Everyone has had some variation of the same nightmare at some point in their lives. You know the one I mean: it starts with you walking down the street, or doing a presentation at work, or even back at school, blissfully untroubled by the state of your clothing. And, for most of us, the thought of parading down a poolside in the buff is enough to bring on a stress rash. So when I, a nude novice, was asked to attend weekly two-hour naturist swimming session at Energybase Gym in Bloomsbury, London all in the name of journalism, of course , I found myself flooded with dread. Colin explained that he and other volunteers have been running the session for years, offering a place in London where naturists can enjoy being completely free in a pool with as little fuss as possible. The vibe, he assured me, would be relaxed, welcoming and about community. Despite all of my misgivings, it was. In reality the session is, yes, about enjoying the feeling of swimming naked which totally beats a stretchy swimming cossie creeping up your bum but it is also a meet-up for like-minded naturists. And many of them are men. In fact, on this occasion all of them were men — and a lot of them were stood around the pool chatting, rather than bobbing around under the water.

NUDISTS have been hosted in seven swimming pools - including one with a slide - as the community grows in numbers across Ireland, we can reveal. The latest new venue to rent out their facilities was Coral Leisure in Co Monaghan which allowed naturists to use its pool, sauna, steam room and even its water chute. Manager Ciaran Murtagh said they had no complaints - and revealed he is happy to provide the fully-clothed lifeguard duties himself. They are a private user group. They pay a rental fee to come in outside of normal opening hours. We have had no issues. I was truly impressed by the slide still open for us , the warm big pool, the small warmer pool, and the cozy spa area with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Thank you to our great lifeguards too! A real luxury to have all that to ourselves! See you there the last Sunday in April again!!
