The The Naturist Society (TNS) and the American Association For Nude Recreation (AANR) are observing tomorrow, Saturday, July 14, 2018, as International Skinny-Dipping Day. Grab a friend, strip out of those clothes and jump into a body of water for some old-fashioned style swimming in just your natural skin. For those who live in colder climates, a heated indoor pool is highly recommended. No one wishes frost-bite on anyone, although I’m sure there are a few who would welcome a cooling experience from the summer’s heat and humidity!
2018 Nude Recreation Week
primarily observed in the USA
July 9 – 15, 2018
It’s that time once again, Nude Recreation Week! It is a co-sponsored effort between The Naturist Society (TNS) and the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). It is held annually during the month of July in order for the observance to coincide with the National Recreation and Park Association’s (NRPA) celebration of July as Parks and Recreation month. The AANR is a member of NRPA. This is also the month that Americans usually vacation and travel, away from their jobs.
When I first saw these video clips, my thoughts were returned to an earlier time in my life when I falsely assumed it was my ordained mission in my life to convert the entire universe into practicing nudity. I envisioned someday being canonized the Patron Saint of All Naturists/Nudists Forever, Amen. You may commence the celestial angelic drum-roll now, if you please! Admittedly, I was young and foolish but at least I was thinking big and trying to find a worthy cause to champion. Alas, reality set in by the time that I graduated secondary school and I eventually became a professor.
