Dating Advice for Naturists

We discuss dating for naturists/nudists. Because single men are the ones who seem to have the greatest challenge in naturism, we focus our advice on them. We interview Melissa who is an affirmed naturist and Christine who is not but would consider it for the right guy.

A summary of the dating advice:

  1. Don’t focus on naturist/nudist dating sites. Most, and possibly all of them, are scams.
  2. Don’t limit yourself to existing naturists.
  3. Don’t make naturism the focus of your profile but don’t keep it secret either.
  4. Gentlemen, nude pictures (and dick pics in particular) don’t work.
  5. Keep trying; you need to talk to many people before you find someone who is compatible. If you’re in Canada, our survey suggests you’ll need to talk to 10 people before you find one who is willing to try naturism.
  6. Treat people with respect. If you know someone who has trouble with this, have them read our webpage on Making Friends in Naturism.

The New Naturist Living Show Website

With episode 101 (or CI in the Roman Numerals we’ve been using) and as we approach our 10 year anniversary, we launch our new website. The new WordPress website and unique domain (instead of a subdomain of Bare Oaks) allow for better features, more flexibility, broader distribution, and better search engine optimization.

We think that the transition went well and that we fixed all bugs. But it’s hard to be perfect! Please let us know if you find any problems by sending us a note: contact@NaturistLivingShow.com
