Welcome to JMF's Nudist/Naturist Pages

Welcome to this new area of my main web site, with information on nudism and clothing-optional recreation. Please take a moment if you wish to sign my guestbook. I hope that you find your visit useful and enjoyable!

  • If you aren't sure what nudism really is, or are wondering what this whole clothing-optional business is about, you might want to start with my Intro to Nudism.
  • For trip reports and directions to some clothing-optional beaches and resorts my family and I have visited (or would like to visit!) please check out my Favorite Spots.
  • If you're in the market to replace that threadbare towel, or are wondering where you can buy a Roleez beach cart, try my Naturist Goods and Services, or for books on nudism, my Naturist Reading Room and Bookstore.

What's New

Updated November 11, 2002

Am in the process of moving from the old Nudism WebRing to a new Naturism & Nudism ring started by Dennis Kirkpatrick. Maintenance of the old Nudism WebRing had been allowed to lapse, and a number of inappropriate sites which have nothing to do with nudism have since joined while the door was left unguarded. Thanks Dennis for working to clean up this situation, and let's all enjoy the new Ring.

Updated March 20, 2002

It has been the year from heck for me schedule-wise, so far less frequent updates of late. I am working slowly on updating dead links and updating the news articles and guestbook. For starters, though, I have posted new 2002 parking pass and fee information on my Gunnison Beach page.

Updated May 25, 2001

My site is now listed as a nudism resource on The Open Directory Project ( (and the many web directory sites that use the DMOZ information as a basis for their own listings)! Based on the web traffic statistics for my site, it looks like the listing went up on DMOZ about May 3rd.

The domain name (a nudist search engine) seems to be defunct; it now redirects you to, which appears to be a pay-for-photos site. I have removed my front-page banner link to nudistsun.
