Returning to my local nudist club after months away felt like coming back to a familiar sanctuary. Surrounded by familiar faces, warm greetings, and a sense of community, it revitalizes me. Accepted as I am, it's a place where I flourish and feel unburdened from the stress of the real world. Whenever I’m there and witness this vibrant community, I think of the ‘third place’—a term introduced by sociologist Ray Oldenburg in his 1989 book, "The Great Good Place." 🪐
