SALE: Russian naturists enjoy and discuss post Soviet freedom and the new nude phenomenon in Russia — naturism.
When the sun breaks winter’s hold on the Black Sea shores of Odessa in the southern Ukraine, all kinds of spring festivals announce the news. Yes! Summer is on its way, at last!
Fox Bay and Koktebel are names very familiar to fans of Ukrainian naturism. Once again these beaches provide the backdrop for adventure, fun, and games. Our friends travel the area sharing the news that summer is here, and it’s holiday time.
The sun is blazing high in the sky, the sea is blue and warm and inviting, the mountains beckon with their endless volcanic trails, and the naturist families who participate in this annual voyage to the Crimea, in Ukraine, are more than ready to make this period an unforgettable holiday for all ages. So join the fun and enjoy the landscapes as we unfold this tale that begins: Once upon a naked time... in Crimea. 60 mins.
Traditions are important to the naturist community in the Crimea, and tradition has seen a regular performance taking place each second Saturday of August, known as NEPTUNE DAY. A large group of naturists from all over the eastern part of Europe gather to celebrate in their own fashion the dramatic and comic version of the birth of Venus, among other ancient legends.
Summertime, and the living is very easy as the sun shines, the waves roll, and friends abound in endless vacation days of fun and laughter.
We all have our own favorite letter in the alphabet, be it "A" for apple or "Z" for zoo. And there are endless possibilities of course, as different people imagine different objects and situations. But what happens when one letter in particular makes a bold statement, like "N" is for Naturism?
Traditions die hard, and if nothing changes, everything is always different. Koktebel, longtime haven for naturist families, is on the change, and as new hotels and apartment blocks are constructed along the shoreline, and as naturists cling to the last elements of freedom here, the sense of imminent loss is ever present.
The world we live in is a multicolored world, and every experience is a different shade of emotional response and visual satisfaction. Naturism is perhaps more accepting in its concepts of shape and color, as the naked body is already a statement in itself.
The Ukrainian Naturist Organization is unique perhaps even among naturists, and once again they work towards a new visual ideal of total family naturism as they depict the colors of the rainbow with painted bodies and colorful smiles, and it really is a wonder to behold. After ABC - LET’S BE FREE, here is the next chapter of a great educational naturist saga, a true rainbow of happy naturist families having colorful fun in the sun, and what other title could be used but the logical one of THE UNITED COLORS OF NATURISM!
It’s that summery time of the year again, and our friends come together on the beach at Koktebel in the Crimea and line up for another fun filled-festival.
