My now mixed textile & nudist Facebook account. | Scott RedCloud

June 24, 2015 in Uncategorized

As I wonder what all my textile friends are now thinking after the announcement I did this week by declaring that I was a Naturist/Nudist — I wonder what they are thinking of all the new friends I’ve been adding from my old Scott RedCloud account. This is coming from someone who never just adds just anyone, so new adds to my account are rare. I only add people I can connect with mentally. Then all of a sudden I’ve added a little over 30 people so far and the innocent textile account I once had, now being overrun with nudists. I giggle at this because they are now seeing a whole new side to me they never ever knew about.

On a mature level, I will need to be careful what I post on what is now my mixed textile and nudists account. To slowly get them use to my lifestyle and educate them by debunking what they ‘think’ or ‘stereotype’ are nudists and show them by example and in a respectful manner about true Naturism/Nudism. To do this, I won’t be posting in your face posts with images or liking friends photos with my now mixed account. I’m going to need to start slowly so they can get use to the change and truly see what the lifestyle really is all about. You won’t succeed in this by posting a nude photo of yourself and putting it in an ‘in your face’ way. You’ll only produce a negative vibe or feedback that way.

So far I’ve been working on my mixed Facebook profile with body acceptance posts and other things in that manner. I’m not expecting them to understand the lifestyle overnight so to speak. However, it’s going to take some time before I can go about posting as I did with my Scott RedCloud account. So in the meantime, I have made a public page named, “Scott RedCloud” that you may follow me there. As I respect my textile friends and family by doing this, I feel they will in the long run respect me for my way of bringing it to them slowly. Who knows, maybe.. just maybe I’ll have one of them message me and want to learn more — or better yet, would like to try it with someone they know like me for a foundation to work from.

Well, I got fed up the other day. Fed up with not only Facebook’s rule forcing people to use their real name but fed up of keeping my lifestyle hidden from my textile friends and family. The other night I posted this on my textile Facebook account:

“I might lose friends and family but I have an announcement to make. I’m gonna know who my real friends and family are with this. Remember how I have been to you the past 30 years to you. Since I’m tired of Facebook’s censorship and their rule to have a real name, I’m a Naturist / Nudist. Much like clothed people we live our lives the same way but clothes free. I believe that clothes are only needed when it’s cold or the weather does not permit. Non-sexual nudity is my way of life. I will not post like in the past of nude related posts but you need to know that I’m a non sexual nudist and believe in being who I am and wish to stop hiding my way of life. Please do not disrespect my way of life. As a nudist we don’t mind if your clothed. Respect the fact of the matter we rather live clothes free. I’d never judge you, I ask you don’t mine.”

The reactions I got were not what I expected. Rather than people sparking jokes or receiving negative feedback, I got quite the opposite reactions. People were saying things like, “You’ll always be my friend and I got your back”, “You go!”, ” I don’t understand the concept exactly, but we are family so I don’t judge. I just think that as long as nobody gets hurt, it’s all good!”, “this are your choice and I respect, live and let live!!”, “there is so much more to you than meets the eye!”, “A few of my bestie’s are naturists and seem to be more at peace within the group.” and “lol awhile ago i was like “does this guy ever put on a shirt” and now i know!”

So for the rest of you when you feel like you’re ready to break the news to family and friends, Just remember that you’ll truly know who your real friends and family are should you decide to make that announcement.

Dancing in the rain | The Naturist Page

June 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

A memory sparked up and thought i’d share my experiences with you. I believe I was 17 years old. I was at the Lasalle waterfront — some 200m due east of where the surfers like to catch some river rapid waves during the summer. it was about 35°c with a humidity of 43°c and sunny. It started to get windy while one of my exes and I were just spending some quality time together. for the meantime, we didn’t know it yet, a storm was brewing and we were facing west when the storm was coming from the east.

Munching on my cheetos and sipping water, I was sharing my bag of chips with her overlooking the river just listening to all the nature around us and laughter of others in the distance. It wasn’t long after suddenly the sun hid behind some clouds when it was then I turned to see a shelf like wall cloud approach. The system I was looking at was massive and you’d look at this cloud and it went (from what it looked like) from 4,000ft to 15,000ft right up in the air with a shelf cloud.

Thats when we decided to pack up and begin our way back west towards the bus stop 2km away where we’d take home. It did not take long when loud thunder started and ALL HELL broke loose! With lightning and thunder all around us we soon found ourselves engulfed with rain so hard that it was practically zero visibility and we ended up being so wet that we both agreed that it was pointless to run for shelter because we could not get any more wet than we already were. Since the rain wasn’t cold we just enjoyed the rain as it pounded down that we could no longer see street cars or anyone else for that matter.

Thats when I decided to strip down naked and began running and screaming at the top of my lungs! “WAHOOOOOO!!!!!!!” Shocked but laughing hard, my ex I could hear yelling out at me, “You nut case!!” — It was not too long after as I was running back toward her, I could see she too was disrobing to join in on the fun I was having. I guess she realized by looking around it was zero visibility & seeing how much fun I was having she joined me. Racing across and having a ‘tag your it’ kinda childrens fun, we stopped and just danced in the rain like nobody was watching. It was a really great experience for her — even though she isn’t a nudist that kinda broke the ice for her to try nudism. We never got sexual during this storm but she seemed very comfortable with me in a public park.

As the rain calmed down and we began to see the streets a little more by the min, we dressed and talked about the whole thing at the bus stop. she told me she never did that before and usually would never have done that until she seen the enthusiasm i had and fun that made her basically say, ‘ok! screw this, hes having too much fun for me not to join in on this!” I told her only then I was a nudist and she was actually really cool with it. She soon after wanted to know a lot more about how she said, “This Nudism life style”.

But that will be for a new blog at another time. =)

#‎MyNameIs Facebook’s “Fake Name” Policy

June 12, 2015 in Uncategorized

On June the 4th, my account on Facebook was disabled due to their ‘fake name’ policy. This policy is to be quite honest is messed up! — I don’t know the number of people affected, however I’m sure it’s in the thousands or even more! People should not have to use their real name on social media. There was a big protest outside of Facebook on June 1st with Drag Queens, and others describing how not everyone wants to use their real name on social media to protect their identity and choose have a different name other than their real one.

It’s a huge problem in privacy. There are so many options in facebook based on privacy to help protect yourself, yet, the biggest privacy of them all is the ability to use an alias when people have a secret lives such as Drag Queens, Nudists, etc who do not want their private lives exposed to the public risking their jobs, family, friends, etc.

After loosing my account I not only lost all my friends from facebook, I lost my Facebook Pages, (The Naturist Page, Oka’s Naturist Beach, WNBR – Montreal). I’ve also lost a hand full of Facebook Groups as well. Then, in a blink of an eye, thousands of followers lost! It’s an outrage! I tried calling Facebook and it’s impossible to talk to someone in person or even leave a message… even if I was able to leave a message, i’m sure they would not call me back.

There must be a way to make Facebook change this stupid and breach in privacy policy to allow to use an alias for their Facebook account name.

The hash tag going around social media is #‎MyNameIs and i’m seeing so many angry people. I’m writing this blog so I can contact media in hopes to put the pressure on Facebook the policy. I hope something can be done so everyone can get their account back.

I’m no writer … yet! | The Naturist Page

May 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

I’m really trying on working on my writing skills very much so because I have so much to say but I find I lack the skills necessary to become pro at the moment. But i’m trying my best and find by writing blogs and getting an insight from my wife and followers i’m slowly improving.

I’m no journalist, writer, book writer so im going along by writing blogs to help improve my way of writing. So far I find it is improving but still needs work. One positive thing I have picked up is understanding the method of describing situations that as merely thoughts in my mind to be able to help you re-live the event in my eyes. That is important! I know that now. but if you have any friendly criticism to help me write better, i’m open for friendly criticism.

I look forward to provide you the best experiences in a newbie writer like me and hope that I can better improve your reading when it comes to my blogs. I do know that some of you love to read my blogs even for what they are now and I thank you so very much and hope you continue to give me support and incentive to write more. Thank you!

Growing up | The Naturist Page

May 15, 2015 in Uncategorized

I never was completely accepting to social nudity. My family always was always supportive for the nude life and I was too until I hit 10 or 11 when it became harder to socialize with peers and discuss our lives at home and what we had in common.. my peers would talk about their vacations and trips all the time and they would always talk about their experiences and its when it occurred to me that they spent it with clothes on by the way they told me their story. At one point in had to question why they never disrobed when how they explained it was very hot and humid outside.

It was only then I discovered that not everyone was like me and my family. upon asking such a question I felt like a lone wolf struggling to find an appropriate answer to tell them without feeling like a lone sheep in the herd of animals giving you the deer-in-headlights look. By then it was kinda too late and when the roll of questions rolled in like a super-cell thunder storm came and I wasn’t ready for… a combonation of giggling and question of concern derived just like any textile would ask, what do you mean naked? — Naked!? — are you serious? … etc etc etc… What could I answer, I was just about as confused as they were and needless to say I felt like I said enough that if I tried to explain things further I would only be digging myself deeper to a point where I’d be left flabbergasted on what to say next without the worry of being feeling like im the random person who felt like the odd-ball of the group to have no clue what to say next without burring myself in deeper than I already was. So basically I left it as it was and eventually it blew over after a few years.

It was only when I was 15 when i discovered myself said that the hell with what people think or say what my lifestyle is, im here now and this is what I believe in and this is how I feel is right when I did not give two shits what others say and only in 2011 when I decided to start The Naturist Page to help educate and promote Naturism when it has far more health benefits than being clothed. I do hope that I have influenced others to take my lead to help educate and teach others that nudity isnt sexual… its completely natural and we need your help to educate others as well

World Naturist Day | The Naturist Page

May 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

World Naturist Day was first celebrated on June 4th 2006. Though, depending where you’re from, the date will be different depending on your geological location. For instance, if you’re from the southern hemisphere, the celebration of WND would probably be sometime in December — as where the northern hemisphere tends to have these celebrations sometime in June. According to the INF, the UK will be having their celebration on June 28th. Western Cape Naturists Association had theirs on December 14th 2014.

Why is it celebrated you might ask yourself and for that, the reason may be quite obvious. World Naturist Day is celebrated in the practice of social nudity to advocate uplift self-respect for ones self and the respect of others and to the environment. Naturists believe in a clothes free lifestyle environment among like minded people around them.

Wait… what!? Did I just see what I think I just seen!? | Scott RedCloud

May 5, 2015 in Uncategorized

The story takes place 6 years go on a hot and humid night — Perhaps the one of the hottest day around 48°c and hottest overnight low of about 35°c. It was about 9:30pm when I decided to run to the store to buy a few beer to take to the river with me. I had no real plans over at the river other than getting naked and enjoying my beer by the river and maybe bike ride naked along the river side where they usually lock up by 11pm and nobody goes there.

I arrived at the river at around 10:30pm — Just in time before they close the bridge at 11pm. With my bike headlight and helmet head-lamp fully charged because over there it’s pitch dark and biking through the forest or the service road there are no lights. I got to a nice spot by the river, disrobed and took a swim in the warm river. That summer it was very hot for about a month and a half that the river was no where near cold since I just biked 25 km at about 25-30 kph pace that I was sweating hot. The river was very welcoming after that ride. After about 15min in the water I sat on a rock and enjoyed my beer puffing on a cig or two.

After some time, it was around 2:45am when I started my bike ride — still in the buff and arrived at the locked access to the bridge. Analyzing the situation I discovered the way they locked the fence. However my bike was not skinny enough to fit through the gap. I eventually found a way around it some 500m away via the construction yard that manages the maintenance of the Champlain Bridge. The lights were on in the construction yard and I was a little sceptical on going through there because I didn’t know if security or workers were still around. I just stayed low in relatively the same area to watch and see if anyone was there. The place was deserted so I sneaked my naked butt though the yard… it was only halfway through the construction yard when I realized that there were cameras. I just told myself, well they already seen my naked butt now… no time to stop and get dressed in case they send someone. I made it to the mouth of the bridge that is closed over night and I was scott-free to cross the 2 km bridge.

Crossing the bridge… I guess if I didn’t know it then, I knew it now. This bridge is home to THOUSANDS of seagulls who sleep here un-disturbed. The bridge being locked, it’s no wonder. Riding through if you could see what I could see you would be amazed! I’m riding through a MASSIVE flock of gulls. The Seagulls were all over this bridge taking up every ounce of space on the road — so as I’m getting close they takeoff flying, fanning out as if your riding a bike and you hit shallow water the water fans away from you in both directions — but then as you keep going they fan back as you look behind you back to their original spot! It was freaky! When I reached the Nuns Island side, the fence there was locked as well, but I was able to fit my bike through the gap without a problem.

On Nuns Island side now, I knew this city was pretty active at night and chose to put my shorts on at this time just to get to Montreal. Riding through Nuns Island I noticed how much of a ghost town it is at this hour, it was about 3:15 ~ 3:30am. I reached the bridge to Montreal and told myself — Hey… biking here I realized there was a problem with the lighting up of the bike path between Lachine and Verdun. That’s when I decided it, I was going to bike home from the Bridge to Verdun to Lachine! I just told myself to keep an eye out for any police and such. After all, I did not want to offend anyone. It wasn’t long after I got in to Verdun when I passed by the baseball field and with my head lights on — on coming people can not really make anything out whos coming toward them on a bike … especially when your helmet light is aimed at them. Thats just what I did and one guy passed by me and then when I looked back, he slowed down and turned around to change direction and go the same direction as me — enough to say, “Wait… what!? Did I just see what I think I just seen!?” He tried to follow pace with me but I was too fast for him and soon lost him in the darkness of the night sky. When I reached LaSalle, there is this spot where surfers like to hang out and surf in the river before the LaSalle bird sanctuary. Two girls seen me and as I passed them their jaw dropped and soon after I could hear the faint whistle at me as I kept steaming down the bike path. Getting closer to Lachine I spotted police passing through but they never noticed me and I was surprised they didn’t see me so I kept on going.

I finally reached the bottom of 18th ave next to the water front and stopped at a canoe dock to put my clothes on before the last trek home.. I did not know how to feel, I was excited, amazed and mind blown all at the same time! I just biked 20km through Montreal naked and was never caught!

All I can say is that I was very lucky and If I were to try that again, I’d love to but I feel that it would probably not go down as easy as I had it! I was VERY lucky!

April 15th 2015 – First day of the season | Scott RedCloud

April 15, 2015 in Uncategorized

Woke this morning was trying to decide if I should go to the river until when I checked noticed the forecast was going to be 13°c … I told myself it could not possibly be nice enough for getting that all over tan started. Then I noticed the wind speed and found that It was going to be less than 10kph and no clouds! I said to myself, what the heck… It also gave me a reason to go on a long bike ride. If worse came to worse I was doing it for the ride at least.

Left the house around 10:30am with my shoes, jeans, sweater and vest on; it was pretty chilly out. along the way to the river which was 25km away I spotted some angry Canadian geese attacking for either territory or for a mate. They are vicious this time of year. I also spotted in Lasalle, a sugar shack buggy pulled by a horse with kids in the buggy. At this time I checked Facebook because I invited my friend Happy Bare and wanted to see if he was planning on meeting me there. He said he would go tomorrow when it was warmer.

When I arrived at the river, I was surprised to see the water level was remarkably lower than normal. Last year you could not walk down by the river because the water was very high. So trekking along in a mix of beach rocks, snow and Ice to the spot I usually go was very easy. Happy Bare wanted to know the water level so I gave him a call to let him know; little did I know he must have changed his mind because before I knew it, He said he was getting some things together and coming to the river and he’d be 20min! Ha! I knew he’d change his mind! Before he arrived I did test the theory of whether or not it was nice out enough to disrobe and take some sun. The breeze was a little cold when I tried… but then I thought to myself — Their are a lot of large rocks around here to try and attempt to hide from the chilly breeze. The Sun was very warm on the skin and the ground to the feet was very warm as well. It was just the breeze that was the issue. Sure enough it was the perfect idea to be next to a rock when it was after all, 12°c at the time.

Alex finally arrived and enjoyed two to two and a half hours of sun. Within the time we spent in the summer we took some photos braving the elements and standing in the snow, I layed in the snow for another photo and I even took a dip to my waste in 2°c icy river water! BURRRR! I cant speak for everyone here in Canada but I just can not pass up a challenge and thats why I did it. lol

Driving home was hard on my legs because they were already sore from the past rides I was doing before the total trip there and back was 50km. The workout was so worth it with the bonus that I was actually able to share some good time in the sun with a great friend!

Gymnophobia | The Naturist Page

March 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

Gymnophobia is a fear (phobia) of nudity. Gymnophobics experience anxiety from nudity, even if they realize their fear is irrational. They may worry about seeing others naked, being seen naked, or both. Their fear may stem from a general anxiety about sexuality, from a fear that they are physically inferior, or from a fear that their nakedness leaves them exposed and unprotected.

Break free from being afraid of your own body and the fear of seeing others. Straight up nudity isn’t wrong, it’s completely natural. It’s only the Church, the government and the media who portrays nudity as something sexual. they are to blame. Humans have come a long way in history and guess what, most of us (depending how far north or south you are) the cold climates may not have had it as easy living in the nude. For the warmer climates most tribes or lifestyles lived nude and they are the best examples of how a natural culture without clothes can be seen as non-sexual.

Over time, society started wearing and making clothes but it was not because of body shame. It was to get warm when it was cold. It’s the church, government and the media who have a bad knack at relating nudity with sexualism. Just remember they are two completely different things and should not be related to one and other.

Don’t fear nudity, It’s actually a lot more healthy for you than you think. Good for the body, soul and mind. Once you start to live nude you will never want to go back. Think of all the money you also can save without buying expensive clothes, detergents, fabric softener, cling-frees, bleach etc etc etc. After all what is the difference if it’s a foot, a hand, a breast or a penis.. their just body parts.

Life is possible in a natural, nude fashion without making it sexual.

To Cover or Not to Cover at The Door | The Naturist Page

February 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

There are many questions about what to do when it comes to getting that knock on the door and to ask yourself — to cover up or just swing the door wide open with nothing but a but smile on. Well, you are free to do it the way you like. However, if you’d like to be a respectful Naturist/Nudist then I would like to take the time and explain in my own opinion the options about this topic.

First you need to weigh out your situation. By that I mean if you live in a neighbourhood where nudism is completely normal. Then why not. But remember, Just don’t go swinging open the door before checking the peek hole or similar. The last thing you want is to open the door to the girl scouts and have them drop their cookies they are selling screaming as they run away disturbed by what they saw. Alternatively, I personally keep a pair of shorts next to my desk… or a house coat on the hook on the front door so when I look in the peek hole and it’s somebody I do not know, I don’t want to offend them so I cover up. If it were up to me I would answer it un-covered. There is a fine line to nudism when it comes to this topic but I certainly would not like to offend someone. One should respect the fact that not everyone is comfortable with nudism and have an understanding.

When I do meet someone for the first time, I do take the time to ask them if they are comfortable with nudity and if it offends them. Most of the time they say they are ok with it so the initial shock isn’t as an impact if you never warned them prior. moreover, add a sign on your door and write something on the lines for them to ring the door bell if they are comfortable with nudity and if they are not, to knock on the door.

The Main Hick Up In Society (Personal Opinion) | The Naturist Page

January 15, 2015 in Uncategorized

The main hick up in society is the textile parents who teach their kids to be ashamed of their bodies and that it’s not ok to be naked in front of others — even their own siblings! They teach their kids to be afraid to be “Natural” and make it a bad thing. Seriously, in my opinion this has got to change and we need to teach our kids that nudity is normal and natural and not teach them that nudity is an abnormal thing and just because there is a naked body that it automatically means its sexual. I grew up as a naturist and growing up in school (before high school) the min someone mentioned “boob, penis, vagina…etc etc… the whole room is in giggles … all but me, I didn’t find it funny.. what was so funny about that? I grew up in a family that taught me the respects of ones own body and the respect of others. I understand now why they giggled and laughed because they grew up in a textile environment. If the world (long shot here..) would raise their kids the way I was, I think their would be alot more socially accepted non-sexual nudity.

Simple Message to The Media and TV Networks | The Naturist Page

January 2, 2015 in Uncategorized

It seems the media and the TV networks go by the slogan, “sex sells” and anytime there is just about any naked event or segment you tend to blow up things to make it sound more sexual than it really is. I’m writing to you because Naturists like me are tired of hearing and reading in the tabloids of events for simple non-sexual nudity being blown up to something it’s not. Understand that straight up nudity and sexual-ism are completely different. Associating nudity and sexual-ism is like comparing drivers and alcohol. they are two different things. everyone is a driver… doesn’t mean they are being alcoholics about driving. the same goes for nudity. simple non-sexual nudity does not automatically mean we’re being sexual about it.

The time has come where the media and TV networks to understand this and start learning the difference. Stop making yourselves look bad by doing articles titles like MTL Blog did for the GoTopless Day, “Tam Tams was invaded by Boobies” that just down right rude. I could go on and on about media titles but I won’t because it’s not worth my time.

If you’re going to slap a title on your story make sure your educated enough when it comes to simple non-sexual nudity and recognize the difference.

Four hotdogs to go | Scott RedCloud

December 12, 2014 in Uncategorized

So, I went to “La Belle Provence”, a restaurant here in Quebec and ordered two steamy hot-dogs with only mustard for Amber and two textile hot-dogs to go… The casher looked at me puzzled with my order and asked me, “textile hotdogs?” I replied back saying oh I’m sorry.. two all-dressed hotdogs. she just looked at me in confusion why I called them textile. I guess it’s a nudist thing she had to be to understand. lol

FQN: Christmas Dinner & Spa (Chalet de Boise)

December 9, 2014 in Uncategorized

I’m sitting here writing this without Internet, TV or phone service and well I guess I have time now to write this blog after all, no choice lol. My friend Happy Bare, Amber and I went to the Christmas dinner together by car. We arrived around 4:30pm and it was cold at the spa. We seen cars parked in the parking lot and thought we were early until we went inside to get our raffle tickets for the draw for the gifts on the table that would later be picked later on.

Turns out we were not alone after all when we went in the back of the resort, outside were about 12 people already in the hot tub. and some in the sauna. That’s where I found Francois, the president of the FQN. Since I just arrived, still having all my winter coat on and all I walked in to the sauna to greet him. We talked for about 5min and by the time I got out of that sauna I felt like I lost about 2lbs already! Glad to be out of the sauna with my clothes still on, We disrobed in the changing room and made out way to the beautiful dining room that had a iron wood stove-heater that which at that point, most of us were huddled around for warmth. we picked the table near the heater and one of us decided to put more wood in to get the fire bigger to warm the place up. Plop went in the cut log and a few of us quickly stepped away as the big embers flew out nearly singeing some sensitive parts! No wiener roast at this dinner tonight, It is just not going to happen!

The entree for the Christmas dinner was a leek and vegetable soup with a dinner roll and crackers. it was quite tasty. Next was the actual dinner with a mini meat pie, veggies, baby potatoes, turkey and cranberries. During this course of the meal it was time to call out the numbers on the raffle tickets. The first number was called and to my surprise I was the first one! They called two more people as well and we were 3 to play this game to determined who has first pick at the gifts on the table. There was Italian wine, bath sets, chocolate, skin products and other various items to choose from. The object to this game was to place a coin on the back of your elbow with your arm bent and elbow pointing in front of you. Balance the coin and then with the same arm, grab the coin before it hits the floor. the one who catches it more often with 3 tries gets first pick. the first women was first and did catch it 1 out of 3 tries. The second woman missed all three times. When it was my turn I caught the first and third time but missed the second. I won, and choose the bottle of wine.

At this time, I went outside for a cig in that -20c with nothing but my coat and my towel wrapped around me for the fastest cig I’ve ever had! While I was smoking they had called the number for Happy Bare and he won the chocolate truffles with a game of charades. For desert, we all had a black forest cake with a cheery on top. I love cherries, I ate that first and then devoured the cake. The Evening went on and we had coffee or tea when another game for couples only started. The object to this game was there was an apple per couple (there was 2 couples) with a fork in them. You had 30seconds for each couple to eat as much of the apple without your hands while someone was holding the apple up in the air with the fork. Well, if you could have seen this game.. they each looked like when you put a cube of bloodworms in an aquarium of hungry fish trying to eat everything before the other fish do! Hilarious!

I would like to thank Happy Bare for driving us there and for a pleasant and fun evening!

Montreal’s Unofficial Nude Beach | The Naturist Page

December 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

I do not know if I would want to call it an unofficial nude beach as of yet, but over the years and especially this year alone, there has been a lot more traffic coming to this neck of the woods; which for now will be in a disclosed location. On average there are 5 – 15 people who come and bare all. However, I must say that this place is still far from being a naturist beach. The reason I say this is there are a mix of people coming here (all men & mostly gay) who like to get their jollies off. I have never seen a any women go to this spot ever. Others, ignore them and come there to sunbathe and skinny-dip in the river just because Oka’s Naturist Beach is either too far or costs money they do not have. I often wonder if one day would come and there is clean-up of the wankers & more people will come and turn this place into a second official nude beach.

Sunbathing | The Naturist Page

December 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

I’m not certain if this happens to everybody, I’m going to tell you based on my personal experiences on how I feel is the best and more importantly the safest method of getting that all over tan without over doing it and ending up burnt. By the middle of summer you might not need sunblock and may never burn.

Early May was the first day of the season I began to work on my porky white skin from being cooped up indoors all winter and my skin could not see the sun. It’s very important early in the season to bring sunscreen at this stage because if your pale like I was, you’ll burn a lot faster. Depending on your skin type, you can be in the sun for 4-5 hours by applying sunscreen every 45min. (If your using SPF-45) You’ll know when it’s time to get out of the sun when you press lightly for a few seconds somewhere on your body; when you let go your finger, you should see white-ish contrasting to red. the bigger the difference, the more likely that it is time for you to get out of the sun and allow your skin to heal. Don’t tan this long the next day, in fact let your skin heal the rest of the day and the day after as well. Tan like this with break periods throughout spring and beginning of summer.

By the end of June and beginning of July, I finally had my base tan & did not require the use of sunscreen anymore. Throughout July and by the time August came, I came to the conclusion that I could not get any darker than I was and it became for me, IMPOSSIBLE to burn and get darker. My skin now had it’s natural defense against the sun’s rays.

Summer is now at it’s end and lately it’s been too cold to be outside clothes-free. I’m hoping that there will be a few more days in the future that I can go out in the sun before snow falls. Maybe Indian Summer will be warm enough for the last few days before Winter.

Nudity Tears Down A Wall In Communist Vietnam | Adventures of The Nude Writer

December 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

The Summer of my 16th year on this planet I went on a mission trip to Vietnam. But since Christian Missionaries are not allowed in Vietnam, I was teaching English on a 6 month work visa. See, nothing illegal there! A group of six Brits, Australians, and I spent four months teaching English at private learning centers and working with street children to teach them skills and hopefully give them a better future. We were in the middle of Ho Chi Minh City in District 3. Our British sponsors paid to have us live in a very nice house complete with our own driver and house keeper. We each had our own room with air conditioning. Which was nice when the temperatures in the summer rarely ever get below 40C/105F. And that is in the shade!
I could be nude as much as I wanted in my room, but I wanted to get some sun as well. Not very easy in an over populated Communist city.

My room had a balcony which was great to sit on and drink ice coffee, but the series of windows that all had a perfect view did not make nudity very easy. The chances of someone and their entire family spotting me was a guarantee. Any time I sat on the balcony everyone across the alley would go out on their balcony or press up against their window to see the white girl. I guess I was their favorite show.

The roof of the building wasn’t any better. Apparently people in other buildings could sense I was up there and they would move to their own roofs to continue the show. Not to mention our house keeper hung the laundry out there. I just had to face it. There was no way I was getting naked outside.

After two weeks I formed a silent relationship with the women in the building directly across from mine. It was both their workplace and their home. They spent the day sewing clothes at a line of sewing machines and slept on the roof at night. This is very common in Vietnam. Many people work at home or live at work. We would wave and smile at each-other. They would play with their hair and touch their faces as a way of telling me they thought I was beautiful. I would smile and nod to thank them. I think they thought I was funny as well.

It was also around this time that I finally figured out a solution to my lack of nudity problem. I learned that my house had an upper roof. From the roof patio there was a bamboo ladder that went up to a narrow walk way and over a small wall to another patio. The floor was composed of the left over dolphin tile used to make my shower. Standing up there, I was higher than all the other buildings nearby. Nobody was looking down at me and I felt there was enough of an angle from the neighboring buildings that I would remain unseen. It was perfect!

It was night and two weeks had already been too long for me not to be naked outside, so I stripped and looked over the city nude. It was a beautiful night and very little light made it up there so even though I could see the flashes of welding torches in the distance from men working at night, I was confident they couldn’t see me. Only problem is that it was night, and I wanted to get a tan.

The next day was Saturday and my teammates were off being tourists. I hate being a tourist, so I stayed back. Besides, I had to get naked!

I could see the women were sitting at their sewing machines as I climbed the ladder to my private spot. I hoped they wouldn’t notice me. Again, this is a communist country and you never know who is going to report you to the government in exchange for favors. Even if you know people, you still have to be careful. However, I think I made it all the way up without being spotted.

I took off my clothes, lay out my towel, and laid down on the dolphin tile. For future reference, this is not a great idea. Dolphin tile, although pretty, is very hard and gets rather hot in the sun. But, as I’ve said before, I am stubborn and I don’t let much get between me and my nudity. I lay there and felt the 40C/105F Heat on my skin. It felt marvelous! It must have been about 20 minutes when the heat started getting to me. I reached for my water bottle, and felt nothing. My eyes were closed so I groped around for it. Still nothing. I sat up a bit and saw my bottle next to the bamboo ladder. I had left it there when I put it down to balance myself at the top. I was really thirsty and I didn’t want to pass out and roast to never be found again. I needed that bottle. It want that far away, I could just crawl over the small wall, grab my bottle, and crawl back. I’d be quick. Nobody would notice me.

Over I went. I stayed low. I made no noise. I grabbed my bottle. I snuck back. I heard a giggle… Oh no. I had failed to check the time, and it was break time at the sewing factory. The women were on the roof hanging their laundry, and they saw me. Their show just got interesting. I dove over the wall and peeked back. Oh, they had definitely seen me. Seven of them standing and looking at me. Some covering their mouths laughing. Some waving at me. I did not know what to do. What if they talked? What if my organization found out? What if the government found out? I could be in a lot of trouble.

As I was sitting on the hot dolphin tile contemplating my demise, I heard a “Hello”. Definitely one of the Vietnamese women. I peeked back over but I couldn’t see the source. I wrapped my towel around myself and got s little closer. What I saw made me scream a little, but mostly smile. There they were. All seven of them naked as the day they were born. No, actually there were nine of them now. Two friends joined them. They all looked so happy to be completely naked like the beautiful, funny, dreadlocked, white girl. I waved at them and they waved back. This turned out to be a one time event. Even at the beach Vietnamese women don’t allow sun to touch their skin. I don’t really think they wanted to sunbathe, but they just wanted to tell me that they supported me.

For the rest of my time there, I would wave at them on my way up the ladder and they would pretend to lift their shirts and laugh. Just another great example of how nudity brings people and cultures together.

First Nakey Footsteps in The Snow of The Season 2014 | The Naturist Page

December 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

Well, it’s the first snowfall of the season here in Montreal, Canada and I could not resist the urge…

Many Naturists dislike the snow. I am one of them & I do not like to feel cold. However, there is just something about walking naked in the snow that gives me that special connection to nature when I set foot in the snow that make me feel in tune with nature. Obviously I am cold when i’m doing so yet I still enjoy it. Even when there is a heap of snow I like to go running in the snow and jump on my back making a snow-angel; then running back inside to warm back up with a coffee.

Im sure i’m not the only one who likes to do this. I want to hear from you. If you like to go naked in the snow, do you have similar experiences? What do you like to do in the snow?

Naturally Nude Radio | The Naturist Page

December 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

I’m not sure how long this nudist radio station has been on the air for, but they play music from the 60s to the present. With a passion for radio, the owner who is also a nudist from Central Florida followed his long-life dream to host his very own radio show/station.

Perhaps the first radio station of it’s kind I have seen, by nudists for not only nudists but for all to enjoy. The owner also likes the fact that he can work free from the clutches of wearing textiles on! who wouldn’t, if I could work clothes free, i’d be a much happier person and probably love my job better too!

A good point was left in the About Us where it was mentioned, “This will be the story of a group of incredible people who want to show the world how entertaining radio can be! Together, our past, current, and future hosts will create a truly exciting destination for radio listeners who want real music and talk without the confines of government regulation.” The CRTC for example has it’s limitations when it comes to nudity and talk about such topics and can be hard to host a radio station like this and would not allow the airing of such stations. I’m glad they went and followed their dream and went ahead to provide us with a radio station we Naturists/Nudists can relate to and enjoy! Dont forget to visit their website to request a song!

You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter!

New to Naturism/Nudism? | The Naturist Page

How to become a Naturist in 5 steps or less

1) Remind yourself, that being naked is never a sexual statement: “Naturism is to be close to nature and attentive to natural elements. For ourselves and for those around us the way nature and life was intended. Nude is natural. Life is too short, try Naturism! It has been proven to have many health benefits.” This quote speaks for it’s self and I have always stood by it. You have to separate the fact that nudity does not equal sexual-ism and they are two completely different acts. Naturists will not look at you in a sexual way. They will look at you just like a textile would look at another clothed person.

2) Be comfortable with your body & yourself: Don’t be ashamed of yourself or your body. Everyone’s body is different and we all have our own scars, flaws, etc. Don’t feel because you don’t have that perfect body people will think different of you because they wont. We look at each other equally and never judge others because we already understand this.

3) Start your first experiences at home: Starting at home is the best way to start because since its your house and your rules — your house is your castle. Just be yourself as if you were clothed and go about your daily routine at home with chores, watch a movie — whatever you do regularly at home. I just would not suggest you walk outside and wash your car, mow the lawn or other things if you live in an area that has a dense population around you… especially kids. Keep it indoors unless you live somewhere that you know you will not have this problem.

4) Visit a Naturist/Nudist Beach or venue: I highly recommend you try a local Naturist venue over a nude beach but others can beg to differ when it comes to a first public experience. The reason why I say that is my local Naturist Beach is not always the best first experience here in Montreal due to people who like to stare at others. but if your okay with this and are able to block them figures out then its your choice. I recommend a venue that is certified by federations such as, The Federation of Canadian Naturists, Federation of Quebec Naturists, American Association of Nude Recreation, British Naturism, New Zealand Naturists Federation, Australian Naturist Federation, Etc. Check their websites and they will have links to venues that they have certified. A common question is asked ALL the time… “what if I get an erection?” The simple answer to this is as follows. It would be normal to get an erection but your actions count what you do when you do have one. Either simply turn over on your belly on your towel until it passes or take a dip in the cold pool/water until the situation is under control. don’t worry too much if someone notices, what counts is that you took action to conceal it so that you can learn to better control the situation. some people get erections for the first time in public not because they are sexually aroused, but because it is such a wonderful first time experience for a first timer to be natural around others and sometimes things just pop up. don’t worry this is a temporary thing. you’ll get over it and it wont happen anymore as you practice social non-sexual Naturism.

5) Support and become a member of your local Naturist federation and local venue!: Once your comfortable with Naturism and you feel this is a lifestyle for you, I would suggest you support your local Naturist federation and or local venue. It don’t usually cost too much and you can benefit with member prices rather than visitor prices that can be much higher. Keep in mind you can also sometimes get an even better discount or sale as a couple. either your a straight couple, bi, gay, lesbian, etc, etc. In most cases it wont matter. a couple is a couple in many places. Remember many Naturist venues allow couples only! Don’t be offended by this because its to keep a gender balance at the venues.

I hope I have answered most of your questions for the new people who are thinking or trying Naturism/Nudism. If you have any questions feel free to drop me a comment and I will answer you the best I can.

Naturist Etiquette | The Naturist Page

December 1, 2014 in Uncategorized

If you are new to Naturism/nudism, there are some things you should know about naturist etiquette. Just like in the textile world, there are some rules you need to follow before deciding to go about your day/evening in a Naturist environment.

Towels: Towels are a MUST to have. There are various sizes and types of towels you can use to sit on for hygienic reasons. If you have not read my blog about the towels, you can read it here. Where ever you go, if you are gonna sit anywhere you should sit on your towel. Especially if you are going to go to someone’s house or visiting the Naturist campgrounds & resorts. You will be required to sit on your towel regardless if you just had a fresh shower.

Shower: If you are going in to a hot tub or Jacuzzi, etc — do shower yourself down before stepping in one. This helps to make sure you are clean of anything that can make the water dirty from for example… earth(dirt), grass, oils, sunscreen, lotion, deodorants, sweat etc. Their not asking you to shower down because you yourself are dirty… but it helps keep the water much cleaner longer.

Cameras: I think the majority of all nude recreation activities will not allow you to bring or use a camera because it’s not polite to just go around snapping photos. Many people do not want to be in your photo album. If you are going to take a photo it’s best you make sure that everyone that is in the shot, you have their permission, or you might just see yourself kicked out of where ever you are & this could also hinder your standing with the club, resort or federation outings in the future.

Eye Contact: “Hey my eyes are up here!” It is very rude to stare and moreover, if you are gonna have a conversation with someone make sure you are talking to them with proper eye contact. If your going to an event or beach for a thrill… you might as well buy a magazine and do us all a favor and stay home. Also, it’s very rude to be talking about other peoples bodies. Avoid it and talk about something safer like food, weather, etc.

Clothes: Yes, we’re nudists but not stupid. At Naturist resorts, campgrounds sometimes clothes are allowed when its cold out or if the weather isn’t in our favor. however, lingerie is not considered appropriate attire under any of these circumstances nor is walking around in your underwear.

Get a room: Any sexual activity in a public setting is not only offensive .. it’s illegal. Nobody wants to see that. However, holding hands, a hug or simple kissing is fine. If you want to show extra affection with someone you love, I suggest you get a room or wait till your back home to do so.

Erections: Yes, they can happen. especially if you are new to nudism. The best way to deal with this is to either turn over on your towel or if you are at a beach, you can stay in the water until your situation comes more under control. However if you see someone with an obvious erection and is purposely drawing attention. let a lifeguard or authorities know about this and in most cases, will be kicked out and banned from coming back again.

Nude Beach Facilities: When you are at a nude beach, just because you are allowed to be naked does not mean that the facilities are accessible in the nude. so keep your clothes close or wrap yourself with your towel.

Body Language: It does not take verbal language to be able to know what you are not saying. Body language can sometimes speak louder than words. You don’t want to be sitting like the barn doors are wide open. Sit properly and keep your legs together. We all know you have one. Nobody wants to see your legs spread open wide.

Fine Dining: The following was not written by me and is from the website “BON APPÉTIT” on fine dining.

9 Rules for Naked Dining: The Etiquette of Nude Resorts

Once upon a time, etiquette was important: One needed to know which fork to use, which glass to sip from. Those days, my friends, are over. Now, questions of etiquette mainly revolve around how many Instagrams each guest is allowed to take during dinner.

But there remains one corner of the world where table etiquette remains a vexing and important issue: at nude resorts. And it’s a problem for a growing number of people.

“We’re seeing a rise in ‘nakations,’ especially among people in their thirties,’” says Sue Nerud, spokesperson for the American Association for Nude Recreation. Exact statistics are hard to come by, however, since many nudists prefer to remain anonymous. (In fact, several nudists in this article spoke only on the condition their names not be used.) And while Nerud said recent studies show that nakations are great stress relievers, there remain those pesky etiquette issues—which we are about to solve for you!

1. Towel On: “Naked butts at the table are a big no-no,” says travel writer and photographer David Lansing, who likes to take off his press hat (and everything else) at nudist resorts around the world. For reasons of basic health and safety, everyone brings a towel to sit on. More proof that, as fans of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy know all too well, a towel is “the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker”—or hungry nudist—”can have.”

2. Just Because We’re All Naked Doesn’t Mean We’re All Friends: “You should wait to be invited to a table,” says Lansing. “This isn’t like going on a cruise; even though there may be eight or 10 people at a large table, they usually all know each other, and there will be a very uncomfortable pause in the conversation if you just sit down at a table uninvited. That said, nudists are some of the friendliest people I’ve met and invariably you’ll be asked to join one group or another for lunch or dinner. But do wait to be asked.”

3. Listen to Your Mother—Use a Napkin! “As a matter of etiquette,” says advice columnist April Masini, “covering your private parts with a napkin while at a nudist event is good manners the same way not chewing with your mouth open is. We all know it’s there; we all know what’s happening; we don’t need to see everything at dinner. Just because you take your clothes off doesn’t mean you should strip yourself of manners.”

4. Some Don’t Like It Hot: “Most nudists resorts will hold traditional barbecues, and first-timers need to be careful around the ‘weenie roast,’” says Tom Mulhall, who owns the Terra Cotta Inn in Palm Springs, California, and writes about nudism for the Huffington Post. Nor is the grill the only danger—the dinner table, too, can be hazardous. “Don’t allow your waiter to serve you a bowl of hot soup. He can spill into your lap,” notes photography instructor Eugene Louie, who visits clothing-optional resorts for self-reflection.

4. Listen to Your Mother, Part 2: “Sit up straight,” says Masini. “Good posture at the dinner table is always a way to show good breeding and good manners, but when you’re nude, slouching and elbows akimbo are not only more noticeable—they create a silhouette that is less attractive than if you have clothes on. Sit up straight!”

5. No One Will Pardon Your Reach: “Don’t reach—even if you think it’s not a reach,” says Masini. “Nude or naturist dining requires a greater margin of coordination and control. Without a bra, and with a well-endowed chest, reaching—even a little—may result in your breasts in the marinara sauce.”

6. There Is Such a Thing as Too Casual. “Casual dining doesn’t mean you can put your ankle across your knee, or your feet up on the coffee table—even if it’s an outdoor barbecue with paper plates,” says Masini. “Reconsider the view others will have while eating.” Of course, if you keep a napkin in your lap, this won’t be an issue.

7. Eyes Up Here, Buddy! “I’d say the most important table etiquette for nudists is no staring,” says Lansing. “It’s not unusual for nudists to just wrap a gauzy sarong around them as they go straight from the pool (or beach) to the table, so you want to try really hard to maintain eye contact.” Instead of discussing people’s bodies, it’s safer to talk about the food.

8. Food Porn, OK. Real Porn, No Way! Go ahead and Instagram your dinner if the resort allows it, says Nerud, but don’t shoot other guests unless they sign a photo release form.

9. Chill Out: If you’re nervous about dining in the buff, don’t be. The resort owners I spoke to all said concerns about being naked usually go away after 15 minutes. Nude dining seems naturally relaxing: You don’t have to think about what to wear (or dry-cleaning bills), and you never have to loosen your belt if you overeat. Although, actually, I can’t think of a better motivation to lose weight than the fact that everyone can see your gut (and everything else).

Montreal’s Unofficial Nude Beach | The Naturist Page

September 27, 2014 in Uncategorized

I do not know if I would want to call it an unofficial nude beach as of yet, but over the years and especially this year alone, there has been a lot more traffic coming to this neck of the woods; which for now will be in a disclosed location. On average there are 5 – 15 people who come and bare all. However, I must say that this place is still far from being a naturist beach. The reason I say this is there are a mix of people coming here (all men & mostly gay) who like to get their jollies off. I have never seen a any women go to this spot ever. Others, ignore them and come there to sunbathe and skinny-dip in the river just because Oka’s Naturist Beach is either too far or costs money they do not have. I often wonder if one day would come and there is clean-up of the wankers & more people will come and turn this place into a second official nude beach.

Sunbathing | The Naturist Page

September 27, 2014 in Uncategorized

I’m not certain if this happens to everybody, I’m going to tell you based on my personal experiences on how I feel is the best and more importantly the safest method of getting that all over tan without over doing it and ending up burnt. By the middle of summer you might not need sunblock and may never burn.

Early May was the first day of the season I began to work on my porky white skin from being cooped up indoors all winter and my skin could not see the sun. It’s very important early in the season to bring sunscreen at this stage because if your pale like I was, you’ll burn a lot faster. Depending on your skin type, you can be in the sun for 4-5 hours by applying sunscreen every 45min. (If your using SPF-45) You’ll know when it’s time to get out of the sun when you press lightly for a few seconds somewhere on your body; when you let go your finger, you should see white-ish contrasting to red. the bigger the difference, the more likely that it is time for you to get out of the sun and allow your skin to heal. Don’t tan this long the next day, in fact let your skin heal the rest of the day and the day after as well. Tan like this with break periods throughout spring and beginning of summer.
