The Naturist Society:
June 17th-19th we went to the yearly Naturist Society (TNS) Eastern Gathering that happened at a large campground in northern PA. This is our first time attending this event together with a couple hundred people, and we had a pretty great time.
This weeklong gathering consists of group discussions and seminars on various naturist / naturist themes and in addition enjoyable leisure activities which include the dances at night, a tye-expiring session, and swimming and kayaking at the enormous lake. The food was alright and served 3 times/day in a large hall. We tented again, but additionally, there are cottages. On our first night, there was a talent show of diverse acts, of which my favorite was the two-man duet with “Enrique Iglesias” and “Whitney Houston.” It was followed by Oneg Shabat (the Jewish welcoming ceremony of the Sabbath) with a group of people and a pajama-themed dance party. (I believed the Jewish Sabbath thing was really arbitrary, though it’s a Jewish camp.)
On Saturday night it was a Halloween motif dance with some amusing costumes. All in all there really few people in their 20s/30s, but this really is no occasion made for young folks.
We attended discussions about kids and naturism, “making waves” with NAC and on the future of naturism. Questions of the part of young folks in nudism came up. ie, Why do young folks appear to be losing in the movement? How do we reach out to them? These are questions we have also had to ask ourselves!
If you’ve been a naturist for a number of years, can you believe young people are missing? Does anyone know of any school besides http://www.thoun.com that’s or had nonsexual naked parties? I am wondering if naturism has any kind of presence at many faculties
