The current law in Germany divides between Exhibitionism (§183 Abs. 1): Only applicable to men (!), there was in fact a constituitional complaint which was rejected by the highest court in Germany. The targeted person needs to feel bothered and the exhibitionist must display a sexual pose (erection, sudden exposure, display before minors). Punishable with ...

In short, no. Even the Yrjönkatu pool is a bit of a historical quirk that has probably survived largely thanks to general conservatism (it's Finland's oldest and operated very much the way it did in 1928) and patronage from Helsinki's gay district Eerikinkatu (conveniently located right next door) — no, it's not a gay club or anything, but even ...

In Kansas, it is legal to be naked in full view of everyone, walking down the street, "unless [one] is exposing themselves or a sexual organ to gratify or arouse someone other than themself", according to this news story, so driving naked in Kansas would also be legal, if those conditions are met.

One would definitely have to look at the statutes state by state. In the state of Florida for example you could be cited under the public indecency statute. In NY though going topless is legal for women, so partial nudity would be fine in that state. There were similar discussions on other sites like Yahoo answers, or Answers.com. But generally Kansas ...

Almost without fail, swimming costumes are required. As are towels, so as not to drip everywhere. There are however, sometimes private pools you can reserve (indoors) - for example, at Hanmer Springs, and I suspect a lot of the time, swimming costumes may not be used there, although I think officially they'd be required. However, there are a few ...

Well to be honest this depends. There are special "FKK" areas at German beaches and parks. In general as a male you can go topless nearly everywhere. As a female you can go topless in parks or at beaches but if somebody feels disturbed he can report you and you may get banned from a certain area. I am talking about places for sunbathing. If you go naked ...

Japanese-themed and Japanese-operated Maruia Springs on the spine of the South Island has a Japanese-style public bathhouse where swimwear is optional: Pretty much everywhere else, including the outdoor area at Maruia itself, swimwear is required.

Yes there is nudity. Burning Man US is all about lots of booze, dope & free love. Here are some photos of Burning Seed http://www.offmyfacebook.com.au/burning-seed-australia.html

It's a matter of state-level and local regulations. For Bavaria, the Badeverordnung says: Who bathes publically must wear bathing clothes. This includes sunbathing. "public" means publically accessible or visible without special effort. (i.e. including your own backyard if visible from the street) Exceptions are: Children up to 6 years old places where ...

One venue to consider is Burning Man, an annual festival in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, USA. It is pretty remote, so it might qualify as "lost in the land", but it certainly fulfills most of your criteria. Nudity is permitted and common at Burning Man (though far from obligatory). Crossdressing is also allowed, as is wearing bizarre costumes.

Lady Bay is a part of the Sydney Harbour National Park. In general, Sydney Harbour National Park is only open sunrise to sunset. During special events like New Years Eve they do open parts of the park outside of these times, but this only applies to specific areas, and normally requires tickets purchased in advance. The list of such sites for NYE 2013 is ...

There's a difference between pre-islamic and pre-revolutionary. As a rule of thumb, pre-islamic art is uncensored, pre-revolutionary (but islamic) is censored, often heavily. (I noticed part of your question I didn't see before, perhaps because you updated it.) During the early years of the revolution, there was a lot of religious zeal that saw some ...

There are 3 possible places in the Rotorua area for nude bathing. Wai-O-Tapu stream at the small bridge near the ticket office to the Wai-O-Tapu thermal park. This however has become more popular in recent times and its a bit hit and miss with regards to nudity. Same deal at Kerosene Creek a few kilometers from Wai-O-Tapu - if there are families or lots of ...

As Doc said in his answer, places within a very short walk were open for New Year's Eve - even beaches. There was a partial view including skyline but not including the Harbour Bridge or Opera house. As Doc also said Lady Bay is within an area which is closed overnight every night of the year anyway. The sign at the walkway said that all of South Head is ...

In general, if you are driving naked and no one can see you, then there is no violation of law. Nudity in itself is not a crime. Example: It is 3 AM and you are on an interstate or any other road for that matter, and there are no other vehicles on the road or if no one can see you are nude, then there is no violation.

Depends on what you call an alternative... There are quite a few naturist camp grounds and resorts with (some) facilities, usually a small grocery store/supermarket, a swimming pool and/or sauna, and a restaurant/snackbar. But I'm not aware of anything on the same scale. In the Netherlands there's Flevonatuur near Zeewolde for example that has some ...

Maruia Hot Springs are very relaxed about dress code. True most folks go clothed into the water but no one bothers if you are bold enough to go naked - it is a natural place and surely the forest is offended if you don’t. (Visit summer 2020)

Since you are asking this on Travel SE I assume you also would want to visit such an island. I think I have found exactly what you are looking for, with the only downside, that it is not a Pacific island but in Europe: Île du Levant According to Wikipedia some 90% of the island is military and thus off-limits but the rest can easily be visited. Being nude ...

All hunter/gather tribes that is uncontacted is usually naked at first. It's not until shortly after they done the loincloths. On the island of Yap (Micronesia) you may find some people in regular clothing but the clothing of choice is loincloths. Wrap around types that provide more coverage then the amazon style. Besides exposing a lot of thigh is ...

I think the issue here is that anything that is easy to visit is less likely to have indigenous tribes or populations of any size that would not have started to wear clothes. Exceptions are the spring break populations in the USA etc. So in order to answer your question, I would suggest you to take a look at a list that has all the most likely candidates, ...

You should just go where other people are already sunbathing naked, and you are good. Personally I have not seen people sunbathing naked in inner-city parks so I would advice against it; but it is common in or near public pools (one pool in the town I used to live in had an all-nude day once a week), lakes, some campsites or the beaches sea; but they ...

In Kansas there is no law against nudity. However, local ordinances can prohibit it. In my city "being in Public" is defined as "Generally visible by the public". That is interpreted as loosely walking or driving down the street or sidewalk and you look over and see someone nude that would be considered in public. Looking in people's windows is not allowed ...
