RE:My nudist experience without wife

My nudist experience without my wife is a little different. I was always inclined to the nudist lifestyle. When my first wife left me it opened the door for me to venture out into the socially nude world. While I was attending the resort nearby I learned of the rule that while single men could visit the resort, married men could not visit solo. This created a dilemma for me when I met my current wife. I made sure she was aware of my nudist lifestyle. She let me know that while she was fine with my nudity, she did not want to participate. Then what to do about continuing to visit my resort? I continued to attend as a single male and told no one about my spouse. This worked well until my nude time was starting to encroach on my time with my wife. She decided that since she knew my nudist lifestyle was important she would come with me. As some posted above she married into nudism and would not be a nudist otherwise.

It has always been a different type of experience for me early on when I visited a club without Luann. She show up and folks were more relaxed and welcoming. Even in our own home club where we are very established and involved members there I'm worn out out of the same question if I am there alone there working on a project ...Where is Luann? It is what it is and I don't foresee any changes in the States culture for single nudist males.

I the husband in this relationship very much agrees with this response. Trust and honesty in our 49 yrs. We do things together.

My wife knows of my nude activities, I invite her to join me but alas she has no interest. Kind of a half loaf thing.

Oh yes! I sleep naked, I take nude excursions once in awhile, e.g. the Big Nude Boat, but my spouse is not fond of me parading nude daily in our home. I do use every opportunity to get totally naked, e.g. waiting for dark to go nude on our deck so the nosy neighbors cant learn of my nakedness.

I agree,
Have to be honest.
Now we both rarely wear clothes at home and now both go to nude events together.
She enjoys it just as mush as me now.

RE:My nudist experience without wife

I was a long time nudist before I married my wife, she tolerates my nudity in the backyard but I do not share my naked adventures away from home since my wife is opposed to the nudist lifestyle and finds it disgusting and would never join me. My first opportunity was when I was on vacation and I went to a clothing optional hot spring, I loved the experience and searched for more places to get naked. I just tell my wife that Im going hiking when going out on a naked outing. I have hiked with a naked hiking group, gone to pool gathering, nudist resorts and Korean Spas.

Fact.

The first time I went to a nudist club I went without my wife. Whereas the other attendees were certainly not rude, I was mostly ignored. As a matter of fact if it hadn't been for the hostess, I probably would have been left alone all day.

The second time I went my wife agreed to accompany me; but she wasn't ready to be socially nude yet so she kept her sarong on. The other attendees were more cordial; although not overwhelmingly so.

We went back a third time; at which point my wife decided to toss her sarong. The response to my wife getting naked was almost mind-blowing. Everyone talked to us; some even invited us to hang out outside the club or meet up at a resort. We literally did not have a moment to ourselves. One the one hand I thought it was great we were having a social nudism "breakthrough"; on the other hand I thought: "So...my wife not only has to be with me but she also has to be naked for me/us to be included!?" That left me with a sour taste in my mouth.

That's an unfortunate reality in social nudism. Nudist wives are perceived more positively; especially if they express confidence with it. It is what it is.

RE:My nudist experience without wife

Ive been lucky enough to have a somewhat different experience. The first probably eight times I visited Laguna Del Sol I was alone. I was somewhat ignored but Ive always been one that is able to strike up conversations with strangers which did help, plus I always wear my wedding ring and if I didnt it would still sort of be there as a tan line. When alone Ive always been straight forward that its not really my wifes thing but she will accompany meat times. So in the beginning, it was a bit lonesome but not entirely as I did get to know some of the regulars. But I also started going to the volleyball pool and participating getting to know a number of people, some of them by themselves like me. Then my wife started joining me once in a while and it did make somewhat of a difference once people met her with more people being accepting. When I do go alone now, people inquire how my wife is doing or if shes come along that day.

That's encouraging, FullSun. At least it's not always doom and gloom.
