On Going Naked (1932) is a book on nudism by Jan Gay.

While in Europe, Gay became interested in the practice of nudism and wrote the book about her experiences there. The book included photographs of nude people that Gay took during her time there, as well as illustrations by Zhenya. It later served as the basis for a documentary titled This Nude World which Gay wrote the script for. According to Gay, "human bodies are phenomena no more spectacular than trees." Gay opened a nudist resort, the Out-of-Doors Club, in Highland, New York and was therefore credited by Buffalo Evening News as "the leader of nudism in New York".
