Want access to other areas? Great!  How to get that? Read the FAQ on the main page. 

1. Upon joining you are required to post an introduction topic in the introductions section as it helps other members in getting to know you and gives everyone a chance to welcome you to the community. Please note, anyone who is not able to do this, will have their account automatically deleted within a short time.

Guidelines for writing your introduction

2. Please try to refrain from religious or political debates on this forum.  Anything to do with the Church or activists or anything is banned. This would include not only Christianity, but all other religions as well.  In short, any post that inflames or says negative things about a religion will be banned.

Discussions about how a religion's doctrine about the main theme of this forum (Naturism) will be allowed to continue as long as they are not controversial in nature or inflammatory.

3. Do not add people to your personal instant messenger friends list without obtaining their permission. Simply, drop them a pm or email and ask to add them.  Also, no posting of personal contact data, such as email, messenger addresses, or social media accounts. If you wish to exchange them with other members, please do it privately via PM or email. Forum topics about instant messaging require moderator approval.

4. Fill out your profile truthfully. If you do not follow this rule, your account will be deleted immediately and you will be banned from our domain.
Multiple people using the same account:  Couples must join with separate accounts if their posts are going to be from both at times.  This is mandatory to avoid confusion and permissions which might be given.  (girls, teens area etc.)

5. No advertising other sites without permission of the staff.

6. No begging for naturist photos. Naturist photography and art, have been part of the lifestyle forever. If one wishes to exchange these then that is your decision. If someone declines, do not come back to them with repeated requests. Users found harassing other members about photos will have their membership terminated. Please follow our Reporting Guidelines to report any such incidents to staff.

7. Anyone uploading malicious software or programs will be immediately banned from this forum.

8. This forum is aimed at the younger crowd. That means up to, and including, 39 is fine to register but members who go past that we recommend becoming a member of Free Range Naturism instead. Current members 40 and over can stay if they want as along as they still make a positive contribution to the community.   

9. Webcams: Do Not Solicit for video chat in the open forum. We STRONGLY recommend that you do not accept webcam requests from anyone who is not known to you. Further, do not beg people to cam, or turn on your own cam without prior approval. If any complaints result from this rule the offender's account will be subject to termination. Please follow our Reporting Guidelines to inform staff of any transgressions.

10. No flaming, racist, sexist, or offensive language/ behavior is allowed.

11. References to other naturist forums: As we all know, many members here are also (or have been) members of other naturist forums on the internet. Some are undoubtedly current and active members, while others, for whatever reason, are no longer members of these other sites. In the spirit of keeping this a friendly forum, please use discretion, maturity, and common sense when mentioning other naturist forums in discussions here.

We understand that occasionally specific sites will be mentioned by name, and in keeping with the expected maturity of our members we ask that no severely negative or otherwise inappropriate remarks be posted.

It is understandable that we all have differing opinions of other naturist forums, but no matter how strongly you feel personally about a specific site, please keep in mind that while they may be less then what they claim at times, we are not in the business of dissing other sites, despite proven illegitimacy of some.

12. We, the staff, host and founders of this community respect all cultures and hobbies. We do not, however, allow depictions of firearms in this community. We are not against certain aspects of that hobby, but overall we are in agreement that we will not permit any depictions or discussions of firearms, with the exception of those that do not promote the use or possession of potentially lethal guns. This is not open for discussion. If you have need for further clarification, we invite you to contact one of our staff members please.

13.  Email accounts.  All members of this community must have a working, functional email account.  To not have one, shows that the person is not someone who really is interested in this community and communication.  Any email which is returned to us as 'bouncing' will result in the member's account being automatically deleted.

14.  No photos or videos portraying pornographic actions or poses to be posted in topics or the gallery. This is a youth forum with young members. Please think about it. Please do not upload personal photos with close up of your genitals.  And for the boys, do not upload photographs where you are aroused. Spy photos or photos that appear to be taken without those in photo consent in a place where a reasonable expectation of privacy would be assumed. FKK is not about that. 

15.  Use of off-color words in posts.  Are words censored?

No, we only ask you to use logic an manners in your posts.  If you wish to say fuck, say fuck. If you wish to say cock, say cock. :Words are words.

Saying that, if a poster is constantly using off color words (or cussing if you prefer) in their posts, then we do consider this inappropriate.  The occasional usage of off color words is fine, but if it is determined by the staff that overage of said words is a part of the posters history, then a simple warning/request will be made to ask them to stop.  If this is argued or not adhered to, then further action may and usually will, result in further action. 

We want a youth culture forum and while that means we should be tolerant, it does not mean that a poster will be permitted to cuss and use off color words on a constant basis. 

Now the obligatory "tough guy" talk: We obviously don't want to have to discipline anyone on here for any reason, however any inappropriate comments will be dealt with in accordance with our site policies.


Our Requests:

Search Before You Post
If you want to ask a specific question, please search the site using the search found up top, next to home - help - search to make sure the answer isn't already out there! If you search and find some answers but believe they're incomplete or out of date, feel free to create post a new topic.

Courteous Communication
Communicating on the Web in an all-text medium is a challenge, and it's always good to think twice before you hit that "Post" button. Realize that each time you reply, you're replying to a real person, with real feelings just like yourself. Try to write messages that cannot be easily misunderstood or misconstrued to mean something you didn't mean. And please, please use descriptive subject lines when you post a new topic!

Post in the appropriate forum.
Please take the time to read the forum descriptions and post your new topics to the appropriate forum. A moderator may see fit to move your post to a more appropriate forum.  If we happen to move a post, don't publicly throw a tantrum concerning it... contact us if you believe it was moved in error.

You have many options here.  You can not have one at all if you wish!  Since this is a naturist forum, nude avatars are fine here but nothing which might be considered as a close up of the pubic area is allowed. Why? Because it draws attention to that part of the bod and simply, that's not what this forum is about.  So, think about it please.  Thanks!

Access to the galleries comes in time to most.  We have them actually but the thing is, we don't want people to drop by, register, and then go straight to the galleries and that's it. This is a forum after all and while good photography has always been an integral part of real naturism, your primary purpose here has to be, must be, for interaction and contribution.  So, after you are settled in, get acquainted and get to posting and contributing, then those galleries will probably open up to you automatically (keyword folks) . If its simply photos you wish, there are a million other sites out there, some great, some not so great but you can find them!  Thanks for understanding.

Reporting Incidents:
We respect your privacy and do not read the personal messages you exchange over the forum and of course we have no access to any of your communications outside the forum. We therefore have no means to tell whether you are being harassed or made to feel uncomfortable by someone over these means - unless you tell us. Even if you can put up with it, there are others who may not be as resilient. Please help strengthen our community and stop such activity before it affects more people by reporting any such incidents. See our reporting guidelines for more info.

Size of individual photos that you may upload, is limited to 100KB. Photos sent up for approval that are in excess of that, will unfortunately be deleted.  If you need help in resizing, simply email a staff member. Thank you!

If you have any questions, please contact a staff member.
