Nudism and Naturism

Nudism and Naturism by Young Naturists and Nudists America – YNA

Nudism or Naturism is one of the fastest growing forms of recreation in the United States today. Join the growing number of people who enjoy non sexual nude recreation and the nudist lifestyle. You don’t have to be a long time nudist or naturist to participate – all you need is to be comfortable in your own skin. Body image and body acceptance are an issue that seems to plague many in today’s society but we hope that with time people will find out that it is far more important who the person is rather than what they look like. Nudists and Naturists from around the world enjoy being naked and there is nothing wrong with the nude body! We hope that as time goes by people will learn that people are people. We come in all shapes and sizes and believe that one should not be judged on how they look, what job they do or how much they make… people should be judged on the essence of who they truly are!
