I am somewhat new to nudism in the last few years though I'm no stranger to nudity. I've been a nudist, since my early 17. I never grew up in a household where nudity was. I like to be nude as much as possible. It is so relaxing and comfortable to be naked. Nudity is quite normal for me; there is still a sense of thrill about being nude. It can be both relaxing as well as sensual. I sleep naked so my family and a few close female friends see me naked but that is all. When I am at home I am naked all the time, I walk around my house naked, doing my chores, school work, cook and eat naked, sleep naked and sit at the computer naked. Being naked is something I do often and have done for awhile. But the first time I was wanted been nudist was when I was about 17 years old or so. I was with my cousin, who was also nudist ,and we were caught by my mom. I was not really allowed to be nude a lot because of my conservative parents. I've always enjoyed being naked, but in high school I really started practicing nudism. I was 17 when I saw my nudist cousin spend a lot of time nude then I first became curious about how it felt like to be nude in my room. I don't know exactly why but I thought I would be more comfortable if I took off my underwear, so I did. It felt weird at first, for a while I was self conscience of my body. Not because anything was wrong, just because I had never been nude in my room before I guess. I got over the awkwardness (self-consciousness) and it felt nice. Now I'm constantly nudist. A home nudist.
