Social Nudity

Social Nudity Blogs and Articles

Social Nudity is widely misunderstood by those who are on the outside looking in. Those who believe in living life in a nude setting will refer to the lifestyle as Naturism or Nudism. It refers to the practice of going nude any place, any time. It is considered to be social because those who participate take part in social activities that are generally attended while in clothing. Nudists (those who practice social nudism) have a complete acceptance of their bodies and do not feel the need to hide behind clothing. Whether in private or public, they are so comfortable in their own skin that no adornment is necessary. It is the general population that has a problem with acceptance, not Nudists. Clothes are not considered necessary unless weather or other natural conditions require added protection. Regardless of the time or place, the members of a Social Nudist community are free with themselves. It is not a matter of flaunting their bodies or trying to be scandalous. Social nudists believe the human body is a thing of beauty and there is no reason to be embarrassed by it.
