Second Life’s naturist geography

Look at the four photos above. They’re all from Montalivet, a naturist campsite in France. The bike park exists because so many campers bring bikes with them, and will have ridden 2-3 kms from their camper van, tent or chalet on the other side of the woods in which Montalivet is sited.

This photo (below) looking in the other direction gives an idea of the size and wooded aspect of the site.

Sometimes I think that Second Life beaches sometimes lack a little sparkle where their geography is concerned (not something that’s confined to naturist beaches). Second Life beaches, naturist or textile, are often focused too much on being tropical. Not all beaches in real life are like that. Few, in fact.

What did you see in the photos above? I saw cliffs, waterfalls, plunge pools, streams, rocky rivers, sand dunes and ferned woodland (similar to what you would walk through, or cycle through, from Montalivet’s campsite to its beach.

Of course, I’m not expecting the equivalent of a kilometre of sand with dunes behind it, sim costs would prevent that, but equally these are all naturist locations in real life that are less well addressed in Second Life.

To that end, I’m on a quest to source different and unique spots in Second Life where the skinny-dipping might more accurately reflect naturist opportunity than just a tropical beach.

A mini-series, which will also tie in with our championing of Wild Swimming recently, will be coming up shortly.
