We'll be filming nudist promotional videos soon

Hey everyone we have some exciting news! 

We have just launched a video production company to produce mostly how-to videos, but also informational and fun videos. But something I've wanted to do for quite awhile now is to produce videos to promote the nudist lifestyle, promoting a positive body acceptance, why others should try it, first timers experiences, etc.  We shot some using or phone a few years ago (like THIS example of me sanding and painting some doors naked, NOTE google has now removed the video) and always wanted to do some much better videos, which we now can.

 We already have a studio set up as shown below and have 3 Nikon cameras, Wireless microphone, Studio
Our Temporary Studio

lighting, etc., but we need more to do this professionally. We want to produce only high quality videos instead of the ones you often see with lousy lighting, poor sound, etc. (like the one we did on our phone, which was not so great)

Also,  if you have any ideas for some good videos related to this blog, let me know in the comments.

Thanks everyone, and we look forward to your support.

Reasons Society Doesn't Want to Allow Public Nudity

I've been thinking lately that many of the reasons we as nudists think that the public is not accepting of our public nudity, may be incomplete, so I did some research.  I found the site below and copied some of the most common reasons into the list below.  While this doesn't cover every reason out there, these were the most common reasons given.

So if we are going to try and convince the public that nudism is healthy and not something that should be illegal, we need to address the concerns listed above.  I will address a few of them here, but welcome your input as well.

1- What makes it right for one individual to decide who can and can't be seen naked in public, or in a bikini, etc? So many in this country are so embarrassed about the way their body looks due to this attitude.
2- Most of us know you can't std's from a toilet seat, so this is mostly moot.  And as we know, nudists sit on their own towels, but would the public if it was legal to be naked in public?  I actually have to admit, probably not, at least many of them.  So this is an understandable concern, although blown way out of proportion.
3- No proof of this, and as we know from visiting nudist resorts, this is totally untrue.  Actually, women are safer overall at nudist resorts than in public and get groped and such much more when dressed, than when nude.
4- Nudist families have proven for years that nudism does not harm kids and is actually beneficial as it teaches them what our bodies really look like, that our bodies are not shameful and it takes away that curiosity about the human body that generally only gets answered once they start having sex.  And because they are so much more open with their nudist parents, it's much easier for them to ask questions about sex and for the parents to discuss safe sex, etc.
5- Again, see #4
6- Clothing didn't make it innappropriate, society did that for puritanical reasons.  And by making nudity be associated with sex, as this person suggests is good, we teach kids that if they see a naked person that it's ok to be sexually suggestive to them, or to assume they want to have sex with you. Bad idea.
7- This doesn't even provide a reason they say it isn't wrong to be uncomfortable around naked people, just that it is the way our society is.  Being uncomfortable around naked bodies is teaching shame of our own bodies.  How can that be good?  100 years ago we could say 'It's not wrong to enslave another person for your own needs, as it's just the way our society is', but that didn't make sense then, and doesn't make sense now. We have the capacity to use out intelligence to decide if there is a real reason for being uncomfortable with nudity.  If there's not, we need to learn to get over it and embrace this wonderful body we have.
8- Nudists have never said clothing doesn't have a purpose.  But if you don't need clothes to protect you from the elements, or other danger, then why wear them?  And we have epidemic proportions of Vitamin D deficiency in this country from being brainwashed into believing we need to avoid all sun on our skin.  Nudists know how to not get sunburned by using sunscreen, limiting our time in the sun, etc, all without any clothes.  Bacteria?  Clothes harbor bacteria and make it worse.  Sure, if you wear long sleeve shirts, pants and such you are slightly more protected from bacteria and germs, but barely.  You pick up most germs from your hands, not your crotch, sorry.  So unless you wear gloves everywhere, your clothes are doing very little to protect you.
9-So, sophisticated means you have to spend a lot of money on clothes?  And what makes you think we all want to be 'Sophisticated'?  I see nothing sophisticated about it.  I see arrogance and pompous attitudes with the types of clothes we wear, and we use them to separate our selves into classes, but I don't see this as good.  I prefer to judge someone on their personality than the money they spent on clothes, but I guess we're not as smart as the sophisticated ones.  And again, nudist resorts prove that allowing public nudity doesn't lead to orgies or open copulation.  Besides, we can write the law to state that just because you are allowed to be naked in public, having sex in public is still an offense.
10- No, the advocacy of public nudity is NOT meant to be sexually charged.  This is someone making up crap out of ignorance or with the simple intent to make nudist look like perverts.

I welcome your input on these objections, and your thoughts as to my explanations.  I'm willing to modify these answers to better address the concerns society has if you show me a better way to do so.

Thank you,
Guy Purcella

Why it May Never be Legal to be Nude in Public in the US

As a long time nudist who prefers to wear clothes less every day, I dream of the day I could at least walk out in my front driveway without clothes, similar to the picture below, but without the need to 'shield' the public from my naked body, and without the fear of being arrested for doing so.  And the thought of being able to go anywhere naked, such as shopping, a movie, dinner, etc, would be the ultimate freedom to me.  But sadly, I doubt that it will ever happen here in the US.

I actually think that it’s possible, although very unlikely, for society to come to accept the idea of allowing people to live the way they want to, without dictating when and where they should wear clothes.  I also think that society may one day realize that the way we currently treat the issue of seeing a naked person in public is a form of body shaming, is silly, and is sending the wrong message to our children.  Those are issues that I hold out hope that one day our society can get over.

But here is the biggest problem I see.  First off, I think the main reason we are so uptight about public nudity is that it is automatically equated with sex.  Now as nudists, we know that getting naked is Not about sex for us.  But, if we were to legalize public nudity I believe the perverts would come crawling out of the woodwork, and that would be the biggest fear the public would have regarding legalizing public nudity.  We’ve seen it at nude beaches where they feel that having the right to be naked on a beach also gives them the right to have sex on the beach, or to masturbate in public, on these beaches. In most areas, the nudist community keeps them at bay through beach watches, nudist advocacy groups, etc.  But there are still a lot of areas where this activity continues to take place, despite these attempts.  And if nudity were legalized anywhere in public I can easily see the perverts sitting around, playing with themselves, even if discreetly, or gawking and staring at others, having sex in the bushes, etc.  And the police could suddenly get much busier trying to handle these new problems.

Sure, we could write laws to help prohibit this, but those would be difficult to enforce.  For example, how do you prevent creeps from staring at you, or your children, making you uncomfortable if you were enjoying a day in the park without clothes? And then there’s the issue of erections.  If the general public were able to be naked anywhere, then there would likely be many occurrences of men with erections.  The general public would not all follow the nudist rules of etiquette, and in public, I can see it happening often due to a more sexual atmosphere at times, such as a bar with dancing women, or other similar situations.  Even if we make public erections illegal, I’ve seen a lot of guys who appeared to be semi erect, even when they aren’t , so I could see a lot of false reports to police and judgement calls.  And even if a guy did have an erection and the cops were called, it would be gone by the time they arrived so would be a his word against theirs.

  I feel that overall the problem would be much less than the public would believe, but I also believe that it would be a real issue.  I think these are issues that are solvable, but I’m not so sure the public will ever believe that.  They will come up with a myriad of scenarios where being naked in public would be more dangerous, and convincing them otherwise would likely be a very difficult task to do.  So the easiest thing to do is to just continue to make it illegal to be naked in public.

But I’m not giving up on gaining my rights as a citizen to live my life, my way, as long as I’m not harming others.  I’ll also continue to work on helping society get over their body shame and in   Even if I never see the day I can walk out in my front yard naked without getting arrested, or cited, I’ll continue to do my part to stand up for nudists rights everywhere.  I hope more of you will join me in this cause.

I've Worked Naked in Customers Homes for Months

The last 4-5 months have been almost surreal.  I've been able to work naked in customers homes doing construction for about 4-5 months now, with their permission.  This is on 4 different jobs, and 2 of them were fine with my being undressed anytime, even when they were there, while the other simply asked that I put on clothes when she came home from work. And I'm very respectful of others desire to not see me naked, and really appreciated my 7 hours a day working on her home clothes free.

Even after all these months, I'm actually somewhat amazed at how many have let me do this.  I've always felt that the majority of society  is against nudists in general. But lately I am meeting more and more people who are either not bothered by it, or who enjoy nudism themselves. I think it is partly how we approach the subject that can often determine the response we get from someone. For example, on my most recent job we showed up at a customer's home who had a large orchard and a house with total privacy. We commented on the privacy he had and he said something to the effect of "yeah, it's really nice to be able to walk around without clothes, and even go out on the porch without worrying about offending someone".  I then let him know that I also enjoy doing things without clothes and even worked without clothes for the entire last two months on my previous job. He told me  that as far as he's concerned, he wasn't concerned with what I do or don't wear. Later I made sure he was okay with me not wearing anything, and he said yeah not a problem. So I was able to work the next eight days with nothing on and he never gave me even the slightest funny look.

My previous customer was a woman and even though I'm a man, she told me she trusted me and had no problem with me not wearing clothes while I worked.  She saw me many times on the job and never looked at me any differently than when I had clothes on. On that job I did a little bit of everything from tile work to drywall, paint, flooring, etc.

Maybe you're wondering why someone would want to do construction work without clothes on? the truth is that I would prefer to do most anything without clothes on unless it is absolutely necessary. Yes there are times when clothing is necessary, such as  when doing dangerous work like welding, demolition work, (yes I wore clothes during the demolition portion of the job), etc. Clothing also serves the purpose of keeping us warm, and can sometimes simply be fun to wear and get all dressed up to go out for an evening or something. But the majority of the time it is simply more comfortable to not have binding, sweaty clothing on. Plus it drastically cuts down on laundry when all I have to do is rinse off and the days  dusty work goes down the drain. I can tell you that each time I had to put clothing on I began sweating much more. So I was much cooler working without clothing, and definitely didn't have the binding red marks around my waist that I most always have when wearing jeans or shorts.

Painting naked really just makes sense
Do I act any differently when I'm working without clothing? No, except I am a little bit happier when I'm not wearing clothes. I'm sure that a lot of people assume that a man working naked on the job would often walk around in an aroused state, or be playing with himself etc., but for someone like myself who is a true nudist, that is absolutely not the case. Anyone that works naked with the intention of anything sexual at all, is not really a nudist, but is instead an exhibitionist and/or a pervert. And it's sad that the general public often assumes that all stories of someone doing something perverted while undressed means all nudists act this way.

And now one of the customers who four months ago allowed me to work naked on her job while she was at work, is requesting a bid for more work, so I may soon have another job where I can work comfortably without clothing.

Hopefully this is a continuing trend. I have a very good rapport with my customers, and they realize that I am a professional and do superior work, and those customers know that my being undressed while I work is simply a comfort issue and a lifestyle choice and is nothing weird or perverted.

So to any of my previous customers, thank you very much for allowing me to be who I am, and to be comfortable on your job. I look forward to working with you again. 

For any new customers, if you are ok with this, please let me know, but I will not impose on you, nor pressure you if you are not.  And I won't work without clothes unless I have permission or total privacy in some way. I'm sure my customers would be willing to give me a positive referral if you need reassurance that I act no differently undressed than dressed, or simply want to discuss the quality of our work.

And for any of you  who work in a position such as mine, maybe you can find a way to bring it up with your customers, and get the opportunity to work in your creators uniform as well.

Good luck, and thank you all.
