Knoxville-based ETSMN is a non-landed and loosely-organized seasonal internet community of 21+ years of age regional naturism and nudism (N&N) enthusiasts wishing to socialize with like-minded folks, as opportunities might arise, and to aid in promoting our sunshine-oriented lifestyle within the Greater Knoxville Smoky Mountain region.
Although ETSMN does frequently network & collaborate with Johnson City's TCTN, Chattanooga's SETN, and Nashville's MTN regarding mutually beneficial centrally located communal gatherings, we remain steadfastly focused upon event activities & gatherings within an easy drive of KNOXVILLE;
As a "non-landed" group, we must travel to adjacent "landed" N&N venues, associate private residences or secure suitable rental facilities within the immediate region for our skinny dipping and seamless tanning gatherings. Whether you are a novice indoor home nudist or a seasoned outdoor social naturist, ETSMN has something to offer. We strive towards offering folks opportunities to experience N&N life above & beyond that which normally occurs privately within the confines of one's residence.
Some N&N home bound types, tightly constricted to apartment, condo and close-in neighborhood environments, casually refer to us as being the initial gateway avenue towards one's eventually residing within a landed N&N community of their choice. Hence, ETSMN is not a destination, but a momentary conduit between where you are and where you wish to be.
As with any journey, one must first take the initial step towards realizing the freedom and camaraderie that so many of us already enjoy. How participatory you elect to become is entirely up to you, and will ultimately determine your benefit from associating with us.
Merely notify us of your travel plans, when you're going where & we will correspondingly endeavor to surround you with kindred souls, from back home, who need but any excuse to go where you are already headed; because based upon your ETSMN specific personal profile presentation, folks here truly do wish to meet you. That's why we're all here in the first place.
In addition to nude and clothing optional gatherings, we also hold textile Meet & Greets at area restaurants during the late fall, winter and early spring off-seasons so folks might place faces with names and become more comfortably familiar with other ETSMN associates.
Although official international and/or national organizational association is not required, it is encouraged if only to reinforce our collective political & legal voice towards the local promotion of our elective lifestyle. ETSMN supports the following organizations:
