There’s a certain comfort level that comes with being in our natural state, sans threaded materials. You may be fine with walking around the house in your birthday suit, or even having friends over for a clothing-optional pool party, but what about sharing your nudism with strangers? For some, the idea of venturing to a nudist resort can be intimidating at best and downright scary at worst. If it’s your first time to a nudist resort, here’s a little prepper so you’ll know what to expect.
Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin
You already know you’re okay with being naked, but that’s in the comfortable surroundings of home with people who accept and love you. Really, though, what’s different about going out to a nudist resort? Everyone else will be just as naked as you are, and everyone is there to enjoy the day, the events, the pool…they’re likely struggling with some of the same issues you are. Just relax and know that you are among friends, even if you’ve not yet met them.
Know the Expectations
When you go to a fancy restaurant, you need to know which fork to use first. Likewise, there are certain rules of etiquette at a nudist resort. Most of them are pretty obvious: be respectful of others, don’t stare, don’t touch, and don’t sit on furniture without a towel between you and your bare skin. And for goodness sake, don’t show arousal. Men are often hesitant to visit a nudist resort because they feel they’ll be walking around with a continual erection. Usually, though, it doesn’t take long to realize that skin is just another outfit and it isn’t much different than walking around in clothes.
Plan to Have Fun
If this is your first time at a nudist resort, it might help to have a plan. Do some research on the place to know what events are coming up. Maybe you’re more the type who likes to enter under the radar; if so, go on a lazy day when not much is happening. If you want to do more than just dip your toes in the pool (literally and figuratively), visit a nudist resort during an event, such a volleyball tournament or Halloween party. Sometimes, it’s good to get lost in the crowd.
No matter how you plan to visit a nudist resort for the first time, keep an open mind and be ready to have fun. Nudists are a fun-loving group who will likely welcome you into the fold with a smile and laughs. Just keep your eyes up!
