A naturist’s view on nudism. (And naturism!)
Nudism. Naturism.
Is there a difference? I know that in most of the US of A the words are used interchangeably.

I also know that in Europe, for instance, the two words are used differently. Naturism appeared after nudism. I’ve been thinking about those two words recently.

Nudist or Naturist?

Thoughts on the difference

Naturist bowlersNudism. The word has ‘nude’ as its base. Being nude. Like the people in the image on the right, playing bowling, having a clothes free, good time.

A nudist prefers social nudity within an enclosed private space with no fear of prying eyes or the law. Private resorts or with activities provided by nudist organizations is also something that is enjoyed. Continued…Read full original article…
