I have always wanted to try naturism and in August 2012 I got my wish as my terrified wife and excited kids joined me as we went to a naturist resort in southern France for a few days.

This tells the story of a family's first taste of a naturist resort, written by the husband (whose idea it was). He admits his wife was not too enthusiastic, but was happy enough to give it a try.

However, there's probably something good to say for reading a boo ...more

A short, free eBook about a family taking their first vacation at a nudist resort.

His wife 'E' was hesitant at first while his kids (four and eight) took to it like fish to water.

Writing style is basic and upfront. I admire the author's courage and honesty in posting his account of a lifestyle few of us explore.

This little book takes only an hour to read and is funny as anything. John Harding tells a funny tale of going to a naturalist resort in southern France with his dubious family. It is great fun.
