7 Tips for the Budding Nudist
Nudism can be liberating and fun. Here are some tips for the budding
July 19, 2010 |
You know those infamous adult magazine letters that start out “I never
thought this would happen to me, BUT….” Well, I never thought I would
become a nudist. Not in a million body-conscious years. As a journalist
I had covered events at my charming local nudist resort Cypress Cove (my
personal favorite was the year they had a benefit in which they donated
their clothes to the homeless) and while I always enjoyed myself I never
thought I’d join in.
Last year, though, when I was invited by Barbara and Dean Hadley, owners
of Cypress Cove, to participate in the record-setting skinny dip event I
went for it. After all, what was I doing with my time that could be
better than helping set a Guinness World Record…naked?
The event was fun, funny, exciting and had a great community spirit
about it – I’m thrilled to have taken part. Here are some tips for the
1. Practice. If you’re as self-conscious as I was, start out early and
give yourself some time to ease into the idea of being nude around
strangers. Lose your garments one item at a time over the course of
however long it takes you to feel comfortable. Once you’ve totally
stripped, after about an hour, you probably won’t want to get dressed
2. You are not alone. Remember, it’s not as though you’re the only nudie
here. Everyone else is naked. They will not notice anything about you
that you don’t notice about them.
3. Sun screen. You’re exposing parts of yourself that may never have
been sun-kissed before. Be careful with them.
4. Sun glasses. You will steal glances at other people’s pieces-parts,
not out of lechery; you just won’t be able to help it. Be discreet.
6. Towel. As Douglas Adams would say, always know where this is.
7. Addiction. Swimming naked in the pools at Cypress Cove was so
glorious – gliding through the cool, refreshing water, getting out of
the pool and having balmy breezes covering me instead of a wet, clingy
swimsuit – that it became quite a serious habit last summer. If you
enjoy it as much as I did you could have a new love for life…or at least
a summer fling.
