The wish of South African nudists to bare it all on a m stretch of beach near the Mpenjati Nature Reserve, on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, will go ungranted for another festive season. More than two years since the public protector set aside the Ray Nkonyeni municipality's decision to allow nudity in the area, the South African National Naturist Association Sanna is still working on a plan to petition the national government to amend the Sexual Offences Act to allow for legal nudist beaches. Although Bothma made the same statement a year ago , he remained confident that will bring nudists closer to achieving their goals. We are working on a representation to see if we can amend the act to allow nude people on public beaches and places. This will force municipalities to amend their bylaws and we will then reapply for Mpenjati to be a legal naturist beach," said Bothma. At the first public hearing into the proposed nudist beach, at Trafalgar in , residents were divided, with some opposed to "drooping boobs and buttocks" on their beach, while others wanted to strip down without fear of getting in trouble with the law.
By Deborah Arthurs for MailOnline. Tim Higgs, 56, and his team from the Clover Spa in Birmingham joined Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on the breakfast show's sofa to reveal their plans for a very naked festive season. To much guffawing from the seemingly tickled This Morning hosts, the naturists explained their decision - and told the nation it is 'liberating' to go without clothes at Christmas. Higgs, who opened the Clover Spa, a seven-bedroom retreat for naturists, in , says he will be enjoying turkey with all the trimmings unclothed - along with guests who have booked to stay over the festive period.

A pre-Christmas "family-friendly" nudist event at an Auckland beach was "safe, social and accepting", according to a participant - the only party pooper being a Department of Conservation park ranger, who was less impressed with the naturist party. The 'Barely Three Days Before Christmas' event on Sunday urged Aucklanders to embrace what their mother gave them for a "day of naturist beach fun". Although there are no official nude beaches in New Zealand, the bay is typically described as a popular spot for naked beachgoers. She was polite, although lacking a little common sense. The walking track only goes to Pohutukawa Bay or the full Okura bushwalk, and it's quite common to see naturists from the track. Klaver claimed the nudist gathering, which was marketed as a family-friendly outing, was "safe and enjoyable" for children and a number of families attended earlier in the day. Co-organiser Auckland Young Naturist told Newshub roughly 40 to 50 "like-minded people" made use of the opportunity "to be free and not judged by society".
Some people in the city will choose a more eyebrow-raising way to enjoy Christmas and New Year. It is that time of year when we put on our best glad rags and enjoy the festive season but some will be wearing less than others. But swingers, naturists and strip club regulars will all be enjoying the festivities in their own unique way.
