Stepping Out

hontouniheart%20bw%20windowgazeI was reading a few great articles by clothes free bloggers, mainly: “A House Divided Cannot Stand – What’s Happening to the Clothes Free Community” and, “Why isn’t social nudity thriving?” as well as thought-provoking comments on those posts.

I am 2 months into my clothes free journey. As it unfolds, I feel the desire to connect with other clothes free folks in the area. At the moment, all of my clothes free connections are through social media. Certainly, it is a powerful medium; I am constantly moved and inspired by rich and inspiring exchanges that emerge from these places. At the same time, I feel a bit isolated and alone in my city. I don’t actually share the lifestyle or experience with any other human in my vicinity.

It is wonderful that there are resorts, beaches and other places that are clothes free or clothing optional.

At the same time, distance can be an issue. I have one main job and several other small jobs, so time is not always abundant for longer travel to these places. I take into account whatever financial responsibilities I have (student loans are a beast). I also don’t own a car. So, going to existing designated clothing optional / clothes free areas would mean setting aside significant time and funding just for that. Of course there is absolutely nothing wrong with that; any vacation would require the same investment.

But that’s just it: my clothes free lifestyle is not a vacation. It’s my everyday life. I wake up in my own skin, prepare food, do laundry, read, write, clean, chat, dance, and work (if at home) clothes free.

The thing is, I want to be able to take the metro or bus for $1 – $5 to a place in the metropolitan area, throw my mat down and do clothing optional yoga with folks on a Wednesday night, and then be home by 9:30pm in time to sleep and wake up for work the next morning.

 How do I find people in my neighborhood with whom I can share this experience on a more regular basis, in more everyday ways? If I create such opportunities on my own, how do I find other people who would want to engage with me here in the city? On major social sites, colleagues from all of my jobs are connected to me, so I could lose my jobs should I make an announcement. And everybody knows everybody, so finding more work and having references could be challenging. Yet, what other options are there? Are we all hiding in the walls waiting for a safe invitation? Who goes first? Duck, duck, goose
 I continue to research what is available as well as decide on setting aside resources to go to places and creating activities on my own. Those are my responsibilities. At the same time, I’d also love to hear how folks have navigated these kinds of elements in their personal clothes free experiences. How did you end up at your first social clothes free event? How did you create your social clothes free world?
