    Naturist implies that social nudity is a natural condition – that you re being natural. This isn’t so – once you are aware of nature you are no longer part of it. An animal is natural, i.e. part of nature because it is unconscious of it’s role or function, humans are aware of nature and thus not really part of it; they can comment on it, incorporate part of it but will still be cultural animals and clothing is part of that culture and so is no clothing. In Europe Naturist is the preferred term but nudist/nudity/nudism having less “natural” connotations is to be preferred.
