At my age I would have to go around sucking in my stomach all day, I would feel self conscious. That would be exhausting. It is best sometimes for some ppl to keep their clothes on, at least certain parts covered as not to scare the children. One of my sisters has breasts so large ppl cant help but stare bc she is only 4'11 and has DDDs. They have even asked her how she keeps from falling over.

The sunscreen is Vital. The last time I was nude in the sun, 35 yrs ago. My tits got so blistered I got sun poisoning in my breast and had to have surgery. I keep the 'girls' covered now.

I think nudity is a state of mind and how comfortable you are in your own skin. In my case it would be vanity that keeps my body clad more then a moral issue.

I had a lady that rented from us a while back. She sat around inside all day nekid, I felt uncomfotable to visit her sitting there nekid. It wouldnt have bothered me so much if there were like a room full of nekid ppl but just her there made me feel odd. I tried to be cool but it did bother me. I knew it shouldnt but it just did. You dont see too many nekid ppl runnin' around these parts unless it's dark and they're skinny dippin'.

I suppose no matter how free thinking you are, there is always gonna be something that you dont resonate with.

Just my random thoughts on nudity.

quite honestly, if I ever felt that people weren't welcome to walk around nude at a gathering, I would just simply not go, period.

Each to their own, clothing is optional in life.

The park officials will do everything in their power to discourage nudity. So I strongly advise everyone to STTRREEKKKK across the countryside, dreadheaded and grinning.

Bright Blessings

Rainbow Gathering, Las Choapas, Veracruz, Mexico.

Here are several pictures showing nudity at the Rainbow Gathering held at Las Choapas, Veracruz, Mexico, November 2007-February 2008. The river is the Nanchital River. This flooded badly during the preparation (seed camp) destroying a number of camps. Skinny dipping in the river was very popular. There was less nudity at the site itself. Picture 1 shows skinny dipping 27.1.2008. Picture 2 shows another naked group. Sharp eyed viewers will notice the mud and wonder why. Rainbow events are known for unorthodox and spontaneous activities. In this case the river flooded an acoustic pit for drumming and this was turned into a venue for naked mud wrestling. The picture was taken on 30.12.2007. The last is from the Past lives regression workshop held on 12.2.2008. Picture 1 seems to escapulate the "joix de vivre" of Rainbow gatherings. Gerald

Gerald: Thanks for the pictures. Glad to see nudity hasn't gone totally out of style.

Shameless: I completely understand. My philosophy on nudity has always been, "If you're not comfortable, then I'm not comfortable." I don't get naked because I want to attract attention, either the good kind or the bad kind. I do it because it's fun. Whenever I sense that my nakedness might ruin someone else's good time, I do the team player thing and stay dressed.

(Yeah, missed the gathering again. Maybe I can get time off this year...)

now that this thread has been revived, I finally reply, and awww, you certainly construct language like the extremely open-hearted, non creepy type of nudist! ;-) (((((()))))) And you certainly don't have to retreat to bare all (though yeah sometimes that's fun, naked yoga, meditation or whatever) You'll see. There's lots of levels, onion style, at these things and it's not like you're working in kitchens all the time, at most (90%) kitchens you're certainly still welcome to hang around nude, and hang around paths and bridges and fire pits, etc. etc., just be keen to the vibe, I know that sounds over the top hippie speak but yeah and you will be fine.
Thank you, Becca. When and if I get the chance, I will do my best to -- how you say? -- be keen to the vibe.

damn good point about the LEOs,,, but usually you know theyre coming llooong before you see them. Its kinda hard to get snuck up on at a gathering. But keep the nudity outta kiddie village and jesus kitchen,, most of the family there just want that respect. Other than that heed that warning abnout sunscreen,,, boiled shrimp doesnt even come close to the way ive seen some people blister up and fry,, the 4th at midday can be a long and painful one if youre not careful,, try what the gypsies had goin on in colorado,,, big rainbow umbrella.

Here are some more images of nudity at the Mexican Rainbow Gathering 2007-8. 1. Sunbathing on the banks of the Nanchital River. 2. Using a rope on the far side of the Nanchital River. 3. Fixing a leak in the tarpaulin cover over the kitchen. Jusu Kontio, aka Suomi, from Finland, is hoisted up. 4. A group photograph taken on the closure of the gathering. The naked brother is Sergio. Casual nudity at the Gathering was routine and common in the more communal parts such as the kitchen and around the sacred fire. On 9.2.08, the day of the final circle, a variety of activities happened around the central fire : singing and chanting, a childrens workshop, seated family, brothers and sisters coming and going, juggling and a frisbee game. Of the jugglers one was naked. One of the three brothers playing with a frisbee was naked : his penis swung about conspicuously as he caught and returned the object. This information is taken from the Gathering video. Nudity at the Gathering was absolutely accepted. There were no restrictions. This was perhaps a reaction to the previous Gathering in Thailand where nudity was limited. Gerald.
