Friends, Family and Nudism

Telling Sis

I have enjoyed being nude for years, but in regards to my family, had always kept my "hobby" to myself. As an adolescent, time at home alone was nearly always spent nude, at least some segment of it. But I never told anyone, especially my parents or sister.

Years later, once I was married, with kids, pursing my career, I always felt a desire to share my naturist proclivities with my sister. I can't explain just exactly why....just because she's my sister and being nude was important to me, so, I wanted to share it.

However, I struggled with just how to bring it up. I didn't just want to blurt it out. So, I wandered around the subject frequently, seeing if she would bite and maybe the discussion would just flow into a conversation where I could talk about it freely. But apparently I was too subtle, because the topic of naturism never really came up.

But one day while we were IM'ing eacother back and forth, I decided to try again. So, I said, "we (my wife and I) were talking about it and we voted you to be the person we know who is most likely to go to a nude beach." She replied back, "You are probably right since I have already been to one." I was totally floored! Here I was trying to let her in on the big secret and she beat me to it!

A series of message exchanges followed to tell me about the story of her one and only trip to Blacks Beach years prior, on a whim more or less. But the door was open and I took full advantage of it. "Would it freak you out if I told you that I was a closet nudist?" I typed it and stared at it for what seemed like forever before hitting the "enter" key. Once I did...,it was one if the most freeing and liberating experiences of my life. We talked about it for hours and I told her dozens of stories -- skinny dipping, nude hiking, nude walks though the woods, the time she almost accidentally "caught" me when I was a kid, etc....It was a wonderful moment.

My sister isn't a naturist or a nudist but she is an outstanding sister and a great listener. She likes hearing about our adventures and even seeing the odd picture or two. While it may not be for her, she definitely "gets it" and sees naturism as a very positive influence on our lives. Being out of the closet with her was one of the best decisions of my life.

New Years Run and Nude Polar Bear Swim

I figured a good way to ring in the new year was with a first run with a polar bear swim in the buff. I would have attended a group event, but I had to work. So as soon as I got done, I went and rang in the new year on my own. I thought it would be pretty cold, and it was, but it was exhilerating to go for a dip in the buff. Cheers!

Nude in the Great Outdoors

To all all newbie nudists, What was your first time nude actually like? That is the first time you were nude socially? How long did it take you to be actually comfortable? Now what do you do? Do you go nude at home as well? Do you answer the door nude? Or do you cover up? What happens when you get so comfortable that you forget that you are nude?

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!
