LABSN editor’s note: This is written very well. I agree the terms nudist and naturists have been misappropriated by the porn industry. True naturists do need to take our community back and I like your idea of using the new social media more effectively.
Naturism and nudism have a PR problem and if it isn’t resolved the consequences could be disastrous. The problem originates from the advent of new technology social media and cultural shifts.
Often while browsing the web looking for news stories I come across ordinary people who share their clothes free experience who start by saying I am no nudist. The word nudist has become so associated with sexual nudity that ordinary people who genuinely want to explore naturist and clothes free living avoid it. Porn mongers, pervs and sex trolls have coopted the term nudist to describe their sexual activities and promote their sexual proclivities. Google the word nudist or search on Twitter and the majority of items returned will be porn related.
I can also tell you that the cultures between swinger nudism and family-oriented nudism really aren’t all that different.
