Hey beautiful people!
I recently read a blog titled, Is it ok for nudists to sell their nude pictures? The post was on the site Naked Wanderings which is a blog hosted and written by Nick & Lins. If you’re not familiar with Nick & Lins, they are a “Belgian couple in their early 30s, who love traveling the world” (often times naked). I have had the pleasure of communicating with them off and on over the past couple of years. I find them to be an open minded, emotionally intelligent couple.
I admire and honor their blog and their tireless effort to normalize naturism. As a naked blogger myself, I can truly relate to the challenge of blogging for free. I have been blogging without any direct income from my blog posts for over a decade. I started with the blog, Tantrachick.blog . My writings for Tantrachick focused on relationships, sexuality, freedom of expression, and female empowerment.
Then, in the fall of 2017, my monogamous marriage (over 2 decades of loving connection and a total of 7 kids) ended. At the time I was a sex and relationship coach focusing on helping men, women and couples transform their relationships on spiritual, emotional and sexual levels. Unfortunately, because of the personal reflections in my writing, my separation was very public. I faced one of the most challenging times of my life, while at the same time feeling like a failure, which caused me to crash my business. How could I be a divorcing relationship coach? The truth was, I couldn’t. I had to focus on my own emotional healing and transformation.
On new year’s day of 2018, I launched Get Naked With Joy,, which focuses on my naked self portrait journey. In over 11 years of blogging I never made a single penny from my blogs. I enjoy writing on a blog because I’m able to get immediate feedback on the topics I’m passionate about in my day to day life. While writing for Tantrachick I contemplated sharing my naked self. I was raised by my adopted father who happened to be a nudist. During my childhood my mother could barely keep clothes on me (our neighbors were NOT impressed by my naked butt running around the neighborhood). Despite my mother’s best efforts, I still run around naked, lol.
Because the topics on Tantrachick were of a more sensual nature, I decided not to add my non-sexual nudity to that blog. However, when I was facing the darkest time of my life, for some reason, I found healing in stripping down in nature and sharing my naked body and soul with the world. I don’t have any regrets, but I must admit that I didn’t realize the gravity of my choice to go public as a Naturist. René Beauchemin, a Canadian Indigenous Author who writes the blog Robert Longpre wrote an article for the FCN – Federation of Canadian Naturists that was featured in the magazine, Going Natural.
In his article, René wrote:
Joy doesn’t belong to the FCN or any landed or non-landed club. She is a free spirit who dares to be authentic whether clothed or unclothed. Over the past year, I have communicated with Joy and written about her on one of my blog sites, as I do about other naturists around the globe. With most of these others, the idea of freedom to be authentic always seemed to embrace being nude. Typically, they feel free to be clothed or unclothed when the spirit strikes. Rarely do they confront the textile world with their nudity. After all, there is little sense of being free when one is embroiled in conflict.
When René wrote this article, I remember that the word conflict stood out to me. My path as a public Naturist has been mostly accepted by the general public. However, the “conflict” René spoke of in his article recently surfaced in my life. A couple days ago I was sipping my morning coffee naked in front of the wood stove in the little beach house air bnb I’m currently staying in. It was a lovely moment, but then I opened my email email@example.com and the following words altered the mood of that moment.
Comment: If I seen you naked in public, I would grab your little hips from behind and stick my dick in your Warm, Wet Pussy and pump you with excitement until I cum in your little vagina hole. I Love how you flaunt around naked and how you trim your little coochie hair. I’d love to live butt ass naked with you. I would wake up with my erection for you to see Every morning. If your son is a nudist, does he come out with his dick hard and stiff sticking up for you to see? If so, do you smile at it? And you said your dad fondled you when you were younger? I bet he had a Reason. Your Sexy Ass!

PS: 18 emails later and the 21 year old young man who posted that vile comment finally apologized. Anyone who says blogging isn’t work likely hasn’t run a blog before. Trust. It is work!
