Florida Spa for Nudists Celebrates October
Three Reasons Nudists Love October
Nudists love October. Not just because the fall foliage and crisp air are invigorating, but it also heralds in NOW’s “Love Your Body Day” October 19th. The American Association for Nude Recreation has for 80 years promoted body image acceptance and personal freedom, believing we are more than our physical appearance, and every person’s body is perfect just the way it is.
Also this month Cypress Cove Nudist Resort & Spa in Kissimmee, Fla., is hosting Nude-A-Palooza IV on Saturday, October 22. It’s a fun-filled event with heart, featuring multiple bands, food and drinks, prizes, and more. A great line-up of tribute bands will appear: The Beatles, John Denver, The Doors, Styx, Nirvana, Queen and AC/DC. All ticket proceeds go to support Rock Pink, whose mission is to bring music and humanity together to raise breast health awareness and support local breast cancer programs.
Also in October ESPN The Magazine’s third annual Body Issue hits. Unlike Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, the magazine features men as well as women and favors athletes over supermodels. Representatives from ESPN say the purpose of the issue is to show the diversity and strength of the human body and that all bodies are different. What’s interesting is that the magazine doesn’t just include beautiful bodies. Past issues of the Body Issue have featured a 350-pound sumo wrestler, a 112-pound jockey, a pregnant USA Softball Olympian and a photo essay on surgery to repair a common sports injury.
