digger-one: What could be more natural than a…


What could be more natural than a naked walk through the park on a warm sunny day? Does wearing clothes for something like this make sense? #BeYou #benatural #justsaynotoclothes #freeyourbody #benakedandfree #noclothes #nudeisnormal #livelifenaked #gonude #legalizepublicnudity

Open nudity is a thing humanity was promised at one point in it’s history IF we behaved a certain way, IF we believed a certain thing, and IF we as a creation were [initially] capable of meeting the expectations of our creator; according to one philosophy. Well, is this a bit like expecting a newborn baby to walk, talk and feed itself shortly after birth? That is a huge question in my mind, the one that only imperfection, not temptation, is what allowed humanity to choose wrong, to disobey or follow a less desirable path out of the Garden we initially started out it. And if this is the case, are we to blame for the imperfection of our creation? Has not humanity paid a “price” for being led astray for long enough? ~ Obviously this is a philosophical question, an exercise in thought, or the seed of discussion meant to inspire further dialog, because I am only a man of modest education, not a scholar of religion with years of extensive training.

The purpose of PhD persons is to expand or extend knowledge beyond what is already known, confirmed, verified and fully adopted, and yet we ( [humanity] ) seem not to be extending this area of knowledge, not pursuing the whys and wherefores of ONE TYPE of persistent existence. We accept one version of an established philosophy as the limiting way, or limited way, we are permitted to exist, except for the small percentage of people choosing to “explore” social nudity!

Ask ourselves: What form of peace might society be capable of achieving IF we treated each other with the respect and appreciation G-d originally intended? Are we ready to approach life this way? Are we mature enough now? Do we treat our babies with the care and respect of a creator and give them every advantage possible?

If we did, I suggest none would be starving in distant lands, none would drown while their families fled violence, and NONE would be randomly killed in “justifiable” bombings, so maybe we do NOT deserve freedom yet! Maybe we are not as evolved as we think, because such sadness exists and is accepted in the world. Maybe we are not ready to return to the Garden, a garden, any garden… ??

Truly, social nudity is about fun, joy, enjoyment, acceptance, love of self, love of each other, kindness, heart, and the realization “all the trappings of clothed society” do more to differentiate us from each other than unify (or unite) us. Through simple, totally honest nudity, we are of one planet, one species, flagless, borderless and “clothesless”!

Nudism is a thing you choose to do, and there is no “special” behavior required, not more than normal, BUT the youngest participants will ask some questions and honestly, these are questions we should be prepared to answer ANYWAY!

(yes, even fully clothed parents need to answer, coach and mentor the best behaviors, so no difference there!)

Even as a test, everyday, anyone can imagine their world clothing-free! At the coffee shop in the morning, or breakfast, while driving in traffic (imagine any or every other driver nude!), then at work we can do it too! It should not be considered a “pervy” thing to only imagine people simply nude in a variety of situations, because it exercises the mind, conditions the psyche, and will bring us closer to the people in our lives! ~ Yes, I said it! In my mind imagining others enjoying nudity the way I enjoy nudity leads me to feel closer to them because accepting nudity on their own WOULD mean they accept me completely!

Some of the people we imagine nude may be imagining us nude too! Imagine that! ~ How many other people we already know have skinny-dipped? How many undress the minute they arrive home? How many love remaining nude after a shower, for a few minutes, an hour, or as long as possible until “forced” into the clothing much of society expects us to wear?

How did we arrive at this point in our cultural evolution? Recognizing more things are unhealthy for us, but enjoying them anyway, and here is what I mean: Eating healthy? We often don’t. Getting exercise? We often don’t. Spending time with friends? We often don’t because it is so much easier and less demanding to relax, or chill, to turn on television or our laptops AND do something without pressure, without expectations. Sure, staying in is easier, but does it lead to MANY people finding their own way in isolation? Does staying in our “privileged spaces” (apartments, townhomes, condos and homes) and enjoying a thing such as simple nudity ACTUALLY lead to greater, more frequent separation between people – only because many shy away from admitting they also love being nude?!? Could it be?

Possibly! I believe there are many people enjoying “The Life of Eden” in their own private spaces, really loving it, and yet still not quite ready to discuss something SO AMAZINGLY SIMPLE AND JOYFUL amongst ourselves every day! We can talk life, or work, entertainment, politics, religion or even gun ownership and abuse, yet “the nudity” still remains a common love WE may find difficult to discuss. Why is that? Is it true? Is it only a north American thing? SHOULD I be visiting spas and saunas more often in order to “find” people of like mind? Or, or, do we simply need a “Naturist” pin to wear upon our clothing all those other times we are forced to be dressed? How about a pin with “AMASN” for “Ask Me About Social Nudity” and then we could say, ‘I would be happy to tell you what AMASN is, but we need a quiet moment away from here to do it" or “Well, it is not a work-related topic, but I like you, think you are a smart and caring person, so we should talk about AMASN after work”. After school, after church, or when we are done shopping! Do you have time for SOMETHING good, different and totally hopeful?

It may be time to EXPLORE the scenarios where we CAN find an opportunity to “talk nudism” and be completely serious about it, more than we already do!

To support Naturism, Clothing-optionality, Nudism and Body Acceptance, each of us must select content with meaning and follow a theme (or idea). However, it depends on why tumblr is meaningful in your mind, if it is only a Social Media platform of fun and entertainment, tumbl whatever content you wish – have at it, go bonkers! Finally though, if the purpose of your presence is to discuss, educate, enlighten, guide or lead, follow a well-defined “Theme” and ultimately achieve a greater understanding of social nudity, then WELCOME! … Greetings, because the huge challenge is there are many, many people here simply enjoying the enormous variety of image, written and graphical content, for fun! Either choice is fine on tumblr, we live in a mostly free world, and the greatest among these freedoms is choosing how our time is spent, what to promote for pay, and what to promote for free! Free, uncompensated nudity, not “pay for play” nudity is why I am here.

If you find your tumblr Blocked from mine this does not mean I found it to be without merit, only that most of the postings did not mesh with my “Pro” nudity theme OR your tumblr was distracting with hyper-realism, polished sexiness, sexual disrespect or sexually tinged violence, and {frankly} anyone might have their attention pulled towards those hyper-marketed “boink fests”.





WARNING: This is an OPINION. Opinions are like belly buttons- everybody has at least one 😉

First, some background…

I have been a nudist for quite literally DECADES. In fact, I have been a nudist for my whole life so far. No, this doesn’t mean I am the “authority” on nudism. It does however mean I have allot of experience with the lifestyle in general.

There are as many types of nudism out there as there are nudists. Every nudist (and textile for that matter) views nudism through the lens of their own life experiences. Thus, what is nudist and what is pornographic is judged differently by many.

When I started being a nudist, I was a toddler. Yep- a toddler. Once the toilet training was done, the diapers came off and I was allowed to run around nude whenever it was warm enough and the situation was “right”; i.e.- we were at home, etc. My biological parents were NOT actually nudists. They simply believed (and this was at a time when) letting a little kid run around nude was no big deal. Trouble was, I rebelled when it came time to start wearing clothes. Sure, they slept nude, and would walk to and from the bathroom nude, but that was it.

I had seen my parents nude. No big deal. I had bathed and showered with my dad like most little kids of that era. No big deal. I never saw them acting in an erotic or sexual manner.

As time went by, I discovered that I could go skinny dipping in the creek behind where we lived. I ran across some other kids that I went to school with while they were skinny dipping back there. Turns out some of them came from nudist families. Thus, I started hanging out with them at their homes. And believe it or not, I didn’t witness any erotic or sexual behavior there either. I liked hanging out with them not because I got to see anyone nude, but because I got to be nude with other nude people, a natural state that even at a young age I recognized as inherently good and normal.

As I got a little older, around 8 or 9 years old, those families would include me in family activities, parties, and on trips to the beach. The only thing was we didn’t tell my parents that we were going to Sandy Hook instead of Seaside Heights. All the times we went somewhere, I never saw anyone acting sexual.

There was a decency involved that comes from character, not clothing.

While we kids were tearing around in the pool, the surf, the playgrounds, etc., the adults were usually keeping a close eye on us while they were sun tanning, grilling, chatting, and sometimes drinking at a social level. I don’t recall seeing anything at all questionable. Nobody sporting an erection, no obvious displays, spread legs, etc.

By now, my biological dad was out of the picture and my biological mom had decided I needed privacy, so she went to great pains to NOT see me nude. Thus, the fact that my butt was a little more tan than it should have been didn’t get noticed. If it did, she never said anything. I still played outside most of the time in short pants so I still had the typical tan line of a textile anyway.

Through these experiences I grew to understand that being nude is our most natural state. That it is not sexual in nature at all. By being surrounded with nude people of all ages, I saw that it is simply “us”, the way we are designed to be when we don’t require protection from the environment (heat, cold, abrasion, etc.). I learned that this is how we have lived for millennia.

Sure, we cover up when we need to protect our bodies, but otherwise we tended to disrobe in day to day life. Families saw each other nude constantly. People worked nude out in the fields, on fishing boats, around the cottage, in all manner of work where they didn’t need protective gear (i.e.- clothing). Sex simply wasn’t involved. Seeing another person nude wasn’t a prelude to arousal or sexual activity. It was actually a mundane, commonplace thing.

As a result, nudism and sex were never inherently related.

Fast forward to my teens. I was still skinny dipping and sunbathing with friends (albeit from a different school) and again, it was just us being natural. For us, it wasn’t automatically a sexual thing. Sure, we were usually nude when engaging in sex, but simply being nude wasn’t arousing or asking for it.

Fast forward again to my 20’s. I was a member of aanr (not anymore though!) and was disappointed at the number of resorts that barred me from visiting simply because I was a single male. They lumped me into a category that they believed was full of guys who were into nudism as a means of sexual shopping and satisfaction. I wasn’t and still am not one of them.

Why were single guys being labeled and treated this way? Because of the actions of a few of them! Because some guys saw nudism as a sexually based lifestyle and wormed their way into nudist resorts and then behaved in an unacceptably sexual manner, the majority of single guys were punished. Resorts typically either excluded them completely or instituted a limit on the number of single males that could attend at any given time. Those misbehaving single guys created a bad image, a stereotype that was applied to all. This meant that genuine nudists who happened to be male and single were being punished for the gross misbehavior of others. They were denied the opportunity to engage in social nudism as a preventative safety measure.

God created us nude. It was not designed to cause arousal. In fact, we were nude long before there was a need to have sex for procreation. Unless we need protection from the environment, we are actually meant to be nude. Clothing interferes with some of the human body’s systems and actually can be detrimental to health- physical, mental, and even spiritual. Nudity was, and should still be, commonplace. There is simply nothing inherently sexual about it.

I honestly believe that the false modesty of clothing is the greatest cause of people viewing simple nudity as arousing. When genitals are only exposed FOR sex, then they come to automatically represent sex WHENEVER they are in view. If genuine nudism was more common, I believe the porn industry would fail or come close to it!

Now… about those “sex-positive” nudist blogs-

The fact of the matter is nudism did not come from sex.

Nudism and sex are NOT inherently related to each other.

Yes, sex is natural. However it has no place in nudism. There are many things that are natural that have no place in nudism.

“Sex-positive” tends to be code for porn.

When I run across the “sex-positive” blogs, they always include eroticism/pornography and use the same argument to justify it; i.e.- sex (or erections) = natural and thus should be celebrated and included. Uh… No.

They use this “natural” argument as a means of trying to bring some legitimacy to their position. They try to pass blatantly sexual behavior off as simple nudism.  When they are called out on this, they defend their position by claiming anyone who doesn’t like to include sex in nudism is denying how natural it is. This allows them to call themselves “nudists” and label their behavior as “nudism” instead of calling it what it really is – pornography, swinging, exhibitionism, voyeurism, etc.

So what’s the problem?

They are falsely equating nudism with sex. They are linking them together and reinforcing that link.

When a solitary nudist or a textile interested in nudism see’s that, he or she may get the impression that a majority of nudists think that way. This may cause them to never reach out to other nudists, never visit a resort, and even feel ashamed of their own nudity even though it is not arousing for them.

When a textile see’s these “sex-positive” blogs, it just reinforces their assumption that nudists are perverts and nudism is all about sex, swinging, orgies, partner swapping, etc.

THAT in turn makes it more difficult for real nudism to be accepted. It also lends itself to another problem, and that is the exclusion of family. When one presents nudism as being a sexual lifestyle, one is also creating an atmosphere that requires precluding nudist families. As a result, more and more people see nudity of any kind as automatically sexual.

This in turn shapes laws, corporate policies, etc. Just look at tumblr- more porn than one could ever view in a single lifetime and those blogs remain. But when genuine nudists try to promote family friendly non sexual nudism, they get banned. Why? Because tumblr either sees nudism as an “adults only” sexual lifestyle or they don’t want the hassle of constantly having to defend non-pornographic nude images. And it’s not just tumblr. Most websites that allow any kind of nude images have similar policies.

Why did this happen? Because we, the real nudists of the world, have allowed the perverts to sully the image of nudism with sex and pornography. Because we sat silently by while they taught the world that nudity is all about sex, not about simply being normal and natural. We let them define nudism because we didn’t want to get into a debate. We didn’t want to get involved. We figured to let them have their perverted part of the internet and simply exclude them from our genuine nudism and nudist sites. That has backfired in the worst way.


The same way the gross misbehavior of some single male nudists backfired on all single male nudists. Nudism is being viewed more and more frequently as a sexually based lifestyle. Thus, this erroneous stereotype is being applied more and more often to ALL nudists. Nudism is being linked to sex, and the more “sex-positive” junk that is out there to be seen, the stronger that link becomes. This results in more and more restrictions upon nudism.

These “sex-positive” folks are creating a bad image, a stereotype that is being applied to all of us.

We are being punished for the actions of others who falsely claim their sexual behavior is representative of nudism. We are allowing this to happen.

Step up.

Assert the principals of genuine nudism.

Engage in being an active defender of genuine nudism… or sit back and watch it disappear. Sit back and allow you and your nudist family, friends, etc. be labeled as perverts when in reality you are far from that.

Don’t be an entitled lazy nudist and expect everyone else to do it for you. Step up and help… many hands make light work!

Please leave the above text intact if you reblog. It’s the right thing to do 🙂

I am only new to nudism    about 2 years, in fact………. love the lifestyle…….wish I had been brought up as a nudist……….. agree wholeheartedly with your commentary…….. hope my blog reflects the values you illuminate,    tolerance, acceptance, respect, separation of nudity from sex  exhibitionism lewdness porn etc…….. as you said, everything we do as genuine nudists reflect for good or ill on the lifestyle we love and can either attract new people to our ranks or repel those who seek to join us

Thank you for writing this article. We do need more positive representation.

Definitely a thoughtful, first person account on learning about simple nudity. It is not difficult to describe these moments of maturity and the accounts need not be lengthy, but I see a tremendous value in supporting the social nudity, social nudist, and Home nudist beliefs through validation! Plus, the only way to encourage a non-purient view of the young human body may be to “give” another set of beliefs to hold onto instead. Presently it seems many characters in the news have SELF-SERVING beliefs and no others (except secrecy and pay-for-silence, or hush money), so let us Naturists and Nudist continue championing our set or values and beliefs!!

oregonnaturist: racusophy: Life as it should …



Life as it should be


Pause to reflect. There can be many more beautiful, respectful, inclusive moments in life and we can see them, we DO experience them. All around us when life’s basic rules include openness and body acceptance, rather than covering and hiding everything! The recent disaster of the Olympic gymnastics doctor comes to mind as a unfathomable reality of closeted and clothed living! I suggest if those young people knew about their bodies, better understood personal boundaries AND their parents also communicated Body Awareness values to these (hundreds of) children, the issue might have been recognized years earlier! Of course, there is no blame to be placed on the parents now because they were simply operating within the “framework” they knew and accepted; educators and school or organization administrators too! This was likely a case of situational blindness and a over reliance on preconceived notions, ideas of what an educated and credentialed “professional” doctor SHOULD be, and a “blindness” towards what he was doing. We all have doctors who have seen everything, touched everything, and with whom we discuss the most personal and intimate subjects from delayed physical development to reproduction, transgenderism, mental issues and intimate performance details. The “Do no harm” profession could be and maybe should be the one where people might even express an attraction toward Nudism, because the skin is exposed and sunlight may be damaging, but also because outdoor time means the eyes get more sun and the genitals – the most delicate, least conditioned skin tissue – will be exposed to sun, wind, surfaces, etc.

This tumblr entry is a bit long, but I hope parts of it resonate with individuals, young couples planning families, families and possibly even healthcare professionals within or outside the social Nudist environment.
