I recall thinking to myself that I’m a “nudist.” Being at a club, it doesn’t matter if someone is naked or not. They needed to show us round the resort but astonishingly my wife would not have anything to do with such a tour. We talked to a number of the other guests and we loved our time there so much we really hated to leave. -John YHOOPESTON, Illinois My lovely wife and I frequently vacation in Michigan. By this I mean that we were staying nude sometimes after a shower and then we began being naked before bedtime. My wife was unwilling but she agreed that there was no damage since we have been married more than 35 years.

After I started to do my work around the house naked.

My wife was surprised when I came downstairs naked one day and I could tell her hesitation. I, however, loved this new feeling…sitting in the sun, wind blowing…it was incredibly refreshing and I said, “why not.” So, at first she didn’t need to go, but after a second she said sure. I’m walking in my birthday suit through dozens of women and men. Swimming sans clothing was a first for me also…and it was another wonderful experience. -Craig JNew Jersey Our Bare Venture When I was a boy the words “naked” or “nude” weren’t part of my family’s vocabulary. Faculty, work, marriage, kids, divorce; all flew by in what seemed to be a brief span of time.

Since then, I’ve had many “naked experiences.” As much as I cherish each if them, they all go back to the day I first decided nudism was going to be a part of my own life and the nighttime I shared it with the love of my life.

I’m a better person for it — happier, more understanding, more accepting.

Anyhow we’ll begin writing our representatives to alter the laws in the Michigan National Lakeshore so that folks do not have to feel like criminals if they violate no one.

I do not understand why with the membership your organizations has, nobody has come up with a plan to legalize some regions of Michigan to be clothing optional.There were only half a dozen people there, but not surprisingly our entrance was noticed.One young man let out a whoop when we walked in, and he quickly got naked (though his girlfriend made him get dressed again – I’ve often thought that I hoped he dumped her).She and our hostess then compared breast jobs and discovered they’d had the same plastic surgeon in Atlanta. But the part I really have yet to figure out is how – or whether – we paid for our drinks.We went without clothes, therefore without pockets, therefore without wallets, therefore without money.While the first social nudist encounter is a significant event, I really consider two “first times” when I think of my nudist life. Anxiety about ridicule, humiliation, and not being who others wanted me to be.
