What are Naturist Clubs?

Naturist clubs are usually in discreet locations scattered around the country that allow people to socialise in nude recreation with others who prefer not to wear clothing for swimming, sunbathing, camping at volleyball etc.

When you arrive at a naturist club you will usually find it is very hidden away in some rural location, it has a long driveway that leads onto reception where you sign in the day or weekend with your details. They usually ask for your BN (British Naturism) number along with your drivers licence for age ID so so they know who you are. Then you are greeted with the other guests, who, if it’s a lovely warm day will most likely be wearing no clothes, and it’s expected that you eventually follow suit.

When going around a naturist club it’s expected that you carry a towel for sitting down anywhere, including the sauna, or for if you feel the need to cover anything up. Most naturist wear scandals of flip flops, which look better on you when your naked then trainers, and some like to wear a bum-back to keep money for the bar to make up for the lack of pockets.

What is Naturism?

Basically, naturism (or nudism as it is sometimes called) is the enjoyment of everyday activities but without clothing. Good examples would be swimming, sunbathing, going to the beach, sports, and sauna.  Naturists believe that the human body is not offensive and that many activities lend themselves to such a lifestyle.  There are of course other activities that are not necessarily naturist friendly and in these cases naturist wear clothing in the same way as everybody else just as if it is cold we also dress.

How do I get to a Naturist Club?

Getting to a naturist club is usually quite difficult unless you have a car as they are out in the countryside most of the time, so if you don’t drive you are likely going to need a taxi to get you to the door. I have done this many times, no need to be embarrassed to say where you are going, it’s a more interesting journey for the driver anyway.

Why would you go to a naturist club?

They offer a place for like-minded people to socialise together without it bothering others that may prefer not to see you with your clothes off. There are very few places where you can spend full days at a time walking around, swimming, socialising in the buff, and for many this way they get to fulfill their need to feel the sun and wind on their whole body. It’s a great and freeing feeling you don’t otherwise get by just going to a regular holiday where you have to wear clothes when it’s a baking hot day. Not that we have many of them in Britain, but when we do get a lovely hot day, why not make the most of it and not have tan lines?

When do you go to a Naturist Club?

Well you can go to a naturist club time, even in winter, many clubs have indoor facilities you can enjoy year round, but for most they would rather go when it’s warmer and can make better use of the club and be able to walk around without freezing. There is naturally a season for going, which is basically running while it’s warm and weather permitting enough that you would want to be naked outside. There are naturist who have a caravan on the club grounds and make a thing of living there for most if not all of the year and treat it like home and look after the club while they are there.

If you want to go to a club when there is something on, it’s a good idea to look on their website to see what events are going on and it’s more likely you will meet others and make friends. There are occasionally events designed for women and for young naturist too so that they bring those demographics together, making it more welcoming and inviting.

Who goes to Naturist Clubs?

Well anyone really, families, couples, men, sometimes women but not as often as clubs would like. The vast majority of naturist are makes and middle aged or retired, so clubs love seeing younger people going, and some want ‘couples only’ to balance the numbers. It can be said that this is unfair, it’s their way of creating a good balance, as if there are too many men then it will put women off entirely.
