I have deleted distracting language that I hoped to use as an example of why our recruiting efforts fail. It was misleading and I apologize. The issue is not naturist vs nudist but the discussion about the division.
I also erred on using an American idiom that was completely misunderstood and taken literally. It is gone.
Food for Thought
What are we missing? We are looking for ways to expand the public knowledge of a clothing free lifestyle and for ways to attract younger people yet the discussions often center about what defines a true nudist or naturist.
The general public doesn't care about that.
Then we wonder why the younger generation isn’t joining.
We claim that the body is natural not shameful. All the various parts are natural not shameful. We the unclothed then show pictures of fit men and women with their genitals visible but then sometimes hidden. Having restricted the showing of genitals, ourselves, we condemn a worldwide, popular, on-line social platform reaching millions of people, complaining that this particular website does not allow total nudity but has some of the body hidden. That site just like this site banned genitals. I call it hypocritical horror.
Then we wonder why the younger generation isn’t joining this drama laden bunch of old purists.
I am still on Facebook. It is international and goes to countries that ban nudity completely. They cannot show photos that the Naktiv site shows but they can show nudists living and playing. My page is mostly limited to family for identification security but I do have friends, old and new. I post censored photos. Genitals are not visible but people know they are there. The photos show me having fun, living nude, naked and unclothed but you can’t see those shamed parts. There are several nudist groups on the site yet I post my photos in my home page.
I uploaded (or downloaded???) the photos to the Naktiv site for your benefit.They are mostly duplicates of what is onsite already.
