Shopping in the nude at the baker’s …

… most of us do not regard being in the buff when you buy your buns as obvious, especially if all other customers still wear winter coats.

But this young man in France implements this practice – since the baker’s slogan for his products is »Toutes les Richesses de la nature« (All the treasures of nature). A motto we naturists follow!



We dedicate the natury website to the topic of naturism. We show, that nudity was not only a natural state as a matter of course in the history of man, but still is often today.

We show, that nudity is not limited to naturist beaches and fenced naturist sites, but can be practised outdoors: Hiking, biking, jogging, and many other healthy activities.

The Reports section provides numerous reports with videos and photos about activities in the nude.

Nude life presents the practice: We describe a lot of types of activities in the nude and depict experience thereby. Here, we also take a look at the legal situation and realise: Being in the nude is not forbidden – except in some places, for which people have adopted special rules.

We invite you to join in – even clothed to try it out – because in the community of nude people, it is easier to disengage yourself from the constraint to be clothed. For this purpose, there are numerous opportunities for activities in the nude (Nude events ==> Nudevents) throughout the year, you may choose from:
 – Calendar of nudevents.

Within Naturism, we describe the history of nudity and of clothing, but also, how the modern naturism developed: It began in naturist associations, but then was more and more practised "in the wild". We learn, that the terms "nude" / "in the "nude" and "naked" may have very different meanings.

German daily newspaper Westfälische Nachrichten informs about hiking in the buff [18 October 2018]

Image from our archive: 20180914 Dortmund Ems Canal near SendenThe midsummer days of up to 29 °C on 15 October prompted some naturists to use the golden autumn for nude hikes or cycling tours. So did R. at the weekend and encountered hundreds of weekend promenaders in the area of the Dortmund-Ems Canal and the Venne Moor – Germany, Münsterland.

One of them reported about his encounter with the nude hiker to the Münster daily newspaper Westfälische Nachrichten, who – after consulting law enforcement officers – published an informative article*) (in German) for the readers.
