The White House Club

frequently asked questions

We understand that the White House is a family naturist club but should I be worried about bringing my children?
The White House has been catering for families with children for many years and the safety of children is constantly monitored with an appointed trained Child Protection officer working within the official Child Protection Policy guide lines. Many of our members have grown up in the White House and introduced their children and grandchildren.

Will the children be shocked during their first visit to the White House?
Not at all: children take to it like a fish to water.

Are we expected to be naked at all times?
No, when conditions are too cold it is sensible to wear clothes.

Won't some men get visibly turned on ? 
No, naturism is not sexually stimulating. However surprising this sounds initially, you'll quickly discover it is true.

I feel insecure about my body - am I attractive enough to take off my clothes ?
People come in all shapes,sizes and colours, naturists accept everyone just as they are. The naturist experience counteracts the 'perfect body' culture often portrayed in the media. Women in particular find that naturism gives them body confidence.

Will my friends and colleagues at work find out that I am a naturist?
Not unless you tell them, no. We respect everyone's confidentially. No cameras are allowed in the grounds, and phone cameras cannot be used.

What if I meet someone I know at the club?
This doesn’t happen often and has never been a problem – after all, you share the same interests and members do not talk about members to non members.

What sort of people are members of the White House?
Generally a cross-section of the community just like your neighbours – although they are perhaps more independent minded.

Is The White House affiliated to a national body?
Yes, the White House is a member of British Naturism.

How is the White House itself run?
The club is a not-for-profit private limited company, owned by the members, governed by an elected committee from within the membership with a properly constituted AGM each year.

Do we have to be members to enjoy the facilities of the White House?
Yes and we have various membership arrangements for local, distant and overseas members.

Can we bring friends to the WhiteHouse?
Yes we encourage members to bring friends and family to the the WhiteHouse. They often end up joining.

Do visitors have to get naked immediately?
No. We are very relaxed and encourage visitors and new members to take their time to become nude. In summer, you will attract less attention nude than being clothed.

Are we supposed to get involved with the activities and sports as soon as we join?
No. Take time to chill out. Do what suits you.

Do women come by themselves?
Women come alone to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the WhiteHouse. You can decide to be sociable or solitary and no one will disturb you.
