hundreds of individuals of all ages and body types, will likely think, “I Have seen

lots of naked people before. Why does he need to sneak looks at this?” He
might also believe, “This is not even what most people look like.”
Growing up without shame
All these things occur to
nudist children, too. The one big difference for kids who were fortunate enough to grow
Upward in a fkk environment is that those children have literally seen those
changes take place, as their older friends or siblings went through that
difficult time. Due to that expertise, they are better prepared for .
We read in the newspapers
almost daily of some teacher, youth leader, church official or some other
trusted individual who took advantage of a kid in a sexual way. With hundreds
of fkk clubs in North America, that problem almost never takes place at our

A family which is open
enough to have experienced nudism, just like a healthy non-naturist family, is
also open enough to have discussed sex abuse with their children. These
children understand they can tell their parents immediately if they ever guess
that something is wrong.
We have been told by
authorities that the reason nudist clubs have a very low prevalence of sex
offenders is that we have the standing of prosecuting those individuals, while
until recent years, many other organizations have “crossed those issues under a
Carpet”, more concerned with their public image than with the safety of the individuals
they should have been shielding.
Historically, sex abusers
have felt much safer committing their misdeeds within organizations which have
tried to cover up their issues with molesters.
You may find it
encouraging to know that Bare Buns, and many other naturist clubs, have a really
good relationship with law enforcement agencies. Some of their officers are
members of our club. You can be certain that if we were doing anything
Another fact to ponder:
Nearly all sex offenders are men. At a fkk club, it would be very easy to
tell if a guy should happen to become sexually excited.
Some other intriguing

Info in an attempt to attempt to make ourselves appear to be “better” than
our non-nudist friends; instead, this advice could clarify some other
Fascinating observations about nudists’ lives:
The divorce rate is lower
among fkk families, and their children have a tendency to make better scores than
similar kids in non-naturist families. We do not believe that this is BECAUSE
the families are nudists; it’s more likely that the unions are more stable
AND their kids make good scores AND the families are nudists because the family
members have a tendency to convey a little more openly with each other within their day-to-day
Learning to accept and
Esteem all bodies
In those cultures, where
kids see all kinds and ages unclothed, they learn approval of the developing and
aging processes; they do not think they have to have face lifts, boob jobs and
collagen injections to become socially acceptable; they don’t grow up believing
“You are what you wear”.
They’ve likely never had
a case of a kid being killed for his tennis shoes or his Eddie Bauer coat!
We believe that when Americans
learn to accept the body as natural and wholesome, many of our social issues
which stem from body acceptance will decrease.
For the most part the
naked cycling that has taken place has been mostly at naturist/fkk
communities and resorts around the world. Small community festivals,
less-traveled roads, mountain trails, and other remote outdoor areas have also
been favourite places for those seeking peace and clean air away from their
hectic urban lives.
As streaking became
popularized in 1974, more
All the groups on this
page have had their own strategy to cycling naked. Some focus on body painting
and participate within the context of historical cultural parties. Others use
their body to bring attention to political problems. Some ride at night and others
during the day. Some ride
tricycles, unicycles,
skateboards, rollerskates, or rollerblades. What is going
to be like?
Activist Richard Collins:
“I began frequently cycling naked through
Cambridge in June 2002. After about half dozen trips I was in the Daily Mail
