Two first encounters

I started loving nudism by sleeping in the nude. Afterwards I started to do my work round the house nude. My wife was surprised when I came downstairs nude one day and I could tell her reluctance.

As it was mid-evening there were very few folks in the beech so it managed to locate a secluded place. I walked into the lake and when torso deeply took off my swimsuit. Before I walked out of the water, so as to not offend anyone, I put the suit back on. I’ll never forget the feeling of the very first time bare in Lake Michigan.

Towards the end of summer I walked from the lake into the dunes. I removed my swimsuit and was bare outside, other than my backyard, for the very first time. I remember thinking to myself that I’m a “nudist.”

After hiking in the dunes several times but concerned about clothed hikers I decided on trying a nudist club.

Being at a club, it does not matter if someone is naked or not. YOU will be nude and enjoy. I just wish I’d have started this earlier.

Everything I Thought It Would Be

After discussing a visit to Gunnison Beach here in NJ, my wife and I decided to make the excursion. We were both conscious that it was ‘clothes optional’ and I knew that most folks would be nude, but I think my wife believed it’d be a 50-50 split (naked, partially nude).

When we got there she was a bit overwhelmed. She didn’t take her suit off at all. Nevertheless, after a while of sitting in our seats and watching the scenery, I felt I could take the following step. I asked my wife if she thought it was OK, and she looked at me with a look that said, “are you mad?” But she afterward said, “sure, do it.”

And guess what? Nothing occurred. No quake. Nothing. Everyone went about their business.

I, however, loved this new feeling…sitting in the sun, wind blowing…it was extremely refreshing and freeing. I adored it. After a few beers, I asked my wife if she needed to walk to the water with me. Again, she looked at me with a look that said, “are you insane?”

I mentioned, “why not.” So, at first she did not need to go, but after a second she said certain. That was quite intimidating. I’m walking in my birthday suit through dozens of men and women.

Anyway, the water was amazing. Swimming sans clothes was a first for me also…and it was another great experience. I made the walk from our seats to the water 3 or 4 times, each time enjoying it increasingly more.

I’d love to go back and try it again. My wife is now talking about going back and removing her top. Hey, whatever makes her comfy. We’ll see the way that it goes.

Our Nude Adventure

When I was a boy the words “naked” or “nude” weren’t part of my family’s vocabulary. The sole nudity we understood began with your shower, and finished as soon as you could grab your towel. We were never even permitted to wear sandals or flip-flops. Being naked was never an option.

As always, life goes on. College, work, marriage, children, divorce; all flew by in what appeared to be a brief period of time. With the start of the Internet I found out about this thing call “social nudism.” I was intrigued and also the notion grew slowly that I’d like to take part in this nude experience. After my divorce, I began to sleep in the nude, which I found to really be much more comfortable than wearing pajamas.

Following the kids moved out to begin their very own families, we began to be much freer with our clothing at home and we talked regularly about nudity and whether it was right or wrong according to Biblical standards. As Christians we needed to do the right thing. Assessment of the Scriptures led us to the conclusion that merely being naked, and being naked with others was not in conflict with our Bible. We began to be nude at home increasingly more. We still had not been able to go anywhere that allowed nudity.

Ultimately we had our opportunity one winter when we were on a Caribbean cruise. The ship docked in Jamaica. I ‘d already found out that we could get day passes at a resort that had an Au Natural island. They needed to show us round the resort but astonishingly my wife would not have anything to do with this type of tour. She needed to get out to the island when possible. I couldn’t concur more. As soon as we arrived, we located two lounge chairs in a sunny location. We had our clothes off in the blink of an eye. Like many others have said, it was so good to be naked. We spoke to some of the other guests and we loved our time there so much we really hated to leave. Being naked on the isle was so natural and easy. We were hooked!

This summer we have traveled to three nudist clubs/resorts. We’d so much fun. My partner and I agreed that we should have done this sooner! Why did we wait so long?

My lovely wife and I frequently holiday in Michigan. We are household nudists for the past six months. By this I mean that we were remaining nude occasionally after a shower and then we started being naked before bedtime. We drink coffee and eat lunch nude.

My wife was reluctant but she concurred that there was no damage since we have been married more than 35 years. This summer we went north and found a disjunct alone shore in northern Michigan. We walked for miles to locate a peaceful spot to read and sunbathe. Most beaches in Michigan are full of noisy children and furious parents. We just wanted seclusion to find some peace and relish the sunlight.

However, I went swimming after an hour of sun and my swimsuit got too wet to lay back on my towel , and so I took it off. My wife, who is awfully shy and incredibly spiritual was disturbed that we might be detained for my nakedness. We’re conservative Republicans and we don’t condone criminal actions.

She was getting hot and after much whining she also carried of her swimsuit and went for a dip in the lake. I do not understand why being nude is a crime if you have a designated location where it could be authorized to be without your clothes. Anyway we’ll begin writing our representatives to alter the laws in the Michigan National Lakeshore in order that people do not have to feel like criminals if they violate no one.

We have to modify the perception that nakedness is a offense that should be penalized by the law. A lewd act should be punished but a nude body isn’t a reason to be arrested or punished.

Allow the Adventure Begin!

I have always found it fascinating how different people define their “first time” nudist encounter. While the first social nudist encounter is a significant occasion, I truly consider two “first times” when I think of my nudist life.

First, is the conscious decision to adopt nudism as part of who I am as a person — to buck societal norms, to accept something some others see as odd. From my first age, I’ve always loved being naked. Nevertheless, I was far from open about it, keeping it hidden, keeping it to myself, and like many more, only spending time bare when alone. Why? Panic. Anxiety about ridicule, embarrassment, and not being who others desired me to be.

Additionally, there was a certain level of self doubt that perhaps my nudist hobby was “a bit odd.” Maybe it was merely a phase. It was not until early maturity that I eventually said, nope, this isn’t bizarre, it isn’t a phase — it’s pure, it’s wholesome, it is genuine, it is interesting, and it is amazing. More to the point, it’s part of me. I’m of that conclusion. It’s an achievement every nudist or naturist shares.

My first “social” encounter was not at a club or a beach or anything like that. It was in my dwelling. It was the night I got up the nerve, turned to my wife and said, “I believe I Had like to be naked around the home occasionally…..just because I enjoy it. Will that freak out?” Clearly, she understood I certainly appreciated being naked, but I had never sought out time to be bare only for the pure enjoyment of it. Obviously, she didn’t mind. I will never forget the exhilaration of walking into our living room, just moments after, entirely bare.

Since that time, I’ve had many “nude adventures.” As much as I cherish each if them, they all go back to the day I first decided nudism was really going to be a part of my entire life as well as the night I shared it with the love of my life. I am a better person for it — happier, more understanding, more accepting. I’m happy to say I have not looked back!
