Textile is the predominant term used in the UK ('textilist' is unknown in British naturist magazines including H&E naturist), although some naturists avoid it due to perceived negative or derogatory connotations.
Nudism is the act of being naked, while naturism is a lifestyle which at various times embraced nature, environment, respect for others, self-respect, crafts, healthy eating, vegetarianism, teetotalism, non-smoking, yoga, physical exercise and pacifism as well as nudity.
In naturist parlance, textile or textilist is a non-naturist person, non-naturist behaviour or non-naturist facilities. the textile beach starts at the flag, they are a mixed couple – he is naturist, she is textile.
An overlapping term to naturist with a similar definition includes birthday suiter.
Many contemporary naturists and naturist organisations feel that the practice of social nudity should be asexual.
