Introduction To Skinny Dipping

My mother and father got divorced - he moved away and I have seen him only a couple of times since then. But when my mom started dating my stepfather a whole different world opened up. He was very good to me and treated me well. He would take me out to movies and we would hang out with my new cousins and family. My mom and I went over to spend a weekend at his place - he was having family over on Saturday and so it was going to be a kind of party. He had a pool - so I brought my swimming suit.

That night after dinner he asked me if I wanted to take a swim. Of course the answer was yes - I said I was going to get my suit. He told me not to bother - which I didnt quite understand at first. He asked why I needed it - and I said to go swimming. I remember him looking at my mom. He said we're all family now - let's just skip the suit. I looked at my mom and she said if I wanted to I could. He grabbed me a towel and told me to leave my clothes in "my" room. In my room I was nervous about the whole thing but didnt want to miss the chance either. I came out with the towel wrapped around me and nothing else. We went out by the pool where he pulled off his shirt and shorts (no underwear) and dived in the pool. I hadnt really seen a grown man naked before. Mom was sitting by the pool with a drink and said well if your going in you better get to it. It had also been a while since Id been naked in front of mom other than her popping in and out of my room or the bathroom while I was in the tub or something. Yikes.

I went toward the shallow end. Took off the towel and jumped in. After the cold wore off a bit it was the BEST FEELING EVER!!! At first I was nervous about getting out of the pool but after he did several times and asked me to show him my best dive I got used to it - even with mom there lol.

This was a good thing because Saturday when the rest of the "family" arrived I realized that although girls wore swimming suits, none of the boys did. After that I never wore a suit in his pool. And after they got married we moved into his place. It was great never having to bother with it. Although my grandparents (mom's mom and dad) were a little surprised the first time they came over - but never said anything after that - at least not to me.

My wife and I have continued the tradition with our three boys.

How old were you when this happened?

When the family met together on Saturday you said that the girls wore suits, but that the boys were naked. Did this include the male adults or just the boys? And was this the custom in subsequent uses of the pool with mixed genders?

I was 11 - and yes, most of the time guys swam naked, girls wore suits. Sometimes (depending on who it was) the girls swam naked too - and it wasnt too unusual for everyone to be naked in the pool if it was late night swimming. But most of the time...

Isn't it a fantastic tradition! Unfortunately for me, my mom and dad were more of the traditional generation and I didn't discover the wonderful feeling of skinny dipping until I was much older. I loved the very first time that I did skinny dip and still practice it today, every chance that I get!
