North Carolina Naturists - About Us
NCN is a non-landed club which means we do not have a specific location. We are a group of individuals who enjoy being clothes-free in the company of others who feel the same way. Meetings and wholesome get-togethers are held at other members' homes as well as at area nudist resorts located in North and South Carolina. Meetings in each others' homes are open only to NCN members and approved prospective members. Our club has been in existence since April of 1981.

We are affiliated with the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR found at www.aanr.com). Information on the eastern region of AANR can be found at www.aanr-east.com. Please check out these web sites to get additional information on nudism/naturism.

What do I Pack?
What to pack? A light travel bag containing two towels per person (polite nudist etiquette means that you always carry your own towel to sit or lounge on and a second one for the pool), sun block, any athletic equipment and shoes you'll need, toiletries, and a cover-up for chilly days/nights or when you've had too much sun.

Although some clubs allow visitors to remain clothed while touring the club as a first timer, most clubs expect guests to be "clothed when practical, nude when appropriate." Visitors, as well as members, are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that would be considered acceptable at any other public social gathering. There will be people of all ages and backgrounds - families, couples, children, young and old - and they will all have one thing in common… they decided to participate in nude recreation. As a first timer, please make this important observation, even though you might anticipate it, a nude environment does not have any special sexual connotation.

"On my first visit, must I be completely nude right away?" At a clothing optional club the answer is no. At this type of club you can ease into it slowly. At a full nudist club, once you've toured the grounds, you're expected to be nude. At either style club you'll find yourself wanting to shed your "second skin" sooner rather than later. Why? Because people all around you are nude, quite relaxed, and enjoying their day. Here, being nude is the norm and it's more comfortable.

The benefits of nude recreation are based on acceptance of self and respecting the individuality and freedom of others. Experience the nudist lifestyle and you liberate your mind and body, you rediscover the joy you knew as a child… the spirit deep inside you.

 

 
 
Your First Visit
There are two types of clubs - landed and non-landed. Non-landed club members usually meet at each other's homes and attendance is usually restricted to members or prospective members. Landed clubs are generally open to other nudists, but some may have certain restrictions. They have their own grounds and facilities are are often referred to as resorts. Some are luxurious, others rustic.

Before deciding on a club for your first visit, be sure to check out their web site (we have links to area clubs on the left side of this web page). Is attendance restricted to people who belong to one of the two national nudist organizations, AANR or TNS? What facilities are offered? Does the tone of the resort, rustic or luxurious, fit with your tastes? Are any special activities planned for the dates of your anticipated visit? What are their admission and singles policies? What are the costs? Are pets allowed? Are rooms or campgrounds for overnight stays available? Are reservations required? Remember to plan your day out, get-away weekend, or vacation as you would any other. The more you know, the more comfortable you'll feel when you arrive.

Each club has its own policies regarding admission, activities, facilities, and the consumption of alcohol. As in any public place, underage drinking and the use of controlled substances is prohibited. All overt sexual activity is also prohibited. Naturist clubs are family-oriented.

Nude Recreation...A Woman's Perspective
The following article was taken from AANR (American Association for Nude Recreation) materials. Although it was written with landed clubs in mind, its essence also holds true for non-landed clubs like NCN. The main difference is that we find the same relaxation indoors in other members' homes as members of landed clubs find outdoors. Here's the article.

Do you remember skinny dipping when you were young - the luxurious feeling of freedom and innocent fun that you felt then? You owe it to yourself to rediscover the child in you, to recapture that innocence no matter what your age, your occupation, or your physical appearance. Self acceptance and total relaxation are two of nude recreation's greatest contribution to today's woman.

"One of the healthiest things I did for myself was to try nude recreation. I quickly learned that being nude is actually quite natural, what you might call a life enhancing experience. Why? Because having gone nude in a social setting, I now accept who I am and feel comfortable with my own body. Experiencing who I am on the inside has become more important to me than what I look like on the outside. Sure, I still enjoy being well groomed, but I no longer feel the stress associated with trying to wear trendy clothes or that I'm not living up to fashion magazine images of what my body is supposed to look like.

When I'm at an AANR club, I'm in a relaxed community. It's a very supportive environment. Being nude has become the most normal thing in the world. I sometimes wonder, you'll pardon this well-worn phrase, what took me so long. The people I've met are courteous and friendly, there are no pressures, no daily hassles. At a club it's easier to relate to people on the basis of who they really are, not by the image their clothes say they are. And I feel a sense of respect for me as an individual. It feels fabulous to be judged by who I am and not by the physical condition of my body or the style clothing I'm wearing. Now, whether I'm at a nudist club or at my job, my self esteem says, 'Hey, I am a beautiful person!' My whole being is more relaxed; I've never been this confident."

Whether you're married and you and your husband decide to go to a nudist club, or you're single and your friend extols the virtues of being nude, you may still have reservations. It's normal. Once you're there, you'll quickly overcome your concerns.

AANR clubs maintain ethical standards of behavior in a wholesome, family friendly atmosphere. Everyone accepts each other as they are. It doesn't matter if you have a surgical scar, had a mastectomy, have large breasts or small breasts, wide hips and a flat belly or a little belly and narrow hips. No one expects you to have a perfect body. Nudists are secure in who they are and they create environments that make you feel safe and comfortable. From the moment you remove your clothes, you will feel safe and comfortable, and free…free from your restrictive 'second skin', free to truly relax, and free to just be you.

For whatever reason you decided to try nude recreation, you will soon realize that it is something you are doing for yourself. Indulge yourself in a luxury only nature can provide.

News
At the last NCN get together we talked about some small changes to our club, nothing drastic but in line to help this club grow and more opportunities for events. 1. Everyone should try and recruit a new person or two a year.. more if you can. And 2, Host one event a year, team up with another member if your home is too small. The more hosts we have the more often we can get together and enjoy each others company. Summer is right around the corner. NCN members who have relative/friend(s) who are not members but would like to attend an event are welcomed to do so as long as the individuals are in the company of current NCN members, event host is made aware of the non-member(s) attendance (ahead of time) and that the NCN member will be held accountable for their non-member relative/friend(s) behavior/action(s). In order for NCN to exceed, current members need to get involved. We encourage any NCN members who would like to participate on the Board to please let Roy We are wanting to make NCN a safe and fun club for everyone to enjoy, regardless of who you are. Word of mouth is how small clubs like this can thrive. If you have an idea for future events, or would like to host an event, please contact Roy via email.
