Naturism is a lifestyle of non-sexual nudity , and the cultural movement which advocates and defends that lifestyle. Both may also be referred to as nudism. Though the two terms are largely interchangeable, nudism emphasizes the practice of nudity, whereas naturism highlights an attitude favoring harmony with nature and respect for the environment, into which that practice is integrated. Naturism may be practiced individually, within a familial or social context, or in public. Ethical or philosophical nudism has a long history, with many advocates of the benefits of enjoying nature without clothing. At the turn of the 20th century, organizations emerged to promote social nudity and to establish private campgrounds and resorts for that purpose. Since the s, with the acceptance of public places for clothing-optional recreation, individuals who do not identify themselves as naturists or nudists have been able to casually participate in nude activities. Nude recreation opportunities vary widely around the world, from isolated places known mainly to locals to officially-designated nude beaches and parks. Many contemporary naturists and naturist organisations advocate that the practice of social nudity should not be linked with sexual activity. Some recent studies show that naturism can help growing self-esteem  , thus having a positive impact on living a well balanced sexuality too.

What they offer
It endorses a naturistic approach to sports and community living. Behind that is the joy of the experience of nature or also of being nude itself, without direct relationship to sexuality. The followers of this culture are called traditional naturists , FKK'ler, or nudists. The German nudist movement was the first worldwide and marked the start of an increased acceptance of public nudity in Germany. In many parts of central Europe up until the 18th century, people bathed naked in rivers and lakes, although often separately by sex. Beginning in the late 18th century, public nudity became increasingly taboo. At the same time, Lord Monboddo — practised and preached nude bathing as a revival of Ancient Greek attitudes toward nudity. In more and more Swedish baths [a] arose in rooms in Berlin and on the North and Baltic Seas and a naturist movement began in France. The FKK movement was based on an attitude towards life where the naked body is not a source of shame. Nudity has to have prior group consent, and therefore requires no reserved zones, such as separate beaches or club areas.

These are external links and will open in a new window. A nudist in Berlin got too close to nature for comfort when a wild boar snatched his plastic bag - which had his laptop inside. The naked man gave chase to the boar and her two piglets - much to the amusement of fellow sunbathers. Adele Landauer, an actor and life coach, took photos of the chase at Teufelssee - a popular bathing spot - and put them on Facebook. Ms Landauer provided more details on her Instagram page , saying the incident was a good example of someone persevering to achieve their goal. While the man was bathing, she writes, the boars calmly ate a pizza from his backpack and then "they were looking for a dessert". But the man who owned it realized it was the bag with his laptop. The onlookers "adored him how focused he stayed and when he came back with his yellow bag in the hand we all clapped and congratulated him for his success".
