Nudist Resorts For Young People

Nudists Worry About the Wrinkling of the Naked Movement


Annual pantsless subway rides are popular with 20-somethings today, but young people seem reluctant to fully commit to the nudist movement. In a report on the state of the nudist resort industry today, the Wall Street Journal explains clientele overwhelmingly includes graying, wrinkling baby boomers.

Membership to national nudist groups, including the Naturist Society, have been dropping or flat for years. In order to add younger bodies to their ranks, nudists hold reverse-strip poker nights (you start with your clothes off), 5K races, and music festivals like Nudestock, although organizers should call it Nudechella, if they really want to ditch the baby boomer image. Hoping to attract new members, the newly established Young Nudist and Naturists of America will also host a naked dinner party in an NYC loft.

The main problem facing nudist clubs, according to the article, is that they feel like retirement homes. But if they can reinvent themselves to appeal to younger people, would you consider embracing the freedom that comes with wearing no clothes at nudist resorts?

I already belong to a nudist resort. We are in the younger side of our resort, mid-forties, but certainly not the youngest people there. We love to go out and get naked in nature. Its not about being young, old, having the perfect body or not, its about relaxing in a safe fun environment with nice people. I wish everywhere was a nudist or at least a clothing optional area. Of course, the general population would have to mentally mature before a lot of people (but not all people) could understand that being nude is not shameful, gross, morally deprived, loose or something to be made fun of. Being nude is a natural thing. We should not let the glorious human body be defined as something perverted or something to be ashamed of. Everyone has a body, they are all unique and that is part of what makes them so great. So whether you are young, old, fat, slim, have no titties or they are so long they hit your knees, have a little dinky or are hung like a horse go out and have a naked day you deserve it.
