Gunnison Beach – 6 A.M.I grew up in a house where nudity was no big deal.

We occasionally would swim nude in our fairly private backyard, and nudity in the house was, although not encouraged, definitely not frowned on either.

As an adult there was never much chance to revisit those carefree moments of youth. I traveled a good bit with my work and learned of the approved nude beach at Sandy Hook, NJ.

Eventually I was in that area overnight and took the opportunity to go to the beach before beginning my work day. I got to the beach sometime around 6 a.m. and the beach was abandoned and cold. I sat in my garments on the sand and watched the sun come up. About 7:30 it got warm enough to take my clothes off and enjoy , the sound of the surf and the breeze. By then a number of early risers had arrived at the seashore, but it was still largely deserted. I just had an hour or so on the seashore before I had to start my day.

I enjoyed the sense of being nude in nature so much that I went back to the seashore after my appointments were completed and appreciated the rest of the day on the considerably more crowded shore, watching the sun go down before I left. At no time did I feel uncomfortable being naked in the business of other naked folks. Possibly becoming a little used to it in the morning before the crowds came helped a bit, but I believe that should you approach nudism from the appropriate viewpoint it is not a sexually charged encounter and so there’s actually nothing to be uncomfortable about. When you have not tried it yet, I’d encourage you to give it a try. Its certainly amazing.

I’ve since been back to the shore many times and joined a nonlanded club where we have been able to enjoy day trips to landed clubs in the region. It is all great but my favorite place is still the seashore with its surf and sand!

Waited Too Long

My whole adult life thus far has been subjected to rules designed to stop embarrassment to the “company.” I have needed to play by everyone else’s rules. Well for the first time I chose to take my first step of “independence” and took a trip to Haulover Beach. WOW! What a sense relief! To be there, with all those beautiful people who had no care what others thought of them…and there I was with them. How amazing it was to feel the sun on my whole body. Swimming in the ocean minus the confinement of a swimsuit. So satisfying. I can’t wait for my next visit. Regrettably, here in Miami there aren’t any clothing discretionary communities, so I’m planning a vacation to one in Central Florida. I can not wait. I’m so thrilled with my new found life.

First time at nudist camp!

I was told about nude camp. Was interested! Did not go the first year but the next I did go. What a freeing experience! I joined AANR the very next week and this year became an Associate member! I enjoy it so much that I do proudly say I am a nudist!

The possibility of visiting a nudist club fell into my lap unexpectedly. In those days I was dating my wife Claudia, but we had not taken a step forward. We were just building up the camaraderie in those days. Afterward out of a blue I was having tea at her place, when her mother entered.

Shortly we got acquainted, then her mom mother asked me if I want to join her and Claudia over the weekend at a bare resort. I found myself saying YES.All she counseled me was to feel friendly with everyone.

The next Saturday morning we were on our way. When we reached there, all I can say it was a bare woods, but very well maintained.

Soon they both got there, clothes away as if it was ordinary routine. I also had to take off. I was shy a bit, but to my shock no one troubled to look at me. Claudia’s mom, seeing me hesitating a bit, offered to show me the resort. I was surprised to see naked girls/ women playing volleyball, other sports and swimming with naked guys. Not only this but guys shooting photographs of their relatives in nude. This made me feel comfortable.

All I can say is it was a greatest weekend I ever had. I felt healthy, and noticed that I had acquired more assurance. Now My wife and I are regular members of that resort. We have made many friends there. I propose to all or any people around the world take a rest and give your own life an opportunity to change.

Finest car ride ever

I consider my first time encounter to be when my(then future) wife and I were taking a road trip to Canada. It was in 1989 and we were driving up Interstate 81 through New York. It was a beautiful day. My wife was driving the car and we had the windows down. We were both simply enjoying the ride as well as the attractive landscape that was passing by and I started to get the sensation that I was wearing too much clothes , and so I kicked off my shoes and got out of my top.

We drove along for a little while more and I began slipping my pants away. My wife looked at me and asked, “what are you doing?” I told her I was getting comfy. Not long after that I slipped out of my undies, and was cruising up Interstate 81 naked as a Jay bird.

It was excellent! My wife thought I was crazy. I believe she still does but she has stuck with me for almost 20 years.

Now I understand that wasn’t a group nudist encounter but it absolutely was the first time I declared myself a man who likes to be nude. I do have to also add that that car ride was the best memory I have of that trip.
