     Common Hesitations
  • Everyone will be staring at me!
    - If you walk through a mall nude, people certainly would. Here everyone is nude and it is highly unlikely.

  • I'm (pick one) - too fat, too skinny, etc.
    - Our members are not beauty queen or Greek gods, just ordinary people like you.

  • What if someone I know is there?
    - If they are here, they are nude also. Now you have something else in common.

  • What if someone finds out I'm a nudist?
    - We go to great lengths to protect the privacy of our members and guests. Nudism is really not anything to be ashamed of; it is practiced worldwide.

    Information : "So, your partner is interested in nudism..."

    "So, your partner is interested in nudism..."

    We have never met, but I am taking the
    liberty to write you because I understand that
    your significant other has become interested in
    nudism or clothes-free recreation. You are
    wondering whether or not to share this with
    him. My husband and I are nudists, and like
    you, we both experienced all the concerns and
    uncertainties the first time we tried it. All the
    vague fears and worries I fretted about proved
    groundless. I would like to help you
    experience and become comfortable with this
    lifestyle. I hope you will let me try.

    Perhaps telling about my first experience
    with nude recreation will lead you to that end.
    I was vacationing at a resort in the Caribbean.
    The first two days were spent on the beach
    sitting in a soggy swimsuit and being chafed by
    sand. I signed up for a day boat trip and picnic
    at a beach on an island away from the resort.
    As we were leaving, I discovered that the
    excursion was to an island with a nude beach!
    I decided to go anyway, thinking no way was
    anybody getting me out of my suit. I stood
    firm and, in fact, was the last person to give in
    and shed my swimsuit - I was the last one to
    get dressed to return to the resort. Why hadn't
    someone told me about this sooner? I was
    hooked, and that was over 30 years ago. The
    phrase, "nude when possible, clothed when
    practical," definitely describes me. I do wear at
    least shoes when vacuuming the house though
    as I have a habit of running over my toes with
    the vacuum cleaner.

    I admit that my first reaction was that this was
    something that was not an acceptable practice.
    I was unaware that there is a national
    organization and did not know anyone who
    could shed light on this relaxing way of life.
    The literature available today, some of
    which your significant other might have asked
    you to look over, tells it like it is. Everyone will
    tell you that once you have made your first visit,
    the feeling of apprehension will vanish. Until
    you experience a thing for yourself, words
    cannot tell you how you should feel or how
    you should act or react.

    Believe in your mate. You have a good
    relationship, and he has never asked you to
    do anything that was wrong or really
    unpleasant. Occasionally, we don't want to
    do some things at first, but since it means a
    great deal to him, it usually turns out fine.
    This too, means a great deal to him. When
    you decide to visit a club, give them a call
    and inform them that this will be your first
    visit. Contrary to what most people believe,
    you generally will not be asked to leave your
    clothes at the gate. You will be given a tour
    of the premises, where the pool or hot tub,
    or other facilities are located. If you are
    visiting a non-landed club, you will most
    likely visit with some of the members at a
    neutral location, i.e., coffee shop, after which
    you will be invited to an event.

    Some common fears of women with
    whom I have been in contact include being
    secretly worried that she wouldn't be as
    attractive to her spouse as she had been,
    compared with all the beautiful figures she
    was sure must be there. For the most part,
    there is a normal cross-section of the
    population. The solution for this particular
    lady was the security she felt in her
    relationship and that the relationship was
    based on more than just physical
    attractiveness. Another fear is what sort of
    people will I meet. You will meet doctors,
    lawyers, clergymen and women, taxi drivers,
    accountants, secretaries, warehousemen,
    waiters, school teachers, moms, dads,
    grandparents, teenagers, infants. We are
    your neighbors, your friends.

    It's a wonderful feeling to meet entirely
    new people and enjoy new interests and
    activities. There is a peculiar thing you have
    to experience to believe, but there is a
    friendliness about nudists that you will
    generally not find in any other group. I have
    come to count our nudist friends among my
    closest. They seem to always be there for me,
    for us.

    Why don't you try your hand at being a
    nudist in your own home. Try sleeping
    nude, if you don't already--once you get used
    to it, you won't want to sleep any other way.
    That's the first easy step. Then, when you
    take your shower or bath, don't grab for a
    robe except for comfort. Do your nails or
    set your hair, or just read the newspaper. I
    think you will enjoy it. If you exercise, try it
    without clothes, it feels wonderful. Wear
    whatever you need to feel comfortable.
    Since it's convenient and healthful at times
    to dispense with clothes, nudists do. We're
    not different from other people, just more

    I hope I've been able to help just a little.
    Offer a compromise to your mate. Give him
    an hour of your time, you will wish you had

     In Memoriam
    On October 7, 2014, the cofounder of the Bar S Ranch, Harvey Ellis Stewart, Jr. passed away at Baptist Memorial Hospital. He was born on November 23,1940 and spent most of his life promoting the nudist lifestyle. Ellis started the Dixie Sun Club in Georgia before moving to North Carolina. Ellis and Wanda purchased the first 200 acres of the Ranch and used it for cattle farming for several years before opening the Bar S Ranch in 1989. Several charter members gathered by the lake and floated in inner tubes before the first clubhouse was built. An additional 200 acres was purchased, another clubhouse built and the Ranch became one of the largest landed clubs (in acreage) in the United States.

    The Bar S Ranch will continue to thrive under new management and the legacy will be preserved.
