OMG i cannot believe i finally did it

nudist-girls-familyOMG i cannot believe i finally did it. After many years of me being a home nudist, i finally had the courage to share my lifestyle with some friends of mine. Last night, my next door neighbors invited my wife and i over at 10pm for a little impromptu get together. We have been neighbors for 2 years now but never had a sit down and get to know you session so we decided to do just that. It was great. Just sitting around shooting the breeze and getting to know each other just a little better. During our discussion, my wife brings up the fact that i am going to be doing the Fremont summer solstice bike ride this year. It was a great way to break the ice about my feelings towards nudity. We have a hot tub that can been seen by the neighbor’s back window if they look hard enough and I have always been worried that they might be offended if they were to ever look out the window and see me sitting in my tub naked (which i do on a daily basis). So during our discussions, I ask them if they are offended by nudity and if they have any issues with me being nude in my back yard. They were totally cool with it and told me they have never noticed me.
Long story short, we decide to move our get together to the hot tub. We joked around about whether or not i would wear a suit and from our talk i got the impression that they would be totally fine if i didnt. So i took the first step and went o-natural. It was fantastic and they were totally ok with it. I did nothing to push them into doing it and I was the only one who chose to do so. I cannot believe I actually took that step and was accepted for who i am. We had a great experience and gained some new friends.
If this occasion has taught me anything, it has taught me that I can be accepted for who i choose to be and that there are people out there who may not choose to live the nudist lifestyle but are willing to accept those who do. What a great time and great experience.

but it felt great to be outdoors in the nude

I think I’ve been couped up too long this winter. All I can think about now that the weather is warmer is getting outside. Since my last adventure, I started thinking more about how quiet it is around here at 2 am. I’ve worked shift work before and I know that there could be others awake at 2 am because they may have just got home from work. Not wanting to get caught but enjoying the outdoors…at least until I can get to Gunnison or when MARNA starts their outdoor swims…I need to do what I can. Well…there is this park that is part of the apartment complex…it’s about a 1/2 mile walk…and before you ask…I did not try to walk it in the nude. Remember…this topic is about brave…not stupid. I had checked it out a few days ago and some of the lights are out, so there are a few patches of dark area…so I thought, why not? This time I actually set my alarm last night for 2 am (must be crazy), got dressed and walked to the park. One of the dark areas was around the swing set, jungle jim etc… No apartments close by, good visibility of viewing anyone approaching on foot or by car because they would have to be in the lighted areas first. Saw no one around so I stripped down. A little cool and windy last night, but it felt great to be outdoors in the nude. Since I only wanted to be out for about a 1/2 hour…after all I need my beauty sleep. I could only enjoy for about 5 min. or so as it took me about 10 min. to walk the distance to the park. There was more to explore, so I’m actually thinking of going back tonight…but driving over (clothed), and that would give me about 20 min. at the park…and it is a warmer night and less windy. I’m going to be a tired puppy tomorrow…but I’ll let you know how it goes.

When I was like 18 I had started seeing this girl who lived in an apt with her mother

all-nudist-family-girls-onlyWhen I was like 18 I had started seeing this girl who lived in an apt with her mother. After dinner and a movie we headed back to her place and we walked into the living room only to find her naked mother sleeping on the couch. She had thought that her mother would still be at work only to find that Mom only worked a half shift that day, had come home, stripped naked, had a few glasses of wine and fallen asleep watching TV. She gets up drunk and disoriented from sleep and just matter of factly introduces herself to me. I’m figuring that since it’s just her and the daughter living there nudity might be cool between them but she probably isn’t OK with some strange boy seeing her naked and might flip out once she wakes up a bit more and realizes that she’s naked. I start trying to develop an interest in looking at the wall next to me and apologize to her while my date says “she doesn’t care” and starts laughing at me. Turns out they were nudists; at the time I had never been to a nudist place or been naked infront of many people at all. After that we ended up all being naked at their apt a lot.

Another time I was at home in the afternoon and my roommates were both at work. I decided to clean my bathroom and take a shower. I always clean the bathroom nude so I don’t have to worry about getting water or cleaning chemicals on my clothes. I go to the kitchen to get the mop and bucket and on the way back I come around the corner only to be face to face with my roommate’s GF, who had stayed over the previous night and had been in his room. We both apologized, thinking that we might have offended the other and quickly laughed about it when we realized that she wasn’t offended by my nudity and I wasn’t offended by her having seen mine.

Meet my girl Vasiliska

nudist-girls-beauty-contestsHi, my name is Britney and I am lesbian. It does not really have anything to do with this story other than I was really prepared for a girl like this. Her name is Vasiliska. She is Russian. But I am getting ahead of myself. There is more to this story and I really wanted to share it with you. For one, this was the first time I ever went to a nudist beach, which is an experience in itself and this was also the day I met this gorgeous girl from Russia, so beautiful and so sexy that I never thought I would meet anyone like that on vacation.
It was last year and this was the first time I went to Europe. Me and a couple of my friends went on a month-long vacation visiting Spain, France and Italy. We were checking out some of the most beautiful cities in the world and also some of the greatest beaches that I have ever seen in my life. And it was great. It was a real great vacation meeting new people, getting wasted all over the place and so on. If you were to put a gun to my head and ask me which of the countries is the greatest and where we had the best time, I couldn’t tell you. They were all great and we met so many great people that I just couldn’t give you one. However, there is something that happened in France that made it my favorite part of the trip and that is the girl in this picture, Vasiliska.
We met at a bar there, one of the biggest places for young tourists and locals alike in Marseille which is an insanely interesting and wild town. She was there with some friends of hers as well, most of them Russians who studied in France and who were also on vacation. Let’s just say that it was a wild night. And if there is anyone who knows how to party, then it’s the Russians. I mean, these were all girls who were barely legal, like my Vasiliska here, barely 19 and already crazy as hell, being able to drink gallons of booze without even getting tipsy. When I met her, I knew she was something special and the next day I realized how special she is really. Namely, that night, we agreed that the two of us, just the two of us are going to go to a beach together.
I met her the next day, still hungover like hell and she was looking like she just had the most refreshing night ever after a night at the opera. I will never be able to understand those Russians. In any case, she told me that we were going to a nudist beach and I played it cool. I said alright. I didn’t want to let her know how nervous I was. And we went. It was a bit out of time, but she had rented a car and we were there in less than an hour.
We got to the beach and there were perhaps a dozen people there, not more. They were mostly locals, a couple of families and two or three couples. It was quiet and it was romantic. And then Vasiliska took off her clothes. I was lost for words. First of all, she had the most beautiful skin I had seen in my life, so creamy and so fresh I almost came. She was also totally shaven and had the most delicious-looking pussy I had seen to that point. And her boobs, they were just perfect. They were so supple and so perky that I just wanted to bury my head in them. But I managed to keep my cool. I asked her if I could take a photo of her and she told me that I could. And that is the photo you can see here. Oh yeah, she also had those nipple rings that I always thought were just too tacky. Not on Vasiliska. She looked so beautiful that I just feel in love with her there and then.

Asked them if we could all take a picture together.

nudist-family-pictureI went to a nude beach for the first time two weeks ago in CA. (Black’s Beach) I was alone, and as a guy, was a bit concerned about seeming like a perv and not wanting to be gawked at by gay guys. So I chose a spot on the beach seemed relatively safe. Not completely isolated, but not near anyone. Well, after I worked up the nerve to shed my clothes, it felt great. Especially when I went in the water.

So as my nervousness was subsiding, I just had fun swimming and enjoying the water. After a few minutes I realized there were two nude young women nearby, who came down to the water after me. (Mostly I realized this because suddenly there were 5 or 6 guys flocking the area too. What the heck?!) I was a little annoyed, feeling like I was going to be lumped in with these other losers following the girls, though I was actually there first. Well, just as I was starting to leave the water, I realized the girls had a waterproof camera. So I decided to say something rather than just walk away awkward. I acted like I was a little shocked and annoyed that they had a camera there. Then walked over to them reached my hand out and suggested that I could take a picture of the two of them. (Keep in mind this is my FIRST time at a nude beach. I’m very conservative and have never even been naked with my girlfriend. Can you say NERVOUS?! But I just tried to hide it.)

Well, the long story short, they laughed and let me take their picture; and we stayed there and had fun in the water together for probably another 15 minutes. Later I worked up even more nerve, an went over to them on the beach with my camera and asked them if we could all take a picture together… which we did.

What a completely amazing experience! I have gone from being afraid to take a shower in the men’s locker room at the gym, to being comfortable in my own skin around almost anyone, including those two young, attractive women. What a confidence booster!

I went to Gunnison Beach last weekend and had a fantastic time meeting other people. Guys, girls, and couples. I still don’t think I’m ready to go au naturale with people I know, but this is definitely a liberating experience that I plan to continue enjoying.

Soak up some rays, nude of course

nudist-galleryOn my 4th day at Wreck beach, arriving there at 10AM,I found a good spot to lay out my towel and soak up some rays, nude of course.

A few hours later I could hear some female conversation near me, so I sat up and grabbed a bottle of water to drink. I said; hello. One of them asked me how often I go to Wreck. I replied that I was from Edmonton and that this was my 4th day here. They were locals from Vancouver and this was their first time at wreck beach. At this stage, they had gotten around to removing their tops.

Then, another one asks me ‘How come none of the guys get Boners?’ To which I responded ‘That hardly ever happens on a nude beach,believe it or not’. I then asked them ‘How do you like this place, so far? The consensus was ‘ We don’t have loud mouth jerks hitting us up every 5 minutes like at the other beaches!’ At this stage, all 3 removed their bottoms. I said ‘Welcome to the Club’.

At this point, I told them that I am going for a dip in the ocean to cool off. When I got back to my towel, one of them remarked that the water must be cold! I am one who is quite large in the flaccid state, but the cold shrivels it up!

We chatted for a while longer, then we went our separate ways due to some younger guys that seemed to be crowding the area that were clothed in board shorts and T-Shirts.(stupid).

I think the 3 Young Ladies are HOOKED on the Nudist Lifestyle.

Social Issues in Regards to Voyeur Nudity

nudist-girliesSocial Issues in Regards to Voyeur Nudity

Nudity Shame (voyeur nudity)

Centuries of oppressive thought have convinced many people that the body is a shameful, worthless object that should be hidden. Nonsense! The human body is one of the most elegant, masterful and valuable things on earth. There are few things in existence which compare to it on an artistic, technical, or philosophical level. Celebrate the human body! It’s one of only a handful of truly unique creations.

Embarrassment (voyeur nudity)

Some people are afraid of running into someone they know while nude, or – worse – being seen by someone they know (or someone they don’t) while nude. Remember that you will be around many other people who will also be nude. You may be momentarily embarrassed at first – this is normal – but as you spend more time nude, you will realize that if everyone is nude, no one has cause for nudity-related embarrassment. As for the possibility that you’ll run into someone you know – well, if you like them, you’ve got something new in common to talk about? Besides, what is there to be embarrassed about? They are there, too, for the same reasons as you.
Defining Voyeurism :: Human sexual behavior involving achievement of sexual arousal through viewing the sexual activities of others or through watching others disrobe. To some extent voyeurism is widespread; various types of sexual display are a normal part of sexual attraction and mating behavior in most animals, including humans, but voyeurism is considered a deviant behavior when observation ceases to be merely one factor in sexual attraction and becomes the sole or primary source of gratification. The risk of being caught is an additional element in the excitement of the voyeur.

The following was written by a young member of the Federation of Canadian Naturists. It is used with their permission.

15 Top Reasons to Be Naked
1. It’s fun! Of course, it’s not for everyone, but then, neither is Madonna nor the Red Hot Chili Peppers, NBA basketball nor Batman. But once most young couples and boyfriends/girlfriends try it, they come back. Why? Because it’s fun. You probably know people who have vacationed at nude beaches, who skinny-dip in their backyard pool or who lounge around the house nude. Why not?

2. It’s healthy! Besides improved self-esteem, the sun relieves stress, provides you with Vitamin D, a tan with SPF 4 protection and helps clear acne. Naturists don’t overdo their time in the sun; they tan safely with a sunscreen.
Five Step Nudity
If you’ve just been waiting for encouragement to get naked from a mainstream source, especially if you are female, now you have it. Here are the 5 steps to a more naked you:

1. Expose yourself. Get comfortable being nude alone.

2. Get to know your body. Pay attention to your body’s sensory signals, especially when unclothed.

3. Look at yourself. Become familiar with – and accepting of how you look without clothes.

4. Move on to semi public nudity. In commonly acceptable circumstances, such as a locker room.

5. Graduate to social nudity. The real thing.

The feature, of course, is about body acceptance. The message has been repeated often enough, that people (women especially) are needlessly unhappy due to fears their bodies are somehow not “right”. But this time the way to overcome the problem is stated very clearly.

Our first ‘planned’ nude outing with friends happened this weekend.

Earlier in the week a cookout at our house had turned into an impromptu nude swim session in our pool. We discovered while not ‘social nudists’ per se that we all spent a lot of time that way around home.

Wander into a nudist crowd

nudist-girlsOf course, erections should be covered up!

However, they will occur dispite everyone’s efforts to prevent them because many of us are still making the transition from the textile lifestyle. Male physiology makes it impossible for a man to remain completely flaccid throughout the day.

Most thoughtful guests at a beach or resort are terribly embarrased by erections and are asking for suggestions on this forum on how to prevent them and how to gracefully make your exit when they do occur. Many of us who are new to this life would also like some reassurance that the problem will diminish with time and better understanding.

A G string is not an acceptable solution. Complete nudity is the normal state for men as well as women. We need to learn new thinking and behavior, not go back to the textile world’s way of viewing things. I have never seen male G strings for sale anywhere. Even if I could find one, I wouldn’t wear it. Many naturists and fair-minded textile people would consider it more sexually provocative than mere innocent nudity.

A libertine or an exhibitionist may occasionally wander into a nudist crowd, but I am not talking about them. Most naturists want such people evicted from polite society.

I do believe that it is helpful to discuss etiquette and basic biology. I wish I had learned some of these lessons when I was a boy, perhaps of middle school age. It’s not fair for children to suffer in ignorance and silence because adults are too embarassed to talk about the facts of life and about basic nudist etiquette, even the less delicate topics.

It has been suggested that a public forum is inappropriate for such frank discussions, because children may stumble upon it. I hope that parents and teachers are closely monitoring the Internet usage of children and providing some guidance to teens. I firmly believe that at some age, perhaps middle school, boys and girls need to be reading the sort of information in this forum and have their parents there to guide them through these topics that they will soon be confronted with at the cusp of adolescence. To support my contention, I must call attention to the fact that INA has created a thread specifically to discuss issues such as this.

To GalSurfer: I am especially concerned about the sensibilities of the female contributors to this forum. Let me assure you that I am opposed to sexual “flaunting” as you put it, because it is demeaning and intimidating to those who are forced to endure it. I think some of us made a poor choice of words by saying “arousal” without quickly explaining that in its mildest form, it may not be perceptible to the casual observer. I don’t know any men of good will who would not quickly retreat from public view if matters took a turn for the worse. If any readers don’t know how to behave, this forum can help quickly bring “newbie” behavior in line with our community’s standards. Better to learn it here than on the beach!

My first naked outside experience

nudist-family-storyHello to all, this is my first post on this forum and it comes after my first visit to a clothing optional resort.
My first naked outside experience occurred when I was probably 10. My cousins dared me to run around our grandmother’s house naked. I took the dare and loved it. I have looked for chances to be naked outside ever since. However, being raised in a conservative family and now married to a wonderful woman who was also raised conservatively I haven’t had many opportunities.
I am naked around the house as much as possible, but that is becoming limited these days as our daughter is getting older and our conservative upbringing and ideas of modesty are causing me to be clothed more around her. The cover up was causing me to go a little crazy though, I needed to be naked somewhere. I was doing stupid things, going naked in places that if I was caught I could get in trouble.
All that said, the wife and kids were out of town this weekend, so I took the opportunity to go to a clothing optional resort nearby and try it out for a little while.
I had two main concerns going in, one of which had been eased by reading other posts on this forum. I was afraid of getting an erection. Didn’t happen, not even close. My other concern, and guys you’ll appreciate this, was that after swimming, exercise, or just being nervous my penis and testicles shrivel up and I feel like I look like a five year old. I was afraid that the anxiousness associated with my first experience being nude publicly would cause this to occur and I would be self concious about perceived size. A quick check of the situation about five minutes before I arrived confirmed that fear. I was anxious and so were the boys. However, after a quick tour with the owner and checking in for the day I was feeling pretty relaxed. Less worried about a first experience and more pleased with the opportunity to do something that I knew I wanted to do. Without nervousness or hesitation I parked the car and used it as my locker. With people walking around both clothed and nude and stripped off right there and headed for the pool. And I am happy to report the boys were hanging loose, so fear number two turned out to be a non factor.
As for the visit itself, it was so so. I went alone, and while the people were friendly and said hello, most kept to themselves. There wasn’t much going on at the time. There were probably 30 to 40 people around the pool and that was it. No one was in the lodge or hot tub, so the pool and lounge deck where the only choices for socializing.
All in all is was a good experience. Like most who post about their first time, my nervousness was gone very quickly. Now I just need to convince my wife that it is a good idea for her to try it.
