Enough Already. You Can Be A Nudist Too
This is a question I field a lot: “Am I too old to participate in nudism?” My answer is always “No.” You’re never too old or young to participate in nudism. The key word here is “participate.” If you sole intent is to gawk you won’t be appreciated (and we know who you are). If you’re there for the sun and the liberating effects of being nude in communal settings, enjoy communicating with happy, open people, joining a volley ball match without hesitation, that sort of thing, you’re always welcome. Your age is irrelevant.
Men have told me young women don’t want to see old men in the nude. That may be true for some young women, but what other people enjoy seeing is up to them. If you’re relatively fit chances are no one will think you’re an eyesore. Just as your tastes discriminate, so do everyone else’s, which is completely out of your control. That you might enjoy seeing young naked women and teens doesn’t mean you’re a pervert or have crossed whatever etiquette lines are drawn in the various nudist communities. Everyone looks. Every sees. That’s the democratic aspect of nudism. You can’t be selective in either direction.
As an older nudist myself I simply observe the normals rules of social etiquette on a nude beach. I give people their space if they want it, I willingly let others into my own if they so wish. I’ve played nude volley ball with teenagers as well as candidates for the geriatric set. I’ve done nude yoga with exquisitely charming naked women without a second thought. I’ve danced naked around a fire with nubile Eastern Europeans. It’s fun.
One old acquaintance from school days bemoaned the fact (before nudism had even come up in our conversation) that he’d never sleep with a younger woman again, let alone see one naked. I mentioned that, well, we’d had our time, but there was no rule saying we couldn’t meet a younger woman down the road and have an harmless fling, providing the planets aligned properly. Anyway, I brought up nudism and said you could always see younger women naked on nudist beaches. He said, yes, but they would not want to see him there, to which I said hogwash. It had nothing to do with his right to be there, and frankly, nudism was open to all ages.
There is nothing more beautiful in the world than youthful womanhood. I consider it a blessing I can still partake of their beauty, if not always their flesh. At my age (58) I’m simply happy to share the same sunshine and cool seas with them, frolicking as they do, without much concern for anything but having a good time. As a single older gent of some means I have the freedom to do a circuit of nudist beaches every year. Some men spend their free time and money pursuing golf. What you do is up to you.
But let your age stop you from doing anything. Even nudism.
