About eight years ago, when my husband first decided to try nude recreation, I had no idea that it would be something that he would develop a passion for–one that would change our whole family. During those years, whenever he would ask me if I would go to a nudist resort with him I would get an uneasy feeling. He would tell me how freeing and fun it was to walk around outside and recreate in the nude, but I just could not understand what the big deal was and why being nude made such a difference. He would tell me of the great health benefits of being nude in the sun and the respect that nudists had for their own and other people’s bodies. Being someone who believes in keeping myself healthy, I really appreciated the idea of the health benefits, but, on the other hand, I just wasn’t ready for something like that. In my mind, there were just too many reasons to decline.
