Diary of a Teenage Nudist
Bianca is an 18 year old who, like many of her age, is about to go to university. Unlike most, however, she grew up in a nudist club. She was a naturist herself until the age of 12, when her self-consciousness, a negative image of her own body, and a lack of other teenagers interested in nudism, led her to cover up. She’s been what other naturists call a ‘textile’ ever since. But recently, she discovered, via the internet, that there is a new generation of teenage nudists. As well as looking into the motivation of nudists, Bianca investigates whether the whole movement is as universally innocent and non-sexual as practitioners claim. From meeting closet nudists who only take their clothes off alone, and witnessing a naked bike ride through central London, to an extraordinary and liberating nudist camp in America, this is Bianca’s open, honest, affectionate and sometimes critical look at what it is to be a naturist.
The details of a survey about nude sunbathing habits yields unsurprising facts:
European women are more likely to go topless than women from other parts of the world, with nearly half of Austrians (49 percent) likely to sunbathe topless.
Spaniards and Germans followed closely behind, with 42 percent and 39 percent respectively saying they were happy to ditch their bikini top at the beach.
In comparison, puritanical Britons and Americans are much less comfortable with holidaying in the nude. While just 12 percent of Britons will strip off at the beach, a slightly more adventurous 13 percent of Americans will sunbathe in the buff.
