SCL and SCN

 

Are  there any current members of SCL ? I've sent through application etc. + status of application a number of times the last couple of months with no reply - 

do we know whats happening with the site.?

 

I was SOOOOO impressed with SCN and was saddened when it closed down.  Does anyone know whats happening with the site and whether anyone knows of a similar site.

 

Regards

Keith

Is this a good topic?:

From what I remember, "SCN"

From what I remember, "SCN" stood for smooth and cut naturists, and was a "club" for people who felt it good for men to have shaved bodies and be circumcised.  I see that a website still exists.  I qualified on one criterion, but not the other!

"SCL" - I don't know about this one, I can only surmise.

It appears that the SCL

It appears that the SCL website is being updated. The Calendar and events tabs do not offer anything. So, not sure how long the update has been going on.

I cannot find reference to what SCL stands for on their site.

I'm wondering what SCL means too.

Perhaps it is Sprayed Concrete Lining? Stress Check List? Smiles Change Lives?

Smile

 

edit. It actually stands for Smoothie Club Leisure. The website is dormant.

Like Shaver77 I too think it

Like Shaver77 I too think it is a great pity that SCN was shut down. I am keen on getting in touch with any past members especially any women or anyone who attended their meetings. I have heard that remnants of SCN continue to meet in Wirral or thereabouts. Does anyone have any information about this?

Fellad that is really encouraging news. I am so glad that this aspect of nudism continues to draw some people and really hope it can grow.

I was most interested in the

I was most interested in the club smooth and cut but due to being not circumcised could not join being totally smooth is just amazing but did not want to be cut . How many nudists pull back their skin aspect a lot do .

I don't get this at all, why

I don't get this at all, why have a smoothie circumcised club? I thought one of the strengths of naturism was people involved tended to be very accepting of the differences in people's appearance, more open and actually far less divided by appearances. Yet this thread is suggesting the opposite, where if you don't shave your pubes you're an outsider of the club. For me I don't care if a fellow naturist has a beard, hairy torso, hairy armpits or indeed a hairy genital area. As with all looks, for me some look better to me than than others but others will prefer a different look, but whether I think it looks attractive or not would not make me want to set up a separate club of just people who conform to my preferred look.
I just find it strange, and hopefully I'll continue to socialise with naked people regardless of their state of hirsute-ness and they will me.
Or...am I naive and missing something...where being smooth is a sign of some other intention such as being available for sex? I must admit on chat I quite often get people saying 'hi, smoothie from Derby (or wherever here)'...guess I could be missing the point on that one.

I disagree, there are so many

I disagree, there are so many reasons for enjoying the sight and feel of the human body that it is inevitable that sub-groups will form.

It's obsessive behaviour that has to be avoided.

Can't see what all the fuss

Can't see what all the fuss is about cut or not, with the skinback they all look the same.

I'm neither thankfully... I

I'm neither thankfully... I have no desire to be smooth, I honestly can't see what the obsession is that the smoothies keep whittling on about... I'm totally smooth, it feels so clean and fresh (for some reason it seems us nudists with pubes don't feel clean and fresh because we have hair 'down there'... I've news for you... we DO) ...I like the feel etc... blah blah whittle blah blah blah. What does it matter if you look like Yul Brinner or have pubes like Diana Ross' afro... I personally don't care but some people seem utterly obsessed with the subject.

As for being cut?... big deal, some are, some aren't, end of... the subject being brought up just seems another reason for an excuse to chat about someone's genitals (yet again)... is this what naturism is really about? We all have them... whoopee!

Well said Martin. I shave

Well said Martin. I shave and am cut as well, but what the hell does it matter. We all treat our bodies in the way that we want them (although I did not request the cut) but beyond that I see no reason for clubs etc. Let us be as we want to be and bugger the rest.

I don't happen to be 'cut'.

I don't happen to be 'cut'. However, one of the biggest ever regrets of my life was shaving myself when I was about 14. It felt excellent when I had just finnished. THEN, it itched like there was no tomorrow. I regretted it almost immediately. I have since never been there with a razor. I did try to trim it with clippers once, but now it's like the Amazon basin down there. I daren't go there with cutting equipment. I seriously wish I'd left well enough alone, but I cannot go back in time (yet), so for me I am uncut, and also unshaved. Maybe things will change, but that's about it for 'right now'. Best wishes all. :)

Each to their own preferences

Each to their own preferences. No judgement is being made about those that do not qualify. Its a means for like minded people to unite together and not anything against the views of others.

Have always been of the

Have always been of the opinion I like being a smooth nudist but have always said it’s a nudist or naturist choice to be with hair or not . Just as there are nudists who like to be with smooth nudists have seen bear groups how perfer being hairy with other bear naturist s. We are what we are but I still expect friendship between bears and smoothness it’s good to be naked yes

It's not easy being green so

It's not easy being green so I'm starting a green socks movement because when I do have to dress, I like the colours of Spring. In the depths of Winter, green socks on myself or others cheer me up and I do it because I can! I wasn't allowed to wear them when I was young because I was told they were unlucky and "wrong", my father also raising an eyebrow at someone who drove a green car. "They're asking for trouble," he said. But now I'm an adult I can make my own choices. Green for me.

I joined SCN about 20 years

I joined SCN about 20 years ago. I had been divorced for a couple of years and started to relax nude around the house when I saw an advert for SCN in Starkers naturist magazine. Although cut from birth I had never been smooth before but after meeting John (who ran the group) I decided to go smooth and found it very exhilarating. I made lots of naturist friends through SCN attending socials and week ends away, all organised by john. He dis-banded the group some years ago due to other commitments but continued to keep the web site going which in my opinion was a great source of information for experienced and new naturists. It is sad that the website no longer exists.
Although the club was for smooth and cut naturists, non cut and non smooth were encouraged to comment and take part, in fact, I attended several meetings where non cut and non smooth were in attendance where the pros and cons were discussed about both life styles. It wasn't a closed shop, just a different way of enjoying naturism. SCN was my doorway to public naturism and I will be forever grateful to John for that.

Out of interest George

Out of interest George (genuine interest here, it's not a loaded question), in what way was it 'different way of enjoying naturism'?

Just saying that each to

Just saying that each to their own. I am happy to meet all naturists, irrespective of gender, race, hairy, smooth, cut or uncut. Just enjoy being a naturist, but if one feels more comfortable within a particular group so be it. I love being a naturist and happy to share naturist times will all.

Exactly George... that's what

Exactly George... that's what naturism is all about, you've hit the nail on the head there... not preaching that you're smooth, cut etc. People have got eyes, people don't need to state the obvious.

Everyone should be comfortable with who anyone is regardless of what anyone looks like. Well apart from if a guy had 3 penis'... now that would be a tad freaky. lol
