This is the way Naturism will ALWAYS look in my mind. Period. It is about people being ourselves, free of judgement, free of anxiety (or nearly so) and happy. Smiling. In comfortable surroundings with a greater chance of knowing who will be present, why they are present, and what is going on. Some might characterize this as being far from modern society, and they would be correct! Just as fifty thousand people at Burning Man in Nevada do, naturists have simply written out guidence for living life more openly and yes, even sexuality is considered because we still treat it with discretion and decency, and we don’t expect or encourage anyone to treat it otherwise. In this regards, its much better than simply sending people off into the world, into many bars, niteclubs, concrete halls, stadiums and what-have-you place where “things” happen in secret, or things happen because nobody wants to become involved, or things happen out of the competitive drive of survival (baser instincts) and embarrassment is only a word with power when people choose to grant it.
No choosing, simply LIVING as we are made.
A Naturist Family:
Great! Now I have viewed the entire video, and the best way to classify it is as “Home life” or “Home living” maybe kind of resort style, I think. This young couple has purchased a property and given it a complete “makeover” with all new amenities and now presents it for our consideration! Plus, they are a Naturist family with two young boys, so far from being an (American) “Tiny home” – a purpose-built structure with the smallest footprint in square footage – this home is cozy or small, but it suits their immediate needs and was “budget friendly” on the makeover.
Living minimally, efficiently, in a stable economy and not spending more on housing than is necessary to survive is the trend at the end of the 2010s so to speak, for SOME people. There are still large properties and “McMansions” being constructed, but these crazy symbols of wealth and excess are strange in my mind. Why create a need for BIGGER heating bills, bigger electric, more insurance, more home upkeep or repairs, and have a larger target for storms, natural disaster and robbery? Why? Does anyone need a 3, 4 or 5 car garage, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathroom, and an olympic sized pool in the ground? All of that may be nice, but we typically enjoy getting away to places with these features and if we build small, then it should become possible to do more traveling!

How great would it be to host a Naturiste mystery dinner themed party in this lovely castle!
