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 TrueNudists.com 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?

  • There are many occasions I wish the local clothing optional beach was a nudity required beach. Yesterday, July 4, 2022 I went to the local nude beach. I arrived around 10:15 AM and the parking lot was almost full. There have been days when I went to the beach and the lot was full; obviously disappointed. When on the beach I see about 50% are not nude. What draws them to this beach; maybe to stare at the nudists. But my biggest complaint is that all the parking spaces have been taken by those not being nude.
    • Do your vacations center around places you can be naked? I am retired and on a fixed income so vacations have become rare events. Fortunately I live 19 miles from Gunnison Beach, a clothing optional beach in NJ. I have a part time job and can go to the beach anytime I want. If I could afford a vacation naked beaches or outdoor places are something I do research on.
      • How do you feel about clothing-optional events? I would say yes to any event but it doesn't mean I would attend all events
        • What do you do when someone suggests getting naked? In most cases I would approve but it depends on the person suggesting it.
          • How often are you naked at home? Typically only nude at home during the warmer weather. I wear clothes to keep warm. I live 19 miles from Gunnison Beach and like going in the early afternoon till sundown. When I come home take a shower and stay naked until I leave the house.
            • I assume after reading this that I must be a nudist. I sleep nude, I stay nude most of the time at home and can be nude in part of my backyard. I am not comfortable being nude around others, just to self-conscious of my body.
              • If I run 3-4 km around the headland / nature reserve naked every morning, does that make me a nudist? What if its at 3-AM?!
                • Trifft alles auf mich zu. Also bin ich hier richtig. :-)
                  • i am a definitely a true nudist .Thanks for this question.I sleep nude and when i get up in the morning stay nude as long as i can.If i have chores to do outside then i get dressed and when i come in for lunch i strip naked (as i am now, just finished lunch) In the evening i will come in strip, have an outdoor shower ,make dinner in the nude, sometime have dinner outdoors in the nude and remain nude all evening .And love every minute of it .My wife is not as much as me bu tottal tolerant of me being nude
                    • I must be a true nudists because the more naked I am the happier I am, especialy in front of other people. So, I suppose you could say I am a bit of an exhibitionist as well. Being naked gives me a feeling of freedom and to walk around naked in nature is the most liberating sensation I have ever experienced.
