” We’re now well into September….where has the summer gone ??? ”
In these times of austerity there are important questions you have to ask yourself one is….Is it possible to enjoy the delights of the countryside and the same time enjoy the highs and low of the British climate to the full without spending a small fortune to do it….the answer is equivocally Yes !
How do you do this ? Well firstly you you have to move the goalposts a little and also set your sights,thoughts,emotions and expectations to a wider scale,than most people normally do. What this means is that you shouldn’t expect everywhere to have the latest gizmos,you shouldn’t expect everything to be done for you and you shouldn’t expect everything to be the same everywhere. By changing your views and expectations you can get far more enjoyment from having less in this modern age.
Being naturists and being a member of a naturist club as we are you can get so much enjoyment from just doing the simplest things. Trimming branches can be pleasant, instead of a chore if its done without the restriction of clothing. DIY jobs become more enjoyable as you experience the added sensual pleasures of doing them naked, even washing up indoors or out isn’t as onerous as it normally is. Maybe its because of the breeze, maybe its because whatever we do, we don’t get as warm (and sweaty) and as for the washing up, maybe its more enjoyable because our clothing doesn’t become all wet and soggy either.
So far this year our visits have been on the whole very pleasant. In April the average daytime temperature hovered around 15c rising to 16c, in May 20c, in June and July topped out at nearly 23 degrees. It’s been very pleasant on most occasions with the odd day reach nearly 30c.
Even being in the rain is far more enjoyable if its done on a hot day and while totally in the nude. All in all its something you never need tire of, providing you enjoy it to the full. This year we have so far made visits from Easter till September to our little naturist hideaway and got full value for the membership fee we pay each year. Some days we’re not always naked,especially in the chillier evening but its always such a pleasure to get away from the stresses of modern life. It amazes us that some people pay the fees year after year, then hardly ever turn up,some struggle because of illness or age that’s understandable, but surely in this day and age everyone want value for money…don’t they ?
Naturism : Total Body Freedom is a pastime for some a way of life for others,but for most people it is something that they just don’t understand. It is something that they presume to be weird,saucy or even sexual, which definitely it is not. It is generally agreed by naturists and naturist organisations alike,that eroticism and blatant sexuality have no place in naturism and are, in fact, antithetical to the ideals.
Idealistic positive reasons that have at times been given with regards to the practice of active naturism are that its is Ecological or environmental friendly and gives you a rapport with the natural world that surrounds us.Health reasons are also given such as bathing in the sun, fresh air and water (balneotherapy, thalassotherapy, heliotherapy) and that sunshine is a form of medicine. Naturism has at times been associated with claims made for moderation with alcohol, meat, tobacco, drugs; leading to a Teetotal, Vegetarian or Vegan lifestyle and also that spirituality man is no more than an animal,just like the birds and the bees. Really though its something everyone should enjoy.
