Naturism is about body acceptance and body awareness, which makes it appropriate for everyone. According to a Zogby Pollclose to two-thirds of US adults agree: Legality is seldom an issue at these places. Misconceptions aside, naturism is not a code word for "sex" see below. Naturism is not something that should be forced, either on yourself or others.
Even if the law is on your side, public nudity is problematic in many jurisdictions.

Naturists do not deny the sexual nature of human beings, but they reject the all too prevalent view in our society that nudity and sex are synonymous, and that children should be "protected" from nudity regardless of context. According to a Zogby Pollclose to two-thirds of US adults agree: And while not all of them are naturists, the rapid growth the nude recreation industry has experienced in recent years suggests many are. Such exclusions are appropriate in some cases. Perhaps the best way to "become a naturist" is with the help of a friend or spouse who is a naturist. So too are there private clubs and resorts that are either clothing-optional, or where nudity is actually required.
