While his business classmates were all busy networking and planning their stock portfolios, Lannon was living free. Instead he swam naked with middle aged people and their kids during nudist night at a community pool. I felt like [my peers] were jumping through hoops. Lannon dabbled with the idea of starting a naturist club at Western, but feared it would draw loads of frat boys just wanting to see naked women.

Jared is an undergraduate student majoring in Guitar Performance. Naturism, or Nudism, is a social movement that advocates and practices social nudity in an effort to encourage self-respect and respect for others. Advocates believe that they came into the world in the nude and therefore they feel closer to nature and the earth when they are in the nude. They also believe that by removing clothing, which establishes social status, each participant becomes an equal person, thus returning to their most natural state. Nudist colonies, also known as naturist communities, have often been viewed as strange or taboo by mainstream communities.
There is a huge sector of the travel business called Adult Alternative. Popular destinations are Cancun Mexico and Thailand where men can enjoy sex holidays and both straight and homosexual dalliances. None of this takes place at AANR member clubs , who agree to keep the atmosphere clear of sexual vibes and attitudes. The only thing that is sexy is the outfits that come out at the Saturday night dance. The main difference is that swingers just want to be nude with their sex partners, but nudists just want to be nude period.
I am not a total prude, but I've always possessed a degree of awkwardness about nudity. So when I read that naturists have higher self-esteem than those who keep their clothes on, I decided to spend a week in the nude in the privacy of my own home to see what I could learn. I hoped that my naked experiment would make me more comfortable with my body and its imperfections.
