So what is a nudist?

Defining nudist from a historical perspective

An amazing article from Larry Darter.

In the preface to “Naked People” Cec Cinder offered a summarized definition of the nudism idea presented at length in The Nudist Idea

Definition of nudism

  1. It must be a group activity. Nakedness alone however enjoyable is not nudism,
  2. It must be mixed-sex, a group interaction of both men and women,
  3. It must be complete, not the state of partial nudity which is a contradiction of the entire spirit of nudism,
  4. It must be social,
  5. It must be self-conscious (e.g., primitive tribes going completely naked is simply their norm not nudism).
