Nude Recreation Week is this week, July 9-15! With the recent heat wave of record-breaking high temperatures being felt across much of the country starting off this summer it seems like the perfect time to get cooled off and celebrate the 37th annual celebration by stripping down.
The American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and The Naturist Society (TNS) celebrate the event every year since its creation by The Naturist Society 37 years ago notes the Huffington Post.
You don’t have to be a nudist or naturist to celebrate the annual event and all the fun that goes along with it. Carolyn Hawkins, AANR spokesperson in Kissimee, Fla. encourages anyone and everyone to get out and get naked:
“Nude Recreation Week is the perfect time for the public to try something new and fun, while at the same time, it gives nudists all across the U.S, and Canada, an excuse to tell their friends the real reason why they always looked so relaxed and refreshed when they get back from vacations.”
She also adds:
“If people would only try it once, I think they’ll see the joys of being naked outdoors. During Nude Recreation Week, most clubs open the doors for free and let people come in and see how much wholesome fun nude recreation can be.”
MSNBC reports hundreds of thousands of Americans will visit one of the 260 AANR approved nudist resorts and clubs across North America spending an estimated $440 million on their fun nude vacations or “nakations,” making it one of the fastest growing trends in the travel industry. The typical recreations at the clubs include naked yoga, golf, billiards, and even more interesting ( if not bizarre) activities like naked needlepoint (ouch!) and even car shows just to name a few.
To top off this year’s Nude Recreation week, The American Association for Nude Recreation will be having the Amazing Canvas Nudist Face Body Painting Event contest on July 14.
