either topless, or bottomless, making it a little more balanced for me and my friends. The

race started, as we took off, down the paved roadway, through the resort, out onto the
sandy pathway, and into a abandoned orange grove. Crossing over the finish line, we were
congratulated by a Naturist, and given our blue ribbon. We decided to call it a day, and
headed toward the parking lot. On our way outside, as a momento, I purchased a video, titled,
A Day at Lake Como Club, exemplifying the many social activities this resort offers.

That evening, I sat quietly by myself, reflecting back on my experiences of the day
Seeing social nudism. At first I wondered just how many non-nudists ever get the chance

to see a Natuists resort. I thought to myself, not really many, and started recognizing just how
fortunate I was to have been able to seek out this experience. It was at this time, I became
inspired to further investigate the lifestyle of social nudism.
What I learned from my first encounter with social nudism is that Natuirsts are
ordinary individuals, from various socioeconomic classes, who choose to go about their
Company, with the lack of clothing. Naturists are incredibly comfortable with their
bodies, regardless of shape or size, leading me to believe that they’re less judgmental and
more accepting of others. This was quite apparent to me upon entering the resort, when I
noticed that there were some quite over weight, in addition to physically healthy people walking
Approximately nude. No one seemed offended or bothered by this, leading me to believe that
Naturism is a very cozy and natural lifestyle. From this encounter I can conclude
that social nudism is http://mon-blog-gay.net/index.php/2016/05/07/over-the-years-ive-grown-to-really-enjoy-nudists/ , contrary to what others choose to believe. I was never
asked, or felt forced by the Naturists, to remove my clothes. Also, I didn’t

Observe any shows of sexual behavior while visiting the resort. Everyone was friendly,
making it easier for me to feel more relaxed, and comfortable. Overall, I feel that my first
Meeting with social nudism was quite positive, which in turn, prompted me to make a
return visit, a year later.
My second visit to Lake Como proved to be more pleasant than the first. I entered
the resort with a better understanding of what the Naturists lifestyle is about. I wasn’t http://nudenudist.com/tube/while-looking-for-the-nude-beach/ about entering the resort, though this time, I invited a gentleman to
accompany me, expecting to enrich his life as mine has been by introducing him to social
nudism. My second visit to the fkk resort functioned to reinforce my views, as formerly
stated, about societal nudists.
With this paper I ‘ve investigated various cultures as well as attitudes among people
Viewing nudism attempting to bring more knowledge to the lifestyle. Although nudists
have been around since the start of time, for example, Early Greeks participating in
athletic events nude, or the Japanese and Romans indulging in communal washing, social
nudism didn’t become an organized lifestyle until the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Eventually, the attempts of many determined people prompted social nudism to gravitate
and take root in the USA. Public nudists fought for existence for many years
dodging ridicule from law officials, neighbors and family members, deeming them strange,
immoral and harmful to society. Often times nudists did not show their lifestyle for fear of
jeopardizing their social status or jobs. Social nudism is more readily accepted today and
some nudists are not shy or inhibited about letting others know about their lifestyle,
Yet, some nudists continue to be unwilling to discuss societal nudism with non-nudists. I
noticed the above mentioned upon obtaining people for my interviews. Two were Naturists,
61

however, the first person freely interviewed with me while my second person consented
initially, and then declined, stating that they believed I didn’t really comprehend the philosophy
behind social nudism and that their job could be in danger if word got out that they’re a
Naturist.
To date, there isn’t any evidence indicating that social nudism is dangerous or
destructive to society or individuals. As a matter of fact, the social naturist lifestyle comprises
many advantages such as: relaxation in a non-threatening environment, stress relief, nonjudgmental approaches from others, higher degrees of self esteem, and total approval of one’s
own body. Even children and adolescents engaging in social nudism are more prone to
developing better approaches about themselves and their bodies, and in tum learn that the
human body is not only amazing no matter what size or shape, but worthy of admiration. The
media, on the other hand, does a excellent job of emphasizing the human body from just a
physical point of view depicting what the perfect human body should look like, when in reality,
not many people even come close to their unrealistic standards.
Although societal nudism continues to bring fresh members, many folks are still not
