Getting Social

Always wearing a smile, if nothing else

"If I needed a ride to the airport, would you be able to help?" my neighbor asked with a sheepish grin. "Of course", we replied. "What if my aunt needed a ride?". Still, "Sure, glad to be of help." "What if it wasn't the airport?". And that's how I wound up driving a blind woman to a pot luck social at a nudist club. My wife had to work, and my neighbor was simply being silly about the whole issue. He knew that we were pretty blase' about nudity, when he heard our shock over how he and his wife always wore suits in their own backyard pool, and well, his aunt is blind anyway. Nonetheless, this was a new experience for me, a nude social, and I was a bit nervous. I was assured that I could stay as dressed as I wanted to be, but my false bravado quickly proclaimed indignation at doing such a thing. It was all bluster on my part, though.

Edith is a hoot! Maybe it was my nerves, but I've rarely laughed so much on a car ride. Edith claims that on average nudists are much funnier that most folks, and if she is any measure, nudists must be the most friendly folks too. She got into nudism as her sight was fading. She felt that in losing her sight, she gained a appreciation for fully sensing her environment. She also philosophized about realizing inner beauty, as outer beauty became somthing that she could no longer see, and how advancing in age lended a greater sense of acceptance to her option of attire. "I've been hugged by more naked men since I turned 60, than any young hottie." We arrived at the club and parked the car. "Promise me were at the club. If I get naked by mistake in the Kroger parking lot again, they're going to have me comitted." It was a joke, but I recognized her need for a trusted guide, and was glad I could help. We got out of the car, and before I knew it, she was out of her clothes. This got real for me, and I had to decide wether to get nude now or not. I chickend out. It seemed easier to walk in as I was, fully dressed, but after less than 5 steps I realized that getting naked then and there couldn't feel any more strange than being fully clothed with a naked lady in tow. So, I got naked, and it felt normal, almost disappointingly so. I was more concerned with what to do with my car keys, than my nudity. (keys under the seat, but roll the window down a bit just in case the doors lock themselves). And just like that, I walked confidently into a party of strangers with a charming lady on my arm, all of us completly naked. It was almost anti-climatic telling my wife the tales of our journey. Sure, it was a nude adventure, but the highlights centered more around the buffet. (Best pepperjack stuffed meatballs ever.) Everyone was most welcoming. I was more embarrassed by how nice everyone was, than by my nudity. Our new friend Edith has an open offer for ride services any time, and as payment she declared our neighbor's pool a nude zone any time she comes by. (And our neighbor has agreed).

Happy Birthday

We decided to throw a 'birthday suit birthday party' for dear old dad on his 80th birthday next summer.

A long time fan of being in the buff whenever he could, dad only recently publicly claimed his title as a 'nudist'. While the response has been mostly positive, his wife has always been uncomfortable with his recreational uniform. She has been a good enough sport to escort him (albeit clothed) to nude events, but it's a compromise that ironically leaves them feeling more distant from each other. By scheduling a nude soiree to happen next summer we thought it would give time for any attendees who would have issues leaving their clothes at the door to work on their comfort levels, and to think of different strategies to adjust to the dress code. We hope that by demonstrating nude comfort with typically clothed loved ones, we can put dad's wife at ease with his nudism. It's been interesting to see the reactions of the invitees, and how having an octogenarian as the guest of honour has given cover to particular objections. More than once I heard, "I could never go to a naked party. Oh, it's an 80th birthday? That's great, can I bring a friend!" Hopefully, his wife will become more at ease with recreational nudity and realize that nudity seems to be less of an issue when you're nude too. If not, at least we'll have a great party!

We'd love to hear tales and advice of how other nudists were able to win over textile committed family members.


I wanted to experience NUDISM with someone who was in the NUDIST LIFESTYLE. Since there are no clubs or NUDISTS resorts in the BAHAMAS WHERE I LIVE I contacted an older NUDIST LADY who lived in the U. S. A. and was a DEVOTE NUDIST and invited her to visit the BAHAMAS, I wanted to experience NUDISM for the first time with a person who knew more than I about this interesting lifestyle. She was an older lady and came for a visit. We both ENJOYED BEING TOTALLY NAKED TOGETHER and spent many pleasant days exploring the many secluded beaches here in the BAHAMAS. We went for long beach walks together, I listened as she explained to me THIS HEALTHY,WHOLESOME, BEAUTIFUL LIFESTYLE. I wanted to remember this experience and took many WONDERFUL PHOTOS of her [ and had photos taken of US TOGRTHER NAKED, many of them I have ENLARGED, IN FRAMES IN MY HOUSE and DISPLAY THEM PROUDLY.] Since then I joined AANR and have to say IAM A PROUD NUDIST and AANR MEMBER. I have met many NUDISTS who have visited the BAHAMAS and over the years have become LIFELONG FRIENDS. I am still in contact with this WONDERFULL OLDER NUDIST LADY who gave me the courage to give NUDISM A TRY. I often look at the photos taken the day of my FIST SCOCIAL NUDIST EXPERIENCE and remember hot LOVELY IT WAS TO ENIOY THE FEELING OF NUDIST FREEDOM WITH A DEVOTE OLDER NUDIST LADY. Brian Clark

Social Nudism

My first time experiencing nudism: I was at one of the many secluded beaches here in the BAHAMAS and saw a group of 8 naked people, all older couples. As I walked by they waved, smiled and said Hi. They looked so relaxed and happy. I thought what a wonderful sight NAKED IN NATURE.

I wanted to join them, so I removed my bathing suit and joined them. ALL OF THEM SMILED AND CLAPPED HANDS. I spent a BEAUTIFUL, PLEASANT DAY WITH MY NEW FOUND NUDIST FRIENDS.

Since then I have been a LONG TIME NUDIST and AANR MEMBER. Over the years I have met MANY NUDISTS VISITING THE BAHAMAS and we have become LIFE LONG FRIENDS through our enjoyment of NUDISM.

My First Social Experience

My first time was June 2012, when I was staying in Columbia, SC for 4 weeks of training. Once I was finished for the day, I would return to my hotel room and strip off all my clothes and be naked in my room for the rest of the day.

One Saturday, I went on the Web to see if I could find I nudist resort or a nude beach. To my surprise I found a nudist RV park 45 minutes outside Columbia named Cedar Creek. I called the office to let them know I was planning to visit by myself and they happily said see you when you get here, just call when you arrive at the gate.

On the way to the nudist resort I was anxious and a little nervous at the same time. Once inside the resort I met Melissa and paid the day fee. She made me feel very welcome and went back to my car to get naked. It was such a great feeling to be naked outdoors,feeling the hot sun on my skin.

I walked down to the pool and everyone was so friendly. I then walked the nature trail to the creek and met two very nice couples. They asked if my wife was with me but told them she was back home and I was in the area for school.

The one couple, I ended up hanging out with them for most of the day. It was a great feeling to be with other nudists just relaxing and having a conversation without a care in the world.

Since my first experience, I went to another nudist resort to run a 5k at Cypress Cove in Florida. After the race I met some great people and plan to go back. This April I plan to go back to Cedar Creek to run my second nude 5K. I can't wait.

I love running nude. I just wish I could do it more often.
