San Diego's 'last nudist resort' going textile; festival cancelled amid allegations; and more
Olive Dell suddenly showed up on a listing service for $6.59 million dollars. The owners said it was just for the purpose of market evaluation and not actually an attempt to sell it. Personally I think they are exploring the idea to see if anyone bites.
I know the word "nudist" seems to have fallen out of favour but I still maintain that a large percentage of the general population has no idea what a "naturist" is and thinks it's a synonym for naturalist. Even some people in "the community" say naturalist. And presumably you could be a naturist --- that is, someone who communes with nature --- while still wearing clothes. At least nudist is clear on that point. Anyway, I think I'm fighting a losing battle here.
I always enjoy your columns, Jillian, and look forward to their arrival! 😁
I can see court documents in the near future for DeAnza Springs Resort previous and/or current owners depending on the conditions of the sale and lease agreements that were implemented by the previous owner.
Regarding Nudism.TV, we have run several articles, including this one in June: https://freemannoone.substack.com/p/beyond-the-controversy
While I understand it is seriously disappointing and frustrating to naturists who have become comfortable frequenting a specific location to have that location close. In this case I get a financial imperative to change the social focus of the business. If this is true, perhaps the owners of some of the lots in the complex who are there to enjoy the naturalism aspects it offers, start another group/community that could offer more options at lower costs to more members and rebuild.
The prime focus is communal, total comfort without clothes and the prime goal would be to able to expand opportunities to more people at affordable costs…. Sounds easy eh!
I’m a bit confused or is it just a slow news (nudes) week?
Is being confident with one’s true nude self a real concern for most naturalists
