Women In Nude Recreation
WINR stands for Women in Nude Recreation. Here at White Thorn Lodge we want women to feel free to enjoy their visit and experience the freedom that being nude allows.

There are many positive aspects to nudism for women. These include body acceptance and a chance to enjoy the freedom of being nude in a safe, non-judgmental and non-sexual atmosphere. Relaxing nude, in a natural environment and enjoying the friendship social nudism provides are additional benefits. We have pamphlets and articles from the national organizations that we will be happy to send you. Also we have articles from various women and how they discovered personal satisfaction and joy within the nude community.

If you have questions, concerns, or considerations before attempting to try social nudity, we would like to hear from you. Perhaps we can help you understand what a visit to WTL would be like and the way a nudist club works. We could discuss our activities, or answer any other concerns about participation. We are happy to talk about possibilities with anyone who would like to involve a female friend or family member in our activities. Please contact us at and we will be glad to talk to you on the phone or answer your questions by e-mail.

We can describe our club and the wonderful natural setting, friendly people, and many things to do while you are here. We can pair you up with one of us to talk about our personal experiences and try to show you that we are just regular, everyday people (maybe just a little bit friendlier or more outgoing than the average).

Additionally, White Thorn hosts some special events aimed at women and their interests to encourage women to get to know each other better and socialize. These might involve book discussions, scrapbooking, naked needlers, or crafts making. We will be happy to invite you to attend these special activities.

We hope that if you are considering trying nude recreation, you will make White Thorn Lodge your first stop.

Years and years ago I bought a book called, "In Nudist Colonies". I've had a fascination with nudity all my life. Somehow I never looked for organized places to try it. One day my husband and I were on vacation at... Read whole story (PDF)
My Story by Donna
In 1984, my brother visited Black's Beach in San Diego. For Christmas that year he sent me the World Guide to Nude Recreation and said he thought I would enjoy the atmosphere at Black's Beach. At that time, I thought he was a little crazy... Read whole story (PDF)
Dear Females (From Margie)
I was asked to write a short article on why I became a nudist and what it means to me to be a female in the nude recreation world. So here I go! I am not writing this as a speech or a lecture but as one friend to another. The world of female nudism is a grand world girl. Read whole story (PDF)
