I was on a nude sailing cruise

nudists-masturbatingI was on a nude sailing cruise in the British Virgin Islands 6-7 years ago and we were anchored in White Bay. It was after dinner, we’d had a bottle of wine or four, and decided we wanted to go to the bar ashore for a drink – but of course we didn’t want to get dressed. Somehow we didn’t see this as a problem. Into the dighy we climbed, motored off to the bar (not the Soggy Dollar, the other one) and in we walked. There were only half a dozen people there, but not surprisingly our entrance was noticed. One young man let out a whoop when we walked in, and he quickly got naked (though his girlfriend made him get dressed again – I’ve often thought that I hoped he dumped her). We sat down as normally as possible at one of the tables, continuing our conversation, and in a moment the waitress came along. She was very flustered, garbled a few incoherent monosylables, and then left, having forgotten to take our drink orders.

We spent almost two hours in the bar and had a grand time. Eventually most of the other patrons left, the bartender got naked, and even the waitress took off her top. She and our hostess then compared breast jobs and discovered they’d had the same plastic surgeon in Atlanta. It was certainly a memorable night!

But the part I really have yet to figure out is how – or whether – we paid for our drinks. We went without clothes, therefore without pockets, therefore without wallets, therefore without money. So I guess the best part of the evening was that it was not only clothes-free, it was also drinks-for-free.

we also go around naked

nudist-teen-linksMy wife and I and 6 other couples that are good friends have been going to the Burningman Festival in the Black Rock Desert of Northern Nevada since 1997.

It’s not billed as clothing optional but it is…nudity is as accepted as it is expected. The crowd this year will be about 50,000 people and during the day around 20% will be nude and around 60% will be at least partly naked. The percentage of naked people is higher in the early mornings before people get into their costumes. Naked people are completely accepted and, really, not even noticed much because the costumes that so many people wear are so creative and extraordinary as is the giant artwork and fire-art which is what the event is all about.

The event is not for everyone. You camp in a very harsh desert for a week and everything you need to eat, drink and stay healthy and comfortable must be brought in by you…nothing except ice and coffee is for sale on the desert. The people who manage the event require first-timers to read their “Survival Guide” so that no one shows up unprepared for the conditions.

The people in our group bring some amazing costumes, as do most attendees, but we also go around naked when we’re just viewing the artwork. Burningman is probably THE largest mix of clothed and naked people in the world during the week it runs. (From 1 week prior to Labor Day to Labor Day.) We can honestly say that we’ve never had, seen or even heard of any negative comments or reactions to the nudity from the textiles at the event.

I took my clothes off. Once naked

nudist-videoclipSeveral years ago I was reading through the little newspaper that our city puts out to advertise community events. I noticed that our local art center offered a “non-instructed life drawing class” in which artists could show up with their preferred sketching media, pay a fee, and be provided with a nude model for three hours. I wondered what it would be like to be that model, so I rode my bicycle down there to apply. They hired me on the spot and asked me to cover the class for the following Saturday.

It is typical of me to leap before I look, and so on the way home I began to realize that I had no idea what an art model does, since I had never been to such a class. I’m not exactly a graceful girl. I never took ballet or gymnastics in school. I ride horses and go camping and backpacking. So when I got home I made some phone calls and located a college art instructor who gave me some tips over the phone. That Saturday I showed up to find about 15 adults milling about drinking Starbucks. After the initial introductions, I stepped up on the little stage and disrobed to began my first ever poses. The funny thing is that I was extremely nervous all morning until I took my clothes off. Once naked, I felt relaxed and comfortable and could feel myself taking charge of things. It was wonderful!

A few days later the college art instructor called me back to see how things had gone. I told her I had loved it and that several of the artists had commented that I was the “best” model they had ever seen. She said, “Great! So come work for me. I’ll see you next Wednesday.” After that my phone was practically ringing off the hook from other instructors with job offers. I wound up modeling all around town for a little over two years until I “retired” from it to devout my time to a new horse with discipline problems that demanded a great deal of attention.

All-in-all it was a great time in my life that left me with many fun stories to tell when I am a little old lady at the retirement home.

A couple of years ago on a hot July day I decided to skip a day off work and go as a day visitor to a nudist club near to where I was working

nudists-picturesA couple of years ago on a hot July day I decided to skip a day off work and go as a day visitor to a nudist club near to where I was working.

I had signed in and was just getting my day bag out of the car when a young lady pulled up and asked me if this was the Croft club. I told her she was right and directed her to where she had to go and register. I went in to the club and settled myself down to enjoy the day. Not long after this young lady walked past and we began to chat. Shortening the story a little she brought her towel etc and sat beside me. We had a great time chatting away on all things nudist with more than one break to enjoy the lovely pool for a cool down.

Late into the afternoon or maybe early evening I decided that I was going to pack up and head for home. I said that I was planning to leave but within half an hour I would be walking naked through the forest. It had become a regular thing with me that on my way home from work or the gym I would stop off at this forest and take a walk in the nude. I always kept a pair of shorts wit me to cover up if I met anybody which I had done more than once. On hearing that I would be taking a forest walk nude she said that she would love to join me but she was not planning to leave till late evening when the heat had subsided as she did not have a/c in her car. I told her that if she rearly wanted to have a nude forest walk I would drive her there and back in my car that has a/c. At this she accepted, picked up her handbag and a very small sarong and walked to the exit.
We both got into the car nude and drove for about 40 minutes to the forest passing through a small town, stopping at traffic lights the works. Nobody noticed we were both nude. At the forest we parked up near another car, not in the normal car park. We got out of the car and walked off up this track into the forest. She had her little sarong and I had my shorts for cover should we need it. We walked for at least half an hour and just as we were making our way back towards the car we spotted a chap. He had definatly seen that we were nude so I said that there was not point in hiding or for that matter covering up so we didn’t. We chatted to the chap for a few minutes and he walked back with us to where we and he had parked our cars.
There was a third car parked with us and while we were chatting standing by our cars we spotted a couple at the top of the track heading our way. Must be the couple from the third car. We continued chatting to this chap Kath, the lady, and I nude the chap still dressed when out of the corner of my eye I spotted that this other couple were much closer and that they were both nude. When they got up to us they told us that they had been in the forest nude sunbathing most of the afternoon and when they spotted us both nude decided to continue there nude time.
We then made our good byes and got into the car still nude for the return journey to the club. The other couple decided to drive home nude as well.
So all in all I drove for over two hours nude that day. It was fantastic.

I had an experience today that was new for me

31798815I had an experience today that was new for me. I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them?….

I had finished my workout, showered, disposed of my towel in a near by bind, and was walking back to my locker (nude, of course) to get dressed. As I turned the corner from the showers toward the lockers, a woman was standing in the walk way with a bathing suit and towel in her hand. “What are you doing in here!?” she asked. “I was about to ask you the same question” I responded. Both of us being shocked by seeing the other, I said, “This is the male locker room.” She responded, “Oh, my god, I am so sorry….I’m in the wrong place!” “Please forgive my intrusion” she continued, as she followed me to my locker. As i was trying to get my locker opened, she continued to talk to me about the facility we were in. This went on for a good two minutes before another guy walked in and, took a look, and retreated behind some other lockers. Finally, she said, “I apologize…it was good talking to you”…and left.

Now, while I was surprised to see her (and she me), I remained calm and nude (since I had nothing to cover with)
in our conversation. She apparently somewhat enjoyed this situation, since she did not immediately run to the door.
Looking back on this, I am somewhat surprised by her action. If this had happened in her locker room, I’m sure that I would have been thrown out or arrested!

Being nude on the beach is the sexiest thing ever

nudists-videoHI, my name is Jennifer and I would like to tell you about how I discovered one of the most amazing things ever. This is how I discovered that nude beaches are just incredibly sexy and that it is the most teasing experience that you can possibly have, if you are a girl that is. It all started about three years ago when two of my girlfriends and I took our first vacation together. We were still in college and we decided to treat ourselves to something really special, so we booked a flight to the French Riviera, decided to spend some good times there until the money lasts. One of my friends, Beth, she even knew a bit of French, so we were okay.
Our hotel was almost on the beach and we spend most of the day on that beach for the first few days. We were having the time of our lives, sunbathing, having fun in the water and going out in the evenings. And then, one day, two guys that we met last night on town approached us and we started talking again. They were these insanely cute local guys, with perfect bodies, charming as hell and did I say they were cute? We were talking for hours on the beach and then we asked them if it’s true that there are beaches for nudists in the area because we heard something about it in the first few days. They said that it was true and that they sometimes go there. And then, for some reason, god knows what it was, we asked them if they could take us. They told us that they would meet us tomorrow on ‘our’ beach with their boat because you couldn’t get there by land.
Tomorrow, the three of us were waiting for the guys, all three still in our bikinis. We weren’t risking it or anything. They picked us up when we agreed and they brought another friend of theirs, equally cute if not even cuter. They were also in shorts. We took a boat ride of perhaps 15 minutes. As it turned out this nudist beach was just around the corner. We couldn’t believe our eyes how beautiful it was. It was a bit secluded, with no more than twenty people there. Just the prettiest little beach you could imagine. As we were getting closer, I saw that everyone on the beach was fully nude. There were a few couples, a few families and so on.
When we got off the boat, the guys stripped immediately like it was nothing. We couldn’t believe it. It was like they didn’t mind at all that they were naked. And to tell you the truth, we didn’t at all. This was enough to rank among our best days ever, cute French guys naked like the day they were born. We, however, were not that ready to get naked at once. My friends took of their tops and after a while, we said what the hell and took it all off. We could see that the guys were trying really hard to stay cool, but you could feel that they got 10 times as interested.
The funny thing is that we kept on talking as if everything was the same as it was on ‘our beach’, but you could feel the sex hanging in the air. No one was talking about it and it made everything even hotter. I could feel the blood inside me boiling and I knew that everyone felt the same way. It was obvious that everyone wanted the same thing, but we all agreed, without saying anything, to keep it bottled inside. At a few moments, I felt like I was going to have the biggest orgasm ever without any touches or anything. It was just incredible. And the feel of the sun and the water on my naked body… When I think about it now I feel all funny, let alone then.
It was the sexiest day I have ever had, and there was no sex involved. Only being at the beach nude can do that.

We treat nudity, and sexuality

nudist-video-clipsIt reminds me of what I read in one of Frank Herbert’s Dune books once. I love google, it found it for me. Here it is:
There was this drylander who was asked which was more important, a literjon of water or a vast pool of water? The drylander thought a moment and then said: “The literjon is more important. No single person could own a great pool of water. But a literjon you could hide under your cloak and run away with it. No one would know.”
-The Jokes of Ancient Dune,
Bene Gesserit Archives

We treat nudity, and sexuality, as things that are so precious, we literally have to hide it from others as we fear that, exposed, everyone would try to get it. In a land where it is everywhere, however, there is no need for such fear. In a way, many western cultures are already like this in relation to many arab cultures, such as Saudi Arabia. There, they fear seeing anything but the slits of the eyes of women for fear that a man would be tempted by one. Here we are apalled at this idea that people would think that men should be so weak, but we don’t live in Saudi Arabia; there, apparently, they are; and it’s engrained into them in their culture. We just have the same idea only more moderate; here it’s fine to see not just a woman’s face, but her hair as well, and more besides, but most tend to draw the line at some point of skimpy clothing in public. Nudists, ofcourse, go beyond even this, although generally only in certain settings (at the very least nudists tend to avoid being nude where it’s not legal to do so).

I would argue that the issue of sexuality is fairly similar, with the one caveat that children and pregnancy, STDs and STIs are also factors there. In any case, my point stands; I think that with enough dialogue people will realize that the advantages to being more liberal, both clothing wise and sexuality wise, while at the same time educating ourselves more so that we avoid the mistakes that makes of some such puritans, will be better for everyone.

my first visit to a clothing optional resort

nudist-videoHello to all, this is my first post on this forum and it comes after my first visit to a clothing optional resort.
My first naked outside experience occurred when I was probably 10. My cousins dared me to run around our grandmother’s house naked. I took the dare and loved it. I have looked for chances to be naked outside ever since. However, being raised in a conservative family and now married to a wonderful woman who was also raised conservatively I haven’t had many opportunities.
I am naked around the house as much as possible, but that is becoming limited these days as our daughter is getting older and our conservative upbringing and ideas of modesty are causing me to be clothed more around her. The cover up was causing me to go a little crazy though, I needed to be naked somewhere. I was doing stupid things, going naked in places that if I was caught I could get in trouble.
All that said, the wife and kids were out of town this weekend, so I took the opportunity to go to a clothing optional resort nearby and try it out for a little while.
I had two main concerns going in, one of which had been eased by reading other posts on this forum. I was afraid of getting an erection. Didn’t happen, not even close. My other concern, and guys you’ll appreciate this, was that after swimming, exercise, or just being nervous my penis and testicles shrivel up and I feel like I look like a five year old. I was afraid that the anxiousness associated with my first experience being nude publicly would cause this to occur and I would be self concious about perceived size. A quick check of the situation about five minutes before I arrived confirmed that fear. I was anxious and so were the boys. However, after a quick tour with the owner and checking in for the day I was feeling pretty relaxed. Less worried about a first experience and more pleased with the opportunity to do something that I knew I wanted to do. Without nervousness or hesitation I parked the car and used it as my locker. With people walking around both clothed and nude and stripped off right there and headed for the pool. And I am happy to report the boys were hanging loose, so fear number two turned out to be a non factor.
As for the visit itself, it was so so. I went alone, and while the people were friendly and said hello, most kept to themselves. There wasn’t much going on at the time. There were probably 30 to 40 people around the pool and that was it. No one was in the lodge or hot tub, so the pool and lounge deck where the only choices for socializing.
All in all is was a good experience. Like most who post about their first time, my nervousness was gone very quickly. Now I just need to convince my wife that it is a good idea for her to try it.

I never told my wife

74257738Duecer, teenage boys get spontaneous erections very often and anywhere they happen to be. Showing up nude in public where there also happens to be warm water, a nice breeze, and naked females romping about is going to make your son’s arousal significantly more likely. I recommend that you refrain from insisting to your wife that erections don’t occur at nudist venues, particularly among teenagers, because that statement is way off the mark.

You commented that you didn’t mention anything to your wife about your son’s erection in the water (“I never told my wife.”) The boy is very likely able to sense your need for secrecy in this matter and that fact alone will make him uneasy about it, or even ashamed.

The next time he gets an erection in your presence, be casual about it. Tell him it’s part of life, there’s nothing wrong with having one, he’s a totally normal boy and there is no need to be embarassed. But do emphasize the need to behave appropriately if (when) it happens around others, by not waving it around like a big flag and to just ignore it if he can’t readily hide it. Not bringing others’ attention to it is the best course of action. If someone does notice, he should stay cool as if nothing is going on.

And as one poster already suggested, make sure your daughter does not make fun of him if (when) she sees him with an erection. Thirteen year old boys can be very sensitive about those comments.

I also advise having a talk with “the wife” and admit the information you gave her is not entirely correct. She will almost surely spot your son with an erection one day at the resort. She needs to know he’s having them, and providing correct information on the topic will lessen her shock and embarassment. If your wife knows how likely and normal erections are for a young teenage boy, she can take it in stride when it does occur and not make your son feel bad about an uncontrollable body function.

Social Issues in Regards to Voyeur Nudity

Social Issues in Regards to  Voyeur Nudity

nudists-walks-videosNudity Shame (voyeur nudity)

Centuries of oppressive thought have convinced many people that the body is a shameful, worthless object that should be hidden. Nonsense! The human body is one of the most elegant, masterful and valuable things on earth. There are few things in existence which compare to it on an artistic, technical, or philosophical level. Celebrate the human body! It’s one of only a handful of truly unique creations.

Embarrassment (voyeur nudity)

Some people are afraid of running into someone they know while nude, or – worse – being seen by someone they know (or someone they don’t) while nude. Remember that you will be around many other people who will also be nude. You may be momentarily embarrassed at first – this is normal – but as you spend more time nude, you will realize that if everyone is nude, no one has cause for nudity-related embarrassment. As for the possibility that you’ll run into someone you know – well, if you like them, you’ve got something new in common to talk about? Besides, what is there to be embarrassed about? They are there, too, for the same reasons as you.
Defining Voyeurism :: Human sexual behavior involving achievement of sexual arousal through viewing the sexual activities of others or through watching others disrobe. To some extent voyeurism is widespread; various types of sexual display are a normal part of sexual attraction and mating behavior in most animals, including humans, but voyeurism is considered a deviant behavior when observation ceases to be merely one factor in sexual attraction and becomes the sole or primary source of gratification. The risk of being caught is an additional element in the excitement of the voyeur.

15 Top Reasons to Be Naked
1. It’s fun! Of course, it’s not for everyone, but then, neither is Madonna nor the Red Hot Chili Peppers, NBA basketball nor Batman. But once most young couples and boyfriends/girlfriends try it, they come back. Why? Because it’s fun. You probably know people who have vacationed at nude beaches, who skinny-dip in their backyard pool or who lounge around the house nude. Why not?

2. It’s healthy! Besides improved self-esteem, the sun relieves stress, provides you with Vitamin D, a tan with SPF 4 protection and helps clear acne. Naturists don’t overdo their time in the sun; they tan safely with a sunscreen.
Five Step Nudity
If you’ve just been waiting for encouragement to get naked from a mainstream source, especially if you are female, now you have it.  Here are the 5 steps to a more naked you:

1. Expose yourself. Get comfortable being nude alone.

2. Get to know your body. Pay attention to your body’s sensory signals, especially when unclothed.

3. Look at yourself. Become familiar with – and accepting of how you look without clothes.

4. Move on to semi public nudity. In commonly acceptable circumstances, such as a locker room.

5. Graduate to social nudity. The real thing.

The feature, of course, is about body acceptance. The message has been repeated often enough, that people (women especially) are needlessly unhappy due to fears their bodies are somehow not “right”. But this time the way to overcome the problem is stated very clearly.

Our first ‘planned’ nude outing with friends happened this weekend.

Earlier in the week a cookout at our house had turned into an impromptu nude swim session in our pool. We discovered while not ‘social nudists’ per se that we all spent a lot of time that way around home.

My first nudist experience came when I was 17

nudists-videoMy first nudist experience came when I was 17 (I’m 24 now for reference). I made friends with a girl in high school that year named Veronica, and I later came to find out that she and her mother were both nudists.
A few weeks after that, I was invited to dinner at Veronica’s house with her and her mother. Veronica’s mother wasn’t home when we got there so she invited me to go swimming with her in their pool. Veronica of course stripped down naked and dove in, but I was a bit more apprehensive. I hadn’t been raised with the same kind of acceptance towards nudity that she had, and as a result I was a bit uncomfortable being naked in front of anyone, not to mention I was very embarrassed about the size of my, well…you know.
Anyway, I elected to go swimming in my tightey-whiteys since I didn’t have my swimsuit on me, and we had a great time in the water together. At some point my underwear slipped off in the water and I didn’t even realize it. After getting out of the water, I heard Veronica giggle and she said to me that I looked good naked. Of course I immediately turned red and covered myself up, but after she pointed out that she had already seen me naked and there wasn’t much use trying to hide it anymore, I relented, and despite my previous worries jumped back into the pool naked.
Much to my surprise I loved how much fun and free swimming naked was, and telling this to Veronica she responded by saying that’s how she felt everyday and that’s why she loved being a nudist so much. Not long after that Veronica’s mother returned home and was very surprised to see me naked, to which I joked that her daughter had converted me. I decided to stay nude for the rest of the day, had dinner with them naked, and that experience ultimately opened my eyes to what a wonderful lifestyle nudism is.
Once I went to college and moved out on my own, along with a lot of encouragement from Veronica, I decided to become a nudist full time like her and I’ve been one ever since. Veronica and I also started dating that year and we’re still together.

Jess has asked me to write about nudism

nudist-storiesHi, my name’s Kat and I’m Jess’s sister. I’m 13 and Jess has asked me to write about nudism and going nude for this website.
I didn’t ever think about going round naked, but I did start to notice last autumn when Jess seemed to not always have all her clothes on all the time! I saw her walking round the house in her undies and also a couple of times going into her room with nothing on after shed had a shower. It didn’t mean anything to me at all what she was doing, but it didn’t bother me.
One day I was in my room and Jess knocked on the door. She came in to the room and she was naked! It didn’t really bother me that she didn’t have any clothes on, but I was still a bit surprised! She told me that she was naked because she was a nudist, which she told me was a person who enjoys being nude (I didn’t know). She said she’d spoken to mum and mum had said it was okay if she was naked at home sometimes, but she wanted to make sure I was alright with it too. It didn’t bother me if she was going to be going round in the nude all the time, so I said it was fine by me. I wanted to know why she liked it so much though, and she said it was just feeling free and being comfortable, which I said was cool, and she said I should try it sometime. I just kind of said “uh huh” to that, I didn’t think I’d ever actually end up doing it!
Anyway, pretty soon I got used to Jess being nude at home. It never bothered me that I could see her boobs and everything else, cuz I’m a girl too. At first she used to get dressed whenever people came round but after a bit she stopped doing that. That meant that my friends when they came round sometimes saw her naked. At first I was a little bit embarrassed that they had seen her like that but that soon stopped. None of my friends seemed bothered so I wasn’t either.
We used to talk a lot about going nude and stuff like that and Jess asked me a few times if I wanted to try it for myself. I always said “maybe sometime” cuz I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to or not. But having Jess walking round the house naked did mean that I didn’t feel like I had to be fully dressed all the time any more. I started going out of the shower without a towel around me and sometimes I would go back to my room and lie on my bed reading a magazine or whatever without getting dressed.
My first real time of going nude was in the winter. It snowed a lot and our whole back garden was covered with snow. Jess challenged me to a snowball fight and of course I agreed. I went to get my coat and scarf and gloves and things, and I saw that Jess just stayed standing there by the back door, with nothing on of course. I asked her if she was going to go and get dressed and she said “no, I’m going out like this. You should, too, it’ll be fun.” I don’t really know why, but that time I said yes, I would.
Jess was actually really surprised that I’d said yes, she was like “are you sure? You don’t have to if you don’t want to,” but I did want to and I could tell Jess was really pleased that I did. I went upstairs and took off all of my clothes, then we put our shoes on so our feet didn’t get cold and went out into the garden. It was very weird being naked outside, but it was a nice feeling and it wasn’t anything like as cold as I’d thought it would be. I was just standing enjoying what it felt like when this cold, wet snowball hit me on the bum! We had our snowball fight but it didn’t last long cuz we both ended up quite cold with wet hair pretty quickly, but being naked meant only our skin was wet and our clothes stayed dry indoors! We finished up by lying down and making naked snow angels, which was amazing to feel the snow against all my skin, and pretty funny to see two angels with bum prints in the middle! Then we ran inside to get warmed up and Jess asked me if I’d enjoyed myself and I told her I had.
That was the only time I went nude like that for quite a while, cuz I still wasn’t sure about it. The next time was during the Easter holidays. Me and Jess went to stay with our dad, who’s divorced from our mum and lives in Manchester. He has known Jess is a nudist since she told mum and he’s fine with it, and this time Jess asked him if it was OK for her to go nude while she was there. He said it was and so the next morning she came downstairs with nothing on, just like she does at home.
It was a really nice day and so Jess went out to sit on the patio. She seemed very happy to be able to go nude outside in the sun and was enjoying it. That was when I decided that I would like to go nude, too. I’d been thinking of it for quite a while now, that maybe I did want to give it a try, but I wasn’t sure till then. I told Jess that I had decided that I wanted to go nude and she said that was really great, so I went inside and took my clothes off. I went back out into the garden and sat down with Jess.
It felt really good to be nude, actually. I can’t really explain it, but when I went nude in the snow it felt nice, but this was even better! It was really awesome being able to feel the breeze and stuff on my bare skin. And I didn’t feel at all bothered about being naked cuz Jess was as well. We talked for quite a while, mostly about going nude and I said now I could understand why Jess liked it.
We stayed out in the garden sunbathing and talking all afternoon, then went back up to the house. Jess gave me a hug and said she was very proud of me for being so confident and for coming to my own choice about going nude, which was nice, but I couldn’t really see what the big deal was – it was just fun for me! I saw my dad when I went in the house, and when he saw that I didn’t have clothes on he smiled and said “not you as well!” I asked him if it was okay and he said it was fine, so that was cool.
After that I started going nude more and more. Not all the time at first (like, that day I got dressed in the evening, but the next morning I was nude again), but when we got home to my mum’s I started doing it a lot. At first it was just at weekends if we were out in the garden and maybe in the mornings I wouldn’t get dressed until after breakfast (I started sleeping nude too) but after a bit I started coming home from school and instead of changing my clothes I would just take them all off and stay that way until the next morning, just like Jess does. I asked mum if she minded me being naked and she said not in the slightest, she’s had plenty of time to get used to it with Jess!

My girlfriend does the same, and does never wear panties either

66043471Let me introduce myself first, before presenting you my evolution to nudism. My name is Didier. I’m french, so please excuse me, my english can contain some mistakes… I’m 25, male, soon married, and I’ve been living in French-speaking Switzerland for roughly 3 years now. I was born in a family, in which the idea of nudism itself is considered as a pervert thing. Thus, I hadn’t even heard about nudism or naturism before the age of 12. I have also never seen my parents, or any member of my family, naked.
So, why did I become interested in nudism ?
Everything began in 1991, in the summer. I was then just 12. I was at home, my parents were away, and I watched a report on TV, featuring a nudist couple, being married in the nude in the south of France.
I still remember some quite funny things in this TV programme : everybody was completely naked, including all the guests and the mayor of the village, but not the priest ! The husband was wearing only a hat and a butterfly-node, and the spouse only a wedding voile. This TV report interested me, and for the first time, I thought about going nude…
The next night, I then tried to sleep nude for the first time in my life. I did not sleep a lot during that night ! I was cold, and wondered what could happen if my parents came into by bedroom and remarked that I was nude. But anyway, I found it quite good, because I felt unusually free (I usually slept in pyjamas until then). The day after, my parents were away again, and I tried to remain nude the whole day. As the weather was hot, it was a excellent day. I did all the usual stuff in the nude, and this was extremely plesant. The evening, when my parents came back, I was quite sad to have to wear my shorts and T-shirt again. The drug of nudism had caught me, and I’m still addicted to it !
But as I still feared the potential reaction of my parents, I did not sleep in the nude every night. But from then on, when the weather was hot enough, I tried to remain nude as long as possible when my parents were away.
Approximately one year later, I had abandonned my pyjamas, and I was slepping naked more and more often. One morning, my mother, who came every morning to awake me, discovered my pyjamas, and that I was slepping nude. But surprisingly, she did not have a very negative reaction. She was quite surprised, but after I had explained her, that I couldn’t bear pyjamas, T-shirt and slip during the night, she agreed with me and accepted my sleeping nude. The first victory ! The life continued so, sleeping nude, and remaining nude at home whenever possible. Two years later (in 1994), I wanted to try to be nude outside for the first time. I had the chance that there were little woods near the building where we were living. With the other 74257738children, we were used some years before to go playing in these woods. One day (not particularily hot…), I went out, into these woods. I went back to the place where I played in the past, and I took all my clothes off. During 1 hour, I walked in the woods, caring that nobody neither came nor could see me. The feeling of freedom was remarkable… I tried to renew this experience once or twice, but not more, as it was too dangerous : if someone had seen me, I would have been immediately denounciated to my parents…
During that period also, I tried to go without underwear. I did it a couple of times, but quickly stopped as, although I recognised it was more comfortable, I could not prevent my penis to erect at any time, and my erections were clearly seeable. I was naturally not comfortable with this, and abandonned the idea for years. During the summer 1996, I made an important step : I revealed to my mother, that I wanted to stay nude at home. One day, while she had gone away for a few moments, I went into the bathroom to take a bath, but before, I wrote a little message explaining that, when I would go out of the bath, I would remain nude because I felt better like this.
When she came back, she first refused, but I told her that there would be no way that I would swear because I didn’t like it, and she accepted that I remained nude. She revealed herself as being more open-minded than what I could think… So, I spent nearly one month naked, only swearing when my father was at home, and even, only when I stayed with my parents… The remaining time, I stayed naked in my bedroom. It was one of the best summers I’ve ever had !
After this summer, I went to high school in Lyon (in ‘Classes Prйparatoires’, a high-level scientific qualification after the ‘Baccalaurйat’). I had to share my room with 3 roommates, so I was prevented to sleep nude during one year, except during the week-end and holidays, when I came back home. It was the last time I ever wore something to sleep.
The year after, I had my owm room, so I went on again sleeping nude. Since that time (June 1997), I slept non-naked less than 10 times, because I simply had to (sleeping at friends’home, during the military selection, or at hospital) During the summer 1997, the local TV channel broadcasted another programme, about a place near Geneva (called ‘Etangs de l’Etournel’), where naturist people were used to go. As this was not far from home (50 km), I went there on my bicycle. The first time, there were no nudists as the little lakes and beaches were overcrowded (it was the 15-August week-end). But the next time, there was nobody… I stopped, installed myself in a little isolated grass area, and got nude. For the first time in my life, I was nude in public, with other people who could see me. I enjoyed 2 wonderful hours. I went back there quite often during the next 4 years, with good experences, and more bad ones…
For the good ones, I will mention that I’ve meet my first nude women here :) I also spent many hours here, completely naked, reading a book or enjoying the silence and the landscape. Many people could see me, but noone had a negative reaction, as nudism was pretty weel tolerated in this area except during the week-ends in the middle of the summer.
But I also discovered, for the first time, that nudism could also be associated to sexual perversion… Lots of homosexuals are used to meet around these lakes, and do not hesitate to try to have sex with any nude guy they see… I had to reject them quite often, and I had generally no problem, but I finally stopped to go there when I met my girlfriend (and future wife), to avoid further problems.
I tried to go to a lot of other “nude places” in the region, but they were finally all homosexual meeting points. I did not go there again… In 1998, I settled in Grenoble, to enter an engineering school. For the first time in my life, I had my own “flat” (in fact, a student room at the first floor, facing a street, with 3 neighbours). I began to stay nude here more and more often, only swearing for going out (in class or to ride on my bike), or to fetch something in the common fridge on the balcony (1 for 4 rooms). When my neighbours were all away, I even could go out on the balcony in the nude.
I never had the courage to tell my neighbours that I was a nudist, not knowing what their reactions could be : French people are very less open-minded as anglo-saxon ones towards nudism, and nudism is still like a taboo in France… So, during 2 years, I had to keep my windows closed, then secluding myself a bit… I also documentated myself a lot about nudism on Internet in these times, which encouraged myself into going on practicing this “closet nudism”. The third year in Grenoble, I had moved into a larger room, at the 6th floor, whithout direct neighbours, so I remained more and more nude. I even began to do the cooking in the common kitchen in the nude (when there were nobody), or walk between my room and the showers in the nude. Always fearing to be discovered… In April 2001, on a very little climbing road with no traffic, I even tried once to ride on by bike in the buff, during roughly 10 km. That was a great experience, but I didn’t have the chance to try once again…
My progress in “full nudism” went on in Lausanne. There is, not far from here, on the coast of Leman Lake, a little public beach, where nudism is allowed. It’s there that I had my first real nudist experience in public, without fearing homosexual advances, during summer 2003. I really enjoyed it, and I now wait for the heat once again to spend new good times on that beach, with my girlfriend, who I’m trying to convert to nudism also. A few months before, I decided once again that I would not wear underwear anylonger. I packed all my underwear in a bag, and stored them in an inaccessible place (except one slip for absolute necessity cases). As my penis is now much more quieter, there is no problem at all, and I now never wear underwear, under any kind of clothes, including jeans which I wear most of the time.
My girlfriend does the same, and does never wear panties either; though she is still not really converted to nudism, she appreciates the comfort of not wearing any. So goes my nudist life, slowly but surely. The next steps will be :
First, the completion of the conversion of my girlfriend (who will be my wife then) to nudism; I know she will do it, as she is not opposed to this idea, but it will clearly take a lot of time until she is as comfortable with nakedness than I am… Afterwards, spend holidays in nudist resorts. I hope that this will become the truth next year. Well, that’s all; Thanks to all the people who had the courage to read my litterature until here

My first nude beach experience happened today at Haulover Beach

nudists-masturbatingMy first nude beach experience happened today at Haulover Beach. When I first got there, I was not sure where I was supposed to go since there were no signs to indicate the direction to the beach but lucky for me, there were some people who were just getting out of their cars and I followed along until i find the route on where to go. When I saw the sign that mentions that you might find nude sunbathers from this point, I knew I was in the right place.
I have been considering going to a nude beach for a very long time so i have been reading up on various forums like this one that deals with social nudity and talking to people via email who have experience in this area on what to do and not to do at a nudist setting. I wanted to make sure that I had an idea of what was acceptable and not acceptable behavior and what to bring as far as suntan lotion, a towel to sit on, etc. I have that habit of researching anything when it is new to me.
I was told by someone that since I was going as a single male, I should try to not separate myself from people. It could make people believe that I went there for the wrong reason. So I found an empty space that was surrounded by people on all sides so that I would be among other nudists. Once I was amongst everyone, I set down the towel that I had brought with me and the other items that I have brought with me and began to get undressed. I thought I would become a lot more self conscious of the fact that I was getting completed naked in front of total strangers but I did not and get out of my clothes very quickly. No hesitation or wondering if this was a good idea or not. Once I was undressed, I headed towards the water in full view of everyone yet despite my nudity, I did not feel the slightest bit embarrassed about my state. I do not know if this is typical of first time nudists but it seemed almost no different then when I get undressed every morning to take a shower.
This kind of surprised me since I thought I was going to have a harder time getting undressed in front of people. I also had a fear of getting an erection since this sometimes happens whether i want it or not but thank goodness that this never happened. Once I was in the water, It was great to be able to just talk to people and get to know them. I got to speak to quite a few people who were on vacation or were local people who came to Haulover Beach all the time. They all seemed so friendly and cheerful and did not seem to care that both themselves and myself were naked.
I really had a great time today and only wished it could have lasted longer. It started raining heavily and when lightening struck across the sky, they closed the park and everyone was asked to leave. I really wanted to stay longer since I was having so much fun and the feel of the water on my skin was great.
I really hated having to put my clothes back on after experiencing going nude in a public place for the first time. I also hated the fact that I had to wear clothes that were soaked with water from the rain. Yuch!
I definitely am planning to visit again hopefully when the weather is nicer and I can stay for a longer time.
None of my fears about what might happened ever came to pass and I am so looking forward to the next time.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to read about my first experience.

day when public nudity becomes more acceptable is drawing nearer!

accidentally-showing-pussyFirst let me say what a great site. As a 47 y.o. guy in the UK it’s interesting to read that many of the younger posters have had a much more enlightened upbringing than was the norm in my day as regards nudity. Hopefully the day when public nudity becomes more acceptable is drawing nearer! My first experiences being nude were in the 60’s, the personal freedom advocated by the “counter culture” was like a challenge to the establishment at a time when there was a much more oppressive moral “code” as to what was socially acceptable.
Always being one to challenge the establishment I saw nudity as an extension of the political and social attitudes I held. More people were prepared to be nude in public as a form of protest and I increasingly came to think of clothes as another form of oppression. (At the time clothing was also a signifier of class.) I first started going nude “in secret” during holidays when no one was around, I suppose I still felt there was something “perverse” about it, but there was also an elation of feeling more in tune with nature without clothes about it than just teenage rebellion.
It wasn’t until I was in my twenties I encountered social nudity. I stumbled across a naturist beach one day and it was a sort of life changing moment. It took seconds to get out of my clothes, but this was very different to any textile beach I’d ever been to – instead of having your own little space and no intereaction with anyone else this was really friendly, people would come and chat and there was no feeling of discomfort about it. There was also no distinction of class, there were people from many different backgrounds but no social barriers. There were men and women, singles and couples, gay and straight, and you felt you could talk to anyone.
accidentally-showing-pussy-on-beachThe one obvious missing group was younger people. Although there were families with young kids there were no teens or 20’s, all the adults were pretty much middle aged or older. Since then I spend as much time as possible nude, have become a regular beach goer, moved near the beach and arrange my work so I can be on the beach as often as possible (not as often as I’d like thanks to our climate). I have also shaved all body hair as it feels so much nicer and affords a more even tan. My best friends are naturists and I’ve met some great people at various beaches and on the net.
There are some positive changes from my early days, there are more younger people from the missing age group at beaches these days. More non naturists seem more tolerant of naturists, and the net has become a great forum to exchange ideas.
Sadly however it seems to be taking ages for attitudes to change, there are still too many who see us as perverts or link nudity with sex. Our media still views naturism with the same sort of “naughty postcard” image and advertising still uses nudity to sell products. Things are slowly changing though and it is nice to see sites like this helping to change attitudes. Keep up the good work. Any comments are welcome.

I just enjoy life without clothes

Read personal stories from people who have the experience I’m inclined not exhibitionist, I just enjoy life without clothes. I was always shy about my body, in the boys’ locker room at the gym or just under my shirt at the public beach. I was a nudist home, it was easy because I live alone and I did not show my body to anyone.

31798815I started my tan on deck in my boxers. Then, the Tan Lines, I decided to bask in my old bikini briefs to diminish, but began to think about the view from the neighbors. I have a privacy shield, and only then decided I could even get rid of the letter and TAN naked. I fell in love with the feeling naked in the outdoors, but was forced on my deck. I needed to wander the room.

There are no nude beaches around here and I certainly did not want to get busted as an exhibitionist and must register as sex offenders. I began to look at nudist camps. Look, I got the world record Skinny Dip was coming and decided to take the plunge. I began, plans and arrangements, but was not sure I could actually go through with it.

On the big day I packed the car and began the 2 hour journey, filled with both excitement and dread. I think the biggest hurdle was pulling into the drive when I got there, almost drove by. I went to the office and got a tour of the facilities. On the tour we will be in a beautiful naked blonde woman ran a few times, and I began again to doubt if I do that. feared an erection all day, my God, it warn you about 4 hours on the pill ads.

Well, I was hired. I decided to start as close to my comfort zone as possible, so I got out of my beach chair, towel, sunscreen and Ipod. would set up the right of my car on the lawn near the beach and stripped down to the sun as I lay on my deck .. back home

THE SKY do not like and I was not struck by lightning DOWN! (And no erections either)

55323204I could not just lie there all day so after a few beers as reinforcement I went to check the lagoon beach, where would our Skinny Dip official count takes place. The next stop was the conversation pool and I started very relaxed in the warm water, and chatted a bit with the others there. back to the car to pack a cooler and then all the way around the grounds, where they were holding a volleyball tournament. After doing that for a while, it was time for swimming and a hot soak in the bath.

Damn, it was almost three clock already, had to hurry into the lagoon to the Guinness World Record Skinny Dip Set. So here we are again around 300 of us standing in the lake and waits for our picture taken and counted. That’s what I came for, it was funny, but not as much fun as I had the rest of the time.

Okay, so fat naked people were to eat for some time, it was time for lunch. It was a picnic table on the road from my car, got out of lunch and a beer and sat down. During the lunch I saw a pair of tennis at the nearby farm and greeted people passing by, especially the accessibility of the golf carts were faster than you to talk.

After another go ’round talks between the pool, volleyball tournament, swimming pool and Jacuzzi, it was earlier than I had intended to head home. I did not yet left, back to the clubhouse, where they were in possession of a DJ dance. It was not much different than any night club but the clothes and it was BYOB. One last dip in the pool, the conversation at this hour was empty, and it was in the car for 2 hours of driving I did not want to do.

It was an amazing day, very pleasant, relaxed quite amazing to me, and I felt relieved when I do it again, dressed at home in the world. I am planning my next trip, hopefully for a weekend rather than one day, perhaps a membership in the next year. So now I am a confirmed social nudism.

There were only two problems to report, I am a photographer and cameras are not allowed. I photograph mostly everywhere. I also had an accident. Without any case, I accidentally locked my keys in the trunk. Quite a bit worried, luckily the car doors were unlocked and I could drop the back seat and get my keys out of the trunk. It was a tight fit, I mention I’m fat or not? I must be more careful next time. Anyway …

A Great Big THANKS to the nice folks at The Turtle Lake Resort

I was walking alone on a clothing-optional beach

Girl All Alone

12179867I had a manager who constantly discussed his bare encounters so I made the decision to visit a nudist resort in northern Indiana with him and his girlfriend. At the final minute they needed to alter their strategies and could not go, thus being the courageous girl that I ‘m, I determined to go alone.

I phoned forward to be sure I could get in; being a single girl was no trouble for the owners. I understood what to do once I got there so I got out of my clothing and visited the pool.

That was somewhat inconvenient for me for about one minute then I understood we were all naked and abruptly I felt right at home.

I’ve been to other clubs and the same thing occurred, I promptly meet the friendliest folks and have formed lifelong friendships that I’m really thankful for! Some of my nudist buddies have even examined to see whether they could be a live donor and give me a new kidney.( I ‘ve been in kidney failure for recent months). Now that’s real camaraderie!

I’m so thankful for my nudist family and can not wait for summer!

What an excellent feeling once I got into the pond nude, then got out out to lay on the pier to allow the sun dry my skin.

Many years after I went to Total Tan Sun Club…wow the memories came back to the very first time being naked… it was AMAZING, now at 42 I wish to be naked any and all of the time, my wife is not as free as I but one day perhaps she’ll be.

First time Naked Outside

When I was young and began to read Playboy magazine and saw the images of the famous Grotto, I believed that looked like fun. Swimming nude.

I mentioned to myself, I’m really going to really have a pool in this way, and skinny dip at house. It was amazing.

Eventually in 1999,I purchased a house using a pool. Felt just as amazing as the very first time. There were other times, like me & a girlfriend skinnydipping late night at my flat pool. And the following house was the same, but the backyard was quite open so I needed to do it late night due to the aged neighbor.

But I’m heading to Hippie Hollow shortly as I can. Can not wait.

The most liberating encounter

Once when I was walking alone on a clothing-optional beach in Europe I believed if I ever needed to try something completely insane this would have become the second. It was of course a fantastic experience that no one can describe unless they attempt it.

Ever since then I’ve replicated it with visits to naked saunas in Europe and loved it more every time. I convinced my wife to attempt it and she did love it a lot.

Being Nude IsN’t Petroleum

I started as a nudist at a decade old. I was a christan and my parents warned nudity. I got interested and went on Wikipedia. I put in naked and I found out things I never understood before. Being nude does not mean sex. It was so relaxing to see all those folks naked only like me. I adored it ever since.

My first societal-nudist encounter

My Narrative

66043471I was not raised in a nudist family but I ‘d go skinny dipping as a child growing up on a farm. I had an excellent time; it was quite a liberating experience. Over time I joined a club and then started going to bare resorts. I found the folks there were so open and fair and nonjudgmental. I understand that may seem hard to trust but that is the facts. We made amazing friends and my family became members to that club and even now we keep our membership at a closeby club.

I simply wish the people could see that we’re ordinary, regular people who only chance to relish relaxing without clothing on our time off. My grown daughter has plenty of self confidence about herself and portion of the reason is that she understands what real women look like and does not feel insecure about herself. That’s an immediate consequence of her being raised in a nudist family. I believe that if more people tried it they’d see what I am referring to.

Nevertheless, I started seeing narratives about trekking nude outside west and in the Alps, first in Wikipedia, then elsewhere, seven years back.

What a easy, sensible notion which could not possibly fly on the east shore, or so I believed. I needed to attempt it (bucket list in the event you will). Like skinny dipping in the wind instead of in the water. So I headed to Vermont where I could locate suitably distant terrain and legality. Well all I can declare is the fact that the encounter was transforming, like that of finding the independence liberalization and peace of nudity for the very first time, all over again.

Since that fateful minute, I’ve hiked, backpacked, and camped hundreds of miles on the distant trails of the northeast, in all sorts of weather. I’ve gone for as long as a week without putting on clothing in the outback during the summertime. I’ve trekked naked for hours at a time in the snow. I one day trekked in the nude lawfully and without troubling anyone, in a city (Toronto…CO shore and immediate setting off season in November).

74257738Being in the nude in the wilds is a life affirming outdoor activity which has few competitors in my modest view. It sharpens your senses as well as your knowledge of your natural environment and those creatures that share this little section of the universe with us. Additionally you shortly understand how incredibly skillful our bodies are, as delivered by our Creator, at adapting the challenges of our surroundings. Perspiration direction is a wind. Creatures of the woods come closer and take your existence more easily. Eventually I spoke up and apologized to Mr Moose for startling him, the exact same greeting that I normally use in my infrequent meetings with fabrics. With that he took one closing unconcerned look at me and ambled away, crashing through the underbrush.

Unforgettable!

Long distance hikers are taking, even supporting, of my taste. I pick my times and places, in order to avoid having to describe the various delights of hiking in the buff to anxious parents with kids in tow. Section of the ethos of the type of outdoor recreation is recognition and regard for the feelings of others less comfortable with the thought. I go out of my way to prevent “clothed confrontations”. Alas, life isn’t perfect and those occasional “sightings” by unsuspecting others, of my unadorned body have been enjoyable and favorable occasions. After seen, I don’t cover up(sends incorrect message) Freehiking can be a societal or a solo action.

Nudism supports imagination. Dan

First-Time Nudist

My first societal-nudist encounter was at a clothing-optional hot tub in Quad Cities, Iowa. Before arriving I understood the bath would be Clothes Optional, but I presumed that meant that a number of the folks would choose the choice of being naked and some would choose the the alternative of wearing a bathing suit. I ‘d opt to do the latter, although I really had not a problem seeing my pals naked.

When I was brought to the bath, I saw that EACH ONE of the people who live in the bathtub was naked. I will attempt it once.”

I spent the next 17 years seeing every nudist resort and nude beach that I could wedge into my small holiday time.

Eventually, in 1999 I retired and I’ve resided for the previous ten years at a clothing-optional resort in AZ (SLR). The host of the hot tub celebration that began all this, moved here three years back from Iowa.

I was a teenage boy in the mid-60’s and I simply got out of the shower. She asked me why I was not dressed and I told her I was more comfortable not wearing clothing. She said that was okay with her if I needed to be a nudist.

Then I went in the back yard and sun bathed naked. I have been a nudist all these years but my wife does not comprehend it. I go nude in my home as frequently as possible, even when her friends visit.

I do remember all of us boys and dad showering nude in the dressing sheds at the beach

Geoff – written by Geoff of Australia
Nude beach – nudist video X-Nudism.com
I’m Geoff from Australia. I’m 47 now, but, like you, realised that I was a nudist when I was in my early teens.

I shared a bedroom with my 2 younger brothers, sleeping in the top bunk of a bunk bed. Our house was very small. I remember bathing with one of my brothers, Garry, right up to my early teens. My youngest brother, Ian, and sister Julie, who was younger still, also bathed together. At all other times, though, we wore clothes, though in the hot Aussie summers, it was often only shorts and undies. My sister always wore a shirt as well. None of my family were nudists, and my mum was from a strict Catholic background. I’ve never seen her nude.

I do remember all of us boys and dad showering nude in the dressing sheds at the beach, and how often there were men sunbaking nude in the open courtyard in the middle of the dressing pavillion. I didn’t think anything was wrong with that.

When I was 12, I was at high school and my class went to the beach for an excursion. It was an all boys school. I remember one of my classmates (his name was Geoff too!) taking off his swimmers and skinny-dipping in a rock pool. I wasn’t quite game enough to do that, but I did have a very strong desire to swim nude.

While I didn’t swim nude, I did sleep nude. I’d wear pyjamas to bed, then take them off. They always looked worn because I’d shove them down under the covers. I was never comfortable if I had to sleep in pyjamas.

I didn’t know anything about nudism, and wondered whether I was strange or something, but I started to go nude at home when everyone else was out. I nearly got caught nude by an elderly guy who used to visit us regularly. I had actually gone out the back door nude (it was early evening), and I had to dart back inside quickly, close the door, and act like no-one was home!

Another thing I did was to go to bed later than anyone else. It became my job to lock up the back door at night before going to bed. I used this as an opportunity to be nude, even in the middle of winter. I loved being nude under the stars! Occasionally, I’d walk or run around the block nude (I’d have been about 15-17 when I did this). It was a bit daring, going by the houses of all the neighbours who knew me so well, with not a stitch on! The last stretch of the run was down the main road and round the corner into our street, and once I remember the driver of a car coming up the main road honking at me! That was a real rush – someone had seen me! I’d never had the courage (unlike other young people whose stories are on this site) to tell my parents I wanted to go nude.

At the end of my final year of high school, I turned 18 and went on a trip for about 10 days with some of my school mates and one of our teachers. We camped in the grounds of the local Catholic primary school and there were a number of beaches nearby. One night, wearing only a pair of Speedo swimmers, I went out by myself to one of the beaches. I quickly took them off, and ran into the water nude. It was wonderful! I decided to stay nude after finishing my swim, and walked up from the beach to the nearby road. It was probably about 11pm, so I thought I’d go for a jog in the nude. I decided to put my swimmers down in a location I’d remember, so I could chicken out. It was such a buzz! Would you believe I accidentally jogged past the Police Station in the nude? Again, a couple of car drivers honked, but streakers were fairly common then!

I first went nude in front of others of my age at a nude beach when going to University, and that was usually a very positive experience. It was also great to see that there were girls who enjoyed being nude too!

She was made for nude natural sunbathing.

That beach was full of all kinds of merrymaking including volleyball –
but it all stopped when this bombshell arrived. Every man around was
itching to see her taking off her clothes, and she did not keep us
waiting for two long. Watch her hair wave as she uncovers her divine
curves! She was made for nude natural sunbathing. I took loads of pics,
and here are the best ones. Enjoy!

I was lying on the hot sand absolutely naked and
excited, still a bit embarrassed; but the feel of
warm wind was so good on my tits and pussy! I
opened my hips to let the wind better access and
panted: “And what if someone’s looking at me
now?”

In 1994 I was a second-year student of an institute and worked in spare time in one firm as a financial director. By improbable confluence of circumstances we have concluded a contract with one of the Bulgarian firms on delivery in Ukraine of canned food of the Bulgarian production. The bargain was favourable enough both for us and for the seller, and as the additional premium we have received the permits on a resort in Albena.


Unknown charm of alluring foreign trip attracted so hardly, that having thrown all businesses, I, with the direct participation of my family, neighbours and friends, have wrapped up urgently the resort’s attributes and with a highly lifted head has departed to a path, feeling myself as Magellan and Rokfeller in one bottle.
Having passed burden of the path and pleasure from the meeting with the brothers – the slavs I shall proceed at once to my first familiarity with a nude beach. In sanatoriums I was acquainted with the charming girl from Germany – her name was Eva. Her’s and mine broken English became the reason for each of us to pride ourselves of the linguistic abilities has appeared, and on leisure we, from all forces helping ourselves by facial expression and gesticulation, order slow conversations about the degradation of the English language from great Schakespiere’s times. Then I was 19, Eva was younger of myself for one year, we have made friends fast enough and conducted all time together. Once, after an enough late visit on a local disco, I have told to her, that at school in outlet evening we went to meet sunrise with all the class. The night, the stars, the German envy simply could not keep me another output except to train for a new profession – the guide-expert in sunrises. Serching for the most romantic place for contemplation (under my fellow-traveller’s version), or being afraid to stay so that man’s instincts have not insulted the honour of Prussian beauty (my version), we were loitered for four whole hours on marine coast entertaining ourselvs by the nationalistic applications – such as:” Germany is bad, Ukraine is good”,” Ha-Ha-HA”. Mooving away on a decent enough distance from the latter on a coastal band of a sanatorium beach, we have noticed at last the first rays of the ascending sun. A show is actually unforgettable. The huge sun on the sky, shining sea and you, feeling yourself the host installed at the presence of charming foreigner.
Having taken pleasure in nature, we have fallen asleep directly on a beach. I woke up when the sun, which I commended so high, has accepted me by an impudent image for a meat semifinished item simply requiring for urgent preparation up to a condition of a crunching peel. Near to me I have found my friend’s things, which, having spat on international fidelity, proved by me the last nightl, imperturbably left me for bathing at best, for spice in worse. Not having agreed with such statement of a question, I was going in the urgent order to accept all measures for an evacuation of myself more close to water. However, having lifted my eyes, I was puzzled with much more interesting observation. Between me and the sea were some absolutely naked tanners, mainly of men, whose pleased expressions of faces did not keep a doupt that they did not become victims of night pirating and their nudity was planned initially. My first impression was, that these people specially have waited for a moment, when I fell asleep, so to play a trick on me in such a refined method. I pulled myself together, stopped to think about the probable note of the protest from Ukraine to the government of Bulgaria and decided completely to orient on district. As was clarified, round me there was a still set of the people tanning naked. A possibility to understand what happens, knitting it’s brow for the last time, has asked for a small leave at it’s own expense and purely at once has received it. The look of a crazy young man turning his head in all sides, but not moving from his place began to amuse my environment and smiles became shockingly broad, with addition of gestures – such as ” Give join “. The slavic bravery has allowed me to save indifferent – neglectful expression of my face, and slavic mutual aid has reminded me, that my friend is in terrible danger of deriving of a high-power aesthetic shock. I began with tenfold diligence looking for Eva, who was friscing in the sea, with a good intention to notify her about wild customs of the West. I found her at once, she was floating slowly in the direction of a coast, and she was smiling gaily (such a prickly character). I have caught myself on an idea, that all’re smiling this morning but me. Eva did not react at all to my notifying gestures and silent squeals and only began to come faster near to the coast. I have decided, that I didn’t want to remain an idiot on this beach, decided to replace tactics and, representing a response of lovely German, I have stopped useless movements and hardened with a mischievous expression on a face. How you think, who whom has made? When this german invader deigned to appear from water, she was also absolutely naked. I precisely remember my first phrase. I’ve said: “Ups” and then said nothing for a long time. Eva, having taken me under a hand, has assigned me to our lying place and has asked me in innocent, practically angelic voice:” Are you sunbathing in clothes?” Having lost monitoring above happening, I understood, that the circumstances are higher than I am, and without superfluous words undressed completely and, as was clarified, already for ever. In that moment, my operations were very similar on the prelude of urban fight, when we – the young children, clinged to healthy men. My aggression served a good service for me. In difference with many men, hitting on a naked beach for the first time, I did not walk on a beach in the rack of a serviceable hog -inseminator. I was under the impression of a morning shock.
After passing some time I began to realize, that happening begins to like to me. Impressions of naked bathing – are super, from tanning – once again super. The comprehension of some depravity of my act, reminded myself, what I am actually spoiled, that is to say – steep. Eva chattered something in german (miss has taken a great interest), I’ve at this time examined enclosing. The uncontrolled liberty of these people has forced me to be ashamed of all that I devised to myself in the morning. For the first time it became clear to me, that sex is not present here. By the way I am glad, that I had not to become it clear by an experimental way. Under the extremity of this day I even was photographed with the girlfriend by the local photographer, on memory of pleasantly conducted bottom.
So I have visited a naked beach for the first time. As was clarified later, Eva already had the experience in naked rest, whether at them in Germany it is accepted. She told me about huge world naked resorts, where thousands of people are naking all day long. It is cool, isn’t it?. It does not mention, that the last two days of our rest we conducted on this beach without quiting and my reliance that I put all correctly grew on eyes. Having returned in Kiev, first of all I began to search for places, where it is possible to have a naked rest without problems with enclosings. But it is already another story.

I wish I could say that I grew up in a naturist household, spending my summer holidays running round naked in the sun.

X-Nudism.com – nudist pictures portal

I wish I could say that I grew up in a naturist household, spending my summer holidays running round naked in the sun. But I can’t. I grew up in the East Midlands in the UK in the 1970’s (I was born in 1968), with a perfectly normal childhood. I only ever saw my parents naked once or twice, and I don’t think they’ve seen me naked since I was about 10.

So, I grew up with all of the normal British reservations about showing my body in public.

I think that my first “exposure” to naturism came on holiday in the south of France with my parents when I was (I think) about 17 – my last holiday with them before I became a student and then left home. We stayed near Port Grimaud, and one day I decided to see what was on the other side of a large stony breakwater. Imagine my surprise when I saw a beach full of naked people! I’d love to say that I went and stripped off and joined them, but I didn’t. Remember, this was a time when I didn’t even want my parents to see me without a shirt on!

Anyway, when I was a student (living at home), I picked up a copy of Health and Efficiency from a shop that had it as one of its “top shelf” magazines (a phrase that will no doubt be familiar to British readers, but may be less so to those from overseas. Just remember that Playboy is a “top shelf” magazine!). It was interesting to discover a magazine full of nude photos of what I came to think of as “normal” people doing normal things – not models who seem to be auditioning for a gynaecological textbook. At this time, I also started to spend time around the house nude when everyone else was out, but this was more from the “illicit thrill” point of view. However, my opinion started to change, and I found that I really enjoyed being naked, and envied people who were able to go on naturist holidays. I did manage a couple of afternoons sunbathing nude in the back garden in a very rare time when my parents were on holiday and my brother was still away at college in another town.

And that was it for several years. In 1992 or 1993, my girlfriend and I went to stay with a friend who lived in Poole, on the south coast. On the Saturday we went to their local beach for a walk, and my friend warned us that there was a nudist section. It was Studland Bay, somewhere I had heard of in H&E (which I had long stopped buying, mainly because I had moved in with my girlfriend). So there I was, walking along Studland, surrounded by nudists, but I didn’t dare do anything. I mean, I used to work with my (female) friend (and did again a few years later) and couldn’t imagine telling her “hey, I’d love to strip off here”. For all I know, her and her husband might have been regulars, but that wasn’t going to happen!

My girlfriend and I went back to Studland on our last day as the weather was nice, and I somehow plucked up the courage to suggest to her that we went to the nudist beach because I fancied stripping off. She was pretty amazed, but agreed on the understanding that she didn’t have to. I really enjoyed it, much to her bemusement. I even swam naked in the sea, which was just superb (if a little cool).

Over the next few years, my girlfriend indulged me and we visited Studland once or twice a year and I also stripped off once or twice on a beach in France, but that was pretty much it.

For the last 3-4 years however, we have been on holiday in French cottages, and we’ve always managed to be remote enough for me (and occasionally my girlfriend) to strip off by the pool.

Over the last couple of years, I have been doing a series of photography courses (I’m a very keen amateur), and the last one, in 2003, was “social documentary”. I struggled for a long time to think of a subject, and from somewhere deep down I came up with the idea of doing something on naturism. I hunted round the internet and found a club in Marlborough (which is about 50 miles from Bristol where I now live) who surprisingly enough were agreeable for me to take some photos and invited me to come along and see them – even though I would be on my own as my girlfriend would not be joining me.

So, I somewhat nervously went to see them so they could meet me and I could see what the photographic possibilities were. They were most welcoming, and I spent a thoroughly pleasant evening swimming and playing badminton in the nude.

There were some delays in getting permission from the sports centre they use, and in the end they said “no”. By this time, I had been 2 or 3 times and was getting to enjoy it. So, even though my project was killed off before I had taken any pictures, the club asked me if I wanted to join, and I did. I now go along once a month or so, and love it. The main problem is that the club meets on Saturday evenings, and I feel guilty about leaving my girlfriend on her own at home when I go. I’d love for her to come as well, but she isn’t confident enough at present, although she hasn’t ruled out the possibility entirely.

More recently, I have been starting to think about making contact with one of the clubs not too far from Bristol – one that has its own land – so I could possibly have somewhere outdoors to visit regularly.

Tyler – Besides nudism I also enjoy playing pool, listening to all kinds of music …

Let me start of by giving you a little info about myself. I’m 26 years old and currently living in Aventura, Florida. I have been going nude sice I was 17 or so. Besides nudism I also enjoy playing pool, listening to all kinds of music (except country and gangsta rap), working with computers, and talking about cars. Now I’ll get into how I got started as a nudist.

I was 17 when I first became courious about how it felt like to be nude in my room. I don’t know exactly why but I thought I would be more comfortable if I took off my underwear, so I did. It felt weird at first, for a while I was self conscience of my body. Not because anything was wrong, just because I had never been nude in my room before I guess. I got over the awkwardness (self-conscienceness) and it felt nice.

When I was 18 a senior in high school I was on the cross country team. We ran about a mile or so from a nude beach (Blacks). People joked about running there, but no one actually did.

One day on a run by myself I ran near there and decide to run to the nude beach. I made it there and saw the nude people. At this point I was courious as to what it was like to be nude on the beach, why these people did it. I ran to a sort of issolated part of the beach (only a few people around me and were not that close.) I took off my shoes, socks, and t shirt. I sat there for 10-20 min. I then was relaxed and comfortable enough to say to my self I want to get nude and see what it feels like.

So off came my shorts and underwear! I sat there nude for a min. or two then stood up. I’ll never forget that moment. What I felt I can only describe as the most awesome sense of freedom I have ever felt in my entire life! I felt so fee and alive! It was simply awesome to be nude outside in the fresh air and sun! It felt great… so comfortable I then ran into the ocean and swam. It felt so nice to swim without an suit I loved that experience and wanted to do it again.

After that I went back to blacks several more times. I also went to other nudist beaches; San Onfre, (45 min north of blacks), and More Mesa in Santa Barbra. San Onfre is nice, its more secluded than blacks with less gawkers. I went to college in Santa Barbra and I discoverd More Mesa. This is a wonderful beach! Verry private and secluded. I went to UCSB in Santa Barbra and saw signs for models wanted for art class. I signed up and posed nude for the art class. It was no big deal for me and it was fun. It was neat to see how each artist painted me in their own way. My mom noticed the check from the art school and asked me about it infront of the family. I told her the truth, they all just laughed and gave me a hard time about it but were not offended or mad or anything so it was cool.

Since that time, I have been to two nudist resorts in CA. I had a really nice time in both resorts. The people there were verry friendly and made me feel welcome there. It was verry relaxing and fun to spend the day nude swimming, eating, sunning, meeting new people etc. Most of the people were older (30’s-60;s) but I enjoyed myself anyway. Its cool though to see all the young people involved with nudism in this group.

My nudist tendencies faded in and out over the years to follow.

Although I can’t exactly remember my very first nude experience I do know I was around 10 or 11 when I started feeling the urge to be nude. Like many of the first time stories on this site I started out by sleeping nude. My parent’s room was across the hall and they had to pass my room to get down stairs. At some point I decided I did not care if they saw me sleeping nude. They never said anything if they did see me. My dad slept nude as long as I can remember so I doubt it was a big deal to anyone.

That was as far as they knew anything though. When I was young I liked the feeling of being without clothes but did not know exactly why or that there was this lifestyle called nudism. For many years I thought I was weird, and had no clue other people like this as much as I. I never let anyone know either. I did know about skinny dipping and once while camping with my “way older” brother and his family and friends a bunch of the adults went skinny dipping after dark. In a public State Park none the less. None of the kids went in though. He was a product of the 60’s. *smile*

My nudist tendencies faded in and out over the years to follow. I always slept nude and after getting my own vehicle there were times when I skinny dipped in lakes or streams when I was alone. However; there was never a time I remember an all out urge to be nude every day. That is kind of funny though, I can remember being nude in my room a lot and liking it very much.

It actually wasn’t until I was about 21 or 22 that being nude became a strong calling. I was married by that time and had a baby girl. Ohhh she was so cute. My wife however was not much into being nude. She wasn’t against me being nude she just didn’t seem to notice or care about it. I was still young and hadn’t come to full grips with my self esteem yet, so I was only nude while I was alone for the most part or after a shower or other obvious reasons. We did runaround the house nude sometimes late at night watching movies and such. I liked being nude but I still thought I was a little weird. I would drive home from work late at night and get naked for the drive once in a while. It was only about ten minutes but it felt good so I enjoyed it as much as I could. Later I got a job working construction and ended up buying a motor home to live in while I was working away from home, which was about 11 months out of the year. I was gone 5 or 6 days a week most of the time, but I would drive home on the weekends. This was when I really came to grips with my desire to be nude. Living alone in my motor home was great. I could be nude whenever I wanted and that was most of the time. I even started driving to and from work nude quite often. The drive was one to three hours depending on where the job site was. In the heat of summer I drove this way a lot more. It was my escape from tension, I loved it. Sometimes I would stop along deserted highways and walk around or climb a hill or something just to prolong my nude time. After a few years of working away from home all the time, and having other marital problems we ended up getting a divorce.

Now I found myself with my daughter every other weekend and a couple nights a week. I quit the traveling job and started working a local one. My relationship with my daughter was always good, but now it was awesome. I got to see her more and we could do fun stuff after work and I could go to all her school functions and everything was great. Now I found myself with much less nude time. This started to bum me out after a while. I love my daughter more than anything in the world and loved our time together but I felt I had to wear clothes. I had never seen any nudist web sites, or how whole families go nude together. I did have some kind of idea about nude beaches but there are none in my state and didn’t even know where one was. So all this family nudity and lifestyle stuff that most of the readers of this site have read, I had NO clue. So after a while I started to feel guilty about having fleeting thoughts of not wanting my daughter around quite so much. This really disturbed me; I love her so much and want her around all the time. I had to make a decision. Was it possible to have the best of both worlds, could I really be nude in front her? Remember, I had never seen anything about nudism on the net before. After much consideration I knew I could, and there was nothing wrong with it.

Here is how I did it. Just like the articles of others on this site and many other sites, I started by not getting dresses immediately after a shower, and running around in a towel more. She would make joking comments about, “put something on dad.” Then one day after a shower I was sitting at my desk with the towel under me but not around me. She walked in and instantly looked away. “Dad!” she said, I just said,”It’s OK and there is nothing wrong with being nude.” She walked out without looking at me. We are always together in my room and we talk allot and are very close. So in a few minutes she came back in and looked at me kind of funny, thought about it, you could just see the gears moving in her head, and I said, “I wasn’t putting clothes back on right now and that it is OK”. It took a couple of days like this before she got comfortable with me being nude. It was a fast acceptance though, after a few days she never really even noticed and things never changed between us and there has never been any issues come from it. In the beginning she was shy about looking at my nude body, after a while I would catch her looking at “that area” once in a while. It is only natural to look at such things and I feel it is actually healthy for a child to see their parent’s nude. (read other web sites) It sure took the curiosity out of boys for her. From much reading on the subject, curiosity is what leads to sex early in teenagers. (This is a whole other story)

t is not an “alternative” lifestyle. and it has to be promoted simply and as fun

it is not an “alternative” lifestyle. and it has to be promoted simply and as fun. think the preachiness sometimes turns people off.and the fact that practice is less overt than in other parts of the world makes it harder to “sell” to mainstream america. it is also facing strong institutional opposition from religious groups and the clothing industry. and the equation in many quarters of nudity with sex and pornography makes it additionally frustrating. i think great strides have been made in the past 20 years. it may take another 20 to increase acceptance, which is why i try to convince the younger generation to use their unique perspectives to advance our way of doing things and to change perspectives. there are no easy answers. if there were, we would not be discussing this. and it is in small steps, sorry, dont see blinding light of mass tolerance any time soon.,

Trying to appeal to a general audience, such as with a book or magazine article will probably be ignored by most of the mainstream. It will probably get the attention of thrill seekers. Past attempts I know of to to run bus trips using advertisements in general newspapers did not attract desired audiences. Therefore, any attempts to reach a positive public will have to be targeted to specific groups of readers. BTW, if statistics presented in other forums indicate that participation in nudist activities has been on the increase in the last ten years, can articles be placed in travel and vacation magazines? If non-nudist resorts can be featured, can nudist resorts also be featured? Can family oriented parks and resorts in the US be given the same attention as say St. Martin and the hedonistic places in Jamaica? Maybe people closer to the travel business than I am will have some answers. Also, perhaps by refering to Nudism as a form of recreation rather than a lifestyle will appeal to morally conservative friendly people.

I do not think naturism/nudism should be considered a lifestyle

I do not think naturism/nudism should be considered a lifestyle, that might convey some negative ideas. Word of mouth seems to be the best way to get the message out to people. People I have talked too about nudism always have questions, like “How could you do that?” “Weren’t you embarrassed?” “What do you do, just sit around naked?” Once people understand that naturism/nudism is not an orgy, and that we enjoy being free, socializing and enjoying ourselves, have a different view of nudism. A lot of the press we get is negative too, people have a hard time separating naturism/nudism from the hedonism group. We have to let people know that we are a family oriented group, and yes there are adult oriented nudist groups too. We have raised our kids nudists, and what will determine if they continue to be nudests is how they are accepted into the clubs. There seems to be a generation gap, you do not see too many young people in their early 20’s at the clubs. Continue reading I do not think naturism/nudism should be considered a lifestyle

people in their 20s are turned off by the generation gap

people in their 20s are turned off by the generation gap, the lack of activities, and primarily the cost. they want to go to relax and have fun and not get embroiled in camp politics. they also dont want to be treated like 5 year olds when they ask questions or make suggestions. and the “circle the wagons” mentality still exists to an extent, which restricts expanded membership/sustained interest Continue reading people in their 20s are turned off by the generation gap

we just choose to do some things nude that others would do clothed.

we just choose to do some things nude that others would do clothed..the negativeism is the media look at this. I think it is not an alternative lifestyle as kim said..just a different perspective. Just being positive and articulate can be one of the best ways to promote nudism/naturism positively. Just stay “in the face” of the detractors. The media and the religious right. (USA)..we are just as forthright as they are. If we convey a positive attitude etc we can get more into this. Yes putting in adverts in mainstream media can do a good job too. It will take time to get the sensationalism out of the minds of the media..If they can sell naturist magazine in a Borders Books for instance might be an option.. Continue reading we just choose to do some things nude that others would do clothed.

I think the internet has gone along way to educating the general public about naturism.

This is a question I’ve considered for quite sometime. Firstly, I think the internet has gone along way to educating the general public about naturism. I think a lot people expect that naturism on the internet is about sex and pornography, but soon after their initial searches I hope that they soon discover something different. I guess an example is the number of times that messages on this site are viewed compared to those that are replied to. I’m guessing this site gets a lot of lurkers and few contributors. Secondly, I’ve been running an MSN group for young people interested in naturism in Sydney, Australia. I’ve made two interesting observations from this group… There are very few people in their late teens and early 20’s applying to join, the average age is about 30 in spite of a 35 year old age limit. And, we have strict membership requirements, so applicants have to offer their age, location and interest in Sydney naturism before their membership is approved. Subsequently, I deny something like 4 in every 5 applications. So, I ask the question… Are young people _really_ interested in naturism? Does a market exist? If not, why bother targeting this and why not focus on the older population? Sponta. Continue reading I think the internet has gone along way to educating the general public about naturism.

Naturism can be promoted to young adults with families

Naturism can be promoted to young adults with families if the local clubs can be set up to provide superior activities for the children that give the adults a respite at a price point they can afford. This may not be as hard as it may seem given the setting of many club activities in nature. What is needed is nature programs the whole family can enjoy. Naturism can be promoted to young adults who are singles as a superior way to find good mates, although one could never be explicit about that. That could be done among several clubs linking young people together and linking into Colleges and Cities where the girls are that draw the boys. Here, nudist philosophy could make a big positive difference in their lives even if they did not practice nudism regularly thereafter.

The current offering from many naturist resorts is simply boring for younger people.

Stuffed Tiger, I think you’re right. The current offering from many naturist resorts is simply boring for younger people. Many of the resorts in Australia wouldn’t get young people to them, even if they weren’t designated “clothing optional”. The only exception that I know of is Cap d’Agde in France which offers a variety of activities for all ages. Its ashame other resorts don’t follow suit. Sponta

We have brought our kids up to nudism/naturism, if they stay with it is to be seen.

Stuffed Tiger and Spontanudity I think you are both right. We have brought our kids up to nudism/naturism, if they stay with it is to be seen. They are comfortablw with nudism, but get bored easy at the club. Most clubs are run, managed, are geared towards an older adult, there is just not enough things for the young people to do. I would love to see an offering like Cap d’agde close by. One problem young people have is peer presure from outside the nudist group, which tends to steer them away from nudism. I see a lot of single males, and married ones for that matter, that would love to have their girl friends or wives go to a nudist club with them. Single males tend to be excluded from most clubs, so they have a hard time finding single women to meet at clubs. Another proble is young people do not have the money or time when they are first starting out, to get involved actively in a club. I talk with a lot of people in ther 40’s that are now established and have the time, that wished they could have started sooner. You also see younger people at the clothing optional beach, most of them tend to be younger single males.

People seem to be becoming more open minded

People seem to be becoming more open minded, especially college students. They’ve seen everything and done everything. If we educate the public about all the other subjects, they may be smart enough to see that nudism is not even worth giving a second thought, it’s not bad, so it must be good. If it’s not bad then why argue about anything, let’s all be nudist. We need more college students, I can’t stress that enough. Also people talking about it on TV and in magazines helps. Especially if their comments are geared towards young people since young people like college students aren’t set in their ways. *chuckle* a portrait of the older more dignified Cinderela

playing around the beach and everybody is welcome

Kimberly, one of the most amazing things about cap d’agde is the age range. There are plenty of younger people in groups playing around the beach and everybody is welcome… oh… I want to go back! Its naturism heaven!
