As I read in this forum, there are many who have been comfortable with nudity since childhood.
That was certainly not possible for me in the very traditional dwelling in which I was raised. I do recall quite vividly my first encounter. When I was 13, our family was trailor camping in http://videonudism.com/nudism/beach-in-swingers.php in the south of England. It was a wonderful morning and I was up before anyone else. It turned out to be a wonderful feeling! Regrettably, it was not an encounter I could repeat easily. As I grew through my teen years, there was no possibility of being nude at home or in the back yard.
I had to be met wearing brief panties and I’d sometimes lie on a towel in the yard.
My mom was not thrilled, but did not say too much. Some years later, I was married and I remember with great fondness a day when my youthful bride and I walked naked in a field. It was a wonderful feeling of independence, but not one which has been repeated frequently. Over time, I’ve seen Wreck Beach when I was visiting Vancouver. There http://nudenudist.com found people quite receptive and taking. Unlike many I have read about in this newsgroup, I did not have any hesitation about taking off my clothing with strangers. It was a very freeing experience. I recall once lying across a log from a young woman and a few young men who were having a dialog.
They were absolutely ordinary in the things they discussed although they and I were naked. I thought what a great sense of self confidence each individual showed, especially the young woman. Maybe that’s what many individuals lack, the self confidence and positive self image to be themselves even when they’re clothed. My kids are grown now so my wife is far more accepting of my being naked round the home and in the yard. She grins at me and comprehends that when I have been able to lie in the sun nude for an hour or so, I’m so a whole lot more relaxed. What this means is that it’s o.k. for me to be naked and have no tan lines.
She doesn’t particularly share my excitement. For those who are readily able to be naked and free at home, the beach or the club, appreciate that freedom. Not all people can experience that degree of freedom and enjoy being comfortable within their own skin, whether they are nude alone or with others.
