There’s no doubt about it: Naturism is the most popular topic for readers of this blog, judging by the daily tallies I see.
There hasn’t been a whole lot to talk about in terms of social nudism gatherings since March. I only made it to one swim with my naturism group in Ottawa last winter, and I am doubting we will be getting together in the new season, which would normally start this month.
I’ll miss the gatherings in the hot tub, sauna and swimming pools. And I’ll miss playing basketball — though I have to tell you, I’ll probably wear a sports bra the next time I get to play because bouncy boobs can interfere with a layup.
I would also love to stroll along the sandy beach in the clothing-optional section of Oka Park again with some friends — maybe next year?
How about readers here who are naturists? Have you been able to participate in any social nudism activities with friends since March? Anything on the horizon?
How have you been indulging in the passion that is naturism during these pandemic times?
Travelling restrictions and bad scheduling along with closures did not help at all this summer.
I miss it. I was looking forward to go to Oka. Every single week this summer, I planned to go but never succeded. Then I realized we were in September. Summer is not over, though, there may be some beautiful, warm days ahead. It’s worth hoping again. Don’t you think? 😉
There is still time to go, Richard. It is a lovely spot on a warm, sunny day. The beach and naturism go hand in hand, yes?

Oh yes they do!
Social nudism got completely closed down for me by COVID. All the events I had scheduled were canceled. I don’t belong to a club, can’t afford the dues and I’d still have to drive 90 minutes to get there.
I had a gig lined up as an art model for a local college but that’s history.
Occasionally, I’ll do a nude hike but even that is cut back to almost nothing. June thru now has been nothing but insane heat. One of the odd results of COVID-19 out here is that the outdoors is suddenly popular. Trails that were empty on weekends are now busy during the week. That is, the ones in the higher reaches of the mountains which are the only places cool enough to actually hike.
There are beaches out here but the same thing applies. Ninety minutes to the closest one and if you didn’t get there at 5 in the morning, no parking. The regular beaches are so crowded the textiles have overwhelmed the few clothing optional ones. The nudies are intimidated and don’t show.
I am pretty much on hold until the weather breaks and the COVID ends.
No opportunities in my area for nude social gatherings of late. The local nudist club, of which I am a member, occasionally books a bowling alley exclusively for our use for a Sunday afternoon of bowling in the buff, but covid 19 restrictions put the kabosh on our event that was scheduled for Sept 6, 2020. The summer heat here is brutal – much too hot to enjoy anything outdoors, even hiking without clothing. It’s great in the cooler months, though, so I have something to look forward to.
I went to Oka a few times this summer, there were people, not as much as normal, but it was still nice and relaxing
I’m glad you could go, Stephen. Just thinking about Oka Beach relaxes me. A special place.
LOL! The most popular post (in terms of views) I have ever done was a post about nude hiking from 2 years ago. Regularly outperforms even my most recent posts.
