I 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?
