Has the pandemic directed you in nude ways?

Has the pandemic directed you in nude ways?

Covid-19 has swept across the globe like a deadly assassin seeking out our elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Like many, I’ve read about pandemics such as the Spanish Flu, but this will be one for the books. I’ll be sure to share with my grandkids how Sheltering-in-Place was an odd time of not knowing what day it was; how pj’s were a staple outfit; how I binge watched shows and consumed my weight in wine.

I’ll recount how within a week of lock down people were getting the hang of video conference calls and making do. I’ll share how funny headlines popped up like “Walmart Reports Increased Top Sales but not Bottoms” - apparently the Donald Duckin’ it look was trending. And then there were the hilarious screenshots shared of “Bob” naked in a Zoom video conference call and getting busted by his co-workers. There’s even the Good Morning America reporter who went on air with no pants and it was visible to amused viewers. Zoom became the new norm for social happy hours with loved ones. Truenudists.com even got a mention in a Forbes article stating nude Zoom parties are a fun and safe social way people are connecting.

Becoming comfortable at home and more unproductive by the day, I wondered if this was a great chance for people to practice nudism at home. Can’t think of a better time for a “Screw the pj’s, who wants to do laundry anyway” type of attitude. As time has passed we’ve seen a spike of new users as well. Those who have enjoyed being nude at home and are sincerely curious about the lifestyle.

In the US, as many states are slowly opening up non-essential businesses, I wonder if Clothing Optional resorts will see an increase in nude guests. I’m curious to see how many of you will take the physical leap into naturism once we have some semblance of normality. Covid-19 has brought some clarity and focus as to what bucket list experiences some want to have once this has passed.

What will you do with your newfound respect for nudism while social distancing? Many will likely flock to those they've missed during this time. Some will emerge from their home craving a sense of adventure. What about you? Will you take advantage of the outdoors with a nude hike or visit a hot spring? Maybe venture out to the nearest nude resort to get a tan and play some water volleyball? Or even baby steps and tiptoe into a backyard pool for a refreshing skinny dip. You might even think eh, I’m good with being nude at home for now. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter which you choose as long as you’re comfortable in your birthday suit, you’ve gained some body positivity and you enjoy your naturist experience. There’s so much to explore in this beautiful world and the possibilities are limitless.

Cheers and stay safe!

  • It's hard being at home with a non-nudist family during lockdown.
    • Covid boredom probably led me to follow up on being life-long nudism-curious. Loving the beach and freedom! (Until it gets too cold!)
      • I did my first nude zoom meeting on Saturday. It was a cocktail and games party and it was very fun. It's nice that people are making adjustments for the covid situation.
        • I agree. My wife is a retired RN and my son is an RN. I have medical issues myself. I spend my time naked at home. I have to stop to remember how I'm NOT dressed when I take the dog out, take trash out or get the mail. Our church meets on Zoom. Many are frankly afraid to meet together with or without textile.
          • Still doing physical therapy after brain surgery so I am careful where I go and what I do. Limiting the out of house time as much as possible. It allows me time , as long as the sun is shining in San Diego, to get my overall tan and vitamin "D" in my patio. The "local"nudist facilities have been closed so I will have to wait. I am looking into building apartments for nudists if the market is there. I know that there are some in Florida but no where else. Any ideas o thoughts are welcome.
            • 66 yrs old made me retire thanks 2 trump can finnaly live as a nudist 100% of the time (no Matter the weather it is more fun naked) building a cottage at rock haven , Anyone go there?
              • My sex life has changed dramatically! I have not had the opportunities to go out into the countryside and beaches to meet up with my friends and other guys. I have not walked naked but once and all my ambitions for the daring things I wanted to do have been unfulfilled. I was going to have a series of nude photograph sessions but not now and visits to gay saunas have been impossible. A bad bad year
                • It has not really effected my daily life too much. I still go for breakfast with friends, have poker nights. Everyone wears a mask and is checked at the door before entering pretty much everywhere except bars. None of my close friends have contacted C-19, and I get a lot of request to use my pool rather than go to the beach, which is fine by me. No one I know is a nudist nor is there anyplace to go, that sucks. Although I am thinking about going to the B&B listed on this site near Guadalajara.
                  • You know, I honestly wonder if detergent for washing clothes has gone upordown during the pandemic?
                    • Been very fortunate that my job stayed intact. Very grateful. Doing it remotely now. TONS more nude time! I do miss going to the beach, even though it has reopened. Just choosing to be cautious. But am not without social outlets. I've posted pics here and had others take pics at nude events, but I've never been one to go on camera. I stepped up to camming here on TN in the chat room a little over a week ago. (Though, I just got banned for the first time. Not sure why.) And I do nude yoga on Zoom. Been fun!
