A clothing-optional nude pool party in a new member couple's home in Punta Gorda
Most of our naturist group's 1,300 members live around Naples, making members who live in the northern part of our area take a long drive to attend our parties when they're held in Naples. That's why this party will be held in Punta Gorda, in Charlotte County, which our northern members can reach more easily. As at all our events, this party is non-sexual and clothing-optional, meaning those who attend can wear as many clothes as they want, or none at all, with never any pressure to undress. Everyone is welcome to enjoy these events, whether they're experienced nudists or just trying the adventure of socializing with mixed nude company for the first time. If you're driving a long distant to the event and decide to stay overnight at a hotel after the party, a Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn, and Country Inn are all close by. Izzy and Goldie, who offered to host this party at their home, are new members who joined the group just recently. They specify that their garden can be seen by neighbors, so no one can be nude in the garden. (Only the flock of ibises shown in one of the photos below can enjoy the garden without clothes.) But we can all be nude (or clothed) within the attractively furnished house, and on the sunny patio, and in the spacious pool. As can be seen in the other photos above and below, the lower part of pool's screened enclosure is protected with an opaque covering, so that we can enjoy nude social recreation without offending any prudes who might think that the nude human body created by God is obscene. Because all our events are free of charge, generous members who attend contribute some foods and drinks to be shared by everyone throughout the party. The friendly conversations created during the snack-and-chat periods can give visiting non-nudists the opportunity to socialize casually with nude men and women, showing the newcomers that mere nudism shouldn't be confused with sexuality. Members can bring their young children along, knowing that they'll be in a perfectly safe environment. All nudists remember to bring along a towel to sit on when they're naked. To show the hosts (and your naturist group friends) whether you will or won't attend this party, click one of the blue RSVP panels near the upper right corner of the screen. The check mark will show you'll attend; the X mark will show you won't. If you're bringing along a guest, add a +1 when you RSVP so that Izzy and Goldie will know how many people to expect. Ironically, the Meetup program considers each membership to be for one individual person, even if the membership title is something like "John and Mary Smith." So if your partner is coming with you, you still have to add a +1 to your RSVP. Single men are strongly encouraged to bring along a female friend (nudist or not) to approximate the male/female ratio of the population. Anyone registering to attend after the attendance limit is reached will automatically be placed on the Waiting List to take the place of anyone who drops out. (Young children don't count in the limit.) Be sure to write your name (and have your guests write their names) on the sign-in sheet when you arrive. If you register to attend and then realize you can't, you MUST immediately revise your RSVP (from check mark to X mark) in sufficient time before the party to let others on the Waiting List take your place. Otherwise you'll keep those waiting members from attending the party, which would be very unfair to them. Members registered to attend who don't show up when expected will be marked as "no-shows" in our records and on their profiles on the group's website. If that discourtesy is ever repeated, their membership in the group will be cancelled. We look forward to meeting at the home of new members Izzy and Goldie some of the other new members who recently joined the group. See you then?

What we're about

Everything is free at this friendly naturist social club, which is the largest nudist group in southwest Florida. (All expenses are paid by the group's leaders, Peter Kacalanos and Suzanne Cherney.) The club currently has over 1,200 members, both individuals and couples, who get free memberships, parties, refreshments, excursions, etc. We all enjoy relaxing at the area's nude beaches and nudist resorts, as shown in these photos 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.

Most of our events take place at the innocent nude pool parties held in the homes and gardens of club members, usually scheduled on Saturdays or Sundays. The club's web site 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 skinnydipping 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, a small jungle 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 the group members 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. For more information or to discuss nude social recreation, you can contact the club's leaders at or (239) 331-2858.
