Naturists Campaigning for Naturism

Naturist Interaction Survey

A final year student at Bournemouth University is writing his (her) dissertation for their undergraduate honours degree course in Events and Leisure Marketing.

The dissertation is looking at participation and interaction at naturist events. It will take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete and is fully compliant with the university’s procedures for research involving human subjects.

Like all such surveys, participation in the Naturist Interaction survey is voluntary and by doing so, you are confirming you are at least 18. Other than passing on the link, NAG has no involvement with this piece of academic work.


10 Responses to Naturist Interaction Survey

  • I would encourage all NAG supporters to complete this survey.
    NAG has been trying to encourage academic interest and research into the benefits & lack of harm of naturism for some time, and all research and public discussion is useful.
    One of the reasons naturism has made only slow progress in being a fully accepted lifestyle is that it simply is not talked about enough by the general public, so any mention of it brings unfamiliarity which affects perception. Discussion should be evidence based, and this survey will produce some useful evidence, properly derived by a respected academic institution.

  • I came across this survey elsewhere. Sadly, surveys into naturism can be viewed skeptically, there may have been others with ill-intent. The student provides an email address if you wish to contact them. I completed this survey as I took it as another opportunity to discuss our lifestyle and hopefully ‘spread the word’ in a positive manner. It is up to respondents if they prefer to fill it out completely anonymously, or you can provide contact details for them to follow up your answers, should you be open to that.

    • Thanks NudeNik. You’re right about how surveys can be perceived but we are hoping that as the information is being gathered for an undergrads final dissertation it would be seen as unbiased. In the meantime we have contacted the student.

  • I just filled out the questionnaire also, although my responses reflect my experience in the US rather than in the UK, but I don’t think that matters. The questions are pretty innocuous, I encourage everyone to participate.

  • Reg – I too hope it will be seen in an unbiased manner and help to promote naturism positively. I supplied contact details for the student to follow up my contribution should they wish. Again I see that as a possible way to promote naturism. I consider NAG’s promotion of naturism as very worthy, if I can make a small one alongside that I’m more than happy to. After many years of enjoying social nudity I’d like to help more people become interested and actually experience it too.

  • I also completed this survey which I came across on FB and shared on Twitter. It seemed to me to be a genuine attempt to find out more about naturism and the people that enjoy it.

  • I just completed this survey after seeing it advertised here. Anything to help spread the word that naturism is entirely positive.

  • Sadly the survey is based on a fundamental misconception that naturism is a social pursuit that naturists enjoy at “naturist events” and “naturist activities” in the company of other naturists. It entirely fails to allow for the alternative belief that naturism is simply a form of dress (or lack of dress) chosen at times by individuals when going about their daily lives. Consequently many naturists will be unable to complete the survey, and it will be far less informative than it might have been.

    • Having just completed the survey Chris, I can see where you’re coming from. However, I think anything that helps us to define naturism more accurately should be welcomed. As former US Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfield once said: “…we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns….” I won’t put the full quote here, but you know the one I’m referring too. It might be this survey and dissertation will help us to sort out some of the chaff from the wheat; we just don’t know until its written. So, lets not dismiss it before then.

  • I took ‘events’ and ‘activities’ to have a looser, broader meaning when responding. A ‘naturist event or activity’ to us can mean visiting like-minded friends in their home, a nude hike by ourselves, or with friends, a WNBR event or Nudefest. It can also mean a day at home without clothing, doing day to day activities naked.

    In one of the comment boxes in the survey I did touch on the fact that we’re often naked through choice while going about day to day tasks at home. That naturism is a way of life for us, wherever and whenever we can be nude and choose to be free.

    I get that the survey won’t tackle naturism from every angle, but I don’t see it as being as loaded as many commercial surveys can be so as to steer the outcome in a desired direction.
