Are You a Nudist or an Exhibitionist? Take the Quiz

“Isn’t naturism just another name for exhibitionism?”
Of all the question that I get asked about naturism, this is one of the most frequent.
It's a good question. But is it relevant? Does it matter if you’re a naturist or an exhibitionist, or maybe a bit of both? Well, I guess it’s a matter of degree, but let’s not get too heavy and judgmental here—we’ll save that for another post. The point is, it’s a valid question to ask ourselves and although I’m not sure I know the answer, I think I know the difference.
And so I’ve put together this short little quiz. It’s based upon personal observation and experience only and has no scientific or psychological basis whatsoever. It’s just a bit of fun, but maybe it will also help us think about our own reasons for getting naked. Some of the responses are obviously in there just for laughs, however, all of the other responses are actual opinions and actions that I’ve seen and heard over the years.

Please answer all of the questions, even those which are aimed at either males or females. I can't figure out how to do an either / or option and the quiz won't work unless all questions are answered, so you might need to exercise a little transgender imagination here!

Now it’s over to you. Have fun!
Select one answer per question from the choices available.

1. You come out of the shower or bath. There are other people in the house. Do you:
2. Do you think that you have the right to be naked anywhere at anytime, regardless of the circumstances or other people's feelings?
3. You are a male. Your social media profile indicates that you have an interest in naturism. Would your profile photo be:
4. You are a female. Your social media profile indicates that you have an interest in naturism. Would your profile photo be:
5. You've gone to a nudist beach. It's freezing. The only other beach users are fully clothed. Do you:
6. You are not yet a practicing nudist. You've seen a TV programme about nudists. How did it make you feel?
7. You’re relaxing naked on the lawn of your naturist club when a group of textile trespassers wander in. Do you:
8. You’re at your nudist club. The temperature has dropped uncomfortably. Do you:
9. You're clicking through a “nudist” website. It's full of explicit photos of attractive naked people in provocative poses. How does this make you feel?
10. You’re relaxing naked on the lawn of your naturist club when you spot a pair of peeping Toms spying on you. Do you:

Congratulations: you’ve finished! To find out whether you’re a nudist or an exhibitionist or somewhere in between click the submit button below. But don’t take it too seriously; it’s meant to be a bit of fun and the most scientific thing about this little quiz is the computer you’re reading it on.

    I believe it was # 7 that asked about confronting textiles. While my husband and I don’t confront them however we do often approach them and welcome them. I think it’s especially comforting to the textile females to help them feel safe and comfortable. Ms. K

      Hi Mrs K, and thanks for the comment -good to hear from you. I do like your approach. Welcome trespassing textiles instead of confronting them. I have to say I’m naturally a bit of a “confronter”, but your idea sounds much better. And the bit about the female presence makes sense of course. I’ll give it a go next time. . .

        I am in agreement with this person. The nudist club that I belong to is just that … no textile after you first or second visit you have to be a NUDIST. I would report the situation to the owners and they would invite them in. Or if they answer no the would have to leave”

      My comment will be a question to Sassycoupleok. What runs through your mind when you see a single male at a family friendly nudist resort.


    I have been a nudist for over 35 years, ASA/AANR member, member of my local club, have visited clubs all over US, most nude beaches in US, some in Europe, always nude at home, plan on buying a home in a nudist community soon, write articles for nudist publications, HUGE advocate for social nudity, public nudity should be legal everywhere it’s practical, enjoy sharing my experiences with others and meeting others, have introduced many people to the nudist lifestyle most being women……..

      Thanks for your comment Frank, and thanks for being such an active member of the nudist community. Keep up the good work.

    Good survey. While I don’t mind being “seen” by others, I don’t want to offend those who have a real aversion to nude bodies.

  4. Phillip may

    I’m an avid nudist and I’m surprised by my answers. I don’t care about textile people, I’m happy the way I am

  5. Mike Leche

    I am a shy naturist because I have not found someone to share my experience. I just can not bring myself to be open about it. Maybe if I did,I would find a like minded individual.
