Dare to go bare: Nudism & naturism,
with a discussion of going topless

Sorry, if you are looking for pictures of unclad people, you will be disappointed. This essay is almost all-text. However, we do have an image of a group of naked chicks elsewhere in this web site which you might like to look at.

If you really want to gaze at photographs of unclad people, we suggest the Gallery of Nudes web site for tasteful pictures of beautiful nude women, or Leopold Museum for pictures of men.


bullet"Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature, characterized by the practice of communal nudity, with the intention of encouraging respect for oneself, respect for others and for the environment." International Naturist Federation.
