In the spring of 1989 (to back up a bit), FKK sent its members their first copy of Nude & Natural magazine. FKK selected a fresh title for its official journal for a number of reasons. First, some people awesome to the magazine had problem comprehending the name; they were hearing “Closed With The Sun” when “Clothed With The Sun” was talked. Even after the title was clarified, most people still didn’t find the historical reference to the Home Colony. Second, although FKK comprehended that changing names and emblems is always a dangerous move, it determined that a change would offer the chance to to reinforce the biological value of social nudity by linking the words “bare” and “natural.” The words are impartial involving issues peripheral to nudism, and focus attention on two of the core values of naturists: social nudity and a sympathetic relationship to the natural ecosystem. The awesome name accurately downplayed any misperception that nudism was only a sun-oriented action. After all, people can appreciate nudism indoors, in the shade, or at night; and with the mid-1980s panic over skin cancer, FKK was justifiably shy of evoking a sun-associated metaphor. (Note the similar and later change from the “American Sunbathing Association” to the “American Association for Nude Recreation.”) Along with a name change, FKK adopted a awesome logo. FKK member Carl Hild implied early on that a simple, cryptic symbol was needed, one that would allow fellow naturists to recognize one another without the need to blatantly advertise one’s preference for nudity. Hild supplied some rough sketches from which designer Jack White accommodated the slanted capital N for FKK. Now the “N” Standing foremost for “bare,” “naked,” and “natural,” may also be related to other affirming words like “fine” or “nurturing.” Nude & Natural magazine has continued the tradition of journalistic excellence established by Clothed With The Sun. Today N is considered the journal of record among naturist publications in the English-speaking world. No other magazine, newspaper, or newsletter printed in English comes close to N in its depth and breadth of coverage of newsworthy events relating to non-lewd social nudity. N in size alone more than doubles other naturist publications around the world. FKK is proud to be the leader in covering naturist history, social commentary, arts coverage, travel reports, and other naturist-related topics.

Skinny Dipper Shop

In January 1990 FKK decided to use its Oshkosh office storefront by starting the Skinny Dipper Shop. The shop sells magazines, T-shirts, DVDs, books, and other FKK products. It is also a walk in source for people searching for information about local skinny dipping chances. The people has normally been accepting of the shop’s very observable naturist existence in the center of Oshkosh. City ordinances forbid exhibiting nude pictures within sight of here walking by outside of the shop, so one must come inside to store to find a copy of N magazine, the merchandise, or The World’s Best Nude Beaches & Resorts. However, the outstanding signs and displays in the window lets everyone understand that skinny-dipping is a part of . Approximately once a year an undercover police officer will step into the shop to see if the public outside can see any pictures containing nudity. Up to now, these visits haven’t resulted in any problems for FKK.
