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.

Ten Things You Can Do to Promote Clothes-Freedom
As the current news illustrates,
public nudity on beaches, college campuses, ski
slopes, and elsewhere has been the subject of quite a bit of activity recently,
both pro and con. In some cases (e. g. Australia and Wisconsin), nudity has won
explicit (or at least tacit) approval, while in others (e. g. Florida and
Hawaii), some officials are still fighting against it.
Although the legitimacy of
social nudity on private property was settled long ago (in most U. S.
jurisdictions), opponents continue to devise new avenues of attack. And nudity
in suitable public locations remains a subject of considerable controversy, as
it has for over 30 years in North America.
Victories on behalf of
clothes-freedom do not come about automatically. Secure, pleasant locations for
the enjoyment of nudity don't just "happen". In almost all cases, the efforts of
many people have been required. Though there are many different specific actions
required in each case, there are also a number of general steps people who like
to be naked can take to promote the way of being that they prefer. Here's a
short list. I won't explain each item in detail - each could be the subject of
an essay in itself. In most cases, the purpose and benefit should be obvious.

OK, that's more than 10. And
more could be added. But it seems about right as a place to start.
If you've just been waiting for
encouragement to get naked from a mainstream source, especially if you are
female, now you have it. The May issue of Mademoiselle has an article on
"nude-o-phobia" which (very briefly) analyses the common fear of being naked,
and offers a 5-step program to overcome it. The "5 steps to a more naked you:"
Expose yourself. (Get comfortable being nude
Get to know your body. (Pay attention to your
body's sensory signals, especially when unclothed.)
Look at yourself. (Become familiar with - and
accepting of - how you look without clothes.)
Move on to semipublic nudity. (In commonly
acceptable circumstances, such as a locker room.)
Graduate to social nudity. (The real thing.)
The feature, of course, is about
body acceptance. The message has been repeated often enough, that people (women
especially) are needlessly unhappy due to fears their bodies are somehow not
"right". But this time the way to overcome the problem is stated very clearly.
As the magazine's editor-in-chief herself says, "Go find a nude beach. Remove
all your clothes."
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.
