Planet Nude is a newsletter exploring nudity in history, culture, politics and art.

Welcome to Planet Nude, a free multiweekly newsletter and podcast investigating the intersections of nudism and culture, politics, and art.

We embrace the idea that nudity unites us, advocating for the right to be comfortable and free in our own skin. Our mission is to foster a community where naturism’s ideas and benefits are discussed, and highlight how nudity can drive positive change. We explore naturism’s philosophy, celebrate nudism’s unique culture and aesthetic, and spotlight contemporary artists and individuals embodying naturist values.
