International definition of naturism:
Naturism is a way of living in harmony with nature, characterized by the practice of nudity in common, whose goal is to promote respect for oneself, respect for others and care for the environment.As mentioned in this definition of the International Naturist Federation, naturism consists in the practice of nudity in a social environment.
This practice is aimed at the comfort of the naked body against natural elements such as air, water and sun. Also, when you think about it, what is more natural and pleasant than being naked to swim or enjoy the sun?Unfortunately, in our so-called “modern” society, nudity is closely associated with sexuality and eroticism. This association is also very exploited by the advertising world. But by abolishing these prejudices and taboos in the face of nudity, naturism allows greater personal fulfillment and incomparable body relaxation. You have to live the experience at least once to understand the development that naturism brings.
Although nudity is the most obvious aspect of naturism, however it is part of a much broader context …
A family movement, humanist and natural.
Restore the rightful place in the body, discover the pleasure of living in harmony with nature, such is the truth of naturism, far from clichés and fantasies. This practice of which nudity is only one of the components, is based on a philosophy of life that advocates tolerance, respect for oneself, others and the environment.
Naturist specificity, which distinguishes us from other outdoor and leisure movements is the practice of nudity. Defining, communicating, talking about naturism is always evoking what our originality is: living naked!
Naturist nudity is collective, healthy and natural. It is practiced in nature. It is a source of pleasure and provides a feeling of freedom.
A collective nudity. For nudists, nudity is lived in groups: men, women, children, adults, young and old, all generations. This collective nudity promotes coexistence, tolerance and social mixing.
