This is about the practise, how to spend a part of your life free of clothes.
The Nudevents section presents the most various activities in the nude, at which the list is surely incomplete: We do not present no such obvious activities like "playing in the nude at the computer", "playing tag in the nude", "fishing in the nude",… – there are hardly no limits to your imagination.
With Nudity and law, we take a look at the legal situation in different countries, because the law is, of course, country-specific.
»Nude life« is a metaphor for the essentially reduced human existence. Nude life, however, also describes the many-sided experiences and values of a life in daily nudity deviating from daily grind, which our ancestors and many peoples in the early days, as well as even a few peoples up to the present time, had or have as a self-evident daily routine. Actually, naturists of our days consciously cultivate that lifestyle.
So this is about the practice of nude life. »Nudevent« is a coinage to translate the German coinage »Nacktivität«, from »nackt« [en: nude] and »Aktivität« [en: activity, event]. Probably, the German active naturists Anita & Wolfgang Gramer from Berlin created that coinage. In their book »1, 2, Frei – Das NacktAktivBuch«, they described the range of nude activities at that time.
They also offered seminars and therapies, with the help of which one could experience the healing and helpful effect of being nude together. The positive effects of nudity include the strengthening of personal relationships, mutual consideration and attention.
The most common type of is, of course, nude bathing, respectively nude swimming, which is associated with the nude stay at the beach or in the meadow at a bathing lake. This is virtually the essence of the nude and is regular practice for millions of people. Due to booked trips to destinations for nude being, about 8 million aficionados of naturist life are to be taken into account in Germany, and 2 million in France.
Of course, naturists practice the usual beach activities such as beachball, featherball, beach volleyball or pétanque («boule») also in the nude, which is the first step towards nude sports.
It is remarkable, however, that naturists practiced nude activities for a long time only in more or less limited areas, i.e. on beaches or at lakes (tolerated or officially declared) for nude bathing and swimming, on naturist camp sites, or on club grounds.
In the last decades, the naturists conquered more and more the open country: Nude joggers make their daily run in the town's forest, nude hikers meet for nude day-walks in the most beautiful natural parks, nude cyclists are on the way on mountain bike or touring bike, and not only at the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) Day.
