A good article about nudist resorts and the AANR national nudist convention
Every year AANR, known as The American Association for Nude recreation has a national convention in a different part of the US. This year it is held at the Willamettans in Oregon. It is a very nice nudist campground and park. We have had guests who are members there stay with us. It is very scenic and beautiful
The local Eugene, Oregon newspaper did a nice article about nude recreation and nudists. Here are some of the highlights of the article:
"...And through next Sunday, up to 1,000 members of the American Association for Nude Recreation - average age range: 40 to 60 years old - will converge upon the Willamettans clothing-optional resort for the organization's 76th annual conference, then check in and strip down.
'...Our demographics do show us that most members are (older)," said Pat Brown, a former board member of the Willamettans. "But that is not a recent occurrence. As far back as the 1970s ... that has been the case.'
It's not that the MTV generation isn't into getting naked.
Rather, twenty-somethings, busy with family and work, just don't have the time to slow down and take it all off, she said.
"...For 10 to 15 years I was working hard on my career, trying to keep the lawn mowed and going to basketball games," he said. "We seem to hover in mid-age; our membership is self-renewing."
...College students, notorious for all things unclad - mooning, streaking, hosting "naked parties" - can't afford the price of being official members of a nudist resort, and also tend to not join any organization, association spokesman Steve Vickers said.
...At 26, Vickers, of Kissimmee, Fla., is a third-generation nudist. Vickers works to organize college nude events and manages the association's MySpace page.
Nudism shares the same appeal for young and old, he said.
"People are trying to look for someplace where they can be themselves," said Vickers, who remained in a T-shirt and shorts Saturday as he adjusted to Oregon's cooler climate."

I though there were many positives in this article. One is AANR has a 26 year old spokesperson. That helps to show people that nudists are just not aging hippies.
It was also nice for Pat Brown to point out that historically nudists are from age 40-60. I know when we went to our first nudist resort when we were 23 we were about the youngest adults there. Nude hotels like ours have guests from their 20's to 70's just like regular hotels have guests of all ages.
