First-Time Nudist Experience

First Time For us both

A few years ago, I started to be drawn to social nudity. I loved being nude since I was around 10. I had to sneak out of my pj's when I slept, then sneak back into them. Purely a textile family.

Well, around the time I turned 48 I decided I wanted to know more, and started surfing sites. AANR, etc. From this I found Hidden River Resort in north Florida.

I would get info from the AANR site, and various Christian Nudist forums, and then forward that info to my wife. She was open to trying. So one day we decided to head to Hidden River Resort in north Florida.

We arrived and with a lot of trepidation, got a tour of the facilities. Afterward we paid the fees, and drove onto the property.

Within just a few moments, I was undressed and feeling free. My wife however went much slower. She had shorts on and a towel around her top.

We decided to walk the paths first. As we walked she asked how I felt. "Isn't it weird?" I shared how freeing it was. We then saw another nude couple, and nothing happened! We said hello - and talked a few moments - and it wasn't weird. It was really very natural. As we left them, my wife's towel came off.

Then she looked at me and said "Lets go to the pool." I was surprised - she had to be nude.

We went back to the car, and she freely undressed, and we walked to the outdoor showers. "Naked as jay birds."

It was great - we spent a few hours in the pool, hanging out and talking. What a great day trip - wonderful folks, and the hostess was top notch!

If you arer worried about getting aroused, or others seeing you - don't be. Once you get your clothes off - we all look the same!

Thanks AANR for the info you provided. Thank you Hidden River for the great intro and the ease of which you helped us into our comfort zone. Thank you CNC and the other Christian forums for helping us see that we can still have our faith - and enjoy social nudity.

Now - we're always looking forward to our next visits, and we're slowly introducing our family and friends to the lifestyle.

Why Did It Take Me So Long?

On a cruise of northern European capitols several years ago, we spent a day riding bikes along the Baltic coast near Warnemunde. We paused to look at the sea and realized we were above a nude beach. First, we saw a young and fit couple. Then we saw people who looked like me, older and not so fit.

I decided that I needed to skinny-dip for the first time in my adult life. My wife didn't join me then. At the water's edge, I removed my clothing and within minutes felt comfortable and free while swimming in the sea.

Since then, we've joined AANR, visited clubs in the U.S. and Europe and I regularly skinny-dip throughout the summer. I've found that if I swim early enough in the morning, I have the lake to myself. Now I can't believe that I had to become old in order to feel comfortable in my skin.

First Time Experience

This might seem a bit odd, but I first got interested in nudism when I was about ten years old.I read the Adam & Eve story and wondered what it would be like to be nude outside. So I went out to a patch of woods near our house and took off my clothes.

It felt great with the sun and air on my bare body.I was hooked from then on.I still go for walks in the woods for a nude hike.I started going to a nudist camp in southwest PA called White Thorn Lodge. I'm planning to join WhiteThorn Lodge this year.

I also have being to Avalon Resort in WV.They have a nude motorcycle show there in the summer. It is always a good time.

Afraid, But For What?

Every summer from my late 20s to 30s I would go to the office of Goodland in Hackettstown, NJ and ask all kinds of questions and chicken out and go home. Finally the year that I turned 40 I got brave enough to actually enter the gate and find out what I was missing.

When I disrobed in the parking lot I felt totally relaxed. This is the first time that I went into the pool and let the suns rays dry me and felt the breeze gently caress my entire body. The feeling was quite refreshing.

Today I go to Rock Lodge with my fiance. Rock Lodge was her first experience. At Rock Lodge I experienced two firsts. It was the first time that I walked in the rain nude and I also had the opportunity to drive my car that way too. We find the people there to be very friendly and we feel very relaxed there.

What I was afraid of I will never know but I am glad I took that first step many years ago.

Proud To Be an Advocate

Having been exposed to nudist magazines as a child, I always embraced the joy of being nude. It wasn't until I went off to college that I was able to actually join a club in Spokane, WA. What a thrill being able to be with other like-minded people of all ages. Upon moving to Seattle I had the opportunity to join another club in which I attended monthly swims.

While I'm kinda isolated from the west side clubs and resorts here in Oregon, I more than ever committed to the nudist lifestyle and promote it every chance I get with family and friends. I can't think of a better way to spend time home or when the weather is nice outside. Once you've tried it, you'll never look back.
