newbie’s first nudie experience

On July 12th was my 38th Birthday and for 2 years now ive been embracing the nudist life but mainly practicing as a home nudist but also been venturing out on my patio, I figure it was time to inhance my growth and try something new so why not a good time to try it on your day of birth, a true celebration! So I experienced my 1st Nude Resort! Won’t say I was Nervous but Anxious and turned out to be the opposite of preconcieve notions (just individuals sexualizing the whole automosphere of the resort and being gawked at) it was welcoming, calming, relaxing, pure freedom! It Confirmed my truth in this lifestyle, still been on a liberating high! 😍

first time wnbr la rider finds community

My name is Vince. My gf @naturesoulgoddess  and I rode for @wnbrla2018. We rode our bikes nude through the streets of downtown Los Angeles It was so liberating to ride in our natural state. This is my first time doing something like this aside from the naked hike a while back. It felt like a community there. Almost a different world. People were so nice and we met some friends as well. It was an awesome experience. My first time being nude in front of so many people. I got a real sense of community right away upon arrival at the WNBRLA. I never felt the type of unity that was there with everyone like I felt that day. I will definitely be back next year! Remember to embrace your body, live in the moment and always strive to become the best version of you. #worldnakedbikeride #losangeles #2018 @mcbelzar

first time naturist venue report – Oaklake Trails

First time visit to a naturist  venue – Oaklake Trails Nudist Park guest submission by Cle Lame

Introductions

I have considered myself a naturist for several years now starting with an experience when I was young where I got naked in my backyard and realized that I didn’t feel guilty for doing so later on I started to research public nudity this led my to naturism/nudism and eventually to the Naturist Living Show podcast where I learned a lot about the history of naturism and also developed my thoughts and opinions of many issues and situations relating to naturism. I was at least a closet nudist from then on.

First time

While I would say that I have been a naturist for many years at least six. But it wasn’t until June 30th (around two weeks ago as of this writing) that I went to my first naturist venue of any kind. I had researched for weeks the only 2 landed clubs in Oklahoma, they are Nature’s Hideaway and  Oaklake Trails. Nature’s Hideaway seemed nice enough but their website was a messy disaster their marketing was simultaneously horrendous and non-existent and so it wasn’t until I called to pre-register that I learned that I couldn’t go unless I convinced another member of my family to go with me (they are couples and family only and I am single) and being only an 18 year-old with no family that is any more than okay with me being a naturist (I only came out in the last six months) that wasn’t happening. Oaklake Trails on the other hand while they didn’t have much more marketing out on the web their website was much neater and I was actually able to find all of the information that I needed and they did in fact allow singles so there I was.

I asked my mom to loan me some money and drop me off while her and a friend went to the Hard Rock in Tulsa and she did (mostly because she thought that this whole naturism thing was a phase and that I would at least lose interest if I went once) and we decided that I needed to stay overnight so that I could attend church service there.

The trip

So I woke up early friday grabbed my stuff and we headed out it took about an hour to go to Oklahoma city and pick up Mom’s friend then about an hour and a half more to make it to Depew Oklahoma and Oaklake Trails. We then called in, got the gate opened, and drove up to the office which to my Mom’s dismay was inside the park so she saw more nudity than she intended to. Anyway I walked into the office and got signed in which thanks to the member on staff only took about 2 minutes despite him also helping someone else sign in and selling a third person a bag of ice. My mom then went ahead and dropped me at my campsite and left.

The first thing I did was strip down because it was extremely hot out I was ready and eager to take my first steps into the real social nudism experience. I then pitched my tent and decided what I wanted to do first. Well I felt the answer to that was obvious swim! So showered real quick and hoofed it to the pool. It was amazing the pool was just the right temperature the people were really friendly and despite my own social anxiety I had some great conversations with different people. I learned that I had arrived not to long after they had finished renovating their clubhouse.

 

I then decided that I wanted to try the hiking trails they were awesome but it didn’t seem like they were used often and the horse flies were pretty bad but I enjoyed myself nonetheless. I also all of my meals at their restaurant the Bare Bistro again really good.

I spent most of my time in the pool but there were a few different activities I joined in. around the afternoon a group of people decided to play twister and despite my reservations I decided to join in one round but mostly I just watched. The big event was their fourth of July fireworks show and dance. The fireworks were really great but I was very tired towards the end of them and went to bed early so I missed the dance. When I got back to my tent I discovered I could not get my cot to open up in my tent and that I had pitched my tent on a lot more sticks than I had thought however the person in the tent next to me had brought a spare air mattress and was kind enough to let me use it for the night..

The next morning I ate breakfast swam a bit and then went to church. The sermon was very interesting but it was all over the place (and mostly improvised) so it was a bit hard to follow.

Finally I swam for another hour or so then it was time to go.

Overall it was very enjoyable in almost every way despite some issues with bugs. Anyway I thank everyone I met while there as well as the staff who clearly work hard to make Oaklake Trails enjoyable.

My first time at a Naturist Event

I very recently took my first step into public social nudity by attending a naturist event at High Beeches Gardens in West Sussex, England. I visited alone and I want to share my experience  – particularly with any non naturists.

My first naturist event

Yesterday I attended my first ever naturist event I visited alone and thought I would be nervous. I was surprised that I was not, as I drove to the beautiful gardens of High Beeches in West Sussex. I felt calm and content and excitement at the same time. It was an event where clothing was not optional so I knew I had to be totally nude.

On arrival there was a sign asking people to disrobe in the car park. This was useful as I had no idea of the protocol required for such an event. I parked up to see other naturists doing just that, so I jumped out of my car and removed my sundress leaving me as nature intended.  I wandered over to the kiosk, chatted with the woman and another naturist about the beautiful weather as I paid my entrance fee. Armed with a map of the gardens I headed off to explore the 27 acres of woodland and water gardens.

The gardens

It was  a lovely sunny day and the gardens were spectacularly beautiful. The rhododendrons were in various stages of bloom and the open areas were amass with oxide daisies and wild orchids. The water gardens and pond were a tranquil setting to sit and enjoy the beauty of the place.  It’s a large gardens. I found myself feeling at ease and contented as I wandered around nude, feeling totally at one with nature.

There were a mix of naturists there. Some lone men and some couples. I appeared to be the only solo female. They were all very friendly and I chatted with several about naturism and the beautiful setting. It was not odd or scary, that I was nude whilst speaking with my fellow nudists.  It was totally comfortable and natural.

What an incredible experience

It was a most enjoyable experience and one that I will definitely do again. I cannot see how anyone, whether naturist or not could not enjoy such a freeing and liberating experience.

My message to any non naturists/nudists reading this, is please do try to feel the joy and freedom that being nude in nature brings. Naturism is such a liberating and freeing experience and my first time being socially nude in nature was an incredible experience!

The First Indonesian Nudist Gathering

On the 11 and 12 November 2016, 6 nudists from Indonesia held an event. It was the first Indonesian nudist gathering.

The name of the nudist group is 69-ers, where “6” refers to male and “9” refers to female. There were no agenda there, because we still wondering what to do in the gathering. Then we much more gathered and talking about many topics.  From sharing about the meaning of nudism until politics, especially about Ahok (Basuki Tjahaja Purnama).

This was our first gathering. Even we just started from only 6 nudists, but we believe that we can spread the true meaning of nudism 🙂

clothes free vacation pt. 5: the women

I had a much needed healing experience with the women I encountered on my clothes free vacation, both at the Northeast Naturist Festival at Empire Haven Nudist Park and at the clothing optional beach we visited towards the close of the adventure.

This was a very important moment for me, because my introduction to clothes free life happened through social media. And similar to what others have shared, I found it difficult to find clothes free accounts / users online that weren’t primarily focused on the human body as just a body and incessantly commenting on it sexually. I have seen various genders post those kinds of images and have seen various genders make sexual commentary on pictures, even when the images were not at all about that subject. Read more

clothes free vacation, pt. 4: fun bits & firsts

So far, I’ve written a number of in-depth, soulful reflection posts about my first ever clothes free vacation. As I mentioned in my first post in this series, there were MANY firsts throughout this inaugural nakation. For this one, I’d like to take a pause and share some of the fun moments.

Also, we weren’t allowed to take pictures at the location, so… I edited some footage I had in my photo bank. I also made some fun attempts in Google Drawings. Permission to point and laugh.
