In search of a cheap holiday.

It all started when the wife & I went on holiday to Gran Canaria in March. It was quite expensive because we always go all inclusive. We decided that we rarely drink alcohol and dont eat much so all inclusive was a waste of money. I suggested a self catering place somewhere with a bit of privacy for a little naked sunbathing. Wifey agreed (although I dont think she really thought it would come off). First day back at work and what had a ppeared on the notice board? An advert from one of our retired drivers advertising a mobile home 30 miles north of Alicante. I e-mailed him for further details and he sent back pictures of the place, and details of prices etc. I consulted wifey who said it looked good and if I could get the whole week for both of us including flights, mobile home and hire car for less than £350 then we would go. Guess what - I worked it out at £347. Wifey agreed.

Naturist B&B in Bournemouth

I guess one of the few things I'm not really keen on as a naturist is that the level of accommodation can sometimes be a bit spartan. For some, 'spartan' is a real attraction, but not me. I did plenty of camping as a Scout in my teens, and plenty of family caravan holidays, too. Obviously, it depends where you go. Places like Southleigh in Cornwall have a good range of different types of accommodation, including static caravans and log cabins. But, I wanted to visit Studland beach recently, and it would require staying over a couple of nights. I'd seen a Naturist B&B advertised in H&E, and I decided to give it a go. The couple who run it are, in fact, 'buffers', so you can contact them via ITB: dorsetcouple in bournemouth I had an excellent time with them. They run a very clean, well organised b&b. It was great, being able to stay somewhere and enjoy being in the company of genuine naturists. It was delightful, being pampered by them. The breakfasts set you up for the day, and they also offer 3 course evening meals, which are also excellent. For obvious reasons, they haven't gone in for one or other of the b&b rating schemes! I reckon I would give them 4 stars or crowns, though. A safe place for women? Definitely!

Naturist Massage

I've only been a naturist since the beginning of the year, and I've been having fun, meeting new folk, and discovering a whole new way of life. Last night, I went for my first naturist massage. Well, actually, the first of any kind of massage! I decided to go to Elixir in N. London, because of the write up in H&E, and I was intrigued by having a massage, as a naturist and by a naturist. The atmosphere at Elixir is very friendly, and welcoming to a new person. It was immediately apparent that most of the folks there were regulars, which is a good sign. The staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful. The whole place was clean and well kept. There is a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and lounge. The massage itself was wonderful! It was a very pleasant feeling, able to be nude, and being massaged by someone who was also nude. We had a very pleasant chat. It was very relaxing, and almost euphoric! My only regret was not spending more time on the massage. I was even a more courteous driver - and that IS saying something, in London traffic! Is Elixir a safe place for women? It was noticeable that, when I went in the evening, all the staff were women, and all the clients men. I asked if women did go, and was told that they tend to go in the afternoons. The naturist hostess comes on at 6 p.m. - maybe this has something to do with it?! I would say it is a safe place for women, but if you're not sure, go with a friend. If you're a naturist, and have never had a naturist massage, then you've missed out on something special!

first time out

At last, I had my first day out in the countryside without clothing, it was great!! the sun was shining, the birds were singing and I was Naked.

I didn't manage to get my wife to go naked though as she doesn't feel comfortable with the look of her figure. I am trying to convince her, bodies are all different, and nobody is perfect. Hopefully soon she will join me.

Walney Island unofficial naturist beach Cumbria

Visited the beach backed by large dunes myself a couple of times last summer. Because I'm quite near I can pick the best days for a visit and do love the panoramic views across the estuary towards the Cumbrian fells. Working shifts I managed to get there mid week when the visitors are mainly beach combers and dog walkers. Being so far from the car parking area it is only those and the dedicated naturist sun seekers, who will be found dotted about the grass covered dunes.

Dreaming of a full H&E collection!

I,m the very proud owner of quite a large Health & Efficiency Magazine collection with a few missing editions. Soooooo .. I was thinking how cool it would be to try and get lucky on Buffs as I,m sure there must be other interested Buffers with spare copies or gaps? Hope that,s got you thinking enough to get in touch and we can maybe make you rich? Where did you stash those H&E,s? A few Buffers have asked me what I require in the way of missing H&E editions so here is my wish list. Please search your nooks and crannies Required H&E Monthy Magazines:- 1997 - Vol 98 March


Well I suppose I am finally legitimate! I've now explored the previously "secret" sections of the BN website and read the magazine from cover to cover so I thought I'd share my brief first impressions. Firstly the website. For a site that seems to have cost an awful lot of money, I really do not think they have got good value. The site is rather bland in design and I don't find the members' section particularly user friendly nor exciting. The history section was interesting but confusingly written in places. Neither can I find any details of my "local" beach at Theddlethorpe near Mablethorpe, unofficial though I know it is.

SOC Walk

So, it's the hottest day of the year and temperatures well into the nineties, and what do I do? I go on my first SOC naked walk! We met near Arundel in Sussex at 11.45 a.m. and after a few introductions 18 men and 1 woman set off into the woods. Shorts were off after only about 20 yards and back on again twice within the next 250 yards. After that it was pretty much naked all the way. Fortunately for me, there was another 'newbie' on the walk and we soon fell into the pattern of walk and chat. Everyone was so open and friendly it really was a delight to be with them. As the other newbie said, have you ever met another naturist/nudist that was unpleasant? The going was fairly easy, along wooded trails and across golden fields, some of the views especialy over the downs to Bognor were pretty spectacular. We stopped for lunch below a huge oak in a field. It was really very pleasant, photos were taken and the temperature rose. The second part was more serious, following a roman road then crossing back into the forest (euroforest?). The leaders decided not to cut short the walk to 5,6 or even 8 miles because of the heat and we continued on to the full 10.8 miles. I must admit, the last 3 miles were mostly uphill and had me seriously doubting I could get to the end, especialy as my water had run out.

Cap D'Agde June 2006 my views

I arrived in Cap D'Agde naturist quarter around 4:30pm and the weather was warm but not sunny. As soon as I got out of the car I shed my clothes as I was going to make the most of my naturist time being able to be free of them, and if the climate suited I would remain unclothed for my stay. I was then taken to my accomodation, I was staying in the Heliopolis block of apartments. There are a few apartment blocks Heliopolis, Port Ambonne and Port Nature to name a few. In some old picture it shows swimming pools in the centre of the Heliopolis block, but this has been replaced by the building of more apartments. My accomodation was quite small and possibly in the oldest part of the Heliopolis. It contained a small bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin all you need really. In the main area was a kitchenette with two electric rings and a sink, a microwave, a sofa bed and a small table with two chairs. I also had a small balcony with a patio table and two chairs. It was ok for me on my own but I seriously think a couple would of struggled being in such a small space together. I think the small apartments were only in the H,G and F side of the Heliopolis as the other Heliopolis apartments seemed to be newer and had a separate living and sleeping area and a large balcony.

My Manchester Trip

Boring up north huh? I Think not.
First off I had a small amount of work to do at Manchester airport. I left Heathrow at 4.30 a.m. (yes there is such a time). I drove naked all the way to Manchester airport with the heater on full blast and the window open for the breeze. The man on the toll booth at the M6 wasnt really awake I dont think - he didnt say a word! (I thought you just chucked the money in a bucket - but it wasnt working).
 - caught out or what?
Finished my little bit of biz early and had already arranged to meet another ITB member nearby. I arrived near his place early so rang ahead to see if it was ok - no reply. Oh bum, I thought, a waste of time. I left it half an hour and rang again. It was answered (I could hear angels singing - but it was Songs of Praise on his telly).
Spent a very, very pleasant night naked with him. He hadn't been a member very long so I showed him round ITB and he taught me how to use another site. We drank a box of teabags and smoked ourselves through a pack of fags each - but when your feeling good it doesnt seem to matter.
Got back to my hotel at 2.30 a.m. and even the bloke on reception couldnt keep the smirk off his face. Cheeky sod! I was absolutley knackered. I had been up for 22 hours. Showered and slumped into bed prob got to sleep around 3.30 and my mobile went off at 5a.m.. Another urgent job had cropped up.

Mother is an odd name, I know . . . . .

Several people have asked me why my nickname is Mother - not least, I suppose, because I'm a bloke.  So I thought I'd use the blog facility to fill you in.

Then, in 1998, I played the lead in a musical called "La Cage aux Folles". My character was a gay, transvestite female impersonator whose real name was Albin but whose performance persona was called Zaza. He had a partner called Georges who had a son. Zaza was effectively Mother to this lad and towards the end of the second act pretends to be his real Mum who has failed to turn up to meet the future in-laws.  Still with this? Laughing

"Old and new times" by Mother

Don't the years fly by quickly? Until the mid-eighties my second favourite past time was fell walking but then, frustratingly, I developed a problem with my central nervous system which affected my limbs so hiking had to become a thing of the past, as also did playing the violin (but that was a blessing for most people!) This year I have also had to give up my main hobby, drama, mainly because after a stroke three years ago my ability to learn lines has been adversely affected.

Google Fight!! by Mother

I decided to conduct a sort of survey in an idle few moments today, using Google Fight to find out how many times various terms could be found on the web. The results are below, for what they're worth, but I found them rather interesting. (Makes note to self: must get out more!!)

Nude came up 24.2 million times, naked came up 44.7 million times

Nudist : 3.5, Naturist : 2.1
