Tampa, FL, February 10, 2007 --(PR.COM)-- Nudists and naturists make up a large share of the American population. In a 2006 Roper Poll, 24% of the population have gone "skinny dipping" or nude sunbathing. For the under 35 group, the number is 32%. That's one out of four in the general population and almost 1/3 of the under 35 market.
The American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) reports nude recreation and tourism has grown into a multi-million dollar business, more than doubling in size in the last 10 years, according to travel industry estimates. It now includes several nude cruises, nude flights to Mexico,and clothing-optional condos and luxury resorts in nearly every tourist destination.
High-end nudist resorts are springing up in Florida, California, Mexico, the Caribbean, with luxury condos, villas, hotels, and high-end RV parks, equipped with WiFi Internet access.
With the variety of locations and many new participants in Nude Recreation, there is a need for currently updated nudist information, and nudist websites help fill that need.
