Cit: “If you’re a keen advocate for naturism, and you haven't yet made a visit to Ile du Levant, you need to move that up on your bucket list. It’s one of a handful of places that has self-identified as the birthplace of naturism.”

Cit: “If you ask Nick and Lins, the virtues of the ‘nakation’ even border on the therapeutic. ‘A lady we met in a naturist resort in Thailand told us this story about how her friend was advised by a psychiatrist to give nudism a try’, says Nick. The woman overcame her fragilities and issues, largely due to the shared vulnerability and sense of conquered fear she experienced as a result of nuding up with others. ‘When we met a psychologist at a nudist resort in Mexico, we told her this story. Her reply was pretty simple: «Oh, I prescribe that all the time.»’.”

They are on 'nakation', the term for holidaying without clothes, at Katikati Naturist Park, the only private nudist park in the North Island and one of only two private naturist holiday resorts in New Zealand, although there are 17 landed clubs around the country.
The couple spotted a road sign pointing to the naturist park on the highway towards Tauranga, and turned down the 1.5km rural lane to discover the camp, set in 5.7 hectares of native bush alongside the Uretara stream.
It's their first time in a naturist camp.
‘If you had asked me five years ago would I be in a place like this, I would have said no. To the outside, it may seem weird but it's really not. It's chill, relaxed.’”

Cit: “[…] For such a progressive country […] we've still got some pretty archaic views on things.
This week alone, we've had headlines about a mum being asked to cover up while breastfeeding her child and a family shocked after spotting a group of naked swimmers in a public reserve.
Does any major trauma come from seeing a stranger's intimate body parts?
If the answer is yes, you've really got to start asking yourself why. […] If you're getting your knickers in a twist, maybe the knickers are the problem.” – Read more:
Several performances of the play "Nackt" [en: "Nude"] , written by the Dutch director Lizzy Timmers, are currently taking place at the Theaterhaus Jena.
Information about the play and the performance (theaterhaus-jena.de)
What could be more obvious with this topic than to open at least one of the performances to interested naturists? So, some of them have taken the initiative and asked the theatre for such an event. The theatre management is open and positive about the idea and now invites spectators to attend the performance on Saturday, 15 February 2020 in the nude.
Link to the theatre's playing schedule (theaterhaus-jena.de)
Part of the auditorium will be reserved for naturists. If you would like to participate, you can register here.
Calendar of nudevents (excerpt)
The theatre itself also announces the event as "FKK-Tag" [en: "naturist day"] both in the programme and in a flyer and also accepts registrations. We hurried up, because the theatre hall is relatively small and the number of seats in the hall is limited!
