The phrase, “nude when possible, clothed when practical,” definitely describes me.

My first time experience:

I was vacationing at a resort in the Caribbean. The first two days were spent on the beach sitting in a soggy swimsuit and being chafed by sand. I signed up for a day boat trip and picnic at a beach on an island away from the resort. As we were leaving, I discovered that the excursion was to an island with a nude beach! I decided to go anyway, thinking no way was anybody getting me out of my suit. I stood firm, and in fact, was the last person to give in and shed my swimsuit – I was the last one to get dressed to return to the resort. Why hadn’t someone told me about this sooner? I was hooked, and that was over 10 years ago. The phrase, “nude when possible, clothed when practical,” definitely describes me. I do wear at least shoes when vacuuming the house though as I have a habit of running over my toes with the vacuum cleaner.

I sort of weened my parents on to the idea that i was a nudist and you wouldn’t believe how supportive they were! I’ll just tell you the whole story of my becoming a nudist (and I’d love to hear yours). I had been interested in it for a long time. I started sleeping nude at about 11 or 12 because it was so comfortable. My door has a lock on it so i was never caught. This led to me wanting to be naked in other situations. Right around that time was when we were starting to be forced to change for gym class. I never had any problem with this and even used it as a venue to explore nudism. Almost all of the other girls would change into/out of their bras under their shirts and change their shirts with thier backs to everyone. Some girls even went so far as to bring towels for when they had to remove their bottoms too. I thought this was pretty silly. I mean, we barely even had boobs back then! Well, at first i admit to fit in i did the same. pretending i was ashamed of my body like the other girls. but after a wile i got sick of the charade and while talking to my friend (i think it was my friend suzie, but i don’t really remember) i just whipped off my shirt, unclasped my training bra, and slipped it off without even breaking into my sentence. needless to say i got some stares so i figured, what the heck, might as well go all the way so off the rest came too. after a few days i got some questions about it and just responded with “we’re all girls, it’s no big deal” eventually a few other girls followed suit (or lack of suit, hehe) and by the end of the semester, almost everyone would change at least their tops openly. it was no big deal and we got the job done quicker. After such a positive, I was hooked.

i started walkinga round the house naked when my paretns and brother were out (which was to say not often) and even made a few outings (mostly just skinny dipping in our pool at night). As I’m sure you know, while i love to be naked, i need to be barefoot. i can’te ven remember the last time i’ve warn socks or close toe shoes. anyway, at about the age of 14, i was at a slumber party (4 girls including me) and we were painting each other’s toe nails (each girl would put her foot on the leg of the person to their right and you’d paint the toes of the girl to your left). well, we were just sitting there talking about whatever and my friend (marissa) was telling a story about something and at one part she said her parents were expecting company so she went upstairs to go put on socks. i was totally confused but the other girls didnt’ seem to be, so i said “what? why?” marissa said “your parents let you stay barefoot in front of company?” and another girl chimed in with “are you kidding? when isn’t Sarah barefoot?” at this point i was so confused. “you mean you’re parents make you put on socks whenever company comes over?” and she said “not all the time. if it’s just a neighbor or something they don’t care but they say it’s rude to be barefoot in front of guests you don’t know well” So i said something to the affect of “wow, i’m glad i don’t live in your house. I hate wearing socks” and another girl said “well, you’re lucky your parents let you stay barefoot all the time. mine make me wear socks sometimes too.” and someone else said “yeah, you’r parents are so cool. i bet they let you do whatever you want.”

I’m sure you can imagine what went through my head at that point.

SO i was determined to test the limitations of my parents “coolness”. The next day was saturday which means my dad took my brother to his baseball game. Perfect. That day I came downstairs wearing some jean shorts and my bra. my mom asked me where my shirt was and i said i couldn’t find a clean one and went to watch TV. after a few minutes, i took the shorts off and sat their in only a white bra and panties. my mom passed through the living room and didn’t really say anything. SO far so good. So after a little while still, i slipped the bra off hid it under my chair (a big, black leather comfy chair, i might add. i love that chair). after like 20 minutes or so my mom came through again and gave me a funny look. “I was hot” i told her and she just laughed so I asked “this is ok?” I’ll never forget her response as long as I live as it is probably the best sentence I’ve ever heard. She said “Honey, you can go completely naked for all I care.” YES! EXPRESS VERBAL PERMISSION! I thought this was too good to be true so i said “Really?” and she just chuckled again saying “of course. we’re all family.” I sitll didn’t believe her. SO i called her bluff! I stood up slowly eying her the whole time waiting for her to break out laughing. She didn’t. So i turned my back to her and put my thumbs in the sides of my panties. I slid them down just and inch exposing my tan line and probably a little bit…well, cleavage. “last chance. if you’re joking, say so now” she just smiled. Here goes, i thought and i slowly slid my panties down, bending over. I paused when i reached my toes and looked up and back at my mom. Still nothing. It was all so overwhelming and lasted what seemed like an hour. However it was probably only like four seconds. I suddenly realized that for that 4 seconds i was totally mooning my mom (and as far down as i can go, i was probably showing her more than just my bare ass) so i quickly stood up, took a deep breath, and turned around. “feel better?” she asked me and I gave a quick nod and she just laughed and walked out of the room. it took me a minute but i finally realised what happened. I was officially a nudist! I giggled and pranced around the room a few times (at first i didn’t realize what our big glass doors facing the back offered my neighbors as far as a view. After a moment of giggling like a maniac, i sat back down. The leather felt cool against my bare bum, but i was comfortable. I turned off the TV and pulled the recliner lever and just started thinking about what all this meant. after a few minutes i heard the sound of my mom’s bare feet on tile and she came in and i sort of repositioned myself so she wouldn’t be looking right down my vagina. “it’s ok honey, we’re all family and we’re both girls” and I just sort of smiled, still very uncomfortable. it went on like that for like 20 minutes as my mom passed through the living room (our house is set up so that the living room is like the center of everything. it’s a pain in the ass when it comes to watching TV as people are always walking through). I flicked the TV back on and the last time she came through she was wearing her bath robe. She grabbed my big toe and kind of shook it a bit saying “hey, i’m going to jump in the shower but first i want tos how you something, so when you get to a commercial break, come back to my room. Not long after a commercial came so i headed back to my mom’s room. she wasn’t there so i called her name. “In here! C’mon in!” she called, her voice coming from the bathroom. I opened the door and couldn’t believe what i saw. My mom was standing there completely naked! before i could say anything she said “see? i’ve got them too. now relax! i know you’ve been wanting to do this for a while.” “what? how?” i asked shakily. I was still kind of nervous standing there talking to my mother completely starkers. “your night gowns” she said “you always took them out like you had worn them but they were never wrinkled like they would be if you actually wore them to bed. plus, Dad caught you skinny dipping a few times but we didn’t want to embarass you.” this was a bit much for me and i started to cry a little bit. “mom, i’m a nudist” i said guiltily. Do you know how my sweet (naked) mother responded? She gave me a big hug and said “it’s ok sweetie. don’t appologize or anything. just be yourself.” She also talked to me about how i should be careful when i’m nude so that i don’t offend anyone or put myself in a dangerous position. we talked for about 10 minutes and in that time, i totally forgot i was naked! It was like the most natural thing in the world. Eventually, though, my mom said “well i’m glad we did this. Now if you’ll excuse me, i am not a nudist and would like to take a shower and get dressed.” I gave her a big huge and said “thank you mom.” How many parents would do that for their kid? Strip completely naked just to make them comfortable. My dad was similarly supportive, but he was a bit more protective of me. He didn’t want me to be nude around any of my guy friends (didnt’ want me nude around my brother at first but my mom convinced him it was harmless) and certainly not if they were having company (hehe, they said i could still be barefoot in front of anyone, i asked just to spite marissa and i teased her about it later).

She asked me if I was open to the idea of nudism

Let me just start off by saying a little about myself. I’m a 25 year old male and was brought up in a home where nudity wasn’t prohibited, but it was understood that nudity was a personal thing. I can’t honestly remember ever seeing anyone naked growing up. I did however like to be naked by myself and occasionally swim nude in our pool. I could hardly consider myself a nudist.

Now onto my first experience, which happened just this past weekend. My aunt and uncle invited me to go with them to the desert for the weekend to ride their quads and 4×4. Basically just a getaway. It had been a little over a year since I had seen them and we got to catching up about what’s new in our lives. It was then that they told me that they were trying nudism. The way that my aunt said it was kind of “tongue-in-cheek” so I thought she was kidding. So I said, “If you do it, I’ll do it,” in a joking tone. Nothing else was said about it during the rest of the drive.

After a day of riding and having a great time, I went into their travel trailer to get cleaned up while my uncle headed off into town to get more gas for the next day. My aunt was getting cleaned in the shower so I just started watching tv. After a few minutes, she comes out of the small shower completely nude. After taking a brief look, my instincts were to look away at the tv. She then sat directly across from me and started running a comb through her hair. Having never seen her like this, I saw that she was in tremendous physical shape for a woman in her mid forties. Noticing that I seemed uncomfortable, she asked if she should cover up. I told her that she didn’t have to, it was her trailer and she should do as she pleased. I then got up and took a shower. After exiting the ridiculously tiny bathroom (fully clothed), I took the same seat across from her and started to watch tv again. She asked me if I was open to the idea of nudism and what I thought about it. We started chatting and I noticed that I got used to her being naked, and it became easier to talk to her. She had covered herself with a blanket from the waist down, so it seemed that talking to my “topless” aunt was easier than talking to my “totally nude” aunt. I had told her about my “closet nudist” activities in the past. She told me that social nudism is far easier if you just ‘go for it’ rather than second guessing whether you’ll fit in. By this time, my uncle had made it back and was jumping into the shower. I told her that my main worry was getting an erection, in front of my aunt no less. She told me that that’s a common fear and that it probably wouldn’t happen. But if it did, it’s not something to be embarrassed about, it’s a normal thing. She then got up to make dinner in the kitchen/living area (yea, it’s that small!). After our conversation, I didn’t really mind that she was totally nude again. Paying more attention to preparing the meal, she asked if I was interested in trying social nudism with them. I told her that I would like to. So using her ‘just go for it’ motto, I stripped off everything right then. “Good for you” she said. Almost instantly, my fear was realized. As soon as that last stitch was off, and she turned around, I got an instant full-on erection. She just looked at me in the eye and said “relax, the hard part’s over.” I sat down and went back to trying to concentrate on the television show. After a few deathly, embarrassing moments, I realized something very interesting. I did not get an erection because I was turned on by my aunt (thank god!), I got one because I was naked “in front of her.” Having never been in this position before, I was reacting to it with a sexual feeling, where it had nothing to do with sex. Once I realized that there was nothing sexual about nudism, I relaxed a lot.

We went to a nude beach the first time when I was 17

We went to a nude beach the first time when I was 17 (two years ago). Before we went there the only times people saw me in the nude was getting changed for PE at school. I wasn’t going to go nude at the beach. I took my swimming costume and mum and dad said I could keep it on if I wanted to. Seeing them in the nude was going to be funny because I hadn’t seen that before.

When we got to the beach there were nude people everywhere. I laughed to start with because it looked funny to see them walking around like that. We walked along the beach looking for a place to stop. It was hard to find a place because it was busy. I had my swimming costume on already and so I took off my t-shirt and shorts and went in for a swim. I didn’t want to see mum and dad nude then and got away from them before they got a chance to take their clothes off. While I was playing in the sea I could see where they were and could see they were nude. I stayed in the water for a bit then went back to mum and dad. Dad was laying down on his back and it was funny seeing him nude. Mum was nude as well but that wasn’t as weird as seeing dad. I got embarrassed seeing them like that and went back to the sea for another swim. It wasn’t as bad seeing other people nude.

When I was playing around in the sea I started talking and playing around with some other girls there. They were all in the nude. We sat near the edge of the sea talking to each other. I told them it was the first time I had gone there. They had been going there for ages. I said I was too scared to take my swimsuit off. They didn’t try to get me to and said it was up to me if I left it on or not. We walked to where they mum and dad were. When we got to where they were they got their towels and dried off. I could see that I was nearly the only one on the beach that wasn’t nude. Their mum and dad didn’t say anything about me wearing a swimsuit. They must have through it was funny because hardly anyone else had one on.

A bit later I went back to where mum and dad were. It wasn’t as bad seeing them nude that time. Everyone was like it so didn’t look as strange. I decided I was going to be nude as well and took off my swimsuit. That felt funny to start with. When it was off I sat down on my towel so people couldn’t see as much. It felt better because my swimsuit was wet and was all sticky. It only took 5 minutes to get dried off my the sun. I stayed on my towel a bit and went back to the sea when I saw the other girls go back that I was talking to. They didn’t say anything about me being nude that time. It was as if they didn’t care less.

I could see dad was talking to someone near the sea and I went to where they were. I stood there with dad and felt shy about standing there in the nude. I kept looking at the man he was talking to and checked to see if he was looking at my body. I don’t think he looked at it even once. It was like I had clothes on and he didn’t stare or anything like that. All the time before we went to the beach I was shy about people seeing me in the nude and said I would keep my swimsuit on. In the end it was more embarrassing wearing my swimsuit there. Nobody was looking at my body.

Im 20, female, and living at home

Well I am fairly new to calling myself a nudist as I was doing some research on the topic for school and I realised that I have a very similar view point as many of you (I hope). I realised that apparently it isn’t normal to walk around your house nude every chance you get, or to occasionally tan au natural. But I love it. Every chance I get, meaning when my parents go to the cottage I am nude until the moment they come back (Im 20, female, and living at home ). My only major question is from a religious front I have not devoted myself to any set religion, nor do I ever want to. I live by my own morals and I strongly beleive that the human body (male or female) is beautiful and regardless of shape size and colour I do not see why anyone should hide themselves behind clothes when not necessary. I strongly beleive that just spending a day nude or even sleeping in the nude can change anyones body image of themselves for a positive turn. Well thats about it for me but I would be very interested in hearing what people have to say, as I would not normally call myself a nudist but it seems liek there are many friendly people on here who share the common interest.
Hope to hear from ya!

Chiara – written by Chiara

I’ve been what many would describe as a nudist for the whole of my life. The very strong desire to be naked has always been there right from when I was a little girl. One of my earliest childhood memories is of my mom chasing me down the driveway with a dress that I’d removed and tried to hide down the back of the couch. I was running as fast as my legs would carry me naked and screaming. That little episode, which at the time appeared to be a normal childhood tantrum, turned out to be the initial signs of something that would be with me throughout the whole of my childhood. Even now, at the age of 17, my need to be totally naked is as strong as ever.


Mom called them clothing tantrums when I was younger. No matter how much she tried, when I got into one of those moods there was no way on this earth she was going to get me to keep my clothes on. I was like a mad thing. The only thing on my mind was getting my clothes off no matter what it took. She didn’t make a big deal of it and left me to do as I pleased pretty much. When you’re a kid nobody much cares if you are naked. Things became more complicated once at school. Mom was called into school to collect me so many times I lost count. The other kids thought I was funny getting undressed like that. Some even thought it was a cool way of going to go home early. I didn’t think it was cool. It always resulted in some form of punishment.

I was sent to see a psychologist and within three months I was becoming a normal human being. My urge to get naked did lessen; the control I had developed to go ahead and remove my clothes had been increased. That didn’t stop me from getting naked and every opportunity, I might add. Mom laid out a set of guidelines. Nudity at home was always allowed. In the back yard it depended on the time of year. During the summer I appeared to be a (mostly) normal kid and wanting to get a good tan. In the colder months it looks plain bizarre to be running around naked. My mom was more bothered by the image of our family than my feeling of well being.

When I hit puberty the rules were changed and I had to be dressed at home when people called. It’s funny how developing pubic hair and breasts can make innocent nudity appear sexual. Yeah, I was developing sexually but why should that make any difference to innocent nudity? Being a moody teenager I was able to get my own way eventually. I set about my plan one evening after being banished to my room.

I had no hang ups over my physical appearance. I’d been naked in front of so many people that it didn’t make me feel embarrassed in the smallest amount. I could easily walk out the front door and down our street totally naked.

My protest started. I didn’t wear a stitch of clothing around the home for a month. If the doorbell rang I made sure it was me that was going to answer it. Each time I was sent to my room and each time I opened the shutters and sat at the window reading in full view of the street. If nobody else was home I went into the back yard and read my book. There was nothing she could do to stop me no matter how much she tried. She eventually caved in. I could be naked at home, even around visitors in exchange for leaving the door for someone else to get and keeping away from windows!

Six months ago I moved out and into my own apartment. I’m working a paying my way through college. For the first time I’ve got the freedom to do as I want. In a lot of ways having my own place to live makes my desire to be naked stronger. I know what once I get home all my clothes can come off and I can make myself free again. This means while I’m away from home my body is crying out to be let free.

My friends are totally cool. When they call my clothes stay off. None of them have a problem with my nudity. Some of my friends have sun baked naked in the back yard with me. They may one day come to the lake with me and find out how amazing it is to swim naked once they find the courage.

  1. I have done this for many years now and it wasn’t until recently that we bought a travel trailer. That actually improves the opportunities to do this as the trailer can be positioned to screen/shield us from the rest of the campground if we position it right. I love the outdoors and that is why I enjoy naturism so much I feel so much more a part of the natural world when I am nude in nature. I used to be a member of a group called the Camping Bares of San Diego great bunch of people they introduced me to many unique and off the beaten path places on public land that was nude friendly in fact in over 15 years of going on camping trips I only had one or two negative reactions. I have even taken to nude hiking and find it very refreshing but normally I do that in truly remote areas not accessible via a vehicle at least one or two miles from a road. As I recognize the effects of ageing on my body I will no doubt do more RV type camping but I hope to be able to do quite a bit of day hiking for years to come. My wife was never very interested in nudism but she has enjoyed it at times she is more comfortable in the company of her own family nude around the house not so much in favor of nude beaches or resorts but she has in the past. I think in the future this is a good way to compromise in that we can enjoy some comfortable nudity in a nice quiet campground with all the comforts of home. If I can manage a few trips to the nearby nude resort then so much the better. P.S. By the way allnaturalwife, if you are talking about San Onofre I have a tip for you. Try to get a pass to camp just down the road at the RV spot on base at the Las Pulgas exit. It is a great spot and nude camping there is a snap! Plus you are just a short bike or hike away from the beach. The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. — Robert Frost

We have been nude camping for over 20 years. ANC35228 if you use some common sense picking and setting up your camp you can be nude the entire time your there. We spent 14 days on one trip nude. We only dressed to go get wood, drop of payment for the site and two trips out for supplies. Like I said I think this is a great way for newbies and home nudists to get outdoors and enjoy them selfs without the crowds. As well as camping my wife and I like hiking in the nude, and I like to ride my mountain bike nude. Anniebare we have had people make comments to us while camping, hiking and I get them all the time because I ride my bike, mid week day mornings, on the country back roads around the area we live. None of the comments we have ever heard, were negative about our nudity. The comment made to you I would not take as negative. We believe lots of people like the nudist idea, they just need to stop thinking and start doing. The most common statement we hear is “I wish I had the guts to do that ( be nude)”. To which we reply,” What’s stopping you”. We can, and are, changing perceptions of friends, family and even strangers who see us enjoying some form of nudism. Being a little bolder with our nudity, in a none offensive manner, gets people thinking and talking about nudists. Anniebare, your being topless may have started a discussion where these guys, decide they too have to admit to enjoying being nude at home, and that if, like you, they want to be nude out camping, why not.
