anyone want to teach their children their bodies are
disgusting, unacceptable and offensive to even look
at? Why would anyone want to teach their children self

their children by having a prejudicial bigotry against

children and Naturism?
of parents would run around naked in front of
We think the best parents in the world are
those that have an open life with their
children. Parents should be able to give their
children the right to review the life issues
by themselves. As parents, all that we can
truly do is to give the hints and ideas that
we would like to have our children carry on.
In this case, it's not being afraid to be
nude. It's also teaching them to stand up for
what they believe in. Children are natural
nudists. We're born nude and it's good.
There's nothing wrong with that. It's only
after people turn it into an evil thing that
children grow up believing that it's dirty,
nasty, awful and forbidden. Then, they usually
end up in other trouble up to and including
teen pregnancy, eating disorders, and many
other issues surrounding body acceptance.
Sure, it happens in the nudist community too,
but at least we will know that we gave our
children a total and honest view of the human
body and all of it's workings.
Nudist parents are NOT out to corrupt the
minds of their children. If anything, we're
here to give them a chance to see life at its
fullest without the outside pressure to
conform to society. It's good to be a part of
society, but when society begins to control
your moves and decisions there is a problem.
In the US, we're supposed to have the right to
decide on what we believe. But we are forced
into obeying many laws that were passed by
people based on their religious reservations
and beliefs. It doesn't take a rocket
scientist to see where the problem is.
frighten you to have naked people around your
No. Just because people are nude doesn't
make them any more of a threat than anyone
else. Nudist parents take the same, if not
more, vigilance when it comes to protecting
their kids. As parents, our kids are our
primary concern. We must take the appropriate
precautions towards our children and their
safety, clothed or not. Just because they're
naked in front of us doesn't place them at any
higher risk than if they wore clothes all the
about your kids seeing the opposite sex naked?
It's not a bad thing. The kids will grow up
understanding what the natural human body is
and how it fits into nature. They'll know that
boys & girls are different and why. It won't
be this hidden thing that they don't discuss.
Since they will have a better understanding of
each other's bodies, they'll be less tempted
to engage in pre-marital or promiscuous
behavior. They won't have the ideas the media
portrays that simple nudity is a pre-cursor to
sexual behavior. The human body is a beautiful
thing that should be taught, not hidden as if
it's dirty or bad.
society and what it says about your lifestyle
and your children?
Society judges many people inappropriately.
Being a nudist may be a situation that could
be included. It is the parent's right to raise
their children in the way that they see fit.
As long as they don't abuse or misuse the
kids, it's a non-issue. The problem with
society and nudism isn't nudity itself, it's
the portrayal of simple nudity meaning sex. As
previously explained, it has nothing to do
with sex. It is a choice to be nude because
it's more comfortable. The children aren't
forced into nudity, they do it on their own
free will. Babies pull their diapers off and
can't stand to have them put back on.
Toddler's get nude and then ask if it's ok.
Well, for us it is ok for them to be nude.
There's no reason for them to hide what is
beautiful. They are taught that there are
times when it's appropriate to be nude as well
as times when it's not. Our society is
backwards in that people will look at nude art
and make an exception. But if you allow your
children to swim or play in the nude, they act
like it's the worst thing you could do.
just not right for the kids to be nude!
Why isn't it? Is it because that is what
you believe? Because you think that nudity is
bad? Because of your religious beliefs? We
suggest for everyone to study their belief
system and decide for themselves. There are
nudists from all walks of life and all
illegal to have your kids naked?
No. It's only illegal if you abuse or
misuse your children for the purposes of
promoting sex or sexual content. It's also
illegal if you allow them to run in public
where other people can see and be offended by
them. Allowing them to run at a nudist
campground is legal as it's private land and
everyone is there for the same reason.
Allowing them to run down your street nude is
illegal because it's public and at least one
of your neighbors is going to take offense to
it. Allowing them to be nude in their own
house is perfectly legal as long as you take
precautions to make sure your neighbors don't
Note: We're not providing legal
advice....we're simply stating why we
participate in nudism. Laws vary from state to
state. Remember to check your local ordinances
as well. Unfortunately most laws were enacted
by people who thought they were doing a good
thing based on their religion. The problem
with this is that it imposes on other people's
The effects of nudity and kids has been
studied. There are many different theories and
ideas about it. Most state that there are
benefits to being open about nudity with your
children. I'm sure we can all see some of the
benefits. Most of the problems people have
with it is the fear that something is wrong
because their religion said so. A lot of these
people quote scriptures taken out of context
and proclaim it as the law. You can not tell
someone that they're wrong because you feel
they are. We've seen our children in the
nudist environment and they love it. Sex isn't
a topic on their minds and it probably won't
be for many years to come. At least we know
that they'll understand we're all different
and we all have personal choices and decisions
to make during our lives. As the years go by
and we all get older, it seems like the US
gets more uptight about things every year. We
can only hope that things change for the
better. At least we know it's our right to
raise our children how we see fit....we can
only hope that our foul legal and judicial
system sees it the same way in the future.
"A child who has never been allowed
to see his parents, brothers and sisters naked
sees nudity as something shocking."
- Dr. Helga Fleishhauer Hardt (SHOW ME, New
York: St. Martin's Press, 1975)
"Being natural and matter-of-fact about
nudity prevents your children from developing
an attitude of shame or disgust about the
human body. If parents are very secretive
about their bodies and go to great lengths to
prevent their children from ever seeing a
buttock or breast, children will wonder what
is so unusual, and even alarming, about human
nudity." - Dr. Lee Salk, Psychiatrist
(McCall's Magazine, June, 1976)
" ... with very young children accustomed
from the beginning to nudity in themselves and
their parents, a great deal is taken for
granted, and it doesn't seem to be much of an
issue to them. What nudity does is make it
easy for children to become absolutely certain
about just how men and women are made. This
knowledge is of great importance in assuring
the child of his or her own correct gender.
The differences in body states and sizes - and
in body organs - can then be taken for granted
and will provide an accurate image of how they
themselves, or the opposite sex, will look
when grown up. Children whose parents feel at
ease in such natural events as stepping out of
the shower, toweling, and walking back to
their room to dress are fortunate." - Dr.
Calderone, MD (The Family Book About
Sexuality, New York: Harper & Row, 1981)
Short Reading About Nudist Culture
By the time of my next nudist experience I was married. We decided to try one of the nudist camp sites in France. After much scouring of the travel pages in H&E and British Naturism, we decided upon Arnaoutchot on the Atlantic coast located between Bordeaux and Birritz. That whole length of coast line is wild beach, sand dunes and pine forest. Arna is carved out of the forest just behind the beach and sand dunes. It has shops, restaurants, swimming pools, all nude. The camping area is large and split into smaller areas with most of the pitches being separated from each other by undergrowth and bushes. There is no shortage of wild life, in particular red squirels, woodpeckers, etc. The site is excellent, and the beach is magnificent. It is just mile after mile of wide wild fairly empty sandy beach together with the impressive Atlantic waves.
The only problem with Arna is that the weather can be adversly influenced by the Atlantic and the nearby Pyrenees, so it gets more than its fair share of cloudy and wet days. I just love being naked, preferably out doors. It does not have to be on a beach. As I mentioned above, one of my other great loves is walking (preferably nude). So when the weather was unsettled at Arna we would head for the deserted footpaths of the Pyrenees which are just over an hours’ drive away.
Having been most impressed with the Pyrenees, the following year we decided to try the eastern end, with the hope of getting even better weather. Again after much leafing through the holiday advertisements in old editions of H&E we headed for La Clapere. It is located in the foothills of the western Pyrenees very close to the Spanish border. It has a charming camp site, with a swimming pool, shop restaurant. It has a mountain stream running through the centre of the site, but the water was far too cold for me.
The nearest largish mountain is the Canigou. We were there in mid June, just after a cold snap. When we arrived, the top third of the Canigou was covered in snow! By the time we had the tent up the sun was shining and it was wall-to-wall sun for the rest of our holiday. The thought of walking nude in the snow was a tantalising prospect, but we never quite made it. Our favourite beach at the mouth of the River Tech was about a 30 min drive away. You can just see the snow on the Canigou if you use your imagination. The walks in the hills around La Clapere are magnificent. Some of the paths follow the French / Spanish border. One day we were engulfed by clouds of migrating butterflies wafting along with the southerly breeze. Can you spot the butterfly?
The restaurant at the camp site was superb. Once a week there was a Paella evening. You can imagine the format, wine, food, more wine, more food, dancing, etc. Not being one to wear clothes at a nudist campsite, I was of course, nude, but as the tempreature was slightly cool, I was the only naked one in the group of 20 or so, most of whom were Dutch. I am not an enthusiastic dancer at the best of times, but my wife dragged me onto the dance floor. Nude dancing, with all your bits bouncing up and down is great fun. I liked it, so did my bouncy bits! One dance led to another, and another. Then came the slow dance. We embarrassed each other, quite respectably, and smooched. The wine had got to my bouncy bits. It had stopped bouncing and was starting to move upwards. It does not take much to get it excited at the best of times, and this was no exception. I just about managed to gain some semblance of control by the end of the dance, and managed to coyly get back to my seat pretending nothing had happened. My re-control of the situation was not total and there were a few knowing smiles from some of the Dutch girls.
A couple of glasses of wine later and things were totally under control again when I got dragged to the dance floor again. I was bouncing well, then came the slow dance. It started to grow again, but what the heck I thought, don’t fight it. The dance had only just started, they always played at least two slow pieces together, so I gave wicked willie his head, and did not worry about it (as if I would). One of the Dutch girls then decided to turn the dance into an ‘excuse me’. My wife was whisked away from me and I was given an unsuspecting girl who had just been broken up in a similar fashion. Protesting was pointless. What can you do or say when there you are dancing naked with a complete stranger with a stiff penis. Well I continued dancing. I smiled, so did she, I apologised, but I don’t think that she understood English. It is surprising just how fast a penis can deflate under such circumstances. The dance soon ended, I smiled again, said thank you, and returned to my seat. I never could work out whether the ‘excuse me’ was just coincidence, or whether I was set up! At the end of the day, it was a good laugh, no harm was done and I suspect that I was the most (although not very) embarrassed person on the dance floor.
Closer to home, my wife and I recently went to one of Eureka's regular Saturday night parties. It was actually to celebrate my 50th birthday. I had though long and hard about what to to on such a occaision. The idea of spending the evening in my birthday suit at a dance rather appealed, so off we went. We had never been to one before and had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be a Valentines Day party, and the place was heaving, absolutely packed. I've never seen so many naked bodies in such a relatively small space.
The music seemed to be 15 mins bop, 15 mins reggay and 15 mins slow dance. It was the 15 mins slow dance that appealed to me most. Although we have been married 12 years and spend lots of time naked together, we have never danced naked before, especially in a smooch.
My wicked willie got carried away, but thats no great surprise, but sandwiched between our naked bodies, I thought that few people would notice. Also, what was no surprise, was that my penis was not the only one enjoying the situation. Without too close an inspection, there were penises in all states of stiffness all over the dance floor. The end of the dance was quite amusing as the owners of these stiff penises had to allow an extra six inches or so in front of them when returning to their seats. But as it was Eureka, everybody just smiled and carried on as before.

The Naturist materials on this nudist Website 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 picture and video galleries are widely promoted in all of United States, Canada, Asia, Europe, South America, Canada, Australia and Africa amond most major countries. The only exception may be countries where nudity of any kind is banned, i.e. Iraq, Syria, and Iran.
