Weekends are nude…


I decided to take my Friday off and enjoy a four-day weekend. As I was thinking about the four days ahead on Wednesday, the idea that weekends should all be nude came to my mind, or should not be real weekends. Well, from a semantic point of view, a weekend is the end of the week. It does not imply activities or level of nudity. However, in our world, the end of the week means for many people a moment of rest. For those who work on “weekends”, the weekend may not be Saturday and Sunday, but this does not change the definition of the end of the week: a moment to rest. In that respect and being an active nudist, my weekends are nude or are not real weekends.

You may agree or disagree. You may find I’m weird. You may think differently. I’m happy with all of this. However, I want to provide my personal view on nudism and what being a nudist means to me, particularly when it comes to weekends and rest time.

What is a nudist?

Recently, there have been many discussions among nudists and naturists about nudism, and particularly the fact that nudists are not people who want to be nude 24×7. Should we consider ourselves nudists if we are okay with being clothed? Do nudists want to be nude every day and everywhere? Are we okay with being nude while others are clothed? There were many questions like this that made me think about what nudism is and what being a nudist means.

I’ve said, like many readers, that I do not like labels. However, words have a meaning and people love to classify other people. For instance, as a nudist, I really appreciate people who are nude when I am, hence other nudists. However, I also appreciate people how are fine with me being nude while they chose to stay clothed. Some nudists I know are not okay with the latter. They feel uncomfortable with clothed people around them. Can we therefore say they are not nudists? I am also okay with people who really dislike nudity and nudism, but share other passions of mine or are closed friends or family I really enjoy spending time with, even though I cannot be naked with them. Therefore, am I really a nudist?

Am I in a sort of a conundrum? Not really!

Let’s get rid of textiles for a moment. Nudists share one common denominator: they enjoy being naked, without deriving sexual pleasure. They enjoy being naked for their own reasons: comfort, freedom, liberation, etc. Many enjoy being naked with other naked nudists, for instance at a nudist beach or resort. Some prefer staying nude on their own. Are they less nudist? Some love to post their naked pictures on the social medias that allow nude pictures, other don’t do this. Up to a point that in almost every nudist resort or beach, you should not take pictures of people without their consent and should never post them on social media, except if they explicitly agree. Do people who do not post their nude self on internet are less nudist?

I had to end the questions, as none was providing the right answer, for a simple reason. There is no true or wrong nudist, there is nothing like less or more nudist, there is no good or bad nudist, per se. There are just nudists: people who enjoy to be nude, alone or with others, for no sexual gratification, but because they just feel good nude!

Nude time is just great time!

In the sense that I love being nude and grab any occasion to be so because I feel good nude, I’m a nudist. I believe that many clothed occasions can be made a nude occasions. It’s generally a matter of asking. Sometimes, you get a no, and I’m good with that, as it provides me with an occasion to start a discussion on nudism and its many benefits. I don’t win the argument every time, but more that I could ever imagined before trying.

Hence, good time can be transformed into great time by becoming nude time. I go on a hike with friends, I talk about nude hiking, and end almost every time entirely nude! I go at a friends place who have a swimming pool, I talk about nudism, and end almost every time entirely nude! We decide to meet friends at the beach, I talk about the nude beach and offer to meet there, and end almost every time on the nude section of the beach! Every good time is an occasion to become nude good time, hence great time!

This is why for me weekends are nude or cannot really be called weekends. I’m a nudist who pushes the limits, because I just love to be nude and look for every opportunity to be nude, while totally respecting others. Nude time is just great time! Some people think I am pushing the limits too far as nudity cannot, should not, be allowed outside of nude beaches, resorts or camp grounds. I think nudity should be allowed everywhere as long as it’s respectful and non sexual, and there are no physical risk involved.

Would I go shopping nude if I could? Yes! Would I go to the movies nude if I could? Probably not as movies theaters are too cold! Would I go to the gym nude? Of course! Would I go to the restaurant nude? It depends, as I love to get well dressed for special occasions. but at a nude resort or beach, I go nude! Would I be nude with non-nudists kids? Only if their parents are okay, otherwise no!

Nudism, respect, love!

I just love to be nude. Why? I cannot explain! I love to be nude and seek every opportunity to get nude so I can feel great. Why? Not for showing off, not for sexual gratification, hence not for exhibitionism, just because I love to be nude! It’s irrational, and totally harmless!

I love to be with other nudists. Why? Because, I love to be able to be nude without being asked why I love to be nude. Also, because I love to be among other nude people. Why? I cannot explain! I just feel good being nude with other nude people. I do not feel any sexual arousal, I just love to be nude.

I love to spend as much time nude. Why? Because I love to be nude. However, I totally respect people who have emotional reaction to nudity. It’s not their fault. It’s their education, their culture, and their norms. At the exception of some people I really love for other reasons (as I explained above), I don’t stay with those nudity-negative people, however, I always try they show me respect as a nudist, as I show them respect as anti-nudist. There are always ways to find balance, at least in democratic countries.

Weekends are nude…

Here I am finishing and polishing this post, looking through the window at a rainy May, nude but soon dressed as the temperature seems more of March than of May. I managed to go for a short nude walk between two rain showers, and will probably go for a naked run tomorrow, and spend the rest of the day entirely naked. Next weekend may be better and allow full nudity from Friday to Monday, we’ll see.

Nudism is my philosophy. I would love to be able to be nude every day and everywhere if I could. But even if that were possible, I would sometimes choose to wear clothes, because I sometimes feel better clothed and I love to be clothed. However, on weekends, nudity is my only choice. If you ever come home, be welcome, accept my nudity and better, join the movement, be nude!

Strip Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked, And Share the Naked Love!

  1. I am similar to you Marc, and would live very comfortably nude permanently. Regardless of my situation, I would be happily nude, if not for seasonal conditions, or social obligations. I work rest and play nude on this farm in Australia, and clothing is not considered as part of my regimen at all. I am the only nudist in my family, and all locals know I am a nudist, but nobody joins me as a nudist. I have trouble comprehending why, out here in the bush, population density 1/50 acres, beautiful climate, why does anybody even own clothing? It is extremely unnatural, creates discomfort, is environmentally unfriendly, and is only worn because it has been taught, forcibly, to us since birth. Cheers Victor

    • Thank you for your comment Victor. Societal norms are powerful, and people, like nudists, who challenge them are seen as weird. But, yes, I totally agree with you, when the weather allows full nudity, clothes are totally uncomfortable and unnatural. A lot need to be relearn. Stay nude!

  2. I have been a nudist for many years. I’m always naked at home, but not able to be naked outside in my garden. I have a nudist beach 2 miles away, and lots of remote coastline, where I can go for naked walks. If I see other people who are not naked, nobody ever says anything, and very often we stop and have a chat.I think nudity on the beach which is not the main area, where families congregate is being accepted in modern times.

    • Thanks Laird for your comment. I totally concur with this feeling. On a scale of 1 to 10, I can feel at 8 clothed, but will go to 10 anytime I’m nude.

  3. I would love to be able to be nude 24/7 if it were possible.
    Yes, I, like you, Marc, do like to dress in nice clothing for special ocassions, but my preferred state is nude.
    I definitely respect the rights of others to choose to be clothed, whether only partially, or completely… that’s their right and their choice. I also respect the rights of others to be nude, whether partially or completely. While I prefer the latter, either way is perfectly fine with me.
