Our Talk up Tuesday question is a day late this week. SImply because we were trying to find questions with a positive outlook. But today it seems to be a challenge. So here goes. Recently on several social media platforms I have come across “naturist” accounts that regularly post images of naked families including children with the expressed purpose of promoting “family” naturism. There is nothing sexual in nature about these images usually the are scenes of beeach activities. The British documentary Naked Parents looks and families where at least the adults and often the children live clothes free to some degree. The video did a really good job of promoting clothes free living and included children talking on camera, none of them clothes free. So the question “Is posting clothes free images of children online necessary to promote family naturism?”
Does social nudism/naturism need rebranding? This week’s question comes from a conversation on Twitter about the focus of the two major naturist/nudist organizations. One individual tweeted “social nudism” is alive a well and practiced worldwide though it is less promoted in U.S. Which raises the question what is social nudism? Is it a label a description an activity. Does it provide an appealing means of engaging people for growth? Or does naturism/nudism need rebranding for a new era and more diverse demographic? As always share your thoughts in the comments and take the poll below.
This week’s question/topic: Is nudity for shock value boring? In a recent Salon video about the Members of Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society production of The Tempest actor Kara Lynn who played th character Ferdinand said “You have to do naked for something other than shock value. Otherwise she said its just boring. In a world fixated an viewing the naked female body is she correct? Is nudity for pure shock value boring?
Recently a UK newspaper’s online coverage of of World Naked Gardening Day featured a headline suggesting participants were exhibitionists. A couple of people we previously followed on social media have “come out” exhibitionists. Our talk up Tuesday question this week Is naturism/nudism just an excuse for exhibitionism?

Share your opinion, your voice, your thoughts on the topic of the week. This week’s question came from a response on Twitter to a tweet made during last week’s live broadcast. Host EarlD suggested some people might be more comfortable on a first time visit to a naturist/nudist venue if it were clothing optional instead of clothes free. The very specific quote drew very generalized response to in the words of one Twitter give the “other side”. We think there is only one side that of the person who is testing the waters for the first time. That do you think?
