Is Nudism for You? Questions to Ask Yourself

Is Nudism for You? Questions to Ask Yourself

Although you might be perfectly comfortable stripping down and letting it all hang out in the comfortable surroundings of your home, would you really call yourself a nudist? Some might; others might not. Here are some questions to help you determine if you are ready to make that next step to visit a nudist party or resort and consider yourself among the TrueNudists.

How often are you naked at home?

If your birthday suit the most comfortable outfit you own? If you sleep naked, walk around the house naked in the morning, stay naked as long as possible after your morning shower, and are ready to strip down as soon as you get home from work, you may be a nudist. Nudists are comfortable in their own skin and like the feeling of being free, especially when theyre at home and no one is around.

What do you do when someone suggests getting naked?

No, were not talking about an attractive someone who wants to enjoy your naked body. We mean that friend who suggests a quick skinny-dip when you come across a swimming hole during a hot summer hike. Or that crazy friend who says you should get naked and run across the backyard (or neighborhood!). If youre the first to start stripping down, you may be a nudist.

How do you feel about clothing-optional events?

When you receive an invitation to a clothing-optional party, are you picking up the phone to RSVP? Certainly, clothing optional means that you can wear clothes or not, so its a great way to test the waters to find out if you should really refer to yourself as a nudist. Sometimes, just being around people who are willing to take it all off can normalize the situation and make you feel like the odd person out if you keep your clothes on. Once youre comfortable taking off your clothes at a party, you may just be a nudist.

Do your vacations center around places you can be naked?

You know youre truly a nudist when your travel plans incorporate the ability to wander around in public without restrictive clothing. If you take day trips to the nearby nudist resort, plan vacations to warm areas with nude beaches, or seek out a clothing-optional cruise, you may be a nudist.

So what do you think? Are you a bona fide member of the community? Can you call yourself a nudist and feel good about it? What other questions would you add to confirm that you are, indeed, a nudist?

  • I'm not sure I can answer all of the comments with a yes. Since I was a little kid I was exposed to different kids who wore clothes differently or slept nude, and have experimented skinny dipping-but was not so comfortable yet. Have started sleeping nude occasionally and like the free feeling, and sometimes when home alone go part or full nude. No nude or c/o beaches here, but would go nude if someone asked and think a private c/o event/beach would be o.k. but "away," not "out" with neighbours etc.
    • I realize that I have a preference of being naked since my childhood. I wasn t grown up in a naturist family, but liked to walk naked at home in my own room at the changing room of the sport school. For me nudity became more and more normal, but I did not realize that I was a 'true nudist'. Since some years I prefer being naked more and more and I realized being a real nudist. I joined a naturist club. I want to be open being a nudist to everyone, but I must admit that this is a next challenge.
      • I enjoy being naked as often as I can and even more so if I can be in a social environment with others who enjoy being naked too. I have been sleeping naked most of my life and find every opportunity to remove my clothes when I can. I even started a local naked hiking group in my area.
        • I stay naked for 24 hours at home, and it made me totally comfortable to be without any clothes when I was in a naturist resort in Thailand last year, where I was able to enjoy the beauty of nature and chat with other nudists. And being naked around working staff there who were wearing clothes didn't bother me at all, which proved I am a true nudist. After coming back, I even tried something more exciting that I ran naked on a stree not very populous on an early morning. What do you think, everyone?
          • Thank you. I know I am
            • I sleep naked also. But I hang out a home naked as much as possible, which hasn't been very often and usually very briefly these days. I've considered myself a naturist for about 15 years now, but not discounting the curiousity before then. My first social encounter was Haulover Beach in Florida in 2005 just before hurricane Rita hit. Since then I've only been to a few house parties and three nudist resorts. So, though I'm rarely in a socially nude setting, do I still consider myself a nudist or naturist?
              • I sleep naked always, I spend as much time at home naked as I can. I sun and enjoy the pool naked. My wife is not comfortable naked. So I only could enjoy these activities when she was at work. But for the last year or so she has been ok with me naked when she is around. I would love to attend a nudist event but I can't find any in the area. I keep trying. Maybe someday
                • The above story is me almost to the letter.
                  • Interesting questions, Have been nudist in young years, In north america since many years, repressed N, Happily married, Sleeping now nude, and mornings in home, walking bush for me Soo good. Now my wife joined sleeping nude and thoroughly enjoys it, Also hangs out in the morning just in a gown. Still connects nudity in a social setting with infidelity. For my part i wpould like to have nudist friends, But respect my wives hangups. As retirees time is running out. Any ideas for a next step? Thanks for ...
                    • There is no doubt in MY mind I am a true nudist. I can honestly answer YES to all the questions listed. When at home I am naked as often as possible (less during the winter months since once the temp gets below 70 I feel cold) No one needs to ask me twice if I want to get naked. I don't care if others are clothed in a clothing op environment as long as they don't care if I am naked. And, yes, my preferred vacation is going to any place that allows nudity. I love nudist camp grounds.
