I for one hate to sunbathe,

naturist-fkkI for one hate to sunbathe, prefer reading, board games, spinning, weaving, real hiking, dancing, crocheting, swimming (not floating, which is just sunbathing on the water.) I prefer doing this in the shade. We have several wild and mostly private acres, and have plans to develop hiking trails through some of it. We will then have to deal with poachers and armed marijuana growers using the trails. No where is perfect! I am mostly nude in the house when it is warm enough. Lately, I have started being nude when certain select friends are here. I found I was uncomfortable being nude when the others were clothed, but I persevered and it got better. I think maybe that clothing optional is not easier than universal nudity for me. Really though, I just prefer doing anything in nature rather than ‘civilized’ when nude. Except for the thorns.

Has anyone here ever gotten so used to being nude at home that they forget when they are elsewhere? This just happened to me last weekend, we were working at a rendezvous (not a nudist venue) and a huge wind blew up during the night. I sat up in bed and started to crawl out of our tarp shelter to make sure everything in camp was buttoned down tight, and realized I was about to go out completely nude with other people all around me. Then I actually thought to myself, “this wind feels so good, do I risk it?” The answer was, of course, “No!” but the point is, I actually forgot about being nude in the first place. Anybody here done that?

Me (Idiot #1) the recently discovered nudist notices that the timer driven outdoor lights

mom-son-naked-beach-photosScene – October, early evening, sun just going down and about 70 degree’s. Me (Idiot #1) the recently discovered nudist notices that the timer driven outdoor lights didn’t go on because I had forgotten to reset it.

Hmm, timer is outside in front of the house in a surburban neighborhood, no fences anywhere and I live in a cul-de-sac. Hmmmmmmm, quick look, no one around…hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…neighbors right next to me are gone, neighbors across the way live in their back yard, and the other neighbors we don’t speak to…heck with it. It’s right outside the door, NO ONE is around I’ll just step outside real fast, change the timer and no harm done right? Right.

Open door, step though, close door because inside lights are on and I don’t want to provide a detailed shadow to my clueless(about my lifestyle anyway) neighbors. Adjust timer, lights will pop on in 5 min. Fantastic. Open the door…jiggle handle…jiggle handle furiously…invent swear words while feelings of overexposure set in.

Quickly look around while trying to remember if we actually bought the spare key and had the presence of mind to set in outside somewhere for similar, but clothed emergencies. NOPE! Still on the counter. Fantastic. Quick mental review of open doors…back door, open…no fence surban setting, (did I mention I lived on the corner of the cul-de-sac?) to far to walk, garage car door closed but for some reason, walk thru is cracked open.

The garage door is open. Fantastic. I’ll just quicly walk over that way and AS I TURN AROUND, my next door neighbors drive up in the van AND my neighbors across the way who live in their back yard walk by on the sidewalk with their dog.

Fantastic. “Um….hi?” said while doing my best run while not running into the open garage.

Nobility is not a birthright, it is defined by one’s actions.

We are interested in joining a local nudist resort

naturist-fkkMy wife and I are both 39 with 17yo boy and 16yo girl. We are interested in joining a local nudist resort but are somewhat worried about their ages and thoughts.

I frequented nude beaches, bare bun fun runs, clothing optional hot springs and swims on my own from 18-22, when I met my soon to be wife. She was raised very conservatively. At 24 I talked her going to a couple places, and she was surprised to like it. At 23 we had our boy and we both got too busy to go. At 31 9/11 happened and we decided to enjoy life. We went to hot springs on own and enjoyed it still. So we have taken the kids twice a summer since then. At their ages they jet followed parents. But where we go is quiet, it has often been just family for some of the time. When others are there, everything has gone smoothly. Kids love it and dont even think of it as odd, they are below the water much of tye time. This summer they will be older – 17 boy and 16 girl. By
only do we plan to go to hot springs this summer, wife and I are talking about jointing a club just she and I go to once a year together. She is worried our boy will feel strange and get erections. I told her that nudists don’t get erections because naturism is not about sex. I have never seen an erection at a nudist place. Of course I don’t go often. I have been doing some research, not much, and have read that erections do in fAct occur quite routinely. I would like to know if this is in fact true. Young boys? Teens? Men? I can in understand in teens but I never even got close to one so I am surprised even disappinted. I liked how innocent the places seem. Again I told the wife that they don’t happen and she has no reason to think I’m wrong since she never saw one while there. By the way I am worried that our boy might be susseptable to erections sine last summer he got one at the hot springs for the first time. He wispered it to me when I asked him to help me start lunch so I let him stay in water until it went away. I never told my wife. I just figured it may have been the warm water creating the erection as that has happened to me, but at my age, I can control it better. It may have instead been the older teenagers in the next pool over.

So I guess what I am asking long windedly is what are the chances a 17yo will get an erection in public? A 39yo? What’s the best way to ask them to join mom and dad in this lifestyle, or do we just drag them there whether they like it fully or not and say it’s an adult decision, kids don’t vote? Will it be more difficult on tye girl than the boy? Thanks! Any suggestions are apreciated!
