Understanding nudists

 

It’s difficult to tell whether naturism and the art of public nudity are declining or thriving.

Perhaps it depends where in the world you are.

Naked truth: Aging nudists seek new skin in the game as ranks dwindlereports that “[s]ince 2008, membership in the American Association for Nude Recreation … has dwindled from 50,000 to 35,000″.

But across the Atlantic the BBC ran a story claiming naturism numbers were up in the heatwave. However, Raising a toast to naturism at the Clover Spa & Hotel revealed that “Britain’s first naturist spa hotel”, set up in 2011 when the proprietor identified “a growing tolerance to nudism”, has been granted a liquor licence. Presumably now the “portly middle-aged men, arms dangling at their sides like waxed Neanderthals” can enjoy a tipple while naked.
