Its tough to understand just when or where my first bare experience was like except being really young playing in the water
I used to be a part of a club where my favourite area and task was to swim laps in the pool. It felt free being there without a swimsuit. Back then work used up much of my time, yet, those trips were well worth the drive because it was a area which enabled me to become more socially & spiritually connected with the few really special people there. It was nice to attend an event; although it was the nature and quiet times I appreciated the finest. Being there appeared like a 'little part of paradise'.
if only the people knew of this better place just around the bend! My philosophy of naturism is that all of us are born bare because this is natures way of saying it's entirely natural to be nude. It is also the most comfortable way to be too. Being able to swim without clothing and to feel the cool water, the winds, and open air, even the raindrops -- this has been among the most freeing experiences Ive ever known. It is particularly fine in the common business of special friends.
After reaching beach babes got a better sense of myself and started accepting my imperfections. When the 40s came around, I stop caring so much about what other folks might be saying or believing. Being a section of the naturist community has taught me to be more accepting of myself and also of others. I consider there is a whole lot to be got from this, i.e. dropping the masks of insecurity and showing there's nothing to hide. This has also made me a happier person.
If it weren't for a longtime mutual friend, I'd never known the Clothesfree website existed either. Since then I Have learned a lot by reading the varied subjects discussed here. The great majority of people here are open-minded, non judgmental, informative, caring and supporting of naturism. Being here makes me feel part of an extended  nudist family
