Embarrassed?

Were you embarrassed when you first started going nude? Are you still embarrassed under certain circumstances, like if certain people see you?

For me it was too difficult to start nudism because I always felt embarrassed. Nowadays Im more open to nudism but in public places I find difficult specially with evident stares.

I don't get embarrassed as such by being seen naked, either by other naked people or clothed. I do worry about the reaction of other people seeing me naked and any problems that will cause me or my wife.
So I tend to be very careful when naked in our garden if I know the neighbours are around. Not because I would be embarrassed about being seen but I am pretty certain what their reaction but be. And as we get along in all other aspects I dont want to jeopardise that.
But that isnt embarrassment. Have chatted to plenty of clothed and naked people on beaches etc. Have had delivery drivers catch me naked in my back garden and just stood up and dealt with the delivery with no embarrassment.

No, never.

Can you explain what certain people means to you?

I was never really embarrassed, but I was very nervous the first time. I would also get nervous going to a new place for the first couple of years.

If by "certain people" you mean people who know you in the textile world but would be surprised to see you naked, then no. When I was introduced to nudism in Germany, it was in the company of a couple of friends who took me to an event where I was the only American there. I didn't know anybody else.

All of my other experience has been with friends, except for some nude beaches and such where I was far from my home "stomping grounds" and didn't know anybody.

I haven't met anybody here in the area, so that experience may still be in store for me. I doubt if it would faze me, though.

Yeah, I was a little embarrassed at first. I had a guitar and spent a lot of time playing it (badly) partly to cover up my groin area and partly because it was the only thing I could do. But after an hour or so, I put the guitar down and took a swim and played some badminton with the people there, and all was cool.As for the second part of the question, if I meet somebody in a nudist envrionment that I knew but that I didn't expect to see there, I wouldn't care a bit. I'm naked, they're naked. I think a lot of people sort of suspect me as a closet nudist, anyway, because I'm wearing less than they are. If it's hot and humid, I see no sense in wearing anything more than a pair of shorts and sandals, or whatever I can get away with, in textile environments.
Same here. I keep wearing shirts to an absolute minimum in warm winter. Surprising how many men on this board wear shirts whenever they aren't nude.
Concerning people suspecting, mose than once one of my acquaintances have seen me shirtless and commented along the lines that they think I would go nude if I could.

Nope... can't say that I've been embarrassed. Nervous the first time in the Jr. HS locker room and shower but not embarrassed.

I don't know if it was embarrassment or awkwardness. I met a couple for the first time at a clothed party. The next day I was at a nude beach and saw the couple walking by the water's edge. I was tempted to pretend I didn't see them but then our eyes caught each other and I had to acknowledge them. It was awkward for for to casually discuss weather etc while completely naked.
