Southern California Naturist Association, Family-Friendly Nude Recreation
Welcome to the Southern California Naturist Association

SCNA is a clothing-optional travel club. We are a group of nudists and like-minded friends in the Greater Los Angeles area with no specific park or resort to call home. That frees us to explore the many opportunities for recreation and socializing that are available in our warm, beautiful region.

Within these pages you may encounter pictures of normal people just like you having fun camping, hiking, boating, and such, except they are doing so without the restriction of clothing. This website reflects our family-friendly orientation and illustrates the fun activities that we enjoy. It also has many articles and links that are excellent resources for expanding one’s understanding of nudism in America and world-wide.

If you are under age or otherwise not permitted to view frontal nudity in your home or community, please leave this site now. If you are looking for sexual content, or photos of children, you have definitely come to the wrong place!

About Female Mensturation at Nudist Resorts

Our Most Frequently Asked Question from Women…

The Question:

How does a woman deal with her period in a nudist park or at a nude beach?

Our Answer:

Menstruation is looked upon as a normal, healthy function. The wearing of shorts or the use of tampons enables women to enjoy most of their nudist activities. It is not a subject of notice or comment.

During this time of the month for women, many nudist women will wear bathing suit bottoms. What they all wear to prevent leakage is a matter of personal preference, but many wear tampons. Some avoid nudist venues during the first couple of days, feeling more comfortable to stay at home until able to control the flow with a tampon.

Going without precautions to capture menstrual flow in the nudist setting is not recommended. One wouldn’t do it in a textile setting so you shouldn’t do it in a nudist setting either. There are thousands of women nudists that are still full time nudists while menstruating. They all take the usual precautions. Doing this doesn't make them any less a nudist, full or part-time.
