Yep the naturist magazines are usualy on a top shelf with porn mags in the few shops that do carry them here in New Zealand too. I think this fact also helps with the false impression that Nudism is some sort of sexual or porn associated past-time to the other wise uneducated. They should be (Sealed maybe if the agent is a prude) stored with all the other health and well being publications

Barnes and Noble stockes nudism magazines in the back row of the travel section.  though i'm sure this decision is up to the local store manager.  the ones in the city do not group them with adult magazine, though they are still obscured by 5 rows of other magazines.  seems pretty reasonable to me.

In Australia you can certainly buy the mags in newsagents, however they can be hard to find as they are sometimes hidden amongst the porn mags, but not always. They can also be found in very random positions, with other less popular categories of magazine

It does sound weird to have them along porn magazines.

I always thought it was in the porn section as the land of Oz has many closed minded people on what is acceptable and what's not acceptable to do

N magazine (Nude and Natural published by The Naturist Society) is still being published, but Barnes and Nobles decided to stop carrying it some years back.  If you go to their website, you can purchase current and/or back copies of their magazine.

Ilsley Boone, creator of The Nudist/ Sunshine and Health and former president of the A.S.A. (American Sunbathing Association (now known as AANR, American Association for Nude Recreation)) was in a lawsuit to defend the rights to publish unedited nudist photos in his magazine.  Most photos were airbrushed from the early days, but greater demand for unedited images caused a long battle after the post office refuses to deliver them.  The battle paved the way for the unedited photos found in magazines from them on, but cost were never recouped and competion increased.  In the early 60's Ilsley Boone (aka Uncle Danny) was forced to sell Sunshine and Health and lost his position as president of the ASA. In the late 60's the magazine ceased production. It was briefly published in the early 80's by another publisher.

Ed Lange was a photographer who started as a free lance for Sunshine and Health, but after a disagreement with Boone on the direction of nudist magazines, he started his own company called Elysium.  Originally it's goals were to bring a more realistic view of nudist, by the late 60's his magazines took a few different directions, some of which made him lose favor with the nudist community, and was later regreted by him. In 2001 the last of his.company was resolved and his.daughters destroyed all his images remaining at the company, a collection dating back to the 40's.  The most recent issue of N magazine has an article on him.

Clothes with the Sun later name changed to N magazine or Nude and Natural has been published by The Naturist Society for 36 years.  One of a hand full of naturist magazines published today, and the only one from the US (to my knowledge) has very little staff.  Most of their articles and images are submitted by readers. They have stricter guidelines regarding who can advertise on them then.many of the other magazines and their articles cover a wide range of naturist related topics. 

This is only a small, brief history of some of the American publishers.  The history of these magazines is not always the easiest to find.
