Why AANR Membership Matters? / Member Benefits

Why AANR Membership Matters?

The American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) has worked since 1931 to promote a better understanding of the clothes-free lifestyle and the naturalness of nude recreation, providing services for members throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond. AANR has served more than 213,000 individuals who enjoy clothes-free and clothing-optional recreation throughout North America. Currently, there are over 260 nudist clubs affiliated with AANR. Membership provides many opportunities for fun, yet joining AANR is similar to investing in an insurance policy, ensuring that the right to enjoy nude recreation in appropriate settings is protected.
