Serving nudist families, couples and singles, primarily in the areas of Washington, DC; in Maryland from Annapolis to Baltimore and beyond; and from Northern Virginia to Richmond and Winchester.

"I just wanted to say that the home page for Bare Buns Family Nudist Club is beautiful and enlightening.  It has inspired my wife and me to plan our first-ever trip to a nudist resort. This trip will be our 23rd wedding anniversary gift to each other. We're both looking forward to it immensely. Keep up the good work!"

— Phil and Sandra McKirk, Boulder, CO

"We sold our house will move to Florida in two weeks. We are very sorry that we only found Bare Buns so recently. We would have loved to have spent more time with all the wonderful folks that we met at Bare Buns. We got together with (a couple we met at another non-landed nudist club), and urged them to attend your events, since you have such diverse activities and far more interesting people. Thank you for all the good times and good luck with Bare Buns's continued mission of fellowship and good, clean fun."

— Warren and Linda Heimler, Randallstown, MD

"My wife and I would like more information on your club and its activities. We have never experienced a nudist environment, but we are open-minded people that have been married for over 18 years. We have both read the information on your site. We like what we read and are very intrigued."

— Randy and Cheryl Waldrop, Lynchburg, VA

"I would like to compliment you on your very fine web site. Your photos are very tastefully done and your quotes are a very good argument for the nudist movement."

— Charles and Mary Anne Cooksey, Midlothian, VA

The quotes in our web site ARE NOT MADE UP. Some have been edited for brevity and almost all have had the names changed to protect the privacy of our contributors, but essentially, they are real quotes from real people. We didn't change the Pope's name, or the names of other well-known people such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hippocrates, Henry David Thoreau,  George Orwell, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Dr. Lee Salk, C. S. Lewis, Elle MacPherson, Michaelangelo, Samuel Adams, Helen Keller, Mark Twain, Dr. Dean Edell, Tarzan and Dilbert.

Please Note: This site contains pictures depicting wholesome, family nudity. If you manage to find anything erotic here, it would have to be because you have a VERY dirty mind.

Clothes-Free Recreation

Many people who try clothes-free recreation agree that it just feels good. Add a wholesome attitude toward the nude body, and the experience can be very innocent. BARE BUNS was founded "to provide opportunities to enjoy healthful, wholesome, and relaxing clothes-free recreation in a family environment without any appearance of shame."

Our Club

We are a group of approximately 250 men, women and children, mostly in the Washington - Baltimore - Richmond - Annapolis area, who enjoy getting together for a variety of social and recreational activities, both clothed and unclothed. If you've ever been curious about what is involved in clothes-free recreation, you've come to the right place! We've designed this web site with the intention of providing accurate, complete information, written in an encouraging way, to people who are either interested or just curious.

We're what some nudists call a "travel" club, but we are not a travel club in the more popular sense of an organization that arranges tours and travel, and we are not a travel agency. In nudist jargon, a "travel" club is simply one that does not have its own property. Those with property are called "landed" clubs, or parks or resorts.

If you are looking for a travel agency that specializes in clothes-free cruises or destination resorts, let us know. We will be happy to refer you to just such a travel agency, owned by people we know and trust to provide you with top service at competitive rates.

However, we occasionally organize a weekend trip to a legal nude beach, or to one of the landed nudist parks; we have infrequently organized longer, more distant trips to nudist destinations or to other places, such as ski resorts (we ski clothed, in case you were wondering).

Take Off With Us

Many of our visitors to this site (perhaps you?) will eventually get around to experiencing clothes-free recreation. While you may be understandably nervous at first (most of us were), just about everyone who finally gets up the courage to try it feels completely comfortable very quickly, often within as little as fifteen minutes! After just a couple of hours, you will almost certainly wonder why you've thought nudity was such a big deal all these years!

Bare Buns has a great deal to offer to almost everyone. We invite you to "Take Off With Us!"

Our friends who have boats can't take us out as often as we'd like. We're looking for someone with a fairly large boat who would enjoy taking us for a Saturday or Sunday of sailing, sunning and skinny dipping. We treat your property with respect and help out when asked. We're fun, but we don't allow illegal drugs, excessive drinking or sexual behavior, and we expect the same of you. If you're interested, drop us an e-mail; let's talk!
