The Terra Cotta Inn will be having our 16th annual fun casino night party this Saturday January 8th. It's the most fun you can have gambling with your clothes off! There are just 4 rooms left to book.

We'll have a black jack table, roulette wheel, and craps table with professional dealers. The party is free for guests booked into our hotel, The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa located in sunny Palm Springs, California.

We have the party in our large living room. There will be a roaring fire so you can be nice and toasty warm and nude as you gamble.

Since you can't gamble nude in Las Vegas, we bring Las Vegas to Palm Springs.

We have free drinks and free snacks at the party and we give away $750 in FREE prizes. The grand prize is two free nights at the Terra Cotta Inn which you get to use while you are here. This means you have a 1 in 17 chance of winning the grand prize.

Plus, we should have great sunny weather then. Perfect topless and nude sunbathing weather.

Topless and nude sunbathers are lucky as they get to stay in one of the best small resorts in all Palm Springs. Just this December in Palm Springs Life Magazine, the Best of the Best issue, we were selected as the BEST boutique hotel in ALL the Palm Springs area, pretty cool for nude sunbathers. And we were picked the best not because we were exclusive and snobby. Quite the contrary, we were picked the best because we are so friendly, fun, and a great value.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

December 19th is the 16th Anniversary of the founding of The Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs, CA


We're celebrating. Today, December 19th, 2010 is the 16th anniversary of our opening of The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa located in sunny Palm Springs, California.

It has been a fun 16 years. We've met interesting, fun guests from around the world although most come from all over the US, Canada, England, and Australia

We are thankful for all the great friends we've made at at our resort. We're thankful for all your fantastic support. We average just over an 80% repeat guest rate with people from around the world. That type of loyalty is a phenomenal rate and unheard of in the travel industry.

We are still considered the best nudist resort for couples trying topless and nude sunbathing for the first time in the US if not the world.

And this December 2010, Palm Springs Life Magazine in their Best of the Best issue picked us as the BEST small resort in the whole Palm Springs area. That is so cool that nudists when they vacation in Palm Springs get to stay at the best place.

There were many reasons why we were picked. We weren't picked because we are elite, and snobby. We let others stake claim to those reasons. Some of the reasons were because we are so much fun, so friendly, and one of the best values of ALL hotels in Palm Springs.

Also our spa was picked as #3 BEST day spa in the whole Palm Springs area. Not only do nudists stay at the best place, but they get the Best massages in Palm Springs too!

So if you have always wanted to try topless or nude sunbathing, give us a call at 800-786-6938.

71% of Small businesses in the US still don't use Social Media


Social media has been great for our nude sunbathing business. I've been blogging for 4 years now. So many guests heard about us for the first time because of this blog. Also once Facebook allowed business pages to be "liked" that has also been a great way to tell everyone about nude recreation and The Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs, California. Also, we were the FIRST nudist resort to use twitter over 2 years ago.

It takes time to properly do social media. But, what I notice is those nudist resorts that use social media marketing hit or miss or not at all are struggling getting and retaining guests. Those that invest the time to use social media marketing wisely are very popular like us.

Here's the story:

"Majority Of Small Businesses Still Not Using Social Media

Discover relays disappointing stats

Facebook and Twitter are a part of many people's everyday lives, but lots of small business owners still aren't taking advantage of those potential "in"s. New data from Discover indicates that 71 percent of small businesses don't use social media for any sort of self-promotion.

Discover said in a statement, "In polls conducted in April and October of this year, the percentage of small business owners who are members of an online social networking community increased from 48 percent to 59 percent. But only 29 percent of all small businesses said last month that they have ever used social networking websites to promote their businesses."

...A separate profile can be useful for making a business more visible, though. Discover said, "36 percent of approximately 3,000 consumers told Discover that they would consider using a small business that they heard about through a social or business networking site, up from 31 percent in 2007."

The story of why there is an Angel on top of the Christmas tree


It's interesting that many "modern" traditions like kissing under mistletoe go back thousands of years. For instance, from about.com: "But what of the history of mistletoe pertaining to kissing under it? ...tracing the history of mistletoe-induced kissing means going back to ancient Scandinavia -- to custom and the Norse myths: "It was also the plant of peace in Scandinavian antiquity. If enemies met by chance beneath it in a forest, they laid down their arms and maintained a truce until the next day." This ancient Scandinavian custom led to the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe..."

Well the story of why there is an angel on top of Christmas trees is even more fascinating. A guest sent me the true story that most people don't know:

"When ten of Santa`s top elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs. Claus announced her Mother was coming, which stressed Santa out even more.

On Christmas eve when Santa went to harness the reindeer, he learned three were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where.

As he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, and the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered about.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup eggnog and a double shot of rum. But he discovered the elves had drunk all the rum.

In his frustration, Santa accidentally dropped his cup, and it shattered all over the kitchen floor.

When Santa got the broom, he found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of it and it was worthless.

Just then the doorbell rang. An irritated Santa yanked open the door. There stood a sweet little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

"What do ya want?" glowered Santa.

The angel said very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn`t this a lovely day? I have this beautiful Christmas tree just for you. Where would you like me to stick it?"

And so began the tradition of the little angel sitting on top of the Christmas tree."

Not a lot of people know this. I checked it on snopes so it's got to be true. (Just kidding) Hope you liked the story.

AANR and Vermont Teddy bear Company Team up with the Skinny Dip Bear


AANR, The American Association for Nude Recreation is such a great organization. They have done so much to promote nude recreation in the US. Their latest is they have teamed up with the Vermont Teddy Bear company and created the Official AANR Skinny Dip Bear. Above is a photo.

I salute AANR for selecting the Vermont Teddy Bear company. It is an American company and the teddy bears are made in the USA. They could have gone with some cheaply made bears made in China. Instead they went quality which is what AANR symbolizes. I am proud that they picked and American company to make the bears.

We intend to buy a Skinny Dip bear for Terra Cotta Inn.

Teddy Bears are named after President Teddy Roosevelt. He is one of the more famous skinny dippers in American history. So it is even more fitting that there is a bare Teddy Bear.

And to kick off the AANR Teddy Bear, they have a promotion.

Here is from the AANR Website:

"AANR Skinny-Dip Bear Debuts
Posted on November 29, 2010 by admin

AANR Skinny-Dip Bear
You already recognize AANR as the go-to source regarding the great American tradition of skinny-dipping. Made by the Vermont Teddy Bear Company especially for AANR, this Birthday Suit Bear’s coat comes off to reveal his naked body underneath. His sash declares “I Love Skinny Dipping” with the AANR logo prominently featured.

The AANR Skinny-Dip Bear encourages people to participate in this healthy, open, safe and friendly activity, while supporting the important role of AANR to protect their right to skinny-dip in appropriate settings.

Enter our contest by letting us know the most interesting place where you would take this cute, cuddly skinny-dipper. You could win the very first AANR Skinny-Dip Bear before they are even sold by having the most creative entry. Leave your comments below. The contest ends Sunday, December 5, 2010."

Do NOT post on the Terra Cotta Inn blog where you would like to go with the Teddy Bear. Post on the AANR blog.

CBS TV Host of the Late, Late Show Comedian Craig Ferguson to perform in Palm Springs, Friday December 3rd - Tickets still available


Palm Springs is the best city to vacation in. We have lots of famous music acts and comedians perform in town. Fantasy Springs casino has the famous CBS Late, Late Show TV Comedian Craig Ferguson performing this Friday Dec 3rd.

We still have rooms available for this weekend. Call us at 800-786-6938 to book your room.


"From The Fantasy Springs Website:

CRAIG FERGUSON

8PM · FRIDAY , DECEMBER 3rd
SPECIAL EVENTS CENTER
TICKETS $39 - $69 • Purchase Tickets

Call 800-827-2946 for Craig Ferguson Reservations.

Craig Ferguson entered the world of late night comedy following a diverse and eclectic career that encompasses film, television and the stage. Since taking the helm of the Late, Late Show on January 3, 2005, the show has set all-time viewer records in the five years that it has been on the air. Craig most recently was seen in the highly successful animated feature “How to Train Your Dragon” as the Viking, ‘Gobber.’
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ferguson got his start in the entertainment industry as a drummer for some of the worst punk bands in the U.K., a profession he held for several years. Following his musical stint, he began bartending in a local pub in Glasgow where he was introduced to Michael Boyd, the artistic director of The Tron Theatre in Glasgow, who persuaded Ferguson to give acting a go. After several low paying acting gigs, Ferguson discovered he had a knack for comedy and was soon the star of his own BBC television show, The Ferguson Theory.

After several stints on the English comedy circuit, Ferguson brought his act to America in 1995 to star with Betty White and Marie Osmond in the short-lived ABC comedy Maybe This Time. After the show ended, ABC decided to add the talented Scotsman to The Drew Carey Show, playing Drew Carey's boss, Nigel Wick, from 1996-2003.

Ferguson has written the feature films The Big Tease and Saving Grace. In 2003, he made his directorial debut with I'll Be There, which he also wrote and starred in. I'll Be There went on to receive the Audience Award for Best Film at the Aspen, Dallas, and Valencia film festivals. Craig was also named "best new director" at the Napa Valley Film Festival. Ferguson’s other film credits include, Niagra Motel, Lenny the Wonder Dog, Prendimi l’anima, Life Without Dick, Chain of Fools, Born Romantic and The Big Tease.

In April 2006, Ferguson debuted his first novel entitled Between The Bridge and The River, which made it onto the best seller list. In the novel, two childhood friends from Scotland and two illegitimate half-brothers from the deep South suffer and enjoy all manner of bizarre adventures which, it turns out, are somehow interconnected-and, even more surprisingly, meaningful. The eclectic cast of characters features Socrates, Carl Jung, and Tony Randall; while love, greed, hope, revenge, organized religion, and Hollywood also make special appearances.

Since coming into his own on the “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and winning his first Emmy nomination in 2006, Craig has seem to become the topic of conversation within the media and a growing trend of success in 2010. In February 2008 he succeeded in becoming a US Citizen mentioning that this is his home after thirteen years and “my heart is here.” Soon after, Craig had landed himself the biggest date of all; A date with President Bush hosting the White House Correspondence Dinner. Critics raved of his witty and comical deliverance speech to the 3,000 attendees who included political journalists, celebrities, and Washington’s power players. Last fall, Harper Collins published Ferguson’s memoir America On Purpose- a book about why and how late night funnyman, Craig Ferguson became an American. The book was listed on the New York Times bestseller list and continues to sell well to date.

Ferguson also serves on the board of the Lollipop Theater Network. The mission of the Lollipop Theater Network is to bring movies that are currently in theatrical release to hospitalized children facing chronic and life threatening illness nationwide."

So have some fun this weekend. See Craig Ferguson and try nude sunbathing. It'll be a fun weekend away.

Naturist Action Committee Alert asks for your support in California

**********************************************************************
NATURIST ACTION COMMITTEE
ACTION ALERT
**********************************************************************
http://www.naturistaction.org
**********************************************************************
Copyright 2010 by the Naturist Action Committee, which is responsible for its content. Permission is granted for the posting, forwarding or redistribution of this message, provided that it is reproduced in its entirety and without alteration.

DATE: November 23, 2010
SUBJECT: California
TO: Naturists and other concerned citizens

Dear Naturist,

This is an Action Alert from the Naturist Action Committee. NAC is asking for your immediate involvement in an effort to have the State of California create officially designated areas for clothing-optional recreation in state parks.

CALIFORNIA STATE PARK AND RECREATION COMMISSION
The California State Park and Recreation Commission is NOT the same thing as the State Parks and Recreation Department. The Commission has specific authorities and responsibilities which are defined in California law. Those include the approval of general plans for units of the State Park System, classifying units of the System, establishing general policies for the guidance of the Director of State Parks in the administration, protection and development of the System, and recommending to the Director a comprehensive recreation policy for the state.

As allowed by law, NAC and its allies have submitted a petition asking that portions of specified state parks be set aside for clothing-optional recreation. The State Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) has simply ignored the properly submitted petition.

Meanwhile, since DPR has chosen to make selective termination of the longstanding Cahill Policy, there is presently no statewide or comprehensive policy that addresses the responsible nude use of portions of state park units.

NAC is looking for the State Park bureaucracy to assert some leadership. The Commission has the authority and the responsibility to establish general policy and to recommend policy to DPR, and that’s what NAC is seeking.

ACTION 1: ATTEND COMMISSION’S PUBLIC MEETING ON DECEMBER 10
If you’re in the southern California area, NAC requests that you attend a public meeting of the State Park and Recreation Commission that is scheduled to be held in San Diego on Friday, December 10, 2010.

DATE: Friday, December 10, 2010
TIME: 9:00 a.m.
LOCATION:
Old Town Theatre
4040 Twiggs Street
Old Town San Diego State Historic Park
San Diego, California

Members of the public will have the opportunity to give brief statements. But whether you speak or not, your presence is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to lend support to the message of naturists.

We seek the setting aside of areas for clothing-optional recreation in State Park units.

There are few items on the December 10 meeting agenda, and the meeting is likely to move quickly. Please plan to be at the the Old Town Theatre no later than a half hour before the meeting starts.

If you’re planning to attend the meeting, please contact:
NAC board member Allen Baylis
rab@baylislaw.com
(714) 962-0915

or NAC executive director Bob Morton
execdir@naturistaction.org
(512) 282-6621

ACTION 2: WRITE TO THE COMMISSION
If you’re unable to attend the meeting, you can still help. NAC asks that you write to the Commission. Send your comments by e-mail, fax or surface mail. Those who will be at the meeting on December 10 are also encouraged to write.

WHO SHOULD WRITE?

NAC is requesting ALL NATURISTS and other concerned individuals to contact California officials on this important matter, regardless of your place of residence. California understands the importance of out-of-state visitors who come to enjoy the state’s beaches, lakes and streams. The opportunity to provide diverse recreational opportunities applies to those visitors, as well as to California residents. While all are encouraged to make their voices heard, the participation of Californians is, of course, particularly important.

Send a letter, a fax or an e-mail. Phone calls will likely be ineffective in this specific context.

Sacramento, CA 94296
FAX: (916) 654-6374
Louis Nastro, Assistant to the Commission
E-MAIL: LNastro@parks.ca.gov

Send a copy to:

California Department of Natural Resources

Sacramento, CA 95814
FAX: (916) 653-8102
E-MAIL: secretary@resources.ca.gov

NAC encourages you to send copies of your faxes and paper mail to:
NAC, P.O. Box 132, Oshkosh, WI 54903.
Send copies of your e-mails to:
CA@naturistaction.org


WHAT SHOULD YOU SAY?

When you write:

a) Be polite.

b) Be known. Give your name and address. If you are a California resident or a frequent visitor to California, be sure to point that out. Anonymous letters have very little impact.

c) Be focused. Keep your correspondence brief and on target.

d) Be positive. Remember that we’re trying to ENCOURAGE the Parks Department to do something. Please do not take a scolding tone.

e) Be clear. Say that you SUPPORT the petition asking for designation of clothing-optional areas in units of the State Park System.

Additional writing points:

a) This is NOT just about San Onofre State Beach. Although that beach was the first State Park unit at which DPR has killed its policy for managing clothing-optional recreation, it will not be the last. The present lack of a comprehensive statewide policy threatens ALL clothing-optional areas in California State Park units. Consider the implications for Black’s (Torrey Pines), Gaviota, Bonny Doon and many others.

b) For thirty years, the Department’s Cahill Policy allowed a means to manage for clothing-optional recreation in units of the State Park system. The nullification of the Cahill Policy has left the department with no statewide policy to address a form of recreation that’s obviously popular with the public. The submitted petition proposes a specific way to address the management of clothing-optional recreation.

c) Officials of the Parks and Rec Department have pointed to lewd behavior as a reason for prohibiting nudity. In doing so, they have confused simple nudity with lewd behavior. Rangers presently have the authority and responsibility to stop lewd activity, and naturists encourage them to exercise that responsibility appropriately. However, that specific authority is separate and different from the legal authority the Parks Department has to establish areas for clothing-optional recreation.

MORE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

Additional information and links are available, along with this NAC Action Alert on the web site of the Naturist Action Committee.

PLEASE HELP NAC TO CONTINUE HELPING NATURISTS!

The Naturist Action Committee is the volunteer nonprofit political adjunct to The Naturist Society. NAC exists to advance and protect the rights and interests of naturists throughout North America. Fighting for the clothing-optional recreational use of public land is expensive. To do its job, NAC relies entirely on the voluntary generosity of supporters like you.

Cyber Monday Discount Sales Event at Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs, California


Everyone is looking for good value for their vacation dollar. Sales and discounts on vacations are even nicer. And nudists aren't any different. That's one of the reasons we have not raised our rates for 4 years and will not be raising them again in 2011 as we are known as the best value nudist resort in America. And we do not charge any hidden resort or day fees.

On a MSNBC TV show in November 2009, we were also named as the best value nudist resort on the west coast.

Even though we are the best value of ALL nudist resorts in the US and one of the best values of ALL resorts in Palm Springs, guests still want more discounts.

In the months of December and January, (excluding the December 24th to January 2nd holiday period), we will have our best deal of the year, stay 1 night, the 2nd is 50% OFF on Monday through Thursday nights.

December is also a special month for us. 16 years ago on December 19th, 1994 we opened and are now the most popular clothing optional resort in the western US.

December and January are a great times to stay with us. We have invested in poolside out door heaters, to keep you nice and warm and nude in the night time. So you can nude sunbathe all day long and sit under the heaters at night. We are the ONLY nudist resort in the whole US to have invested in them.

We also keep our state of the art salt water pool a nice and toasty 86F. And of course our salt water pool and jacuzzi are open 24 hours a day.

If you are a shopper and looking for great bargains, Desert Hills discount outlet mall is only 20 minutes away from The Terra Cotta Inn. It is the largest and best discount outlet mall in the western US.

Finally, we are proud to report in the December 2010 issue of Palm Springs Life Magazine, the Best of the Best issue we were selected as the BEST boutique hotels in the WHOLE Palm Springs. This is a great honor being named the Best of the Best as we are compared to ALL hotels not just nudist hotels.

We were named the best not because we are super fancy, snobby, and elite like some places. No we were named the best because we are so popular, our guests are so friendly and they have so much fun here.

I have always said that nudist hotels have to be able to compete head to head on amenities and services with textile hotels for nudism to grow. We have one of the highest occupancy rates of ALL hotels in Palm Springs, so this award proves that nudists want nice accommodations too.

We are still asked all the time by first timers, "we're not nudists, this is our first time. Will we be welcome?" No problem. Probably 95% of our repeat guests were first timers too.

Now it's time that you should try something new, something fun, something romantic, and different. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!

Give us a call at 800-786-6938 for more information or to make reservations.

Shades of Facebook - Almost every single photo on my blog has been deleted last night


Shades of Facebook. I woke up this morning and found almost every single photo has been deleted on this blog.

Now with this blog, I have never shown frontal nudity only implied nudity. As a few picture without people were left up, it is as if a google employee went through every post here with a hatchet and cut out the photos to censure this blog.

Very, very bizarre.

Of course it would be nice if someone from google would have e-mailed me about this situation.

Excellent article about women's rights to bare their breasts in public



In the late 1800's in teh US, the sight of a woman's bare ankle was scandalous. Then in the roaring '20's flapper girls showing off bare calves were considered "loose." By the 1940's women could finally wear skirts coming below the knees and 2 piece (not bikini) bathing suits were coming into style. In 1946, French engineer Louis Reard is given credit for "inventing" the modern bikini. And of course in Europe, topless bikinis are very popular on all beaches, especially Spanish beaches where topless sunbathing is legal.

Yet, if you look at the above photo, you will see it is of a mosaic from the 4th century AD of Italian women in bikinis.

And going back further Queen Nefertiti of Egypt and many fellow Egyptians enjoyed public nudity.

"Nudity in Early Egypt

A fascinating tale of early sun worship and nudity was unearthed in 1887 at Tell-el-Amarna, a small Egyptian village on the banks of the Nile some 200 miles south of Cairo. There, an Arab woman accidentally stumbled upon the baked-clay tablet archives of Pharaoh Akhen-Aton (1385-1353 B.C.). It was learned through the subsequent translation of these tablets that the brilliant young pharaoh and his exquisitely beautiful queen, Nefertiti, considered the sun, Aton, to be the true wellspring of life and thus justified the practice of nudism for spiritual and physical advancement." from http://www.primitivism.com/nudity.htm

It seems "modern" American society has forgotten how to enjoy life clothes free.

Today in the US, women can still be arrested for being topless at most beaches and doing activities men can do shirtless. But, don't forget, men could be arrested for being shirtless at beaches until the 1930's, because it was thought women would not be able to handle the sight of a man's bare nipple.

A college student from MA wrote a very good article about women needing to get the right to bare their breasts anywhere it is acceptable for a man to do so.

Here it is:

"If you’ve ever been out walking on a hot summer day, you know that sometimes clothes can make you unbearably sweaty and uncomfortable. If you’re a man, you can try to cope with this problem by taking your shirt off, and no one will complain. If you’re a woman and you do the same, you’re likely to get arrested.

In most parts of the U.S., it is illegal for women to go topless in public. Women may legally do so only in six states, and specific cities and beaches. If a woman goes topless in public anywhere else in America, it is considered indecent exposure. In Massachusetts, the maximum penalty for indecent exposure is up to six months in jail and a $200 fine...

The strongest argument for keeping women’s tops on is that women must be protected from men. According to this argument, men simply are not able to control themselves at the sight of a woman’s bare breasts and would sexually harass, assault, or even rape them. However, women are expected to cover their hair in certain cultures and religious groups. These groups believe that if a woman’s hair— a supposedly sexual part of her body – was to be seen, men would not be able to control their desires. Regardless of religious belief, though, women typically leave their hair uncovered in the U.S., since we don’t consider it to be a sexual entity. Even if a woman does have beautiful hair, men are easily able to control themselves. There is nothing inherently sexual about a woman’s hair, and similarly, there is nothing inherently sexual about a woman’s breasts. Both ideas, in fact, are mere societal constructs.

Other people will say that they aren’t comfortable with being forced to see women’s breasts in public. After all, not everybody has attractive breasts, and who wants to see ugly women go topless? Nonetheless, not everybody has a body that is widely considered attractive, and yet we are “forced” to see them every day – sometimes in shorts or a bathing suit. Finding someone, male or female, unattractive is not a viable reason for forcing them to cover up, or for arresting them if they refuse to do so...

Another pervasive argument against women’s toplessness is that children must be protected from the sight of breasts. However, breastfed children grow up seeing their mothers’ breasts, and it doesn’t seem to affect them adversely. Moreover, European children who go to public beaches see women’s breasts, and it doesn’t traumatize them...

Far from preventing sexual assaults, the law against women’s toplessness is part of a way of thinking that is harmful to both men and women. If we take steps to change the law, our society’s attitudes will adjust and such a change in attitude will protect women far more effectively than a t-shirt ever could.

For the full interesting article: Click Here

It's still so sad that Mary Clare, if she wanted to walk outside would have to wear at least a tube top instead of being able to be topless. Hopefully, this situation will change for future generations.

Staring at breasts give men a longer life


A reader sent me the link to this story and said I should let everyone know. Here's the story:

"Stare at boobs for longer life: Study

Frankfurt, Germany, December 6, 2009 - A rather bizarre study carried out by German researchers suggests that staring at women's breasts is good for men's health and increases their life expectancy.

According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women’s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.

She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."

Researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany did an in-depth analysis of 200 healthy males over a period of five years. Half the volunteers were instructed to ogle at the breasts of women daily, while the rest were told to refrain from doing so.

At the close of the study, the researchers noted that the men who stared at the breasts of females on a regular basis exhibited lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and lesser episodes of coronary artery ... disease.

...Weatherby explained the concept stating, "Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation. There's no question: Gazing at breasts makes men healthy.

"Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of stroke and heart attack in half. We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life four to five years."

..The German research is believed to be published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Click here to see the link

When I first got this link, I thought, the doctors name sure sounded American or British, not German. I then went to The new England Journal of Medicine, typed in the doctors name and found nothing. I then went to snopes.com and found it was a fake story.

I still thought it was pretty funny and wanted to share it. If it was true, nudism would boom!

Now the even funnier thing is the site themedguru.com is supposedly a medical advice portal. This article is still up. Makes you really wonder what type of job editing do they do. I discovered it was a fake in less than 5 minutes. I hope they do a better job researching other articles.

Again reinforces, take everything you read with a grain of salt. It's OK to take the extra sodium, you don't have to worry about it elevating your blood pressure. Just stare at some boobs like in this blog for 10 minutes and your blood pressure will be fine.

Time to go nude sunbathing - Natural Vit D produced by sunshine is the best for the human body


Sadly, many doctors and the press have vilified suntanning. One of the results of this bad policy is it's estimated that 70% of Americans have a Vitamin D deficiency.

The drug industry and many doctors of course say the way to fix this Vit D deficiency is with a pill or fortification of food. Of course the problem is humans adapted over time to getting Vitamin D the sun not pills.

Now slowly more and more doctors are recommending getting out into the sun as it's good for you. Something nude sunbathers have naturally always known.

Here's an article about Vit D and the sun:

"Basically there are two types of oral vitamin D supplements. The natural ones are D3, and they contain the same vitamin D your body makes when exposed to sunshine. The synthetic ones are vitamin D2, which are sometimes called ergocalciferol.

Once either form of the vitamin is in your body, it needs to be converted to a more active form. Vitamin D3 is converted 500 percent faster than vitamin D2...

However, nearly all the prescription-based supplements contain synthetic vitamin D2, which was first produced in the 1920s through ultraviolet exposure of foods. The process was patented and licensed to drug companies for use in prescription vitamins. In case you didn't know, the vitamin D that is added to milk is NOT D3 but the highly inferior vitamin D2.

The study linked above concluded that "vitamin D2 should no longer be regarded as a nutrient appropriate for supplementation or fortification of foods."

That being said, optimizing your sun exposure and levels of vitamin D3 may, indeed, be one of the most important physical steps you can take in support of your long-term health. Conventional medicine is finally beginning to get on board the vitamin-D3 bandwagon, using the natural power of sunshine to treat type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis during a woman's pregnancy and even tuberculosis.

It is important to understand that the ideal and STRONGLY preferred method of increasing your vitamin D3 level is through appropriate sun exposure...

But when you get your vitamin D from appropriate sun exposure your body can indeed self-regulate and greatly reduce vitamin D production if you don't need it, which makes it very difficult to overdose on vitamin D from sun exposure...

Nude Jude, The Terra Cotta inn pound Puppy gets mentioned in her first Tripadvisor review



Everyone loves Jude our new puppy. She's a Black Lab/Shepherd mix. Her personality though is a Labrador. She just loves people. To her, everything is a toy or game. She won the doggy lottery of life living and "working" at Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs, California. Everyone always comments on how happy she is.

Now http://tripadvisor.com reviews are very important for nudist resorts and potential guests. Guests, usually give non biased reviews which help future guests decide where to go. For instance, if you read trip advisor reviews for nudist resorts in Palm Springs, you would quickly learn that when we say we are the ONLY nudist resort that is popular and busy 7 days a week in Palm Springs, and the ONLY one that caters to couples on vacation, it's an accurate statement. That's why we are almost always the first choice for couples booking longer than just a Saturday night in Palm Springs.

At the same time, if you want a nudist resort that no one goes to midweek so that you don't have to see or talk with other people, trip advisor reports tell you don't go to The Terra Cotta Inn go elsewhere because we are so popular and have such a high repeat guest rate.

Jude our 10 month old pound puppy is so happy, she was just mentioned in her first tripadvisor review. Here's the review:

"My wife and I just returned from our first stay at Terra Cotta. It was
fantastic! We have traveled to quite a few nudist resorts in FL and the
Caribbean...

We heard nothing but great things about Tom and Mary Clare and they did not disappoint for a moment. The guests were very friendly when you wished to be social and also respectful of your quite time too. The grounds are well kept. The
pool is heated to the low 80's [Tom's note: actually 86F]. The jacuzzi is nice and warm too! A great breakfast each morning which I enjoyed with the complimentary
newspaper each morning poolside. Then pure R&R! At Terra Cotta there
are no organized activities. Relax, read and just take some sun...

Late afternoon brought a nice happy hour with complimentary wine and appetizers.
Terra Cotta does not have a restaurant or a bar. We had a room with a kitchen and they have a great built in gas BBQ but you could order from a local restaurant too.
It is BYOB which is refreshing after paying $10 a glass at so many of
the other resorts. And the best thing is that you are literally minutes
from downtown Palm Springs and the tremendous restaurants it offers! [Tom's note: We use a local restaurant to cater lunches so you don't have to go out. And for dinner 10 different restaurants deliver here. Once you check in, you do not have to leave unless you want to.]

The best surprise for us was Jude, the resort's new puppy! She is so much
fun and really loves to have a romp with her toys a few times a day. She
is pretty respectful of non-dog people too, especially since us dog
people wore her out playing!...

I would highly recommend a stay at Terra Cotta and suggest you book well
in advance as they have a high occupancy rate every week of the year"

This is the October 27th, 2010 review.

Jude, says woof, woof woof which means thank you for mentioning her.

Jude is one of the many reasons why we are one of the most popular of ALL resorts in sunny Palm Springs.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!

Should Nipple piercings be banned at nudist resorts? - Give us your opinion


A woman named Felicity has started a nudist blog called, Young Naturists America. She just wrote a post about nipple piercings that I thought was pretty interesting.

Her blog post is titled: "Nipple Piercings and Dinosaurs."

She talks about Rock Lodge, NJ nudist club and how they have a policy that bans nipple jewelry.

From the Rock Lodge website: "Body Jewelry. At present, genital and nipple jewelry are not allowed. Prior to arrival at Rock Lodge, please ensure that any genital jewelry is removed and that any nipple jewelry is either removed or covered."

Felicity writes: "Those who supported the rule argued that nipple piercings don't belong in a family-oriented nudist club; that it draws attention to areas nudists aren't trying to draw attention to, i.e. the breasts; that nipple piercings are sexual and associated with the swinger atmosphere (ridiculous). On the other hand, proponents of change argued that nudism is about open acceptance of people as they are and allowing them to express themselves."

She further writes: "nipple piercings are becoming a lot more common these days among young people, and I have a few friends who have them who might say, "Rock Lodge is nice, BUT what's with this stupid rule?" I think the club would do better to cut out a rule that would exclude or discourage younger people from joining, those who'd keep the place alive."

For her full interesting blog post Click here

We have guests from their 20's to 70's that stay with us. Although most people do not have pierced nipples, some do. We have had 20 year old guests and 70 year old guests with nipple piercings. We have never had a guest complain about the nipple jewelry.

Piercings have to do with fashion not morals. In the 1800's, it was fashionable for women to have pierced ears. Then in the Victorian era, it was considered risque and only poor or "loose" women had pierced ears as clip ons became the rage. As late as the 1950's, women were considered "slutty" if they had pierced ears. Then Hollywood changed it in the 1960's as female movie stars got pierced ears and no one gives it any thought after that.

I remember in the 1980's almost no nudist resorts allowed nipple piercings. then as pierced nipples started to slowly catch on, more and more nudist resorts like ours allowed them.

The same was true about shaving genitals. In the early 80's no one shaved, now most Americans, nudist and non nudists alike shave or trim their genital area.

Now of course all businesses have the right to make their own policies on the issue concerning nipple jewelry. But is banning it a smart business move?

Personally I see no big deal with nipple jewelry.

What's your opinion?

Right a comment here and let everyone know.
