Nudists and The Nudist Lifestyle

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.
