Posted January 12, While hundreds of people strip off at Australia's oldest nudist beach this weekend for the annual Maslin Beach Nude Games, a nude aficionado has said Australia's naked history comes from much more than fleshy frivolity. Instead, keen nudist historian and editor of Australia's nudist magazine "TAN" Stuart Whelan said Australia's fondness for nude beaches stemmed from war and German settlement. Australian troops once used nudism to mollify "putrid, humid" conditions in the Pacific, he said.

There is also a strong community of naturists to join, whose openness and friendliness come from the fact they have nothing to hide — not even tan lines. Many naturists say the reason for nude beach-going is simple — they just feel more like themselves without clothes getting in the way.
