AANR_Int gives Intersex individual the cold shoulder | The Naturist Page


It all started out as a simple call out to AANR_Int’s Twitter feed when an Intersex individual was simply requesting information on rates with a minor argument on fees due to sexual orientation and it blew up out of proportion for no reason. The following is the original post as seen in a group and retweeted tagging AANR_Int. Their response was not only off topic but by their response, not even cared about and giving Mikia the cold shoulder with their off topic reply.

 

 

 

The reason i’m not only angered by this reply is because they did not even take into consideration of this Intersex individual what so ever. After this response i’m requesting AANR for a re-review of this topic. Personally I believe a better in depth reply is in order upon this ordeal.

The Naturist Page | Montreal’s Summer is so far all washed up!


So far this summer is truly all washed up. With the early spring flooding with rising water levels and nearly every day with more rain or scattered showers, it’s been nearly impossible to go to Oka or Bare River for a decent day in the sun to enjoy the summer. Now we’re in July, it’s only 2 months left of summer and most over here on the east coast have had not much to work with when planning a simple outing without checking the radar.

If you’re like me, I’ve been constantly planning my day based on the radar. moreover, you can not always depend on the radar or forecast because it’s that kind of weather where even meteorologists have a hard time predicting when rain or storms come because you can check one min, then the next there is a developing system out of nowhere! Don’t blame the weather man/woman, this year has been kinda like a game of Russian roulette!

We do hope that the weather improves so that we don’t need to rely on the radar or forecast. After a long winter for us Canadians, 3 months of summer really does go by too fast to get your all over tan at your local Naturist beach, campgrounds, resort or simply in your own yard! To be honest, this year I’ve gotten more of a tan at home on my balcony than anywhere else because of this unpredictable weather we’ve been having this summer.

Barefooting in Naturism | The Naturist Page


SONY DSCI truly love the ability to be able to shed the clothes off to truly feel alive and the liberating feeling that goes with it; for me it’s another step to be a barefooter. For me, it takes it to a whole new level.

I was always barefoot at home because I can’t stand anything on my feet. It’s also more comfortable that way. My first barefoot experience was not at a campgrounds, resort, or the pool… that’s a very common place where most of us are barefoot and that does not count.

I was about 10km from home wearing my old sandals when a thunderstorm came out of nowhere, bringing heavy rain with it. The sandals I was wearing are dangerous when they are wet because it’s like walking barefoot on marble floors with oil on your feet! Not gonna happen or I’m going to hurt myself! So I decided to take them off and walk home barefoot in the rain. It was a really nice feeling on the feet with the rain and the puddles. The whole walk home I got to experience so many new sensations and textures. Walking in the running water along the sides of the streets, wet grass, dirt, mud, rocks, even the painted lines on the roads have a different feeling on the feet. My feet never felt so happy to be free from footware! When I got home I was like a wet rat but that’s when I decided to try combining my love for Naturism with barefooting.

IMG_20140615_193637My first all day being truly completely free of the clothes and footwear was at La Pommerie, centre naturiste et écologique. I went there with my buddy Happy Bare one year and decided to spend the whole day naked and barefoot. While there are people there with sandals on their feet (and that’s fine) I wanted to be more in tune with nature by Earthing. (“When we make direct contact with the surface of the Earth our bodies receive a charge of energy that makes us feel better, fast.”) My favorite place over there to truly feel connected to nature was in the forest with the leafs, mud, and running streams. Oh there were some bridges to get over some of these streams, but I took the road — I mean stream less traveled on and walk across the stream, rather than taking the bridge.

SONY DSCSince that day, I find myself going barefoot a lot more back home in the city. However, there are more things to be cautious about when barefooting/earthing in the city. Watch out for sharp objects and other various foot hazards. My favorite place is talking a nice long walk along the water front (River in my case) I really don’t mind if my feet get dirty because I know after that I can clean them. Also, I always carry a pair of emergency sandals where I go.

Of course, if you’re new to barefooting/earthing, your feet will take some time getting use to rough surfaces. With time your feet will adjust and get used to it. I highly recommend barefooting/earthing for all ages! You’ll thank me later when you experience the feeling or sensation of being connected to the earth.

Bare River Flooding | The Naturist Page

Bare River

I’m sure you’ve been reading in the tabloids about the flooding along the St. Lawrence river; it’s certainly never good for the residencies who live near the shore of these regions.

A few years go we had high waters but nothing like this year. Usually when you attempt to go to Bare River, you must descend a steep path having to walk your bike (or by foot) to go the next 2km or so to get to the area known as Bare River. The two kilometer trek is usually easy to get to riding your bike because there is a path to get you there — riding between a tree line, rocks and the shore.

This year, I went there a few days ago to find myself descending the path and I was to an abrupt stop. The water line was so high, that it’s impossible with a bike to even go 50m towards to Bare River due to all the trees and having to (at this time of year) walk with your bike in 10°c water. At this time of year it’s pretty cold to walk in that water for 2km. Even if I was even able to man-up the cold, by the time I arrived there would not be any place to lay a towel to enjoy the sun. The only way to find a place to lay the towel down would be inside the trees where the sun is blocked. so not much sun to enjoy. Of course you could enjoy some naked time — just minus the sun; at this time of year the air is cool in the shade. Not really naked weather yet in the shade.

Why not bike the 2km after the decent point you ask? It’s because if I were to do that, there is a large rock and tree line cliff where it’s almost straight down. So bringing a bike and trying to get down will be very difficult to do. Even if one were to manage to make the decent, it would be 4x harder getting back up.

Moreover, Tomorrow (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) they are calling for more rain in the forecast. I do hope it’s not too much. Only time can tell.

Naturist Cleaning firm; risks of being raped by clients. | The Naturist Page


naturist-cleaners-based-in-surrey-is-looking-for-more-female-staff1A cleaning firm in Surrey and Sussex who were looking for Naturist women to clean houses in the nude for a majority of male customers are in deep water when women are being raped. (Yvonne Traynor, CEO of the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre)

People are being warned and personally, do not take on random jobs like this. It’s very risky and you never know what you might be getting yourself into. If you’re going to take on a job like this, make sure that the place is a trusted naturist venue, federation, campground, resort, etc.

The name of the cleaning firm is unknown at the time. However, if more information surfaces, you’ll be the first to know.

I’m looking to write a pro-naturist hero/action story, and I could use your help.

Hi friends,

I hope your weekend has been going well. I just turned 26 this past Friday, and despite having to be dressed much of the time while staying with my parents, I have been enjoying my weekend. Last night, I sat naked in my sleeping bag and I was thinking about the German short film “Studies of Hysteria”, about a young German man living in a nude world whom soon rejects him after he discovers and becomes obsessed with a pair of jeans he finds in a nearby forest.

It made me think of writing a short story myself, picturing a post-Apocalyptic world caused by overhaul of materialism and urbanization, in which people live a simpler, more natural and rural life, in which naturism is the norm. Originally I pictured a parody-style imitation of “Studies on Hysteria” in another point of view, but now I’m picturing a more original…
