Friends, Family and Nudism
New at Nudism
My experience began a few years ago when joking I said to my husband we should go camping at a nudist campground. Well he was so excited about going that we looked for one online and found one not to far from our home. We booked a weekend and on our way. I was nervous at first but he couldn't wait to take his clothes off. When we arrived he was naked as soon as we parked the camper. It took me a bit, it was raining and there were a few people there. We went to the clubhouse with a couple who were camping next to us and one of them suggested to go into the hot tub. What better way to spend a raining day.
Well we all know what you need to do to go into a hot tub so off came my clothes and that is how we spent the whole weekend. We liked it so much we went back and on that second trip was when I told my mother and our kids. They both seemed okay with it. In fact my mother told me that my father always wanted to go but never did. He was a indoor nudist. On hot days he and my mother would go skinny-dipping across from our house. We haven't told close friends yet but I know it will just be a matter of time before we do.

Showing a Family About Nudism
I bought my first house some years ago and lived in the East Coast most of my life. I had 3 acres of serene countryside complete with trees, grass, rabbits, deer,and birds. It was paradise. As a part-time dancer and model, I spent all my time there nude, and the neighbors saw it and knew it. They never complained. Apart from the initial gawking, they got used to it, and came to accept that if they looked out or came up to the house, they would see me naked. In fact, their visits became more frequent.
Only a few of my non-nudist friends however really knew this. I was still in the closet so to speak. But when I moved to California and lived in an apartment, one of my friends back east asked me if I missed my house there. Well I told her as a matter I fact I missed being able to just come home and shed everything and be naked outside. She was not shocked or surprised, but wanted to hear more about nudism. I guessed that one of my other friends had told her that I was a nudist. We talked about resorts I soon discovered in California,I could spend time on weekends being naked. She was really curious. The next time I visited her back east, (I was passing by on a visit while going to the beaches), I stayed with her and her husband and children. I was clothed at first, but as the day wore on, we were in their enclosed backyard where the pool was. It was hot. The kids skinny-dipped and their mom asked if I'd like to join them. So, I stripped also. The parents clapped when they saw me get naked. It was a lot of fun playing with the five children in the pool, all enjoying the sun on our naked skin. After drying off, we stayed nude the rest of the day into the night--wrestled, played games, ate--all in the nude. I tucked them in nude and their parents gave them permission to sleep naked for the 1st time. Their parents were a little nervous at first taking their own clothes off because our body shapes are different. But the shame went away after mom at first went topless, then bottomless, and then dad revealed everything also. This time, the kids and I clapped and we all laughed for a while. Since then the family has been going nude every weekend. My friend tells me it sure cuts down on the laundry!
Most People Know
In early 2008 I started exploring nudism on the internet and thought it sounded like fun. I started going nude whenever I was alone at home. My wife and I are empty nesters so whenever she was gone for a length of time I got nude. I didn't think she would care for me being nude. By spring of 2009 I started going nude even while she was at home. She said it was fine with her as long as I did it at night with the curtains closed so nobody could see me. That is the way it started.
In Sept 2009 I went to the Oregon Coast and had my first, sadly alone, outdoor nude experience and instantly loved it. In the summer of 2010 I had my first social nude outing at our local nude swimming hole. My wife went with me and had a good time but remained in her swim suit. In the summer of 2011 she left the swim suit behind and cannot think of having to wear clothes while swimming.
In the fall of 2010 we joined the Rogue Suncatchers nudist club and have made some great friends. She remained a semi-textile by wearing a sarong and panties. She now just wears the sarong during club events. While I am nude whenever I am in the house, unless we have non-nudist company, my wife will still not sit around nude. I am fine with that. We have had one non-nudist friend join us in our hot tub and she said thanks to liquid courage she went nude with us.
I am a full time college student at 57 and have handed out the AANR brochures as well as our club's and they have been well received even if none have joined us yet.
90% of our family and friends know we are nudists, in fact when I told my mother she said it didn't surprise her as I have always hated clothes. Growing up my father would not allow any male to eat at his table, even during a picnic, without a shirt on and my first time eating nude made me think about that. My wife and I still laugh about it at times.
Shortly after deciding to look for nudism on the Internet I found and joined a Christian Nudist forum website and have since been made an Administrator/Moderator. Yes, Christians get nude as well. There are many Christians who embrace nudism and there are many Christian nudist sites as well.
My wife and I have joked over the last year about buying an established nudist resort or starting one here in Southern Oregon. At this time it isn't going to happen.
My Family and Nudity
Let first off I love being nude and try to be as much as possible. I am a 25 year old, African American beauty married for 7 years. I was raised a nudist and my family is very much on board. We have a family tradition of being nude at home. When friends came over they were shocked to see us all nude.
But they soon accepted and join us. I love every moment of it until we moved to a new city in the South. I feared we would be understood and even shunned. But surprisingly most people were nice although some were not.
We openly told people that we don't wear clothes at home. Most laughed and thought we were joking until they came over and realized that we were telling the truth. Again, most accepted and even joined in, although some didn't.
I met my husband during my high school years and I fell for him instantly but I was nervous about telling him what my family does. He came from a very conservative family. But one day I just decided he had to know and told to come over my house and, of course, I was naked along with my mom and sisters. He looked shocked but soon relaxed. He soon met other family members who are as diverse with nudity as we are.
We ended up getting married. It took some time for him to shed his clothes. We lived with his mom for six months who, not a fan of nudity, limited me from being nude in her house. Then we moved to an apartment where I had a little more freedom but it was limited. Then we finally moved to the house of my dream where we could go nude anywhere on our property.
I love it and my neighbors' just had to get used to it.My family and friends are welcome to disrobe as soon they come over. Unlike my parents I want my husband to share in the nudity as well. Oftentimes he doesn't unless we are alone or with my family. But I told my husband in 2012 I will be fully nude at home no matter what and no matter who comes over and when we have kids I will raise them like I was raised. Our family is great and I thank God for my parents and my upbringing.
I have been a nudist for over forty years. When I first started in the teenage years I kept it to myself. One day as I was naked in the house, my mother came home from work early and saw me. She asked me if my clothes were dirty and if that's I was naked. I told her it felt good not wearing them. She was fine with that.
A few years after that, my girlfriend was on her way over. I had to tell her. So I didn't get dressed. When she got there I opened the door naked. She came in and said I looked good like that. I told her about my nudity and she got undressed also. So any time we were visiting each other we would always go around naked.
Years after that when I married someone else, I told her. At first she accepted it and I always was naked when her friends would visit. They didn't see anything wrong with it. But now my wife doesn't like the idea that I'm a nudist. I still sleep naked but she won't. Most of our family members don't understand, but some do. Some of our friends are nudists also.
