Naturist resorts are the latest craze lately, especially after the exposure it’s been getting in the media. There are nudist clubs and naked rooftop bars opening up everywhere in Berlin, Paris and London, and new naturist resorts opening up on regular basis in different exotic locations around the world.
Naturism is a way of life where the body is in harmony with nature, characterized by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment.
Naturism is a lifestyle of health and wellness for people who enjoy clothing-optional, naturist or nudist recreation. The concept is based on the well-known positive effect of naturism on stress and tensions and its boosting effect on self respect and positive body image.
When naturists talk about “social naturism” or “nude recreation” they mean just that—nude group activities. The variety of activities varies tremendously. There’s nude backpacking, nude kayaking, nude scuba diving—even nude skydiving. For more relaxed nude activities, there is everything from the traditional day trip to the nude beach to naked house parties, chartered nudist cruises and weekend excursions to naturist resorts or nudist campsites.
