How does nudism affect one’s libido in the bedroom?


I’ve wanted to try the nudist lifestyle for a while, and am “getting up the nerve” to plan my first experience. One thing I’m concerned about is how becoming so comfortable to be naked with the opposite sex (I’m a male) in a non-sexual way will affect my libido in the bedroom. In other words, can nudism desensitize someone from becoming sexually aroused (in the bedroom)? I know the naked body isn’t the only way to become sexually aroused, but it IS a significant part of a couple’s intimacy. For you married and committed couples out there, how has being nudists affected your sex life?


How do nudists react to the curious or sexually motivated?


Do real nudists mind people who show up to beaches or resorts who are just there for a kink or thrill? Or are they annoyed by them? Are they easy to spot?


How do nudists / naturists handle people they meet who they discover are just there for a sexual kink?


How does a practicing nudist / naturist who is at a nudist beach or resort etc… and interacts with a person (or couple or group) who through observation or conversation finds out the strangers are not nudists or even curious about the lifestyle but are just there for a voyeuristic sexual thrill?

Is that offensive? Or a nuisance? Or does it sort of come with the territory?

I imagine I’d find it frustrating if the people sat next to me on the beach were giggling and inappropriate and obnoxious.


Nudist Photography


Something I’ve been contemplating and not sure I have an answer (if there is one). I know nudists have been wrestling with this for awhile:

What is the difference between nudist photos / videos and pornography?

Portrayal of a any sexual act would be one obvious answer. But does it end there?

A lot of the sites on the Internet claim to be nudist when, in reality, they are pornographic.

I’d be curious to hear everyone’s thoughts on this one.


sexual association and nudism


Growing up, sex and nudity were taboo. I think that this created a thought process that related nudity to sex. Hence if you were naked it was sexual and vice versa. I have always enjoyed being naked, but always had the idea in the back of my mind that if people knew, they would think I was some sort of pervert. It was not until I realized that the ideals that I grew up with, that you didn’t talk about nudity, body parts or sex made me feel this way. Your thoughts?
