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.

    Naturist-Nudist Podcasts

    Naturist-Nudist Podcasts

    In this episode we feature other naturist/nudist podcasts. To be included they had to be active, meaning they had published at least one episode in 2021, and had to respond to our inquiry. (in some cases we sent multiple messages but didn’t get a response) It is unfortunate that many podcasts from the past are no longer publishing. And while we try to have “evergreen” content, some of these podcasts will likely stop in the future. But new ones will start so you should keep checking!







    None of the shows featured are in any way related to us. We are not endorsing any of them or their content. We have put together this episode in order to keep you informed and to support other naturist/nudist podcast creators.

    Media Relations for Naturists

    Media Relations for Naturists

    Getting media coverage (pun intended) is very easy for naturists. Journalists love to expose us (pun intended, again) because it gets great ratings and lots of clicks. For naturism it provides a lot of great publicity. But many naturists are leery to speak to the media because they’re afraid to look bad. In this episode we consider who/what is the media with media critic Jesse Brown and review strategies for dealing with journalists.











    Summary of the Media Relations Advice from the Show







    Know your topic and practice – understand (don’t memorize) the answers to typical questions. Use one of the many FAQs that exist. Here is the Bare Oaks one: https://www.bareoaks.ca/first-visit/







    Prepare key messages. But do answer their actual question. To ignore a question just to make your statement is frustrating to the journalist and can make you look bad. Just practice smoothly incorporating your key messages into some of your answers. My key messages: #1 – Naturism is a centuries-old philosophy (ie. It’s well established and more than just being naked) #2 – Naturism is family-oriented (therefore not about sex)







    Journalists are people too – Their job is to ask the questions the audience wants to know. Don’t take the questions personally. Don’t be defensive. If they like you, they’re more likely to present you favourably. Don’t embarrass them or make fun of them but remember you are the expert, not them. There’s nothing wrong with pointing out errors or calmly disagreeing. Everyone is biased and it’s up to you to provide balance.







    Humour is a common way that people deal with discomfort. Don’t take the jokes personally. Have fun with them too and be prepared with your own jokes. Humour can also be a good way to point out the ridiculousness of clothing. e.g. “does your bathing suit keep you dry?”







    Don’t say “no comment” (it seems suspicious and it is frustrating for journalists) but don’t speculate or lie either. You don’t always have to know the answer. Acknowledge problems but avoid repeating negatives.







    Give brief response when possible as it makes it easier for them to edit and your “sound bite” is more likely to make it into the final cut.







    Respond quickly to any media inquiries – timelines and deadlines are tight! Make sure all people in your organization know to pass on inquiries to you and that they understand the urgency.







    Take all interview requests – they’re telling the story with or without you. If you participate at least you have a chance to give your side. But yes, there is definitely such a thing as bad press. You’re trying to soften it but you can’t always prevent it.







    No matter how much you think you have a good relationship with a journalist, don’t rely on “off the record” discussions. They’re doing a job and it is difficult for them to resist publishing juicy info. At the very least, remember that the journalist must agree to your request to be off the record. You can’t demand it unilaterally.

    Naturist Waterpark

    Naturist Waterpark

    Having a naturist day at a waterpark seems natural but the logistics are complicated. We hear three stories, from the UK, United States, and Canada, about renting waterparks with differing levels of success. In all cases, false rumours, unfounded fears, protests, negative publicity, and even threats have caused problems for the organizers.

    Censorship in Social Media

    Censorship in Social Media

    Naturists are constantly censored in social media. Naturism itself gets lumped in with pornography despite the fact that Naturists oppose it, fight for body acceptance, against hypersexualization, and are trying to stop the objectification of the naked form. Yet social media censorship is increasing. "Community Standards" are ethnocentric, vague, and inconsistently applied. There seems to be one set of rules for celebrities and big advertisers; another for Naturists. When rules are erroneously applied there is essentially no appeal process.

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.

Awesome :o)

Full of useful information. Have visited Bareoaks and met Stéphane Deschênes and he runs a AWESOME campground with AWESOME staff. This is a must vist place when in Ontario. Look forward to my next visit.
