gonatural Magazine June Issue #241 - Going nautical

From the Editor - Here's our winter edition on New Zealand's naturist magazine, gonatural.

Waikato model Jaylene Cook undertook a 5-hour trek to the top of Mt Taranaki and captured a special naked photo, but not everyone was pleased! It opened a debate that some believed was offensive, even though that was not her intent. How anyone can find the natural body offensive, is offensive in itself, don’t you think?

The Winter Solstice this year will be at 4:24pm on Wednesday, 21 June. How will you celebrate it? How about arranging a photograph of yourself and friends outdoors and send it to gonatural? I’ll publish a selection in our September edition. Be creative and let’s share your winter snaps, wherever you may be.

Brent and his friends talk about their nautical adventures in this issue, along with some wonderful photographs - I’m sure you will be inspired. There's two major naked art exhibitions on in Christchurch and Auckland, both covered in this edition.

Jane Baker is feeling fabulous at 50, and shares her story of becoming a naturist.

I also spent an afternoon with Murray Stewart on the Kapiti Coast, photographing and talking about his creative and musical journey. Daniel Copeland writes again for gonatural about the ethics and etiquette of nudity in a thought-provoking commentary that challenges our ideas. There’s also some wonderful photos of the World Naked Bike Ride held in Golden Bay.
