I ‘ve in the past gone bare on occasionally fairly busy Spanish beaches, taking nothing and walking purposefully past them for several miles. It’s not prohibited there. Individuals would notice, but few looked at all disturbed. Only once did anyone (a guy) item on the particular grounds that kids might see me. As we know, youngsters take no notice of simple nudity, but I did feel anxious because I then felt vulnerable and had no means at all to cover up.
I occasionally experienced groups of two or three women expressing apparent acceptance that I was nude, not that I was looking for that.
I always avoided single women who weren’t nude or top-free so as not to make youngest nudist photos feel uneasy or threatened. It was interesting to observe how some couples saw me nude and then removed their clothing. That was previously.
In the interests of not causing offence and not giving naturism a bad name even if legal I have changed my strategy to public nudity to be less evident. The same as Pete, I agree hiking is a good deal more entertaining compared to the shore. I also use quieter Spanish beaches where few people pay any attention apart from simply discovering, some see me and do the same! Hiking in Spain, it’s so quiet the opportunities of running into someone are low. Hiking in the united kingdom the chances are higher. If alone I have tend to disappear off into the bushes, feeling nervous since I ‘ve absolutely no wish to offend but afraid it might be taken as more than simple nudity.
Doing a Spencer Tunick setup has given me a different pespective on how the Brits see nudity. 1700 individuals went bare for several hours in a city in the name of “artwork”. Most weren’t naturists and were quite nervous in the beginning. I actually don’t go bare on UK shores unless lying on my belly in a quiet place. I only stand up when there isn’t anyone about for at least 700 yards, but may walk view . If a person keeps on walking towards me I do not normally worry about it, since it’s their option and I ‘m on a very broad big beach, but if it’s narrower I sit down and am unobtrusive until they have passed.
If I see a lone girl I often cover up as we get closer so she is able to feel “safe”. No one in the united kingdom has ever objected or seemed piqued. Sometimes they’ve been obviously amused, so I just say hello. You might wonder why I don’t use nudist beaches quite frequently. The key answer is simple. Sadly, in the UK and on the smaller Spanish beaches there are often various pervs hanging around and I usually do not feel as comfortable. They are the ones giving naturism a bad name.
