Prosecutions can follow if another citizen is offended, but few ever are. The first nude beach in Germany was established in on the island of Sylt.

Members visit these clubs to sunbathe nude or indulge in a spot of nacktjoggen or nacktwandern -- naked jogging or rambling through the countryside wearing only backpacks, boots or running shoes. The heartland of public nakedness also still has a plethora of designated FKK beaches and nudist zones in public parks and on beaches. Berlin public parks have FKK areas: the famous Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg, the Volkspark Friedrichshain and the Tiergarten, and it's permitted to get naked on all Berlin's public bathing beaches, such as at Wannsee or the Mueggelsee.

Along the German coastline, the nudity ground zero of Sylt Island is still going strong. Sylt's Kampen beach might now be a popular destination for the rich and famous -- but in Germany, they too love getting their clothes off. For those who like to put some distance between themselves and the next naked bather, Germany's largest Baltic island, Ruegen, has no fewer than five FKK beaches.

A full list of public nude bathing areas is available in German at nacktbaden. Tiergarten Park is another public park in Berlin with designated areas to go nude. The easiest way to bare it all in Deutschland is to visit one of the aforementioned public FKK areas. There are no changing rooms, so undressing takes place in public -- but again, not one German is going to be offended by this. Most FKK beaches on the coast will also have signs indicating textile-free zones.

After passing these signs, visitors will need to disrobe immediately to avoid being reprimanded by the lifeguards who also enforce the rules. Private FKK clubs welcome new members and offer trial memberships for beginners. The days of bare-it-all Germany, however, seem to be in decline.

Most young people are fine with sunbathing topless in parks and pools, and like me have no qualms whatsoever with undressing for the sauna. But the ideals of the German nudist movement are slowly dying away. FKK clubs have complained about shedding members, in east Germany especially, since the Berlin Wall came down. Maybe in today's Germany there's no longer a need for demonstrating liberty and freedom by shedding our clothes.

I also spent a great deal of time in Law Libraries attempting to locate important legal documents related to anti-nudity laws, nudist obscenity cases and raids on nudist camps.

As I developed an archive for this project, I took great satisfaction every time I found references to nudism in completely unexpected places—mainstream magazines like Literary Digest or Time profiling the emergence of the movement , an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association JAMA explaining the therapeutic benefits soldiers gained from the sun, or a debate about nudism in the Congressional Record. It was amazing how the weird and quirky can be found in the most ordinary places. The American nudist movement left behind an enormous amount of rich sources that were not always located in the typical archive or library.

While most archives require you to place your bags in a locker or to wear gloves while touching delicate materials, the ANRL asks its patrons to bring their own towel to use when they sit at the reading table. The small climate controlled building expertly maintained by Helen Fisher contains full runs of numerous nudist magazines dating back to the s, it has personal papers of several nudist leaders, legal documents, rare nudist books, and club newsletters. Despite the naked patrons sitting next to me, I was also allowed to use my digital camera to capture entire runs of critical magazines like The Nudist to and Sunshine and Health to Whenever possible I attempted to digitize my sources and organize them electronically so that they were fully searchable and could be easily reviewed and annotated outside of the archive—in this case a nudist resort.

One of the strangest experiences I had researching this project involved a missing picture of a nude female javelin thrower and the Congressional Record. Over the years, many of the older nudist books from the s, despite often being held in special collections, frequently had images removed by library patrons. To make matters worse, it was often difficult to discern if a picture had been ripped out. When Martin Dies R. Several Congressmen objected to the full frontal nudity displayed in a picture of a woman throwing a javelin. I was now more determined than ever to see this javelin thrower!

I did not anticipate that a case study of an eccentric marginal social movement would require me to develop expertise in so many different sub-fields of American history.

In addition to drawing on the history of gender, sexuality, and the body, I found myself making substantial connections to legal history, the history of health and healing, political history, literary studies, religious studies, art history, the history of race relations, film studies, and the history of rural America. I learned quite a bit about a variety of areas of American History and really enjoyed the opportunity to present papers at a variety of disciplinary specific conferences.
