Imagine going to a place where wearing clothing is
not required. A place where families can come
together and enjoy a day unlike any other. Indoor or
out, summer or snow, friends shed it all for a different
kind of living. A life free of crippling social
inhibitions with no need for repressive clothing.

University of Pennsylvania
Naturist Student Association
Certainly among the most publicized and reported student naturist groups is the
Naturist Student Association at the University of Pennsylvania.
Nude Student Association began in 1993 after
Gons Nachman, then a first-year student at Penn Law School, staged a nude
demonstration in defense and demonstration of freedom of expression for the
school's First Amendment Day. Naturist philosophy and materials like TNS'
World Guide to Nude Beaches were among the tools Nachman used in his
presentation. He formed the naturist group the following semester as an
expansion of the ideals espoused on the law school steps that day. Nachman's
demonstration is reported in N 12.4, p. 96.
The group's first major campus event, a nude outdoor rally on Penn's College
Green, occurred in May 1994 as a show of support for naturism and freedom of
expression on campus. Ten participating club members handed out literature,
showed naturist videos, demonstrated body painting and spoke. Hundreds of Penn
students, faculty, administrators and local media folks witnessed the
celebration, which was entirely peaceful and considered a great success (see
N13.4, p. 102).
Members of Nude Student Association then held an outdoor nude modeling session
for Penn art students in September 1994--and a second "Spring Celebration" in
May 1995 to promote the group, gaining further publicity on- and off-campus.
"The local media covered [the celebration] in a non-sensationalist and fair
manner," Nachman reports. "By holding this spring outdoor event for the second
year in a row in a non-disruptive fashion, we have also managed to create a
solid precedent that would be difficult [for campus administration] to eliminate
in the future. The university has basically accepted our existence and our
activities without any kind of challenge or disruption," Nachman said.
In addition to the annual rallies Nude Student Association holds weekly
clothing-optional study hours, conducts monthly meetings, and sponsors social
events for its members. The group managed to secure a place on campus for
clothing-optional sunbathing for the summer and continues to work towards
getting hours set aside for clothing-optional open swims in one of Penn's
pools--"Although the initial response from the director of recreation was a
resounding 'no,' we will address his concerns and if necessary appeal to higher
levels of authority," Nachman says.
Group members have also contacted state legislators to express disagreement with
proposed HB 940, a bill that seeks to outlaw public nudity in Pennsylvania.
After receiving honors as "most memorable student" of his graduating class for
his naturist work, Nachman left Penn to join the real world after graduation
Last may. Nude Student Association continues to operate under the leadership of
Penn grad student Philip Tromovitch (though Nachman remains the primary
As one of the more well-established student naturist clubs in the country, Nude
Student Association can serve well as a model for similar groups. Their contact

The naturist photo and video documentaries that we offer are legal in every city, every state and every county inside the United States. They are protected by the First Amendment and are not subject to local obscenity laws or ordinances. The depiction of adults and children nude in the visual media has enjoyed constitutional protection in the United States since 1958, when the Supreme Court vacated a Court of Appeals finding that Sunshine& Health magazine could be obscene (Sunshine Book Co. v. Summerfield, Postmaster General, 355 U.S. 372). The right to depict adults and children in innocent nude poses has been upheld without a pause for 41 years. In case after case, the Supreme Court and lower courts have always upheld the constitutionality of "nudity without more," specifically referring to the nudist depiction as a fully constitutional form of expression. Our website is widely visited in all of Asia, Europe, South America, Canada, Australia and Africa. The only exception may be countries where nudity of any kind is banned.
