The Top 5 Mistakes Made On Nudist Websites

5 Common Mistakes To Avoid On Nudist Websites It should be no secret that nudists aren’t exactly a tech-savvy group when it comes to using the internet. As we’ve said before, it’s like the mainstream is doing apps and email and social media while modern nudism is still writing letters. Many nudist websites look like Internet fossils that were made during the dial-up days of the internet. They’re a sad mish mosh of ugly colors, patterned backgrounds and 90’s graphics. And on top of all that, they’re often difficult to use or navigate. Here is a guaranteed way to make ... Read more

How Not To Be A Nudist Creep

Nudism Behavior Etiquette and Guide For Men On How To Avoid Being Labeled A Nudist Creep Nudism Behavior Etiquette – Last year, I published a blog about gender and harassment issues in naturism. As a continuation of this topic, I thought we should delve further into nudist behavioral guidelines and how not to be “creepy” in naturist or social nude settings. Can We Define The Term “Creepy”? What does it mean to be “creepy”? There has actually been very little scientific research into this question. But last year a new study was published by researchers at Knox College called “On the nature ... Read more

The Nudism Gender Problem Part 2: Addressing Harassment

Nudism & Gender Issues: Let’s Talk About Safety and Harassment It was good to see that my last article about naturism and single male policies generated a lot of discussion on our website and on social media. It seems like most people actually agreed with us that naturism should be inclusive rather than exclusive. I’d added a poll at the end of my article asking if nudist resorts, clubs, groups, etc should restrict entry to single men in order to have a better gender ratio. Out of over 400 votes, the overwhelming majority – nearly 80% — said “No.” Twelve ... Read more

Nudism, Gender and Single Male Nudist Policies

Nudism and Discrimination of the Single Male Nudist: Yay or Nay? A few months ago on my blog, I talked about “why naturism has a lady problem.” The problem being that women don’t show up to many nudist places and events in nearly the same numbers as men. I’ve observed that men (of all ages and sexual orientations) are more comfortable being naked in social settings. They are almost guaranteed to show up at any publicized nudist or naked affair. (It’s different in other countries but I’m talking only about the U.S. here.) I’ve come up with several reasons for ... Read more

Nudist Women And Why Does Naturism Have a Lady Problem?

Why Aren’t There More Women In Nudism / Naturism Today? It’s no secret to most in the naturist community that naturism has a lady problem. While men tend to flock far more easily to social nudity, as though it’s their life calling to be naked, women tend to be far less open to the experience. While it does vary from place to place, in the U.S., men tend to outnumber women at naturist events, nudist resorts and clubs.
