SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 01: (EDITORS NOTE: Image contains nudity.)Nude members of the public applaud as they notice television reporter Grant Denyer stripping off to take part in "Mardi Gras: The Base", an art installation by artist Spencer Tunick, at the Sydney Opera House on March 1, 2010 in Sydney, Australia.

You will realise you don’t look that different from everyone else, your bum isn’t that big and you’re not fat and there will be very few of those so called ‘perfect’ bodies.

    One of the big attractions of being nudists for us is that people accept each other as we are, just people, naked, no labels attached through clothing.

We love the nudist way of life, to us it feels more open, upfront and honest.
