The World of Nude Recreation As Told By You
Page 1 of 4
I wanted to experience NUDISM with someone who was in the NUDIST LIFESTYLE. Since there are no clubs or NUDISTS resorts in the BAHAMAS WHERE I LIVE I contacted an older NUDIST LADY who lived in the U. S. A. and was a DEVOTE NUDIST and invited her to visit the BAHAMAS, I wanted to experience NUDISM for the first time with a person who knew more than I about this interesting lifestyle. She was an older lady and came for a visit. We both ENJOYED BEING TOTALLY NAKED TOGETHER and spent many pleasant days exploring the many secluded beaches here in the BAHAMAS. We went for long beach walks together, I listened as she explained to me THIS HEALTHY,WHOLESOME, BEAUTIFUL LIFESTYLE. I wanted to remember this experience and took many WONDERFUL PHOTOS of her [ and had photos taken of US TOGRTHER NAKED, many of them I have ENLARGED, IN FRAMES IN MY HOUSE and DISPLAY THEM PROUDLY.] Since then I joined AANR and have to say IAM A PROUD NUDIST and AANR MEMBER. I have met many NUDISTS who have visited the BAHAMAS and over the years have become LIFELONG FRIENDS. I am still in contact with this WONDERFULL OLDER NUDIST LADY who gave me the courage to give NUDISM A TRY. I often look at the photos taken the day of my FIST SCOCIAL NUDIST EXPERIENCE and remember hot LOVELY IT WAS TO ENIOY THE FEELING OF NUDIST FREEDOM WITH A DEVOTE OLDER NUDIST LADY. Brian Clark
My first time experiencing nudism: I was at one of the many secluded beaches here in the BAHAMAS and saw a group of 8 naked people, all older couples. As I walked by they waved, smiled and said Hi. They looked so relaxed and happy. I thought what a wonderful sight NAKED IN NATURE.
I wanted to join them, so I removed my bathing suit and joined them. ALL OF THEM SMILED AND CLAPPED HANDS. I spent a BEAUTIFUL, PLEASANT DAY WITH MY NEW FOUND NUDIST FRIENDS.
Since then I have been a LONG TIME NUDIST and AANR MEMBER. Over the years I have met MANY NUDISTS VISITING THE BAHAMAS and we have become LIFE LONG FRIENDS through our enjoyment of NUDISM.
My First Social Experience
My first time was June 2012, when I was staying in Columbia, SC for 4 weeks of training. Once I was finished for the day, I would return to my hotel room and strip off all my clothes and be naked in my room for the rest of the day.
One Saturday, I went on the Web to see if I could find I nudist resort or a nude beach. To my surprise I found a nudist RV park 45 minutes outside Columbia named Cedar Creek. I called the office to let them know I was planning to visit by myself and they happily said see you when you get here, just call when you arrive at the gate.
On the way to the nudist resort I was anxious and a little nervous at the same time. Once inside the resort I met Melissa and paid the day fee. She made me feel very welcome and went back to my car to get naked. It was such a great feeling to be naked outdoors,feeling the hot sun on my skin.
I walked down to the pool and everyone was so friendly. I then walked the nature trail to the creek and met two very nice couples. They asked if my wife was with me but told them she was back home and I was in the area for school.
The one couple, I ended up hanging out with them for most of the day. It was a great feeling to be with other nudists just relaxing and having a conversation without a care in the world.
Since my first experience, I went to another nudist resort to run a 5k at Cypress Cove in Florida. After the race I met some great people and plan to go back. This April I plan to go back to Cedar Creek to run my second nude 5K. I can't wait.
I love running nude. I just wish I could do it more often.

Meeting other nudists
I have enjoyed being nude around the house since my early 20s. It really started with sleeping nude; how relaxing. Later, I began to work round the house in the nude and even cleaning my car in the nude.
Once I gained the courage I stepped outside and enjoyed the breeze. What a feeling when totally nude. I continued to become braver by hiking nude in the sand dunes. My only concern was meeting a clothed hiker and have them being offended. The feeling of the sun and breeze one oneself, while nude, is unbelievable.
I wanted to share the feelings and thoughts on being nude but didn't know anyone. My wife is not into nudity but doesn't mind too much my being nude.
I finally went to a nudist club and had no qualms about stripping out of my clothes. Walking around nude without concern is great. One day at the nudist club it was just starting to be warm but I was already nude. I have no problem talking to others, at the club, who are still clothed. That is the great part of a club; you can be nude anytime.
Although I'm not a member I have met some nice individuals. My only regret is that I didn't become a social nudist earlier.
Part 1 Lesson in Social Nudity
On March 1, 2014, I was at my favorite clothing optional area in New Mexico, Faywood Hot Springs 21 miles north of Deming, NM, just off of US Highway 180. I was camped in the clothing optional camp ground having lunch when a group of four women and three men (young people ages 20-30) came in to the area and checked out the pools.
There was no one in the optional pools so they stripped down to their shorts and sports bras and entered the warm pool. It was a cold day and the wind was blowing making it uncomfortable for total nudity, so when I finished my lunch naked in my van, I slipped my sweatshirt on, grabbed my towel and water and headed back up the short path to the wonderful natural thermal soaking pools...bottomless.
As I came up on the pool initially only my face and sweatshirt were visible and all looked, smiled and greeted me, as I got closer to the optional pool, silence and all eyes dropped to the water or looked away. I had to walk around the rim of their pool to reach the hotter one above that feeds hot water overflow into the pool that they were in, so I watched, in silence, all eyes looked away and slight surprised smiles covered their faces as they consciously ignored me.
When I reached the upper pool and removed my sweatshirt to step down into the 108 degree water, I watched and noticed the nervous silence again. Once in the hotter pool, just 25 feet away from the 103 degree pool that they were in, I listened as they began to whisper and laugh lightly. Trying to decide if they should leave the optional area and use the clothing required pools, but the cold New Mexico winds kept them in the warm water even if a naked man was in the area just a few feet up and beyond.
I smiled and listened, they whispered about nudity and several said that they could never do that. One said that she didn't see any thing wrong with it, another said "did you see his penis" and another said "didn't you know this is a nude area" and every one kind of laughed, because signs are posted on the wooden gates as you come into the area. I listened to them discuss strip clubs in El Paso and how the guys thought they're penis's were too small and they would be embarrassed, and couple of the girls were ashamed of their not so thin bodies. I listened and waited for about an hour getting in and out of the 108 degree water was necessary to control my internal body heat, so every 10 minutes or so I would exit the pool for a short time cooling my body and refilling my water bottle with the wonderful sweet spring water,.... cooled of course.... that fed the hot springs. Their conversations soon had turned away from nudity and sex and they began discussing movies and clubs in the El Paso area. I waited and when I felt it was time I emerged from the pool and grabbed towel, sandals and sweatshirt and walked down to the pool they were in. I stood there in front of them, naked all eyes except one, looked away, and I said "Hi, I was listening from the pool above."
