BC Interior


Looking for a nudist group in the Thompson-Okanagan area of BC. As a home nudist (when possible), I’d like to take the next step, unfortunately my spouse isn’t into nudism.


First Time nude going to a nudist beach


Hi , i live in Montreal and there is a nudist beach near my house. I wasn’t raised as a nudist and i never really thought about being one myself until i passed by the beach and saw how nice life would be like that. From that day, i started practicing nudism in my house (i live alone), but i have never been nude in-front of anyone in public.

I want to try and go to the nude beach, but i am afraid of being stared at (i am not confident with my body) or doing something wrong and being hated.

The beach near my house is very crowded so i don’t think many people will look at me in particular, but my questions are:

-is it ok if i don’t get nude as soon as i get there? like if i stay dressed the first few hours and then take my swimsuit off?

-If i get an erection, what should i do?

-do people look or stare at others while at the beach?

-What are the things i shouldn’t do?

-if i stay dressed, is it ok do initiate a conversation with a nude person, or do i have to be nude to talk to others?

Any recommendations or suggestions will be greatly appreciated! thank you :)


meet nudists in my area


I want to meet other nudists in my area. I live in central California in the city of Fresno. I want to meet other nudists. I’m young – 23 years old- and am male. I’m more interested in nudism now than ever and want to meet other nudists and make friends with them. I’m not sure about finding a nudist girlfriend too. How can I meet other nudists where I live at? I don’t know if I’ll go to the nudist meetup group close to my home soon, but I would love to meet nudists. Where can I meet them at, and how?


Nudist household


Hello, I have been thinking now of having a nudist household. I’m 23 years old, and a single male. I’m going to post about being nude at home now and how to have that change later, so anyone here may answer questions on both now and later in home nudism. Here I go.
OK, so I still live with my parents. It’s because I have yet to find a home on my own and get my own job. I keep being nude for when sleeping when I have no guests for now and when no one at my home is around. Does that make me a nudist?
I am confining being nude to when no one is around for now because one morning last April my mom came into my room and I was still naked covered in a sheet underneath and noticed I was naked. She told me why I undress for sleeping and to sleep in underwear. So now I will just at least have underwear on in the morning if my parents or brother need me in the morning and come to my room so I don’t get caught being naked.
I’m glad to read of others’ stories of new to nudism yet their parents are also very conservative and close-minded on nudism and with concerns similar to mine.
However, when I move on my own I plan on being naked as much as possible. I know nudism usually starts at home and is great to begin at home.
I want to make a nudist household at home when I am on my own. Should I make/buy a sign that my household is a nudist one so people can know, as for guests who come visit me?
I live in central California in a city called Fresno, a semi-desert place suitable for being naked for some six to eight months of the year. There is a nudist meetup group near my residential place. I can drive, but I don’t know if I will go to that meetup group soon. If I go now I will most likely if not surely have to let my parents know but am not sure how to explain it to them without hesitance. I can go now without involving my parents. But then again, I should probably wait until I move out of my parents’ house and then afterwards once I frequent the meetup group often tell them about it. I wonder what’s the best option here on this nudist meetup group, any suggestions?
I plan on finding a girlfriend and hopefully introduce her to nudism if she is not a nudist when dating her. I will then ask any questions about partners and nudism once I date the girlfriend.
So, while living with my parents still, and have to confine being nude to when alone, should I just wait until I move out on my own to attend nudist venues and events?
Once I am out on my own, when someone rings the doorbell or knocks on my door, I can answer the door clothed at first and shortly thereafter undress if they don’t mind, or answer the door nude if anyone is fine with that. Should I then also let the people know that I am a nudist and am usually or just about always naked at home so they know?
I don’t want to have to dress just because I have guests at my home. Well, if any friend or family member, or could be a neighbor unless I live in the countryside when on my own and homes are further away, is fine with me being nude when visiting me, I will be naked when those visitors are visiting me, or else have to be dressed until they leave, especially for non-nudist guests. The same applies when visiting friends or family. Hopefully that is correct of me when at my own home and having guests/visiting friends and family.
When I get my own place, can I then meet other nudists and make friends with them, at a nudist setting?
I’m considering raising children as nudists. I hope me, my wife and our children are naked together when possible at home and nudist places and events.
What happens if I have any guests arriving at my home when I am on my own and with wife/children and the guests arrive at my home by surprise or emergency?
If I can no longer keep nudism secret from my parents within the next 14 months, I have decided to tell them about my interest in nudism within the time I can no longer keep it secret. If that is not the case, though, I may not tell them of me being a nudist until it’s a more permanent part of my life. I’ve read other nudists who were raised in textile households and are adults with conservative parents on nudism and told their parents in a good manner. Maybe I should be like that to my parents when I can no longer keep it secret from them. I don’t plan on keeping nudism forever from anyone I know at least, and this includes my parents. So, when I am on my own home, and let’s say I am talking to my parents on the phone. They want to visit me. Should I just let them know that it’s my house my rules and therefore I am naked as much as I want and can in it, and see if they’re fine or not with the idea? If they are not okay with that they can simply not come over. And for visiting my parents, I’m not sure about how to handle the situation of me as a nudist and raising a nudist family.
I am not wanting to stop being a nudist in my entire life.
When I am out on my own, can I participate then in nude recreation?
In my own home, any guests are also welcome to be nude when visiting me.
Please don’t delete this post on concerns/questions on nudism like they did on Reddit, thank you. This is my first post of questions I’m posting on this ask a nudist site, I’ll post more later. Please give me appropriate responses to these questions/concerns on a nudist household. Thanks.


What if I have quite a bit of questions about nudism?


Hello, I am 23 and single male. I’ve been “into” nudism for about 15 months now. I discovered all about the joys of nudism in July 2014 when I researched about it, then decided to start in October 2014. I’ve typed how to become a nudist on Yahoo Answers and gotten quite a bit of good responses, but it wasn’t enough. So, after getting some concerns last May, I decided to go on a nudist site called netnude.com for asking nudists questions there. I typed quite a lot on a section “new to naturism” and got answers to some questions. OK, however some questions have gotten unanswered. Then, I heard of a page on Reddit on nudism and discovered that just over a month ago. I typed in information on nudism and that I had concerns and questions still, but the problem is that the moderator of that page removed my post. And it had questions left unanswered! Well, if I have quite a bit of questions, like how to be naked without getting in trouble by family or friends especially, where to swim naked, how to let family and friends know I’m interested in nudism, how to participate in nude recreation, what to do if who you’re living with doesn’t approve of being naked in front of them, how to stop worrying about what others think of me being a nudist completely, letting others know of a nudist household to make, what to do when guests are at your nudist household and you visit friends and family, finding nudist resorts and clubs, and going to nudist events. Many people have other concerns like what about if they are a family with young children, if a man gets an erection, or having a reluctant partner, but that’s not me – I know the solutions to those concerns/problems. I’m not here for porn. When I asked a question on Yahoo Answers on my nudist concerns someone responded that I can send them an e-mail through Yahoo Answers but I don’t know where to go for that. I’ve read tons of others who got interested in nudism and had concerns, too, and those are similar concerns to mine. Please don’t answer about my concerns and questions here – I want to know if I should post different questions on this site in different tags depending on what topic(s) it’s about, or if I should send an e-mail if someone gives me their e-mail and I can send it to them and let them know it’s me on Ask A Nudist – thanks. So should I post those things I have questions and concerns on related to nudism on here?
