I never grew up thinking much of nudism, it only wasn’t on my mind. Inside my mid 20s I discovered how much I enjoyed being naked after I took showers, and would start spending more and more time nude at home. I guess I was a part time home nudist for some time, which was amazing.
After a while, I thought I’d like to try social nudism, but I wasn’t certain if I had the nerve. Heck, I’d never even been nude in a locker room. Our school only had us change clothes, so down to underwear was about the most exposure I had with others.
After a number of years, I eventually decided to give it a shot. I had chatted online with plenty of nudists and found another guy my age who lived close to me. One day I drove around to his flat (hands trembling with the first timer nerves) to meet up. Rang the doorbell, and much to my surprise he answered the front door naked and invited me in. While I was caught off guard (I thought we’d discuss a bit in person before nudity), I still thought it was cool as well as a pretty good ice breaker.
So, I believed to myself “when in Rome” and within about 30 seconds of meeting, I’d stripped down in his front hall! It was just like ripping off a bandaid! Of course it was a considerably more freeing and liberating experience than taking off a band aid. Much to my surprise, I wasn’t embarrassed or self-conscious to be standing there naked in front of a complete stranger. It was exhilarating.
We hung out for a couple of hours, talked about nudism, watched TV, played cards (not strip poker, of course). It was a great experience and I am happy I finally gave it a shot after all those years.
That was about 5-6 years ago and I’m still participating in social nudism – whether it is at a friend’s house or at a nude beach or resort. Happy I eventually gave it that first shot and never looked back!
I knew I was a nudist
Even at a very young age, I enjoyed being bare. I had two other brothers growing up so I found it hard to have any privacy to be nude. My parents had over 6 acres of land as well as on a hot sunny day I would go off by myself and strip off all my clothing and lay in the sun.
As I got older and moved out on my own, I started to sleep naked; nothing is more relaxing than that to get a good night’s slumber. On the weekends, if I was not going anyplace I ‘d be naked round the house for the entire day and do whatever.
Six years ago I finally decided to go to my first nude beach located at Playalinda Beach. It did not take myself very long to be naked like everyone else. For the next four years I kept going back once or even twice per year. My only sorrow is that I didn’t go earlier. This past September I finally ran my first nude 5k race at cypress cove. I enjoyed so much that I’ve signed up for two races this year.
Now, whenever I can I am always nude in my home or at a nudist resort being free of clothes and worries; there’s nothing like it.
Naturism Takes Flight
Occasionally, I’ll jokingly remark that I owe my thanks and my love for naturism to my employer. You see, I work in the airline travel business as a flight crew member. Back in the day when airlines offered onboard magazines as an amenity for flying customers, I was nonchalantly thumbing through the pages of one of the publications entitled “Outside.”
It offers its readers tips and guidance about outdoor recreational sports equipment and traveling. Among the pages of this particular problem contained a colorful graphic advertisement for Lee Baxandall’s, “World Guide To Nude Beaches & Recreation”. The name of Lee Baxandall is going to be understood by any seasoned naturist or nudist likewise (of which I was neither at the time). Lee first took up the task of naturism in Wisconsin as an Eagle Scout. After, in 1980, he became the founding member of The Naturist Society. He is also an inductee into AANR’s Nudist Hall of Fame. However , I digress. His premier guide to nudism in natural settings peaked my interest. With pencil & paper, I jotted down the address of where to order my copy of this washed-out listing of places where one can vacation, camp, swim and socialize without wearing a single stitch of cloth. A number of weeks prior to my encounter with Mr. Baxandall’s guide, I ‘d organized an upcoming week of holiday alone in beautiful Maui, Hawaii. After receiving my copy in the mail, I immediately turned to the section of nudist beaches found in the Aloha State and chanced upon “Little Beach”. When it was time to board my flight for Maui (this time as a regular joe and not a working crew member), I anxiously expected the moment I would finally experience a whole week on the sand and by the ocean wearing nothing but my skin along with a grin. That first expected ‘simple’ second has now come and gone. And my memory of it brings many descriptive words to mind: natural, liberating, freeing, exuberating, sexy yet non-sexual, energizing, rejuvenating and a lot more. And for me, the ‘so-much-more’ includes spiritual reconnection. I believe my nakedness doesn’t belong to me, but instead to Creation. NUDE is how I was ‘created’ and brought into the world. THAT, within itself, makes it religious in nature for me. It makes it a good thing, balanced and pure; nothing to be ashamed of nor to hide. Instead, I see my nakedness as something to embrace and to be lived. I want to allow it to breathe my existence. In my view, to refuse my nakedness will be to denounce my Creator’s creation.
I do not wish to silence that breath. Itis a present. http://1115.us need it to boom. I would like it to grow. And in the process, I express my sincerest form of gratitude to the “Giver” of that gift; oh, and gratitude to my employer for stocking that magazine on the airplane. And for granting me the coveted perk of air travel. It is an ideal means by which to discover and experience more of this beautiful planet’s Au-Naturel destinations. Today, I still love flying high Au Naturel!
Long Time Nudist
When I was still a kid I always felt good when I was naked, so I’d always make sure I had to walk to the bathroom to take a bath and back to my room naked. as soon as I turned 8 years old I began sleeping nude and would sit around or lay on my bed in my room nude all of the time, and when no one was home, I would remain bare in different portions of my house.
as soon as I turned http://nudebeachpicture.net had a pal and streaking was a big craze then, so we would streak every opportunity we got. Regrettably my family would not have agreed for me to be a nudist, so I could not tell them, nor be bare in front of those.
When I moved into my very own house I was nude on a regular basis. I tried to persuade my girlfriends that they would like being a nudist but most would not attempt it, and also the ones that attempted it did not like it, but I consistently continued being nude all the time since it is the only means I want to be.
Before I got married my fiancee knew I was a nudist and also would continue to be a nudist after we were married, and after 25 years of marriage she understands I ‘ll always be a nudist.
She’s not a nudist. As well, my children aren’t nudist. Lucky for me my family understands being naked is the manner I’m comfy, and don’t mind that I ‘m consistently bare. I loved being bare, and always will.
I’ve been a nudist for 49 years and no way I’d ever alter.

Breaking Down Barriers
On a recent visit to a Florida beach resort, while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, the unbelievable urge to be nude in the water was too much to suppress. I found myself out beyond any other swimmers and removed my trunks. I stayed there for what seemed like hours enjoying the feel of the water and a freedom like I have never experienced before.
I am a 51 year old male and never would have thought to do something like that in a private pool let alone the Gulf. The exhilaration I felt left an indelible picture of the freedom and awareness of one with nature that I wish to carry on.
Upon returning home I promptly joined AANR and am actively seeking a local resort to visit. It’ll be my first “official” exposure (no pun intended) to a naturist environment and I welcome any ideas.
Thank you for opening up a fresh phase in my entire life.
