I never grew up thinking much of nudism, it simply was not on my mind. In my mid 20s I discovered how much I appreciated being naked after I took showers, and would start spending more and more time nude at home. I think I was a part-time home nudist for a while, which was amazing.
After some time, I thought I’d like to try social nudism, but I was not sure if I had the nerve. Heck, I’d never even been nude in a locker room. Our school only had us change clothing, so down to knickers was about the most exposure I had with others.
After a couple of years, I finally decided to give it a shot. I had chatted online with plenty of nudists and found another man my age who lived close to me. One day I drove around to his apartment (hands trembling with the first timer nerves) to meet up. Rang the doorbell, and much to my surprise he answered the front door naked and encouraged me in. While I was caught off guard (I believed we had talk somewhat in person before nudity), I still thought it was trendy as well as a very good ice breaker.
So, I considered to myself “when in Rome” and within about 30 seconds of meeting, I’d stripped down in his front hallway! It was only like ripping off a band aid! Of course it was a considerably more freeing and liberating encounter than taking off a band aid. Much to my surprise, I was not embarrassed or self-conscious to be standing there naked in front of a complete stranger. It was exhilarating.
We hung out for a few hours, talked about nudism, watched TV, played cards (not strip poker, of course). It was a fantastic experience and I’m happy I finally gave it a shot after all those years.
That was about 5-6 years ago and I’m still participating in social nudism – whether it’s at a friend’s house or at a nude beach or resort. Glad I eventually gave it that first shot and never looked back!
I always knew I was a nudist
Even at an extremely young age, I enjoyed being naked. I had two other brothers growing up so I found it hard to have any privacy to be bare. My parents had over 6 acres of land and on a hot sunny day I would go off by myself and strip off all my clothing and lay in the sun.
As I got older and moved out on my own, I began to sleep naked; nothing is more relaxing than that to get a good night’s sleep. On the weekends, if I was not going anywhere I ‘d be naked around the home for the entire day and do whatever.
Six years ago I eventually made a decision to go to my first nude beach located at Playalinda Beach. It didn’t take myself really long to be naked like everyone else. For the next four years I kept going back once or twice a year. My only regret is that I didn’t go sooner. This past September I finally ran my first bare 5k race at cypress cove. I enjoyed so much that I have signed up for two races this year.
Now, whenever I can I am always nude in my house or at a nudist resort being free of clothes and worries; there’s nothing like it.
Naturism Takes Flight
Sometimes, I’ll jokingly comment that I owe my thanks and my love for naturism to my employer. You see, I work in the airline travel industry as a flight crew member. Back in the day when airlines offered onboard magazines as an amenity for flying customers, I was nonchalantly thumbing through the pages of one of the publications entitled “Outside.”
It offers its subscribers info and advice about outdoor recreational sports equipment and travel. One of the pages of this specific problem comprised a colorful pictorial advertisement for Lee Baxandall’s, “World Guide To Nude Beaches & Recreation”. The name of Lee Baxandall is going to be recognized by any experienced naturist or nudist alike (of which I was neither at the time). Lee first took up the task of naturism in Wisconsin as an Eagle Scout. After, in 1980, he became the founding member of The Naturist Society. He’s also an inductee into youngest nudist pics of Fame. But I digress. His highest guide to nudism in natural settings peaked my interest. With pen & paper, I jotted down the address of where to order my copy of this worn-out list of locations where a person can vacation, camp, swim and socialize without wearing a single stitch of cloth. A couple of weeks prior to my meeting with Mr. Baxandall’s guide, I ‘d coordinated an approaching week of vacation alone in beautiful Maui, Hawaii. After receiving my copy in the post, I immediately turned to the section of nudist beaches situated in the Aloha State and discovered “Little Beach”. When it was time to board my flight for Maui (this time as a regular dude and not a working crew member), I anxiously expected the second I’d eventually experience an entire week on the sand and by the ocean wearing nothing but my skin as well as a grin. That first expected ‘bare’ second has now come and gone. And my recollection of it brings many descriptive words to head: natural, liberating, freeing, exuberating, sensual yet non-sexual, energizing, rejuvenating and a lot more. And for me, the ‘so-much-more’ contains religious reconnection. I consider my nakedness does not belong to me, but rather to Creation. NUDE is how I was ‘created’ and brought into the world. THAT, within itself, makes it religious in nature for me. It makes it a good thing, healthy and pure; nothing to be ashamed of nor to hide. Rather, I see my nakedness as something to embrace and to be lived. I wish to allow it to breathe my existence. In my view, to refuse my nakedness is to denounce my Creator’s development. I do not want to silence that breath. It is a gift. I need it to prosper. I want it to grow. And in doing so, I express my sincerest form of gratitude to the “Giver” of that gift; oh, and gratitude to my employer for stocking that magazine on the airplane. And for giving me the coveted perk of air travel. It’s the perfect means by which to find and experience more of this lovely planet’s Au-Naturel destinations. Today, I still love flying high Au-Naturel!
Long Time Nudist
When I was still a kid I always felt good when I was naked, so I’d always make sure I needed to walk to the bathroom to take a bath and back to my room bare. as soon as I turned 8 years old I started sleeping naked and would sit around or lay on my bed in my room naked constantly, and when no one was home, I would remain bare in different parts of my house.
as soon as I turned 12 years old I had a pal and streaking was a big craze then, so we would streak every opportunity we got. Sadly my family would not have agreed for me to be a nudist, so I couldn’t tell them, nor be nude in front of those.

Check itas soon as I went into my very own house I was naked all the time. I attempted to get my girlfriends that they’d enjoy being a nudist but most wouldn’t attempt it, as well as the ones that tried it did not like it, but I always continued being naked all of the time since it’s the only means I want to be.
Before I got married my fiancee knew I was a nudist and also would continue to be a nudist after we were married, and after 25 years of marriage she understands I will stay a nudist.
She is not a nudist. As well, my children are not nudist. Lucky for me my family understands being bare is the manner I’m comfortable, and don’t mind that I ‘m constantly nude. I loved being bare, and always will.
I’ve been a nudist for 49 years and no way I’d ever alter.

Breaking Down Barriers
On a recent trip to a Florida beach resort, while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, the incredible craving to be naked in the water was too much to suppress. I found myself out beyond any other swimmers and removed my trunks. I remained there for what seemed like hours enjoying the feel of follow with a liberty like I have never experienced before.
I am a 51 year old man and never would have presumed to do something like that in a private pool let alone the Gulf. The exhilaration I felt left an indelible impression of the freedom and awareness of one with nature that I would like to continue.
Upon returning home I instantly joined AANR and am actively seeking a local resort to visit. It’ll be my first “official” exposure (no pun intended) to a naturist environment and I welcome any suggestions.
Thank you for opening up a new phase in my life.
