Tanya Ong December 12,AM. The nudist or naturist community in Singapore is a small, mostly underground one, comprising people of various ages, like year-old Ming and year-old Chantal not their real names. Speaking to Mothership, they tell us more about the nudist lifestyle and what their experiences have been like. Living in Singapore where attitudes towards nudism have remained conservative, they also share their fears in letting people know Singapore naked couples this side of them.

Prior to the meeting, I had no idea what these two people look like, nor how old they are. The only information I had? They are a man and a woman.
At the cafe we arranged to meet up, a middle-aged man approaches me after I send him a message saying I'm wearing a green blouse. He introduces himself, Ming, and tells me he has gotten a table at the far end. The woman, who is 30, is already seated there with a warm beverage. She introduces herself as Chantal which isn't her real name, she tells me.
Chantal is currently a teacher specialising in naked yoga after leaving her corporate job earlier this year. On top of teaching, she also has side gigs doing nude photoshoots. To my surprise, I learn that this meeting is the first time that these two individuals are meeting in person — both of them are in the same WhatsApp chat group comprising others in the local naturist community, but have never met up. Ming said the group started from a naturist retreat he had gone for, and others, Chantal included, were subsequently added to it.
One of Chantal's students happened to attend the same retreat Ming had gone for. In our chat, they also seemed pretty reluctant to let me know specific details such as their real names and occupations and to be fair, I didn't push them to give me details either. But that is perhaps to be expected, since they expressed discomfort at their friends and family finding out about — and judging — their nudist lifestyle. Ming: In I saw something on the internet that place had opened up in Bangkok. So I was curious. I tried it out, found it liberating, and I liked it.

Chantal: Some of my trusted friends know. Before, when I had my corporate job, everything had to be really hush-hush. The question is if my family finds out. What are you worried that your family might think? Like how everybody might think? Yeah, I imagine people may hold some stereotypes about nudism. What are some misconceptions that you commonly hear? People ask me, "When you go to those gatherings, do people grab you? People are very chill, very down-to-earth. Ming: For us, we meet a lot more new people.
So if you wanna hug people… Consent lah. Must ask. What about your partners? Do they know about it and do you expect them to be accepting of this lifestyle? How did you first tell her about it?
