It's the "gateway" apparel. You start going commando, and the next thing, you are mainlining nudity. grin
Underwear does come up some times as a topic of conversation at a party, or with close friends. Here in Hawaii, about half of the guys I know do not wear underwear, as the heat and humidity make for some really bad sweat rashes between the cheeks. Ditching the undies, cures that pretty fast. Of course with the warm climate here, most of the guys are into home nudity as well, or gardening naked, or going to the clothing optional beaches.
I'm always able to joke and tell them how rarely I need to do laundry. So that is a key benefit in time and money.

The conversations at work lately have been funny. Last week the two ladies I share the office with were talking, discussing the BBQ that one had had at the weekend. To cut a long story short, it came out that she didn't wear knickers when she wore trousers. The other lady was gob smacked and didn't believe it. So I piped up with "what's the problem, I've been commando for a few years"
"Ewe, that's not right"
The conversation continued, and I did email another female colleague to include her and get her to pretend and wind her up even more. Later in the conversation we were getting things like "but jeans are course, don't they chaff" and "I'm now closer to Gary's bits cos there are fewer layers". My response was "you were perfectly happy at 9am and nothing has changed"
Anyway as the week has gone on, this conversation has obviously continued with other girls in the department and when I was back in that office yesterday, I found that we're now at the position where some of the girls, includeing the 'Ewe' one now agree that it's okay
"but not at work, it's not businesslike"
They also know that we enjoy the sun in the garden, and that Mar goes topless. The one who goes commando has also admitted that she's relaxed about clothes at home too. I'm just sitting back and enjoying listening. Lets see how it goes.
(The reason I quoted Steve is that heat, and heat rashes is why she started going commando to start with)
I only wear undies for special occasions. I was shocked a couple of years ago when I was having a skin cancer examination, at my local clinic, and believing that every bit of skin would be examined, I simply undressed, but was not prepared for the gasps by the staff in the room. they made me cover up, and examined all of me but the genitals and crotch. I let them know I believed it was a medical facility, so I should be able to walk in naked, as the Dr's would be able to see any ailment as I walked in. My new female Dr in the same clinic knows I am a nudist, and is quite happy to see me nude for the entire session. She is very comfortable with me, and I feel the same, we talk about the benefits, or not, of nudity, I even discuss masturbation and prostate health with her. She is young and very knowledgeable.
I take every opportunity to tell people I don't wear underwear. it might be a conversation on the laundry - they mention undies and I say What undies. Sometimes (like this evening) it has opened a discussion into my nudity.
My all close friends and cousin brothers know that i don't wear underwear and I am a nudist and they don't have any objection about my freeballing and my nudity.
Yaa but unknown person get surprise after knowing that I am freeballing.
When I tell any friends I have over that I don't wear underwear at home anymore, it's their warning that I'm going to be completely balls and butt naked commando when I greet them at the door. When I used to wear only briefs at home and had a friend over he kept teasing me about it in good jest. The next time he came over I was completely naked, and he was surprisingly stoic and respectful. Frankly I was expecting a lot of dick and butt jokes/puns...
I don't tell people that I am a nudist, but do drop some pretty big hints about being "clothing relaxed"
What I have found is that some people can appear to be acceptable and okay about it but then out of earshot be dead against it.
These days I spoon feed such info very slowly and wait for any rebuttal, sometimes days or weeks later. Usually, by hearing that someone has passed comment to Mar
I've been surprised at how often underwear comes up in conversations with friends, both male and female. And why not? There's the perennial boxers vs briefs conversation, but I find the commando option pops up more often, especially when guys are at home or working out.
I don't miss an opportunity either to tell. The responses are always interesting even if negative it tells me something about the person. Normally it is positive reaction or don't care reaction. I haven't run into any other full time freeballers though.
