Being Nudist Means Being Exposed
ESPECIALLY THE FIRST TIME, GETTING NAKED IN PUBLIC IS ALWAYS A BIT NERVE RACKING, BUT IN A GOOD WAY
Why aren't you (if you're not already) a nudist? What is holding you back from actively seeking out a nudist beach or friend near you? Or booking a trip? (As enjoyable as this nudist photography and video is, it's no where near as good as being there.)
The typical response is people feel they're either not fit enough (so, get fit) or it's just too risqué for them. It's in fact not at all risqué unless you go out of your way (say, to Hedonism II or III) and choose to have that experience. At most nudist resorts and on most nude beaches, most if not all of the people are just plain folks. What attracts them aside from the view? It's just fun to do. Why fuss about the other reasons?
Getting up the nerve to drop your drawers isn't that tough when everyone around you, from toddlers to geriatrics, is already nude and seemingly enjoying themselves. There's not much to it. Chances are you'll have a moment or two of tumescence (male or female--look that one up) but you're probably the only one that will mind. See Newbie Nudists
Arriving On A Nude Beach
Though the feeling never really wears off, arriving on a nude beach for the time and deciding to join in is one of most "absolutely in the moment" Buddhist-like moments you'll ever experience. When you start stripping time seems to stop, and of course you feel the whole world is wathcing. Speaking of which, watching nudist arrivals and
departures (getting dressed again) is actually one of my favorite things to do on a nude beach (not leer, mind you, but "notice"). In the rest of your life, how often are you watching women and teens disrobe or get dressed? If you are a regular nude beach attendee, make that number in the thousands.
And it's not just a treat for men. I've noticed women taking keen attention in men and boys disrobing or dressing on arrival at a nude beach.
Yes, you might worry about the condition of your under garments. A little planning there helps alleviate this concern. I just mention it because I'm sure you've wondered about it. See Also: Beyond Nudism - Sunbathing in Underwear
Youthful Forays Into Nudism
If you're human you probably experiment with nudism before you knew what the term meant. Pitching one's suit, whether male or female, feels like a bold undertaking, even if you're alone in a secluded stream or lake. For the young it's a rite of passage. Experimental Nudism
Going "Nudist" In Nature
You may have felt this impulse on a hike. You're surrounded by wonders of nature and feel an urge to strip down and have a little Garden of Eden time. Running around naked in the woods is just fun, and a little risky. Sometimes getting caught is half the fun. See Also: Rogue Nudism
Nudist Encounters: "Hey, Don't You Work In Accounting?" Running Into People You Know
If you log time on a nudist beach near where you live and work, you're bound to run into to someone you know. Yeah, it's a little weird. But most nudists have in the back of their mind that encounters with people they know from the "outside" world may occur, and some even fantasize about it.
What usually results from such a meeting is 1) everyone you know will hear about it and 2), if it was a pleasant encounter, you'll feel a special bond with the person afterward, even if it was your boss or a subordinate. Nudist Encounters
