Getting More Fkk Youth Involved in Nudism:
Nudist Youth – Yesterday the latest podcast of the Naturist Living Show came out entitled “Attracting Youth.” If you’ve never heard of the show, it’s a monthly podcast by Stephane Deschenes, owner of Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in Ontario, Canada. I don’t know how many of you listen to podcasts, but this Internet radio show music genre seems to have grown in popularity in the last few years. Nonetheless, in the world of nudism, Stephane is ahead of the game because he’s the only fkk podcast on the planet right now and a large following to boot.
Stephane requested to interview me for this month’s show about young naturists, who we are and what we are doing. So what you hear in the show is Stephane first sharing his ideas on how nudist clubs, groups, etc. can draw in more naturist youth. Then there is an interview with me, followed by an interview with Jess of the website Naked Vegan Cooking. If you need some tips or guidance on attracting youth to nudism, listen to this podcast. Stephane knows what he’s doing. Naked Oaks is known for its youthful visitors, members and staff, and apparently they’d hundreds of visitors under age 35 this past summer. It’s also one of the few clubs in North America that offers a discount rate to young adults (age 25 and below).
Stephane makes a number of great points, and I simply need to quote him on one that I think gets overlooked. He says that a critical part of bringing young people is having a “powerful naturist doctrine.” He says:
“I believe you’ve got to be very idealistic, I believe you’ve got to be an ethical naturistbecause when you’re young is when you are at your most idealistic. That’s when you’re most involved in causes. That is when a message of health and social justice and having a better world generally speaking with regards to body acceptance and getting along together. That message rings more accurate when you’re younger”
I think about my 24-year-old self and how I need to save the planet. So, yeah. This is totally true. And look at how many young people rally around the World Naked Bike Ride global, for instance. Give them a good reason or cause to get naked, and make way for nude youth on bikes!
As FKK, we’ve got this part covered. In fact it goes back to why we began FKK to begin with, because http://x-nudism.com/community/beach/handjobs-on-the-beach.php to us is unquestionably about much more than just becoming naked. At its heart, we consider the naturist movement should be about approval, as Stephane quotes us on. It’s what makes us body favorable and sex-positive! We have a set of ideals and causes we care about and fight for. While I think there are people who only need to get naked (or see nude people perhaps), I definitely agree with Stephane on this point, that it’s an important feature to consider when trying to bring youth to the naturist movement.
In the segment with Jess, I believe it’s worth noting that his blog is run by several young adults who are not just about cooking nude, but also work to boost body positivity, health and comprehension of issues they care about. It’s also interesting to note that although Jess engages in social nudity, he wouldn’t label himself a nudist or naturist. He hasn’t seen a nudist club, nor does he think such areas are important to his practice of social nudity. He mentions that there are many young individuals who try social nudism without thinking about it in nudist terms. We find this trend ourselves only in the numbers of those who haven’t seen any naturist club before attending a FKK assembly.
Things to ponder!

What do my readers think? Is having a prominent, defined naturist philosophy an important part of participating young people in naturism? Does a lack of one lead to a deficiency of interest in seeing fkk clubs, resorts or attending fkk group occasions?
