When the heat is on, the clothes come off — but how far will you go? Here are some London places where nudity is mandatory and you can let it all hang out among like-minded bare-body enthusiasts
University of London Union, every Sunday
Not too sure which bikini you prefer? Or maybe those trunks don’t look as good on you as they did on Channing Tatum. Why bother? Naturist London's Sunday Swim is a regular event with no booking or membership required, just strip off and dive in. Here naturists, or those who just fancy a skinny dipping session without having to trek to a nudist beach, can get naked and get swimming. The perfect pre-Sunday roast dip. Those who want a more leisurely bask in the sun can head to the only official naked sunbathing area in London, the banks of the men’s swimming pond on Hampstead Heath. Unfortunately it’s men-only but women can sunbathe topless at the ladies’ pond. A python was recently found in the water so naked swimming is not recommended.

Despite often unreliable weather, naturism is thriving in the UK and there are plenty of easy opportunities for naturism.
There are plenty of beaches around our beautiful coastline for naturists, from wide stretches of fine sand close to popular tourist spots to more secluded locations far from the crowds. On a hot day, there is nothing better than getting an all-over tan, skinny-dipping and enjoying the company of like-minded people on a lovely beach.
Clubs and swims
Well over 100 naturist clubs exist across the UK providing an easy and tranquil escape from the rigours of daily life for thousands of naturists. Each club is different, but they usually have well tended grounds centred around a club house, with facilities including a swimming pool, sports facilities, sauna, children’s play areas, campsites and social event calendars. Swims usually take place in leisure complexes hired for a naturist session.

Hello! Whether you’re just curious as to what this nude stuff is all about, or maybe you’ve tried it and have some questions, we’re here to help!
If you’re like some of us your introduction to this strange idea of ‘nudism’ came from grainy black and white photos of bare people playing volleyball. Or perhaps from the internet with pics of beautiful models basking ‘naturally’ on a page full of ads for porno sites. Let’s explore a bit and see what we find.
The first thing to keep in mind is that, other than being naked, nudists are people just like everyone else with the same feelings and interests, differences and personalities. We do tend to be a bit more open-minded, probably because we know what it’s like to be judged unfairly based on stereotypes. That said, we also tend to be rather prudish in some ways. You will find little ‘improper’ behavior in a socially nude situation. As they say: Be nude, not rude.
Enough of all that, time to move on.
Shall we do this in a Q&A format? Ok, lets. Whee! What fun!
Q: What’s the difference between a nudist and a naturist?
A: Not much, though some would argue. A naturist is generally more into nudity in an outdoorsy setting while a nudist is happy to be nude just about anywhere. That’s simplified but good enough for now. The term ‘clothes free’ is gaining in popularity recently since some people don’t care to be labeled ‘nudist’, along with the perceived negative ideas related to the word.
Q: What does ‘Textile” mean?
A: ‘Textile’ is a term referring to the community of those who cover their bodies with clothing most of the time, as opposed to ‘nudists/naturists’ who prefer not to. It is convenient, descriptive, and non-derogatory.
Q: What’s the difference between ‘nudist’ and ‘clothing optional’?
A: Used in descriptions of campgrounds or resorts, ‘nudist’ usually means that full nudity is expected most of the time. ‘Clothing optional’ indicates that nudity is allowed but not required, and may be restricted as to times and places. When booking into a resort be very sure about what you’re getting. It would be a shame to travel a great distance only to find out that you can be nude only at the pool, after 11:00 PM.

found this webpage here a small part please see the rest on the link below
By being a nudist and being open about it, you definitely make a statement: a body is not something to be ashamed of and it can be openly shown to everyone. As nudist we believe nudity is good. We feel good naked and we would love everybody to understand this. However, there are many undisclosed nudists. Some people, who spend their holidays naked in a nudist resort, never tell others about their nude holidays, fearing the potential rejection. It’s sad because nudism is a wonderful and respectful activity that should not label people. Now, when you are an open nudist, are you making a statement by being naked and by looking for opportunities to be naked? Here are two dimensions we can look at with being naked: the state of nudity and the naked body
The state of nudity has two sides: making a statement, not making a statement. On making a statement, nudism is a great family and social activity, nothing’s wrong with naked bodies, therefore being naked is a statement. It equates, come and join us! On not making a statement, nudism is a well-being state, you have to feel it, it cannot be rationally explained, so being naked is just a personal experience, nothing more than this. It equates, join if you feel nudity is for you.

Naturism – What’s it all about?
This post is aimed at experienced and newbie naturists alike.
(Since posting this, couple of people have disagreed my personal take on the word nudists, I would just like to acknowledge that I am aware that in other parts of the world Nudist is used interchangeably with Naturism, I made this clear in my Post below. I did not intend to express that ALL Nudists are swingers/sex perverts or similar, only that those I see doing these things, I don’t call them naturists, I call them nudists because they are naked and they don’t fit into my understanding of Naturism.. that is all )
(For another girl’s explanation on being a Nudist you could check out this blog http://samanthagilmour.wordpress.com/category/nudist/)
I apologise for any grammatical errors, I just don’t have the time to proof read, otherwise I would not be able to post it for another few days!
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about ‘Naturism – What it means’ and invited you to comment on what Naturism means to you and you were very generous in your response. Some of you asked your comments to be kept private, which I have done and about 50 of you were happy for me to publish your comments. If you have not seen this post and comments, it is here;
I know most of us are very busy so I would very much like you to know that I appreciate the time and effort you made to draft your comments. Thank You.
I have read the responses and using my experience and what you have said on the above post, I shall try to express what I think Naturism is all about at present.
I am very aware that most people do not read long posts so I am going to try and keep it short & to the point. If you wish to discuss anything further, please comment on this post and I shall respond.
I will acknowledge that I am not a scholar of naturism, nor do I hold a Doctorate in human behaviour. However, over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have interactions with some very senior and knowledgeable naturists and some of their knowledge and understanding has rubbed off on me, as you would expect and I thank them for educating me.
I am not going to try and provide any definitive answers on naturism, because as you will see, it obviously means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. However I will try to express what I think people see or use Naturism as and touch on what needs to be improved.
A lot of what I’m going to write here is about you, the Naturist, some of you may be offended by what I say, I do not apologise for that, if you find yourself being upset then feel free to express it in your comments because it is only through discussion that we can learn about the rights and the wrongs in order to progress Naturism in a way that we would like to see it.
What is Naturism
Naturism to me is a life style which involves some of the philosophies/Understanding noted below, you may or may not agree;
1.Naked human body is the natural state and needs to be enjoyed in much the same way as we see and admire Animals’ bodies, furs, skins and shapes.
2.Clothing/covering was invented by our predecessors in the early years of evolution primarily to survive in climates that our bodies are not naturally designed to survive in. The Polar Bear would not survive in the Sahara desert, but the nomads could kill the Polar Bear & Survive on the Arctic Ocean.
3.Clothing was also developed for another reason – To prevent unwanted sexual attention. For example, most living things, Humans, Animals, Plants tend to use parts of their bodies to attract partners or method of re-production. So as the Humans evolved, some bright spark must have hit on the idea that if they cover up the sexual organs, perhaps they can avoid unwanted sexual attraction. This was probably the worst invention ever because instead of covering up the sexual organs to avoid unwanted attraction, our ancestors became more & more inventive and started to ‘decorate’ the covering to make it look nice, which in turn made the sexual organs even more obvious and attractive to the eye and so began the fashion industry!
4.So what is more attractive, naked human body or one that is covered up to make it look sexy? Well I guess both because some naked bodies are attractive (the original problem remember!) They are the right shape or size for the attracted (regional variations accepted!) and you can take any body & dress it up to look sexy. However the important thing to note is that no matter how sexy the body is, after you’ve seen it a few times, it becomes ‘Normal’ and the sexiness is reduced to mild attraction or no attraction at all. HOWEVER, if the sexy (or made up sexy) bodies are re-decorated with different colours, shapes, materials, places, the attractiveness is reinvigorated and the sexiness is back. Therefore you will agree that as there are probably no more than 10% of the population with naturally attractive bodies, rest of the world uses clothing to look more attractive/sexy.
5. Based on the above, you may begin to understand that when naturists see each other in the nude, it is not long before the nakedness becomes natural & sexiness can only be achieved by dressing up! This is very apparent when you visit some well-known naturist resorts. Don’t misunderstand me, I am not saying that naturists somehow become sexless angels. There is a degree of enjoyment derived from being nude as a group, this enjoyment will no doubt be pleasurable but it doesn’t have to be overtly expressive. I suppose you could say that some naturists may get a kick out of being nude amongst others and NOT being sexual. It’s a bit like looking at a bed of flowers and relaxing rather than plucking them & spoiling it all just for short term pleasure. The same is true for those who participate in nude protests like the WNBR, people enjoy being nude as a group but don’t go about assuming that just because someone is nude that they are somehow less than normal or open for sexual advances.
6.Based on what’s been noted above, you perhaps can understand that because there is less focus on the shape/size/colour of the body, naturists tend to accept people as they are much more so than the same people would be on textile sites, where fashion and beauty are more sought after than amongst naturists. Naturism is one of the few activities where money and good looks have less of an advantage than in normal life. In my view, sometimes this is used by naturists to become lazy and not look after their body/health. Whilst I am fully behind the body acceptance culture, I am however against that being used to avoid looking after your health.
7.What about the environment? Some have asked me before. Do the naturists follow the same principles as naturalists or environmentalists? The short answer is NO. Very few naturists share the same thoughts as environmentalists, they enjoy the nature yes, but they don’t necessarily go out of their way to protect it. This, in my own opinion, is not good, Naturism principles include respecting nature, so if you respect it, you should look after it. I believe majority of the naturists pay little attention to global warming, re-cycling and good countryside practices. I have not seen many articles in Naturist publications where they discussed environmental issues. This is not to say ALL naturists behave this way, but in my view majority of them fall into this category. We should not be surprised about this, because after all, Naturists are part of the society in general and this is the state of the society in general. I make this statement even though most of the Naturists I know are much more conscious of the environment needs than I am, this is because I know them through my involvement with the WNBR.
8.Why is there is need to go naked? This is a common question asked by those who have not experienced it. In my view and in my life, nudity is normal. It is part of my life and wearing clothes is only necessary to protect against the weather and to get along in society as one cannot fight the world every day in the same way as Stephen Gough does and has dedicated his life to it. So I guess the question is not whether there is a need to go naked but what is the need to get dressed.
9.Am I a Naturist? Do you have to be naked to be a naturist? This obviously differs for different people, some have to be dressed 24/7 other than when in the Bathroom, others live their whole life in the nude and only dress when absolutely necessary. You, I guess are somewhere in the middle. How often you dress or not is not an indicator as to whether you’re a naturist or not. To me Naturism is a life style as well as a state of mind. So you may only go nude on holidays but you have your naturist mind set all year around.
10.Is Naturism Important? YES! Why? Because naturists are in general very liberal people, they accept others and look out for each other, this is a GOOD human characteristic that should be promoted in any way possible. Life is not about wars and killing and fighting.. maybe not all Naturists are from the 60s with their ‘Spread the Love’ attitude but most love life in general. It is better to have people around you who love life than those who just wish to destroy whatever is in their way.

Getting into a leotard for a workout can be intimidating enough, but imagine doing your entire gym routine in the buff. ERIN KELLY went to Rio's to get fit au naturel 'It's difficult trying to sneak a sideways glance when you're concentrating on not getting your bazookas caught in the pec-dec' 'After two minutes of chaffing my thighs on the running machine I'm in agony'
The interior of the club is like a cross between Club Tropicana and your local Fitness First. Only with lots of naked people in it.
As I parade through, I'm not too fussed about people seeing my boobs, arms, tummy or even my bottom. However, I do wish everyone who witnesses my thighs from behind would be forced to sign the Official Secrets Act.
The first thing I notice is the club isn't full of perfect muscle-bound bodies. Then again, it isn't wall-to-wall Pauline Quirke lookalikes either. There really is no such thing as an average visitor. The clientele ranges from skinny young mums to chubby old men.
Once in the gym area, Rio's friendly general manager Colin Cushion (yes, that's his real name) talks me through working out in the nude. Basically, you have to put your towel on the benches for hygiene, but otherwise it's the same as any other gym. Oh, and if you've got your period you're allowed to wear knickers.
It's Wednesday morning and I'm relieved to find there are only three other people here. I'm told mid-afternoon is the most popular slot but there's also an after-work crowd who like to swap their office suits for their birthday suits and have a quick dip in the pool before dinner.
I decide to hit the treadmill first and instantly discover that naked running is an entirely different sensation to my usual gym warm-up. I keep my jiggly-jogging going for two minutes, but with bouncing bosoms and chaffing thighs, I'm soon in agony.
Apart from the discomfort, I'm worried about long-term damage. The last time I had a bra fitting I was told not to even think about exercising without a sports bra because gravity constantly tugs at ligaments holding your breasts up and once they're gone, they're gone.
Byline: ERIN KELLY
I don't know about you, but one of my favourite things about going to the gym is checking out people's leotards. Sadly, Rio's Health Club in Kentish Town, North London, offers no such fun pastime.
A small, intimate establishment, it has all the features you'd expect to find in a private gym. There's a bench-press, treadmill, bicep-curl machine, pool, and so on. But there's one major difference to your common-or-garden health club. Everyone is stark staring naked.
This is the country's only all-nude gym. It's the kind of thing you'd expect in, say, France or Holland – somewhere more sexually liberated than here anyway. But in little old Blighty, home of the flabby white bum and Great British prude, it'll never catch on. Or will it? Well, that's what I'm here to find out.
So I steel myself, before leaving my inhibitions at the reception desk and my clothes in the ladies' changing room.
It seems odd that a gym full of men and women walking around naked together has separate male and female changing rooms. But I'm glad it does as the hardest bit about being naked is getting naked in the first place.
I'm nervous about whether my behaviour will expose me as a first-timer. And will I get caught staring at someone's bum?
I spend five minutes getting used to walking around in the buff while I wait for my bra-strap marks to fade. Then I emerge in nothing but my earrings, a slick of St Tropez fake tan and trainers (even nudists have to obey health-and-safety rules).
I could run holding my boobs up, but I'd have to let go of the handrail and I'm frightened of being propelled backwards and ending up on the floor in a crumpled nudey heap.
I decide to move on to the step machine. It's hard work but at least there's no jiggling. However, I do have to stick my naked bum out at a 45-degree angle.
I'm relieved to notice there are no mirrored walls. It's unpleasant to catch a glimpse of your red, sweaty face at the best of times – I certainly don't want to see my red, sweaty butt-cheeks as well.

The first thing everybody at Lake Como Nudist Resort seems to want to tell me is they're not like those creeps over at Caliente, the resort up the street. "They're not even nudists," says a nurse in her late 40s, with a red sarong around her waist and grand breasts that rest just short of it, as she drinks a beer at the Butt Hutt, the resort bar. "They're swingers," she hisses softly.
Her man friend nods in agreement. His bare member bounces up and down on a towel-wrapped barstool as he nervously watches the Rays' closer blow a tight game on the bar TV; her sarong ripples as she antsily awaits the conclusion so they can move along to the hot tub, plastic cups in hand.
Just because they're naked and living easy doesn't mean they're libertines at Lake Como. Don't be fooled by the starkers biker types tossing darts (soft-tipped), or by the way this duo slips off into the cloudy night to get stoned before sauntering back to finish beer pitcher No. 3. There are many different ways to be unclothed here in Pasco County, Florida, a semi-rural stretch outside Tampa that has acquired a reputation over the last half-century as "the nudist capital of the world." Bare-assedness comes in distinct social categories.
"This is a nice place," the nurse says. Those people in Caliente—with their "MILFs and Mesh" club parties—are at one end of the spectrum. Lake Como is a "family" resort. Minors are welcome with a parent or guardian. There's tennis and shuffleboard, and a keyboard-playing Jimmy Buffett sound-alike on the pool deck on Saturdays.
I realize she's emphasizing the niceness because I'm an outlier, the only person under 40 unaccompanied by a partner. I'm the naked guy upsetting the naked balance, with tan lines announcing my recent disrobing. It doesn't help that I'm wearing my wedding ring.
I try to reassure them. I just got here, see, for the Christian nudist festival. I am on a sincere spiritual journey with 20 or so new friends.

Sleeping in the buff. many people do it, but they would never say so.
Since it’s nude recreation month and some of us consider sleeping a recreational activity, let’s talk about it.
PJ’s can be a big pain. You can feel all comfy when you drop off to sleep, but wake up sweaty in the middle of the night. Or my favorite problem; getting all tangled in them and waking up with the top all twisted and the pants up to your knees. Not comfy at all!
Sometimes it is simply not worth the effort. let’s face it, sleeping “nekkid” is simple. You take off your clothes, crawl into bed and sleep. No fuss, no muss.
If you are the type of person who is concerned about being caught sans clothes in an emergency, just lay some by your bed!
Besides the obvious bonus of sleeping naked, there is the higher satisfaction in your relationship. It creates a more intimate environment. Not for sex (maybe a little) but the mind translates having no barrier via clothes as having no barrier in the relationship.

I found this site interesting
Growing numbers of people getting the urge to strip naked and walk around in only their birthday suit should follow one piece of advice: be ready to take something to cover up – a naturism expert has cautioned.
Throwing off the shackles of society by striding around with the sun on your bare skin is a primeval sensation which up to four million people enjoy – or wish they could, claims the group British Naturism.
But it most definitely is not a passion shared by all, meaning there is plenty of room for serious misunderstandings between nudists and non-nudists.
When serious confusion does occur then the consequences can be serious, with police or even the courts involved.
So a legitimate nudist runs the risk of being caught with their pants down and facing the prospect of explaining their hobby to a judge.
This pitfalls of nudism have been illustrated starkly in France recently – a country very comfortable with citizens de-robing and walking about in the nip.
A nudist out on a naked stroll spotted a mother and child walking towards him on the same path.To avoid embarrassment, he leapt behind some bushes to stay out of sight while they passed.
This noble act had the opposite effect, unfortunately. The woman spotted a fully naked male trying to conceal himself behind a bush and raised the alarm: he now faces a charge of indecent exposure.
Of course, Britain and France have different laws governing nudity, but the incident does illustrate how very badly wrong unexpected meetings between nudists and non-nudists can go.
In the UK, there is no law against being naked in public, but courts have public order and sexual offences laws available to them.
So how can naturists in Britain avoid a potential dressing down from a judge should they encounter a fully clothed young family in a beauty spot?
And why do it at all?

What defines People as Nudists, I think that Nudists and naturists have many reasons for being naked. Many agree that by going nude, they bring themselves closer to nature and personal enlightenment. Some believe that nudity develops stronger and more truthful relationships between people. Some feel that a deeper or truer understanding of people can be attained by first stripping away outer signs of class, wealth, and style. They argue that mentalities like “clothes make the man” are harmful and judgmental, and by removing the means of preconceptions – clothing – can they see each other as people, and not their social ranks.
A lot of people prefer to live the majority of their lives fairly fully clothed. Some might even spend a good deal of their time focusing on shopping and putting together stylish outfits for this purpose. But there are also a good number of people who prefer to live just the opposite and embrace nudism.
That is, nudism is a lifestyle that is shared by many communities across the world. For some, it offers an alternative or “more natural” way of living. As a side note, “naturism” is actually the term preferred by many nudists today. Nudists, simply speaking, are those who advocate for and embrace a lifestyle that is completely free of clothing.
The history of nudism extends back for centuries. Arguably, many of the ancient peoples were significantly more welcoming of “public” nudity than most “modern” cultures are today. For example, public bathing was once the norm. Even the ancient men-only Olympic Games were once void of uniforms and clothing of any type (with the exception of olive leaf crowns). However, nudism, during modern times did not really grow in popularity until around the 1970’s, at least in the United States.
BUT what do you think

I was looking up google today about Nudist and I found an bit about a secret nudist village here's a little bit about it
At first glance, this sleepy little village looks like any other to be found in the heart of London’s commuter belt.
But the manicured lawns and neatly trimmed bushes are hiding a multitude of skin.
For this outwardly respectable Hertfordshire village is the home of Britain’s oldest naturist colony.
And while you don’t have to be nude to live here – they probably won’t sell you a house if you’re not.
Splashing in the swimming pool, mowing the lawn, even enjoying a pint in the local, its inhabitants are always stripped for action.
But after 85 years of quietly enforcing its undress code, the secret village of Spielplatz – the name means playground – is about to bare all to the rest of us for the first time.
Next month it opens its doors for the first time for a no-shorts-and-all TV documentary for More4.
The nudists next door will be exposing to the world what their neighbours, postmen and supermarket delivery drivers get to see every day of the week.
But veteran resident Iseult Richardson, 82, who has lived in the village nearly all her life, can’t see what all the fuss is about
please find the link to the information about it plus some photo's

I was reading this information and thought that it was interesting what do u think
Is clothing crushing us? Are we trapped in tomb-like textiles, exiling our flesh from experiencing the environment? Are we atrophying our epidermis, our senses, our neuro-intelligence?
If you put a plaster cast on a broken arm the skin starves for Vitamin D, the muscles weaken due to strangled range of motion, the nerve synapses depress to a whimper of their former joy. Twenty-first century hominids? We shroud our entire skin palette except for face, neck and hands – we obliterate symbiosis with the planet.
We hide in cocoons, when we could be free as butterflies.
History reveals many cultures that were not clothes-minded. Spartans were basically bare and their victories in pan-Hellenic sports competitions enticed all neighboring Greeks to exercise nude, creating the word “gymnasium” (Greek gymnos = naked). Romans mingled in magnificent bathhouses, enjoying dense communal nudity as they drank, dined, defecated, bathed, read books, argued politics, and watched theater.
Adamists — naked heretics — performed stripped-down church services in North Africa, Bohemia, the Netherlands, and England. Pre-Hitler Germans were avid adherents of Freikorperkultur (“Free Body Culture”) with 70,000 attending co-ed Nacktkultur schools.
There’s naked Japanese in hot springs, naked Finns in saunas, “sky-clad” Jain monks in India, plus millions of nudists worldwide going to “Nakation” camps, beaches, and resorts.
They’re still sporty as Spartans, eager to hike naked (“free bush rambling”), canoe naked (“canuding”), bicycle naked, ride horses naked, run naked, play volleyball, badminton, ping-pong and chess naked, swim naked, dance naked, do Naked Yoga, Naked Tai Chi, Naked Gardening, Naked Bowling, and of course, many of us, perhaps you and I, dear readers, are NIFOC — Naked In Front of Computers.
Many famous figures were bare-all aficionados; too many politicians to name, so I’ll just list sci-fi and scientists: Leonard Nimoy, Alexander Graham Bell, Robert Heinlein, and seismologist Charles Richter. Nudism is prominent in Philip Jose Farmer’s Riverworld books and John Varley’s Steel Beach. Celebrities? Many movie stars skinny-dip at the French Riviera, trying to elude paparazzi seeking pix of Bruce WIllis’ willy or Natalie Portman’s port side.
Here’s evidence suggesting that skin-only can be superior:
Born Free. Pediatricians agree that infants thrive with a daily dose of “naked time” because the unhampered range of motion aids brain development, stimulating neuron growth. Recent discoveries reveal that the “plastic” brain changes and develops throughout our entire lives. Neuroplasticity pioneer Michael M. Merzenich believes, “Everything that you can see happen in a young brain can happen in an older brain.” Doesn’t this imply that “naked time” is equally valuable for humans of any age, especially the elderly?
Weakened Bodies. A 2003 University of Reading study entitled “A Naked Ape Would Have Fewer Parasites” posits that “humans evolved hairlessness to reduce parasite loads, especially ectoparasites that may carry disease.” Unfortunately, the garments we wear can be a breeding ground for filthy fungi and bad bacterium, causing yeast infections, urinary tract infections, rotting toenails. Lyme Disease deer ticks can grab onto our sweaters and sea lice can sneak into our bathing suit crotches. Cinched-up belts, ties, and clothes impede breathing. Men’s snug pants raise testicle temperature, lowering sperm count and fertility
Barefoot Medicine. Going shoeless is now recognized as an anti-Alzheimer’s, brain-boosting activity because the sole sensation entices your brain into growing extra, efficient neuron connections. Dr. Norman Doidge (author of The Brain That Changes Itself) believes skipping shoes increases brain flexibility and youthfulness, and many podiatrists now advise going barefoot as much as possible. Bare feet are today’s prescription. Will tomorrow’s elixir take the next step: Bare Body?
Superior Socialization. Self-actualization proponent Abraham Maslow believed “Nudism… is itself a kind of therapy.” Health benefits of social nudity include stress reduction, satiation of curiosity about the human body, reduction of porn addiction, a sense of full-body integration and developing a wholesome attitude about the opposite gender. Research at the University of Northern Iowa discovered that nudists have significantly higher body self-acceptance. Another study concluded that teens at a New York nudist camp were “extraordinarily well-adjusted, happy, and thoughtful.” It’s also excellent for children to grow up free of shame about the human body.
Tolerant Views.A University of Central Florida 2008 study of 384 participants concluded that pro-nudity students “were significantly more accepting of other religious groups and gays and lesbians” when compared to the anti-nudity students. They were also “less prejudiced towards ethnically dissimilar others.”
Soothe Away Your Crazies. Massage is recognized as a therapeutic treatment for mental health issues like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolarism, borderline personality disorder, learning difficulties, and low self-esteem. The skin stimulation of massage — improving blood flow and detoxifying the lymph system — is duplicated by the warmth, freedom, and improved circulation generated in nakedness.
Soak Up The Rays Vitamin D deficiency is currently soaring, with up to 75% of USA teens and adults receiving insufficient amounts of the “sunshine vitamin.” Lack of this essential health aid is a factor in numerous ailments, including cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and diabetes. Anyone who bares all outside as a “naturist” harvests larger amounts of Vitamin D in a quicker time span.
Financial Liberation. Clothes are a huge money and time-suck with shopping, laundry, closets, dressers, and gazillions of hours wasted wondering what so-and-so looks like with their garments removed. The global markets for swimsuits alone is expected to reach $17.6 billion annually by 2015; our carbon footprint would shrink like a wool sweater if fabric was no longer manufactured.
Longevity (just joking!). Have you noticed that the furry Norway Rat only lives 2-3 years, while the Naked Mole Rat survives to be 28?
So… is the future going to be full frontal? Will the post-Singularity planet be stripped? Will everyone in a climate-controlled tomorrow choose to be nude, strutting around like the Nuba dancers and boxers of Leni Reifenstahl?
Trends point to an era where there won’t be a stitch to worry about. Many resort areas are are now offering nudism to increase tourism, and American naturist clubs claim their enrollment is growing 20% annually. The German airline OssiUrlaub.de offered nude chartered flights to a Baltic sea resort, and today’s lengthy luggage searches at airports are steering travelers to destinations where they only need carry-on towels and sunblock. Twenty million Europeans already go to nude beaches and spas.

There are many hobbies and interests that women -and men- do not necessarily share with their partner. In the normal scheme of things, men might go fishing or to a football match. Women may go a bundle on yoga or cupcakes (in the interests of equality, I am sure there are some men around who are also very fascinated by cupcakes, and women who go fishing) and neither sex will feel a need to justify or explain those interests.
But ladies, how do you feel if your man has suddenly announced an interest in naturism?
Naturism's image in the UK, besides having one fostered by the Carry On films and volleyball games accompanied by a lot of bouncing behind the shrubbery, has not been helped by naked ramblers who always seem to be male, appearing before the courts. So understandably, you might be alarmed and not know what to think about it.
First of all, these stereotypes are not the true picture of naturism as it is, and despite simple nudity for it's own sake at times being rather sensationalised by the media, I hope to convince you that it is a lovely and wholesome activity with a lot to offer women in particular, and explain what it means to me as a female.
It gives you a sense of well being; the feeling of sun and water all over the body is one of the greatest joys in life and it is good for you! It is also good for you mentally as it gives you confidence in your body image and how you look naturally, without trying to conform or imitate an impossible and artificial photo shopped image. You never need to work at being bikini ready. It is a great de stresser, as you are not trying to be something you are not. You are just yourself, with nothing expected of you, but just to enjoy the sun, water and air as you are.
