"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."

Are Nudism & Naturism Natural?

I have read Nudism Is Unnatural and Naturism Is Natural by Timothy Ach in his Catholic in the 21st Century blog, and I have to disagree with him on several points he has made. He seems to be making assumptions that are primarily based upon Biblical scripture and Catholic Catechism. In previous posts from his […]

Changing priorities

My ideas about naturism as well as my participation have gone through many transitions and evolutions over the past decade. Although I probably fit into the demographic profile of the average  AANR or TNS member, it’s not a comfortable fit. It’s been at least five or six years since I’ve been to a nudist park […]

Commando in February

How marvelous it is to go commando in Ohio in February. When the temperature is in the mid-sixties I usually take advantage of the opportunity. When temperatures are warm enough to permit full nudity I’m frustrated that society is not enlightened enough to permit it as well.

Nudity is our natural state, our default state of […]

Naked and Happy: Nudity is a complete and normal state

Nudity is a complete and normal state describes how being nude is a natural state but how being a naturist in a textile world is a journey. I certainly agree.

…nudity is a natural state. Shame of nudity is a learned behavior. Nudity equals sex is a taught equation, and for many religions, sex is bad, […]

Naked Time

I enjoyed some extended naked time today. I had a naked lunch, watched a couple of films on Netflix and did some reading. Why do I enjoy my naked time? I believe that it’s because I simply enjoy the comfort of being nude. Other factors such as the feeling of freedom, the physical and mental […]


The issue is not being naked…it is the perception of that nakedness.

Naked with the Shamans by Freya Watson and Naked. Perfection. Celebration by Carly Mountain both discuss our relationships with out bodies. Our society gives us contradictory messages about how how our bodies should be and how we should feel about them. These messages are […]

Penultimate Day, 2012

“I simply find myself caring about the issue less and less. It’s not a passion for being naked that draws me to nudism, but ambivalence about being clothed. For some people it may be about a thrill, or a movement, or even some sort of cause, but for me it’s just about being comfortable.” ~ […]

Naturist Math - East Texas Area Naturists

We can choose to honor naturalness rather than condemn it,

for that condemnation builds a prison in our own minds

that manages to divide us from the vessels that carry us through the day.

Skin is skin and just that.

The rest of the story is a trick […]

Naked Yoga

In the March 2011 issue of The Bulletin, I found an article about a the creation of a nude Hatha Yoga class in New Jersey. It doesn’t say whether or not the class was mixed gender but I get the impression it was since with was attended by members or Sky Farm and Rock Lodge. […]

Our Natural State

To be nude is to to be in one’s natural state. We are born nude and clothing is almost immediately forced upon us, beginning a lifetime of denying, struggling with, and resisting everything that is natural about ourselves and our environment. The compulsion or the perceived need to wear clothing even when it isn’t practical […]
