Delighted to see a new section for naturists. I've often been tempted to start a thread but not sure how it would be greeted. Now that there is a dedicated section there seems to excuse not to.
So, just wondering what led you to decide to dip your toe into the world of naturism? We British seem to have quite a different attitude to being naked outdoors and in company and I thought it would be interesting to hear what brought you to your decision.
For us, it was a wild camping stop at a lagoon near Leucate, on the Mediterranean coast of France, about 30km south of Narbonne.
It was a wonderfully calm evening and we were sitting out watching the sun set over the lagoon when Bill announced he had an overwhelming desire to 'get his kit off'. I was surprised to say the least. We've both got a fairly liberal approach to nudity but the most daring either of us had ever gone was stripping off in the back yard on a summer's day. He said he just really really fancied walking around with the warm wind on his body. I think I said something along the lines of, "Yes, dear, that sounds nice".
Well, you could have knocked me over with a (large) feather, when next thing, he comes out of the van as naked as the day he was born and starts walking around.
It was a very very weird feeling if I'm honest watching my husband walking up and down in front of me, outside, exclaiming, "this is great, come on, try it!".
I didn't try it but it did get me thinking. That incident, and the fact that he didn't stop going on and on (and bloody on) about it for the next week or so eventually got me thinking that maybe there was something in it after all. He seemed to so happy with it, elated even and said it was one of the most wonderful experiences of his life. I guess I just thought, I'm going to get me some of that....
And so, in secret, I planned for us to go to our first ever naturist campsite.....
So - what made you decide to take the plunge?
