In the south of France you will find close to Beziers the biggest naturist village of the world. Over 40,000 lovers of naked lifestyle can be found in high season.
The village was created in the late sixties over the decades has developed to what it is now. To be honest, the architecture is not the most beautiful. It compares with the ski resorts in the French Alps, large concrete buildings with small apartments, big enough for just a roof over your head.
But like in the Alps, you're not here to sit inside, but to enjoy the outdoor life. In Cap d’Agde it's be the nude outdoor life. Since the naturist area is separated from the rest, you are able to walk around naked 24 hours per day. In this area you will find some bars, restaurants and shops. Ever wanted to go nude shopping? This will be your place!
Shopping in Cap d'Agde

Since the village is situated along the Mediterranean, you will also find a fantastic long nude beach, where you can get a nice suntan. At the village side of the beach you will also find a marina, where you can enter with your boat.
At the entrance of the marina

Cap d’Agde provides different kinds of accommodation. In the village you will find apartments and hotel rooms. Don’t expect luxury hotels and apartment. They are standard but convenient. Behind the beach there is also a huge camping site, one of the biggest nude camping grounds in the world. Here you can come with your own tent, caravan or camper, of rent a small bungalow.

At nighttime there are several bars and clubs to go to. It disappointed me a little when I was in Cap d’Agde that everybody dressed up for the night and nudists were not welcome in the bars after 10 PM. I thought this was a nudist village… Anyhow, the people you see at nighttime are partly dressed up for one of the swinger clubs you find in the village.
This swinger issue causes a lot of discussions among the visitors. Since naturism is not sex orientated a vast group of the visitors do not like the swingers. On the other hand, the swingers bring money to the village. This will not be solved soon I think.
All sorts of people from all over the world frequent the village. Families, couples, singles, gays and lesbians are present in the village, so a standard mix from normal clothed life.
You can reach the village quite easily by plane via the airports of Montpellier or Beziers (Düsseldorf, Oslo, Stockholm, London, Bristol and Southhampton), which are very close to Cap d’Agde.
Reconfirming the flight

The surroundings of Cap d’Agde are also worth visiting. Cities like Montpellier, Carcassonne and Barcelona are worth a visit. Also the countryside is nice to visit for some clothed days.
The climate in Cap d’Agde is Mediterranean and the season starts in May. In the off-season periods it can be chilly and cloudy, during summer it is usually warm. But even in summer, cooler days are possible.

Naturism as we know it today is only a century old. Group nudity has, however, existed since the dawn of time. Our distant ancestors lived naked, covering themselves in animal skins only when the weather demanded it. The ancient Olympics were practised naked. The Spartans practised sport in the nude. The Greek word “gymnos” (naked) was the origin of the word “gymnasium” (place to train naked). The Romans constructed public baths in cities across the Empire, where total nudity was required. The Celts went into battle naked. None of this was organised naturism but, apart from the Celtic warriors, these people were naked when circumstances called for it and this nudity did not shock anybody. One only needs to look at ancient art of the Roman Empire or the Middle East to see just how normal nudity was.

Tous à poil ! Le livre - Everyone naked! The book

Already the second-best selling book on Fnac.com (here) and a best-seller among children's books on Amazon (here)! Buy a copy for yourself - it's better than a vote!
A hateful politician (since fallen from grace) has threatened to drag us back into the Dark Ages. He spits out old-fashioned accusations and compares nudity to who-knows-what sort of kinky fantasy.
Claire Franek and Marc Daniau, the authors of the French-language book "Tous à Poil" (Everyone Naked) were awarded the Libbylit Prize for best children's book.
Buy it to support them (and no, I don't get paid a commission!)

Naked in a Museum!
Masculin Masculin, the nude male in art from 1800 to the present day
Exhibition Masculin-Masculin at the Musée d'Orsay

Only two weeks remain to see the exhibition at Musée d'Orsay which has been extended until January 12th 2014 (and with some late night viewings).
Although the thematic organisation of the exhibition is somewhat jumbled, the subject itself is not lacking in interest: it puts male nudity back into art where the female form has dominated for 150 years.
