Women often tell us that they would love to try Naturism, but that they are too nervous. Of course, here at Diogenes we know that there is no reason to be as Naturism is actually the most relaxed and relaxing way of life there is – and where better to experience it than at Diogenes!
With this in mind we have organised a special day where women can come and try Naturism for themselves. This clothing optional event will have a number of activities, such as inclusive mini massage treatments and hopefully a life drawing workshop for the artistically minded. The whole day will be designed to give women the confidence to try Naturism at their own pace and in their own space. The day will cost just £8 and for this you will get full use of all the club’s facilities in six acres of beautiful grounds around a country house.
Local resident and Diogenes member Emma James who is organising the day said, “We often hear women say they’re quite keen to try naturism but they worry their bodies are not ‘good’ enough or they imagine they’ll be too self conscious, so they don’t tend to tick the interest off their ‘Bucket List’.
The reality is that people come in all shapes and sizes and a naturist environment is a safe, welcoming and wholesome one, where people are accepted for who they are, not what they look like.
We want to encourage women to come and try the liberating experience of naturism for themselves which is why we’re organising this special day, so that local women can see the Club and its amazing facilities and dispel any fears they may have”.
Planning is at an early stage so activities will be added and others may be subject to change, but keep visiting back here for more information, or contact publicity AT diogenessunclub.co DOT uk to request email updates or further information.
We’re looking forward to getting out and meeting as many people at possible at two great events this spring and summer. On May 11th, we will have a stall at The Kings Langley Wellbeing Festival and on June 29th we will be at our local Chalfont St.Peter Feast Day. If you’re in the area, come along and meet us to have a chat!
We’ve had a great time welcoming loads of lovely visitors to our popular skinny dip sessions this winter. With a warm welcome, a warm pool and plenty of cake, everyone had a whale of a time and many newcomers discovered for themselves why Naturism is so liberating, life-affirming and relaxing.
We’ll be taking part in this promotion again for sure, but if you can’t wait until next winter, why not come along for a FREE trial visit? With summer just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to try Naturism for yourself at one of the UK’s premier family friendly Naturist clubs.
Due to popular demand (and a large amount of snow on January 19th!) we have organised a final session of skinny dipping on Saturday February 23rd from 7 till 9 p.m. Book your place here.
It is with regret that we have had to take the tough decision to cancel tomorrow evening’s event. Members who live near to the club have informed us that there has been heavy snowfall in the area and we have already had some people say that they will not be attending due to the current weather. This is not a decision we have taken lightly as we were so looking forward to welcoming everyone to Diogenes, but due to our location we can become fairly inaccessible during snowy weather. With further snow forecast into Saturday, it has left us with no option but to take this decision.
While the session on the 26th is now fully booked,we have spaces on February 2nd and 9th. Apologies for ny inconvenience this has caused you , but you will appreciate the difficulties that this sort of severe weather causes us.
As the wind is howling outside and the rain carries on endlessly, you might think that taking your clothes off to try Naturism is a fairly unappealing prospect. But hey – think again! Imagine a wonderful heated indoor pool and good company and it becomes a whole different prospect. If you’re looking for a new year resolution with a difference, forget those expensive gyms and crowded health clubs and consider Naturism. It’s relaxing, family friendly and great for your wellbeing, body image and self esteem. New to Naturism? Nervous? Don’t be! See our ‘New to Naturism’ page to put you at your ease.
In fact, we are so confident that trying Naturism will be great for you that we’ve teamed up with our friends at the national organisation British Naturism and during January and February 2013 we will be taking part in the Great British Skinny Dip. This promotion is perfect for newcomers (even if you are nervous) and will be held in our super indoor pool. At only £4 they make a great evening out and you are assured of a warm welcome from people who well understand those first time nerves and will soon put you at your ease. These very special sessions are booking fast so hurry as places are limited. They will be held on Saturdays from 7 till 9 p.m. on:
- January 19th – (This session is already fully booked)
- January 26th – (This session is already fully booked)
- February 2nd – Completed
- February 9th – Completed
- February 23rd – Don’t miss out: Register online for a wonderful evening’s swim!

Don’t delay, book today and skinny dip into 2013 at one of the UK’s best Naturist clubs. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Hot news from the BN AGM at Blackthorns: Diogenes Sun Club has won a BN President’s award!
This is a great accolade for us and reflects on everyone who belongs to Diogenes, who continually make our great club such a wonderful place to be.

Why not come along to see for yourself what makes Diogenes special? If you are new to naturism or simply considering giving it a go, don’t worry, we will make you welcome and at ease.

Okay, we’ll admit we’re a bit premature here as summer hasn’t even finished (did it ever start?!), but we’re really excited to announce that in January and February 2013 we will once again be taking part in British Naturism’s new year swim promotion, The Great British Skinny Dip. Our 2012 sessions were over subscribed and we were delighted to introduce lots of people to Diogenes and to meet several complete newcomers who made their first steps into naturism and chose our club to do so!
These friendly and informal sessions are, like everything we do, entirely family friendly and are a great way to try out naturism in a welcoming atmosphere. In fact, many of our guests in early 2012 were so blown away by the welcome they received and the great facilities that Diogenes offers that they subsequently joined us as members and are now part of the Diogenes family!
Why not resolve to try something new in 2013 and come and find out why nearly 4 million people in the UK describe themselves as naturists? It’s a great way to be, excellent for your wellbeing, and you’ll meet some of the friendliest folk to be found anywhere (and we’ll probably throw in some tasty cakes as well!).
The 2012 sessions were filmed by Bucks TV, so if you want to find out what we have to offer see the film here (but ignore the dates mentioned as they were for 2012). Of course, if you can’t wait until 2013, you can arrange a FREE visit now! You may also like to read more about joining us.
Keep an eye on this page for further details as we will be announcing our January and February 2013 dates soon and they’re sure to be popular!
Diogenes will have a pitch at the Chalfont St Peter Feast Day on Saturday June 30th. If you’re visiting, why not come and say hello and perhaps find out some more about our wonderful club and naturism in general? We look forward to meeting you!
Last weekend saw a fantastic turnout as some 28 members of YBN came to Diogenes for their post Easter camp. Any qualms about being under canvas in April soon disappeared in the warm glow of a Diogenes welcome and our guests were soon settled in for the duration. The highlight of the weekend was a lively karaoke evening, fuelled by a magnificent Indian feast prepared by a talented member. The party atmosphere was incredible and both members and guests had a memorable time that will be the talk of the club for some time to come. Between times, the campers enjoyed our beautiful indoor pool and sauna and also pressed our volleyball court into action to work off the aching heads and full stomachs! We’ve got a great deal on offer for naturists in the 18 to 30 age range so why not contact us now to arrange a trial visit
Our happy campers have packed their tents and headed back to the four corners of the UK, taking with them memories of a fantastic weekend. We’ve had a great time, with a special Indian food fest delivered by one of our talented members, followed by a karaoke session. The YBN crew staved off the cold breeze by copious dips in our indoor pool and some serious ‘cooking’ in our sauna.
If you want to join us, why not arrange a visit? If you’re 18 – 30, we’ve got a special membership promotion available as well, and we’d also recommend you contacting our friends at YBN youth AT bn.org DOT uk who will welcome you whether you’re a newcomer or an experienced naturist!
Only a day left until YBN join us for their post Easter weekend camp. It promises to be a great weekend with the highlight being a delicious Indian food fest and karaoke evening. With the indoor pool cranked up to the max, even a little rain won’t pour water on the party mood!
If you want to try naturism at one of the best year round clubs in the south east, why not contact us? If you’re in the 18 to 30 year old age group we’ve got an amazing membership deal for you – get in touch and let us surprise you with how cheap it is to enjoy our facilities!
Our YBN Post Easter Weekend arrangements are taking good shape now, and we’ve definitely secured most of the equipment for the Karaoke evening too (just need to find a good sized flat screen TV or monitor to assist with the sing-along). With complimentary massage treatments available in 30 minute slots over the weekend, plus a spectacular Indian Food Feast evening lined up for Saturday night, we’re expecting this one to get very busy indeed. Club members very welcome to attend and help make our YBN visitors at home.
Busy time in prospect this coming weekend, with a 30+ strong member’s social event organised for the Saturday evening, plus a couple of boule meleés in place for the Sunday afternoon too. Weather looking half reasonable at the moment, so fingers crossed it will be a dry one. Come one come all, dust off your boule and let’s get practising again for the season ahead.
With a second GBSD (Great British Skinny Dip) night being held at Diogenes Sun Club, there were no shortage of willing members happy to attend and help provide a comfortable and friendly atmosphere for those who were brave enough to take that first step and turn up to our wonderful sun club.
With an opportunity to swim naked in our superb indoor pool, those members of the public who chose to shed their inhibitions and visit Diogenes, enjoyed another good evening at the South East’s premier all year round naturist club.
Diogenes Sun Club is helping British Naturism host the nationwide GBSD events throughout January, February and early March. Intended in part, as a means of kick-starting new interest in joining a sun club, the GBSD events are an ideal way of helping UK naturist clubs promote themselves by taking part in the national event (when their facilities permit this).
As our attendance figures show, there is still a healthy interest in joining a naturist club, and when you have one with so many excellent facilities available, the only real decision you have to make is “… when can I come again?”. Diogenes is currently seeking new members, why not contact us today and request your trial visit soonest?
Despite the arctic weather and a good sprinkling of snow thrown in beforehand, the Valentine event evening went ahead as planned. Event stalwarts made the pilgrimage to Costco to stock up on the decorations/chocolates/table-cloths etc etc, and then proceeded to set-up the main lounge in readiness for the evening’s supper party.
Decorations took the theme of red love hearts and roses, and with the judicious positioning of a few choice ballons here and there, the scene was set for a good evening. With no less than 34 members having booked a place, the Chef’s were tasked with creating a supper menu to delight, and they didn’t disappoint. The starters were very well received and once the main courses started to appear it was apparent that the Chef’s had been prepared to excel themselves. Serving up either a stuffed chicken breast en-croute with seasonal vegetables, or a herb encrusted salmon fillet with dauphinoise potatoes the diners were soon making in-roads in to clearing their plates with gusto.
The food was excellent throughout, and it was to strong applause that the kitchen took their thanks for having laid on such a superb evening meal. With desserts aplenty to choose from, and fresh ground coffee with a Lindt chocolate to round off the meal, there were no complaints about the value for money aspect of the affair.
In keeping with true Diogenes style, a raffle was in place, and to ensure that the evening made it’s mark, we created a superb gourmet hamper holding a fabulous Valentine meal for two. Coquilles St-Jacques, Rib-Eye steaks, fresh vegetables, a delicious heart of strawberrys with double cream, and rounded off with a book of chocolates and a bottle of sparkling pink Cava.
The generosity of the members ensured that every ticket for the super prize was snapped up, and the top notch hamper ensured that we raised a cracking £100.00 for the children’s new play equipment fund.
There was also a further raffle for donated prizes and this in turn added an additional £46.00 to the help boost the club’s funds. With entertainment coming from our resident magician and entertainer, the tables were treated to a close up display of magic tricks, which was well received by those who were up close and personal to the sleight of hand action. The main act for the evening was Diogenes very own Mr & Mrs show, with a vigorous grilling of the three willing pairs to answer some very searching and revealing questions about their respective partners.
Contestant No 1, we are so pleased that you decided to share your partner’s recent lingerie purchase with us, but we do wonder whether there should have been quite so much “detail” included ….
However, your daring paid off, and you ultimately picked up the winners prize.
Finishing off the evening with an amusing stand up display of the disappearing bandana (or should that read banana?), and a risky operation to avoid slicing off the hands of members as they were handcuffed inside a guillotine of dubious repute. The audience were chuckling with mirth as the display also included an invisible pack of cards which magically held the correct two of hearts as chosen by a member of the audience – amazing!
For anyone reading this, please note that whilst we are a true family orientated naturist club, evening events of this nature are textile (we do like to dress up too you know!). If you would like to join in the fun, why not consider contacting us today and enquire about a free trial visit to our wonderful club?
Diogenes is investing for the future with a recent Committee agreement to replace and upgrade the children’s play equipment. With one or two pieces of old equipment beginning to look a little tired, the member’s and current Committee wanted to ensure that we gave prospective family members with younger children, every good reason to join Diogenes Sun Club this coming season.
Due to be installed this first quarter, we are removing the tired old swing and monkey bridge climbing frame, and installing some brand new child friendly climbing and activity equipment for the youngsters. With its modular approach we will now be able to add to this system as funds permit and ensure that the club continues to improve its facilities for families with younger children. Even the sandpit is to get a freshen up and have all of the two tonnes of sand replaced anew! With such a delight for the kiddies, there’s no need to venture to the nearest beach, Diogenes has it all here.
Why not make an appointment to come visit us soonest? With lots of naturist facilities for both adults and children of all ages, Diogenes Sun Club should be your first choice for family naturism in the South East of England.
