When it comes to the topic of nudism there are very few that know what it truly entails. Everyone has different associations with it, some bad and some good.
All in all nudism is a very wonderful thing especially for those who want to start loving their bodies and appreciating their form for what it is. It’s also a way to come out of your shell and become closer to nature.
Unfortunately not all nude beaches are kind to the LGBT community to it’s always a good thing to look into the history of the places before visiting as well as reviews regarding what has happened in the past. There are many nude beaches all over the world and more and more are becoming LGBTQ friendly. Slowly more and more beaches are becoming nudist friendly, as well as accepting to all gender and sexual identities.
Even though it is a nude beach, remember that you do not have to get nude if you don’t want to. Clothing is simply optional.
Reasons to go to an LGBT friendly nude beach during your holiday vacation include:
- Nude beaches are very liberal and tend to attract open-minded people that are not inclined to shame you for your sexuality, body type, etc.
- Beaches are absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Imagine sitting along the shore with your feet in the sand or in the water. Imagine how peaceful and carefree it feels to soak up the sun while watching the waves cascade towards you. Beach vacations are very calming to the senses.
- Nudism is a freeing practice and can boost your self-confidence and body image. It frees your mind and body from the confines of societal standards. It lets you be you and that is a very important thing especially if you are apart of the LGBT community.
- Being on the beach can really uplift your mood and give you a healthy glow about you.
- It’s FUN!
