Interest in Nude Recreation Skewing Younger According to Newly-Released National Travel Study

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 10, 2006 -- Significant differences have emerged related to the demographics of adult Americans who are interested in nude recreation experiences, according to the Yesawich, Pepperdine, Brown & Russell/Yankelovich Partners 2006 National Leisure Travel Monitor.

The results of the survey suggest that the demographics, both age and ethnicity, of nude recreation will continue to diversify and change the face of nude recreation. According to this barometer of travel preferences, younger adults are expressing interest in nude recreation. Another statistically significant difference is the percentage of non-white and African Americans that consider a nude recreation experience desirable versus that of whites.

Specifically related to nude recreation, the survey revealed:

-- 15% of adults consider a resort that offers a nude recreation
   experience extremely desirable;
-- Significant differences stand out with Echo-Boomers and Xers interest
   in nude recreation overtaking that of the Boomers and Matures. The
   percentage of adults who consider a nude recreation experience
   extremely/very desirable include:
   -- 23% of Echo-Boomers (born since 1979)
   -- 18% of Xers (born from 1965 through 1978)
   -- 15% of Boomers (born from 1946 through 1964)
   -- 12% of Matures (born before 1946)
-- Non-whites (28%) and African Americans (30%) find nude recreation
   experiences more desirable than their white counterparts (13%).
The survey also named California, Florida, Hawaii, Arizona and Colorado as the top five states US adults say they would like to visit most during the next two years which is good news for the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). With 267 member clubs and resorts throughout the United States a number of resorts are located in each of these states.
