32. Social Contacts

Modeling brings a person, naked, into public contact with other people, all of whom are clothed. The discrepancy between clothedness and nakedness sets up an artificial separation which tends to be continually jarring. Some models counteract the jarring effect of this discrepancy by developing social contacts at nudist resorts or at clothes-optional recreation sites (usually pools and beaches) where nakedness is shared instead of isolated, social nudity is far more different from nudity for modeling than people often recognize. It is a useful adjunct, rather than a substitute for, professional preparation. For more information contact The Naturist Society (P.O.
