Telling People You Are A Nudist!

Hey there! I’m a NUDIST!!

When we first ventured out into the nudist world, we were excited and would have loved to tell the world of our love of social nudity. Then reality sets in and all the “what ifs” and the “what would they says” started flashing across our minds. I mean, would people laugh? Think we are weird? Disown us as friends or family? We started to figure we should keep this to ourselves.

As time went by we really started to want people to know. It felt as if we were embarrassed to be nudist. We knew there was nothing wrong with it, so what’s the big deal? So we waited for our first opportunity. Maybe we can even get some of our friends to join us!

I thought about it and figured to just subtly bring it up in conversation. I certainly wasn’t going to just blurt it out! Little steps worked best. I would mention skinny dipping, or lack of tan lines, or something that would involve being nude. Then I would gauge their reaction to see how accepting they might be, before I got down to the nitty gritty.

The results were actually quite surprising. We still have all our friends and family. Our fears never realized. Most everyone was accepting, and some actually interested. I can’t think of anyone saying anything worse than “Well good for you…It’s not for me, but whatever floats your boat” My mother in law was a little concerned, because this involved our children, but she never brings it up any more, so we don’t either.

Now many if not most of our friends know. We do not hide it, and a few have actually caught us nude in the back yard and they were totally cool with it.
So why not tell a few of your friends? You never know they might join you like some of ours did! It feel good to tell people what your passions are…..

I have been a nudist for over 20 years now and must say that all my family and 90% of my friends know about my love of the nudist lifestyle. I have convinced several of my friends to try it and some have adopted the lifestyle and love it. At least 2 family members have been to nudist resorts or functions several times. I do not find it difficult to tell people, even strangers. Like you, if an opportunity opens, I am not hesitant to mention my nudist tendenancies. Also like you, some folks are already nudists or anxious to hear more about it or try it for themselves. I find it very easy to discuss social nudism with anyone.

I have a story about telling people that you are a nudist called Extended Family Acceptance. Once you read it you'll see how similar our stories are.

I was like you and guaged people's reactions. Sometimes it was a tough call, but most often the reaction was always negative. We still havent told our families because we already know their reactions. Thats just the price of living in a religious conservative area as we do. You're very fortunate.

That echos my experience. People's attitudes were "really? whatever..."

Gotta love the raw honesty of your nudity.... I tried to get naked...but you know me.... Just didn't work...

I really like this story. Thanks for sharing.

I would have to say that my experience is pretty similar.
