The Naturist Society:
June 17th-19th we went to the yearly Naturist Society (TNS) Eastern Gathering that took place at a big campground in northern PA. It was our first time attending this event alongside a couple hundred folks, and we had a pretty great time.
This week long assembly consists of group discussions and seminars on various naturist / nudist matters and in addition enjoyable leisure activities which include the dances at night, a tye-expiring session, and swimming and kayaking at the huge lake. The food was okay and served 3 times/day in a huge hall. We tented again, but additionally, there are cottages. On our first night, there was a talent show of diverse acts, of which my favorite was the two-man duet with “Enrique Iglesias” and “Whitney Houston.” It was followed by Oneg Shabat (the Jewish welcoming ceremony of the Sabbath) with several people and a pajama-themed dance party. (I thought the Jewish Sabbath thing was actually arbitrary, though it really is a Jewish camp.)
On Saturday night it was a Halloween theme dance with some entertaining costumes. All in all there very few individuals in their 20s/30s, but this is not an occasion made for young folks. (Young folks do not desire a workshop on how to use their iPhone for example.)
Yet that is not to say there weren’t a lot of fascinating folks to meet and talk to, such as those who are involved in the Naturist Action Committee, and we weren’t disappointed with the NAC’s seminars and others about naturism. We attended conversations about children and naturism, “making waves” with NAC and on the future of naturism. Questions of the role of young folks in naturism came up. ie, Why do young folks seem to be losing in the movement? How do we reach out to them? These are questions we’ve also had to ask ourselves!
If you’ve been a naturist for a long time, would you believe young people are missing? It was said that even those people who are introduced to naturism when they are young appear to take a break starting with the school years up to their 30s, and then some end up going back to it (at least we hope they do.) But are there plenty of young naturists out there? Does anyone know of any faculty besides http://nudismphotos.net/?p=164 that’s or had nonsexual naked parties? I’m wondering if naturism has almost any presence at many colleges
