What embarrassed a nudist / naturist?


I’ve read articles and seen video of non-nude people documenting their first times at nudist resorts or nude beaches. Usually, the subject of the piece is uncomfortable at first but eventually eases into it. The people they encounter are understanding, patient and supportive.

While scenarios such as these may be embarassing for the newbie, the already practicing nudists always come off as being unfazed. Willingly and happily naked near a person who is not used to seeing or being seen.

So, with this in mind, what would it take to embarass a nudist/naturist?

Their face/name being used in a study/documentary about nudism? Their image ending up on a dirty website withoit their consent? People they didn’t want to know now knowing? Rumors or whispers aboit them around town or at work?



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?


How to tell my teenage daughters I am a nudist?


I am Mexican and I grew up in a very prude home. Now, my husband and I would like to practice nudism more often, we are nude at home only whenever nobody else is around. We would like to become more open with our daughters but I am afraid of their reaction. When they were younger we used to be naked in front of them when taking a shower or when getting ready to leave home, but as they became teenagers they stopped showing themselves nude and we did the same. I really want them to understand that there is nothing wrong about nudity and I want them to grow confident and accepting their bodies. Any suggestions or experiences at home?


On behalf of a non-nudist friend. How does a newbie get over the initial shyness?


I am writing this question on behalf of a friend who has never tried going to a nudist location. She is very open to the idea but not ready to take the plunge. Please share your stories of getting over the initial shyness.


Really quite a blunt question for nudist women about penises and erections


…clearly intentional or not a male’s genitalia / penis sometimes has a mind of its own. I know in my own case while not aroused, I may appear more full shall we say then at other times. What is considered wrong, inappropriate? I think the same can be said for the physiological state of women’s or men’s nipples. Thanks! Sorry!

While certainly a blunt question, I think its a worthwhile topic to lay out there for all to comment. Particularly our female friends. Thanks!
