When nudity becomes the new normal


The day you join a nudist resort, club or beach, you enter a new world of freedom and respect. However, there’s something you may not know yet: nudity may become your new normal. The moment nudity becomes your first choice of clothing, your norm changes. Clothing is no longer required, except for protection, its first and main purpose. Nudity is then your norm, your new normal.

Becoming a nudist

A lot of first time nudists will eventually become lifetime nudists. Every nudist will talk about this wonderful feeling of freedom, as soon you understand nobody cares about how you look. Nudity becomes therefore an accepted state. Generally, this is when you start to stop thinking about being naked. You just are enjoying the moment, without clothes.

Of course, time will come when you need to get dressed again. A certain level of sadness will fill you, as you leave this wonderful state of freedom. Rapidly, if weather and security allow, you will feel the need to get naked again. This could be your home, your garden or any place that accepts your nudity.

After a couple of days or weeks, you will feel immensely better entirely naked than with any form of clothing, even light and small. This is the moment I call the new normal. Your nudity will feel natural, simple, a real no-brainer. Up to a point that you will feel the need to share this with your friends and family. This is also the moment when you will want to have some books on naturism to know more, to subscribe to the magazine of your local naturist federation and leave them on your coffee table, or to just ask your friends to join you in your naturist life.

The New Normal

And your new normal will be the beginning of a wonderful naturist life. Naturism is, IMHO, the most wonderful lifestyle. The levels of freedom, friendship and simplicity are just unmatched.

The only caveat is naturists are still a minority and nudism is not widely accepted. However, it’s growing with movements like Free the Nipple, that fights for men/women equal rights, or associations like APNEL, that fights for social nudity tolerance outside of enclosed naturist places, more and more people are exposed to non sexual nudity.

Four actions to take for all nudists/naturists:

  1. Become of member of your naturist federation and/or the naturist society.
  2. Be open to your friends and family about your lifestyle, there no shame in being a naturist and nothing to hide (literally).
  3. Be naked as much as possible, including at home, at the beach, during hikes, where social non-sexual nudity is permitted.
  4. Participate in naked events when possible like World Naked Bike Ride.

It may need another century to be able to chose nudity as a possible clothing option, but I hope we will get there and the next generations can freely chose to be naked whenever and wherever they want.

Try nudism and you will discover a new world, where nudity will soon become your new normal.

Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!

  1. Nudity is great, and so is “free the nipple” but don’t confuse them. Free the nipple is just about equality, not nudity. Topfree women are no more nude than barechested men.

  2. Originally, nudity was the norm. For tens of thousands of years humans were nude before clothes were created for warmth, decoration or social status. Cultures and religions made nudity shameful or sinful. It’s always been normal in some cultures, subcultures and families. It is normal once people overcome their conditioning that it is bad. Females are conditioned to wear make-up and certain style of clothes to look good. Nudity may never become normal everywhere because of the clothing industry, religions, etc. reenforcing the idea that it is unacceptable.

  3. It will take a long time for the culture to change. We need to proceed slowly. First there needs to be clothes free zones in large cities as there is in Paris. Second, there needs to be universal (all States) female top freedom.

    • Thank you for your comment John. I agree, this will take time. This starts with each of us, naturists, to promote and advocate social nudity.

  4. Me and my wife are going to a nudist camp for the first time this year. I am 56 and my wife is 54 are feelings are a little up and down but cant wait to go

  5. I discovered outdoor/social nudity at the beginning of this past summer. Hiking, swimming, and just plain relaxing under the sun with other like minded folks has been one of the most positive, liberating, stress relieving things I’ve ever done! It didn’t take long for me to reach the point where it felt natural and I could just enjoy the moment.

  6. My girlfriend and I were in Orlando on vacation and decided on a whim to go to a nudist beach which turned out to be located inside an actual nudist community with people who actually lived and raised their families there… it was extremely enlightening and easily the best time either one of had ever had really liberating to just be free without fear of judgement can’t wait to go back really want to learn and experience more

  7. unfortunately where I live its at least an hour and a half or more to any place that I can be nude at other then at home. I’m over 70 now and would just love to experience the freedom before I meet my maker.

    • Don’t worry Barry; stay naked at home..it takes 20 years off your life!! I walk around all day naked in the house and in my back yard with a fantastic “woody” that’s close to 7 inches long. Have Fun…Ralph J. Charette 414-388-7303 Germantown, Wisconsin 53022

  8. My sweetheart and I just did a 5-day cruise, including an island stop during which I was naked for the day — in the Bahamas! Most comfortable vacation ever!

  9. I truly dislike feeling the need to be textile due to other people being unable to control their discomfort, or their being offended (unable to control their emotions). I would love nothing more than the right to be nude on my own property without the expense of visual barriers and on public lands that my tax dollars support.

    • In English for the non German readers: “A nice post and exactly my attitude. Unfortunately, I live out my passion on my own. My Wife doesn’t dare.”

      Vielen Danke Ralf!

  10. Clothing no longer feels normal to me. When it is warm enough, and there is no need to leave the house, I can go days without getting dressed. It was during one of those periods that I once checked my mail in mid-afternoon and suddenly realized that I forgot I was naked. Nobody saw me, but I do try harder to avoid that (I do not live in a nudist resort – yet). You’re right, there is a slight feeling of sadness when I need to put clothes on for any reason besides protection.

    All of our friends and family are aware that we’re nudists/naturists. Only one couple has joined us from time to time and we sometimes enjoy nude fishing on their boat. We got new neighbors on either side of our house and I notified them that we are often nude in the back yard. Both stated they are fine with it and have proven good for their word. Too bad they don’t participate 🙁

    There is always a TNS and/or AANR magazine around the house. I have left an AANR magazine in a dentist’s office (I need to do that more often and leave them in more places).

  11. Speaking about religion and nudity, i had a surprise Yesterday. I went to a nude beach and in the parking lot was the bus from our church,A big blue bus with the church name and phone number on the side . Around 60 from our church were sunning and swimming nude,We all had a great time and had a beach BBQ in the evening. I got invited to the next get together after finding out i was also a naturist

  12. I’ve been a nudist my whole life. For twenty years my wife and I helped run a family park in Washington state.
    Now since we moved to California the wife feels she does not have the body for a nudist park. Such a waste of my naked life, If we had a “Family” nudist park in San Luis Obispo, Ca I would go but there really is not a place to my liking for over 200 miles North or South of hear. I miss the friends I could be making

  13. […] So, as a matter of fact, you choose to be a nudist because you find the lifestyle pleasant, comfortable and inline with your beliefs. One of the interesting facts about nudism is the more you get naked in personal and social settings, the more you need to get naked in personal and social settings. What I mean is that getting naked makes the nudist. Up to a point, that nudity become the new normal as I described in a previous post. […]

    • Unfortunately it’s true. The more you undress, the more you want to undress, after 5 years of nudism, I have a hard time putting my clothes on. Nudism is addictive and I am completely addicted and there is no cure. If I am naked, everything is fine, but if I get dressed my thoughts are only one: to undress quickly and as soon as possible, and as soon as the opportunity comes, the “striptease” is inevitable. Nudity is now a necessity for me. Personally, feeling the need to undress I think it is a healthy and natural thing that with nudism we return to perceive, but it is also a disadvantage, because we live in a nudophobic society.

  15. Having read all the comments here the one thing that there are two things that we all agree on 1, nudity is just a state of undress which is our natural state an once you have gone naked there’s no going back 2, the more you are naked the more you seem to want ( well is for me ) on a personal lever as soon as i get home the clothes are off an donce done the stress of the day has gone and i just seem to be able to relax more. Its been great for my wife who before we became naturists had a very low self esteem of her self now though she people will accept her as she is which has given the the confidence that she so needed and lacked as afar as im now concerned clothes are very over rated and really only need to be worn if at all is either for warmth or protection . I do think that more should try it and hope that one day once again it will become the norm.

  16. I have read many posts and I agree with most who offered there opinions . My name is Ted from central Florida. My wife and I have been nudists ( mostly at home ) for many years. We visited other couples at there homes and enjoyed every minute. I lost her in 2017 to cancer. A few months before she passed she made me promise to live every day to its fullest. So here I am single enjoying every day wearing only flip flops and a smile. I have been seeking companionship with like mind to join me in my passion for living a nudist lifestyle. I find it hard being a single man to gain exceptance at resorts without raising some eyebrows. My wife and I were together for 42 years all of which were spent nude at every opportunity. I’m 6ft4in,243 going on 73 with the attitude of a 50 year old. I feel fantastic for my age and everything still works lol. I’m writing this in hopes of finding a nudist female to enjoy the rest of our god givin time together as nudists.

  17. Done it a few times on a nudist beach.
    PlayaLinda beach in Florida
    Felt better the more I go
    Always nude at home and love it.
