Nudist Summer Forest Hike With The Youngsters
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.

Younger Nudists (nude living & concerns) Many people who investigate naturism
and/or social nudity a little are surprised to find that (in Holland, at least)
it seems to be something that appeals mostly to people over 36. This have not to
be so, and it is something that needs to change in order for the pleasures of
clothes-freedom to be available to as many people as possible. Young people who
have looked into nudism and naturism or visited nude beaches are often dismayed
to find relatively few in their own age group. Many (most?) others never even
give the possibility of social nudity a thought since it seems to be so far
outside the norms of society as they have experienced it.
Yet there are reasons why one might expect young people to be more inclined to
tolerate and have an interest in nakedness than older folks:
1.Being naked is pleasurable and fun - and young people especially like what's
2.Young people have the time and inclination to enjoy life and have fun. (They
may feel that they have little free time - but they will have even less time
when they are deeply involved with a career and have a family to support!)
3.Young people have had less time to become entangled in social structures that
might discourage an interest in nudity (e. g. a career, the rat race, kids of
their own, etc.)
4.Having had less time to internalize social taboos, young people ought to be
more daring and more inclined to try new and unusual things.
people should be less worried about how their bodies look since they
haven't suffered the bulges, sags, and scars of advancing age.
6.Young people are less likely to be in a committed relationship where the other
person is strongly opposed to nudity.
Unfortunately for all concerned - both the younger and the older generation -
there is an unequal representation of age groups among people who like to be
naked, especially in social situations. And this under-representation itself
becomes a deterrent for young people to become involved with social nudity, just
as it does with other demographic categories, such as women. It hasn't always
been this way. The generation of people who came of age in the 60s and 70s were
more at ease with nudity (even though, statistically, interest in nudity was
still rather outside of the mainstream). Perhaps this has more than a little to
do with why this generation, now middle-aged, is more strongly represented in
social nudity than younger people.
People in this age range can recall (if they happen to be male) when it was
normal to swim naked at the Y. They remember, fondly, the clothing optional
parties and skinny dipping that weren't uncommon on campuses in the late 60s and
70s. They flocked in large numbers to the "free" beaches - many of which still
are "clothing optional", but rather less heavily used. How can young people
become more involved in clothes-freedom and social nudity? Here are some general
suggestions, both for young people themselves, and for anyone who wants to see
clothes-freedom available to people of all ages. It shouldn't be a secret that
only certain older folks know about.
1.No one's arm needs to be twisted to discover the enjoyment of nakedness. Just
trying it once in a pleasant, supportive environment is usually enough to
convince someone who has no entrenched hang-ups about nudity. The environment
can be in the privacy of one's own home. "Just do it."
2.Keep in mind that the world of clothes-freedom, social nudity, naturism, or
whatever it's called is very diverse. it isn't just one thing. It isn't
(necessarily) a lifestyle you need to follow at all times. There are many
different ways to enjoy it. There will be aspects of this world that are more to
your own personal liking than others. Try to find what is right for you.
3.There are a number of specific, easy steps anyone can take to begin
experiencing and enjoying the pleasures of clothes-freedom and social nudity.
Here is an organized list of suggestions for how to get started that should be
useful to people of any age.
4.Read and think about some of the reasons why young people are most often
discouraged from trying social nudity. There are specific suggestions for
overcoming each of the obstacles and deterrents.
5.Look for online places where you can discuss clothes-freedom, social nudity,
and naturism with others, many of whom have useful experience. There are many
alternatives, such as discussion forums, chat rooms, mailing lists, and
individual Web site guest books. There are lists of such sites here.
6.Get involved with various online groups which are specifically trying to help
young people learn about and experience clothes-freedom. Some of these are
places with the specific purpose of helping young people with a common interest
in social nudity make contact with each other. You'll find several such groups
in the following list of external links. (And getting involved means actively
taking part, not just talking about doing something.)
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.
