Here’s a good article, with video, about a National Geographic program about social nudity. Filmed at Lake Como, Fl., it’s pretty fair and is especially useful for newcomers or those interested in the nudist/naturist lifestyle.
Unfortunately, the video portrays us as mostly retirement age people with a propensity for outdoor sports and silly parties; which is true to some degree. A safe place to live where the grandkids can visit and everybody’s naked seems fine to a lot of us, but doesn’t paint a very exciting picture to potential younger folks. But to portray us as otherwise might be seen as a bit disingenuous also. Were it filmed at a beach full of nude hardbodies it would have been equally inaccurate. It’s awfully hard to explain how both extremes can exist together to someone who sees bodies only as objects to be desired and not simply as, well, skin-covered people!
It’s a good effort and we wish more of the same would pop up in the mainstream. Even better if they appeared without the tag “TABOO!” attached!
