Ally's First-Time Nudist Experience
||I love being nude, especially outdoors. Years ago, and to this day, I did not get dressed immediately after my shower. If it was summer and fan was blowing it felt even better to ‘air dry’. I have always been comfortable being nude around the house, mostly upstairs in the bedroom areas. I would clean the house in my underwear. Many times, I experienced and loved skinny dipping.|
So, when my brother–in–law ‘confessed’ to me that he and my sister–in–law were nudists. My first reaction was laughter; my second reaction was ‘I have got to try this!’ My brother–in–law showed me some web sites and introduced me to the philosophy of nudism.
I talked to my husband, who thought I was nuts, but he agreed to try it. Every day after that, I was on the internet reading message boards, and woman’s first time experiences. I wanted to go with all my being, but I was nervous at the same time. But, after reading so many first time experiences all saying the same thing, I began to relax about attending a nudist event.
My first experience was at a naturist club. I immediately felt comfortable. It’s like the old saying ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans.’ Everyone was nude and comfortable, so it was not hard to join in. We brought our snacks to share, our towel and some beer to drink. The people were friendly; the water felt good without a suit on and the night ended all too quickly.
Michael & Jane's First-Time Nudist Experience
||My first time was several years ago when my wife and I were visiting the San Francisco area. While we were in town we bought a tour book to help us see the sights and found mention of some nude beaches. After much pushing on my part, my wife finally agreed to visit a beach in Marin County.|
During the walk from the parking lot I felt as thrilled to be visiting as she did apprehensive. When we got to the nudist beach, sure enough there were nude people all over the place. We found an empty spot and spread out our blanket.
Being newbies to this, we weren't sure how to proceed. I also didn't want to rush her and make her feel more uncomfortable. I decided to take my time undressing, trying to be cool and not show how thrilled I was to be really here. We both took off shoes which was was no big deal of course. Then I took off my shirt and was taking my time folding it when I looked in my wife's direction and was surprised to see that she was also topless.
I didn't know what to say. After all, what does one say when something that you have wanted for a long time suddenly was happening. Well, just like that, my wife was totally nude. She beat me to it. Of course, I quickly followed. As the day went along, I realized that my wife was also enjoying this first trip to a nude beach. She even started a conversation with a couple on the next blanket over. After some conversation, the man suggested that my wife be cautious and apply sunblock to places that aren't used to the sun. She kind of blushed when she realized that he was talking about her untanned breasts.
We visited other nudist beaches from time to time, but it was never as thrilling as that first time. I think it was her most enjoyable social nude experience, as well.

The Benefits Of Naturism / Nudism
Naturism Encourages Mutual Respect|
Naturism is characterized by the practice of communal nudity. Nudity is seen by most people as being the most obvious aspect of naturism. While it is true that nudity is central to naturism, it is also a means of encouraging self-respect, respect for others, and for the environment. To approach another person completely naked is an act of trust. You are saying, in effect, "Here I am, completely unpretentious, with all my physical imperfections on view. Accept me for what I am, and I will accept you as you are. What you see is the whole "me" as I really am." Such an attitude can only engender mutual respect.
Naturism brings you closer to Nature
You feel really close to nature when you discard your clothes and feel warm sunshine, fresh air or cool water on the whole of your body. Being naked outdoors gives you a great sense of freedom.
Nudity is Enjoyable
Being naked in the presence of others is a pleasurable experience, but it is pleasure in the nicest sense of the word. It is very relaxing and enjoyable. You won't find naturists nervously leering at each other - they are open and trusting of each other, accepting each other's imperfections, and respecting each other's personalities.
Nudity is Healthy and Natural
Clothes restrict the flow of air over the skin and prevent the evaporation of perspiration. Clothes encourage the proliferation of bacteria and microscopic fungi, especially in humid and warm conditions. They interfere with the body's natural temperature control mechanisms, making some parts hotter than others. Naked people rarely smell bad, but sweaty clothes do. Tight shorts and trousers, raise the temperature of the testicles in the male, thus interfering with the development of sperm and male hormones and reducing fertility. Nakedness is the human animal's natural condition and contributes to physical and emotional health.
A most important aspect of naturism is its educational effect on growing children. In the clothed world, where everyone goes to great lengths to hide their "private parts", children become ashamed of their own bodies and curious about the bodies of others, especially of the opposite sex. Sex becomes "forbidden fruit", and this leads to unnaturally intense curiosity and often undesirable behavior. In the naturist setting, naked bodies are no big deal. There is no prurient curiosity; no need to be ashamed of one's own body since others are obviously developing in the same way. Adolescents can see exactly how their bodies are going to change as they grow older. It would be extremely unlikely for a person who has been raised in a naturist family to become a sexual deviant or pedophile. The practice of naturism automatically engenders a healthy attitude towards people of the opposite sex. They are seen as whole personalities, and not merely as sex-objects.
Sunlight is Beneficial (in moderation)
Man has evolved in the presence of natural sunlight, and while it cannot be denied that a surfiet of solar radiation on the skin can be harmful, especially if the skin is lily-white, it is nevertheless true that a moderate amount of sunlight is beneficial and natural. It promotes good health a sense of well-being. It also promotes the synthesis of vitamin D in the skin. The best way to take the sun is in moderate doses and with a slowly acquired all-over tan.
