We occasionally would swim naked in our pretty private backyard, and nudity in the house was, although not encouraged, certainly not frowned on either.
As an adult there was never much opportunity to revisit those carefree moments of childhood. I traveled a good bit with my work and learned of the sanctioned nude beach at Sandy Hook, NJ.
Eventually I was in that place immediately and took the chance to go to the beach before starting my work day. I got to the shore sometime around 6 a.m. and the shore was deserted and cold. I sat in my garments on the sand and watched the sun come up. About 7:30 it got warm enough to take my clothes off and appreciate the sun, the sound of the surf and the wind. By then several early risers had arrived at the beach, but it was still mostly abandoned. I only had an hour or so on the shore before I needed to begin my day.
I appreciated the sensation of being naked in nature so much that I went back to the seashore after my appointments were completed and enjoyed the rest of the day on the considerably more busy beach, watching the sun go down before I left. At no time did I feel uncomfortable being bare in the organization of other nude folks. Maybe becoming a bit used to it in the morning before the crowds came helped a bit, but I believe that in case you approach nudism from the correct perspective it isn’t a sexually charged experience and so there’s really nothing to be uncomfortable about. If you haven’t attempted it yet, I’d encourage you to give it a try. Its absolutely amazing.
I’ve since been back to the beach many times and joined a nonlanded club where we have been able to enjoy day trips to landed clubs in the region. It’s all great but my favorite place continues to be the beach with its surf and sand!
Waited Too Long
My entire adult life thus far has been subjected to rules made to stop embarrassment to the “firm.” I have needed to play by everyone else’s rules. Well for the very first time I decided to take my first step of “independence” and took a trip to Haulover Beach. WOW! What a awareness alleviation! To be there, with all those amazing 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 whole body. Swimming in the ocean without the confinement of a swimsuit. So pleasurable. I can’t wait for my next visit. Unfortunately, here in Miami there aren’t any clothing discretionary communities, so I’m planning a holiday to one in Central Florida. I can’t wait. I am so thrilled with my new found life.
First time at nudist camp!
http://x-nudism.com was told about naked camp. Was interested! Did not go the very first year but the next I did go. What a freeing experience! 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 am a nudist!
The chance of visiting a nudist club fell into my lap unexpectedly. In those days I was dating my wife Claudia, but we’d not taken a step forward. We were only building up the friendship in those days. Afterward out of a blue I was having tea at her place, when her mother entered. Shortly we got acquainted, then her mom mom asked me if I want to join her and Claudia over the weekend at a bare resort. I found myself saying YES.All she counseled 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 forest, but very well preserved.
Soon they both got there, clothes off as if it was ordinary routine. I too needed to take off. I was shy a bit, but to my amazement 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 nude ladies/ women playing volleyball, other sports and swimming with nude guys. Not only this but guys taking photographs of their relatives in nude. This made me feel comfortable.
All I can declare is it was a best weekend I ever had. I felt healthy, and noticed that I had developed more self-assurance. Now My wife and I are regular members of that resort. We’ve made many friends there. I propose to any or all individuals around the globe take a break and give your own life a chance to transform.

Finest car ride ever
I consider my first time encounter to be when my(then future) wife and I were taking a road trip to Canada. It was in 1989 and we were driving up Interstate 81 through New York. It was a delightful day. My wife was driving the car and we had the windows down. We were both simply enjoying the ride and also the attractive landscape that was passing by and I started to get the sensation 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 longer and I began slipping my trousers away. My wife looked at me and asked, “what are you doing?” I told her I was becoming cozy. Not long after that I slipped out of my undies, and was cruising up Interstate 81 naked as a Jay bird.
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 experience but it was the very first time I declared myself a man who likes to be nude. I do have to also include that that car ride was the very best memory I have of that trip.
