Into many its books it stepped engaged for the nudist sunbathing FKK , also into that rather prüden fifties. To the then anrüchigen term „naked culture “wrote 1950 already to Rittlinger and. A.:

But this beautiful expression on the very simple to apply very natural and at the suitable place rather frequently practiced Nacktbaderei or also to the honest nudist sunbathing federations (many of their members are not from approximately Kanuten!) with their [...] free and sporty-clean atmosphere - is impolite and witnesses at best from rough ignorance. Only - the Obszönität of the Spiessers is not at all more „impolitely “separates maliciously! Also „nudist sunbathing “(FKK) is not a lucky word thing. But it maintained ground from the dissociation to all speculative machinations and in-patriated. From the tidy sport dress over Petrarca to here the jump is not even so large: Our Gestade of the sun requests also to the last physical liberty. Which means the gift of the nakedness in air and sun straight for the woman, whom three quarters of its body also with the sport of the vitally necessary demand „leave to air to the skin “extracts, this will know to appreciate even best. Unterm Dickicht of close and conventional convention have most humans fortunately enough cleanliness of the feeling, in order to have at fresh naturalness their joy. In view of venerable, verträumter Moselstädtchen, or under reconnaissanceend amused or bad views conventional Landbevölkerung forbids themselves each unintentional challenge strictly and already for reasons [good…] Taste. Who can do without however in lonely area, among equivalent comrades or at the sea not the bathing suit as last civilization remainder, finally is „a barbarian “!

The Hajo Ortil, secondary school teacher one gotten used to with Rittlinger of Bremen High School, reported Hansi river and Seepiraten likewise in these publications on the Kanusportaktivitäten of the young and group of girl sports created by it „“.

Because the so-called „dirt and trash law “without individual case examination and without indexing (lt.§ 6 exp. 2 valid of 9. June 1953 to 23. ) „Writings with picture for naked culture “as obviously heavy youth-endangering classified, could not these publications young people recruit November 1973 under 18 years long time be made not accessible.

Heidersberger, Ludwig Windstosser, H. Hajek Halke and other one. The text described clearly and without trips into the personal anecdote he begins and treats
all problems of the act photography in its first chapter “over naked humans” with the famous “Venus of Wilmersdorf” afterwards the estimate of the “strong Realistik” of the photography in their relation to the painting. The author pursues the history of the act photography of the idealization in 19. Century over the impulses of the “new Sachlichkeit” up to stone RTS term of the “subjective photography”. On the search for suitable models it guesses/advises the amateur to look for it on the areas of the nudist sunbathing if the own friend or woman does not agree. Rittlinger describes handling models, says also, how male should be constituted, and it in detail describes the act in the landscape
