Who are adult nudists? Why they're everyone!

It is the job of comedians to make fun of groups, races, politicians or themselves. As the late George Carlin said, "I think it's the duty of every comedian to find out where the line is drawn and to cross it deliberately."

Some jokes you know who created them like George Carlin's, "Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough not to quit."

Other jokes like "I don't approve of political jokes. I've seen too many get elected," have been told by so many comedians in making fun of politicians, no one knows who said it first.

Well another inaccurate joke that has been around for a long, long time is "Why is it that most nudists are people you don't want to see naked." Even George Carlin used it.

Now all nudists know this is just a bad joke making fun of us and is so untrue. Sadly though, non nudists actually believe it and sadly so do many in the media.

A Denver website wrote a couple of days ago: "It's one of life's most bitter ironies that, as a general rule, the people most likely to be nudists are the people you least want to see nude -- and so it was with a collective sigh of relief from the pants-wearing world that Nude Recreation Week wrapped up yesterday..." Not to flattering of nudists or the world of nude recreation.

However, the reality, as all nudists know, is completely different. Nudist adults are all ages from their 20's to their 80's. They come from all ethnic backgrounds. They are all sizes from tall to short to average height. They are thin, to average to plus sized weights. They are Democrats, Republican, Libertarians, and non voters. They are pretty, average, and plain in looks. Nudists are all professions and all religions oe no religion. They are more highly educated than average Americans though. Thus, they are you and me.

As a perfect example, above is a photo of Patty, the manager at The Terra Cotta Inn. She is in her 20's and is Latina. Proving nudists are all ages and proving the writer did not do his research.

Also nudists will tell you it is not the outer beauty of people that matters. It is the inner beauty.

Any one who is a nice, happy, friendly person easily could be a nudist.

Sadly what happens when the media thinks they are being funny by making fun of nudists is they are actually driving people away from trying nude recreation.

A nude vacation is one of the best, most fun vacations you can ever have. But with the American media portraying nudists as aging hippies, they do a great disservice to all Americans and first timers by not reporting the news accurately.

So if you are in the media and are writing a story about nudism, The American Association for Nude Recreation is a great source of information, Their site is And their number is 800-TRY-NUDE.

OF course you can also contact me too as I am the PR Chairperson for AANR. My name is Tom Mulhall at 800-786-6938.

So don't let the media scare you away from trying a nuder vacation, it will be the best one you have ever had!
