A podcast about naturism for naturists (nudism and nudists to some people) While we obviously cover issues related to nudity, naturism is about much more than being naked so we cover topics related to self-esteem, body-image, body-acceptance, and living in a more natural way. The podcast is produced by Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in Ontario, Canada.

    Children and Naturism – Part 2 of 2

    Children and Naturism – Part 2 of 2

    Since the beginning, naturism has been a family movement. Because its adherents believed that all of humanity would benefit, it was natural that children should be included. In part 1 we focused on the scholarly research which suggests that there is no evidence that children are harmed by non-sexualized social nudity, and good reason to believe they benefit. For the second segment we hear from five parents: Samii, Gillian, Nate, Nikki, and Lauren; who explain why they are raising their children as naturists while they answer many frequently asked questions and address common concerns.

    Naked Age is moving

    After previously being released through the Naturist Living Show’s RSS feed, Naked Age is now moving to its own podcast feed. We really enjoyed including Evan’s excellent work within our podcast. But we’re equally happy to see it become it’s own podcast. The world needs more naturist media!

    Going Braless

    Going Braless

    For over a year, Amber kept a video diary about her experiment with going braless at work and in public. As she put it, she shared her “day to day struggles and triumphs related to the growing trend of ditching the woefully uncomfortable and inconvenient undergarment that every woman secretly wishes she could do without.”

    Children and Naturism – Part 1 of 2

    Since the beginning, naturism has been a family movement. Because its adherents believed that all of humanity would benefit, it was natural that children should be included. In Germany, a naturist-focused series of schools was even created by Adolf Koch in the early 20th century. (Körperkulturschule Adolf Koch) More recently, a multitude of scholarly research papers in psychology and sociology suggest that children reared in an atmosphere containing family social nudity benefit from the practice. In this episode we discuss this academic aspect with Mark Storey.

    Naked Age – North American Nudist Pioneers

    Naked Age – North American Nudist Pioneers

    This episode of Naked Age explores the parallel paths of two nudist pioneers whose stories take place over seventy years apart. First we look at Ray Connett, an influential figure of early Canadian nudism who helped establish that country’s first national nudist organization. Then we meet Gerardo Cisneros, a Mexican nudism advocate whose hard work and clever initiative has helped bring a budding Mexican nudist movement into full bloom.

Milourose ,

Fantastic information

I love listening to the Naturist Living Show. Stephane has the most calming smooth voice. He isn't afraid to speak on controversial subjects regarding naturism. He holds strongly to his ideals without being offensive to those who may disagree. I love hearing about the greater international Naturist community especially. Because of these shows I have joined a local club and have lost my inhibitions to meeting new people within the Naturist community. If you are an everyday Naturist, or just curious, listen to the podcast.
