Challenges and rewards of being nude at home

Return to Discussions

Anyone like to expand on the subject? The chat area sems to major on "how are you and the weather and Good Morning and good afternoon. Very little chat about the why's and the wrerefore's of being nude at home. My rewards are the weight off my shoulders, the sense of freedom, the coming alive of all the senses, almost arousal and exhiliaration. Nothing new there then. Also the anticipation and fear that someone utterly "clothed conscious" and well known to the family might just appear at your door unanounced!!!! Food for thought only.

RE:Challenges and rewards of being nude at home

The number reason I love nudism and being nude, is the Sense of freedom that it gives. The only way anyone can understand that statement is to try being nude. It takes all the weight of society and it's taboos and sensitivities off of you which is liberating indeed.

Challenges. The main challenge of being nude is the Law. It is illegal to be nude in public in my state. A couple decades ago, I found out from a police officer at my door, that public nudity includes being nude in your house, if anyone can see you. So I have to make sure all curtains are closed shut and blinds are drawn. Which of course means no nudity in my backyard even though I have a privacy fence, because again, if someone climbs a tree and sees me, then I am breaking the law.

As a boy I ran around the neighborhood naked. I skinny dipped in creeks and ponds and lakes. No one said a thing. Boys being nude was a normal sight back then. But not now. I can't go to the creek and strip off and swim, because if someone comes by and sees me, I get arrested.

So that is the challenge for being nude now, vs decades ago.

As far as people coming to the door. I keep shorts by the door, so I can slip them on, before answering the door. That isn't an issue or challenge.

RE:Challenges and rewards of being nude at home

The rewards are obvious. The comfort and relaxation of being naked is why I do it. I have to be trussed up in shirt, tie, suit, shoes etc all day, and just can't wait to get rid.

At home, in the summer we of course have the heavenly experience of being out feeling the sunshine and the breeze on your skin, and being able to relax fully. I have a waterfall for my fish pond, so listening to that and watching the fish while naked in the sunshine takes some beating.

Thankfully, in the UK, being naked in your own home is not illegal. In fact it is legal to be naked in public provided you don't do anything to upset anyone. This means that I can legally be naked in my lounge.

Unfortunately, society isn't so forgiving, so even though it's legal, and I am naked in my lounge, I have to be constantly aware of the window, and I don't flaunt myself. Likewise, although we are able to be naked in our back garden, we are very careful to try to avoid being seen by our conservative neighbours - which is only fair. If everyone respected everyone else's feelings the world would be a nicer place.

My biggest challenge is spending 2 weeks not naked, 3 times a year when my in-laws come to stay

Excelent thoughts in your reply. Thank you. Your problem will be solved by moving to Scotland where being naked in public is lawful providing you are not causing distress to others. Moving of coutse would be taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut but hayho, the price has to be paid! For interest only I started a blog In "naked at Home" which u might enjoy reading. I left an open question asking what I should do next and would be interested to have your thoughts. The circumstances are all true and actually did happen!!

Loved getting your reply which mimics my thoughts. I have the advantage though because I have an enclosed garden. Weather permitting I can be textile free for most of the summer, both indoors and out. I do nave to lidten for the postman in case he has a parcel!!! Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Our back garden in private apart from one small area in the middle, and we're working on that.

The problem is that we have a south facing house, and our front garden is where the sun is most. No chance of being naked there as it's wide open and right beside a main road. Double decker buses mean we couldn't really have privacy fences high enough.

At least in the back garden we can move around to stay in the sun as much as possible, and we have the fish pond and waterfall to enjoy too

RE:Challenges and rewards of being nude at home

Wellllll, I think we all know the rewards of being nude at home. You are nude at home...LOL! You can do whatever naked in the privacy of your abode. I have a home office, so the majority of my time is spent nude working at my desk or out on the back patio with the laptop and cell phone. Another positive of nudist living is we rarely use a furnace or air conditioner. Our naked bodies adjust automatically to temperature changes. Just a pair of socks can keep us warm. In hot summer weather we can sleep fully exposed with a fan blowing on us or be cozy and warm under layers of covers.

The challenge like others is unexpected guests at the door. In warm weather we leave the front door ajar, but also have a heavy security screen door where people can't readily see inside. I do keep my fluffy, white robe handy to answer if I choose. Plus, the robe comes in handy for chilly mornings and cooler weather. Also outside the challenge an be a sexual one since hubby and I like to get frisky in back as well. He did, however, install a lattice with vines to extend the top of our fence to keep out prying voyeur eyes. I imagine they've caught a few peeks anyway.

RE:Challenges and rewards of being nude at home

After over 44 years of living nude and feeling that, that is our normal way of life, that is the reward for us. Living free, comfortable and as it should be. Now that we are both retired, we crave staying home, being home or returning home so we can be nude or return to being nude. My wife worked at home, mostly grading papers and she always said that she needed to get naked in order to get through the stacks of papers to grade. I think that's why she usually brought them home with her and didn't do them in her office at work.

Challenges are like others have stated; unexpected or unannounced guests but that doesn't happen very often. Because we are busy and sometimes not home, family for sure and usually friends will always call or text before coming over. Neighbors don't seem to visit or pop over for a chat. Our one neighbor across the street will usually text us first or I text her first to ask if it's a good time to drop something off or talk for a minute. Sometimes, she'll say ... "give me about 10 mins," I often wonder if she's running around naked and doing things and wants time to finish and then get dressed! LOL I think it's just wishful thinking that we have nudist neighbors/friends. :DD

We've spent $1000's of dollars to make our backyard private enough for naked outside living and loving. It's not a privacy issue but more a sound issue. We live in a pretty quiet neighborhood and sounds travel! :DDD

One of the benefits of living where we are is that friends and family never bob over without calling first.

It would be wonderful to have nudist neighbours as we would be able to just relax and not worry about being seen. Unfortunately for us, I doubt that our neighbours even get naked to bath :D

Yes, it would be wonderful to have more nudist neighbors, wouldn't it?

And we understand about the sound issue. Often there are things you do in the back yard that should remain private both visually and audibly ... LOL!

RE:Challenges and rewards of being nude at home

The problem for many is that they don't let people know that they are nudists, so potentially we could have nudist neighbours without knowing. For example I do not tell anyone at work, or most of our friends for fear of reprisals. For example, at work today it's Christmas jumper day in aid of "Cash For Kids", but we still have to wear a shirt and tie under our jumpers, even though they cannot be seen.

We know our neighbours aren't, but we have dropped hints with some of our friends to see what reaction we get. My in-laws are dead against, and our closest friends don't seem to have picked up the hints, so we've stopped dropping them.

Our neighbours do know, because we know they've seen us. Thankfully they haven't said anything negative, but they also haven't said anything positive. For the moment, everyone is pretending it didn't happen.

Next year I'm going to look at audible privacy, not because we don't want to be heard, but because we don't want to hear the neighbours who moved in behind us. They have dogs and kids, which they have a right to, but both the dogs and the kids are noisy and spoil our tranquil scene.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
