- 205 Arguments and
Observations In Support of Naturism
THE UNITED STATES LAGS FAR BEHIND most of the rest of Western
Civilization in its negative attitude toward the human body. While
most of Europe is comfortable with the concept of nude recreation on
beaches and in vacation resorts, here in the U.S., conservative
political action groups seek to criminalize even the most innocent
exposure of the human body. Often these groups gain support by
purporting to defend "family values" or "Christian morality."
NUDITY, - AS MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE
There seem to be a number of passages that mention nudity in the
presence of others as acceptable behavior. There also appears to be many
instances in the history of the Christian Church where public nudity was
a normal activity. Naturism is not disallowed by the Bible, or by church
tradition and that Christians should feel free to investigate naturism
Nudity and the Bible
Many nudists are Christians who adhere to the Bible’s teachings. If
you’re new to this lifestyle and are also religiously devout, you might
be nervous about being deemed a sinner. After all, the Bible very
clearly states that when Adam and Eve were in right with God, they were
naked. When people are in right with God, they do not have to fear
What the New Testament says about clothing?
Surprisingly, it says almost nothing about men's clothing and gives no specific
commands about the style or length of women's clothing.
- Is Nudity Wrong?
Although the Bible plainly states that there was no shame of nudity before the fall
though Christians say that nudity is now wrong because things changed after
the fall. It's body shame and not nudity which is wrong?.
- Good Nudity!
This theological study by Jeff is a result of many hours of prayerful
and careful research in the Bible. It then opened our lives to the good
nudity found in naturism which we enjoy! What we found was not what we
originally were taught or believed. Here is the theological basis for
our involvement in naturism.

403: Forbidden - Naturism
This article originally appeared in (the now defunct) Internet
Underground magazine for June 1997. "403: Forbidden" is (was) a
column devoted to topics that are often taboo in "mainstream" media but
have been able to receive more sympathetic attention on the Web.

Nudity, on the other hand, is often much more convenient and comfortable. Here

it is healthy for the family, it increases metal health, it raises
sexual health, promotes physical health, and more.
Social Nudity and Scholarly Study
Nearly every mother will attest to her toddler's readiness to scamper
about the house and backyard naked. Children feel at ease in the nude
until parents teach them that it's "wrong," "indecent," or "shameful."
Children must also be taught that it is somehow inappropriate to see
their family nude, for such ideas would not come to them naturally.
What shall we tell the children?

naturism is sometimes advisable. How do they instill this into the
kids without giving the wrong impression?
Nudists and Naturists
When it comes to modern
society, there are some subjects that naturally draw people’s attention.
Strangely, it’s not so often that you hear about nudists and naturists,
even though many people are uncomfortable with their practices.

is good for you
For years we have been told to cover up in the sun to cut the risk
of getting skin cancer. But now it seems that a little bit of sunshine
on your body is actually good for you. Studies
have shown that a sensible amount of sun reduces your risk of several
cancers and other serious health conditions.

The purpose of the study was to try and determine whether bra wearing was
in any way connected with the development of breast cancer. The notion that
clothing may affect the inner workings of your body can be difficult to
accept. Yet the researchers were looking at the possible interference of a
basic system of the body by the garments worn.

Woman and Nudism
From my experience, I have found that
women are more reluctant to become nudists then men are. One reason
for this is that women from a very young age are taught to be lady
like and that it is bad to show others bare skin. Women are taught to
be second class and they don't have the same rights as men to bare
their chest in public. Most women think that nudism has something to
do with sex or that it is immoral. Even if they consider it, there are
always many excuses (e.g. "IM TO FAT TO BE NAKED IN FRONT OF PEOPLE").
Well ladies, you were all misinformed!
"So, your partner is
interested in nudism..."!

all who come to Lupin, or other safe and comfortable nude recreation
environments, are winners. They win exhilarating freedom, blissful
relaxation, and solid comfort with their bodies and others.
- A Male Tribute to Lupin Women
Women deserve very special respect from each of us on the
other side of the great gender divide. Surrounded by a body-alienated
culture and burdened by centuries of systematic patriarchy, it is a
wonder that women even consider, much less risk, social nudity with
men. Just a precious few actually brave the experience, despite touted
benefits which must seem almost too good to be true. It takes
self-assurance and true grit.
- A Soul Set Free
To give up my clothing willingly was something I would never have
considered, especially as a lifestyle choice. I thought nudists were the
beautiful people, either already perfect, or wealthy enough to buy it.
What other reason would someone have to go naked in front of others? It
must be a mutual admiration society, right? Wrong!
It is nearly impossible to understand how wholesome nudism is
without experiencing it for yourself.
Woman to Woman - Welcome ladies, by Julie
After only a year as a nudist, my perspective
on what a woman might want to know prior to attending her first nudist
function is that it is completely normal to be scared witless. If it's
her spouse urging her to try nudism, anger is the normal reaction.
Thinking that he is pursuing nudism just to see a lot of naked women
unfortunately does not help her to embrace the idea.
Hopefully, this page will help alleviate any concerns a woman may have
about Social Nudism/Naturism.

Women & Social Nudity: A Letter to Wives from a Nudist Spouse
This article by Pamela Johnson was first published in the nudist magazine Suntan in 1951.
It is just as true today as it was then. This laconic masterpiece addresses many common
concerns women have about social nudism and offers very reasonable reassurance. Woman feel
well understood after reading it; they feel others share their concerns.

Tex just brought up a problem that a lot of men have had with
getting the wife or girl friend to at least try the nudist life
style. I think the main reason that a lot of women are afraid to be

Why Nude Beach & Social Family Nudity
We are born naked. Everyone knows that. But the moment we leave the womb, we are
wrapped in a blanket, and the skin hardly ever sees the light of day again.
For the next 70+ years of life, we wrap our skin in a cocoon of fabric.
