Clarification on the terms of Naturist and Nudist


Naturism. It’s not just about shedding your clothing and getting naked. So what is Naturism?

Naturism is to be in tune with nature with the elements of life and nature around you. It’s like the expression being high on life where you comfortable in your skin without any negativity around you. The love of the sun over your skin, the breeze across your skin and the feeling of the earth on your bare feet. Experiences like this are often heightened more so with a friend, family member(s) or a loved one where you and who you’re with, can experience it together. Just remember, much like the textile world, lewd behaviour is frowned upon in the Naturist community when in the public. There is nothing wrong with being intimate — it’s a natural human behaviour. However, if you want to be intimate with your partner, please do that in the privacy of your home where you wont offend somebody.

Nudist. What’s wrong with the term and why do so many people get confused with the term?

The problem with the term nudist is the media and porn industries use this term all the time and this is why people rather be called a Naturist than be called a Nudist. But is there a difference between the two terms? In the Naturist community’s view there is no real difference. I think the main reason why people rather be called a Naturist is due how the media and porn industries portray the term to be something sexual when using the term ‘nudist’.

You may use either term really. Places in Europe rather use the term nudist. Maybe because Europe has already divided nudity and sexual behaviour as being two different things. That to be naked isn’t a sexual statement and by simply being naked is being normal or natural.

Naturism is a lifestyle that isn’t judgmental. As long as your being yourself and enjoying the high on the clothes free life — yes we all have flaws on our bodies, who doesn’t? I have many scars from sports, surgeries, and acne. This does not stop me from enjoying my life. Am i worried that people will in a figuratively manner point fingers and whisper to others on my flaws? Not in the least. Naturists aren’t judgemental in that way because we respect one and other for our character. Unlike in the textile world where judging people is all around us. people judge others on the bus, metro/subway, malls, on the street, even in our very home where they feel they though was a haven from negativity.

Stop the body shaming and being judgemental on others. Learn self-respect for yourself and of others. You’ll find you will see and feel what it is to feel true freedom and have a much better respect of even the little things around you. You only live once, enjoy it now because even if you tell yourself that if people usually live to 100 years — that 100 years FLYS by fast!

Montreal needs an Official ‘Urban Naked Zone’ | The Naturist Page


c389tang_parc_angrignon

I was sitting here sipping my coffee looking out the window trying to think of a place next week to sunbathe, without offending someone who might end up calling me out and getting the police involved. I thought about it for a moment when Germany came to mind.

Germany has for around two years now have set up 6 official urban naked zones. Munich, Englischer has two places and Isar River Garten does as well. Because Germans do not make other people feel uncomfortable in their nakedness and unlike western countries that have taboos around public nudity. Germans accept no link between sexuality and the naked body.

I thought about it for a while. Where in Montreal would be a good spot for an urban naked zone. The only places I could think of was maybe somewhere on Mount Royal (Tam-Tams maybe or elsewhere) or Parc Angrignon. The main hiccup with this idea is how people would handle seeing the naked body. Whereas Germany does not find nudity a problem at all and will not be offended unless you make it sexualized.

I also feel that it’s not just Montreal that we should be wishing for more urban nude zones, but across Canada, USA, UK, etc — I think we should see these kind of zones everywhere.

6a00d8341bf67c53ef0147e15378f3970b-500wi[1] Clothing/body lice There is a study that I was reading and says that Humans First Wore Clothing 170,000 Years Ago, some time after the second-to-last Ice Age that made living the nude life a little too cold for comfort. Before this time, clothing lice or body lice were non-existent until clothing came about in humans. Clothing lice first began to genetically diverge from human head lice. Needless to say, humans are responsible for causing the evolutionary process of head lice into clothing/body lice some 170,000 years ago. (long after humans lost their ape-like body hair.)

Neanderthal_2D[1] 100,000 years ago In Africa, humans survived for hundreds and thousands of years without clothing or body hair because of the practice of using fire when it became cold. It was only when clothing was invented that made it possible to invent new tools and migrate to colder or higher latitudes some 100,000 to 60,000 years…

3 naked activities for a spring week-end


Nu et heureux - Naked and Happy

Eh… TGIF! And tonight the week-end starts. So as I was thinking about what to share today, I came up with three activities that I will do over the week-end weather permitting of course, and that you can do too. Nothing fancy, nothing expensive, nothing incredible, just three simple activities that do not require clothes apart from a hat if the sun shines and good shoes if the terrain is spiky. Here we go!

  1. A naked hike. Open a map of your surroundings, a hiking map if possible, spot a nice track you have not done, grab your shoes, your hat and some sunscreen. Pack some snacks and water, a lot of water, and off you go. 4, 5 or 6 hours of total nakedness in nature.
  2. A naked swim. It’s beach time again. The water will be chilly for course, but cold water is very good for…

What have you done for me lately!


Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch

No to FCN

It has been a while since I have had the time to set aside some time to write, and in all honesty at his busy time of year it is not that easy to come by that extra minute or two. That being said here I am and only because I have been outraged at the happenings within a social media group Canadian Naturists on Facebook.

Well I came across what seemed to be an innocent enough post regarding some issues and concerns about the Federation of Canadian Naturists membership cards and magazines and how some people were not getting theirs. Well I decided to make a small note that we here at Freedom Fields Naturist Ranch had decided to drop them as an organization at the beginning of 2014.

Now at that time I thought nothing of it just a quick note as to where we stand here and…
