Arielle Castillo from the webcast Fusion visits with Florida Young Naturists at Sunsport Gardens in Palm Beach County, Fla. for their Naked Spring Bash.
“You might think of nudism — or ‘naturism,’ depending on where you want to go, semantically — as solely the territory of diehard, original hippies and, like, Germans,” Castillo said. “And that’s true to some extent. But the naturist demographic is changing, with a rising number of 18-to-30-year-olds stripping off their clothes–and pretenses–for some recreation in the buff. So, naturally, we had to check it out. Turns out when you swap a bathing suit for a birthday suit, it becomes weirdly easy to make new friends and let it all hang out, both literally and figuratively.”
