Frequently Asked Questions
Why become a nudist?
Have you ever wanted to go swimming without a swim suit? Or sit
out in the sun and not get any tan lines? There are probably as
many reasons for becoming a nudist as there are people. Nudism
helps to increase one's self-esteem, promotes relaxation and
What kinds of people are nudists?
Nudists come in all shapes, sizes, and ages--doctors, teachers,
construction workers, lawyers, dispatchers, truck drivers, police
officers, secretaries, firefighters, nurses! The Roper Organization
reports that 40 million Americans have skinny-dipped in mixed company.
Your colleague at work, or the family next door, may spend their
leisure time at a club affiliated with the American Association
for Nude Recreation - Northwest (AANR-Northwest) and the American
Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). You are accepted for who
you are inside,
how you look
outside. People who enjoy nude recreation develop a healthy body
image which builds self-esteem.
What are nudist clubs like?
The atmosphere of nudist clubs is wholesome and friendly. People
enjoy everyday recreation activities such as swimming, walking,
hiking, cycling, tennis, and volleyball. Most clubs have sports
and other events much like any resort. Club members are careful
about who enters the facility and if anyone seems to be there for
the wrong reason, he or she will be asked to leave.
What should I know before I go?
The personality of each club is unique. Rules may vary somewhat
from club to club. In general the rules are quite simple, based
on common sense. Always bring a towel to sit on, and possibly another
to dry off with after the pool or hot tub. It is also a good idea
to bring sunglasses, sun screen, and comfortable shoes. You are
expected to look after your children, and conduct yourself as you
would in any family environment. Some clubs insist on nudity on
the first visit, while others are "clothing optional,"
allowing you to remain clothed until you feel comfortable. Be clothed
when practical, unclothed when possible.
How do I visit?
Families, couples and singles are invited to visit. Call or write
the clubs which interest you for more information about facilities,
prices, food, pets, hours, etc. Travel clubs (those without permanent
facilities) usually schedule visits to landed clubs as well as have
events at members' homes--and public lands where available.
Annual membership dues and day fees, or grounds fees, vary from
club to club. Before visiting, contact the clubs that interest you
and ask questions.
Should we bring our children to the club?
Children are natural nudists who grow and develop healthy attitudes
toward the human body. They learn about the differences between
the male and female body in a natural atmosphere. It's the rejection
of nudity that's a learned response. Children raised in nudist
households are more likely to have better educations, better jobs
and more stable marriages. [Abramson,
