Social Nudism from a Teen's POV

As an typical teenager in America, there are many challenges that I face on an almost daily basis. Overall I am quite happy with my current, no matter the changes that have occurred in the past several years. I now consider myself to be in the peak of my entire life. I've reached the best point where I 'm finally discovering who I am and what my true intent is. Therefore, I think that there are various influences that have shaped my life for the better. I owe a great deal to my friends, family, and change of lifestyle.

I've taken a solid curiosity about nudism inside the last year as well as a half. I love the sensation of being free and not needing to be concerned about society's everyday hassles. When nude, I feel more like myself. The single time I feel out of place is when I'm around others who usually do not share my same sense of independence. This really is clear however, since not everybody is comfortable with their nudity in the way in which that I 'm. Part of being a naturist to me is respecting others and the way in which they choose to call home and what they opt to wear or not to wear. I live with my grandparents and wasn't brought up in a nudist environment. Despite this, I was always taught decent morals and values. I learned not to despise, but to express feelings of courtesy and respect towards every person.

I 've always disliked waking up in the morning before school and trying to find an ensemble that is both appealing and cozy. Often times, the trousers are too tight or too loose, as well as the shirts are too short, or way too large. There is only one outfit that always appears to feel and look just right... my birthday suit! There are times when clothing is necessary obviously. I would not work around saw blades and torches while in jewelry class in the buff, just as I wouldn't take a shower with my clothes on. In exactly the same way, I really don't see a problem with a family going nude around the privacy of their own home. I frequently go sunbathing in my backyard. We even have another home in a more secluded area where I spend the majority of my time nude walking along the trails or swimming in the lake. This has now become my favourite part of the summertime!

Nudism is in , shape, or form about showing off or "parading around naked" as so many believe it to be. It's all about freedom of choice and relaxation in a non-sexual setting. Initially, I had a rough time when attempting to differentiate between sex and nudity. For the majority of my life society had sent me the message that nudity is shameful and indecent. This demonstrates that when taught something at an early age, you'll likely believe in it no matter if it's really right or wrong. I simply do not see the damage in a couple taking a nude jog down the road to attempt to keep cool, or a teen boy or girl not wrapping a towel around them first thing when they get out of the shower because they're proud of their bodies and trusting to those they care about most. All of us have genitals - there are not any secrets about that. Nevertheless, in a public beach setting it is becoming more acceptable to wear tiny bikinis where over 75% of the body is showing, yet nudity is looked on to be offending in the exact same area.

The above mentioned reasons are mainly what set the stage for me personally to take the plunge into the unknown and test out nudism for myself! While surfing the web one afternoon, I happened to come across a web site relating to this matter. I was 15 years old as of this time, and hadn't yet made the division between the idea of sex and harmless nudity. I believed that naturism was practiced by adults only. This really is where I was in for a large surprise! The first thing I noticed were the pictures the site had neatly laid out. Many of them included young children, adolescents, as well as entire families enjoying the benefits of nude recreation. Two things clued me in that this was not pornography. Individuals in the photos weren't perfect looking models wearing makeup, or posing in a sexual manner. I also understood that if this was in fact porn, the website would not last long without any legal troubles. I then decided to click the link that brought up some text, knowing that it was there for a motive as well. Just as every other site I
