  5. BN210 Winter 2016

    The roar of the presses and the smell of ink can only mean one thing - yes, BN210 is out now! As ever it's a great read that captures all that makes Naturism special.  From the smiling faces on the cover, right through to the back pages, it's packed full of news, reviews and articles of interest.  Some of this issue's highlights (and there really are lots!) are:
    Full reports from a summer of great events - we've got Nudefest, Bare all for Polar Bears and Party in the Stark, among several others. The Great British Skinny Dip - we've got an exciting round up of this major initiative. In another BN first, we presented at the British Psychological Society's annual symposium. Find out what this academic and professional audience thought! Regular columnist Roni describes the Naturist Scale - where are you on it? Three women tell us about their journey into Naturism. We find out why Naturism is great for helping with stress. Two couples tell us of their artistic escapades as part of Spencer Tunick's 'Sea of Hull' project. A campaigning up date - and why Naturists should be proud and reach out. Travel - we explore France - from big resorts to small independent sites. There's also news updates, club reports and much, much more!

  18. BN 212 Summer 2017

    The presses have stopped rolling, the envelopes are being stuffed - yes, your latest BN Magazine is here!  BN 212 is the issue that really taps into the summer ahead of us, packed with features and fully illustrated to help you get the most from your Naturist summer.
    So, what delights do we have to occupy in this issue?  Our articles include: 
    ”Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today”, an appeal to those contemplating taking their first faltering steps into Naturism; What do non-Naturists actually think of us?  It's so rare to see anyone naked in public, is it any wonder that people reach for their phones to call the police?; Ever wanted to try naked hiking? The joys of enjoying the countryside free of clothing and a useful guide to beginners; they're back! Yes, Young British Naturists (YBN) are making a resurgence  We explore the reviews, feedback and legacy from the Great British Skinny Dip documentary.  What did it do for Naturism in the UK, and how do we build on it? Also, read about the experiences of two f the main participants. From Bournemouth to Blackpool, we review BN's now established winter breaks - those great new events that give us some 'kit off time' at a time of year when sunbathing is but a distant memory! Campaigns update - check out our new 'Just One Person' initiative and find out how doing just that could spread the word, gain newcomers, and increase acceptance. Events update - just look at the fabulous range of events coming up . From swims to garden visits - we've got it (un)covered! Are you missing out on key facts when choosing your Naturist Holiday?  Our Holiday Advice Service is here to help, with its team of experts. Stuck for choice?  In our Southern Europe section we review Valalta (Croatia), Ca’ le Scope and Grottamiranda (Italy), Vritomartis (Crete), and El Portus by train!  Also, read reports about the recent group holidays. All of this, plus the usual round up of Naturist and BN news, and, in the first issue without club reports, some really full regional updates and our new enhanced club and swim directory.
    Enjoy!

      The idea of casually mentioning that you are a naturist in a conversation seems easiest for me. Theres no need for a big crescendo beforehand just a friendly conversation.

      I totally agree with the 'no costume' in a sauna philosophy. I have started to use my local council run leisure centre sauna using a towel. They have signs requiring the wearing of swimwear but so far I have not been challenged. I have my answers ready for such a time. The first being the regard to hygiene and the second, the fact that I am wearing a towel is doing the same as a swim costume. If I need to be asked if I am wearing swimwear, then there should be no concern. More people need to do this and it will become acceptable in the UK as it is in Germany and other European countries.

      I think the new leaflet for Scotland is brilliant and I would like to thank Juliette Gill and everyone else from SANER who was involved most sincerely for making it possible.
