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. Those terms refer to the practice of going nude when appropriate.  Those who participate in nudism and naturism take part in social activities while they are naked.

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, not nudists, that has a problem with acceptance. Clothes are not really considered necessity 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.
