Ever since I became a nudist I find myself doing things I would never have done in my prior life.

Why naturism won’t make it as mainstream | Zjuzdme.org http://zjuzdme.org/blog/2014/12/16/why-naturism-wont-make-it-as-mainstream/
"Because of this. Money. There is money to be made in clothes. Nudists don’t wear clothes so there’s no money to be made of that group. But clothes aren’t the only thing. As I’ve mentioned before, the porn industry heavily relies on nudity, because that sells. Selling is money. If everyone goes around naked then there’s no incentive to buy something with naked people in it."

Clothes-free Living: Trouble in Nudeville http://nudeweatherman.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/trouble-in-nudeville.html
"My reaction to the programme can be summed up by one word - sadness. Some folks have been very angry about it, some ambivalent, a few optimistic, but on watching some of the highlights again I just couldn’t help feeling a overwhelming sense of dejection. This was compounded by the objective part of me being satisfied that the programme makers had indeed shown club naturism for what it is. The stereotype is confirmed. Joe Public would feel vindicated to claiming naturism is as eccentric, outdated and outmoded as they initially believed.
I am sad and increasingly frustrated about the general direction organised naturism is headed. British Naturism and club naturism have a great deal in common understandable given their common history. Injecting the effort needed to change the stereotype of BN and naturist clubs equates to the effort needed to turn an ocean liner…the momentum is great, the time headed in the same direction long….and the world has changed around it.
What’s the problem? Well in my opinion it’s two-fold. First is a lack of genuine effort. Second is a lack of direction. Many in naturist circles talk a good game. Many openly agree that naturism needs to change to catch up with modern cultural and societal modes. Unfortunately it seems to stop there.”
As Plymouth naturists meet for their 20th naked swim a Herald reporter strips off (her socks) to find out why | http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/Plymouth-naturists-meet-20th-naked-swim-Herald/story-25716663-detail/story.html
Sorry, but as naturists we continue to appear to be either stupid or downright dishonest when we repeat the mantra “There is no relationship between nudity and sex”. It’s bullshit. Yes, nudism or naturism is not about overt sexual activity, but there is most definitely a relationship between nudity and sex, and we all know that to be true, yet we continue to say this over and over whenever a reporter asks a question. Naturism is healthy for human sexuality in both body and mind. I share this link over and over - does anyone actually take the time to read it? Go to this page http://www.naturistsociety.com/tns/resources/images/205ARGUE.pdf and READ IT. The word “sex”, or variations theorf, appears no less than 152 times, including the statement “Nudists, as a group, are healthier sexually than the general population”. Nudists, or naturists if you prefer, put their sexuality out in the open and learn to CONTROL it. The nudist idea is not about engaging in sexual BEHAVIOR, but it most certainly has a lot to do with human sexuality. This type of statement that there is “no relationship between nudity and sex” is absurd, ignorant, and misleading.

The Thoughtful Naturist: No more secrecy http://thoughtfulnaturist.blogspot.com/2014/12/no-more-secrecy.html
"…sometimes it is still difficult being a naturist in society because we may still be misunderstood. It would be easier simply to conform, dress at all times, shut up and merge into the background. But wishing to be true to myself, to live a life I feel is honest and harmless to others even if different from everyday life, I have decided that openness will help bring about change."

"If Grindr did not altogether revolutionize online meetings, it has been on the market long enough to have inspired many imitators, apps with names like Scruff and Mister and Hornet and Jack’d to have given critics of its technical shortcomings plenty of grounds for complaint and to have provided material for moralists who accuse it of fostering misogyny and racism and, also, as the blogger Choire Sicha once did, to characterize it as “the biggest, scariest gay bar” in the world."

A Not-So-Brief and Extremely Sordid History of Cheerleading | Mother Jones http://www.motherjones.com/media/2014/12/cheerleader-history-timeline
"1979: The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Inc. sues Pussycat Cinemas Ltd. for trademark infringement in the porn movie Debbie Does Dallas. In it, the lead character, dressed in a uniform nearly identical to that of the Cowboys cheerleaders, exchanges sex for money in order to save up to travel to Dallas to try out for the "Texas Cowgirls." The group is prohibited from distributing the film, but still goes on to sell 50,000 copies. The movie spawned later remakes and sequels, including Debbie Does Wall Street (1991), Debbie Does New Orleans (2000), Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical (2002), and Debbie Does Dallas…Again (2007)."
