My Neighbor the Closet Naturist

(guest nudist site by annon) – For me, social nudity will be naked in a public setting. This can go without saying by leaving your windows open. Unfortunately, I don’t enjoy people are looking in my windows so I like to remain clothed when doing sofor now.
Now, I went for a walk with my neighbor and his dog to escape your house. Yes, one thing I ‘ve learned while handling an online network is really to get out more. Virtual relationships do not always take a nice job on your brain in relations to your own sanity. So, I began going for walks with my neighbor to walk his dog around the neighborhood.
While doing this, I find it enjoyable to talk about what do on our social network. Even though my neighbor is a closet naturist, aka: homebody and has been to a nudist beach once while traveling, social naturism isn’t the thing for him. Little did he know until now that he’s actually a semi-social naturist. Here is the story
Close to two months past, I moved into this new place along the shore of LA County and learned there was space behind my house that was government property which belonged to the Gas Company. For the longest time I needed to scout it out, yet was hesitant to do so because my man was intimidated by private property signs. Obviously, the extent of my ventures were restricted to gazing up this never-ending hill and nothing further. I ‘d no clue what was behind my house. Today was the day of the huge discovery with my sidekick, anonymous and his dog Pebbles.
I’m A Closet Naturist !
We walked around the back street that leads to the road of the lot behind my house. As we walked along this pathway, we learned there was a huge open lot of acreage that was scarcely ever utilized by local residents and government employees. Additionally, we discovered there was a perfect view from this lot straight into my neighbor’s living room. Naturally, he had not been too thrilled because he always leaves his window open and appreciates the “privacy” of being at home nude. This may changeperhaps not.
My neighbor has come across a decision he has to make now. He can change his life around his neighborhood environment by keeping his window shut so he can stay a homebody, or he can continue doing what makes him happy and leave his window open as a semi-social naturist. Either or we shall see what choice he determines to makes as it is an noticeable one.
What are your thoughts. are you a semi-social naturist, or a homebody as it pertains to the seclusion of your own home?
Now..what just are semi-social naturists you say? It really is the act of communicating to another human being indirectly through body language. This can be done without audio. Since we live so close to one another, we are always expressing ourselves on way or the other without even knowing who’s tuning in. If this still will not make sensewell what else can I say, I just made it up; however, it is an actual story.
It’s possible for you to feel free to look up other naturist terms in our nudist dictionary!

Update On Beverly B. Price, Bill Schroer and the AANR Nudist Club Ratings

This post is by Jordan Blum
Did Beverly Fire Bill Over The Problem Of AANR Naturist Clubs Evaluations?
For people who have been following the story we wrote about: Beverly B. Price president of AANR Fired Bill Schroer – WTF?!?! Here is what we have been able to figure out so far.
Allow me to begin by noting that I’ve repeatedly attempted to get some advice from the American Association For Nude Recreation – AANR directly about why Beverly Price fired Bill Schroer. Sadly, AANR had issued a gag order for all those involved so none of them were willing to talk if you ask me about it. But from discussions I’ve had and after reading their recent website update, here is what I could piece together.
The fundamental facts have not changed. Beverly Price did fire Bill, and after realizing that she didn’t have the power to fire him, AANR called a board meeting to vote on the issue (that’s the reverse sequence of how it should have happened, which is in breach of the AANR bylaws). The vote, from what I understand was not unanimous – 10 people voted in favor of Bill’s conclusion while 4 voted against .
AANR hasn’t explained why he was let go. Many people have alluded to the fact that it was because Bill was recommending for the inclusion of lifestyle and swinger clubs into the AANR network. Seeing as how AANR is the credible voice for “Nude Recreation,” I could see how adding lifestyle clubs would sound right. But that’s really a false statement!
Bill only advocated for a rating system. The issue of lifestyle clubs becoming AANR-affiliated was beyond the range of his recommendation. In effect what was promised – that he was recommending for the admission of lifestyle clubs – is bogus. Bill was only developing these to the extent that the board could make an informed decision. He took no unilateral decisions on any of this.
What Bill proposed was a rating system for nudist resorts and naturist clubs. The naturist club rating system could be compared to the Motion Picture Association of America film rating system. I ‘ll give you an overall case of how that might work.
Nudist Organizations
A rating system would be in place for clubs according to the amount of adult activity present at that club.
AANR naturist clubs like Rock Lodge and Juniper Woods would get an equal rating of “G” (as in kid-friendly and for everyone).
Other AANR naturist clubs that may have more of a lifestyle / swinger existence, but where no sexual behaviour really occurs out in the open would function as the equivalent of an “R” or “PG13.”
The last AANR naturist clubs rating category, the “NC17” or “X” evaluation, would be set aside for the newly added lifestyle category. Those would be clubs like Caliente or possibly Hedonism.
The thought behind the development of an AANR naturist clubs rating system would not be to urge for more sex at naturist clubs. The idea would be to have the ability to align the expectations of prospective visitors with the reality of what that club actually offers. While most nightclubs claim they’re “family-friendly,” the reality is they may not be.
Again, it’s all speculation, but it appears like Beverly and Bill failed to see eye to eye on this particular point. This was more than likely what resulted in her decision to fire him.
This brings up two interesting points about the way in which this whole issue has been handled.
A – Does everyone have to agree 100% with the AANR president if they would care to keep their jobs? In my book, all organizations need to be amenable to new ideas. The dismissal of Bill, if the preceding is actually right, is an indicator when you might have thoughts which may be considered “out of the box,” then AANR will get rid of you fast!
Apparently, AANR’s amounts have been decreasing rapidly so one would think that they’d be enthusiastic to hear new thoughts and approaches. But as we understand all too well, that is not the MO of AANR – it is AANR’s way or the highway (which explains why they have not evolved or adjusted to the changes in society).
B – Most organizations that I know of would issue an official statement when a high ranking exec is let go. This see-through strategy is crucial if the organization needs the support of its members.
People support organizations (not merely nudist organizations) because they believe in what they do. So to all the AANR members – Why aren’t you calling, e-mailing or doing whatever you can to get to the bottom of this? You should also be requiring that AANR tell you just what they can be doing and why.
This can be your right as a dues-paying member – you should be aware of how AANR is spending your hard-earned cash.
(Full disclosure – this doesn’t apply to me personally as I’ve not been an AANR member for the last couple of years).
So, in final, please comment below! Let me know your thoughts on any or all of the following:
Do you agree with the demand to implement a rating system for AANR nudist clubs?
Would you agree that Bill should have been let go? If so, then why? If not, then why?
If you are paying dues as an associate of AANR, do you understand what AANR is especially doing with your money?
If you have any insight or understand something I do not, then please let me know!
If I was mistaken in anyhow about the facts – I want to know! (I ‘m just going based on what I could find out and couldn’t get Beverly to give beach oops ).
Please be aware the opinions and views expressed above are solely my own and tend not to reflect the official views or position of Young Naturists & Nudists America FKK. Any issues you may have with regards to this post should be directed at me personally and not at FKK – Thank you.

Cindy Gregory’s Letter To The Board Of AANR – The American Association For Nude Recreation

This is the complete and unedited letter which Glyn, owner of Lupin Lodge, read to the American Association For Nude Recreation – AANR board in 2011, prior to AANR removing Lupin from its network. To find out more with this, read Jordan’s post: “Why Did AANR Remove Lupin Lodge?”
Cindy’s Letter To: The American Association For Nude Recreation AANR
“I ‘m a resident staff member at Lupin and have been so for the past five years. As a single woman, I have always felt totally safe here, in regard to my physical security in addition to feeling safe to express myself in an atmosphere of body approval. This really is among the reasons I remain at Lupin, along with the joy of living in this kind of lovely place, and living in a community of like minded independence fans.
As the Special Event Hostess, when we were approached by both of these groups, I was quite happy that they were interested in Lupin due to their organizations’ activities. During the interview process, I discovered these groups provide an outlet for self expression which is in keeping with Lupin’s standards of behavior, I.e.This club’s membership, staff and management support the right of each man, woman and (particularly) child to some comfortable, clothes-free encounter. While our intention is not to forbid mutually okay, tender gestures within person relationships nor to govern the private acts of consenting adults, sexual harassment will not be born at Lupin.
Both these groups have rules for their participants additionally. In speaking with the leaders, they were totally understanding of our rules, especially regarding the company policy of any sexual activity occurring in private. Many of nudist free have children also, and understand that children live here in our community, and that we’re exceptionally protective of what they might see.
I was present with the Fox Hunt group during the whole day and evening of actions both times they came to Lupin. I can attest to the fact that NONE of Lupin’s rules were broken during their stay. The hunt itself occurred on the upper open space of our property. Signs were clearly posted regarding no photography, and a private occasion was taking place. As far as I could see, no one outside of the group was present, and if they’d been they would have seen adults dressed as creatures playing what looked like a masquerade hide and seek game. After the hunts, many of the participants took off their costumes and enjoyed the hot tub and pool in the nude. The group met later in the solitude of NuDome for the remainder of their social activity. There were signs posted outside of NuDome signaling there was a private occasion inside, just like we use for some other group which arrives to Lupin. As a side note, Lupin members held a dance that evening in our clubhouse. The fox from the hunt, who was dressed in his Disney like costume danced with many of our members who thought it was so much fun to dance with this type of cunning fox! The group fell in love with Lupin, intends to return in September, and I’m happy to report that many of them have returned to Lupin on other occasions merely to enjoy the freedom and beauty of our eden. I am gratified that they feel accepted here and comfortable enough to express themselves.
When it comes to the MAsT group, they’ve been coming to Lupin for a year now on a monthly basis. They also, appreciate the best thing about Lupin and fully comprehend and abide by our rules. They meet at 7 PM on Sundays in NuDome, a time when Lupin is normally quite empty of visitors since our members normally leave for home around 4 PM on Sundays. They have a subject driven discussion every month, followed by social interaction within their group behind the closed doors of NuDome. Many of them use the hot tub and pool additionally, following Lupin’s rules all the time. I have discovered that a few Lupin members may also be a part of this group, and they attend the meetings regularly additionally.
In my own opinion, these groups are extremely compatible with Lupin and our standards of conduct. They’re appreciative of our space and acreage, and contribute to our earnings by paying gate fees and eating in our restaurant. Their actions are safe and rational, and practiced IN PRIVATE among consenting adults. As a resident and staff member and also as someone who adores Lupin, I wouldn’t normally welcome them here as I do under any conditions.

nursing moms. Medical science is on the side of breastfeeding moms. Mental

Wellness principles are on the side of breastfeeding mothers. Common sense is on their
The only sway against
nursing moms is the irrational, unsupportable perspective that female breasts
are indecent and should not be seen. The time is long overdue to liberate the
female breast from its prison of intolerance, to normalize it away from the
sexual item it’s perceived to be and back to the instrument of
has consistently been.
Single men
We understand single men who
have brought female neighbors, friends, and girls from work. One man brought
two girls he met in a Dale Carnegie course. Another brought his sister, and
some have brought women from church.
Be aware of the sway
of your own subconscious mind-set. If you expect her to believe it is “filthy” or
for another reason turn you down, count on it, she probably will!
Try it! You could start
by casually mentioning the delights of clothes-free recreation to your female
friends. In answer to “How was your weekend?”, you could respond, “I seen a
Fkk club, and it was among the most relaxing experiences of my life!” Avoid
being excessively zealous; just answer her questions truly and
Fully. Let her bring up the issue again; if she feels like you are
Demanding her, she’ll likely back off.
After she is asked
questions a couple of times, direct her to this web site (or give her a copy of
our flyer, About Bare Buns) and give her a copy of THE BOTTOM LINE, which most
Folks find very encouraging. After she is read our advice, mention that you
could arrange for her to see a club.
Do not look competitive!
Indicate that she could go when you won’t be there (keep in mind that she might
be fearful that you’re just expecting to see her undressed), or that you’d be
willing to accompany her if she’ll be more comfortable attending with somebody
she knows.
Or indicate that she bring
one or two of her female friends. It’s often easier to bring two women, than
one. Something guys will never understand, like going to the rest room together.
Needless to say, every
Person might respond otherwise, but these approaches have helped many
Individuals beat that initial hesitancy to try nudism.
Sadly… many
people now call themselves a “naturist” as it’s a kinder and gentler manner of
saying “nudist”..! So what is the difference..? Today there really is no
difference… however I shall say this… we were all born nude and we’re all
nudists to one level or another. I despise folks calling nudism a
lifestyle… It’s merely an essential part of life itself..! So once again
I ‘ll tell you… if you must give me a title apart from a woman… I am a
“Fkk”… and I ‘m certainly not ashamed to say it simply that way..!
Two aims School Nudity has set are to
Support stronger female engagement and to recruit more college students.
These two groups seem to me evasive to nudism in general, therefore developments here
will not be easy or speedy, but we do have a strategy to address them rather than
Discount them.
As with many naturist organizations, our male members outnumber female members
70 percent to 30 percent. This will not adversely impact our main target, but
to keep our ranks actually coed, a 60:40 long range ratio definitely looks
We intend to establish greater visibility of our female members not only at our
Actions but in College Nudity government as well. Perhaps with this
increased visibility, the female members will not feel so outnumbered or left
out of the loop.
On the other hand, we can not go overboard lest people get the wrong opinion.
College Nudity isn’t a dating club and our events aren’t “gawkfests.” If
someone is interested in that, we suggest they go elsewhere. We do not bear
Unacceptable behaviour (though we’ve never had a problem thus far).
On the college
campus beat, we have been able to sign members
from the numerous schools and universities in the Boston area. We even fostered
the formation of an unofficial pupil naturist group on the Boston University
campus. By educating the public about nudism, maybe we can slowly transform
negative perceptions.
The Gen X crowd tends to be a fickle one; one week it is nudism, the next week
it’s bicycling. that’s why we must be russian family nudism with low attendance at many occasions.
At the end of last season, we had 50 odd members, but perhaps a dozen actively
participating members, which is a shame because the “no shows” are actually
missing out on some memorable occasions. By way of example, our small but avid
troupe at the 1995 Asian Naturist gathering was one of the last to depart, we
were having this type of good time.
Although School Nudity has been actively pursuing enthusiasts on the college
campuses, the reality is that most pupils go home during the summer, which in
most cases is not in the Boston area. Since most of our actions take place
June-September, this counts many students outside.

My next subject was a 34 year old male with a BS in Business Administration. He

Now is employed with a financial institution. His interests include bicycling, camping,
swimming, sporting events, and traveling. He readily acknowledges that he does not have a
Issue with social nudism. In fact, he believes that nudism is a form of artwork and a manner of
expressing oneself Frequently times he gets frustrated when society identifies nudism with
perversion or . In his opinion those who oppose nudism are either really close minded or
not comfortable enough with themselves to freely express the naked body. My theme

Said that he not only finds it fascinating, but also encouraging, the European culture
identifies with social nudism and will not make an issue of it.
As one might expect, my issue doesn’t have a problem with nude beaches or
resorts. In fact he’s visited both places on several occasions admitting that his first
experience left him feeling a bit unsettled in not understanding what to expect. Yet, he was
Instantly reassured that with social nudity there are no expectations and that everyone is
comfortable in simply being themselves. He says that nude beaches and resorts give nudists
The chance to to assemble without worrying about being harassed by the community and law
officials. Nevertheless, he mentioned that he’d like to motivate local governments to
allocate a place of the plage that would be plainly marked for allowing nudity. This would
give those who want to go bare the chance, as good as those who don’t desire to go
nude, the alternative to utilize another part of the seashore.
In concluding my interview, I asked my issue why he felt people choose to participate
in social nudism. His reply to my question was that some people enjoy the independence of

expressing themselves while naked, and societal nudism gives them the opportunity to match
others with similar interests. Finally, I asked him if he would contemplate such a lifestyle
and he responded, “I already am a part of this lifestyle as I visit nude beaches and resorts on a
regular basis. I enjoy having the opportunity to express my nudity in public. ” 7

My eighth subject was a 41 year old female who has a Bachelor’ s degree in Company
Management and is currently employed with a banking firm. She’s divorced and a single
Mother. Her interests include watching her son play sports, shopping, golfing, biking, and
socializing with friends. She also said that she enjoys attending college football, and
professional baseball games.
as soon as I requested her to discuss her feelings about social nudism she stated that
although it is not a lifestyle she would personally consider, she’s not against it. She
expressed some concern for children and non-nudists who may find nude beaches offensive.
Nevertheless my subject mentioned that nude beaches are okay as long as there are signs posted
Educating the public the strand is clothing optional. Nude resorts appeared to be more
appealing to my area because they’re more secluded and there would be some progressed
warning of what to anticipate. Nonetheless, she stressed again that she would not participate in social
nudism because, “I am quite self-conscious about my body, and I love clothes too much.”8

Interview #9

My next subject was a 62 year old male. He is a human resource director with a
Faculty degree. He loves sports, reading, cooking, and the artwork. He offered to be
interviewed while I was questioning his pal about social nudism. He stated that he’s
Seen nude beaches in Wisconsin and Florida and found both areas to be similar in nature.

Yet, said the beaches in the Miami Florida area appear to attract a more
Varied group of nudists as opposed to Wisconsin shores.
Obviously my subject is in favor of nude beaches, but, he did state that signs should
be posted informing the people the area is clothing optional. Also he mentioned that
although many people may see nude beaches exclusively for the view, a far greater amount of
Folks just enjoy the feeling of complete freedom while sunning, walking, and swimming.
When asked if he’d consider this kind of lifestyle, he said, “Probably not, but it’s
okay and really no big deal. ” 9

Interview #10

My final issue was a 43 year old female. She is married and has one son. When
asked to discuss her feelings about social nudism she confessed that she really doesn’t see
anything wrong with the lifestyle, nevertheless, it is not something she would decide to participate
in. She said that she was brought up in an extremely conservative Catholic family and would
feel quite uncomfortable going to a nude beach or resort. Nevertheless, my issue did happen
to stumble upon a nude beach in Jamaica where some females were topless. Her immediate
reaction was incredulity, but after awhile she was alright with it, highlighting that the
Encounter didn’t make her desire to remove her top. Her closing remarks were, “I do not
Believe social nudism is perverted. I think some people feel comfortable with what God has

Liberty Tackles the questions of Bra Necessity and Why Naturist Women Wear Bras

Guest Blog by Liberty Braless
Why Do Naturist Girls Wear Bras By Liberty Braless:
Naturist Girls and Bras – “Why do naturist girls wear bras?” is a question that’s been around for quite a while, women tending to have a love-hate relationship with the garment in question. The replies for this question are complex, but why should it be of special interest to nudists? While comprehending the risks of generalizing, naturists tend to be more conscious of their body and to spend more time unclothed. So we might expect them to be less wedded to items like a bra. Nevertheless, naturists are inclined to move in two worlds, naturist and cloth, and due to perceived stigma to naturism, they frequently visit some lengths to keep the two different.
The bra has many roles in women’s lives. It was initially conceived as a substitute to the corset as women became more busy openly in the early twentieth century. It was mainly a cover, and one of the first versions was just two handkerchiefs sewn together by a corner to make two diamond shape breast covers. As the undergarment business became a multibillion dollar international industry numerous ways were found to market bras to girls – function, icon, privacy, fashion statement, charisma and maybe most significant of all, essential.
Why do Naturist Girls Wear Bras
One of the promised functions of the bra is to ‘support.’ If naturists appear to need little support when naked, why would they want support when textiled? The concept of support is obviously completely fictional. Whether evolutionist or creationist it’s hard to believe that the human female is made in a sense that demanded her to have her breasts cantilevered to prevent losing them, or damaging them. Breasts are well supported, attached to the chest wall by a wide base and by a skin cover. As they grow larger and mature they bend so the undersurface of the breast lies on the outwardly projecting chest wall to form the inframammary fold. In fact, what the bra does is elevate the breast to a flat position, imitating pubescent breasts, thus throwing the entire weight onto the back, neck and shoulders, sometimes with serious health consequences.
In the search for new markets, makers, having exploited every colour, shape, fashion and material, created a fresh notion. Girls, they noticed, were becoming more active and participating in sports. Possibly, they wondered, they could be persuaded to purchase yet more bras to cover every time of the day and action, and hence the sports bra came to be. Breasts move with exercise they stated, which isn’t a really surprising finding. The following step was to assert that this was femdom beach . Moving breasts might bring attention to you, and worse might really damage these organs, consequently girls must command their breasts with scientifically’ proven . In practice breast motion is not that significant, being good-anchored and normally solid, and most sports bras do little to reduce movement .
Push-up bra marketing

Naturists are usually associated with healthful outdoor, physically active lifestyles, and for many, playing sports in the nude comes naturally. The fact that naturists usually are not afflicted with damaged breasts raises serious questions about the rationale for the sports bra. You’ll find really no reports in the medical or scientific literature of breast tissue damaged by exercise.
We’ve been witnessing a progression towards more top independence lately, and if it continues, it’s a serious hazard to the lingerie industry. But more significantly if women are likely to be spending more of their day unsupported’ why would they feel the need to do so at other times of the day?
Additionally, nudists aren’t by nature unduly simple, but by simultaneously moving in a dominant fabric world they might internalize those values and maybe overcompensate to shield their disguised naturist lives. The modesty argument for bras is fundamentally contradictory. While providing cover’ and disguising the actual contours and components of the breast, they are also sold as things that accentuate the breasts, and as sexual baits.
Given that that there’s no social or scientific logical for a bra, that there are important concerns of harmful effects, and that they are expensive, uncomfortable and seldom healthy, one might expect them to go down the historic course of many earlier garments like corsets. Nonetheless given the intense marketing and social pressures this is unlikely to occur in the immediate future. Two variables in women’s lives and health might make a difference however – increasing topfreedom, and by expansion normalizing nudism and removing the stigma that creates an existence of two isolations.
What do my female naturist readers believe? Are bras required? Do you go braless? Does one run or play sports totally unclothed or don a sports bra? Leave a comment!

Hippies Vs. Occupy Wall Street – Love Has Staying Power!

The Hippies – Fighting Hate With Love Vs. OWS – Fighting Discouragement With Hate:
Occupy Wall Street failed where others succeeded – WHY? I want to explain why I believe it failed, the lessons that should be learned and the connections it might have to Nudist Portal in addition to other naturist organizations.
So what was Inhabit Wall Street? Basically it was an anarchist “leaderless” movement that, in other words, desired to stop capitalism. They offered up no actual options to any of the difficulties but protested the things they did not approve of in society nowadays.
Hippies Fight Hate With Love
Their name says it all – “Inhabit Wall Street” – is a call to action for individuals to “Occupy” an area of New York City that doesn’t belong to them (they were fundamentally Squatting and claiming their right to a section of the city regardless of any annoyances or issues that it may have caused).
The Occupy movement bears a striking resemblance to Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin’s “New Left” movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Both the New Left and Occupy movements brought defeated individuals who lost all trust in the economic and political systems in the States. Both were outside to shake up the status quo with the hopes of running a societal revolution / societal coup.
Neither were truly looking to solve the dilemmas and work within the present system. They did not believe in the election system nor did they feel that any change could be brought about unless the governments were to be taken over and reconstructed from scratch. There were no recognized targets or benchmarks for success and both were more revolutionaries than “evolutionaries.” They both used negativity to bring focus to their attempts and getting detained on national TV was considered wonderful!
OWS March On The Brooklyn Bridge
In the case of Inhabit Wall Street, the people behind the scenes, pulling the strings, used deception and flat out lies to get focus. With the aid of some reporters they put out fake statements to attract attention.
Their first big hoax was their statement that Radio Head (a popular music band) was going to preform when in fact, no such occasion was planned. People flocked by hundreds to see the group preform and once they got there, they were greeted by lots of Occupiers who began preaching. Naturally, many people were put off by this publicity stunt, but at precisely the same time it gave OWS the opportunity to address hundreds of new potential assistants. Those that stayed must have quickly forgotten that they were lied to.
In marked contrast to the New Left (and the OWS ideals) was the hippie movement. The hippie movement, which was part of the “Old Left,” was out to address particular societal problems and wanted to create something fresh rather than destroy the present system. Hippies wanted to end the war in Vietnam, they wanted , more tolerance and used positive messages to obtain support.
Each of the above movements appealed to very different demographics. The hippie movement of the late sixties started something within a particular demographic that believed in nonviolent ways to address dilemmas. They attracted people from all over America and ignited something with artists for example Joan Baez, CCR, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and others who all dropped what they were doing and went to support the cause in a little known town in New York called Woodstock.

The Occupy Wall Street movement, was about anarchy and completely shattering the status quo. Since they believed that lies and misinformation were acceptable ways to get focus, they appealed to those with very different value systems (or the lack thereof) than those who supported the hippies.
Just considering the impact of these social movements you’ll be able to see does have a tendency to repeat itself. The Awesome Left got its media interest when they protested at the 1968 democratic convention in Chicago. The 8 leaders / activists were arrested and put on trial in what’s now widely referred to as the trial of the Chicago 8 (Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, , Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, Lee Weiner and Bobby Seale). But soon afterwards, these leaders and the movement they created dwindled and pretty much disappeared without making as much of an impact as they’d have liked.
The First Chicago 8
Take Wall Street is going through the exact same thing. They set out to topple the status quo and have very little to demonstrate by way of positive impacts. The hippie movement faded through the years also, but they created a heritage that’s felt and discussed to this very day. Their achievements in areas of civil rights and the Vietnam War had a major impact on the USA. They also had a clear impact on the arts in all its various facets. Their ideals are echoing still now in music, artwork, and in regular life.
What I ‘m basically trying to say is that while fury and rage are strong motivators, Love has staying power. Young Naturists America isn’t about taking away, it’s about building on what currently exists and trying to correct much of the societal problems that plague society today. We’re not leeching away of others’ success, we’re developing a subculture that’s fully separate and distinct.

Kenneth Clark (The Nude, p. 19) commented: “So our surmise the discovery of the nude as a type of artwork is
connected with idealism and faith in quantifiable symmetries appears to be accurate, but it is just half the truth. What
other peculiarities of the Greek head are called for? One obvious solution is their belief the body was something

can be understood simply in relation to their philosophy. It expresses above all their sense of human wholeness.
Nothing which related to the whole guy could be isolated or evaded; and this serious knowledge of how much was

[“Nudity in Greek Sports,” 4361 asserts “The public nakedness which does not, in the 1970’s shock us as it

shocked the Romans-though it does, perhaps, appear somewhat uncivilized for the Greeks-enabled the athletes
to show the complete control they exerted over their bodies. Since they were the only people to compete nude,
they could well believe they were the only individuals capable of such self-control: here, perhaps, was a clear
superiority over the barbarians, who had to hide themselves both to prevent tempting others and to conceal their own
lack of control.” For more references seeing the practice of nudity in Greek sports, see ibid., pp. 434 n. 10,

Body Image Site Titled: Unattainable Beauty by: A. Tarasenko
Unattainable Beauty:
Body Image – Unattainable Beauty – It is a chicken-or-the-egg scenario: What comes first, our idea of what is beautiful or attractiveness itself driving our thoughts? Does beauty even exist as a unique thing or could it be purely in the eye of the beholder? What happens when we’re told what to behold as lovely?
Unattainable Beauty
We all whine about how today’s images of ideal beauty are vastly different from fact, distinct enough for many people to starve themselves to death or go under the knife for life altering (possibly life finishing) operation. What convinces these individuals to embrace this kind of curious notion of attractiveness which they feel like they have no choice but to dedicate to your life of chasing conformity? These ideals cannot just pop out of thin air, and there are not any aliens in a parallel universe planting images of supermodels into our marketing so millions of girls can eat lettuce the rest of their lives. So where does it all come from?

Our only visual records of the aesthetic of the past are what artists deemed crucial to put down on paper. If I had a nickel for every time I had a conversation with someone about how different the perfect body type was back then compared to now, I wouldn’t have to go to work tomorrow. The perfect woman had an accentuated waist, round hips, large breasts, and a symmetrical face with moist lips. The women all looked ready for action with sensuous chubby bodies and the men ready to ravage or fight a lion, whichever came first. Back then it was mostly reproduction that drove our aesthetic, or very simply place Sex.
Even in the renaissance, the demure down-turned face of the infinite Virgin Mary paintings had something coy behind the grin. But what happened to those bends, those soft fleshy women of yesteryear’s best masterpieces? Well let me point out that it was not as much of a reality back than as we dream about, meaning that people didn’t run around nude, surely never exposing that much flesh; and there was no such thing as advertisements, a medium that would enable the mass distribution of images. was that many women died prematurely due to the controlling, body transforming corsets they’d to wear. Those paintings we see now in museums were created more for the whims of their (usually male) patrons and hence defined their sexual tastes more than anything.
Afterward came the creation of media and the over-saturation of advertising in our media outlets. Now’s aesthetic is not really an aesthetic at all, but it’s a product of the privatization of beauty. Any firm who makes a beautifying product will attempt to sell it as something we cannot live without (cosmetics, fashion, plastic surgery). Hence they perpetuate the pictures of beauty they understand aren’t attainable so we may hopefully be deceived into believing they are by using their products.
Lacing a Dandy
At the conclusion of the day, no one can define what we are all supposed to look like and feel about our bodies. I could safely say that those of us who have already been blowing off society’s pleas to buy into a singular idea of beauty may continue to do so at no detriment to themselves. For individuals who do fall into the snare, I expect they see sooner than later that instead of loving themselves like they should, they’re merely spending their time here on earth following trends that alter in accordance with whatever companies are trying to sell them.
