I've been going to naturist beaches, on and off, for over thirty years. I never really considered myself a Naturist, though, just someone who prefers not to wear clothes. My wife of 27 years, a confirmed textile, is reasonably accepting of my occasional visits to Alton and to Studland or Eastney but never comes with me. I am also lucky that work takes all around Europe and has given me the opportunity to experience French beaches and many German Spas….I love German spas! I am a BN member and also often on Naturist Corner.
