A podcast about naturism for naturists (nudism and nudists to some people) While we obviously cover issues related to nudity, naturism is about much more than being naked so we cover topics related to self-esteem, body-image, body-acceptance, and living in a more natural way.

    Children and Naturism – Part 1 of 2

    Children and Naturism – Part 1 of 2

    Since the beginning, naturism has been a family movement. Because its adherents believed that all of humanity would benefit, it was natural that children should be included. In Germany, a naturist-focused series of schools was even created by Adolf Koch in the early 20th century. (Körperkulturschule Adolf Koch) More recently, a multitude of scholarly research papers in psychology and sociology suggest that children reared in an atmosphere containing family social nudity benefit from the practice. In this episode we discuss this academic aspect with Mark Storey.

    Naked Age – North American Nudist Pioneers

    This episode of Naked Age explores the parallel paths of two nudist pioneers whose stories take place over seventy years apart. First we look at Ray Connett, an influential figure of early Canadian nudism who helped establish that country’s first national nudist organization. Then we meet Gerardo Cisneros, a Mexican nudism advocate whose hard work and clever initiative has helped bring a budding Mexican nudist movement into full bloom.

    When it all goes wrong

    When it all goes wrong

    For over a century naturism has been continuously misunderstood, misinterpreted, or worse, exploited. When the basic tenets of the movements are forgotten or intentionally ignored it can lead to egregious abuses. Rebekah tells a childhood story which has marked her for life. Yet she remains optimistic that real naturism is a good thing for people. WARNING: This episode contains accounts of sexual abuse which may be upsetting to some listeners.

    Moderating Social Media

    Moderating Social Media

    Most naturists hate social media moderation because they have experience with their posts being censored or their account being suspended. Yet we also want moderation to remove offensive or harassing content. In this episode, we discuss the challenge of moderation with the team that manages the No Tan Lines Facebook group.

Mom & Son ,

Great topics

We are new to naturist life style and we started listen from the beginning of the podcast. It is very informative and enjoyable to listen.

i really like the podcaat:!/@( ,

Good but not for me

Here are ways that nude city’s or community’s are a terrible idea
1. Sanitation tons of germs and bacteria
2. Sexual assault rates go sky high
3. Public sex goes up
This all ads up to if there was a nude community it would be one of the WORST developments in the world
