Nudist & Proud

How I Came Out of the Nudist Closet

We live at a nudist park in TN and recently a TV crew from AL came to do a news story. I was one of the folks interviewed for the piece. This is the link to how I came out of the nudist closet on TV(with video and everything!):

Totally A Nudist - Inside and Outside

I have always been a nudist in mind and heart all my life. I was not born into a nudist family, although I wish I had been.

I didn't practice nudism actively until I started working at age 17. It took me a number of years to experience my first nude vacation - at Club Orient on St. Martin. When I arrived there, I was very nervous because that was the first time I had been completely naked. I was nervous that others would comment negatively about how I looked, but they didn't! They accepted me just like I was and talked with me openly and I met some wonderful people while there, including the managers who were nudists from Holland.

As the week progressed, I was very comfortable wearing nothing and by the time the week was over, I hated to put clothes on for the trip home.

I am retired now and am living in a retirement community that is textile. I have to wear clothes when I am outside my apartment but when I'm inside my apartment, I live naked all the time.

I will tell anyone I'm a nudist and proud of it if the conversation lends itself to revealing that about myself to my friends here. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm sure I will be able to "come out of the closet" about my liking to live naked all the time!

Living naked is lots of fun! I don't have to decide what I'm going to wear any day. It sure makes doing laundry easier and less stressful!

For the rest of my life, this is the way I choose to live--naked and free, and proud of it! I'm hoping to marry a nudist lady to share my life with and grow old together. For me "The best is yet to be!"

Meeting a Better Class of People.

I've met some of the coolest people at nudist resorts. Nudists are different than most textiles...better.

A New Lifestyle

I had been married for 34 years when the divorce left me on my own. Looking for a change of lifestyle, one which my ex would never accompany me, I attended a local nudist camp. Being a single male, I was able to visit, but not become a member. I was given a tour of the camp, in the nude, by a married couple, also nude. Talking with this couple confirmed in my mind that this life style is so very open and worth pursuing.

Then later, I took a Florida vacation and found Haulover Beach, south of Miami. The attached picture was a self portrait taken on the beach. Being very cautious to not include any other attendees on the beach, I became sold on this activity, and continue to visit the Florida beach every January/February.

Social Networking

Occasional I use Facebook to tell my friends how I feel about nudism & health, or friends, family, and nudism. I like to be nude. I have no problem being nude in front of my partner, or future children. I would probably allow my kids to run around nude. I've been nude with or around my friends and family... though they don't often understand. Other than that I haven't experienced the larger social aspect of nudity yet. Maybe I'll try it sometime...
