Many photos, on this site and others, especially of women, (usually) receive positive complimentary comments. On the face of it, this is a good thing. One posts a photo, the person/people in the photo are pleased to receive positive feedback and everyone’s happy. However, there is a school of thought which takes offense to even … Read morePhoto compliments or offensive leching?
The alpine sun blazed down as we set off across the bridge over the Rißbach river. I stripped off almost immediately and stuffed my clothes into my rucksack. Polly, the Collie, and Susi, the Pekinese, scampered about looking for sticks and sniffs. Although Sandra and I had been on a couple of hikes together already, … Read moreA naked hike over the Vördersberg
MrJeeper: I don’t understand having trans-gendered people on the site or even having it as a choice of sex on the profiles. It is not “NATURAL” in the least bit to be taking hormones to become something you aren’t. Richard Foley: I can see where you’re coming from, Bob, and sympathise, but we try not … Read moreStanding up to righteous bullying.
We’d set off for a local hike, both the dogs in the van, me driving naked as usual, and Sandra as passenger, trundling along through a local town, just outside Munich, chatting and although watching the road, probably going a little quicker than we should have been. All of a sudden, out steps a policeman … Read moreDriving naked into a police speed-trap
A World Naked Bike Ride book extract: During the fight to win the vote the bicycle became not only a tool but also a symbol for the emancipation of women. Even while the police were arresting suffragette women, fully clothed from wrist to ankle and cycling around the cities, the protests continued. The success of … Read moreCivil rights and the WNBR bicycle.
A World Naked Bike Ride book extract: Public participation and media coverage are both critical elements within any World Naked Bike Ride. Indeed, the presence of the public at a WNBR is essential for the event to be in any real way effective. Furthermore the public need not just to be on hand at the … Read moreWNBR public participation and media coverage.

An extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book: One of the clearest messages one gets from looking at images of people participating in the ride is that they are all enjoying themselves immensely, as are the public too, of course, and this is clear to see from the photographs presented in this book. Certainly … Read moreA clear message from the WNBR
An extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book: Running your car in an enclosed space, such as a garage, will surely kill you in a very short period of time. It is not so very difficult to extrapolate this fact to the much larger natural environment of the atmosphere layer which we inhabit on … Read moreAn extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book:
An extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book: Oil is also used to produce the very food we eat, even if we don’t eat the oil directly. Think about what fuels the tractors to plough the ground and manage the ground during the year: manuring, seeding, weeding, harvesting. Then consider where we get the … Read moreAn extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book:
An extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book: Regardless of the many possible answers to the question of what use a photo will be put to, or who will see you, it is important to keep in mind that the WNBR was created with the express intention of attracting media attention to the event … Read moreA WNBR book extract.
Motivated by Ernest’s excellent Monopod review I’d like to provide a short review of the device I commonly use. For stabilizing my compact digital camera I find the camera-clamp from Langhans Konstruktion GMBH the perfect solution. The camera thread, which fits all standard tripod mounts, swivels cleverly within the jaws of the clamp. Combined with … Read moreProduct review – indispensible camera clamp
( Please note that this is slightly tongue-in-cheek – for those few among us who might otherwise take this a little too seriously 😉 ) I am happy to join with you today in what may go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of man. Five score years ago, … Read moreI have a dream!
Naked folk across the world decry the puritan censorship of mainstream socialmedia networks, yet continue to use them because of a paucity of options. Now there is a true alternative, designed especially with naked people in mind.
This is a place where
You’d think that people with a common interest, such as naturism, naked cycle rides, naked hiking, naked protests, and the like, would be able to support one another’s endeavours and projects. Instead, there seems to be a petty mindset reminiscent of town council meetings full of jobsworths. The prevailing attitude appears to be that if … Read moreFUD in naked communities
The internet is full of photos and blogs and posts and tweets, of naked people, naturists and protestors, art events, naked hiking tours, etc. It always surprises me how many of these are cross-posted from “somewhere else”. The *original* photographer or participant is not so often to be seen. Many of these are of course … Read moreWhose pictures are they?
According to BN magazine, a new naked hiking trail has been officially opened in Switzerland. In the very same country where a specific county banned naked hiking several years ago. Wonders will never cease 😀
Here's the first paragraph of the http://www.naktiv.net/mission-statement as a reminder of why we're here:
The Nook is provided as a safe place for people to post Naked and Active content, to share both images and our opinions as far and w
I was accused recently of being an anti-gay dictator, on the Naktiv site ( http://www.naktiv.net/Naktiv site ), and I'm very tired of this inane charge so perhaps I need to explain this in short words that even the straight-haters can understand. I was molested by
People often arrive at a nudist-friendly website, such as Naktiv, skim read and agree with the mission-statement, want to share their own content, and then get upset that other people can see it. At a very basic level, this is crazy. The Naktiv site is here, by definition to promote the idea that nudity is … Read morePosting content on the internet and then marking it private?
Many nudist/naturist websites have a team of moderators to ensure the content complies with the site rules. Naturally, the Naktiv site has it’s own rules too. When somebody posts something which is “non-compliant”, there can be cries of “off with his head!” (it’s usually a guy posting something inappropriate), or “that must be deleted!”. These … Read moreSticks or carrots?
<a href="/Naktiv site">the Naktiv site</a> has a gender imbalance, (approx. 85% male, 10% female, 5% other), which might reflect all sorts of societal issues to do with nudity, but also online interaction too. The questions are: is this actually a
I made a comment recently about how “the staid traditional club nudist venue is expiring”. I’d like to clarify that this was not intended to be especially negative towards clubs as a naked venue per se. A nudist club is equivalent to a football club, an activity shared by others, and a place to share … Read moreNudist clubs and public attitudes

This is an open reminder to people that the Naktiv site is NOT a traditional naturist site, although we have many naturist members. The Naktiv site IS a safe place where we can discuss issues relating to nudity, (and mostly anything else), and a place where it’s ok to post naked imagery which might INCLUDE … Read moreA context nudge on the Nook
