The summer heat creates nudists?

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Blog

11967481_mThe summer heat has made people search for nudist beaches on Google.

There has been temperature records during the summer in Denmark, this has made people search a lot more for nudist beaches, according to Christine Sørensen from Google. Normally there is a rise in searches for nude beaches during July in Denmark, but this year it has been signifcantt – there has been the double amount of searhces compared to last year, says Christine.

“Dansk Naturist Union” DUN (Danish Naturist Organization) – say that they also have noticed that the danes has become more interested in going nude on beaches and camp sites. Herluf Nielsen from DUN tells that they see the same significan interest in going nude and that danes in general has become more interested.
He continues and tells that “He think that people in Denmark has become more open for nudism, because many Danes travel to Southern Europe during their summer holidays – where nudity on the beaches is much more common”.

Being a naturist my self and also living i Denmark – I think it is great news, that more people tend to be interested in nudism. I can only agree with Herluf that the liberal approach to being nude on the beach n countries like France, Spain, Portugal and Croatia probably has a great impact on the growing interest of nude beaches. Danes actually travel a lo, especially in the summer, where the mentioned countries is very popular countries to visit

The question is – Is it the summer heat that creates new nudists or is it the impact of our vacations?

La Terriere naturist beach in France

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Nude beach guides

La TerriereThe beach La Terriere is located near the town La Tranche sur mer.

The beach is one of the finest beaches in the Vendée. With nice sand and a constant reward of blue flag, makes this beach really worth a visit.

The waters / waves is a bit wild, which nakes it great fun to be there. If you have children, do be aware of the waves and the undertow, it can be dangerous for children.

Facilities

There is a carpark close to the sands, it can be very crowded during the summer season though. There is lifeguard, toilets and showes. The facilities is located by the textile part of the beach, and therefore not a fast access for people staying at the natruist part of the beach.

Getting there

I stayed at Le Colobmbier naturist camping when I was there, and got some great driving instructions whhich I will share with you right here.

The driving directions is from Le Colombier naturist camping to the beach:

  • From St. Hermine take the D137 in the direction of Lucon (11 km).
  • At roundabout go right on to the D949 (5 km).
  • At the next roundabout in Lucon take direction “Les Sables d’Olonne”.
  • At the next roundabout go to the right. Turn left in the direction of “Les Sables d’Olonne”.
  • Follow the D949 for 9km turn left in the direction of “La Tranche sur Mer via Curzon” – D46 (Beware! There is a dangerous left hand turn on a bend to the left also).
  • Continue through St. Benoist sur Mer, then at the roundabout take the third exit – D747 – in the direction of “La Tranche sur Mer” (8 km). In La Tranche sur Mer, at the first roundabout turn right, at the second roundabout turn right again. As you enter the village of La Terriere you will see white houses on your left.
  • Drive into the centre and follow signs for “La Plage”. Parking is available behind the beach.
  • Once on the beach turn right and walk approx. 500 meter to the naturist area (beyond the large white sign).

    I got this inforamtion from “Wim De Zwarte” on Facebook. The coordinates for the beach should be N:46° 21.558’ – W:1° 28.524’
    Thanks for sharing :)

3 reasons to sleep in the buff

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Uncategorized

If you stayDo you sleep in the buff? Well I do and I love it – here are three reasons why you should do it too.

You sleep better in the nude

If you haven’t got clothes on while sleeping you will actually sleep better. The reasons is the falling body temperature during the night, this is actually important to have fairly cool surroundings while sleeping. If you have a pajamas it will retain the excessive heat.

Prevent infections

If you sleep without panties, you get air to your genitals, and it can prevent infections,

Lose weight

When you sleep more soundly will decrease your level of the stress hormone cortisol. This will again help keeping your energy and hunger levels in check. The good thing is that sleeping in the buff helps you sleep more soundly.
When your sleep is disrupted, your cortisol will be high when your wake up alarm goes off. This will make you more likely to wake up hungry for comfort foods-and more likely to overeat them.

Sleep naked and enjoy life

Pussy Riot gives speak on this year’s Roskilde Festival in Denmark

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Uncategorized

Pussy Riots in actionRoskilde Festival are generally about music and fun, but there is actually a more serious part of the Roskilde Festival. Therefore Pussy Riot has been invited to this year’s Roskilde Festival. They are going to talk about their case and their activist actions.

Friday, July 4th at 17:30 enter the two previously imprisoned members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina up at the Gloria stage to highlight their newly founded organization ‘Zona Prava’ (Rights zone), which aims to monitor detention conditions for prisoners in Russian prisons and focus on the suppression of human rights, writes the Roskilde Festival in a statement.

It is actually very natural that Roskilde Festvial supports the activists, because it has a long tradition for focusing on human rights. The festival spokeswoman Christina Bilde tells, that they are very happy that Nadya and Masha from Pussy Riot has decided to accept our invitation to visit the festival.

The two artists and political activists have gained some personal experiences where they have been deprived of their artistic freedom and civil rights. The kind of relationship can be difficult to understand in a safe and secure society like Denmark. But all the more reason for us to draw attention to the seriousness of the situation may be beyond our borders – Christina continues.

300000 DKK/ 55000 USD will be donated from the Roskile Festival to the newly formed orginization.
