First-Time Nudist Experience

This Changed My Life

One day when my parents were not home I was in my robe alone in the house. I would get two weeks home alone and it was summer so when they left I went outside and let the robe drop to the ground. I realized the cool summer breeze and how it felt so good so I got into the hot tub. Amazing!

For the rest of that summer I didn't put on clothes. My parents were scared at first but they realized this was what made me happy.

Introduction to Nudism

I was helping set up security for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. I was at the Hard Rock Cafe in Atlanta talking with a couple. Told them I had to get away for the weekend. They gave me a number and name to call of a nice resort close by that had a pool, hot tub and very friendly people. As they left they told me it was a nudist resort.

I thought about it and decided to try it and went that weekend. Loved the experience and the people I met. They made me feel so welcome and everything seemed so natural. When my daughter came down to work security with me I told here where I had gone and she wanted to go with me. We went the next weekend and spent two days there. We were hooked and even though we could go to the opening Olympic ceremony free, we watched it on a TV in the motor home of a family who were teachers from California while relaxing at Hidden Valley nudist resort in Georgia.

We went there another time before we had to leave Georgia. When we got up to the New England area we visited some local nudist resorts and felt at home. My wife and I now live in a nudist resort in Florida, and my daughter visits every year to live the nudist lifestyle.

First Time

June 1st, 2009. I made my way to Mira Vista Resort in Tucson, signed in, took my clothes off and wandered about the Resort. I introduced myself and confessed that this was my first (public) experience as a nudist. Nancy said "Show me your tush!" I turned around and was pronounced a "cotton tail." What a delightful and gracious introduction and welcome to the nudist community!

My Biggest Regret

Being naked has always been very natural to me, I can remember when I was maybe 4 or 5 just wanting to be naked. Nothing has changed 40 years later, it just feels "normal" to me.

I did my homework online and read as much as I could about going to a nudist resort, oh boy, was I excited! The day I set out to go was beautiful and I was ready to get naked. It was about a 2 hour drive and of course all I was thinking about was getting there and jumping in the pool naked. YIPEEE! But as I got close my stomach was getting more upset from my nerves. I starting thinking about turning around and heading home but just kept driving. I really wanted to feel the sun on my naked body and go swimming naked, after all it was a beautiful day.

As I pulled up to the gate I thought I was going to throw up and at that point I really had to talk myself into going forward. When the staff answered the buzzer and told me to come to the office to get checked in I just kept telling myself it was going to be awesome even though I was so nervous.

After checking in and heading to my truck I couldn't believe it. I was looking at naked people up by the pool and I was about to be one of them! I stood by my truck looking busy for about 10 minutes without taking anything off and finally I realized it was time to take ALL my clothes off and be free. As I wrapped my towel around my neck and made sure it covered me somewhat I shut the door of my truck and headed to the pool one slow step at a time. I was getting more confident with every step.

I had to take a shower before getting into the pool and it was a QUICK one.The showers are about 10 feet from the pool and I bet I made it in about 2 steps after I shut the shower off. I spent the rest of the day in the pool floating around and LOVING every second of it. It wasn't my first time being naked in a pool but it was my first time being with other people naked and I am sure it showed that it was my first time but by the time I had left that day I felt like I had known some of the people for a long time.

The reason that this trip was such a big deal for me was because I don't have the "normal" body. I am a big guy, need to lose weight and had feared I might be laughed at or people would stare, but after going there now for more then 8 years (just a couple times a year) I realized that NOBODY cares! Its not that they don't care about me, its just that nobody cares what your body looks like. I waited for so long to go to a nudist resort because I didn't have the "perfect"body. I am yet to see the "perfect" body but I have meet some of the greatest people I will ever meet in my life. When you're naked with other people it's as real as it gets and I have found that nudists are as nice as people come.

So this is why I titled this "My Biggest Regret" because I regret that I waited so long to get out and be naked with other like-minded people. If the thought has ever crossed your mind, just go get naked. You wont regret it.

Beach Day

Since I was a teen I had always heard about nudist beaches and camps, but I never knew where to find them. This was before the Internet age. In the mid '90s I had access to the Internet and chat rooms. I met a woman on the chat site who told me about visiting a nude beach. I asked about how I could find one in my state. She told me about a website where I could picture a guide book which describes the locations of swimming holes and beaches.

After buying this I read about a beach at Martha's Vineyard. Some time later I finally had a chance to get out there with my at the time girlfriend. Eventually I found the beach I was looking for after the ferry ride and bus ride across the island. I remember how natural everyone looked and how I was eager to join in the fun. The blanket was barely on the ground when my clothes came off. I enjoyed the liberating feeling of the wind on my body and being able to jump in the ocean naturally. My girlfriend finally got comfortable too.

I felt like I was on a level playing field with everyone else. Since then I have been visiting nudist campgrounds and coming to the Vineyard as much as possible. I have hated wearing bathing suits ever since.
