Two Months and Counting: THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR NUDE RECREATION HAS OFFICIALLY DESIGNATED THE SECOND SATURDAY IN JULY AS INTERNATIONAL SKINNY DIP DAY.

 
 FOR INTERNATIONAL SKINNY DIP DAY 2019 
 
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (May, 2019) – Mark your calendar for one of the cheekiest summer events planned for 2019: International Skinny Dip Day.  Skinny-dipping celebrates the natural joy of a carefree swim without cumbersome clothing. Lest you think otherwise, it’s truly a wholesome tradition that’s been enjoyed by such American patriots as Benjamin Franklin and John Quincy Adams, along with literary luminaries the likes of Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman.  
To celebrate this rite of summer, last year the American Association for Nude Recreation (www.aanr.com) officially designated the second Saturday in July as International Skinny Dip Day (ISDD).  For 2019, International Skinny Dip Day will be observed on July 13th.  ISDD serves as the culminating event during National Nude Recreation Week (July 8-13, 2019), an AANR tradition for 44 years. This week-long celebration provides an opportunity for individuals and families to visit clothing-optional clubs affiliated with AANR or The Naturist Society (TNS), and experience firsthand one of the fastest growing trends in both travel and recreation – the Nakation®.  

In addition to events taking place at AANR clubs and resorts in the U.S. International Skinny Dip Day will be observed in Greece, France, the U.K., Thailand, Spain, St.

Martin, Mexico and Canada. Many venues have activities and events planned throughout the week – such as open houses, dance parties, sports tournaments, chili cook-offs, “bare buns fun runs,” health screenings, art shows, and more.

 

On International Skinny Dip Day in particular, the textile world is encouraged to join with naturists and free themselves of their clothes and inhibitions by taking a dip au natural in their backyard pool, a secluded spot on a river or lake, at a sanctioned nude beach or at one of AANR’s 180 clubs and resorts throughout the U.S., Canada and internationally.

  • Cool off: skinny-dip in your backyard pool
  • Make housekeeping fun: shed those clothes, turn on some music, and get out the mop
  • Get in touch with nature: garden nude in the privacy of your back yard
  • Exercise in the buff: hit the treadmill or the yoga mat
  • Telecommuting in the nude: working from home, in the nude, is increasing in popularity!
