My Weekend with the Naturists Association of Thailand

I am sitting in a mineral bath with 10 naked people. As I’m sitting there, I’m imagining myself where I am now, in my office, fully clothed, in front of my computer, typing this sentence to kick off the story of my 24 hours as a naturist: “I am sitting in a mineral bath with 10 naked people.”

Let’s back up and define our terms. What is a naturist? Well, it’s essentially an inter- changeable word for nudist, meaning one who prefers to live life without clothes, often with an added affinity for other natural things such as organic food and the great outdoors. For our purposes, I will use the terms interchangeably because I’m a writer and I like having more than one word for a thing.

Here’s something I bet you didn’t know: the Naturist Association of Thailand (NAT) is the largest online naturist meetup in the world, at over 1,440 members and counting. Led by organiser Bruce Kendall, a retired 60-something American nudist living in Pattaya, the group is steadily increasing its membership and vying to make Thailand a premier destination for clotheslessness.
