I FIRST became aware of naturism when I was about 10 watching Carry on Camping and there were people playing tennis naked. The Carry On team were feeling sick about it and I thought ‘that’s a very strange reaction to a naked body’. I was still shy getting changed in front of other people but I was quite happy to jump naked into the river in the middle of nowhere when we visited a cottage we had in the Borders.
Embarrassment starts to kick in about 13/14 years old and it did for me too. I never saw my parents naked and yet if you go back 100 years, coal miners for example would come home and have a bath in front of all of the kids so nudity was not unusual until recently.
