Nude Positive: I’ve created a Medium publication for writing on nudity and nudism

Illustration by the author

As far as I’ve been able to find from the occasional search, there doesn’t seem to be an active publication on Medium with a focus on nudism, or nudity more broadly. So I’ve decided to create one myself, as a home for my own writings on nudity, and I hope a hub for other nudist and nude-curious writers here to share their work too. Welcome to Nude Positive:

I envision this being a place to share works on all aspects of non-sexual nudity, including thoughts on nudism as a lifestyle, philosophy, and movement; nudity in a wider social context; body positivism and body image, nude art, and poetry on those subjects too.

If you write on those subjects and would like to be part of the Nude Positive publication, then leave a note in the comments and I’ll figure out how to make you a writer :)

Just a few quick editorial pointers: I welcome a broad range of points of view and approaches to the topic — Indeed I would strongly like to see nudity discussed from a variety of cultural view points, and from people with many different experiences of nudity and nudism. But I will not be happy to post up anything I can see is coming from a racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, etc angle. While I am generally sex positive, I also don’t see this as a place to discuss sexualised nudity.

On the more practical side of things, some sort of illustration for a post is always good, but only if the image belong to the creator or they otherwise have permission to use it. And obviously posts should be fairly readable when it comes to grammar and spelling. I’m not inclined to edit other people’s work though, so submissions will never altered by me before being published to Nude Positive :)
