NOOK - a social networking site for naturists - http://www.naktiv.net/nook/

Younger people might want to also join this forum - http://internationalyn.org/forum/

A small community on the net, which occupies itself with the craft of secret naturism. Secret naturism is about being nude where you arenít supposed to be. This grays into free range naturism. We are often in a world where it is believed that we are not to be naked, but in the shower, or maybe a resort. The registration is safe, the camaraderie is warm and respectful. There is a trove of knowledge found there. Members post their adventures and experience, often with pictures: http://secretnaturistsociety.org

There is a web site called Experience Project where members share their experiences, pretty much anonymously.  Included in EP are dozens of nudist related "Experience" groups.   They don't allow nude photos on the posts, but don't police it unless someone complains. They don't allow sexual fantasies on the nude groups, but don't police that much either.  EP is kind of free range posting.   The management doesn't seem to have a clear direction for the site and keeps making changes. 

Here are couple sample naked groups on EP:

Naturist links - Singles Outdoors Club
« Reply #3 on: September 10, 2013, 06:24:40 PM »
A naturist walking group, operating in the south of England, the SOC was originally set up for single male naturists, that species that is so discriminated against by clubs, but now caters far any naturists who want to walk with them.

The club runs a programme of 15 to 17 walks each year between April and October mostly mid-week to avoid the majority of clothed visitors to the countryside.

Singles Outdoor Club: http://www.soc-uk.info/

Walking website for SOC: http://www.socwalks.fsnet.co.uk/ this includes the programme and some reports from previous walks.

If anyone is interested in joining up for a walk I will be attending the walks on 17 September (Turville, Buckinghamshire) and 24 September (Hannington, Hampshire).

Have fun,


Ian.

The organisation, of which I am a founding member, and director,  was originally set up by disaffected BN members annoyed that BN (at that time.) made no effort to campaign for the rights of naturists. We would like to think that we are influencing current campaigning policy in BN, and have even taken part in joint projects.

TheFreeRangeNaturist.org

A wonderful site if I do say so myself ;D
Mine. It is a continuing collection of trip reports, informing and encouraging free range naturism. Mostly occurring in the American Southwest, DF and I show you the sights, the hows the why's and daily naturism with few boundaries.
There is a new trip report each week.

Thoughtsonnaturism is a new one for me - brilliant site.  I've just looked at pictures and scanned the odd short article so far but most of them seem to project and honest positive impression of naked people.  There's a bit of an over emphasis on well formed younger people but then, it's nice to see that there's plenty of them that appear to be bona fide naturists.  Some stunning locations.
The expressions on many of the faces are of naive recreation without guile. 

Worth further study.

This short youtube music video is so sweet and candid, a couple of pals in situations that I can relate to:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVdPhv6TIhM

This website I mentioned elsewhere, but is probably more appropriate here, now that I find it. It brings out the simple joy and many aspects of naturism. Along the way there is a sign, or quip about the wisdom of nudity. The draw back is that one might get the impression that most nudity is being practiced and enjoyed by younger women (that's what swiping material from the web will get you). If it was lined up as a slide show, I suspect that it would hypnotize anyone into becoming a free range naturist:

I'm sorry to be disagreeing with a fellow naturist, but I can't let this pass. What you call a "draw back" is completely damning in my mind: this "naked Tao" site is really just an excuse to show pretty girls with their clothes off, and any claims to be following some philosophical path, or representing naturism, are completely hollow. The Internet is full of "naturist" sites that are just like this one, all about conventionally attractive young women. You can call that soft-core porn, or voyeurism, or just an enjoyment of looking at naked women, but whatever name we use, it's clear that the attraction is the babes and nothing else. Out there in the textile world, they just love nudity (oh yes they do!) but it's always pretty young women that they want to see. We claim to be naturists, but if we're still talking about seeing pretty young women, it's hard to say what progress we've made.

It would be an interesting switch to illustrate one of these web pages with real naturists, predominantly middle-aged men as most of us are. Then add some supposedly profound philosophy and see if anyone takes it seriously.

At this stage I suppose I should confess to enjoying looking at pretty women whether clothed or not but I wouldn't bother with such web sites for the purpose.

The website operator collects his material from the web and this of course creates the bias of young nude women. The young men are healthy, too. There aren't many photos of real naturist as you say. After flipping through many pages, I found that the quips quotes etc. do express an inspiring attitude understanding naturism expressing itself wonderfully. The focus of the photos, if you look at the body language and faces, express more than a girl posing. There is joy, sensuality in nature, and various activities that is better when nude, that I identify with. There are many aspects of naturism given. Peppered in with the girls are photos of families, friends and a few older groups. It expresses the act and experience of a naturist, much with photographic art. I don't doubt this persons intent, understanding of naturism and I have enjoyed that. The ratio of pretty girls is only a reflection of pilfering from the net, which is understandable. There are no sexual innuendos, like overt crotch shots or striptease.

I can understand one flipping through a few pages and getting the impression that it is only about the naked chicks. That is just like any book. You may read a few pages, missing the good stuff or general overall. If you change the number on the URL a few times, jumping into various places for a few pages, you'll find a different impression, but still it looks like mostly it is the young women who are having all of this fun. Perhaps when our hosts reach middle age or more, they will keep bagging more Monroes on film. It is not like those many other websites and tumblrs. Its photo content has been selected from what is available. There are over 600 pages of the stuff. There are many artsy photos, too.

Anyway, I enjoyed my time there. My reaction was not getting hot, it was root, root, root for the naturism mostly on the free range.

As Bob frequently says, as long as more people are portrayed as having fun naked it is better in the long run to gain acceptance of that activity.

Mentioning the book analogy is appropriate, JBee. The author of a book or screenplay has no control over how the presentation is interpreted. You throw it out and see what happens.

We can't, nor should we attempt to, narrowly define what enjoying naturism means. Too many different people have differing definitions and opinions.

I have started commenting and sharing occasional nudist posts on my Facebook page.  I share the ones I like on my "Timeline" so my "friends" all get them on their FB page.

I also make political comments that Free people do not have government telling us what to do with our bodies.  Its my way of promoting the idea of legal nudity with those who otherwise would never think about it.

Its another way of letting the world know.
