  • Nudism-Obsession or Addiction?

    Obsession: 1. Compulsive preoccupation with a fixed idea or an unwanted feeling or emotion, often accompanied by symptoms of anxiety. 2. A compulsive, often unreasonable idea or emotion.


    Addiction: The condition of being habitually or compulsively occupied with or or involved in something. b. An instance of this: had an addiction for fast cars.


    Which is a closer definition of your involvement in nudism?

    I do know that when I have to put on clothes, my immediate thoughts are about how I can scheme to get out of the clothes again.

      Neither one. I live a life with more than one dimension as do most other nudists.

        I agree Nacktman completly, but addiction fits most better between the two choices. I definately don't like the definition for compulsion.

          I wouldn't say nudism is an obsession or an addiction in my case, but more a necessity, like eating and sleeping. Its part of my life.

            Nudity and naturism is really only a hobby with me. I make plans to attend various clubs/resorts/activities but don't go overboard to attend EVERY one in my area. Simply something I do at my conveinence.

              It is neither. It is my natural state.

              I think the real question should be whether clothes are an obsesssion or an addiction (for textiles, that is).

                Good responses. I meant nothing of a negative nature at all.
                PascoDoug. If you have seen my two daughters at the mall, I think you would vote for clothes as an obsession. That would be my choice. Look at the huge industries that are built up to lend fashion to what is basically a utilitarian object. All they really need to do is keep us warm and dry.

                  I vote for neither one, also.

                    I agree with PascoDoug.Nude is natural.Clothes are the addiction.

                      Neither one.

                      My humorous answer would be that I am obsessed and addicted to driving my Corvette at a high rate of speed while nude, but that wouldn't be true.

                      I am only nude when I want to be and do not feel compelled to be nude at every opportunity.

                        Neither an obsession or addiction, but more of a preference for me. As stated, just a natural state that I would prefer as opposed to being 'forced' to wearing clothes.

                          What's inherently wrong with obsessions and addictions? I'm obsessed and addicted to running, how many have to make a big deal about that?

                            I am obsessed with wanting to go to nudist places like resorts or the beach.

                            I am addicted to social nudism, I could do this alone with the Prof, but we are very social people so we'd have to have our fix of social nudity or we'd go off the deep end!

                            but like others here, neither of these two words or their definitions accurately describe what nudism is for us.
