Tribal Nudism

It's a bit funny when you think about it, that no matter how rich or famous or powerful you are, underneath our clothes, we all look the same. Kamala Harris, arguably the most powerful woman in the world, would not look out of place standing naked in the jungle amongst the ZoĆ«. The same goes... Continue Reading →

Nudist Art or Erotica?

There is a fine line between nudist art and erotica, or, dare I say, erotica's notorious cousin, pornography.

Living the Naked Life

Truth is . . . the nudist life isn't as all that strange, it's just naked-er. Like most people, I wake up, check my phone, hit the bathroom, and make breakfast. After coffee, I do the dishes and take out the trash, then flip open my laptop to work on my book. The only difference... Continue Reading →
