Burning Man Naked – A Naked City At Burningman

(Guest Blog Norma Of South Florida Free Beaches Who We Love Enormously!)
Norma’s Naked City At Burningman

Doing Burning Man Nude – Ever fantasize about what it’d be like to experience a clothing-optional society? Where the fashion standards of our culture are set aside and being nude in public is deemed appropriate? Fully being a naturist for some 25 years or so, I definitely have.
My husband and I found this kind of location in 2004. It was at the Burning Man art festival held at Black Rock City, Nevada. This temporary non-business community of about 50,000 people comes together for a week each year. They’re there to celebrate radical self-expression.
One of the principles of Burning Man is engagement. Their website states: Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can happen only through the medium of deeply personal contribution. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is encouraged to work. Everybody is invited to play. We make http://nudism-life.com through actions that open the heart.

With this principle in mind, for the last few years, I Have coordinated a Theme Camp called Naked City. Our nude city participates in a regional burn held twice annually in central Florida. Our camp, which is sponsored by The Naturist Society’s (TNS) NOVA program, as well as, South Florida Free Beaches, serves this community. It creates a space where folks can learn about naturism and experience the special feeling of loving 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 have even built an art gallery. But the most significant thing we offer is ourselves and our willingness not just to talkthe chat, but walk the walk of naturism.
Although you will find some other nudies in the bunch, we are definitely in the minority. It’s kind of like having a clothed man in a naturist park we stick out. Yet, we have ever been treated with respect, toleration and kindness with tons of eye contact and tons of questions.
These regional burns are held globally but the principles remain constant. Have a look at http://www.regionals.burningman.com to find the one nearest you. It is not only a chance to experience a distinctive community, but also a chance to discuss naturism with people who are amenable to new ideas.
I recommend that before creating your own camp that you simply attend any of these burns as a participant to actually get the essence of the function. Prepare to be self reliant in regard to your own food, water and shelter. Nothing is for sale and http://x-pot.com or commercial advertisements are allowed.
Naked City will be recreated at Preheat during the weekend of April 13th. If you are thinking about becoming a citizen, you’ll need to get a ticket and this festival sells out. Keep updated on http://www.floridapreheat.com for ticket info.
As with this writing the dates have not been posted. South Florida Free Beaches has posted the images from our After burn in November. We had several art projects this year and had a fantastic time.
If you actually would like to do something about legitimizing naturism, and are courageous enough to mainstream it, that is a fantastic way to put some actions behind those words.
All that you have to do is give the gift of yourself.
