This newly revised guide book is probably the best resource for
gay naturists ever! It covers a lot of ground, listing accommodations,
groups, beaches, and nude-friendly saunas and health clubs. This guide
is as up to date as possible, and is a great bargain at US$18.95.
Incredibly useful, and a good read, too, with lots of photos. 340 pages.

Ferrari Travel Planner: World-Wide Gay and Lesbian
In Naked Magazine's Volume 2 Number 3 issue, there is an ad for the
Ferrari Travel Planner, which instructs you to look for a naked bum symbol
in the book and "Let's Get Naked!"
They continue: "Only the Ferrari gay guides feature this special
symbol for those of us who like to play naked. The worldwide Ferrari Travel
Planner includes accommodations, bars, saunas, health clubs, bookstores,
and erotica. Plus a comprehensive gay tour and events section and featured
articles on gay lifestyle worldwide. Ask for the Naked Special."
According to Naked Places, Ferrari doesn't list many nude beaches,
but it does make note of accommodations that accept nudity.

GYMNOS is a contact club and publication for men who like to be naked.
It's purpose is to provide men who have an interest in social nudity a
means to contact other men who are similarly inclined. Launched on
14 Feb 1999, this new site will grow to feature a wide variety of
features, depending on the wishes of the subscribers. Requires an
"AdultCheck" ID, though. The print version will come out four times a
year, to reach an even wider audience.

Naked Magazine was a great little magazine for gay nudists and
exhibitionists. It slowly became slick and a little less exciting,
and then they stopped publishing and disappeared for a couple
of years. Now they appear to be back. They tell me their first
new issue will be out around Labour Day (beginning of September),
and they assure me that they will be honouring everyone's previous
subscriptions. Keep your fingers crossed, and if you see a copy
on a shelf somewhere, grab it.
(October 2, 2000)
I still haven't heard of an issue being released, and someone at the
AOL address told me their first issue is due at the end of October.
This is bad news. I also heard from a former employee who warns
again subscribing. I suggest approaching the magazine with caution.
Buy it if you see it, but don't subscribe until they have proven
that they can do business.
They tell me: "Its focus is worldwide upscale naturist travel
for individuals and families." Their home page says: "Naturally
is the elegant quarterly magazine that takes you to nudist resorts, worldwide,
with color photos, informative articles and delightful anecdotes."
Update March 2004: "When I started working at Internaturally I
noticed that there were few gay naturist products and hardly any gay
naturist resort coverage in our magazine called Travel Naturally...
Our intention is to now include articles, reviews and products, in
Travel Naturally, that will be of interest to our fellow naturist
men. We want the visitors of Naked Planet to know this too!"
