Let the #NATURIST in you COME OUT!

Posted on January 9, 2019

You're a naturist and are you constantly being banned and blocked by people who don't understand you? What is it about the naked human body that sends so many people into paroxysms of censorship and puritan fist waving? It seems that it's ok to post images and videos of violence and bloodshed, but let a little too much skin show and you get a wrist slap like no other. It's often immediate and one has no recourse to appeal, all the big guns do it, as soon as advertising and their hand-in-glove corporate mind-set get a grip on what they think is the moral high ground, you're toast. It happens time and time again, certainly to me and to many people I know.

The answer seems to drive people into private groups and places where "nobody else can see", just like the traditional naturist clubs of yore. This is an outdated model. If naturists want to have anything to say about what we do and where we can go and how we can behave, in public and in private, then we need to take these matters into our own hands.

There's no point in waiting for someone else to be nice to you, and to give you public nudity on a plate. We want it, then we have to take it. We have to get together and focus our energies on making society accept our lifestyle based on our principles, not based on the principles of people who don't understand it and never will. We need to take a leaf out of the gay movement and make it illegal to discriminate against naked people.

Take a look at the Naktiv #social #media #network where being #naked online is OK and the membership control the content, let's get together in a safe place and then share our adventures with the entire world.

What are you waiting for? Let the #NATURIST in you COME OUT!

    Rich, THAT was EPIC! I am moving more and more toward open advocacy of a Nudist Lifestyle. There is nothing bad about Nudism unless there is a Sexual Component that is added by the Nudist. Like you said, we need to get the leverage of the Gay Community and start to kick the door in. I have been a nudist advocate for years and I have pushed for the slow rolling acceptance, gradual acceptance of Social and/or Public Nudity. Problem is that 3 years of work can be undone with one unfair headline. So, I loke you am coming to realize that Public and Social Nudity must be advocated much like the Gay Community did with their issues. We must start to assert that we have rights, rights to normalization of nudity as was common prior to the Victorian Era. We must move forward. We must progress!

  3. I have seen many photographs of friends posing themselves beside the statue of David. The statue is fully visible! They have no problem posting them on Facebook. And no problem being seen with the statue. But if that were a live person standing there it would be totally different. Stone works of art are perfectly okay but not living flesh!
