Naturism, nudism…it seemed the same to me. I couldn’t tell you the difference between the two concepts. I never thought of it beyond stereotypes: something done by “eccentric” people, somehow related to exhibitionism, and mostly done by men. However, some time ago a friend told me about naturism, how she became a member of Irish Naturist Association and how much she enjoyed naturist outings and … Continue reading As Nature Intended – an insight into naturism by a female first timer

Neither of us had the talent nor the desire for championship skiing or body-builder weight-lifting, … Continue reading I ❤️ Naked Walks: Our favorite places for naturist trekking (Part One)
