If you have ever had a conversation with a nudist, visited the American Association for Nude Recreation website, or read the AANR newsletters, you are probably remarkably familiar with all the benefits of nudism or naturism. We know that living textile-free can help improve self-esteem and body image and can be very empowering and liberating. Health benefits include our bodies receiving more Vitamin D from the sun and better sleep with the lack of constraining pajamas among many others.


Can you name the event that took place in 2018 that inspired 2505 women to “skinny dip” at Meaghermore Beach, Ireland?  The event was “The Great British Skinny Dip,” one of the first International Skinny Dip Day gatherings and the largest one to take place to date.


 The beautiful days and nights of Summer are upon us! AANR-West clubs and resorts are in their high season and special events are in full swing. Between events, they offer pools to enjoy, hot tubs to soak in, sports to play, nature paths to hike, and many other activities for fun and relaxation.   This is the perfect time to visit your favorite AANR-West clubs or try one out for the first time.

2022 WINR Paint and Sip Event

The first in-person WINR event, a “Paint and Sip Party,” was held on Saturday, April 23rd, in Utah in conjunction with the Southern Utah Naturists Society (SUNS).

The SUNS travel club was chosen to recognize the clubs that are growing and sharing nudism with others without the benefit of a resort. In addition, the SUNS expressed interest in co-hosting a women’s event when the time came for an in-person event.

Word on Wellness—Exercise is Key

Daily exercise affects our overall well-being. Nudists love to exercise almost as much as we love to eat. We’re outside soaking up Vitamin D while playing sports, running 5Ks, doing yoga, Zumba or swimming. It’s easy to see how running, biking or tennis strengthens your heart, builds muscles and stamina. In combination with a healthy diet, exercise also builds brain health by keeping your arteries clear and open and maintaining a good blood supply.

A Beautiful Day to Run a 5K at Shangri La Ranch

On October 16 2021 Shangri La Ranch held its annual Bare Buns Desert 5K Run and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect.  It was cold enough as people gathered for the 8:00am start that some couples were entwined to stay warm, but once the race started the temperature seemed to warm quickly to a comfortable mid-60s.
