First-Time Nudist Experience

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.

Nude at 12

Much to my mother's chagrin, I opted to skip PJ's during the warm summer nights of my 12th year. Raised Catholic, nudity was frowned upon under any circumstances. A swimsuit was normal attire in the backyard pool until one day I decided that swimsuits were non-essential and I strolled out to the pool totally nude. My dad tried not to notice but Mom immediately told me to get a suit on. I shrugged and spread my towel and laid down on the adjacent lawn. I never felt awkward or nervous being nude. Later Mom addressed my nudity and said it was no acceptable especially in mixed company. I paid no heed and the next afternoon, my parents and aunt, uncle and cousins were all out at the pool and once again, I strolled out totally nude. With a few gasps from my parents and aunt and uncle, I acted as though there was nothing new or different. About 30 minutes later, my 15 and 16 year old cousins casually removed their tops and surprisingly, nothing was said. Soon to follow were their bikini bottoms.

Here we were! 3 totally naked young ladies when my other cousin opted to join us and dropped his swimsuit. Still nothing was said. Late in the afternoon, we BBQ'd and we did put the bottoms on while eating. After dark, we were naked again only this time,my aunt stood up and slipped off her sundress and underwear and joined us in the pool.

Mom, not sure what to do or say, just sat and watched. My aunt started to tease Mom and amid all of our laughing, Mom stripped naked and jumped in the pool. Later, dad heated the Jacuzzi and all the adults were enjoying a naked soak.

After everyone had gone home, Mom came into my room with just a sarong wrapped around her waist and sat down on my bed. I am sure she thought I would tease her but I acted as though I did not notice her naked breast. Mom was a little nervous so I asked her how she felt being naked with the family and she said she had always wanted to try being nude but never had the nerve. She confessed that she admired me and was glad she finally realized her desire to be naked. I think that was the last time anyone wore a swimsuit in the backyard and pool.

When I went away to college, we had separate pools for men and women. There were several other women that were topless in the pool and I followed the first few times but finally walked out of the showers nude one afternoon. Soon, most of the topless ladies were nude and after several weeks, it was pretty much nude for everyone.That was Berkley CA.

One afternoon, a male student came into the women's pool and stipped naked. He got a few stares but no one objected. Being friendly, I approached him to say hello and struck up a conversation. We met there frequently and soon began seeing each other socially. We were together through 4 years at Berkley and we have been happily married for almost 15 years. We still go nude at Mom and Dad's but have a beautiful little home with a private yard and we frequently entertain both our nude and textile friends.

My wife made me do it!

30 years ago wife and I were in the Caribbean at a private resort on a small island. We are early risers and walked to the end of the beach near our bungalo. Nobody was about and my wife took off her top and then dared me to go skinny-dipping. So I tossed my trunks on the towel and went for a swim in the surf while she sat and read her book. The surf was rough and when I got back I just flopped down to rest never covering up. With the warm sun and sound of the surf I fell fast asleep but felt safe with my wife on guard.

Later I awoke to voices. Two ladies we met the night before at diner were talking to my wife. Apparently my wife had waved to them to join us but she did not wake me. I reached for my trunks but they were gone. My wife had taken them and put them in her tote so she had set me up. I was lying face down but was still very awkward with the situation.

The ladies, sisters, acted as nothing was wrong and they sat down to chat. Finally one said it was nice for my wife to ask them to join us as they have never been on a clothing optional beach before and one of the sisters asked my wife if it was okay to join me. My wife said sure and she took off her suit. Her shier sister didn't. After a bit they asked about the rough surf as they saw my wet hair and my wife offered me to be their life-guard as I was a competitive swimmer. They ladies thanked me before I could say anything. So I rolled away from them and jumped up and ran down to the surf and jumped in before anyone could get much of a look. My wife just grinned.

So the sisters got into the surf and I kept a respectable distance from them. Eventaully the shy sister removed her suit too once she was in the water and was delighted until her bolder sister stole her suit and tossed it up onto the beach saying that now she would have to walk out nude. I felt horribile for her, so I walked out onto the sand and got her suit for her. Nobody should be forced into anything.

It was at that moment that I did not feel naked at all. I walked out of the water, got her suit for her and walked back to give it to her not caring who was looking at me. Shortly afterwards we all got out and returned to the towels where my wife was still reading. That is when the sisters noticed I was a smoothie. They made a comment and my wife simply said "I prefer him that way".

I stayed nude until we were ready to go back for brunch. As we got up and the sisters started to put on their suits my wife suggested that it would be silly for me to put my suit back on and that I walk back to the bungalo nude. It was her way of challenging me. So I look down the beach and as there were only a few people on the far end I said sure. With that the bolder sister decided to join me in the nude walk too, and so we went.

They joined us several time that week. I was always nude, my wife never was, but on the last day the bold sister decided to become a smoothie too! My wife still likes me to be nude around the house, but not her!

Hot Springs

We just went to a clothing-optional hot springs in northern California. I had never experienced social nudity before, and I was really nervous.

I went into a dressing room to undress, and my heart was punding outside my chest. The time came to step out into the public area, and as I did, a woman was there undressing. I asked where to put my bag, and she said she just leaves hers there by the bences. There I was, nude - in front of total strangers.

I went into the Osan to get into one of the three flumes, and there were about 15 people there. I got in and waited for my wife. About 5 minutes later, she arrived and joined me. It was amazing to stretch out in a tub of hot water with nothing on!

Soon I had to get out and cool off in the swimming pool, I grabbed my towel and placed it "stratigeclly" over my shoulder and walked down to the pool area and hopped in. I had not skinny-dipped since childhood, and I was quickly taken back to that time. I swam around for about 10 minutes, then went back to the hot flumes. This went on for about three hours. At about the thrid trip to the pool, I wasn't even taking my towel to cover up. It was strange - I didn't even really notice that I was nude, or anyone else for that matter.

I'm now hooked and will return to this facility frequently. After only a few hours, I felt so completly relaxed and rejuvinated. Hopefully my wife will soon come to realize the freedom and relaxation that can occur when you shed your shell. My only regrets were that I hadn't done this sooner and had to get dressed and go home.

Gunnison Beach - 6 A.M.

I grew up in a home 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, certainly not frowned on either.

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

Finally I was in that area overnight and took the opportunity to visit the beach before starting my work day. I got to the beach sometime around 6 a.m. and the beach was deserted and cold. I sat in my clothes on the sand and watched the sun come up. About 7:30 it got warm enough to take my clothes off and enjoy the sun, the sound of the surf and the breeze. By then a few early risers had come to the beach, but it was still mostly deserted. I only had an hour or so on the beach before I had to start my day.

I enjoyed the sensation of being nude in nature so much that I went back to the beach after my appointments were finished and enjoyed the rest of the day on the much more crowded beach, watching the sun go down before I left. At no time did I feel uncomfortable being nude in the company of other nude folks. Perhaps getting a bit used to it in the morning before the crowds came helped a bit, but I believe that if you approach nudism from the right perspective it is not a sexually charged experience and so there is really nothing to be uncomfortable about. If you haven't tried it yet, I'd encourage you to give it a try. Its absolutely amazing.

I've since been back to the beach many times and joined a nonlanded club where we've been able to enjoy day trips to landed clubs in the area. It's all great but my favorite venue is still the beach with its surf and sand!
