    Gay Nudist Guide Books

    Naked Places, 2nd Edition
    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. (Check out the Naked Places web page for some fascinating gay nudist trivia and ordering instructions.)
    Ferrari Travel Planner: World-Wide Gay and Lesbian Travel Guide
    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.

    Gay Nudist Publications

    GYMNOS Online
    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
    changed 8/2000 (coming back announcement, new URL and e-mail)
    (August 2000) 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.

    Other Nudist Publications

    Naturally Magazine
    updated listing 3/2004
    PO Box 317
    Newfoundland, NJ 07435

    Web Page: http://www.internaturally.com/
    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!"
    They've asked to include this note: " Attention Traveling Naturist Men: Travel Naturally is looking for gay naturists to submit articles and photos of their naturist vacations. Since our magazine is very visual, articles with accompanying photos have the best chance of being published. Articles published will receive a contributor's fee. Our Publishing Guidelines can be found on our website. We look forward to hearing from you!
