This might appear a little peculiar, but I first got interested in nudism once I was about ten years old. I read the Adam & Eve story and wondered what it’d be like to be nude outside. So I went out to a patch of woods near our home and took off my clothing.
It felt great with the sunlight and atmosphere on my naked body. I was hooked from then on.I still go for walks in the woods for a naked hike. I started going to a nudist camp in southwest PA called White Thorn Lodge. I am intending to join WhiteThorn Lodge this year.
I additionally have being to Avalon Resort in WV.They have a nude bike show there in the summertime. It is almost always a good time.

Frightened, But For What?
Every summer from my late 20s to 30s I ‘d go to the office of Goodland in Hackettstown, NJ and ask all kinds of questions and chicken out and go home. Finally the year that I turned 40 I got brave enough to actually enter the gate and figure out what I was missing.
When I disrobed in the parking lot I felt completely relaxed. This is actually the very first time which I went into the pool and let the suns rays dry me and felt the breeze lightly caress my whole body. The feeling was quite refreshing.
Now I go to Rock Lodge with my fiance. Rock Lodge was her first encounter. At Rock Lodge I experienced two firsts. It was the very first time that I walked in the rain bare and I also had the opportunity to drive my car that way too. We locate the people there to be somewhat friendly and we feel very relaxed there.
What I was afraid of I will never understand but I am glad I took that first step several years past.
Proud To Be an Advocate
Having been subjected to nudist magazines as a young child, I included the pleasure of being nude. It was not until I went off to college that I was able to truly join a club in Spokane, WA. What a delight having the ability to be with other like-minded people of all ages. Upon moving to Seattle I had the opportunity to join another club in which I attended monthly swims.
While I’m kind of remote from the west side clubs and resorts here in Oregon, I more than ever dedicated to the nudist lifestyle and promote it every chance I get with relatives and buddies. I can not think of a better way to spend time residence or when the weather is nice outside. When you have tried it, you will never look back.
How My Wife Became a Nudist
I met my wife in 1961. We were married in 1963. I was hired by TWA in 1966. I selected San Francisco as my domicile. When we moved to California, we lived with Sharon’s mum until we found an apartment. We were hired to manage the building we lived in.
About 1968 we were listening to a radio show. The subject of the show was free beaches. I knew what they were but Sharon didn’t have a clue. I ‘d not brought up nudism with her since I had a poor encounter with a previous girlfriend I tried to introduce to nudism.
Sharon asked (in a kidding way,)”you would like to check that out, do not you?”
http://nudiststeen.com said, “Sure!” She said not without her! I said, “Great!, let’s do it!” The following week the show had people from nudist resorts talking about national bare weekend.
The host asked why folks would go to a resort and pay earth fees when they could go to the free beaches. They gave several great reasons. Sharon said the resorts sounded better and if we go we’ll go there. I asked her if she needed to visit Santa Cruz. We put on suits, short pants and t shirts. On the way I pulled off to a side road. Sharon inquired where I was going; I said it was a surprise. When I pulled in to a drive, she inquired again.
I told her it was a spot we heard about on the radio. She was uneasy. I said since we were here let’s take the tour, that we did not have to stay. We took the tour, the guide said if we wanted to remain drive in, take our clothes off and enjoy! I managed to talk her into remaining a half hour.
She asked if we had to get nude right away. She said no, get comfortable, than get bare. We drove in, I got nude, but Sharon didn’t right away. It took her no time to take all her clothes away. She said she felt out of place with her clothes on.
We were nudists until she got cancer. Sharon passed away 9/11/2001. Not a good day! I resumed nudism after her departure.
My First Bare Experience
It absolutely was May 1960, I was a student at U of Ill.in Champaign. I ‘d been reading nudist magazines since I was in http://beach-photos.com , beginning about 1950. At first I looked at the images, but after becoming bored I started to read the magazines. I decided that someday I’d prefer to be a nudist.
I joined the Air Force after I graduated from high school. I continued to buy magazines while in the A.F. but at that time the law occasionally raided the nudist camps so I never tried to go. I was now free to go and I was in comfortable driving distance to a nudist camp, Zoro Nature Park.
I drove to the camp. When I arrived the woman in the gate asked if I had written to get permission to go to. I said no. She called the owner, Alois Knapp. He came to the gate, asked me if I was a nudist and how I knew about Zoro. I told him I ‘d been reading nudist magazines for several years and needed to be a nudist.
He let me go in the camp for the day but asked me if I had a girlfriend. I said yes, but she was at school in Rock Island, Ill. He said to bring her next time that I came. I said I’d attempt. Following the spring session was over we both went home and resumed relationship. In about three weeks I requested Josie to go with me to this camp I had seen in Indiana. I told her it was a real nice spot, the folks were nice and friendly, there was a pond to swim in, volleyball courts, etc. I said I thought she would appreciate it.
She asked me what was this “nature park.” I told her there were trails through the woods. She kept asking for more information and I eventually told her we could go skinny dipping in the pond.
When she heard that she inquired if this place was a nudist colony.
In those days there was no Internet for advice so I had nothing to direct me to explain nudism to her. She called me a pervert, slapped my face and broke our relationship. Gee, I wish I’d understood the best way to clarify nudism to her before asking her to join me for that trip to Zoro!
