Nudist Organizations you should join in the US

A poll in 2007 from the Roper Organization showed 25% of Americans have gone skinny dipping in mixed company. Earlier this year, the Y Partnership Travel Leisure Monitor showed 10% of Americans were interested in a nude vacation.

That is a lot of Americans who are interested in nude recreation.

There are 2 great organizations that work very hard to promote nudism in the US. They are mainly staffed by hard working volunteers. There is the American Association for Nude Recreation, also known as AANR. They do a fantastic job in promoting nudism as being normal and fun, something for the whole family to enjoy. Their website is

In my opinion, through AANR's positive public relations programs and messages, especially in the last 10 years, they have shown nude recreation to be wholesome and fun. They are doing a great job making it appear mainstream and normal. We are proud to be a member of this fine organization and have been members since sometime in the late 1980's or early 1990's (I forget).

AANR has a legal defense fund. This is very important as many government entities want to take away your rights to enjoy nude recreation. We have donated free room nights to raise money for the AANR legal defense fund and a number of years ago, we donated a free week at our resort as a major fund raiser. I encourage everyone to join AANR and to contribute to their legal defense fund.

The Other major nudist organization in the US is The Naturist Society also know as TNS. Their website is
We were members since the early 1980's, but no longer.
The Naturist Society does a good job promoting nude recreation and they were the organization that pioneered nude recreation week which is one of the best public relations events showing nudism in a positive light. They also have a legal defense fund. It is here
If you enjoy nude recreation and want to see it flourish in the US, I encourage everyone to join one or both of these fine organizations and contribute to one or both of their legal defense funds.
