Recreational Naturism versus Ethical Naturism

Which term is used depends partially on where you are. In Europe, the term “naturist” is used almost exclusively while “nudist” is often derogatory. In the United States, most people who attend clubs call themselves nudists because they belong to the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) who uses the term “nudist”. Americans who go to free beaches tend to prefer to identify themselves as “naturists” because historically, the Naturist Society (TNS) has been the biggest defender of free beaches in the United States.

So let’s dive into this ‘hidden’ part of the nudist world.

Maybe Google believes that Familu Nudism, as a keyword (as it is called), only attracts the wrong kind of people. And maybe the majority of people that are actually searching for ‘Family Nudism’ are indeed not the right people. We all know that the online world can be rather scary regarding any nudist related subject. As a side effect, we truly understand that a lot of families run away when they see what Google thinks is a good representation of Family Nudism.
