Naturists Campaigning for Naturism

Survey into mental health and upbringing (including exposure to nudity)

NAG and BN are working with various academic institutions on projects to rigorously examine the interplay between nudity, mental health, general wellbeing and happiness. As part of this ongoing process Dr Marina Rachitskiy of London Regent University is supervising a study, part of which is a survey of people, looking at some aspects of their upbringing and their adult lives. It would help her team greatly if as many NAG supporters as possible could take part in this survey. It is anonymous, and there are no come-backs involved at all. Please persuade as many of your family and friends (both naturist and textile) to complete it as well. It takes only about 5 minutes and can be found here:

  • I would love to participate in the survey but the web address given is not being recognised

  • Done that. Some of the questions could be a little better designed (as is usually the case with that sort of box-ticking survey), but I hope it achieves something useful.

  • what we need to join this project ?

  • Just complete the survey – follow the link

  • I agree it is a bit simplistic, but we didn’t design it. It may do some good though

  • Hello Mike,
    I have tested the web address and it seems to be working. It should take you to Regent’s University London, if you scroll down you need to give consent then it will take you through to the questionnaire.
    If you continue to have problems please email Dr Marina Rachitskiy on for more assistance.

  • Good survey – I wonder when the results will be published

  • Done the survey, but there is no question that takes into account why I go naked. There are times when I feel uncomfortable in clothes due to being on the Autistic spectrum. Is there any research that correlates naturism and Asperger’s Syndrome?

  • Interesting Steve P. I too am autistic/aspie and feel far more comfortable without clothes. Normal body [temperature] is below standard (i.e. 35.6c). In times of extreme stress, and far too hot, I have torn [clothes] off (e.g. hospitals and gowns). They are itchy, constrictive and very intolerable.

    Last time, provision was made [for me] to avoid [wearing a] gown or any clothes. Pointless with kidney stone 1 1/2 hr op.

    Made life easier when consultation after [the operation] with nurses, consultant and two others were watching me pee blood out many hours (8ish) after. Clothes seemed surplus to requirements.

    Comment edited for clarity reasons, Reg

  • Trust the op for the kidney stones went well, NakedPhil?
