I've been chewing the intellectual fat on this for some days now. RatherBSsailin, you have summed it up nicely. A nudist is, probably, someone who wants to be naked but, & this is how it works for me, a naturist wants be naked & in connection with God's creation which is, I think, the better option. So, I may be a nudist at home when I can't get out but what I want is to be naked in nature; at heart I am a naturist.

I like being nude when I can be, comfortably, with it being natural. I would be in nature as much as I could be, that natural. Any unnecessary covering is not natural. I am still a nudist, with seeing it as natural. Definitions to distinguish the words are artificial and contrived. There is overlap in any case, most of either term are indistinguishable, and I am sure there are hardly any seeking to be in nature and a part of it as I am, while I still confess I am a nudist, so they aren't more natural or more connected with nature than I am.

Hard to say "nakurist". Me, I would rather let others talk it through and get my kit off.

I'm a nudist, because I like being nude when I can. But nudist as a term has no qualifications to go with it, unless one would add other words as qualifiers.

I'm a naturist, because I have a natural philosophy about life which includes going nude. Because I believe in restoring God's original plan of life that he placed our first grandparents in. The whole thing; the diet, the nude gardening, the friendly animals, swimming in the rivers, and observing the original day of rest.

I prefer naturist because it has the hint of a qualifying element, giving the impression of something aimed at harmony with nature. Whereas the term nudist could mean a regular practice of nudity for any reason, not necessarily nature inclined or moral.
