Explaining his passion of being nude, Matt, a media worker from Sydney, said:
“I think the older, beach style events are tacky and worn, but my generation responds to social media driven, gimmicky events like this. The atmosphere was very jovial, there was lots of cheering and psych-out’s. The course was pretty magnificent too.”
“I was always drawn to the sense of freedom, it’s very liberating. You learn to embrace yourself and be more comfortable in your body.Cameras and staring were strictly forbidden at the event, while towels were compulsory for hygiene reasons to ensure that the premises were prepared for future customers who would prefer to keep their clothes on.
Some people who get involved have body image issues, and it’s a great way to overcome that. That’s certainly something I have gotten out of it – but it’s also a great way to meet new people.”
“I’m healthy, but not overly skinny, but if anybody thinks only physically stunning people try naturism, one visit to a nude beach or resort and they will see that isn’t true. Once I realized that myself, it makes you feel so much better about yourself. Nobody is judging you, nobody is critiquing you and that just makes you feel so accepted. That feeling of acceptance is why I love it.”
“Nudity is the great equalizer in society. If you’re chatting to someone, you have no idea if they’re a Fortune 500 CEO, a schoolteacher, politician, bus driver, cleaner or whatever. Everyone is the same — no judgment, no comparison, nothing. It’s impossible not to be relaxed after a while.”The success of the mini golf event has prompted Matt to commence with other ventures. “We have plans for other events including naked tenpin bowling,” he said, “We may also look for a bar or pub in Sydney to run a naked pub night complete with live music. Other ideas include roller skating, themed parties.” So, if you fancy getting in touch with your natural self, then there are plenty more events coming up. However, if you would prefer to keep your kit on, then we can’t blame you. We think we will just stay naked in the comfort of our own homes.
