Nudism & Health

The picture of health

About a year ago, I was asked to be a sort of tour guide at the resort. It was out of season, and a local artist wanted to take some photos for a piece on body images. She felt that because nudity would be involved, and because there wouldn't be many people around that this would be an ideal time and place. She was right, but with the exception of the weather. It was a cold an dreary day, and even the two nudists there were fully dressed. We took them to some of the most picturesque sites on the property, and once the photographer settled on the best venue, she simply stated, "ok, everybody nude." She herself put down her camera and all her clothes as well. She had such confidence and determination that I almost felt embarased to have been clothed in the first place. The subject of the shoot, however was not as confident. She couln't bring herself to take off a singe piece of clothing. The photographer remarked that this was one of the most unique nude photo shoots in that everyone was naked, except the person on camera. We laughed and talked about how this might become the subject of her next series; nude photography, just not nude subjects. The photographer admitted that she was nervous of going to a nudist location, and didn't expect to go nude herself. She said that it was that fear of being nude herself that made her want to take her own clothes off then and there, and to confront that fear. She admitted that she was faking this confidence. It was with this admission that the not-yet-nude model decided that she too would fake some confidence, and she got herself out of her clothes. It was a beautiful shoot documenting the initial discomfort that the model had as she couldn't find a place for her hands other than to cover herself up, to the final shots of her standing boldly bare to the world, fists on her hips with an expression that she hadn't a fear in the world. I never saw the pictures, but I did see the model again at the open house this season. This time it was the model who was blissfully unadorned, as she announced that after the shoot that she had decided to spend more time with less clothes as a way to become more accepting of her body. She said that years of dieting and fads had never given her the body that she could feel comfortable in, but getting naked, that was the transformation that finally made her feel good about what she was wearing.

NUDISM

IF GOD ONLY WANTED US WITH CLOTHES ON HE WOULD HAVE DRESSED US BEFORE BIRTH. NUDISM IS THE MOST WONDERFUL AND FREE FEELING. IT IS NATURAL, NATIVES OF LONG AGO WERE ALL NUDE. REALIZE THE SKIN ONOUR BODIES HAS TO BREATHE.CLOTHES OBSTRUCT THAT BREATHING. I AM 92 AND A CONFIRMED NUDIST, NEVER WEAR CLOTHES AROUND THE HOUSE AND BELONG TO A NUDIST COLONY.
I WOULD LOVE TO MEET OTHER NUDISTS AND INVITE THEM INTO MY HOME FOR DRINKS ETC.

Reduces stress and Improves Health

For over two years,I was my Mom's primary caregiver.She required a lot of assistance due to COPD and congestive heart failure.I had many people who were surprised when I casually mentioned having to routinely bathe her.They would ask if the nudity made me uncomfortable.I always said "No,it's just the human body,besides she bathed me when I was little.No big deal."
Whenever I had time away to recharge,I would relax in the nude.It was part of my recovery and now it's the way I reduce stress.I added this to my 30 year habit of sleeping nude.I sleep well most of the time.I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great night's sleep.
Once my Mom passed,I got a check up and my doctor said my blood pressure and cholesterol readings were the best he'd ever seen for someone nearing 50.Need I say more about the health benefits of being clothes free? I think not.

Nudism and Mental Health

I really believe that nudity can have a very profound effect on your physical and mental health. I work in the world of suits and ties. Such clothing is restrictive and uncomfortable. I look forward to going home after work and removing my clothes, grabbing something to drink and retiring onto my backyard deck and relaxing. The sun and light breeze on my skin is both exhilarating and relaxing. My neighbors are aware of my preference for nudity, and are okay with it.

Being nude after a long and stressful day at work washes away that stress. I relax. I find that after a week of stress at work, if I spend a day at my nearest nudist resort, hiking the trails, or reading a good book by the lake, I go home completely relaxed. I only wish that I could go every weekend.

I began practicing nudism at home when I was a teenager. My mother was okay with my nudity; she found nothing wrong with it. She was okay with it in the proper setting.

I really believe that nudity can have a profound effect on one's physical and mental health. Clothes are inhibiting physically. You can certainly exercise much more freely without them. It is good for the fresh air to bathe your skin. Mental relaxation is also a benefit that comes with nudity.

If nudity were practiced more widely, I believe that the world would be a better place to live in. Body acceptance would lead to acceptance of other differences. They say that clothes define the person. That may be true in a negative sense. Nudity takes away that feeling of superiority that expensive clothes can bring.

Nudity can have profound effect on one's physical and mental well-being. And nudists are a very welcoming group of people. So, as Benjamin Franklin and Henry David Thoreau knew so well, take that"air bath" and let it cleanse you physically, mentally and spiritually.

Nothing Like It!

I am a 61 year old male who recently visited a nudist resort with my girlfriend up in Orlando. It is so relaxing that I plan on going back to the nudist resorts in the near future.

Pulling into the parking lot - stripping totally naked - then going into the lobby to check in. WOW - what a hoot! We went in the pool - the hot tub - and had dinner in the bar - totally nude. We met other people - some younger - some older - ranging from cops, teachers, businessmen ... to a retired Federal judge.

We took a long walk - everyone we saw was 100% nude and friendly as could be. The next morning, we went to breakfast - totally nude. Imagine walking into Dennys naked, except everyone there is naked!

It isn't a sex thing - it is exciting just to enjoy being naked and see so many other people naked.

We are truly enjoying the nudist lifestyle and plan on expanding our horizons to a multitude of other clubs!
