What we're about


Scheduled events will resume after the coronavirus pandemic is under control, hopefully soon. Everything is free at this friendly non-sexual naturist social club, which is the largest nudist group in southwest Florida. (All expenses are paid by the club's leaders, Peter Kacalanos and Suzanne Cherney.) It's not a commercial nudist resort or nudist camp; it's organized by its members. The group currently includes over 2,300 nudist couples and singles, who get free memberships, parties, refreshments, excursions, etc. The group is private, so only registered members can see the names, profiles and photos of other members. We all enjoy relaxing at the area's nude beaches and nudist resorts, as shown in these pictures taken at the club's recent socials. :-)


Newcomers are always welcome at our events, even if they've never before been in mixed nude company. All our get-togethers are clothing-optional. You can attend wearing as much or as little as you like, with no pressure to undress. You'll soon feel comfortable in this safe environment, where children can attend with their parents, and will readily be welcomed by our members. No true naturists ever judge others by their dimensions or age or appearance, so you needn't feel embarrassed about how you look. None of us would ever qualify for a modeling job. The group's motto has always been "If God had wanted us to be naked, we would have been born that way."


Most of our events take place at the innocent nude pool parties held in the homes and secluded gardens of club members, usually scheduled on Saturdays or Sundays. The club's website shows when and where the next free party is to be held. Members are also sent an email each time a new party is scheduled. Members can then submit their RSVPs on line to let the hosts know whether the members will or won't be coming. That's how we meet many local naturists who share our love for safe, non-sexual, nude social recreation. We feel you can never have too many naked friends.


All members are encouraged to host a party in their own homes and gardens, setting a limit for the number of members who can register to attend. The most popular location for the nude parties so far has been Peter and Suzanne's place in Naples. Everyone enjoys socializing in the leaders' spacious (36' x 60') screened enclosure, perfectly safe from mosquitoes. The enclosure includes a kidney-shaped swimming pool, with depths raging from three to six feet. The pool is heated at all times to a comfortable 88 degrees by both a heat pump and solar panels. It's ideal for skinny-dipping in glorious sunshine, or just floating lazily to relax after working hard all week.


The enclosure is in a half-acre garden, which includes a grove of fruit trees, a raised pineapple plantation, a desert mound of cactus and succulents, three small jungles of banana trees, many flowering shrubs, dozens of bromeliads, and orchids blooming in the shade of a large oak tree and hanging from the enclosure's screen ceiling. Most of the garden is secluded from the neighbors, so it's ideal for nude sunbathing. Peter often gives a nude guided tour of the tropical plantings.


You'll enjoy socializing with our friendly local nudists, sharing light foods and soft drinks brought by generous members, and carpooling to other venues for more naturist activities. If this group sounds like something you might be interested in (whether you're a seasoned nudist or just interested in exploring the experience), you can instantly join Naturists of Southwest Florida for free on its web site with no obligation. (It won't take long, did it?) You have nothing to lose but your inhibitions.
