HISTORY OF NUDISM
The organized nudism (FKK,
Freikörperkultur) comes from Germany. First it
came to the scene on the beginning of the twentieth
century. It was the time of cultural activities, of
taking off of the too tight collars and the time of the
sharing of common values; there was the need for light,
air and for a more natural way of living, as well as
for a less restrictive clothing. The book of Neinrich
Pudor "Cult of Nudity" became a kind of lighthouse in
that period of time. In the year 1903 the Freilichtpark
was opened near Hamburg, the first known nudist club.
Shortly after that, Heinrich Ungewitter issued "Die
Nacktheit" (Nudity), a Utopia about the life in total
nudity. It became reissued several times. The nudism movement grew very very fast and it
became in Germany at that time very wide spread with
large areas of nudist clubs near big German cities. After the Second World War the idea caught on and,
what more, it grew into international dimensions.
One of the most important role in the spreading of
nudism beyond the borders of Germany played the huge
progress of the international tourism, where the
citizens of other countries were confronted with the
nudism in Germany. Also many German nudist spend their
holidays at the Mediterranean sea on the territory of
todays Croatia, where there were massively on the
beginning of the 60-ties new nudist camps founded,
because the Yugoslavs wanted to attract as many German
tourists as possible. What the spread of the nudism in
the US concerns, here played without any doubts the
most important role the Hippies-movement. One of its
basic features was just the group share of nudity. Now if we take a look at the present times, nudist
are no more considered by the vast majority of the
public as crank people or "moral deviants" and they
enjoy increasingly tolerance and understanding of the
rest of the population, thanks mainly to the public
work and bigger standard of knowledge. More and more
people get inspired by the nudism movement and they
become its members. Nudist groups are nowadays active
in the most countries of the world. The asceticism of
the early nudism (no cigarettes no alcohol,
vegetarianism and the abandonment of material
pleasures) was replaced by in some kind of a freer
apprehension of life and also by a simple return of the
man to the nature through nudism (naturism) on the
beginning of the 21 century.

Steve's First Time Nudist
I was not born into a nudist family and therefore I was
taught that one should not go around without their
clothes on. Being nude in front of others was acceptable
only in certain situations (Doctor's office, locker
rooms, school showers, or other places where changing
clothing was acceptable) and only for the short time it
was required. One just did not walk around nude in mixed
As a youngster I went to a summer camp that was
run by my Father and once a week we had "Scrub". Normally
we wore out bathing suits when we swam in the lake, but
on "Scrub Day" we took soap to the lake and left our
suits in the cabins. As this is the only way we could
really wash, and because it was an all boys' camp, the
required nudity was acceptable. Because I could not swim
I did not like going to the lake at all. As far as I was
concerned being being nude with the other boys was not
the problem being at the lake was.
A number of years later I finally learned how to swim and
found swimming was much more enjoyable without wet
clothing. Before the YMCA went co-ed I frequently swam
nude there. I was sorry, at the time, when the Y changed
its policy and required suits.
I wanted to go SKINNY-DIPPING and I doing so in alone in
a remote area was unsafe
As there are not a lot of clothing optional beaches in
Eastern Massachusetts (maybe some but they were hard to
get to) I felt that my skinny-dips would be very few and
very far between.
One day I found out about a resort near me where one
could swim suit free without hassle. I sent for the
While I had never been uncomfortable being nude for short
periods of time in places where it was expected, I had
never gone around nude for an extended period of time and
certainly not in mixed company.
My first project, therefore, was to be comfortable with
myself nude for no particular reason. I practiced doing
that by going around my apartment nude. Nudity was
required when washing dishes, watching TV, paying bills,
and doing many other household tasks.
I wasn't sure what my first visit to
would be like, but I definitely wanted to give it a try.
I could always go home. I checked into the office,
completed some paperwork, showed identification, and then
drove to another parking area where I would be met by
someone from the membership committee
As I drove past the lake I saw a beach populated by nude
of men, women, and children. They seemed quite
comfortable and unashamed. Nice tans. As the brochure
stated, clothing obviously was out of place in this
setting. Well, even though no one knew me, I was not
going to embarrass myself in public by looking out of
place. I undressed
I did not have to wait long before I was greeted by a
nude man who gave me and another couple the tour of the
campground. The tour ended at the lake and I was on my
own. Well, I was here to go skinny-dipping and there was
the lake. I swam for a while and then decided to just sit
and sun on the beach. Without wet clothing I was warm and
comfortable. Sure I was nude, but so was everyone else
and, again, clothing was definitely out of place here.
Later I took a short walk on my own. As I passed other
people a smile and "Hello" was in order, the lack of
clothing was of no significance.
I returned to the lake for more swimming and sunning.
Before going home I took a warm shower in the round
building that housed the showers. As the shower and
adjoining hot tub made the drying area humid, I went
outside. That did it for me. I was dried by the gentle
breeze and the warm sun. That convinced me that this was
how we were meant to be. There was nothing disgraceful
about being nude. I completed the remaining visits and
interviews as soon as I could and became a member.
That was my first real nudist experience. I have given up
the textile life and now am clothed only when required.
Since that time I have joined a number of naturist
organizations and participated in a number of nudist
activities. I have attended a lot of the
Gatherings & Festivals. I also have been on nude cruises.
Nudity is the freedom of speech and thus protected by the
