Definitely preaching to the choir but a great article.  I have yet another art project that aims to normalize the natural human form and will share when more work is completed.

Great stuff! I'd also like to point out that they are people, like my dad, who don't think nudity is inherently sexual and that nudism is fine, but they just don't care to see it.

I agree entirely that nude photos are important to naturism, so does this mean that the whole #freethenipple campaign is doing a lot of good? Top freedom is a huge step towards acceptance of the whole human body.

as much as you do feel that clothes are not necessary most the time people have rights to think for themselves

to be naked is as natural as eating or walking or sex

Totally agreed. A nude photo is totally natural - an expression of how wonderful the nudist lifestyle is!

One thing that's got my RPO on a couple of my Facebook pages is when a young lady posts a couple of nude photos of herself on the group, a whole load of guys come out of the woodwork demanding for her to share more photos.  Whilst I think photos are an important part to promote the naturist lifestyle, naturists are human beings as well.  They are not all show ponies, and treating them as such is rather patronizing in my honest opinion.

Nude photos also fosters body acceptance. I used to hate how my body looked. I thought I wasn’t the “ideal” body, or a body fit to be a naturist. But seeing many different people nude has changed my outlook. I have finally learned to accept myself, and accept others.


I could not agree more.
The only bodies that many people see, especially young people, are those that are photoshopped or the above average looking (and endowed) porn stars.
For some reason there is still heaps of confusion on why there is so much self loathing and hate for peoples own bodies. So many people are ashamed of how they look, or of their breast / penis size, due to only ever seeing the "perfect" image.
If there were more legal nude beaches, more imagery for naturism events, less association with naked=sex, then overall the mental health of society will increase. People will accept that while everyone is different, overall we are the same.
End Rant.

I am thinking, what if a group of people with a marketing buddy, or themselves if they know marketing and photography, get some good quality nude images out there (esp like the last picture). It is important to have photos of your experience, but threre seems to be a shortage of professional images.

I think the last picture shows that the human form is not inherently sexualized. It looks like it is from an art project such as http://www.naked-people.de. There are plenty of places to find professional photographs of naturism. H&E magazine for example. The hard part is getting people to  be willing to be photographed for marketing purposes. It's a very public thing to do. Even H&E seems to rely more on professional models, with real naturists mixed in a bit.

Naturists tend to be private, which makes it difficult for real naturist photos to stand opposite of the more voyeuristic tones of nudism that the internet has plenty of. It's not cool to take pictures of nude beach goers without their consent. It is definitely difficult to interpret the intent of the many blogs you find  on sites like Tumblr of attractive people and not a variety of bodies like real life.

I believe video of naturist events and outings is the next push for documentation to market naturism. Moving pictures tells the more complete story.

Sometimes I don't know what to think! How can I be free, and naked, and innocent and happy about it, when I'm going to be judged and condemned in the same moment, by people who for whatever reason (I share the very same environment/culture they/we all live in) don't see it as anything but a bad thing? I'm sooo cOnFuSeD sometimes! /-; I'm a good guy! I have a body under this cloth. Ok, and??...
