Nudism on the decline... no way!

Nudism and Naturism are not in a decline path, however the world are changing and our live style follow's trends, so the way how youth see it is different from old fellows.

The economic situation give more focus to our way of spending money, we choose better and wisely.

Naked organizations should work and have strategy's focus on is own "client".

Inf Card Holders and nudist or naturist that want to join Us or other naked organizations are  different nowadays, and they are our "client".

This means that we have to find and work to supply what they are demanding instead of working to our self's, only organizations focusing on is own actual and new members will survive, and this is a never ending job this imply a continuous path on changing and discovering the best way to do it.

Our Club are fully aware of it, and we have different strategy´s to youth, members and possible new members.

We have annual fee to youth or senior members and a lower fee to couples, we organized a monthly swimming pool in winter and several naked and textile activities all year around.

We used a lot online social networks and publish several newsletter and online magazine to delivery our message and reach as much readers as we can.

It wiill be enough ?

"I find this amazing and accurate article and subscribe is author. 
First, this trend in my own opinion is happening nowadays worldwide. If you belong to a nudist or naturist organization is very easy to see it. Or if you visit some Naturist Federation website you can find  that youth organization are actually lower than it was in past. Naturist organizations worldwide are probably getting an older average age in is own members likewise general population in those country´s, and this average is increase by less youth membership. 

Second, all organization are aware off it but changing it´s focus to deal with this problem is very complicate. Youth and older naturist have different ways  of language and communication.  Even worst they use different channels to communicate. They have  different interest and different goals nowadays, and all off that  is a mass to deal. Changing how organizations works, changing goals and priorities are very complicate and takes time, and they do not have that time. The problem and the solution must be found and working should start right now  or same organizations will closed. 

Portuguese organizations have the same problem, and our Federation is now trying to reverse this situation with  an lower annual fee to youth but this will not be enough. Our organizations will need to have same staff working and focuses in youth recruitment and at same time have to  grow in older naturist membership. It seems simple but as you know they are volunteers and this effort takes a lot of time. What is your opinion about this ? How can it be fix ? "

From time to time articles appear from various news sources proclaiming the end is in sight for nudism. Just last summer an article noted that membership in the American Association for Nude Recreation has dropped precipitously from a high of more than 50,000 to about 35,000 members.  ... ... It's amusing from the perspective that evidently most people outside of nudist culture are completely unaware that social nudity has been practiced in the U.S. since at least 1929. The nudist subculture preceded Woodstock by several decades. There is a however a grain of truth in reports that nudism is declining. In a recent post about the upcoming 2014 elections for the American Association for Nude Recreation published in the The Altogether, the association's official weblog, it was stated, "The board and executive officers elected in 2014 will be responsible for setting direction to reverse the continuing decrease in membership..." There is no denying then that AANR membership is declining. It isn't enthusiasm for nudism as a lifestyle choice that is declining, but interest in holding membership in nudist organizations. Along with that, there is less interest especially among young adults in visiting traditional nudist clubs as the first choice for social nudity or naturist activities venues. Part of the problem may be that traditional nudist clubs weren't willing or agile enough to make changes that might have made such facilities more appealing to younger nudists yet other factors are at work. Generation X and the Millennials just aren't as interested in joining organizations as were past generations. Memberships in nudist organizations are declining for the same reason that memberships are declining in fraternal organizations like Moose Lodges and the Elks. Today American nudist and naturist organizations seem to be primarily occupied with fighting a rear guard action, dug in and trying to cling to the hard won clothing-optional victories won during the Lee Baxandall era. That brings to mind a quote from Ellis, a character in the film No Country for Old Men, "All the time you spend trying to get back what's been took from you, more is going out the door." [More from Dallas Nudist Culture: The ethical nudist] In large measure, decline of club nudism is simply the product of the natural evolution of nudist culture. Along with rejecting established social norms regarding when it is appropriate to be nude, I think the younger nudist generation also rejects the notion that public nudity has to be quarantined to specific venues to appease those in society who don't approve of it. I think that is a positive and believe change is good. Based on what you see and hear these days on the web and elsewhere it appears quite evident that interest in being nude because it is relaxing, liberating, comfortable and just good, wholesome fun is growing, especially among young adults. They simply prefer to do nudism in the ways that make sense for them rather than embracing the ways past generations have done it. I personally don't see anything wrong with that.

Reality Project

Another project about ours body.

A lot of photographer´s work with naked body´s but will this help naturism ? Give us your opinion how and if exposure our nakedness help naturism to grow and become more accepted by society.

Nowadays, we are surrounded by images of bodies seemingly perfect.

But are we are sure that is real beauty?
The images that we experience every day impose a standard of beauty that is very far from reality.
You have to be tall, thin, with smooth skin, big breasted or show a perfect six pack.
When these features are not natural, it’s “normal” to abuse photoshop to achieve this “ideal”.
The intent of “Reality Project”, as the name suggests, is to photograph normal people, real and nude, letting the body show their natural beauty, with no tricks or retouch, in all its shapes and sizes.

Be Real.
