Gunnison Beach – 6 A.M.I grew up in a house where nudity was no big deal.

We sometimes would swim nude in our fairly private backyard, and nudity in the house was, although not supported, definitely not frowned on either.

As an adult there was never much opportunity to revisit those carefree moments of youth. I traveled a good bit with my work and learned of the approved nude beach at Sandy Hook, NJ.

Eventually I was in that place immediately and took the chance to go to the beach before beginning my work day. I got to the beach sometime around 6 a.m. and the beach was abandoned and chilly. I sat in my clothes on the sand and watched the sun come up. About 7:30 it got warm enough to take my clothing away and appreciate the sun, the sound of the surf and the wind. By then several early risers had come to the shore, but it was still largely abandoned. I just had an hour or so on the beach before I had to start my day.

I loved the sense of being nude in nature so much that I went back to the shore after my appointments were completed and appreciated the rest of the day on the considerably more busy shore, watching the sun go down before I left. At no time did I feel uncomfortable being bare in the company of other nude people. Perhaps becoming a bit used to it in the morning before the crowds came helped a bit, but I consider that if you approach nudism from the correct perspective it isn’t a sexually charged encounter and so there is really nothing to be uncomfortable about. When you have not tried it yet, I’d encourage you to give it a try. Its absolutely amazing.

I have since been back to the shore many times and joined a nonlanded club where we’ve been able to relish day trips to landed clubs in the area. It’s all amazing but my favourite place is still the beach with its surf and sand!

Waited Too Long

My whole adult life thus far has been subjected to rules designed to stop embarrassment to the “business.” I have needed to play by everyone else’s rules. Well for the first time I decided to take my first step of “liberty” and took a visit to Haulover Beach. WOW! What a awareness relief! To be there, with all those amazing people who had no care what others thought of them…and there I was with them. How wonderful it was to feel the sun on my whole body. Swimming in the ocean with no confinement of a swimsuit. So enjoyable. I can not wait for my next visit. Sadly, here in Miami there aren’t any clothes optional communities, so I’m planning a vacation to one in Central Florida. I can’t wait. I am so thrilled with my new found life.

First time at nudist camp!

I was told about nude camp. Was interested! Did not go the very first year but the next I did go. What a freeing experience! I joined AANR the very next week and this year became an Associate member! I appreciate it so much that I do proudly say I am a nudist!

The chance of seeing a nudist club fell into my lap unexpectedly. In those days I was dating my wife Claudia, but we’d not taken a step forward. We were merely building up the friendship in those days. Then out of a blue I was having tea at her place, when her mother entered. Soon we got acquainted, then her mom mother asked me if I want to join her and Claudia over the weekend at a nude resort. I found myself saying YES.All she advised me was to feel friendly with everyone.

The next Saturday morning we were on our way. When we reached there, all I can say it was a nude woods, but very well maintained.

Shortly they both got there, clothing off as if it was normal routine. I also had to take off. I was shy a bit, but to my amazement no one troubled to look at me. Claudia’s mother, seeing me hesitating a bit, offered to show me the resort. I was surprised to see naked ladies/ women playing volleyball, other sports and swimming with naked men. Not only this but guys taking photographs of their relatives in nude. This made me feel comfortable.

All I can say is it was a best weekend I ever had. I felt healthy, and noticed that I had developed more assurance. Now My lovely wife and I are regular members of that resort. We’ve made . I suggest to all or any people around the world take a rest and give your life a chance to change.

Greatest car ride ever

I consider my first time encounter to be when my(then future) wife and I were taking a road trip to Canada. It was in 1989 and we were driving up Interstate 81 through New York. It turned out to be a beautiful day. My wife was driving the car and we had the windows down. We were both just enjoying the ride as well as the beautiful landscape that was passing by and I started to get the feeling that I was wearing too much clothing , and so I kicked off my shoes and got out of my top.

We drove along for a little while more and I began easing my slacks away. My wife looked at me and asked, “what are you doing?” I told her I was getting cozy. Not long after that I slipped out of my undies, and was cruising up Interstate 81 naked as a Jay bird.

It was amazing! My wife thought I was . I believe she still does but she’s stuck with me for almost 20 years.

Now I realize that wasn’t a group nudist encounter but it was the first time I declared myself a man who likes to be nude. I do have to likewise include that that car ride was the best memory I have of that trip.


Before I get on with the story of how our first nudist experience altered the marriage that my

husband and I appreciated for years, I would like to point out that this really isn’t us in this picture. This is a fun-loving German couple that helped our marriage shift and develop into something entirely new. All thanks to our last holiday and all the fun that we had in Spain.
It all started sometime last spring when my husband and I were arranging our next holiday. It has been our little convention to visit the Mediterranean but even the most amazing section of the world can get a little monotonous after several years. We have been everywhere, from North Africa to turkey and we had loads of fun everywhere. However, this time we decided to do something totally different and we decided that a good thought would be to test out nudism. We had some friends who did this and they always told us how it was amazing. Plus, we both got into contour over the last half a year and we actually felt comfortable. I mean, we were still in our prime and we were convinced that we’d not be a sore sight for anybody.
We found this great resort in Spain and we booked our vacation. When we got there, we started believing that we were perhaps too daring as all those naked bodies intimidated us a bit. Still the folks there knew how to treat first timers and there was no one pressuring us to get naked the very moment we stepped on the grounds of the resort. And it worked. By the end of our second day, we were sunbathing nude and we were loving it. I am able to tell you as a woman that it is freedom that can’t be matched by anything else. Not needing to wear those annoying bikinis or swimsuits actually liberates a girl and the sun and water feel great on the breasts along with the clit. It feels sexual and sensual all at the same time.
And then, the 3rd day, we met the couple sort the graphic, Eric and Greta, a great couple from Bohn, Germany who were regular guests at the resort. They were roughly the same age as us and we overheard them talking about a picture me and my husband enjoyed very much. It turned out that they spoke perfect English and that they were searching for new couples to meet there. I immediately detected that Greta had an amazingly round and healthy bum and that her pussy was all shaven and very alluring. I could say that as a woman. beach blonde cannot even picture what my husband thought.
In any case, we spent the the next couple of days together, doing everything together and after a little while, you stop seeing that you are all nude all the time. Actually, I stopped seeing when my husband brushed against Greta or when Eric brushed against me. And yet, there was always this electricity. And then, one day, two days before we were about to leave, we asked them if they felt that same electricity that the two of us felt and they told us that they did. This never happened to them in each of their years at the resort and after a couple of drinks, we determined to do something about it.
I do not want to reveal any of the aspects, but let us just say that it was the wildest night of our lives and that it was more fun than you could imagine. There was no awkwardness as well all saw each other naked before and it was insanely enjoyable. It was likewise hot as hell as Eric and Greta definitely understood what they were doing and we were not half bad either.

We spent the next night together as well and we’ve remained in touch. We are seriously considering making and it’s actually brought new life to our marriage. Not that we were in a downturn, but nudism together with swinging is the best thing ever.

My first time with any kind of “genuine” nudity was hanging out at my

grandparents’ house wearing just a towel on a weekend when the sole clothing we brought along were being washed. My brother and I were goofing around and sitting on the front stairs of their fairly large house (a Ohio farmhouse with several add-ons over an equivalent variety of years), and I certainly remember noticing how “cool” it felt when the wind blew under my towel.

Hmmm, what is this strange and wonderful sense? Years later I recall going back to my room to change into pajamas and instead returning to the living room wrapped only in a soft comforter. My parents were both still conscious and I joined them by returning to sitting in a rocking chair we’d at the time. I felt as “sneaky” as could be and as if I was getting away with something even by being naked underneath the comforter.
All of these early experiences led up to a want to being MORE nude, more commonly in had just barely started to envision. So, in view ordered some trade paperbacks on nudism from a wholesale book publisher and these really and truly expanded my understanding of the potentials for going nude socially!!! Before I even attempted it I had this idea that I would “love” it more than anything else I had done in life, and that this new found preconception would take me past any kind of reservations or nervousness I might have about undressing.
The grinning people of all ages in my novels appeared so honest and happy that I actually wondered what I had been missing out on for many years! My entire life up to then judging by the ages of the youngest children in these photos, and I felt like this was a portion of life being actively “concealed” from me! I really don’t believe a brief skinny-dip with my brother and a friend really counted, although it was fun and we also did some nude experimenting in sleeping over at the buddy’s house on weekends; nothing more than curious exploration of possibilities for NOT wearing garments.
White Tail Park (then, “Resort” now) was my first organized societal introduction and it couldn’t have been a better time! This was in the late 1980’s, Springtime as well as on a well attended weekend with RVs, campers, day visitors and permanent residents all present. It was an encounter equalling my readings, imagination and expectations and so I was fortunate for such a great intro.

When I was like 18 I had started seeing this girl who lived in an apt with her mother. After dinner plus

a movie we headed back to her place and we walked into the living room only to find her nude mom sleeping on the sofa. She’d thought that her mother would still be at work just to find that Mom only worked a half shift that day, had come home, stripped naked, had a few glasses of wine and fallen asleep watching TV. She gets up drunk and disoriented from slumber and only matter of factly introduces herself to me. I am figuring that since it is only her and residing there nudity may be amazing between them but she likely isn’t OK with some unusual boy seeing her naked and might flip out once she wakes up a bit more and recognizes that she is nude. I start trying to develop an interest in looking at the wall next to me and apologize to her while my date says “she doesn’t care” and begins laughing at me. Turns out they were nudists; at the time I ‘d never been to a nudist place or been nude infront of lots of people at all. After that we ended up all being naked at their inclined a lot.

Another time I was at home in the day and my roommates were both on .

I decided to clean my bathroom and take a shower. I always clean the bathroom bare so I don’t have to worry about getting water or cleaning compounds on my garments. I visit the kitchen to get the mop and pail and on the way back I come round the corner just to be face to face with my roommate’s GF, who’d stayed over the prior night and had been in his room. We both apologized, thinking that we might have piqued the other and immediately laughed about it when we recognized that she wasn’t offended by my nudity and I was not offended by her having viewed mine.

A Newbie at Social Nudism

Being naked outside for the first time proved to be a real experience. I started off with taking my
pet out. I just wore a shirt that went down to below the crotch. I really liked the cool breeze that reached parts of me that
had never felt a cool breeze. All I can declare is
“WOW.” It felt so good that I desired more.

So I reversed the buttons all down the front. That let in more coolness, and I simply felt the “WOW even more powerful. My mind simply said do it. So I
took off the top and there I was totally
bare to the cool wind.

The “”WOW”” was even
more extreme. My mind merely said yes, yes, yes.

I have to stop messing around and only acknowledge
I am now a nudist. I’ve consistently loved being
Naked whenever possible. Now I’m a nudist with
the strong desire to do it with others of a like mind and attitude.

WOW, what a fantastic feeling!

First Awakening

At the office, my supervisor and coworker lived near the very best beach on Long Island and asked me to join his family for a beach day, so I agreed. It turned out to be a private beach, the town’s only resident shore. Jones Beach is quite conservative, so Jim told me to walk far left at the coastline. In minutes I saw people standing by a 10 feet totem pole, they all were naked and had long ponytails, and a sign said “clothes optional.”

We spread a blanket, friends went nude in a casual way, I sat and wondered what to do. Jim said take off your suit. Not going, he said take it away and enjoy the waves. I did, and the windy waves on my body proved to be a completely new life comprehension.

I’ve never become the same inhibited soul after that. Nature was a blast, there all the time, as well as the gift was mine.

First Time For us both

A number of years ago, I began to be drawn to social nudity. I loved being naked since I was around 10. I had to creep out of my pj’s when I slept, then slip back into them. Purely .

Well, around the time that I turned 48 I determined I liked to know more, and started surfing websites. AANR, etc. From this I found Hidden River Resort in north Florida.

I would get information from the AANR site, and various Christian Nudist newsgroups, and then forwards that information to my wife. She was open to trying. So one day we decided to head to Hidden River Resort in north Florida.

We arrived and with a great deal of trepidation, got a tour of the facilities. Afterward we paid the fees, and drove onto the property.

Within only several seconds, I was undressed and feeling free. My wife nonetheless went much slower. She had shorts on and a towel around her top.

We decided to walk the paths first. As we walked she inquired how I felt. “Is not it peculiar?” I shared how freeing it was. We afterward saw another bare couple, and nothing happened! We said hello – and spoke a couple of moments – and it wasn’t weird. It was truly very natural. As we left them, my wife’s towel came off.

Then she looked at me and said “Lets go to the pool.” I was surprised – she had to be nude.

We went back to the vehicle, and she freely undressed, and we walked to the outdoor showers. “Naked as jay birds.”

It was amazing – we spent a few hours in the pool, hanging out and talking. What a fantastic day trip – amazing folks, along with the hostess was top notch!

If you arer worried about getting aroused, or others seeing you – don’t be. When you get your clothes away – we all look the same!

Thanks AANR for the info you provided. Thank you Hidden River for the great intro and also the ease of which you helped us into our comfort zone. Thank you CNC as well as the other Christian newsgroups for helping us see that we can still have our religion – and enjoy social nudity.

Now – we are always looking forward to our next visits, and we’re slowly introducing our family and friends to the lifestyle.

Why Did It Take Me So Long?

On a cruise of northern European capitols several years ago, we spent a day riding bikes along the Baltic coast near Warnemunde. We stopped to have a look at the ocean and recognized we were above a nude beach. First, we saw a youthful and fit couple. Then we saw who looked like me, mature and not so fit.

I decided that I needed to skinny-dip for the first time in my adult life. My wife did not join me then. At the water’s edge, I removed my clothing and within minutes felt comfortable and free while swimming in the sea.

Since then, we’ve joined AANR, visited clubs in the U.S. and Europe and I frequently skinny-dip throughout the summer. I’ve found that if I swim early enough in the morning, I have the lake to myself. Now I can not believe that I had to become old in order to feel comfortable in my skin.


Though I’ve considered myself a nudist, or naturist, for about 9 years now (I’m 41) I

really began down the path to being a nudist right before I entered my early teens. How I learned of nudism I really don’t recall. Since I was raised in an extremely traditional family I do recall that my parents opinion of it wasn’t positive. So I’m pretty confident doing something that my parents would be against was part of my motivation for me at the time.
During of 1975 my mom got a job. Up until then she was a stay at home mom while my father went to work everyday. With my mother working now too it meant that suddenly I had the summer home to myself during the weekday.
I started by being nude within the home while they were gone to work. Normally I’d only do things anyone might do but I ‘d do it bare. One time I saw some sun coming in through the front door and decided I liked to get outside bare.
At this point I should describe my area. It was an old blue-collar neighborhood in a major Texas city. My backyard was a little bigger than half an acre. When they assembled the neighborhood they didn’t include an street.

At the far back there were two very old wooden tool sheds (which play a role in the story later), some trees, as well as a close jungle of bamboo that blocked views to the dwellings in the rear. On both sides of the back yard were other dwellings with only a wire fence separating the lawns. This meant our property was open to seeing by neighbors on both sides. They’d fences, trees, and constructions that meant none of the neighbors beyond them could be viewed. The front yard was typical sized with a driveway and no fencing or privacy for most of it. We lived on a curve at an intersection with a different neighborhood road.
My first experiences going outside nude were in my backyard when my parents were gone. I’d look to see whether the neighbors cars on both sides were gone (being that everyone worked I assumed that meant no one was home) and then strip and go out the back door. I found it exhilarating every time I did this. So I chose to find more ways to be nude outside more frequently. Which meant I needed to find a method to be nude when my parents were home.
I chose to convert one of the primeval tool sheds into my own personal naturist resort. What I told my parents was that it would be my club house. Of course since I didn’t have a club I imagine that did not matter. It would have just looked to them like another one of these silly notions I had all the time. One of the tool sheds, which I imagine had truly been a rather good sized workshop long time ago, was in pretty good condition structurally but it was a catastrophe inside. Decades of soil and junk had piled up. So I grabbed a broom and paper towels and started cleaning. Once it was clean (to use the word loosely) it was time to allow it to be private. So I got some trash bags, which were solid black, and cut the seams and used them to cover a sizable open part that faced a neighbor’s house. Since the tool shed was in the far back buried in the bamboo I was secluded from our house and everyone else’s now. Plus, the other shed, which was bigger, gave additional protection from the perspective of the neighbors. I actually don’t know how many hours that summer I spent out there listening to the radio or reading while bare.
But none of this was enough for me. So I chose to push the envelope some more.
In the summer of 1976 I began climbing out my bedroom window naked at night while my parents were asleep. My bedroom window was on the right or left side of the home using a brick wall dividing it from the neighbors. So being there meant I was outside looking at the front yard while bare. But since it was dark no one could see me from the road. The single risk was if my parents decided to check on me and noticed I was not in the room. Gradually I started to walk further and further into the lawn each night. Being that it was around midnight or after there wasn’t any traffic and no one was outside but me. Nor could they see me from any windows. At or twice I jogged down the block to the stop sign and walked back.
But this wasn’t the biggest risk I took. At the moment I also stopped using the back door to get to my backyard when my parents were gone. Instead I made the decision to walk out the front door bare, in broad daylight, and across the house to the front gate. But rather than use the gate I’d climb over the fence just for the encounter. Anything to boost the sensation of being bare. And this was when I started climbing trees in the back yard, which was dangerous as well.
Now comes the extremely foolish section of the story when it all falls apart. One day, Lord knows why, I chose to take the garbage out while naked. Maybe I was nave and thought I could simply get away with this since I appeared to get away with so much else. Or perhaps it was the delight of the risk of being caught. Recall there wasn’t an alley so rubbish pick up happened in front of the house next to the road. So here I go wearing just my birthday suit out to the street carrying a bag of rubbish. And wouldn’t you understand it some neighbor children (who I did not understand) went by on their bikes, halted and stared for a second. I turned and walked back in the house frightened I was going get in huge trouble. Nothing appeared to come of this over the next day or two so I figured it was cool. Boy was I wrong.
Later that week I went to a youth event down in Houston. Upon my return as I was dropped off by a friend I saw my parents sitting on the front porch as they generally did when the weather was pleasant. But when I came up I saw they were not happy. It was then that I learned the children had told their parents who’d called the cops. The cops had arrived while I was gone to investigate a report of a flasher. But when they spoke to the kids that had seen me they were so intimidated that they wouldn’t discuss and the cops agreed not to pursue it.
Now don’t go believing I was out of the woods yet. As I wrote earlier my parents were very conservative and did not approve of nudism. They just couldn’t understand why I ‘d do something like this. And they talked about how disappointed they were in me. So this ended my outside nudist teen adventures to say the least.
Off and on through the years later I’d still sometimes be nude in while home alone. But even after getting married, my wife and I did not go around the house bare. Then about 9 years ago I learned of Christian Naturists and discovered there was no conflict between my beliefs and naturism. In fact, I learned that they actually go together. By visiting naturist web sites I learned more of naturist doctrine and body recognition. While my wife became a household nudist I accepted societal naturism as being a large part of my life.
Today whenever the temperature permits I am nude at home. I have written numerous articles for the Christian Naturist newsletter Fig Leaf Forum. I maintain two naturist web sites along with participating here on Cat’s message board and others. And I am a moderator of a local Yahoo Christian Naturist group, which meets jointly monthly. So now I’m participating in societal nudist events at house parties and naturist resorts. All my close friends are either naturists or know of and have not a problem with my naturism.

Two first experiences

I started appreciating nudism by sleeping in the nude. Later I started to do my work round the house bare. My wife was surprised when I came downstairs naked one day and I really could tell her reluctance.

One late summer day after working on the boat I was really warm so I drove over to the lake. Because it was mid-evening there were very few people at the beech so it managed to locate a secluded area. I walked into the lake and when torso deep took off my swimsuit. It felt amazing. Before I walked out of the water, so as to not offend anyone, I put the suit back on. I will never forget the sensation of the first time naked in Lake Michigan.

Towards the end of summer I walked from the lake into the dunes. I removed my swimsuit and was nude outside, other than my backyard, for the very first time. I recall thinking to myself that I’m a “nudist.”

After hiking in the dunes several times but concerned about clothed hikers I decided on trying a nudist club. The best part of going to a club is it is possible to question along the nature trail, go into the pool, etc. and not be concerned about other folks.

Being at a club, it doesn’t matter if someone is naked or not. YOU can really be bare and enjoy. I only wish I’d have started this earlier.

Everything I Thought It Would Be

After discussing a visit to Gunnison Beach here in NJ, my partner and I made the decision to make the excursion. I’m 40 and my wife is 41. We were both aware that it was ‘clothes optional’ and I knew that most people would be naked, but I believe my wife thought it would be a 50-50 split (naked, partially nude).

When we got there she was a bit overwhelmed. She did not take her suit off at all. Nevertheless, after a while of sitting in our chairs and viewing the scenery, I believed I really could take the following step. I asked my wife if she thought it was OK, and she looked at me with a look that said, “are you insane?” But she then said, “sure, do it.”

A few seconds later, I stood up and took off my swim suit. And guess what? Nothing occurred. No quake. No bolt of lightning. Nothing. Everyone went about their business.

I, nevertheless, loved this new feeling…sitting in the sun, wind blowing…it was incredibly refreshing and freeing. I adored it. After a few beers, I asked my wife if she wanted to walk to the water with me. Again, she looked at me with a look that said, “are you mad?”

I said, “why not.” So, at first she did not want to go, but after a second she said certain. That was rather intimidating. I’m walking in my birthday suit through dozens of women and men.

Anyway, the water was wonderful. Swimming sans clothing was a first for me too…and it was another amazing experience. I made the walk from our seats to the water three or four times, every time appreciating it more and more.

I’d love to return and try it again. My wife is now speaking about going back and removing her top. Hey, whatever makes her comfortable. We are going to see the way that it goes.

Our Nude Venture

When I was a lad the words “naked” or “nude” were not part of my family’s vocabulary. The sole nudity we understood started with your shower, and finished as soon as you could grab your towel. My brother and I never went shirtless or barefoot. We were never even allowed to wear sandals or flip flops. Being bare was never an alternative.

As always, life goes on. Faculty, work, marriage, kids, divorce; all flew by in what seemed to be a brief period of time. With the birth of the Internet I found out about this matter call “social nudism.” I was intrigued and the thought grew slowly that I’d like to participate in this naked experience. After my divorce, I started to sleep in the nude, which I found to be much more comfortable than wearing pajamas. Still I lacked any social interaction with other nudists.

About this time I remarried. My wife, of Eastern European background, was open to our sleep nude. Following the children moved out to begin their particular families, we began to be much freer with our clothing at home and we talked frequently about nudity and whether it was right or wrong according to Biblical standards.

As Christians we wanted to do the right thing. Examination of the Scriptures led us to the final outcome that merely being naked, and being nude with others wasn’t in battle with our Bible. We began to be nude at home more and more. We still had not been able to go anyplace that permitted nudity.

Ultimately we had our opportunity one winter when we were on a Caribbean cruise. The boat docked in Jamaica. I had already learned that we could get day passes at a resort that had an Au Natural isle. We took a taxi to the resort and checked in at the desk. They needed to show us round the resort but astonishingly my wife would have nothing to do with such a tour. She needed to get out to the island as soon as possible. I couldn’t agree more. When we arrived, we located two lounge chairs in a sunny place. We had our clothes off in the blink of an eye. Like many others have said, it was so good to be naked. We swam around a little and then came the moment of truth – meeting other individuals. We spoke to some of the other guests and we loved our time there so much we truly hated to leave. Being nude on the island was so natural and simple. We were hooked!

This summer we have traveled to three nudist clubs/resorts. We even ran in a clothing optional 5K race at Turtle Lake Resort in Michigan. We’d so much fun. My partner and I agreed that we should have done this sooner! Why did we wait so long?

Our Michigan First Time

My lovely wife and I frequently vacation in Michigan. We are home nudists for the past six months. By this I mean that we were remaining naked occasionally after a shower and then we began being nude before bedtime. We drink coffee and eat lunch nude.

My wife was unwilling but she concurred that there was no damage since we’ve been married more than 35 years. This summer we went north and found a isolated lonely beach in northern Michigan. We walked for miles to discover a peaceful area to read and sunbathe. Most beaches in Michigan are full of noisy children and furious parents. We only wanted seclusion to find some peace and revel in the sunshine.

Nonetheless, I went swimming after an hour of sunlight and my swimsuit got too wet to lay back on my towel so I took it off. My wife, who’s terribly shy and incredibly spiritual was upset that we might be detained for my nakedness. We’re old-fashioned Republicans and we usually do not condone criminal actions. But I explained to her that as long as nobody was seeing me naked I committed no crime.

She was becoming hot and after much complaining she also brought of her swimsuit and went for a dip at the lake. I really don’t know why being nude is a crime if you have a designated location where it could be legal to be without your clothing. Anyway we’ll start writing our representatives to alter the laws in the Michigan National Lakeshore so that individuals don’t have to feel like criminals if they violate no one.

I really don’t understand why with the membership your organizations has, nobody has come up with a strategy to legalize some areas of Michigan to be clothing optional. We have to modify the perception that nakedness is a offense that should be punished by the law. A lewd act should be penalized but a naked body is no reason to be detained or punished.

Allow the Adventure Begin!

I’ve always found it fascinating how different people explain their “first time” nudist encounter. While the first social nudist experience is a significant occasion, I actually consider two “first times” when I think of my nudist life.

First, is the conscious decision to adopt nudism as part of who I am as a person — to buck social norms, to accept something some others see as strange. From my earliest period, I’ve always loved being naked. Yet, I was far from open about it, keeping it hidden, keeping it to myself, and like many more, only spending time naked when alone. Why? Panic. Fear of ridicule, embarrassment, and not being who others wanted me to be.

Additionally, there was a particular level of self doubt that maybe my nudist hobby was “a bit peculiar.” Maybe was just a period. It wasn’t until early adulthood that I finally said, nope, this isn’t peculiar, it isn’t a period — it is pure, it’s wholesome, it’s genuine, it’s entertaining, and it’s beautiful. More importantly, it is part of me. I am quite proud of that decision. It is an achievement every nudist or naturist shares.

My first “social” encounter was not at a club or a beach or anything like that. was in my home. It was the night I got up the nerve, turned to my wife and said, “I think I Had like to be nude round the home sometimes…..just because I like it. Will that freak you out?” Obviously, she knew I certainly enjoyed being naked, but I ‘d never sought out time to be bare just for the pure enjoyment of it. Naturally, she did not mind. I’ll never forget the exhilaration of walking into our living room, just moments after, completely bare.

Since that time, I have had many “nude adventures.” As much as I cherish each if them, they all go back to the day I first determined nudism was going to be part of my own life as well as the nighttime I shared it with the love of my life. I am a better person for it — happier, more understanding, more accepting. I’m happy to say I have not looked back!


First one I tried was the Therma Europa Centre in the middle of Berlin.

Price was 18Euro for a complete day pass, which is good value I believe. young family nudism went on a Saturday and stayed for about 8 hours.

The changing rooms are seperate for male and females. In the main complex there’s a pool, 4 saunas, 2 steam rooms, hot and cold spas, plus a bar and restaurant. Plus there’s additionally places outside where you are able to swim and relax. The clientelle really is pretty much 50/50 men and females, and of all ages. Girl come here either by theirselves, with friends, or with partners – unlike the united kingdom where a large proportion of girls who see are with a partner. Everybody who goes in the sauna or steam room is fully bare(unlike these UK places where many people keep themselves wrapped in a towel) and lots of folks simply walk about the complicated nude(though in the restaurant and bar place you need to put on a bath robe). And also unlike these UK places, there’s no perving or “swinging” going on. Everyone here is here because they enjoy utilizing the sauna, spa, and swimming . I really loved my time there. This is actually the type of place I Have been looking for a very long time. It was quite busy on the day that I went.

Then on the day which I returned back to the UK I had a little time to spare, so I went along to the Sauna Garten in Blub, at Buschkrugallee 64. Wasn’t that easy to locate the real location itself. I needed to enter the Hotel reception and inquire, who pointed me to the other side of the car park. Afterward I couldn’t spot it easily, because there was no clear signs at the entry to say that this was a sauna complex, there was just a sign(can not recall what it said) to suggest that this was the entrance to a pub. Anyway, ventured in and found that this was really the sauna. The cost was 18Euro for up to 4 hours, or 20Euro for a day pass. As I only had just over 2 hours to spare nonetheless, I went for the 4 hours option. All really nice interior. The changing room is unisex. Afterward in the key area there is 6 saunas, and 2 steam rooms – all of fluctuating temperatures and fashions. Plus there is a tiny pool, sanatariam, and relaxation region. Again, everyone nude in the sauna and steam rooms – none of this daft towel wearing business. A good number of folks walk throughout the complex nude. Didn’t seem to be quite as balanced a blend of genders here though(on this occasion anyway), perhaps about 62% men/38% females at my rough estimate. I went on a Tuesday afternoon between 3 and 5pm. There was probably only about 30 folks here at that time. I expect it’d have got a little more active later that evening after I ‘d gone. I was unhappy to have to leave the spot! As with the Therma Europa Centre, I located this sauna absolutely fantastic. And I would see again if/when I’m next in Berlin.

If only they’d spots such as this in England. It will be fantastic to see one each week to relax nude. Instead all we get here(apart from the UK festival saunas that are highly recommended) are these pitiful seedy “naturist health Spas” which are dominated by perverts and swingers(due to the inclusion of “play rooms” upstairs), along with a largely man clientelle. Never ever again will I pay to visit those areas again – The cost I pay(paid) for those(?15 for Bristol Gardens, ?18 for Rio’s) will pay for half the price of a return plane ticket to Berlin! I paid merely ?35 for my flight to Berlin from London Stansted.

I anticipate returning to Berlin or elsewhere in Germany later this year, and spending a day or two nude at any of these outstanding sauna complexes again.

German Saunas = certainly brilliant!!

UK Saunas = totally rubbish
