And Participate in the Inaugural “International Skinny Dip Day”

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (May 8, 2018)  – What do Lady Gaga, George Washington, Hugh Jackman, Heidi Klum and Ben Franklin have in common? They’ve each admitted to enjoying a good old-fashioned skinny dip.  Movie stars, musicians and entertainers today are openly professing their comfort level getting naked while swimming, sunning, and relaxing in their birthday suits — all activities the American Association for Nude Recreation ( refers to as “Nakationing.”

So, this July, the American Association For Nude Recreation encourages free spirits young and old to join in the celebration of Nude Recreation Week (July 9-14, 2018) and the first ever International Skinny Dip Day, observed on July 14th.  Many AANR affiliated clubs, resorts and campgrounds will be hosting “open houses” so that interested parties can experience the stress-relieving freedom of nude recreation with like-minded souls. Don’t want to take the plunge at an AANR facility? Why not take a skinny dip in your backyard pool?  Don’t have a pool?  Then wash the family pet in the nude, scour the shower in the nude, vacuum the house nude, read a book, garden, or enjoy some other activity in one’s own appropriately private setting; or better still, visit a sanctioned nude beach.

Nude Recreation Week gives first-timers a chance to shed stress by giving clothes-free recreation a try without the commitment of membership.  This annual celebration is open for individuals, couples and families to visit one of 200 clothing-optional and clothes-free clubs affiliated with the American Association for Nude Recreation, to experience firsthand this growing trend in both travel and recreation.  Additionally, on July 14thAANR’s “International Skinny-Dip Day” will be taking place at participating locations as an exciting finale to Nude Recreation Week™ celebrations that include bare bun fun runs, BBQs, dances, sports competitions and more.
