Naturism as a Way of Living: Advice on one page, easy reading.
This is important stuff, but as I wrote above these are only my opinions. Feel free to add to them, take away from them, re-write them, save them and reprint them anywhere you want and in whatever format you wish. They are opinions but they may help SOME in thinking through the issue and coming to their own understanding of the social environment and how it applies to their own family situation.
If YOU are planning on appearing in a bikini, being partly naked or fully naked in a digital photograph, offline or online, this article is not meant to preach the value of one truth or another to you, but it is offered as an aid to helping think about it.
Nudists believe all bodies are beautiful and should be respected. Looking at someone while they are nude is not wrong, but treating them differently because they enjoy being nude definitely would be!
On Dressing: I’m nominating this picture as the Best of the Day and it pretty much fits in with the phrase I have been thinking of most of the day. The phrase is: "It would be nice if we could all love our bodies the way some love their clothes!" ~ Centauri4
In conjunction with the recent launch of the trade, business and lifestyle promotion organization NACORBA.org, I want to let all tumblr Followers and those who may see this content only once know I am available to assist with content creation. I will be happy to:
- Compose new copy based on a current website or Facebook presence.
- Compose a slogan or caption to accompany an image (one you submit).
- Interview owners regarding the history or vision for their business.
- Interview members regarding their adoption of social Nudism, life as a Nudist, best experiences while nude or even WORST experiences (because even these present an opportunity to learn and grow).
- Travel to Nudist or Naturist venues and compose body-positive, lifestyle positive photographic images and assist with printing or print layout tasks (I use simple, free tools to edit and compose images for tumblr).
- Assist in the recording of social Nudist video, audio clips, radio commercials, soundbites, MP3 files, etc. (each item should have the opinion of five to seven people NOT participating in its production to get an idea of how it will be received).
If you have enjoyed the content of Naturism as a Way of Living either in its entirety or partially, I invite you to contact me and tell which Posts have been the most meaningful to you! Please tell your friends, neighbors, fellow nudists and anyone curious about nude recreation or nudist living about this tumblog. Since NaaWoL's creation I have worked to assemble the best images the Internet has to offer, created a few of my very own (featuring myself), or modified other images in what I believe has been a "lifestyle complimentary" manner.
There is a little humor meant to be in my images occasionally, and as with all things this is meant to convey the idea that "if we can’t laugh at ourselves, something is definitely wrong." and I hope this also comes through in the blog. Thank you, ~ Centauri4, May 8th, 2014

Two or so very well written opinions.
Families should be able to talk about everything, because these are the “Full Trust” relationships in life! Protect them!
The Person Inside of You .. Inside of Us
Appreciating the things we share in common, both physically and spiritually, is the best way to connect with each other. We all have hearts and souls, we all have brains and lungs, and we all travel the same path from birth to death; so why not embrace our similarities and love each other for the shared journey we take together?
Your parents once feared the exact same things you do, and then they confronted those fears and survived. Your parents were nervous the time they kissed and the first time they saw each other naked (probably); life is all about repeating cycles of exposure to the same challenges, fears and obstacles!
If we can discover an ability to set aside the things we fear the most and celebrate our commonality, then we have truly come to know each other - each others experience in this life! Nudity does not hurt our relationships, it helps them, but only as long as we recognize the true beauty in each other - the heart, the soul, the brain and the shared journey.

The most important concept of simple, non-lewd nudity, as many of my followers already know, is contained within the phrase: “Unless someone is exposing themselves or a sexual organ to gratify or arouse someone other than them self, it’s really not anything against the law,” said [Shawnee County Sheriff Herman] Jones.
Naturism as a Way of Living hopes this type of responsible partying is an emerging trend for the future! In a dimly lit club it does not matter what you are wearing and there BETTER NOT be any “accidental” (read ‘unwanted’) groping, or else YOU will face the wrath of the group.
Any successfully implemented “Group mentality” means basic rules for appropriate behavior have been decided upon, refined and then approved. It only requires about ten basic rules to govern the groups’ behavior in the broadest sense; this is by my empirical observation of course, not academic or scientific research. It just seems as though the happy groups I have participated with had no more than a one page charter or definition of etiquette to guide them! I believe it is only necessary to adopt bylaws or articles if and when the group decides to invest in real property together.
A nudist Glow Party consisting of consenting adults, or even expanded to include entire families, sounds like great fun and there should literally be no more risk involved than a fully clothed party. Just as long as everyone knows the rules, respects the rules, respects each other and is not afraid to speak up if someone is disrespectful.
It really is that simple: Group self-policing and an appreciation of the privilege of attending a nude event are all anyone needs! I believe the enjoyment derived from participating in a Glow Party as I did a couple of years ago at White Tail Resort (an evening family dance event with glowing things), is a very special time! It was great fun and I know there were first-timers at the event, but I do not know if they returned to the resort again based on the experience of that night.
Ryliibelle is waiting for you to enjoy free adult video chat live at Chaturbate.Com. Enjoy free sex chat with the Official Ryliibelle here.
Serious “Nude economy” posting: Although the types of content presented on websites such as Chaturbate and other, similar ones generally tends towards the purely “Adult” content, I think at the same time it is doing something to support people. These websites are generating income for a percentage of those ACTING on them; creating content everyday. And as in the example I am posting right now, Ryliibelle is NOT getting into the realm of pornography right now and she has been online sharing herself in nearly complete nudity for 2 hours! 2 HOURS! That is a long time to be running a service online in an unscripted manner and at the same time attracting 2,471 viewers.
Whether or not each person reading this post agrees with Ryliibelle and others performing this type of work for a living is entirely up to each of you. I am not here to vote in favor of or against this type of work. Seriously, I do not have a paid membership with Chaturbate and have never had one, but I think it does serve a certain purpose to the world community. In at least one way, it is normalizing nudity and probably introducing some percentage of the viewing audience to nudity as they have never, ever seen it before!
The important question of whether any viewers are under the legal age of consent for viewing such things in their region or country is a separate issue; we will have to cover that topic at a later date and time.
Maybe check out what she is doing and form an opinion for yourself. All I am doing with this posting is inspiring a topic for discussion and at the same time, probably, introducing a portion of the Naturism as a Way of Living audience to a type of nudity they have never, ever seen before!
Ryliibelle is married.
