People all over the world enjoy nonsexual nude recreation. Some people call it nudism. Some call it naturism. Some call it skinny-dipping. Whatever name you use, it has been enjoyed for centuries by cultures almost everywhere.
Anyone who has ever tossed aside their swimsuit knows that unmistakable feeling of exhilaration, freedom and comfort that only skinny-dipping in the nude brings. If you would like to enjoy that wonderfully satisfying and natural feeling again, you don’t have to do it alone.
Today, you can skinny-dip in hundreds of cities, states, territories and countries if you know where to look.
Here is our list of 10 websites to help you skinny-dip around the world.
