This is where the idea of nudism begins for most
people. Wholesome gatherings of like-minded folks enjoying nature without the
hindrance of bathing suits or clothes of any kind. Moms, dads, kids playing
blissfully on the beaches or mastering their ping-pong skills during lively
community recreations. "Recreation" is a key word here. FKK seems to
also mean being very active, and sponsors all sorts of competitions for all
ages, from body painting to archery and even 'pagan' dancing. Days are
organized around the various activities, most everyone participates, all in a
safe and sound environment.
Kids Play, Teens Flirt, Like They Do
Not surprisingly, all the same dynamics play out
in these nudist camps and beaches as you'd find on a regular textile
beach community sponsored event. Kids play and frolic, bend and dip in
ways you wouldn't think prudent for a nudist; older teens group-up and
flirt (as I always say, it's very interesting to witness). Girls tease
the boys; boys show off.
Older teens act very blasť with that annoying
mature demeanor (they know everything, you know nothing), have learned a
thing or two about correct posture, and give their parents fits as teens
do all over the globe, naked or clothed. (Imagine yourself taking this
all in as you as have a post-lunch stroll around the park.)
And moms and dads behave as they do
everywhere. Mom will be busy in her usual ways, being the voice of
reason and instruction ("sit on towels!"), instruct on matters
of hygiene, have motherly worries but great pride in her healthy bright
kids. Dad will busy himself with the newspaper, oversee the sports
competitions, talk politics with the other men. You would hardly know
these people were all stark-raving naked.
A Healthy Way Of Life
And from there, from the FKK
ideal, nudism has blossomed and morphed and now enjoys expression in
every way imaginable. It's important to remember at the root of nudism
is a fundamentally healthy way of life--uncomplicated but with many
layers of meaning for its participants. It's very a very sensual and
meaningful way to engage the planet. It should be for all ages.
