My Naturist Philosophy

What naturism means to me

Quite simply, much of the time it's just more comfortable than wearing clothes! But also, it helps me to retain a little personal freedom in this modern and over-restrictive world. We all too readily accept the rules and conventions imposed upon us by our ancestors and those who act in authority, however each of these groups has (at least) one major flaw:

I'm thankful that I've never had to live in a time or place when women had to keep such "offensive" parts as their shoulders and ankles covered; or when men had to work from the age of fifteen while the women stayed at home, no questions asked. We've changed the world many times before; what's to stop us doing it again?

Naturist or nudist

Returning to the main topic, you might be wondering why I choose to call myself a naturist rather than a nudist, or even why I give myself such a label at all. In terms of the label itself, I simply see it as a description of a part of my character, in much the same way as you could describe me as a feminist. As for which label I choose to use, I don't consider there to be a lot of difference between nudism and naturism, and I just prefer the latter term.
