Is Nudity Compulsory for Naturists?

Nudity is not compulsory; that is why the term "clothing-optional" exists. Clothing has its purposes - warmth and protection. Many Naturists feel more comfortable wearing some clothing while participating in active sports, but many activities - especially swimming - can be much more comfortable and enjoyable without the confinement of clothing. While many of us prefer to be nude as much as possible, we also accept that appropriate clothing is necessary to protect from sunburn, cold weather or the hazards of rough work. Sunboys realises that clothing is not at all essential to moral living.

Does Social Nudity Excite Sexual Desire?

A body does not automatically become sexual by the mere act of removing one's clothing. Although sex is natural, sex is not equated with naturism. Sexual intent requires deliberate sexual action - choice making behaviour - by one who would have sexual interest. Naturists, as a group, have the same sexual responses as everyone else, but they know that the practice of Naturism proves that the naked human body is not intrinsically erotic. Because Naturism satisfies our natural curiosity about the human person of both sexes and all ages, it makes social poise easier rather than more difficult and relaxes social tensions. "But, what if I get an erection?" you ask. Sunboys accepts the fact that we are all sexual beings and views an erection as a natural happening, which in and of itself is not necessarily sexual.

Why Join Sunboys?

Whether you enjoy living your life as clothes-free as possible or just enjoy an occasional skinny-dip at either the nude beach or a secluded pool, joining Sunboys opens up the possibilities of a whole new life style. The pleasures of camping, swimming, sunbathing, sports, and the feeling of closeness with nature are greatly increased when done in the nude. The joys of this is all increased when shared with others. Social nudity breaks down self-consciousness and barriers of class, education, religion and race between people. Sunboys is made up of a diverse group of guys representing a wide cross-section of the population.

Why be nude?

Our Answers

Some rather convincing reasons why you're onto something good:

Non-nudists (textiles) often ask; "Why would you take off all your clothes in front of other people and run around naked?" Well, we don't just run around naked, and there are a lot of good reasons we prefer to be nude. The obvious reason that first pops into my mind is "Nude is natural and more comfortable!", but comfort is only one of the many benefits of nudism.

Hey! Listen to your inner sense that tells you being naked and free is being truly human the way we are meant to be.
