Doesn't Sri Lanka have roughly the same culture as India? In India, sadhus are known to go around totally naked. I would imagine that if entire villages can come out to meet the sadhu and to worship him (as I have seen in documentaries), people would be naturally more accepting of nudity. India is a...

No, it's a common mistake many people seem to make. But Sri Lankan culture, although influenced by India, is very unique. Indian "sub-continent" does not equal "India" alone. There are no sadhus walking around nude here.. you are thinking about the Digambaras, who have nothing to to do with Buddhism...

You have to be very careful about what I'm going to say here. You have to weigh it carefully and decide for yourself in the light of your own knowledge of the people around you. Here is my advice which has worked beautifully for me:

When I decided to join the Taiwan Naturist Association one weekend, ...

Thank you so much, your approach is both inspirational and truly commendable! Smile I think it depends on the personality of the person as much as the nudist in them. Myself, I don't like social media a lot (I'm not even on Facebook), don't care for posing for photos much (clothed or nude) and have a fai...

As I have said,you must weigh carefully what I said and decide for yourself what is suitable. Only you can decide. A friend of mine is of southern Indian origin which is perhaps closest to a Sri Lankan in culture. He's a naturist but his wife doesn't know a thing. He says it can lead to a divorce if...

I have to wonder how long your friend can keep a marriage going and expect honesty & respect from his wife when he is constantly deceiving her & disrespecting her.

One might ask who is disrespecting whom.

I doubt whether when they got married, he had been a practicing naturist and expected she could be dead against that. Only if both, he was and is deceiving her, else he's successfully hiding something from her.
That is not the same: I don't adhere to a philoso...

In an Asian country having obtained its now by well over 90% observed Theravada Buddhism from Sri Lanka more than 8 centuries ago, huge 'little white lies' in marriage are expected.

I think that's not genetical. I see Buddhist avoidance of confrontations. I'd be surprised if in Sri Lanka and —if that...

I'm all for openness and frankness. It makes life a lot easier too. Not only do my wife and family know, everyone who knows me knows I'm a naturist too and have access to my photos which I post all over the internet. The good thing about being open is the freedom. I can never be blackmailed. LOL

Your wife didn't divorce you. She probably would never have married your friend. And you not the woman he married.

It takes a good kind of quiet courage to advocate for something good that is not seen that way by the culture you live in. It is the best way to increase acceptance of nudity and nudism, though, and it sounds like it's working out well for you. You have gotten your friends, church, and community to ...
