"Sure, some people might believe they are offended by nude bathers,
but, if you never encounter anything that offends you in your
community, you are not living in a free society."
- Corky Stanton
Step 1: Start at Home
Sounds simple, but if you aren't
comfortable being nude around the house, you probably won't be
comfortable being nude around others. No big deal. Just try not to be
so compulsive about getting dressed when you don't need to be. If you
aren't going anywhere, stay nude after bathing. If you aren't already
doing it, start sleeping in the nude. Remove your clothes as casually
as you remove your shoes. Being nude is the ultimate in casual dress,
Gradually "let down your guard"
around your spouse and kids, and let them feel at ease about doing
likewise. If you have a private enough back yard or pool, try
skinny-dipping or sunning at off times until you feel comfortable
doing it on a regular basis. Don't worry about the neighbors. If they
invade your privacy, make nothing of it. If it seems normal to you,
they will accept it as part of the package and will more likely
question their own problem with it, rather than make a big deal of it.
Why not just stop there? For many,
that's as far as they go. In a way, their walls and fences become
their more comfortable, roomier clothes. Families members have fewer
barriers between them, and home becomes a place where one's appearance
is unconditionally accepted. Everyone can just be themselves.
But many of us feel constrained being
"closet nudists". Like everyone else, we want who we are, what we look
like, and what we do, to be accepted by others. In return, we don't
mind extending the same courtesy.
The (not so)
Big Step With Nudism
You have two main choices for your
first experience. Visit a public nude beach, or a private park/resort.
Both have advantages and disadvantages. An accepted nude beach usually
is usually secluded, offers anonymity, and requires no commitment.
Beachgoers usually stay to themselves, which can be either an
advantage or disadvantage. The downside is there aren't many worry
free, legal, nude beaches in the US and many other parts of the world.
Private parks have the advantage of being protected environments where
being nude within the park is unquestionably legal and safe. Since
these establishments are privately owned, management has full
authority to refuse to admit, or to ask anyone to leave, as they see
fit. This gives people a powerful incentive to behave properly, lest
that visit be their last. You might initially feel like feel like a
stranger amongst friends, but the barriers to getting to know people
there are much lower than you'd expect. You'll soon feel more at home
than you would in a similar "textile" (clothed) situation.
