Nudist societies believe that they should be able to live as they wish, with or without clothes.
By not wearing clothes, they believe that can be closer to nature because naturally, everybody is born without clothes.
If you can make it through without turning bright scarlet or bursting out in incredulous laughter every few seconds, you’ll find an intriguing and funny look at the UK’s least prudish citizens. “We’re just ordinary people, we like doing what everybody else likes doing,” says Andrew Welch, the marketing director of British Naturism, wearing just a pair of glasses and a lanyard.
“So it would be if we were all motorcyclists or knitters or real ale drinkers.” The, er, thrust of the film is around a group of naturists attempting to change the demographic of their hobby – can they tempt a new, younger generation of carefree clothes-ditchers?
A new series in particular, “Adam Zoekt Eva,” pits a naked woman against naked men for some kind of dating show.

At the end of every hourlong episode, the two romance-seekers analyze what they've learned from their dates — and themselves — before deciding whether to move forward with their potential love matches.
If you’re planning to watch The Great British Skinny Dip, be prepared: there is a stupendous amount of nudity here.
Of course, the Channel 4 documentary’s title does hint at the content – but in looking at the exploits of British nudists, it's worth stating explicitly that there’s a lot of bare flesh on display.
Strangely, it’s not so often that you hear about nudists and naturists, even though many people are uncomfortable with their practices.
Nudism is the practice of walking around naked, with absolutely no clothes on, for all hours of the day and night.
