“I understand as a group have never been to a clothing optional area,” I said. “I know you are curious about it, so I want to offer you a lesson in social nudity. Allow me to describe to you what societal nudity is really all about.
As I stood there all eyes were now on me and I said, “First of all it is a non-sexual experience, and the very first thing you need to know is that individuals may looks at first. It’s human nature.”
I turned around to be sure that everybody could see, and I said, “Now that you’ve all “checked me out”, I request you to do this to make a point. It demonstrates you that I know you are looking and that I’m not ashamed or embarrassed and it lets you know that you are natural tendency to look at it is not wrong, not nasty and it’s not unacceptable to me.”
I then entered the water, and introduced myself to every one of the folks. The tension eased, and everyone relaxed and we talked for several hours about all issues from social nudity to physics to good films, occupations, school and families. They were a wonderful group of young individuals: university students, a disabled veteran, a Registered Nurse, a multimedia producer, a US National Park Ranger, and I really don’t recall what the other woman’s occupation was. All were relaxed, no one else got naked, but the social interaction was amazing.
By 6pm we’d all been in the pool for at least 4 hours and they needed to leave to get back to their camp in the City of Rocks State Park, 4 miles away. As everyone got ready to leave and pick up their things I asked this question, “OK, now everyone, how many of you even remember that I’m nude?”
I really could see the light go on in their eyes as they understood just what it was all about. I know some of them will be back to Faywood Hot Springs and I know they WOn’t be wearing clothing this time.

First time encounter 🙂
So I am a 17 year man from Australia, I’ve always enjoyed being naked by myself and had dream of visiting the neighborhood nude beach with some mates, male and female. Today I finally got the chance; we walked down to the beach and continued on to the nudist half of the beach, we then stripped off and went for a swim. It felt so natural to be naked socially.
After our swim we lay on the shore and dried off then went for a walk and enjoyed the view ; we have now decided as a mixed group of friends it’s going to become a standard practice for our buddies. Undoubtedly going to happen more in the long run.
My wife Rose and I are newly weds in our mid 50s. Throughout our own lives we skinny dipped as children and teens, but never were able to do this as adults in our previous unions. Last summer, just before we got married, we started enjoying going in the pool nude. We sat on the patio to dry off after getting out letting our skin bask in the sun.
What a great feeling.
Not long after this, we began doing yard work, nude, in the back yard where http://serv2.org gave us some privacy. We’ve got a neighbor lady who likes to poke her head over the fence to say hello when she hears us in the back yard (I believe that will cease after the very first time she sees us nude). Now we spend a great deal of time naked in the back yard and we should since we’ve done so much work back there.
A few months ago we were seeing a program on TV about the RV lifestyle. It captured our attention because we travel around in a 25 foot travel trailer. One of the things in the software was Garments-Discretionary campgrounds. We though it was neat and that was the last we thought about it. That is until a couple of weeks ago when my wife brought it up indicating it would be fun to locate a Clothes-Optional campground and go see what it is all about.
Over the next few weeks I spent lots of time searching the internet for Clothing-Discretionary campgrounds. There are not many in Arizona, in fact there are not many nudist organizations in Arizona, period. I found one near Phoenix, Shangri la Ranch, which advertises as a family oriented nudist camp. I did even more research on Shangri la Ranch and found it is a remarkable facility and comes highly recommended by posters on various bare diversion forums. I named the office at Shangri la Ranch and explained my lovely wife and I’d like to visit for a weekend and it would be our very first time at a nudist resort. They were more than happy to accommodate us, even putting us in an RV space right across from the club house, pools, cafe, and hot tub.
After setting up camp and having lunch, we lose our clothes and headed for the pool. It felt so natural and free, we instantly felt at home. We went to the dance in the club house that evening and had a ball dancing nude for 3 1/2 hours. We didn’t care we were naked and no one else cared we were nude either. We met several very fine couples who were excited to meet us and observed our first time with us.
Increased and I can barely wait to really go back.
I learned of another nudist resort that’s highly recommended not too far from us that we’ll be heading to possibly in November. Terra Cotta Inn in Palm Springs. Tom and Mary Clare seem to be exceptional hosts and the inn is just that which we would like.
I hope Rose and I become regulars at Shangri la Ranch and Terra Cotta Inn. We’re keeping our eyes and ears sharp for additional places to visit.
We’re going to love nudism, Clothes-Discretionary and no clothing resorts and actions.
See you around. We only joined AANR yesterday!

Wow. I did it.
I had learned of a nude occasion at a closeby fitness center. It was sponsored by a neighborhood nudist club which leased the facility for an evening once per month or so. I’d become determined to proceed to the occasion having consistently been intrigued by nudism but never trying it. I was as nervous as I really could get worrying about how I Had “respond” but I was perpetrated. I drove over to the health club that Saturday evening and sat in the car merely eyeing the place for a good 10 minutes. I was not about to chicken out. I went in, paid my admission fee and headed for the locker room. I quickly figured out that everything was co-ed. There was a couple in the men’s locker room and they were nude. Oh my. How would this go? LOL. I simply stripped as quickly as I could. Out the door I went with not a thing on. Wow. Was this great or what? I took a quick dip in the pool and then went to the sauna and hot tub. I was feeling quite comfortable bare. This was fantastic. I was hooked on nudism. Everyone was so friendly and open. I got involved in the volleyball game. Here I was playing co ed nude volleyball. I was absolutely hooked. This was fantastic. I stayed until the event was over appreciating the entire experience. 15 years later I am still at it. A nudist for life.
18 Years back I went to a nude beach for the very first time and now I cannot appear to go eslewhere
I once heard about a nude beach near where I lived on the news as it made some contraversy. I was already sleeping in the nude for some time, never thought I’d try it outside, but then one day I went to the seashore out of fascination. I did not go there to go http://ournudism.com , but after talking to one regular there I found myself taking my suit off and going skinny dipping!
Wow! What a sensation it was swimming in the ocean with no swimsuit! I began coming back up until the beach I went to got raided. I was fortunate I didn’t get caught, but afterwards the seashore lost http://videonudism.com , and single men began to be the standard offsetting the balance of women and men.
I have to say that did not stop me from becoming a naturist as I joined a landed club nearby and met plenty of friends while at it and the main idea is the fact that it wasn’t sexual being around identical pictures that Playboy and pornography make degrading just in real life.
I even learned afterwards how great it is to be in a motel room while on vacation with no clothing on and even not shut the bathroom door. I do however, live with my mom who does not understand about this, but I still sleep naked at night though! Wow is all I can say as no right words can characterize the independence you have without clothing! I have been hooked and there’s no going back for me!
