Burning Man Unclothed – A Naked City At Burningman

(Guest Blog Norma Of South Florida Free Beaches Who We Adore Extremely!)
Norma’s Naked City At Burningman
Doing Burning Man Nude – Ever fantasize about what it would be like to experience a clothing-optional society? Where the fashion standards of our culture are set aside and being naked in public is deemed appropriate? Being a naturist for some 25 years approximately, I surely have.
nudestspics and I discovered this type of place in 2004. It was at the Burning Man art festival held at Black Rock City, Nevada. This temporary non-commerce community of about 50,000 people comes together for a week each year. They are there to celebrate radical self-expression.
One of the principles of Burning Man is engagement. Their web site states: Our community is dedicated to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the person or in society, can happen only through the medium of deeply personal involvement. We achieve being through doing. Everybody is encouraged to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.
Burnning Man Naked Naked City
With this principle in mind, for the last few years, I’ve organized a Theme Team called Naked City. http://nudests.net/tube/nudist/family-naturism-video-vk.php participates in a regional burn held twice annually in central Florida. Our team, which is sponsored by The Naturist Society’s (TNS) NOVA program, in addition to, South Florida Free Beaches, serves this community. It creates a space where folks can learn about naturism and experience the special feeling of appreciating our recreation while naked.
We have offered body painting, naked yoga, massage, tai chi, sun showers, a nude slip & slide and a wine & cheese party. We pass out N Magazines, postcards from Haulover Beach and printed naturist etiquette standards (among other things). We’ve even assembled http://nudenudist.com/tube/beach/nude-ukraine-beach.php . But the most important thing we offer is ourselves and our willingness not merely to talkthe conversation, but walk the walk of naturism.
Although there are some other nudies in the bunch, we’re undoubtedly in the minority. It’s kind of like having a clothed man in a naturist park we stick out. However, we have been treated with respect, toleration and kindness with lots of eye contact and lots of questions.
These regional burns are held worldwide but the principles remain constant. Take a look at http://www.regionals.burningman.com to find the one nearest you. It is not only an opportunity to experience a distinctive community, but also an opportunity to share naturism with individuals who are open to new ideas.
I suggest that before creating your own camp that you attend one of these burns as a participant to actually get the essence of the function. Prepare to be self-reliant in regard to your food, water and shelter. Nothing is for sale and no vendors or commercial advertisements are allowed.
Naked City will be recreated at Pre-Heat during the weekend of April 13th. If you are considering becoming a citizen, you will have to get a ticket and also this festival sells out. Keep up thus far on http://www.floridapreheat.com for ticket information.
As of the writing the dates have not been posted. South Florida Free Beaches has posted the pictures from our After-burn in November. We’d several art jobs this year and had an excellent time.
If you actually want to do something about legitimizing naturism, and are courageous enough to mainstream it, this really is an excellent way to put some action behind those words.
All you need to do is give the gift of yourself.
