I never grew up believing much of nudism, it simply was not on my head. In my mid 20s I found how much I loved being naked after I took showers, and also would begin spending a growing number of time naked at home. I imagine I was a part-time household nudist for some time, which was amazing.
After a while, I believed Iwant to try social nudism, but I was not certain if I ‘d the nerve. Heck, I’d never even been naked in a locker room. Our school only had us change clothing, so down to underwear was about the most exposure I had with others.
After a few years, I finally decided to give it a shot. I had chatted online with lots of nudists and found another man my age who lived close to me. One day I drove around to his flat (hands shaking with the first timer nerves) to meet up. Rang the doorbell, and much to my surprise he answered the front door naked and encouraged me in. While I was caught off guard (I thought we had talk somewhat in person before nudity), I still thought it was cool and also a very good ice breaker.
So, I considered to myself “when in Rome” and within about 30 seconds of assembly, I’d stripped down in his front hallway! It was just like ripping off a band aid! Of course it was a much more freeing and liberating encounter than taking off a band-aid. Much to my surprise, I was not embarrassed or self-conscious to be standing there naked in front of a complete stranger. It was exhilarating.
We hung out for several hours, talked about nudism, watched TV, played cards (not strip poker, of course). It turned out to be a wonderful experience and I’m glad I finally gave it a shot after all those years.
That was about 5-6 years ago and I’m still participating in social nudism – whether it is at a friend’s house or at a nude beach or resort. Glad I finally gave it that first shot and never looked back!
I knew I was a nudist
Even at an extremely young age, I loved being naked. I had two other brothers growing up so I found it hard to have any privacy to be nude. My parents had over 6 acres of property as well as on a hot sunny day I ‘d go off by myself and strip off all my clothing and lay in sunlight.
As I got older and moved out on my own, I started to sleep naked; nothing is more relaxing than that to get a good night’s slumber. On the weekends, if I wasn’t going anyplace I would be nude round the house for the entire day and do whatever.
Six years ago I finally made a decision to visit my first nude beach found at Playalinda Beach. It did not take myself very long to be naked like everyone else. For the following four years I kept going back once or two times per year. My only regret is that I did not go sooner. This past September I finally ran my first nude 5k race at cypress cove. I loved so much that I’ve signed up for two races this year.
Today, whenever I can I am always naked in my home or at a nudist resort being free of clothes and stresses; there’s nothing like it.
Naturism Takes Flight
Occasionally, I will jokingly comment that I owe my thanks and my love for naturism to my company. You see, I work in the airline travel business as a flight crew member. Back in the day when airlines offered onboard magazines as an amenity for flying customers, I was nonchalantly thumbing through the pages of one of the publications entitled “Outside.”
It offers family nudist sex and advice about outdoor recreational sports equipment and travel. One of the pages of the specific dilemma included a colorful graphic advertisement for Lee Baxandall’s, “World Guide To Nude Beaches & Recreation”. The name of Lee Baxandall will be recognized by any experienced naturist or nudist alike (of which I was neither at the time). Lee first took up the activity of naturism in Wisconsin as an Eagle Scout. Afterwards, in 1980, pure nudism became the founding member of The Naturist Society. He is also an inductee into AANR’s Nudist Hall of Fame. But I digress. His highest guide to nudism in natural settings peaked my curiosity. With pencil & paper, I jotted down the address of where to order my copy of this washed-out listing of places where one can vacation, camp, swim and socialize without wearing a single stitch of fabric. A couple of weeks ahead of my encounter with Mr. Baxandall’s guide, I ‘d organized an upcoming week of holiday alone in beautiful Maui, Hawaii. After receiving my copy in the mail, I instantly turned to the section of nudist beaches situated in the Aloha State and discovered “Little Beach”. When it was time to board my flight for Maui (this time as a regular man and not a working crew member), I anxiously expected the moment I’d eventually experience an entire week on the sand and by the ocean wearing nothing but my skin and a grin. That first expected ‘bare’ moment has now come and gone. And my memory of it brings many descriptive words to mind: natural, liberating, freeing, exuberating, lusty yet non sexual, energizing, rejuvenating and so much more.

Check itAnd for me, the ‘so-much-more’ contains religious reconnection. I consider my nakedness will not belong to me, but instead to Creation. NUDE is how I was ‘created’ and brought into the world. THAT, within itself, makes it religious in nature for me. It makes it a good thing, healthy and pure; nothing to be ashamed of nor to hide. Rather, I see my nakedness as something to embrace and to be lived. I wish to allow it to breathe my existence. Inside my view, to deny my nakedness is to denounce my Creator’s development. I do not care to silence that breath. Itis a gift. I want it to thrive. I need it to grow. And in so doing, I express my sincerest form of gratitude to the “Giver” of that present; oh, and gratitude to my employer for carrying that magazine on the plane. And for giving me the coveted perk of air travel. It is an ideal means by which to find and experience more of this beautiful planet’s Au Naturel destinations. Today, I still adore flying high Au Naturel!
Long Time Nudist
When I was still a child I always felt good when I was nude, so I’d always make sure I needed to walk to the restroom to take a bath and back to my room bare. When I turned 8 years old I started sleeping nude and also would sit around or lay on my bed in my room bare constantly, and when no one was home, I’d always be bare in other parts of my house.
as soon as I turned 12 years old I had a pal and streaking was a big craze then, so we’d streak every opportunity we got. Sadly my family would not have consented for me to be a nudist, so I could not tell them, nor be nude in front of them.
When I went into my own house I was nude all of the time. I always strove to persuade my girlfriends that they’d like being a nudist but most wouldn’t attempt it, along with the ones that attempted it didn’t enjoy it, but I consistently continued being nude all the time as it’s the only method I wish to be.
Before I got married my fiancee knew I was a nudist and also would continue to be a nudist after we were married, and after 25 years of marriage she understands I will stay a nudist.
She is not a nudist. As well, my children aren’t nudist. Lucky for me my family understands being naked is the way I am comfortable, and do not mind that I ‘m always naked. I always loved being bare, and always will.
I’ve been a nudist for 49 years and no way I would ever alter.

Breaking Down Barriers
On a recent trip to a Florida beach resort, while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, the unbelievable urge to be naked in the water was too much to suppress. I found myself out beyond any other swimmers and removed my trunks. I stayed there for what seemed like hours enjoying the feel of the water plus a liberty like I have never experienced before.
I am a 51 year old male and never would have thought to do something similar to that in a private pool let alone the Gulf. The exhilaration I felt left an indelible impression of the independence and sense of one with nature that I want to keep up.
Upon returning home I immediately joined AANR and am actively seeking a local resort to visit. It’s going to be my first “official” exposure (no pun intended) to a naturist environment and I welcome any ideas.
Thank you for opening up a brand new phase in my life.
