How My Family Became Nudist!

(Summer, 2009) My family became nudist last summer. We built a pool three years ago and at night I would take off my suit and swim nude. I loved it. One of my boys came to ask something. He never asked, instead he shouted "Mom you aren't wearing anything."
We talk about skinny dipping at night. I asked if he was embarrassed. He said no. This became a nightly ritual; I didn't put my suit on before going out to the pool.
On day while sunning by the pool, I got hot and dove in with my suit on. After a minute, I took my suit off and got out of the pool nude. I was nude all day. I went in to cook dinner I never got dressed. My husband (Jim) and boys (Brian and JT) were shocked to see me cooking naked. I started going nude all the time.
The next day, I laid by the pool, nude. My husband worked most of the day in the yard. He showered off and came out wearing only a towel. He sat and we talked about my “show” last night. He asked if I would have ******** and gone nude, I told him I never wanted to wear a bathing suit again in our pool. We grilled and ate by the pool that day.
The next weekend, I got home from work and took off my clothes and went straight to the pool. Brian came out to swim; he asked if I was going to put a suit on. I told him I was going to be nude in our pool for now on. I asked him if that was ok with him. He said I was weird. I told him Dad and I have decided that we are not wearing suits anymore but he still could. He swam for awhile. He got out and went to the patio door, ********, and wrapped a towed around himself and went inside (they must be dry to go inside- dad’s rule). He later came back out and put on the wet bathing suit. I got out of the pool and dried off and asked what he wanted for dinner, he said hamburgers. Jim asked about dinner and I told Hamburgers. He started the grill and I went inside to get hamburgers. When I came out I saw a soggy suit next to the pool. Brian was in the pool and not wearing a suit.
When the hamburgers were ready I opened the door and yelled to JT dinners ready. He came out and saw all of us naked and said guess you are all nudist now. We ate dinner and talked about wearing clothes and why our pool now was clothing optional. He was ok as long as he didn’t have to participate.
At home clothes were a thing of the past. Nude was now the way I was unless we had visitors. When they did come by I would put on a swim cover-up. I was nude as when possible, clothed when practical.
I talk to Jim about going away to a nudist resort; he said no way. I eventually convinced him to go. So our first time was at Caliente in Land O Lakes, Florida. We loved it. What a place we had the best time. Our trip was perfect. We rented a condo and were nude for seven days straight. Late one night, I even went to McDonald’s nude; I just wrapped a towel around me.
Driving home we talked about bringing the boys back with us, JT didn’t have any interest in being nude other than in the shower. Brian would swim nude but get dressed afterwards. So maybe this was too much to ask of them.
We told Brian and JT about our trip and asked if they would be interested. Brian said, “Sounds great, when we can go?”
JT said, “No way”
JT is twelve and Brian is ten. I could understand JT not wanting any part of this. Although comfortable with us not wearing clothes at home, he wasn’t ready to be nude or at a place where others are nude.
We had trip to Disney planned for July and thought maybe we would swing by a nudist resort for a day. Brian went online and looked up nudist resorts around Disney. He found Cypress Cove. Brian started sleeping nude, and sometimes just lounging around nude.
One night JT went swimming by himself. He dove in and swam to the other side of the pool. I watched him out of the window. He swam and played until Brian came and jumped in. they played and swam for about an hour. I watched the whole time and JT didn’t get out. The next morning I went to clean the pool and in the bottom of the deep end was a JT’s bathing suit.
I was outside sitting by the pool, now my tan is nice and even. I was getting darker every day. JT came and sat by me, and asked if we went to Disney would he have to go nude if we went to Cypress Cove. I told him he could dress or undress as he wanted no one would force him to be nude. He told me about swimming nude at night and how much he had liked not wearing a suit. I told him that is how I started and his dad still will wear a suit sometimes. He wanted to know if there would be kids his age at the resort. I told him I think so. He went back inside and Brian came out with a towel wrapped around him. I asked Brian if he left his suit in the bottom of the pool. He said it was JT’s because he never swims with one.
After talking to JT, I asked if there was somewhere he wanted to go while we were at Disney. He said no and asked where we would be staying. I told him we would stay at Disney. He told me Brian wants to stay at “the nudist place.” I asked him what he thought. He just said, “I don’t care as long as I don’t have to be nude.”
I talked to Jim; he couldn’t believe JT would be open to the idea. We made reservation at Cypress Cove.
On the drive down the boys watched a movie with their headphones. I told Jim I was happy we were going to Cypress Cove with the boys. Jim told me he made reservations at a hotel: just-in-case JT freaks out. JT told me,” I didn’t know you wanted to go with us here so bad.” I told him I want to be a full-time nudist with my family but, I’m not going to force this on you. We can go stay at a hotel. He said he was “OK” with this.
We arrived at Cypress Cove on Friday, around noon. I was undressed a soon as we cleared the gate.
Brian shouted, “I see naked people.”
JT said, “And they are all old.”
“Yes” Jim said,
We found our condo and it overlooked the pool. Jim and the boys unloaded the car. JT went into the bathroom and locked the door. Brian stared out the window and watched all the other kids playing. JT open the door and stepped out nude and said, “I’m a nudist now.”
We grabbed our towels, sunscreen and my book and headed for the pool. JT wrapped in the towel and followed close behind. We found four chairs, I sat and looked around and the boys were gone. They surfaced on the other side of the pool. They played with some younger kids. We were all enjoying our nudist vacation.
We got up and asked the boys what they wanted to do today. They were ready for Disney. We got dressed and drove to Disney. I wore a Cypress Cove t-shirt and short no underwear. Jim wore the same. After two hours at Epcot, JT said lets go back and swim. Brian wanted to do one more ride, so after that we headed back to “The Cove” as the boy called it.
We were back at “The Cove” by two o clock. This time JT was nude before we were in the gate. Brian soon followed his brother by taking off his clothes. Brian said he never wanted to wear clothes again. We spent the rest of Saturday by the pool. The boys meet other kids there age and we would see them only for a brief moment. JT complained about how white he was compared to me. I told him he would darken up by the end of the week.
Sunday I got the boys up and we cook breakfast in our condo. The boys asked if we were going back to Disney. I asked if they wanted to go Brian said no and JT said he didn’t care. I talked to them and asked them if we didn’t go could the find fun things to do here. JT said, “I’m happy here, it is too hot and too many people at Disney.”
JT and Brian were in the pool all day. I sat and watched them play. It was like JT and Brian were best friends. No typical older-younger brother rivalry. JT came and sat by me. And I said your tan is darker today then yesterday. He smiled. A twelve year girl walked by and smiled at him. I have a feeling JT will be a life-long nudist now.
We talked for a while he wanted to know if he could text his friends. I told him ok, but they might think it is weird. Some I told him might make fun of him. He decided to wait to tell them later. I went inside to get a drink. When I came back JT was talking to that girl that smiled at him. She told him she has grown up as a nudist since she was a baby. Her mom and dad live in a community called Paradise Valley in North Georgia. He asked her if her friends at school know she said “of course.” Brian told me later he saw them hold hands. The girl went home the next day. She text JT all the way home.
With the money we saved by not going to Disney we bought a hot tub and a pool heater.
On the way home the boy slept. Jim and I talked about being full-time nudist. Jim wasn’t as excited about telling people or hosting parties. I love being nude and told him no more clothes to be worn around the house. He agreed, but I sensed discomfort in my idea.
When we got home and the boys unloaded the car, went to their rooms and went to bed. Jim and I stayed up and went thru the mail. We are now full-time nudist

Loved this story. I hope you post more, as you write very well.

That is a beautiful story. She sounds like a wonderful Mom.

Fantastic Story, I applaud your openness and your acceptance of others not wanting to join in. I also think that their acceptance and respect of your choice is a credit to the relationship you all share.

Great story I wish we had done something like this when our children were young.

I am a nudist too and I am only ten!!! I am naked writing this

A great, successful, family story.


great experience, thanks for sharing!

Great story. We have been to Paradise Valley. Serendipity (not too far away) was our first nudist experience as a young couple. We are now back in the area after many years away. Our motto for a long time is "enjoy life".

Great story and love how your sons "came around"

Very casual way to become part of the nude congregation :)


Welcome to nudism! It was nice to read your story. Thank you!

Good for all of you- life feels better nude.

Great story.

This is a wonderful story. We, too, have a hot tub with a 'no suits' rule and it is no problem for anyone in the family. Our deck is great for sunbathing, too. Around the house, casual nudity is the norm. It is a great feeling to be free!

love the story glad you found a great way of life

I have been a nudist since the age of 12. I often go to studland in Dorset and sunbathe nude, and I love to swim nude too. None of my immediate family are interested in naturism, but know I love being naked.

So awesome how your family adopted this....Love it. I want a family like this as well.

I noticed how you kept erroneously referring to Disney World as Disney. Disney is the name of a company. Disney World is where you went.

oh if only the weather was better here............

You live a life that I can barely dream about...

well we here raised our kids as nudists and now they in there thrity and have a sane happy life without all the hangup there friend have.

Welcome to the world of freedom and honesty. I'm happy for you and your family
