Gunnison Beach – 6 A.M.I grew up in a home where nudity was no huge deal.

We occasionally would swim bare in our fairly private backyard, and nudity in the house was, although not encouraged, certainly not frowned on either.

As an adult there was never much chance to revisit those carefree moments of childhood. I traveled a good bit with my work and learned of the approved nude beach at Sandy Hook, NJ.

Eventually I was in that place immediately and took the opportunity to go to the shore before starting my work day. I got to the beach sometime around 6 a.m. and the shore was abandoned and cold. I sat in my clothing on the sand and watched the sun come up. About 7:30 it got warm enough to take my clothing away and enjoy the sun, the sound of the surf and the wind. By then a couple of early risers had arrived at the seashore, but it was still largely abandoned. I just had an hour or so on the seashore before I needed to begin my day.

I enjoyed the sensation of being nude in nature so much that I went back to the beach after my appointments were completed and enjoyed the remainder of the day on the much more crowded beach, watching the sun go down before I left. At no time did I feel uncomfortable being bare in the business of other nude folks. Possibly becoming a little used to it in the morning before the crowds came helped a bit, but I believe that should you approach nudism from the right standpoint it is not a sexually charged experience and so there is really nothing to be uncomfortable about. When you haven’t attempted it yet, I’d encourage you to give it a try. Its absolutely amazing.

I have since been back to the shore many times and joined a nonlanded club where we have been able to relish day trips to landed clubs in the area. It’s all amazing but my favorite place continues to be the beach with its surf and sand!

Waited Too Long

My whole adult life thus far has been subjected to rules designed to prevent embarrassment to the “business.” I’ve needed to play by everyone else’s rules. Well for the first time I decided to take my first step of “liberty” and took a trip to Haulover Beach. WOW! What a sense relief! To be there, with all those beautiful people who had no care what others thought of them…and there I was with them. How wonderful it was to feel the sun on my entire body. Swimming in the ocean with no confinement of a swimsuit. So gratifying. I can not wait for my next visit. Unfortunately, here in Miami there are not any clothes discretionary communities, so I’m planning a vacation to one in Central Florida. I can’t wait.

First time at nudist camp!

I was told about bare camp. Was interested! Didn’t go the very first year but the next I did go. I joined AANR the very next week and this year became an Associate member! I appreciate it so much that I do proudly say I’m a nudist!

The possibility of visiting a nudist club fell into my lap out of the blue. In those days I was dating my wife Claudia, but we had not taken a step forward. We were merely building up the camaraderie in . Shortly we got acquainted, then her mom mom asked me if I would like to join her and Claudia over the weekend at a bare resort. I found myself saying YES.All she advised me was to feel friendly with everyone.

The next Saturday morning we were on our way. When we reached there, all I can say it was a bare woods, but very well maintained.

Soon they both got there, clothes away as if it was normal routine. I also had to take off. I was shy a bit, but to my astonishment no one troubled to look at me. Claudia’s mother, seeing me hesitating a bit, offered to show me the resort. I was surprised to see naked ladies/ women playing volleyball, other sports and swimming with nude men. Not only this but men taking pictures of their relatives in nude. This made me feel comfortable.

All I can say is it was a best weekend I ever had. I felt healthy, and noticed that I ‘d developed more assurance. Now My wife and I are regular members of that resort. We have made many friends there. I suggest to all or any individuals all over the world take a break and provide your life an opportunity to change.

Finest auto ride ever

I consider my first time experience to be when my(then future) wife and I were taking a road trip to Canada. It turned out to be a delightful day. My wife was driving the car and we had the windows down. We were both merely enjoying the ride along with the beautiful landscape that was passing by and I began to get the feeling that I was wearing too much clothes so I kicked off my shoes and got out of my shirt.

We drove along for a little while more and I started easing my pants away. My wife looked at me and asked, “what are you doing?” I told her I was becoming comfy.

It was excellent! My wife thought I was insane. I believe she still does but she has stuck with me for nearly 20 years.

Now I recognize that wasn’t a group nudist encounter but it was the first time that I declared myself a man who likes to be naked. I do have to also include that that car ride was the best memory I have of that excursion.
