How to Keep Cool in the HOT Weather!

Diogenes Sun Club paid host to BBC Newsnight last Friday, when a three man crew descended to film a piece about how to keep cool in the hot weather (in at about 26.45 minutes).

Stephen Smith, Presenter and the Culture Correspondent of Newsnight was in the frame along with two of our members, Andrew Welch and Emma James.  Andrew Welch is also the Commercial Manager of British Naturism and deals with media enquiries on a daily basis so is a veritable minefield of naturist facts and figures.  Emma James, a businesswoman, networker and blogger, is a more recent recruit to public naturism, having joined Diogenes in May 2011 and who has thrown herself into naturism and the naturist lifestyle with gusto.

Filming took place late afternoon on a blistering, hot, sunny day, which showed our 60ft heated outdoor pool and the grounds off to full effect.  A number of members came along to take part in the filming and appeared, relaxing in the grounds alongside the pool.

There was the usual predicament, “I can foresee one problem.  Where do we put the microphones?” which resulted in the Producer, gamely on his hands and knees on the ground alongside Andrew and Emma as they were being filmed.

After a long hot day filming, the crew wrapped, leaving to film another segment for the short piece which was screened towards the end of Newsnight on Friday 19 July 2013.  The crew were hot and tired and were they not working, they would surely have been tempted to try naturism for themselves?

Shortly before Kate gave birth to the third in line to the throne (Congratulations!), we also appeared on the Home Page of the BBC: “Naturism or no socks?  How to keep cool.”

We could get used to all this exposure … Here we are on the Home Page of British Naturism too!

So what are you waiting for? Sunshine or showers, there’s always a warm welcome at Diogenes. See our Outdoor Pool and New to Naturism pages for starters. Why not browse more of our website, & check out our wonderful facilities at our family-friendly naturist club? Book a Trial Visit for yourself and discover just how positive naturism is.

And here, appropriately given the regal birth, two recent visitors to Diogenes blogged an entry named: “Buckinghamshire Palace” - written after attending our recent “Friends and Family day” held on 30 June 2013 – see: “The Naked Truth. The Tales and Views of an English Naturist”

Ladies Day Success!

Our first ever ladies day last Saturday was a roaring success.  With temperatures on the Diogenes lawns reaching around 30 degrees, the scene was set for a day to remember – and so it proved.  Several women came along to experience naturism for themselves for the very first time, and their happy faces as they shed their cares along with their clothes was testament to the warm welcome they received.  We soon saw our guests enjoying the beautiful outdoor pool and chatting away with our members like they’d been naturists for ever!  Relaxing treatments from Chantelle of Watford Holistic Therapy, Diane of Mellowland Therapies and our very own Emma James soothed away the stresses of everyday life and added to the relaxed and mellow vibe of the day, which ended with a Diogenes special barbecue!

Truly it was inspirational to see women arriving, unsure what to expect, then within minutes seeing them offload their worries as they took their first steps into naturism.  We see it again and again that this way of life builds a positive body image and self confidence and the women who came along realised that in a naturist environment nobody ‘looks at you’  and that it is a respectful, wholesome and utterly relaxing place to be.

If you missed out on this great event and want to discover naturism for yourself you can apply for a FREE trial visit.  With the current hot weather set to continue, there’s never been a better time!

Diogenes Ladies Day – Saturday July 13th

Well, there’s just one week left until our special ladies introductory day at Diogenes and the programme is shaping up nicely.  We now have three therapists offering treatments as diverse as Reiki, Thai yoga massage, holistic massage and foot massage.  You also get use of the indoor and outdoor pools, the sauna, all the club’s grounds and the day is rounded off with a barbecue.  The current heatwave must have got to us as we are offering all this for just £8 per person!!

Naturism is on the rise in the UK and if you’ve ever skinny dipped or sunbathed nude on holiday then you’ll know it’s the only way to dress in the sunshine!  We know that some people are nervous about the idea of social nudity however, so we have made this day ‘clothes optional’ in case of any nervousness.  We don’t think that will be an issue though.  As a new lady member said last week “this is so empowering, it’s changed me far deeper than I could ever have imagined”!  This from a lady who had, until that very day, never thought she could go nude in front of other people!

Places are filling up, but there’s still room.  Just email publicity AT diogenessunclub.co DOT uk to reserve your place.
