                There are some terms that someone else referred to as 'media baby talk' when talking about nudism. These are words seldom used in any other context:

                cavort - cavorting
                frolic - frolicing
                prance - prancing

                apparently nudists move in a way entirely different from clothed people, thus requiring special verbs.

                Words I've heard nudists use:

                playing nakey (also sounds a bit like baby talk)
                canuding

                    Every Australian seems to know what "in the nicky" means and this expression is used by most Australians with great affection and absolutely no sense of shock etc.
                    On reflection, maybe this is a West Australian term. Perhaps one of those alien people on the other side of the rabbit proof fence could enlighten me on this.

                      How about "In The Buff"? A widely used term for many years, has now taken on new meanings.
                      My daughter once refered to a boy in school as " Buff" or "Buffed", meaning he had been working out and had built up his muscles. Then the term "Buff" changed to mean a good looking. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]
                      The funniest thing I've heard was on a TV show. "Slap me naked and call me wanda!" ( Never quite understood that one) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                        I could have missed something but everyone seems to have forgotten the most obvious term related to nudity ... clothesfree. This term and the related term topfree are interesting to me because they suggest clothes are a prison and not something that a naked person lacks. The words clothesfree and topless are examples of how words can be used to subtly convey ideological messages.

                          Buzzer: "Au Natural"
                          Not really. It's just a different language, French, for "in the nude." And it's spelled au naturel. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                          hw: "Well slap me naked..."

                              A dear lady friend once told me she cleaned house "in the nuddy" on hot days.

                              Au naturel actually means what it appears to: according to nature. The ordinary French word for naked is nu.
