This is a question I’ve considered for quite sometime. Firstly, I think the internet has gone along way to educating the general public about naturism. I think a lot people expect that naturism on the internet is about sex and pornography, but soon after their initial searches I hope that they soon discover something different. I guess an example is the number of times that messages on this site are viewed compared to those that are replied to. I’m guessing this site gets a lot of lurkers and few contributors. Secondly, I’ve been running an MSN group for young people interested in naturism in Sydney, Australia. I’ve made two interesting observations from this group… There are very few people in their late teens and early 20’s applying to join, the average age is about 30 in spite of a 35 year old age limit. And, we have strict membership requirements, so applicants have to offer their age, location and interest in Sydney naturism before their membership is approved. Subsequently, I deny something like 4 in every 5 applications. So, I ask the question… Are young people _really_ interested in naturism? Does a market exist? If not, why bother targeting this and why not focus on the older population? Sponta.
