I love being naked outside in nature. I love the sensations on my skin — feeling the warmth of the sun, the wind stirring my body hairs, water enveloping and caressing me.

I remember being shy about naked bodies when I was a 16-year-old exchange student in Germany. A girl at school was showing pictures from her summer vacation, and she was topless in one of them. I’m pretty sure I blushed, and I didn’t know where to put my eyes. Later that year, I went swimming at a pond with a couple of friends. They changed out of their wet swimsuits into dry clothes by the car before returning home; I chose to wear my wet suit under my clothes all the drive home, extra aware of how uncomfortable it was because I could have made a different choice.
