My first-time naked experience was when I had turned 23 and just moved to Monterey, CA for a new job. I was investigating the place prior to starting my job in several weeks, and also the previous Saturday had detected a nude beach along the Big Sur Coast and decided to go there the next week.
I arrived rather early in the early hours, made the half mile trek down to the nude section and found a good area about 20 yards down the shore from an elderly couple and also a young gentleman who were already down there. nudism photos was VERY nervous and decided I Had take it step by step. I laid out my towel and removed all but my t-shirt and boxer shorts and sat on my towel for a while attempting to work up the nerve. In the meantime, more people began to populate the shore and shortly there was a gentleman about my age just fifteen feet away from me laying out naked reading a novel.
Time passed and one hour in the shore and I still couldn’t get up the nerve. Finally the guy near me looks over at me, nods “hello” then asks me if I’d enjoy a cold beer. I accepted, and to my surprise he got up and hauled his towel and all his possessions right next to me, reached in his cooler, snatched a couple beers then introduced himself and handed me a beer. Among the first things he said was “This is your very first time at a nude beach, isn’t it?” I said yes and he immediately said there was no need to worry- no one was going to stare at me or do anything if I took off my shirt and boxers.
So, QUITE furtively off came my boxers but my top stayed on. He laughed and said “Now that was not so bad, was it?” I laughed and we continued to talk. Even though the boxers were now away, I was sitting up with my knees pulled tightly to my chest, arms wrapped around my legs. Eventually, I became more relaxed, stood up and took off my top then put back down, this time putting my legs out and leaning back, propped up on my elbows. Well, “it” occurred almost immediately and I promptly rolled over on my belly, just to hear a bit of a laugh and “Do Not worry- happened to me my first time too” from my new-found buddy.
Within a couple hours I was completely comfortable and was tossing around a frisbee, walking up and down the shore, and even got invited into a game of Scrabble by a nearby couple. Regrettably, the place where I worked in CA went out of business and I moved back to Michigan where nude beaches are non existent and anti-nudity laws are rigorously enforced on public lands. I actually wish there was a landed, private nude beach on Lake Michigan! I would be there every weekend!

A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE
My wife of 29 years died of cancer. She was raised strict Southern Baptist, so occasionally being naked at home was O.K., but she would have never considered social nudity.
A year after she died, I tried various things to get back into the social scene. Singles clubs were awkward, so I started taking short weekend excursions to get out of the home.
Any of these excursions found me near Panama City, Florida, about four hours from home. I’d seen the Baybares web site, so out of curiosity I phoned and asked if a single man would be admitted. When the pleasant sounding lady on the telephone welcomed me, I asked ways. The nerves grew as I found and proceeded along the sandy drive to the club. I almost turned around three times, but there was no place to turn without getting stuck in the sand. Afterward I came to the cable on the other side of the road that indicated the clubhouse entry where I was met by a cordial guy wearing a towel around his midsection. He let me in, showed me where to park and asked me to sign in at the clubhouse.
The nervousness escalated exponentially as I parked and started the walk to the clubhouse. There, by the pool was a lovely girl sunning totally bare. She flashed me a delightful smile, presented herself as Gloria and started to chat with me. I could not believe how relaxed she was, even though she was totally naked. I then carried on to sign in, pay my grounds fees, and be given a simple synopsis of the rules and etiquette of the club.
I returned to my car to undress. After taking a huge breath, I took off the last of my clothes. Then I turned around, in whole panic, but I was immediately met by a throng of nude individuals of all ages and body types welcoming me and encouraging me to play water volleyball and attend the potluck dinner that evening. They treated me like a long lost cousin who had returned home.
It turned out to be a fantastic weekend, plus it supplied just the closeness with friendly people that I needed so desperately at that point of my life. Gloria will never know what a wonderful gift her smile and friendly dialogue was to a solitary stranger. It gave me the courage to go back to my car, undress, and start the following chapter of my life as a nudist among a number of the friendliest, most welcoming men and women on the planet.
I remarried a year after and my new wife came to understand how important social nudity was to me. After a year of marriage she graciously decided to participate as well. She appreciates our trips to Cypress Cove when we can get away a couple of times every year.
My only regret is that I waited so long to discover the wonderful experience of social nudism and how friendly folks are at nudist clubs.
Nude at the beach
On Saturday, July 16th, I went to my first clothing-optional beach at Robert Moses State Park’s Lighthouse Beach. It was early and when I arrived, several people were already enjoying their nakedness.
I looked around and slipped off my top & shorts and in an instant, standing naked and appreciating it. Nobody stared or gawked and for the following three hours I loved the independence of no clothes. My only regret is that I was alone & had nobody to share my experience with. Maybe next time, I will have a guest join me
The only thing that troubled me
My first nudist experience was when my partner and I went with friends to Cypress Cove in Florida. Having lived in Fla many years, I was use to miniature swim wear and extreme sun. So that the transition to http://nudist-young.com and extreme sun was easy. That’s until I reached for my pocket-knife in my pocket. I used to not have one! Pocket that is. In the clothed world going without my knife I felt naked. Now without both my pockets and knife I was in a quandary. Luckily, I had a little satchel in my vehicle in which I could carry my wallet, knife, and reading material.
Once I had overcome my lack of pockets, the friendliness, ease, freedom, and openness in the resort made the weekend very gratifying. We have been back several times and I’m looking forward to our next trip there next week.
Our first experience being socially bare was in 1998. We had as often as possible been naked privately at home for a long time since the day we were wed but we had no idea what social nudism was about until we discovered it online. Being born again believers in God, we still felt that nudism was a right, great, and wholesome lifestyle. After more on-line study we were convinced that accurate nudism wasn’t about sex and we scheduled a visit to Pine Tree Resort, in Crownsville, MD.
After driving through the gate one Saturday morning in June, the sight of so many naked people was at first surreal. We checked in at the office, and were introduced to a nude host couple who’d give us a tour of the grounds. We undressed and toured the property. People were swimming, playing tennis, grilling and simply relaxing as at any resort in a park-like setting. There was an indoor and an outdoor pool, a hot tub, a hiking trail, snack bar, gift shop, etc.
It was our first time swimming nude, and we’ve never worn a swimsuit since that day. As the male half of this couple I can declare that there clearly was no embarrassment with an erection that I ‘d earlier concerns about. You’ll always have a towel as a back-up just in case. We have not seen that become an issue for anyone. The most difficult part of that first day nude was having to get dressed for the trip back home.
We now see White Tail Resort in Ivor, VA consistently, as it’s our favourite nudist resort. The people are extremely friendly there. White Tail is a family oriented resort attended by people of all ages. To be nude all weekend, and to awaken and walk outside bare in the morning and feel sunlight and also the atmosphere all over your naked body is pure bliss. We now holiday at nudist resorts virtually completely.
Our other favourite nudist resorts comprise Cedar Creek, Serendipity Park, Cypress Cove, and Lake Como. All these resorts are family oriented resorts and are recorded on the AANR site. We realize that we’re safer at a nudist resort than at a hotel. The easiness at a nudist resort is beyond any other we’ve ever experienced. The practice of social nudism has been a lifesaver as a result of strain relief we love while bare.
One day naked around other people loving life in this wholesome environment is similar to a week in a luxury clothed resort. For those who have not experienced social nudism then don’t deny yourself this experience. Nudism is a genuine retreat from the uptight and pretentious fabric society we live in. When we see individuals of all ages playing sports, having a meal together or just resting nude among friends, our only regret is the fact that we did not start this awesome lifestyle earlier.
