Do you have to be religious to be a naturist?
No, there is no connection between Naturism and religion except that some falsely believe that the Bible condemns it. This has been shown not to be the case.
Pope John Paul II wrote: "The human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendour and its beauty... Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical shamelessness... Immodesty is present only when nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person...The human body is not in itself shameful... Shamelessness (just like shame and modesty) is a function of the interior of a person."
There is no conflict between Christianity and Naturism and equally no dependency. Naturists come from many different religious and non-religious backgrounds. The important property of a Naturist is respect for others.
The proper terms these days are : Naturist Resort Naturist Club (either one that is located somewhere or that has meetings in different special locations). Naturist Beach Naturist Park (Nudist still is used but the other term is more accepted now.) Some countries even have Naturist Cities. (Just dont call it The Naked City or you'll see some frowns!)
Some are some are not however it would be safe to assume that most naturists are do not have an English speaking background and that not many Muslims would be naturists so most naturist have a penis that is intact. British Naturism's answer: Naturism and circumcision are not connected, I would suggest that the proportions are the same as in the population as a whole. Most circumcisions are carried out on babies before the boy…
of course they are. that's why they call them FAMILY naturism websites. BritishNaturism's answer: Yes, we have no interest in anything that would be illegal in most of the countries of the world. Be warned though, that there are some sites that masquerade as Naturist sites, but are not. Sadly there is nothing that we can do about this as it is not possible to have legal protection for the term "Naturist" or even "Family…
I personally see nothing wrong with nudity. As long as it stays there and there is nothing sexual. In Nudist (Naturist) families, everybody is always nude and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. (I come from a Naturist family, and everybody is always nude, even in our vacation we are going to a nudist colony).
Are naturist family videos and pictures legal in the United States as the many sites that sell them claim?
Naturist videos are 100% legal and are protcted by the 1st Amendment to the Constituion which grants "Freedom Of Speech and/or Expression." Families that appear in these videos have taught their children that the human body is nothing to be ashamed of, and they watch out for their children as much as any other parents.
You can very well be christian and a naturist; the reality of being a christian is to accept all as one and one as all. To love nature is just a mere part of being christian or any other type of oneness with the universe that is portrayed in all religions. British Naturism's answer: Yes, you can. There is no conflict between Naturism and Christianity and there are many Christian ministers who are also Naturists.
