Naturist FAQ

Naturism... But why?

Why not? We live in a world where we are made to conform, media tell us who is pretty and who is not – this is about chucking all that out of the window and enjoying clothes-freedom, and experiencing the most body positive thing you will ever do! Everyone is beautiful! If you have never experienced it, it is Its utterly bonkers doing all these things Naked but only for the first five minutes. Honestly, after a few minutes your new, Naturist world will seem very normal – honest! Plus its good for you… so good, you were even born naked!!

Really, do I have to be naked?

At Sunfolk nudity is permitted 24/7 and encouraged.
Ultimately we want everyone to be happy! Sunfolk gives the perfect opportunity for people to try out social nudity for the first time. We understand that not everyone is confident as one another and everyone’s decision will be respected, particularly where a partner or friend is supporting somebodys decision to try Naturism. In the pool Nudity is to be expected unless a woman is on her period, where a partner is being accompainied or if children and teenagers would prefer to wear a suit. We hope the spirit of Sunfolk and (hopefully) the weather will allow for the perfect setting for inhibitions to be shed. Ultimately, common sense prevails - if it’s cold put clothes on, if it’s hot -take them off!

Nobody wants to see me naked!

Actually, no one is looking at your body; in fact, newbies tend to avoid looking as if their lives depend on it! This is about YOU as a person, which is not defined by what you look like, because that’s the point! Naturism is one of the best ways to become more confident! Equally, you should never be ashamed to let people know how confident you are about yourself! What we do is safe, legal, and healthy; there is no need to “admit” to naturism! British Natirisn instills the true values of body acceptance and shows us that nakedness is nothing to be ashamed of and is in the truest sense natural.

Body conscious?

Being nude with others is not embarrassing. First-timers often remark how quickly they feel comfortable wearing nothing and seeing others unclothed – in fact, it’s easy to forget that everyone is naked…and just because they are, doesn’t make for a sexually-charged atmosphere either.

I’ve never tried Naturism before!

That’s not a problem. We understand that your visit to Sunfolk could be your first Naturist experience. Many people have been apprehensive undressing on their first time, but once they’ve done it wonder what the big problem was in the first place!

What do I sit on?

Naturist etiquette requires a towel, sarong or garment to be sat on at all times - it’s the naturist way...

On your period?

You are not alone and there are several ways to make your Naturist experience more comfortable. Ultimately it is down to personal preference, some ladies preferring to wear bottoms others just using products. Either way it’s about your personal comfort. You won’t be judged.

‘Standing out’ as a male...

The most frequently asked question posed by men! Honestly, it very rarely happens, a naturist environment is not one that is sexually charged. If nature does take its course then take a break, sit down and relax - ultimately be discreet.


Yeah we just said it! If you think you are coming to some weird seedy place then think again – wholesome family fun and a zero-tolerance rule for any funny business.
