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!

  • 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!
      • Yes, it affected me in a way that i do even less give a f-ck what other people think. Lots of friendships changed, lots of business partners crystalized out. Other than that, not really, beaches are less full...!
        • Yes in Austin Texas the politics has kept closed only a portion of the parks - including the only nude park in Texas - Hippie Hollow. Maybe it will open on November 4th - same date the pandemic ends.
          • I had covid19 back in march and recovered late April, spent time in hospital. Anyone can catch it, it is not nice ,others who had it milder than myself now have much worse side effects months later. Thanks to the brilliant NHS who brought me back to full health, I fear for those in countries and have to pay for medical care that they will not seek help in the early stages.
            • Travelites Nudist Retreat never had to close. If someone visits us who has never done so before. We do run a thermometer across their forehead. We have lots of room in the pool and on land to socially distance
              • Due to Covid-19, our last swim at Hardisty Pool in Edmonton was Feb 28. Activities at my Resort have been curtailed as well with pool and hot tub closures ! The indoor nude swims keeps me SANE in the Winter ! Hope they open soon !
                • I've been working for the same company for over 40 years (I have a clock documenting that), and I've steadfastly avoided telework--working from home. Now, I have to (I've been in my actual place of work exactly once, for about an hour, since March). Since I have to do the telework, I've been making a point of doing every bit of it naked. One exception, if you can call it that; the first time we had a meeting, I put a shirt on--only a shirt--in case I was going to be seen. When I realized I wasn't going
                  • not much as changed, I have always slept naked, same with through the day, I still stay naked most f the day, doing the house work, relaxing
                    • I have worked remotely from a home office for years, so not much changed for me. During the sheltering phase my local grocery store, home improvement store, and pharmacy all remained open. And, some of my favorite restaurants starting offering no contact delivery. So, only physical social contact was limited. My wife and I have sponsored a few Zoom meetings to stay in touch with friends.
