For nudists who enjoy wine, visit wineries and like to compare notes on various types and brands.
I am not exactly new to nudism. I remember as a kid going around the woods naked, always being scared of getting caught. I had no idea at the time that made me a nudist.
Today, I tried social nudity for the first time. That was such a freeing experience. It really is true there are no sexual desires involved. I was just so happy to walk around the resort nude and to swim nude with other people who were nude as well. I don't know when I will be able to get back there. I can't wait though. There has been no freeing moments in my life I can remember like today.
Update....I have now been to a nude beach as well. For those who saw my earlier post, I have told my wife about it and she didn't get too upset. I think she may even come with me but don't think she will even consider trying it. It's ok though. I just want her to be with me.
Update yet again....: Well, I have now been to Haulover, Cypress Cove many times, Lake Como and Paradise Lakes. I have also been to "secluded" places in the nude. I guess I am truly a naturist now. My wife is accepting of it and had stated she will go with me. She stated she doesn't know if she will participate or not but I am happy she is willing to consider it and go with me. She understands why I enjoy being a naturist. The other day, I walked the nature trail at Lake Como. It was so naturalistic just being totally in nature, not just my surroundings but my body as well.
I should say, my wife and I are totally normal people and I don't just run around nude anytime anywhere where it is not legal. We are not swingers nor am I interested in being with anyone but my wife for my intimate moments. I am happily married for 20 years and I want to stay that way.
Update 2/9/17. First off, I wish I had dated my previous updates. I joined this site in 2012 and became "bold enough" to become a certified user in 2013. I think it was in this same 2013 year that I first went to Lake Como.
The biggest update is that I am going to change my username as I am not exactly a closet nudist anymore. Yes, I am still very tight lipped about it but to say I tell no persons isn't exactly true anymore. I have a co-worker whom I have discussed this with and found that he and his wife are also practicing naturists and we are planning to get together soon. When I told my wife about this last night, she said oh, ok. Surprising to me as she has not participated in social nudism yet but has been outside nude with me on the boat and in the water. Not that she won't but there just hasn't been the opportunity yet.
So today, I am going to change my profile from an individual to a couple. My wife is into this! It's been a long haul of just being patient and allowing her to progress at her own pace. I have to say that she has been very understanding of me too. I am the luckiest man in the world to have her as my wife!
Oh, I should tell you all about another place I have found where naturism is tolerated that I have been enjoying. There is a "sand Bar" called Passage Key between Egmont Key and Anna Maria Island that is listed on the US Fish and Wildlife as a protected bird sanctuary. The officers have stated they are more interested in protecting the animals than what the people are doing so the naturists have "flocked" (pun intended) to the bird island. We are allowed to walk around the perimeter of the small island but are not to enter the interior of the island. Most people just stay away from all the birds. On a weekday, it is about half and half of naturists and textiles but on the weekends, the majority are naturists. Of the textiles, it is no big deal to them. As long as they don't mind, I don't either. There are plenty of places for them to go and they know Passage Key is also known as "nudie island" so I am sure they kind of expect it.
Well that's enough for now. Off to change my username and account status to couple. :-)
UPDATE again 07/06/2017
My wife and I have now been out to Passage Key several times naked together. She has become very comfortable with it and we are meeting other nudists there. The big news though is my wife and I just got back from spending 3 days together at Cypress Cove. We had a blast there. She is now very comfortable being naked and being around others who are also naked. From the time we checked into our room to the time we had to sit in our car to leave three days later, we were both nude. We met some great people there which may turn into friendships for the rest of our lives. One couple we even talked to about traveling together to Club Orient!
Wow, what an amazing journey this has been with my wonderful wife. I am truly blessed.
Someday I will meet my God...though I hope not soon. I do look forward to meeting him though.
Boats, beaches and motorcycle riding. I enjoy fishing quite a bit. Spending the evening out with my wife has to be my all time favorite thing to do though or just sitting around the fire pit in our beautiful back yard. She enjoys sports so much more than me....I know that is backwards but it's true. We both enjoy so much watching our kids play high school sports.
Not really into movies. I am more of an outdoorsman and active. I do enjoy watching Blue Bloods but thats not a movie. I do remember watching Finding Nemo numerous times with my kids. My Cousin Vinny was a funny movie I have seen many times.
Christian contemporary, Classic rock and country. Jazz when I am cooking a gourmet meal for my wife with a glass of wine. Some metal when I am working out.
Those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for others. This includes Jesus Christ!
