Nudist idea #21: Invite your friends to undress when coming to your place

Unless everyone knows you are a nudist and expect you to be naked when coming to your place, this is not an easy one! However, it’s a very pleasant one, as you can be yourself, naked, even if your friends are not embracing a naked status.

Bringing non nudists in a nudist setting is, I believe, even more pleasant, as it enriches their own experience and enlarges our nudist circle of friends. Although the first step is to to share to your friends that you are a nudist, and we went through some ideas on how to do this, like, the Nudist idea #7: Leave your #Naturist Magazines on your Coffee Table. Once they know, then ask if they would like to share some nude time.

If so, you can start at home or at your local club. I tend to prefer the local club, as it provides a total naturist experience with people who are used to welcome newbies. Once this step is over, you can propose that they join you naked at your place and therefore get naked on arrival if you have invited them for a moment at your place. Nudism is a wonderful lifestyle, as nudists know it. For sure, we cannot be naked every single minute, but the more, the merrier, and inviting your friends to drop their clothes off is a great way to increase nude time!

Time to grow up – nudism is normal and natural!

I find it hard to react with nothing other than hilarity that people are getting off on the idea of naked bodies, their mental capacity often stuck at age 14 regardless of however many years they’ve lived on this earth. ‘Tee hee hee…it’s a willy‘ [insert alternative pet name for penis here] shrieks some girls […]

Nudist idea #16: Live entirely naked for 24 hours

A great way to appreciate nudist living is to commit to living as much as possible naked. One way to get more into it is to commit to spending a full day and a full night entirely naked.

Image result for having a nudist breakfastLet’s say you wake up on a Saturday morning at 8AM, commit to not wear any clothes until the next morning! If you commit to doing this at your local nudist club, it will be much easier that if you commit to doing this at home or in a public place. However, you can plan it ahead!

Plan to spend a full week-end at your local nudist club one summer. Arrive early on the Saturday or even on the Friday evening and leave all your clothes at home (if you can drive naked) or in your car, until the end of the week-end. Try to commit to this, even the evening is a little bit chilly. If it’s the case, plan to stay in your bungalow or tent until the temperature gets warmer.

One thing you will notice over time will be you forget you are naked. Your nudity will become so normal, wearing any piece of clothing will feel strange on your skin. Nudity will become so comfortable you will want not only to spend 24 hours naked, but the whole week-end and probably more. This will be the sign that nudism has really sunken into your skin.

Nudist idea #8: Organize a naked dinner

Image result for naked restaurantInviting some friends for a dinner? Why not inviting some nudist friends and have a naked dinner? You can also grab the opportunity to invite non-nudist friends and let them know there will be some nudists at the dinner and if they do not mind, this will be a clothing optional dinner!

Nudist dinners are fun. The first good thing is that you do not have to care of what to wear. No formal suit, just your birthday one! Of course, you can always wear some nice jewelery, it’s a dinner and a perfect occasion to “overdress”!

The second thing with is great about naked dinner parties is they are much more relaxed than clothed ones. By being naked, we know it will be a laid-back, cool and joyful moment among nudist friends.

Of course, if there are non nudist to the dinner you can propose that they get naked or stay clothed. Your naked dinner is a clothing optional one. However, there is good chance if your clothed friends accepted the dinner that they will undress sooner than later. I notices that it’s always more uncomfortable to stay clothed in the middle of naked people than the opposite. Surely because naked people are comfortable in being naked.

Image result for dine nakedOn the organization, prepare towels for your guest, as they may not think of bringing one, particularly if they are coming dressed and undress at your place (hint: if you are invited to a naked party, leave your place naked and drive to your friends if you can park close). You can also decide on the menu based on Naked Food Magazine for instance, with naked appetizers, naked entrees and naked deserts (in this context, naked means new authentic kind and enlightened diet, but hey, it’s naked like our guests).

Overall, have fun. It will be a memorable experience, and I’m pretty sure you will look forward to organizing others. Share you experience and comments below and remember to Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!

When nudity becomes the new normal

The day you join a nudist resort, club or beach, you enter a new world of freedom and respect. However, there’s something you may not know yet: nudity is about to become your new normal. Let me explain what I mean by new normal.

Becoming a nudist

A lot of first time nudists will eventually become lifetime nudists. Every nudist will talk about this wonderful feeling of freedom, as soon you understand nobody cares about how you look. Nudity becomes therefore an accepted state. Generally, this is when you start to stop thinking about being naked. You just are enjoying the moment, without clothes.

Of course, time will come when you need to get dressed again. A certain level of sadness will fill you, as you leave this wonderful state of freedom. Rapidly, if weather and security allow, you will feel the need to get naked again. This could be your home, your garden or any place that accepts your nudity.

After a couple of days or weeks, you will feel immensely better entirely naked than with any form of clothing, even light and small. This is the moment I call the new normal. Your nudity will feel natural, simple, a real no-brainer. Up to a point that you will feel the need to share this with your friends and family. This is also the moment when you will want to have some books on naturism to know more, to subscribe to the magazine of your local naturist federation and leave them on your coffee table, or to just ask your friends to join you in your naturist life.

The New Normal

And your new normal will be the beginning of a wonderful naturist life. Naturism is, IMHO, the most wonderful lifestyle. The levels of freedom, friendship and simplicity are just unmatched.

The only caveat is naturists are still a minority and nudism is not widely accepted. However, it’s growing with movements like Free the Nipple or associations like APNEL, more and more people are exposed to non sexual nudity. It may need another century to be able to chose nudity as a possible clothing option, but I hope we will get there and the next generations can freely chose to be naked whenever and wherever they want.

Try nudism and you will discover a new world, where nudity will soon become your new normal.

What’s the difference? (being naked or not)

I’m often asked the question: but what’s the difference being naked or wearing just a swimsuit for instance? And this question came back to mind as I was taking off my short during one of my morning jog, to continue naked.

At that precise moment, I felt at the same time very good and my true self, and this was exactly the answer to the “what’s the difference question”. However, it’s difficult to explain to a non naturist, what does “very good” mean? Can’t you feel very good clothed? Yes, probably. So, in order to explain what’s the difference, I will take a couple of examples that explain it.

Warm and inviting as a fireplace in winter

Imagine you spend a couple of hours outside in the cold. You are well dressed, it’s snowing and the cold bites you. While you like winter, you start thinking about the fire and a hot chocolate/coffee/tea in front of the fireplace.

The moment to come back home arrives. You enter the house, take your jacket, gloves and boots off, and head to the lounge, where logs burn in the fireplace. The warmth of the fire is incredibly pleasant. You feel “very good”!

If you’ve lived in a cold country in winter, you’ve probably experienced this feeling. This is the exact same “very good” I felt when I took my short off and got naked. It’s a subtle alas !

Refreshing and relaxing as a swimming pool in summer

Imagine your spend a couple of hours outside in the hot summer day of a tropical country. You are lightly dressed to protect you from the sun. While you like summer, you start thinking about the swimming pool and to dive into it.

The moment to come back home arrives. You enter the garden, take your t-shirt, short and shoes off and dive into the swimming pool. The water is at the perfect refreshing temperature.  You feel “very good”!

If you’ve spend time in a warm country in summer, you’ve probably experienced this feels. This is the exact same “very good” I felt when I took my short off and got naked. It’s a subtle alas !

No shame, just no clothes

Naturism is about feeling good in your birthday suit, and this piece of clothes, how small it may be, makes whole the difference. It’s subtle, it may be seen as ridiculous, but this is what a naturist feels between wearing something and being naked.

A lot has been written of the various benefits of naturism, including many posts on this blog dedicated to naturism. And the first reason for me and for many naturists I know has always been: if feels good! And yes, a small piece of clothes makes all the difference!

What needs to change for naturism to be accepted

As naturists, we feel good if not better while naked. Many of us would like to be able to be naked more frequently not facing negative consequences. For this, we need to continue, if not increase, to tell the naturism story and its many benefits. However, I was asking myself the question: what needs to change for naturism to be accepted? Here are some answers I found:

  • De-sexualizing nudity. For many, nudity is equal to sex. Society is actually promoting this idea in ads or movies. Most of the time, the vision of a naked or half naked body leads to sexual intercourse. It’s therefore easy to link the two together. However, if we were to see in ads or movies naked people living there normal lives, then the idea of nudity outside of sexuality will start to spread. We can even used blurred genitals until people get used to the idea of non sexual nudity.
  • Encouraging kids to stay naked. How many times do you see a young kid on the beach that takes his or her bathing suit off, being chastized by his or her mother or father? For most, if not all, kids, nudity is totally normal and healthy, as they do not have this link to sexuality yet. This nudity should be encouraged not banned, through parent education.
  • Explaining body transformation to teenagers in a simple way. When puberty kicks in, even naturist kids tend to get dressed as they do not feel that comfortable with their body. We, as caring adults, should explain that what they feel is natural, and if they want to get dressed or get naked, they have the freedom to chose. If they feel sexual desire, it’s entirely natural, however, they need to unlink nudity and sex, which are two totally different things.
  • Decriminalizing non sexual nudity. if nudity is more accepted after being more exposed to non sexual nudity, they laws should be enacted to let people get naked in social public space as long as their attitude is not sexually oriented. I know this may be controversial, but if, for instance, you ask most hikers what they think about naked hiking, they find it Ok for a big majority (read Naked Hiking to learn more about this).
  • Being naked with friends and family. Big changes starts with small decisions. Do your friends and family know you are a naturist? Are you naked with them? Do you encourage them to embrace naturism? You need to come out and get more naked time with your friends and family. Of course, that may be tough the first time. Some people may find you weird. With all the content that exists on the web about the benefits of naturism, it’s eay to have a leaflet ready to hand over.
  • Practicing and promoting naked activities. Hiking naked, practicing naked yoga or participation to World Naked Bike Ride will contribute to show people that naked people are harmless, they just want to practice their preferred activities naked.
  • Joining a naturist association and or club. To promote its activities, an association needs members. By becoming a member of your country naturist association (AANR in the US, FFN in France, for instance or APNEL to promote naturism in liberty), you will help them to promote naturism, have more naturist places and have changes in legislation to allow more legal acceptance. And if you can and have time, act with them, dedicate some energy to help promote naturism.

Naturism is a wonderful lifestyle that can only be appreciated when tested. It’s always very difficult to explain to non naturists the many benefits of naturism. Of course, intellectually people will understand and accept (or not). But the real eye opener is when you undress totally first alone, then with other naturists. It seems a long way before naturism gets widespread acceptance, however, it’s just by continuing promoting it that it will be more and more accepted until one day, hopefully, it will just be allowed anywhere as one of the many clothing options.

Beyond burkinis: why science suggests ALL clothes should be banned

All nudists need to dress to carry some errands like shopping in the nearest mall for instance, as nudity may, unfortunately, not been allowed. However, most nudists agree that if they could stay naked whenever and wherever they wanted, that what they would chose. In this article of The Guardian, the author suggests that clothes should be banned and provides some good reasons for this:

  • Clothes do more harm than good: clothes have been used as political tools. Look at the difference between cheap and expensive clothing, or perceived unappropriate or appropriate clothes. Clothes often defines the perception people have of a person, without looking beyond. What about the famous “dress code” that obliges you to wear something you may not be comfortable with?
  • Environmental damages due to washing. Soap and detergents are bad for nature. No clothes mean no washing.
  • Body shaming ends. If everybody is naked, flaws are all visible and body shaming is much more difficult when nobody’s perfect…

There could be a ton of other reasons, as we have seen in the 10 reasons why I am a nudist and you should be too. Naturism is one of the best lifestyles, if not the best, as long as temperature and security allows it. If you are not a naturist yes, give it a try, find other good reasons while browsing through this blog and others.
