Do you or someone you love enjoy hanging out pantsless? Do you find a lack of pants to be a superpower rather than an inhibitor to your success? Or maybe you’re not even sure what a naturist really looks like, but you’re tired of people asking why you or your partner are always running around half-naked?

Mandy Zelinka is the Skinny Dippers Club founder, a safe community for people to hang out in – without pants or bras or whatever; clothing is optional. You can subscribe to this podcast and our blog over at www.SkinnyDippersClub.com

I have never felt so comfortable in my skin since taking the plunge into naturism. I’ve never felt so body-positive, and now I want everyone to join me. So thank you for being here!

    Let us Show you around our Intentional Living Community + Naturist Documentary!

    Welcome to the Naturist Podcast!

    Jeremy and I live in a clothing-optional intentional (tiny) living community on 40 acres 45 minutes outside of Seattle. It’s bizarre! And weird! And totally awesome. 
    But the SUPER interesting thing about where we live: it’s a 501c(7) Social Club.
    We live at a Clothing-Optional Social Club + Intentional Living Community. How rad is that?
    Jeremy is head of the Forestry Committee and I’m the head of the Park Planning Committee.
    Let us show you around!
     ///
    In our first of two documentary episodes, We hit up Oregon Hot Springs stopping in Bend, OR along the way.
    We talk about the Skinny Dippers Community we’ve built and how it has helped Jeremy thrive and survive PTSD. 
    We hit up our first KOA where Jeremy talks about the meditative quality of camp cooking and what Anthony Bourdain means to him. He goes on to discuss the need for more mental health role models and his experience with an on-the-job railroad fatality that started him down the path of helping others survive and thrive living with PTSD. 
    In episode two, we head to Thermopolis, Wyoming starting in the Oregon Badlands. Will we run out of gas? Tune in to find out!

    Sex and Body Positivity

    Sex and Body Positivity

    We read Three Skinny Dipper Club Community Member Essays and Discuss!
    We hear from a
    Body Positive/Sex-positive gay man 
    Jeremy identified with this essay as he first experienced nude spaces in Seattle with a group of men, most of whom identified as gay or bi.
    Nudist sex-positive couple living in the post-religious stage of their life now.
    Mandy really identified with their essay as Mandy was raised with a Lutheran Mother.
    Queer/Poly Naturist 
    Great essay on consent - this one hit Mandy and Jeremy close to home and so we wanted to close with her essay.
    Enjoy!

    Jeremy’s Solo Trip to the Dominican Republic

    Jeremy’s Solo Trip to the Dominican Republic

    A few years back, when Jeremy was a nudist and I was not, he really wanted to go to this nude place in the DR.
    He literally threw $600 at me and took off as fast as he could when I told him to just go and have his spiritual awakening by himself. (I spent it all on edibles.)
    Grab a beverage and enjoy this delightful audio vacation!

    Public lands: How to do the research to know where you can be naked

    Public lands: How to do the research to know where you can be naked

    We’ve had a lot of new folks in our community that are newbs and we want to help you out so you don’t get arrested!
     
    So, how do I know if it’s legal to be nude on public lands? Well, that’s not the easiest question to answer without research.
     
    LISTEN TO THIS IMPORTANT HALF HOUR EPISODE
     
    One of the things I love about our community is the spirit of helping other people out. Recently we had someone ask about the laws in the state of Arkansas. With a little help from our network of Skinny Dipper friends, we quickly discovered that laws around public nudity in Arkansas are some of the most restrictive in the US.

    How Our Diplomatic Trip to China is Shaping the Mission of the Global Naturist Alliance

    How Our Diplomatic Trip to China is Shaping the Mission of the Global Naturist Alliance

    In this episode, we talk about how racism and homophobia is embedded into so many institutions and the idea that it’s like baking a cake with salt instead of sugar. It just simply doesn’t work and you have to throw it out. 
    We are investing our time in recruiting talent to lead the Global Naturist Alliance which will set the mission, vision, and values of the naturist community worldwide. It will have a Social Justice Arm to it that we haven’t yet seen in most organizations and associations.
     
    We threw out the old recipe and are creating a new one. 
    we will fight for
    Safe Space and Events
    Equity and Social Justice
    The Earth and Its Inhabitants
    Free and Accessible Public Lands
    Online and Offline Nude Legislation and Censorship
     
     
    “I want to break the walls down.
    I want this organization to feel how I feel.
    That sense of relief
    To just be me.”

    What kind of language and imagery are you using that may be triggering or off-putting?
