There are probably many answers to this question, almost as many as there are naturists. Some like to refer to the fact that they were born that way. Yes, some even try it for the wrong reasons, but it quickly becomes evident that sex is not what it is about. If someone attempts to participate for this reason they are soon disappointed and leave on their own. Respectful and courteous behavior toward others is expected. Disrespectful behavior is not tolerated. Naturism is about freedom, enjoyment, and getting in touch with yourself and the real personality in others. At first it can be an exciting or even fearful experience simply due to the mental attitude or baggage we bring with us. The negatives quickly melt away to be replaced with a wonderful feeling of acceptance of yourself and others.

What a joy to skinny-dip,
Bare as one can be,
Water felt on all my skin
As it washes over me.
To feel warming rays all over, lying in the sun,
Remembering to rotate when one side enough is done.

The concept of the perfect body is a myth. We believe that the stress caused by the unrealistic expectations of society is very damaging. Naturists practice body acceptance. When you visit a naturist environment you'll find all types of bodies in all shapes, sizes, ages and colors — many of them with the signs of a full life.

Why do people become Naturists?

Why wouldn't someone want to be, while not a valid answer it does in my opinion express the body of the answer.
It's the closest thing that there is to true freedom in this day and age. To be able to shed one's insecurities along with their clothing,stand there bare to the world and for all intents and purposes say "Here I am with all my imperfections and flaws, accept me as I am " is empowering and uplifting.


Why people become nudists

I think that the question is not so much why people become nudists as why they do not. I have discovered more often than not that the majority out there do not object all that much to public nudity at least under the surface. Mostly the objections come under the heading of "I couldn't be naked I might be arrested, what would my neighbors think if I got naked, the only folks that walk around naked are perverts or at least kinky or out there aren't they or some other thing!
While sometimes these things happen mostly its fear that keeps most folks from trying it out and thats too bad. There are more fence sitters and those that are secretly sympathetic or even envious of your ability to be nude than you might think. Don't believe it, check out some of the online video on public nudity or in some cases practical jokes played out on the public, notice how the average person reacts, you don't see everyone running for a the phone to call the cops, mostly they smile, laugh, in some situation even encourage or congratulate those brave enough to be nude in front of everyone else.
This being the case I believe that there are far more people who would like to try being naked than you might think and this is why education and lobbying the lawmakers is so important. The laws need to be changed, those that make the rules need to understand the financial rewards, the public rewards and the reduction of waste that can be achieved by understanding the nudist naturist position. A lifestyle choice that needs to be explained publicly and everywhere.
Clothes are unnecessary most of the time except for climatic cold that might make wearing them necessary. I myself detest clothes and seldom wear any even in winter accept to go out somewhere. Even at this moment I am naked and have been for the last couple of days. Thanks for this forum, stay naked and God Bless Uriel

A citation would be nice

I don’t know whether to be flattered or upset, but it would be nice if Sarababe would place in quotes and provide a citation for the paragraph above. The entire first paragraph was written by me and lifted verbatim from a website that I wrote and created several years ago. It can be found at http://montananaturist.org on the page labeled “Articles on Naturism.”

While I like to have naturism promoted as much as possible I think it is only fair and respectful to give credit to a source when it is known and not leave the impression that the words are their own.

Why not ...what is more comfortable than being nude regardless of the circumstances..I mean as long as the temperature is nice..why would anyone want to wear clothing? Nude is Natural, its the way we came into the world and the way we should enjoy the world..whenever possible.

There can be few reasons for people to become naturists but, apparently, many reasons why people object to it. If you are warm enough you don't need clothes but, because of their upbringing, most people detest seeing a naked body, it is rude to show certain parts of your body. Remember the Victorians covering the legs of their pianos? Or was that really not true. Parents think they are doing the right thing by continuing the customs of their upbringing and the local police don't help by following up trivial complaints made by the public. I hear that Spain and Portugal are going to relax even more their restrictions on people eing able to go nude. Eastern Europeans already have much more freedom in such matters.
