My POV at life

My bare thoughts about naturistcommunity.com

I mentioned naturistcommunity.com in several blogs, but never really gave you more info about it. I will try to do that by sharing my personal experiences. After 40+ blogs you probably know what kind of guy I am as human being and as naturist. I hope sharing my personal experiences will help you with the decision of becoming a ( paid or free ) member. 


Naturistcommunity.com offers a lot of things for their members: a safe environment for their members, a chat room, several blogs, a forum, a place to share events, a timeline that looks a bit like Facebook, sharing photos, etc. It’s a safe environment for several reasons. One of them is that you can only become a member if your profile picture includes your face. I think they check with reversed image search if it’s legit. When they think it’s legit, you get an email where you can complete entering the website and make your profile complete. There are two options, a free membership and a paid membership. A paid membership obviously gives you more options then a free one. I have a free membership myself, simply because I want to be absolutely sure that I’m a staying member. And for me that takes some time. 


And eventhough I think this page has some great potential, there are some minor things that ” irritate ” me. For instance, as a free member, you can post your photos. Which is awesome. However…. if I go to the photos tab to take a look at my photos… I can’t. So if I want to check out my own photos I have to pay or keep scrolling down my timeline until I find them again. Because I can see them in my timeline. Just not in my albums. Also there are a lot of differences between the mobile site and the desktop site. Last one has way more options like editing your profile for instance. But when I open the desktop site on my phone it doesn’t completely load in, with the result that I’m missing a lot of text on the right side of the page. 


But for the rest, how the site looks and what it has to offer so far, I’m very satisfied. Admins are very active and easy to contact. Members are friendly and warm people and even though a small group is very active and the majority isn’t, I really think this has potential and has a bright future ahead. So if you are looking for a genuine naturist social media platform, this might be something for you.


The chat room needs some work though, because it hasn’t worked on my iPhone since I’m a member. Maybe they could use the same system as nudistclubhouse.com. 

Talk to you guys soon ❤. 

And yes, I know it’s Monday, so here a small weekend update:


Our bedroom is finally finished,


My daughter had her first sleep in her new bed


And Santana is 25 weeks pregnant now. 


Talk to you guys soon ❤.

Diary of a home naturist

Chapter 8: Happy nude year!!!

First of all, happy new year everyone. We all arrived safely in 2017, so let’s make it a good one! I could tell you how our weekend, including New Year’s Eve, was and how we celebrated Christmas but all I can tell is that it was a wonderful time with ( clothed ) family obligations. So I’m not going to do that. What I am going to do though, is looking back at 2016 in a not chronological order. Simply because I had one of my best years last year. Love was great, work was great, naturism was great. Let’s go!


Let’s start off with a closed book. On December 31st I closed all 2Bare2Wear shops as I announced earlier last year. As mentioned earlier, new policies, raised product prizes and an unexpected success with this WordPress page, made me decide to close down the shops. Motivation and time were lacking the last months and it felt like a good thing to do. Björ from #TeamNaturist and I are still looking for a way to bring back the #TeamNaturist gear. In first place to keep producing them as prizes for the #TeamNaturistChallenges and maybe later for sales aswell. When it comes to The Naturist Page merchandise, Jason and I still haven’t looked in to the available options, so if there is any news about that in the near future, I’ll let you know. 


2016 was also the year I made a career move and switched company. The company where I work now gives me the option to be home more often and even make more money then the company I worked for before this one. Also last week I was offered a great opportunity, you could call it a small promotion, which I took with both hands. They asked me if I wanted to be a mentor driver for new colleagues, so I can teach them how our company works. I appreciate the faith and positive motivations this company gives me and will do anything to do my new task the best way I can. 


It also was the year where my daughter learned to walk. A development that came way quicker then I imagined. Time can go so quickly sometimes. 2016 in general went fast for me. But the giant leaps this young ones make are incredible. She makes me more proud every day and I can’t wait to see what she will learn in 2017. 


The greatest achievement in 2016 was meeting the love of my life. This woman made me feel en see things I never could imagine. And eventhough she never saw her self living the life of a naturist, she’s now on my side, in the nude, promoting naturism almost every day. 2016 was the year we found out we were pregnant, 2017 will be the year we will be the parents of a new baby. 


Talking about naturism, it was a fantastic year for both of us when it comes to naturism. For Santana it was the year to experience naturism in the best way possible. For me it was a year of exploring new beaches, resorts and pools. It also was the year for both of us where we decided to become home naturists aswell and grab every moment to drop our clothes. Life couldn’t be greater. It also was the year where I met 2 British naturist friends who became very special to me. One of them is Marc. I talked about him in many blogs and you’ll probably already know what he means to me. The other one is Stuart. A really stand out guy from Bristol. I’m very proud to call him a friend of mine. And eventhough we haven’t talked a lot lately, I know we’re good. 


It was the year where we got to know some amazing nude beaches like Twiske in oostzaan. It also was the year where we had some negative experiences on the beach of Hoek van Holland. A beach we will never visit again after those experiences. At least as long as the people over there don’t know the differences between public sex and social nudity. Again people, show some respect for the other beach visitors and keep those actions at home, not where young families come to have a nice day at the beach. 


And of course it was the year of experiencing naturism with the people we love. Roos, Andre, Benjamin, Pascal and Dorthy, thanks for spending these naturist days with us. Let’s make it a wonderful summer together in 2017 and enjoy our naked sun time together as much as we can. 


I hope 2017 will also be the year where we can visit Wervershoof a second time, where we had a very warm welcome by the most amazing people you can imagine. Anyhow, whatever 2017 will bring for us, I know we will manage it together and that you guys, my readers, will be witness of a lot special moments, here on this naturist blog page. I’ll end this ” looking back blog ” with a small photo compilation of 2016. Thanks for following our year and our life.We’ll talk soon in 2017 ❤.
