Exposing Nudism & Naturism's Dirty Little Secrets:

Pedophilia, Swinging, Pornography and Sexual Exploitation

Early in my involvement in the upper echelons of the naturist movement it became apparent I was running into a large number of pedophiles, child molesters, child pornographers and their apologists; disturbingly disproportionate for such a small, fringe group. I had never run into such a consortium of men, in various ways, abusing children; and never have since, either. Unfortunately too many of these men I've met or come in contact with at naturist or nudist/naturist gatherings and events all over the U.S. move quite freely because too many, if not most, nudists and naturists, have their heads in the sand about the problem, for one reason or another. There are many who are swingers, who go by aliases or first name only so criminals move freely in the midst. Many have no problems with nude photographs of children, therefor they have a hard time distinguishing when the children become objectified commodities. This is a very dangerous dynamic that I found with the nudist/naturists. Many just want to have a nice day at the beach and frankly they don't give a damn about much else. Overall I found them utterly naive and pathetically apathetic about what to do with the men stalking and photographing children in their midst. These pages document some, but not all, of the cases that alarm me. The Nudist/Naturist Hall of Shame more than documents the reasons why I disaffiliated myself. --Nikki Craft

Stripped of Personal Freedom:
Collette Marie tells her story of being molested by a pedophile at a nudist camp. (more...)

David Glenn defends the trading of nude photos of children. Who would be so bold as to defend the trading of pictures of naked kids on the net for sexual purposes? Well, David Glenn for one. (more...)

Jonathan M. Tampico: Nudist and convicted child molester. Tampico frequented nudist camps preaching "family nudism" and "whole body acceptance" to victimize male children. Nudist groups refuse to put him on their "Caution List". Now Tampico has been arrested again. (more...)

Busting Mr. Short-Eyes. Joseph Wanner, long-time and vocal member of the Naturist Society, was arrested and charged with 230 counts of sexual crimes, most involving children. (more...)

Nudist Pedophile Ring. How many pedophiles does it take to ruin a child's day at a nudist camp? A whole slew of nudist men roamed nudist camps molesting children with impunity while the national nudist organization bragged about how safe nudist camps were for kids. (more...)

With a father's love? Hannah Bennett tells the story of her father forcing nudity on her. (more...)

Thomas Kelley convicted of child pornography. Yet another naturist is caught taking advantage of children. This one was the official photographer at Naturist Society events. (more...)

Take it from a Sex Predator Who Knows

"You put 11 and 18-year-olds together in a camp where they're nude, I think it is a recipe for disaster. It is like putting a match next to a gasoline can. You'll have disasters sooner or later." --CNN, former Republican representative Mark Foley who was sexually abused when he was thirteen by a priest who took him "skinny-dipping", used nude massage and being naked in the same room on overnight trips. In September, 2006 Foley was forced to resign as a result of his sexually explicit and predatory emails to male teen congressional pages. Foley had attempted to pass protective legislation aimed at children's nudist camps sponsorred by the American Association for Nude Recreation.

"You don't have to worry so much about where your kids are and what they're doing. Because you know that they're at home no matter where they are here, 'cause we are one big family. It's comforting, it's relaxing, and we feel that they're safe."  -- American Association for Nude Recreation AANR (was American Sunbathing Association), circa 1988, Public Relations Videotape.

He was a regular at Sauvie Island and a visitor at Fraternity Snoqualmie, a camp where numerous child molesters have resided. Silsbee even "recommend[s] a visit to FS any time" and also has stated on rec.nude (Jan 8 19950 that his children were not molested when he visited the camp.

Naturist & Nudist Cataloging of Naked Children. The front page looks innocent enough but, the further you click into it, the more unsettling it becomes.

A good example of the way video/photo cataloging of nude children works including an excellent compilation of nudist-naturist rationales/justifications for this "entertainment". [See past American Association for Nude Recreation President, Naturist Society Affiliate, and Southern California nudist club owner, Walt Zadanoff.] There have been millions of these photos taken on beaches and camps; there can never be too many.

Check out Nudes-A-Poppin Beauty & Dance contest at Ponderosa Sun Club. When you get to their page and look at all the pictures then click to their link for the nudist camp and see what a wholesome picture they paint with their photo of nudists playing volleyball.

Nudists Discriminate As Much As People With Clothes
Daily University Science News, November, 2001

"The naked truth about the American nudist movement is its failure to live up to the ideal that everyone is treated the same, despite social standing or the shape of their bodies, a new University of Florida study finds.

"Especially revealing is the inconsistency toward women, who are told looks don't matter but are exposed to nudist art portraying so-called perfect and impossible-to-match female figures, said Ellen Woodall, a practicing nudist for more than 15 years who did the research for her master's thesis in anthropology.
