I was raised in an extremely modest house. Full nudity was confined to the bathroom and only consisted of shower or bath time. I actually don’t remember ever seeing anyone else in the house nude. Perhaps that is why nudity fascinated me as a teen (beyond the normal curiosity about sex, etc.).
Somewhere around seventh grade, I started reading fantasy novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Conan publications by Robert E. Howard. The covers of these paperbacks featured excellent paintings by Frank Frazetta or Boris Vallejo. Many of them included nudity by members of both sexes. The nudity wasn’t of a sexual nature; the characters in the paintings were involved in other endeavors. A lot of them involved combat, where I figured nudity was undoubtedly not advantageous.
The stories in the novels featured scenes of casual nudity quite frequently, particularly the Martian novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Both John Carter (from World) and the Martian characters believed nothing of running around in the altogether.

I ‘d just heard of “nudist colonies” as if they were a distant happening (the film “A Shot in the Dark” being the most notable reference). In high school, I heard rumors that there was a nudist camp somewhere in our county, but in the days before the Internet, a teen like me had no clue where to go to find out more.
I eventually graduated high school and went off to college. While I was there, I met a young lady who was an art major. She mentioned in passing that she drew nude models in her figure drawing class. The concept of modeling for this type of group was both frightening and exciting at the exact same time. I ventured over to the art building and saw a sheet on a bulletin board advertising for models. They were paying five dollars, which, at the time, was better than any other job I could get. I went to the Tuesday evening open figure drawing session and made an effort to lure the female model there. My drawings were horrible, but I wasn’t too interested in drawing. I needed to witness a session and see how the model behaved, was treated, etc. It took me awhile to collect the nerve to join as a model myself, but I eventually did.
I got a call from the coordinator of such open session. His model had canceled for that night, and he needed someone to cover. I taken somewhat unwillingly. Once I hung up the telephone, I realized the class began in under an hour. I took a long walk around campus before going into the studio. There were just two women who had shown up to attract that night. It was election night, and I’m certain lots of folks stayed home to see the returns.
I didn’t even have http://nudist-video.net/naked-body-it-just-got-hotter-at-the-nude-beach.html , but the female model I ‘d found hadn’t had one either. I just stripped down beside the modeling platform. I got down to my underwear, took a deep breath, and slipped them off. There I was. The two ladies didn’t run screaming that there clearly was a naked man in the room. I took my poses and got more comfortable as the evening went on.

Surprised the Manager
My lovely wife and I were interested in trying out the nudist experience. While in Ohio, on vacation, we decided to visit Paradise Gardens (outside Cincinnati). When we drove up the road, passed through the gates and found a parking place, we could not see the office, only a sign pointing to where it was. Getting out of the vehicle, we shucked our clothes, grabbed a towel and went searching for the office.
When we explained to the supervisor that we were neophytes, she exclaimed, “This is your first time and you’re already nude!”
Yes, we were, and we definitely enjoyed our say at the gardens.
OY VEY! My Jewish Mother
I was raised by a Jewish mom who taught me that revealing skin was the worst thing on earth. She also instilled in me that my body was definitely not amazing or perfect. I heard it on a regular basis. Cover up. I even had to wear shoes in the house when visitors came, because my toes were “weird looking” in her eyes.
At 25, my then boyfriend told me about a nude beach he was going to every weekend. (Pirates Cove in Malibu). He wanted me to go with him. I believed he was insane. I resisted at first, but then he finally talked me into it. He promised we would leave if I could not manage it.
I scaled the stone with trepidation. We got onto the seashore, I threw my stuff on the sand, looked around and went WOW! It took me maybe 20 seconds to take my clothes away. That whole summer was like the summer that I fell in love with myself and my body for the first time ever.
At the end of the summertime, we broke up; and I never went to another nude beach or resort until I was 42. I missed it. I felt like something was missing. No one would go with me. Finally, at 42, some friends confessed to me that they were nudists; and that they belong to Glen Eden. My reaction was pure excitement.
I begged them to take me. We arranged it for the follow ing weekend. I was so excited that I made myself ill. Nothing was going to stop me. I went anyway, and that was the day I rediscovered myself-the day I became extremely living and whole again. That was 1993. Now, I live in a nudist resort in Land O’ Lakes, Florida; and I’m so lucky in order to live here. As a single gal, I feel safe.

We Never Looked Back
We were interested, concerned and scared, all at exactly the same time. We researched various alternatives and picked “The Terra Cotta Inn” at Palm Springs for our first time trip. Once we walked in, it was clear this wasn’t going to be our regular vacation. We were shown round the grounds by Mary Clare and then went to our room to get unpacked.
After a few minutes, we ventured out and my wife was convinced she would leave the bottom half of her swim suit on. After less than 5 minutes, she saw that she was the only person with anything on and immediately took them off.
On that first trip, we met wonderful people who have become life long friends and can not envision life without nude recreation.
When you have thought of trying it, stop thinking and begin planning. You won’t regret it.
This Changed My Life
One day when my parents were not home I was in my robe alone in the house. I’d get two weeks home alone and it was summer so when they left I went outside and let the robe drop to the ground. I understood the cool summer breeze and the way that it felt so good so I got into the hot tub. Amazing!
For the remainder of that summer I didn’t put on clothes. My parents were frightened initially but they understood this was what made me happy.
