Sometimes it seems like an endless problem – naturists seems mainly to be male, 45+. Here is why I think that is so.
It seems like a endless problem – naturists seems mainly to be male, 45+. I would love if there were more young people.
I myself is of the male gender just turned 41. I am probably what you would call in between age, I am not one of those you would call “a young naturist”, but I am not one of the old naturists either. I have a lovely wife and a wonderful son, and I love being naked whenever it feels comfortable.
I believe that the great majority of middle- older men in the naturist community. It provides a “bad” spiral where there certainly is some of the young and some women who are scared off. Not that there is anything to be scared of. There are hardly more evil and perverse men among nudists than among other communities.
There are probably many reasons for why there are much more men in naturist societies than a woman – but this is not what I want to discuss in this post. What I want to discuss is why so few young people is a naturist, and why they are scared off Body issues, activities and being part of a group that you feel like you can associate with might be some of the reasons why young people keep away from naturist environments.
I think that many young people prefer to be among other young people, therefore groups like Young Naturist America and DUN in Denmark is good examples of groups for young people. I think that it is a really good thing that they are present. This helps the acceptance of naturism among young people. Unfortunately, there are not that many of these communities as far as I know of and what if you really just want to be among diversities – among young, children, woman, men, disabled. Another thing is that many naturist resorts, naturist camping, and naturist hotels don’t have much for the young.
Maybe we should take a look at what young people want if they want to be a part of some kind of society. Here are my thoughts – they might be totally wrong, but here goes – 4 reasons!
