    Meet and Greets

    Our next clothed Meet and Greet will be on Saturday 9/11 which will be at the Hillview Restaurant which is located at 6135 Transit Road, Depew, NY.  They have a private meeting room. We will start at 5:45PM. From 5:45 to 6:00pm is a meet and greet portion with dinner starting at 6:00PM. Anybody can come to our dinner meetings. You do not have to be a member of the club and you do not need reservations. Please come, ask questions, and see what the club is all about, socialize and get to know us. The only cost is your meal and drinks.

    Our Meet and Greet Dinners serve two functions. First, since our members come from a wide geographic area, it allows our members to get together and socialize. Second, it allows new people to meet our current members in a public and non-threatening environment. During this meeting, prospective members can socialize with our members, ask questions, and determine if a membership in Niagara Naturists is for them.

    Nude Thanksgiving Dinner

    Our 8th annual Nude Thanksgiving Dinner at the Nudist Lodge will be on 10/9. Although we have had very good luck with this fall event, we decided to make it earlier to better the chances of good weather. This is also close to the Canadian Thanksgiving Date in honor of our Canadian Members. Hopefully, they will be able to join us.

    We are now taking reservations by email for the Dinner. Ginger will supply the Turkey, dressing, and gravy. The balance will be potluck.

    As you know, we need a minimum number of people in order to have this event. The Lodge is located in Wyoming County. Directions will be sent to those who RSVP.

    We will be getting there around 10:00AM to set up. You may join us any time after that. Come early and enjoy the nudist freedom. The Potluck Thanksgiving Dinner will start at 5:00PM

    The cost will be $20.00 for Niagara Naturists/AANR members and $25.00 for non-members.

    Again, since we have to rent the Lodge, we need a minimum number of people.

    Setting up events like this takes a lot of work and can become stressful. It really becomes stressful when there is only short time until the event and not enough people have signed up to pay for it. We know that it is sometimes hard for you to plan 6 weeks into the future, but please make your reservations early so that our stress level doesn't go too high. Please email your reservation to

    Body Acceptance

    Nudist beachSkinny dipping? On a nudist beach? Have you gone completely mad, no way!
    I was a wife who didn't want to get naked, many many years ago. But my husband wanted to go to the beach on his birthday and it seemed mean not happy in seato go with him but I made it quite plain to him that there was no way was I stripping off!
    And there were around 6 scary things that I just couldn't get out of my mind. Maybe they're the same things that are in your mind right now.
    But we got there and I saw how happy and relaxed everyone was and quite soon I realized how much more comfortable I would feel without the wet bikini and I found that the worries I had were disappearing fast.

    Reason 1 I was really worried about my body and what people might think.
    The first time I was worried about my body image but once I got there and looked around I realised there were people of all ages, shapes and sizes. I find that wherever I go, there is always someone fatter than me and someone thinner, and are many people truly happy with the way they look?. I'm more bothered about my age than my size and there's nothing I can do about that! I’ve been to many different naturist places and I’ve never felt uncomfortable about the way I look.

    Reason 2 I was worried about getting unwanted male attention.
    In my experience, most of the single guys on the beach are harmless and friendly. They just want to chat and be sociable like the rest of us. You do get some that come a bit too close or get too familiar but if you make it clear that you're not interested, they go away. Being on the beach is such a lovely way to spend a day, don't let anyone spoil it for you.
    Reason 3
    I was concerned about being seen by someone I know
    I think we all wonder what will happen if we see someone we know when we’re naked. The way I look at it is that if they are in a naturist friendly place then they can’t judge me without judging themselves. It’s not happened to me in the 18 years I’ve been a naturist so I’m glad the thought didn’t put me off and stop me enjoying such a wonderful relaxing pastime.
    Reason 4
    I was concerned that my partner will look at the other women
    As the majority of women are going to try naturism with a partner I think some worry that he will get carried away looking at other women and perhaps think they are better looking, in better shape etc. It’s not like that. Yes we all look, the same as we do in pubs, parks, beaches and clubs when we’re clothed but the fact we’re naked doesn’t seem to make any difference. Quite a few men have told me that its the women in bikinis that attract their attention more because it’s something different to look at.

    Reason 5I thought that Naturism was just another word for Swinging
    A lot of people confuse naturism with swinging. Some naturists might be swingers and some swingers might be naturists but for the vast majority naturism isn’t about sex, its about getting together with other people who also enjoy the freedom of being without clothes. Naturists tend to be very open friendly none judgmental people and some of my best times have been in naturist situations.

    Reason 6
    Was I increasing my risk of getting sun damage?
    Naturists use plenty of sun screen and cover up if the sun gets too hot and they think they might burn just like people wearing swimwear. Or just move into the shade. There is nothing nicer than lying naked with my Kindle and a glass of wine or a cocktail and watching the world go by. Just be sensible.
    If you have just the tiniest thought that you might like to give this a try I do say - just go for it.
    The thing is, you don't really even have to call yourself a naturist, you don't have to pay to be a member of anything and you certainly don't have to join one of those traditional naturist clubs where they insist on nudity on all possible occasions.
    There are plenty of places where clothing is simply an option just like on the beach. Or you can simply make a corner of your garden a little more private and use it as your own naked chill-out space in the sun just as I have done.
    Whatever you choose just be yourself, and enjoy!
