      They say 'clothes make the man'.  Well, what doth the birthday suit make?  The answer in my brief experience is a more relaxed man (man in this sense being applied to both genders).  An ex-girlfriend and i went to the hot springs in Loyalton, Ca. and besides...

    It's a shared level of respect

    that one doesn't typically get in textile society. People from every walk of like to be naked, regardless of politics, religion, money, background.... 'We are all naked under our clothes.'

    A Whole Different World

    I really saw this first hand during my visit to Avalon nudist resort. Everybody there was so friendly, everyone we encountered smiled and said hello, and treated us as if we were old friends (Im talking about complete strangers). Nobody asked what we did for a living....they...

    It's hard to judge others

    when you have nothing to hide behind... I've seen you naked, but so you have also seen me. We are unique, yet very much alike. We may have differing opinions, but we have each other. If we can trust our bodies' imperfections to each other's scrutiny, we can trust our...

    It Truly Does

    Clothed society seems so intent on judging people by the way they look and act. The naturist society, the clothes-free society, is so much more open and accepting. I remember going to my first nudist resort, and how friendly everyone was. It didn't matter that I was quirky with...

    Respect is something difficult to find,

    but I believe it can be in a level playing field. Clothing creates illusion, from illusion comes so many of the things we use to separate ourselves. In Eden Adam and Eve only fashioned clothes after sinning against God's edict.
