Naturism : A World of Freedom
If you are self-confident enough, naturism is a great lifestyle choice and brings a sense of liberation that you simply cannot imagine until you’ve tried it. There are numerous beaches and resorts that offer the perfect opportunity to strip of your clothes and inhibitions.
Why are so many swingers also naturists? The truth is that swingers only make up a small percentage of the much larger naturist community, but when looking the other way round you can see that the majority of swingers are also keen naturists. The reason for this is that, by their very nature, individuals who enjoy the swinging scene are comfortable with their bodies and have the confidence and control to enjoy the freedom of naturism, so to some extent, swinging and naturism are natural extensions of your right to enjoy your body and free you spirit.
