A naturist swim is set to take place in Letchworth this weekend [14 August 2021] – and more than half the tickets have already been sold.
Organisers British Naturists will hold the clothing-free swim at the pool on Saturday evening from 6.30pm to 9pm.
The event is open to both British Naturist members and non-members alike.
Chairman of the eastern region, Robert Finney, told the Comet about the appeal of naturism, and why he thinks swims like these have become more popular.
“It’s one of those subjects that most people don’t talk about,” he said. “But there seems to have been more of an interest in it particularly in the last 15 or 16 months.
“I think it’s because of two things. People are spending more time at home and not out and about, but also people may be re-evaluating their views of what actually matters and what doesn’t.
“It’s so liberating and much nicer to swim without any swimwear. But you also find when you strip people of their clothes they become much friendlier.
“There’s no such thing as designer skin. You don’t know who’s a high court judge and who’s a down and out.
