Friends, Family and Nudism

Why are Americans so up-tight about being nude?

My first experience was when I was called to a Nudist Resort 9 miles from my home on a weekend for some people that had locked their keys in the car. After I got them in, the campground owner asked me if I'd like a tour and I was impressed at the comfort of the people there when they met me fully clothed. When I got home I told my wife about it and she suggested that we go there sometime as she had always wondered about being nude in public and not just in our private backyard. Our first time, a week later, was a lovely experience that neither of us will forget, and how comfortable we felt, and now we are hooked and love being nude in public, and want to host some indoor parties for people that would like to be nude in our cold winters.

Had friends try nude for the first time and they loved it

I have always been a nudest and I love it. I built my own nude hide away in my back yard. Nice tall fiance i love tanning in the nude. Where I live I have told all my neighbors that I am a nudest and if you come over always let out a yell, or what you see is what you see. Over time I have had quite a few neighbors ask me how can you be nude outdoors? And have you ever been nude around others? I tell them the truth yes nude in front of others is know big deal. And if they would try it they would love the experience.
Of course most the guys say my wife will never expose herself to another guy. I reply being nude does not me a sex orgy. Being nude feels great and the feel of freedom is unbelievable. So one summer day I was out back tanning when I herd my neighbor couple call out Rick is it ok to come on around?
I replayed sure give a second. They came on around and into my nude privet area and set down. They both said we didn't mean to disturb you but we have been talking about all you have told us about your nude life style. First how do we do this, being nude? I told them first you need to relax, and secondly you sure you want to be nude in front of me for the first time?
They both responded with we did like you said we try it at home, and it felt good. We both wanted to go outside but unlike you we have no privet place to try it. I could tell they were both very nervous. I told them both if you want i will go inside and you two can be nude here by your selves. They said no we trust you and you can help us. I said ok the only way to do this is to just do it.
Lets give it a go, I just stood up and removed my shorts. There you are here i am all nude no big deal. They both could only stair,and then said you are nude in front of us. I said it is no big deal it feels great. Well first his wife just stood up and off came her top. I said see feel great doesn't it.She said sure does then off came her shorts nude as can be. she told her husband get your cloths off.
He stood up and took his cloths off. I told them both you guys look very nice. they did relax and we enjoyed the day. Now I have real nude neighbors. Life is good.


My wife's mother invited us up to enjoy her weekend lakefront rental. Knowing our preference of outdoor attire, she cautioned us that the porch would be visible from the lake. She did ask that when out on the porch that my wife wear one of her signature hats and sunglasses. (My mother in law has a grand collection of hats.) She figured that if a passer-by were to see anything, that, in her words, "I don't mind everyone thinking that I'm free spirted dame, and I want them to be impressed with how I look 30 years younger in my birthday suit."

Wife now a nudist

I have been a nudist since I was about 16 years old when I discovered a local beach near me in CA that allowed nudism. 7 years later I met my wife who at first could not embrace the lifestyle. She had no problem being nude at home, but the beach was another issue. She would come to the beach with me, but remained in her bikini.

25 years later from that, my wife is now a comfortable nudist. We bought a house with a secluded yard that is 100% private. We are nude outside most times as the temp in southern California is always nice.

We have been to some resorts and beaches and my wife is nude most of the time. We have two kids who are being raised nude as well.

I am happy I did not force this on my wife and she eventually got into the lifestyle. I love the fact she did not stop me and enjoyed it with me as she could. This of course meant at first going to clubs or beaches where nudism was optional.

Thanks dad

When my father, at 78, announced that he was a nudist, the only surprise was that I was momentarily surprised. It was never a secret that he slept nude, and enjoyed a good skinny dip whenever he could. We never put a title on it. His own father was a man often described as always having a great tan, and never having a tan line. Grand dad's funeral arrangements even stipulated that he was to be buried in the same clothes that he entered the world in. Now that's a nudist! My siblings and I never took part in any kind of family nudity, but always had an accepting attitude towards nudism. Nude beaches were checked off of all our bucket lists, even though it had been years since I had been to one. I often thought how nice it would be to have some nude time in the outdoors again, reminiscing with my wife about our nude beach honeymoon, but as time passes opportunities seem to fade.
So, when I told my wife that dad had announced his nudist status, I was thrilled to hear that her concerns were not about his state of dress, but were concens over his driving to his new favorite nudist resort. She immediately, and matter of factly suggested that I should drive him there. We began searching for more local destinations. For him, of course, we rationalized. We would need to check them out before though, naturally.
With his simple admission of his enjoyment of nudism, he started a healthy conversation amongst the rest of his family. Some of us are supportive and are rekindled in our own enjoyment of being in the all together, some feign shock, but all are interested in one way or another. His wife is one of the least engaged individuals in enjoying nudism unfortunately, but at least the conversation has been started, and she can hear from supportive voices.
So, thank you dad, for starting a conversation that has had such a positive ripple effect, and if there is a lesson to be learned, it could be to not wait so long in being open about nudism.
Once you are comfortable in your own skin for your own enjoyment you can become comfortable in promoting the acceptance of nudism for the enjoyment of others.
