Nudists are normal, morally responsible respectable citizens – singles, couples and families – who just happen to share a passion for wholesome social nudity. ~ Liz & James Egger in The Complete Guide to Nudism and Naturism
The phrase Ordinary Naked People recently appeared among search terms in my blog stats. It seemed so obvious that it sort of jumped out at me.
Yes, nudists and naturists are ordinary people. We are ordinary people who prefer not to wear clothes when there is no practical necessity for wearing them, who are comfortable in our own skins, who have learned that outward appearances don’t really matter and who have rejected the popular media’s impossible ideals of beauty and perfection.
We are ordinary people who believe that skin does not equal sin and that concepts of decency, modesty and morality apply to one’s behavior rather than one’s state of dress. We are ordinary people who believe that simple nudity is beneficial to our physical and mental health. As ordinary people we hold that nudity should be neither a moral nor a criminal concern.
We are ordinary naked people — law abiding, decent, respectable citizens who want the same things as ordinary clothed people.
I am an ordinary person.
