I'm quoted in today's local newspaper again...

Note how the Thanet Council spokes(wo)man contradicts what is said on the signs! :o

There's many beaches near me, but that one is about 3 miles from here. I cycled past there this morning actually.

This was taken on my local beach about 2 minutes walk from here (nudity warning!): http://www.nakedinthanet.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=387&g2_imageViewsIndex=1

You lucky bastard with such great places around you. I have great nature around me too, it´s basically the "mountains meets the sea" and it´s great! But nothing like those at your place. It looks almost like a place from a movie!!!

It's really sick that some folks are trying to deny others the right to be nude!! i mean.. I'm born naked!! NO one should have the power to force others to wear clothes!!! I really HATE people who believe they own other humans and have the right to tell others how to live their lifes!! What to eat, smoke or drink.. what to wear.. what to say etc..If I want to drive a car.. or be naked.. or smoke.. it's MY choise!!

this planet is getting worse all the time!! People are NOT the same as they used to be!! They think different,,, talk different.. act different.. they ARE different!! at least compeared to the kind of people I grew up with.. It's a fact, and I don't dig it..

Naturist beaches

Postby Tony Papard » Tue Jul 10, 2007 11:26 pm

A lot of fuss about nothing. Many seaside resorts have naturist beaches, including Brighton and Hastings, so I don't see why Margate area shouldn't have at least one.

They are common all over Europe, even in Communist former Yugoslavia.

Why do some Brits get so uptight over this sort of thing? I have sunbathed nude in Yugoslavia, Hastings, Grand Canary, etc. and really thought nothing of it. The beaches are all clearly marked, or so isolated people could hardly come across them accidentally. Even if they did, I don't see the problem quite frankly. As long as you are not doing anything to scare the horses!

And swimming in the sea without the encumberance of swimming trunks for men or bathing costumes/bikinis for women is quite a liberating experience. Besides, some people might want to tan all over. (Not much chance of this in England with our present weather!)

Haha, it's not all breath-taking scenery near here...this was taken in a grubby alley near a tower block about 20 metres from where I'm sitting now (warning: pert little titties!):

There's a large neolithic stone circle called Avebury in Wiltshire. It's the most visited stone circle in the UK, after Stonehenge.
A couple of years back, on the day of a solstice, a bloke was walking around it, nude. He was a pagan, or a druid, or whatever . . and saw it as his ritualistic 'right' to walk around the stones naked. Tourists and visitors, with kids, were pissed off. Letters were sent to papers etc.
Most of my 'megalithic' friends said "awww, it does no harm, it's his right, freedom of expression etc".
All well and good, but there are over a thousand stone circles in the UK where he could have gone on that solstice day - and in most he'd likely have been alone and would have upset no-one.
But then, no-one would have seen him would they? And that's the whole point, isn't it?

Well it might have been his point. But there's about 15 local beaches in Thanet, & the one the naturists have been useing without fuss for decades is the most deserted, the furthest from houses, & the most difficult to get to (it's a good 10 minutes walk from the nearest car park & the climb up & down the cliffs when the tide is in is precarious indeed). It's all very well people saying that should use their gardens, but not all people even have gardens (& when they do people still often complain).

As I pointed out in the newspaper article, in countries like Germany office workers strip off in the city parks during their lunch breaks. This is what I'd like to see here eventually, instead of the very American "nudity = sex" attitude that we seem to be adopting in this country (it's a good job some of the locals don't see all the pubescent foreign students who strip off on the naturist beach sometimes!).

If workers in Swansea stripped off in parks during their lunch breaks they would
A -freeze their dangly bits off esp in this crap summer
B- be attacked by the Hithcockesque pigeons n swans
C- it's the obesity capital of UK so muffins everywhere
D -be picketed by the religious nutters who still revel in their censorship preventing Life Of Brian and the Sex Pistols appearing locally

ps what have the Romans ever done for us? ;-))

Little strange that you prefer to be like the North European folks and want to things that are normal to us "Dutchies", nude beaches, nude campings, hookers and the red light district, smoking pot but are against people smoking real cigarettes. Didn't you know that there are more people dying from alcohol and drunk drivers than from cigarettes?? so the next thing is banning the alcohol (Yes Svein and Perk).
