Nudist in the House.
It can be, and is, a real thrill to be sneaky about nudity. There’s always the chance of getting caught. There’s the risk of what might happen. A lingering question of, “How far can I go?”
But that’s not what we’re really asking. We’re really asking, “What would it be like to live like this all the time?” The issue is admitting it to ourselves and acting on it.
It’s scary admitting something personal. Especially when a game or passing fancy turns out to play a very active role in our lives. What it comes down to is knowing ourselves and our families.
Honesty is a key component of nudity and a healthy family. It’s unreasonable to be 100% honest. There are some things our families may not want to know or understand. But it doesn’t matter as long as we are being honest with ourselves.
Nudism isn’t about hiding who we are. It’s about finding out more about ourselves and enjoying our life. If we find we enjoy being nude in whatever form it takes, we need to admit it to ourselves and embrace it as part of our lives.
If nudity is a part of our life, then we should find what our families think of it. If they are okay with it then our time of sneaking about might be over. Then let’s see how far can we go?
It’s a big, brave world out there with endless possibilities. Don’t let dishonesty and fear hold you back from what you enjoy.

This is a great little write-up and pulls into the light an important aspect of “personal living” and how the life we imagine for ourselves intersects with the REALITY of the life we actually create – or allow to exist FOR ourselves. Or the world we “permit” to exist all around us; which leads to a question of influence and the degree we collectively shape this reality OR allow it to continue shaping itself.
Naked philosophy, I think.
I have been thinking about this for the past few days, so it is coincidental someone else should write about a related “cause and effect” type scenario!
In one world, we (nudists) exist, have defined beliefs, and conduct ourselves in specific ways, but LARGELY remain isolated from each other and independent.
In another world, we (nudists) believe in a defined existence, follow those beliefs daily while also being open and candid about them, seek to inform others of OUR beliefs, gain a degree of acceptance wherever possible, and also “socially network” with each other as a means of support, reassurance, comfort and growth as a defined group.
Hopefully I have written a useful contrast of the two “Ways of Living” in the last two paragraphs and each reader will find something true for themselves in one of the two! Networking and “outing” ourselves is not for every nudist, in fact some prefer to keep their passion FOR nudity a confidential thing, a personal thing, and share it only with the very closest family – and that is okay.
Time and time again, over the past two decades I have read personal accounts, some undoubtedly true and some a bit fictional or embellished, where persons admitting a LOVE of nudity to their close family (such as parents) and being told, ‘Well, as long as you only do it at home, make certain the Living Room curtains are closed AND keep a robe or dressing gown close by for answering the front door, then “it” (your nudity) will be okay.’
Even this is a great thing! Even this is a beginning!
Even this builds awareness and acceptance!
And yes, this takes courage, focus, discipline and honesty.
Anytime we take ANY closely held belief and USE IT as the basis of our character, as reasoning in all of our actions, consistently, then it BECOMES the definition if who we are as individuals! Sure, it is also possible to be inflexible in our beliefs, and this is where the believer becomes defined as a “fanatic”, zealot, or “that nutty naked guy”; so we use caution and expand others’ awareness of our ways very slowly.
What other beliefs or reasoning do we maintain that may be perceived EXACTLY the same way?
Anyone, anywhere can “go too far” and be unnaturally aggressive in their belief system, and when this happens – when “upset”, imbalance and instability are perceived, then RESISTANCE will be the result! So too may Nudism be perceived, in communities where the body is defined as sacred and holy or something to be hidden and protected; but that is the extreme opposite end of the spectrum of social existence. The covering of bodies from head to toe, but as I wrote earlier (in my mind) this is like taking the greatest works of G-d and putting them in a “museum” where only a privileged few EVER get to appreciate them/ourselves!
I would rather live in a world surrounded by naked beauty, be respectful of nudity everyday (as a personal choice) and conduct myself with reverence for G-d’s work than see some of the other awful ways too many people treat each other!
