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 :)


Will Cherry Grove, Fire Island be nude again in summer 2016?


Last summer 2015 Cherry Grove, FI was nude again w/ no issues from police. I’ve heard rumblings that they may prevent nudity in Cherry Grove & the Pines this year 2016. Apparently late last season park police were telling people that they may have to cover up soon. I’ve seen no official announcement from either the Parks department or the police. Has anything changed & not bee announced?

Do first timers go to nudist resorts or nude beaches?


There is a nude beach in my area but I’d have to do some digging online to find if there’s a nearby resort.

Some non-nude people I know have tried the beach but a resort seems like a much bigger commitment, a much bigger plunge.

Do many first timers and newbies try a full nudist resort first? Or are they more for the already initiated?
