Young Naturists America and Body Image
This brings us to one of our main missions – Body Image and the promotion of body acceptance! Body Image issues seem to plague many in today’s society. We at YNA, hope, that with time and through social nudity, people and families will learn what body acceptance is all about.
We strongly believe that it is far more important who the person is, rather than what they look like or how much money they have. Nudists and Naturists from around the world enjoy social nudity and with all due respect to those who might not agree, we feel there is nothing wrong with the naked body or social nudity in general! We hope that society, one day, will learn that people are just people, nothing more and nothing less.
Human beings come in all shapes and sizes and no one should be judged on how they look, what job they have or how much money they make… People should be judged on the essence of who they truly are and / or the things they do and say.
Come to a YNA event and see for yourself that every person’s body is unique and different. But before you do, perhaps you should take a moment and read our Nudist Etiquette. While we don’t judge people who enjoy sexually driven events, our organization is about enjoying naturism and social nudity in a non-sexual setting. Young Naturists and Nudists America (YNA) has absolutely nothing to do with promoting sex. What it does promote is – acceptance!
Like it or not, nudity is a big deal in our culture. Nudity is associated with exposure, freedom, vulnerability, and even shame. Many view the naked body as inherently sexual, immodest and sometimes even immoral. But there is a growing number of people who are questioning their long-held beliefs of nudity, nudism and what it represents.
Welcome to Nudist Naturist America, the home of Young Naturists and Young Nudists America or YNA for short. Here we promote a healthy body image, advocate for more social acceptance and try to put an end to cyber bullying and bullying in general. Through Social Nudity / Naturism we hope to be able to impact the world in a positive manner in our own unique nudie way!
