“Nudism will not be Facebooked” – Guest writer @nudistnerd /r/nudism redditor
We’re given 24 golden hours everyday but mere nanoseconds to catch the attention of friends and family on Facebook and likewise for them. Posts ranging from political rhetoric to your parents just learning about the Harlem Shake all share the same space. Often what you see at the front of the page was a carefully calculated algorithm working with a commercialized slant. That’s why FB always tend to switch itself to “Top stories” instead of “most recent” – it’s dictating what it thinks you should see. It’s because of this system we see “clickbait” today. What happened the good stuff? Enter nudism.reddit.com.
For those who don’t know: Reddit is a a social media platform (e.g Twitter and yes Facebook) where every niche has a community. From fountain pens to pictures of cats giving high fives, there are communities for everything. What makes reddit different and all the more useful and enjoyable is unlike Facebook, Reddit doesn’t decide what you see! Other users judge the best content by upvoting or downvoting. The more upvotes, the closer to the front page the post goes and the inverse for downvoted content. Oh if Facebook only allowed you to downvote that photo your friend took of their meal. I don’t care you got the chicken franks!!
Nudists are hard pressed to find sites that are informative, intelligent, and conducive to nudism. The good sites are difficult to find because they unfortunately get drowned out by the lousy stuff.
Nudists are hard pressed to find sites that are informative, intelligent, and conducive to nudism. Sites like clothesfreelife.com! The good sites are difficult to find because they unfortunately get drowned out by the lousy stuff. Found a nudist site? Chances are it’s porn, or outdated, or unutilized…or all three.I set out to change that by starting /r/Nudism.
Not only do the latest internet sensations see their start on reddit, it’s largest demographic is the under 40 young professional. A demographic sorely missing in nudism today. I chose reddit because it is a democratic social network. What you see wasn’t decided for you based some robots logic. You see it because a like-minded redditor voted to bring it to the foreground. As a community, our goal is to advance the conversation of nudism. Too often, poorly made nudists sites are just a vehicle for delivering photos of naked people. It’s not any better at Facebook where a photo of a nursing mother gets banned for being “too sexual.” So a nudist sharing their trip photo is certainly out of the question.
/r/Nudism advances the conversation by ensuring all photos have context. Posts containing nothing more than a naked person aren’t permitted. This yields quality content. No more “nudist buzzkills” like Mr Crotch-selfie and pornobot spammers.

We believe nudism is more than pics! Trip reports, club events, insightful discussion are all found at /r/nudism. Best of all, we take out the hassle of finding a good site because only the best gets upvoted. Subscribers of this site will be happy to know the first moderator I brought on to help was EarlD editor of clothes free life!
In addition to quality content, /r/Nudism passes the usage test. Just last month, we had 36,000+ visitors and nearly 97,000 page views – averaging about 1,500 people a day! If you share something meaningful – it will be seen! It’s an underground success and we’re only just getting started.
So here’s a call to action for the entire naturist/nudist community: let’s stop wasting precious time trying to change Facebook’s mind. We are simply persona-non-grata there and y’know what? We don’t need them either! Come to nudism.reddit.com so we can cut to the chase of getting more young and new naturists/nudists to the clubs, beaches, and parks. So we can show everyone that dancing in just your skin ain’t no sin. We’re reaching out to various club leaders and organizations to continue to make the site informative, active and useful. Already you will find links to resort calendars, tips for newbies and much more. Once you create a reddit account, please visit nudism.reddit.com and click the subscribe button.
