members from a couple of days old to in their 90s. So the real answer is… all ages!
How do children respond to nudity?
Young kids find delight in being bare. Young kids know what adults
discovering nudism find out again–that it is interesting, free and comfortable. Elderly
children quickly adjust and appreciate all the recreational opportunities of the park.
Why participate in nude recreation?
Because it’s fun and it’s healthy. Body recognition is a strong notion and a
key to self acceptance and the approval of others. Whether relaxing, playing
sports or socializing, the nudist experience is a positive one both mentally and
Is not nudity offensive?
We don’t believe so. If you do, we’d like you to reconsider. We consider that
the body in its natural state cannot be bad or shameful, that it is
essentially wholesome.
Isn’t nudity sexual?
Nudism is not any more and quite possibly less sexual than life in general.
Nudism is about being nude when practical, not about sex. It’s about body
Acknowledgement, physicality, spirituality and asthetics. Nudism in general can be
quite sensuous–merely consider the sensations of bathing your body in the air,
Sunshine and water–but isn’t in itself sexual.
Do I need to undress promptly?
Sunny Haven is a
Fkk park… a place where folks come to be
socially bare. For the relaxation of all, we anticipate that all members and visitors
be naked while in the common recreational areas of the park. Nudism is a
participatory activity, not something to watch.
If one man of a couple is reluctant to disrobe on an initial visit, that would

be acceptable. We believe the comfort of Sunny Haven would make participation
Simple in a brief time.
Do I have to be nude constantly?
While Sunny Haven is a nudist park (not clothes optional), there are certainly
times when being clothed is suitable (or advocated or on occasion even
required). In general, however, nudity is the right state of being at all
times when health, weather and safety let while in the common and recreational
Places of the park. Nudity is compulsory at all times in the pool and hottub.
Do you look at each other? I do not believe I ‘d be comfortable in a
conversation, for example.
It is okay to look. It is not okay to gawk or stare. (Pretty much the same as in
the clothed world if you think about it.) And t here in lies the answer to how to
talk and interact with others. It is simply the same as in the clothed world.
To comprehend this realize that nudity is the standard in our world. Just as you
Do not think about others or yourself being clothed in the clothed world… you
will soon give no thought with regard to others or yourself being naked.
Are there other nudist parks or clubs in the region? How do I locate nudist
parks, clubs and shores?
This area of the nation is full of naturist history and we are within a couple of
hours drive to five other nudist or clothes optional parks. There are a total
of eight nudist parks in the state of Indiana alone. Most of them are members of for Nude Recreation. and its Midwest division, the
Midwest Sunbathing Association. You might want to see NudistParksUSA.NET where
you may locate fkk parks and clubs via a fast zip code search.
suppose that I run into someone I know?
Odds are that they will be just as nude as you…. and fairly comfortable with
nude diversion (unless it is their first visit too). They will likely be glad to
see you. Dialog will be easy… you have something to talk about: a common
interest in nude recreation.
What should we bring with us?
Bring exactly the same things you’d take in a visit to a clothed park or plage
except a bathing suit: hats, sunblock, sunglasses, towels, something to read,
something to play with (Frisbee, volleyball), camping supplies if you are
Isn’t all that exposure to the sun dangerous?
Some sun exposure is rather likely good for us. But definitely overexposure isn’t
a good thing. Protection or suntan lotion manages that. If you think about it,
while nude we do not expose a lot more than we do when in a bathing suit anyway.
So the only difference is you will use a bit more suntan lotion.
In ancient history, tanning was considered a
noxious commerce and relegated to the outskirts of town, amongst the poor. The
ancients used leather for water skins, bags, harnesses, boats, armor, quivers,
scabbards, boots, and sandals. Around 2500 BC, the Sumerians started using
leather, affixed by copper studs, on chariot wheels. Tanners would take an
animal skin and soak it in water. Then they’d beat and scour the skin to
remove flesh and fat. Next, either they soaked the skin in urine to loosen hair
fibers or they let the skin putrefy for several months, after which they dipped
the skin in a salt solution. After the hair fibers were loosened, the tanners
would scrape them off with a knife. Once the hair was removed, tanners would
