Frequently Asked Questions about Nudism!

Got questions? Well we’ve got a few real answers you’ve been looking for!

Question 1:  Why do people choose nude recreation?

A: Nude recreation embraces the joy of living and experiencing nature in the most natural way possible. To relax and be nude is to let yourself be totally free. Although we enjoy clothing-free activities in appropriate settings, we also choose to wear clothes when practical. Nudists respect each other’s individuality. Our own self-esteem is enhanced by our ability to accept ourselves as we really are. We find it easy to accept others regardless of physical size, shape, or body condition. Moreover, social class distinctions, often indicated by clothing, disappear.Relaxation, stress relief, positive body image, and increasing self-esteem are just a few of the reasons people choose the nudist lifestyle.

Question 2   What special preparations should I make before visiting a nudist park?

A:    Generally none at all, apart from those you would normally make to go anywhere.

Question 3   Are children likely to be shocked by their first sight of nudists?

A:   No. Children are natural nudists and usually take to it with a minimum of adjustment.

Question 4   What should I bring?

A:   Bring towels, comfortable footwear, suntan lotion and sunglasses. You might also want to bring a hat, something to read, and any sporting equipment desired.

Question 5   What is the cost?

A:   That varies from park to park and generally costs less than public RV campgrounds.

Question 6   Will I be embarrassed by my surgical scars?

A:   No, you will not. Approximately one nudist in three carries some mark of surgery; these marks make no difference at all. Ignore them because everyone else will. Your personality will be noticed more than any scar.

Question 7   My figure, to say the least, is less than perfect. Will I feel out of place?

A:   About one figure in twenty seen at a nudist park is exemplary; the rest
will be like people everywhere. Actually, a person’s physical
proportions means less in nudist parks than elsewhere. Many nudists
(male and female) will never take any prizes for physical beauty.
Ladies who are disturbed by the thought that they might be less than
ideal in this regard should put aside their concerns. The problem
doesn’t exist.

Question 8   What about periods or menstruation?

A:   Menstruation is looked upon as a normal, healthy function. The wearing
of shorts or the use of tampons enables women to enjoy most of
their nudist activities. It is not a subject of notice or comment.

Question 9   Are there any religious implications involved in nudism?

A:   Not at all. Nudists represent all major faiths and most of the lesser ones.

Question 10   Do men become visibly embarrassed during their visits to a nudist resort?

A:   This is a personal question. The answer is “No,” because nudist parks
are not sexually stimulating. Many men fear this problem but instances
of such embarrassment are extremely rare.

Question 11   May a married person visit the park without his/her spouse?

A:   Family nudism is exactly that. Your first visit to a nudist park should be a shared experience.

Question 12   Are unmarried adults eligible for membership?

A:   Yes, but individual parks have their own rules. It is best to check with them.

Question 13   Will my picture be taken?

A:   Photography in nudist parks is very closely controlled. Some parks will not permit it at all.
No one is ever photographed at a club without specific permission in each
instance. Children may not be photographed without their consent and
that of their parents. Some parks provide photo corners where you can
take all the pictures you wish of your own family.

Question 14   If I visit a nudist park, will I be subject to publicity?

A:   Of course not, unless you deliberately seek it out. Privacy is fully
respected in nudist parks. People who are known as nudists usually
announce it themselves. No park will ever publicize your presence
without your explicit permission.

Question 15   Is it likely my wife would be improperly approached at a nudist park?

A:   Of course not. If such a thing were to occur, you’d notify the manager at once.
The offending individual would be ejected and their membership card would be picked up.

Question 16   Can I expect any real health benefits from nudism?

A:   Nudism embraces traditionally healthy activities such as swimming,
hiking, volleyball and outdoor living. Mental health is improved by the
positive attitudes about self-image, healthy sexuality, relief from
stress and just plain relaxation. Benefits specific to nudity may yet
be scientifically proven whereby direct sunlight is valuable for all
parts of the human body. Doctors have been known to prescribe nudism
for skin problems and general well-being. Pregnant women benefit from
sunlight in the genital area and on their nipples making childbirth and
breastfeeding more comfortable. Eyesight is improved by exposure to
natural light. The body’s circulation may be improved by the lack of
constrictive clothing.
