The glorious mid autumn weather continues to be a welcome pleasant surprise as England basks in temperatures in excess of 20c for much of the first week of October. A couple of wet days have occurred or been forecast in the last fortnight but the rainfall during this time has been well below the normal average in our part of England. Today and tomorrow are expected to be wet but after that the weather should turn nice again.
What has this meant for us ? More visits to Arcadians and more naked days relaxing clothes free under the sun. We have been arriving for day visits rather than weekend ones as the temperatures drops greatly at night but once we arrive get undressed its just as warm,comfortable and pleasant as it has been for most of the summer. In the past we’ve tended to go for naked rambles along the coast,in the woods or even been sunbathing at the beach but now as we’ve got a cabinchaletshed it seems more sensible to go to the club,with all its modcons and a swimming pool with a water temperature of around 30c.
Many people think likewise with friends of ours going to their own clubs,some going to the beach and a few others even going for a naked ramble,through southern and middle England. New naturist stories have started to appear in the press,who’s attitude seems to have softened a little,even though in most the silly innuendos still continue. On the whole for the most part there’s little bad feedback and more positive comments where commenting is allowed and some of the stories to are written by women.
During June of this year BN started an initiative to try and attracted more women into naturism through ladies days and ladies naturist swims. The press release said : “It is a fact that Naturism appeals more intuitively to men than women, though women in naturism are possibly more passionate about it and report a greater life-changing experience. Many women also state that they were introduced to Naturism by a husband or boyfriend and were hesitant, but now can’t imagine life without it and believe it to be good for them and their children. It also seems to be true, for whatever reason that women,promoting Naturism is more credible.”
To be honest why this should be is probably more down to reputation and stereotypes than anything else. For me its only promoting the naturist lifestyle that is important,nothing else and trying to convince people its just as nice and enjoyable to live with relatively little and that includes clothing too.
