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.

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.

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

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.

More nudist video at X-Nudism.com

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.

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..

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.

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!
