What is life like in a nudist colony?

First thing,nudist places are no longer called colonies. Because the term "colony" sounds barbaric, this term puts a negative light on nudists and naturists. So the accepted terms are: Naturist (or nudist) Clubs,Resorts or Nudist Beaches.

Life at the resorts or clubs is simple. We are people who just want to relax and recreate in the outdoors without clothes. At the resorts or clubs,we swim,hike,play volleyball & other simple but fun sports. It's almost like how Adam & Eve lived,except we have rooms w/ beds to sleep in. We don't force our beliefs on anyone and we do wear clothes now and then,just not 24/7.

We even have cookouts (yes..the cook wears an apron! ha-ha!),dances and special occaision parties. All of these gatherings and activities are overseen by the owners and club/resort directors.

Sexual activity (especially with children!!),drunkeness,drug-use,weapons and/or violence are not tolerated at all. Anyone in violation is not only asked to leave but has their name put on a list of offenders,and will not be admitted to any naturist related places anywhere in the world.

If you are a couple,your "togetherness" should only be expressed in your private room. So,basically a naturist club/resort is a great place to feel free and more like the human being you actually are,instead of what society says that you are. We weren't born with clothes,so when possible and comfortable to do so,we just chill out and relax without them.

Personally,I feel more equal to people there,than I do in the regular world where everyone feels the need to judge and categorize us all.
