Our Review

One of the most controversial and misinterpreted lifestyles, nudism can be a hard one to practice. Such certainly applies when it comes to dating when your potential partner might not be too keen on dating a nudist. Nudist Friends claims to provide a solution to get past that particular hurdle by creating a safe and fun environment where nudists, exhibitionists, and natural living enthusiasts can mingle and connect. 

First launched in 2001 under SuccessfulMatch, the Nudist Friends' community continues to grow since then. With over 800,000 members worldwide, it has become the leading site when it comes to nude dating. Being a haven for naked practitioners, Nudist Friends also offers tons of information if you are looking to try out this lifestyle for yourself. 

In this review, we took a closer look at Nudist Friends to see if it backs up all its claims. Is the site really for nudists or is it just a scam with oodles of sexually explicit content? All that and more in this in-depth review!

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Over 800,000 registered members worldwide
  • Most of the site's traffic comes from the United States, Canada, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Australia
  • On average, the site receives over 1,000 unique visits daily
  • Receives 30,000 organic monthly visits
  • There is an almost even number of men and women on the site

Claiming to be the #1 relationship site for nudists, Nudist Friends has over 800,000 registered members worldwide. Most of the site's visitors are from the United States, Canada, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Australia. On average, the website receives 1,000 daily logins and 30,000 organic monthly visits. All in all, Nudist Friends is performing quite well for a niche site. It is truly one of the frontrunners when it comes to nude dating.

Nudist Friends has an almost equal amount of male and female members. What was more interesting was the trend we have noticed among the age distribution. It would seem that there are far older members than there are young ones. There is only a minuscule percentage of people from ages 18 to 34. With this data, we can infer that, perhaps, the older people, ages 45 and above, are more inclined to practice the nudist lifestyle.

Signing Up

Nudist Friends Registration
  • Registration is free and only takes three to five minutes
  • There are phone and email verification steps to complete
  • The site administrators review photos

Nudist Friends, despite its nudity, does not tolerate pornography, scammers, and users with malicious intent. Despite having a simple registration process, the site has taken necessary security protocols to make sure that the members are real instead of people who want to use this site for pornographic means, or worse. You can sign up via Facebook or email. Either way, you must enter your phone number where you will be sent a verification code. To proceed to the website, you must input the said code first.

The sign-up process consists of three major sections. First, you must input the necessary information such as your gender orientation, sexual preference, age, email address (if you are signing up via email), and lastly, mobile phone number.

Second, you must upload a clear photo of yourself. This photo must be approved first by the site moderators before they can appear on the website. Due to the sensitive nature of Naturism, the moderators take extra care in making sure that these photos are in line with the philosophy, rather than pornographic. 

Third, you can write a brief "About Me", and a short write up on the ideal match you wish to find. Upon creating your account, you can change these details on the "Profile" section. So, there's no need to worry about coming up with great bios right then and there.

Making Contact

Nudist Friends Members
  • Send up to 50 winks per day
  • A Standard Member can reply to any message but can't initiate one
  • Match with other people via "Let's Match"
  • You can "recall" messages to unsend regrettable messages

Nudist Friends does not only want to fill the niche for nudist dating, but it also wants to bedazzle its users with loads of features and functionalities. Although we like interactive online dating sites in general, Nudist Friends might have had too much of everything. Too many features, too many stimuli (despite its plain white background, ironically), and just too much of everything. It is not necessarily a bad thing, but users can find it hard to keep track and make sense of it all. Think of it as having the features of 10 dating sites merged into one.

On the site, you can actively search for people while also liking and disliking suggested matches to you via the "Let's Match" feature. You can create a favourites list and send up to 50 winks per day. You can also send messages and hit other people up on the Instant Messenger. When we tell you that it is like a double of everything, it is a double of everything. Despite the dating platform's bare design, its features are far from minimalistic.

One good thing that we can infer from the extravagance of these features is that there is enough usability left for its Standard Members. Although you have more access and privileges with the Gold Membership, we can safely say that being a Standard Member isn't quite so bad. You may not be able to initiate a conversation, but you can still reply to other members' messages. Plus, you can also "recall" messages you might not want to read. 

What was a significant win for us is the amount of content you can read on the site's blogs and forums. These forums are very interactive and informative. From first date tips to handling the daily struggles of being the only nudist in the family, a wide range of topics are being discussed and talked about here. This might be especially helpful for those seeking a sense of belongingness or even for those looking to try out Naturism. 

Profile Quality

Nudist Friends Profile
  • You can grant anyone access to your private album
  • Pornographic content is not tolerated on the site and deleted immediately
  • Profiles can be hidden if you don't wish to appear on searches

    Having a complete and detailed profile can prove to be advantageous when it comes to this site. Although the general feel of Nudist Friends is somewhat laidback and friendly, it is better to come across as an authentic person with no ill-intent or whatsoever.

    Nudist Friends, despite the vast number of private parts displayed, does not tolerate any sexually explicit content. Therefore, no matter how many private parts you see on site, these are not sexual in context at all. These photos merely follow "Naturism" or the philosophy of living life harmoniously with nature. 

    You can upload up to 26 photos which you can categorise as either public or private. You can grant other members access to your private albums if you are comfortable to do so. However, note that the moderators keep track of your uploaded content. Therefore, any offensive photos that might violate the community guidelines shall be deleted right away. 

    If you are still on the fence regarding nudism and you are merely testing out the waters, you can hide your profile so it will not appear in the search results. Nudist Friends still offers discretion, to some degree. 

    App

    Nudist Friends Mobile
    • No mobile app available on the market today
    • Optimised for mobile browsing
    • On mobile, the site looks more compact and organised
    • Free to access; no downloads needed
    • A good alternative for on the go users

    Unfortunately, Nudist Friends does not have a complementary mobile app. However, you can still access the website on your mobile browser. If you are tired of surfing on your laptop, you can use your mobile phone as an alternative. While it indeed is not a substitute for an actual mobile app, having an optimised mobile version is still a good solution.

    On mobile, the site looks more compact, put-together, and organised. It seems a lot neater yet still retains the trademark minimalistic background of the actual site. It is entirely free to access with no downloads and installations needed. 

    Real Life Review

    "The site, I admit does not look that nice or appealing. However, I decided to give it a try since it is one of the few rare dating sites that cater to someone like me, a nudist. I know nudism isn't a popular practice and finding a nudist community is almost like winning a jackpot. Nudist Friends offers exactly just that--a safe community for nudist friends. While it does not look very appealing, I had fun going through the forums and just getting in touch with other people on this site. I can relate to what everybody's posting while I can also receive a bunch of tips on how to handle boners in public. The site has a good amount of nudist content, and most are not sexual at all. A true nudist site, that's for sure." - George, 43

    Design and Usability

    Nudist Friends' weakness might be its overall design and user interface. The site has a plain, white background and has no exciting elements to up the ante. We thought that by having a minimalistic background might make way for easier usability. The site certainly has proved us wrong. The buttons are unorganised and have no cohesion. If you are a member, you'd be easily confused navigating yourself around.

    However, the site offers loads of content on its forums which you can read. While its design might be a bit lacklustre, if you are a newbie on nudism and wanted to learn more about the lifestyle or if you are a Naturism practitioner looking to connect with others, you are sure to have tons of information and content to digest here. 

    Indeed, Nudist Friends is a good source of learning about the nudist lifestyle, the perks, and the everyday struggles. Don't let its looks fool you!

    Special Features

    Nudist Friends is an exciting nudist website that offers a plethora of contacting features. These features help build a sense of belongingness and community among the site's members. 

    Certified Nudist

    You can get certified by printing a specific document, taking a picture of yourself both clothed and naked with the said document, and uploading these photos on the site. When you become a certified nudist, a "Certified Nudist" logo would appear on your profile. 

    The site claims that when you are a certified member, you can get 20 times more views, emails, credibility, and serious contacts. You will also be listed in the "Certified Nudist" list and appear above others on the search results page. 

    First Date Ideas

    This works like a blog where you can read other members' writings and write your own, should you wish to do so. The main theme, however, is first date ideas. If you are feeling nervous about your first nudist date and have no idea what to do, reading on the thread of ideas can surely be a great help. 

    First Nudist Experiences

    Nudist Friends prides itself to be a safe community for nudists. It does so by having a massive pool of content for members to read on how their first nudist experience went. You can read and know all about the nudist lifestyle by creating topics and initiating discussions on this forum-like feature. You can sort through the latest postings, read the most popular, or go about per topic and category.

    Nudist Dating Advice

    This section contains comprehensive dating tips made by the members and the site moderators alike. Since Nudist Friends is also a dating site at its very core, it makes sense that this feature would be here as well. The Nudist Dating Advice contains some noteworthy titles such as, "Do not tell a woman that you are a nudist at first date," and, "Bring your date to live nude with the kids."

    Let's Meet

    This is, perhaps, the site's most exciting feature. When you use this feature, you'll be given profiles which you can like or dislike. It surely pays homage to the "Swipe Right" feature that has been on trend for the majority of the dating apps we enjoy today. 

    When you get a mutual like, then you are matched with that person. However, the site does not rely on this feature alone. There are still a bunch of other functionalities you can use to contact others if you find "Let's Meet" to be too slow and cumbersome.

    Editors Conclusion

    Photo Chris
    Nudist Friends might not look much in comparison to the flashier and sleeker dating sites of today. However, it offers something that others do not: a safe and fun environment for the most misunderstood lifestyle, nudism. Overall, the contacting features are very standard and not all that exciting. Nevertheless, the site more than makes up for it with the forums and the blogs where you can participate and ingest a bunch of content about nudity and Naturism. It is also a bonus that although the site has a bunch of nude photos, none of them is pornographic. Hence, if you are interested in taking a plunge into the au naturale lifestyle, be sure to sign up on Nudist Friends.
