Young Nudism is a lifestyle of Young Nudist professes that with the absence of clothing one can socialize in non-sexual ways. Examples of nudist behavior include, skinny dipping, nude resort activities, as well as clothing optional beaches. Although Naturism is the modem day term for Young Nudist , both are used interchangeably. One might ask, what is the difference between nudity and nudism? According to Fred llfeld Jr. and Roger Lauer, nudity, in general, refers to ‘ he absence of clothing,” whereas young nudism itself is a social activity comprised of organized groups of people.
The term used in modem society today is Naturist. According to young nudist is: “The practice of going nude socially: that is in mixed groups of both sexes and all ages, for the sake of health and recreation or other circumstances which makes it convenient and pleasant to do so; always provided that those who are nude do not expose themselves to view of those who are not nudists or who would be offended thereby.”
In the United States, there are Young Nudist currently exists varying perceptions about Social Young Nudist. Some consider it a form of expression, while others find the behavior deviant . The article focuses on a specific group known as the Young Naturists, the present day term for Nudists, a social culture that engages in complete nudity in a community setting. I chose this topic in an effort to increase awareness of this culture and to expel some of the misconceptions which have existed for many years. I have always been curious about this lifestyle so when the opportunity arose for me to attend a Naturist resort, I couldn’t resist.
Naturists claim the many benefits of nudity enhance their overall health and therefore are conducive to a wholesome way of living, positively affecting one’s mental, spiritual, and physical well being. Though they find their attempts at existence and acceptance being challenged by influential, pre- existing, negative ideals about the naked human body, this culture continues to attract new members. This has resulted in the need for more resorts and other activities to support this lifestyle. Included in my paper are scholarly studies, interviews, and personal observations and experiences regarding Social Nudism as it exists in the United States today.

THE YOUNG NUDIST SOCIETY ;
The Young Nudist Society is an organization that promotes clothing-optional recreation for the benefit
of gaining a better understanding and acceptance of one’s body. It strongly opposes the idea of exploiting the naked human body for entertainment or sexual purposes. According to the Society’s handbook: ”Naturism is a way of life characterized by the practice of social nudity, with the aim of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment.” Founded by TNS Lee Baxandall,

Individuals Who Engage in Young Nudist/Naturism
What types of people engage in young Nudist /Naturism? The answer to this question is rather simple. All types of people, including married couples, families and singles, from various backgrounds, social classes (white collar, blue collar), and professions (Physicians, bankers, teachers, lawyers, postal workers etc.), enjoy social nudism. Most Naturists are well-educated, registered voters and have strong religious views. Although all Naturists
Share the common beliefs in Young Nudist that the human body is dignified and worthy of respect, the benefits of nudism varies from person to person. For some, nudism is a form of relaxation and stress relief in a natural state in a natural surrounding allowing for a deeper connection with the earth. Others experience improvement in self-esteem and body image and discover that social relationships are more significant because they are based on character instead of wealth, social status, or physical appearance. Whatever the reasons for becoming a Young Nudist all agree that they have the right to be nude at appropriate times and places, whether in private or public settings.
To date, participation in social nudism seems to have attracted more men then women as measured by most surveys concerning social nudity. In most cases, naked men currently outnumber naked women on clothing optional beaches, and, as previously stated in the 2000NEF/Roper Poll conducted by the Naturist Education Society, the approval for nude beaches still ranks higher among males then females.
Although there are several elements influencing social Young Nudist , one cannot assume that these elements are solely responsible for each individuals views. During the course of our lives we encounter many people and experiences which contributes to our awareness in life thereby modifying our old beliefs from childhood. Often times, our earliest religious teachings contributes to our attitudes regarding Young Nudist and the naked human body, referring to the “fall” of Adam and Eve, whereby sin, guilt, and shame, were first cast upon humans.
Being Catholic, I can say that I have had my share of experiences regarding, sin, guilt, and shame. I can recall, throughout my childhood and teenage years, going to confession every week in an attempt to free my conscience from guilt and what I thought at the time were sins. Since then, thank goodness, I learned that I am not a bad person andcan actually laugh about some of my reasons feeling the need to confess. However, negative attitudes about the naked human body still exist today because of some religious teachings.
For example, in most religions, premarital sex still carries the stigma of being “wrong, and dirty” resulting in shame and guilt for many people choosing to cross over boundaries by engaging in the act. The message being conveyed here is that nudity and sex go hand and hand, and is something to be ashamed of, while ignoring the positive emotional an spiritual bonds so many couples base their relationships on
I felt emotionally disturbed after I left the Young Nudist camp, for about two days. I needed to talk about it and process it verbally to try to understand what I was feeling. Many of my friends were surprised to learn that I, who has been a life drawing model for 25 years and recently returned to the job after a 20 year hiatus, had a challenging time. Why? What was going on?
There is a huge difference between taking off my clothing and sitting on the modeling stand (enables artists to learn how to draw the human form) and hanging out with a shit ton of naked people. I am the only one nude on the modeling stand. I look out onto completely clothed people and I observe them. They certainly look at me, but they are looking at the shadow the light makes on my skin, the way my hip curves, the shape of my eye. I don’t dwell on the fact that I am clothed and they are not. So someone said, “Oh, so you have a difficult time with everyone ELSE being naked? “ Yes I suppose I did.
