The 3 states of nudity – On becoming a nudist


As I am more often than not entirely naked at home, nudity has become a natural state, up to a point that I do not think about it. However, while hiking naked in the forest a while back, I came to think about my journey to nudism and without going into too deep a reflection on nudism, I came to realize there are 3 states of nudity that you encounter on your journey of becoming a nudist. Let’s go through them together, as it may enlighten you if you are not a nudist yet, and make you realize that becoming one is nothing special than just embracing nudity for what it is: a natural state!

Home Nudist

You become a home nudist when you can walk around your house entirely naked. At the beginning, you just walk from your bathroom to your bedroom, eventually grabbing a cup of coffee from the kitchen. Then, you will carry some activities, like cooking, vacuuming or watching TV. You may even go out in the garden, if you have one.

However, during all those activities, you realize you are naked. You may still feel some shame: “what if somebody was seeing me?” you may ask yourself. You are on the first state of nudity: you realize you are naked! Don’t get me wrong here, being naked feels good at that stage, you just realize you are naked, that’s just it. Nothing wrong or right about being naked, it’s just a conscious state.

Beach Nudist

For most people, the first encounter with social nudity is at the clothing-optional beach. You hesitate the first time you get naked on the beach. You feel everybody will look at you. Sometimes, you may even not get entirely naked or wrap a towel around your waist. “Who knows what can happen while I’m naked? “you may ask yourself (particularly if you are a man and think about a potential erection).

However, quickly, you will realize everybody is naked around you. Nobody watches you, everybody carries their activities entirely naked with no shame and no questions. You are entering the second state of nudity: you realize others are naked too! Once again, nothing wrong or right here. You are not judging others as others are not judging you, you are naked and feel good, and others are naked and feels good. However, you are still in a conscious state of nudity.

Resort Nudist

Then, one day, you go to a clothing-optional or nudist resort. You feel anxious and excited at the same time, feel some tension while registering, but are greeted with a smile and made comfortable. After having settled down, you get naked, wrap a towel around your waist and go to the swimming pool. It’s likely you will meet other nudists in the pool and potentially being pulled into a volley ball game or a walk around the premises, or any other activities done entirely naked with your new friends.

Before you realize what is happening, you will have spent a very good time, chatting, walking, playing, with people entirely naked, like yourselves. You are entering the third state of nudity: you do not think about being naked, you just feel good! You are now in an unconscious state of nudity, you feel good and do not think about being naked. When you meet others, you do not think of them being naked, they are just human beings, you do not think about them as naked persons, but as persons.

In the third state of nudity, you do not realize you are naked, you are just like you are and it feels comfortable. This is up to a point that, if you’re home and somebody rings the doorbell, you may open the door naked, or you want to fetch mail and you go to your letter box entirely naked, with potentially all neighbors being able to see you. And this is where, some nudists, like myself, are frustrated by laws that forbid us to be naked when and where we want, not because we are exhibitionists, just because nudity is a normal and natural state for us.

This is the state I am in almost every time I am naked, should it be at home, at the beach, at a nudist resort or on a hiking trail, or like now, while typing this post on my computer. While I cannot explain why nudity feels so good, I  embraced nudism years ago now and it just feels great to me. So, get naked, stay naked, live naked, and share the naked love with friends and family. Nude is not lewd, it’s awesome!

  1. Well said. I am Naked at home mostly on my days off. I go outside of my house to collect water to bathe and do laundry on certain days, and I am very comfortable with this. However, since I live in Trinidad and Tobago, where Nudity is seen as being sexual and perverted, I do so at quite a very big risk of being seen by neighbours and being judged wrongly. However, being Naked in everyday life is very liberating!!

    • Nice I am a single nudist man 53 living alone and naked at home and beach and my windows is always open to be seen naked by neighbours and something I get excited when I get caught naked many people loves to watch me and I love to show off myself naked.
      My dream is to work in a nudist resort to work and live with others naked and I was created by a lesbian nudist mom at home always naked and she taught how to show off naked

  2. You state the feeling well. I’m a third stage nudist, hiked nude, ate nude with a large group at a resort, played tennis nude (what a thrill!), swam, and worked nude. Nude is pleasurable, and I want to do it more all the time.

  3. I’m naked the entire time I’m at home and when in the midst of like-minded guys. I enjoy spending time in the pool with other nude men, sunning myself while naked, eating dinner with the guys and liking the hard ons I get spontaneously.

  4. I’m a nudist and Exhibitionist here in Oakland California USA. Hiked nude. Skinnydipped. Many times. Went tonthe mailbox naked and did the garbage nude. And drove nude
