I have a similar experience, partly due to kids at home but I think its the atmosphere at the beach and the beauty of lots of beach locations, it puts you in a different mental state to take on a whole new attitude to yourself and relaxation. The warmth of the beach, the sound of the waves, the peacefulness of most nude beaches as they are often far from the madding crowds. I will be nude at home sometimes but not often and it seems a little odd or out of place as home is usually occupied by a number of others, both family and visitors. The nude beach switches a different mindest.

Cheers, Steve.

Steve, I completely agree with you about the difference in mindset of social nudism. I am only able to enjoy naturism on parts of my own property, and nudity in my own home when we have no one else here. Because I have to think about hiding my nudity, it remains in the psychological realm of the forbidden. In other words, it feels good, but not "natural" to me. I only have been able to go to one resort, and although I was disappointed in the resort itself, I was suddenly able to see if nudity could feel normal to me. I could, and in that way, the resort visit was of great value to me. More social nudity opportunities would only increase the mindset of "Normal" versus "Unusual but good, and still to be hidden" I know that many here will disagree with me, and all I can say is this is the effect of too much home nudity and not enough social nudity. That is to say, this is the effect on me, I will not presume to say it is universal.

Did you go to the resort alone or with a partner? I'm interested in getting my partner into nudism more and wondered about the resort away from home and the mindset / relaxation approach with that, ie. holidays, away from home, unlikely to meet people you know etc. Did that contribute to enjoying the experience? My partner won't go nude at home due to our kids and neither do I as it seems "out of place" in a sense. I was nude at home this week as the temp was 43C (about 115F I think) and no-one was home but that's about it, it does not seem natural because that's where we have our family "space". The context is important I find.

Steve.

I agree that nudism is sometimes harder for women (especially) when it's at or near home. We live within a 20 minute drive from a nude beach and resort, but for many years my wife would not accompany me there out of fear that she might run into someone we know. However, on vacation she would sometimes go nude on beaches that were not officially nude. I think we all get used to one type of behavior at a given location; because one is usually clothed at home (due to textile relatives, lack of privacy, etc.) it sometimes doesn't feel "natural," even when you are finally alone. On the other hand, if you have always spent your time nude at a certain beach or resort, wearing clothes feels odd.

The same with people you know. We have friends that we are always nude with; to the point that we don't even know what kind of clothes they wear. It seems so natural to be nude around them.

As Diger said, "Nudity is more a state of mind than dress."

This essay addresses nudism only peripherally, but should be required reading for all the men on this site who keep wondering Why She Won't Do It. No doubt some men will read it and protest, "I'm not like that!". You may be right, and if so, good for you. But it's not about you. You need to ask HER if this woman's experience rings true.

Thanks Doc, good article. Yes it makes me as a man think a little more about the issue and the hassles women often have to endure. My wife has large breasts and a slim body and this article could easily have been about her as a young girl, a teenager and a young woman. She has told me stories very similar to this so clearly this attitude of some men that they think they have a right to touch, comment and harass women seems the same world over. It's sad really and seems to belong to cave men, maybe some of our species haven't evolved very far.

Certainly reinforces with me (what I think I already knew) why women on their own don't go to nude beaches as much as men. I'm just trying to get my wife to come with me to the beach. There should be relative safety that way but the ogling would probably still happen I guess but not the touching and verbals.

Cheers, SBN.

Great article. Should be a must read for all boys in grades 5 through college! Hopefully it'll sink in by then!


Raised by a mother that had lived through those times when a woman was treated with total disrespect, much like the women of the Mad Men series, she was not about to allow her sons to become those types of men. We were schooled frequently on how it was to treat a woman and what it was like to be woman that was mistreated. We were taught to respect women and yes ... back in the late 50's, I was told and taught that a woman was to be respected and treated as an equal to any man. She endured 17 years of abuse and mistreatment from a man that obviously felt differently. This was probably the most learning experience I had on what never to do.

Because of that, I am hypersensitive about any mistreatment or any harassing of women I see. Of course it's gotten me in some pretty scary situations but I think in most cases, it got the guy to stop and think about what he was doing or saying. I know our grandsons are being taught similarly and our granddaughters are being taught not to accept this type of treatment.



Loves being naked. Plays well with others!

Thanks for the comments. I was thinking to myself that one of the benefits of social nudity is that it can allow us - and by 'us' I suppose I mean 'men' - to see the body as something ordinary, and perhaps to get past the corrosive nonsense of entitlement, possession, and objectification.
