My first nude experience was when I was younger and very much by accident. I went to a beach with a very long coastline on the more isolated end. I didn't see anyone around and I knew that nudism was tolerated so I completely disrobed and laid completely exposed in the sun.|
I saw a topless woman approaching and quickly covered up - being nude outside was completely natural, being nude in front of others was not. She smiled as she walked by and I just blushed - I was so prudish about public nudity that even seeing others in a state of undress made me uncomfortable. When she was out of site, I once again uncovered and decided I wanted to go for a swim. I have been an avid swimmer, a life gaurd in fact, so I decided to swim further down the coast and come back. Swimming nude was quite liberating! I did that and went past many of the crowded parts of the beach. After a while the current was too strong to turn back and I realized I had only one option, to walk back on the beach.
I must say that was one of the most uncomfortable moments of my life. I walked out of the water, covering my genitals with my hands. As I came to shore, I noticed that everyone was naked and seemed so natural. I still covered up, but was getting a little more comfortable with myself. Although I was very athletic and fit, I had always been sensitive about the size of my penis and all my pubic hair but when I saw people of all shapes, sizes and ages I realized that I was fine however I was.
I let go, literally, and was free. It was quite a walk back. Being nude where everyone was nude was natural but I soon I had a new challenge. Although nudity was tolerated everyone on the beach, the most popular section was where almost everyone wore bathing suits, toplessness was common but I saw only one completely nude person. Aside from that, it was very crowded. I had no choice but to keep on going and I continued walking nude. People looked at me - I was probably the only nude person they had seen for a while - but I kept on going. It is ackward being nude in front of others when they are not but I learned to deal with it. When I finally reached my clothes, I was a nudist for life.
When I went back to my apartment with my friends, male and female, I told them about my experience. I told them too how good it felt and asked if they minded if I went nude in our apartment, they did not. Since then I spend as much of my time nude as possible and don't care whose looking.
