several years. While a few individuals go nude all of the time (and almost everyone skinny-dips in the pool), and a sizable minority of girls go topless, most of the people stay fully dressed. While nudity is taken at these events, the few full time nudists undoubtedly stand out as a tiny minority.
Now, I Have always loved being naked. I’ve been been a secret naturist since I was a kid, a home nudist since college, as well as a societal nudist for about FIVE years now. I have gone on bare hikes and canoes excursions with my nudist club, where we’ve encountered cloths. And I’ve been going to pagan parties for young family nudist , and have constantly skinny-dipped in the pool. I’m completely comfortable being bare among textiles now – so long as their are other nudists with me.
But it took http://tvamateur.net before I became daring enough to go skyclad all the time at pagan gatherings.
That’s because when I do, I’m frequently the only person naked in my local vicinity.
Even now, after many years of going skyclad as much as weather permits, I still have to work up some boldness to do it when 95% of the folks around me are wearing something. It’s completely different from the feeling of naturalness in being naked at at nudist club. There is a certain feeling of being the odd one out, of being exposed, of fear that people may respond negatively.
Actually, I’ve only had negative reactions once – from pagans who came from a different state where clothes are definitely NOT discretionary, even at pagan occasions. Everyone else has ever been taking. Many individuals never appear to even notice that I am naked (though I understand they do) – and the few that do mention it are always favorable. (Though sometimes jokingly. When I came out of the non-CO dining hall once and didn’t take off my pareo instantly, one friend asked if I was okay or not ).
while I go skyclad at parties, I instantly become comfortable about being nude among textiles. But I’m constantly conscious that I’m in an extremely little -and exceptionally visible! – minority. I still have work up some boldness before venturing nude in the crowds – just like I used to have to do before walking onstage in front of a huge audience.
Nevertheless, I always work up that boldness, if only as a point of honor. I am one of the few actively nudist pagans at my local parties, and I want to supply moral support for other people that may want to try it too – but like me, do not want to be alone.
Many years back, I watched the few consistently-skyclad pagans at parties, and wished I was brave enough to join them. It took many years, but finally, I did. I feel that I would be failing them if I did not continue their tradition.
And maybe, with luck, I’ll inspire others to become nudists, just as they inspired me.
