Still naked? A personal story of a #ProudNudist

Here’s a simple personal story about nudism, respect and fun.

A couple of weeks away, I was working from home. After the alarm rang, I woke up and went to the kitchen to prepare the breakfast, as I usually do. Sleeping naked, I prepare and have breakfast nude, always. Then, with the kid having left early for school, and while my wife was getting prepared to go to work, I went running into the woods, dropping my pareo quickly to enjoy a naked jog. Forty five minutes later, I was back, alone at home for my morning meditation. You guessed, still naked.

Once done, showered, and equipped with a good cup of green tea, it was barely eight and I was ready for a long working day, facing a pile of work, and tons of calls. Morning went through like a breeze and I prepared a quick lunch thay I enjoyed on the terrace, before going back to work, until the kids came back from school. I overlooked their homework then left them to play and went back to finish some work for the day. Since the previous day, I had not worn clothing, except for my light pareo at the start of my morning run. I was almost done with my work when my wife came home. She entered my home office, greeted me with a kiss, looked at me and asked : « Still naked? »

Not that she’s not used to see me naked as I barely wear clothes at home and strip bare as soon as I can!

I looked at here and answered: « Yes. Why? »

She shrugged and left my home office saying: « it always feel weird, but as long as you are happy, I am too. »

And this made my day. I worked another half an hour while she took care of the kids and checked for the second time their homework. I then went back to the kitchen to prepare dinner (you guess I like cooking), while the kids were setting up the table. We had a nice family dinner altogether sharing our main events for the day. I was naked, the rest of the family was clothed, and everybody was happy and enjoying the moment spent together.

The rest of the evening, everybody went carrying their own activities, the kids playing in their room, me writing this post, my wife preparing her next workday.

The feeling of staying naked a whole day, just carrying your daily activities is just normal. You are living a normal live in your normal nude state, without thinking about it. The only time I thought about it was when my wife asked her « still naked? » question. I came to realize I did not dress for the whole day, otherwise nakedness being a complete normal almost unconscious state, I may have not thought about it.

I even do not think about it when the rest of the family is clothed and I am naked. Everybody has come to accept and respect my nudity, and they share it in the sun as soon as the temperature permits. Then we move from a mixed family to a nudist family, but that’s another story.

Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love

 

The 3 states of nudity – On becoming a nudist

As I am more often than not entirely naked at home, nudity has become a natural state, up to a point that I do not think about it. However, while hiking naked in the forest a while back, I came to think about my journey to nudism and without going into too deep a reflection on nudism, I came to realize there are 3 states of nudity that you encounter on your journey of becoming a nudist. Let’s go through them together, as it may enlighten you if you are not a nudist yet, and make you realize that becoming one is nothing special than just embracing nudity for what it is: a natural state!

Home Nudist

You become a home nudist when you can walk around your house entirely naked. At the beginning, you just walk from your bathroom to your bedroom, eventually grabbing a cup of coffee from the kitchen. Then, you will carry some activities, like cooking, vacuuming or watching TV. You may even go out in the garden, if you have one.

However, during all those activities, you realize you are naked. You may still feel some shame: « what if somebody was seeing me? » you may ask yourself. You are on the first state of nudity: you realize you are naked! Don’t get me wrong here, being naked feels good at that stage, you just realize you are naked, that’s just it. Nothing wrong or right about being naked, it’s just a conscious state.

Beach Nudist

For most people, the first encounter with social nudity is at the clothing-optional beach. You hesitate the first time you get naked on the beach. You feel everybody will look at you. Sometimes, you may even not get entirely naked or wrap a towel around your waist. « Who knows what can happen while I’m naked? « you may ask yourself (particularly if you are a man and think about a potential erection).

However, quickly, you will realize everybody is naked around you. Nobody watches you, everybody carries their activities entirely naked with no shame and no questions. You are entering the second state of nudity: you realize others are naked too! Once again, nothing wrong or right here. You are not judging others as others are not judging you, you are naked and feel good, and others are naked and feels good. However, you are still in a conscious state of nudity.

Resort Nudist

Then, one day, you go to a clothing-optional or nudist resort. You feel anxious and excited at the same time, feel some tension while registering, but are greeted with a smile and made comfortable. After having settled down, you get naked, wrap a towel around your waist and go to the swimming pool. It’s likely you will meet other nudists in the pool and potentially being pulled into a volley ball game or a walk around the premises, or any other activities done entirely naked with your new friends.

Before you realize what is happening, you will have spent a very good time, chatting, walking, playing, with people entirely naked, like yourselves. You are entering the third state of nudity: you do not think about being naked, you just feel good! You are now in an unconscious state of nudity, you feel good and do not think about being naked. When you meet others, you do not think of them being naked, they are just human beings, you do not think about them as naked persons, but as persons.

In the third state of nudity, you do not realize you are naked, you are just like you are and it feels comfortable. This is up to a point that, if you’re home and somebody rings the doorbell, you may open the door naked, or you want to fetch mail and you go to your letter box entirely naked, with potentially all neighbors being able to see you. And this is where, some nudists, like myself, are frustrated by laws that forbid us to be naked when and where we want, not because we are exhibitionists, just because nudity is a normal and natural state for us.

This is the state I am in almost every time I am naked, should it be at home, at the beach, at a nudist resort or on a hiking trail, or like now, while typing this post on my computer. While I cannot explain why nudity feels so good, I  embraced nudism years ago now and it just feels great to me. So, get naked, stay naked, live naked, and share the naked love with friends and family. Nude is not lewd, it’s awesome!
