One of the most famous quotes from Hamlet, where Prince Hamlet debates with himself on the virtues of death and suicide. Now I'm not debating on this but rather to be clothed or not . . . .
I'm a home naturist, never been to a social gathering or been to nude public area. I would love to try out social nudity but as I have a wife who frowns upon the aspect of social nudity, I will most probably never get to go. But the question remains and if I take a deeper look at myself another questions pop into my mind . . . Why???? Why be nude? Why be nude in public?
I never had the privileged of growing up where nudity was accepted. In fact my folks are dead against it. And even our society frowns upon it. There are not many places to go to and late in 2014 the first official nude beach for South Africa was declared. So where did the desire come from to be nude? I don't know. I just feel more comfortable being nude than with clothes on. I don't have a 1 point thesis let alone a 10 point thesis on why being nude is more comfortable, it just is for me.
I'm blessed in the sense that my wife allows me to be nude in and around the house. So won't join me but at the same time she does not try to persuade me to put on clothes. My kids are also fine with me being nude and from time to time they even join me.
Why do I want to experience social? It is basically the fellowship of meeting with other naturist in a naturist setting that I’m really intrigued about. In the end I would much prefer going to a private resort or something than go to a public beach. Some resorts though are clothing free and not clothing optional and I also think this is one reason why wife does not want to go.
Then we must not even start on the religious viewpoint of nudity, this in itself can be another topic.
And so in conclusion to be nude or not to be nude . . . . I chose to be nude!
