A nudism family is a person who prefers to recreate, work, relax, play games, swim, hike, visit with friends, or whatever without clothes. It creates a great feeling of comfort, relaxation, and freedom that simply cannot be achieved with the mental and physical encumbrances of clothing. Nudists will agree on this point, but will also point out that the acceptance of this truth can only be realized through participation, not through reading or thinking about it, or discussing it with others. It is an experiential reality.
Nudism is about freedom, enjoyment, and getting in touch with yourself and the real personality in others.
Social nudism is a sense of freedom, comfort and relaxation that cannot be achieved when confined physically and mentally in clothing. People, generally, are friendlier and interact more easily and quickly when nude. By meeting at clubs or beaches with people from all over the country and the world there is a kind of national and international camaraderie that develops. It is an active, take control way to shed oneself of fear and shame regarding our bodies.
