Although I can’t exactly remember my very first nude experience I do know I was around 10 or 11

Although I can’t exactly remember my very first nude experience I do know I was around 10 or 11 when I started feeling the urge to be nude. Like many of the first time stories on this site I started out by sleeping nude. My parent’s room was across the hall and they had to pass my room to get down stairs. At some point I decided I did not care if they saw me sleeping nude. They never said anything if they did see me. My dad slept nude as long as I can remember so I doubt it was a big deal to anyone.

That was as far as they knew anything though. When I was young I liked the feeling of being without clothes but did not know exactly why or that there was this lifestyle called nudism. For many years I thought I was weird, and had no clue other people like this as much as I. I never let anyone know either. I did know about skinny dipping and once while camping with my “way older” brother and his family and friends a bunch of the adults went skinny dipping after dark. In a public State Park none the less. None of the kids went in though. He was a product of the 60’s. *smile*

My nudist tendencies faded in and out over the years to follow. I always slept nude and after getting my own vehicle there were times when I skinny dipped in lakes or streams when I was alone. However; there was never a time I remember an all out urge to be nude every day. That is kind of funny though, I can remember being nude in my room a lot and liking it very much.

It actually wasn’t until I was about 21 or 22 that being nude became a strong calling. I was married by that time and had a baby girl. Ohhh she was so cute. My wife however was not much into being nude. She wasn’t against me being nude she just didn’t seem to notice or care about it. I was still young and hadn’t come to full grips with my self esteem yet, so I was only nude while I was alone for the most part or after a shower or other obvious reasons. We did runaround the house nude sometimes late at night watching movies and such. I liked being nude but I still thought I was a little weird. I would drive home from work late at night and get naked for the drive once in a while. It was only about ten minutes but it felt good so I enjoyed it as much as I could. Later I got a job working construction and ended up buying a motor home to live in while I was working away from home, which was about 11 months out of the year. I was gone 5 or 6 days a week most of the time, but I would drive home on the weekends. This was when I really came to grips with my desire to be nude. Living alone in my motor home was great. I could be nude whenever I wanted and that was most of the time. I even started driving to and from work nude quite often. The drive was one to three hours depending on where the job site was. In the heat of summer I drove this way a lot more. It was my escape from tension, I loved it. Sometimes I would stop along deserted highways and walk around or climb a hill or something just to prolong my nude time. After a few years of working away from home all the time, and having other marital problems we ended up getting a divorce.

Now I found myself with my daughter every other weekend and a couple nights a week. I quit the traveling job and started working a local one. My relationship with my daughter was always good, but now it was awesome. I got to see her more and we could do fun stuff after work and I could go to all her school functions and everything was great. Now I found myself with much less nude time. This started to bum me out after a while. I love my daughter more than anything in the world and loved our time together but I felt I had to wear clothes. I had never seen any nudist web sites, or how whole families go nude together. I did have some kind of idea about nude beaches but there are none in my state and didn’t even know where one was. So all this family nudity and lifestyle stuff that most of the readers of this site have read, I had NO clue. So after a while I started to feel guilty about having fleeting thoughts of not wanting my daughter around quite so much. This really disturbed me; I love her so much and want her around all the time. I had to make a decision. Was it possible to have the best of both worlds, could I really be nude in front her? Remember, I had never seen anything about nudism on the net before. After much consideration I knew I could, and there was nothing wrong with it.

Here is how I did it. Just like the articles of others on this site and many other sites, I started by not getting dresses immediately after a shower, and running around in a towel more. She would make joking comments about, “put something on dad.” Then one day after a shower I was sitting at my desk with the towel under me but not around me. She walked in and instantly looked away. “Dad!” she said, I just said,”It’s OK and there is nothing wrong with being nude.” She walked out without looking at me. We are always together in my room and we talk allot and are very close. So in a few minutes she came back in and looked at me kind of funny, thought about it, you could just see the gears moving in her head, and I said, “I wasn’t putting clothes back on right now and that it is OK”. It took a couple of days like this before she got comfortable with me being nude. It was a fast acceptance though, after a few days she never really even noticed and things never changed between us and there has never been any issues come from it. In the beginning she was shy about looking at my nude body, after a while I would catch her looking at “that area” once in a while. It is only natural to look at such things and I feel it is actually healthy for a child to see their parent’s nude. (read other web sites) It sure took the curiosity out of boys for her. From much reading on the subject, curiosity is what leads to sex early in teenagers. (This is a whole other story)

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!

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.

Nude Camping

Years ago my husband and I would pack up our tent etc. and go find some out of the way place to camp so we could be nude some where other then our property. We got away from doing this, normal stuff jobs and so on. Last year we bought a new travel trailer. We found that if we stay away from the main tourist sites, we can set up in camp grounds during the week and quite freely camp in the nude. Two trips this year we discovered camp grounds that we were able to set up in and spend Monday to Friday in the nude. I’m interested to know if others have a tryed this and what type of experiences you had? Did you have any contact with other campers? How or did you have to deal with being nude?

We did a fair amount of camping and had no problem being nude before ever having heard of nudism or naturism, but I was rarely nude. My whole life, I have had an issue with being nude (with other people outside my family) because of the concern that they might get the wrong idea, but I never felt that was how it should be. I mean, why should the people who sexualize our bodies (or who abhor their own bodies to avoid that) be the ones to dictate normality to the rest of us? Wearing clothes to appease their sick minds is an aberration that mades me feel slimy. I hated it. I still do. I wonder why other people do not hate it too. What so delights me about a nudist/naturist setting is that we have the right idea. We insist that our bodies are healthy and wholesome in the natural state. That is so positive, so in tune with nature and the kind of natural experience camping seems to be aiming at. I love it, and I know more people would love it too if they had the chance and gave themselves the chance. Camping at an AANR resorts is an experience every person should have IMHO. I think we owe a big hug to the people who have kept nudism alive and made this possible.

Thanks Sue! I almost always go nude in ordinary public campgrounds and until your post I thought I was the only one who did! I do the same thing as you. I go up in the middle of the week to a campground I know will not be crowded at that time. As soon as my little tent goes up, my clothes come off, and I stay that way until it gets too chilly or the bugs start to bite. In all the years I have done this, I have never had any problems. Quite often I will have the whole campground to myself or else I pick a secluded spot, and can spend the day sunning, skinny-dipping in the creek, foraging for wild greens, or just sitting under a tree and reading a book, all without the bother of clothes. During those times of the year when the campgrounds get too crowded to get away with that, I simply bring my backpack and hike a few miles into the backcountry to set up camp away from everyone else. I have been doing this sort of thing for over 30 years and simply love it. Annie

On the two trips I mentioned we had no other people in the camp sites. On a trip in early September there was only one couple in their late fifties on another site. We were able to set up a fair distance from these people, and spent our first day nude in our camp. On the second morning my husband rode through the camp grounds on his mountain bike, and when he came back he told me he must have caught the gentleman off guard as he was sitting in a lawn chair and had not quite had enough time to cover up the fact he was nude with a towel.We spent the day nude as usual. Late in the afternoon my husband spotted the gentleman walking his dog down the road, he was wearing shorts and sneakers. I disappeared in to our trailer but my husband just sat in his chair and made no attempt to cover up. The gentleman stopped talk to my husband for a few minutes and left. I watch as he walked only a short distance stopped, remove his shorts, and carried on walking now in the nude.My husband told me that the man told him that his wife and him picked this camp ground as it gave them the chance to be out nude, and that seeing we were of the same mind set was just wonderful. We spent four more days at this site and ran in to these people several times, them and us always nude. I think this activity is more prevalent then most people think.

  1. Our family spends a lot of time camping nude. Wether it be as a family or just a “weekend getaway” for me and my husband. Nowadays we pretty much stick to campgrounds and nudist clubs where we are free to be nude. But at the nude beach we frequent, the campgrounds themselves are not nude. During the summer we try to get one of the campsites that is as close as possible to the nude part of the beach. Although during the day nudity is difficult around the campsites( other than of course inside a trailer or RV) we are down on the beach anyway. Then when it gets dark and we go back to the site, we are usually nude despite the fact that technically you are not supposed to be. We have been doing this for years without incident. If you find a good site, its not an issue. In more rural areas and such, it is possible to camp nude, even at “non-nude campgrounds” as long as you are carefull. We have been camping in the mountains and not seen anyone for days at a time. Although thecnically we were not at a nudist venue, there was no one there anyway so it didnt matter. Jenn
