205. Personal experience supports Naturism.

205. One of the most important arguments in support of nudism is personal experience. Personal testimonies in favor of nudism are too numerous to mention.297 Based on my own experience, I find nudists to be more friendly, open-minded, considerate, respectful, and sharing than non-nudists in general. Their children are more active, and healthier, both physically and mentally. None of these testimonies, of course, compares to personal experience. A single visit to a nudist park or a nude beach will not cause permanent harm to anyone. On the other hand, it may change your life. Experience the freedom for yourself!
