“I understand as a group have never been to a clothing optional area,” I said. “I understand you are inquisitive about it, so I’d like to offer you a lesson in social nudity. I want to describe to you what social nudity is all about.
As I stood there all eyes were now on me and I said, “First of all it is a non sexual encounter, and the very first thing you have to know is that people may looks at first. It is human nature.”
I turned around to be sure that everyone could see, and I mentioned, “Now that you’ve all “checked me out”, I ask you to do this to make a point. It demonstrates you that I know you’re looking and that I’m not ashamed or embarrassed and it lets you know that you’re natural tendency to look at it’s not incorrect, not nasty and it is not unacceptable to me.”
I then entered the water, and introduced myself to each of the folks. The tension eased, and everyone relaxed and we discussed for many hours about all issues from social nudity to physics to great movies, professions, school and families. They were a fantastic 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 profession was. All were relaxed, no one else got naked, but the social interaction was amazing.
By 6pm we had all been in the pool for at least 4 hours and they had 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 collect their things I asked this question, “OK, now everyone, how a number of you even remember that I am naked?”
I could see the light go on in their eyes as they realized just what it was all about. I know some of them are going to be back to Faywood Hot Springs and I understand they will not be wearing clothing this time.

First time experience 🙂
So I’m a 17 year man from Australia, I’ve consistently appreciated being http://macdollars.net by myself and had dream of going to the neighborhood nude beach with some partners, male and female. Today I finally got the chance; we walked down to the shore and continued on to the nudist half of the shore, we subsequently stripped off and went for a swim. It felt so natural to be naked socially.
After our swim we lay on the seashore and dried off then went for a walk and enjoyed the view; we’ve now determined as a mixed group of friends it’s going to be a regular practice for our pals. Definitely going to happen more in the not too distant future.
My wife Rose and I are newly weds in our mid 50s. Throughout our own lives we skinny dipped as children and adolescents, but never had the ability to do this as adults in our previous marriages. Last summer, just before we got married, we started appreciating going in the pool naked. We sat on the veranda to dry off after getting out letting our skin bask in the sunshine. What a great feeling.
Not long after this, we began doing lawn work, nude, in the back yard where the block fence gave us some privacy. We have a neighbor woman who likes to poke her head over the fence to say hello when she hears us in the back yard (I think which will cease after the very first time she sees us naked). Now we spend lots of time naked in the back yard and we should since we have done so much work back there.
A few months ago we were seeing a program on http://skinnudist.com about the RV lifestyle. It caught our attention because we travel around in a 25 foot travel trailer. One of the items in the application was Clothes-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 implying it would be enjoyable to discover a Clothes-Discretionary campground and go see what it is all about.
During the next few weeks I spent a lot of time searching the web for Clothing-Optional campgrounds. There are not many in Arizona, in fact there are not many nudist organizations in Arizona, period. I located one near Phoenix, Shangri la Ranch, which advertises as a family oriented nudist camp. I did even more research on Shangri la Ranch and discovered it’s a great facility and comes highly recommended by posters on various nude diversion forums. I named the office at Shangri la Ranch and clarified my lovely wife and I’d like to see for a weekend and it’d be our first time at a nudist resort. They were more than happy to accommodate us, even placing 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 naked 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 nice couples who were excited to meet us and observed our first time with us.
Rose and I can scarcely wait to really go back.
I learned of another nudist resort that is highly recommended not too far from us that we’ll be heading to perhaps in November. Terra Cotta Inn in Palm Springs. Tom and Mary Clare seem to be exceptional hosts and also the inn is just that which we need.
I expect Rose and I become regulars at Shangri la Ranch and Terra Cotta Inn. We are keeping our eyes and ears sharp for additional places to visit.
We’re going to adore nudism, Clothes-Optional and no clothes resorts and activities.
See you about. We merely joined AANR yesterday!

Wow. I did it.
I’d learned of a bare event at a closeby gymnasium. It was sponsored by a local nudist club which leased the facility for an evening monthly or so. I’d become determined to visit the event having consistently been intrigued by nudism but never trying it. I was as nervous as I really could get worrying about how I’d “react” but I was committed. I drove around to the health club that Saturday evening and sat in the car only eyeing the spot for a great 10 minutes. I was not about to chicken out. I went in, paid my admission fee and headed for the locker room. I immediately figured out that everything was co-ed.
We continue releasing stories shared by our female subscribers – young nudist girls who make it to the nude beach for the first time

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 fast dip in the pool and then went to the sauna and hot tub. I was feeling very comfy nude. This was excellent. I was hooked on nudism. Everyone was so friendly and open. I got involved in the volleyball game. Here I was playing co ed naked volleyball. I was totally hooked. This was amazing. I remained until the occasion was over appreciating the entire experience. 15 years after I’m still at it. A nudist for life.
18 Years ago I went to a nude beach for the 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 would attempt it outside, but then one day I went to the shore out of interest. I did not go there to go nude, but after speaking to one regular there I found myself taking my suit away and going skinny dipping!
Wow! What a sense it was swimming in the ocean with no swimsuit! I started coming back up until the shore I went to got raided. I was lucky I didn’t get found, but after the beach lost its spunk, and single men began to be the norm offsetting the balance of women and men.
I have to say that did not prevent me from becoming a naturist as I joined a landed club nearby and met loads of friends while at it and the most important thing is that it wasn’t sexual being round precisely the same pictures that Playboy and porn make degrading just in real life.
I even learned later 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 mother who will not understand about this, but I still sleep nude 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 is no going back for me!
