Young Nudists and Young Adults Who Practice Naturism

Learn about the young people who practice nudism and naturism today, and about nudist or naked events geared towards younger aged adult naturists.

Is nudism only practiced by an older demographic? It can certainly seem this way, especially when stories repeatedly appear in the media about the lack of young nudists around. But this is actually untrue. In fact there are many young adults in their teens, 20’s and 30’s who embrace naturism.

Established nudist resorts and clubs in the U.S. tend to have an older crowd, but young people can be found at public nude beaches, indoor naked parties, body painting events and other social nude places.

How To Meet Nudists and Naturists In Your Area

Aside From Nudist Clubs, How Do I Meet Local Nudists? In the course of running a nudism organization and publishing nudist resources, I’ve heard this question quite often. This isn’t surprising. There are nudists spread out all over the U.S., and not everyone has a nude beach or nudist resort or club nearby. Even if they do, some can’t afford to join their local nudist club or don’t have the transportation to get there. So, how else does one meet other local nudist people or nude-friendly groups? We have some ideas to share for connecting with fellow nudists both online ... Read more
