    Unfortunately, none of the links above still work... I've searched on the internet about this subject, and I didn't find much...

    The article on Wikipedia:

    Freikörperkultur (FKK) is a German movement whose name translates to Free Body Culture. It endorses a naturistic approach to sports and community living. Behind that is the joy of the experience of nature or also of being nude itself, without direct relationship to sexuality. The followers of this culture are called traditional naturists, FKK'ler, or nudists. The German nudist movement was the first worldwide and marked the start of an increased acceptance of public nudity in Germany. Today, there are only few legal restrictions on public nudity in Germany.

    History


    Early German nudists, 1897

    Beginnings in the 18th century

    In many parts of central Europe up until the 18th century, people bathed naked in rivers and lakes, although often separately by sex. Beginning in the late 18th century, public nudity became increasingly taboo. At the same time, Lord Monboddo (1714–1779) practised and preached nude bathing as a revival of Ancient Greek attitudes toward nudity.

    "Nude culture" and life reforms – up to World War I

    In 1898 the first Freikörperkultur club was founded in Essen. In 1900 more and more Swedish baths arose in rooms in Berlin and on the North and Baltic seas and a naturist movement began in France.

    The FKK movement was based on an attitude towards life where the naked body is not a source of shame. Freikörperkultur does not involve sexuality. Nakedness in the shower or sauna is not Freikörperkultur, since it is practically necessary. Nudity has to have prior group consent, and therefore requires no reserved zones, such as separate beaches or club areas.

    Although I support people practicing a relaxed and healthy attitude towards nudity, I find it a bit odd to make a 'thing' out of it, as in making it into a movement, having nude gatherings and that sort of thing. Does being nude out in the open really give these people that much enjoyment, in and of itself?

    If you wish to express your opinion on Naturism, there's another thread for it: https://forums.skadi.net/threads/964...wards-Naturism



    I think the thread we're in now is more for information...
