Nudism is on the rise. And with many of the benefits clear, it’s easy to see why. But how do you start? Is it as simple as taking off your clothes? Well, in some ways, yes, but there is a little more to it. Today, we tell you how you may make stripping off just that little bit easier.
Starting your journey
When first considering the change you may rightly ask what is so good about it? And a quick google will usually end up bombarding you with words like ‘freedom’, emotive epithets and ‘spiritual’ aphorisms.
Now, this is all well and good but doesn’t really separate nudism from any other self-defining pursuit. But therein lies the crux, nudism is inherently self-defining.
When its just you, free of any clothes, labels of presuppositions, there is not really anything left to hide. And without waxing lyrical on ‘be who you are’, there is little other opportunity for such a direct way to do so.
Staying on the road
The first thing to realise is that nudism is not simply about being naked, it’s about embracing life whilst in the buff. And this may feel very different, even pressured. Are you supposed to suddenly feel enlightened?
Or is this a misconception?
Whilst most people may feel an immediate freedom, it can be hampered by what to do next. So once you have decided to go nude, where do you go and what do you do?
Well thankfully, you are not alone. Nudist communities, whether online or out in the real world, are more commonplace than you would think. And better yet, they are information hubs for local or national events that are designed just for you.
You could also choose to bring in your friends and family. Okay, the idea of seeing dad in the buff may be a little beyond what is normal, but partners and friends may be interested. Consider it something new, and perhaps even as part of a bonding exercise.
Heck, even if it only happens once, that’s a great story. We all remember that time skinny dipping with our housemates during university.
And another thing to consider is visiting a nudist colony or specially designed resort. Plenty of like-minded people to meet, some who may have just started out. And others who may share their valuable experiences.
But if not far-flung events or couples experiences, what can you do alone? Well, the answer is basically anything. Nudism does not have to be overly special but can be easily placed into your day to day life.
Cook naked, clean naked, watch Game of Thrones naked. Making it normal for you will go a long way.
So once you have started, you may begin to enjoy it. And all these emotive descriptions of freedom and self-fulfillment may begin to ring true. There is a reason nudism is taking off.
But often you may find yourself limited by others. This is usually due to stigma and misunderstanding, especially if you are male. Others may only consider nudism a form of sexuality when they miss the very personal and non-threatening reasons that most practice it.
So before you go anywhere, make sure just to take a moment to double check the law around things. This differs from place to place, and if you are unsure its always worth checking. And if you are really concerned about how people may react, talk to others who have done the same.
Hopefully, we have given you a little introduction of how to start practicing nudism and some ideas of what to do, but there is so much more. If you have any ideas, let us know in the comments below.
