A sad fact about society is that nudism continues to be associated with perversion especially in cities. That said however, if you live in a coastal city it is not unexpected to see very scantily clad individuals walking along the promenade or beach and even entering bars and shops along the sea front. However someone such as the London Naturist is limited where they might follow their choice of activity. Yet the true naturist is willing to compromise and will follow their pursuit where it does the least harm.
The reason why individuals take up naturism is a personal matter to do with being in harmony with their bodies rather than for any sinister motivation. A dedicated London Naturist will likely tell you that psychologically naturism provides them with a sense of well-being. Being prepared to show yourself without the protection of clothing might initially seem odd, but doing so could be a means by which individual’s in tune with their bodies attempt to show that they have nothing to hide. The term ‘what you see is what you get’ springs to mind in the sense that people do use clothes to project an image about themselves that may be false, while nudity helps prevent that from occurring. It may also be that by removing our clothes we make our true identity more accessible to others, something many people would prefer did not happen. Exposure of our true selves may be the route needed to relieve the stresses we build up within ourselves on a daily routine, simply because of the clothes that we wear. For example a soldier wears a uniform and behaves as expected of him in that uniform while a judge wears a different uniform he is still expected to behave in line with the clothes that he is wearing. For both individuals as is the case with many other occupations even off duty or after work a soldier and judge will be expected to behave in line with their employment. Yet should individuals from either of these two occupations attend say a London Naturist gathering it would be one of the few times that they would actually be released from the expectancy of their ‘uniforms’.
The growth of Naturist clubs UK suggests that more and more people are discovering that the naked lifestyle is a real option while at the same time discovering what it really means to relax nude and how this is beneficial.
