I was somewhat surprised to learn that lots of nudists are equally as nervous as non-nudists would be in a nude situation. Maybe what makes you a nudist is that the desire to be naked is more powerful in relation to the initial embarrassment of being nude.
My first courageous action was to strip off on a beach. There are not any nude beaches close to me but I discovered a little cove where people rarely go and tried stripping off there. It was a lovely feeling, but I was always worried about being found. Although a little after I did meet some other folks who went naked there.
The following brave thing I did was to take some photos of myself and reveal a few pals. Not in a sleazy way mind you, I only needed to find out if I seemed fine in the nude.
After needing to for a long time, I eventually found the nerve to go to http://wnude.com/nude-beach.html . It took some finding and I was really nervous by the time I got there. This was on new years day so there were tons of folks there. But my hearts went away after seeing all the folks there being naked and thinking nothing of it. I was still clothed when I walked onto the seashore and thought to find a area before undressing. But it appeared so relaxed, that I took my top off before I even settled down. When I located a spot to place my towel, I took the remainder of my clothes away and I was surprised how quickly I got used to it. After acclimatizing, I got up and went for a walk, completely bare for everyone to see and it was no huge deal whatsoever because everyone was the same. Actually, I felt much more comfortable being naked there that I ‘d feel only taking my top off on a standard beach.
I reckon the most recent brave thing I did was to upload my naked avatar here. As mentioned, I’ve revealed photos to a couple of pals, but this is the very first time I have posted one for all the world to see. I do not believe I Will leave it up very long so love (if that’s the word) it while you can. I actually don’t think I’ll be using the photo albums feature however – I am not that brave.
