The Topless Tuesday mega-post

I’ve done this in a half-hearted manner in the past, and Pookes has made a great effort to make it more regular in my recent absence. I note we’ve built up a backlog of ‘Topless Tuesday’ photos, so it’s my intention to use many of these in the following post. After that I don’t expect to undertake too many Topless Tuesday posts in the near future (although Pookes may have a different idea 🙂 )

There’s no story. It’s simply a case of enjoying the photos.

Naturisme TV

Before I began using Spain as a naturist holiday base, in the pre-children days, Mr. Keng & I used to be (still are!) Francophiles, adoring the French culture, climate and

Over the years we’ve visited several naturist locations in France. My own naturist debut took place in Cap D’Agde, before it became, to my tastes, sordid. And we’ve been at La Jenny, Arnaoutchot and other French campsites.


As a result of this, I watch Naturisme TV, a website that promotes French naturist activities in the coming month. Taking the summer off, they’re back with their September edition of their production Natmag tomorrow, September 10th (don’t be surprised if it appears a couple of days late, though). The site continues throughout the winter months too, as there will be some indoor events taking place in the country, as well as reports on what the campsites are planning for their forthcoming summer seasons.

If you don’t know this site, I thoroughly recommend it. I also recommend their associated feature J’ai Teste Pour Vous (‘I tested for you’) in which reporter Nathalie would report each month from a specific French naturist location and try out the different activities, thermal pools, hydrotherapy features, restaurants and so on to give a flavour of them.


I won’t lie 🙂 Naturisme TV is a video version of what I try to achieve with SLN. Indeed, there are little ideas in SLN that owe their existence to Naturisme TV’s lead. So for that, I thank Frederick Charles, the man whose idea Naturisme TV is.

You’ll also find a French naturist forum site called Zerokini linked on Naturisme TV’s pages. We featured Zerokini some time back. It’s a Francophone site, but if you know and can follow French (I read it better than I speak it!) you can get the low-down on everything going on in the world of French naturism there too!

Nathalie had a baby earlier in the year, so presentation duties has fallen to new girl Karel.

Remember: this is a genuine naturist web page. Don’t go expecting to see a lot of full frontal nudes. In that respect Naturisme TV & SLN share a common set of values, to promote healthy, family orientated, positive naturism in our respective spheres.


edited to add (September 10th). Naturisme TV have a note on their page saying the next issue will be published on the 12th of September, this Friday. Keep an eye out for it, folks!


Well, I landed in Spain earlier this morning, through until next Tuesday, and it is, as expected, sunny and hot (anywhere is, generally, sunnier and hotter than Scotland).

As previously reported, I’m not going to avidly post further ‘postcards’, as I think we’ve exhausted that for now, but I will add one or two if I see something new-ish to naturism that I think you may be interested in.

What I’d like to do during the next week is spend my evenings (the main season has ended, so entertainment in the bars is a bit thinner on the ground now, apart from at weekends) playing catch-up on many of the posts that have backed up during my and then Pookes’ absence. Harry & Diane have been snapping away. Barbara has contributed a couple of pieces, and occasional writers Anne & Apricot, who Pookes told us would be contributing, have pieces I’ve/we’ve not been able to publish before.ella pool_001b

I’ve begun assembling the body of what will be SLN12, another ‘full issue’, which I’ll publish next week.

I’d also like to (finally) get the Venus & Mars at Agde series started, with Venus (the female in the duo) effectively finishing off a lengthy tale following yet another summer the couple spent in Cap D’Agde. So…I expect it to be a busy week, SLN-wise, this week, and then it’ll be home to get SLN12 published, and then return to work for what will seem like a long, naturism-free winter 😦

Still, I can’t complain having managed to squeeze in three naturist holidays this year.

As soon as I arrived, despite the unearthly middle-of-the-night start and dawn flight, followed by an hour’s drive to the resort, it was bags down, clothes off and into the pool for a truly refreshing dip. Now, if you’ll excuse me for a couple of hours…I need a siesta! 😉
