First-Time Nudist Experience
What did you expect?
After several years of wrestling with the idea,
I finally made it to a naturist resort in beautiful Palm Springs. I was moments away from stepping outside for my first ever experience, when someone knocked on the door. Without thinking I popped it open to find a lovely but fully clothed lady standing there. Apparently she had the wrong room number. I'm proud of the fact that I didn't even flinch. Her direct eye contact was as if it was set in stone. But, when she turned to leave she really "got an eye full" as she walked away.
My first thought was something like, "Well, what did you expect, feathers?" So, with that thought in mind I went outside and began the best and most relaxing vacation I had ever had. Needless to say, I haven't looked back,
except to laugh. At that time, I became a
practicing naturist and I'm proud of it.

Adding to my bucket list
My first experience was at Blacks Beach in La Jolla California. I was there just out of boot camp and while in my "A" school I kept hearing about the nude beach in La Jolla. I had started a bucket list of things I wanted to do in life a few years earlier and got to thinking....why not? I could add this to my bucket list!! I am 3000 miles from anyone I know, it would be great to say that once when I was 24, I went to a nude beach.
One of my "A" school friends and I decided to give it a shot on our last weekend in San Diego. We were a bit nervous as we headed to the beach. Finally when we got there, we opted to walk up and down the beach with our clothes on and then decided to shed our clothes!
We were both amazed at how quick we became comfortable with being naked, we actually felt more awkward when we had clothes on and nobody else did! We stayed for several hours, swimming, enjoying the sun, and having a great time. Funny story about that trip, I dozed off on the beach. Not sure what I was dreaming about, but I started to have an erection and it woke me up and I had to sit up and cover up, and was pretty embarrassed. In 22 years since that time, it is still the only spontaneous erection I have ever had at a nude resort. When people ask me questions about being a nudist, that is one of the most commonly asked questions, and it just doesnt happen.
When I returned home from that first experience, I thought that was it. I didnt know it existed elsewhere. Several years later, after moving to South Carolina, I somehow found out about a resort in the Columbia, SC area. They have an annual even called Nudestock and I spent the weekend there and was hooked! Now everywhere I go, I look to see what nudist resorts are in the area.
I have a complete change in my self body image. Before my first experience I was very self conscious of my body....now I am extremely confident in my body. I feel amazing when the sun, breezes, and water caress my body...it is totally a completely freeing experience! I talk openly about my experiences and have taken several people for their first experiences and never has anyone had a bad experience.

Free at Last
My first time nude experience occurred when a friend of mine talked me into going to a clothing optional get together at health club with her. I was incredibly nervous the whole week before but I was comitted to doing it. We entered the club and went to what was marked as the women's locker room to undress. The first thing I saw was a guy taking his briefs off. My friend saw my confusion and laughingly said "everything's coed here." We got a couple of lockers. She was naked in no time. I had taken my shirt and shorts off but froze there; too nervous to take anything else off. I kept looking around at who else was in the room and was just plain nervous. I tried to unhook my bra but my hands were shaking so badly I couldn't manage it. My friend took care of it for me. So there I was topless. I quickly shed my panties and put everything in the locker before I lost my nerve. What a feeling when I walked out of that locker room completely nude iin front of 100 people. It was exhilirating and embarassing at the same time. But there I was hiding noothing. We headed for the pool. Swimming around naked felt so good and it kind of felt I was covered. Next came the sauna for about 5 minutes to dry off. By the time we exited the sauna I felt totally comfortable with being nude and wondered what all my nervousness had been about. I was hooked. This was great. So freeing. We went over to watch the volleyball game for a while. When that game ended I joined the next game. OMG. Was this great or what? Here I was bouncing around the volleyball court completely naked and loving every second of it. It struck me that in about a half hour I went from petrifed to take my bra off to cavorting naked. I was so free. We stayed for over two hours and I hated to put clothes on later. LOL. That was it for me. I became a nudist. That was about 20 years ago and I've never looked back.
Nude in Oklahoma
Some time ago my wife and I were discussing what we'd like to do and I said, "I wish we had some property so we could run naked in the woods together". She thought that it sounded like fun.
Fast forward a few years and the topic came up again, but since we still didn't own any property she said what about one of those nude places (sounds like she might have been thinking about this a little). So we Googled nude and Oklahoma and found two places within an hour's drive of us. We sent an e-mail to both and got a very nice reply from OakLake Trails near Depew. So I get a call from my wife at work one day telling me I needed to take a day off as she had made a reservation for a night's stay during the week we figured that less people would be there as we got our "feet wet" during the week).
We arrived at OLT and were given a tour of the resort. After filling out the paperwork we were off to our cabin. We disrobed, grabbed our towels and stepped outside for our first ever nude in public experience. We decided to walk one of the trails to get comfortable. As we were returning down a road to our cabin we passed by some folks clothe, I didn't realize it was clothing optional.
I told my wife, "If you had told me three weeks ago I'd be walking down the road buck naked in front of people I'd have said you were crazy," but there we were doing just that and it didn't even feel weird. We then headed off to the pool and hot tub to soak and relax.
We met several nice people that night as we soaked in the hot tub and spent the next day lounging around the pool, but soon it was time to leave. On the way home my wife said, "that's the first time I felt comfortable in my own skin."
How soon did we go back? Five days later we spent the day there and have since become members of OLT.
Nude at Big Sur
My ideal of camping is roughing it at the Hilton. LOL! My boyfriend is an avid camper and had been after me to join him. Finally, I agreed and he offered several destinations and I picked Big Sur.
Arriving early Friday for a long weekend, we pretty much had our choice of camp sites. My boyfriend picked the site and we headed over to set up camp. The chill of the morning air was gone and temperature was in the mid 80's. I had always harbored a fantasy of being nude in an outdoor setting but never dreamed I was about to realize my fantasy.
I had no clue about setting up camp so mostly watched until it was time to raise the tent.I was really starting to feel the temperature and since no one was around, slipped my t-shirt off and had my bikini top on. My boyfriend just smiled and kept working. I started to get the best feeling and suddenly had this uncontrollable urge to take my bikini top off.
As quickly as the thought came to me...off came my top. Wow! What an awesome feeling! My BF said he loved seeing me topless but watch for other campers or camp rangers! I laughed and soon he ha dhis shirt off. Almost set up when a car stopped and 3 girls asked if they could set up in the next site. I said sure. The unpacked the SUV and before they did anything, all three were topless. They did ask for some help with their tent and my BF obliged. We had lunch and a beer and by this time I am feeling over dressed with my shorts on...and just that quick I was down to my panties. Two more SUV's drove by but not even a second look. We grabbed our towels and cooler and started to the beach when our neighbors asked us to wait for them as they had never been there before and did not want to wander into the wrong area and cause an issue about being topless.
In minutes, the 5 of us were headed down the path to the beach. We did pass a family coming up the path but they were not upset of 4 topless women. When we arrived at the sand, there were several other couples in various stages of dress on the beach. Two of our neighbors immediately dropped their bikini bottoms and continued as though perfectly natural. Hey, if this works for them...off comes mine. I was so excited I did not notice that my BF was also naked. On the beach, totally naked and feeling the greatest feeling of freedom. As the sun was setting, we all headed back to camp. We girls put on the bottoms of our bikinis but never bothered with our tops.
By the time we were nearing our campsite, we noticed the camp was almost full and yet no one said a word about us being topless. My BF and our neighbors pretty much spent the weekend together and around camp, we had our bottoms on and were topless until the night air chill arrived. Nude on the beach Saturday and Sunday and it was about a 50/50 mix of people nude and clothed but there were no problems. I still have mixed feeling about the camping but the freedom of being totally naked ourdoors never loses its appeal. We also enjoy nudity at home.
