Social Nudity

Social Nudity Blogs and Articles

Social Nudity, in a nut shell, is the act of socializing with other people while in the nude. The nudity is non sexual in nature and the activities can range from simply conversing with other, to playing sports and anything else or any other activities one enjoys partaking in. Social nudity is simply doing things with others while naked whereas Naturism or Nudism are belief systems. That said, people who practice social nudism and / or naturism may take part in social activities while in a state of undress.
