An interview from July 2008 with France Guillain, the author of Le Bonheur d'être nu. Le Naturisme, un art de vivre. (The pleasure of being nude. Naturism, an art of living.) France has written many books on naturist health that have sold millions of copies throughout Europe. She has also shared her knowledge and experience through hundreds of articles, radio interviews and televisions shows. She currently teaches healthy living at conferences, seminars and through naturist retreats. Ms. Guillain shares with some of her philosophies about naturist health, child rearing, sexuality and gender roles. She also talks about her fascinating life raising 10 children (5 adopted) as naturists. Finally, we discuss naturism in France and at her home club, Heliomonde. We start the show by reading a very amusing blog post on "Nipple Radiation" from My Secret Public Blog: Naturist, Nudism and other stuff.

Episode VIII We discuss the many reasons why clothing-optional policies do not work in naturist clubs. Naturism wasn't always so tolerant. In the beginning of the 20th century when naturism started, wearing clothes in a naturist club was not an option. The clothing-optional policy, a well-meaning attempt to be more inclusive and to make it easier for new people, has actually back-fired. The song at the beginning of the show is: Skin Free by The Naked Drummer & the Baileys Road Band.

Episode VII We interview Stephen Crowley author of Loxie & Zoot and The Bare Pit cartoons. The first story, Loxie & Zoot, was published as a book. He has since published 12 more stories (nearly 400 pages) on the web. Stephen's cartoons very effectively depict of every body type and shape without bias against any of them. His stories are appropriate for all ages and contain lessons for both naturists and non-naturists. Stephen pokes fun at many textile misconceptions about naturism but also takes a few shots at some naturist hang-ups. You can also see some of Stephen's art on Bare Oaks' website and printed materials. Stephen discusses his inspiration for the strip, the impact of naturism as a topic in cartoons, and how he goes about creating The Bare Pit. We close with Stephen describing naturism in Australia. The image included with the post was specially drawn by Stephen for this podcast. Can you guess who the characters are? www.TheBarePit.com
Episode VI In this episode, we discuss naturist fiction with Tom (T.H.) Pine who has authored many short stories and novels. In fact, he was an author before he became a naturist. Discovering naturism led him naturally to writing naturist fiction. We talk about his stories, his writing techniques, his inspiration, the type of fiction that he likes and what he thinks doesn't work. As part of those discussions, we debate the pros and cons of including sex and sexuality in naturist fiction. Tom also gives some advice for listeners who want to write their own fictional stories. We close with a discussion on e-books and the future of printed books.

Episode V On November 27, 2008, the naturist world lost a leader when the founder of The Naturist Society, Lee Baxandall, passed away at the age of 73. This episode is dedicated to Lee’s legacy in the naturist world. We interview Nicky Hoffman from the naturist society who worked with him since almost the beginning. We also hear Mark Storey’s perspective on Lee’s impact on the naturist world. Finally, we hear Lee Baxandall himself speak about naturism.

Episode IV Nude Volleyball — it's become a cliché of naturism. In this episode we talk with Peter Allison a long time player and the organizer of the Greater Toronto Naturist Volleyball Tournament at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. Peter tells us about the reasons why volleyball is so popular and provides hints for people who want to try it.

Episode III Naturist or Nudist? What is the difference? The answer appears to depend on who you are and where you live. We get the history of the terms from Mark Storey. Then Michel Vaïs gives us the current European perspective. Finally, Nicky Hoffman of the Naturist Society (TNS) explains her preference while Bob Dixon, vice-president of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) defends the term nudist.

Episode II A discussion with Mark Storey the author of "Cinema au naturel, a history of nudist film." (We apologize for the poor sound quality of Mark's voice. Due to a technical problem, the recording is difficult to understand.) In this episode, we explore the frequent conflict between naturists who wanted to promote the values of the movement against the commercial film producers who wanted to exploit the nudity of naturism for salacious reasons. In the early to mid-twentieth century in particular, many movies were made under the guise of nudism documentaries because of tough censorship laws. The film soundtrack clip is from from the 1961 movie Have Figure Will Travel which was partially filmed at Sun Valley Gardens in Ontario, Canada.
This is the introductory episode for the Naturist Living Show. It is a brief introduction to the show and its purpose and objectives. Naturism is more than just taking your clothes off. It is a life philosophy with physical, psychological, environmental, social and moral benefits. The basic tenets of naturist are respect for self, for others and for the environment. Future episodes of this podcast will deal with topics that touch on these themes. At the end of the show, we play "Nature is" by Brian Madison. Nature Is ©2003 Brian Madison When winter gets me feeling low There's just one place I want to go Can't wait to see something live and green Shed these layers, follow me dear Shake of this grey winter right here The trees and us with nothing in between Unconstrained by cold conventions Losing all our old pretensions Lord knows baby, we have paid our dues If we abandon all these modest schemes And ratify some better memes We've got nothing to lose but our blues Naturally you, naturally me, naturally we Naturally you, naturally me, naturally we Barefoot beginnings that's a start To liberate our gentle hearts The grass between our toes no shoes or socks Release the threads that keep us bound Just leave them lying on the ground In a little pile beside those rocks Far away from preconceptions No intentions, no deceptions Nothing left to hide, just like we planned Gymnasts, Sophists, dancers we Have never ever felt so free As running in this meadow, hand-in-hand Natural you, natural we, natural me Natural you, natural we, natural me To civ'lization we return soon But it's only quarter past noon There's still time to roam these acres fair Let's go see how that river flows We'll have no need for fancy clothes No uniforms or fig leaves if we dare Taking off out in the woods No strings attaached, no shame, no shoulds We can just accept us as we are No other way we'd rather be Wearing smiles of joy we see From social constructs we have come so far The springtime breeze we'll welcome in Like a birtyday, born again Finding peace for life in our true skin Let's have a picnic in the sun We'll be like children, free and fun The sun and air; that's what nature is Nature is you, nature is we, nature is me Nature is you, nature is we, nature is me Nature is you, nature is we, nature is me Nature is you, nature is we, nature is me
