If you’re of the adventurous type, Valentine’s Day is a great chance to try something a little daring with your partner / lover / spouse. While there’s always a place to go skinny-dipping, I thought I’d look at some of the weirder things you can do around the world while in your birthday suit. Some fellow travel bloggers had some ideas as well…

Korean jimjilbang – steam and hot water, anyone?

These are not for the faint of heart. On one level, everyone around you seems to know what to do, how to do it… and of course, they’re totally comfortable being nude around strangers. Get past the first time, however, and you’ll probably find yourself looking forward to your next time

Also spelled jjimjilbang, these are basically day spas with public baths and saunas. Pay an admission fee to get in, store your stuff in a locker, bring (or buy) some toiletries, then take a shower before jumping in a bath. This is a cardinal rule, by the way – the baths are there for enjoyment, not getting clean.

Read up on them before going.

Nude beach – don’t forget the sunscreen!

At the Naturist village (Le Cap D’Agde Village Naturiste) in Agde, France, it’s more ‘clothing optional’ and less ‘nudity required’. At first blush this ‘village’ is anything but – it feels more like a built-up resort area with a hotel. Between the sexy disco and lingerie stores are plenty of condos.

Time to let the inhibitions fly free! As you’d expect most places have specific rules in place, while a few unwritten rules are universal no matter where you go. Find your way in, and consider getting undressed by the entrance – there’s a set of lockers right by the entrance as seen above. Clothing store and lingerie, leather handcuffs and so on. No maps inside the complex, as it’s much more geared towards resort stayers – at 300-800 € a week, depending on the season. Day passes get 95% of the fun for 1% of the price.

Beaten by herbs and oiled up – for your health!

Traveling the world totally gives you a complete sense of freedom and hopefully takes you out of your comfort zone. Visiting a different country, you are braver than you might be at home. This is true for me.

I am usually not comfortable naked in front of strangers, but when I recently went to a local market in Quito, Ecuador, a unique opportunity presented itself by way of meeting a third generation healer named Rosa Mercedes. She, along with her ancestors, heal with herbs, cleanse negativity and bad vibes, and will even “read” the herbs used throughout the process.

As I stood in front of her, practically nude (only underwear), she started by hitting me hard from head to toe with the herbs (warning: you get a little red at the beginning). Next she oiled my body and showered me with rose petals. Ironically, she focused on my legs and even knew that I had some type of a condition there. She also mentioned insights regarding my personality, life and future. Everything was so accurate, I was astonished. It’s freaky, but not scary. Finally, she customizes a potion for you with final instructions. The entire experience filled me with a peace that I still feel, months later. Definitely a superb, once in a lifetime experience…and worth getting naked for!

Skinny-dipping in a private Hawaiian lagoon

We’d only been together as a couple 3 months when I whisked Mary away for our first big adventure– an all-expenses-paid trip exploring the island of Hawai’i. It was an incredible week– snorkeling with sea turtles, watching the sunset from above the clouds on the summit of Mauna Kea and watching lava boiling the water as it entered the ocean. But one of the most memorable highlights was the days we spent literally doing nothing in our own little slice of paradise, called “Shangri-La.” Located in the Puna district just south of Hilo, this privately-owned rental property was like something out of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. There were four Bali-style cottages, an outdoor shower and hot tub. But our favorite feature was the ocean-fed private lagoon, which was filled with tropical fish, naturally heated by volcanic activity, and had a hut in the center featuring a King Sized bed and bamboo blinds. For two days we wore as little clothing as possible, savoring our time relaxing in tropical bliss and jumping in the lagoon when we got hot from tanning in the over-water hammock. I’m fairly certain the construction guys working on the neighbor’s house got an eyeful over the privacy fence, but we were (and still are, 7 years later) too in love to care!
