Why do people choose clothing-optional recreation?

Relaxation, stress relief, positive body image, and increasing self-esteem – there are many reasons for choosing clothing-optional and clothes-free recreation. At over 230 AANR affiliated clubs, resorts, and RV campgrounds you’ll meet a wide variety of people, diverse in age and profession.

Is nude recreation becoming more accepted?

The Roper Organization reported that 40 million Americans have skinny-dipped in mixed company.

Members can also join AANR World Adventures trips for nudist destinations worldwide.

How will we feel on the first visit to a club?

At AANR clubs you will find friendly people of all ages enjoying nude recreation in a secure atmosphere. You are accepted for who you are inside, not how you look on the outside. People who enjoy nude recreation develop a healthy body image which builds self-esteem. You may participate in social activities, or just relax around the pool until you feel comfortable.

What are the characteristics of an AANR club?

The atmosphere of an AANR club is wholesome and friendly. People enjoy everyday recreation activities such as swimming, walking, hiking, cycling, tennis, and volleyball. Clubs are staffed by people who arrange sports activities and events much like any resort. Staff members are careful about who enters the facility and if anyone seems to be there for the wrong reason, the staff will ask them to leave.
