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…

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.

The end of an era


Sorry to see them go! =(

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…

[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

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 =)
