"Nudity is our ideal state, our pure state, our natural state, our default state. Clothing is always a deviation from the default and is, therefore, a compromise and an aberration.."

"Body shame originates in our minds with our thoughts and perceptions. Neither our religion nor our culture makes us ashamed of our bodies, only our belief that we should be ashamed. Shame comes from our own thoughts which we have the power to change. If we perceive no shame then there is none. No one can make you feel ashamed without your permission."

truenudists revisited

After leaving TrueNudists a couple years ago (it may have been longer ago) I joined again about three months ago. I filled out my profile, added a profile picture, and joined a couple of groups but other than that, I haven’t been particularly active. I’ve browsed through the forums without finding much of interest, mostly […]

I'm Pregnant and...A Nudist

Yesterday evening I watched I’m Pregnant and… A Nudist on Discovery Health. Sherri, the expectant mother in this story, is a third generation nudist whose grandmother owns and operates a nudist retreat in Texas and much of the program was filmed there (with the expected blurring, of course). Over all, I thought it treated […]

DIY Nudist Retreat

When my backdoor neighbor erected a privacy fence around his backyard it got me to thinking about my ideas for creating a private space in my backyard once again. I procured a few fence posts and some clamps, pulled a few tarps out of storage and threw this together:

At this point it’s a work in […]

Guide to Nudists

Thanks to i-Naked/i-Nudist for posting this. And thanks to Steve Crowley for his nudist cartoons.

Why Nudists Don't Get Erections

I found this excerpt from the article Nudity by Leonard Blank from Psychology Today, dated June 1969. It refers to a study by Lawrence Casler, of the State University of New York at Geneseo, in which he studied 115 nudists. One of his major findings was that nudists are not sexually aroused by the sight […]

Day Tripping 101

In Day tripping 101: Essentials for a successful nakation, Detroit Day Trips Examiner Laura Leyrer gives us a short list of essential items for a trip to our favorite nude beach or resort. It really is a short list: sunscreen, a hat, a couple of towels, and water. I’m sure we can all come up […]


On the Daily Record’s The Photojournalist blog, photojournalist Bob Karp recounts his assignments covering The Goodland Country Club in Hackettstown, New Jersey.

After about an hour of lunch and talking with some of our new friends, I actually started feeling incredibly self-conscience. It actually had nothing to do with everyone around me being stark naked, but […]

Truenudists is going freemium

It appears that is the latest victim of Paypal’s arbitrary acceptable use policy. You may recall that Paypal canceled the account for the Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN) last year because they arbitrarily deemed Going Natural to be “socially unacceptable.” At that time, naturists called Paypal out about their apparent hypocrisy in the matter.

The […]

Banned in Michigan

This label, featuring a nude-beach scene with a cleverly placed beach towel and other summer-themed toys has been deemed “detrimental to the health, safety, or welfare of the general public” by Michigan’s Liquor Control Commission.

Not only is actual nudity perceived as a threat to the American way of life and civilization as we know it […]

Naked Dawn

Credit to Mahoning Valley Naturist on this one. It’s a faux movie trailer from Rob Schneider that’s a parody of the movie Red Dawn but this time the foreign invaders make an amphibious landing at a nudist “colony.”

Too bad it’s not a real movie, I’d actually go to a theater and see this as well […]
