You can choose to embrace nudity. You can choose to be a nudist. You can choose naturism as your preferred lifestyle. Well, I don’t think you can but could, should, and even must! Nudism or naturism is an incredible lifestyle. Natural, comfortable and totally normal! As you can probably guess, I’m bare naked as I’m writing this post in my home office. Not only, it’s my most comfortable outfit, it’s the one I choose daily by default, which makes it a no-choice decision, as it’s my default way of being.
If you’re a nudist or a naturist, whatever you call yourself, or just don’t put a nude label on you and just appreciate nudity, I wanted to share four simple actions you can take, daily, to enjoy more nude time and live a free life without the constraints of clothing. Up to a point where you can spend days without wearing any clothes and enjoy a wonderful nudist life. Get set, go!
All it takes is a decision: to get naked! Of course, you may have a ton of reasons not to get naked: I live with my parents, my mates won’t let me, people will think I’m crazy, what happens if people see me, it’s against the law in my country, etc. All reasons are valid reasons. However, they are also life-limiting reasons. If, like me, you really love nudism and naturism, just embrace what you love.
Some years ago, I was in the same situation. Questions kept popping into my mind. Should I, can I, get naked? What will people think? How will family and friends react? On the other, I felt so good naked. Not only I felt good, I felt better naked than clothed. I also discover many people felt like I felt. I was part of a larger community, as millions of people around the world are “nudists”, enjoying nude recreation. Hence, I made a decision: I chose nudity! I chose nudity because it’s who I really am, deep inside. I chose nudity because it’s natural and normal. I chose nudity because it was the right thing to do.
Still sitting on the fence, not sure how to start? Let me propose a simple yet powerful action: give away all your pajamas and start sleeping naked. The first few nights may be weird. You may feel aroused. You may be uncomfortable. All it takes is a few nights, a few weeks may be and then sleeping naked will be natural and you won’t be able to sleep with clothes on (this is also true with any activities that you start to do naked).
I chatted with people who have tried and reverted to pyjamas for warmth reasons. I discussed with friends who confessed they’re aroused when naked and cannot therefore sleep. I exchanged with textiles who think it not hygienic to sleep naked. To all, I’ve said that these are mental constructions based on fear and false assumptions. If you’re cold, add an extra blanket. If you’re aroused, make love. If you’re not clean, take a shower. Sleeping naked is the most natural way of sleeping and the only way for the body to regulate naturally its temperature. Under comfortable and warm sheets and blanket, nudity is the surest way to spend a good night sleep and start the next day well rested and naked!
The first day you spend entirely naked remains in your mind and body forever. On that day, you become almost religiously attached to nudism. This generally happens in a safe nudist environment, either at home or at a resort, where no risk exists that your nudity be interpreted for what it simply is. On that day, you may wish to live naked as often as possible. This, somehow, goes back to the first point of this post: decision.
As I often share, nudism is a journey, not a destination. A stage on this journey is naked living. What I call naked living is enjoying days without clothes and choosing nudity as the preferred outfit. Because we live in a clothed world, nudity is not accepted in many public places. However, we need to visit those places (shops, cinema, etc.). Therefore, I came with my personal definition of a naked day: a day when I can be naked for more than 22 hours. Not that I’m counting every single minute I’m naked or clothed, but I make a conscious decision to live naked and enjoy nudity as much as I can. I live naked!
This makes every possible day a nude day and it’s so enjoyable! It’s also a source of savings as I wear less clothes, hence need to purchase less and wash less. Although it’s not a primary reason, it’s an enjoyable side effect. As for sleeping, the first days will feel strange and a lot of questions will be popping in your mind. Just go with them, it’s normal. They will disappear or you may want to silence them by the comfort nudity offers. The best way I found to silence questions and doubts is to share nudism with others.
Tell the world you’re a nudist! Well, may be not the whole world, but your friends and family, your community and embark them with you on your journey. When people know and accept you’re a nudist, you don’t need to “hide” anymore. Nudist magazines and books on your coffee table become normal. Nude pictures hung on the wall become normal. Your own nudity becomes normal. I consider all of these normal, but for most people it’s not. By sharing nudism, nudity disappears as a topic.
I was sharing with Anna from A Naturist World that when nudity becomes accepted in everyday life and if we could mind our businesses entirely naked, nudism and naturism would disappear. If you were able to go shopping naked, to go to any beach naked or go for a walk naked, naturist federations would become useless, at least to defend social nudity.
To me, this what sharing nudism with friends, family and community does. It’s sharing with others that you consider nudity as normal and that you expect others to consider it the same. You’re not forcing others to come along in nudism. Just to accept that nudity is natural and normal, and that you may be naked more often than not, without shame or willingness to cause distress. This allows you to experiment your own nudity while people stay clothed around you. It feels weird the first few times, then it becomes your new normal, a wonderful normal of freedom, physically and mentally!
So, what’s your story? Do you believe every day can be a nude day? I would love to have your views in the comments below!
