Is there a stigma with being nudist and enjoying the sensuality of it?
As nudists we all agree that being nude feels natural and it’s just down right comfortable. What about the enjoyment received by the feelings of sensuality? I know 95% of the time when I get naked it is simply because I cannot stand being in clothes any more and I just need to unwind and relax. By Hollywood’s standards I do not fit the mold of perfection…far from it. But this does not mean that there are times when I feel damn good about my self and (dare I say it) I feel sexy. Okay that last part was after I watched 300 Rise of an Empire while working out and felt more like a Spartan.
Yet still, I know the artist in me finds great beauty and sexuality with the human form. I enjoy being naked, I enjoy seeing other people enjoying themselves being naked. I do not find myself driven with lust, but I do find a certain sense of sensual enjoyment by being surrounded by the nude form. Sensual as in, each of my senses are experiencing some form of enjoyment from the experience. My eyes enjoy the beauty of the human form. My ears enjoy hearing nude people enjoying themselves. My sense of touch is aroused by the breeze of the wind, the warmth of the son, and yes the embrace of nude friend or lover. My sense of taste is heightened because my other senses are experiencing blissful enjoyment. So wine tastes sweeter, foods taste richer.
Being nude removes the barriers of class and social status. It presents to the world who I am in all my imperfect glory. A blond male, who is slightly overweight and loves to laugh and smile. I am not suggesting that when I get nude I am over whelmed with a state of mind filled with sex, and lust filled deviant thoughts. But I will not deny there is a sense of sensuality that comes with being nude alone and socially that I find divine.
