Why Nude?

Why not? Naturism and nudism mean different things to different people, but can generally be described as philosophy that nudity is acceptable, at home, outdoors, and social environments with like minded people. There’s a lot of debate about what words to use, and what they mean. What ties us all together is we enjoy being naked, and question the ideology of clothing that is such a persistent force in most modern societies. That there should be a time and place for being naked. That nudity is about body acceptance of all shapes, sizes, and colors.

So why do we do it? There reasons are as varied as we are. The feeling of the sun, air, and water over your whole body, unimpeded, can be wonderful. Being naked is comfortable, freeing, and stress relieving. In being naked, we are all bit more equal, and can relate to each other more directly, as we are just ourselves, without being wrapped in a layer of clothes to both hide and project who we are. It is a closer connection to nature. That all bodies are beautiful when allowed to simply be.
