The Naked Woman Within Screaming To Get Out

As a female nudist I wonder why it is in a world where we have fought throughout the years for equality that there are not more female nudists?
Many women have fought for our rights to bare our breasts in public just as our male counterparts do and won the fight, however we don’t go out in public bare breasted. WHY?

So after a great deal of communication with women I thought it best to put these issues in writing. Now please do not shoot the messenger. My only objective here is to create a more comfortable and understanding message to let the ladies know that it is OK to be nude.

Society as a whole has sent out mixed messages throughout the years and some of these have created a great deal of confusion and anxiety for woman. Lets see, your too fat, your too skinny, you too short, your too tall, your too white, your to dark, you have stretch marks and scars that should be hidden. You will be frowned upon if you get nude in front of others and be labelled with horrible names. Tramp, whore, ect. ect. I think you get the picture here.

Then of course we have the perverts of the world that spend all there waking moments staring, glaring and ogling women. Sun up to sun down it never ends, leaving women constantly feeling violated and filthy. sound about right?

Here is one I am sure you ladies can relate to. The guy does something of a sexual nature and he gets a slap on the back from his buddies. Way to go mate. However, on the flip side a women does something of the same nature and we are just not the kind girl you want to take home to mom. Double standard?

Ladies in general may have many hangs up when it comes to their bodies and I believe they feel a sense of comfort hiding behind clothes, but in doing so they are only falling deeper into the abyss of poor self acceptance, lack of confidence and even depression in some cases. I don’t think I have ever met a female nudist that did not show how confident they are with themselves.

I know ladies, that it doesn’t help when we are bombarded with images of diet induced Twiggy’s of the world and are continually told that they are the norm and that we as women should aspire to be just like them. Well I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to, nor do I need to look like them. I’m happy with who I am and you to should be just as happy with who you are.

Being free to be who you are in a Naturist environment is as liberating as you can get, being at ease and feeling alive, secure and confident about yourselves is what it can be for you as it is for many female nudists today. All my female friends are close to me and are special, wonderful women. They are who they are and there is no competition between any one us. We are who we are. You would never know who’s the nurse, who’s the doctor, who’s the dancer. Why is this? because we don’t have to hide behind our garments, which in truth may identify who we are, where we have been, how rich or poor we are. No labels just us as wonderful people.

I want to encourage all women to explore all of your beauty and believe me you are all beautiful both inside and out. I would suggest you log on to discussion groups to help you get a better understanding as to what Naturism has to offer. It is far more than just getting naked.

  1. Well written Yvonne Gibson !! I/we wish more women including many of our friends and family could come to terms with your open views of personal acceptance. You my friend are an inspiration.

    • Thank You my dear friends, always willing and able to spread the word surrounding a wonderfully rich life that most people should really give a second thought to the experience. I say “Get Naked” and meet some of the best friends you could ever want and or imagine.

  2. You’ve touched upon all the bases pretty well, and answered your own question: “Why don’t women go about topless even when legal?”

    They don’t because just since something is legal doesn’t mean that it’s ‘acceptable’ within the society one lives in. Topfree women can expect the same kind of undesirable attention, legal or not, and that attention is not something most women care to attract.

    However, in a socially nude situation the rules are different, as are the folks one is surrounded by. The attitudes and judgements of Textile society are left behind and women are finally able to feel totally comfortable in their own skins! That concept is repeated over and over agian throughout our community and is reflected in almost every woman’s description of her nudist/naturist experience. (

    While the efforts to legalize public nudity are laudable, public nudity is not an aspect of social nudism and should not be confused with it. We enjoy ourselves among other like-minded folks and do not seek out public ridicule; that’s for other activists who may be pursuing other goals and may or may not share our philosophy and beliefs.

    It’s that philosophy which makes women comfortable in their bodies when among fellow nudists/naturists; not whether it’s technically legal to offend others while enduring unwholesome Textile behavior.

    Laws may be changing here and there and becoming less restrictive (as nude beaches are closed!), but public attitudes are deeply ingrained and comfortable casual public nudity is likely to be reserved for the very thick-skinned few for a long time to come.

    Excellent article, and we’ll be sharing it soon in Community News!

  3. Whatever the reasons – and we suspect they are many and more complex than one might think – you’ve helped to encourage more women to try naturism for themselves, and for that we say thank you.

  4. I tell ladies that they are more likely to get leered at at the local Walmart than a nude beach or resort but they rarely believe me.

    Peace ~ Bear

  5. Thank you, Yvonne for posting this. You are an inspiration to nudist women and this article helps women
    overcome their burden with body image. My husband Gary has been my support to be come a nudist over 30 years ago.


    • Yvonne is a great friend for all of us but has been a special inspiration for many women over the years. She’s an absolute fearless nudist.
