“When I am wearing no clothes, I don’t feel like a naked human being. I feel like a human being.” Glen Donnelly, founder @NudeMovement It’s winter across New Zealand / Aotearoa - the land of the long white cloud. As the majestic landscapes across our small but beautiful country, and the mountains become cloaked in snow, it’s often time to retreat inside next to a cosy log fire and strip off. However 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...

editor@gonatural.co.nz We were very impressed with the stories and wonderful photos about families in gonatural magazine [March 2017]. Some might have said it was too much, but we were delighted to see and hear the stories of everyday New Zealanders sharing their honest values about nudity within their families. Congratulations to all those who participated, it was really important to show others that being naked, especially around children, is normal and okay, and even healthy for the values it teaches. - Vivian Sampson & Family, Blenheim I recently came across your magazine at a friend’s home, and became fascinated with being socially naked,...

making a mountain out of a molehill

(Instagram / jaylenecook_ PHOTO Josh Shaw) When 25 year old Waikato model Jaylene Cook ventured up Mount Taranaki early one May morning, with her photographer-boyfriend, Josh Shaw, she didn’t expect a worldwide debate on nudity. “We did it!,” Jaylene said as she shared the stunning image on the summit of one of New Zealand’s most majestic mountains. “This was by far the hardest thing I have ever done! Both mentally and physically. Two minutes out of the car park I was already hurting, sweating and ready to turn back. But it’s amazing what you can accomplish with the encouragement and support of...

naked art on display

A visit to Canterbury Museum or the Auckland Art Gallery should be high on the agenda of naturist lovers everywhere. The Body Laid Bare exhibition brings a stunning collection from London’s Tate to our shores for the first time. It’s an extensive display of a variety of mediums and worthy of the cover charge, or even gallery membership that allows as many visits as your desire. Meanwhile in Christchurch, the Canterbury Museum is presenting a beautiful display that explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattooing, its rich history and roots in the ukiyo-e art form and influence on modern tattooing practices.

going nautical with friends

“What we need,” pronounced Roger during an exchange of instant messages, “is our own nudist colony!” I picked up on his self-deprecating use of the expression ‘nudist colony’ despite the lack of nuance with his words arriving as information packets on my phone. “Um, OK” I replied, as I wondered how much fun just the two of us might have with our own nudist colony, especially as he lived in Auckland and I was on the Kapiti Coast at the time. Roger suggested we invite our respective significant others, and, along with Noel and Shona from Christchurch, who we had met...
