Social Nudism from a Teenager's POV

As an average teenager within America, there are various challenges that I face on an almost daily basis. Overall I am quite satisfied with my current, irrespective of the changes that have occurred in the past several years. I now consider myself to be at the peak of my life. I've reached the best point where I am finally finding who I am and what my true purpose is. For these reasons, feel there are various influences which have shaped my life for the better. I owe a great deal to my buddies, family, and change of lifestyle.

I have taken a solid interest in nudism inside the last year as well as a half. I really like the feeling of being free and not needing to worry about society's everyday hassles. When naked, I feel more like myself. The sole time I feel out of place is when I am around others who usually do not share my same sense of freedom. This is understandable however, since not everybody is comfortable using their nudity in the manner in which that I 'm. Part of being a naturist to me is respecting others as well as how they choose to live and the things they opt to wear or to not wear. I live with and was not brought up in a nudist environment. Despite this, I had been always taught decent morals and values. I learned to not despise, but to express feelings of courtesy and respect towards .

I 've always disliked waking up in the morning before school and trying to find an ensemble that's both appealing and cozy. Often times, the pants are excessively tight or too loose, and also the tops are too short, or way too large. There is only one outfit that always seems to feel and look just right... my birthday suit! You will find times when clothing is necessary naturally. 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 the exact same manner, I actually don't see a problem with a family going nude around the privacy of their own house. I regularly go sunbathing in my own backyard. We also carry another home in a more secluded area where I spend nearly all my time nude walking along the trails or swimming in the lake. It has now become my favourite section of the summertime!

Nudism is in no manner, shape, or form about showing off or "parading around naked" as so many believe it to be. It's about freedom of choice and relaxation in a non-sexual setting. Initially, I had a difficult 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 shows that when taught something at an early age, you'll probably believe in it no matter if it is really right or wrong. I just do not see the damage in a couple taking a nude jog down the road to try to keep cool, or a teenage boy or girl not wrapping a towel around them first thing when they get out of the shower because they are proud of their bodies and trusting to those they care about most. All of us have genitals - there aren't any secrets about that. Nonetheless, in a public beach setting it has become 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 reasons are mainly what set the stage for me to take the plunge to the unknown and test out nudism for myself! While surfing the web one afternoon, I happened to come across a web site connecting to the theme. I was 15 years old only at that time, and had not yet made the division involving the idea of sex and harmless nudity. I believed that naturism was practiced by adults only. This is where I was in for a huge surprise! The very first thing I noticed were the pictures the site had neatly laid out. A lot of them included young children, teens, as well as entire families enjoying the advantages of nude recreation. Two things clued me in that this wasn't porn. The men and women in the photographs were not 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 the legal problems. 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 website I have visited since this one, it featured an incredibly healthy and positive outlook of the nudist lifestyle.

There are many areas of that I haven't been able to understand. Not once have I felt the necessity to fight or be considered "popular" in school. It's necessary at times to simply be assertive to let other know you're not one to be picked on. I'm loving my life much more without being involved in the never ending popularity struggle. Instead, I prefer to be known and liked, but not talked about behind my back. This way there's no pressure on me and I could choose my own personal friends, rather than thinking I have to belong only to some specific group. Overall, I'm a peaceful one who gets along well with almost everyone. I'm very turned off by things such as hate and discrimination. This is another reason why I've adopted the nudist lifestyle. Everyone is treated equal among naturists, and also a warm sense of community shines on through.

Nudism is a healthy lifestyle for nearly everyone who is curious inside, regardless of age or foundation. Many families all over the world already participate. When you along with the others around you're nude, the atmosphere becomes considerably more friendly and tolerant. The body is understood to be a portion of nature, and consequently is nothing to be embarrassed of. When bare, there is nothing to hide behind any longer. All that's left is the great awareness of freedom which is nothing short of amazing
