Have you ever thought about going to a social gathering wearing absolutely nothing? Well, for naturists, also referred to as nudists, this is quite the norm. Naturism, or nudism, which are used interchangeably, defines the practice of being nude, particularly in social settings.
While being naked in front of a group of friends may seem a bit unorthodox to some, it is a practice in which many North Carolinians partake. At the time, there were other organizations but were landed clubs, which require a substantial fee and are known for being more family-oriented. Being a somewhat private person, Roy prefers to keep his last name anonymous for this story. Give a brief description of NCN in your own words.
Aside from the obvious aspects of your organization, what is it to you? NCN is a group of nudists that enjoy the company of other nudists, so we try and get together at least once a month. When the weather is nice we have our events outdoors and when it cools down too much we come inside.
What motivated you to become a member? Had you had prior exposure to the naturist lifestyle? If so, for how long? My motive was to be a part of a small group that enjoyed the same thing I did — being nude and relaxing in the company of others that liked that lifestyle. I had belonged to a small club for about eight years near Raleigh, N.
Describe one of your most memorable experiences at an NCN gathering? It had to be the afternoon I told the club members my husband and I had gotten married, everyone toasted to that news. We have about 30 members in the club with membership north carolina nudes growing. Ages range from the mids to 80s. Most live close or in Charlotte, N. We care that they are a good person who enjoys and values the lifestyle.
When everyone is nude… everyone is the same and equal. The one big custom is that we are nude I know… Captain Obvious. Some ladies will wear a sheer sarong, but most enjoy being nude. Many men will wear a wide-brimmed hat to keep shoulders from burning.
We usually have a potluck-style lunch where the host lets everyone know what they will make and others will compliment that meal with a side dish or dessert. No other customs aside from being polite and not getting carried away if one is having an north carolina nudes beverage. What do you consider to be the cornerstone of your organization? What, most of all, does NCN represent? The freedom of being nude with people that enjoy the nudist lifestyle and having a safe place to gather and meet socially with those friends.
Does NCN have a mission statement, motto or mantra? Any core beliefs or philosophies? Describe some of the locations and environments where your gatherings take place. Do you have any special amenities? Do your gatherings ever have special themes or celebrate certain holidays? We will have themed events around some holidays. Dressing up is optional since we are all nude. Halloween can be interesting, as well as a small gag-gift exchange at Christmas.
Some homes have hot tubs, a pool, fish ponds and beautiful gardens to stroll through and just relax and enjoy the serenity of it all.
How does one become a member of NCN? Does NCN have any kind of screening or vetting process or application for membership? Dues, fees, other contributions?
Aside from the still-in-progress website, membership is by word of mouth. Members can and will bring a friend that may be interested in the lifestyle to an event. If the guest is still interested then membership can be offered. If interest is through the website, one of the board of directors will meet with in person, in public or their home, to answer any questions they may have regarding the club.
The first thing we do tell them is that it is NOT a swingers group or club. It is strictly a social club. Annual dues are very inexpensive and if you host an event your dues are reduced. Is being a naturist something you keep private or are discreet about in your everyday life? If so, why? Is this something that varies widely or is there more of a general consensus among members?
Discretion is important and I think most members would agree. Very skimpy thongs are legal as long as you are covered. I know there was a professor some time ago that was a member because Moonstone beach was alive and hopping at the time. Since then the beach was closed due to making it a bird sanctuary so no one can go through there any more.
What does a group have to do to get an application to lobby for a legal nude beach. I go to East beach on the main land not on Block Island where there are a few beaches that are clothes optional. It is very costly to go there on a ferry and north carolina nudes overnight. Hi…I am a nudists or naturists originally from long island, retired teacher from ny…new to South End Charlotte…I am a GNI member…hoping to find a local group.
Any details or info you can share would be very much appreciated… thanks Russ. Our news organization does not handle the memberships for organizations. Perhaps you can contact the GNI people to see if they can help you locate a group. Nudist hosts entertain their guests at parties where baring it all is liberating for those who are members of the group.
