The first article features in UK naturist magazine H&E Naturist in the latest February 2021 edition. The article written by travel editor Paul Rouse and based on an interview with a local naturist discusses the difficulty of naturism gaining acceptance on the island of Malta. Many factors are discussed such as the small size of the island, the high population density, the lack of privacy, and the hostile as well as the indifferent attitude of most of the natives. But another problem is the unwillingness of many naturists to form a small community that puts pressure on the authorities to recognise the cause for naturism.
The second article features in the International Naturist Federation newsletter Focus, of the February 2021 edition. It is actually a reproduction of an opinion piece written by a Maltese naturist and which was selected for publication in the H&E Naturist November 2020 edition.
The article attempts to explore why the majority of humanity feels uncomfortable with the naked body and links the acceptance and practice of nudism to the concept of free will.
The INF which has been a constant support for Maltese naturism even published images of Qarraba Bay ( the unofficial nudist beach) alongside the article. The newsletter also contains an interesting detailed history of naturism.
