Naturist Resort Mexico – Playa Sonrisa

Mexican Nudist Resort Playa Sonrisa:
Nudist Resort Mexico- For people who loathe winter and dearly miss being nude outdoors in sunlight, Mexico is certainly a destination to contemplate in late December (and practically any other month of the year).
Attractive beaches on the ocean, gulf, and sea with warm tropical weather throughout the year, and there you have one choice for escaping a winter hideous-land.
After some distressed seeking for an inexpensive last minute deal at a nudist resort abroad (not so simple to find this year), we eventually found Playa Sonrisa, a clothing optional resort on the Caribbean Sea coast of Mexico.
Nevertheless, don’t let the additional travel time deter you because I can ensure that it’s well worth the excursion.
Playa Sonrisa is small and secluded. If you’re buying a peaceful naturist resort in Mexico, this an ideal place to escape from everything!
With six beachfront guest rooms on the property, you can always find quiet and not feel overcrowded. We stayed in a “Beachfront Bungalow,” a bed and bathroom in our own private hut, situated on the sand and close enough to the water for a constant sea breeze.
We had the chance to tour their “Villa Sonrisa” next door made up of modest apartments completely furnished with a kitchen and living room and allowed for returning guests only. The Villa also offers a patio and bar on the rooftop with a great view. These apartments are friendly, so I mightn’t hesitate to return.
Fantastic Nudist Resort Mexico – Playa Sonrisa
Several steps from our door, the sea could easily occupy an entire day with skinny-dipping, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, or just curling up with a novel while sunbathing naked on the plage. Just beyond their dock are miniature coral reefs to discover with angel fish, lobsters, and a slew of other types of little tropical sea creatures.
These reefs, shielded within a marine reserve, are especially healthy and vibrant.
I took their introductory class as a first-time diver, and had a surreal new encounter in my first 40-foot dive.
Mealtimes at the resort were scheduled for 2-3 hour increments each day, day and nighttime, and the food was excellent. Continental breakfast was included with the room, while lunch and dinner were at an added, but very fair cost.
Highlights were the tasty home made muffins and b read , Mexican lunch fare like quesadillas, and the creative, inventive soups served at dinner. Food was served in their enchanting pub and restaurant with tables inside and outside on the porch. The pub is open all day and operates on the “honor system,” so guests can help themselves to drinks between mealtimes and just keep a tab.
Overall, Playa Sonrisa had more of a bed-and-breakfast vibe than the usual resort, but this really is not a bad thing. Over the course of our stay we had the delight of getting to know the owners, Donn and Cindy Murphy who are such warm, down to earth individuals and make you feel right at home.
Plus, among its best features is how affordable it is.
What it comes down to is that if you should be buying a glitzy resort with five naked swimming pools, this isn’t it. If you’re looking to completely kick back, relish the simple delights of sand and sea with no clothing or worries, Playa Sonrisa might be the perfect alternative.

Bob’s Burgers Nude Beach Episode Gets It Right (Almost)

I’m a huge fan of the popular cartoon sitcom, Bob’s Burgers.
The show is funny, first, and most surprisingly, sex-positive. (The sex-positive attitudes reveal through the three kids characters together with the parents’ attitudes towards sexuality.) It’s called “Naked Beach.”
In this episode, Bob has issues with his restaurant health inspectors and at exactly the same time, a naked beach opens up in town. It starts out with Hugo, his usual nemesis health inspector, who gives bob’s hamburgers a “C” evaluation after Bob neglects to reveal his “hand washing certification.” The family asks Hugo and his partner who they’re going to harass next when the following dialog ensues:
Hugo: “Well Bob if you must know maybe you have heard our town is currently home to some disgusting unclothed beach! There have been reports of vendors there serving food while n-n-nude.”
Tina: “That’s how the sellers served food in the Bible.”
Hugo: “Don’t bring religion into this!”
The Bible remark is amusing, but I know it doesn’t look like we’re off to a good beginning. got the usual “ew, gross” comment about naked folks at a nude beach. But it gets better!
Linda seems happy about the unclothed beach and inquires Bob when they’ll reach go. Bob responds, “Naked beaches are full of heavy, out of shape old bodies and I do not wanna go there and realize I seem just like that.”
Lots of times people are uncomfortable or express disgust with naked bodies because they’re ashamed of their own naked bodies. It reminds them of how they themselves do not measure up to society’s beauty standards. (Of course this is still propagating the myth that everyone on the unclothed beach is old and ugly by society’s standards, but you will find more body-favorable moments ahead.)
Tina needs to go visit the bare beach and offers to go with her mom Linda for a pleasure “mommy daughter nudity day.” But Bob says he’s fairly certain kids aren’t permitted there.
view ends up going to the plage with her friend Gretchen. They come upon a sign that says the playa is for age 18 , and this really is a strange assumption, as most bare beaches do not have an age limitation. It is also unfortunately reinforcing the notion that naturism is an “adult” action and never appropriate for children. (In reality many families and kids frequent bare beaches.)
American television can’t even free the nipple on animations. Miserable. Jpg: Fox
The strand scene is otherwise an accurate portrayal. There is a number of individuals sunbathing, playing sports, socializing etc. But even though it is a cartoon, they avoid showing any genitals. Additionally , I found it a little astonishing how they show male nipples but not female nipples. All the backdrop characters assumed to be girls are covering their torsos in some way or they’re strategically blocked. We’re talking about two flesh-colored dots. Is the Fox network fearful to lose their sponsors over two dots? Or is this the FCC shielding everyone from cartoon dots? It’s fairly absurd either way.
Meanwhile, Tina, Louise and Gene go to have a look at the sand from a space. see that it’s located underneath a cliff, and crafty Louise gets an idea. Gene says, “It’s like the Internet but outside!” This really is a fine wink to the fact that kids aren’t permitted at the sand, but nude folks and even porn is so read ily seen online.
Gretchen points out the hot men in the drum circle at the naked beach. Pic: Fox
While the kids are busy with their master plan, Linda and Gretchen are hanging out at the plage. They spot a drum circle and Linda is shocked to recognize one of the drummers – it is Nude Hugo! detected he loved the unclothed beach.
Back at the restaurant, Linda tells Bob about Hugo, and the kids casually reveal their plans for earning money off the naked beach. Here the parents express their tacit approval of the kids seeing nudity. While abide by the sand’s 18 rule, they don’t have any problem with the kids looking from a distance. Bob just wants them good luck.
At school, the children work on enticing their classmates into seeing the naked people at the naked beach. Additionally they gain a brand new partner, Daryl, who has a telescope they are able to use. The following day they will have a line of children ready to pay $1 each to get a peak.
Louise sells her classmates on “nudity tours.” Image: Fox
However once the other children get a glimpse, they are disappointed in seeing “gross” old folks. Louise takes charge of the situation and changes their outlook with a wonderful sales pitch: “You guys! You are looking at this the wrong way! You wanna see fine bodies, get a magazine. This is real, folks! Have a look at that guy! What’s that, is that the liver spot? Is that the birth mark? Is that a third nipple? Who understands! You can’t write this crap!”
Her pitch revives interest, and the youthful customers line up to see real life naked folks. The action continues to be a bit voyeuristic, but now the children are excited to see the nude bodies they don’t get to see otherwise. Typical nudity in movies and magazines is confined to one body type and one fake homogenized look. Here, paradoxically, the children need to monitor a unclothed beach from afar and through a lens to see real bodies.

He ends up competing with Hugo in the “Nudecathalon” – their nude Olympics at the naked beach, with 27 tasks that comprised a two-legged race, long jump, tug-a-war and wrestling.
Up on the cliff, the Belcher kids get a surprise in seeing their own father nude on the playa. Louise is upset and radically covers her eyes. Tina remarks “I believe father seems fairly great considering he’s had 3 kids.” But url keep seeing the Nudecathalon and shortly they’re swept up in the excitement and cheer on Bob to win.

BtoB: I like those posts too. They are generally the ones that I feel really emotional about on a personal level. I composed the commentary about Kasey Edwards and then panicked because I recognized it was perhaps too private or didn’t fit with my endeavor but after a little while I realized everything I DO is personal when it comes to this and my feelings on that were no different.

Sometimes sharing feelings about things like that is more challenging than sharing a picture though for some reason.
Would you mind sharing the post related to your period?
BtoB: [quoting ] “Just like last month, and the month before that and the month before that, and ok, you get it, I Will stop, I am on my period.
This continues to be accurate, but my periods have never in my life been easy. They are painful and dirty and I get cramps and headaches and bleed an entire hell of a lot. But they also force me to slow down, to pay attention to my body, to let someone take care of me for a day. They remind me that I’m vulnerable and at exactly the same time, so really powerful. They remind me that my body is amazing and fascinating and able of so many wonderful things. They remind me that it is alright to cry, or ask for help or ask for an additional hug that day.
In addition they remind me that people all around me are suffering every single day from things that I do not understand about. Perhaps url on their period too, or have a migraine, or are fighting a debilitating disorder. Maybe they’ve only lost a loved one, or have a sick kid at home. The folks around all of us are dealing with matters that hurt them constantly, emotionally and physically, but I know that so often I forget about that, and I think it’s all about me. If ‘m fine, they are fine.
I do not need additional help or empathy, why do they? So when my body reminds me what pain feels like, or what it’s like to spend a day feeling vulnerable and scared, it helps me recall that everyone else has those days also and perhaps occasionally they desire the additional hug, or a kind word, or a bit of help, and being reminded of that is a great thing.”
What is next for you and this job?
BtoB: As far as what comes next, I honestly have no idea. It began as merely a straightforward, funny endeavor and evolved into this odd and exciting stage from which I can talk about my body and hopefully help folks outside. Ideally, I want to break away from the Tumblr platform and direct more people to a web site instead. follow feel like Tumblr is kind of insular and has a extremely small demographic, and I Had like to stand outside of that and let more people see what I’m doing and find out about it who don’t always have Tumblr accounts. I began a web site with no idea what to set on it and somehow that’s evolved into a mix of Tumblr posts and also some additional information, posts, etc.
Occasionally I think to myself, I should simply cease. I have done enough. And I do not post anything for a few days, and then all of the sudden i realize I have another thing to say and I write about it and people respond to it and it rekindles that desire to keep doing it.
Ultimately, I have no idea. And somehow I simply keep going. But never once have I really understood w here I am going with it, it only occurs and I keep ending up wherever it takes me!
I understand I appreciate what you have to say and to consider it’s a dialogue that’s needed out there .
I feel like we’ve just touched the surface here, there are really so many things that we could discuss! Maybe we’ll reconnect in the future for part two. As you know, many of the listeners on this podcast are either naturists, or are interested in trying social nudity out, commonly to beat their own anxieties and body issues.Do you’ve any ideas for either?
url :Undoubtedly! I’d be happy to come back for a part two some day. Actually, I think my guidance to those folks would be to only do it! I ‘d say that 99 percent of the time, we are our worst critic and that thing (whatever it is, weight, hair, whatever) that’s so enormous to us is actually not a big deal to a lot of others. believe that everybody should learn to be comfortable naked by themselves and in front of strangers.

Can it be the bare beach experience I ‘ve always fantasized about? Not necessarily. Naturally, I did not anticipate that much from this vacation, and maybe next time, someplace such as Cap D’Agde would make a more appropriate destination. This vacation was far from the perfect eyesight I had in mind. But it’s definitely a part of the right path. I’ve come quite a distance from skinny dips snuck at night.

And one thing for sure, it’s good to understand that I have the local option.

Component 5 of My Naturist Site Series: Out of the Nudist Closet and Into Naked Paradise
Finding Nude or Nudist Paradise
For my preceding naturist site narratives, see Component 1 Least Likely To Become A Nudist; Part 2 Boobs Boobs Everywhere; Component 3 Home Nudist Held Captive and Component 4 Hunting for the Naturist-Fowl.
Well, my second favorite word, the first being nude. But since naked can mean nearly anything, I sought under “naturist” and came up with Paradise Lakes Resort in Land O’ Lakes, Florida.
“Can you go nude there?” I asked her. “Really? Like . . . wherever you desire? Really? The entire time? Awesome!” OK, perhaps I did not say wonderful, but that was how I felt.
Only trouble? I needed to be 18. But despite not being able to go, simply understanding a place existed where individuals were free to go naked made me happy. But telling a twelve year old to wait six years is like telling an adult to wait 600.
Finding Nude or Naturist Paradise
Flash forward a decade, I ‘m twenty-two and just finished Saint Petersburg Junior College, and my family life has drastically transformed. , who had been a workaholic since 1952, finally built his dream house.
This, of course, had to resemble the Parthenon, with two story columns and an immense front door we’re able to never open and a private backyard that looked like the Garden of Eden.
Unfortunately, my parents were old and tired and spent much additional time at home. Other than sitting on my nude behind in front of my Amiga, the isolation I once enjoyed was no more. All I ‘d to look forward to were summer excursions to the islands.
naturist story – Finding Naked or Nudist Paradise
If you would have seen my University of South Florida I.D. card, you would have thought I was trying to pass myself off as [add dark skinned stereotype here]. Usually, I’m more Germanic looking than Greek, but I’d spent about a month on the island of Mykonos risking skin cancer. Free body tourism in Greece, nevertheless, was on the decline.
One night, while counting the months till summer, it occurred in my experience to type, “nudist resort, Florida” into my America Online web browser. Lo and behold, the resort I’d called ten years previously popped up. Why I’d never thought to do this before is beyond me. I checked the address, assuming it must be situated in some remote part of the Everglades, but God, it appears, really desired me to stay a nudist.
I commuted an hour to school every day, and the route was convoluted. What I hadn’t realized was that I was driving by the largest nudist resort in the state, for months, every damn day.
The idea of joining a resort was a lot like taking that first shower without locking the door. For almost a decade I considered myself a naturist, but never talked to anyone who could say the same.
The folks on the seashores spoke Swedish and German and were generally being intimate with their partners. I stressed that in discovering other naturists, I might discover that they were nothing like I imagined, all hippies or rednecks, or sex-crazed weirdoes.
Driving around the checkpoint, like those used in gated communities, a middle aged woman checked me over like I was a secret agent. Without mentioning nudism, she asked, “Have you been here before?”
“Do you realize what this place is?”
“Yes, of course.”
But you will need to take the day tour!”

Hippies Vs. Occupy Wall Street –

Fighting Hate With Love Vs. OWS – Fighting Frustration With Hate:
Occupy Wall Street failed where others succeeded – WHY? I’d like to explain why I think it failed, the lessons which should be learned and the links it might need to Fkk Portal in addition to other nudist organizations.
So what was Inhabit Wall Street? Basically it was an anarchist “leaderless” movement that, to put it simply, desired to end capitalism. They offered up no real options to some of the difficulties but protested the things they did not approve of in society today.
Hippies Fight Hate With Love
Their name says it all – “Occupy Wall Street” – is a call to action for folks to “Dwell” an area of Fresh York City that does not belong to them (they were essentially Squatting and claiming their right to a section of the city regardless of any inconveniences or issues that it may have caused). bears a striking similarity to Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin’s “Awesome Left” movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Both the Fresh Left and Occupy movements brought defeated individuals who lost all confidence in the economic and political systems in the USA. Both were out to shake up the status quo with the hopes of running a societal revolution / social coup.
Neither were really looking to solve the problems and work within the current system. They didn’t believe in the election system nor did they feel that any change could be brought about unless the governments were to be taken over and reconstructed from scratch. There were no established targets or standards for success and both were more revolutionaries than “evolutionaries.” They both used negativity to bring focus to their attempts and becoming detained on national TV was considered awesome!
OWS March On The Brooklyn Bridge
In the case of Occupy Wall Street, the folks behind the scenes, pulling the strings, used lie and flat out lies to get attention. With the assistance of some reporters they put out fake announcements to bring attention.
Their first huge hoax was their statement that Radio Head (a popular music band) was going to preform when in fact, no such occasion was planned. People flocked by hundreds to see the group preform and once they got there, they were greeted by dozens of Occupiers who started preaching. Obviously, were put off by this publicity stunt, but at exactly the same time it gave OWS the chance to address hundreds of fresh potential supporters. Those that remained must have quickly forgotten that they were lied to.
In marked contrast to the Fresh Left (and the OWS ideals) was the hippie movement. The hippie movement, which was part of the “Old Left,” was out to address specific social issues and needed to create something fresh rather than ruin the present system. Hippies wanted to stop the war in Vietnam, they wanted equal rights, more tolerance and used positive messages to obtain support.
Each of the above movements appealed to very distinct demographics. The hippie movement of the late sixties started something within a particular demographic that believed in nonviolent ways to address problems.
Naked Hippies at Woodstock 1969
The Occupy Wall Street movement, was about anarchy and totally shattering the status quo. Since they considered that lies and misinformation were acceptable means to get attention, they appealed to those with very different value systems (or the lack thereof) than those who supported the hippies.
Only thinking about the impact of these social movements you’ll be able to see that history does have a tendency to repeat itself. The Awesome Left got its media attention when they protested at the 1968 democratic convention in Chicago. The 8 leaders / activists were detained and put on trial in what’s now broadly referred to as the trial of the Chicago 8 (Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, Lee Weiner and Bobby Seale). But soon afterward, these leaders and the movement they created dwindled and pretty much evaporated without making as much of an impact as they would have enjoyed.
The Original Chicago 8
Take Wall Street is going through the same thing. They set out to topple the status quo and have hardly any to demonstrate by way of positive impacts. The hippie movement disappeared over the years too, but they created a heritage that’s felt and discussed to this very day. Their achievements in regions of civil rights and the Vietnam War had a significant impact on America. They also had a clear impact on the artwork in all its various facets. Their ideals are echoing still now in music, artwork, and in regular life.
What I am essentially trying to say is that while fury and rage are strong motivators, Love has staying power. Young Naturists America is not about taking away, it is about building on what now exists and trying to correct much of the social problems that plague society today. We are not leeching off of others’ success, we’re developing a subculture that is completely separate and distinct.

Review of a Calistoga Napa Valley Clothes Discretionary bed and breakfast / Inn: Meadowlark Country House

During our travels around northern California, Jordan and I got an opportunity to visit a charming small clothing-optional place in Calistoga named Meadowlark Country House.
We arrived in the evening and drove right in (no gate that I could recall). We pulled up and parked at a large white house. Even in the sparseness of winter, the property were quaint and inviting.
It was appropriate on the main floor so we found it and settled in.
Meadowlark Country House and Clothing Optional Inn and Bed and Breakfast in Calistoga California
At first we were merely going to take their simplest room, but I could not resist the whirlpool tub! So we paid a little more, and it was entirely worth it.
The room (suite #5) was ample sized, clean and well-furnished. There were little couches and coffee table and behind that our queen size bed. A fireplace was situated in the corner, flanked by bookshelves.
There were also url stacked on the tables, about art, architecture, photography, traveling. I visualized the owners must be cultured and well- read .
Our room at Meadowlark (after we slept in it)
One of the first things we also found was a bowl of mini chocolate candies and two soft bath robes hanging in the toilet for our use. I thought, chocolate AND bath robes supplied? I’m sold!
Our own hearth
French doors looked out onto our own small terrace. It was too chilly to sit outside though.
Our room’s terrace at Meadowlark clothing optional bed and breakfast
Soon, among the owners, Richard, came back and greeted us. I loved having our own fireplace also.
We chewed the fat with Richard for a while as he gave us a tour of the facilities. They had a large mineral-water pool, hot tub and sauna, all enclosed within a gate. That is basically the clothes-optional area. The pool was closed for the season.

The dominant idea that clothing is necessary for reasons of modesty is a cultural assumption. It is an

removed, not when their bodies are exposed.22 Furthermore, a woman feels immodest if seen in her chemise, even though
It is much less revealing than her bikini.23 This also explains why clothed visitors to nudist parks feel uncomfortable in
their state of dress. Psychologist Emery S. Bogardus writes: “Nakedness is never black when it is unconscious,
that is, when there isn’t any awareness of a difference between fact as well as the rule determined from the mores.” Put simply,
for first-time visitors to a nudist park, there is absolutely no hint of embarrassment after an initial reticence, since it is not
contrary to the moral norms.
19. Shame comes from being outside mores, not from particular activities or states. Because nudity is
unremarkable in a nudist setting, nudists may even forget that they’re bare–and commonly do.
20. Psychological research have proven that modesty need not be related to one’s state of attire whatsoever. For , modesty is just not shed with one’s garments; it just takes an alternate kind.24
Psychological studies by Martin Weinberg reasoned that the basic difference between nudists and nonnudists
lies in their differently-assembled definitions of the situation.
non-nudists, they have norms to regulate and restrain immorality, sexuality, and humiliation. Nudists simply
accept the human body as natural, rather than as a source of humiliation.25
21. Many indigenous tribes go entirely naked without shame, even now. It’s just through expanded
contact with the “modern” world that they learn to be “small.” 26
“The missionaries were usually disconcerted to find that the biblically urged
act of ‘clothing the naked’, far from generating an advancement in native morals, almost always resulted in a
deterioration. What url were unintentionally doing was recreating the Garden of Eden situation. Nude,
the primitive cultures had revealed no prurient matter with the body. . . . the morality was generally geared to the
Nude state of the culture. The missionaries, using their cotton short pants and dresses, disrupted this. Nude individuals
actually feel shame when they are first dressed. They develop an exaggerated awareness of the body. It’s as if Adam
and Eve’s ‘aprons’ created the ‘knowledge of good and bad’ rather than being its outcome.” 27
Many Amazon rainforest folks still live clothes-optional by choice, even given an option.28 The
same is true of the aborigines of central Australia.29
22. Even in North America, nudity was commonplace among many native tribes before the arrival of

also the women.”
23. For some indigenous tribes, nudity or near-nudity is a vital portion of the culture.
Paul Ableman clarifies, “very few primitives are absolutely nude. They almost always have ornamentation or
body-modification of some kind, which plays a essential part in their own culture. . . . Into this simple but successful
culture comes the missionary, and obliterates the vital signals beneath his low-cost Western clothes. Among many
primitives, tattooing, scarification and ornamentation conduct highly elaborate information which may, actually, be the

This study, using a longitudinal design, is the first to analyze long-term correlates of
early childhood exposure to parental nudity and primal scenes.

effects of these experiences were found at age 17-18. Truly, trends in the data that were

parental nudity was associated with positive, rather than negative, sexual encounters in
adolescence, but with decreased sexual experience general. Boys exposed to parental nudity
were less likely to have engaged in larceny in adolescence or to have used various
psychedelic drugs and marijuana.

In read of primal scenes, vulnerability was correlated with improved relationships with adults
outside of the family and with higher amounts of self acceptance. exposed to primal
scenes were also less likely to have used drugs like PCP, inhalants, or various
psychedelics in adolescence. The one note of caution was sounded by an important sex of
participant interaction suggesting that males’ exposure to primal scenes was linked
with decreased risk of social “issues” connected with sexuality, while the opposite was
the case for females. Girls in our study who had been exposed to primal scenes
reported increased instances of STD transmission and pregnancy.
