I think the most awkward one occurred soon after we were married

fkk-peopleI think the most awkward one occurred soon after we were married.

My in-laws lived nearby, and would often call in unannounced.

One sunny morning while I was working nude in the backyard my father-in-law walked around the corner of the house, and was right near me before either of us had the chance to avoid the situation.

I stopped shovelling and tried to stand “strategically” whilst carrying on a slightly aawkward conversation for a few minutes.

He then went inside to see my wife (his daughter). We (wife and I) laughed about it afterwards, but it was never spoken of between me and F-i-L!
Strangest and most liberating was being in a crown of 4,300 naked people posing nude in central Melbourne for Spencer Tunick in October 2001 – at some point of the morning it occurred to me that whatever our race, we are much more alike than we are different – a fairly serious and comforting thought coming so recently after the horror of September 11!

Wrong Locker Room?

fkk-picsWrong Locker Room?

I’ve never done it, but I have been surprised by a girl in the wrong place.

There were 4 high school boys who’d come to swim at the gym with a few girl friends or sisters, and they were showering and steaming and taking their time to get done while the girls got more and more impatient outside waiting to go home.

Eventually, one of the girls threatened to come in to fetch them. All four were buck naked, rare for .za adolescents in our locker rooms these days, and thought the idea hilarious and so one of them told her to try it. They were still laughing their butts off when she did, and she got more than an eyeful. I’ve never seen such a change in mood – the four guys went into a complete tailspin, diving for cover and towels. She gave me a quick “sorry” on her way out, presumably a little embarrassed at having found someone other than her four friends in there.

Wow, the boys were upset. They didn’t find my lack of sympathy terribly amusing, either. I think they were hoping I’d have been annoyed and kicked up a fuss and told the girl/s off and thus given them something else to talk about instead of what I imagine was a quiet ride home and much discussion at school the next day.

Being relativly new to the world of nudism

fkk-rochelleBeing relativly new to the world of nudism i have very few nudist experiances so mine would probarly be my first nude experiance, although more recently i met a women at a beach who told me her first nudest experiance she was 17 years old and holidaying with family in america, her parents had gone sight seeing for the day and she decided to check out some of the local beaches. after some time of searching she found a beautiful serene little cove where there was know one else around and as the day had started out bad weather wise she had not packed her bathing suit but as the day had brightened up she thought that she could not pass up the idea of a quick swim and as the beach was desserted she didnt think anything of stripping off and taking A dip anyway after some time of swimming she started to get cold and so swam to a small rocky island about 50 yards out. after warming on the island she began to make back toward the beach after reaching the beach she made the shocking discovery that while she had been sunbathing on the island the tide had come in and all of her clothes trainers and all had been taken by the sea. she was stranded no clothes no towel and what made matters worse was that she had walked to the beach so she had no car, there was only one thing to do she would have to walk back through a busy resedential estate in broad daylight stark naked, so she did it. she told me that she must have seen over 60 people over that to mile walk back to her apartment an it was the most exhilerating experiance of her life. now thats guts !

I went to a nude beach for the first time two weeks ago in CA

fkk-frankreichI went to a nude beach for the first time two weeks ago in CA. (Black’s Beach) I was alone, and as a guy, was a bit concerned about seeming like a perv and not wanting to be gawked at by gay guys. So I chose a spot on the beach seemed relatively safe. Not completely isolated, but not near anyone. Well, after I worked up the nerve to shed my clothes, it felt great. Especially when I went in the water.

So as my nervousness was subsiding, I just had fun swimming and enjoying the water. After a few minutes I realized there were two nude young women nearby, who came down to the water after me. (Mostly I realized this because suddenly there were 5 or 6 guys flocking the area too. What the heck?!) I was a little annoyed, feeling like I was going to be lumped in with these other losers following the girls, though I was actually there first. Well, just as I was starting to leave the water, I realized the girls had a waterproof camera. So I decided to say something rather than just walk away awkward. I acted like I was a little shocked and annoyed that they had a camera there. Then walked over to them reached my hand out and suggested that I could take a picture of the two of them. (Keep in mind this is my FIRST time at a nude beach. I’m very conservative and have never even been naked with my girlfriend. Can you say NERVOUS?! But I just tried to hide it.)

Well, the long story short, they laughed and let me take their picture; and we stayed there and had fun in the water together for probably another 15 minutes. Later I worked up even more nerve, an went over to them on the beach with my camera and asked them if we could all take a picture together… which we did.

What a completely amazing experience! I have gone from being afraid to take a shower in the men’s locker room at the gym, to being comfortable in my own skin around almost anyone, including those two young, attractive women. What a confidence booster!

I went to Gunnison Beach last weekend and had a fantastic time meeting other people. Guys, girls, and couples. I still don’t think I’m ready to go au naturale with people I know, but this is definitely a liberating experience that I plan to continue enjoying.

Of course, erections should be covered up!

fkk-picturesHowever, they will occur dispite everyone’s efforts to prevent them because many of us are still making the transition from the textile lifestyle. Male physiology makes it impossible for a man to remain completely flaccid throughout the day.

Most thoughtful guests at a beach or resort are terribly embarrased by erections and are asking for suggestions on this forum on how to prevent them and how to gracefully make your exit when they do occur. Many of us who are new to this life would also like some reassurance that the problem will diminish with time and better understanding.

A G string is not an acceptable solution. Complete nudity is the normal state for men as well as women. We need to learn new thinking and behavior, not go back to the textile world’s way of viewing things. I have never seen male G strings for sale anywhere. Even if I could find one, I wouldn’t wear it. Many naturists and fair-minded textile people would consider it more sexually provocative than mere innocent nudity.

A libertine or an exhibitionist may occasionally wander into a nudist crowd, but I am not talking about them. Most naturists want such people evicted from polite society.

I do believe that it is helpful to discuss etiquette and basic biology. I wish I had learned some of these lessons when I was a boy, perhaps of middle school age. It’s not fair for children to suffer in ignorance and silence because adults are too embarassed to talk about the facts of life and about basic nudist etiquette, even the less delicate topics.

It has been suggested that a public forum is inappropriate for such frank discussions, because children may stumble upon it. I hope that parents and teachers are closely monitoring the Internet usage of children and providing some guidance to teens. I firmly believe that at some age, perhaps middle school, boys and girls need to be reading the sort of information in this forum and have their parents there to guide them through these topics that they will soon be confronted with at the cusp of adolescence. To support my contention, I must call attention to the fact that INA has created a thread specifically to discuss issues such as this.

To GalSurfer: I am especially concerned about the sensibilities of the female contributors to this forum. Let me assure you that I am opposed to sexual “flaunting” as you put it, because it is demeaning and intimidating to those who are forced to endure it. I think some of us made a poor choice of words by saying “arousal” without quickly explaining that in its mildest form, it may not be perceptible to the casual observer. I don’t know any men of good will who would not quickly retreat from public view if matters took a turn for the worse. If any readers don’t know how to behave, this forum can help quickly bring “newbie” behavior in line with our community’s standards. Better to learn it here than on the beach!

I would say, ” This is the men’s locker room.”

fkk-nudist-videoThere was a water park/ theme park that I used to attend many years ago. The signage at the locker rooms for the water park was very poor. Moreover, the entrance took people right past a row of changing booths with no curtains, or a clear view of some of the showers. This led to a situation where unknowing women, sometimes with their youngsters in tow, would wander in, only to find me or other men in a nude state. The results were always one of two things. Either A) the woman would apologize, I would say, “That’s okay,” and the woman would leave or cool.gif the woman would seem stunned and stand there . I would say, ” This is the men’s locker room.” The woman would nod and leave.

The textile public swimming pool I belonged to before I moved this year had a men’s locker that often found women wandering in, thinking they were on the lady’s side. Upon seeing me or other nude men, they would always, quietly, turn and leave, or apologize and leave. I would say it happened maybe once or twice a year. Only once did I ever hear one of the men express annoyance.

On the rest room usage, I was once at a visitor’s center at a national park where there was a long line of ladies outside both the ladies, and the men’s room. As I approached the men’s room, one of the ladies informed me, ” if you just need to use the urinal, you can go right in. As none of the ladies in line disputed that, I bypassed them and used the urinal. Nobody seemed to care. When I was at an airport in a foreign country a few years back, I walked into the men’s room to find a lady cleaning the floors. I turned around, to look for another rest room, but she told me, ” No no, you can use ( the facility).” Again, neither of us seemed to care, so all was well.

I asked my wife if she had ever noticed any guys wandering into the ladies locker room. She told me that only once did she ever see such a thing. Once, while she was at our textile pool, changing clothes, she heard the female attendant shout, ” Workmen are coming through the locker room.” Escorted by the attendant, 2 male workers walked through, inspecting some work that had been done. My wife was not visible to them at the time and nobody was using the showers, which had no curtains.

I’ll probably make it to some more B.A.N.G. events

fkk-picturesLabor Day weekend usually signals the end of the summer. This summer, I didn’t spend as much nude time outdoors as I would’ve liked. This was mainly due to the closing of Eastover (does this mean we need to change the name of this Yahoo group?). Not until the last week of August did I spend some significant time nude in the sun. Thru a group for massage exchanges, I med someone for a trade that has a small yard that has some privacy. After our trade on each other, we spent some time in the yard having a lite bite. It was kinda nice. Most of my nude time was spent indoors in my place, at B.A.N.G. (Boston Area Naturist Group) events, and at some nude yoga classes.
During the last week of August, I went to GNI for the last 5 day period. As always, it’s nice to be nude for a few days with old friends and making new ones. Again this year I held a massage workshop, and taking the lead from an Eastover fellow I also held a Massage Therapist Roundtable. One attendee that is a photographer was seeking people to model for him to experiment with different poses. Guess who signed up to help? I’m sure you all remember the scorching sun we had during the summer. My first 2 days (Wed. and Thurs.)at the Gathering were comfortable albeit cloudy, but could’ve been warmer. Friday the sun really came thru for the whole day and it was really warm. Saturday, the last full day, most of us needed to put sun block on. Rather than go straight home the next day, I went to visit an eastover aquaintance in another part of PA for a few days. I was hoping to spend some more time nude at there place, but ironicly they don’t spend any time nude in their home. I didn’t want to force the issue; it’s their home and I was just a visitor. Now, the summer is over.

Before the year is over I’ll probably make it to some more B.A.N.G. events and some more nude yoga classes. It would be nice to meet someone to visit Cypress Cove or travel to another resort with. How about the rest of you? How did you spend your summer nude?

my first visit to a clothing optional resort

fkk-familyHello to all, this is my first post on this forum and it comes after my first visit to a clothing optional resort.
My first naked outside experience occurred when I was probably 10. My cousins dared me to run around our grandmother’s house naked. I took the dare and loved it. I have looked for chances to be naked outside ever since. However, being raised in a conservative family and now married to a wonderful woman who was also raised conservatively I haven’t had many opportunities.
I am naked around the house as much as possible, but that is becoming limited these days as our daughter is getting older and our conservative upbringing and ideas of modesty are causing me to be clothed more around her. The cover up was causing me to go a little crazy though, I needed to be naked somewhere. I was doing stupid things, going naked in places that if I was caught I could get in trouble.
All that said, the wife and kids were out of town this weekend, so I took the opportunity to go to a clothing optional resort nearby and try it out for a little while.
I had two main concerns going in, one of which had been eased by reading other posts on this forum. I was afraid of getting an erection. Didn’t happen, not even close. My other concern, and guys you’ll appreciate this, was that after swimming, exercise, or just being nervous my penis and testicles shrivel up and I feel like I look like a five year old. I was afraid that the anxiousness associated with my first experience being nude publicly would cause this to occur and I would be self concious about perceived size. A quick check of the situation about five minutes before I arrived confirmed that fear. I was anxious and so were the boys. However, after a quick tour with the owner and checking in for the day I was feeling pretty relaxed. Less worried about a first experience and more pleased with the opportunity to do something that I knew I wanted to do. Without nervousness or hesitation I parked the car and used it as my locker. With people walking around both clothed and nude and stripped off right there and headed for the pool. And I am happy to report the boys were hanging loose, so fear number two turned out to be a non factor.
As for the visit itself, it was so so. I went alone, and while the people were friendly and said hello, most kept to themselves. There wasn’t much going on at the time. There were probably 30 to 40 people around the pool and that was it. No one was in the lodge or hot tub, so the pool and lounge deck where the only choices for socializing.
All in all is was a good experience. Like most who post about their first time, my nervousness was gone very quickly. Now I just need to convince my wife that it is a good idea for her to try it.

ffk-nudistsIt reminds me of what I read in one of Frank Herbert’s Dune books once. I love google, it found it for me. Here it is:
There was this drylander who was asked which was more important, a literjon of water or a vast pool of water? The drylander thought a moment and then said: “The literjon is more important. No single person could own a great pool of water. But a literjon you could hide under your cloak and run away with it. No one would know.”

We treat nudity, and sexuality, as things that are so precious, we literally have to hide it from others as we fear that, exposed, everyone would try to get it. In a land where it is everywhere, however, there is no need for such fear. In a way, many western cultures are already like this in relation to many arab cultures, such as Saudi Arabia. There, they fear seeing anything but the slits of the eyes of women for fear that a man would be tempted by one. Here we are apalled at this idea that people would think that men should be so weak, but we don’t live in Saudi Arabia; there, apparently, they are; and it’s engrained into them in their culture. We just have the same idea only more moderate; here it’s fine to see not just a woman’s face, but her hair as well, and more besides, but most tend to draw the line at some point of skimpy clothing in public. Nudists, ofcourse, go beyond even this, although generally only in certain settings (at the very least nudists tend to avoid being nude where it’s not legal to do so).

I would argue that the issue of sexuality is fairly similar, with the one caveat that children and pregnancy, STDs and STIs are also factors there. In any case, my point stands; I think that with enough dialogue people will realize that the advantages to being more liberal, both clothing wise and sexuality wise, while at the same time educating ourselves more so that we avoid the mistakes that makes of some such puritans, will be better for everyone.

My first nude experience was when I was younger

finnish-nudistsMy first nude experience was when I was younger and very much by accident. I went to a beach with a very long coastline on the more isolated end.
I didn’t see anyone around and I knew that nudism was tolerated so I completely disrobed and laid completely exposed in the sun. I saw a topless woman approaching and quickly covered up – being nude outside was completely natural, being nude in front of others was not. She smiled as she walked by and I just blushed – I was so prudish about public nudity that even seeing others in a state of undress made me uncomfortable. When she was out of site, I once again uncovered and decided I wanted to go for a swim. I have been an avid swimmer, a life gaurd in fact, so I decided to swim further down the coast and come back. Swimming nude was quite liberating! I did that and went past many of the crowded parts of the beach. After a while the current was too strong to turn back and I realized I had only one option, to walk back on the beach.
I must say that was one of the most uncomfortable moments of my life. I walked out of the water, covering my genitals with my hands. As I came to shore, I noticed that everyone was naked and seemed so natural. I still covered up, but was getting a little more comfortable with myself.Although I was very athletic and fit, I had always been sensitive about the size of my penis and all my pubic hair but when I saw people of all shapes, sizes and ages I realized that I was fine however I was. I let go, literally, and was free. It was quite a walk back. Being nude where everyone was nude was natural but I soon I had a new challenge. Although nudity was tolerated everyone on the beach, the most popular section was where almost everyone wore bathing suits- toplessness was common but I saw only one completely nude person.
Aside from that, it was very crowded. I had no choice but to keep on going and I continued walking nude. People looked at me – I was probably the only nude person they had seen for a while – but I kept on going. It is ackward being nude in front of others when they are not but I learned to deal with it. When I finally reached my clothes, I was a nudist for life.
When I went back to my apartment with my friends, male and female, I told them about my experience. I told them too how good it felt and asked if they minded if I went nude in our apartment, they did not. Since then I spend as much of my time nude as possible and don’t care whose looking.
