Mrs Wombat and I had been down to various sans clothes beaches and when we heard that the ACT nudist club was having an open day, we figured it would be worth a look at.
So on Saturday we parked our towels and headed off to a secret location near Bungendore for their open day.
We did not know what to expect, but we had a fair idea of what it would not be like. If you have seen “Carry on Camping“, then the club was nothing like that.
“Nudist Clubs are about nudity, not sex”. ACT Nudist Club President Bob Toirkens said “Nudity seems to be everywhere, advertisers use it to try and sell stuff, films use it to make us watch a film, but most of what you see has been air-brushed until people are left with this false impression of a body, and feel their bodies do not measure up”.
Reflecting on Bob’s words I look around the pool area at the club. Sure enough there are no super-models or muscle bound men here, just a bunch of average looking people who are comfortable with their body image.
While there, I was told that November 21 to 29 is National Nude Week. This is when the various nudist clubs around Australia promote themselves.
Otherwise Mrs Wombat and I stayed out at the club for a little while and left. We enjoyed ourselves and it had a much better feel to it than the Kambah Pool has.
And trolls, here is a couple of jokes to get you started:
— There is a hole in the fence at the local nudist club. Police are looking into it.
— Did you hear about the BBQ at the nudist club. It turned into a sausage sizzle.
