Nudist or Naturist?

“Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment” (International Naturist Federation, 1974)

“A naturist is a person who aspires to the naturist philosophy as defined by the INF. A nudist is a person who just likes to be naked” (Glenne Findon, New Zealand Naturist Federation)

The “N” in MBNC happens to be for “Naturism”. It could equally be for “Nudist”. Or just “Naked”
