soddisfano gli ipocriti appetiti voyeristici del pubblico di certe trasmissioni o di certe riviste, ma al tempo stesso rassicurano i benpensanti, confermandoli nella loro idea che la nudità collettiva può essere praticata soltanto per scopi sessuali. In definitiva, si può dire che libertini e moralisti costituiscono le due facce della stessa medaglia: per entrambi la nudità è il mezzo per fare sesso. Ma la prova dei fatti dimostra che questa medaglia è una patacca fasulla!

Donna sui pattini Se infatti andiamo a vedere in cosa consiste davvero il nudismo praticato dai più, ecco che lo stereotipo dell’equazione “nudità = sesso” se ne va in frantumi. Visitiamo, ad esempio, una normale spiaggia nudista: decine, centinaia di persone se ne stanno nude insieme in un unico posto – donne, uomini, anziani, bambini – e non succede nulla di straordinario… niente orgie, niente scambi di coppia, niente stupri! Di più: nessuno bada alla nudità altrui. Alcuni prendono il sole, altri leggono un libro, altri fanno una passeggiata o un’attività sportiva, altri ancora chiacchierano amabilmente: tutti si comportano in modo assolutamente naturale godendosi il puro piacere dello stare nudi… Visto per quello che è veramente, il nudismo fa saltare in aria i preconcetti che legano la nudità al sesso. Per rendersene facilmente conto, è sufficiente un pizzico di onestà intellettuale e di apertura mentale, ossia di voglia di conoscere prima di giudicare!

In effetti, però, il nudismo non è soltanto una pratica balneare. A ben vedere, la nudità non è semplicemente il mezzo per apprezzare meglio gli elementi naturali quando si fa il bagno, quando si cammina all’aria aperta o quando si prende il sole. La liberazione offerta dal nudismo è ben più di questo: è la rottura dell’ideologia dominante e retriva che pesa sui nostri corpi e sulla nostra coscienza. Togliersi i vestiti e vivere la naturalezza del proprio corpo nudo significa respingere tutti quei condizionamenti che ogni giorno ci vengono imposti sulla maniera in cui dovremmo apparire, sulle mode che dovremmo seguire, sui canoni di bellezza ideale cui il nostro corpo dovrebbe aspirare. Mettersi nudi vuol dire rifiutare i sensi di colpa, di inadeguatezza e di vergogna che purtroppo vengono ancor oggi mantenuti in vita da una concezione distorta della nudità.

Passeggiando nudi In questo senso, il nudismo è sovversivo. Anzi, è rivoluzionario. Se la si smettesse di frapporre ostacoli al nudismo, se la nudità potesse essere tranquillamente vissuta in mezzo alla natura senza suscitare scandalo, si verificherebbe una vera e propria rivoluzione nella mentalità, che contribuirebbe a spostare l’ago della bussola della società dalla stoltezza dell’apparire alla genuinità dell’essere. Insomma, una rivoluzione pacifica e benefica, che porterebbe inoltre con sé, assieme al superamento degli stereotipi, una più facile affermazione di valori fondamentali, quali l’accettazione di sé, la tolleranza del diverso, il rispetto dell’altro.

Sia chiaro: non voglio dire, ovviamente, che tutti dovrebbero convertirsi al nudismo o che solo il nudismo è in grado di promuovere gli anzidetti valori. Intendo dire semplicemente che la società dovrebbe ormai riconoscere con serenità che il nudismo, lungi dall’essere un’espressione del male, della perversione o dell’esibizionismo, è al contrario una manifestazione positiva della nostra umanità: non un reato da perseguire o un peccato da condannare, dunque, ma un modo di vivere la vita che va rispettato e valorizzato, in quanto capace di educare la società contemporanea a riscoprire l’importanza dell’essenziale, del vero, del semplice, del naturale. Del nudo.

Liberamente ispirato a riflessioni svolte su Nu Nature et Naturisme pour un 21ème siècle humaniste et naturiste.

„Die seltsamen religiösen Umgänge sind aber Prozessionen von nackten Menschen. Am 14ten Februar 1589 war eine solche Prozession in der Pfarrey St. Nicolas-des-Champs, wos bei mehr als tausend Personen beiderlei Geschlechts, Männer und Weiber, Jünglinge und Mädchen, alle nackend zu sehen waren. Das nehmliche geschah am 24sten Februar desselben Jahrs den ganzen langen Tag. Man sieht also, dass diese Art von Spaziergängen ihre Liebhaber und Liebhaberinnen gefunden haben muss. Nachher wiederholte man diese Ceremonien auch nächtlicher Weile, und weckte oft die Pfarrer auf, um den Zug zu führen. Ein Pfarrer von Saint Eustache, der sichs einfallen liess, einige Vorstellungen gegen diese hieraus nothwendig erfolgenden Unordnungen sich zu erlauben, wurde als Ketzer behandelt.“

Capable, Not Disabled | The Alltogether http://www.aanr.com/blog/capable-not-disabled/

“Why do we as humans rather wear hot sticky clothing, thereby making ourselves uncomfortable? I watched the group swim and we all walked the short distance back to the house. I told them how much I felt relieved. It was this feeling of oneness with nature. One of them said, “Yep, this is what being a naturist all about.” Being nude is just an afterthought. In fact, after the first few minutes, I was very relaxed. I didn’t think about it.

I learned a valuable lesson. The lesson is that mother nature intended people to spend time outdoors, not indoors. We can carry out normal activities without clothes. This moment was very therapeutic for me. It was very empowering indeed. I use the word “disabled” as a medical term but we are all “CAPABLE” of becoming a nudist.”

Legalize Nudity created by Israel’s Tohm Lev came out in 2011 to promote Naturism and the desexualization of nudity. There were three versions made for the song and all will be provided below.

My Clothesfree Life: Living Outside the Mainstream

So, here I am reading all these other stories of folks in their different walks of life. Some are straight, some are gay. I’m a nudist. I think that I live an alternative lifestyle as much or more than gays and lesbians do. I’m certainly misunderstood more than they are. They see themselves as normal fine citizens who happen to love someone who is of the same gender. And…… Why….is….that….wrong? Outside of the mainstream ideal perhaps. But, they are real and genuine. So am I. I’m straight. I am not homosexual or homophobic. But I do live an alternative lifestyle by identifying and openly calling and identifying myself as a nudist. This is something I think I was born to be. There are some folks with nudist tendencies, that prefer a more sexual/sensual existence as a “swinger” or “life-styler”.

I personally, prefer the family-friendly PG-13 rated type of nudist existence. I feel that I have transitioned away from needing to wear clothes, to wondering why we wear them at all, if not for protection from the elements or our direct environment. Why do we wear clothes at all? Why must we be so compulsive about covering our bodies? And, why must so many people label us as weirdoes or deviants just because we don’t buy in to the concept that you have to wear clothes?

Gus in nature

Folks who sexualize simple nudity were probably raised with guilt issues or shame which makes nudity a taboo subject, and therefore, naughty or perverse. That concept is wrong about nudists. I personally enjoy taking myself to my most basic element, my nude self and living like that. Accept me for who I am with all my flaws and imperfections literally laid bare. Don’t judge me by my appearance or the trappings I might hide behind (like clothing). Down to my most basic element, just take me in the skin I was born in. That should be enough. Determine my worth as an individual by the way I conduct myself, by the way I act, or the words I select to speak. Those, my friends are the true windows into my soul. I was born to be a nudist. I am completely nude as I write this.

The next time that you see a person who lives their life outside the mainstream, ask yourself, “Are THEY the new normal?” Don’t think the worst of me because I’m unclothed. Think the best about me because I no longer hide behind them and see me for the real person I am. Love. Peace. Nudity. Thanks for reading.

On Teen Sexting: Same Sexism, Different Technology – Alexis C. Madrigal – The Atlantichttp://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/06/on-teen-sexting-same-sexism-different-technology/372965/

“The key finding is that both girls and boys send and receive naked or semi-naked pictures of themselves with some regularity, but only the girls are socially punished for it. “Boys in our study described girls who did send sexts as ‘sluts’ or ‘insecure,’ whereas they characterized girls who did not send sexts as ‘prude’ or ‘stuck up,’” University of Michigan researchers Julia Lippman and Scott Campbell write in the Journal of Children and Media . “This indicates that sexting is a lose–lose proposition for girls; regardless of whether or not they sext, their behavior is evaluated in harsh—and often sexist—terms.””

Are men’s naked bodies the stuff of nightmares? I think not

Are men’s naked bodies the stuff of nightmares? I think not:Naked men are funny and weird, naked women are beautiful. Why is that? Same question struck Zoe Margolis of the Guardian:

[M]uch of this coverage is done with tongue firmly in cheek, but that still presents a problem: men and male bodies are mocked and shamed as a matter of routine. It’s interesting that particularly with regard to male nudity, these strong responses – which often reflect disgust – are so common and pervasive, especially in the mainstream media, but also in widespread society.

This is in stark contrast to how the majority of women’s bodies are presented – as sexy and aspirational. Obviously, women are also criticised for how they look, but in comparison men, and the idea that they might be sexy, are almost always treated with scorn.

Home From Hiking, Writing and Camping

Writing in my add-a-room, protected from the mosquitoes.Writing in my add-a-room, protected from the mosquitoes.

Well, I am finally back home, done with camping for at least a week. I had very poor access to Internet and that didn’t bother me in the least as I was focused on other things such as writing, as you can see in this image, relaxing, and engaging in long hikes with my wife.

We walked all but one day in spite of it raining almost every day. The day we missed was raining too hard to even think of walking. So, we took in some jazz and then went to the city library as well as heading out for a coffee at Starbucks.

Our walking was a test to see how our equipment functioned, especially our rain gear. We twice walked twenty kilometres (that’s 12 miles for the metrically challenged), more than half of that in the rain. We got to stop about two-thirds of the way through each walk at a great coffee emporium called Broadway Roastery where we enjoyed cafe au lait as if we were stopping for refreshment while walking in northern Spain. Our goal is to walk about 1,000 kilometres when all is said and done in the fall of 2015 – the main part of that called the Camino Frances which will take us from Saint Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago del Compostele in north-western Spain. I will talk more about this Camino in future posts. For now, it is back to taking care of a few chores that have accumulated since we left a week ago for camping.

“Lindsay took some items into the changing room. Halfway through, she ran out of the room with nothing on and was chased by members of staff who were trying to cover her up,” a source was quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying. “She was laughing her head off and literally giving staff the run-around as customers looked on,” added the source.

Long time follower, first time submission. This is one of my favorite photos of myself, taken by my girlfriend. We’re in an LDR, and this was our third visit ever. We were getting ready in the morning (after some really great morning sex) and she told me to look up, and snapped this picture. I’m normally pretty shy about exposing my fat, but for her, I know she loves all of me. I’m comfortable with this picture, because it was taken by the woman I love. Have a blessed Sunday, Trouble and Ninja!

“That’s what’s insidious about micro-moderating female nudity on sites like Facebook and Instagram, deeming breast-feeding nipples acceptable and others pornographic: It keeps us locked into the same old toxic relationships to the female body. “As a reflection of the world’s culture, Facebook continues to be a place in which depictions of women as sexually objectified or debased is broadly allowable,” Chemaly writes, “but others, in which women represent their own bodies for non male-gaze sexual pleasure, is largely not.” “

Athena, Farewell

IMG_5704For the past four years, anytime we wanted to take a break from the great outdoors (whether it was too cold or too hot or too wet or whatever), we’ve retreated to Athena Spa, a two-story refuge in midtown near Madison, where they let us take over one of the floors and roam free. We’d hang out reading in the Hwangto dome sauna or inhaling the burning, herbaceous steam in the wet room or sipping drinks and nibbling tasties in the lounge or getting the kinks worked out of our backs and shoulders and butts and calves by their talented masseuses. All naked, of course. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen six or eight or a dozen New Yorkers, many of whom have never met before, walk in off the street, take off every stitch they’re wearing, and luxuriate in the combined bliss of pampering for the body and sparkling conversation for the soul.

Well…nothing lasts forever, alas, and after more than a decade of chasing winter chills and unlocking clenched trapeziuses, Athena is closing its doors at the end of July. It’s the classic Manhattan story: they lost their lease. The owners are directing customers to another spa further uptown, but…it’s not the same. Not even close.

So we returned this week for a farewell bash. Toasted the old place with champagne and SkinnyGirl…brought some Amy Tan, some Stephen King, some Hard Case Crime, some PREACHER…brought together members originally from the UK and Poland, from L.A. and Atlanta and Ozone Park, an NYU frosh and an MIT grad, a downtown artist and an upper west side novelist, and enjoyed four hours or so of unmitigated pleasure.

Goodbye, Athena. You were special, and will sorely be missed. (And we mean “sorely” literally.)

Why I posed naked and natural | Victoria Bateman | Comment is free | theguardian.com http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/may/16/why-i-posed-naked-and-natural-women-sex

“At the age of 34, I am comfortable in my own body. Reaching a certain age and realising that life is not infinite, I wanted to capture a moment in time. Initially this snapshot was going to be conventional. But, the more I thought about it, the more I could see the value in creating a work that was both “honest” – that showed me comfortable in my own skin – and that, as in my academic work, was not afraid to break through pre-existing barriers and to raise important questions.

My view is that we will never eradicate the overtly sexualised images of women. They will always be profitable to produce, as I well understand as an economist. Instead, I feel that the best way of providing an antidote to this societal disease is to make sure that we show women as they truly are – and that behind each nude is a human being who is not purely sexual.”

Back Home

Waiting for warmer temperatures for more outdoor living au naturel.

Waiting for warmer outdoor temperatures 

I am finally back home after more than a week travelling and visiting family in various locations. It has been ten days that were spent enjoyably even if I had to wear clothing most of the time. At least I got to sleep nude if nothing else.

Life is not defined by whether or not one is clothed or unclothed. Life is more about relationships and being at peace with oneself and with others. For me, nudity is a “bonus” when it is not about doing focused work for enhancing the healing of soul and psyche.

Now that I am back at home, I get to have more time clothes-free. I took this photo this morning as I am trying out a new camera that my wife gave me for an early birthday present. I turn 65 in six weeks time. The camera is a Sony a6000 DSLR, the lightest full camera that I have ever come across. Camera and lens weigh less than one pound, a very important consideration for me as I will be carrying a camera with me next year when I walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain with my wife assuming that my health stays good and my body allows me to walk an average of twenty kilometres (12 miles) a day for about 45 days to complete a pilgrimage of about nine hundred kilometres. My wife wonders how I am going to keep my clothes on rather than whether or not my body will survive this test.

Mum: men’s boobies are different, yours are bigger and floppier
Me: some men’s boobies are bigger than mine
Mum: but they’re still men’s. 
Mum:And really, society doesn’t want to see floppy man boobs either.

(via Nude Hiking and Soaking in the Pacific Northwest: A Little Nude Time is Better Than None …)

A Little Nude Time is Better Than None …

So I finished my latest series of chemo this past Sunday (Mother’s Day) and I get a break for awhile until radiation therapy in June sometime (they haven’t determined when, yet). A break is needed ‘cause the chemo is taking an unrelenting toll on my body … I need time to recover and mend.

I’ve gone back to work … not the full-schedule before (screw them) but enough to keep the medical up. As soon as I could get out of work on Monday, I booked for the mountains. The sun was out, not a cloud in the sky. I wanted and needed some nude time. I feel like ‘crap’ and probably look it too. Can anyone think of a better tonic than natural sunshine on your body?

Initially I thought about heading for Scenic … a nice though steep hike, what I really wanted was to slip into the pools of hot, natural spring waters and simply soak myself away to tranquility. But when I got to the start of the trek up to the springs the temperatures outside were just a little bit too on the chilly side (low 50s) for my-by-now nude body to endure. The more I kept looking up the road to Scenic the more I realized that willing and wanting as I was, I really did not have the stamina nor energy for that hike. So I reluctantly got back in the car and headed down the highway for something safer and warmer.

It took me an hour to get out of Seattle … another hour and a half to Scenic. Okay … so it’s getting late. Not much daylight left with the sun almost to the western ridge lines of the foothills. Whatever worked would have to be short for sure … the challenge was finding somewhere that at least got into sunlight instead of the shade and deepening shadows close at hand in the low valley of the river and highway. FS 6028 is one of those spots … a favored hiking place for me because it is gated, rarely used and rises into open clearcut with a late-afternoon exposure to the sun.

Hiking into the open areas along FS 6028 (near Grotto)
The nice thing about FS 6028 is that you know with a lot of certainty as to whether you have this easy logging road to yourself (gated, one-way in and out, logging operations long over). So you can hike nude with confidence for miles and enjoy scenic views over the Skykomish Valley below (and majestic Baring Mountain behind). The inbound trek to the first switchback is three-quarters of a mile. I made it maybe another quarter mile up before the steepening grade urged me to turn around and slowly amble my way back to the car. But this was the tonic I was looking for. Even a little nude time is better than none.

Back at the car and being a little bit presumptuous about the lack of cover here.
FS 6028 is great to get nude upon … but the area where you park is wide-open to nearby traffic whizzing by on Highway 2 (at least until the foliage starts to fill in). So sometimes you are taking chances hiking all the way back to the car. Nevertheless, I often do with a certain self-satisfaction that I’m simply not going to stop and pull on shorts for that last fifty feet or so. Let them see me and make of it what they will. Sometimes I can be difficult.

The sun is right at those western ridge lines now and I’m in a panicked state. I want more nude time outside. Where? I don’t bother to pull anything on. Onto the highway and thinking, “Where can a get a few more minutes to wander about and feel the environment on my skin?” Reiter Ridge was one thought … but that would be in shadow by now.

Can you get despondent about not enough nude enjoyment? I was certainly feeling that way as I passed Baring. Coming around the west curve I was surprised at the lack of parked cars at the Eagle Falls pullouts beside the highway. Eagle Falls is popular … Eagle Falls always has people pulling over and checking the falls out. What a surprise. I pull over. I love this picturesque spot!

This moss-covered wall beside the highway pullout shields you from view.
Eagle Falls is right beside Highway 2 and is a popular party spot for young people. Despite being a somewhat tempting, though dangerous placed for swimming, the wide basaltic ledges beside the falls see bonfires, loud music and drinking (and everything that goes along with the rites of spring and summer.

Party-spots beside the falls and rapids.
Nudity does happen on the hard-to-view ledges by Eagle Falls. Not often but I have visited and come across naked revelers around campfires and had some interesting times … most importantly, the go ahead and get nude myself (nudity is so much more fulfilling when you can share it with others).

But today, despite the warm day but being a Monday, I had the ledges all to myself and I get to wander around as much as I like while there is still a little bit of sunlight.

… some interesting artwork and a short video of the falls.

‘Women Complicate Things’ for Naked Yoga in Boston.

(via ‘Women Complicate Things’ for Naked Yoga in Boston. | Asana Exposed)

I celebrate my naked woman’s body in yoga
I celebrate my naked woman’s body in yoga

My Feathers are ruffled and my inner women’s rights activist is pissed.

I was politely added to the skycald naked yoga group in Boston per my request and then told I would not be able to participate in classes because of my woman’s body, meaning I have a vulva. I was told by the instructor ‘women “complicate” things.’ What I am hearing in that is that, we can’t be bothered to evolve our facilitation skills to hold space for a mix gendered group. The group write up prides itself on being naturist based with naturist values and to not have a focus on sex or a sexual experience. It is a listed as a group for ‘people’ not just men who practice naked yoga. At least be transparent that you’re a men’s group.

A couple of things come up for me in this – The very real inquiry of why there are seemingly so many more naked yoga classes for men? Next, why these classes then profess to be not sexually focused? By the very fact of excluding an entire gender you have now made it a very sexual focus by saying if your sex is a certain way you can’t participate. The entire aspect of this particular constellation of ‘people’ now becomes all about having and being a certain sex.

This remains a timeless inquiry for me. I was really hoping Boston would have a more progressive movement going.

Any Boston or Massachusetts dwellers want to start a gender-inclusive naked yoga practice with me this summer?

6 Reasons You Should Sleep Naked

(via 6 Reasons You Should Sleep Naked | Healthy Living – Yahoo Shine)

A recent study showed that less than 10 percent of Americans sleep in the buff. Whaa? Not only is it dead sexy, experts swear naked sleep is actually good for you. We asked them to spill on the top reasons you should ditch those pajamas for good.

By Natasha Burton

1. You’ll Air Out Your Hoo-Ha
Jennifer Landa, MD, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women, says that sleeping naked can be healthier for your private parts. While it’s totally normal to have yeast and bacteria down there, the warm environment can sometimes cause an overgrowth. One way to prevent infections is to “air it out” and go commando.

2. You’ll Sleep Better
While you might like being cozy and warm at night, it’s actually important to have a cooler environment when you sleep, says Lisa Shives, MD, who sits on the National Sleep Foundation’s board of directors. “Your body temp progressively declines as you sleep, which is a natural tendency of the body, so being too warm with heavy PJs and blankets can disrupt that.” Sleeping naked, she says, can help your body stay cool.

3. You’ll Look Hotter
According to naturopath Natasha Turner, best-selling author of The Hormone Diet, being too warm at night disrupts the release of melatonin and growth hormone-your main anti-aging hormones-into your body. “As your body temperature drops, growth hormone is released and works its regenerative magic,” she says. And that keeps your skin and hair looking awesome.

4. You’ll Lose Belly Fat
Sleeping naked helps you sleep more soundly, which will allow your levels of the stress hormone cortisol to decrease as you rest, keeping your energy and hunger levels in check, Turner says. When your sleep is disrupted, your cortisol will be too high when your alarm goes off, making you more likely to wake up hungry for comfort foods-and more likely to overeat them.

5. You’ll Feel More Confident
Sleeping naked feels great, Landa says. “We can tune in to sensations like the feeling of the sheets and the coolness of the air, which can be very sexy” she says. “And feeling sexy increases confidence.”

6. You’ll Have Better Sex
Landa says that sleeping naked is great for your relationship because laying skin to skin will increase feel-good chemicals like the cuddle hormone oxytocin. “Sleeping naked encourages sexier relationships,” she says. You’ll feel more relaxed and be more in the mood for intimacy.
