There’s another cart sale on at the Wash, which I still think of as Fab Free Headquarters.

In these intolerant times, with gay people targeted on a daily basis around the world, it’s important that we send out a strong message that a properly functioning society does not discriminate against people, regardless of their sexuality (colour, creed or gender). Recent events in Orlando show how much hatred their can be against people minding their own business, harming no one. ‘Transgender toilet’ issues in the United States are another example of intolerance. The daily targeting, by state edict, across Putin’s Russia are another example of deep seated homophobia around the globe.

Naturism has long had a great reputation for tolerance and acceptance, not only of size, shape, skin colour but of sexuality. Where I’m staying has a couple of gay clubs, hubs of fun, freedom and an all-embracing acceptance that symbolises the lifestyle. It’s a message we, naturists, need to get out to the wider world with a strong, singular voice.

In naturism, pubic hair has been almost extinct for a decade. There are (ahem!) one or two intrepid enthusiasts for the natural look, but going totally bare in naturism has been the norm in young and old alike. We usually think that depilation is a younger generation’s phenomenon, but mature female naturists have been shaving for a long time now.

From observations on the beach, it would appear that the razor is being put away more regularly this year. We aren’t into a 70s style jungle here, ladies and gentlemen, but I’ve detected that a neat trim is now a much more prevalent style in the younger and middle (30s, 40s) generations. The older generation, however, seem to still be adopting the shaved look.

As I recall, the older generation were last to adopt a shaved look, so perhaps they’re going to be the last to abandon it. I’ll continue with these observations as the week progresses.
