Social Nudity: Nothing Is Better

Of course, it wasn’t such a big deal being among naked men; that happens in locker rooms all the time; but it was very different seeing a woman undress in mixed company. I was particularly struck by how casually a slim redhead removed her clothes while continuing her conversation with her husband, totally unconcerned about others — including me, a stranger — being present.

But those in the car were correct: Within five minutes, being among naked people of both sexes seemed just as natural as being among clothed people in any other setting. While I of course noticed the naked bodies, I was paying more attention to what they were saying and being impressed by the diversity of people there. For they were a diverse and interesting group, ranging from puzzle-makers to computer gurus, telephone executives to truck drivers, bankers to factory workers and nurses … and even a Baptist minister. I would discover that naturism fits everyone from fundamentalist Christians and conservative Catholics to atheists and agnostics. There is a spiritual element to being clad as we came into the world, feeling all the effects of heat, cold, wind, and rain.

  1. I agree with you totally. I have been a social nudist for 15 years. I have been a nudist all my life without even knowing it. LOL. It is funny how you can grow up with nudity being a normal part of life, without knowing you are a nudist. But the era when I grew up, boys went nude alot. We swam nude everywhere. Pools didn't allow clothing in them back then.

    I agree with you about social nudity becoming a natural thing after about 5 minutes. I remember the first time I went to a nudist resort and stripped off and went nude with other people outdoors. There was an initial adrenaline rush but then everything just evened out and I enjoyed being nude with everyone else as if we had been nude in front of each other all of our lives. It is so funny, how being nude fades away when you are with other nude people.

    I also agree with you about social status. When with a group of nude people you can not tell one social class from another. You have no idea who is rich and who is poor. Who is influential and who is not. What occupations each has? Basically you are all even. Which makes conversation and social activity with each other so much easier.

    What I love the most about social nudity is the Freedom it gives you. I have never felt more free than when I am in nature totally nude. It is like I have went back in time to when people were sinless and had absolutely no shame or guilt. Nudity is liberating. Everyone should try it at least once in their lives.
