AANR-Southwest is one of seven regional affiliates of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR), the largest nudist organization
in North America.
AANR-SW includes approximately 2,000 nudists and over 20 resorts and clubs in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Also included in the Southwest Region is a Bed & Breakfast and a unique travel agency which arranges
annual nude cruises on major cruise lines.
Social nudism is a family-oriented activity, weekend recreation for some, a lifestyle for others. It’s not uncommon for two, three, or even four generations of family members to enjoy nude recreation together.
AANR-SW nudists are very active. Each club sponsors regular events, including such things as nude chili cookoffs, volleyball competitions, theme parties, etc. Each club celebrates
special occasions like Memorial Day, Independence Day, Nude Recreation Week, Labor day, Halloween, etc. Of course, some will tell you that every day is special when it's spent au naturel.
AANR-SW sponsors an annual Nude Racing Series of 5K runs at several resorts around the region. These races
attract serious runners, as well as those who just want an excuse to jog nude through some spectacular terrain. These races have become very popular; many find running nude to be quite exhilarating!
AANR-SW also values the kids and young adults of the region and encourages them to become active participants in the region.
The purpose of AANR-SW is to protect, publicize and promote the practice of social nudism in a wholesome, family environment, at resorts and clubs chartered
by American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and at such places where social nudism is legal under all city, state and federal laws.
To promote family nudism through education, and give service and advice to newly formed social clubs and groups and others who are planning to start such a club, to give assistance to affliated parks and other
such places legalized to practice nudism.
