In the past 20 years, FKK has published almost 30 characteristics on topfree equality in CWS and N . The Naturist Action Committee has worked with Topfree rights groups like the Topfree Equality Rights Association, headed by Canada’s Paul Rapoport, 18 and has financed challenges in court to give girls the same right as men to bare their chests in public. Perhaps the most spectacular example was FKK’ engagement with the Rochester Topfree Seven, a group who successfully challenged a discriminatory law in Fresh York state to acquire topfreedom for women there in 1992.In the mid-1980s Michelle Handler and some other activist girls in FKK began to attack what they considered to be sexist depictions of girls in magazines. Pointing to the disproportionate coverage of women in CWS, Handler claimed that FKK and other naturist/fkk organizations desired to present more men in their periodicals and ads. Also, the critics charged, they needed to show a greater array of body shapes, sizes, and colors. Handler’s approach became divisive and took up much of FKK’ attention during the late 1980s; but the core of her message was worth cautious thought. FKK has needed all along to support women in naturism, but now saw that it could be done, and perhaps should be done, in a slightly different manner. Over the course of the next two or three years CWS, and then N, would present a much more complete picture of the naturist population.

Today N shows naturists in all their assorted shapes, sizes, ages, and skills. As America has gained weight, so too have the individuals in N. As naturists have aged, so also have those depicted in its debut journal. No naturist organization and no naturist magazine can claim to more correctly show the beauty and energy, as well as the warts and scars, of nudism as FKK and N magazine. Appearing from the ecologically conscious youth of the 1970s, bbw nudism pics continues its emphasis on our natural connection to the biosphere. Beach and hot spring support groups in the Naturist Network regularly host clean-up days, helping the local management agency in caring for the site. This not only helps to foster good relationships with the site authorities, it also shows a naturist interest in maintaining and health of the acreage.

FKK parties and festivals habitually offer and seminars informing attendees about their relationship to the natural world. Vegetarian alternatives are offered at assembly and festival meals. And each assembly offers the opportunity to escape from the developed club grounds for a day to a local plage or . This might appear like a little point, but way too many naturists forget the happiness of being outside in nature clothes-free, surrounded by birds and creatures, and swimming in the living water of lakes and streams. Lee Baxandall’s early work in theatrical and performance arts set the tone for FKK’ support of aesthetic excellence. N has covered many significant art works and events that exemplify the subjects of body endorsement of social nudity. Posts have appeared on paintings, sculpture, opera, theater, performance art, literature, and theatre. FKK has supported several artists who have shown particular gift in developing naturist themes in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. FKK has sponsored workshops in art modeling, figure drawing, silk screening, watercolor painting, performing, dance, photography, and music. In 1997 and 1998 FKK even hosted clothing-optional Jazz Festivals near Seattle, Washington, featuring the top jazz musicians of the region.
FKK & The Future

As FKK enters the 21st Century, it acknowledges that naturists and non-naturists are becoming cyber-literate and that increasingly more people are looking to the Internet for their information and reading diversion. Although FKK stays a membership organization expressing itself mainly through the printed word and face-to-face personal interaction, FKK and N are reacting to the call for on-line access. FKK has kept a Web site since 1996, at The website has been completely re-designed several times, featuring access to N posts, Network contacts, Party & Festival tips, NAC Alarms, and an on-line Skinny Dipper Store.
