As I read in this newsgroup, there are many who have been comfortable with nudity since youth.
That was definitely not possible for me in the quite traditional dwelling in which I was raised. I do recall quite vividly my first experience. When I was 13, our family was trailor camping in a forest in the south of England. It turned out to be a lovely morning and I was up before anyone else. I stepped outside in the dewy morning in my pajamas and discovered a path leading away into the woods. The temptation was too great. Once I was out of sight, I took off all my clothing and ran naked through the forest. It turned out to be a fabulous feeling!
Unfortunately, it was not an encounter I really could duplicate easily. As I grew through my teen years, there was no possibility of being naked at home or in the back yard.
I had to be met wearing brief panties and I would sometimes lie on a towel in the yard. My mom wasn’t thrilled, but did not say too much. Some years afterwards, I was married and I recall with great fondness a time when my youthful bride and I walked naked in a field. It turned out to be a great feeling of freedom, but not one which has been repeated often. Over time, I’ve visited Wreck Beach once I was visiting Vancouver. There I found people very receptive and taking. Unlike many I have read around in this forum, http://x-officer.com didn’t have some hesitation about taking off my clothes with strangers. It was a very freeing experience. I remember once lying across a log from a young woman and a couple of young men who were having a dialog.
They were completely standard in the things they discussed although they and I were naked. I thought what a great awareness of self confidence each individual revealed, notably the young woman. Perhaps that is what a lot of people lack, the self confidence and positive self image to be themselves even when they’re clothed. My children are grown now so my wife is a whole lot more accepting of my being nude around the house and in the lawn. She grins at me and recognizes that when I have really been able to lie in the sun nude for an hour or so, I’m so much more relaxed. She says, “If this is what it takes for you to be relaxed, I am all for http://wnude.com/nudist-teens.html . This implies that it is o.k. for me to be nude and have no tan lines.
She doesn’t especially share my enthusiasm. For those who are easily able to be naked and free at home, the beach or the club, appreciate that liberty. Not all people can experience that degree of freedom and enjoy being comfortable in their particular skin, whether they’re nude alone or with others.
