The Popularity of Naturism In Canada & Launch of a Fresh Young Naturist Group

Ask anyone who is not from around here what they think of when they hear ” naughty mature nudist ,” and the first answer will likely be “Cold.” It’s merely the stereotype our nation’s picked up, and with great reason.
It may surprise you, then, to hear that being naked is quite a common thing up here. Not in public, mind you; we are, normally, a quiet, shy culture that strives to offend no one. But it is a rare Canuck really who’s never gone skinny-dipping on a hot July night at a cottage, or stripped off at a deserted beach, or lounged around your house with only a towel.
The most recent Federation of Canadian Naturists survey, conducted by a respected third party statistics firm, suggests that about two thirds of Canadians have some level of nudie in us. Almost half the state is OK with being naked around the home, 60 percent of us like sleeping naked, and totally one quarter of Canadians believe that skinny dipping in mixed company or stripping off at the sand would be a excellent idea.

Ontario alone has at least nine official naturist venues, and we are conscious of a half-dozen other popular spots – and hundreds of unofficial swimming holes – where clothes just ain’t desired. We’re, after all, at precisely the same latitude as the French Mediterranean coast, with a climate which is highly conducive to the clothing-free life for one third of the year.
What, though, is a poor frozen Canadian to do in the cold season, when we’re putting on 16 pieces of insulated garments to go plug in the block heater and crank up the snowblower? While it’s sometimes tempting to give up and hibernate until spring, there is no demand to alter who we are only because the weather’s less than perfect.
We may not manage to go out in the cold (at least not for long), but the chief reasons for societal nudity – the honesty, the openness, the freedom, the relaxation, the equality, the admiration, the interesting – are equally as valid indoors. We ease something tasty in the oven, we put on good quality music, we break out the beverages. It’s difficult to remain dressed when you’re basking in the glow of a cranked-up woodstove, even if it’s twenty below zero outside.

The most challenging part, really, is finding individuals to share this with. Remember those statistics we mentioned earlier? Those were gathered from people who knew they had stay anonymous. We are still a quiet, timid culture, and we are taught which you do not talk about such things, just in case someone might disapprove. The risk of being hassled by a annoying prude, or of having to answer difficult questions from friends and family, appear to count heavily on people’s thoughts.
Anecdotal evidence and our own experience indicates that these will not be really difficulties – but the anxiety that they could be difficulties is actual, which fear is frequently enough to prevent from trying things they truly might like to do.

Our obvious next step, then, will be to create environments where young folks like us, many of whom are just beginning to experience the clothing-optional life, can feel comfortable and relaxed, in a recognizable culture and around supporting peers. Some states in the US have FKK-related groups, and we are starting to spin up the Kingston-Frontenac Free Body Society (KFFBS) in eastern Ontario.
What’s the Kingston-Frontenac Free Body Society? We’re an 18-to-late-30s social group who enjoy new friendships and old, relaxing fun in the sun, and new notions for open minds. We enjoy sensible conversation, cutting edge science and good literature.
We enjoy good food and drink, fun and laughter. We like the feel of sunlight and breeze on our bodies. We’re about creating a positive, safe and friendly space where you can relax, de-stress and just love being individual.
The Kingston, Ontario region has some of the finest outside on earth, and we take total advantage of it – whether hiking, swimming, snowshoeing, sailing or just lounging around naked on the strand. We attempt to create a space that’s welcoming and comfortable for everyone.
KFFBS is a female-friendly, LGBTQQetc. friendly, no-pressure environment. If this seems attractive, come read more about us. And, if you’re in our geographic and demographic range, introduce yourself and come on out!
We have a four-cord heap of firewood in the drop to make sure of that.
