Didn't Want To - But Sure Do Now!

Yes, I'm a geezer and, yes, I wear very little at home. But I wasn't always a geezer.  And I didn't always wear very little at home, either.  In fact, as a young boy, I didn't want anyone outside of my family to see me in pajamas and I did not like to wear short-sleeved shirts.  Why?  I have no idea - maybe someone here with a psychology degree can explain that!  But all that changed when I was about eleven.

I posted the details of the incident in a story in the "I Have Been Nude In Front Of Family" category, but the short version is that I was forced to go naked by my older brother when our parents went out.  Although I was reluctant at first (no, actually, I wasn't "reluctant," I just refused but my older and stronger brother convinced me that my feelings on the matter were trumped by his), I did start going naked when he told me to.  That was pretty much it - he just wanted me to stay naked while he was naked.  He wouldn't let me put clothes back on until we heard the car back in the driveway.  At first I tended to stay in my room, but eventually I didn't care and would go wherever I wanted to go.  We were never caught by our parents.  Well, not the two of us running around naked, but that's also another story.

Anyway, the point is, while I definitely did not want to do it at first, after a while, I started to enjoy the feeling.  We moved and he stopped forcing me to go nude (he found girls!).  But by that time, I had started sleeping naked and would stay naked in my room without being ordered to.

Now, for those of you who are curious about but reluctant to being nude at home, I highly recommend you try sleeping naked first.  It is wonderful.  No pajamas twisting up or binding; cooler in the summer but not sure I can say warmer in the winter.  But the free feeling from being naked in my room (and the earlier times all around the house) plus the better sleep I got from being naked convinced me at a relatively early age that naked (or wearing as little as possible) was the way to go.

And still is.  Try it!

IowaGirl - lucky you!

MRK - well, I believe it was pure hormones on my brother's part. I think it was not so much about him wanting to see my little pre-pubescent body naked, but more about him not being alone while naked. If neither one of us had any clothes on, he wouldn't feel weird about going around in front of me nude.

Stefi - Good for you; enjoy!

U know what, I think you have it right. It can seem strange to be the only one naked. Glad you were there for your brother.

Great Story, kinda weird about your bothers need to see you naked. In the end tho, you got to the real point, which is to live naked and enjoy.

Yes, now that you mention it - by that time, he was taking mandatory showers with the other boys in his class so why would he want or need to see his little brother naked? Never considered that before.

But, yes, after a while I sure did come to appreciate it!

I'm a geezer as well and have enjoyed the clothes free life style from childhood, I do wear clothes when it's cool. I live in Arizona, It's hot here May through October, lots of clothes free time.

Oh yeah... I was in eastern Maricopa County for several years. If you know that county, you know the Superstition mountains. Used to drive up there, park somewhere off the road to Tortilla Flats, then walk out of sight of the road to a point overlooking the river, set down my wine, bread and cheese, take off all my clothes - and live! Yeah, I love Arizona!

Yep I know where you're talking about. I moved here 10 years ago from California because I like the heat. Many of my California friends think I'm nuts and won't come near Arizona during the summer.
