Russian naturists in Kati Deriglazova photo project

Is it sexually naked body, is it worth to drive to the nudist beaches of children, why go naked, whether nudists consider each other and what are their requirements for beauty - the photographer Katya Deriglazova asked these Russian naturists.

Naturism - the maximum approach of man to nature. It is often identified with nudism, since the most visible attribute of naturism is exposure. But participants in the movement believe that nudists do not have a common philosophy, but only a feeling of comfort; Naturists associate the philosophy of life in harmony with nature.
The word "naturism" is included in the names of international organizations - for example, the International Federation of Naturism (INF), working under the auspices of UNESCO and having offices around the world (including in Russia; there is no representation in Ukraine).
Katya Deriglazova:
- If you type the word "nudists" in a search engine, we will get 16 pages of links to porn resources, diluted with news about celebrities who are sunbathing without a bra.
Actually, nudism is the opposite of pornography.It dismembers the body and accentuates its exciting parts. Naturism is the adoption of a whole personality, body, character, intellect.
In Russia, the naked body is tabooed. If you are not an athlete with ideal forms, you are likely to be called a vile pervert. In the largest nudist group of VKontakte about 20 thousand people, but a fair amount of participants are rather lovers of artisanal erotica.
It became interesting to me, in what relations with the body lovers themselves are naked, what they think about the connection between nudism and erotica. It turned out that most nudists are calmer in the company of their own kind, for example, on a beach or at home. Few people want to shock the nudity of others. Officially “bare” beaches in Russia do not exist at all, just as there are no statistics about nudism.
It was easy to find heroes for the project: personal acquaintances and the power of social networks went into action. 20 men responded to my ad in the nudist group, but many of them, upon learning that there would be no sex, changed their mind.
I expected that many people would want to hide their faces, but people turned out to be more honest and open than I expected. During shooting, I did not feel either fear or embarrassment - because I myself believe in the naturalness of exposure without sexual overtones.
"People make some monsters out of their genitals."

- A year in 2002, I learned about a [nudist] beach in Serebryany Bor. The body, both its own and someone else's, interested me both as a sexual object, and as something hidden, secret, that can be set free.
On the beach with anyone you can talk, ask for help. For homosexuals, the beach is a place for dating and short pleasant adventures. It's safe here, the main thing is not to linger until the night.
At home, I can never remember the clothes, if no one comes to visit. Although I also like clothes very much, I know a lot about it.
People cover their genitals so diligently that they make some monsters of them. Although this is quite a ridiculous thing, like three tomatoes.
I like to consider people, mentally comparing them with ancient ideals.
I am for freedom from any attitudes and ideologies. And quite happy with life and happy.
"I do not consider people on nude beaches"
Sarah, 38 years old, musician

- I was skinny in my youth, I was afraid to have sex - I thought a man would see these chicken bones and acne, get scared and run away. I thought my body smelled bad.
The experience of stage performances helped me to accept myself as I am. It is normal to be naked at home, at the doctor, with friends on the beach, on the stage - unless, of course, you do not disguise the lack of talent.
I do not consider people on nudist beaches - I do not want to be considered back. I do not go there with my son because I am afraid of pedophiles. To feel comfortable, I need a friendly hippie community.
"I am often called a pervert"

- I do not have a purely nudist party. Just a long time ago as a student, my entire company realized that exposure was not a problem for anyone.
At home I go naked - just comfortable. After the victory of Russia in the match with Spain at the World Championships, a naked over a beer in the company of a dressed wife and all three sons went to a dispute - and nothing happened.
I would like to have the opportunity, without getting dressed, jump out to the store or walk without pants in the heat. But we have male nudity even more taboo than female.
On the Internet, I am often called a pervert and they are offering money, now a big and pure male friendship.
“Tantrists are mostly very intrusive and sticky”
Charly, 37 years old, director

- From the age of 15 I was a hippo, went to different festivals where there were always a lot of naked people. And in 99% of cases it was in no way connected with erotica.
But I do not understand nudist clubs, there is some kind of pathology in this. For example, the tantrists are mostly very intrusive and sticky.
I think those who are afraid of being naked have either deep body dissatisfaction or powerful religious prohibitions.
It is unpleasant that someone thinks: once undressed - it means you are selling. I have been involved in Butoh theater for many years. Nude on the stage is primarily defenseless, outside the conventions of the costume, in the zero state.
“I like to watch couples on the beach”
Artem, 30 years old, is engaged in media planning

- In my youth I did not like myself. But I went in for sports, achieved the body I wanted, and now I support him with pleasure - it's like brushing my teeth.
On the beach I love to watch couples. Immediately evident who came for the first time, shy.
It is difficult to look at a beautiful naked woman and not having anything in mind. I first of all pay attention to high sports girls like me.
I do not cause disgust full or flabby bodies, but I think that everyone is a blacksmith of his own happiness.
I am pleased with people's attention, but sometimes I have to gently explain to men that it is not worth breaking my personal space.
“Sex is an important part of my life, but nudism is not connected with it”
Katya, 35 years old, editor, masseur

- For me, nudism is first of all freedom and lack of a framework: it's cold - you dress, it's hot - you undress.
Anyone who has ever bathed naked, no longer wants to.
I am not ashamed of my body. I admire beautiful beach, but I do not have any aversion to the old or “ugly” people.
Sex is an important part of my life, but nudism is not connected with it.
For the time being, even without erotic subtext, I have met the attitude towards the naked body only in hippie parties.
"I would like to undress in a public place"
Sergey, 34, taxi driver

- For the last two months I didn’t like myself, because my belly had grown.
I often accompany girls who want to undress in public as a guard. They did this even in the subway: they waited for an empty car, they glued the cameras, the girl dropped her raincoat, took several shots.
Undressing in public places is an experiment, adrenaline. My main fear is in old age to understand that I have not experienced something, have not tried it.
One girl asked me to bleed her to the blood. And he says: “I want to be roasted on a fire like a pig, and devoured”. I will not say whether it is normal or not, but I will not participate in such a dumb garbage.
I would like to undress in a public place, among dressed people, but this is illegal in our country.
“I just don’t look at unpleasant people”
Nadia, 30 years old, model

- At first I started to pose, and then I discovered nudist beaches. I admit, I like to see people, especially women.
Beauty is sexy to me. And subjective. I just don’t look at unpleasant people.
Well, if there are more places where you can walk without clothes. It’s normal to go there with children, let it be natural for them. And whom to let or not to let on such territories, let the community decide.
“Professor is your nudist. And the FSB presidential guard ”
Vsevolod, 39 years old, manager

- I have been going to the nudist beach in Serebryany Bor since 2009: every weekend I am there. All the less girls. Frequently jokingly say: men's bath.
Nobody is having sex on the beach. Is that swingers, but they have a separate glade.
Local complain - they say, all types of bushes drochat, scare children. And these are not people from the beach, but maniacs, "bushes." A girl is walking, and a “bush” is for her: “What time is it?” She turns around, and he presents herself, you know what.
When I undress, the mood rises. I always go home dressed, although I live alone.
Of course, nudity for me is related to sexuality.
Imperfect bodies do not confuse me, except that my stomach.
Children on the beach do not surprise anyone, but I would not lead my own. In general, the director of the bank XXX with a daughter goes to a nudist bath. And Professor N from your university with the family comes. And the FSB presidential guard.
Girls from work invited a couple of times in a nudist bath, but they refused, I do not know why.
And come to the beach. Only shoot you there, no one will.
"I do not want to get involved in these squabbles"
Cyrilla, 33 years old, copywriter

- The whole conversation with the body is about the society and its circles of hell.
The truth was revealed to me in Fox Bay (the famous resting place of naturists and hippies in the Crimea. - Ed.), On the first evening. Following the guide, I undressed and asked a stupid question: “What, is that right?” “Do you need anything else at sea? Then take it and go swimming! ”
You can argue for a long time about how many kilograms I should have, what is considered healthy, to whom I have the right to show myself. There is also a dispute about boundaries. Someone on the net writes that he was sick of a video where a plump girl is gorgeous in dancing strides or someone has acted with unshaven armpits. I do not want to get involved in these squabbles.
My body should run, climb trees, dance, it should chop wood and give me pleasure. It must be protected. But I recognize the right of others to live in the society in which they are accustomed.
“Nudism is like a shocking, I do not understand”
Dina, 27 years old, administrator
Russian naturists in the photo project of Kati Deriglazova people, beach, often, nudist, nudity, body, because nudism, girls, wanted, very, very, only, girl, Russia, to

- In my youth I was afraid of everything related to the body. I looked like a boy and lived exclusively "from the head." I was changed by the man I loved: he perceived sex and any bodily practices as art.
Then I started practicing yoga and plastic theater, I loved my body and its possibilities, I started to dress according to gender.
For me, exposure to the camera is a way to open up to the world, to trust people more. Nudism as shocking I do not understand.
It seems to me that people who avoid their bodies are moralizers and are full of complexes. I don’t mind children seeing naked bodies. Let them know that all people are different, that everyone is beautiful in his own way. Then in adolescence they will have fewer problems with their appearance.
"The body is the support of the soul"
Alya, 31, guide
Russian naturists in the photo project of Kati Deriglazova people, beach, often, nudist, nudity, body, because nudism, girls, wanted, very, very, only, girl, Russia, to

- I do not invest in walking naked some special meaning and value. Just sometimes it is more convenient.
I have a friendly relationship with the body, we understand each other well. I have not got used to how the body has changed after giving birth, but these are trifles. On the one hand, "which kilograms in FIG - is not sick, and thank God."On the other hand, the attitude towards him has become more respectful and even reverent.
Body and soul are inseparable, the body is the support of the soul. Christians believe that the dead will be resurrected bodily.
I will not purposefully raise my son with a nudist, but I will cultivate in him a calm attitude towards nudity.
The appearance of the naked body does not cause me sexual urges - perhaps because I did not visual. Smell, touch, voice is another matter.
“Nudity is sexy only if you put such meaning into it”
Sergey, 19 years old, student
Russian naturists in the photo project of Kati Deriglazova people, beach, often, nudist, nudity, body, because nudism, girls, wanted, very, very, only, girl, Russia, to

- I consider myself a naturist, not a nudist. I appreciate the unity with nature, I care about the world around us. I enjoy not my outcrop, but body contact with air, grass, sand, water, and pebbles.
After the first experiments of exposure to nature, I began to look at the world differently: pick up debris from the tracks, curse with those who throw it, look at the pipes of factories and cars with disdain, touch people more often, try something tactilely new on the skin. Due to the fact that the naked body became natural for me, I began to fall in love with the thoughts and feelings of the girls, and not with their figures and faces with makeup. I realized that nudity becomes sexual only if you put such meaning into it.
I do not impose my opinion on anyone that being naked is normal.However, I often enter into discussions on this topic, trying to understand why some are against.
