Modeling brings a person, naked, into public contact with other
people, all of whom are clothed. The discrepancy between clothedness
and nakedness sets up an artificial separation which tends to be
continually jarring. Some models counteract the jarring effect of
this discrepancy by developing social contacts at nudist resorts or at
clothes-optional recreation sites (usually pools and beaches) where
nakedness is shared instead of isolated, social nudity is far more
different from nudity for modeling than people often recognize. It is
a useful adjunct, rather than a substitute for, professional
preparation. For more information contact The Naturist Society (P.O.
