My ex-wife first introduced me to Naturism but I had been resistant to the idea until finally learning how much happier and accepting of myself I could be without clothing. Since then I have considered myself a Naturist for five years, my first experience taking place at the local muse beach. While it was relaxing to enjoy the sunshine free of clothing there I was not content to simply spend all of my time lying down. Late one Summer I summoned up the courage to try a few hikes where I was reasonably sure I could do so nude without encountering anyone along the trail. Since then I try to make good of any opportunity to hike nude and try for longer hikes.
|Who I'd like to meet||
I would like to meet people nearby who like to be active while nude; not simply lounging on beach, but going on hikes, taking a swim, camping, maybe even forming a group for nude yoga classes, or people interested in starting a Naturist musical group. I've been toying with the idea of starting a Naturist punk rock band, so finding other musicians who wouldn't be afraid to practice nude would a good start.
