    Just seen you guys on c4 and thought i would come and say ignore any negative feedback and listen to the positive comments. I think its such a wicked idea what you are doing, everyone should feel comfortable in their body and everyone is different. You are sending out such a positive refreshing message. We are all beautiful !!! 🙂

    Nude fine, but Vegan ! Seriously. 😉

    Only kidding.

    I was always really shy but got chucked in at the deep end when I discovered that Austrian saunas are textile free… with 5 British police women.

    Good luck to you all, I may try some of the recipes too.

    Well done you guys. Enjoy.
    Alex If you’re into picknick fare the beach at Morfa Dyffryn (between Barmouth & Harlech) is the place to enjoy it. and its not too far from Manchester! xx

    Well done guys! Enjoyed the programme, you all seem pleasant, intelligent, thoughtful people. Hope you don’t get too much negativity, and if you do, don’t ponder on it too much!

    At last!!!
    Congratulations to you all for standing up for your beliefs.
    I am 61 and have disliked cloths for as long as I can remember. I believe that cloths serve one purpose and that is to keep me warm and dry, other than that I have no wish to wear them.
    NO I’m not a sexual deviant, now at my time of life and health, sex is the furthest thing from my mind. It’s the ability to let Mother Nature reach parts that society have deemed private and not give a dam who sees or cares.
    I am a member of a fine nudist club called Oakewood near Brentwood in Essex and enjoy the warmth of the sun and of the fellow members and I suggest to those that mock, ‘Try before you Buy’.
    I hope your desires, beliefs and actions last you a lifetime,

      After experiencing a clothing optional beach in Miami (where it’s considerably warmer than here!), I’ve become interested in naturism. It’s a shame it appears to be like a secret society in this country.

      You were making some good points. If everybody could see how ordinary everybody else looked, people wouldn’t have so many hang-ups. But then there’s a whole industry dedicated to exploiting those insecurities.

      Let me know of any events near Manchester and I might come and show some support.

    ah, you guys are fab.. loved the program, think you guys are an inspiration for getting over your own hang ups and getting the message out there, hope others follow suit, all bodies are beautiful, we should celebrate that !!!!

    Just watched the programme on 4OD – brilliant. Well done to all of you! My friend invited me to the Manchester art exhibition but I wimped out; I wish I’d gone now.

    I’ve always had a very negative image of my own body, although I am getting a bit more positive now. The TV programme was really good, because it made me realise that I’m not the only who is a bit nervous of stripping off. At the end of the day, we have nothing to be ashamed of – if there’s one thing we’ve all got, it’s a body! You’ve given me a bit more confidence and, who knows, I might even come along to the next event.

    When I saw the trailer for last nights programme I feared it would be another snigger and titter film slanted towards the perennial British default to treat Nudity as some kind of aberration. You brave and beautiful people looked so natural and talked with such sanity it was wonderful. I have been nude in our home for decades and still my friends giggle with embarrassment. Not at the sight of me, ( they would be too timid to be with me naked ) its just the thought of it that unnerves them. How sad is that!
    I will be following your blog from now on as I have discovered cooking. Thank you for sharing so much of yourselves with such dignity and humour.

    I watched you on Channel Four last night, and was really – warmed, I think the word is, with your ideas and ideals. I’m a vegan, and a person who is very interested in de-sexualising the naked body, and normalising its presence. I found you inspiring, and I hope that you feel proud, because I have no doubt you will have touched many people.

    I would love to take the step and do something equally innovative, but as a person with some scars and remnants of eczema from having severe eczema as a teen, I have always feared that in a nude context people would be concerned I had something contagious. Even though my patches are tiny and scarce now, as a teen when I was severe, at least a teacher a week would pull me aside and shout that I shouldn’t be in school if I was contagious. Which I wasn’t. As you can imagine, that’s dented my confidence somewhat. Last summer was the first time in eleven years I went outside with bare legs.

    Few tears here as I write this, it feels ridiculous that as a 22 year old size ten fairly pretty person nudity should be such a problem.

    Keep going guys – ignore the idiotic comments you mentioned on the show.

    • Robert (Bob) Grieve January 13, 2012 at 9:49 pm #

      Please Amy (or Rebecca),

      I have scars. I have bits missing. I have spine problems and so do most my friends at ‘Oakwood Sun Club’ but once you remove the fear, you remove the scars.
      Please join in, I know you want to and you will always wonder how it might have been if you don’t.
      If it doesn’t work for you then at least you did it!!!

    I downloaded the episode from the net, I live in Taupo, New Zealand and I sleep naked, I fully support nudism.
    You guys rock! This is a great blog! Keep going!

    What I like the most is that you are naked without being exploited, compromising your dignity or giving into the over sexualised image of the naked body. You’re showing a very rare type of nakedness – the natural one!

  16. Hannah Saunders January 19, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    You guys are inspirational! I watched My daughter the teenage nudist earlier and i think what you’re all doing is truly admirable! I’m study photography and find naturism fascinating, one day i’d love to produce a series of photographs on the subject. Blog is fab too by the way!

    Just saw the doco on TV One in Auckland New Zealand and was tremendously impressed by the way you are courageously leading a very gentle and natural revolution. Keep up the great work. Drew
