Two first experiences

I started loving nudism by sleeping in the nude. After I started to do my work round the house nude. My wife was surprised when I came downstairs nude one day and I could tell her reluctance.

One late summer day after working on the boat I was really warm so I drove around to the lake. Because it was mid-evening there were very few folks in the beech so it was able to find a secluded area. I walked into the lake and when torso deep took off my swimsuit. It felt amazing. Before I walked out of the water, so as to not offend anyone, I put the suit back on. I’ll never forget the feeling of the first time naked in Lake Michigan.

Near the end of summer I walked from the lake into the dunes. I removed my swimsuit and was naked outdoors, other than my backyard, for the first time. I remember thinking to myself that I am a “nudist.”

After trekking in the dunes a number of times but concerned about clothed hikers I decided on trying a nudist club. The best part of going to a club is you can wonder along the nature trail, go into the pool, etc. and not be concerned about other individuals.

Being at a club, it doesn’t matter if someone is url or not. YOU can really be bare and love. I just wish I would have started this before.

Everything I Thought It Would Be

After discussing a visit to Gunnison Beach here in NJ, my lovely wife and I made the decision to make the excursion. I am 40 and my wife is 41. We were both aware that it was ‘clothing optional’ and I knew that most folks would be bare, but I think my wife believed it would be a 50-50 split (nude, partially nude).

When we got there she was a little overwhelmed. She didn’t take her suit away at all. However, after a while of sitting in our chairs and seeing the scenery, I believed I really could take the next step. I asked my wife if she thought it was OK, and she looked at me with a look that said, “are you mad?” But she afterward said, “sure, do it.”

A number of seconds after, I stood up and took off my swim suit. And guess what? Nothing happened. No earthquake.

No bolt of lightning. Nothing. Everyone went about their company.

I, however, adored this new feeling…sitting in the sun, wind blowing…it was incredibly refreshing and liberation. I adored it. After a few beers, I asked my wife if she desired to walk to the water with me. Again, she looked at me with a look that said, “are you mad?”

I said, “why not.” So, at first she did not need to go, but after a second she said sure. That was quite intimidating. I’m walking in my birthday suit through dozens of men and women.

Anyway, the water was lovely. Swimming sans clothing was a first for me too…and it was another great experience. I made the walk from our seats to the water 3 or 4 times, each time loving it more and more.

I’d like to go back and try it again. My wife is now referring to going back and removing her top. Hey, whatever makes her comfortable. We’ll see how it goes.

Our Nude Venture

When I was a lad the words “naked” or “nude” weren’t part of my family’s vocabulary. The sole nudity we understood started with your shower, and finished as soon as you can grab your towel. My brother and I never went shirtless or barefoot. We were never even permitted to wear sandals or flip-flops. Being naked was never an option.

As always, life goes on. Faculty, work, marriage, children, divorce; all flew by in what appeared to be a brief period of time. With the birth of the Internet I found out about this thing call “social nudism.” I was intrigued and the idea grew slowly that I’d like to take part in this nude adventure. After my divorce, I started to sleep in the nude, which I found to be a whole lot more comfortable than wearing pajamas. Still I lacked any social interaction with other nudists.

About this time I remarried. My wife, of Eastern European background, was open to our sleeping nude. Following the kids moved out to begin their particular families, we started to be much freer with our clothing at home and we talked regularly about nudity and whether it was right or wrong according to Biblical standards. As Christians we desired to do the right thing. Examination of the Scriptures led us to the conclusion that simply being naked, and being nude with others wasn’t in battle with our Bible. We began to be naked at home increasingly more. We still had not been able to go everywhere that allowed nudity.

Finally we had our opportunity one winter when we were on a Caribbean cruise. The ship docked in Jamaica. I ‘d already found out that we could get day passes at a resort that had an Au Natural isle. We took a taxi to the resort and checked in at the desk. They desired to show us around the resort but surprisingly would have nothing to do with such a tour. She needed to get out to the island as soon as possible. I couldn’t agree more. As soon as we arrived, we located two lounge chairs in a sunny location. We had our clothes off in the blink of an eye. Like many others have said, it was so great to be nude. We swam around a little and then came the moment of truth – meeting other people. We spoke to a few of the other guests and we loved our time there so much we actually hated to leave. Being nude on the isle was so natural and simple. We were solicited!

This summer we’ve traveled to three nudist clubs/resorts. We even ran in a clothes optional 5K race at Turtle Lake Resort in Michigan. We had so much fun. My wife and I agreed that we should have done this sooner! Why did we wait so long?

Our Michigan First Time

My lovely wife and I frequently vacation in Michigan. We’re household nudists for the past six months. By this I mean that we were staying nude sometimes after a shower and then we began being naked before bedtime. We drink coffee and eat lunch naked.

My wife was unwilling but she agreed that there was no damage since we’ve been married more than 35 years. This summer we went north and found a isolated lonely shore in northern Michigan. We walked for miles to locate a peaceful place to read and sunbathe. Most beaches in Michigan are full of noisy children and angry parents. We simply wanted seclusion to locate some peace and enjoy the sunshine.

However, I went swimming after an hour of sunlight and my swimsuit got too wet to lay back on my towel , and so I took it away. My wife, who is terribly shy and very religious was upset that we might be arrested for my nakedness. We’re conservative Republicans and we usually do not condone criminal actions. But I explained to her that as long as nobody was seeing me naked I committed no crime.

She was becoming hot and after much complaining she also carried of her swimsuit and went for a dip in the lake. I really don’t understand why being nude is a crime if you have a designated location where it could be legal to be without your clothes. Anyway we will begin writing our representatives to modify the laws in the Michigan National Lakeshore in order that people don’t have to feel like criminals if they violate no one.

I do not understand why with the membership your organizations has, nobody has come up with a strategy to legalize some places of Michigan to be clothing optional. We need to change the perception that nakedness is a offense that should be punished by the law. A lewd act ought to be punished but a naked body is no reason to be arrested or punished.

Allow the Adventure Begin!

I have always found it fascinating how different people define their “first time” nudist experience. While the first social nudist encounter is a significant occasion, I actually consider two “first times” when I think of my nudist life.

First, is the conscious decision to adopt nudism as part of who I am as a person — to buck social norms, to accept something some others see as odd. From my first era, I’ve always loved being naked. Yet, I was far from open about it, keeping it concealed, keeping it to myself, and like many more, only spending time naked when alone. Why? Panic. Fear of ridicule, humiliation, and not being who others wanted me to be.

Also, there was a certain level of self doubt that maybe my nudist hobby was “a bit odd.” Perhaps it was merely a stage. It was not until early maturity that I eventually said, nope, this isn’t peculiar, it isn’t a period — it is pure, it is wholesome, it is authentic, it’s enjoyable, and it’s amazing. More to the point, it’s part of me. I’m quite proud of that determination. It is an achievement every nudist or naturist shares.

My first “social” encounter wasn’t at a club or a beach or anything like that. It was in my house. It was the night I got up the nerve, turned to my wife and said, “I believe I Had like to be nude around the home sometimes…..merely because I enjoy it. Will that freak you out?” Obviously, she understood I certainly appreciated being naked, but I ‘d never sought out time to be nude only for the pure enjoyment of it. Naturally, she didn’t mind. I’ll never forget the exhilaration of walking into our living room, only moments after, fully nude.

Since then, I’ve had many “bare ventures.” As much as I cherish each if them, they all return to the day I first determined nudism was going to be part of my own life as well as the night I shared it with the love of my entire life. I am a better man for it — happier, more understanding, more accepting. I am happy to say I have never looked back!
