Q. Just so you know, a lot of people in the naturist community were upset by some of those last comments you made during the show. Not one individual interpreted it as you joking around as far as we’ve seen or heard. It actually looked you were quite affected by the only thought that your child should hang out nude socially as an adult.

Moreover, some people in the social activist world were upset by the remark you made about not wanting to see yourself nude, since it contributes to the full body shame & body image issues that afflict many people now.
A. I used ton’t mean to disturb a community. I ‘ve a excellent body image. I was being somewhat tongue and cheek about not wanting to see my own body naked. I see it a lot. And it is all good.
Q. So if you are confident in just how you look, I’m wondering why was it so hard to disrobe?
A. Because I hadn’t ever done it before. And new things are hard.
Q. Looking back, would you take back those comments if you were to do the show again? If so, what would be YOUR rationale?
A. I do not regret having an reliable experience. So no, I mightn’t take anything back.
Q. Do you feel that folks that are on TV like yourself do influence society? If so would you think that you’ve got any moral obligation toward the observers to educate and put out a positive message, particularly with sensitive issues like body image?
A. The show is a comedy documentary series. I am not a journalist. I am a comic and writer and a Mom. My occupation would be to talk to many different Moms from all different walks of life. I am not here to back anybody’s lifestyle.
Q. In closing, if I were a newbie interested about naturism, the last comments in the show probably would’ve smashed my interest – Any ideas on this?
A. Being naked in front of lots of other nude people is not my thing. I was honest about that. It is simply not for me. But for people who are into it – great. I represent myself on the show. I don’t signify the people I talk to. Who, by the way, were completely cool.
Q. And last but not least – How did your husband react when you told him about your experience?
A. My husband and baby were with me the entire time. I was still breast feeding, so they really needed to be by my side for sustenance reasons. My husband took care of my son while I filmed. And he was fine being there. I’m not a journalist. I am a comic and writer and a Mom. My job is to talk to many different Mothers from all different walks of life. I’m not here to back anyone’s lifestyle.

The last post about defining the terms nudism and naturism has got me thinking. Personally, I could not care less about the end result; the procedure and discussion is what I find much more important and fascinating.
It was obvious, from what the individuals said and the comments that came after, just how unorganized and feeble the naturist movement is. But the question is, why? Why is something so fundamental as a simple definition of a nudist so challenging to reply? This can be a new occurrence for me, because in business, politics and so forth, the terms are clear and leave no room for ambiguity.

A company has an obvious leadership structure. An organization has (or should have) a clear assignment. A movement is something which comes about to address particular problems due to the dearth of ordered organizations urging on people’s benefit (but since it’s created to deal with particular issues, it’s clear cut targets). So where does that leave the nudist world?
Jim Smock, Executive Director of Nudist Advocacy Organizations – AANR
It truly is no great secret that FKK has had a difficult time trying to get AANR and TNS to be more responsive and encouraging. This sends us a clear signal they believe they may be doing an excellent job and would choose to maintain the status quo (basically continuing the same manner they have been for decades). We value their opinions but retain the right to differ.
By now, most of you have probably seen this article about AANR that came out today in the Wall Street Journal. I sent the article to a couple of people simply to get their ideas and thus far, I have yet to get one impartial party to say anything positive about it. The gist of the comments was that AANR came off looking like a small child who is desperate for attention along with being an organization that doesn’t know just how to take constructive criticism (not forgetting the fact that AANR gave the opinion that they have given up on bringing the younger generation and today cater to the baby boomers).
