under age newbies

Why does TH allow under aged people come into this group. I think there should be an age limit for joining like at least 21 yrs old . Does anyone know if there is such an age limit here?

RE: under age newbies

I guess the problem here is that the age of majority varies from country to country. While 21 is considered to be adult in the US, here in the UK we get there at 18 while in Japan it's 20. With the internet being an international medium. we have to accept that some leeway is required.
Maybe the criterion to cling to is whether or not a person behaves in a responsible, adult manner, but let's face it, there are plenty of over-21s on here with a very juvenile attitude.
If it helps, consider how many people under 21 are serving in Afghanistan and Iraq at the moment and ask yourself if they should be welcome here. Personally, I'm more comfortable hanging out with people around my own age, but that doesn't mean I want to deny younger people access - so long as they don't make too much noise and keep their rooms tidy.

under age newbies

I was just going to say, you can put any age in ur profile. So there might be a number of memebers here who are under the agelimit. I guess this limit has been set to avoid any legal issues. Then again not a lot of nudist sites are available to the younger crowd. Have come across a thread posted by a member who wasn't 18 yet but desperatly wanted to talk to people about nudism and the trouble it was giving at home. Still, setting age bounderies is a good thing I think.

RE: under age newbies

If we are 'true nudists' we shouldn't really care how old people are to access this site as long as they are also 'true nudists'. I would prefer to know the real age of someone rather than have them lie in order to gain access. The legal issue is usually to do with where the server is located - I assume that it is in the US and must comply with US (or even State) law. Perhaps 'youger people' should have their nude profile images hidden until they are age verified.

RE: under age newbies

I find this thread amusing. Are we ashamed to show our bodies to the younger generation? Would we not raise our own children as nudists? I think that the fact that younger people are coming here shows that they are looking for help and answers. In many cases, I do not believe they are wanting to look at photos. If they say their 18, answer their questions. If they say they are younger and you don't feel comfortable speaking with them, then just politely decline for that reason.

As a note, the age of majority in the USA is 18; there just happens to be an additional three years before one is able to drink.

underage nudists would be ok as long as they have a profile photo with at least one of thei parents in it to show their approval, lots of families are nudists and its ok to do so isn't what this site promotes? lets keep in mind that this site is not meant to be sexual in any way and lets try and keep it that way too!!!

RE: underage nudists

To be a member of this site one MUST be 18.

There are several legitimate and wholesome nudist sites that are geared specifically for teens. If you run across ANY underage profiles you can direct them to these sites (and notify site admin via the flagging system that the profile is underage):


Young Adults for Nude Recreation (18-35)
Young Naturist Association International (16-35)
Naturist-Christians.org (Has a forum specifically for 13-19 year olds and one for 16-25 year olds)

I am sure there are other legitimate and wholesome nudist sites geared specifically for teens. These are the ones that I was made aware of and researched while looking for sites to recommend to a 16 year old several months ago who has since been removed from this site.

The minimum age limit for TN is 18 to comply with federal law. Whether other countries have different ages is irrelevant. The TN site is hosted in the US and must therefore comply with US statutes.

I fully agree with Jen. Redirecting young people to an appropriate site is much more effective than simply getting rid of them. Chances are that when they do reach age of majority they may return to TN asknowledgeableand contributing members of this site. We frequently wonder why there aren't more youngpeople getting involved and I feel that treating them respectfully is integral to their participation.

Guys, of all people you both know you're not supposed to be advertising other websites on here. Even if it's for nudists who aren't allowed on here.


I'm going to disagree with you on this, Rabbit. I am not advertising nor amI promoting these other websites. They are listed for informational purposes only as ones that allow nudists under the age of 18. They in no way are competing with TN as they are not social networking sites.Two areforum board only. One is purely informational.


The actual rules is:
- Topics promoting Other websites or deemed SPAM will be deleted.

The topic of this thread is whether there is an age limit on this site. My response is that yes there is and that underage nudists on this siteshould be and have been directed to sites where they are allowed. I am not promoting these sites nor am I flooding (or spamming) the forum with them. It is no different than providing links to the breast cancer website, the haitian/australian/italydisaster relief organization links or any of the other informational links that we all post on here. But just to be sure that I am not misinterpreting this I will email TT1 and ask him ifit is in violation of the forum/group postings andgladlyremove them if they are.

Um...no, this is wrong. There is an implied "three year" rule when it comes to a person's sex life in that if there is a 16 y/o having relations with someone older, then it is seen as ok if the person they are in a relationship is not over the age of 19 y/o. Technically, though, if the parents of the younger party wanted to be sticklers for the law, then they can persuade the legal system to try and indict with statutory rape. This is usually not a good idea since the courts will throw it out if both of the parties are in highschool or have known each other through highschool. Unfortunately, there have been some cases where fairly vocal parents of the victim have won on the statutory rape charges.

I have to agree with Jen here. Redirection of an underage person who is not eligible to join this site anyway is not in my opinion promotion of an external site but rather a useful tool and as she says informational. As these people cannot legally join TN I do not feel that there is any competition with TN. I have seen many posts which quite openly mention other sites (without giving a link) which are considered to be correct in posts and from which anyone can google to find the site.

RE: underage nudists

Nudism is a FAMILY orientated lifestyle, there is no age limit as to who can take part in it. The US laws need to get with the programme.

The laws are not directed at nudism, but at child pornography.

TITLE 18 PART I CHAPTER 110 2256

2256. Definitions for chapter

For the purposes of this chapter, the term

(1) minor means any person under the age of eighteen years;

USC Title 18, Chapter 110, 2256 - Definitions for chapter

The full chapter 110:

USC Title 18, Chapter 110 - Sexual Exploitation And Other Abuse Of Children.mht

The problem is not with the law per se, but with the "interpretations" of the law and the enforcement of those interpretations. People's lives have been destroyed for bringing film with innocent photos of kids in a bathtub to be developed by Wal-Mart or other companies. Prudists are on the march, out to find depravity in totally innocuous photography. Make an error and you'll be in court fighting to save your reputation if not your livelihood and family. It's that bad here.

"Nudism is a FAMILY orientated lifestyle, there is no age limit as to who can take part in it." There is, however, an age limit in the US below which photographs of that lifestyle can and will be used by prudists and gymnophobes to make life a living hell for nudists.

Other info:

Adult Websites, Pornography and the Law
2257. Record keeping requirements

Given the hoops through which a website owner must jump in order to allow nude photos of minors to be posted online, it's far simpler and safer to disallow it. TN does not permit nude images of children, nor children appearing in a photo with nude adults, period.

Despite the family nature of the nudist lifestyle, for Internet purposes a nudist site is classified as an "adult" site, adult being defined as 18 or older. TN therefore does not knowingly allow minors to join and participate in the site. Any nudist site that does permit it must be constantly vigilant in order to avoid the gotchas and entrapments by the avowed enemies of nudism. It's not worth the effort.

When the kids reach 18, they're welcome here. Under 18, sorry, no can do.

RE: underage nudists

This may seem self-evident to others, but I guess not so much to me. If a person states that they're 18 (or over), how do you determine that they're not, based just on a small selection of profile photos? I'm asking this because there was a case recently where a man was arrested coming through customs with some DVD's that the customs officials claimed were child pornography. This man spent two years in jail awaiting trial, and the government's whole case was based on two things: the word of the customs person that the girl in the DVD's "had to be" a minor, and the testimony of a pediatrician who viewed the DVD and swore that the actress was under 18, based on her less-than-adult-looking phisical attributes.

When the case finally came to trial, the defense actually produced the actress, and her birth certificate, which proved that she was 19 when the movies were filmed. The defendant was freed, having lost two years of his life and endured a monumentally life-changing trauma. This begs the question: If a person joins True Nudists, and swears that they're 18, how would you judge them to be underage? I agree that the rules of the site are to be obeyed if you want to be a member, and that the site states people under 18 are not allowed to join. But how would you make that determination?

There is no way to tell. We have only the person's word for it. This is one major reason for certification. The person must provide photos that would make an underage individual quite obvious, unless he/she talked an adult into posing for them, which is improbable.
