** The British answer is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Gough Stephen Gough]], aka "The Naked Rambler", who spent most of the period 2006-15 in prison due to his refusal to wear clothes (like Webb, he was repeatedly released from jail and almost immediately take his clothes off and get arrested again). In 2014, the European Court of Human Rights [[http://www.bailii.org/eu/cases/ECHR/2014/1156.html decided]] that laws against public nudity did not breach the rights to freedom of expression or privacy.

* PantyShot: Averted. Some people, on their first trip to a nudist camp, think "I'm nervous, so I'll just strip to my underwear, that's halfway - right?" Then they look at the rules and see that walking around in your underwear is prohibited - which doesn't make sense to a first-timer. Firstly it's a ''Nudist'' camp, so you ought to go all the way or not at all; and secondly when you think about it partly-clothed is generally considered kinkier than stark-naked. Think about all the lingerie porn out there. Besides - are the underwear you are wearing right ''now'' in a state that you would want to present on the street?

* Being naked is much more fun (and often times more practical) than being clothed.

** Some exceptions to the latter exist for example, one nudist camp in the southern United States has a yearly beauty contest which has taken on a life of its own in recent years.

* NationalGeographicNudity: Nudism is directly responsible for breaking down the rules about nudity in film. Nudists fought for and earned the right to show nudity in films about nudism. In the 1950s, American filmmakers used this as a loophole to show nudity in their own films cue a hundred thousand "Tales from a Nudist Colony" films, some of which were actually intended as {{pornography}}.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: It isn't exactly illegal to take pictures at a nudist camp, but it is ''strongly'' suggested that you always ask permission first and respect people's wishes. This goes double ''and triple'' when it comes to pictures of children. People going around with a camera taking pictures of everyone without asking first tend to get asked to either stop or leave - and the staff is not at all embarrassed about calling in the local authorities to step in in extreme cases. Despite how "rustic" the camp may be, [[GenreSavvy everyone is aware any picture you take could be on the Internet in seconds flat]].

* ExposedToTheElements: Averted again. Nudists wear clothing when it's appropriate. The idea is that there's nothing wrong with being nude, not that it's wrong to be clothed.
