    Meet and Greet

    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  You can also register online  by clicking here.  So far, we only have 6 people signed up.

    Our web site

    We have been working on our web site. A few Russian(?) hackers found our online registration form and used an automatic system to send automatic event registrations to us as spam messages. Overall, we had around 10,000 registered for the summer weekend. We are guessing that they were from Russia because the return emails were all from Russia.

    After many days of beefing up security on the registration forms, they have now stopped.

    There was never a breach of the website itself, just an annoying amount of emails. No personal data was ever in danger.

    The online form can now be accessed to register for the Nude Potluck on 10/9/21. If you are planning on attending, please contact us either through the online form or by email.

    What is Naturism? (from NaturistGo Blog)

    Naturism is about being naked in an environment where you find it natural, but without putting anything
    sexual in it. One can call it asexual nudity. Naturists are naked, but in naturism, it is not the nudity that is in
    focus, but the freedom that can lie in being free to wear clothes without the need for anything sexual in the
    nudity. Naturists are an expanding community that is gaining popularity every day. Not just in the United States, but
    also in beautiful nations like England, Croatia, and Australia, where naturist societies are well-established
    and attracting more and more people. Are you tempted by the experience?

    Here are some reasons how practicing Naturism helps with body positivity:

    We learn to take responsibility.

    When you practice social naturism, you become more sensitive to your
    body, to what it expresses. We, therefore, tend to take care of it more, while accepting its beauty and flaws.
    Naturists assume what they are, their physical peculiarities, and sometimes even the visible traces of their
    history through scars.

    There is a form of self-acceptance, of tolerance towards oneself, by presenting oneself as such in front of
    others. Showing your body and being able to accept yourself as you are can have a psychotherapeutic effect.

    We gain self-confidence.

    The benevolent gaze of others that there is in naturism, respect for oneself and others is essential, free from
    certain complexes that one may have, and help to gain self-confidence. The respectful attitude of each one, the very modest looks (contrary to what one might think!) Reinforce the self-esteem which one has of their body. Because being able to lay bare, literally, in front of others is to challenge oneself, to overcome the fears and doubts that we all have within us. This exercise is even less easy for adolescents whose bodies are changing. But naturism helps them put their complexes at a distance and gain self-confidence. Another advantage of going nude is that it allows you to become more self-aware and confident in your flesh. Choosing to be naked on a daily or irregular basis enhances one’s self-esteem. It dismantles the barriers of stereotypes and the pressures we face every day to be “perfect.” You have no one to impress when you’re nude, not even yourself.

    We fill up on vitamin D.

    Our exposure to light is usually not enough light and vitamin D deficiency is common. As a result, our
    production of serotonin (which is the brain messenger responsible for mood) and dopamine drops, we feel a
    little slack, we lack energy and morale is not always good. In general, vitamin D helps stimulate the immune
    system and reduce fatigue. Because your range of motion is not restricted by clothing, nudism aids in brain
    development and increases neuron production. And even when the weather is very nice, to have a good supply of vitamin D, it would be necessary to expose a sufficiently large surface area of ?? The body to absorb it… The solution? Live naked! With care and moderation of course: protect yourself with a high protection factor (especially on parts of the body where the skin is thin and sensitive), avoid exposure to the hours when the sun is the worst (between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. ), and prefer shadow corners.

    We pay even more attention to hygiene.

    As naturists appear naked, personal hygiene is all the more important.
    Also, by living naked, we avoid friction (with underwear for example), and we avoid nests of bacteria such
    as wet swimsuits. Finally, certain rules of use must be observed in a natural place, such as putting your towel
    on the chair before sitting down.

    We adopt a lifestyle that goes beyond nudity.

    Nudity offers the art of living that promotes harmony with nature. From there, we often see a desire to eat
    properly, to do good to our body, which is constantly exposed to others.
    Being a naturist also means adopting a healthy lifestyle and respect for your body.

    We sweat… freely!

    When we are not wearing any clothing, the body necessarily breathes more. The sweating drains better and
    is not absorbed by tissues that are even door skin throughout the day. Thus, the thermoregulation of the body
    is probably better. Clothes obstruct the functions of our biggest organ, the skin. The skin acts as a barrier against microbial invasion. Evaporation allows us to stay cool through sweating. That process is slowed by clothing. It allows
    by-products of the skin’s processes to accumulate in contact with the skin, causing discomfort. Nudity rhymes with simplicity: going without clothes, swimsuits, swimming naked, walking naked, gives a deep feeling of freedom, of letting go. The lack of constraint to dress in the morning when you wake up, the fact of not wearing too tight clothing, necessarily makes you more relaxed. Living in the simplest device, assuming one’s nudity, overcoming one’s fears and complexes allows stress to be reduced! Nudity is pleasurable, healthful, and beneficial to the soul.
    It encourages body acceptance and awareness, as well as age acceptance, freedom, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Nudity, by its very nature, frees the body from the constraints of clothing, which move and
    compress our bodies, and exposes it to the air and sun, both of which have various health benefits. People
    who are raised in a nudist atmosphere develop good body attitudes and can recognize changes in their
    bodies. Rather than preaching guilt about bodily parts and functions, the naturism movement promotes body
