Let’s revive our encouragement and development of all kinds of nude-themed artistic expression that observe nature, fertility, sustainability. We have to design far more activities around these artistic forms of expression. For a great encounter along these lines, you may consider attending the annual Northeast Naturist Festival someday, which will be held at Empire Haven in Moravia NY – it’s over 190 workshops, including all kinds of artwork.

How about linking with many of the non-nudie artists out there and inviting them into http://modestperson.com/views/discovered-nudist-notices.php ? Many artists are implicitly in tune with and schooled in ancient types of unclothed art. Our events and actions should elevate nudity to an art form, high above vulgar lewdness and demolishing public misconceptions that nudity = sex = dirty.

Well-Being, Food, Sustainability
An understanding of ambient sexuality as a worldwide power opens up whole areas of thought and anxiety for the naturist. We should be concerned about all aspects of social morality and values that devalue the fertile sexual power of the nature. After all, we’re all inextricably part of mother nature.
So with that said, what about food? What about genetically modified seeds? What’s greed doing to the environmental equilibrium of natural sexual power and the ultimate health of our planet? For the benefit of greed / gain, some corporations seek to force feed’ us genetically modified food many of which are banned in a number of European nations!
What about invasive, highly ecologically destructive practices including un-zoned, unregulated hydro-fracking? The repercussions of which may destroy our land, water, and ultimately the ability of our planet to be healthy and fruitful. Let our nakedness stand as a protest and a reminder that we are not consumer units that can be force-fed junk food and got to bow to the violent exploitation of our land by the avaricious few among us.
Among the actions we’re leading within the Naturist Portal Upstate New York Chapter is Naked Locavore Cooking. This summer we had our first occasion which happened on June 29, 2013. We celebrated healthy, natural, organic food – free of hormones, genetic modification, and dangerous processed food additives. Not only this, but we stood nude, as if protesting against people who need to strip our land through un-zoned, hyrdro-fracking, threatening the fertile, productive, agricultural tradition that is the Upstate Finger Lakes Region.
Here again, we see that our nudity can be elevated to some grander cause. One of stewarding and protecting the health of our world, such as the sexual power of its natural fertility. This is so much more commendable in relation to the organization of nudity = sex = dirty.
Activism
Activism? Many nudies perceive activism exclusively as an action against a specific law, a means of gaining more legal rights to be nude, or as the fight for gender equality (topfree movement). It is needless to say all those things. But, at once, it is much more. We have to understand this to be able to focus our activity.
Activism is in fact sex-positive. Once again, let’s presume that most folks on the planet suppose the equation of nudity = sex = dirty is authentic. Going back to our first website about the inadequacy of our nudie language, the generalized term – sex – is rather worthless. It needs additional clarification in the equation of nudity = sex = dirty.
What the people generally mean when using the word “sex” is active sexuality. Thus it’s no great mystery why things like sexual titillation, intercourse, orgasm are immediately associated. When done freely, active sexuality is normally considered improper, obscene and lewd (not to mention – against the law almost universally).
Of course active orgasmic sex done in private isn’t lewd! Need I even point out the nudie culture, like most of society, values that active/orgasmic sex is a personal matter? Naturism is not hedonism and this really is exactly why suitable activism is sex-positive. Fellow nudies regard the privacy of orgasmic, active sex by acting appropriately while participating in public / social nudity.
Non-lewd display of our genitals restores honor to them. It strips away the curse that our body parts are somehow http://shockintown.com/post/now-i-sunbathe-only-nude/ ‘ by understanding that sexual titillation is a private matter. It is much easier for individuals to accept the sight of complete nudity, once free of the fear of an imposed and uncomfortable specter of unwanted lewd behaviour.
Simply speaking, non-lewd activism (in a broader sense), honors our genitals by showing that nudies are well behaved, and respectful. Concomitantly, that is why public sexual or lewd behaviour is so detrimental to the nudie cause. It’s, in many ways, a betrayal of the public trust and reinforces a genital-negative, sex-negative public opinion of naturism and societal nudity. It’s what can cause family members to think their nudie relative is getting a perv’ and gone off the deep end by adopting nudism and the naturist lifestyle.
