This effort is meant to augment my naturist travel blog, The Meandering Naturist, wherein I write mainly about our travels to naturist and clothing optional places all over the world.

I started the original blog having grown frustrated with how much information is out there about naturism (nudism, if you wish) that really isn’t very informative at all. Or perhaps there are a few good points on offer, but the writing is not at a level where one can’t help but call into question the perspective of the author. I will intersperse reblogs of some of my “opinion” pieces now and again as seems appropriate, but most of the content on these pages will be by other authors from a variety of sources; sometimes blogs, but also other pieces I come across in various periodicals and mainstream websites. I’m hoping the common denominator will be substantive writing that avoids so many clichés about social nudity that turn up as the result of a typical web search.

To this end, I hope to elevate the discussion about social nudity while providing as many perspectives from mainstream media as I can find, hoping that the take-away for someone who stumbles into these pages might say, “Maybe this nudist/naturist thing isn’t as crazy as I thought.”

Always looking for new sources. You can send me a link at naturistdan@gmail.com
