Why do you think so many people have left the main organizations in recent years?
The future of nudism is in public lands; beaches, lakes, rivers, parks and hiking trails. It’s in public accomodations; swimming pools, bicycle paths, jogging trails, picnic areas, campgrounds and all the other places where textiles are claiming 100% of the space and refusing to share it with anyone.
The day of the clubs is past. What’s so great about going to a remote location and hiding behind a high fence? How does this help anyone’s self esteem?
I think the main organizations could see a great revival if they turned the clubs loose and became proactive on behalf of their members. It’s all about people, not clubs. They could start by addressing any/all of those things mentioned above. How about pushing for designated hours for nude use at all public swimming pools for a start and moving relentlessly forward from there
Was this answer helpful?
British Naturism – the UK’s national organisation – have long since represented the individual Naturist, organising events in various, normally ‘textile’, venues all over the country, as well as campaigning to keep or create Naturist beaches, swims, etc. We spend a lot of time and effort defending individual Naturists against unwarranted legal action or against the prejudice of neighbours, local councils, etc. We HAVE been pushing for nude use of swimming pools, but there is no single point of contact to achieve this in ALL pools.
Yes, there are still traditional Naturist clubs affiliated to us and gaining some benefits from being so, but our main emphasis is now on the individual Naturist. I am not the only example of a member of the voluntary committee that runs BN who is not a member of any landed club…
Sadly there seems to be an attitude amongst some Naturists that they don’t need a national organisation, so they don’t bother to support us. What they fail to realise that we are constantly fighting government reports, legislation and general attitudes that constantly threaten the freedom they enjoy. The more members we have the better we can do it, not only because with more members we will have more money to spend on it, but also because with more members we get more clout.
Who can afford nudist resorts? $28 a day (in Canada). Give me a break! Nudist organizations can give a nudist a small price break (very small), if you can even get in being of the male sex.
I support the work they do to create awareness of nudism, but that’s about it. For that purpose I believe belonging to a “Nudist Organization” is still a good idea.
It can be:
Poor treatment for singles
No activities for singles to mingle.
No way to connect on & off site.
Price to join
No benefits IE join & get 3 months off etc
Have to expand into more
Activities for families, couples & singles
Host Membership drives: the top group gets the highest honor for the Most Members for 1 year Gained into Organz>
Build more camps?? IE reuse idle acerage or BLM land in the US.
Host events IE Art galleries, music, photos etc?
Dont abuse Guests.
& much more.
Make guests want to join Organz & want to come back.
Do Background checks prior arrival IF possible
Smash myths etc keeping the Nudist Image in the dark IE bad side.
Estd FZ: Family Zones for families alone IF warranted.
Diversify with Waterpark??
expand Sports & Games.
