Frequently Asked Questions
"I took your advice about mentioning the great time I had at the Bare Buns Sports Club party to a female associate of mine, and I'll be darned if it didn't work perfectly, just like you said, the first time. I'd really like to bring Sue to the next Sports Event in April and see how she likes it, if that's OK..."

"To reduce the accumulation of static electricity, increase the humidity, change or get rid of the carpeting, or both. Although a small room-sized humidifier may help, these steps are often too expensive to be practical. A less expensive (and correspondingly less effective) step is to avoid wearing leather-soled shoes or clothes made of synthetic fibers. (If possible, compute in the nude.)"

"Fundamental to a marriage is each partner's willingness to do what's necessary to work out differences."

Question: How can I encourage friends and family to attend?
Single men, you can avoid being wait-listed by bringing single women as your guests. That helps us to maintain the balance between men and women. That's not as difficult as some people think. Your partner need not be someone with whom you have a romantic or an intimate relationship. She could be a neighbor, a co-worker, or a family member.
We know single men who have brought female neighbors, friends, and women from work. One guy brought two women he met in a Dale Carnegie course. Another brought his sister, and some have brought women from church.
Try it! You could start by casually mentioning the joys of clothes-free recreation to your female friends. In answer to "How was your weekend?", you could respond, "I visited a nudist club, and it was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life!" Avoid being excessively enthusiastic; just answer her questions sincerely and completely. Let her bring up the subject again; if she feels like you're pressuring her, she'll probably back off.
After she's asked questions a couple of times, direct her to this web site. You've probably noticed that it's written in a very encouraging, sensitive style that many women appreciate. There's even a special page for women, which includes comments from women who are glad they trusted us enough to try nudism.
She might be more comfortable if she reads about our protective attitude toward kids, even if she doesn't have any or wouldn't bring them. Most people wouldn't want to bring their children until they've checked us out themselves, and that's OK. All we want to achieve is for her to learn about the comfortable, safe environment we provide.
After she's read our information, mention that you could arrange for her to visit a club.
Don't seem aggressive! The harder you push, the more she'll suspect that you're just hoping to see her undressed. Suggest that she could go when you won't be there, or that you'd be willing to accompany her if she'll be more comfortable attending with somebody she knows. Be sure she knows that you'll be discreet, not telling others that she's gone with you. That should be her decision.
Or suggest that she bring one or two of her female friends. It's often easier to bring two women, than one. Something men will never understand, like going to the rest room together.
Of course, every individual might respond differently, but these approaches have helped many people overcome that initial hesitancy to try nudism.
Be aware of the influence of your own subconscious attitude. If you expect her to think it's "dirty" or for some other reason turn you down, count on it, she probably will!
