” Why naturism is such a tough sell for our clothing restricted societies “

The Naked Truth.........


Is it any wonder that people have developed a negative view of naturism? It is nearly impossible to find any authentic positive information on naturist culture without seeing the overwhelming amount of trashy pornography on the web. The pornography industry intentionally creates a linkage between nudity and sex to make money and it is virtually impossible for naturists to overcome that label Even mainstream media helps to promote the false premise. Rarely are articles written in the UK that portray nudity in a positive way. Instead local readers receive a steady diet of naked people involved in outlandish, outrageous or seedy acts. The fact is that there is a great deal more about naturism than nakedness.

Benefits of social nudity: body acceptance

Naturist Philosopher

Many lists have been compiled over the years enumerating the many beneficial characteristics of social nudity. One typical recent list highlights 10 benefits: 10 reasons why I am a nudist. At the top of this one, like most others, is: “Because it feels good.” That is a great reason, and perfectly true. It’s hardly necessary to explain further.

However, there are many more good reasons for and benefits of social nudity. Almost certainly the most comprehensive list was compiled by the (U. S.) Naturist Society: 205 Arguments and Observations In Support of Naturism. It was first published in Issue 16.1 of their magazine Nude and Natural in 1996.

Here’s one more example, from a Canadian teen naturist: The Top 15 Way Cool Reasons To Spend a Day or a Weekend at a Nudist Campground/Beach.

The topic, of course, has been addressed on this blog, though infrequently…
