Naked writer has liberating, not humiliating time
I've never really had a problem with nudity.
I remember being at a public pool when I was 3 and stripping out of my bathing suit after my mom said it was time to go.
My mother, blushing and cackling, wrapped me in a towel, trying to hide her wild child from being seen.
Since that time, though, my parents were able to get through my head that I shouldn't strip randomly in public places.
I called my mom the day before I went to Oaklake Trails to remind her I was going to a nudist park.
I had forgotten to mention until this point that I was planning to go naked.
"You're what?" she responded.
I think she was a little freaked out with the idea at first. However, my parents are firm believers that I'm a big kid now, so she didn't try to stop me.Read More

Jade Jagger leaves the bikini at home and gets to the naked truth
Jade Jagger decided to leave the swimwear behind while visiting her local beach - and opted for a spot of nude sunbathing instead.
With only suntan lotion to cover her skin, the daughter of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger and former model Bianca, spent the afternoon in the buff as she topped up her tan at Cala Pluma beach near her home in Ibiza.
The 35-year-old jewellery designer obviously isn't a fan of 'white bits' - as she's been photographed nude by the sea twice before.Read More

Naked Games Set For San Diego
A nudist resort in East County plans on hosting the 1st Annual Southwest Nudist Network's Naked Games starting later this month.
"In the style of the ancient Olympiads, and the nude recreation weekend we used to hold in the forest of Northern Arizona, the Southwest Naturist Network and DeAnza Springs Resort are teaming up and gathering together the members of all nudists, naturists and clubs who can join us for an event we hope to make an annual celebration of nude recreation in the Southwest," says the Naked Games 2007 Web site.
People attending the event at the clothing-optional resort will face off in bodybuilding and body-painting contests, as well as "tattoo demonstrations, recreation, races and games for young minds of all ages!"
"It's one of the biggest weekends ... I would say 400 to 500 people," said Kimberly Wolfe, the office manager of DeAnza Springs's.

Nudists: No shirt. No pants. No problem.
Allyn Hall soaked up the searing sun yesterday afternoon as he strolled through the Sandy Terraces campground wearing little more than a fishing hat and a smile.
"Your underwear are probably soaking wet," said Hall, 61, to a visitor.
Wet underwear is just one of many reasons why Hall prefers the nudist lifestyle of Sandy Terraces, the Marstons Mills campground where skin is in.
Since the early 1950s, folks have been coming to this secluded and woodsy 10-acre private campground shedding both their inhibitions and their clothing - but keeping mostly quiet about it. Given the way much of society thought about such activity, campers mostly had to find out about the site through nudist clubs or word of mouth.
But Hall thinks it's time the club - you'll excuse the pun - bared more of itself to the public. So on Aug. 18, Sandy Terraces will host a free, by-reservation open house to anyone who might be interested in going barefoot all over.Read Morewww.sandyterraces.com

Nudists to participate in beach cleanup
People wearing nothing but hats, shoes and sunscreen will pick up litter and garbage at two beaches this weekend.
The event is sponsored by the American Association for Nude Recreation in partnership with SOLV, an organization that regularly hosts cleanups along Oregon's rivers and coastline.
"We appreciate the efforts of the American Association for Nude Recreation in preserving the beauty of Oregon's rivers and beaches," Jack McGowan, Executive Director for SOLV, said in a statement released to the media. "Oregonians enjoy the beauty of our state for 364 days a year and on at least one day a year, they go out of their way to give back by helping pick up litter."Read More
