"EVER wish you could be as uninhibited and carefree as a naked child, totally free of inhibition and self-consciousness?
We all start out that way, but somewhere along the line we learn to cover up; we learn that our naked adult bodies are to be hidden under clothes, seen only by a chosen few.
But there are some adults - many adults, actually - who refuse to conform to the idea that our bodies are to be clothed at all times.
These people spend a great deal of time totally naked and totally at ease with it."
So starts one of the best articles on the subject of Naturist/Nudists lifestyle and resorts that I have seen in a long while. It was published in The Northern Star servicing the northern part of New South Wales, and thanks to the magic of the Internet is available to anyone at the following web address: http://www.northernstar.com.au/story/2011/12/17/naked-truth/
The author interviews the owner of a Naturist Resort "west of the range" although she does not name it and for research had visited North Belongil Beach in Byron Bay and King's Beach in Broken Head nude beaches.
The article contains positive messages and a bit of history of the movement well worth the time to read the article in full.
My favourite quote from the article is:
"For us it's not about taking our clothes off, it's about not having to put clothes on," says Carol."
