Danish Girls On Vacation
Writing on a nudism blog (as a fellow Nudist Bare) and just stating the facts often involves feelings of guilt (as if I were behaving pruriently). But mentioning the context of a photograph (“teens,” “family nudists,” etc.) frequently means employing terms used to entice the unwary surfer (“Family nudists on vacation,” “Young nudists in Europe”). In the present case, eight Danish girls recently rented a house on Ibiza and, upon arrival, disrobed for a week of living “as nature may have intended,” (according to one of them). If you’ve been to Ibiza you’re aware that nudity is no big deal. If you haven’t made it there, or if you spent your summer in a cubicle in downtown Chicago, you might think it is indeed a big deal and worthy of a little journalistic inquiry (including lots of photography). This would be for you. (“Euro Nudism: Danes On Vacation”)
What do average nudists look like? Or more specifically, would you like to look at them? As with the general population at large, nudists come in all shapes and sizes. Spend time on any nudist beach and this is one of the first things you notice. Do we focus on average nudists, or cherry pick among submissions for the most attractive? The answer is we do not, but we do tend to eliminate the obese and the excessively “decorated” (tattooed, pierced, weird). With what’s left we find that “average” tends to be people like us–relatively fit, somewhat health conscious–people that more or less look normal who aren’t sating their inner-child or psychic wounds with drugs, alcohol or pudding. I bring this all up because in the above photograph the girl is “a little heavy” (an intern’s comment). I emailed back, “Perhaps a little, but she looks very happy.” More to the point, she looks like someone I might like to know and chat with. I think that’s the real point–are these people I’d enjoy spending time with?
More Americans are braving the bad press and heading to Baja’s sparsely populated beaches for a little “body freedom.” Sticking thematically with “average nudists,” this young Californian typifies the type of youth that embraces nudism around the world. The fact is, the young who participate do seem to be fit and by default, very pleasing to the eye. That’s just a fact. (“Mexican Nudism: Who’d A Thought?”) AEMobley
