A spokesman for the Pines Naturist Club in the Forest of Dean said "about a dozen" people have joined in recent days and "many others" have applied. The sun brings everybody out," said Dave from the club. He added: "On a hot sunny day unless you're in a nice air conditioned [building] I'm sure you'd like to be getting out of your hot sticky clothes and just relaxing with a cool breeze keeping you comfortable. It's only the energetic who get up to play volleyball or badminton. Another naturism club, The Singles Outdoor Club, which organises nude walks on public footpaths on routes designed to avoid other people, said it had seen "about a 25 percent" increase in the number of members attending. Spokesman Martin Bullen said the attraction was "the general freedom of walking without any tugs and pulls of clothing.

Naturism, nudism…it seemed the same to me. However, some time ago a friend told me about naturism, how she became a member of Irish Naturist Association and how much she enjoyed naturist outings and being in contact with nature, as nature intended. Talking to her inspired a genuine curiosity in me and I felt that I should try, at least try. However, I always told her that my preference would be to experience naturism in a warmer location than Ireland. Of course, I have never dipped my feet in the Irish Sea, despite the insistence of my children. I have always been a little envious of people swimming throughout the whole year in places such as Seapoint or the Forty Foot. A few days ago, my friend invited me to join a naturist group of people to go to the beach. As this was likely to be the last sunny and warm day of the year, I did not want to miss this opportunity. So finally, I postponed my commitments and decided to join, ready for my first nudist experience. How did I feel before going?

Wonderful experience on a very hot and sunny day. Lots of people on beach from all walks of life Nice to stand by waters edge to paddle in nude. Access to sea a bit tricky for the less mobile If you like stones to lie on, fine - there is not a pinpick of sand in sight. You have the sea on one side, on the shore side you have the Volks electric Railway and a road.
