Nakations become more popular

'Nakations' are becoming increasingly popular.

Naked vacations - or holidays where clothes are optional - have become very successful as of late, where people want to go and relax.

Hedonism II in Negril, Jamaica, has been a popular venue since 1976. You can stay on the 'nude' or 'prude' side, with the first requiring complete nudity all the time and the other, you can wear as many or as little clothes as you'd like.

Managing director Kevin Levee said: "Hedonism II has always been a place where people can let their hair down and have fun in a safe, sensual, and protected environment."

There are also specific nudity cruises, run by the likes of Carnival and Holland America.

Erich Schuttauf, interim executive director for the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR), said: "According to specialty travel agencies, cruise ship and sailing charters are selling out months in advance. Most sail at full capacity, with 30 percent first-time nudist cruisers. Demand for nude cruises increased from one clothing-optional, 500-passenger cruise liner in 1992 to 65 full-ship cruises, and over 30,000 nude cruise vacationers today."
