Reality Of Nudism
A frank discussion group about the realities of nudism
Nudity & Sex - am I alone?Return to Discussions
Am I alone is saying that my nudism is not connected to my sexuality and sex per se?
My nudism and love of being nude is based on the following principles:
I love being nude and feeling the vulnerability and freedom that is delivered by being nude in the world.
I strongly appreciate nudity in all forms of art.
I enjoy being seen by other people who are also nude (i.e. being social within the community), and like the freedom to chose who these people are and this doesn't necessarily include my family or friends who are not nudies.
I like being nude in public spaces, that are appropriately allocated to nudism, and sometimes where its not if it doesn't put a legal risk in play.
BUT I don't believe any of these principles provide the entre to sexual expression, activity or discussion...
Am I alone in this ideology of nudism? Love to hear the views of others.
Gary you have nailed it. 100% agree mate. Nudity is a sense of freedom and so good for the mental health. Just shared your comments with my wife. Chris. You got a big tick from Chris. Cheers and a big hug to all the lovely nudist on TN.
Agree 100%. I find it difficult to understand how many people assume that being naked means that you're cruising and available for sex. And, if you're socially naked within an all male or all female group, you must be gay and in a mixed group you must be swingers just itching to have sex.
I can't put into words the joy that being naked gives me but I think it is the same for all nudists/naturists.
I can explain where it comes from.
For textiles, there are two and only two reasons for being nude:
When a textile sees a naked person (or imagines a naked person, or group of naked people) on a beach or at a resort and correctly discerns that the person or people are not bathing, then, in the textiles mind, there is only one possibility remaining: sex.
Since nudity, in general, is not about taking a bath or a shower, then the only other possibility that does exist and that can exist is that nudity is about sex.
Nudity is about sex. There are no other possibilities.
I am a nudist and am quite comfortable at being naked around others...I don't feel being nude is about sex, but there are a lot of swingers in this group...I over here conversations in the pool all the time lol, but that's not why I enjoy being naked..I enjoy the feeling of being free and being accepted, if not by others then at least by me, plus there's bo greater feeling than feeling the situation. In your backside lol
Yes, you are right. Nudism and especially social nudism has nothing to do with sex. In all of my experiences, I have never been able to explain nudism's joys and feelings of well being to a textile, so I don't try. If a textile ever expresses a desire to try social nudism, I am always ready to try to help them to give it a try. I know that once they've tried it, they'll be hooked for life.
In talking to textiles about this, I've found that it's easier to convince them that you are a swinger rather than a nudist. Textiles are more accepting of the fact that a person may be a swinger, which they consider somewhat normal, rather than a nudest, which they consider to be a weird, un-natural perversion.
It's difficult to change a person's opinion on nudism since these views have been drilled into them since early childhood. DesertRat.
You are not alone. Nudism is, I speak for myself here, communication/language. I personally want to communicate to everyone that this is me. I feel liberated, free, HAPPY, not forced to settle for anything, not judged or judge anyone and thrilled to be vulnerable but actually not vulnerable at all. I feel stronger and empowered when I'm wearing nothing. Clothing, to me, covers my armor which protects me better than anything on Earth. Nothing sexual about it for me at all. When I did it for the first time I asked someone at a resort for advice. He said, "Everyone here is naked. 2nd, nobody gives a F___. Enjoy the company"
