Sitting at home nude is all well and good. In fact it can be terrific. But naturism is almost always better with good company. So with that in mind, here are some July naturist events to get you out and about in the buff.
2 July — World Naturist Day
5 July — International Read Naked Day
Worldwide | From the organizers website: “We invite you to take part by simply reading naked. That’s it. If you’d like to be even more involved in bringing focus back to the ritual of reading BECOME A READ WARRIOR and help us get the word out. Start a naked book club. Get your local books stores involved.”
7 – 16 July — 23rd Annual IMEN Gathering
USA | Maryland — From IMEN (International Men Enjoying Naturism) website: “Enjoy days of relaxation sitting in the tree shaded areas and chatting with new and old friends or lying in the sun in a lounge chair by the pool or dive into the pool for a cool, refreshing swim or take a walk along the nature trails. There are so many choices, but you are in charge of your vacation…….do as much or as little as you choose. In other words, total carefree, liberated relaxation.”
