a single man and I'd like to know if men are allowed to join this
club, and are there any unattached women that might like to meet a
of course men are allowed to join our club and there are some
unattached women who would like to meet male naturists.
However we expect our single males to be dedicated to introducing
women to the joy of naturism as well. If you are a single
male who expects to show up at events and simply find a lady there
waiting for you... well then you probably shouldn't join us.
We've had single males bring one... two or three women to see how
much fun social nudism can be... and never had any women have less
than a wonderful time. So... we expect you to do your part
women choose to participate in social nudism and nude recreation..?
||Because it is fun..?
Seriously... I have found that most
women love it and they find the real joy of actually being a woman once they
allow themselves the freedom
of experiencing social nudism... I know I sure
did..! Not to mention the relaxation...
stress relief... positive body image... body acceptance and self-esteem they quickly learn
to feel from nude recreation.
Most women today have fond
memories of going skinny
dipping or in a spa or hot tub when we where
young and innocent... so it's really not all that new. Social nudism
is becoming very
popular and there are a great many wonderful reasons for women
choosing nude recreation in today's world... including the many health benefits it
offers. There are many places where you can
recapture that innocence... beautiful clothing optional resorts... spas... hot springs... beaches... retreats... bed and breakfast inns...
ocean cruises and even entire nude cities in the World today where you will meet a wide variety of
really wonderful and friendly people... diverse in age as well as
||Is social nudism and nude recreation becoming more accepted by women..?
||Yes... it absolutely is... we think everyone is starting to understand that less is often more..! Social nudism of any sort is not only more accepted... but is now becoming very popular...
and especially with women in the United States. Let's face it... almost all of us today have skinny dipped or gone
nude in a hot tub or spa in mixed company at one time or another and that is social nudism. I am
also quite sure that most of us women felt the joy and
beauty of our womanhood when we did... right..? Women who want to recapture the joy and
excitement of being a woman again... as well as the freedom... innocence... and beauty of
those wonderful experiences... will find many clubs all over the world that offer relaxing... down-to-earth...
casual... safe and comfortable environments in which a lady can feel free to be nude and
even a little devilish at times..!.
||How will I feel on the
first visit to a clothing optional resort or a nudist club like the Diablo
||You will probably feel like nearly all of us... a little apprehensive and nervous at first... and then
after a few minutes you will feel wonderful..! Allot depends on the club and it's members I
think... in our Sun Devil group and the places we visit you will always find very friendly people of all ages enjoying nude recreation in a
fun and secure atmosphere. And of course... there is me... always your happy smiling Sun Devil to make you feel relaxed...comfortable... and very normal being nude.
As a Sun Devil you are accepted for who you are inside... and you will soon learn that any woman who allows herself the personal freedom to enjoy social
nudism quickly develops a healthy body image and has a great deal of self-esteem. Nearly all of the women... as well as many young ladies and even some
gentleman who have ever joined us at one of our events has taken the time to tell me that they felt very comfortable after only a few
||What are the
characteristics of a nudist club..?
||It really does depend on
where you go... but the atmosphere of most nudists clubs and resorts is fun...
wholesome... joyous... exciting and very friendly..! People enjoy everyday activities such as swimming...
hot tubbing... walking... hiking... cycling... tennis... pool...
fishing... jogging... body building... volleyball... sun bathing... socializing and
even dinning in a nice restaurant or having a cocktail and dancing with friends... all in
the nude..! It is truly a wonderful experience for a woman to do any and all of
these things without being encumbered by clothing... and it is my hope that you will all
have the opportunity to try it one day soon and see just how much more
womanly and alive you feel. Most clubs have people who arrange
activities and events much like any nice resort... and anyone who seems to be there
for the wrong reason will be told to leave in very short order. There
are many great nudist clubs... go try one and see for yourself..!
||Who is the naturist society..?
||The Naturist Society - (TNS) is a national organization with members having a
common philosophy... the acceptance of the nude body as good and that we all have the
right to express that belief in an appropriate... natural and non-sexual setting. A
government mandate to is a mandate to wear a symbol of shame...
especially for women..! Within this context... we view anti nudity laws as laws
designed to perpetuate contempt for our bodies. They impose shame and disgrace and
contribute to a feeling of poor body image and lack of self acceptance. We strongly
encourage all Sun Devils... and all nudists or naturists to become members of
The Naturist Society. Anything that we can all do to help promote the
natural joys and health benefits of nudism helps us all..!
||How are women nudists
||Women nudists are not
very different than other women ... other than feeling much more like women... having a great deal of
self-esteem and confidence... and really enjoying the many joys and benefits of womanhood. Maybe we allow ourselves the freedom to relax... enjoy life... have fun and be
a little devilish at times... and maybe we are happier than most other women... but other than
that... we are the same..! In our day to day lives... we are really not different at
all. We are representative of the general public and are from every profession and
every age. Some of us are Republicans... some are Democrats... and some vote
independent. Some of us are married... some are single... some have strong religious
convictions and virtually every denomination is represented. All these diversities
come together... sharing a common philosophy... to raise the level of understanding and
perception of ourselves through clothing-optional living.
||What is the history of nudism..?
certainly not some radical new idea... after all we were all born that
way..! In ancient cultures the Japanese, Romans, Hawaiians, Grecians
and many others commonly practiced non-sexual... social nudism. More recently our
forefathers... both here and in Great Britain... practiced nonchalant nude bathing. Prior to the introduction of the bathing suit (known as the "Prison Suit"
because of its broad stripe design) in 1830 by the Italian immigrant Augustus
public seashore bathing was popularized by King George III (1760-1820) and King George IV
(1820-1830), and by the 1840's nude bathing was popular on Great Britain's beaches.
In the United States,
John Adams, the leader of the 1st and 2nd Continental Congress and the man who proposed
the appointment of George Washington... was known to take time off to skinny-dip...
publicly... in the Potomac River..! Under Queen Victoria's rule (1837-1901) and the
Church of England's concept of decency... body freedom ended. So extreme was it...
that even piano legs were considered indecent enough to be covered.
But in the early 1900's a
rebellion against the Victorian control was underway. Starting on Long Island, New
York... men began to protest the laws which stated that men must always wear clothing to
cover their chests. In the early 1930's men by the thousands protested and went
topless on New York beaches. In 1936 the New York law was changed... allowing men to
be topless. I certainly think it is about time they change the law and allow us
women the same freedom of being topless if we choose to be... in New York as well as every
other place in the world..! The trend towards body acceptance has grown ever
since... the popularity of nudism increases every year... and I ask you... what is more
beautiful than a nude woman..?
popular is nudism in the world today..?
||Very popular... and
growing much more popular among women each and every day. Lets
face it... women are the beautiful and attractive part of our human
species... and men love looking at us. Women really do
enjoy showing off their bodies... and why shouldn't we... it is very normal
and natural... and it feels good... that is just how it
is and how it has always been..! In my country all of the beaches are
clothing optional and have been for hundreds and hundreds of years. Today the nations of
Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Jamaica, The Netherlands,
New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Scotland, the
USSR, Yugoslavia, and many, many others have officially designated clothing optional
beaches. Countries that do not have officially designated clothing optional areas
due to a high level of body shame are Mexico, China, and nearly all of the
Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan along with many others...
and believe this or not... the United States of America... the land of the free..!
Poll after poll shows a
very positive acceptance of nudism and naturism here in the United States as
well as around the world. Being naked is actually fast becoming the
thing to do everywhere... from snow skiing to walking the beach. The
truth is... it is simply fun and it really is quite normal and natural..! But... even
though the public clearly accepts and wants nudism... our government continues to reflect a view
more in line with the Victorian Church of England. Although there are a number of
clothing optional beaches and other places in the United States today... none have official designation and
under Federal Law you are always subject to arrest for indecent exposure..!
||Does nudism have a
value to the individual or to society..?
it does... and
especially for women..! The culture in the United States instills a high degree of
body shame when compared to many other countries... yet it is certainly
nothing like the repression of women in many Islamic countries such as Afghanistan.
Although this conditioning has its
origin in the philosophy of the Puritans... it is today expressed as civil law which
applies to all citizens. This is not without negative consequences. Some
people have been taught such a high degree of body shame that for them going for a
necessary medical exam... such as a pap test or breast exam... is traumatic and some women
avoid these life saving measures altogether.
Our society's mandate that we view our bodies with shame and disgrace has a negative impact upon
our self image. Dr. Alayne Yates, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Arizona,
has shown that in cultures where nudity is common... children mature to be less critical
of bodies in general. Dr. Marilyn Story, Professor of Family Studies at the
university of Northern Iowa, who has done extensive research on nudist families for many
years, states... "Social nudity takes on increased societal... as well as personal...
importance when it is viewed as a significant factor in determining body
self-concept." Additionally... the anthropologist Margaret Mead said that the
acceptance of nudity "would ultimately lead to a decrease in neurosis and certain
types of crime."
Overall... there are definite individual and societal benefits to the acceptance of our bodies. Social
conditioning and laws which perpetuate a sense of body shame and disgrace have very negative consequences... especially to women..!
||About you... are these really your pictures on this site..?
course these are my pictures..! I want to promote social
nudism and the many joys of nudism to women... so I want to show my own positive
acceptance of nudity as well... and I hope many more women will help me by
sending their pictures also..!
||Are the Sun Devil
ladies more nude in the members area..?
||Yes we are... but as I think you
can see... we are not at all uncomfortable being nude in the public
areas of our site. However you will find that nearly all of
our other Sun Devil lady members feel much more freedom to be nude
in the private area's of our site... especially on their members
pages. Remember... there are very few of our lady members
that have any pictures at all in the public area. They
simply feel much more comfortable and relaxed being nude around
friends in the members only area than they do just being nude in
front of the whole world..!
||Are you a nudist or a
naturist and what's the difference..?
||I am a nudist... like
everyone else who enjoys social nudism
today. I enjoy being nude and natural... and I also enjoy my sexuality...
which are beautiful and positive attributes in my opinion. If you asked my husband... he would
tell you that I am just like other women... and I am confident enough to allow
myself the freedom to enjoy my femininity and womanhood..!
Being nude is but a very
small part of a naturists life... everything for them must be completely natural... from
the air they breath to the water they drink. Most exist in the mountains far away
from society and live in cabins they have built by hand using only natural materials from
the surrounding area. They will only drink from a natural spring... eat only what
they have grown or raised... and wouldn't dream of eating processed food of any kind from
a grocery store..! A real naturist does not use electricity... telephone... or any
other modern convenience for that matter. They are usually nude because it is
natural. If they must wear clothing to be accepted somewhere... it would be handmade
and only of natural fibers and never washed in anything other than spring water.
You get the idea... and in our modern world you could probably count all of the true naturists on one hand..!
Unfortunately... many people today call themselves a "naturist" as it is a kinder and gentler way of
saying "nudist"..! So what is the difference..? Today there really
is no difference... however I will say this... we were all born nude and we are all
nudists to one degree or another. I despise people calling nudism a lifestyle... it
is simply a very important part of life itself..! So once again I will tell you...
if you must give me a title other than a woman... I am a "nudist"... and I am
certainly not ashamed to say it just that way..!
||I want to visit a nude
beach with my wife... but I am afraid I will get an erection... and what should
I do if I do get one..?
|| Many men
have this fear... but I really don't think you should worry about it... as it
probably is not going to
happen..! Generally nudists always carry a towel with them... it is a matter of etiquette...
so if you do
get an erection and you are in a place where you feel uncomfortable
just cover yourself with the towel.
Rest assured... nude beaches are not generally a sexual place... and usually
after only a few minutes you will forget that everyone around you is
even nude. It is highly unlikely you will end up getting an erection because you will be enjoying
the sun and the beach... and it just normally doesn't happen. But like I
said before... if you find yourself getting sexually excited and it does
happen... so what... erections are quite normal... but if it happens in an inappropriate place simply cover it up..!
go to nude beaches with my girlfriend I get an erection. Not from
looking at other women... but from other men looking at her. Is this
normal? I often just sit and watch her playing in the sea with others
and I'm overcome with excitement to see guys staring or chatting with her...
or even just going near her. Its nice to have these feelings but I
feel they are out of control at the wrong times.
||It is very normal for a male to get
excited when other men find his wife or girlfriend attractive. If your
wife or girlfriend is confident... relaxed... playful or even just
friendly... men and women will almost always be attracted to her. This is
what my nudist club is all about actually... because everyone loves a woman who
is "confident" in herself... especially when she allows herself the
freedom to play and have fun as if she doesn't have a care in the
world... and if she is nude it is all the more intriguing..! Quite
naturally men and women will want to look and gather around to admire and
experience the joy and beauty she exhibits as a woman. When this
happens... it will make the lady feel more like a woman than she has ever felt
before... and it really is the ultimate compliment to her male partner I think.
That is very exciting... and the excitement of it is giving you an erection... which
as I said is completely normal. What is probably even more exciting to you
however... is that for the first time you are living life the way it was meant
to be... and guess what... when the two of you get home you can really enjoy all that
excitement together..! After awhile social nudism will feel normal to you...
and you will not have to worry about getting an erection and feeling out of
control. So... just as I said in the question above... enjoy... and if you
get an erection in an inappropriate
place simply cover it up with a towel.
||I told my boyfriend I
want to go to nude beaches where I have gone
in the past. He is reluctant to accompany me. What
should I do?
||Tell him you enjoy social nudism and you want to go to the beach
and that if he doesn't want to be nude
that is perfectly all right with you, but you want him to accompany you when
you go. If he feels uncomfortable at first... he will probably
soon realize that nude
beaches don't live up to the stereotypical perfect body ideal that many
people have. It is important to communicate with him and let him know
this is something you really enjoy. Let him know you honestly want him to join you... clothed or naked...
and that you are going to go with or without him. If he won't accompany you...
then simply make it very clear that you will be asking someone
who will... and then be sure and do it. Then... go to the beach and
enjoy yourself... it will be good for you and whoever joins you..!
||I'm a young woman who enjoys being naked
at home and don't mind my friends and family seeing me nude, but I'm
embarrassed about other people seeing me naked
in public. How do I know if I look good enough to go to a nude beach?
||Every woman's body is
beautiful... there are no two the same... and no such thing as a perfect
body. One of the first things you notice when visiting
a nude beach is just how wonderful you feel after only a few minutes.
Nearly every woman finds that they feel much better about themselves and
their body image after visiting a nude beach.
Nude beaches have nothing to do
with how you look... they are about enjoying nature and appreciating the freedom
and the joy of being nude. Just go... then you will know
right..? I am sure you will feel fantastic about you... your experience...
your body... and you will feel more like a woman than you have in years..!
||Me and my husband would like to go to a nude
beach or a nudist resort... but we aren't
sure if we should bring our children. Have you seen any families where you go..?
||Naturism is a wonderful family
activity and is extremely healthy for children. Me and my husband
often visit nudist beaches... nudist clubs... and nudist resorts where we always see and meet
great children ranging from infants to teenagers. They play together nude and enjoy the beach
or resort facilities just as children do anywhere
else... having a fantastic time together. If you want to learn to be a nudist
just watch the children... and just like with operating a computer... they will show
you the way..! If you are unsure... contact or research your destination before you arrive.
The Diablo Sun Devils for example... is a family oriented singles and couples
club... and children are welcome at many of our nudist events.
is the best Web Site of any Nudist or Naturist Club that I know of and I
completely support your efforts to help women enjoy naturism. Is there
some way I can help you... other than being involved as a member..?
||Yes you can help our cause
without being a member. It costs
money to promote and maintain our club as well as our Web site and it seems
we are always running short..! Any cash
donation... no matter how small... is sincerely appreciated. And... if you donate $25 or more I
will send you a lovely photo of me suitable for framing which is personalized with your name and signed by me to show just how much
I really appreciate your help..!
||After being introduced to
naturism this year I learned to appreciate my body which has
brought me a new found happiness. I want to share this
feeling with other women like me so they will join us... how can I
your friends and then send a few every time you
visit our site and get the word out to women everywhere because as
you have learned... women really love naturism... they just need a
little encouragement to get out there and try it..!
||Hi Vera, I'm from
South America and even though I love to be nude almost anywhere my
family says I should not because this is simply not part of our
culture. Are there any Latin American nudists that you know
course there are... women from every culture and race on the
planet love to take off their clothes and be nude... and there are
a great many beautiful and very sexy Latino Sun Devils right here
in our club... Adriana... Arianna...Candy... and Doris... just to
name a few. It
seems to me they are far more comfortable with nudity and their sexuality than
American Women. One of the
reasons I started this club was because I could hardly believe how
up tight American women are about their bodies. I had always
been told American Women were the sexiest women in the
world. When I came to the United States I was shocked
as I found them to be the exact opposite. So be like the
Brazilian ladies and let it all hang out my dear..!
If you have a question... click
