gonatural Magazine March Issue #248 - Children & nudity

Our latest issue of New Zealand gonatural naturist magazine is out now. In this edition we explore the topic of family nudity. Some outside the naturist movement may find this topic challenging, even taboo, however visit any naturist club and although younger folk may not be as common as a few years ago, it is quite normal, safe and a very healthy experience for children. Our story is written by Auckland father Alexander Hagen-Thorn. We also have a story about Nelson Sun Club’s 50th anniversary, and the wonderful Outside the Square rally over the summer holidays.

Follow the expedition to Quarantine Island with Southern Free Beaches. Brent and Cathy go naked in Ningaloo; summer at Golden Bay’s Autumn Farm, and our regular features of Miss Bareall writes, news, Around the country, our NZ Naturist Directory, and the What’s on? calendar.

Thanks to everyone who entered our summer photo competition. These will appear in our June magazine.
