Nonsensenyc prejudice against Young Naturists America – Nudism & Naturism is still a problem for many!
NonSenseNYC - Let me start off by saying that I (Jordan) am not looking to shame anyone, and businesses have to make decisions based on what they think will prove to be the best for them. I posted this interaction because I want people to understand what we have to deal with on a daily basis and that there is still much work to be done. In every event that is held, people need to be aware of the fact that any misbehavior may count against us all – so please keep that in mind when attending the next nudist event or location in your area.
While we are making some headway in mainstream America, there is still much work to be done! Below you will see the interaction between Jordan from Young Naturists America & Jeff from Nonsensenyc.com – Nonsense is a website / newsletter that covers all kinds of events in the NYC area – we contacted them with the hopes of working with them to promote our Nude Years Eve Party.

no. sorry. i think someone from your group has sent a few listings already. sorry, but i wont run it. i’ve had this conversation several times over the years, but i dont list sex stuff. im sure that youre going to argue that being naked is not about sex, and i’m sure that’s true. however, it’s connected to something about the sex parties in that both can go very wrong if they’re even on the edge of creepy. i personally am not in that world, and i dont really know anyone who is. that means i have no idea of knowing if your party is creepy.
this is not a fair decision, but it’s one that i feel confident in: i can’t cover everything, and some subcultures deserve their own listings.
i wish you luck with your show.
Thank you for getting back to me. Let me start off off by saying that you are 100% correct a- you have no idea what you are talking about and b- your decision is an unfair one. This closed minded ultra conservative approach is the very thing we are trying to combat almost every day. It is your call, your business and I respect that – but I would appreciate it tremendously if you would please refrain from making such uninformed assumptions about something that you yourself claim to have no knowledge about. That being said – while I disagree with your reasoning and narrow minded approach I do respect your decision.
All the best,
Jordan & The whole YNA Family
