How often have you heard naturists utter those words? Well, I heard them again in New Zealand recently. In fact it seems to be a standard phrase every time I visit this beautiful country.

Share your story, get paid

Sure, we know it’s unfashionable to pay writers these days. But what do we care about fashion? Our goal is to share the joy and freedom of naturism. So, please, send us your articles and photos describing naturist experiences, philosophy, travels, and related topics. If we publish your contribution, you’ll not only help others to ditch their dreary threads, you'll help your pocketbook, too.
