Why are we Brits so squeamish about naturism?

Why are we Brits so squeamish about naturism?

Post by PENTUP » Sat Mar 21, 2020 7:33 am

A fellow UKSF member kindly sent me an extract from a recent issue of The Naturist, which I hadn’t seen since my schooldays (along with Health and Efficiency and Razzle, it was always considered to be top class wanking material, though I could never understand why the magazines’ publishers always air-brushed out the ladies’ pudenda. Razzle, as I recall, had a fixation about busty ladies with huge bottoms.

What really fascinated me about this 2020 edition of the naturist movement’s ‘bible’ was its continued prudery about sexual activity in the clubs. Though its editorial gushes on about the joys of being unclothed, its club announcements and directory make it crystal clear that hanky-panky will not be tolerated. One club in Derbyshire, which has an indoor pool for naked mixed swimming, warns that officials will escort anyone off the premises who is seen to be involved in ‘inappropriate activity’. And you may even get reported to the British Naturism Association!

I like to think of myself as broad-minded and tolerant and should I visit one of these establishments would have no problems if lady members (or even other men) wanted to ogle my tackle. Likewise, I can think of nothing nicer that lying on a lounger by a heated pool, watching ladies titties bobbing up and down in the water. But it seems it must stop there if you are a true naturist. Don’t naturists ever get up to anything naughty? Presumably only in the privacy of their own home.

In the Balearics and the Canaries naturist beaches abound, with (from my experience) no holds barred. And dear old Switzerland has not only legalised brothels, but boasts some of the largest (and superbly-hygienic) all male saunas in Europe. So why is British naturism still stuck in the prudish 1950s?

You raise lots of very thought provoking questions, all of which i have no answer. It not as if us brits are not into sex.
