Hi friends,

Buck here with a little essay on natural beauty.

Before I became a nudist and a naturist myself, growing up a textile, I had never heard of the term “naturist”. Well, being a nudist for some time, I really came to discover what naturism really is.

First of all, the root of the word, NATURE. Our human bodies are natural, how we were born, our human nature. Yes, we are obviously nudists, but we naturists are nudists that keep in mind—our naked state is our natural state. It’s not covered up by artificial coverings (a.k.a. clothes), it’s just who we really are. And as we come to respect who we really are, we in turn apply this philosophy as part of our daily lives.
