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.

Sitting cross-legged, metres from a beach, under the welcome shadow of a tree, in meditation…one of life’s pleasures for me. Allow me to show you my world of meditation.
