Cherie Lidbury talks about how she feels more comfortable without clothes.
Who doesn’t love the thrill of being naked? Whether it be walking around the house sans clothes when you’re home alone or that time you threw caution to the wind and went skinny dipping, there’s something intimately freeing about getting your gear off.
While for most of us nudity is about all about a moment of spontaneity, for some it’s a permanent lifestyle choice.
Cherie Lidbury, who lives in Newcastle on the New South Wales coast, says she fell into the nudist lifestyle in her 30s when she was a sales rep on the road and has embraced the concept ever since.
“I lived in Perth and sometimes during the day I’d think ‘it’s such a beautiful day, I just want to go down the beach’ but I never had any bathers with me,” Ms Lidbury told mybodyandsoul.com.au, “so I would just go to Swanbourne (nudist) beach, strip off and go for a nice swim and enjoy the freedom of it all.”
