Here are the short answers to the valid questions proposed in the below post.
1. Why did you decide to be a nudist?
I do not remember having decided, nudism felt normal on beaches as other people were naked, then things went naturally as I felt great naked.
2. How has nudism changed your life?
Nudism is a lifestyle. It may change the relationship with friends and family when you’re telling them you are a nudist and/or stay naked with them. Beyond this, it’s healthy and you feel much much better naked than clothed when the weather permits. Overall, it has not really changed my life at the exception of choices of places to go on holiday to favor naturist destinations.
3. What are the benefits and drawbacks of being a nudist?
Benefits are numerous: health (mental and physical), happiness, no body shame, acceptance of differences, respect, light packing when going holiday, here are some posts on the benefits: Newbies guide du Nudism, Benefits of social nudity, Nudity provides health benefits.
As for the drawbacks, I see only one: people may see you as a weirdo and may turn away from you, as unfortunately nudism is often associated with sexuality. But this requires some calm explanation and for this the web site of the AANR or the INF are helpful.
4. If there is one thing you want to tell people about the nudist lifestyle, what is it?
Trying is believing. Go to a club and try it for a day or two. You will discover something unique and liberating.
