  • Inexperienced so not sure!

    Hi to all, first of all i apologize if you are offended by my inexperience on this matter but i feel i need to talk to someone about this, i have become interested in the naturist way of life recently and while researching for things in my area i came across a website called nudismlife. On the website there are nude pictures of children, some posing with adults and some without, i understand why nudists take pictures of their children playing and in family photos for showing friends and for keepsakes, but this site just seemed to be a collection of random photos uploaded by someone. sorry for the long post just seemed necessary to talk about this and if i should do anything?

    It's hard to tell without seeing the site. Naturist families enjoying taking the same kinds of photos of their kids that non-naturists do, but of course in naturist families the kids are enjoying life without clothes. Full-frontal views of nude children used to be fairly common, but now most of us are concerned about protecting children from internet misuse. I'm not acquainted with any actual naturists who are still willing to post full-frontal shots of their children. And, of course, there are laws to consider.

    Do the pictures commonly show the genital areas of children? If yes, I'd be very cautious about the site. It wouldn't be a place I'd spend much time, and I would NEVER download a pic.

    If there are pictures that are sexually provocative, I'd report it to the police.

      the photos were fully nude, some of the kids on their own, some with families, but none that i saw were sexually suggestive, just mostly of what you would call a typical surrounding. Im thinking of reporting it too one of these child protection sites but wouldnt want to taint a perfectly normal nudist site, as the majority of photos are the norm.

        I would say that if the pics looks like normal, everyday pictures that anyone might have in their home photo albums, but with the kids being nude, it may be a legit site, but they are probably going to have problems. As stated, most nudists probably wouldn't put up any pictures showing their kid's genitals. It's unfortunate, because kids are the most natural nudists around, but they are also the ones that debate rages over the most.

        I probably would steer clear of the site if you have any concerns. But as mentioned, if there is anything sexual involving the kids, it's probably wise to report it.

          I have seen the site before and I would say that the photos are not sexually sugestive when it comes to kids, there are alot of scans from nudist publications on it, but it is one of those sites that I would call borderline nudist/naturist. Some of the photos are of flashing and that is the main reason for it to be questionable.

            There are a lot of so-called "nudist" sites which are really in the soft porn business. They collect a lot of legitimate naturist photography - but tend to concentrate on females and youth - and sell memberships to view the photos, and often they are sister sites of genuine porn websites which you can also buy passes to. They usually do nothing for the nudist community and have no actual nudist content other than a few reposted articles that can be found plenty of other places.

              Thanks to all the replies, good to hear from people who know more about this kinda area than me, i would call it a borderline site, and dont particularly see the need for it, but will reporting it actually do anything as im sure there are plenty more out there, and if it is legal it probably wont come to anything. Has anybody heard anything else like this?

                There are gobs of still and movie pictures of kids on these sites: http://www.nudistvideoclub.com/galle...oto/index.html and http://www.naturistfreedomtv.com/web/ They're pictures and videos of kids and adults just having fun as naturists. Nothing wrong with any of them.

                  Well, it could do quite a bit of harm to innocent people, if that's what you're after.
                  From the notion that photos of naked children somehow harms them, it's a short step to the assumption that simple nudity harms them, and they should be "protected" from naturism. Or protected from parents who are naturists.

                  It's not theoretical, I heard last night from a woman whose daughter had been in the custody of "child protection" people since last week, since Mommy and Daddy sometimes go around the house without any clothes on.

                  Do naked photos harm children? A popular children's TV program here, now in reruns, has two occasional characters who are Indians, played by kids who seem to be about 8. Brazilian Indians don't wear clothes and neither do they. One went on to a career as a singer, in a sort of pseudo-Menudo. His website showed the dire consequences of his youthful pantless acting: he listed his nickname as "Famous Ding-a-ling".

                  Is it possible that people will look at these photos with bad intent? Certainly. Is this yucky? Yes. Will it harm the children?

                  I need to see a former Playboy model next month, and will ask her what the consequences of people looked at naked pictures of her are. When more people look, are the consequences more severe? Is it more severe at night?

                  The questions are absurd, but then again so is the idea that a photo captures part of the soul, and the subject is somehow injured when the photo is misused.

                  In short - ignore the site. There are plenty of people out there who will report it, just as there were always plenty of people to point out old women who might be witches, or screenwriters who were Communists, or neighbors who were Jews.

                    I understand all points of view and arguments of this matter, i just had an inclination that people were uploading photos of random children and collecting them together, it didn't seem to have a structured community. But im possibly wrong about it and just wanted to see what other people thought.

                      From a web check.

                      Child safety of this site is unsatisfactory. Trustworthiness, vendor reliability and privacy is excellent. (more on reputation).It is not listed in any blacklists.

                        tem, it is more than likely that the child protection sites. The photos I saw on the site are fine and would not cause any problem for authorities.

                        I wouldn't worry about it. There are much worse sites out there.

                          I also visited that site and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. All the photos looked fine. You can tell a tasteful site by the photos, and this site looks like it's pretty well moderated. Simple single, group, family nudity is the main focus. I wouldn't worry about the adolescent photos as they were in good taste.

                            Nudismlife is run by VivreNu in France which is one of the country's bona fide naturist portals.

                              There are obvious reasons why many, well-established nudist and naturist communities do not even allow cameras past their gates. The management makes those rules in observence of not only the comfort and respect for its members, but to protect children there from potential harm, as well as many harsh and devistating consequences the parents of those children may face in the event any of their photographic recordations of their children get loose and into the wrong hands. Digital technology is here and no longer is it necessary for a photographer to involve any third-party client such as a photo lab, to preview the results of their picture-taking. Nowadays anyone with even a concealed camera can secretly take a picture of you or your child and instantly upload it to a server where it won't take long at all before that image is being used for all sorts of wrongful profit and general evil.

                              Tem, you're quite wise to be wary of the website that you found, and perhaps at this point the best and safest thing to do would be to never visit that site again and to be even safer, replace your computer's existing hard drive. Once you are 100% up and running with the new hard drive and have backed up your important stuff, drill a hole in the old hard drive and chuck it into the ocean. Get it out of your hannds fast! Better you wash your hands of the situation asap than you becoming a statistic and have your future ruined by a felony sex charge of possessing chl1b prun. It's too chancey and porn laws vary from state to state, county to county.

                              By the description of what you saw in the photos it seems that you have stumbled upon soft-core cn1ld pr0n and it's a red flag that they're offering those pictures to total strangers, whether they be nudists or not, for a fee. That's not at all a reputable website and obviously the folks running that site in the name of family nudism have no freakin' idea as to what naturism and nudity represent, instead those sites are there to tittelate and cause enough arousal in the viewers that they get out their credit cards!

                              Very sick indeed and a horrible misrepresentation of nudism and naturism, and that's putting it mild.
