Young British Naturists
The Young British Naturists, or YBN to our friends, is official BN/INF youth group in the UK. If you're aged 18-35 and want to enjoy the pleasure of clothes-free living (or just getting your kit-off for a skinny-dip with friends) then this is the group for you.
YBN allows you the opportunity to enjoy freedom from your clothes and the joy it brings while being around other people your own age, in almost any way you like! Our members come from all backgrounds and walks of life; some grew up with Naturist parents and for others, YBN is their first Naturist experience.
YBN is part of BN who in total have some 8500 members across the UK. Not a lot Naked happens in this country that we don’t know about or get involved in! Above all else, we promote a safe, friendly and welcoming environment while having fun, meeting new people and exploring naturist venues and events all over the country and abroad.
You join us by becoming a member of British Naturism and if you're under 35 you’ll then automatically become part of YBN - giving you access to our private online forums.
But wait ... there's more!
What do we do?
During the summer months we organise visits to Naturist clubs all around the UK, usually camping, and get groups together to attend BN’s big events. During the day we laze in the sun, swim, play sports and visit the bar. In the evenings we have discos and bands or have a night out in the local area or town. Some years we organise a holiday abroad somewhere hot & sunny! The INF also run an annual Youth Rally in May which moves around European destinations, to enjoy a few days of fun, entertainment and activities with young Naturists from other countries.
Isn’t it too cold in winter?
Of course it is! During the winter months we attend more indoor events like various naturist swims around the country. We also meet up for pub and nightclub outings, and have a special winter weekend so that we can all get together.
I’ve never tried Naturism before!
That’s not a problem. We understand that a YBN visit is often a first Naturist experience. There is no pressure to undress so it’s a great way to try. Many people have been apprehensive undressing on their first time, but once they’ve done it wonder what the big problem was in the first place!
Being nude with others is not embarrassing. First-timers often remark how quickly they feel comfortable wearing nothing and seeing others unclothed – in fact, it’s easy to forget that everyone is naked…and just because they are doesn’t make for a sexually-charged atmosphere either.
Nobody wants to see me naked!
Actually, no one is looking at your body; in fact, newbies tend to avoid looking as if their lives depend on it! We’re interested in YOU as a person, which is not defined by what you look like, because that’s the point! Naturism is one of the best ways to become more confident! Equally you should never be ashamed to let people know how confident you are about yourself! What we do is safe, legal, and healthy; there is no need to “admit” to naturism! YBN instills the true values of body acceptance and shows us that nakedness is nothing to be ashamed of and is in the truest sense natural. There is no pressure to join in anything you don’t want to, and we are confident you will find your feet in no time.
How do you keep in touch?
We have a discussion forum in our private members' area which is used to discuss events, meet people all over the UK and get to know those in your local area. We have calendars to see what youth events are coming up and when, also for members to advertise their own events, as-well as a gallery to post their Naturist pictures. It’s a great place to get to know people discussing anything from general chit chat to organising lifts to events.
