Hello! I have been a naturist for 14 years. My wife knows about it and is open to it. She even participates with me at home. I have been socially nude in the past with a good friend and his wife and my girlfriend at the time. Ive explained to my wife it is not sexual, it is just a comfort thing. She is open to going to a beach or resort and making friends nude. However, she does not want me naked at home when close friends (who know about my lifestyle) come over. Her reasoning is she does not want any friends seeing me nude. She is okay with strangers and making nude friends. But she is not okay with being socially nude with friends who are interested. Has anyone got any tips? Similar experiences?
Also, she doesnt mind being briefly naked in front of her family or friends.
My experience in that specific area is rather limited though. But my advice would be pursue social nudism at the resort and at home until it becomes second nature for her to be nude around other people. Once she "gets there", it might become less problematic in her mind for the husband to be nude around their friends.
Yeah, if she's comfortable in some situations then share those types of situations with her. She may come around for the others, or not, but you're way ahead of many of us here. Enjoy what you have and if other opportunities become open in the future, then that's a bonus.
