My New Concept for nudist education

I have an idea for a series of What IF memes, like these, both in uncensored and censored versions. If you have ideas for short sayings like this that can make people question their faulty beliefs about nudity, post them below in the comments. 

These are meant to get people to question their beliefs about nudists, which are often totally incorrect by getting them to think 'What if' my beliefs are based on faulty information, and to get them to question why they think that way.  They are also meant to get society to question why we treat the human body as shameful and gross.

Let me know what you think, and what ideas you might have.

Thanks, Guy & Carla

I walked naked in front of stores and home to make a point

This is a sample of the many nudist educational videos I have shot.  I'll be releasing these as we gain support on my channel.  My intent with the videos is to educate society about what it truly means to live without clothes, whether part time or as often as possible, like me.  I'll show examples of me and my wife doing ordinary things like Shopping naked, Naked hiking, walking through the neighborhood nude, mowing the lawn naked, raking leaves nude, and even hanging out with a Buck deer who stood just 30 feet away.  If you just want to see a naked man in public, do what you want, but this is NOT an erotic video and I don't do it to be seen, only to be accepted just as I am.

A nudist is simply someone who chooses not to wear clothes all the time.  We deserve the right to live our lives free, without clothes.  If it makes you uncomfortable, then maybe you need to think about why a human body makes you feel this way.  But at least, allow the rest of us to not be arrested for living our lives, our way.  We aren't out to shock you, show off our bodies, strut our stuff and it has NOTHING to do with sex.  We simply don't like wearing clothes all the time. So why not legalize it?

IMPORTANT: Due to YouTubes penchant for closing down nudist channels, be sure to follow us on Vimeo instead, where nudity is allowed without fear of being banned.  Our Vimeo channel is at:

Being a nudist or naturist is NOT about showing off our bodies, or our genitals, etc.  We are NOT exhibitionists, we simply find it much more comfortable to be without clothes.  We don't do it because we have a higher sex drive.  We also find nudists to be much more of an accepting crowd, we don't have to worry about body shaming, and nudists are just kinder, nicer people as a whole, much more than the clothed society.

Now you can show your support for our channel, on our community, members only page at:

Let me know your thoughts on this and I'll catch you on the next one.

We switched to Vimeo for our nudist videos. No More Lost accounts

Twice now I've had YouTube shut down my nudist channel over the nudity.  So I got sick of them and switched to Vimeo where nudity is allowed.

My first upload is one showing how you can work naked, outside, without shame.  It's also to show how there's no need to be ashamed over your naked body.

Check it out and see what you think, and be sure to share the video, and to follow us.

My Uber story

I know this isn't totally nudist related, but if any of you are interested in making some part time money, working for yourself, consider driving for Uber. 

We started a few months ago and we really enjoy it as we can work whenever we feel like it and make a little extra money now and then. And sometimes, it pays really well, like the examples I posted in the video below.

And I do get in some interesting conversations about nudism.  Like one time when the passengers all got in and one asked why I had clothes on.  Took me a minute to remember the Life is Short, Play naked sticker on my back window. 

Anyway, here's the video and hopefully it helps some of you.

Please Signing our Petition & Help Nudism

We have created a petition at:

Here's the jist of this petition:

As New York City has shown itself to be at the forefront of social change, and anecdotal evidence has shown that both toplessness and exposure in appropriate public settings does not harm, nor represent a nuisance to society, we hereby petition the great city of New York to set aside an area of public park land within the city limits for clothing-optional recreation consistent with the Rules and Regulations of the New York City Department of Parks and Regulations excluding Section 1-04(n).
 Since 1992, NY v Santorelli has given equal rights to men and women to be topless in public areas of New York.  While there were few women that took advantage of this right at the beginning, it has become more prevalent and legitimate over the past decade due to the efforts of groups like the Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society and social action campaigns like Free the Nipple.  These groups have continuously demonstrated that the stated purpose of laws like Section 245.01 of New York State Law - to “protect parents and children… ‘from the discomfort caused by unwelcome public nudity’ “ (NY v Santorelli, 1992 Titone, J concur) - are erroneous in their assumptions, and therefore these laws are unnecessary and unwarranted.
 Moreover, events like the World Naked Bike Ride and NYC Bodypainting Day have shown that this stated purpose is in error with regards to exposure in general, therefore negating the entire purpose of this section of the law.
 Clothing-optional areas that have been set aside in other communities have not shown an increase in public disturbances, and, in fact, have been shown to be good at self regulating their community.  As expressed by sociologist Martin S. Weinberg in Sexual Modesty, Social Meaning, and the Nudist Camp (1965), the rules and customs observed [in clothing-optional public settings] were sufficient to maintain modesty (defined as a form of reserve) and, participants were as modest as their clothed counterparts.
 A recent poll conducted for the Naturist Education Foundation showed strong public support for public nude recreation.  This includes strong public support for nude sunbathing and significant rejection of the claim that the majority of Americans are personally offended by the non-sexual nudity of others. (The independent poll was conducted by the prestigious Zogby Analytics polling firm. Naturist Education Foundation Poll Results )
 Government has the responsibility to represent the citizens of its community and to provide the lawful and decent services requested by that community.  Therefore, we humbly request an area of public park land within New York City be designated for clothing-optional use.  This area would be subject to all of the same rules and regulations as any other public park area other than the regulation on exposure.

This petition created on behalf of a group on Facebook that works to educate the general public about the rights of those citizens who choose clothes free recreation.  We are working to educate and gain equal rights of those citizens who choose the clothes free lifestyle.  For more information visit one our petition planning group at:
or our general information website about the clothing optional lifestyle at:

Again, visit to sign this petition.

Why the Nudity Taboo is Unethical and Must Go

Re-blogged from

I have always believed in the fundamental right to be naked. Outside of protection from the elements, from cold and physical hazards like thorns and broken beer bottles, clothing is entirely unnecessary, a matter of custom, of adornment, nothing more. I see no reason to wear clothes at home, at the pool, on the beach or at the park. Wherever bathing suits are acceptable, nudity should be also. Clothing has nothing to do with morality. Anyone who believes that society cannot function should people expose their genitals has only to look at the Bororo, Pataxo, and Xerente tribes of the Amazon, where complete nudity is customary. Going natural was practiced in Ancient Sparta, among Celtic tribes, and remains a common form of recreation for many Americans. Just visit NudeState. The image collection of families and friends sharing “naked time” together is simply beautiful. This is why it breaks my heart to hear about Christian Adamek:

      “Christian Adamek, from Huntsville, Alabama, hanged himself on October 2, a week after he was arrested for running naked across the Sparkman High football field during a game. The teenager died two days later from his injuries and on Wednesday, friends and family gathered at a memorial service as they struggled to comprehend the beloved student’s death. A video of Adamek streaking during a game against a rival team was posted on YouTube hours after the event and students took to Twitter to call him a ‘legend.’ ‘Sparkman’s new slogan is gonna be “Welcome to Sparkman High School, Home of Christian Adamek,”‘ one student wrote. But school staff did not treat the situation so lightly.  Sparkman High Principal Michael Campbell told WHNT a day before the suicide attempt that the teen could face major repercussions because of his actions. ‘There’s the legal complications,’ Campbell said. ‘Public lewdness and court consequences outside of school with the legal system, as well as the school consequences that the school system has set up.’ In Alabama, indecent exposure is linked to the state’s sex offender laws, meaning that he could have found himself on the sex offenders register due to the streaking.  Campbell added that that the incident was not just a prank and needed to be treated seriously. Sparkman High administrators even recommended that Adamek face a hearing in the Madison County court system to determine if formal charges would be filed, WHNT reported.  Adamek had also been disciplined by the school district but the details had not been made public.

The day before the suicide attempt, the principal had confirmed that Adamek was not at school and the teenager’s sister suggested on Twitter that Adamek faced expulsion, reported.
Campbell declined to comment on Adamek’s death but the Madison County school district issued a statement saying it had ‘received word that a Sparkman High School student has passed away.’Our prayers and thoughts are with the family during this time of bereavement,’ the statement read. The messages on Twitter have now turned from congratulatory to somber. ’Praying for the Adamek family. Christian was so funny and nice. He will be missed by so many,’ one girl wrote. ‘He was one that brightened the room when he walked in. That’s what I’ll always remember about Christian.’” —-”Boy, 15, kills himself after ‘facing expulsion and being put on sex offender registry’ for streaking prank at high school football game” by Lydia Warren, The Daily Mail

I would never go so far as to suggest that the reason for Adamek’s suicide was the shame of nudity, or even the extreme punishment he was threatened with, placement on the Sex Offender Registry List, where he would forever be associated with the worst of sexual deviants. More than likely, Adamek suffered from some form of depression. One does not choose suicide on a whim. But I do believe his streaking was a way for him to cope. I often find nudity to be cathartic and more than once have contemplated freeing my body about the neighborhood. Perhaps Adamek felt the need to draw attention to his existence. Whatever the case may be, his actions should have been celebrated. Incriminating him could only have damaged his already fragile psyche, and this is the shame of this story, the intolerance of those who cling to outdated and meaningless taboos. If we continue to treat people who choose body freedom like rapists and child molesters, we pervert the very meaning of what it is to be a sex offender, and by association, belittle the evils of rape and molestation. People who commit sex crimes cause lasting psychological wounds. Nobody who sees a human body has ever been harmed by it.

Anti-nudity laws are unethical in that they criminalize a state of being. There is no precedent, no comparable law, and worse, no rationale for it. It is entirely rooted in archaic religious traditions. But while we no longer justify beating our wives or stoning adulterers, we must also accept that the human body is not an object of sin, nor can it be considered lewd, indecent or obscene. Unlike public sex or masturbation, nakedness is not an act, and for children innocent to sex, does not arouse. While some people unused to what humans look like may feel awkward, the feeling stems not from some fundamental aspect of nature, but a society that teaches children that their bodies are something to hide, which can often have devastating consequences. When I was twelve, I needed surgery around my “private” parts, but what had been so very private went on display for nurses, doctors, surgeons and family members. At the time, I felt violated, but realizing it had to be done for my health, my rage turned toward society. If raised among the Bororo, Pataxo or Xerente people, or as my great Spartan ancestors were, I would have never felt violated (although I probably wouldn’t have had the surgery either!).

The only case anyone can make against social nudity is that it is offensive. While this may be the case for some people, and honestly I cannot imagine how something so common to us all can be, it is irrelevant when it comes to what is legal. At the risk of sounding like a Fox News pundit, the First Amendment guarantees Americans freedom of expression. No matter how offended I am (and often am) by people driving around with giant Confederate flags on the back of their trucks, I know that it is their right to do so, and that it would be unethical of me to criminalize their expression, however racist and hurtful it may be. I can legally burn a Bible, a Koran, even an American flag. I can hold a sign at a gay man’s funeral that reads, “God Hates Fags”; I can tattoo myself with a swastika and wear a T-shirt with Hitler’s face on it; and I can put a bumper sticker on my car comparing the president to a terrorist. And yet, the one thing I am never free to express is that of my humanity, my belief that the body is an inherent good and innocent thing, and that the only real shame is to hide it, or to fear that some neighbor might peer over a fence and be offended by it. I have only to take one step beyond my front door, and should I feel the sun on my surgical scar, I become a criminal. For the remainder of my life, I am barred from schools and playgrounds and anywhere children gather. In essence, I am treated worse than a Nazi, because a penis is a greater offence than a swastika. This is what Christian Adamek was faced with. No doubt, he was hurting inside, more than his friends and family could imagine, and our society failed him. A society that treats streakers as criminals, that bases a legal system upon outdated religious taboos, fails us all.

I"m OFFENDED by Nudity

If you've been a nudist for long, you've probably heard that argument as to why public nudity should be illegal.  Comments like 'I don't want to see naked people walking around in public' or 'It's offensive to see naked people in public'.  I've always thought, what a ridiculous reason to enact laws, but it happens.

Then today I came across this video and just had to share it with you because it's perfect and applies to our lifestyle so well.

Feel free to share this video and blog post with your nudist, and NON nudist friends. 

Take care,
Guy & Carla Purcella
