5 marketing hacks for promoting nudism naturism and clothes free living

Today I came across a post on the R/nudism Reddit which is emerging as a place for some of the best and most intelligent conversations about nudism and naturism online.  Ideas to promote nudism/naturism online? from nudism The question is a very important one for the future of nudism/naturism. As has been shared before it seems to this writer that we have lost our brand and are I jeopardy of not ever being able to reclaim it.

“I Am Not A Slave” – opposing sharia law

“First nude protest against hijab in the Islamic Republic” From a piece published in April 2016: As many Iranians have told me, and as I myself experienced in Iran from 2000-2009, there is always a way to protest Sharia and Islamic law, even if one lives under a theocratic, despotic, Islamist and authoritarian regime such as the Islamic Republic of Iran. Standing against the draconian laws of the Iranian regime and the ruling mullahs, a young Iranian woman has just demonstrated this in an usual way: by a nude protest. The repercussions of such an action are very grave under the Islamic law of the Iran. The Iranian woman in this video is marking the first nude protest in the Islamic Republic. This woman is standing against the barbarian Sharia laws present in the Islamic Republic by writing on her body “I’d Rather Be a Rebel, Not a Slave.” Several women, whom I have interviewed, have created similar videos, but they are waiting to leave Iran to post the videos. If a women gets arrested by …

Had the brother and sister been raised in a naturist environment they’d probably have grown up knowing what each other looked like and there would have been no issue. That sounds like a pretty…
