My history without clothes

married-nudistsMy history without clothes has been long but quite sporadic. As I read in this forum, there are many who have been comfortable with nudity since childhood.
That was certainly not possible for me in the very conservative home in which I was raised. I do remember very vividly my first experience. When I was 13, our family was trailor camping in a forest in the south of England. It was a lovely morning and I was up before anyone else. I stepped outside in the dewy morning in my pajamas and found a path leading away into the woods. The temptation was too great. Once I was out of sight, I took off all my clothing and ran naked through the forest. It was a fantastic feeling! Unfortunately, it was not an experience I could repeat easily. As I grew through my teen years, there was no possibility of being nude at home or in the back yard.
I had to be satisfied wearing brief underwear and I would sometimes lie on a towel in the yard. My mother was not thrilled, but did not say too much. Some years later, I was married and I remember with great fondness a day when my young bride and I walked naked in a field. It was a great feeling of freedom, but not one which has been repeated often. Over the years, I have visited Wreck Beach when I was visiting Vancouver. There I found people very open and accepting. Unlike many I have read about in this forum, I did not have any hesitation about taking off my clothes with strangers. It was a very freeing experience. I remember once lying across a log from a young woman and a couple of young men who were having a conversation.
mature-whores-naked-on-beach--picsThey were totally normal in the things they discussed although they and I were naked. I thought what a great sense of self confidence each person showed, especially the young woman. Perhaps that is what many people lack, the self confidence and positive self image to be themselves even when they are clothed. My children are grown now so my wife is much more accepting of my being naked around the house and in the yard. She smiles at me and recognizes that when I have been able to lie in the sun naked for an hour or so, I am so much more relaxed. She says, “If this is what it takes for you to be relaxed, I’m all for it”. This means that it’s o.k. for me to be naked and have no tan lines.
She does not particularly share my enthusiasm. For those of you who are easily able to be naked and free at home, the beach or the club, enjoy that freedom. Not all people are able to experience that degree of freedom and enjoy being comfortable in their own skin, whether they are naked alone or with others.

i have had many occassions when i have purposely chosen to be nude

Hi, I haven’t yet had the nudist experience which i would call my first time coming out to the world and saying hi i’m a nudist, but am only 18 so i guess i have plently of time to, howevermale-nudist and have really enjoyed it.

I have a fairly conservative upbringing however my parents view is basically that it is ok for people to see you nude, you should not be ashamedof your body, but you should be clothed pretty much all the time, besides changing, showering etc.
I have just in the last six months i have started sleeping nude, i have found it very confortable and clean and even sleep better, my parents have woken me up some morning, finding me nude, i used the excuses “i couldn’t find pj’s/boxers, hot night got really hot and itchy” etc, obviously i should have said, its more confortable, i sleep better, heaps of ppl do it, but being worried about their opinion of me i did not say the above.
About 3 months ago i went back to a mates house late one night with 3 girls and 4 guys (including me), all close firends, being summer we decided to go for a swim in his very warm pool. I guess the plan was to swim in underwear but two of the girls said they were not keen because they did not have bras on, because of the dresses they were wearing, My male mate said, ive got my boxers but am going in naked cause this is what im slepping in. A good excuse! and then my other mate said yeah im just going in in the nud, but you. One of my male mates got in (naked), the one of the girls suprisingly stripped down and dived in (she has a very relaxed personality). I having swimmed naked in my own pool did not feel to uncumfortable and dived in. One of the girls thought it was kind of funny and took her bra off and jumped in (leaving her bottom underwear on), followed by the other male (naked) and the last girl (in her underwear). It was great, there was lots of laughter at first and a bit of covering up,but soon everybody became more relaxed and we just talked normally and swum around for hours. Although i guess it was alcohol that played a part in people being so confident to just dive in, including me, it was a good chance and excuse to do it. But the best part was that it was non sexual, just a group of mates enjoying there company, naked, there was no questions asked or encouragement for the other two girls to strip fully, because it was an individual choice. Too often people think that once you have gotten naked it has to escalate to sex.
Another experience i had was in the country at our property, I was working out on the farm (middle of summer), and was extremly hot, there was no around the house, so i got nude and into the cold spa,put on the jets, this was a very relaxing experience. My dad appeared out of no where and was pleased to see me in the spa and then noticed my underwear realising that i had just jumped in. He having been also working thought it was a great idea and also got in, covering himself on the way in, and hiding under the bubbles. I was very pleased that he had done this, it seems that people are willing to go nude in some situations such as spaaing but not in the backyard, around the house, at the beach etc which is a shame. I hope to find another excuse to go nude and encourage people in my family to go nude.

The first time I was completely nude in public, with strangers

little-nudist-girlsThe first time I was completely nude in public, with strangers I did not know around, my husband and I were on vacation. We would wake up very early, before sunrise, in order to jog on the sandy beaches while they were still deserted.
We’d finished jogging on the beach, and stopped in a secluded cove close to the hotel. There, we took off our clothes and walked into the sea. At that time, 6.00 am, the beach was deserted, the sea, flat and cold. There was a big rock reef on the sand, 40 feet inland from the shoreline, where we left our clothes.
We were enjoying our early bath when we heard a shout. We looked up and what we saw was a multitude of people standing on the shoreline. Some of them were already in the water and coming toward us!
They were mostly teens, of both sexes, but mainly males. They had ridden bicycles from a nearby town, in order to spend a few days at the beach on their own. They had brought their food and they were going to camp among the trees along the beach. It was pretty obvious they were settling in to stay a good while.
We didn’t know what to do! The police made their rounds at 7:30 and we could be fined or even worse, arrested for our public nudity. Some of them came to us and as soon they realized I was naked, they got closer. They couldn’t believe it!
At first I was embarassed, but we began talking and the ice began to melt. One of them asked me if I was shy. I was, but I said “no”. He called to his buddies, “Hey, come and see this,” and more came. I found I was starting to enjoy it. Maybe I was the first woman they saw nude. I like to think so in my secret fantacies.
It was ten minutes before 7:00. We had been in the water a long time and we were cold. My nipples were erect and protruding. The group was waiting for us to leave the water. And we left. I’ll never forget the look of anticipation and awe I saw on their faces.
little-nudist-picsWhen I found myself standing on the sand, nude, in the front of them, my shyness flew away. They were admiring me… and I really enjoyed being nude for them!
We had time before the police came on their rounds to move into the trees and we stayed with them. No one got upset or angry. Nudity was something new to them and they were fascinated.
We talked standing, sitting and lying on the sand for a while, drying our bodies and taking sun. They asked a lot of questions: Where are you from? Where do you live? Are you shameless? Do you do this all the time? I was totally relaxed and I completely exposed my naked body to them.
One asked if he could take pictures and he did. He took pictures of the group, some of whom had shed their own clothing. He photographed my husband and I both alone and together. We gave him our postal address and money to send the pictures and we were pleasantly suprised when they actually arrived.
My first public total nudity was a beautiful experience… I will never forget it. We met the group again later that afternoon and stayed until sunset. The next morning my husband and I, nude, bathed, talked and joked with them again. The following morning when we got up, I was saddened to see they had gone.

I also had a few naked experiences while I was growing up

legal-nudist-picsI met my husband over 4 years ago. We have been married for over a year and a half. Hes always been interested in nudism. Hes been practicing it for quite a few years compared to me. I always got naked in my apartment after work or when I felt like I didnt want clothes to bind me.
I also had a few naked experiences while I was growing up, but I didnt really know what nudism was at that point. I met my husband and he was honest and upfront with me about being into nudism. I thought the idea sounded wonderful. I have to admit I was a little nervous about the whole thing when he and I first did it together. We always go to outdoor nature settings and go skinny dipping or hiking. I love the way the body feels when youre out of your clothes. It heightens your senses on a much deeper level.
It has also helped me with self esteem and body issues that I have had. One of my favorite experiences was when my husband and I went fishing down by the river nude. It came up a huge rainstorm, the water on my body felt wonderful. When the rain hit my body it was like no other feeling in the world. When I went on my first nude hike it was a feeling like no other. Just the feeling of the breeze as I walked hand in hand with my husband. The way the sun felt beating down on my skin was a whole new feeling.
It feels wonderful to be naked in places you wouldnt normally be. I was so nervous about getting caught, but I enjoyed it so much. I have no regrets. I love everything about nudism. Im actually going to meet other nudists in the near future with my husband. I have to admit that Im kinda nervous about it but excited at the same time.

I was a nudist when I was in my early teens

I’m Geoff from Australia. I’m 47 now, but I was a nudist when I was in my early teens, like you, realised that lady-naturists.
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!
latin-nudistsI 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!

today spent my first time on a nude beach today

I’m an early twenties, some-what attractive English male and today spent my first time on a nude beach today.
The beach was part of a larger clothing-required beach, but was segregated by a large stone embankment. Anyway the day before I’d seen it and thought ‘Why not? Can’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it. Get a bit of all over sunning’
So today at about noon I get to the beach in shirt and shorts. Absoultely terrified by this point I laid the towel, stipped off and sprayed up a bit. I’d brought a book to keep me distracted although I was slightly perplexed at how normal it all was. I was naked, and nobody cared! I immediately began feel disgust at the people who were walking through fully clothed to sneak a peek instead of walking around the accidental-pussy-showingembankment. One other thing I also noticed was the age/gender misbalance. Maybe I just wasn’t at the right place but the place was majoritively composed of males aged 30 and above. I was pretty certain I was the youngest there.
Anyway, through a combination of nerves and being surrounded by naked people a certain organ began to stir. Of course I lay on my stomach, but it would not go away. It wasn’t completely erect, but the sort of semi variety that, when lying on your back, it lays to rest facing upwards towards your stomach, instead of down towards the feet. After a while lying on my front I gave up the hope it would go away I turned over with it lying on my stomach, hoping nobody would complain. I just stuck to my book and ignored it and it did subside somewhat. Did I do the right thing there? I mean, at least I wasn’t flaunting it and hopefully it wpon’t occur if I visit again.
On that note, I’m not entirely sure if it’s my cup of tea. It may have just been the nerves of the concept, but once I was doing it I was pretty much fine. In future though I would like to take somebody with my instead of going on my own because I found the most comfort and relief was had when talking to others.
So in the end I think it’s a case of if it’s available I’ll do it, as I don’t see much point in getting tanlines and wet swimwear, but I don’t think I could subscribe to full time nudism.

Our first time at a nudist resort was so quiet and peaceful

I never thought I would never become a nudist nor I had ever thought about what it was like to be naked around others. That should change soon, when I married my husband. We had just built a new house and moved to the day after our wedding. 25That was 1980 and in the middle of August and hot. We were both 20 years old and did not know much about anything. We have both worked and went back to work right a way. No holiday in 1980 with 13 1 / 2% interest. So we would come home from work and without A / C in the house we would walk in through the laundry room and put our work clothes and go up naked to shower and cool down. We never thought anything about our new home naked. We started to sit around naked more and more, but once in a while my sister would be over, and without knocking would go in so we would go and dress. One day, asked “what’s that … a nudist colony? And for the first time made us wonder … we are to enjoy nudist cool in our own home? We soon realized, was that what we have, without realizing it.

This winter, a blazing hearth and the remaining at home we were talking about nude, when others are like us around our area. Not knowing how to find out, we went to a porn shop to see if everything was there in the periodicals. We really see anything that we ever interested, we finally asked the clerk, and he showed us a magazine with personal ads in it. There we found what sounded like a nudist and the writer allows us to address without the purchase of porn mag copy. We came home and wrote the pair immediately. We soon got a call from them, and we agreed to meet them the following weekend. We were nervous, but ready to meet them. It went very well and they gave us local places we could join.

30Our first time at a nudist resort was so quiet and peaceful. We were hooked and we both knew 100% sure we were nudists and when my sister came after that we no longer went for the clothes. We even invited her to a beach walk with us and they later found out it was naked, and clothed them remained but loved the idea, we were nudists and felt so free. She repeated this statement for years. It has to feel at ease to have their support, and if my mom found out she would take us from Kid nudist colonies.

It has a wonderful life for us. It is going to 28 years for us and only wish more people we said about nudism in the 80 years it would have spread faster with more help. Spread the good news to friends and family.

All nudists have faced that “moment of truth”

Pure ecstasy…

20Like the majority of folks researching nudism, I was driven through an unshakeable interest: What would it feel like to be nude outside and in the business of others? Would my nudity be uneasy or would it feel…good, natural? And the greatest issue of all: could I actually bring myself to drop my clothing and my inhibitions?

All nudists have faced that “moment of truth” when they could either get nude or stay cloaked in sorrow. In the event you are simply at a nudist resort, and everyone around you is nude, wearing clothing really makes you feel out of place, so maybe it’s somewhat simpler to “take the plunge.” Because it was clothes optional, I did not really have to be naked to fit in. I was hedging my bets, I think.

as soon as I arrived, I passed by the pool where a half dozen folks relaxed, some naked, others in swimsuits.

I used to not have to get nude. It will be totally okay for me to get some rays without getting an all over suntan. In that instant, I flashed forward to the last day and envisioned that I’d spent the whole holiday clothed. I envisioned a second on that final day when I might be alone in the pool and ultimately discover the nerve to slip out of my trunks and have the freedom that so many others had loved all week long. I figured that if I was fortunate, after more than eight days of choosing to stay clothed, I mightn’t even enjoy being naked…with the warm pool water and dazzling beams of the sun embracing my whole body. I understood it’d be fantastic.

So I got nude. And no one stared. No one laughed. Both other guys poolside just nodded hello, as well as the water rippled and the palm trees rustled and the sun warmed me. All over.

Sure, my heart raced for some time. I believed, “I can not believe I am doing this!” But it was not long before my interior monologue altered to: “I can not believe it took me 42 years to do this!” I really found myself feeling sorry for the two guys in trunks, as well as the smattering of others who’d spend the coming days still clothed.

Throughout that holiday I also went to a sunning pier where nudity was allowed. Not every nude body was perfect. Actually, none were. But I was learning that nudism is not about how you seem, it is about how you feel. Additionally , I went on a naked sailing and snorkeling experience. Absolute ecstasy.

The minutes since – shared with other people who’ve also found the delights of nudism – have been nothing short of amazing. Is not it time you set yourself free?

Do not Leave Planet World Without Attempting It!

13Maybe telling about my first encounter with bare diversion will lead you to that end. As we were leaving, I found the trip was to an isle with a nude beach! I made the decision to go anyhow, believing no manner was anybody getting me out of my suit. Why had not someone told me about this earlier? I was snared, and that was over 40 years past. The phrase, “bare when possible, clothed when practical,” definitely describes me.

I confess that my first reaction was that this is some thing that wasn’t an acceptable practice. I was oblivious that there are national organizations and didn’t understand anyone who could shed light on this particular relaxing lifestyle. The literature available now tells it like it’s. Everyone will say that once you’ve made your first visit, the sensation of dread will vanish. Until you experience a thing for yourself, words cannot let you know how you ought to feel or how you ought to act or respond. I am able to add an additional sentence of encouragement: Do Not leave Planet Earth without at least attempting this amazing manner of destressing and relaxing a opportunity.

I was raised in a house where nudity was no huge deal

5I was raised in a house where nudity was no huge deal. We sometimes would swim naked in our pretty private backyard, and nudity in the house was, although not supported, definitely not frowned on either.

As an adult there was never much chance to revisit those carefree moments of youth.

Eventually I was in that place immediately and took the chance to go to the shore before beginning my work day. I got to the shore sometime around 6 a.m. and the shore was abandoned and chilly. I sat in my clothing on the sand and watched the sun come up. About 7:30 it got warm enough to take my clothing away and appreciate the sun, the sound of the surf and the wind. By then several early risers had arrived at the shore, but it was still largely abandoned. I just had an hour or so on the shore before I needed to begin my day.

I loved the sense of being naked in nature so much that I went back to the shore after my appointments were completed and loved the remaining part of the day on the a lot more busy shore, watching the sun go down before I left. At no time did I feel uncomfortable being naked in the business of other naked people. Maybe becoming a little used to it in the morning before the crowds came helped a bit, but I consider that in case you approach nudism from the proper standpoint it isn’t a sexually charged encounter and so there’s actually nothing to be uncomfortable about. For those who have not attempted it yet, I’d encourage you to give it a try. Its certainly amazing.

I have since been back to the shore many times and joined a nonlanded club where we have been able to relish day trips to landed clubs in the region. It is all amazing but my favourite place continues to be the shore with its surf and sand!

12My whole adult life thus far has been subjected to rules made to stop embarrassment to the “business.” I have needed to play by everyone else’s rules. Well for the very first time I made the decision to take my first step of “liberty” and took a visit to Haulover Beach. WOW! What a awareness alleviation! How amazing it was to feel the sun on my whole body. Swimming in the ocean with no confinement of a swimsuit. So satisfying. I can not wait for my next visit. Sadly, here in Miami there are not any clothes discretionary communities, so I am planning a holiday to one in Central Florida. I can not wait.

I was told about naked camp. Was interested! Didn’t go the very first year but the next I did go. I love it so much that I do proudly say I’m a nudist!

Assurance

The possibility of seeing a nudist club fell into my lap out of the blue. We were only building up the camaraderie in those days. Shortly we got acquainted, then her mom mom asked me if I want to join her and Claudia over the weekend at a bare resort. I found myself saying YES.All she guided me was to feel friendly with everyone.

When we reached there, all I can say it was a bare woods, but very well kept.

Shortly they both got there, clothing away as if it was regular routine. I also needed to take off. I was shy a bit, but to my shock no one troubled to look at me. I was surprised to see nude ladies/ women playing volleyball, other sports and swimming with nude guys. Not only this but guys shooting pictures of their relatives in nude.

All I can declare is it was a greatest weekend I ever had. I felt healthy, and noticed that I ‘d acquired more self-assurance. We’ve made many friends there. I suggest to all or any individuals all over the world take a rest and provide your own life an opportunity to transform.

Greatest auto ride ever

It turned out to be a wonderful day. We were both simply enjoying the ride as well as the gorgeous landscape that was passing by and I began to get the sensation that I was wearing an excessive amount of clothes , and so I kicked off my shoes and got out of my top.

We drove along for a little while more and I began easing my trousers away. My wife looked at me and inquired, “what are you currently doing?” I told her I was becoming comfy.

It was amazing! My wife thought I was insane. I believe she still does but she’s stuck with me for nearly 20 years.

Now I understand that wasn’t a group nudist encounter but it absolutely was the very first time that I declared myself a man who likes to be nude. I do have to likewise include that that car ride was the greatest memory I have of that excursion.

My first experience as a nudist

107 108
My name is Elizabeth and I wanted to share my first nudist experience with the world and I thought that this might be the best place to do so. I wanted to share not just my story with you, but my first nude picture that was ever taken by someone else, outside. But the picture is just half the story and while I am sure that you will love the photo (how’s that for modesty?), I think that most of you will also like to hear how a girl like me, a shy girl that has never done anything crazy in her life, decided to take it all off and show the world her entire bod.
I was raised in a family that could perhaps best be described as a very conservative one. It is not like we’re some religious nuts or anything like that, but my parents both came from quite conservative families and they raised us like that as well. There was never talk about sex in our house, there was never talk of nudity, there was no HBO, stuff like that. This resulted in me becoming quite shy and quite to myself from the very beginning. It is not like I was a nun or anything like that, but flashing my boobs when I got drunk and stuff like that was never my thing. On the other hand, most of my friends were quit like that; the wonders of growing up in the 21st century, I guess.
Last year, we went on a vacation to Mexico, just like we did every year. We have been checking out all the hottest places in Mexico for a few years back and we had great time every single year. This year, we went to a place we have not been to before and it was the best year yet, for them because they could get drunk all the time and for me because I have discovered how great it is to swim and sunbathe in the nude.
Namely, due to the fact that I never could or wanted to drink as much as my friends, I always had the mornings to myself, mornings that I would usually spend on a beach, reading a book and relaxing like I never could when they were around. And this day, I overheard a nice Swedish couple from our hotel talking about going to a nudist beach nearby. They were in their forties and still quite attractive, her in particular. And then I did something I had never done before. I approached them in the lobby and asked them if I could hitch a ride with them. They were happy to help and we were there in less than half an hour.
It was the first time I went to a nudist beach and I really felt like fish out of water at first. All those naked people, so oblivious of the fact that they are naked, it was something else. The Swedish couple was also nude as soon as they reached the beach. She looked great. That is when I decided that I have nothing to be ashamed of and I took off my clothes as well. I never thought something simple like that can be so liberating. I felt like a whole new person by just taking off my bikini. The nice Swedish lady complimented me on my body and she recognized a first timer at once. She told me that I will want to have a photo of myself naked on a beach for the first time and she was not wrong. It is this photo.
Being nude was just so great. At first, you think like everyone is looking at you, but you soon realize that this is not the case. You are yourself, you are free and you are feeling things you never had before. I could feel the sun on my flesh like never before and the cool water and the breeze. I felt so naughty and so sexy like I had never felt before. It was more than great, it was life-changing. I will never forget my first time and now I have a photo to go with it. I hope you enjoy it.
