It isn't about see -ing - it's all about BE -ing...

Southern Sociable Bares are a group of affable, non-swinging, outgoing and friendly human be-ings who are actively involved in the group's events, where we enjoy happy, sociable times. We totally eschew seriousness!! We love good company, good food and drink, good conversation and repartee, and having fun. We utterly espouse silliness, since there is far too much seriousness around! Reeeee-lax!! All socialising is done clothes-free, for its physical, spiritual and emotional freedoms which help ease everyday cares and remove life's stresses and strains.

Respect for the privacy of other Bare Cubs is paramount and the group's Guiding Principles are few and simple:

    We are all active participants in the group's events.

    We never wear clothes when we meet, no matter what the activity (unless meeting in a clothes-essential venue!)

    We devote ourselves entirely to fun and relaxation when we meet, and never take anything else seriously.

    We always treat each other with the highest personal respect and never cause embarrassment or harm to other Bare Cubs.

    We equally share hosting Bares’ events in our homes as well as attending Bares’ events at outside venues.

    We all reside within a 120-mile radius of Fayetteville, TN.37334.

The idea is to enjoy human sociability, relaxation and fun in an honest, frank and open manner.

In response to each application for SSB membership, we send out our standard questionnaire to be completed and returned to us.  Please note that if it is not received back within two weeks of being sent to your e-mail address, the application will automatically be declined.  This avoids a lot of time-wasting communication on all sides.  DUE TO THE NEW MESSAGING SYSTEM IN MEETUP, WHEN YOU APPLY TO JOIN SSB, PLEASE WATCH YOUR PROFILE FOR A "PRIVATE MESSAGE," ASKING FOR YOUR VALID E-MAIL ADDRESS, SO THAT WE CAN SEND YOU OUR "NEW MEMBER QUESTIONNAIRE."  WITHOUT THIS STEP, YOUR MEMBERSHIP REQUEST WILL REMAIN IN LIMBO!!  NOT PRODUCTIVE FOR ANYONE!!  :)

We meet ALL applicants for SSB membership on neutral ground first, so that we have an opportunity to get to know one another face-to-face, and to permit any questions on both sides to be directly answered.  There are NO exceptions to this procedure.  It isn't a "hanging committee"!! - we just want to get to know you.  :)  :)

There is a standard six-months' probationary period for all new members, which can be extended at our discretion.  This ensures that the group's dynamic is maintained as a happy, respectful and positive one.

If you'd like to learn how becoming a naturist can positively impact your life, several of our members (Bare Cubs) have written about their own, first-hand, first time experiences of naturism at this web site.  There you may read that any fears or concerns have already been experienced by someone else, and how real they actually are - or not!!  :)  Do click on the link above and read these personal stories...

You can also watch this short video clip online.  It relates to naturism in Spain, but Southern Sociable Bares can be your doorway to naturism instead!!  :)

Perhaps you are already naturists? Maybe you presently enjoy nudity at home and have wondered what it would be like to be clothes-free in company? Possibly you want to experience social nudism for the very first time? Give the Southern Sociable Bares a try. We won't mind - we're a friendly bunch. You have nothing to lose but your apprehensions, and you have much to gain in enjoyment, relaxation, a deep, inner peace of self-acceptance - and above all - happiness! If this sounds like something you might enjoy, then apply to join. You'll never know until you try it!!...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
