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!


I have been attending clothing-optional pagan gatherings for . While a few individuals go nude all the time (and nearly everyone skinny dips in the pool), plus a sizable minority of girls go topless, many the folks remain completely dressed. While nudity is taken at these events, the few full time nudists undoubtedly stand out as a tiny minority.

Now, I Have always loved being naked. I’ve been been a secret naturist since I was a kid, a home nudist since college, and also a social nudist for about 5 years now. I have gone on nude hikes and canoes trips with my nudist club, where we have encountered cloths. And I’ve been going to pagan gatherings for 20 years, and have consistently skinny dipped in the pool.

That is because when I do, I am often the only person bare in my local area.

Even now, after several years of going skyclad as much as weather allows, I still need to work up some boldness to do it when 95% of the folks around me are wearing something. It’s totally distinct from the feeling of naturalness in being bare at at nudist club.

In fact, I’ve just had negative reactions once – from pagans who came from a different nation where garments are definitely NOT discretionary, even at pagan events. Everyone else has ever been accepting. Many individuals never appear to even notice that I am bare (though I know they do) – and the few that do mention it are consistently positive. (Though occasionally jokingly. When I came out of the non-CO dining hall once and did not take off my pareo instantaneously, one friend asked if I was ok or not ).

When I go skyclad at assemblies, I quickly become comfortable about being naked among cloths. But I am always aware that I’m in an extremely small -and exceptionally visible! – minority.

Nevertheless, I always work up that boldness, if only as a point of honor. I’m one of the few actively nudist pagans at my local parties, and I’d like to supply moral support for other people that may want to try it also – but like me, do not want to be alone.

Many years back, I observed the few consistently-skyclad pagans at assemblies, and wished I was courageous enough to join them. It took many years, but eventually, I did. I think that I ‘d be neglecting them if I did not continue their tradition.

And maybe, with luck, I’ll inspire others to become nudists, just as they inspired me.

My first at home nudist encounter was when i was about 13 and my parents had gone

out leaving me home alone for the first time. I remember seeing something about nudism on the web and really thought had give it a go at home. I had consistently been more likely run around bare, and in my family it was no huge deal to go from the shower to your room nude. But this was the very first time i was nude all around the home. It felt weird at first but soon i got used to it, and pretty much did it every chance i got.
My first public bare experience was last year at playalinda beach in florida. I ‘d never been to a nudist area before cause I never actually had the chance. as soon as I went to school, there were no nudist areas near so I never got to go then. Afterward when I input the actual word I ‘ve had many chances to really go to White tail park over the years, but have never had the guts to go. I’ve been afraid that I’d be bored and I have heard the owners can be a bit excentric to single guys.
So a nude beach when I went to florida last year was the first chance to go in a public setting. I figured that if I didnt enjoy it I’d just leave cause it doesnt cost any money of course. So, I went and it absolutely was brilliant. I had a great time… i was somewhat nervous at first, spent alot of time on my towel. But eventually I overcame the anxiety and relaxed and had a great time. I never wanted to leave.
So I guess both my experiences were very positive. I expect to get to WTP sometime this year, to experience a club type setting.

Hi, I have not yet had the nudist experience which I would call my first time coming out to the world and saying hi

I’m a nudist, but am only 18 so I estimate I ‘ve plently of time to, however I have had many occassions when I have purposely chosen to be naked and have really loved it.

I got a fairly conservative upbringing however my parents view is basically that it’s okay for individuals to see you nude, you shouldn’t be ashamedof your body, but you should be clothed pretty much all of the time, besides changing, showering etc.
I’ve only in the past six months I’ve started sleeping bare, I’ve found it very confortable and clean and even sleep better, my parents have woken me up some morning, finding me nude, I used the justifications “i couldn’t find pj’s/boxers, hot nighttime got really hot and itchy” etc, obviously I should have said, its more confortable, I sleep better, heaps of ppl do it, but being worried about their view of me I did not say the above.
About 3 months ago I went back to a mates house late one night with 3 women and 4 men (including me), all close firends, being summer we decided to go for a swim in his quite warm pool. I guess the strategy was to swim in panties but two of the girls said they weren’t keen because they didn’t have bras on, because of the dresses they were wearing, My male mate said, ive got my boxers but am going in naked cause this is what im slepping in. A good reason! and then my other mate said yeah im only going in in the nud, but you. of my male friends got in (nude), the one of the girls suprisingly stripped down and dived in (she has a really relaxed character). I having swimmed nude in my very own pool didn’t feel to uncumfortable and dived in. Among the girls thought it was kind of funny and took her bra off and jumped in (leaving her bottom underwear on), followed by the other male (naked) and the past girl (in her knickers). It was great, there was tons of laughter at first and a bit of covering up,but shortly everybody became more relaxed and we only spoke normally and swum around for hours. Although I estimate it was alcohol that played a part in folks being so confident to merely dive in, including me, it turned out to be a good chance and excuse to do it. Too often people think that once you’ve gotten nude it has to escalate to sex.
Another experience I had was in the nation at our property, I was working out on the farm (middle of summer), and was extremly hot, there was no about the house, so I got naked and in the chilly hot tub,put on the jets, this proved to be a very relaxing experience. My dad appeared out of no where and was pleased to see me in the spa and then found my underwear realising that I had just jumped in. He having been also working thought it was a fantastic idea as well as got in, covering himself on the way in, and hiding under the bubbles. I was very pleased that he had done this, it seems that folks will willingly go bare in certain scenarios such as spaaing but not in the backyard, around the home, in the seashore etc which is a pity. I am hoping to find another reason to go naked and support men and women in my family to go bare.

Well yesterday I finally had the opportunity to bare the nat- ural, and walk into the sun.

To swim carefree in this world. in para- dice.
The shores in the sun. The feeling of the air on my body and the coolness of the clear clean salt waters of the carabean ocean were beyond words. to walk in the most natural and free manner possible, like it was supposed to be be. Without a spirit to attention. their were hundreds others around
However they also were swimming carefree in this amazing place, observing schools of fish swim by, and speaking to every other like they were best friends. Others were outside walking on the fine white sands of the beach. We were speaking and unashamed, floating and swimming easily in the lovely blue waters of the bay, the sun warming us with its intense life giving rays from above. Gone were the problems I’ve had in days gone by using a swimsuit filling up with air and sand and binding in the worst potential of manners. It was amazing not to need to sit in a soggy swimsuit for a change. Walking down the beach could not have been easier because even though we all seemed a little different, we were all really the same, with no racial, social or sexual hurdles to beat.
My wife on the other hand was a little uncomfortable to say the least. In my heart I know she would have loved it if she would have attempted it, but there were too many dilemmas for her to beat before she could vindicate shedding her body armor. If you like you could blame it on age, you can blame it on her self image. You could say it’s the taboos someone has drilled into her head for years, the body is awful, and seeing it is a sin,or something. ( I do not actually know anywhere that this is backed up by facts!)
You could say she is a little set in My first experience was at a club in South Carolina. I told my wife we were going to attempt something different and I told her about my ides. She was not actually convinced I ‘d go through with it but her doubts were erased when we pulled into the gate with our camper. I was able to easily adapt to this new recreation but my wife was more apprehensive. She did engage in the nude activities but she was quite reserved and not too talkative which is uncommon for her. I thought that she had warmed up to to it by the next day but after I learned that she was prepared to leave when the time arrived.
As for me, the experience was profound. I had one of the top experiences of my life. I particularly loved the swimming and relaxing by the pool. Usually, I get antsy when I hang out by a pool for a few hours and I’m ready to go a do something different but being by the pool naked was so relaxing that I would have stayed for a week if time had permitted. Following the experience, I was prepared to go again but my wife did not share . She was glad she went but would favor that she never go again.

We’ve been 2 times since then but she kept to herself and didn’t participate with others whatsoever. To me, the most entertaining of all is having the ability to talk with like minded folks and simply enjoy the organization of other people doing the same things I like to do.
I still very much appreciate being bare in a social setting but my wife doesn’t like it and wishes I would just give it up. I keep expecting that things will change but for now, I a grab the chance to enjoy some nude recreation whenever my wife is away (which isn’t frequently) or I can spend just a couple hours AWOL when she is occupied with a wedding shower or some sort of “girl” occasion. I keep expecting that one day she will change her mind and be more receptive to this but for now, am just considering it slow.ways or a little hard headed. You could say she only thought nude was primitive and lewd, and always sexual in content. I have to acknowledge I believe that it’s a shame that 90% of the worlds people are driven by these same miss guided principles. I think I am blessed to join the 10% or so who may be a little more open to these not so new ideas.
The Natural One

I thought I’d share my newbie first encounter, only had it this weekend in fact!

I love being nude, and have been interested in trying it in a social setting for a while.
My uncle I would like to use his place at the Delaware shore over Thanksgiving (freezing cold, but it is get away, and not crowded this time of year), so me and 3 friends headed down late Thanksgiving night. The following morning the other 3 were up before I was, and they were in the kitchen, making breakfast, having coffee. I sleep naked, and was about to place something on to go down and join them. Then I thought about all the stories I’ve read on here, about just “going for it” and striving nudism. So I thought, what the heck? They are my guests, they’re my buddies, why don’t you just go in there as I am? I walked in, and got many gasps and chuckles from my buddies. told them that I sleep naked, I was about to go take a shower anyway, so why put something on merely to subsequently take it right back off? I did include that if they were uncomfortable, I really could set something on. All 3 said they did not care, but they were still a but taken back. A brief discussion then ensued about sleeping bare, and all 3 confessed that they slept in the nude some times too. One of my friends even admitted that she and her boyfriend had once gone to a nude beach in the Exubas. That sort of cut the tension, along with the consensus was that me being nude was no big deal if that was how I was comfortable. It felt so good to simply be there, in a natural state, and to be accepted and not have to be worried about covering up.
After that day (which was yesterday), We decided to get in the hot tub. I said I was going in bare, the others could do as they pleased. My one buddy who had been to a nude beach decided she’d go in naked as well, the other two wore suits. After about 20 minutes, they each got topless, and about 20 minutes after that, lost the bottoms as well. The whole rest of the evening, we all stayed bare – made dinner, watched some pictures, just had fun. It felt so amazing to simply shed the restrictions that garments give, and just have relax with friends. It made the entire night much more pleasurable for all. I can certainly say all 4 of us are hooked.
This morning we needed to leave, but we all agreed we were going to get into the nudist lifestyle more. Who understands how this will go (i.e. where we will do it, do we bring in b/f’s, etc.), but I could not be happier!
So that is my story – maybe a little lame for you all, but I was just dying to share it with someone, so I decided all of you folks to share with
Peace and Hugs,
