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.

Naturism from summer to winter & Being with the FQN in Winter | The Naturist Page


SONY DSCIt’s obvious that once fall arrives, the cooler/colder temperatures start to make any Naturist that live in the colder areas of the earth, feel a little bummed out. I am one of them. It’s that time of year now where it’s time to hang up the usual activities I enjoy dearly outdoors in with nature and the feeling of that sun-kissed warmth of the sun getting my healthy dose of vitamin D. In Summer, I love going skinny dipping in the rivers, lakes and ponds. Naked hiking up north along the Red River; as well as weekend naked camping over there. It’s beautiful at night where your only light source is either the moon, campfire or a battery-powered flashlight. Escaping from the light i’d jump from rock to rock till i found a nice place to lay on a rock looking up in the sky and seeing more beautiful stars than grains of sand on a beach. Occasionally see a shooting star or three!

Now we’re a day away from Halloween and I’ve already began to feel some light snow on my face. It’s that time of year where if it wasn’t for the FQN, I’d probably be clothesfree with my wife indoors at home. I’m glad the FQN has been around since 1977 by a man we can not thank more, Michel Vais. I think my first time I decided to give it a try with the FQN during the winter was sometime around 1994. I was around 16 years old then. back then, They had the YMCA near l’Allier metro station. Over there, they had EVERYTHING you’d love to do. a wide variety of activities you can do under one roof. Every Sunday, You had the choice to do what you loved to do. I for one, Always went first, down stairs to the Workout Gym. You would find me on the treadmill running away, or on the pedal bike trying to keep my legs active for cycling season. I love to ride my bike long distance in summer and this was the best way I could keep up my stamina for that. After a long good hard workout, I’d rinse down all the sweat and head on over to the swimming pool and swim until it was about to close. 30min before it did, I’d hit the sauna or hot tub where I’d then shower down and then the sad and dreadful part — getting dressed again for that -40°c trip back home that usually took one hour and thirty minutes to get home. They have the following activities at the time in the YMCA, swimming, running track, workout room, tennis, badminton, volleyball section, sauna, and hot tub. Not to mention the free coffee and occasionally free biscuits or cookies that other members would bring in for others. For me, that was the best location they had ever had.

Now a days, I feel either the FQN is lacking the funding or for whatever else may be the issue, have scattered the events all over and around Montreal. The same activities (except the workout gym) are spread all over the place that makes it difficult for someone like me to get around without a car. They are scattered in Montreal, Laval, Repentigny, etc. No longer in one spot. However, I am grateful that there are lifts available to these events where you can carpool with trusted members. I just wish it was like at the YMCA back then where you had everything under one roof where it was easier to get there and have the trouble to decide what to do next, rather than being forced to do what was happening at that venue — and only that at that venue.

I will forever support the FQN, because if it wasn’t for them, we’d be left in the cold quite literally in winter. Thank you very much, FQN. I’m so happy you guys are around to help make the winter blues feel easier to get through!

Why I (as a Naturist) stopped hosting the WNBR | The Naturist Page


065photographer

Although the intent for the World Naked Bike Ride is for the right reasons by promoting a greener future by reducing the use of gas and oil dependencies. As well as promoting body acceptance and of others by getting noticed by drivers that we as a cyclists are very vulnerable to cars and trucks; by getting people to use their bikes more and cars less.

I co-organized the Montreal WNBR for 3 years and in that three years it was a complete success. However, I could not help notice the same pattern each year within myself when it came to the general public who were not taking part in the events. The media are one thing — but the amount of others with all the camera *click* *click* *click*… people focusing on bits alone with cameras not taking photos of us for the event, but rather for the body parts. I felt like I was no longer co-organizing a World Naked Bike Ride, but rather a voyeurism event where it was like, “Ohh hey, come gather around and snap photos of the genitals!” Which was not the idea behind the WNBR at all.

In my first year of doing the WNBR we had nearly 200 people for the event. I first for Montreal to have so many participants involved. Then as the years went by the number had dropped significantly. By the 3rd year we were floating around 20-25 people. The reason that I believe is because of all these other people just snapping away and making the women and men feel uncomfortable to participate in the events by making them feel like objects. I no longer felt like I wanted to be a co-organizer for the WNBR with the feeling of being a responsible for in my mind, supporting all this voyeurism-like behaviour with the non-participants. As a Naturist, I’ve never supported this kind of behaviour. So for that reason I’ve stopped co-organizing The Word Naked Bike Ride.

It’s one thing being part of the event and snapping photos to remember the day one took part in the WNBR. That’s fine. Just as long as you’re not being an ass by taking photos for the wrong reasons. It’s another when you’re not in the event. I will still participate in the World Naked Bike Ride, that’s for sure! I just don’t feel like as a Naturist that I should co-organize one with that been said.

[Video]: Britain’s Secrets With Anne Robinson (Body Image) | The Naturist Page


captureAlthough the video takes place in Britain. It’s easy enough to say this would happen anywhere around the globe. The thing is, everyone has their own views on body image. Some have their extremes and others are carefree in the sense that they are perfectly happy with how they look like. skinny, fat, tall, short — they are happy just the way they look like. Clothed or not, I feel that if you care too much on body image it sort of becomes a mental health problem. Naturists are a lot more laid back on the body image. It’s far more healthy as a Naturist on views with body image. They don’t mind what others look like and that is just fine; even if they have scars, surgery marks, being fat, skinny — we’re all beautifully unique. Naturists don’t judge & a handful of non-naturists do as well. So embrace yourself and love your body! Learn a better self respect for yourself and of others! =)

In the video below, You’ll see all the various extremes when it comes to body image, clothing (or none at all), diet types (food), cosmetics and as well as cosmetic surgery, etc

Since I’ve Been Gone | The Naturist Page


naturistscottFirst off, I’d like to apologize for being so absent over the course of the summer. You can blame it on the Pokemon GO game. I’ve been addicted to the game since it came out and i have been out almost every day playing it. Meanwhile, in between that, I have had a chance to bike to Bare River a few times and have gone to La Pommerie  once this summer. I found that this summer wasn’t as hot as last year and that made me a little sad. I was hoping for a much better summer, temperature wise, that is. No matter, I will be renewing our membership with the FQN soon and be taking part in the winter activities they have to offer. (Swimming, Spa, gym, Christmas dinner, etc)

Speaking of the FQN. I’d like to thank PoissonDansLeau for emailing me on information that there are plans — or being talked about… that the FQN maybe working on an English version of the FQN forums for the english speaking members and non-members. I feel this is a great idea. It could help get more members involved in the FQN and help grow the community by making it easier for the English-speaking members to get involved in the community.

I do have an idea for this, and I’m not sure how this would work, but if it did, it would make the forums much easier this way — By implementing a system/code to automatically translate any text from french to english for the english users and doing the same for the french speaking users, english to french (not the whole page. by having the code see each individual post and translate accordingly. This way, no matter who types what in between english or french, either side will see it fully in english for the Anglophones, and fully in french for the Francophones. It’s just an idea I had while i’m typing this blog. It only came to me after i had the email conversation.

 

World Naked Bike Ride: Montreal 2016 (Daytime)


20160716_150139[1]

The world naked bike ride day time went off pretty well this year. As I stepped down as the co-organizer ‘for now’ due to being a little too busy in my life, Daniel did organize this ride very well.

With around 30 people this year, I was hoping for more people and a better gender balance. Out of the 30 there were only 3 females this year. I’m really not sure why — except the fact maybe they are shy with all the media and the cameras.

None the less, people came and participated in the ride for the cause of security for awareness of cyclists vs cars, body acceptance, body image and promote the human body. I’ve seen comments in news articles where people are disgusted with the whole nudity thing and I have one message for them. The human body isn’t something to be disgusted by. We all have one and it’s time for these people to wake up and realize that everyone is beautifully unique. I’m pretty sure textiles like you would have comments about your body as well. We’re not here to impress people — nor make them feel the opposite. Part of the world naked bike ride as i mentioned is about body acceptance.

The ride took off at 2pm with police escort protecting us from the busy traffic and construction along the route. Jade this year was a very big help with… even if he didn’t realize, co-organize the event with his strong charisma by letting people know what was going to happen and translate it perfectly to the riders.

Jade is a very good vLogger with his own productions and I was happy that he was able to help out this year. Thank you very much Jade!

After the first pass we had a random individual join us from the sidelines — debating fast, he stripped off fast before we passed him, he join us! Bravo!

I think the most powerful street we drove through was Cresent street. The main street where the night life is and the bars, clubs, etc. People there would cheer us on as if we were at some sports game! the vibe was strong there.

Looking forward to the nighttime ride that will happen August 6th at 9pm! Come join us! The  is much better to go to if your shy about being natural (nude); moreover, you DO NOT HAVE TO BE NAKED TO PARTICIPATE! Join us for the cause and most of all, have a fun ride!

Yes, I’m a Naturist but no, that does not mean I’m sexual. | The Naturist Page


,bare river 9-5-2015 copy

Yes I’m a Naturist. You ask me to get my clothes on like it’s something wrong. It’s not, nudity to me is natural because we were all born this way. That clothes to us Naturists is for when it’s cold. I don’t come in to your home and ask you to get naked because I’m uncomfortable with clothing. In fact, I’m completely fine if your clothed or not. It’s a matter of choice if you decide to have clothes on or not. Naturists are very friendly and opened minded on lifestyles. Why would you discriminate social and non-sexual nudity? Embrace body acceptance and acceptance of others.

Don’t look at nudity as something shameful. What ‘is’ shameful is, linking social nudity as something sexual and tabooed. People been so brainwashed by media, news and all the porn on the internet/tv/mags — that textiles have had their minds re-programmed to when they see nudity ‘SNAP’ they automatically associate it with sexual-ism. Just as you who wear clothes, we are protective on who we associate with in life because even in the Naturist lifestyle we too have people who pretend or are nudsts who are uneducated in our way of life. Them people we disconnect with. We have the same in common… sexual predators. We’re just simply living on opposite sides of the pond. Textiles and Naturists don’t want to have to worry about having to encounter a sexual predator. Yes, by nature humans are sexual beings but there is a time and place for everything and to have maturity level and ability to control how one behaves in public, like the clothed world.

So please, the next time you visit a Naturist home or in person, evaluate them just as you in the clothed world as we do in the Naturist world and make your judgment responsibly. If you do encounter a Naturist, Talk with them and you will see we are actually very kind and friendly people.
