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.

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…

Save the World, Be a Nudist


It’s a great read, and point!

Vox Cheapoli

Yep, you saw that right.

It is the only way.

And you have to admit, the world, as it is right now, is not sustainable.

Global warming and pollution coupled with deforestation are destroying the very fabric of the planet.

Weather patterns have gone all haywire; the oceanic currents are on the verge of collapse, due to the release of huge quantities of fresh water from the glaciers and icebergs which are melting at an alarming rate.

The bees are dying, which means soon there will be no food.

The fresh water lakes and rivers are drying up, which means soon there will be no water.

The forests are getting cut down to make way for housing and farming, which means soon there will be no oxygen to breathe in.

And to add cherry on top, we are apparently going to run out of chocolates in about 20 years.

Of…

Naturism…where everyone is beautiful


Bare Thoughts

We all like to think we know what the perfect body is. Because we see it in magazines and on tv every day right? Well I got news for you: we don’t know. Well deep inside we know, but most of us ignore that. I’ll tell you what the perfect body is…

…it’s yours!

You’re beautiful. That extra flesh around your waste? Love it! That birthmark on your breast? Love it! That hair on your back? Love it!


A lot of people say we have a wrong body image because ” the industry ” tells us what beautiful is. I like to believe this wrong body image started before that. ” the industry ” is simply exploiting it, because they make a big profit while doing it. So where does it start in my point of view? Around the age of 4 years old. We have a saying here in…

The end of an era


Sorry to see them go! =(

Bare Thoughts

And there it is. The day I decided to stop with my webshops on December 31st of this year. After a great run of 1,5 year it’s time to close shop.

As mentioned in an earlier blog and in the interview I had with The Naturist Page, I started these shops to spread my message. The message about naturism. To get rid of the taboo around it. The message about body acceptance. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. But now, at the end of this year, I’m closing the curtains.


I have several reasons for that and I’ll try to explain why. One of them is that my message is spread by my blogs now. I love writing about how naturism effects my life and how I experience it at different locations. And according to the reactions here on WordPress and Twitter, you people like reading about it. I…

Farewell Summer of 2016 | The Naturist Page


14804764_10154349734194724_1920858487_nWell, another summer is over and we can’t complain too much. It was warm up to today. As fall temperatures will settle in tomorrow, to stay. We find ourselves itching to seek out to the FQN/FCN events for winter. This way we may enjoy naturism outside my home. Check out your local Federation/Club/Campgrounds for winter events. You’d be surprised what they may have to offer with indoor events and activities. Us living in Montreal, we have indoor events such as swimming, aqua-fit, tennis, badminton, jogging, sauna, jacuzzi, Christmas dinner, the sugar shack, and other various activities within the community. So, turn them frowns upside down and think positive this winter! Make the best of it, you also could make more naturist friends in this manner =)
