The term may also refer to a lifestyle based on personal, family, or social nudity. It may be practiced individually, within a family, socially, or in public. At one end of the spectrum are the nudists who just enjoy a nude life style, and at the other are the naturists, who have deeply held beliefs and see communal nudity as just one of many important principles. The naturist philosophy has several sources, many of which can be traced back to early 20th century health and fitness philosophies in Germany and England , although the concepts of returning to nature and creating equality have much deeper roots.
Several other terms "social nudity", " public nudity ", " skinny dipping ", "sunning", and "clothes-free" have been proposed as alternative terms for naturism, but none has found the same widespread public acceptance as the older terms "naturism" and in much of the United States "nudism". Many contemporary naturists and naturist organisations feel that the practice of social nudity should be asexual. For various social, cultural, and historical reasons the lay public, the media, and many contemporary naturists and their organisations often oversimplify the relationship between naturism and sexuality.
Current research has begun to explore this complex relationship. The usage and definition of these terms varies geographically and historically. Nudism is the act of being naked , while naturism is a lifestyle which at various times embraced nature, environment, respect for others, self-respect, crafts, healthy eating, vegetarianism, teetotalism, non-smoking, yoga, physical exercise and pacifism as well as nudity.
In naturist parlance, textile or textilist is a non-naturist person, non-naturist behaviour or non-naturist facilities. Textilist is said to be used interchangeably, but no dictionary definition to this effect exists, nor are there any equivalent examples of use in mainstream literature such as those for textile.
The opposite is clothing compulsory ; that is, prohibiting nudity. Adjectival phrases clothes free and clothing free prescribe where naturism is permitted in an otherwise textile environment, or define the preferred state of a naturist. There is a large amount of shared history and common themes, issues and philosophy, but differences between these separate movements remain contentious.
Many people are often nude in the privacy of their home or garden, either alone or with members of the family; naturists normally refer to them as at-home-nudists or closet-nudists. This may be occasional nudity or as a naturist lifestyle. There are differences of opinion as to whether, and if so to what extent, parents should appear naked in front of their children, and whether children should be nude within the home in the view of their family as well as visitors. This has attracted a great deal of academic study.
The study found that there was no significant difference between what was reported by men and by women with respect to frequency of nudity in the home. Gordon and Schroeder in reported that parental nudity varies considerably from family to family. They say that "there is nothing inherently wrong with bathing with children or otherwise appearing naked in front of them", noting that doing so may provide an opportunity for parents to provide important information.
They note that by ages 5 to 6 children begin to develop a sense of modesty, and recommend to parents who wish to be sensitive to their children's wishes that they limit such activities from that age onwards.
Barbara Bonner in cautioned against nudity in the home if children exhibit sexual play of a type that is considered problematic. In a review of the literature, Paul Okami concluded that there was no reliable evidence linking exposure to parental nudity to any negative effect.
Smith and Sparks in their study on the effects of social nudity on children conclude that "the viewing of the unclothed body, far from being destructive to the psyche, seems to be either benign and totally harmless or to actually provide positive benefits to the individuals involved.
The rhetoric of the nudism and anti-nudism movements emphasizes freedom from many of the normal constraints which regulate human interaction in nudist settings, although for different reasons. Using data from French and German beaches, this hypothesis was tested using five different indicators.
As a subculture, nudists would appear to differ from nonnudists only in their propensity to like to sunbathe in the nude. Their nude status would appear to have none of the de-inhibiting effects often attributed to nudism. By contrast, clear cultural differences between German and French cultures are shown consistent with Hall's high-low context distinction and the Francoeur 's hot-cool sexuality continuum.
At naturist organised events or venues clothing is usually optional, except by swimming pools or sunbathing lawns where complete nudity is expected, weather permitting. This rule is sometimes a source of controversy among some naturists. Staff at a naturist facility are usually required to be clothed due to health and safety regulations.
Facilities for naturists are classified in various ways. A landed or members' naturist club is one that owns its own facilities, while non-landed or travel clubs meet at various locations, such as private residences, swimming pools, hot springs, landed clubs and resorts, and rented facilities. In either case, they can determine membership criteria and the obligations of members. This usually involves sharing work necessary to maintain or develop the site.
The international naturist organizations were mainly composed of representatives of landed clubs. A holiday centre is a facility that specializes in providing apartments, chalets and camping pitches for visiting holidaymakers. The center is run commercially, and visitors are not members and have no say in the management.
Holiday centers can be quite small, just a couple of hectares or large occupying over hectares. Some holiday centres allow regular visitors to purchase their own chalets, and generations of the same families will visit each year. A naturist resort is, to a European, an essentially urban development where naturism is the norm.
In US usage, a naturist resort can mean a holiday centre. The abbreviation is widely recognised all over Europe and often found on informal signs indicating the direction to a remote naturist beach. In some European countries, such as Denmark,  all beaches are clothing optional, while in others like Germany and experimentally in France,  there are naturist sunbathing areas in public parks, e.
Naturism encourages a healthy life style, and many naturist clubs at times organize and encourage members to take part in local and international sport events and competitions. From Woodstock to Edinburgh , and Nambassa in the southern hemisphere communal nudity is commonly recorded at music and counterculture festivals. The series of s Nambassa hippie festivals held in New Zealand is a further example of non-sexualized naturism.
A few camps organize activities in the nude, including the famous  oil wrestling by camp Gymnasium. Nudist festivals are held to celebrate particular days of the year, and in many such events nude bodypainting is also common, such as Neptune Day Festival held in Koktebel , Crimea to depict mythological events;   the Solstice Cyclists nudist events celebrating the summer solstice held in Fremont, Seattle, United States; the Naked Pumpkin Run held in U.
The prevalence of naturism tends to increase during the summer months especially when the temperature is higher with some regions experiencing first-time naturists and people who have transitioned to becoming a naturist. Nudity in social contexts has been practised in various forms by many cultures at all time periods. It is difficult to nominate exactly when naturism started as a movement. The earliest known naturist club in the "western" sense of the word was established in British India in The commune was based in Matheran and had just three members at the beginning; Crawford and two sons of an Anglican missionary, Andrew and Kellogg Calderwood.
In , a series of philosophical papers was published in Germany by Dr. Heinrich Pudor , under the pseudonym Heinrich Scham, who coined the term Nacktkultur. In he went on to write a three volume treatise with his new term as its title, which discussed the benefits of nudity in co-education and advocated participating in sports while being free of cumbersome clothing.
Germany published the first journal of nudism between and The wide publication of those papers and others, contributed to an explosive worldwide growth of nudism, in which nudists participated in various social, recreational, and physical fitness activities in the nude.
The first organized club for nudists on a large scale, Freilichtpark Free-Light Park , was opened near Hamburg in by Paul Zimmerman. They became convinced of the importance of natural foods and the natural environment on human well-being and health.
They named this concept French : naturisme. The profound effect of clean air and sunlight on human bodies became evident to them and so nudity became a part of their naturism. Naturism had many different philosophical sources and means many things to different people. In , the INF defined naturism as "a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of social nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment".
In the 4th century BC, Alexander the Great encountered, in India, wandering groups of naked holy men whom he dubbed the naked philosophers.
Gr gymnos : naked; sophist : knowledge. The philosopher Onesicritus investigated their beliefs and lifestyle. Pyrrho the Sceptic was impressed and incorporated nudity into his philosophy. The Gymnosophists were Hindus , but Jain and Ajivika monks practiced nudity as a statement that they had given up all worldly goods.
Nudity was not a new concept to the Greeks as the Olympic Games founded in BC were exclusively male and nude events. Historically, the Adamites , a Gnostic sect, practiced religious nudism. A religious sect in Canada that immigrated from Russia, the Sons of Freedom , went so far in the s s as to publicly strip in mass public demonstrations to protest against government policies which were meant to assimilate them.
Although beliefs vary, a common theme is that much of Christianity has misinterpreted the events regarding the Garden of Eden , and God was displeased with Adam and Eve for covering their bodies with fig leaves.
The first English naturists adopted the name Gymnosophy as a thinly disguised euphemism for their pastime. The English Gymnosophical Society was formed in and became the New Gymnosophy Society in ; they purchased land at 'Bricketts Wood' to become Britain's first nudist colony.
One of the first members was Gerald Gardner , who in established the 'Five Acres Club' nearby, ostensibly as a nudist club, but as a front for Wiccans , as witchcraft was illegal in England until The Digambar , one of the two main divisions of the Jain religion of India, remain skyclad , or naked, though generally it is practiced by males. Wiccans have adopted this wording and some practice their rituals skyclad. It is generally agreed by naturist organisations that eroticism and blatant sexuality have no place in naturism and are, in fact, antithetical to its ideals.
Never before did I get so close to Nature; never before did she come so close to me Nature was naked, and I was also Sweet, sane, still Nakedness in Nature! Is not nakedness indecent? No, not inherently. It is your thought, your sophistication, your fear, your respectability, that is indecent.
There come moods when these clothes of ours are not only too irksome to wear, but are themselves indecent. Henry David Thoreau , In wildness is the preservation of the world. We cannot adequately appreciate this aspect of nature if we approach it with any taint of human pretense.
It will elude us if we allow artifacts like clothing to intervene between ourselves and this Other. To apprehend it, we cannot be naked enough. This movement was based on the French concept of joie de vivre , the idea of reveling freely in physical sensations and direct experiences and a spontaneous approach to life.
Sunlight has been shown to be beneficial in some skin conditions and enables the body to make vitamin D ,  but with the increased awareness of skin cancer , wearing of sunscreen is now part of the culture.
The World Naked Bike Ride WNBR is an international clothing-optional bike ride and exercise in public nudity, that has developed outside the organised naturism movement.
Participants plan, meet and ride together en masse on human-powered transport the vast majority on bicycles , but some on skateboards and inline skates , to "deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world". The WNBR shares some aspects of the philosophy of naturism in that it promotes a return to healthy exercise in unpolluted air at the same time promoting positive body image.
