Did You Know?


All of the historical accounts of nudism presented by the nudists in the film are legitimate. See more »


While Julie is looking through magazines for something to do a thesis on, a piece of equipment starts moving into and out of view. It first happens after "That's what it's all about, babe" is said. It continues when Steve began encouraging Julie's nudism idea, such as when he tried to show her his magazine but she shoved it away. See more »

Rare Full Length Nudist Movie
30 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Recorded in actual nudist resorts, this story covers a lot of territory. As mentioned previously, it is an older movie made in 1984. Styles are different, appliances are different, the places have changed. Where is Julie (Gail Ward) today? That is a good question that would allow a follow up to this story and to the actress. I just saw this movie on uTube. I knew that it had been out a very long time but my favorite nudist film has always been "The Nudist Story" but that is a different review. This Julie is also a British girl and she gets to travel to different resorts where she interviews the guests for a school project. Her boyfriend is something of a sideshow character and is comically reluctant to participate in nudism. He could have been left out as he brings very little if anything to this story, except the male penis. There is no romance shown here. He does place his arm across her back as they walk together once. Therefore, Julie is what we are mostly interested in. She actually looks better with her clothes off and looks unfashionable with her clothes on. Her naked body is interesting but not super. I did not like how it took Julie so little time to adjust herself to public nudism and how uninterested she seemed to be in the various nude males throughout the film. Aftwer all, she was never shown nude in her flat, the first place to try being clothes free. In other words, so little passion was present in this movie. There could have been more enthusiasm and more real emotions. Instead, it is too much of a stand back documentary to my taste. Some of the nudist interviews were interesting.
