I have become an activist for nudism

miss-teen-nudistIn the last couple of years I have become an activist for nudism in our area and thought I’d share some stories about how we go about it. Now I have a girlfriend who joins me in promoting nudism and the lifestyle.

It seems some areas like Boulder Colorado are going backward instead of forward and this bothers me as it could start a trend in other cities as these things often do. I’m 300 miles away on the other side of the state, maybe thankfully, but I hope a movement will grow to reverse these laws and to educate people as to the true nature of simple social nudism. We as a community need to promote a better image of nudity and the nudist lifestyle.

Just for example, here’s what we are doing. I started a nudist group here in Colorado called the Grand Junction Naturists,(www.gjnaturists.com) and we do things like we hosted a World Naked Gardening Day at our house this year and we invited the media to cover the event if they agreed to present it in a positive light. We made the front page of the local paper and were on TV 4 times and all of it was very positive. Next year we plan on hosting it again and again inviting the media to cover it, plus we hope to begin some safe advertising to grow our group and offer free information for those who want to learn about our lifestyle. Our website has a decent amount of educational material on it already and we plan to add more including a printable version so they can share it with others in a printed form.

This year my GF and I decided we no longer cared who knows we are nudists, including her employer and fellow co-workers, as well as family, and guess what? We have had almost no negative reactions. Some were a little shocked and said they could never do that, but most were curious about why we do it which opens up to the door for us to be ambassadors for the lifestyle and to try to encourage them to get over their negative body issues.

And it’s working, slowly, a little at a time, but we are having an effect. Here’s some examples. One friend of ours is very heavy set and was very self conscious of her body and said she could never go naked around others. Well over the course of maybe 8 months I gave her reasons why she shouldn’t be embarrassed about her body and just slowly let her know about the nudist values and way of life. Finally one day she went to a private commercial hot springs with us and surprised us all by dropping her robe with nothing on. Since then she is much more comfortable being nude around others and in talking about it.

    […] … turned in bath-time photos of her 8-year old daughter to a Fuji lm processing laboratory inOberlin, Ohio. The laboratory contacted the local authorities, who discovered the photographs ‘over the line’ andarrested the mom for, among other things, snapping in the same frame with her daughter ashowerhead, which the prosecution apparently planned to relate somehow to hints of mastur-bation. (Kincaid, 2000)These are two cases at which record of youth nakedness under the gazeof the parents was deemed to be obscene through processes of sexualization or,better, a reading that presumes the gaze of the parents through a camera lens wasa sexual one. The signiers that recontextualize the shots as sexual are, in thesetwo instances, the phallic sausage and the apparently phallic showerhead. No suchsigniers are necessary for the sexual reading, yet, as testied by the case ofthe visual arts pupil and many other recent cases of charges or arrests for kidpornography production.What is occurring here is a destabilization between the framework in which theparental gaze at the nude kid (and its lmic record) is presumed harmless, andthe frame in which nakedness is seen as sexual. As with all textual interpretations,the meaning resides in the reading. In Tony Bennett’s poststructuralist formu-lation of reception theory, the meaning is not held by the text, but activelyproduced in the act of reading, and in the relationship between the text and thereader. For Bennett, the productive activation of meaning is regulated by the‘reading formation’ or the ‘set of intersecting discussions which productivelyactivate a given body of texts and the connections between them in a specic way’(Bennett, 1983: 216).
