Whats was Your Nudist Beginning?????
My first "nudist" experience happen at a pretty young age. I was raised in a mountain community and was always looking for places where I could get off bymself for a while to get naked, for instance,in a secluded area by a stream . But I was always a loner (still am, sort of) so never had any experiences of being naked in the company of other naked people except for one friend.. First time I heard the term "nudist" I was intrigued and thought how wonderful it would be to be someplace where clothes weren't necessary. It was much later in my life when I decided to explore the nudist lifestyle before becoming an active fun loving nudist.
At a young age cousins and friends and I would skinny dip in the creek or ponds and run through the woods naked pretending to be Indians. Always loved that free feeling of being without clothes and the non judgment of those around me. Today it's not quite that way but still enjoy what I have
I was simply a country kid in a country that can get quite hot. If the opportunity presented itself to have a swim and cool off, then off came the kit and I did it. Sometimes mates did the same thing with me, and there was the usual whos biggest and who is getting hair and where. I find it all was sort of normal for back then and less people seemed to have had body issues when we all swam and showered together nude. Just my opinion, but I honestly couldnt tell you the first time I went nude as I think Ive always done it.
I was 4, and my Dad developed an interest in nudism. So he took us to a nude beach. He went nude; but my Mom did not. Which confused me and made me self-conscious; being a very shy kid. So I did not take off my swimsuit. But I remember being awe-stricken by the nude families there; and all the kids playing. I thought it was beautiful. My Mom encouraged me to get naked and join them...but I was just too shy. That day never left my mind; and I swore to myself that one day I would get naked next time.
That "next time" wouldn't happen for 20 years...but it did happen.
After becoming a nudist I brought up that day with my Mom. She was very candid about it. When we got to the nude beach that day, she got cold-feet about me seeing her naked. She chickened out. But she added - much to my surprise - that she had regretted it later. She knew I was confused about the nudity; and that it would have been a lot less confusing had she gotten naked too. But her hang-ups were just too strong. It was a very enlightening conversation; as I realized my Mom actually appreciated the idea of family nudity, but was simply unable to follow through with it.
We lived in TX for a short time... 3 years. I was 8 when we moved there. At 10, we moved to a more remote area with lots of fields, abandoned buildings and a creek near our neighborhood. I became friends with a group of kids, some a little older than me. One friend had an older brother with a girlfriend. We'd go explore these old buildings and take our clothes off and roam through these buildings and then head off to the creek.
The older boy and girl would stay behind. Later we found out why, because we walked in on them having sex. Seemed like us younger kids were enjoying being nude while exploring and going to the creek, we didn't give these two much thought after the initial shock of seeing them having sex. . We did the naked exploring and swimming in the creek that an entire summer and during the warmer months that followed. At 11, I began experimenting sleeping nude. I'd slide the whitey tighties off at night under the sheet, but at that time I was still wearing a t shirt to bed, I think.
We moved back to CA before my 12 birthday and I began sleep naked almost every night. By 14, I had my own room and was sleeping naked all the time. All through HS and even in boot camp and onboard ship, I slept naked. My wife and I married at 20 and she never hesitated about sleeping naked or adopting a nudist lifestyle. We've been nudists for over 48 years.
Mine was when I was about 17.
I used to spend a lot of the summer holidays cycling and would sometimes go though the wooded grounds of the local college.
They had an outdoor swimming pool that always looked tempting after a long ride in the sun, but it had a high wire fence that was also angled outwards at the top to prevent people from climbing over.
One time, as I was cycling past, I noticed that the fence had been broken at the bottom between the posts.
After cycling around a bit to make sure that nobody else was around (it was a Sunday), I took a look so see if it was possible to get through the gap, and it was.
I stripped off, got in, and it felt wonderful, so free and natural and invigorating.
That's when I first discovered that I loved being naked in water, hence my TN name.
Needless to say, I continued to do this quite a lot through the rest of the summer, even going there purposely at night to skinny-dip when the nights were warm.
I left home and moved away the following year, so didn't have any further opportunities for a few years.
Then, I was lucky enough to live near a beach used by naturists, so I started going, and my love of naturism was re-ignited, and has continued ever since.
Mine came very late in my life. It was 2018 when I first experienced my first nudity. I went to Japan and I wanted to experience their spa called Onsen. But the problem iseveryone is naked and I had fear of my body reacting if I see people naked. So I went and my fear didnt happen at all. I enjoyed the feeling of being naked with a group of people. I travelled to Japan for 3 consecutive a years after and made sure that I visited the Onsen at least 5 times on all my trips. Never looked back after that and started exploring the local nude beaches and also tried one nudist resort.
I'm another country kid. Running naked in the woods was always fun. Had a pool in our yard and a lake nearby. Skinny dipping usually solo, but sometimes with friends was frequent for me. Once I got my driver's license I headed out to a nude beach I had heard of. Didn't get there often as it wasn't near our home. Had to wait for vacation and a gap in family plans. My wife knows I'm a nudist, but I have had little success in getting her to join in. The kids are grown and out of the house providing me with more time to get out and be nude. Now I will drive that extra distance to get out to my favorite. beach.
When I was young, I would try to be naked every chance I was given.
My first actual nudist experience came after I met the woman who would become my second wife. I always loved to be nude at home and decided to be completely open from the start. I told her i was a nudist. She found it interesting. After dating for a while, we were both accustomed to being naked at home whenever we could.
We eventually met other couples (Boaters like us) who loved to be nude. That was it for us. We were naked with other couples on boats every summer weekend and got together in the winter at each others houses to party naked. She is gone now, but my GF is into being naked and I started dating her because she was nudist.
My first nude experience was as a young boy taking swimming lessons at the local YMCA which was in the nude due to the swim suit material of that time (1950s) clogging up the then pool filtration mechanism. My father came to the father/son swim which was also Nude fir all but the lifeguard. My father had no problem being nude which occurred often in our home. I have been a nudist ever since.
